I installed the uBlock Origin add on to stop ads while watching youtube. I restarted the computer. uBlock Origin is in Add Ons, and is switched on. However, I am still receiving ads. First ad is before the clip plays. After 5 seconds, I can end the ad. Second ad is really intrusive. It interrupts the clip. Perhaps I misunderstood the capabilities of uBlock Origin, or how to use it. I would appreciate any recommendations Firefox version on my Windows 7 PC is: 79.0 (64-bit) Thanks.

Hello,

  How do I change my security back to Standard from Strict.  I recently changed it to Strict because I thought there were too many cookies and Ads when browsing.   Now when I got to my websites like Banking and Medical they have to text me a code first to complete the login.

I can't remember what I did or where I was just know it's a pain and need to go back to before.

Thanks, Roni

The results of searches are always dominated by US sites. I live in Ireland and sites from Ireland, Europe generally, Australia, India, Middle East, are more relevant to me. Is there a search term such as "Not US"? I don't want to exclude America totally, just push those results further down the list.

Firefox somehow got corrupted and I had to reinstall. In the process I lost all my bookmarks. I found a number of JSONLZ4 files in an "Old Firefox Data" folder and copied the most recent one to my desktop, then tried to do a restore from it. Nothing. What am I doing wrong? Thanks very much...the loss of my bookmarks is a major catastrophe, any help in getting them back is much appreciated.

When looking for credentials (e.g., password) in Lockwise, is there a way to use a wildcard in the url?

I want to sign on to a financial institution called Fubar Bank. If I search my saved login information for the string fubar, it returns nothing. The problem is that the real url is secure.fubar.com . It seems that Lockwise searches only the leading characters.

eBay displays only as raw HTML. 2nd time this year. Big pain. All other websites I use are OK. Running Mozilla on W7. eBay works fine on Bing. I don't like Bing; but at least there I can meet my buying/selling commitments without a lot of grief. Seems like eBay's techies have used some little feature in their coding that is incompatible with Mozilla and is a minor back burner issue that got patched once and has come back. Except eBay users are a big deal and this is about more than just entertainment. Ed Weldon;

I am using "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" so some links (ones that normally open in new windows) open in tabs in the background instead of immediately getting focus. I am using this functionality for purposes of one specific website. Unfortunately, I do not like this behavior to happen on all websites. I tried turning "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" off and then control+clicking and middle clicking on the links, but this is not working to open them in the background. Is there any other way I can turn off "browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground" but selectively open the links I am using in the background? Perhaps there is a button other than 'control' I can hold while clicking or there is an extension?

Tell me how to reduce the use of RAM by this browser. I'm already tired of closing and opening it a hundred times to free up RAM. If you don't tell me anything, you'll have to delete it ... Other browsers use ten times less RAM than Mozilla
