I can't get Amazon back as a search option Bing is one of the search options selected in search settings, doesn't appear.

If I install an older version will it be ok. Why do they keep installing new updates which cause issues with the one I am using. I installed Opera and will give it a try. Firefox keeps changing things that work.'bold text'

Firefox won't download a pdf from a link that Chrome will download from

This has been going on for a week or two. I'm running Windows 11 and Firefox 123.0.1. Specific links inside a health plan web site will not download but using Chrome or Edge they do download successfully. I'm also using Bitdefender. Other links inside the site do allow pdf downloads on Fireffox. I've reviewed the information available through this discussion site but cannot find something that applies. I allow tried backing up to version 122 but that did not help and the Create a New Profile requirement was a big deterrent. When attempting the download, I do get a swirly download icon specific to the web site that lasts about a second and then vanishes with the download folder for Firefox showing no download. Thanks for anyone's ideas on this.

Firefox keeps offering to translate websites, this is EXTREMELY unwanted

Firefox keeps offering to translate websites, your new feature.

I neither want it to, nor do I appreciate ads, because it is simply you advertising your new product.

I have looked at the settings and there are 0 languages for which I've set it so it will offer me to translate and 0 for which it will do. Besides the fact I do speak and read multiple languages; it is not a feature I am interested in.

So when I set it so it will not bug me about it and every time I enter a foreign language site the little pop-up shows; that's some serious unwanted ads and also clearly FAR more tracking than FF is even supposed to be doing.

I have used firefox for nearly 15 years, but I'm honestly wondering if I should find another privacy focused browser One that doesn't spam me with little pop-ups over it's latest ill-conceived stupid feature.

So you could help by actually NEVER-EVER under any fucking circumstances show this stupid translation pop-up UNLESS I put I request it to do so in the settings or at the very LEAST allow me to turn it off.

I don't know how you can help. I really really really hate hunting for things that were there in previous years. I do not like full screen lay over that mozilla has taken to doing, if it doesn't stop i will have to remove it. I want to see my tabs, I want mozilla to stop playing with my settings and logging me out when I am idle or on my phone. There are people with the same problem but its all techy talk and i don't understand and its playing with my time to constantly search or resign in. I don't need microsoft anything, hate it, don't use cloud, don't use chrome... so do we have an issue? one more thing... I absolutely hate with a passion of terminator any fucking ai garbage and bots. would sooner smash devices and take out a fire arm to shoot any robots. Hope that makes it clear. I have anxiety issues, so swearing is an issue, get used to it especially if artifical nonsence is involved. I try very hard not to swear at people. Ai is a different matter. I have norton antivirus.

Hi there,

I've been having an issue lately where random text I've written is being inserted into other areas of my paragraphs in online text blocks. This mainly happens when I hop between paragraphs and try to edit content.

IE: If I wrote this statement and went back to correct something above, this sentence would "somehow" get added into the spot where I'm editing. It makes NO sense and is only happening within Firefox. Is there a way to fix it? I've noticed this happening on both Facebook and Indeed now too...so, I think it could be more of an issue with Firefox than certain sites.

The image is an example of the text being added in and reinserted. Thanks in advance for the help!
