I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

I'm running Firefox 85 on Mac OS Catalina.

When I open dev tools on the Network tab, the default view of the "details" panel is not very useful: it's stuck at the 40px height at the bottom.

So I drag it to be half screen height in order to be able to see the panel contents.

The problem is, when I restart the browser and open the dev tools again at the Network tab, my changes haven't been preserved, and the "details" panel is again at the useless 40px height.

How can I make Firefox to remember the layout of panels in the dev tools?

Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

The former versions of Reader View looked pretty much like normal documents - without all the superfluous clutter that an original webpage article might contain. So, it could easily be printed OR copy/pasted into a new Word document, and then printed. However, in the new Reader View (v. 87 - 88), most of the photographs are retained. In fact, they are often duplicated, i.e., instead of having one head shot of the subject of an article, there will be TWO identical ones - along with many of the other original photos (also duplicated). So, we now have a Reader View that contains twice the number of photos than the original webpage article did!!

The consequence? I have to "copy" blocks of text; paste them into a document; return to the webpage; dodge the photo(s); and go to the text for another copy/paste cycle. Spin, Repeat, etc. This is SO tedious, especially when the previous Reader View retained, at most, only one photo at the beginning, followed by nothing else but text. This allowed for fast and easy printing or saving. Alas, this is no longer possible (and I have expanded/modified Print Preview as much as possible and followed every other "temporary" tweak suggested in the Support Community!)

Lastly, on v. 88, I still cannot see the former "Simplify Page" (which, if memory serves, did not do as thorough a job of minimizing a webpage.) For what it's worth, is there any way the previous version of Reader View can be resurrected, preferably with NO photos, on a permanent basis?? Thanks very much.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I am using Windows 10 Pro version: 10.0.19042 Build 19042. I also updated my Thunderbird version to 78.9.1. On other computers with low version e.B: 10.0.19041 Build 19041 it works.

I have deposited Thunderbird as a standard program. Also for apps, etc. However, I always receive the following message.

I would ask for feedback here, as this is extremely slowing down the way things work.

Thank you

Can you tell me if it is possible to do this?  I would care a lot.

I have several tabs. Last I closed a bunch I was over 200, so it's a bit annoying when I start Firefox to do something, and randomly it'll start up the tab(s) of Facebook I have among the many.

It doesn't matter what tab I was on when I exited Firefox last, Facebook will be loaded without fail. I tried it several times with different sites, and I never exited with Firefox being the page I was on last.

Often my tab list on the top will be scrolled over (not by me, it happens when the Facebook tab loads) and I will have to scroll back to find the currently open page's tab. (The loaded page, whatever I was on last is on the screen, no problem with that.)

Anyway, I could list several reasons why this is a nuisance, but the thing is: I do not know why this is happening, it is disruptive, so I wish to understand the problem and stop it from happening.

This has persisted throughout several versions of Firefox, so I do not think it has to do with updates, but I do have the Facebook Container and F.B Purity addons.

Dear Mozilla community,

Before I wrote this question, I read a lot of posts but non of them provided answer to my problem, despite I saw some other having similar problem. Here is the problem. I'm using Firefox as browser. When using "outlook.office.com/mail/" (the email of my university) or "outlook.live.com/mail/" (my personal hotmail email), the spelling option and dictionary choices don't appear when I write click on the text field. The consequences are that the spelling check doesn't work. This problem appears only with outlook services. For example, in the text field I'm currently typing in while writing this message, the option does appear (as you can see in the second attached print screen), but when I do the same in outlook, this option don't appears anymore (as you can see in the first attached print screen). As you can see, the contextual options after right clicking on the text field are different and I don't understand why.

I have two dictionaries installed (French and English) and they work perfectly everywhere except in outlook. I read some Microsoft posts about that but what they explain is that the spelling check in outlook is all based on the browser options.

I'm not sure of when this problems append but I know the Firefox spelling check used to work before even in outlook. So I don't know if a update or something else created that but it's very bugging me and I might have to leave Firefox is I can't solve this problem.

If anyone who faced similar problems found a solution, I would be very glad to hear it! Thanks a lot
