I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

With some websites, when I click on the Reader View, instead of seeing the text from the webpage it shows me what is clearly a privacy disclaimer. (See attached screenshot.) Why is this happening, and what can I do to fix it?

When will option browser.urlbar.maxRichResults work as it used to?

I want about 30 - i.e. a full screen's-worth of Rich Results. No problem once - not now.

Something is seriously FUBAR when a once-working parameter can be changed - but no longer has any effect.

Nothing to do with Top Sites, I believe. I know how to change the balance of what is offered.

I just want parameter browser.urlbar.maxRichResults to work again.

When I initially set up Firefox Monitor, I added 5 email addresses to this service.

After a couple of weeks I would like to add another email address. However, I am not able to find a field to add a new email address.

When going to monitor.firefox.com and logging in, all I can see is the dashboard showing numbers of email addresses and breaches. The button to manage email addresses only leads to a page where I can delete the existing addresses, but not inserting a new one.

Maybe it is just too obvious and I'm blind. Please help.
