As stated now all my saved passwords, website histories and everything are now gone and it now says default profile 1 release and I don't use your beta channel either. So in the span of 20 minutes I went from updated, to updated a second time to release 1 and there is nothing in my profile now.

Please tell me that you store the default profile somewhere so it can be imported. I always relied on Firefox to this moment and always thought Google need to learn how to deliver what their users want and not what they want but right now so angry about what has happened.

I've used Mozilla since it was Netscape 2. My six-year-old nephew draws better than your icon developers! Your interface sucks and there are no provisions to change it. Your browser interface is WORSE than Microsux interslut Explorer. You REMOVE functionality with every evolution and make it SLOWER. Not everyone can afford to buy a new computer every year to keep up with the bloatware you put out. Give me a way to change icons! I've known how to change the main icon. I want to make the thing at least LOOK decent, not like a bunch of scribbles!

So when I try to visit archive.org or its wayback machine, I get "Secure Connection Failed" Two widgets are offered: a tickbox for reporting issues and a [Try Again] button. Your Help says to click on the [Advanced] button but there isn't one.

Before anybody gives me a lesson in online security, I would ask that you focus on your usability issue and not my personal habits, thanks.

Firefox did an automatic update and in the process deleted itself from my computer. When I click on the shortcut I get an error message: The item firefox.exe that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly. I rebooted my computer but the program is completely gone. How do I get it and all of my bookmarks, etc. back again? I'm using IE (ugh) to access Mozilla's web site.

Newsletters I have been receiving for years abruptly stopped coming on Saturday, 5/18/19. I've been the on the phone since Sunday with different customer care representatives and they don't have an answer. I have unsubscribed and resubscribed to the newsletters several times, but that doesn't help and I'm wondering if Firefox could be blocking my access.

Firefox 67 is suppose to block fingerprinting when activated in the security/privacy settings. Well, try this french site : https://amiunique.org and see what can be read from your system and browser. I'm wondering how can it be possible to block fingerprinting other than giving false/random/generic data and be like everyone, not unique...

I want to change the "+" color on the new tab icon

I was able to do this for the close tab "X' icon with the following css code in my userChrome.css file.

.tabbrowser-tab .close-icon:hover {

  fill: white !important;
  background-color: red !important;
  border-radius: 4px;
}

I think this code should work for the new tab icon, however I don't know the name of the new tab icon.

Please help,

Thank you

A couple of days ago my bookmarks toolbar disappeared. If I go through the View/Toolbars menu it is ticked and if I click on the Menu button and select Library/Bookmarks/Bookmarking Tools it gives me the option to hide the bookmarks toolbar so I presume it's still there somewhere but I can't see it. Any suggestions please?

Hi, Since the add on problems, i've been trying to dowload the fix for firefox version 52.9.0 (xp32bit) How ever what ever i try, i get a message "unable to dowload due to connection failure" and tried everything, even re-installing firefox, still the same. Is there a way to dowload the fix, save in and run it as a file ? It is pretty annoying as i can't add any add ons and don't know what to do if i can't even download the fix from the website. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Phil.

Question: Will new versions of Mozilla Fenix for Android be released every 6-8 weeks on a schedule just like Firefox for Desktop? (May 24th, 2019)

I sure hope it will be. I always put release dates for Firefox Stable, LibreOffice Fresh, and Eclipse on my calendar, and be sure to install all three the same day the updates come out. This is to say that update days for Firefox, LibreOffice, and Eclipse are days that make me happy. I was thinking of getting a prepaid Android phone in addition to my iPhone 6s Plus just to enjoy Firefox for Android. I then heard Mozilla will be replacing it with Fenix because of very low market share. Open source software that announces update days well in advance are my favorite kind of software there is. I can't wait for Mozilla to announce the release dates of Firefox versions past Firefox 71.0 Stable this December 10th!

When I upgraded to the most recent version of Firefox, I lost all of my tabs. The directions on upgrade indicated that I would not lose any tab information. However, on startup of the new version, I seem to only have the option to restore from sync which I never did. I do not believe that I was instructed to do this prior to closing. I maintain 2 active open profiles, home and office, and I do not want these to be synced. I had them both set up to automatically restore the last session which was working well. I am no longer able to restore from an old session. I think this is because this is an entirely new version of Firefox and the local settings were not saved. Now I want to either recover the old tab data and apply to the new installation or restore the previous version of Firefox which might have my previous tab data. Please help.

Until I updated the browser this morning I would normally:

    Click the icon on the left of the address bar (where the URL is shown).
    While still holding the mouse button down, move the pointer to the desktop, then release the mouse button. The       shortcut will be created.

This no longer works. Any suggestions. Using Windows 7.
