My questions apparently have no answers so I now use Firefox only to download Youtube and IE for everything else.

I had two questions. One, Firefox always remembers history no matter what I do. I must run Ccleaner to clear Firefox history. Two, on many web sites there is no vertical navigation bar. These issues have not been answered. Now I only use Firefox to download Youtube videos and use Internet Explorer 11 for everything else. IE is more secure with all history easy to erase without resorting to Ccleaner. This is too bad, as otherwise I enjoy using Firefox more than IE or Chrome. If there is any solution to the two issues I have with Firefox, I would like to see them.

I have the latest Firefox running in Windows 8.11 on an hp laptop.

Just updated to Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 which was supposedly going to fix loading issues and my facebook wouldn't load the full pages after that update. Went in and did a history cache delete as suggested and now facebook won't load at all on the home page, get a whole lot os white space... wth very frustrating. My personal page loads videos and all but not the front home page.

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?!!!

Firefox problems with kaspersky internet security

"KASPERSKY INTERNET SECURITY 2016 DISABLED BY FIREFOX jscher2000 Nov 2, 2016, 4:05:56 AM

Hi boldeagle, Firefox can't disable your Kaspersky security software, only the add-ons that Kaspersky adds to Firefox. And if you have one of the more recent updates for the 2016 version, they got rid of several of their older extensions and are installing a new one that definitely should be signed and verified.

Could you share with us your current list of enabled and disabled extensions? The simplest way is to view the full list on the troubleshooting information page. Either:

   "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Troubleshooting Information
   (menu bar) Help > Troubleshooting Information
   type or paste about:support in the address bar and press Enter/Return

Then scroll down to Extensions and just below that heading, select the table with your mouse and copy it (either Ctrl+c or right-click > Copy), then paste it into a reply (either Ctrl+v or right-click > Paste). It will look a bit messy, but we're used to it. Thanks."

Here is the screen (unfotunately is in Italian..............)

Estensioni Nome Versione Attiva ID Adblock Plus 2.8.1 true {d10d0bf8-f5b5-c8b4-a8b2-2b9879e08c5d} Kaspersky Password Manager 3.8.8 true kpm_win_add_on@kaspersky Kaspersky Protection 4.6.2-42-20160922074409 true light_plugin_D772DC8D6FAF43A29B25C4EBAA5AD1DE@kaspersky.com Multi-process staged rollout 1.3 true e10srollout@mozilla.org Pocket 1.0.4 true firefox@getpocket.com Video DownloadHelper 6.1.1 true {b9db16a4-6edc-47ec-a1f4-b86292ed211d} Web Compat 1.0 true webcompat@mozilla.org Adobe Acrobat - Create PDF 1.0 false web2pdfextension@web2pdf.adobedotcom

the new update 57.0.4(64 bit) carries a bug. i hit a new tab, and the taskbar shows a new window. chrome isn't showing up anything like this, so probably its an issue with firefox only. i use a windows8.1 64 bit system. problems are more while closing the application. i need to close every tab(better call it window) separately. Iam attaching a screenshot for more elaborations. you can see the windows overlook through taskbar shows the exact tabs on top of the screen. number of outlines of firefox in the taskbar used to represent the number of windows. till last week it used to be just one for multiple tabs on same window. but you can see now they are equal to number of tabs on the same window expecting a reply ASAP

Have been emailing Fredmcd, but he has disappeared. When I click on Bookmarks goes to a dialogue box instead of actually bookmarks. Then I have to click on 'from Internet explorer." I have done 3 uninstalls 2 without personal settings, did a reset issue stays the same. very annoying. See from above FF has a LOT of dialogue box issues. Would seem this is a design issue can't get rid of. Please advise. HP says its a FF27 issue. I have Windows 8.1 which seems to have lot of compatibility issues with FF27! I have a screen shot of this issue.

thanks
