Hi experts, recently I installed and run Firefox Quantum 65.02 64 Bit Edition. I was very pleased with all. I am writing this request since I truly want Firefox Quantum be the best ever. I found some bugs but I will start with the most important request : the Bookmarks need your help. The Bookmarks are set in a JSON format file and Import can lead to an XML format file. The bug is that you cannot restructure or rename many bookmarks (Favorites) in Explorer mode as I can do with IE.v11. As example : with the Favorites folder of IEv11, I can Manage or Rename many .URLs simultaneously. So we need the Firefox Quantum developers to have a JSON to URL converter tool so that we can manage the many Firefox Q bookmarks in Explorer simultaneously. It will be a kind of Bookmarks Folder in Explorer ... That will be great. Then Firefox Quantum will make then background URL to JSON conversion so that it will update all the Bookmarks in Firefox Quantum ... I hope that you can convey this IMPORTANT Feature directly to the Developer Group concerned by Bookmarks. 2019 0310 1732.

I have now 80 tabs open all the time in 2 windows.I am working on few projects. Since last month is stable on Firefox. No other web browser can do it, becouse I send feedback and you fix it was not always good but now its great. I know that 80 tabs everyday is too much but I like to left article to read or eBay web page to search later. Thank You for this effort. I try Chrome but its slowing down Mac computers after few hours, even Safari is a piece of s...trash.

The current update in Firefox has NOTHING to do with me. Nothing that is added or fixed has anything to do with my system or how I use the browser. (This happens FREQUENTLY) I am getting NAGGED by Firefox to install it. (Settings are be notified about updates, I choose when to install). .

I always check and read the detailed release notes. I REALLY resent being forced to install updates that do not relate to my system or what I do in any way!

Please Firefox, PROVIDE OPTIONS to SKIP updates! This feature/option is LONG LONG OVERDUE! Make it so!

I realize those that write the code have to justify their existence, but, having to learn a new look and feel each time, "whoever", decides "this might be better", really sucks! What if someone, every so often, broke into your car and rearranged the layout of the controls. You'd have to learn how to drive all over again. FOR NO GOOD REASON!

I just got rid of 57.0.4 and re-installed an earlier version that LOOKS, AND FEELS THE WAY I WANT IT...

You seem to arbitrarily decide to eliminate numerous add-ons. For years I have been using and working with Scrapbook. By upgrading to Firefox Quantum, all of a sudden somebody decided to call this program 'legacy software' (whatever that is!) and pretty much eliminate it. I had many files on scrapbook which now I cannot access and seem to have just vaporized. This is not a professional way of running and managing a web browser used by millions. Who makes these decisions and based on what criteria you decide to eliminate add-ons without notification. Once an add-on is listed on your site, then one assumes that it could be used and will be there for the foreseeable future. If you want to eliminate whole bunch of add-ons then you need to have a much much stricter criteria for putting them in your list in the first place.

This is very disappointing

This is for the mozilla firefox developers: I wonder why firefox is getting less and less customizable by default as it was in earlier days. Now with Firefox 65 again you repeadedly change a lot so we have to look around for new tuning tips again, that is no fun!

Please, implement a customize option to get the Tabs bar on Bottom (under the bookmarks toolbar) without having to tune the chrome.css, also tab height and width should be customizable for everyone. For all users. Also the functions how tabs and links open is too less so we always have to install addons or tune about:config if possible. Like: - New tabs from all entries url bar, searchbar, bookmarks - open tab (also new ones) next to current

Firefox should be different from chrome and other browsers and should give the user more options to customize. Thanks Claudy


Thanks

I think this is a feature request. Here's what I'm seeing:

  1. do a web search
  2. click on a link that launches a container tab, like Facebook
  3. current tab killed (!) new page opens in container tab
  4. History gone/back button disabled

3 creates a a very frustrating user experience. Since you get no notification that the current tab will be killed by clicking a link, you don't know why your history is gone. It took me a while to figure it out and I'm a developer who's been surfing the web since Mosaic. I found that the history is there if I look at the history tab, which is good. Even better, "undo close tab" resurrects the killed tab.

But why not automatically open the page in a new tab and leave the original one open? I don't see an option for that, but maybe I missed it? Thanks.

