my uBlock is on but ads still play on youtube my stylish doesn't have any of the styles i've installed anymore and every time i try to install a new one firefox freezes firefox color no longer automatically applies my theme (i have to go find the website and select it) and i lost the ability to load outlook.com/owa but thanks to a trick another user here (FredMcD) taught me (Manage data/Forget this site) i was able to regain access to it.

Also I would hope that it goes without saying but any responses suggesting Resets/Nukes will be ignored and reported. Let's try to work together to get this issue sorted out.

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

Is it too much to ask that the "Exceptions - Cookies Site and Data" dialogue box has some kind of search function?

It is almost impossible to search through hundreds of entries to find the one you need to unblock or change. The Sqlite file permissions.sqlite is of course a binary file so we cannot go and search there. This has been the case for years and years and no recognition that somehow when you put an entry in a large list you may just want to change your mind without spending hours finding the entry or even being able to check if it exists or not.

Just like the cookie dialogue please put a search function here. It's not rocket science!

For the last at least 25 releases, FF has gotten continually more hostile to someone like me who is visually impaired. I had read that FF was going to stop using the hamburger for menus because screen readers couldn't process it. That has not happened. Hamburgers, paper airplanes, icons instead of text, triple dots, and selector switches to turn settings on and off are all anti-accessibility. I don't like any of those features anyway. What is wrong with words like, "Menu," "Submit," or "Send"? This has been getting worse and worse over time. I don't know if the developers for FF are simply oblivious to the problems that they are causing or if they know but don't care. Gmail is worse but it seems like FF is following Google. What a horrible thing to do for accessibility, among other things. At least, though, Gmail on my phone can use the pinch technique to make the text larger. Firefox on my Android phone will not allow that. I cannot enlarge text in any window in the native FF phone app. This anti-accessibility is to pervasive it seems deliberate. Why is this being done????

Foxnews.com seems to have changed something. I can defeat the video autoplay but as soon as any page loads audio commentary of the videos is blasting me out of the room. Can't seem to stop it.

Wanted to ask before I go changing a gazillion things that could just induce more problems...

Firefox 75 Broke login and proxies to Employer's system

I am an academic librarian working from home. Literally for years, I've been able on Windows 7 and now Windows 10 to log into my grad school's online system including access to databases. Much of this requires a proxy for authentication. Before I describe the error, let me say that I installed Zotero over a year ago and have never had problems with it. Now, when I try to login, I get this, even when trying only to log in. There are two lines. The yellow bar that is hard to read because it keeps flashing but here's my best shot: Zotero automatically redirected your request to gslibrary.authn.worldcat.org through the proxy at gbtssbc.idm.oclc.org. Some space then "Don't proxy this site Proxy settings X

If your browser does not continue automatically, click here. I have tried numerous times to click "here" but I can't. For one moment, both the tellow bar and the message this is normal black text on white shows and then the yellow bar disappears and the black text moves up on the page. When I try to click "here" it keeps jumping around. I"ve never seen anything like this in many years on Firefox.

   I can successfully log in and use resources with the proxy on Opera. It does not complain. Someting about Firefox 75 is broken. I prefer using Firefox the most of the browsers available but I can't work like htis. I need to look up books and help users search for journal articles all the time. I cannot do without that. I don't really like Opera because of the lack of options but this is the straw that breaks the camel's back. If I cannot fix this, bye-bye Firefox. That's pretty serious for me for me but I must be able to work from home efficiently. Note: I disabled the Zotero plug-in. I asked on the Zotero forum and got some suggestions that didn't really help. I don't think it is Zotero. Zotero is only showing up because it connects to our librayr system. How can I fix this? I don't even know precisely what is wrong but for one thing, it shows the wrong URL  for logging in. That hasn't been true for a long time. I do not want to clear all my saved passwords and cookies to fix what is pretty clearly a FF 75 bug. I was a programmer a lot of years on complex systems. All the fingers are pointed at FF 75.

"question: says it all. I have gone to "Options' and checked all the boxes and still I get only an abbreviated list of sites that I visit or have visited and this does not change with time. I have been using Firefox for years and this has never happened after an upgrade. For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.

I hate how now when I use Cmd-L or click on the location/search bar, it 'magnifies' or gets bigger. I find it gets in the way of the bookmarks bar. I don't need this, find it aesthetically unpleasant, and would love to be able to turn it off. I'm sure it was a 'feature' that was added in some recent update - why not make it configurable? Or maybe it is and I can't see how to adjust it?

When I key www.<website>.com in location bar and hit enter, Firefox uses http://www.<website>.com, not httpS://www.<website>.com, to find the website. Most of the time the http:// version does not resolve to a website. It just hunts and hunts and hunts. This same thing happens many times when I click on a link in gmail which I open in Firefox.

Since we are all supposed to be using httpS:// these days, why doesn't Firefox default to https://?

Is there some setting that I'm missing?

Thanks, Caitlin
