I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Earlier, when I you wanted to go to a specific folder in the Bookmarks in the Sidebar, you just typed the first letter of the folder. Now, when you do the same, Firefox will type the letter to the search box! Can this be changed?

I have had Firefox for years, and now it is seriously messing up. Firstly, when i open it up as usual, it opens for a second, then vanishes. Secondly, my settings are set for Firefox to restore my previous pages, but it does not anymore. Thirdly, my task manager is showing that there are 12 Firefox windows already open, ( which you can see by the attachment). Can anyone help in this matter please? Please note also that i am a basic computer user, so any help offered would have to be as basic as possible. Thank you.

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

I can't insert spaces to my text on Youtube search bar and comment section. The space bar acts as a media play pause button. The issue appears only on Firefox, I've tried Edge and the space bar behaves normally there on Youtube. Adds a space on text boxes and plays or pauses the video when the video box is selected. I know this might be a dumb solution but I have had way too much on my back the past week I just cannot deal with this now.

Hellow all

An unexpected firefox crash has completely ruined where I was before. I am completely bewildered over this one. I lost my bookmarks so I´ve selected toolbars and the bit regarding new folder but nothing happens. This step by step approach isn´t working and in no time a time out occurs. I cannot restore and opening a new tab all I get is an unstoppable wheel. It´s pretty hopeless.

Has anyone any ideas ? rich

Got online this morning, and Firefox "upgraded" to a newer version. Now, I have no home page, no bookmarks, no history, etc. This happened several "updates ago, a few years ago, if memory serves. How do I get all those back? Last time, they apparently sent out a "fix". Thanks,

This problem just started today. I am very angry. what is going on with Firefox? Websites are filled to the brim with annoying ad's. and you tube videos are constantly interrupted with ad's!!!!! What is with all the ad's? This problem has not existed until today. Please STOP this! And, No, I can not just wait a few seconds then click on "skip ads" because I am looking at videos on a computer screen while sitting away from the computer in a chair so constantly having to get up, walk to the computer, click on "skip ads", walk back to my chair is an annoyance! Just stop with all the ads!

Every time I see New Improved Firefox I groan as it means that what I am used to no longer functions.

Case in point click on FF open page and I have 3 search bars and trying to use just the Firefox will not allow any type to show up just in top two.

1. How do I eliminate the top two?? 2. How when typing can I get it to show up in the Firefox address bar as it has done for the past 12 years???????

The old saying if it aint broke do not fix it comes to mind!! Robin S.

I have to keep reinstalling everything and losing most of my files in the process. I'm tired of trying to talk to Microsoft because they don't care. Is Windows going to be better or should I just get rid on my computer? I have lost all of my Architectural Specifications and closed down my business. Microsoft doesn't care and tells me to go someplace else if I don't like their Programs. I would someone to show me how to fix this mess.
