Hi Firefox Team

I am very happy to use this browser as it serves all my needs perfectly! So thanks you for that.

The issue I have is about the updates. Whenever Firefox updates, I lose the sites saved on it. I have no issues with that.

However, can you give me the option to select a time and date for it?

That way I can, 1) Select a time when I am not working on Firefox. 2) Coordinate with other updates like Windows and McAfee.

This will ensure that I am prepared for the sites to disappear just once, instead of every time there's an update.

Thanks, Kajal

Hi I just down loaded the Firefox latest version. But I am not able to find the option to "restore previous session" in the new version. With previous versions I didn't have any problem to restore. Any tips on how to restore? Thanks

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.

About this page

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?

IP address: 110.174.28.168 Time: 2020-11-18T03:41:25Z URL: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=xxxxx

And I have to go through a captcha process to get through. Oddly enough, I NEVER get this problem if I search (for exactly the same addresses) from within Google Chrome. Is this a Google scan to try and force back to Google Chrome?

Please Help! Why am I all of a sudden getting this error message? I have been using Firefox for years and Gmail.

Do you really want to use HTML Gmail?

You're about to use a version of Gmail designed for slower connections and legacy browsers. To get all of Gmail's features, including inbox categories, images and quick actions, please use the latest version of Gmail (recommended).

Take me to latest Gmail

So, right now, I am using another web browser and that is because when I use Firefox, it checks for updates way too often. Every five or ten minutes it checks for updates and SLOWS my internet down. Is there a way to change this frequency? I do not want it to stop or anything, but why every 5 or 10 minutes does it have to check for updates? The older versions of Firefox, you could change the frequency and such of this. This made the web browser usable for me because I am on a slower connection.
