Hi,

I want to disable the annoying update notification popup that firefox keep throwing in my face. I have searched the web and the forum and it seems like every version of firefox has a different method for doing this.

I am presently using version 80.0.1

Does anybody know a way to stop these popups in this version?


I know that this forum is run by volunteers - but a message for the developers: LEAVE IT ALONE You had a nice little browser until you tried to make it the answer to a maiden's prayer for everyone. Now you have a buggy, annoying piece of bloatware that is just pssing people off. Nice work bucko.

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. I have a Logitech - G502 Hero gaming mouse that, when used with Chrome, automatically mapped 2 buttons on it to Page Back and Page Forward. In Firefox, those buttons now invariably start the locked scrolling function.

Is there a way to change the mouse shortcuts so they function like they did in Chrome?

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it? Thanks in advance! Pete

the 1st youtube video is played out on the screen, and the other video in my headphones.

I would like to give my little brother my pair of headphones to watch youtube, and for my class lectures that I have to watch, I would like to listen to them through the screen, or vice versa. And of course I would split the windows up, his screen of youtube on the left, and mine on the right.

Thank you

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Valued community members: Not looking for a fix or work around solution here. My goal is to better understand why this occurs. Each time I (frequently) update to the latest version of Firefox, I Iose extensions (in this case new tab - cursor to search bar). I know that users can go in and correct this, but I would prefer that settings, extension, addons, etc, be preserved. My question is, is that really challenging of a code writing task? I know next to nothing about programing, but based on my experience using other apps, I would think preservation would be a piece of cake. Can a Code Joe comment in terms I might understand?

Oops! I must have clicked something by mistake. Suddenly email is hidden.

Start Firefox, see string of icons = top sites Click Mail.Yahoo icon (should see ATT.net email list) Left panel shows "Inbox" count 770; other entries also show counts. Clicking "Inbox" causes a thin blue line to appear above main panel, then vanish. Main panel shows just "Today" with no entries. Can compose and send email.

I'd certainly appreciate any help on this situation -- I'm in deep water here.
