Am I crazy or is there something wrong?

I'm getting a new blue dot over the HTTPS icon on all pages. I am using the add-ons Noscript, uBlock and HTTPS everywhere, but this icon is new. I can find no reference to it in support articles; only the secure, insecure, and mixed (warning sign) variations of the icon I am familiar with.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox after getting insecure connections intermittently. I was using a game wiki (starbounder.org) and saw a "debug log" that seemed to be a list of IPs and user agents, with the URL of a site (cloudwayapps). The errors seem to have started after this, though this doesn't make much sense as I've never allowed cloudwayapps to run scripts, but it freaked me out. I cleared my cache and app data and never had an account until now; the install should be fresh. I browse with all javascript blocked by default and stick to major sites.

Attached is the icon displayed as I write this. What does it mean? Also, is there a way to get a "clean" install besides what I've tried? I want to keep using Firefox but these errors have my paranoia going.

Thanks for reading. Any help or feedback is appreciated.

When viewing gmail with my personal account, Firefox is crashing after it loads the conversations in the sidebar.

I have tried resetting, using a private window, and running in Safe Mode

Here is the crash report Id: bp-b36c8ee9-37cb-4dec-9380-2f6320210228

I can repeat this at will. I will try disabling the conversations bar using another browser and then update to see if that helps (it's not crashing when I view my work gmail).

Thanks for your help ;-)

Hello,

I had a 300mpbs connection for download, but was never able to get past 200mbps. But now today, on installing a 1gig connection, I still cannot get past 200mbps. The installer blamed it on my PC's network card. But I just ran the same speed test with Microsoft Edge 64-bit, and I was able to get past 600mbps. So clearly, this problem is isolated to Firefox.

I am using the latest Firefox 32-bit. I have no addons installed. I am running Firefox on Windows 7.

After typing this post, I thought the 32-bit Firefox was probably causing the issue, so I installed the Firefox 64-bit, and the speed increased by 50mbps to 250mbps.

Thank you.

I'm really beginning to wonder why I use Firefox. For years I've felt violently abused (it's not an exaggeration in my head) by the UI team who lord over it in a totalitarian way instead of just giving us options to not be constantly humiliated every day we use it.

The address bar has become my worst enemy lately. I keep staving off "86ing" Firefox from my life by editing the CSS this and that, when it worked just fine for years, but it changes and every time for the worse. How can we effectively get Firefox to give us options? Why are options so bad? Why do we not deserve options? I want to know how we can apply pressure on the institution to make FF usable again.

Here are a few examples, the last is the worst of them:

1) I want to have an X button on tabs, I just want to be able to delete a tab? Why can't I have an option for this? (I have to use crazy CSS script. Normal people don't go to that length. I would not adopt FF out of the box today.)

2) Many complain about the address bar that freaks out whenever you touch it. I want an option to disable that. (Again I have a CSS script that makes it act like normal productivity software. That's insane. Why can't we have an option to make the address bar behave like a normal HTML form element? I just want an option.)

3) As of FF 86 I can no longer use the address bar to perform searches. I've added the Search bar to my UI so I can do searches, but the browser still defaults to the address bar, so I have to click over to the Search bar. And if I use the address bar by accident, it laughs at me and refuses to process my search. I just want to be able to search with an address bar. I remember years ago having to remove the search bar because it would no longer search, but the address bar would search. My radical solution was to amputate the search bar. Now I'm in the complete opposite situation where the search bar searches but the address bar doesn't search. Again, I just want an option to be able to apply searches with my browser.

I just want an option for FF to not be aggressively hostile to me. It's not so simple as to ignore it. Every time you interact with the UI it's its own humiliation. It's a constant reminder of impotence. And questioning why do I subject myself to the whims of these people who're pulling my tail like I'm some monkey.

What the hell is wrong with Mozilla? Is is it still Mozilla? Why can't add-on people effectively address these problems if Mozilla won't? Why dictate how everything is, and then make everything unusable? Why?

How can we make our voices heard? Why can't Mozilla just kill FF if its goal seems to be to do that by making it unusable? Why not just close shop? Because some one will carry it on because it's open source? It really seems like someone wants FF to be unpopular. How else can we understand that it doesn't just give options? No even options in its crazy about:config system? Why am I in this masochistic relationship with FF? What's in it for FF?

I installed Firefox on a MacBook Pro 13" (Mid 2012) with MacOS 10.15.7 Catalina. Before closing Firefox for the first time, I carefully opened settings and ticked "Restore previous session", under "Start" on the "General" settings page. But when I opened Firefox again, there were no tabs, just a "Welcome screen" as if it was the first time ever I use Firefox! This is extremely disappointing! I am really shocked! I had never thought that Firefox would screw me like this! I have been using Firefox on Windows and Ubuntu for many many years! I can add that it is Firefox 85.0.2. And now it updated itself to 86.0.

Hi all When I open Firefox on my iPhone 7 (iOS 12.4.1) it now shows I have 'Firefox Daylight 32.0 (3841)'. When I look online or in Firefox Support there is never any mention of the word 'Daylight' in the latest browser for iOS. Why is that? Are there different iOS browsers I can choose from? If so do I have the only/latest/best iOS for my iPhone?

Also I can't find any setting that gives permission to remember previous entries to online web forms that I fill in (e.g. Covid registering form when visiting restaurants etc.). The When I open some of these forms in Firefox some don't remember my previous entry data, even though i have filled it out for their premise many times before. Is this a function of the particular premise software that they could be using, or is there a setting in my Firefox browser I need to adjust for particular websites?

Thanks in advance for your help. David

I have gone over the troubleshooting steps, I have uninstalled and reloaded mozilla firefox. The only way I can stop this is to go to safe mode. I have downloaded two other browsers today and do not have this problem with the other two browsers, or with any of the software programs on the computer. Any ideas?
