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!?

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

Hello. I would like to block all media from autoplaying in firefox. In my web searches, I'm constanly finding things like " Up until version X.XX you could do this, but they changed it and it doesn't work anymore." My question is, Why can't you put a workin set of media blocking tools in, AND THEN LEAVE THEM ALONE ??????

Why doe it ALWAYS have to be "They CHANGED IT AND IT DOESN'T WORK ANYMORE ?????

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

Updated to latest versions, PC is restated daily, Firefox uses 6GB of RAM, default performance preferences are turned on, cashe is regularly emptied. But still, it has long latency time between mouse clock and response, scrolling down the page results in grey block at the bottom and I have towait for the contet to load, same with tabs, they are greyed out and a loadin circle is showing for a lot of time.

PC is 2yo, i7-4910MQ, RAM 32GB running on 960GB SSD.

Any ideas other than default "clear cashe"?

If I have many windows open in Firefox, is there a way to sort them in the windows pull-down menu. Right now they aren't sorted alphabetically or anything. Wondering if I can grab them to re-arrange or if I'm just stuck with the random order they are in.

Thanks

Not sure if it matters but using Firefox 81.0 on a Mac.

I am horrified at your abandonment of the master password. The political correctness is off the charts at Mozilla. You destroyed a great browser, and people are turning away from your leftist derangement syndrome. Here's what elimination of things with the word MASTER in them does:

A young boy can no longer be addressed by the title MASTER as in Master Lord Fauntleroy.

Well-known and brilliant pianists and other world-renown musicians can no longer give MASTER CLASSES to students.

The circuit breaker in your electric box that shuts off your home's power completely can no longer be called the MASTER BREAKER.

The company called MASTER LOCK must close its doors or declare bankruptcy.

Chess aficionados with the highest of world rankings can no longer be called grand MASTERS.

A criminal or civil court can no longer rely upon the expertise of Special MASTERS.

The MASTERS Golf Tournament needs to be terminated.

Masters University in Santa Clarita, CA must be closed forever.

Masters degrees in all disciplines must be eliminated. You go for the Ph.D., or you get nothing and like it.

If you want the very best bottle of wine for that special anniversary, forget getting advice from a MASTER sommelier.

Want a pair of the very best concert tickets....forget it, no Ticket MASTERS.

Garage door broken? No more Lift-MASTER!

Want a professional Barbecue grill...no more MASTER-built stainless grills.

Destroy your brand new Sony MASTER SERIES flat screen TV with a ball peen hammer. It's racist.

Better move your bed into the kid's bedroom; No more MASTER bedrooms.

Forget being able to stop your car; we need to get rid of the brake system's MASTER Cylinder.

No more Cooler-MASTER Intel I7 and I9 processor fans. Video game freaks, no more overclocking!

Only jacks-of-all-trades need apply, no MASTERS of ONE permitted!


DO YOU LEFTIST SEE HOW STUPID THIS IS?

I am black, and even I think you people are SICKOS!!!!!!!
