Why, why, why do the devs keep pushing asthetic design changes that user obviouslly relly don't want? You got $450 million from Google, so maybe you're doing it on purpose to drive FF users away.

Remember when FF had over 25% market share? And now you're at less than 3.5%. That's because you keep messing with the FF interface. Take for example you're unwanted chunky new double spaced menus and bookmarks. Everybody hates them. You know that. Why not listen to the last of the FF users?

Why not give use end-users a voice in how Firefox looks? Let us OPT OUT of cosmetic design changes. I've never been asked my opinion in a survey and you killed-off the FF feed back feature. Why? Because too many people don't like what your doing? Since Google essentially owns you now, are trying to kill off FF for them? Because you're doing a great job of it!

Hello !

In the previous versions of firefox, I could split the navigator screen in two parts: the entire list of my bookmarks on left side, opn mu current navigation on the right. But with current versions, I can only have that list in a separate window, forcing me to clik on preferences, and select the "manage bookmarks" option in order to get my bookmarks library. I don't find this alternative very handy and I conseder it mostly as a painpoint.

Hello,

This has been going on for few months and it doesn't seem to be going away (in fact, I see more complaints about similar issue around the net), so here it goes.

Up until Firefox 87 with Widevine 4.10.1582.2 I had no problems with Netflix. Then Firefox 88 with Widevine 4.10.2209.1 was released and every time I watch an episode of a show the screen freezes for several seconds while sound goes on. If you rewind and reach that point again, it doesn't happen again. However it's inredibly annoying when it happens at the climax of every episode.

I stopped updating Firefox beyond 87, but then Widevine 4.10.1582.2 stopped being supported and had to update or not being able to watch Netflix at all. While I can still watch movies, I had to start using Edge to watch tv shows (and I really don't want to do that).

I haven't noticed it happening on a movie, possibly because the last few minutes are credits which I don't watch. But there's a possibility it only happens on episodes. This is only my suspicion, but it happens right after the episode finishes buffering, so maybe it has something do with that or maybe some process with next episode is beginning while the current one is still being watched.

I'm not exactly sure it's something you can fix on your end since it seems to be involving Widevine, but would be great if something could be done.

I browsed a clothing website for less than 5 minutes by typing in the address and not using any links. Shortly after I receive an email asking if I was still interested in what I was looking at. Does Firefox share my email address with websites I'm visiting? I believe the email is coming from SafeOpt, not the website I visited. I do have "do not track" options selected in Firefox.

Fairly regularly I go to the Quora.com site to answer questions others have asked. Perhaps in one in four times I launch Firefox browser and go to this site it will not respond beyond the first page and eventually report that something on the page is slowing the browser. If this does not happen, everything works normally and very quickly.

The only way I can continue is to close the browser completely and relaunch. Even if I wait a minute or so, when I relaunch it tells me Firefox is already running and asks if I wish to close it. If I let it close the browser, the new launch normally works perfectly.

When the problem occurs, opening other tabs and closing the original one does not seem to make a difference. It still does not work properly.

I am not sure when this started, and I have only experienced this problem on this one site. When I have tried using the Chrome browser I have not seen this happening on this site. I don't like the Chrome browser but have it installed to allow streaming my screen to a Chromecast dongle.

The Firefox browser in the Windows 64-bit version 92.0.

This start happening a few weeks ago (it is now mid September 2021). I am not sure whether something has changed in Firefox or in the Quora site. I have seen this problem on both my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs.

Hello,

I am having issues with error messages when browsing with Firefox.

This error PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR and this error SSL_ERROR_RX_UNEXPECTED_APPLICATION_DATA I don't get these errors when using Chrome or Microsoft Edge.

When I reload the current page, the page loads properly.

I've tried these tips so far: refreshing Firefox, setting to "no proxy" on network settings, turning off Avast, uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, checking manual proxy on my PC, restart my computer, refreshing Firefox, checking the clock on my PC.

Is there anything else I can do to fix this?

Thank you for assistance.

Since sometime in August 2021, I suspect after an update, occasionally when I launch Firefox it reports that it was unable to restore a previous session. I do not have the option to open previous sessions selected. On other occasions it starts properly with a blank page as it is configured to do.

Am I missing a setting?

It is not a major problem, I can simply enter a URL or search string in the address bar and it works properly for the rest of the session.

It is happening both on my Windows 8.1 Pro and Windows 10 Pro PCs running the 64-bit version of Firefox.

Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thank you.

Clicking on links has worked for years with Windows 7 and MS Works 7. I don’t see any settings in Works 7 or 9 that control this.

Is there a FF setting that enables this?

Using latest updated Windows 10 and latest updated Firefox 92.0, when I open up Google Maps and click on "Show your Location" button it shunts me off to the middle of Chicago, rather than downtown Menlo Park, CA.

I double checked whether my WIndows Settings were set to allow location, and it was still set to "On." I also tried using Chrome and there, everything worked as expected. I also tried Microsoft Edge, and there it was broken as well.

So, the problem could be with Windows or Firefox apparently...Not sure how to fix or at least work around the problem.
