Hello. My tabs, history and other data did not migrate upon upgrade from Firefox Preview for Android to Firefox Nightly. I have and Android phone with software version 6.0. I do not typically log in to my account. Both Firefox versions are loaded on my phone so data has not been lost. I am unsure if this relates but I am close to memory capacity on my LG Fortune (first version). Thanks for your assistance and volunteer work.

All webpages continue scrolling after I've taken my fingers off the touchpad

I've just switched to Firefox as Chrome keeps lagging. I'm running Fedora 31 and the latest version of Firefox 76.0.1.

When I use the 2 fingered scrolling and take my fingers off the touchpad, the page keeps scrolling until it slowly slows down and eventually stops or hits the end of the page. It doesn't then stop when I place my fingers back on the touchpad, so it just carries on regardless to another part of the page. It's ludicrous as it just goes past whatever I'm trying to look at! If I keep my fingers on the touchpad it stays put but as soon as I take them off, it's off on it's jollies again.

Is there anyway to disable this? I've unchecked smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. I've never had Firefox behave like this before on any Linux distro.

Hello, I want to download some content from Spotify (free) in Firefox. What maybe couldhelp is the fact that I could eliminate any commercial breaks, but I actually dont know how. Sometimes Spotify wants to start some adds but after a few seconds the audiobook or whatever keeps on running. Does Spotify in some way "respect" my adblocke (ublocker origin, noScript,Private badgerr?) The idea now is,van I also download Content from spotify with anyozillaa addon. Thx for help so far Harry b. fron Germany

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to control Firefox 76 on Linux from D-bus ? I listed all available services with "qdbus" utility, but there is nothing like firefox/mozilla. Also, I browsed source code, and I saw D-bus support seems to be there. Thank you

Running a speed test in Firefox will show lower download speeds, in some cases just a fraction of the speed of my broadband connection, both on Windows and Linux installations of Firefox Browser. Safe Mode makes no difference. Other browsers show normal speeds.

unable to fully clear cache, stop automatic updates, privacy settings do not work, popups are not being blocked

After my Firefox took a 'ninja update' I was not able to keep the cache clear and even though it was set to clear my cache on exit when i would open a fresh instance of firefox it would have items in the cache. nothing I would do would correct this even completely removing Firefox, the profiles, and reinstalling it. Reinstalling it is turning out to be my biggest mistake. Instead of the version 63 installing, which is what my installer was for the installer is only installing the most recent buggy version My version 63 had updates turned off, it should not have taken an update but it did even though the updates were turned off FOR security. I even had the registry set to block from HKLM When I am 'browsing' the internet I am logged into my machine with a user account that can't even make any changes. The current version (76.0.1) is having the same problems that plagued me before after this 'ninja update', the cache will not fully clear. When I open firefox it is showing it has items cached. There should be NOTHING in the cache when it opens, I do not have a home page set, there are no links set to open at startup and no connections should be made. The popup blocker is not only not blocking any popups it is opening them in new windows The machine does not have a virus or malware. Why is firefox so insecure now? The whole idea of using firefox was to be using a secure browser and just a browser it is not supposed to be integrated into the operating system it is not supposed to be interacting with the operating system it is supposed to be an internet browser. Without the ability to prevent this automatic communication and block unwanted traffic from it we may as well be using Internet Explorer, Edge or Chrome. How do we install one of the older more secure versions of Firefox without it automatically updating at the time of the install? How do we actually block the automatic communication? How do we block popups as the popup blocker does not work at all? (it worked beautifully in version 63) How do we get it to clear the cache at exit and open with the cache at 0?

Extensions are installed and running but dont show up next to the 3-bar menu. Add-ons Manager says "The following extensions do not have shortcuts:

   Facebook Container
   LastPass: Free Password Manager
   TrafficLight"

They used to show up a couple of days ago but I cant find the area in Options to correct the problem. How do I make them re-appear?

Thank you in advance, Jerry
