All I see in these community things are The QUESTIONS on the topic but NO SOLUTION. WHAT happened to Firefox, it used to actually WORK! Now it just ignores what I say and does it anyway. I have it checked and unchecked where it is suppose to be so that it DOES NOT update! YET it still does it! SO when is Firefox going to give SOLUTIONS instead of just adding another question to the same stuff... we know a lot of people are having the same problem... SO when are you guys going to wake up and FIX IT!

I switched to the ESR version in order to continue including user notes with each Bookmark (on the Notes tab). This feature was removed from the regular version of Firefox some time ago, and this has been an effective workaround.

Bookmarks are still working properly on my Windows 10 laptop running Firefox Quantum 60.4.0esr. However I loaded the same version on a newly-purchased Windows 10 laptop and I'm unable to add, move or edit Bookmarks - or add new folders on that device. I've tried every solution suggested on this site, to no avail (refresh; try Safe Mode; edit my Profile Folder; reboot; uninstall and reinstall Firefox; etc).

Today I tried upgrading to Firefox Quantum 60.5.0esr and the problem persists. I can no longer use Bookmarks at all.

I don't understand why Mozilla keeps implementing changes that stop Bookmarks from functioning properly. The main reason I've always used and supported Mozilla browsers (starting with Netscape Navigator!) is the superior Bookmarks feature.

PLEASE FIX BOOKMARKS, AND DON'T MAKE ANY FURTHER CHANGES!

Shift+Delete no longer works to remove these erroneous results. I've never heard of, used, visited, or wanted to visit "http://nycsubway.org/" or anything related to it, but now firefox's "awesome" bar sends me there instead of Netflix, which I use daily. I've turned off all the random suggestions for the address bar but these random, wrong, ads keep popping up. If I've never used it, and I'm not searching for it, putting it there must mean "http://nycsubway.org/" has paid you to be an annoyance in or lives. Or why else would you do this?!

Hi,

I was helping out a client and found a weird issue.

2010 iMac, 16GB RAM, 500GB SSD, clean install of OS X High Sierra.

This Mac passes all Apple Hardware Tests, the SSD is new, the RAM is good, the GPU is fine as well.

I can run Chrome or Safari with a dozen or more tabs open running video and it's fine. I have 6 Adobe CS apps open and testing, it's fine.

As soon as I run Firefox and have more than 3 tabs going. the screen goes black or I get the scrambled pink and green video artifacts that point at a failing GPU.

Stranger still... with zero other apps installed or system add-ons running, the third time I was able to replicate the behavior, I restarted... and the High Sierra install was broken and I had to reinstall clean from scratch. (A huge waste of my time by the way).

I did find the black screen issue in your forums:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1219380#answer-1116117

I turned off hardware acceleration, I am running the current video drivers for this Radeon card.

I burned an entire day of my life troubleshooting this issue. Because it presented itself as a GPU issue and these 2010 iMacs eventually cook their GPUs, I started there... because I'm not a daily Firefox user, it never occurred to me that your software was at fault.

Because I don't want to test your myriad solutions to get back to zero, my recommendation to my client is to not use your product in it's current incarnation on older hardware. As I stated before, Chrome and Safari current versions cause zero problems and frankly, that's a quicker fix.

Hi all,

After searching and applying several settings, I am still getting those annoying messages, popups and whatsoever. No matter what I do. I always preferred Firefox as my most favorable browser for many, many years, however I noticed that I started using Chrome more and more because of all these little annoyances.

The last few things I tried are:

about:config dom.webnotifications.enabled (false) dom.push.enabled (false) dom.webnotifications.serviceworker.enabled (false) (for notifications)

about:config media.autoplay.allow-muted (false) media.autoplay.default (2) (for autoplay media)

These ones didn't help: media.autoplay.enabled.user-gestures-needed (false) media.autoplay.ask-permission (false)

Though media doesn't autoplay, I do get a notifcation about if I want to play the media or something similar. Sigh.

