I used Speedtest by Ookla. When the broad band was installed, the technician did this without a problem. Today when I tried I was taken to an installation page. After I used the SpeedTest, then my main page was gone and instead I have a bar of Firefox selected options. I've tried to find how this is done so I can set it back but I can't find it. Please help.

Previously to a mac OS upgrade to 11.6.1, the browser worked fine. Now, nothing loads even though all the other browsers work fine. Pages just display "Secure Connection Failed." I have gone through and executed the adjustments on the "Websites don't load - troubleshoot and fix error messages" page but it still does not work.

Hi! First of all, I'd like to congratulate the community on the 100th edition of Firefox.

The subject was selected as "other" because it is not a failure or problem, but a suggestion for improvement related to the information on the volume of cookies and website and cache data stored on disk.

It's been a while since I noticed this and now I present it in writing asking whether or not it is feasible to implement the suggestion below.

In Settings / Privacy and security / Cookies and website data, the amount of “bytes” stored taking up disk space appears.

According to the detailed description on the subject, available at the address

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/clear-cookies-and-site-data-firefox

there is a screen copy illustrating the explanations, for example:

Cookies and website data Your stored cookies, website data and cache are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space. know more

That's the point: "Your cookies, website data and cache stored are currently taking up 468 MB of disk space"

However, this information freezes when reaching 1.0GB.

The exact question: could this information be shown beyond the conditioned threshold until the user decides to clear all data?

Without further ado, I thank you in advance for your attention and, as far as possible, I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely, Ricardo Pinto. Basic Firefox User in Brazil

Will the latest update now being nagged about delete logins for web sites and apps Firefox has done with the last few updates? Second, why doesn't Firefox disclose WHY an update is needed first (so a user can make his or her own mind up)? These questions beg another important one: if Firefox believes all the constant updates are so important, first, why don't they get them all done at once and quit piecemealing them out? Dishing them out in smaller updates often could easily leave the impression that someone doesn't know what he's doing ... and I'd like not to believe that about Firefox.

Thank you.

PL (Polish Language) Nie piszę dobrze po angielsku, więc znajdźcie kogoś kto zna język polski. 1. Główny problem dotyczy "obrazków" lub zdjęć czy też krótkich filmów (z tik toka, youtube, tweetera i innych podobnych) serwisów zamieszczanych na głównych stronach internetowych jak www.interia.pl podaję dodatkowy - przykładowy link, na którym NIE są wyświetlane prawidłowo wszystkie obrazki:

https://wydarzenia.interia.pl/raporty/raport-ukraina-rosja/aktualnosci/na-zywo-wojna-w-ukrainie-96-dzien-inwazji-rosji-relacja-na-zywo,nzId,2448,mHash,92880d4500c43318aba043bc941a2868,akt,301752

Chciałbym wyjaśnić, że nie ma znaczenia, czy mam jakiekolwiek dodatki włączone czy nie mam, efekt jest zawsze taki sam - brak obrazków!!!. Identyczne dodatki oraz identyczne ustawienia jak w "Firefox" mam także w "Opera" i tam wszystko działa.

Po prostu coś zjebaliście mości panowie przy tworzeniu przeglądarki, bo jest ten problem występuje już od kilku ładnych aktualizacji - cały czas.

2. Ponadto drugi problem to taki, że nie życzę sobie, aby Firefox dodawał przy aktualizacji lub instalacji cokolwiek do autostartu windows !!! zawsze będę usuwał wszelkie podprogramy, których sobie nie życzę z autostartu. Wystarczą Wasze gówniane rozszerzenia, których nie można w żaden sposób usunąć a których po prostu nie chcę w przeglądarce (Allegro, DuckDuckGo, Google, Wikipedia(En), Wolne Lektury)... po jaką cholerę to dodajecie?

Pozdrawiam i weźcie się w końcu do roboty!

I just ran "C Cleaner" to clean my computer. At the end, it said to ask the browser if there is a 64 bit Windows compatible version available? It takes 21 seconds to open my browser. That seems like a long time. The message went like this "\??\C:\ Program Files(x86)\MozillaFirefox\firefox.exe" How do I know what version of Firefox I am using?

Hi Since I guess Firefox 99 - not sure ... and now in Firefox 100.0.2 CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y not working when editing in Word Press ...

It is so annoying and make you loose data and waste a lot of time.

I cannot keep saving data all the time - yes I know Word Press has its own data saving etc.

I am talking about a 'normal' operation as CTRL + Z and Y !

I am a keyboard user since the 90s (!) and use loads of shortcuts fast and makes me waste hours sometime.

Any tips, maybe in the About:config settings?

Thank you M

A few days ago Firefox started opening in a small window in the upper left corner of the screen. This problem was earlier also posted by other users. So I have read all these topics and suggested solutions.

This is what I have tried: - removing xulstore.json - compatebility tab in properties - manipulating overlapping squares icon and dragging window to almost full screen - Reinstalling Firfox ( without removing Firefox completely on forehand)

So far nothing resolves this problem.

Please advise

Cannot get out of the terrible firefox print dialog. Literally no one wants this print dialog, it is a waste of time, and does not support all the printer options. I do not want to have to click "print using the system dialog" every time. Please restore the print.tab_modal.enabled = false functionality immediately. Or better yet get rid of your stupid print dialog.

thanks

I use LastPass as a password manager. I found one account where the username is being auto-filled incorrectly even though I have turned off autofill and autologin in LastPass. Also, I have un-clicked "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" in Firefox. It seems like one or both of these should have disabled the little pop-up login window altogether.

I don't know where the incorrect information is coming from. Do you have any wisdom to provide. By the way, I am able to log in by filling in the username manually.

Thank you.

When accessing my Google Drive on Firefox and opening a shared folder containing picture files, the files can only be downloaded, not previewed. This is the case for heic files (I am working on a PC; files were uploaded from an iPhone) and jpg files. The latter can be opened in Google Docs; the former can only be viewed using an outside app. In both cases, the files must be viewed outside the drive. The file previews appear (both on the icons and if the files are double clicked) when opened in Microsoft Edge.
