Hi,

Recently I noticed this issue:

1. I start Firefox. 2. I click on a bookmark which is on the bookmark toolbar. 3. The page seems to initiate navigation to that bookmark, but eventually stays (it never navigates). 4. I click again on the same bookmark. 5. Then, Firefox navigates to it.

I tried disabling Addons and disabling Hardware Acceleration, but it didn't help to fix the issue. This was suggested in this archived thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1245362

A similar issue happens when I'm already in GMail website and then click on another bookmark, but it refreshes the GMail instead of navigating to the other bookmark. (I hope to reproduce it soon and tell you the results.)

Using Ubuntu 18.04.

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

I use Firefox for Mac ver. 79.0 and up until now when I logged on to htpps:www.michiganlottery.com and enabled location it always worked until now. I read an article that said Mozilla was sued for the code used for location and that Mozilla will be creating their own location services soon and giving users like myself something like a PIN number that is good for say 10,000 uses. Is that true and is the reason my location when enabled doesn't work anymore? Could you email me the procedure to enable if I missed something to: compute38209@aol.com Thank you.

Firefox location service causing wifi intermittent connection.

Every time I'm using location service at a website via Firefox, whether it's Google Map, or any other website that has a map build-in with pinpoint my location feature, when I want to know where I am on the map, Firefox just cut down my wifi connection. The connection seems to be intermittent, meaning: computer will receive packets for couple seconds, and then it will pause for no reason, with zero packet transmission, then suddenly it will start receiving packets again and it goes on and on. Sometimes, the connection just cuts off completely for a minutes or two, just like a resetting, with no information being transferred.

I am using a USB wifi extender just for better signal receiving. This situation only happens with Firefox browser, Chrome and Edge have no problem at all. I've tried many helps from online, such as: disable IPV6, disable DNS prefetch, change a different network, disable all adds-on. None of these helped my problem.

Any ideas what should I do next?

For about the last 5 hours, when I download Firefox, nothing syncs after I log in -- no add-ons, no bookmarks, no history. I've seen no mention of this on the support page.

I first noticed this about 3 pm Sunday, EDT.

Is no one else experiencing this?

Not a big deal, but it's clearly new in the last week? or so: Here's a webpage with lots of forum links on it: https://www.bogleheads.org/index.php Clink a link, takes you to that post's thread. Then go back to first page (click left arrow, or type alt-<) and there are all the same links you first saw, BUT the one you just visited would normally have changed to indicated it's now a visited link (my default scheme is blue to purple). The "PROBLEM" is (like I said, not huge) that now the link is NOT changing to purple, it stays blue. If I click within a blank space within the the page, sometimes that makes the color change happen, but sometimes not. There's some sort of "refresh" that's not taking place (reliably) like it used to. Going to the same link a 2nd time and then back seems invariably to change that link's color.

Like I said, it's NOT a big issue, but it IS real, and it's NEW! That's all.