Also the help page on Firefox doesn't help at all, like this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay For example; I don't have the "For websites that autoplay sound"-option at all there. See screenshot included.

So what I am trying to here (maybe someone can give me the exact config options):

1. Disable permantly the auto-play function for all media and for all websites 2. Disable every single notification type; I don't want to be asked if I want to play media/sound/music, nor do I want to be asked if I want website notifications or any other kind of notification. I don't want to see a single message at all!!

I hope someone can give me the right settings and/or what to change to make this happen permantly. It's driving me nuts....! Seriously. NUTS! :S

Sidenote; I am also experiencing issues with Firefox on my OnePlus 6T. Sometimes when I enter an URL it doesn't load at all, the screen stays white and doesn't do anything. Closing and starting the app doesn't help. The only solution (sometimes) is to close all my tabs (doesn't matter if it's 10, 40 or 99 tabs). If that fails the solution is a reboot of the phone. And no, it's not the internet connection because a) Chrome wouldn't work, b) nor my other apps. I do use Synchronization between my accounts. The OnePlus 6T was a fresh installation from a couple of weeks ago. Before that (and on my other phone) I had this issue also....

Maybe someone can shed some light as well on the Android issue??

Thank you in advance!

Regards

I've tried to find a workaround but the only thing that I find is to "select all tabs" and then bookmark, but then if I want to "unselect" tabs I have to do it one at a time. If this is an intentional change and not a bug it is a stupid one that mozilla should fix. Adding steps to accomplish something simple is not an improvement.

Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.

It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.

Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO. So basically Firefox is only useful to me if

  • I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
  • For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.

For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.

On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)

1 Cookie Controller

2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar

3 Session Manager

4 New Add On Bar

5 Add Bookmarks Here

6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length

7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab

8 Download Status Bar

9 AutoPin Tab

10 Close Tab Button

11 Tab Open/Close Control

12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.

Any practical advice?

Went back in history to when one particular website would load and now get an error message on that. This is since the last update. Tried a couple other browsers. Worked fine. Tried the fix recommended by Firefox. Did nothing. (Something to do with proxy settings.)

Now when I search, I get Amazon almost all of the time instead of a variety of options.

Is Firefox now beholden to Amazon?

I used to really really like Firefox and have been using it for years. Is it time to switch to Google Chrome?

Dear Whomever,

Isn’t it just grand that the almighty Firefox doesn’t work for all websites while Internet Explorer has no trouble or problems whatsoever? I recently (since the “Upgrade,” I believe) lost my ability to Log-In to my “Capital One” account (what I have been repeatedly getting is “We seem to have hit a snag.”). However, when I tried using my Internet Explorer, I had no trouble. The “brilliance” of Mozilla never ceases to amaze, but more appropriately, frustrate.

Respectfully,

Gregory P. Falasz

Firefox is beginning to become more of an annoyance than it is worth - most of the reason for this is the continual string of updates, messages, click bars and pop ups it shows on start up.

No these are not spam or bad add ins, they are programmed interruptions inherent to FF.

Users of FF want to get on and do things. Having to close windows with news about the latest update (and there are soooo many updates), or news that the opml feed is now on your desktop (another thing to waste time attending to) or messages about privacy or messages about syncing pages and settings or pop up messages about how FF is private etc are just plain annoying.

It is getting to the point where I expect to wait longer for FF to start and then have to wade through cruft, than it takes to boot the entire Windows 10 OS and deal with the Ms cruft on the log in screens.

If people want to learn, then they will look stuff up. So seriously - stop popping up tabs, notices, messages, dialog boxes and other cruft. Let the users just get on with using FF rather than putting up with cruft about using FF.

FF is now officially slower to start than every other browser we have and slower than me booting an entire windows 10 pc - all because of continuous updates which don't seem to do anything for me - or most users. oh sure, you can say its for security but if you are patching security holes as regularly as you are updating FF then there is something terribly wrong in your programming standards and coding methodologies - not to mention test process.

