I get it Mozilla, you want us to update Firefox. But it's my computer and I want to choose when to do it. Stop with the multiple notifications and bring back the ability to turn them off.

Anyone know of a hack that will turn these off? Other threads on the subject have been turned off, with no real solution. Thank you.

Dear Mozilla team,

Recently i installed a Mozilla browser on a new device. I log in to my account but nothing is getting synced. I have over 500 bookmarks and several add-ons and those are information that are of utter importance to me. They contain half of my work and research.

Please provide me assistance with this case.

Warmest regards, Kenan

Once again, without any warning, Firefox demanded I power-cycle itself because it, *without any permission*, installed an update "in the background". Firefox refuses to carry out any further action until I comply with its demands.

Let me be very clear: forced auto-updates are **100% EVIL**. I own, and am ultimately responsible for, this computer. Me. Not you. Me.

Download the update, fine. Notify me about it, present to me what the changes are coming, sure.

But under absolutely NO CIRCUMSTANCES is Firefox, or any other program for that matter, to modify itself or any other element of this computer without my positive consent.

Thanks a bunch!

The main "Firefox" menu is in Japanese, but all the rest of the menus (File, Edit, View, History, etc.) are in English.

How can I change the "Firefox" menu's language back to English? I've already tried it in settings.

I am unable to attach screenshots for an unknown reason so will instead link them here:

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

They block traffic as if they are high and mighty! I have used Firefox for years and have noticed them getting more and more "big shot"! They are NEVER satisfied. When something is working, they have to screw it up. That is a non-profit organization for you. I have not contacted them because when you argue with morons, they drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

Anybody know of another good browser besides Internet Ex-srewup?

THANKS

I understand that Firefox has removed Dissenter as a plug in.

Why would this be blocked?

I think that it is wonderful to be able to discuss websites and posts, specially when most news outlets disable comments and one isnt able to discuss what has been said. Particularly when what has been said is dubious or questionable.

I love Firefox and have been donating each month to support this awesome platform for quite some time now, however, I am keen to get an answer to my question in order to reassure my loyalty.

Adblock plus is not working anymore and my virus software is not allowed to keep me safe while using your browser.

Who da fuck thought that this new safety "feature" was a good idea? what bunch of muppets was sitting in the meeting thinking to themselfs "oh well... most of our users add-ons wont work anymore, but without actually giving them replacement options and a manual disable feature we will really keep them engaged in fun and relaxing search on the web for new ones.

this was the very best browser by a longshot for me for a long time because it did not present me with any feature that i could not turn off. now it seems the development goes to chrome and google and facebook style so i cant control all the feature anymore... if this keeps up i will sadly need to switch my browser and i am pretty sure others are thinking the same.

best regards in hopes that this safety feature will be gone soon

My Firefox updated to 67.0.1 and now when I type anything into the search bar the results then show up in the address bar. I do not want this. I used to have all the websites that I normally visit typed in and basically saved to the address bar so I could use it quickly to pull up my favorite sites. When did someone come up with this stupid idea to do this. I wish that companies like you would stop changing things thinking that is what people want. I want my Firefox to be the way it always was. If there is no way to change this then I am going to quit using Firefox and I will try something else. PLEASE FIX

Hey guys,

We are creating a HTML file from scratch of URL's needing to be imported as bookmarks into Firefox. The file is generated by Microsoft Excel, which means it has lots of fun unnecessary code in the HTML file.

The Firefox Help is full of How To's from other browsers, however, we were not able find any details about syntax when one creates a HTML file outside of other browsers.

Is there any specific format or syntax the HTML file should be setup in in order to successfully import them into Firefox Bookmarks?

Thanks for your help.

This morning Adblock Plus was disabled in my browser.

the message n the EXTENSIONS PAGE reads: "Adblock Plus - free ad blocker could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled".

I've been Adblock PLus using for years, on both my computers. And it still functions on my Windows 10 desktop. Is this because it is Windows XP? Can I do anything to reacivate it?

I tried to add Adblock Plus again on the computer - but that did not work either. I get a message that says: "Download failed. Please check your connection' - but I am using the connection without problems everywhere else!
