Whenever I try opening up firefox to use, I am instead faced with a Bing home page. I have tried uninstalling and installing again but it hasn't seemed to have worked. I am presented with a "Network Protocol Error" saying it can't connect to "segoonow.com" which is malware, and seems to be redirecting me to use bing instead of firefox.

How can I fix this? It's troubling and I don't want it stealing my information and continuing to redirect me to a web browser I don't want to use.

Thank you.

Neither my wife nor I can sign in to our G-mail accounts through Firefox on this computer. We have no problem signing in with either account through another computer. When clicking "Sign in," we get a page related to cache and cookies.

I have gone through the steps to delete "cache & cookies" for MY gmail account with no change in behavior. (My wife did not want me to remove hers because she believes (probably correctly) that her password memory on the PC would be erased!

I suspect we'll have to remove ALL google info from this computer, but don't know how to go about it. The only "App" listed with a google name is Google Chrome.

Suggestions? Remove and reinstall Firefox? Ditto Chrome? (Running Firefox 94. something.) I'd like to see her stick with Firefox, but this is a real barrier.

My firefox browser has had issues displaying fonts when I have the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" box checked. Its not all webpages as some have more bolded fonts, but it is more than one site.

I have scoured these forums trying to locate an answer, but for some reason the fonts are still so thin and unreadable. I have even erased all existence of firefox from my computer and reinstalled, but the issue still remains.

Please help me.

Hello, i've recently made the switch from Chrome to Firefox. However, I am someone who enjoys playing games in their browser. And it occured to me, that firefox seemingly lags and stutters whenever i try to play a game.

The two games i have tested are Zombs Royale and Wormax IO. These are two very minimalistic games with nothing much to them. The slowest computers can handle them...

I have a GTX 1080, with 12 gb of rams. I also tested on my laptop, which has unknown specs, but 4gb of ram.

Both devices performed worse then how they would perform in chromium based browsers. I wish to stick with firefox, as i hear security is a virtue with Mozilla, and Chrome really just wants to steal your data.

I might add, that i did follow a couple steps to make my browser more secure, I didn't disable stuff like webgl, but i disabled a bunch of other settings, here is the video i followed:

https://youtu.be/xxWXLlfqNAo

I did install a few add-ons, such as Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, HTTPS Everywhere, and nightTab(I had this on chrome, and without it i feel home sick.)

I am unsure why these problems occur, as far as i know, my computer should be able to handle this.

I cannot find any other questions related to this, and it is really odd to me. I should also mention, Firefox is also quite slow anyways, it just feels slower than chrome, so i'm unsure if it's an optimization issue or what, but this occurs on all of my computers.

I hope someone can help me thank you.

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

Recently upgraded to Windows 11 and using Firefox 94.0.1.

Yesterday for no apparent reason all web pages I tried to connect to returned "Unable to connect". I thought it was my internet connection but when I tried MS Edge it worked?

I have tried a few of the things suggested - Refreshing Firefox and changing the prefetch but no joy.

MS Edge is still working fine. The image shows 3 pages with Problem Loading. Where to next?

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

Help!

Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.
