Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

I am NOT asking to remove content from the drop down - already done. I do not want the drop down to open - at all.

On a Mac the drop down interferes with the normal entry user interface. The normal text interface is: type to move to first/last character use the up/down arrow. The dropdown interferes with this standard behavior. The up/down arrow will not move the cursor to the first/last character in the url - until/ or unless the user hits <esc> to close the dropdown.

I have looked at the browser.urlbar preferences and do not see a setting that will change this behavior.

Is there a way to do this, so that url entry is doen entirely in the url bar - and not in the drop down. (and before this is discussed - I do Not want to have Any type ahead/lookup done on the urls entered, and have already disabled all of these options, so there is no need for the dropdown).

Thank you Mac OS X 10.13.6 FF 81.0

Running Windows 10. Starting Firefox results in a dialog: Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting. ..... If I select "Start in Safe Mode", I then get a crash dialog. Submitted the crash to Mozilla.

Here are some of the crash IDs that got submitted: Crash ID: bp-06614331-6a2d-4fa4-a399-0efb90201015 Crash ID: bp-06614331-6a2d-4fa4-a399-0efb90201015 Crash ID: bp-06614331-6a2d-4fa4-a399-0efb90201015

I am loathe to scrub it and start over - I will lose my bookmarks, my tab setup, and also my saved passwords.

Hello,

I've recently finished building a new computer and have been working on setting everything up, and Firefox Sync has made restoring my browser info quite easy. However I've got two other computers I'd like to try and transfer data from, and unfortunately made the mistake of not syncing the browsers between those two computers beforehand.

So I'm wondering if it's possible to sync the data between the browsers on all three computers and how to do so, and if I attempt to sync the data between them, will they merge together or will one overwrite the other?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

Hi,

Win 10 Latest update. FF 78.0.1 64 bit

After Win 10 update, Firefox cannot access any web sites. -- from command line window I can ping many different websites and servers, including yahoo.com -- I did FF Refresh -- ensured Windows Firewall allows Firefox -- ensured that Firefox is default browser -- uninstalled FF -- got fresh install pgm from another computer via a memory stick. -- rebooted Win 10 -- installed fresh FF pgm

So far nothing has worked.

When I attempt to connect to any website I get Error "the connection has timed out"

Thank you.

Please note, the machine I am posting this on is not the problem machine.
