I am really tired of FF notifying me that an update is available. Every few minutes for the entire session. I know when I want or if I want to upgrade. Let me decide. Let me disable the notifications.

Is there a way to turn of update noticications once and for all? Thanks

Several days ago, Firefox started giving me what seem to be mobile versions of some sites (mostly Google Drive and Docs) instead of the desktop layouts I want. (It's URL comes up with "mobile" even when I type in the hard way.) The problem does not affect all sites, but it does mess up several daily. I did not deliberately change my preferences or otherwise alter Firefox.

I have tried bringing Firefox up in safe mode and even removing it and downloading it again. No change.

i also "reset the default user agent on Firefox" per this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1304470

Help would be much appreciated. I like Firefox much better than the alternatives, but if this doesn't get fixed I will have to give up on it.

Many thanks.

I just installed the latest v90 upgrade. I get at least 5 sometimes as many as 7 instances of Firefox running simultaneously. Look at my screen shot of the Task Manager...Holy Sh*t! I attempted to downgrade back to v89, but Mozilla has made this option unbearable ...have to recreate your profile, all your passwords, cookies and bookmarks, an incredible hassle. Stuff like this just shouldn't happen.

Definitely NOT a well-thought out release.

Guess I'll be migrating to Chrome sooner than I thought!?

I saw some warning regarding a certain cert of auth, and in checking that feature out, saw a bunch of sites that I never visit, and thought I'd "clean up." Now NOTHING works. I tried to undelete them, but that didn't work.

I know I could uninstall and reinstall, but I'm afraid that Firefox will recognize my account and reinstate all my settings including the unwanted changes of certificates of authority. I just want to reset Firefox to whatever default status it comes with without losing all my bookmarks and passwords - is that even possible?

    Hello there,

    since the FF90.xx I can´t paste anymore in the World of Tank EU forum. I did refresh firefox and tried it without addons and in private mode and it does not work. The only chance that I can paste is in the mobile version from the used IP.Board. I can´t even see the paste/einfügen option in the posting section.

    I have some other members inside the community that reported the same issue to me.

    It would be nice to get some help/ideas.

    With best regards.

    I've been using Firefox for many years on multiple PC's. However, for some unknown reason, now, my Firefox browser is no longer functioning at all. I see the Icon on my machine, I can double click on it. It opens and the body is "BLANK". all my saved and frequent websites links are gone. I can't do anything with this?? My bookmarks to the Right are still there but if I try to open one up - NOTHING happens. I've never encountered this odd behavior before. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas about how I can fix this? I don't like using Chrome and MS Edge.. I want my Firefox back.  :( thank you!!

    I have a very new PC running WIN10 Pro 64bit ver 21H1. Have downloaded the latest recent version: 78.12.0

    One running the exe, it extracts, then reports "Sorry, Thunderbird can'r be installed. This version MS WIN7 x64 or newer..."

    Also tried earlier versions 78.10.2 and 72.0b3 with same result, and the .msi versions which just fail but report nothing.

    Something clearly very wrong. Had no issues installing Firefox 89.0.2.

    Have spent well over an hour fiddling with this, including many reboots.

    (I also installed a much earlier version on my WIN XP machine as I wanted to create a TB profile by importing MS Outlook data. I had no problems with this.)

    I have been using Yahoo email and Firefox together for years, and just this week I am unable to attach a file to an outgoing message. When I hit the "paper clip" to attach the screen goes to the File Explorer like usual to browse for the file, but it just sits there and spins. Then it says "not responding" on the top left at the Firefox icon.

    I tried it in Chrome and had no problem at all.

    Anybody got a clue?
