This question was already posted and badly answered in 2016. Now things have changed a lot and Firefox DO try to translate everything which is quite annoying to anyone knowing more than a single language. No extensions related. I need to completely disable that. My firefox is up to date: 118.0.1 (64-bit).

Thank you Arturo

Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

One year later Firefox still reports bogus location. Today it says I am in Tok Alaska, but Im actually in Banff Canada 1300 miles as the crow flies from where it thinks I am.

Over the last year I have uninstalled FF removed settings then reinstalled from scratch. Its been over a year now and FF never can pin point where I am at. Today it says I am 1300+ miles from where I am. I really don't want to go back to using Chrome but it appears I will have to as it normally has my exact position. I travel for 6 months of the year and have 3 internet connections shared via an internal WiFi that I use 99% of the time. They are connected via Starlink, GoogleFi (T-Mobile) and AT&T SIMs. I have a SSID with the _nomap suffix and that fixes Chrome but FF NEVER seems to know where I am, no matter how many times I clear the browsing data. I really don't want to go back to Chrome, but I cannot do my work if FF thinks I am somewhere else all the time. Geez, If only there was an addon or extension that would override FF location so I could tell it where I am. I'm in FF Hell. -Bill

Recently I started using "Bitdefender Antivirus Plus". Now, every day, when I first use my computer, I get the following message:

    Suspicious connection blocked
    Feature:
    Online Threat Prevention
    firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security    certificate to t.sgc.io. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one.
    Add to exceptions

Is this something I should be concerned about, or should I "Add to exceptions"?

I use 118.0.2 (64-bit) because I do not like the newer versions, but every time I open it I have to decline two consecutive Firefox popups urging me to upgrade to the newest version. Since I open Firefox dozens of times a day, these constant popups are driving me crazy. How can I stop them? Thanks.

I am running Firefox 118.0.2 64 bit on windows 10 22H2. For one particular website I get a 403 error on Firefox, the site opens normally on Edge. I do not have any add ons or extensions that block websites. I have cleared cache and cookies and tried to open the site in troubleshooting mode, no luck. I have also disabled BitDefender, same results. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Why can I not keep my Bookmark Folders in alphabetical order? Yes, I know I can see them alphabetically as an option in "Manage Bookmarks" but I am tired of scrolling up and down trying to find the proper folder to put my Bookmark into when I am saving a new Bookmark. This design or lack there of makes Firefox feel old and clunky.

Hello,


I have been using FF on my laptop without any account (as i never needed to sync on other devies). Two days back, I have created a FF account so I can sync my credentials/history on another laptop. Since then my passwords are not loading and I have gone through lots of articles and tried all options. I have only one default profile and I can see the History and Bookmarks but lost passwords. The logins.json has only entries since I created the FF account. Please help me how to recover passwords? Many thaks in advance..

open links from sidebar in new tab with ctrl without switching to it immediately

When you open a link from the sidebar while holding ctrl, firefox opens it in a new tab and switches to it immediately; whereas when you click a link from a webpage with ctrl, it does not switch to the new tab (unless you hold shift as well, or check "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" in settings > general > tabs). I would like if firefox does not automatically switch to opened links from the sidebar (history, bookmark, etc.), when I open them with ctrl? (I know I can hold shift to do that, but I was wondering if there might be a preference in about:config to change the reverse this behaviour for sidebars)


Thanks, Ibr.
