I have noticed recently that every week or so my Firefox browser will randomly change my homepage directory to the landing page / search for MSN, which is baffling, since it is obtrusive and anti-Mozilla to me.

If y'all are sneaking it in for that sweet ad revenue, I understand, but I would donate to avoid this issue.

Otherwise Firefox / Thunderbird are awesome, and I appreciate all that you do!

Cheers, Elliot

Why is it every time I open Firefox I get the warning "Do you want to allow the following program to make changes to this computer?"

This just started yesterday and I had not made any changes. Firefox is up to date.

When Firefox is restarted after updates, or when starting from powered down, or when hitting the home button on the tool bar, I still get multiple tabs opened - none of which are relevant or links which I desire. Seems I've tried everything I can to get this to stop. How do i adjust things so that I just open Firefox without a whole bunch of ancient links that I have to manually close every time? Thank You.

Hello,

How do I disable or remove these autofill searches that I do not use that appear at the very top. They keep appearing such as searching up gamestop it goes to gamefaq first or searching maps to get google maps, it gives my local city website map instead.

These have become a nuisance as I never visit these sites.

Thanks!

Firefox blocks Mac keyboard text replacements. Textfast worked til a week ago, but now it does not. I type "qq1" into a document on the mac, hit enter, then a phrase is automatically typed or inserted. I type "qq3" another phrase is inserted. I have about 12 keyboard replacements. Be nice if Firefox would support this?

Hi, I am using the most recent firefox on windows 10. A few months ago with an update that occurred at the time, firefox suddenly switched to some sort of dark mode - ie all text was white with black background. I found others online with the same issue and with their help was able to change the main view back, however all the menu's and any popup dialogue options are still in this mode. I have attached a screen shot.

'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

I have two Macs with Firefox, A and B. I don't understand the sync. I have different bookmarks on firefox in computer A and computer B. I want to transfer the bookmarks from A to B, not vice versa. What is the process and sequence of signing in/syncing so that the bookmarks go from A to B and not from B to A? Thank you for your help.
