Hello, I am still using windows 8.1 64bit & refuse windows 10, due to high risk privacy, yes predictable hollow words are said, BUT is Microsoft, a greedy un-scrupled money making, money hungry corporate entity, wants us to willing give it our private details voluntarily or under thin layer of extortion.

Hence my sticking to windows 8.1 as I have certain control, mainly updates.

Will Mozilla browsers be specifically supporting older operating systems like windows 8.1 into the coming years, not just months, e.g. until January 2023

Yes is a blunt question, but is eluded against in other responses, maybe is Microsoft buy out to sacrifice mozilla loyal users or similar, same query is for Brave browser. Mozilla I think is last Bastian for decency & morality, a leader in justice & honour.

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

Refreshed firefox because youtube loaded in at 280%. Someone said it might be corrupt. I Refreshed and all my passwords are gone and everything else. There is no folder on my desktop with the old info in it. Where is it. There is one old folder from 2018 I never used because at the time I didn't understand what to do. But now I can't get into my firefox account and don't want to rest my password yet because it says everything will be wiped out. This is ridiculous and too complicated. Had I knowed I wouldn't have done it. I have been able to get some things back like favorite sites, but gosh, all my passwords, nuts.

Why doesn't Shift + Delete delete a bookmark from a searchbar? Here is a simple example: Example of deleting history/bookmark

It works like a charm for history items but not for bookmarks. How to fix it? Maybe some options must be turned on? Since it is possible for deleting history items why it's not possible for bookmarks? Maybe you know any extension with this functionality?

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

Seems like this issue recurs every now and again. Right Click on a link and try to "Save Link As..." and Firefox hangs. All of my browsers started doing it in the last few weeks. Suspected PC Matic, as I had installed it recently, but disabling it did not help. Clear Cache and Default Settings seemed to once or twice but then problem persisted.

Looks like it's a bug in the pop-up blocker. Disabled it and "Save Link As..." again works perfectly. Same for all other browsers. Looks like pop-up block does not recognize "Save Link As..." as a permitted pop-up and the system call to File Explorer (Windows 8.1) has nowhere to go. Task freezes solid and can only be killed by Task Manager.

HTH find the real solution. Thanks!
