When I close Firefox and go back in to it, I am presented with a new Home Tab now. This is very bad experience for me. What a productivity killer. I want to go back to my last active tab.

Need a “Startup Tab” option for “Where I left off” or “Specific URL” or “New Home Tab”.

This is horrible. Trying to remember not to close Firefox now, but I am careful… quite addicted… to always closing Apps since Apple lies about battery consumption, and I don’t want “background” apps spying on me in anyway.

  1. I have filters configured to move incoming messages to new folders. If I receive a new message and a filter is triggered, then the notice about the new message is not shown. How do I fix this?
  2. I would prefer to display an icon of an envelope, not a Thunderbird symbol with a barely noticeable red dot. How do I fix this?
  3. If I read a message in the main Inbox, then mark it as unread, the Thunerbird symbol will again display in the system tray. This was not the case with version 78. How do I fix this?

In the latest release the gap between Bookmarks on the Bookmark toolbar folders is huge. Why was this changed and how to change it back? Note this isn't happening from the menu, only from the Bookmarks toolbar folders. It is extremely ugly and huge waste of space which forces me to scroll to see all my bookmarks under some folders.

Hi there, I'd like to make a feature request. One of the things that I love about Google Chrome is the ability to run single window apps. This is the only feature keeping me from moving to Firefox at this point. I'd like to request that this be added as a feature in Firefox. The command could be something like:

firefox --app=https://mail.provider.com

This would spawn a single app window that does not have tabs to navigate to other apps.

Thanks!

Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Two days ago (9/10/2021) I updated to version 92.0 on my laptop. When I attempt to scroll/drag through the bookmarks menu, the cursor, at normal speed, stays far ahead of the active bookmark. This "lag" is also noticeable when dragging the cursor through an active page/window. This was not the case before the update.

I've been using Mozilla VPN for almost a year, mostly with little fanfare. Works just as advertised.

The past week my network has been slow. I've been running a whole host of diagnostics to my ISP but have not found a smoking gun. Today, I started doing a number of tests of the VPN itself.

I realize that a VPN will always reduce network bandwidth to some degree. THat has been the case since I have been using it. Today however (and I suspect for the last week) Mozilla VPN has just been a complete dog. Today from the same computer, using the same router, when the VPN is not installed and I am using the simple desktop version of speedtest available here https://www.speedtest.net/apps/windows , I get latency (ping) of 10ms, download speeds of 72 - 75 Mbps, and Upload speeds of 10 - 11 Mbps.

When I do connect the VPN I am getting latency (ping) of 25 - 30 ms, Download speeds of 30 - 35 Mbps, and Upload speeds of 5 - 6 Mbps.

Please note that I am choosing speedtest hosts to run against that are near the VPN endpoints geophraphically.

I have done these tests periodically in the past, and have typically seen the VPN affect my native throughput by 5 - 10%. Not by 50%.

I suspect this has been going on for about a week. I don't know where to check to see if Mozilla is posting and service problems, but this crosses the boundary from an acceptable degradation to a completely unacceptable degradation.

Any insights very welcome.

Hello,

I signed up for Mozilla VPN. I paid the $59.99 fee. My credit card was charged (shows up as pending transaction in my bank record) But I am not able to log in to the VPN account - it says `Oops account not found. ` There is no email address to reach out for support. This is 2021 - how do you not have payment and signup flows figured out. What is happening with my account? I have been charged for a service and I am not able to access it.

Who do I reach out to resolve this matter?

A few months ago Firefox decided to double space all the items in menus. Reading through the forums many people didn't like this because of the amount of space that the menus now take up. Fortunately there was a work around, by setting 'browser.proton.contextmenus.enabled to false they returned to normal

This morning Firefox my got upgraded and the double spacing problem is back again. However there appears to be a bug with the setting and the menus won't return to normal. I'm now stuck with stupidly large menus that won't fit on the screen and lots of painful scrolling.

Does anybody have an alternative workaround until this is fixed?

Firefox will not update, but continuaaly load unstoppable popups suggesting I download and install a new copy. This is "Firefox for Acer". One other question about this was answered "I assume that you can ask this at the Acer support forum as they should know this best." wgich means, I suppose, that the responder doesn't knowm but likes answering questions.

Does anyone know? Is this why Firefox fails to update? Will re-installing eliminate the problem? Is there any way to stop the popups?

Before I close the Firefox browser i go to Settings>Clear Data> Cookies & Site Data>Cached Web Content. I clear all and the Cached Web Content is lowered to 45kb. History is deleted. There is nothing in Manage Data or Manage Exceptions. The computer is turned off. A day later the computer is turned on and Cached Web Content is 2Mb.

Windows Defender anti-virus malware scan and full scan have been run. The computer is up to date, Win 10 Home, version 21H1, OS build 19043.1237.

Any idea what is causing Cached Web Content to grow from 45kb to 2 Mb when the computer is turned off?
