I like the idea of the built-in share buttons, but I was dismayed to learn that they share cookies[1] with the main browser pages.

I consider the share buttons that are on pretty much all websites a privacy drain because they send data on the page you're visiting to the social network whether or not you choose to share it. So I ensure I'm not logged in while browsing normally, and only log in when I want to share something.

If the firefox share services used separate cookies (I guess like private browsing must), then it would be a really handy feature.

FFHello button really would be more user friendly if -

The OFF/ON icons used a larger red line ( a little thicker than i added)(see attachment)

I'm hopping user profiles that include a user name and profile picture are in the works for FFHello ?

I also mentioned the inability to select my video and sound source for FFHello chat, as is i can only allow or disallow video and sound.

Without warning or notice, Firefox makes security "improvements" that disable relied on add-ons and extensions. Then the puxxle must be solved in the most inconvenient time and manner.

I previously was a supporter and user of Firefox. Since it has started to act like a Microsoft product, which I left to use Firefox, I seem to have no alternative but to search for a new and dependable Broswer that is not dictatorial in its habits.

I am a simple old dinosaur who has been using FF years. It has been gradually getting more complicated and irrelevant (at least to me) and over the last 6 months or so it became more and more troublesome with hanging, excessive buffering, slower and slower responses, crashing both itself and my computer. I have searched every forum, tried every fix and nothing works. As if a simple old dinosaur like would have a clue, but, if you were to ask me, i'd tell you that FF and Adobe Flash/Shockwave are not good friends and neither party seems to want own up to it. This morning my system was running like it was on one spark plug and FF's performance was reminiscent of the old dial-up days. Finally dumped it and went to Chrome (my loyalty credits were all gone). I'm sitting in my office with my computer, doing my accounts, playing 60's music on You Tube, my bookie's website is open, both my emails are open and everything is running at lightening speed. I had forgotten how good life could be. My question is, have i done the wrong thing?

Hello firefox team, I have two screens on my desktop. When Firefox browser is reaching is full capacity of tabs, I find it very hard to move the browser from screen to screen, could you please make the tabs at the top a little bit lower so you could drag the window itself? , this is why I'm not using firefox some times.

I open your browser and see a video about 'hands' and how important they are. But, no captions for the Deaf? No way for a person who cannot hear to understand this video. Hands are important, they are a means to communication for the Deaf, the basis of a language. Your video is not compliant with ADA law, and as much as I love Mozilla I am bummed out that you aren't able to spend a few moments captioning your video so that 17 million Americans who are Deaf and hard of hearing might understand.

Thank you.

To better organize my bookmarks, I sometimes want to search them.

But when I search, the result is not shown in context, so I can move it.

Suggestion: in bookmarks side bar, after searching (and finding) a bookmark, going back selects item in bookmarks list.

I was online with a good strong signal. Firefox would not connect to the internet regardless of what address I tried so I had no way to contact them to ask for help; thus my about comment that Mozilla Firefox needs a customer service phone number. Finally as a last resort on the advice of my broadband provider, I typed in support.mozilla.org and my problem was solved.

I still think they should provide a toll-free customer service telephone number !

Actually in chrome when i want to save a webpage in PDF / print a file i go for ctrl+p then it automatically previews it with many options such as paper size/standard and more.. which makes it very EASY and time saving which i could not find in firefox. At

first i used chrome but later shifted to Firefox due to Privacy.... I thought installing PDF software made it disapper but later found that Firefox lacks the option. 

Suggestion : Please provide more options and make it ease of access in the print section of Firefox, also the print preview shows the options such as landscape/portrait... in top side it will be much easier if it is to the left/right side.

Hi, I love Firefox. Until the day a new version is released. I download the new version and faithfully decide to restart both Windows and Firefox. Only to slap myself a second later for not BACKING UP MY TABS, crossing fingers and crying while restarting Firefox TELLING MYSELF that "No, Jo, THIS TIME they have had fixed it and all the tabs will STILL BE THERE, Firefox employs some intelligent coders, YOUR TABS AND HISTORY ARE SAFE, Jo!

but no :'(

This happens... EVERY time. Can you add a few lines of code to prompt me to save the current session BEFORE restarting the browser post-update??? Please? I beg you?

Thanks, Jo

In light of Mozilla's censorious decision to create the Mozilla Information Trust Initiative, a thinly veiled attempt to control information and user experience online, I will no longer be using your browser.

The fact that you have made it near impossible to communicate directly to your company (hence this roundabout support ticket in lieu of a simple email) adds to frustration with your company, as well as the increasing slowness and dysfunction of the browser.

You have betrayed my trust, your company has become arrogant and untrustworthy, and so I will be switching to an upstart competitor.

Good luck.

But please introduce pinch to zoom using trackpad like Chrome, Edge and Safari.

A lot of people could use this functionality to zoom on a specific part of page on small laptops (e.g. Main news column).

I have always allowed an automatic update of your browser. The most recent update changed the arrangement of the refresh button, and a few other operations of the program. I have used Firefox for years now. Moving the Refresh button has totally messed up my use of your browser due to muscle memory. Now, it is just like Internet Explorer by Microsoft. If I wanted my browser to be like Microsoft Internet Explorer, I would just use Internet Explorer, not your redesigned browser which looks and operates like Internet Explorer. For the first time, I had to go and revert back to an earlier version of Firefox. Once you put it back the way it was, I will allow the update. Otherwise, I might as well change to Internet Explorer. Why in the world would you do that? It makes no sense at all. Don't emulate the "other guys". It's bad for business. It just makes your faithful patrons mad at you, and IE users will never like you anyway. You just alienated a vast number of users. Please advise when you change the desigb back to the way it was.

Hi,

I'm really frustrated that Firefox became the least customizable browser by removing access to existing APIs to extensions. The idea is to make browsing faster, more reliable and secure but this is: 1. not really the case [*] 2. at the price to not have any options (which was my primary feature of Firefox)

After the upgrade a lot of useful addons stopped working. A lot of bugzilla feature requests to add APIs to Firefox are present but they are moving very slow as well apparently not all add-on authors have the nerves to go through the process. In the past requests for web extension APIs have been rejected with the rational that internal APIs can still be used. Now this is not anymore the case but the long-requested APIs have not been implemented.

Basically I feel screwed by a lot of functionality being removed without robust path forward and no backward compatibility period.

I might be just expressing my frustration that Firefox is becoming just another browser for the average user with decisions taken to screw advanced users.

My request is to seriously reconsider Firefox development strategy by keeping the major advantages of Firefox over competitors. This forum is the only place I see fit to send out such a broad request. And I do this only because I still care about Firefox and am a loyal Firefox user since early days. And I would like to see improvements in it, not mimicking inferior designs.

[*] I say not really the case, because I was using RightToClick in the past and it worked brilliantly. Had to switch to Enable Right click and select extension. And it took me a week to figure out that it breaks usual browsing experience in a very annoying way. So how did it help that extension is using new APIs? It didn't. Thus I conclude restricting APIs can't prevent bad user experience.