When I started Firefox today, I was directed to a survey about local news. The URL looked trustworthy, so I answered all questions best I could and tried to submit the form. It blocked, telling me that I had not answered one question :-(

The question in question (pun intended) was multiple choice with more than one answer allowed. It asked me whether I would normally share local news via various social media channels. But I dislike social media so I had not selected any option.

Unfortunately the survey maker required at least one selected option. Obviously there is no place in today's world for people like me :-(

Result: I buckled and selected ALL options. This allowed me to complete the survey. My apologies for the unreliable survey results!

Recommended solution: Please add an option "None of the above" to this question.

Alternative solution (more polite, IMHO): Allow users to skip questions that they do not want to answer.

Hi , There are 3 negative things in Mozilla Firefox browser:-

1-FireFox is full of ads and Firefox ad blocker is weak it doesn't even block most ads! when I click on something a new tap get opened and I find a page or a website or something I have no relation with it! For example I am in a modding website and I click on search button then a new tap comes and I find another website or page about how to be rich and that is not what I want!. By the way a lot of people prefer Google Chrome browser because it has no ads however I prefer Firefox browser please remove the ads from firefox, Make firefox browser clean of ads.

2-Where is the register button?! I took maybe 15 minutes to find a solution to register in this website then I knew that the only way to register is by volunteering but I don't want to volunteer I just want to register to ask a question! I am sure that I am not the only one who is talking about that there is no register button, Please put a register button so people can register quickly.

3-I have an old account and I forgot its password so I wrote my email to receive a password reset link and I waited maybe 2 minutes or 1 minute and I didn't receive the link so I tried again by writing my email and again I didn't receive the link!

Suggestions:-

1-Please put a "|([fast])|" VPN for Firefox browser because some websites are blocked in other countries. 2-I know that you have many products like firefox focus so can you make a VPN can content a lot of countries please?


Thank you.

Dear Mozilla,

Just wanted to give my thoughts on a video you made.

I am referring to the video with the people walking around with the 'text bubbles' above their head - it's about privacy.

2 key points to start with

1. The video is well made, funny, professional, good flow, good quality 2. I'd like to offer some food for thought

The tag is #YOUBEYOU

Which I like.

however some of the points don't work in this contect. For example, the contruction worker wants to hide the fact he's bought Justin Beiber tickets - then that's a form of guilt / shame - that's not 'You being You'.

It's important that whilst we reinforce privacy, we don't crumble into shameful, non communicative humans that hide away our true selves.

Each scene you had in the video, whilst highlighting privacy, also fails to address the core issue:


1. No baby – this is social values and cultural issues. I personally live between the UK and China so I know everything about parents giving their children pressure to get married. I also know that whilst this is tradition, in this modern age in China it's not how young modern women think. Women still struggle here to compete as equals with men, and the added pressure from parents makes it doubley hard. I met one girl who was literally shaking in tears as she had to go to her home town to her traditional family who would give her the silent treatment and scowl at her for not even having a boyfriend.

2. Blue poop – health information should not be embarrassing and be open. This begs the question: if we were as a society with strong moral values and discipline and a healthy mind balance - then we should not be ashamed of anything being public knowledge. I appreciate if someone has genital warts then they don't want this as public knowledge, but then we also need to address (in that particular case) our society towards sex education, censorship of sex in media etc - is this about privacy or about the fact that as a world we are not open enough because we're all a bunch of depressed perverts? (lol)

3. Justin Beiber – society judging people. Why be ashamed of buying Justin Beiber tickets? Someone would call this guy a 'fag'? 'Oh you fag, you're listening to Justin Beiber' - so we let people be private so they can enjoy their guilty pleasures? Isn't true happiness about sharing?

4. Job satisfaction – better employers and internal happiness. Hapiness comes from the person, not from their job, their boss, their environment. What happened to this woman's life that she doesn't have the confidence to get the job that's right for her? Was it her education? Did kids call her fat at school? Instead of addressing the core issues, she wants to hide away in her own privacy... and to be honest, if you don't like your job - search for a new one at home on the evening or weekend - not whilst you're actually working in the job. final point is that she chose this job also, she accepted the terms and she signed the contract - people should take ownership. (once again, these points aren't about 'poo pooing' the video, they're just points for reflection)

5. Worlds best boss – that needs to be earnt. If he wants that mug, then he needs to earn it. He's got staff outside who are unsatisfied, but alls he's doing is messaging about getting his mug. Instead of being open and doing this the hard (but significantly more rewarding way) - he's hiding away and taking the short term easy route of just buying the mug!

