When bing invades, every time you call up firefox you get bing. When you reset. It remains bing under the name firefox. This has happened on two of my computers, but I am not sure exactly which running board programme contained bing. Aside from difficult experiments windows, not sure how to correct. Why can there not be a firefox which simply cannot be hacked? A big waste of time reconstituting my firefox. Support is of little help.

Hello,

excuse me, this is a translation.

Could you tell me, please, if there is finally a solution for the bookmarks that are in gray and not yellow as before, because gray is very unpleasant and if possible we can change the color of the bookmarks, thank you.

Cordially.

This year, I cannot access http://tplinkwifi.net. I get this instead: Trying to configure the Router? It looks like you aren't connected to your TP-Link network. To access tplinkwifi.net, your device must be connected to TP-Link Router’s network. Please check your network connection and try again.

It works fine on Seamonkey. I do use Ghostery and flash player is disabled.

Any suggestions?

Saving cache

Security settings for my bank account allow three choices for verifying identity: every time I log in, every time I open the account, or just whenever the bank needs to know. For the past decade, the third has been in effect. But starting in September, even if I click on option 3, every morning I once again have to prove identity.

In discussing the issue with the bank I was told that it was because I clear my cache every night when I shut down. I said I had been doing that since 2015 without a problem - why the change? The bank tech support guy asked if I accessed the bank web site through Firefox, and I said I did. He said that, being an open source software, Firefox issues far more technical updates than any other browser, and one of the recent updates must have changed the system of how cache and cookies are cleared.

I then went into Firefox Preferences and it appeared that I can allow specific websites to continue active while other websites are cleared. I tried to do that last night with the bank website, but to no avail. This morning I had to, once again, prove identity through phone message.

Just to confirm: since 2015, I have made no changes to my computer system (iMac and MacBook), kept the same Internet service provider, used the same anti-viral software, and cleared cache and cookies daily. All that time, I could open my bank account daily without proving identity each time. Les than two months ago, that suddenly changed. The bank says it's likely the browser. Any thoughts?

I have been unable to access my account on chase.com for a few months. I have tried:

1. private session 2. removing/resetting addons 3. reinstalling Firefox and resetting all options 4. disabling hardware acceleration

I can access my account on Edge and Chrome, but not Firefox on my PC. I can load it on my Android phone. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I use Google as my search engine and I want more than 10 hits displayed when I do a search. I change the display setting to show 100 hits per page and go thru the Captra to save the value. The next time I do a search, the display value is back to 10. How do I permanently change this value and save it?

When I initially set up Firefox Monitor, I added 5 email addresses to this service.

After a couple of weeks I would like to add another email address. However, I am not able to find a field to add a new email address.

When going to monitor.firefox.com and logging in, all I can see is the dashboard showing numbers of email addresses and breaches. The button to manage email addresses only leads to a page where I can delete the existing addresses, but not inserting a new one.

Maybe it is just too obvious and I'm blind. Please help.

My browser recently updated to 83.0 and the search engine switched to Bing. When I go to Preferences - Search, the default search engine is listed as Google. Even if type something in the bar and then click on the Google icon, it searches on Bing. If I click on the DuckDuckGo icon, it searches on DuckDuckGo. How can I switch my search engine to Google?

When I open a tab, I get this notice: "Open Network Login Page": "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

When I close that tab, I can proceede as normally.

If I click on that button where it says "Open Network Login Page," I get another screen where that button is gone, and it says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

Here is the URL: https://detectprotal.firefox.com/success.txt

Both of these pages has a question mark in a circle, but this is not clickable.

I am enclosing screenshots.

This is Firefox version 82.0.3 I use a Mac Book, version 10.14.6

Thanks!

I am using an iMac running OSX 10.12.6. Firefox version 82.0.2.

For the last couple of weeks I have found that I am often unable to open many links on websites while using Firefox. I click on the link and nothing happens. If I hover over the link, I will see a URL in the bottom left of the page.

I have not found any particular pattern for what links work/don't work, it seems to be pretty random.

I suspect this is something simple that I just am not aware of. I'd really appreciate any ideas to get Firefox working correctly again. Currently I am being forced to use Chrome on many of my usual sites where Firefox will not work.

Thanks in advance for your help!

My laptop died damaging the registry on my WIN 10 installation, the HD and files are intact, bought a new laptop and want to migrate my old firefox installation (unsynced) I copied over the folder from the roaming folder as per the old way and opening firefox says I should sync the new version,and it has created a new profile folder, obviously I can't sync. Will renaming the old profile the same as the new one work or do I have to down the route of installing an older version of Firefox to migrate successfully?
