Congratulations! You have made both Firefox and Thunderbird unusable. With the latest Firefox screwed up update I can no longer get my bookmarks to show in a column on the left side of my screen. With Thunderbird I can no longer get my addressed to show when I try to send an email. Will you please unfuck your upgrades. I will now have to use another supplier. Guess I won't be sending any money to support mozilla.

I'm running Firefox 102.3.0esr. After the latest update, I can no longer get Word online (365, I think?) to open in the desktop app. I go to Edit, use in desktop app, accept the popup, and nothing happens. Excel opens in the app, as it always has. Both work in Chrome. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I recently had to restore my computer. Doing that I have to get the new firefox which I now have version 102. Updates disabled instantly. I was on version 88. On version 88 this feature was not on it and version 102 now has this feature and I do not like it.

The feature I am talking about is if you open the downloads panel and view the downloads list and right click on one of the downloaded files in list there is now an option to Delete. I accidentlly hit this and thought it was just deleting it from downloads panel. Nope it deletes it from computer permanently, not even to recycle bin. Click Delete its gone for good until download it again.

And this delete option is right above the option remove from history, which I use a lot.

So I want to know how to disable this delete option? Thanks

Hi,

It seems there is a Unique User ID in each FireFox install. This is how whatsapp can login again even without cookies. One can find in firefox BuildID ProductID ApplicationID EnrollmentIDs and about 32k more of telemetry data (see crash info), incl plenty of detailed hardware and software info that creates a fingerprint of the user. Who had that horrible idea?

This is VERY disconcerting given that you laud yourselves as privacy protectors.

Please explain why you collect all that data.

I've been using Dashlane for a long while. It stopped working, so I deleted it to try to solve the problem. When I tried to re-install it, it won't work. I just keep getting an error about it being corrupted. I've restarted the computer, closed Firefox. It's the same. Dashlane tried to trouble shoot with me, but they have not solved it either. It worked on Google Chrome, but I cannot get it to work on Firefox. Firefox is my browser! I need help to get Dashlane installed and working on it.

I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 and am running FireFox 102.01 (64-bit) now.

I noticed that (by default, at least) the FireFox titlebar has disappeared. What would have been its contents are shown on the tab-label, though I usually have enough tabs open that only a few letters of the title are visible.

That being said, about 75% of the space is empty on the Menu Bar, which only lists File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help Why not show the page title in a pane on the right-end (or middle) of the Menu Bar?

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Immediately following a Firefox update I began having scrolling problems on my Facebook page. I am able to scroll down normally to a point, and then, all of a sudden, the scroll bar will go up and immediately go back down without me touching the mouse. It will continue doing the up and down scrolling indefinitely and at a high rate of speed. I have tried turning off auto scroll and smooth scrolling at the browser, but no luck. I have Windows 8.1. I have never heard of anyone else having this problem so this seemed like my only option.

I am constantly annoyed by the ever present "notification" to update Firefox to the latest version. There is no easy way to get rid of the nagging notice. PLEASE NOTE ::: I DID DOWNLOAD AND UPDATE MY PC TO THE NEWEST VERSION WHICH DID NOT LIKE AT ALL !!!!

So, I returned to the latest version I had been using and all is well. EXCEPT : I AM CONSTANTLY NAGGED TO UPDATE. WHICH I DID, DID NOT LIKE, AND DO NOT PLAN T DO IT AGAIN.

You need to add an option for user like me who have done what you asked and did not care for the result. IF YOU THINK PEOPLE WILL LEAVE, PERHAPS YOU ARE RIGHT ... IF YOU GIVE THEM THAT CHOICE. I PREFER TO SEE THE CHOICE TO KEEP WHAT i HAVE AND NOT GIVE IN TO THE LATEST WHIM. So, if your product is so good, why not let us decide to stay with the version we are using and not be nagged into a new one we will not like. If your product is as string as you think, you should be able to give the user that choice! D. CHAPMAN ANGERS, FRANCE

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

I was checking to make sure I was using the correct version of Firefox browser. I ended up on a page that stated "It looks like you haven’t started Firefox in a while. Do you want to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience? And by the way, welcome back!" It went on to ask if I would like to Refresh Firefox, just like it was brand new.

In the Menu option on any Firefox page I can get on it states: "Account Disconnected". I have been using Firefox just about every day for 3 years. What is going on. I didn't dare click on the "Refresh Firefox" tab because I have no idea what will happen. Will I lose everything, bookmarks, settings, etc.?

Please help

I use FF all day, every day and recently it stopped automatically logging me into my account when I open the browser. I've read through the other posts on this topic and tried everything from creating a new profile to changing the History settings. Unfortunately, none of the solutions provided have worked. I know it's only one password to type in and then my profile is synced and it retrieves my bookmarks, saved logins, etc. but it's very annoying to have to do.

Does anyone else have any other potential solutions?

I was having an issue where FF wouldn't restore my tabs on start. "Recently closed tabs" wasn't available, and when choosing "recently closed windows," 2 - 4 new windows would open, along with one which had the previous session tabs.

I noticed in the task manager that FF wasn't actually closing, so I started using "exit" in the FF menu. Now, even after a computer reboot, when I start FF I see a number of windows open and close quickly, along with a identical "copy" of my windows taskbar sliding in from the left to the right, and "replacing" the current one. I had to record my screen to be sure that's what I was seeing. After the "extra" windows flash open and closed, the FF window with the previous session tabs "slides in" with the "new" windows taskbar.

This does not seem normal to me, as my Windows taskbar has never move before unless I moved it. I'd also like to be able close FF without exiting through the menu, or having to reopen and close several windows if I forget to. This behavior is the same in when I start in safe mode as well. I've never synced FF, or signed for that, and I ran malwarebytes and gotten nothing. Is something wrong here?

I use Yahoo mail within Firefox. Just recently it has changed so that if I select the download option, to download any attachment to an email, it will either open (if say a PDF) or ask me where I want to save the attachment, but then the tab the Yahoo mail is open in will close once the attachment has opened/saved. Before, I could download/open/save or whatever and the Yahoo mail tab would remain open (as I would expect it to).

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Hi all,

since the last firefox update I am not able to visit the german Amazon Seller Central website anymore. I have no knowlegde in how to solve this issue and that is why I am asking for your support.

The link to the website is: https://sellercentral.amazon.de/ Whenever I want to visit the site, I get the error "HTTP Status 400 – Bad Request" (see attached image).

I already checked with amazon themselves, but they said the issue lies within my computer. My IT department said the issue is related to the browser most likely; and indeed, with Microsoft Edge for example, I am able to open the website.

Does anyone know this error and even better knows how to solve the problem?

Thanks in advance!
