Currently Firefox will not allow extensions webroot, dashlane, or Lt. any of my chosen extentions. If this is not cleared up soon I will use edge for my yahoo accounts. I will not reinstall because I should not need to. I am tired of Firefox inconsistency.

When i close firefox it does not close the task, the process is still running. I have to manually close it every time with the taskmanager and i have no clue why this is like that. I already repaired firefox but this didnt change anything. Im not sure if this is a Windows problem or a Firefox problem but i think its Firefox because this error occur on a Windows 7 and a Windows 10 System.

Okay, I understand the need for security. I completely understand that you want people to be verified and not introduce malware to systems. I get it, but not giving people the option to say "Go ahead, I'll take the risk." Is just asinine. I know I'm not the only one pissed off at this. My main problem is that you've now disabled my ad blocker and tracking cookie blocker without my permission. Or is that your intention? I pray that it is not, but if this cannot be resolved, I will have to switch to chrome.

Does Mozilla have ANYONE with an enterprise IT background? At large banks, healthcare and other organizations I've worked for there would be a management led conference call with hourly public updates on matters a fraction of the devastating impact of this certificate problem. Should be a flash traffic message at mozilla.org.

Why has someone in management not made the decision to post a hotfix that works? The "studies" solution is just unacceptable. I sincerely hope some management heads roll over this.

After updating to version 66.0.3 (32bit) of Firefox I noticed that some of my Privacy & Security settings are different -- I seem to remember -- from what I had previously set them to be.

Under Logins & Passwords, although neither "Ask to save logins and passwords for website" nor "Use a master password" is selected and "Saved Logins..." is empty, version 66.0.3 offers a selection on some websites.

I learn to program back in the dark ages when Assembler and Fortran where the main program languages and Cobal was being developed on a 4K and then 16K puters. Programmers really had to know what they were doing as well as being careful not to drop the trays of cards when loading programs.

It's too bad that most of today hot-shot IT wizards don't have to be as concerned!!!

It seems that you enabled sync, and now I find you have stored data that I do not want you to have. I understand that you have strict data sharing policies. I don't care. I operate under the concepts of 'need to know' and 'single point of failure'. I do not need or want the convenience of stored data.

I've never seen a browser do this before. It looks like it is opening a new tab, then another and another at a high rate of speed. It just keeps going until I shut the app down. This only happens when I am trying to print a label at the eBay site.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
