There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

'Support" in gPlayStore said to come here for help. So far, NO JOY.

When you suddenly stripped away access to about:config, you also wiped out my previously working PROXY SETTINGS? WHY??? What gave you the right to screw that up as part of "updating???"

Rather than fascisticsally removing about:config, WHY NOT CREATE A MECHANISM TO BACK-UP, RESTORE, RESTORE-TO-LAST-KNOWN-GOOD and OFFLINE EDIT :config SETTINGS. THAT would be USEFUL IDIOT-PROOFING, rather than taking away about:cofig.

If idiots are wrecking their FFforA by breaking things in about:config, LET THEM UNINSTALL/REINSTALL and START OVER FROM SCRATCH.

Why PUNISH EVERYONE ELSE???

The Devs are smarter than this. So are Power Users. Forcing Nightly and/or Beta is overbearing and arrogant.

My sister have a facebook page with shop that I help her manage, but for some reason lately we can't access the "shop" tab of the page with firefox.

We are getting The page isn’t redirecting properly error. I cleaned cookies and cache, even tried a new private window, nothing. I tried opening in edge and everything worked like no problem.

The page is the following. https://www.facebook.com/hadrastico/shop

We experienced problems both in my workstation and my sister's laptop that also use firefox (latest version, windows 10 up to date).

Any idea? Should I fill a bug or something?

Hi there,

profiles are great. In my situation we are multiple users share one computer with multiple profiles, each for one person.

I wonder how one can make the different profiles visible especially in Windows Task Bar. We usually see multiple instances of "Inbox" there. It makes sense to show they are different!

In previous versions the addon "Profile Switcher" was able to modify the window title.

Maybe a profile Icon/Iconcolour or a prefix letter to prefix the folder/window title of Firefox.

Is there a posibility? How do other deal with this.

Kind regards ak

I went back to a previous version of Thunderbird so that I could use the add-on Calendar Tweaks which has capabilities not in Thunderbird and will not work with the latest version. All is well but I am constantly nagged about downloading the latest update. I have read a number of posts to try and stop the nag and the consensus is to do the following

   Type 'Run' in search and select 'Run' app
   In 'Run' app type regedit and click on Ok
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies
   Create new subkey called 'Mozilla'
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Mozilla
   Then create new subkey called 'Thunderbird'
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Mozilla\Thunderbird
   On the right, create a new 32-Bit DWORD value DisableAppUpdate.
   Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows you must still create a 32-bit DWORD value.
   Set its value to 1. 

The problem is that when I try and create the subkey Mozilla under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies, the subkey doesn't go under 'Policies' but under 'Microsoft'. Even though I have selected HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies, and hit NEW with this selected, the subkey is attached to Microsoft, not Policies.

Hello, This has happened before and I found no workable solution. This is my last attempt at installing Firefox - currently I am using Brave as a general browser and Chrome as my browser to stream with: Netflix, Crave TV, CBC Gem. After installation, I loaded Netflix and let it run through the Crimes of Grindewald promo. Everything was fine for a few minutes and then my system froze: no mouse, no keyboard. This has happened in the past. I am using an Acer PC that is only a few years old and more than meets the requirements. I have 0 problems streaming the previously mentioned sitesn chrome, and can stream from a few places on Brave. I would like to cross over to the grey side, but streaming is very important and there are no substiutes. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Shawn
