I want to get rid of the fugly blue star that suddenly appeared next to my bookmarked sites. I don't want to remove the bookmark itself, just the star. I have a vague memory I did it in the past, but I forgot how and now that I installed the new version, the fugly star is back.

I have been searching since the start of quantum for solution to two problems. 1, i don't like tabs. There is a damned function for this built into my OS. Thanks but i'll pass. 2, My machine, I choose when I update stuff, NOT you. Can't disable updates, can't get around the nagging door hanger. Firefox is just not fun or easy anymore. You've clearly decided that we don't deserve choice, and choice is LITERALLY the only reason anyone would go to a browser than can barely stay in the top 3. Why is it so important to mozilla for these things to persist?

Starting about 02/11/2020, links in emails take me to a blank page and FireFox stops working. Must close FireFox.

I have neither added nor updated any add-ons.

I disabled all add-ons with no change.

Under Performance, I unchecked " Use recommended performance settings" and 'Use hardware acceleration when available". No change.

The only way a link works is if I have (basic) FireFox already running.

I have reversed the above changes and await HELP.

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!

I have firefox 68.0.2 (the latest update)_ and it completely sucks. I was running Firefox on Windows and it was great. On linux it's a complete mess. Same machine. Youtube Videos stutter - not watchable. Basic functionality in Facebook is painful. It's like the 1990's all over. Can anyone help. Please don't suggest the absurd "Reset Firefox" function. Only for morons.

Latest version of FF 68.0 has re-enabled multiprocess and won't allow me to disable via about:config.

I've been with FF since pretty much the beginning, it's the only browser I recommend to friends, family or clients. Since 10e and the whole multiprocess roll out, I've "fixed" peoples slow and unresponsive FF experience by disabling this useless feature and H/W acceleration.

Now my mailbox is full of complaints about slow unresponsive browsing, plus it using more system resources leaving clients with less powerful machines with real problems.

C'mon Moz, we've been mates for decades, stood by you when everyone was looking at whatever MS was waiving at them, laughed at Google when they tried to play with the big boy, but now I'm feeling sheepish about my claims of Mozilla putting its users needs first, not forcing features on users, giving its users a choice enabling a freedom that you don't have with Edge or Chrome

Please give us back one of the remaining freedoms we have left, don't be MICROSOFT!

My Firefox updated to 67.0.1. Now when I type something into my search bar it shows up as results in the address bar. I DO NOT WANT THIS. I used to be able to have typed my favorite websites into the address bar and basically saved them there so I could just drop down and go to a specific site. Now that is gone and all these search results are there. I WANT MY FIREFOX BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS. I don't understand why your company thinks this is a good thing. If there is no way to change this problem them I am going to remove Firefox from my computer and go with a different web browser.

This add on seems worthless, and non functional. There is a video reference in the description BUT NO LINK PROVIDED!!!

Initially is sorta worked, forcing me to click "always open in default" when I had already assigned a container, now all I can do is edit containers. No longer able to open windows in separate containers.

Anyone know anything about this USELESS add on?

Hello,

officials confiscated my fast PC leaving me with a old system with following specs:

Intel Core i3-3220 (2 cores with 3,3 Ghz), Windows 10 latest version x64, 4 GB RAM, relativ new Samsung SSD, NVIDIA GT 1030 with drivers not updated in a while.

I have bad memory but I think I have this PC about 4 months and this Firefox problem since 2 months, could be totally different because I have really bad memory.

I thought it might be a extension or a setting so I started with a new profile, unfortunatelly it didn't help.

I think tab switching very often is over 3 seconds, doesn't matter much if there 5 or 15 tabs open, I use Firefox since 2002, recommended it to many people and never had such a big problem like this before.

Chrome works 'out of the box'. If you can't ensure that Firefox plays Youtube videos 'out of the box' then your user base will continue to decrease.

Stop the nagware. You are not my parent or my manager!

I have reasons for upgrading when and the way I do. Getting nagware several times a day is ludicrous. Getting it everyday is ludicrous.

The stated reason for removing the "don't update" option, which was used by most to remove the nagware, was to 'help' orphans or some such nonsense. If that was real you'd do it once a month maybe to make people aware. That is NOT what you are doing.

Your percentage of the market is deprecating because of nonsense like this. Also breaking all the wonderful extensions we used for years and years. You seem to have a habit of doing what you want, not what your user base wants. Have any of you ever worked for a commercial product? One that was successful?
