EVERY time Firefox does an update just about everything changes for me, including my homepage, my icons for add ons are gone, now my link to my email is gone, I always wonder if I'm on the correct version or not. It says I am but what happened to all of my settings. I cannot tell you the number of times I've had to find my THEME and since there is no rhyme or reason as to how the themes are categorized it takes me forever to find the one I want. It doesn't seem to matter what settings I have entered because they are changed along with everything else. I have asked this question before and the answers I have received do not work. And another question. I do not like the background in "black" with the titles highlighted in yellow when I am searching. Very difficult for me to read, I've attempted to change that many times but can't seem to figure that out either. Oh, Lord where is Microsoft 7 when I need it? An OS that even I could figure out.

Perhaps finding the glitch in the changes that always take place after an update should be your next update.

Hello I want to use my extensions but I cant access them. Usually they appear at the bar at the top of the browser, but as of recently I can't use my Add-ons. If you look at the image I shared you will see where the Add-ons should be. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

This is a problem which has been persisting for many months now, and instead of there being some amelioration, it now concerns more and more websites / pages. I suppose those pages are not correctly coded, but as said, FF first shows the scrollbar, then only it vanishes, so I think FF could do something about it? No need to say that for the same pages, other browsers do NOT have that problem. If I want to scroll down the page, I thus have to press the PgDn key several times within the very first second after the page builds (new or by F5), and then, I can see that fixed part of the page further down to which the multiple presses of PgDn key will have got me, but only that part, since even after pressing PgDn, the vertical scroll bar vanishes, and further PgDn presses have no further effect. Since it's just 1 second or even less (perhaps 700, 800 milliseconds, or perhaps even just 500 milliseconds, I don't know precisely) that after loading or renew-loading (F5), the vertical scroll bar is displayed (and PgDn key works), for most pages of such type, I can never reach any parts further down. Is this problem known, does anybody address this problem? ONE example, among dozens: https://www.bauhaus.info/ i.e. www dot bauhaus dot info, the home page and any given page of the site. Instead of fiddling around with all sorts of "enhancements", most of them totally unwanted by 3/4 of the user base, wouldn't it preferable to make sure the CORE functionality of this browser would be maintained to work as expected? I have been using FF for more about 15 years know (automatic updates), but I just see decline.

Please don't keep your users in this hack limbo. Users want tabs on bottom (tabs under address bar). This feature is essential to a community of users that utilize browsing during their jobs. Its a quicker reference for those who must switch back and forth between pages at a quicker rate. This Firefox/modzilla movement to disable these types of add on(s) is why more and more people are switching to Chrome for their customization needs. Which is more support robust and community supported. This is my last attempt before I switch over to a new browser myself. I just cant keep writing code every update you make.

Dear Team of the Product Management,

could you please explain me and maybe also for other interested user the planning about the Bookmark management?

I studied information science, about ontologies and work in IT for 22 year, and am just wondering:

Tagging bookmarks is a recent information need.

Please why is tagging of bookmarks and the search for tags in Firefox Mobile not supported and the Bookmarks Editor in the desktop version is since maybe 20 years so stepmotherly dvceloped?

Your kind words about would be highly appreciated.

Kind regards York

Hello,

Recenetly, firefox updated and logged me off my firefox sync account, i do not remember the password and the only way i could get access back to the account would be to reset my password in the cost of all my data i had on the account, which does not make sense because why would i want my account back if its gonna be empty with no data whatsoever, i would like to believe that theres an alternative solution where i dont have to lose all my logins and passwords.

i have firefox 99.0.1 64 bit in a linux system. i see fail in play of sounds. videos plays well, youtube, soundcloud and others play well, the thing is the play of sound only, in for example dictionary sites

for example in wiktionary in the page Europe sometimes audio plays well the first time, but it sticks at the beginning of play in replay. if i play it in loop in this page https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/46/En-us-Europe.ogg it plays well but again in playing it one time it sticks

in the page english (see the small letter) of the same site as it is not changed to the new control bar i go to menu > players where i have the html5 and javascript options, failing the former and doing well the latter, so you may think the fail is in html5, but in this page http://atticgreek.org/pronunc/sigmaU.html inspecting the page i see that sound works by javascript and i have a similar fail as the first word nósos plays well but the second présbeis again plays only the beginning and sticks

I've installed lots of add-ons thru out the years and when I'm not using them, or just didn't like them, I just go to the "Add-ons" settings and press on "disable" thinking that's the end of the story. But I've become more privacy and security concerned as time passes and now I'm wondering if I should delete all the add-ons that I no longer have any use for, (and some useful ones but are very sketchy).

What I mean is that some add-ons "require" permission to everything you do in your web browser "to work properly" and well that's beyond sketchy. I recently used an old add-on and realized it worked perfectly even after over 2 years of it being disable, I mean even after multiple firefox updates. I realized that the add-on had "automatic updates" turned on so... even disabled it was updating in the background... therefore it was somewhat active.

Now I'm wondering if all of this sketchy add-ons that I've installed thru out the years that need all kinds of weird "permissions" like access to well... -everything- (passwords, history, credit cards, etc...) have been collecting all this data even after I disable them years ago?

Hello, Firefox has been getting worse with the latest updates to the browser. There are several websites I've attempted to visit that I received an error message when using Firefox, but opened without a problem with another browser. I am also having issues when trying to open attachments someone has sent to me in Outlook. I can read the email, but cannot open the attachments to the email. Are there any indications Firefox has been having these problems? If yes, are there fixes in the works?

Over the past few days, I've noticed that whenever I type something in either the Google search bar or the address bar, the search results never load. The page flashes for a second, then stops working. The Google search engine and Google products, e.g. trying to log into Gmail, are the only things affected by this glitch. However, I can access everything and obtain search results in a Private widow, but not by using the regular browser interface. I've been using Firefox for years, and I've never had this issue. I've cleared the cache and I've tried disabling add-ons. How do I fix this issue?
