BE NICE? Are you kidding me? I have asked for help on this issue NUMEROUS times and NO ONE has ever responded to this problem. I'm Past Being Nice!

DO YOU SEE THE INFORMATION ATTACHED? It is WRONG and has been WRONG for months and months, but no one wants to address the issue. Most of you simply IGNORE this information and I'm guessing you don't know how to correct it.

First of all, I DO NOT have Windows 8, I've never had Windows 8 or any derivation of Windows 8 on this PC or any other ELECTRONIC device I have now or in the past, EVER! One day I turned on my PC checked for updates and to my HORROR this is what I found.

The latest information you have assigned to me is THUNDERBIRD, DON'T know what it is or why I have it listed as something I use, I Don't.

WHAT version are we on anyway????????????

Firefox is the WORST browser I have EVER used. Whenever I have a problem you respond with some ridiculous IT jargon and I'm supposed to fix it and there are so many problems I can't even begin to count them. YOU EXPECT EVERYONE to know how to program, understand programming jargon, and simply fix YOUR problems. What you need is a SUPPORT phone number for those of us who are not as SMART as you. Yeah, yeah I know your all volunteers, MAYBE it's time you hired people who know what they are doing and can speak to people in a language that is UNDERSTANDABLE to most of us in the REAL WORLD!!!!!!

Fix this problem. I want it fixed, not by ME by YOU folks at Firefox before I transfer all of my files to my new PC.

OH, I know EXACTLY what your response is going to be; You're going to waste my time with a million questions that have NOTHING to do with anything, then you'll want me to try this or that or the other thing while you CROSS YOUR FINGERS and hope that I can fix it! DO NOT DO THAT, or you will simply IGNORE my question which is what MOST EVERYONE in your organization does. REALLY, they simply pretend I haven't asked this question.

GET with the program and figure out HOW TO SERVE regular everyday people who use your product. I've read too many articles about problems that you continue to have without resolution, and the numbers of people leaving FIREFOX.

I WOULD HAVE to say, YOU HAVE A PROBLEM! I don't care if you use volunteers or not, what I care about is communication that makes sense to me, NOT to you. When I read your articles that are supposed to CLEAR up the issue and then you name those volunteers who wrote the article, am I impressed? Only in the sense of the stupidity of your idea of HELP!

STOP WITH YOUR educated guesses about my BROWSER, this is just another way of AVOIDANCE FOR YOU! If NO ONE in your organization will even address this issue you couldn't possibly know ANYTHING!

Most Sincerely, Rhonda Caywood

I am using Firefox 108.0.2(32bit) on a Windows 7 computer. Within the last three weeks two sites Menards.com & aarp.org have become blocked by security rules: Menards by Incapsula & AARP by Imperva. All other websites I currently visit work fine as did these before. I've cleared cache and cookies and "forget these websites" in history. This solves the problem for the first page on Menards.com but any link-click and the problem returns. This also cleared the AARP website but I cannot log in to my account there nor access some of the other clickable links. I can access these websites fine on other computers on this network using Firefox. This computer will access those two sites using the portable chrome browser but not the installed Tor browser. This computer will not access these sites using a VPN or with AVG disabled. I've toggled a few DNS and HTTP settings with no effects. For a year, the only thing I noticed different from this computers and the others is that this one continues to allow Java to be updated whereas the others are unable to download its update. Could that be the problem? Why these are the only two websites that seem to be affected is the baffling part. Menards has thanked me but has not gotten back and AARP wants me to reinstall my operating system. Thanks for any help you may suggest.

Hello,

I have activated Firefox Sync and "delete cookies on close" and I have noticed that the URLs I have set up exceptions for do not sync across my devices, thus having to re-enter them on every device.

Is this by design or can I do something about it?

I can't for the life of me understand what is going on with my browser. Everytime I try to watch a video that I have purchased I get this error message:

"Firefox is installing components needed to play the audio or video on this page. Please try again later."

I have tried searching for a solution but no avail. I have disabled and re-enabled DRM, bit it was a no go. I tried re-downloading firefox, still had the same issue. I created a new profile, still won't work! I have been searching for solutions constantly and tried so many but none seem to work. Finally someone suggested that I check my extensions and App data and I saw a sign that said:

"widevine decryption module provided by google inc. will be installed shortly"

but it has been almost a day and it still hasn't been installed. In advanced preferences I looked up widevine and saw this:

media.gmp-widevinecdm.autoupdate true media.gmp-widevinecdm.enabled true media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastDownloadFailReason Error: Failed downloading via ServiceRequest, status: 0, reason: error media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastDownloadFailed 1671609470 media.gmp-widevinecdm.lastInstallStart 1671609449 media.gmp-widevinecdm.visible true

Is the problem with my computer or internet?

In YouTube have some videos, which name seems not correct.

In Firefox settings -> allow sites use their own fonts = enabled uBlock Origin -> no-remote-fonts = disabled gfx.down -> gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled = true/false (doesn't matter, nothing changes) Stylus -> enabled/disabled (doesn't matter, nothing changes) To Google Translate -> enabled/disabled (doesn't matter, nothing changes)

With Alt -> Page Style -> Without style hieroglyphs still don't show correct

I am making a web page (in Dreamweaver) for a meeting and I have certain things in bold. In Firefox, the bold (<b></b>) does not show. Bold shows up on my pages on Chrome and on Microsoft edge. I've also tried the <strong> tag, but that doesn't work either. The font family for the pages is sans-serf. I really need this to show on most browsers.

Is there any way I can completely disable horizontal scrolling? I'm using a laptop with a trackpoint (lenovo x230, Windows 10) and it's not terribly accurate, which means scrolling whilst a youtube video is going often makes it track backwards or forwards, and another website I use uses a horizontal click to send me to the next page, which sucks. I would prefer to just be able to disable it entirely. Thanks!

I swear to god I used to have it disabled, just need to work out how again.
