Hi. I have my preferred language in Firefox set to Canadian English and do not have any other languages installed. For some reason, some web page forms will display field labels in Chinese as you can see on my screenshot. I have no idea why this is happening. Also, I have Tencent Meeting and WeChat installed on my computer as I am an only teacher teaching Chinese High School Students. Could it be that one of these apps is messing with Firefox? Can anyone offer any suggestions to remedy this situation?

Thanks.

I have been using Firefox (my primary browser) with Express VPN for two years. Lately Firefox will not download a home page if the VPN is connected. If I disconnect the VPN, Firefox will load, but at a very slow rate (close to a minute). I have tried starting Firefox with extensions disabled which had no effect. I have also communicated with Express VPN and have submitted diagnostic data to them. They state that since Chrome and Edge works fine with Express VPN, that the issue is with Firefox. I have used Firefox for quite a while and like the platform . . . but I must use a VPN and if the choice has to be made, I will become an Edge or Chrome user. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Shortly after I allowed Mozilla VPN to upgrade, about 2 weeks ago, Firefox started crashing when I closed it down. I can not say that the VPN causes it because Firefox will crash without the VPN being active. I am running Firefix 87.0 - Win 10 Pro 64 bit - Version 1909 - OS Build 18363.1440 Gigabyte Aorus Z390 UD - Core i5-9400F - 16GB memory

The crashes do not affect my computer - just a nuisance. Regards, Mike Holman Midlothian, Texas

Thanks to terrible, productivity-sucking changes in the basic functions of the FF browser, I have started using other browsers. First - FF updates far too frequently - almost daily. No option to block update notifications. Never know if it's something trivial, an important security fix, or a major interface change. The 'what's new' page is always incomplete. 2nd - FF downloads software surreptiously through the sneaky "normandy" back door and inserts feature changes irregardlessly. Doesn't matter if you explicitly selected NO to enrolling in studies. Users can't get a straight answer on how to disable Normandy. Named after the Allied stealth invasion of Europe, it does the same thing to our computers. 3rd- FF caters to fringe techie desires with an onslaught of unwanted or unsuable additions that bloats the software, uses up CPU, or inserts intrusive attention-seeking diversions. I am forced to spend too much time after each update to investigate how to shut off unwanted surprises as well as unannounced alterations to my option settings. For example, if I press the mute button on my keyboard a very large media window pops up and takes over a sizeable chunk of my computer screen. It cannot be resized. It has no close button. Took hours to find out how to disable this. 4th-FF developers seem to expect users to have the newest computer equipment, huge display screens, and lot's of extra memory. If not, too bad. 5th - the recent puzzling, arrogant changes to the basic print function is evidence of that mindset. FF developers say they aren't going to let users revert to the normal "classic" small foot-print pulldown menu on the left side of the screen to preview, set up headers, etc. Too bad if the open window is too narrow to view this new intrusive, real estate consuming right hand display. Too bad that you can no longer simply seamlessly interact and accomplish the task. Too bad that the FF developers think they know better than you that you should change the way you work. 6th Reader view is an obscure feature. I do not want to be forced to use it. I do my best to strip out or ignore the overwhelming number of pictographs competing for my attention, 7th - I can no longer see URLs in the address bar. You've truncated them. I am forced to cut and paste them into a text editor to see them in their entirety. 8th - Firefox hangs video streaming sites like peacocktv.com. Windows Taskmanager shows that FF forces CPU and hard drive usage to 100%. 9th -There is no mechanism to escape, break, or interrupt FF's failed video stream. How sad that Microsoft's obnoxious Edge browser is better at video streaming. It uses far less system resources on the same video streaming site. AND doesn't hang the OS. It's likely FF's new unwanted capability to launch multiple picture in pictures - which I don't use - hogs resources. 10th- How about beta testing using 'normal' non-super techie /gamer users? 11th -FF disabled user Feedback. I stopped updating Firefox. Not trustworthy.

I mistakenly deleted my firefox browser, I am running Mac OS 10.7.5 with a SSD on a Mac Pro desktop. I have been unable to download a new firefox browser because of the OS and hardware limitations.

The latest version 84.0.1 for Mac now opens a new print menu, which is terrible. How do I force it to go away and permanently default to "print using the system dialog", which "Firefox help" never heard of. I can't find any way to get rid of it. It is a hateful change to Firefox, I hate it and my sister is in tears. She hates computers anyway. Seniors can't handle these dramatic changes.

Recently I added a Meta Mask extension on Fire Fox. Invested a few hundred dollars in a crypto. Then today I reset my Fire Fox password. Now the Meta mask sidebar icon gone. Trying to logon to Meta Mask, my Meta Mask password was invalid. Tried to get a new one but message was they had no account with that email address.

I have the restore list. Can that be used? If so how? Is there another way tor restore?

I imagine you have my email address, but just to be sure: moicheozick@hotmail.com

I am not able to play youtube livestream videos (including the videos that were streamed earlier). I am using Ubuntu 20.04.2 and firefox 87.0 (64-bit). I tried disabling all the extensions; but no luck. I am facing the same issue with BlueJeans also. Youtube displays - "Your browser can't play this video."

There is a lot to love about Firefox. However, it has perhaps THE worse history searching tools of any browser. You cannot search by date, just "Last 7 Days" or whole months. Even then you cannot see on which date the search was performed: stupid and inexcusable.

Firefox Developer Edition On Ubuntu - Update Hassles

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.

When I check Task Manager, there are 7 or more Firefox programs running... the other day there were 15! So today I rebooted (Firefox causes crashes and lock-up all the time) and then opened Tack Manager and then ONLY one program (besides all the programs running in the background) and the image shows you what I got! Why the hell is Firefox opening all these program clones of itself? These are NOT onscreen, but they are always in Task Manager. NOTE: The only open window shows only one tab. Now, if I close Firefox all those lines disappear. But when I reopen it, the number goes up! every time. What the heck???? I've been a supporter, used Firefox for 10+ years but may have to go to the dreaded Chrome is this continues. I can't reboot my computer every day because of Firefox - sometimes twice.
