I support an individual's right to free thought and belief, not coercion by any group. Mozilla is obviously a spineless, ungrounded, un American organization. I will not use your products as long as Mr Eich is not reinstated.

I will not use Firefox 29 or newer until the crappy interface introduced in v29 it made user friendly, and bring back certain missing thing from v28 (they may be profile holdovers from a much older version), no the classic theme restorer does not bring them back. The above is here simply to try and stop suggestions about using v29

I have tried going into options menu Firefox>Options>Advanced>Never Check for Updates, but that does not prevent updates. I have had to uninstall Firefox 29 5 times today every time after telling it to "Never check for updates."

Dear Sir,

           England alone is a Country without any democrtic representation of it's own!  If you check the terms of The Atlantic Charter of 1941 we were promised an English Democracy by Franklin Delano Rooseveldt and Winston Churchill they said that every Country in Europe would hve a democratic government when the second world war was over..  Since that time Scotland Wales and Northern Ireland  have democracies of their own while we are still ruled by a monarchist pseudo democratic BRITISH government in London Westminster that refuses to recognise that we English exist?

The elected representatives of The British Government are picked before we get to vote in their pre-fixed elections our local government is run by Westminster Whitehall and Windsor all possible avenues of expression by every aspect of the media including the BBC are owned or controlled by Professional Londoners. Many of them are descended from royal families. There are millions of these people they control every aspect of our reality and turn it to serve their own agenda ...thus we English have no democratic representation worthy of the name! sincerely ...an invisible Englishman living in an invisible Country!

locking as a duplicate of /questions/1152512

Hello, I have a problem: when I watch videos there are horizontal lines that appear on the black sidebars of the video and they flicker a lot. They only appear on full screen mode and when the video is not paused. They have the same colour as the pixel that is ajecant to the sidebar at that moment. I have tried multiple websites, they all have this problem.

Thank you for your help.

I'm not certain, however once I allowed the update to install (yesterday), Version 42.0, some of my incoming e-mails are showing the ORANGE warning triangle. I did not have this problem until yesterday after doing the auto update. What steps can I take to ensure that my version is not the problem? I use Yahoo, and have had it for about 10 years or more without ever having this problem occur. The only method I can use to get rid of the orange triangle is to reload using the "In" box. Otherwise the orange warning stays there for everything, even those which I know are safe (e.g. from Mozilla). The orange warning triangle continues to stay with many of the incoming e-mails, primarily those with images.

ANY AND ALL ADVICE WILL BE MOST APPRECIATED.

This sounds Dostoevskian, but read on. This is informational for those who are wary and abused Firefox users.

It's Free - Firefox. That means you are on your own to get it going and keep it going. Mozilla WILL NOT HELP YOU or provide any competent tech support. You'll be referred to the forums where, many times, you will be run in circles and nonplussed.

This version I have, will not upgrade. 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

All I wanted to do was keep Blur current. No dice. Went like this: 1. Cannot install addon - upgrade to current version 2. Go to upgrade download page. 3. Already at current version. 4. Try to download most recent version. 5. Already at current version.

Fortunately, the excellent tech support techs at Abine/Blur took pity and assisted me. So much so, I felt guilty for not contributing and contributed - to Abine, not Mozilla. So I have an older version of Firefox running just fine. With addons.

Upgrade nags are too intrusive and are accompanied by lies as to why you must upgrade. What they are really hoping for, is to scare you into upgrading to a PAID version of Firefox. You needn't upgrade at all, as a matter of fact, if you are willing to do a little digging and nagging yourself.

Forget tech support. There is none. Nada. Doesn't exist. You'll be on your own in the forums looking for answers. Mozilla claims to have tech support ? It's a lie - and a free-for-all.

Addons have no support. The developers all hide because there are issues with all the addons and the developers are sick and tired of hearing from us Little People. Period. End of Story. DO NOT send addon developers money ! It begets you NOTHING.

The forums, for Mozilla, are 'Free'. Staffed by volunteers who save Mozilla millions of dollars a year in staffing costs. How anyone can get suckered in such a situation is beyond me. What you get in those forums may or may not be true, may or may not work. Take your chances. It seems to be an ego-trip for the "support ENGINEERS", so take your chances. Most times you lose...

Mozilla's relationship(s) with Privacy Busters and Data Miners is murky at best. It will only get more incestuous than it already is. Most other sites have totally prostituted your personal information for pennies. That's all your private life is worth to the data miners - pennies. They buy and sell profiles like yours by the millions. For a few cents each. Many such places will include your credit card number, expiration date and security code - for a few more pennies...

DO NOT give your primary Email address to Mozilla, or any other Free software provider. Make up an Email address for 'throwaway' uses. I have Email accounts associated with Email addresses I provide to places like Mozilla. SPAM Tsunami. Flood. Totally overwhelmed. Today, 963 Spams in 24 hours - to my Spam Trap Email account. That address was only ever given to sites that merely wanted to have it for "informational purposes" and "notifications". Problem is, I give one Email address per site that just HAS to have one or you can't surf. No Emails from that site ! BUT a flood of Spam from 3rd parties ! AND I know EXACTLY where they got my Email address. Handy, huh ?

Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Again, Terms of service disclosures protect you from UTTERLY NOTHING !!! Used to be a merchant would protect your privacy because you could go elsewhere. Nowadays they're just selling everything you disclose. How do you think a concise history of your auto's maintenance ever made it to Carfax, even though you used 16 different shops ? At shops like that, I simply write in large letters across the service contract, "No disclosure of personal info. Rights waived by service provider." That means I haul their asses into court for a civil action -- and win -- if they sell my info. If the shop accepts the work after you wrote that across the service contract, it is a legally binding contract. NOT ONE shop ever refused to fix my car ! How do I know who it was who snitched out my personal info ? My personal information had unique identifiers for whom I disclosed it to. The unique identifiers are easy to make up... Jr., Sr, III, etc...

No response solicited...

Thanks for your reply Cor-el.

I did not create my own website, but I do have a small amount of knowledge that allows me to make minor alterations. When I purchased the SSL certificate from HostPapa they installed it for me. I assumed that they altered the website to accommodate the https and padlock.

How do you add the https protocol ?

Although my website does not handle financial transactions, it can be accessed from another website and Google are pushing, for security sake, that all affiliated websites should be SSL certificated. Hence the reason for going down this route.

Hi,

I have some documentation written out in a html document. There's a bunch of images I cannot see anymore in Firefox but I can see in Chrome for example.

The images are src="data:image/png;base64,*" and it used to work.

What I see is that I open the html document and the images appear for a brief moment only to all almost instantly disappear like they are being blocked.

EDIT: It's Ublock... remove this question.
