Hi Just recently my Firefox Browser has decided to Bookmark a page with just "one click" on "bookmark this page. I need to restore the old behaviour, where I could edit what the bookmark said & in what sub-folder to place it. I do not like the new behaviour & I did not choose it. Please how can I get the original & better behaviour restored??? Thanks

Hi. If I am browsing images on bing or google and scroll down the page, I click on an image then the page jumps back to the top. I then have to scroll down and find the image again. Does this regularly, say every 6 images I click on. I've refreshed firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled it and finally used Geek uninstall to clear the registry before I install it again with no success.

I'm using windows 10 and use Malwarebytes to clean up anything I may have picked up. Avast antivirus running. I have a suspicion it might be a windows problem as it's fairly recent, maybe a month or a bit longer. I've searched for answers but nothing really matches it. Any ideas? Apologies if I've missed the obvious, could well be a senior moment! Thank you.

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

After the latest Firefox update my Bixolon printer no longer prints receipts out of our Lightspeed POS system. It will print receipts if I am using Chrome or MS Edge so it is a Firefox problem. I tried the about:config, print_printer delete and still have the problem. If I go into Control Panel and do a test print it prints fine. This is a Firefox problem and I need a fix that works!

I have had Firefox for years on my IOS devices as well as my Mac OS lap tops. I replaced my10 year old macbook lap top in June and put on Firefox and now everytime I sign in I have to get a code sent to another e-mail address that is not on my lap top to put the code in on my lap top so I can continue to sign into Firefox. Why is this happening? This is beginning to be too much trouble to get on. Why is this necessary since having my new macbook laptop? I dont always have my Ipad or Iphone near me when I sign on to Firefox. This is also on my IOS devices. I have several e-mail and use Icloud email system just for that on lap top. Have gmail app seperate on desk top and aol on IOS devices or sign in from webmail.

Is there a pocket-free build of firefox available for download? Before you say, you can just disable it, I already have. In addition to that I've blocked the update/api url as well. I want it removed completely, I strong feel mozilla should make it opt-in or provide a pocket free build.

I was thinking perhaps there is a regulatory constraint on of the builds here that I could install, then change back to english?

Any help would be appreciated.

I want to download/update to Firefox v.80.01 for Windows 64-bit, but every time I try to download anything at all, Firefox pushes 81.0 on me (just released today), which I do NOT want. I'm running the latest "Extended Support" release (79.0 64-bit). I'm 80 and do NOT want to test software. Do I have to keep running v.79 if I don't want v.81, or can I download the version I want?

How can I get Firefox v.80.01?

Thanx, Anne F.
