I am tired of your relentless, a;most daily update notices which can't be turned off. This is an obvious Control Issue with you.

HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY RIGHTS AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

If your service is so flawed that you have to consistently update, them your users need to find another browser/ This is my plan.

Effective now, I will not use your site because of your controlling attitude, lack of support and forced actions. I suggest that other users consider doing this until Moz://a stops this controlling bull shit!

In this environment, we do NOT need someone like you telling us what to do.

You're wrong, you're stupid and you're going to loose in the long run as your users are not going to put u p with this relentless BS!

Firefox has been blocking more and more websites that play music or video lately. These are clearly secure. I see the "connection not secure" notice because there is supposedly a problem with the certificate. All the help tutorials from Mozilla do not work. For example, I can't listen to internet radio (example: http://radio.orange.com/radios/helpmechill). Have Windows 10, I clear the cache regularly, it is also not a problem with external security program like ESET etc.. Suggested solutions do not work, I have no option to turn off the security blocking temporarily etc.

Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

I would prefer to be using Firefox rather than Google Chrome, but, my devices when all being logged in with the same account will not all sync as they should be. They will also be synced, but then they would loose their connection with the other ones. The sync should be that when I would simply log into the browser that it would automatically sync using the login information the same easy way it is done in Chrome. I have kept using Chrome, because of the fact that the sync is able to work across all devices simply by logging in for the sync to work & it will work properly to where all of the browsers that would be logged in would be synced, no issues whatsoever. How can I actually login to the sync on everything with there not being any issues of any kind across all devices?

I've noticed that Firefox becomes less and less comptatible to websites as time goes by. My last example : https://www.registreentreprises.gouv.qc.ca/

At first, I thought it had to do with the privacy features and all, and still think it does somehow. Some features just won't work, websites don't show some parts, etc. My first reflex until a few months ago was to try accessing later, maybe something is wrong with the website now and will work later... Later I end-up using Edge. Now my reflex is: let's check if it works in Edge... and it does! This is becoming worse; reaching the wanna drop Firefox all together point.

Websites are working perfectly in Edge or Chrome, but not Firefox. Firefox is no longer showing up as "approved" on most websites. Why is that?

As a long time user of Firefox, and monthly donator, I'm starting to get feed-up with this increasing problem. I don't have time and should not have to debug Firefox as a user. I just want to browse the internet, nor make a statement to the world that I believe Firefox is the purest. Browsers should just work 100%, that's it.

Please fix this.

My normal process for opening a new tab is to press Ctrl+t and start typing the URL I want, then press enter once auto-complete shows the correct URL.

Sometimes I want to open a bunch of tabs at once, so while the first tab is loading I'll press Ctrl+t again and start typing in the next URL. If I wait until the page has started loading this works as expected, and the new tab opens with the cursor in an empty URL bar. However, if I press Ctrl+t immediately after pressing enter, the new tab's URL bar will contain the URL from the previous tab.

I can't always reproduce this reliably, it only happens when I'm working really quickly and I usually don't notice until I see that the URL bar contains both the old and part of the new address. It may also be more common with websites I haven't visited recently, I usually encounter it when paying bills which happens about once a month.

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

Manage Exceptions button for cookies is not working for me since FF88 or 89, don’t remember which version precisely. I click on the button and the dialogue box that would normally appear to set exceptions does not pop up. Moreover it looks like when I click on the button the user interface on that tab freezes for a period. My FF profile is customised. I know if I start with a blank profile the issue goes away. I have another that works fine. However I would rather try to fix this issue in my current profile. I poked around in about:config but so far have had no success.

Any ideas? I searched google but could not find anything. Also checked mozilla bugzilla a while back without success. I am using FF 92 on Arch Linux.

On several websites (mostly financial websites and National Public Radio websites) I keep getting these error messages. Example:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www1.online.penfed.org/PenFedOnline/Forms/Security/LogonPassword.aspx" on this server.

Reference #18.14223517.1632679189.e95c39


I've tried some of the "solutions" on Firefox's help pages, but nothing helps. Starting Firefox in "Trouble-shooting mode" doesn't help, and some of the posted "solutions" don't even apply to the current version of Firefox.

Sometimes I have the same problem if I use Google Chrome, but the problem is worse with Firefox.

What's going on? How do I fix the problem?

Thanks in advance.
