There's a social media website I want to get notifications for so that when I get a couple messages I can quickly respond, however I do not like how when I get a ton of notifications in a short time, it gets annoying and can block parts of the screen. I was wondering if there's any trick that could be done to limit notification frequency without disabling them entirely. I'm on Windows 10 if there's an OS specific solution.

Hi, When I run Firefox and use YoutubeTV I get slowness from internet. When I run YoutubeTV on Edge no problems. I have tried running it on Firefox in safe mode and with Bitdefender disabled still have issue. Please see attached screen shots. The delays of up to 3 seconds cause browser slowness when I try to browse to get details of something I am watching like on IMBD etc. I have been a long time user of Firefox and really don't like having to use Edge as my YoutubeTV browser.

Hey I was just trying to login to my account after I created a new windows and I got this issue The confirmation email we sent to *********@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account

Well can you just unlock my account as I know the password and have big data needed there. Also this email is closed by google and I mean closed not forgotten so it won't receive any emails.

I often try out different linux distros and so by proxy log into firefox on new OS's quite often. The problem im having is that after syncing my FF acc onto a new device it syncs my blank homepage as my new homepage for all my devices and removes my shortcuts. I would very much like to have all my shortcuts synced on all my devices and not have to set them up on all my OS's/New FF sessions (especially my main widows machine that doesn't change). Any tips? I would even take having to set up new shortcuts on my new browsers, i just hate losing the shortcuts on my main desktop.

Hi, I have set my default application for .pdf to be Microsoft Edge. So for example, when I open a .pdf in the file explorer it opens up in the Edge browser. When I open a .pdf in the download menu in Firefox the file does open in a pdf-explorer version of Edge. That is Edge will kinda open a new application just to show the .pdf, with no options for tabs or in general work as a web browser, it will only be a .pdf viewer. I would prefer for Firefox to open the .pdf in the normal Edge browser. Is there any way I can fix that?

I recently noticed that FF automatically deletes all the cookies with every new update. I'm currently on 94.0.2 (64-bit) installed on a Windows 10 PC

My old profile was changed and I switched back to it as well.

This makes me not wanting to update FF. Please fix this bug.

Note: NO, I haven't opt out for the option : delete data automatically on browser exit.

I have the same problem as [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/use.../own404410|@Sky] at "[Addons for Normal and Developer Edition separately]". I would like to present the problem from my side and propose a not difficult but useful solution.


"Synced Addons *and settings* for Normal and Developer Edition separately" is a feature I need and require from Mozilla. I don't want to have developer-only extensions and settings from Developer Edition in the normal browser. I also don't want to create a separate account because I won't be able to view Developer Edition browser content on my phone.

The best would still be share search history and bookmarks with both browsers and the phone.

"Synchronization channel selection function and synchronization content" could be a solution. On a normal browser I create a "normal" synchronization channel and there I choose all the elements to be synchronized. On Developer Edition I create a new "developer" channel and choose sync: history, tabs, bookmarks, addons and settings. Additionally, I choose the existing "normal" channel for synchronization of history and bookmarks. And I sync my phone with the normal channel.

Please consider such a feature in Firefox browsers ;)))
