I would like to know why Mozilla which proclaims to be a company promoting freedom has donated/awarded money to an organisation hell bent on stopping speech they do not agree with.

Think I might find an alternative browser now.

For some reason, Firefox seems to be connecting to websites, in the background, that I have visited in the past but have not requested. Is there a known reason for this and how do I disable it? The web page doesn't come up but data is being transferred in the background.

Keeping in mind this is different to Amazon, Akamai and other hosting services. These are specific websites that it is doing HTTP requests to in the background for no logical reason.

Thanks in advance.

Doing a right-click on a topic and opening it in a new bar is NOT a problem; a new tab with the new topic opens swiftly.

The problem is when I intend to copy/paste a URL to a new tab: I can not open a new tab to do this - I need to content myself using the existing tab, to paste the URL, OR open a new window to paste the URL.

This has not been the case in my decade(?) of use of Firefox. This is the first time this thing happened.

HELP please. Thank you very much. junReyes Philippines

So i right click and get a picture of whole window (tabs above, whole website). In the top right corner of this picture (picture is inside this menu after right click or in sugestions) I've got my standard menu. When I try to point at sth (in this menu) it starts blinking (picture, menu, picture...). It drives me crazy. I even tried system reinstall and it happens again.

I work on notebook. It's not a beast but not some old junk too.

Any ideas?

P.S english isn't my first language so I tried to make everything as clear as possible. If sth is unclear just let me know.

P.S2 I could use some build in dictionary to avoid misspelling but I can't.

I downloaded an ebook but turned out it was not what I expected so I deleted it. But after that, I noticed that my search engine and homepage changed. I tried to delete everything I found related to the download I did in the control panel, managed to changed my search engine and homepage back. But whenever I start up Firefox, Awesomeph is homepage though when I click on the homepage icon, Google (which IS my homepage) would start.

I installed a malware software as what's advised on sites dedicated to that problem. Scanned and deleted the 19 threats found, restarted my system but still, Awesomeph is there. What to do?

It just randomly started to happen, on certain websites, or part of the sites, the browser freezes for 2-3 minuts, sometimes ending with a script error message, but more often just freeze and keep on going for ever.

I tried to upgrade from 45.0.1 to beta versions, with same outcome. I tried to clean all junk and cookies, even reseted the browser and tried with a new profile, same outcome. The strange thing is that I tried with a clean installed Waterfox x64 and same issues there.

There are no problems with the x86 Firefox.

This is a recent problem. When I try to print in Firefox, I am asked to name the document, and it gives an extension of qps or some such, whatever that is. When I try to retrieve the document, it cannot be read as there is an error in it. I end up using Internet Explorer when I need to print. I have tried printing from "Ctrl P" and from the pull down menu. Same result.
