I have 2 OS's on my computer (on different drives) - in W7 my Firefox Master Password works normally but when I try to open Firefox when using W10 the same password DOESN'T work. I'd rather not lose all the stored info by doing a reset of it on the W10 OS. Is there another way to resolve it?

As soon as I start the Firefox Browser, it is connecting to multiple IP addresses. Any idea why it is doing so? Is there a way to stop it? Is it a privacy and security issue?

I have already changed most of the setting as mentioned in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Some of the IP connections have stopped after making those changes. But there are still few connections. They are: - 35.244.181.201 (This is Google LLC) - 13.227.142.108 (This is Amazon) - 117.18.237.29 (This appears to be Verizon Media) - 54.70.109.38 (This is Amazon) - 52.38.31.225 (This is Amazon)

It will be great if someone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.

I used to play RealBridge with Firefox 86 and previous versions by using a simple USB WebCam; when I udpdated Firefox to 88.0, RealBridge did not open properly the same USB2 Webcam. I had to recover back my Window 7 professional in order to obtain back the Firefox 86.01, then my USB WebCam turned back to work. Now I locked the Firefox autoupdate. I did not change any other set-up, what can I do ?

I have been a user of Netscape/Communicator/Firefox since the first day Netscape came on the market. I talked my father into buying a lot of Netscape stock the day it first appeared on the market.

It is time for our association to end. I am retired now and on a fixed pension. My ISP is raising their rates again to pay for the 1Gbps (or is it 10Gbps) service I do not use or need or have available. It is an across the board rate increase regardless what you use. It is time for me to downscale and the only other ISP to serve my area only offers 768Kbps.

I need to stop loading all the junk that appears every time I change what page I am looking at or that I follow a link. I have tried using about:config and setting permission.default.image to "2" and cannot stop the images. I have tried adding the AddOn ImageBlock and I still get the images. I have tried adding Ghostery and no more help.

As I am unable to block the images, it is with great regret, we have come to the parting of ways. I do not like Chrome but I can block the images there.

Good bye my old friend. I will miss you.

I created many themes using Firefox Color. Today when I went to the website (color.firefox.com), I can't see any of my themes. I tried logging in to my Firefox account, but no luck. It stayed the same. So, where can I find my saved themes? Or, is there any way to edit an .xpi in Firefox Color? Because I have the .xpi saved on my computer. Please help.

I cannot believe they set it like the present way that overrides your existing page as the default. Its like they've never used the browser. Such a bonehead move. Its especially irritating when you've been writing up something, pouring your heart out, then have it whisked away by forgetting that the pinhead designer is going to deem your present page of negligible value and wipe it out as it carries you to the History link. And to think it hasn't been changed in years.

Maybe something in About:Config can override this idiocy? I searched for "history" but didn't see anything that seemed related to this.

Looked it up on Add-Ons but couldn't find anything.

By the way Mozilla, its really time to employ negative filtration in the Add-Ons search. So you can put in a very general term (because you don't want to eliminate possibilities by being specific) then filter out the inapplicable results. Its called a dash and its been used for decades by Ebay and Google. Amazon used to use it but it gave us too much power so that was snatched away a while back. Say you're looking for something that will control the History function. When you search for History almost all the results involve wiping/deleting it. So by using History -wipe -wiping -delete -deleting the results get more relevant to my needs. As they say, cast a wide net if you want to catch big fish. The size of the netting filters out the smaller fish caught.
