After the 90.0.2 update, the bookmarks menu no longer scrolls with the center wheel of my mouse. The center wheel scrolls properly in my emails, on webpages, everywhere else but the in the bookmarks. I have to use the up or down arrows to scroll through them, and it's a royal pain because I have so many bookmarks.

I am looking for the last version of Firefox that allows plugins. I have several older Foscam IP cameras and they work best with the browser plugin. However, Firefox doesn't allow this anymore and I really don't like any of the viewer clients. What I would like to do is download a portable version and possibly run it in a virtual machine so I can still use the latest version on the same machine. But this would allow me to use the old plugins and view my cameras.

Any ideas? Many thanks! Randall

I use Bitdefender and continue to get this "Critical Warnings" message. I have brought this up to Bitdefender and obviously their reply is Firefox issue. I have no idea how to get Mozella to fix their "expired" certificates.

How can I permanently force firefox's automatic updates to be turned off? Which guy modified the original design for the new version of Firefox bookmarks? Is there something wrong with that man's brain? Is the spacing of the new bookmark item too large to read? It's very uncomfortable.

Hello, when I recently updated I was offered a choice of UI themes, including "System theme" which states: "Follow the operating system setting for buttons, menus, and windows." My question is, will this "System theme" option be removed in a future release?

As a visually-impaired user I use a high contrast theme with custom button sizes etc,in Windows, and so was greatly worried by talk of a new Firefox theme that uses its own UI / colour-scheme which might not meet my needs. So when updating I was delighted to see the above option. I chose it and FF continues to use my needed system colours etc. Phew, I thought, crisis averted.

But I am now panicking again at other things I have since read, about certain UI options gbeing disabled eventually. I am unclear as to whether it is the ability to disable specific elements within the new UI theme for those that use it that is under threat, or whether it is the ability to choose the alternative "System theme" that is under threat? Thanks.

After years of use, my PaneraBread.com account sign in page no longer works with Firefox. What has changed? Panera's IT folks spent a lot of time with me but nothing worked. They finally suggested using a different browser. MS Edge works with the same account ID and password. Why? Is there a workaround for Firefox? I am using a HP desktop and Windows 10 with all the updates.

For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

Hello,

every single time I wake up my Windows 7 Firefox refuses to load any website. It is a Firefox defect, because Windows's Internet icon shows that Internet is available. DNS is also working, while Firefox refuses to load a web. I need to wait 10-15 seconds until Firefox condescendingly loads the web I am trying to access. This bug is very annoying as it happens a few times each day :(

Using OS authentication (e.g., TouchID) for Credit Cards and Logins

Apologies for re-posting, I asked about this issue before https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1323826, but it was archived without any response :(

In an answer to this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1318109#answer-1376159 cor-el warned that using OS authentication (for example, TouchID on a Mac) for passwords instead of a Primary Password is actually not really safe because it doesn't encrypt logins in logins.json and it would be possible to extract them by running: prompt("Logins",JSON.stringify(Services.logins.getAllLogins())); Now I am a bit confused because for storing Credit Cards the default is, of course, using OS authentication (I don't think there's an option to set a password instead). So I am wondering, is that safe, i.e., is the credit card information encrypted that I can retrieve with my TouchID (even without a Primary Password)?

And if so, would anybody be able to explain the differences between these two approaches and why the Firefox developers chose one for Logins/Passwords but the other for Credit Cards.

I'm on Windows 10.

I have told my FF to open *.diff files in my preferred text editor (which supports syntax highlighting). Now it seems that if a webserver serves this file as "content-type text/plain", FF will download the file in a temp folder, add the .txt extension (on top of the .diff extension the file has), then invokes the preferred application to open that file.

E.g. https://gitlab.com/freepascal.org/lazarus/lazarus/uploads/ccec59aabbef6cbe00df39bfd57f565a/checkbox.diff is downloaded to my system as C:\users\username\AppData\Local\Temp\checkbox.diff.txt and then this filename will be passed as a paramater to my editor.

In contrast, when I download the file (choose "save file" from the dialog) and then from the "downloads menu" choose "open", the file will be downloaded without FF altering the file extension, and will open as expected.

How can I persuade FF to NOT append a .txt to that file when I ask to open it in my preferred application?

Notice that on Linux Mint 18.0, FF does NOT append a .txt to the file in the example above and opens it in Kate (my default editor there) as simply path/to/checkbox.diff
