Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Hello! I Can´t com in on Super City.I get this message: Failed to connect: Potential security issue Firefox detected a problem and did not proceed to sc-fb-lb.playkot.com. The website is either incorrectly configured or your clock is set to the wrong time.

It's likely that the site's certificate has expired, which prevents Firefox from connecting securely. If you visit this website, attackers may try to steal information such as passwords, emails or credit card information. Best Regards Sig-Britt Larsson

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.

Whenever I type the word 'google' for any reason, even when composing an email, Firefox automatically opens up a new tab. Google is my home page so the new tab that opens shows the google main search page. What I have to do is type goo gle and then insert the cursor before the 'gle' part and back space. How do I stop this, please?

How can I change back to version 91.0.2 from this last update. I do not like the way that favorite tabs are presented, too much space between, not helpful. I like to be able to look at my entire saved entries, not scrolling thru because they are so far apart.

firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher

I have recently, last 60 to 90 days, keep getting 3 (three) search engines (in the attached image) that I cannot remove. I can remove them locally for the instance that FireFox is active, however, when I close FireFox and open FireFox again, go into settings/search/search shortcuts/search engines - review the search engine window there they are again.

Yahoo by template search Freshy search Sponsored search by quickforms

In reading on possible issues within FireFox, it suggests that an add-on may have introduced those to my computer and I was not able to locate any add-ons with any of the words from those 3 names above. Can you advise on a process to remove those 3 search engines permanently?

I thought of uninstalling FireFox and reinstalling, my question is would all my Bookmarks and cached passwords get deleted with the uninstall?

Thanks for looking into this for me.

I have a problem with Firefox on my desktop. I was accessing some information from a Canadian government website when a new search responded with an Access Denied message, I repeated this with other government of Canada websites with the same result, the content of those messages are as follows: First CRA Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency.html" on this server. Reference #18.cc58d617.1634682762.4c16e09 Next Service Canada You don't have permission to access "http://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/corporate/portfolio/service-canada.html" on this server. Reference #18.cc58d617.1634681151.4aae992 Finally the main Government of Canada webpage You don't have permission to access "http://www.canada.ca/en.html" on this server. Reference #18.cc58d617.1634683027.4c6baf5 I then successfully accessed a number of other pages and it appears that I am denied access only to the Canadian government server. I was able to successfully access the same Canadian government information from 2 laptops. Next I installed Microsoft Edge on the same desktop and had full access to everything. Problem appears to be Firefox - Action: 1. Uninstalled Firefox using Revo Uninstaller Pro, this program is supposed to remove all evidence of the uninstalled program. 2. Restarted computer. 3. Downloaded and ran the current Firefox Installer program. 4. Despite my uninstall actions the Firefox installer detected previous installation and completed a fresh installation back to where we started. Obviously the problem is with Firefox installed on this desktop, How can I solve the issue? There apparently must be some contaminated file(s) remaining 2 possibilities, Revo's deletion is still in the Recycle bin and I now note that there is an "Old Firefox Data" folder with the Desktop files. How can I completely remove all traces of Firefox from this computer so that we can make a fresh start? I wish to keep using Firefox.

What's the story with Firefox being so madly in love with iTunes, the moment I open Firefox, iTunes opens. Worse even. I can't close iTunes. It keeps opening up until I close Firefox.

Is this some kind of another MANDATE now? Part of the NWO? You MUST accept iTunes to jump into your face if you use Firefox?

Makes me dump this piece of intrusive waste for good, really. I am so sick and tired of this Tech-Tyranny ruling our brains, telling us what we MUST WANT and accept.
