Every time I shut down my computer I have to reset all my preferences and dowload adblock plus. The installer is still on my desktop and I can't remove it. I've put it in the apps file. This never happened before and I've been using firefox for at least 10 years. This just started happening with the new version of firefox. Please help as it's driving me crazy!

I am having a problem where Firefox functions normally, saves session history, saves log in information, etc, until something like a power outage happens where the computer is rebooted. The computer is a Mac desktop. I have gone into system preferences multiple times and selected the option to have Firefox restore session history, and when I simply close the Firefox browser, it does indeed save session history and all other data upon re-opening. However, when the computer is re-booted, Firefox then acts as though it has never been opened before, opening a totally virgin version of the browser. Why would it be wiped every time the computer is rebooted? This is a business computer and we need the log-ins to be saved for multiple different sites. Having to re-log-in and save info for each site we use after every time the computer is restarted is driving me mad.

I've had major stability issues since this update on my Mac (version 10.13.2). Tabs will become unresponsive and show the spinner icon and sometimes the whole browser become unresponsive. I've tried disabling add-ons, refresh, and even creating new profiles. Sometimes I see a process in activity monitor like Firefox Developer EditionCP Web Content or Firefox Developer EditionCP Privileged Content not responding and can force quit a single tab. Sometimes doing that crashes the browser.

I'd really prefer to keep this as my default browser, but it's not looking likely anymore.

Why doesn't Mozilla offer a Mozilla/Firefox based email address? I'm tired of google/gmail. Other options are just "OK". Would love to have an @firefox.com or @mozilla.com or @thunderbird.com email address. Maybe something clever like @foxmail.com, @mozmail.com, @thundermail.com, etc.

I'd like to make this suggestion to Mozilla, but couldn't really find a great support email to send it to.

Hi,

Is there a way of completely blocking Google and only allowing them to snoop on an ad-hoc basis? I would like to be prompted every time Google wants to sneak in with a yes/no.

I regularly purge cookies and notice Google are regularly setting cookies on my computer despite my not using Google or Youtube. I want total control over this company's intrusion into my privacy. I only use firefox/Duckduckgo when online.

Thank you

Michael

When logging in to my bank account and requesting an authentication code, my cursor used to automatically refocus and i would be able to start typing in the code in the appropriate box without looking back up at my to click on the box first. Now I find myself typing in the code several times before I realize I'm not typing anywhere at all. Does anyone know if this is a firefox update or an update my bank did with their website? anyone have any idea for a fix?

Hi, I am a web developer and use CSS Inspect a lot - hours usually, everyday usually. I have been using Chrome for this for a few years, and they changed the Inspector layout in a way that slowed my workflow down tremendously, so now I'm using Firefox more for that. I have a few questions...

  1. In the Computed tab of Inspector, is it possible for the field / value pairs to collapse into one line? In Chrome - (first time you've heard a sentence start like that, I'm sure) - if I resized the sections, at a certain point they would do this. That way I can see twice as much, and all that space isn't wasted after the attribute. Is this possible here? I can tweak anything I need to - just looking for where to go.

Attached is the way it looks now, and a little excerpt mockup I made showing what I am hoping to achieve.

  1. Secondly, is it possible to have the Layout and Computed tab consolidated into one tab? In Chrome, I used to love seeing the box model directly above the computed styles.

Thanks, Ben
