I am tired of your relentless, a;most daily update notices which can't be turned off. This is an obvious Control Issue with you.

HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY RIGHTS AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

If your service is so flawed that you have to consistently update, them your users need to find another browser/ This is my plan.

Effective now, I will not use your site because of your controlling attitude, lack of support and forced actions. I suggest that other users consider doing this until Moz://a stops this controlling bull shit!

In this environment, we do NOT need someone like you telling us what to do.

You're wrong, you're stupid and you're going to loose in the long run as your users are not going to put u p with this relentless BS!

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

As I understand it, FF will soon start updating regardless of my settings. I have my update set to "Never", but it sounds as if I will no longer have say in all of this mess.

The most important feature for me is the old Tab Groups V. 2.1.4. It by far the biggest time-saver I have. Without this, I would have a heck of a time manually bringing up various tabs all the time and it would entirely foul up my schedule.

How do I keep TB from automatically updating?

Anyone know a replacement for the Tab Groups that could just take my existing tabs (over 100) and use them w/o doing it manually?

Thanks!

Hello,

For a couple of months there has been a change in Firefox that I haven't had time to address.

When I do a search, and click on a link, it opens in a new tab, instead of the tab the link was in. I don't want multiple tabs open. It uses a lot of resources.

In the screenshot below, I did a search in the first tab, clicked a link, and the 2nd tab opened.

Anyone know what I am missing in the settings to stop this?

Information on your download page (desktop, Windows) is obscured by floating popup prompting one to download Firefox! Why have any information at all, then? Why not just have a blank page with a download button? As in, if you don't already know all about Firefox, then you don't want it? But maybe I want information about a browser before I download it -- you tantalize me with fragments but you don't let me see it. WTF! There are already download buttons on the landing page. Maybe you don't want to frustrate people so that they give up on Firefox because they don't trust ANYBODY WHO CAN'T DESIGN A DOWNLOAD PAGE THAT IS ACTUALLY READABLE!

I have used Hobbyking for many years. With the most recent update, I am no longer able to log in. I have disabled NoScript and it made no different. When I try to log in, the page just flashes and will not proceed after I press the log in button. I'm running 92.0.1 (64-bit).

Note, login works fine on Chrome, but I refuse to use Chrome for anything.

Hello, I'm using Firefox 92.0.1 for Mac OS (10.12.6). Upon restarting my computer, my bookmarks were lost. First, it was stated that "The bookmark and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software may cause this problem." When I tried to restore the old bookmarks, it there was a list from which I could select, but every choice resulted in an "unable to process the backup file" response. Upon restarting my computer and reinstalling Firefox, It now said "for quick access, place bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar." That said, it won't let me do so.

I've tried the other recommendations offered through support for restoring bookmarks (though, admittedly, many were outdated, referencing links circa 2016), and have had no luck so far. If the worst case scenario is that the old bookmarks can't be accessed, is there at least a way to reestablish the bookmark and history system and start anew?

Thanks in advance. (Attached below are examples of the error message.

I've had several instances when the browser would freeze after logging out of my user and/or when the internet cuts out on windows 10 Home 19043.1237. I figured it would stop after an update of Firefox (i currently have it set to automatic) but it hasn't. Even when I stepped away from the computer and it went to sleep, the browser froze and I had to force quit.

I embedded a Youtube livestream video and the live stream chatbox into a web page, the video was loaded successfully but the live chat box shows "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at xn--www-gn0a.youtube.com." I am not sure where xn--www-gn0a.youtube.com is from, in the code, I did not refer to this youtube URL at all.

This issue happened only in Firefox. Chrome, IE are fine. Anyone knows why?

Thanks!
