The website, Radio Garden, doesn't even allow you to register, much less input passwords or credit cards. If any, the creator of this site only collects data for analysis reasons, that's really about it. Radio Garden is a site that lets you listen to radio stations around the world without the need of ever registering at all (and through mobile, users can pay a small fee to rid of intrusive ads, but not actual, radio station ads in which they have no control of). Can the guys at Firefox know that Radio Garden is NOT an illegitimate site and flag it as secure and safe instead? Thanks.

And yes, there have been sites that are flagged as false positive because Firefox, along with other browsers, like to get incredibly touchy for no apparent reason.

Firefox doesn't work correctly with Kaspersky Safe Money function but Edge and Chrome do!

I am currently running Windows 10 and Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit) and Kaspersky Internet Security 21.3.10.391(b).

I have discovered an anomaly unique to Firefox which causes issues when using the Kaspersky Safe Money function for more than one website.

If you do not add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to both the Firefox normal browser window that you use for all browsing AND also to the Protected Browser window, when you try to open 2 or more websites that should have protected browers, you get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on to only the Firefox normal browser window, you still get a Run error when you try to open the 2nd website!

The reason this is unique to Firefox is that you do NOT need to add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to either Chrome or Edge to make the Safe Money function work correctly for more than 1 website.

If you do add the Kaspersky Protection add-on/extension to Edge or Chrome, you only need to add it once, to the normal browser window, you do NOT need to add it to the protected browser window.

Surely this is a fault in Firefox and should be investigated and corrected or can someone explain why this happens with Firefox but not the other browsers.

I look forward to any information, advice etc that will help.

I posted this question before, and it got escalated, but there wasn't a resolution or fix suggested. I am hoping with more crash reports I can get some help finding a solution! Firefox is now crashing routinely - as in, many times each day. I am at my wits end! It's not profile-related as I sync my browser profiles and have no issues on my other computer. I did a clean install, and the crash frequently slowed for a while, but now I'm back to tearing my hair out. Please help!

Hi.

Why would you remove FTP? It's not obsolete, I use it for work, and a good one third of my browsing is easily ftp sites such as NetBSD.org, ftp.gnu.org and others. FTP is still used heavily.

I really really dislike that it's gone. I'd gladly spend 30-40$ a year for a paid version.

I've been using you guys back to Mozilla, Firebird, Netscape and even earlier ..possibly related was NCSA Mosaic. C'mon guys.. which Millenial decided FTP was obsolete and uncool because it was old? It's how most of the Open Source projects and distributions still move data around. :~( This is the first time since I started using Netscape/Mozilla/etc that you've ever done something I don't like. The last thing I want to do is be forced to use Chrome or some other garbage. Please.. bring it back or some sort of external module we can pay for to get browsing back. Please! I beg you. (Trying hard to be really civil and nice here ..truely baffled that it'd be removed).

Dear Thunderbird Team,

I am using Thunderbird and I am (was) very happy with it!

Since Thunderbird Version 78.9.1 (20210406220621) I am often asked to Update Thunderbird, although Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 Home.

Thunderbird asks for Update but did not do automatically, instead I was diverted to the Thunderbird Web-sight and I had to do manually download the latest Version. After manually installing the latest Thunderbird Version I an still am asked every day to do an Update, although my Thunderbird is up to date with 78.10.1. (64-Bit).

I am running a desktop PC with: Edition Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on am ‎18.‎06.‎2020 Systembuild 19042.985 Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.2020.0

Thunderbird Settings are: Update automatic installation, and use a background process for installation of updates.

What can I do do to fix this problem? Kind regards

When you go to open the event it opens the - Edit repeating event box and shows null is a repeating event... If you Edit only this Occurrence the save and Exit is greyed out, selecting the Edit all Occurrences the save and Exit is also greyed out. Trying to delete the single occurrence or all Occurrences I get the error message.

Switching notification to off, likewise dies nothing.

Mozilla VPN does nothing, other than grossly slow down internet use on my iPhone.....

Every "phone number" associated with the porn texts are unique, hence AT&T, Nomorobo, etc utilities fail to trap the nuisance texts. Texts are always followed with some kind of unique link after the "webpage" as follows:

The only consistent aspect of each porn related text is the embedded. "freegiftstodayonly.com"

The Mozilla browser, VPN, etc need a means to filter out and block this, and anything similar......
