I used to like Firefox because it let me set my browser up in an intuitive and comfortable way, and it was able to easily do the things I wanted to do. Then simple and useful features (e.g., tabs under the address bar) were hidden in about:config. Then they were removed completely, and you had to use third-party extensions to restore them (e.g., getting the refresh button on the address bar). Then, the third-party extensions were blocked so that you had to copy and paste third-party code into userChrome.css (e.g., restoring "View Image").

I hate updating Firefox, because it gets worse every time. This browser has turned to absolute garbage, and it just keeps circling the drain. Wasn't Firefox supposed to be the customizable browser? Mozilla seems to have decided that customization needs to be completely wiped out, and features need to be removed for...some reason?

Why is this happening? I shouldn't have to be afraid of the update button, but it's become a "make Firefox even worse" button. My only consolation now is that Mozilla won't have any more major updates for my operating system, so I might be okay for a few months.

Hi,

I have an Acer Chromebook. I just downloaded the Firefox browser so I could use the Stardoll website. It's not really available through Chrome because you need the launcher to play now and it's doens't work with Chrome. I tried to download the launcher with Firefox but when I try to open the download, it just says 'no app found to open exe file.' I also tried to download the Flash add-on and it says the same thing. My laptop is on a Chrome OS. Will I be able to fix this problem?

TIA

Suddenly, I found I could not access Wall St Journal through my public library website using Firefox: I had one-time accessed Wash Post through the same site vs. daily accessing WSJ and after that any access would lead me to WP and not offer WSJ as a choice. Per the public library advice, I switched to Edge and immediately could access WSJ per usual and did not have the problem as with Firefox. Why? I have also had some sites which could not be accessed through Firefox but only through another browser like Edge.

Hi, My computer was having some issues and I thought that I transfer everything to a flash drive to transfer my information to a new computer. Come to find out it didn't transfer over to the flash drive. So everything is lost. My book marks and my saved web sites and passwords to them. I was wondering is there any way that you can help to retrieve them?
