Today, when I went to use Google, both the search bar and the address bar had been hijacked by Yahoo. Steps I took: 1. checked to make sure Google had been selected (it had) 2. cleared all cache and history and rebooted (didn't help) 3. Ran Malware Bytes (found nothing) 4. deleted Firefox from my computer and downloaded a fresh version (didn't help) 5. searched for suspicious applications, etc. on my hard drive

At this point, I became suspicious of Enhanced Tracking Protection, but I can't turn it off because I cannot locate either Options or Menu. I remain suspicious that ETP is what is causing this issue, but welcome any insight.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

Earlier in the past, I downloaded Beta but I was disappointed because I COULD NOT FIND OR SEE MY BOOKMARKS.. Sadly and annoyingly, same thing happened now! I have lost all my bookmarks and bookmark folders. I would be grateful if you could please help me get my bookmarks back. Regards, HAKAN [email]

I am using 79.0 (64-bit) now, but since many versions back, Chinese input stops working in Firefox and I have never got around to deal with it. On Windows 10, I have other languages keyboard such as Russian/Japanese/Chinese/French etc. Depending on the need, I switch to other keyboard to enter the language in various places such as search box, form on a page etc. However, since many versions back (I can not remember when), Chinese language (pinyin) input stops working. If I don't get any tips on resolve this, I will enter a bug. Yes, I already tried the safe mode.

I am stuck between two machines and can't stay on beta updates anymore because FF won't let me sync my profiles anymore.

If I can't migrate my beta channel profile to the release channel, how can I quit beta updates until the release channel catches up to me?

FF preference selected is 'download updates but let me install them' but really there is no choice. It installs and next opening of FF it is automatically installed. I already changed about:config preference for update channel to 'release' but FF merrily kept on with beta channel updates.

I need my beta channel profile customizations--varied management of permissions and add-ons and passwords on dozens of sites, customizations to stop the blinking and autoplay and movement and noise.

But: FF won't let me keep them if I go back to release.

So: how can I force FF to stop updating while the release channel catches up?

Mac/Mojave Beta channel 80.something, need to sync with release channel 79
