I had Firefox installed in English. After an update/renew (after a long period of not ever launching Firefox), it was displaying in French. I changed the preferred language to English in the Settings, and now I'm getting everything in a mishmash of English and French! (See the attach screenshot.) Even in the same panel, there is a mix of languages (e.g., under History, there's the "Search history" box, and below this, "Aujourd'hui" and "Il y a plus de 6 mois"). I cannot remove French from the language list, and English is already the preferred language.

Relevant information: This is a work desktop where my system settings are in English, but it is connected in a region that frequently uses French (Quebec) so some defaults for my organization might be in French.

II'm using Win 10 Pro and am having an issue with adding new FF profiles.

I have a shortcut icon in the (bottom) Win 10 taskbar. I've created new FF profiles with unique names and paths, etc. But when I open FF as one of those profiles the open window(s) "attach" to an icon / shortcut in the taskbar, even tho' that icon / shortcut has a completely different target (i.e., path for starting FF).

I don't want windows from Profile New 1 or Profile New 2 to look as if they are for Profile Icon_in_the_Taskbar.

I hope this makes sense. I've created profiles in the past and didn't run into this problem so perhaps it's me. But I also don't believe I'm doing anything different than before.

It seems every time I update Firefox they add something else I don't like. Recently, I did the update, and now my tabs are too tall and I can't access my menu, and/or they interfere with the Min and Max l buttons on the top right.

How do I adjust the height of the tabs so they don't go all the way to the top of the browser screen?

Once Firefox was updated to the latest version nothing worked anymore.

No changes to the Settings were saved. Keeps loading the Mozilla page even after I changed to google.ca. Rebooted, restart the browser, etc. Nothing works. Changing the security settings restart the browser then it won't connect to the web.

Everything worked perfectly with the previous version. As soon as it upgraded nothing worked properly anymore.

Tried to go back to 118 but it keeps updating.

Using a very old version right now to be able to connect (56.0.2) and told it NOT to update.

The screenshot below shows exactly what happened to me yesterday when I was prompted by your Firefox pop-up window to update as I have done many times before without incident. Two minutes after clicking on the update request a pop-up window came on my screen with what appeared to be from Microsoft Tech dept. It had a warning message that my computer may have been hacked and a phone number that I must call. I had no choice then to call the number as my computer was frozen/locked. In addition, now my Norton software is suggesting I no longer have "internet Security" which would always say '"Firefox secured'"??? please help me understand why my internet is no longer secured by Firefox? Regards, Worried and scared!

I have noticed quite a few websites that will not load on Mozilla but will load on other Browsers. Even turning off enhanced tracking protection doesn't always help. Some of these sites use to load without any issues. The last one finally loaded after I turned of cookie protection completely. This was that website: https://reservations.gplakes.com/FacilityDetails.aspx?facID=4&sd=10/27/2023&ed=10/28/2023

What can I do to prevent this from happening in the future?

FireFox community

Recently I started receiving Firefox alerts when I attempt to use my ActivClient CAC login See Figure _01. Entering my CAC pin into the ActivCLient dialog and everything works fine (see FIgure_02). But I can't figure out wht the alert notice is telling me or why it has started all of a sudden.
