I have been using FVD Speed dial for several years. A couple weeks ago, I upgraded my EverHelper/Nimbus web account to paid so that I could sync and keep all my bookmarks since I lost them when my laptop crashed two weeks ago.

Today, I get a message from Firefox that FVD Speedial has been permanently disabled. I need my Speed dials back, and I need refund from somebody if I can't use the add-on anymore. It would be nice if Firefox would notify users ahead of time before unceremoniously blocking something as critical as this. I need to be able to access my speed dials so I can at least import them to some other app/add-on if necessary. I'd also like to know how to contact Nimbus if I need a refund.

For some reason when I upload a file as a Yahoo mail email attachment either Yahoo Mail or Firefox does not open the directory I last used to upload a file. Instead it seems to have got stuck on some arbitrary directory. This is SO annoying as I generally have multiple files to upload usually from the same directory, which means, now, that each time I have change from that arbitrary directory to the directory I want to upload from. How can I get Yahoo Mail/Firefox to behave as it always has? Which was, that when I uploaded a file as a Yahoo mail email attachment, it opened the directory folder I last used to upload from.

My icon for Read Aloud has disappeared. I went to the add-ons and then to Read Aloud web site and removed it and then added it to Firefox. It goes through the process and when all done it does not show up in the bar at the top of the screen to click on. I don't know how to find it or where to look for it. I use this extension a great deal. Help me to find it and make it visible.

My firefox suddenly and without warning blocked my start page, the FVD speed-dial addon. I honestly do not care why it did, but how do I get my pages back? I mean I would have appreciated a warning so I can save my pages and links, FFS! And speed-dial also synchronizes these pages across my laptops and mobile, so I lost everything everywhere, because Firefox is an ass??? How do I get the addon back along with my pages and links?

And sure, I don't have to use Firefox if it behaves likes this, blocking my addons without a warning first!

Damn.

The Start Page add-on that I was using blocked with the following message. Because the add-on blocked without warning I can't access website links that I bookmarked within said add-on. I understand it was due to security reasons, but that doesn't recover my lost links.

"Speed Dial [FVD] New Tab Page, 3D Start Page, Sync has been blocked for your protection. Why was it blocked?

This add-on violates Mozilla's Add-on Policies.

This add-on violates Mozilla's policies as search functionality provided or loaded by the add-on must not collect search terms or intercept searches that are going to a third-party search provider. The add-on has repeatedly violated these terms despite Mozilla explicitly pointing them out. What does this mean?

The problematic add-on or plugin will be automatically disabled and no longer usable.

When Mozilla becomes aware of add-ons, plugins, or other third-party software that seriously compromises Firefox security, stability, or performance and meets certain criteria, the software may be blocked from general use. For more information, please read this support article.

Versions blocked: all versions. Blocked on Nov 23, 2021."

Hi,

Yesterday Google just disappeared from the available search engines, I did not make any changes to the system as far as I'm aware of. I tried a complete reinstall of firefox (by apt purge and rm -rf ~/.mozilla and then reinstalled using apt) and also followed the instructions in this thread, which did not work for me: [https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questi.../1264497]

Thanks in advance!

For a long time I have not had the spell checker working on Firefox.

For example, in this text box as I type now, I have no spelling correction. If I right click I have no option to check spelling.

In settings - language, I have check spellings as you type ticked. In Add-ons, Manague Your language I have English (GB) Language pack installed

I have read everything I can, yet still can't get spellings enabled.

I can run the portable app version of firefox and spellings work for that, and a right click in a similar box to this gives me spelling options, so I know what it should look like.

I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks

I really need a good option for my FVD speed dial. After using it for years it has suddenly been deemed as dangerous. After using it for years, I never had a problem with it being "dangerous". But anyway, I really need a good alternative but the one Firefox recommended is no good. It has a list of options you can pick from but they all say they are not monitoring these speed dials. I wonder if any of those are dangerous.

I don't really have a question. I have looked on the Mozilla site for a place to email the developers. I'm not happy with the new version of Firefox (attached) I have to go into History and restore tabs every time I restart my computer, I like to have many tabs continuously open so this doesn't suit me at all. Also the new search function at the top of the screen in the typical URL box is not nice, I preferred when the search was in a box in the middle of the screen and suggestions popped up when you start typing a search. Suggestions don't pop up in the new Firefox version.

I really enjoy Firefox and have been using it many years, I just wanted to share my opinions of the new version.
