Your ads are all over my computer even in programs that are not yours. This is very intrusive and annoying. No one is going to look at these and one has to get rid of them to continue using other programs.

How do I stop these ads from coming on my computer?

Hi, So I'm on Facebook. A friend has a new post. The post is all squished together, almost on top of the other line. I have looked over my settings to see if there is a way to alter the spacing but to no avail. I now realized why I stopped using Firefox a little while back and this is the main reason. If I can't read posts on social media apps on my computer browser what's the use?

Suggestions and fixes MOST welcome before I throw my hands up again. Edge is messed up in other ways as is Opera so I'd really love to have just ONE browser that I can depend on. Considering I used to be a HUGE fan of FF back in the day before the entire code was rewritten I'd love to be back in the fold. If this can be resolved I'll stay. For sure.

Thanks so much Richard

Problem loading images on Home Depot website. It happens when you want detailed images of a product. This is not just one linux distribution. Its many of them. In the case of Ubuntu same problem with Snap version. Whether .deb or Snap doesn't matter.

I've got a test machine with 10 ssd's in it. I switched over to Ubuntu 24.04 that I installed/configured several months ago. Before updating I checked Firefox. It was version 125. No problems with Home Depot. Updated system. Firefox updated to 128.0. Home Depot wouldn't load images anymore. Did all the usual stuff like disabling a couple of extensions. There are only two. Adblock Plus and Weather. Other than that no changes to Firefox that would be a problem.

I've got Google Chrome installed on these machines too. Home Depot no problem. Images of product load and display fine.

I don't order much on Home Depot so using Google Chrome is not a problem for me. But it is annoying and I know I'm not the only one. Seen it posted in a few forums with no resolution. Also, I have not had any problems with Amazon or Lowes website.They are similar in that they display detailed images of each product. I'm not implying that Home Depot is the only one. Just that its the only one I have discovered. If I recall correctly 127.x may have been where it started. The general images of many products don't seem to be a problem.

Thanks, Gerald

bookmarks gone after doing a factory reset on my Macbook despite signing into same Mozilla profile

Hiya good citizens of the internet 👋

Please help me recover my bookmarks 🥺

I've gone through every single support article on this topic and tried everything suggested and still no luck. This is my hail mary.

How I got here I needed to do a full wipe and reinstal of my macOS; this was conducted with the help of the Genuis bar. Upon reinstalling Firefox, I signed into my account and my bookmarks are all gone, records of them empty.

I should also note that nothing else ported over. No passwords, no browser extensions. Nada. The passowrds and extensions aren't a big deal. I use a 3rd-party password manager and can easily re-download the handful of extensions/widgets. But I heavily relied on bookmarks for both frequently visited sites and ones rarely-used which I knew were important for future reference. And I cannot remember 80% of them...

What else I've tried other than what's suggested in help article:

  • Because I did not check to confirm which Firefox profile I've been signed into for ages and ages before doing the reset, I thought maybe I had just signed into the wrong one. I proceeded to try every other email address I have, including two from my old workplace. None of the other 5 emails had profiles created. I know this because it prompted the sign up userflow; create a password, etc.
  • But I also know for a fact that the bookmarks were saved as part of a profile because I used the profile sync feature to auto-port all my bookmarks when I first got this Macbook a year and a bit ago.
  • The folders where bookmark backup info is stored locally are empty... Clearly, it wasn't stored in my icloud documents (that's on me for not double-checking)
  • I checked my other device (mobile phone) to see if I had firefox downloaded and was signed into the same account as the original, with the bookmarks still visible. Of course I didn't. I only use Safari on my phone 😭

""Grasping at straws: the only other things I can think of""

  • Is there some way of linking my MAC address with my IP address and using those to triangulate the correct profile?
  • Because my computer got wiped and nothing is saved locally, my only hope is that my bookmarks are floating around the ether. If so, I just need to figure out how to find them.

Any and all help/suggestions are massively appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Lauren

tumblr is a site I use all day and recently firefox began not loading the pages, and the tabs - after selecting a piece or reblog. when you hit reblog the tab should open, but NAHHHHH. Firefox has been doing this for about a week or two at this point and I'm going to switch to another browser which never does this if there's no rememdy. why does it remind me 50 times a day to update the program if it's not working properly? why does it continue to ask me to update when there's no reason to update daily.

The weekly updates would work better because this daily update is not working. Its broken Firefox and at this point I'm looking for a fix - or I'm abandoning it for a more friendly browser

Please advise how to disable automatic updates on Firefox running on Linux Kubuntu. Solutions posted on mozilla.org do not work because stated disable options are not available(see screenshot). I have set app.auto.update to false in about:config but this does not disable updates. I have been repeatedly advised not to disable updates so I am aware of the so called risk. I am very tired of every update breaking a reliable browser and having to repair/fix/workaround each and every time. Please provide a viable solution.

Since a few days now my URL bar is too small. I can see where it used to be in light gray, but the text box is just a small part of it. I searched everywhere but I can not find anything to fix it. I even tried to reset the settings to default but it is still the same. Any idea what I can do?

Here is a screenshot of how it looks like when I click into the text box: (see attached)

I have Firefox on 2 computers. One is for my wife. On her computer Firefox defaults to all my settings, including passwords and logins. When she tries to log into her accounts, like CC and banking, everything defaults back to my settings.

How can I set up Firefox on her computer with only her settings?

This is so strange. Usually cookie selection is after you sign in not before...
