I am tired of your relentless, a;most daily update notices which can't be turned off. This is an obvious Control Issue with you.

HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY RIGHTS AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

If your service is so flawed that you have to consistently update, them your users need to find another browser/ This is my plan.

Effective now, I will not use your site because of your controlling attitude, lack of support and forced actions. I suggest that other users consider doing this until Moz://a stops this controlling bull shit!

In this environment, we do NOT need someone like you telling us what to do.

You're wrong, you're stupid and you're going to loose in the long run as your users are not going to put u p with this relentless BS!

I use the password manager in Firefox. Makes it easier to log in to different sites. I have found a situation that has been overlooked. Multiple sites use a persons e-mail address for identity. Different sites then would all use the one e-mail address for identity. Each site however would have a different password. So we have one "name" but multiple passwords connected to that name. Firefox doesnt realize that the one name has multiple passwords so everytime you login to a site that uses your email address as your identity, it asks if you may want to update your password. You have to refuse everytime because the different sites have a different password. If you update the password, each site will now have the password of the last updated password. Its a issue that needs to be fixed so Firefox recognizes how a Email address=Name can have multiple passwords because different sites are using the same name. It looks like Firefox isnt making the connection that different sites are being visited by the same person so some information will be consistent among different sites visited. Thus not realizing that its correct that the "same" name has a password that is different for this new site.

Is there a workaround? thx.

however, with the latest version 92.0.1, the "--screenshot" option no longer works. what has changed? what am I doing wrong?

MacBook Pro M1, Firefox 92.0.1. Go to https://www.gibson.com/Generation. System completely freezes, no cursor movement, no error message; must manually restart. Using Safari, the site opens correctly; it includes an "accept cookies" dialog, which did not appear when I tried with Firefox. Bad website design? Or a bug in Firefox?

This is my second posting of this problem. When I open a document through a web site, I do not see any text in it. If I open web mail in Spectrum I get strange symbols on the top menu bar. None of these issues are evident in Chrome. I have made sure to update to the latest version of Firefox available, 92.0.1. This has no effect.

How do I stop autofill for email address? I use several email addresses. Firefox autofills my email address when I complete forms, but it uses an email address I never use when completing official forms and documents and I have to change it manually. I prefer to complete it manually, so how do I stop Firefox from autofilling my email address period!? (I have gone through all of "Settings", but I can't find any option that will fix this situation.)

That last update has rendered Firefox unusable for me and other visually impaired people by making the display screen incompatible with Windows accessibility options. The drop down menus are fine, it's the display screen that is now a white background only, instead of the accessible black background with light letters.

I realize this is likely clear as mud, but that white background is illegible to people with poor vision.

I want my browser back. If thee is a way to go back to an earlier build that worked, I'd like to know it. If there is a compensatory add on, I'd like to find it. If your developers have decided visually impaired adults are SOL I suppose that's useful, too.

TIA for any help.

hello, I have been using firefox for years but over the past couple of weeks i keep getting an error message and it started with only a few sites at first but now its almost every site i try to reach. i can no longer work through firefox and have to bounce between browsers. I can't reach simple sites such as google sheets, drive, etc.

i've tried just about everything to try an fix it. I've downloaded adblockers, checked for viruses, tried multiple different wifis thinking maybe mine was the problem, downloaded antivirus software, cleaned out my computer of junk

its always the same error message or the site shows up white and in the wrong format. i couldn't even access this page on firefox, i'm on a different browser writing this.

this is the error message: Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to drive.google.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

blocked access to website. I can't access a website for software I use to sign into my account there to send a request. I unblocked it in the settings - cookies - but it still keeps me from opening it. this is the message on the screen "Cookies required to use Firefox To continue signing in using Firefox, allow cookies to be stored on this device. You might see this screen more than once."

So I go to Bing but I would prefer to use firefox. Why is it so hard to release a website??? What is the problem? Edith

Firefox always deletes cookies for some websites when it's restarted. While working in non-private mode I checked, that the setting for removing the cookies on closing is set to off. Then I tried adding some websites to the exception list for this setting, no luck. I made sure that cookies on those websites are persistent, not session only, and they are working in other browsers. I tried disabling the plugins, but it didn't help either. It's somewhat annoying, because now I have to adjust cookie preferences every time I visit my favourite websites. I use "standard" protection settings.
