I may have to stop using Firefox if I can't resolve this problem

After a few weeks certain Ebay pages start to not display correctly - writing goes small, moves to the left, big black arrows appear, other pages are alright

I know if I clear 'all cookies' it will solve the problem - but then I have to reload passwords etc on all the sites I visit

I've tried

  • switching of tracking protection on the ebay page
  • selecting and deleteing all Ebay cookies under 'managed data'

but neither solve the problem

The only solution I know to work is to clear all cookies - but I really can't be doing this every couple of weeks

"Pocket List" has disappeared in the drop down menu under the "library" icon where it used to be not more than a few days ago. It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Apparently Mozilla did an update and not it defaults to it's own printer dialog box. I hate it. There is a link to use the system print dialog box but it only works for that specific print job. I can't find a setting to force Firefox to always use the system printer dialog box. Anyone know how to fix this? It's enough to make me stop using the browser becasue thr Firefox dialog box sucks.

It's a very bad idea to move the screenshot function from the context menu in the address bar to a toolbar item you first have to position by customizing. This is exactly the kind of unnecessary interface change which annoys so many Firefox users. Okay, so why is it bad? Most "normal" users don't fiddle with interfaces, they accept it as it is. They expect functions they often use to stay in the same spot. If it's no longer there they think it's gone (and they're frustrated). They surely won't go looking for it in a customization menu. For me as a web designer the screenshot tool was extremely handy when dealing with clients, because it was very easy to explain where to find and how to use it, to send a screenshot of a website problem. Again, many common users don't know how to take screenshots with their system tools, so this was really helpful. Now, instead of explaining where to find it, I'll first have to explain how to customize the toolbar, what the item looks like, how to position it, etc. etc. The simplicity and helpfulness is gone. Suggestion: leave the screenshot function where it is by default, but offer the advanced users a way to make it a customizable item. Everyone is happy.

P.S. I only post this here, because the feedback site is currently deactivated.

Today I clicked on the library icon, chose 'bookmarks', and discovered that there is no option to view the menu of bookmarks that could previously be opened and viewed in a sidebar. Now I can choose 'search bookmarks' but will have to remember what all I've saved and cannot scroll through to see what's there. This does not work for me! Is there a way back to the menu?

I cannot take a screenshot, the drop down menu closes when attempting this.

Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

For some reason all my toolbar bookmarks have disappeared from the toolbar line below the search box. View Bookmarks Toolbar is checked 'Always Show'. I tried customizing and restoring defaults but still don't show, although the toolbar line disappeared and option was changed from Always Show to 'Only Show In New Tab'

I am using Private Browsing, although it does same even if I don't. So frustrating

What happened? Was a new version released 4/12/2021?

Please try again. IDID-1060 --. this is going on for 3? weeks now. i have called tech support through spectrum with no help. they could get in on their end and we changed pw's but it didn't help me. also--and i have no idea if this matters at all, but it disturbs me... the padlock right beside the address box says -verified by amazon-. why is that? at times when i have hovered that at websites, it says verified by, and the name of my security service. i can't 100% say that i have checked it when signing into spectrum tho, but still i don't understand why it would say amazon! i much prefer using firefox! but i also feel like i shouldn't have to use chrome part time to get to certain sites or do certain things. PLEASE PLEASE help me figure this out.

P.S. i am already forced to use chrome to play games on facebook for years now. except bingo blitz, which is odd to me. i can play that through firefox. sighs.
