Long time Firefox/Mozilla user. Installed/upgraded/migrated on Win, Android, Linux (various distros) over the years.

This might also be relevant to the Sync topic.

Built a new Win 10 system 11/21. Installed Firefox, logged in and Enabled Sync. Installed licensed Adobe photo editing software. No problems. Used for 2 weeks.

Spent 5 months in hospital.

Back home, used new PC for ~45 days; Win 10 went wiggy on me after an update - could not get to Settings menu ya da ya da. It went downhill from there. No identifiable hardware issues (tested memory and (.m2) boot drive, etc

Tried many fixes to Windows while trying to keep user data. Ended up reinstalling Win 10 (multiple times...). System working, but no bookmarks/passwords. Installed Firefox. Of course, it didn't work - understandibly.

Went to old PC, Firefox does not seem to give me the option to *see* my login password); looked up Firefox password (I hated to do it, but with ~500 userid/passwords, I started to let FF manage these a few years back). Found it. Went to new box and logged in. Password error. Digging deeper, it *appears* that the present password was set circa 2015 and the Firefox saved password was set circa 2021.

I've now been fussing with this a week. Searching, searching; trying pretty much everything I can think of. Nothing works.

Any path forward besides changing passwords on all of the involved (~20+) devices?

Now I need to try to recall where I put the recovery key ... (yes, I have since embarked on an extensive backup/restore point campaign which includes backing up backup system software).

If you don't write an answer here publicly, on how to disable updates and stop all pop-ups and automatic downloads of said updates, i will come to your offices within 2 weeks and do something really bad.

Right now I'm giving you a choice. It's all in your hands what happens next. Will you write me an answer for all to see...or will you delete this. Live with the consequences.

Hi, The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac Magic Keyboard. Tapping the spacebar also causes the entire window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

I received this e-mail today: " Thank you for your first contribution to the Mozilla support forums! You just made somebody's day!

Mozilla support is fully powered by our volunteer community that is helping hundreds of users everyday. This community is formed by passionate Firefox and Thunderbird users who take some of their spare time to help others. We couldn't do it without your passion and enthusiasm. Your contribution, as minor as it might seem, has tremendous value. Solving one issue in the support forums can help up to 1000 users a day! '

I did NOT contribute! How do I report this? I did send it to abuse@Mozilla.com and spoof@Mozilla.com. I don't know it that works. Thanks.

Here is how to completely remove the latest, unasked for forced on us utter crap in this pathetic Firefox-view.

In a new tab click about:config

Accept the risks

In the serch bar type firefox-view

Double click where itsays firefox-view true to change it to false

Close

There you go the lataest crap from Firefox is now completely removed from your browser.

Here utter clowns at Firefox if I want to jnow what tabs I have just closed I will just click on "history"!

Everytime you add a new feature to Firefox I have removed it. Pockets removed. Full page capture removed (I will stick to useing snipping tool) now this removed.

Why can't you just leave things well enough alone. You have the best browser going but you seem hell bent on utterly destroying it. It is no wonder more people use Chrome it is so they do not have to put up with the crap you force on us.

The directions show a picture that shows the Done button having a split section with a drop down menu. I don't have that. It does go to a pop up with options, but when I try to hit print, it asks me to sign in. What am I signing in to? I think I am already signed in to firefox, so why doesn't it know that. But it's suggesting gmail, and others, and saying it's for a free trial. I thought ff was providing this through their browser, why is it talking about a free trial? What is it a free trial of? Why am I going to google?
