Been using FF since 2005ish. (Me 1946) Latest version (90.0.2 (64-bit) annoys me greatly because I can't remove the unwanted 'Pocket' BS. I've followed several online 'advices' on this, including this site, & still it persists.

FF is getting like IE IMO, with all the awkwardness to remove unwanted Bloatware. For an 'Ordinary User'. Could some knowledgeable FF user please explain, in language I can understand, English, but not very Tech Savvy) how I remove Pocket from the browser Thanks.

I have never asked for logins to be saved. Now saved logins comes up when I try to sign in to my email. I do not like it!! I travel with my computer and do not want my passwords automatically entered.

How do I get rid of any logins that have been saved?

What did they do with Firefox?  Are they trying to kill it?

I really dislike the look of the tabs in the newest version. A floating bubble, not connected to the page, for the active tab? And the inactive tabs are connected, but there is no separation between the tabs? Aside from uninstalling the latest version and installing a previous version, is there a way to restore the look of the previous version? Maybe an add-on? If I have to reinstall an old version I'll probably just switch over to a different browser.

Is there anyway to set my own zoom levels, like we used to be able to, you know, like 10 years ago?

I used to have my own zoom levels that went up 10% all the way to 300%, then started 25% intervals.

For example, my levels from 100% to 200% looked like this: 100%, 110%, 120%, 130%, 140%, 150%, 160%, 170%, 180%, 190%, 200%.

So, is there any way to do this now?

ADBLOCK CUSTOM FILTERS not working on this site WHAT THE HECK IS THAT AHAH WHAT??? ALSO THIS. After "Refresh"ing Firefox, it now by default saves a file with the page title, not the filename. I can no longer find out how to change this default behaviour (presumably I'd used an addon that has been deleted). This is extremely inconvenient - many archives have large numbers of filenames like "<number>.txt", e.g. "234567.txt", but all with the same title. I don't understand why keeping the old Firefox default was not made an option when you changed to saving by title!

Hi,

Is there a way to change the title for when an open file button is clicked in the browser?In Firefox a window pops up with the title "File Upload" but if I have two browsers open both titles are the same and I am having a hard time uniquely identifying them (Trying to automate some tasks using autoit).

I know its a windows pop up but in chrome the title is "Open" which makes me think that this title is being controlled by the browser?

Help much appreciated

Ever since yesterday when I accidentally turned on caret browsing I've been trying to turn it back off. I've been pressing F7 in an attempt to bring up the pop-up, but to no avail. I've been searching all over the internet for solutions, but nothing has helped yet. I'm only able to find articles on disabling caret browsing in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. Obviously, that doesn't help me with Firefox.
