I am willing to consider paying for Better Web with Scroll, but while Firefox says that it has partnered with "dozens" of organizations, it does not list most of them. I do not use any of the services it does list, so my subscription would not go to any organizations at all if this is a comprehensive list. Is there any list of all the organizations it has partnered with? Will this list be available on an ongoing basis to ensure transparency? Will organizations be able to sign up freely?

This is really just a paid version of Brave, and Better Web would need to demonstrate that it has distinct advantages over that browser to make it truly worthwhile. So far, they have not done a great job of demonstrating that they have those advantages. I am ready to be convinced, because I trust and respect Mozilla, but have not been yet.

For quite some time now I have to notice that Firefox keeps forgetting the addresses of websites that I have allowed to open pop-ups. I used such a pop-up site just yesterday, the computer has in hibernation over night - and now Firefox blocked opening such a pop-up again, the list of allowed sites is empty.

I received a Firefox notice that an upgrade was available, so I clicked "not now" and triggered the update by Menu > Help > About. Firefox apparently downloaded its update, then asked me to restart Firefox. I did so and got a "ransomware" notice from my antivirus program, saying it fixed the problem (but not how). Trying to run Firefox repeats the notice. Does Firefox now have malware in it?

A Web search turns up nothing. I am posting this question from Google Chrome.

I am having a problem with creating a "workable" desktop shortcut for the Walmart grocery website. (I do not have problems with any other shortcuts I have created, only the Walmart website shortcut). The problem only began recently, as I have had a shortcut on my desktop for Walmart for months now. When the website locked up on me one day I deleted the original shortcut I had at that time, and I have tried many times since to create another one, but none will work. I am able to click and drag, from the Walmart website, to the desktop, to create the shortcut, however when I click on the shortcut to open it I only get a blank page. This is ONLY with the Walmart shortcut I create. What's going on, and why is this happening! It's infuriating!

Greetings forum -

I have Firefox on automatic update. Last night Firefox auto updated to version 78.0.1 and this update added pre-installed bookmarks suggestions that appear when I click the command line.

These pre-installed bookmarks suggestions are offensive trash like: facebook, twitter, reddit, etc.

I have searched the help section. I have scoured the customize pull down menus. I have looked through the bookmark editor ... and found no clear method of removing these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions.

There MUST be a way to do so. I CAN NOT see facebook, twitter, and reddit in my bookmarks every time I click on the command line.

Does anyone know of a method to remove these pre-installed bookmarks suggestions?

Thanks in advance for your time and knowledge.

Hi,

I've tried to fix this by following the relevant knowledge base articles, but nothing I've tried so far seems to have worked.

Since this morning, Firefox has failed to load in certain pages. There's no error message, FF briefly flashes the Stop button and then displays a totally blank page. I checked on Chrome, and it had no problem loading the page.

On pages that do load, ublock origin doesn't seem to be blocking any ads. I assume these problems are related, so I include this for completeness.

I've tried

  1. Restarting firefox in safe mode
  2. Restarting my PC
  3. Clearing firefox cookies and cache
  4. Restarting my router
  5. Flushing my DNS

What should I try next? Is there any additional info I need to provide?

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.

Since one of the recent FireFox updates, the default action in the URL bar for "unknown" domains is always a search. As a web developer, this is extremely aggravating, since I can no longer type "foo.local" into the URL bar and confirm, in order to access http://foo.local/ (see also attached image). It will instead execute a search for "foo.local".

I have looked through the options of browser.urlbar in about:config, but so far I couldn't identify if any of these options would influence this new behaviour.