  1. youbeyou – this contradicts the above points made.

you can read these points and think;

1. Don't do anything, who cares 2. feel annoyed that some random person is bringing up lots of bad points that are totally missing the point 3. Take these points constructively and positively (as they are intended) and see this as working progress

Why do I care to spend my valuable time to do this?

I admire and respect what you are doing a lot, and I know the time and effort it takes to pioneer things like this. So I wanted to add some points for reflection.

Conclusion

I feel privacy is a double edged sword, whilst it frees us from judgement in a predominantly sick society, it restricts us from addressing core issues that prolong our sickness.

Now this is a big debate, which is best done over a beer - but the world is sick, it's oppressed by corrupt laws, negative media, incomplete education, poor social standards, poor role models for children (Mylie Cyrus!!!)

Privacy is essential, but that's just half the battle.

Best,

Max

The default language in address bar is English.

So, when I need to search for Chinese characters, it will by default only allows me to input English, even my input method is for Chinese already, it will just switch it to input English only.

It is annoying. Please add an option for "disable the default language to English" or just use the input method that the user is using as the language for search at address bar.

I completely removed Firefox and deleted all folders. After installing Firefox fresh, Firefox sees that it was previously installed?? "Looks like you've reinstalled Firefox. Want us to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience?"

I uninstalled Firefox (supposedly) "completely" using the guide here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer

Why does the new install Firefox recognize that it was previously installed? Uninstall tool needs to uninstall Firefox COMPLETELY. Since it lies, can someone help tell me what is the appropriate steps for COMPLETE removal?

I love Firefox, however it's missing a feature that would help me a lot.

I'm a developer and I switch between the Development and Production web site a lot.

I'm worried I do some action in Production thinking I'm in the Develop one. To minimize the risk there are some measures I take. 1- I use a different user in the Development version 2- The Development version as a different color 3- I use a different browser for Production (Chromium)

I would like to start using Firefox in Production too, but in order to make it safe I need to be able to change the Firefox icon in the Operating system status bar. This way I always see with icon in the Operation System status bar I should click to go to the Production Browser. If for security reasons the Firefox icon can not be changed for each profile, then if you add a "save to desktop" chrome like feature it should do the trick. In my particular use case, since the Development version does not have the favicon, It would be enough to Firefox display the favicon of the current selected tab instead of the Firefox icon.

Thanks

Even if they will never answer, I wonder if it's possible to get a message through to actual people working at Firefox? I was planning to send a meaningful donation as they were requesting. Then, in the last 2 days, my Firefox both reverted back from my Google to their preferred Yahoo search, and stopped showing the seconds along with the hour and minute in the time presenting feature at the top right of the screen. I'd like them to know that at least one long time customer is dissatisfied with this, and foregoes support to them strictly because of it. Thanks. Jim San Francisco

Quantum is a mess, a serious loss of functionality because it removes the rich, powerful suite of add-ons/tools. These tools were what made Firefox so popular among the tech literate and a go-to for tech companies that used browser add-ons to create internal tools.

This is not just a complaint against change, I dearly hope you are listening and recognize what a disaster this is shaping up to be. The "speed difference" between modern browsers (non-mobile) is so negligible that it is meaningless... customization and the ability to use 3rd party privacy software are the hallmarks of tech literate users (which are and have been your base). Please do not disregard this, the 'upgrade' to Quantum smacks of executive level decisions that are badly out of touch with reality (or a dev team that is not equipped to handle a major release). If you abandon your users to chase Edge/Chrome users, you will simply cease to be relevant.

Please revert or release a 'classic' version (with legacy add-on support) or this will be the end of Firefox. This is a product management level decision but Mozilla has no future against Edge/Chrome if this course is maintained. It is ironic that you are destroying your own market position, all but handing the big two the future. If this is the future of Firefox, I will make sure to recommend against Mozilla products in the future.
