Windows 10 Firefox 88/89 64-bit PC It seems there was a compact mode before version 89? I don't know if that's what I want.

I would like to have a simple selection in FF Preferences to turn OFF the Proton stuff. I am not an IT geek and I'm not comfortable doing things like changing CSS code - if I knew how to do that stuff, I'd be using Linux not Windows. Since I'm stuck with Windows, I rely on a good browser like FF v.88 to take care of the technical stuff.

Version 89 seems to be OK with Proton shut off, but I hear this is a temporary fix. I also don't know if shutting off Proton fixed the spacing nightmare in Bookmarks - I lost mine reloading v.88 and haven't had a chance to look for them. (v.89 is on the PC upstairs - this one is still on v.88.)

For some context on the anger at FF's change, those of us who use Facebook on a regular basis were forced into a horrendous update in late 2021 which barely works, and Facebook continuously changes code, fixing what isn't broken. To find that the browser we've relied on for years did the same with no warning is very upsetting.

I'd like to get a message directly to Mozilla but "Submit Feedback" has been shut down for over a week.

Suddenly, cache is not emptying when 'Clear data' is used. Also suddenly, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' preference is faded out/ unavailable. 'Never remember history' is checked as usual but cache does not clear when Firefox is closed. All cookies and data cleared without problem 2 days ago. This has never happened before.

I'm asking if it's possible for Firefox to Not Share USER Personal Data with Google Chrome. I have set all my preferences in Firefox browser to not share, be secure, use private browser, etc. to a the extent possible based on settings. I don't have "location services" turned on on my Mac or Ipad mini and yet some things open up and they know where I am. I feel like I've lost any ability to maintain privacy and that I feel I cannot control it as even setting up settings, I'm aware that some coding only gives impression your safe but in fact YOU ARE NOT!! I am security conceous to a fault and yet I don't feel safe on either device. Can Mozilla/Firefox stop sending user data to Google Chrome to help with keeping privacy user personal data. I saw an article recently that says they are testing .05 of their users to in effect "from MY PERSONAL OPINION" they are stealing this data for them to use WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Government protections are not kept up to speed and using a computer these days seems to insist that I give up my personal rights to MY DATA. It's ALWAYS MY DATA and not theirs... Using a "any service" does not make it your data but they do have a responsibility to keep it safe and it should not be shared out side MY express consent. It seems we are losing that ability more and more. So I'm asking if Mozilla can stop sharing USER PERSONAL DATA with Google Chrome?

I'm new to the community. I have tried searching, but I can't find the answer. See my screen shot attachment for version and build details.

Web pages automatically refresh when I leave Fire Fox and come back. Let's say I'm trying to set up a log on for a new forum. The web site will send a confirmation code to mmt email. I go to that app to get the code. Then I come back to Fire Fox to enter the code. The page will automatically reload, and mess up the whole process.

How do I stop the auto reload?

If I have to use "about:config" then I have another issue. I can't open it. When I type that into my address bar nothing happens.

I'm loving forward to learning more about Fire Fox.

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

so for a while now, I don't know exactly but it has lasted throughout several updates, a bunch of my add-ons have decided to not show up in any menu where I can actually use them, they are listen in the actual add-ons manager and they are all enabled and up-to-date. I have un- and reinstalled all of the absentees several times over, I have done the reset thingy in the tool bar customization menu and have followed just about every piece of advice for similar issues on this forum and many others yet the majority of my add-ons still choose to feign non-existence. if it's helpful at all the culprit that alerted me to the problem was the YouTube Enhancer but it actually extends retroactively to add-ons I had installed way before that one that used to work fine. Also, and I can't say this with 100% certainty, I think at this point this problem applies to every new add-on I install, obviously I have only really seen it happen with the few add-ons I installed since this whole thing started so who knows if I'm just having bad luck picking add-ons that are shy. I have also disabled and re-enabled the add-ons that actually work and generally shifted everything around I case the 4 working add-ons are somehow blocking the all the others from being shown. I really really hope someone can help me with this because it's kind of frustrating being completely unable to actually use the majority of my add-ons :/

I realize now if I don't immediately allow updates then my ability to start up my computer after shutting down is delayed for ... an hour or more. I don't want to allow updates, as they are becoming more frequent; i can only assume they are in league with the likes of a microsoft update which is, essentially, a fishing device to scan my computer to record my searches and communications so they might sell that information, or, for other more nefarious reasons. i HAVE stopped the ability to update from Windows - internally. Just because I'm paranoid doesn't mean "they're" not out to get me, right? Funny, huh? There's one other thing, however. I can't communicate with customers. And when I can't communicate with customers, I LOSE MONEY. ... fix it. I don't mean a patch over a patch over another patch. Maybe a line of code? Anybody there?? That's what I thought.