Its a trend to tell people about your product - but its one that annoys users. We just want to get on with using whatever - so please get out of our way and let us just use the product.

I like FF - but I liker it a lot less than I used to as its now annoying the crud out of me almost every day.

My 10c worth.

Well?

It was there until I firefox was updated without my consent. I was not warned that this would happen when the update was performed. I found this out after the fact. Problem is I still want this function, especially the "open in sidebar" one as that is an actual function (as opposed to the description which merely elaborates a function)

For years I have used Firefox and been able to login to my NatWest Account - suddenly I am no longer able to have this facility. SECURE CONNECTION FAILED - The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data couldn't be verified. Please contact the owners of the website to inform them of this problem.

I looked on your help site to see if there were others with this challenge and found some comments from some sanctimonious prat to the effect that this should be remedied by the website owner and that eventually the website would no longer be able to be accessed by any other browser such as Chrome, Edge etc. Great, but I need to see my bank accounts online and rather than change banks, I am changing to Edge so that I can. Eventually NatWest may have to change their security but until then I am going to move away from Firefox, and, I know I only contribute a small amount to your "cause" every year but I shall take that away as well - you are too "holier than thou" in your approach to security and take no thought of how its implications affect the user.

Yahoo is showing up when I search. I've wasted lots of time selecting Google as my default browser.

Before this annoyance I was very happy with Firefox, now I'm going to see if I'm happy using Chrome.

Looks like you took a page from Apple & U2, another unpleasant foisting of garbage.

I'm so disappointed. And sad to stop using Firefox.

EVERY time I run Firefox it tells me an update is available and asks to update. However, updates to firefox are handled through an external package manager so there is no reason for it to keep harassing me. Up until v.63 this was not a problem as I simply clicked "never check for updates" and let the package manager handle it - as it should. Now some bozo has decided to remove that and try to force an update that will completely screw up my package manager. WTF Mozilla! Are you trying to decrease your user base? Give us back the option to control our updates!

So, I am just curious why the support for full themes was removed? Those themes were actually useful, they made the buttons better sometimes, they made the browser easier to look at without the bright white background that will eventually make someone go blind. Sometimes they added cool functionality, in general they were a heck of a lot more useful than whatever it is you are pushing currently, and they looked 10,000 times better than anything you are pushing currently.

And to add insult to injury, it appears where "Open Link in New Window" used to be. I don't use tabbed browsing. Period. I like to hover over the taskbar and let Windows tell me that browser window's URL.

If it can't be suppressed -- because each Firefox user doesn't really know _their_ own preferences -- why not place the "Container Tabs" right-click entry, below "Open Link in New Private Window"? Then users desiring to use such *new* functionality, will learn (muscle-memory don'cha know) it as they go.

Every time y'all force me after an update to figure out how to resume using Firefox in the matter to which I'm accustomed, I move one step closer to shifting to Chrome entirely. (I still use Firefox to access YouTube, because up until several days ago, I was able to download content with a Firefox add-on.)

BTW. I tried to upload a screenshot of the image. The progress icon has been turning for minutes ... It might work on Chrome, but the image upload functionality is broken with version 63.0.1 (x64).

Your "Pocket" ... your "Bookshelf" icon ... etc. ... I wish y'all would let me suppress the display the meg@Kewl new stuff, which I never use.

I'd like to know why someone was allowed to authorize the removal of the ability to see and edit the description field in the bookmark properties. I'd like to know why that person is still employed at Mozilla if they still are.

I'd like to know why this kind of change wasn't discussed with the users.

I'd like Mozilla to know that this is probably the most unpopular brain dead move you've made in quite some time, it is despised by power users. The information is there, allowing it to be displayed an edited is child's play.

These fields are the primary reason why many people use FF instead of Chrome. You've removed that reason. Kind of a dumb move, isn't it?
