Hi guys,

I don't know when and how exactly this thing was added to my firefox behind my back, I don't like it, I don't like Baidu Pan either but I have to use it.

I checked the extensions and add-ons, nothing suspicious was found.

Can you please help me remove it?

When I attempt to access several websites, I am prompted to turn off my ad blocker. As I have not added a third-party software or extension that does such, I assume it is part of Firefox proper. Search as I might, I cannot find any specific reference to such a thing in "Settings". SO...how can I temporarily disable the 'Ad Blocker' device that is part of Firefox? The 'TEMPORARY' part is important, as I do greatly value the function!

My Firefox browser is showing an incorrect location. If I check my location on any other browser it shows true but Firefox is way off. Causing sites to freeze my accounts for irregular location activity. Have already restarted modem, PC and browser but location in Firefox remains the same bad location while all others show true location.

I am running FireFox 90.0.2 and it seems like every website is asking me to disable my AD Blocker. Does FireFox have a built in one??? I have clicked on the shield and disabled the Enhanced Tracking Protection but that has not helped at all. The only way I can get around the AD Blocker problem is to use MicroSoft Edge which I hate!! Help please.

I am a browser / add on moron? I have been a fan of opera for many years because i could group tabs (IE Family history, telecommunications, steam trains etc) Opera has a high overhead, is slow and i needed something better - A friend suggested Firefox - Its a winner.

So i have seen add ons that would allow me to group my tabs but have no idea how to install one or where i should go for help.?

Please point me in the right direction - Im happy to read information but hoped it would be a click and install

Thanks

How can I permanently force firefox's automatic updates to be turned off? Which guy modified the original design for the new version of Firefox bookmarks? Is there something wrong with that man's brain? Is the spacing of the new bookmark item too large to read? It's very uncomfortable.

I have never asked for logins to be saved. Now saved logins comes up when I try to sign in to my email. I do not like it!! I travel with my computer and do not want my passwords automatically entered.

How do I get rid of any logins that have been saved?

What did they do with Firefox?  Are they trying to kill it?
