I have been instructed by BCBSIL.com to use GoogleChrome as my browser. Their website is no longer compatible with Firefox. Is there an update that Firefox can do so I don't have to change my browser to Google Chrome? It seems BCBSIL is saying only Google Chrome users can access their site now. BCBSIL is trying to direct what browser I use, isn't this illegal?

Got online this morning, and Firefox "upgraded" to a newer version. Now, I have no home page, no bookmarks, no history, etc. This happened several "updates ago, a few years ago, if memory serves. How do I get all those back? Last time, they apparently sent out a "fix". Thanks,

1. Firefox apparently disconnects in Wordpress when making revisions to pages. 2. Toolbar in Firefox does not work when the main tab is open (or is extremely slow - hard to tell the difference). 3. Twitter links to threads, articles and embedded videos does not work most of the time. 4. Everything is slower.

I'm using Windows 8 - and have no intention of upgrading as I am gradually migrating to Linux. Should I revert to older version of Firefox? None of this happened with earlier versions.

Thanks

Hello,

In Firefox's toolbar there is an unknown ad blocker named Ad Blocker. This is NOT Ad Block.

This supposed ad blocker is not blocking ads and cannot be uninstalled; it does not show up as an extension or add-on.

I also interferes with other ad blockers like Ad Block, so I had to uninstall the latter

The symbol for this Ad Blocker in the menu/toolbar at the top is a shadowed, almost invisible, backward hand, the mirror opposite of the hand symbol Ad Block uses as its insignia.

I cannot find any information about this Ad Blocker ad blocker online.

Does anyone know about it and how to get rid of it?

Also - I've run three version of anti-malware software and none found it or got rid of it.

Thank you

Lately, I've been getting too much junk in my inbox. For instance, someone offering me 'rewards', wanting me to 'sign up', etc. i delete them all. For quite a while, my inbox stayed quite 'clean', but what happened, I don't know. Thought I was keeping up with security settings, etc., but maybe i'm missing something ? Above all, though, I'd like to say how satisfied I am with using Firefox-have been using it for a long time ! Never had issues I couldn't solve by asking for help, or just checking settings. Thanks, Firefox !

  1. 1: I hit Firefox tab to open browser and am immediately required to type in Primary Password, entered, presumably accepted.
  2. 2: However, the "Sign In" box reappears a second time requiring re-entering the Primary Password; again primary password is entered (presumably accepted).
  3. 3: Astonishingly, the "Sign In" box reappears a third time requiring typing Primary Password, comply (presumably accepted).

Unbelievably, this continues ... The "Sign In" box reappears, hit cancel. "Sign In" box reappears, hit cancel.

Confusing, Distressing, Exasperating, Annoying, Provoking, Enraging, Unpleasant, Aggravating, Infuriating, etc., etc.

Why? Why? Why? I'm ticked off, want to "throw in the towel" and head back to rival browser.

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.
