I thought FireFox was the way to go but now I'm sick of their political propaganda as well. What browser, if any, will stop pushing their "right think" leftist BS onto me!?

Hello! I immediately apologize for any possible mistakes or incorrectly composed sentences - I am writing this message through a translator. I hope that I can convey my thoughts, please treat with understanding. I just started using Firefox, after Chrome and Edge it is like a breath of fresh air, everything works great, except for the Ebay website. The site itself is working, but I can't log in there. The page is loaded after entering data with the message "Access To Website Blocked". In support, I found a similar problem, they advised to disable tracking protection, but this doesn't help. I also cleared all browser data, history, cookies, cache. Launched the browser in safe mode. It doesn't help either. I thought that the Adguard program was to blame for this - I turned it off. And it didn't work either. Moreover, I can access the site without any problems through Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. Even through the mobile version of Firefox, you can log in without problems, but on a PC there is no. I made such banal methods as rebooting and checking for system and driver updates. The PC rebooted, Windows 10 was updated to the latest version (Home, 64 bit, version 2004, KB4566782, OS build 19041.450), the drivers were all updated too. Firefox on this computer has not been used before, i.e. the reason is definitely not in the hardware and hardly in the software. Only one site Ebay doesn't work. Everything else works flawlessly. Please, help fix this problem. Or at least help send Mozilla report somehow.

How to auto download 20 tabs on startup?

When I start Firefox only the focused page is loaded. All other pages are blank as I set 'Clear history when Firefox closes' to 'automatically clear' the cache on exit. If I click on another tab it refreshs it. How do I to get every page to load on startup? Firefox treats pinned and normal tabs differently. On restart I have to 'Select all Tabs', then 'Reload page' every time. It used to load all pages automatically but now it doesn't. | Is there an extension? Or an About:Config entry I can change or insert? Private browsing is not used. Pages are open in tabs not windows. I have 20+ tabs open all the time. About half are pinned. Side Note - I would be happy to see the "Reload All Tabs" menu option reinstated.

I uninstalled Firefox and then re-installed Firefox. I did this because I added an extension and did not think it was working properly. Then when I went to delete it could not find it so I uninstalled and got latest Firefox. Now, I cannot find my bookmarks. Please tell me the uninstall DID NOT REMOVE my bookmarks of several years!!! In the past when uninstalling, there was a check box asking do you want all bookmarks etc removed... Don't tell me that my bookmarks are gone...

I have more than 14000 files in the directory in ....\Firefox\cache2\entries and I would like to get rid of them. The large number of files in this directory impacts my disc performance, e.g. during backup or virus scanning. I have tried to clear cache and history in the options menu, but the files stay there. The files date from one week ago back to approximately one year ago. Can you give some advice, what these files are used for an how I can remove them ? Thanks

The scroll bar on the right of my screen disappears when I sign in to "The Guardian". This started within the last week. It works OK when I sign in to my other on line subscriptions (NY Times and Washington Post) and all other places I access. It works OK when I do a "Safe Mode" load of Firefox. I have explored the few Add-ons and Custom Settings but have not been able to determine the cause. I am having this problem on any of 4 different computers currently running Firefox 81.0 and Windows 10. Microsoft Edge is working OK if I use it.

Any help would be appreciated.

September 22, 2020 Firefox, I recently allow an update of the Firefox browser. It was the worst decision I have ever made regarding my computer. Will you PLEASE give directions to reverse it back to the way it was? The thought has occurred to me that maybe I got a fake Firefox update. That surprises me if I did. I all ways check for another confirmation before do anything. I have considered going to a previous date but I my lose even more data doing that. Has Firefox had any recent updates? Please respond to this email and advise me what I can do if it indeed a fake update. Is it possible to delete the update? I feel that I lost the computer I was so satisfied with while I was using Firefox. A long time Firefox fan, Charles Shaw
