If i remember correctly Mozilla earns around 80% of their income from Google. I have said it before and i will say it again, Mozilla claims to stand for Privacy (maybe that was true in the past at some point) while Google is tracking Billions of Human beings 24/7 as they use Google as their Android Operating System, that can be considered very much anti-privacy. (Sadly majority of people either don't care or are to silly to install a different OS on their Phone).

Clearly this looks like a conflict of interest, one company want's privacy while the other one makes their money with tracking human beings and selling their data and then giving a part of that money to mozilla for using google as the default search engine in firefox.

If knownledge is power then how much power does google have? How much do they know about you? Your contacts, location, online searches and history, and so on... I seriously think people should quit google immediately, what this company is doing is literally criminal, unless ofcourse people are once again silly enough to let it happen.

Firefox says on it's website "At Mozilla, we believe that privacy is fundamental to a healthy internet." If true why do you BY DEFAULT have telemetry ENABLED and why do you BY DEFAULT use GOOGLE as search engine?? Something is obviously not right here. What is also very interesting is that this site support.mozilla.org is connected to www.google-analytics.com and to www.googletagmanager.com Im guessing this basically means when i use the mozilla support site or login with my account, google is also gathering data about me.

Google has become the cancer of the internet, way to many sites have it embed aswell as facebook. Shame on all those greedy people who allow this massive privacy invasion just for their own profit. But honestly at the same time, can you really blame them? After all the people who allow this to happen are responsible aswell, this is just disgusting. I woonder if the whole world would like to end up like china, because if not then what in the universe is wrong with people? Wakeup! Delete Google Delete Facebook Delete Tiktok and eventually your brain might be able to function again, install a privacy operatingsystem like lineageos or grapheneos and don't touch any anti privacy app ever again, is it so hard?? Was totally simple for me.

   Interaction data: Firefox sends data about your interactions with Firefox to us (such as number of open tabs and windows; number of webpages visited; number and type of installed Firefox Add-ons; and session length) and Firefox features offered by Mozilla or our partners (such as interaction with Firefox search features and search partner referrals).
   Technical data: Firefox sends data about your Firefox version and language; device operating system and hardware configuration; memory, basic information about crashes and errors; outcome of automated processes like updates, safebrowsing, and activation to us. When Firefox sends data to us, your IP address is temporarily collected as part of our server logs.

=

As a final notice, i don't beleve that this is everything mozilla collects, surely your tight parnership with google analytics is able to identify every single firefox profile and connect it to the person using it.

It periodically blinks and that breaks buttons that open menus and closes context menus from Firefox. Also disables some keys, the tested list is arrows, might need to test that on all. As it's version-independent, it might be a dependency issue. It also happens in safe mode, which is saddening.

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

On many websites I see text such as keyboard_arrow_right obstructing the view of the actual content (see attachment for example). Currently it's just annoying, but it makes it difficult to use websites and often I switch browser to Edge just to get work done on that website. How do I fix this? Or is it just a bug with this latest Firefox version [103.0.2 (64-bit) for Windows 10]?

FF upgraded itself and turned off the lighted keyboard on my tower computer. I can still use the keyboard, but it is not backlit and I want that feature back. Windows help files are non-existant. I have unpluged the keyboard and reconnected it and I did a cold reboot of the computer-no joy. Disabling the keyboard and trying to reinstall it by plugging it in again might work, but doing that is marked "advanced" by windows, so I am afraid to do it without advice. I am running windows 10 and use a Logitech keyboard. I am not a computer techi, so I need advice in baby-talk. VO1TV>

I had posted this earlier and got a response or at least I was sent a link to a post that supposedly dealt with this issue.

That said, my original post was deleted and I cold not repond.

Because I need to say this "fix" isn't permanent, or perhaps I did it wrong. Nevertheless, the fix only takes as long as I have the browser open. If I close it, and reopen it, my view is overly large again.

So, at least for me, my issue with the view in Firefox has not been solved.

Thank you.

Hello, when I click on link with middle mouse button it will open that link on next tab but doesn't "jump" there, which is fine. But when I do the same with pdf links, it will automaticly "jumps" on the pfd file. And I don't want to. I want to open it like normal link (on next tab in background), because I have a lot of pdf files to open, and this makes it difficult to do it qucikly. Before some weeks this wasn't a probem, it started now.

I want to be able to open, say, pdf files and NOT have them saved in the downloads directory unless I mark them to be saved in the open dialogue. Firefox worked that way for years. I reported this as a bug, I think in V.101. After much palaver, some of it irrelevant, the bug was reported fixed, but it has not been.

The bug number — it changed frequently — I last noted down was 1738574.

I've some search engines which was configured a lot of years ago (or maybe was imported from another browser many years ago). They are working in address bar (e.g. I can enter there "cve something", press Enter and get redirected to https://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvekey.cgi?keyword=something), but not listed neither in about:preferences#search nor in my profile's search.json.mozlz4 (I've unpacked and checked it - it contents does match about:preferences#search). I've tried to grep for "cvekey.cgi" in my profile folder but get no results (I suppose these "hidden" search engines are stored in some sqlite file).

I'd like to have these hidden search engines listed in about:preferences#search. I can even manually re-add them, but how can I find complete list of all configured search engines?

Today, web pages started showing small numbered boxes behind each element on a webpage. As you move down the page, the numbers are in sequence. I tried the font settings. They are all set at what they should be. I also tried the config settings, no joy. If I restart in troubleshooting mode, the boxes go away. Note: I am using Linux Mint, and Firefox just updated yesterday to V103.0.2. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello. I have had an issue with new tabs not opening in Firefox for about two days. My browser is updated to the latest version. The best way to describe the issue is like this: every time I boot up the browser, everything will be working fine. Then, within 4-5 minutes, tabs will stop opening. Every time I want to open a new webpage in a new or already existing tab, it will get eternally stuck on the loading stage. However, if I have something like a youtube playlist running in one of the tabs, it will switch from video to video with no problem. If I close the browser and try to open in again, it won't open (although I've already figured out that the latest issue can be solved with an administrator mode). Other browsers are working fine and don't have such issue.

I have tried reloading the browser, reloading the computer, cleaning cache/history/cookies, running the browser without any addons, running the debug mode, reinstalling the browser (twice), running the antivirus check, creating a new firefox profile. Nothing helps. Also, the problem persists in the debug mode - when I open it, the pages load for 3-5 minutes and then the tabs stop opening as well.

Please suggest what can I do to fix this issue.

Hello !

I am using ff latest ver 103.0.1 on Windows-10-Enterprise-22H2-19045.1865-x64. When I go to drive.google.com/ it redirects me immediately to their support site displaying page : https://support.google.com/drive/answer/6283888?visit_id=##################-##########&p=unsupported_browser&rd=1

hash is a single decimal digit above.

On the support page, there is a button labeled "Update your browser". On clicking that ff opens another tab showing website : https://updatemybrowser.org/

This website says my ff version is 45. I wonder where did they get this number from .... !

So I installed a user agent editor extension ( https://mybrowseraddon.com/custom-useragent-string.html ).

Now updatemybrowser.org says I am using latest ff. But Google Drive still redirects me to their support site.

Same behaviour seen in ff safe mode when all extensions are disabled.

What do I do to access the Google Drive page?

Thank you.

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?
