I had to clear History and Cookies on my desktop to get an online purchase done. I was able to add my passwords for every site bar one (afl.com.au). It just won't accept my password despite changing it. Works fine in Brave and Chrome. Also fine on my laptop (didn't clear anything there). Any help sincerely appreciated.

I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Cheers, "Sunbury Bob"

I just got a MISERABLE updated Firefox that increased the spacing in my bookmarks menu so it is essentially UNUSABLE with double or triple spacing requiring scrolling till one's arm falls off! Why is it us poor peons out here who just want to use our computers and the internet, and the Firefox they've used FOR YEARS, have to be subject to arbitrary UNNECESSARY changes made by some "developer", possible trying to justify his/her existence and/or is stir crazy in lockdown? win10 bookmarks on the right. FIX IT! And stop screwing up WHAT WAS WORKABLE! I'm not a "nerd" able to just manipulate stuff...I want MY FIREFOX BACK!

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

FBI's suggestion was to start with an IC3 Complaint. I forgot to tell you. They tried to erased the almost 100GB of evidence I have including the 18GB of devastating evidence against them. Well they infected 3 hardware devices I own hoping that I would insert the flash drives with the evidence in the computer and then they can wipe them clean. I lost 75GB but recovered 52GB from a back up scheme I had. Most important: Now I have them in the act of setting up their trap in my computer, plus I have 3 hardware devices infected with their code. One is a USB type A to USB type C adapter by Belkin. they know the whole thing. I spoke to their security all the way to their corporate offices. As you know they're also a defense contractor. The 2nd device is a 3.3 USB reader by SanDisk (Western Digital). I started telling them until they blocked me. So they only know their device was modify to do evil. But I didn't have time to tell them that 2 additional devices suffered the same thing. So, SanDisk thinks they are the only company. The 3rd device is from Kingston it's 3.0 USB card reader but but the time I finished with SanDisk I couldn't communicate with Kingston. Unless the security force from Belkin told them, they are unaware that their device was used for nefarious purposes by MS and GGL (But attempt to abbreviate.) Bottom line I have the dramatic footage of 18GB and 3 hardware devices. of their code. I hope these info gets to you. I have to take a tiny break. I'm sending you these so it won't disappear, And additional items in 45 minutes at the latest. As always, Thank you
