Why do I feel like, every time I upgrade to the latest version of Firefox, that I'm a new user having to jump through the same questions/hoops, close extra windows, and feel like I'm being bombarded by the combined sales forces of Google, Amazon, and ATT DirectTV all at the same time trying to sell me something?

All I want is a browser that works. Which is what I've wanted since I began using Firefox over a decade ago. I don't want to be "upsold" nor do I want "fries with that". Just a browser (that works).

Please TONE IT DOWN A NOTCH! Or you just might drive this long time customer to something else like, god forbid, EDGE! Geezus...

Hello, I would like to use the search function in the tab again. How can I adjust this? At the moment it is so that when you enter it it appears right above in the link line (see picture). I would like it to be in the search below, directly in the tab. Before version 88 this was possible. Why was it removed?

hallo, ich möchte wieder im Tab die Suchfunktion nutzen. Wie kann ich dies einstellen? Zur Zeit ist es so, daß bei einer Eingabe es gleich oben in der Linkzeile erscheint (siehe Bild) Dabei möchte ich es unten in der Suche, direkt im Tab haben. Vor Version 88 war das möglich. Warum wurde es entfernt?

So basically the title explains everything. I press the three lines in the right corner, click "Sign In" and it just takes me to the page that I have attached a photo of. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it twice, restarted my laptop, I do not know what to do.

Most times I access a web site with calendars (e.g. when trying to book travel) the calendar(s) that appear show the correct day and date but when I click on the desired date it populates the field with an incorrect date.

For example I will choose Thursday 22 April 2021 from the calendar but when I click on that date to populate the travel date it will show as Thursday 20 April 2021. This problem happens on most of the sites where a pop-up calendar displays and more often than not an incorrect date appears when I exit the calendar.

In Windows 10 Firefox version 90.x, I see Google shopping missing page parts. Not sure what to call the strip of products, see images. Google Chrome renders the page as expected, and previous Firefox releases looked similar.

I've been using Firefox to do my internet banking for years, but last week suddenly it doesn't work any more. I get a message saying "Bad Request Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit."

Please can someone sort this out as I rely heavily on Firefox for this purpose.

Using Microsoft Edge it all works as normal, so that is my work-around, but would prefer to use Firefox if I can.

Have been through the previous advice given regarding this topic & most of it is of no help. There is no 'old firefox data' folder on the desktop or elsewhere, so presume this is not due to an update. I also haven't recently installed any AV software. The logins.json file and logins-backup.json file have reduced down to 2KB, when they should be much larger (approx 100KB). Both files dated 31/07/2021. Fortunately I have a number of PC's - one of which I used Firefox on yesterday, so I have copies of both .json files dated 30/07/2021. They are both sized 125KB. I have noted that the PC's all have 2 User profiles, the first being the .default profile & the second the .default-release profile. On the PC I am having the problem with, the active profile appears to be the .default profile whereas on the other PC's it is the .default-release profile. I am going to replace the 31/07/2021 files with the 30/07/2021 files & see if that solves things, but it won't answer why the situation happened in the first place. Just to clarify, the active profile on all the PC's is the only one that contains the logins.json and logins-backup.json files. In fact, on the other PC's the non-active profile only contains one file: times.json, whereas on the problem PC it contains a lot more, sub-directories as well as files.

I would like to target the whole of the main content pane in Firefox in order to overlay a visual filter on top of it.

Although websites can be altered with scripts and Firefox offers colour options in its preferences, these are imperfect workarounds that only target specific elements of the websites. Instead, I would like to overlay a translucent filter over the main content pane itself that would allow me to control the appearance (dimness, saturation, contrast) of the entire main content pane rather than individual elements of a website.

How would I do that? Which files, which code snippets?
