I just logged on and went to Netflix. I was logged in under an account I haven't used in a year. While trouble shooting the issue I discovered the browser updated and synced my old account with my new one. This included passwords and logins that were compromised in data breaches. I don't even use the old computer or any of those passwords. Now I can't even get Netflix to play on there with the correct login data. I took that old account info out and deleted the cookies from compromised accounts. Can anyone tell me how to fix the sites, other than switching away from Firefox entirely?

I am not happy and can't even leave feedback to get real support from the people who did this dumb stunt without even asking me first.

Hello, On May 14th 2021 an update occurred. I had no warning and I lost most of my computer settings as well all my Firefox bookmarks. I didn't manually backup my bookmarks lately so I thought I could retrieve them in the Windows.old file but there is no such file on my computer. If Firefow was also updated, why there hasn't been creation of a bookmarkbackup? Is there a way to recover my bookmarks? Thanks for your help. CLC

Microsoft has dumped this latest Upgrade on us users [19042.985], despite 1909 being good for another few months. There are lots of complaints, but the main one for FIREFOX - I hate EDGE - is that the pictures on MSN Homepage keep defaulting to a greyscale. The titles can be moused and the enclosed articles read. I can't find an answer, and shrink from asking THEIR Community, as the experts seem t be hibernating. Any ideas, please?

When I tried to access Doxyme.com it told me that I needed to update to the latest version of Firefox or I would have no video. When I check Firefox it said I was updated with version 88, but I noticed there is a version 89 in the Que When I attempted to download version 89 it did not respond; has 89 been released for installation or are they still working on it? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you, Hayward

Firefox is having trouble loading certain pages, including with Facebook messenger but also a bunch of other sites. It'll just stop loading despite that the address is still in the toolbar and the screen is still white. If I refresh a few times, maybe go to a different part of the same website and navigate from there, I do always manage to get there, but not sure what the problem is. This problem is new this week, and I think came from either switching internet providers earlier this week or trying out "Hopin" the next day, a video conferencing platform that my computer/internet totally couldn't handle. (I didn't notice the problems before trying Hopin but perhaps I didn't notice that first day.)

I have cleared my cache and cookies, and have also tried (following the advice of another answer on the same issue) renaming the Firefox program folder and installing Firefox again. I'm on Windows 10, 64-bit HP laptop. My extensions are uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, Malwarebytes, Honey, Facebook Container, and Colour -- but all of these I had long before this issue started.

Nnother issue is, if more than one tab is open, can I just click backwards and forwards onto different sites/pieces of work? I used to be able to do this in Google, but in Firefox it has proved impossible. If more than one tab is open, where would the other tabs be? On top, or at the bottom of the screen?

I am using mozilla more then 10 years.

Today all my bookmarks disappeared. I have no chance to install them again. Neither with the star nor with the menue. I followed all recommendations of firefox to repair it. The bookmark bar is still there. But with no content.

Does anyone has an idea?
