I've read these instructions, I am more frustrated than ever. Why 2 places for bookmarks. Need help getting tabs on toolbar, including basic text, i.e. font. size, color, underline, bold, italics, etc. without getting kicked out of Outlook.live Email- smooth floating writing, background options for email. I need someone to sit next to me for a full day. Is it possible that Firefox and Microsoft 10, Office 365 are clashing?

SEARCH FILE TYPES AND APPLICATIONS (for downloads) I HAVE NO IDEA, Using Windows 7 was very easy, I just named the file in SAVE AS there was a drop down box for downloads, documents, etc. WHY WOULD anyone want their downloads in MS Outlook? As it stands now, I don't know where most of my downloads, documents, photos are located in Firefox. Even in Outlook 365 Word they are all over the place. DO NOT want them in Outlook Word, which is where they seem to go. I have selected web site addresses to download, instead of "save as" it wants the FILE TYPE. I hate every program on my PC, want Windows 7 back and Outlook 2013. I thought Firefox would be easier, heard good things, but right now I could throw it out the window. BTW, I have logged into Grammarly 4 times today, and once again it's asking me to login. I have more logins now than ever before in my computer lifetime. I'm not IT and an engineer, half the words used these days are Greek to me. Been working with computers for over 40 years, DOS, most of Windows programs or Apps or whatever they called these days, always a learning curve, but after 5 months, it's only gotten worse. Every phone call to MS support is a JOKE. 1 person says this, another persons says oh no this is what you need to do!! Printer no longer works after MS big PATCH. I dread calling HP again, but have no choice. Sorry I have just dumped all over you, but I am so angry with all of this I have screamed! I AM SENDING ANOTHER MESSAGE: I copy all messages from websites to Word just in case. When I just copied this information I will show you what came up, PRIME example of " what the hell". Of course, it may have disappeared by now!

>Add-ons is the collective name for:

  • Extensions = programs you add from the add-ons website.

Go to the Mozilla Add-ons Web Page {web Link} (There’s a lot of good stuff here) and search for what you want.

  • Plugins = These are programs that Firefox finds on your system.

Examples are the flash player and anti-virus programs.

  • Appearance = Themes and such

Browsers normally save downloads to a user select folder. Type about:preferences#general<enter> in the address bar Look for 'Downloads'.

Dear Fred McD: Have you looked at the online registration lately for junk email? I would suggest that you do. These government websites are talking about innocuous junk mail. Credit card companies, insurance companies, apparently that haven't seen what real JUNK EMAIL looks like these day.
