I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

How Firefox has been acting since last couple of updates

I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

For the first time in a week I went directly to my GMX account but couldn't se my emails, contacts or any information other than the form layouts the pages are blank, however in Opera everything is seen. Also for many months Firefox doesn't allow the Recaptures to load so many sites, and services like sending of contact forms, wont work, its extremely frustrating as Firefox has all my passwords. I could go to Pale moon is the PW's can be shared as a FF user of over 20 years it is my preferred browser and would appreciate these issues resolved please.

Hi. Can anyone tell me if it would be possible to display all 3 rows of toolbar bookmarks in my bookmark toolbar? It used to show 3 rows, but I changed my monitor's display settings to make the text bigger, and now I can only see the first row of bookmarks at the top of the screen in Firefox. Thanks.

I intend to upgrade my desktop PC from Win 8.1 to Win 10 soon due to Microsoft discontinuing support for 8.1 next January and I want to know how to preserve all my current settings in Firefox (including saved Pocket articles). Also, does anyone know for certain whether or not Firefox will be automatically migrated to Win 10 in the upgrade? (If it does, maybe that will answer my first question?)

I just tried to open a new window using File, New Window. It is GONE. I always use that. Now all I get are New Tab New Container Tab (grayed out so I can't select that) New Private window, some other stuff.

The same is true if I right click. I get: Open Link in New Tab Open Link in New Private window.

What did I do to cause these changes?

UAC notification pops up every time I try to open Firefox since last update on 5/5/22. I've deselected all options that run the program as an administrator, but it still shows up every time. I've checked that no admin is selected in both the shortcut I use and in the program itself. Any suggestions?

How to remove (for good) FF message window after screenshot

After I take a screenshot -- using the very handy FF command that now sits on my address bar -- a message box opens in the bottom right of the screen that says, Duh, "your shot was copied to the clipboard" and then gives instructions for pasting it. Although that seems to be fairly elemental information that is unnecessary, even if there is a good reason to keep it, must that message window always be in the same position? That is really a problem as it obscures one's ability to navigate on a page upon which he may be working. Look at the attachment. The FF window is covering the location where I want to put my cursor to work on that page that is in the background. In this case, I wanted to make sure the cursor was positioned in a different place for another screenshot I might put there (below the existing one).

Since I'm familiar with pasting or copying the screenshot and how to do that before this window opens, how can I remove for all screenshots, now and in the future, this window opening?

Thank you.

After updating to 91 version almost all my addons stopped working in private mode.

When FF team decided to block all addons for private mode there was a setting in about:config to allow all adons to work in private mode, but it looks like it is removed in 91 (?) or renamed (?).

So, how to enable all addons to work in private mode at once ? I have a lot and clicking each one in its settings will take a lot of time.

I am using FF 64 bit, latest version (91), on Win8.1. Out of nowhere, FF has ceased to load any pages but mozilla's own pages like the help page I'm writing on. I've no themes installed and 2 windows open with approx. 155 tabs. I've tried turning of hardware acceleration, checked for proxies, updated FF, restarted FF, checked the Windows firewall (all permissions granted) and avast antivirus (ditto), checked for malware with avast antivirus - but all to no avail.

I am at a loss with this problem and kindly ask for advice. Januario

Several months ago, I was not able to access my contacts or calendar. In other words, no response when trying to click on any of those icons. However, I tried a different browser such as Edge and everything worked fine. So.....am I going to have to change my default browser. It kinda looks like I will use Edge from now on. Any thoughts........ Use Yahoo mail.

Lately: these issues have popped up. I have all the FF updates. 1. I keep getting Crash Reports (never had thee before) 2. My passwords are not saved and I have to continually re-enter, esp. on Twitter and IG 3. When I close my computer to Sleep, Windows keeps asking me to Update and Restart.

   When I do, it goes through the process and then says Windows could not Update and 
    is undoing the changes. Is it a conflict with FF?
    I have the Avast Secure Browser and their Support said I can uninstall it and it would
    not take away anything on my FF browser. True?

Thanks for any and all your help.
