This morning YOPmail showed up on my windows 10 foxfire as a pinned tab. It claims to be an extension (chrome). Nowhere does anyone say it is malicious...but I want it gone and nowhere is there instructions on how to remove it...I have contacted the dev. we'll see...

It is my business computer and I don't like software, apps, code, extensions or add-ons that i cant get rid of.

Any help would be appreciated.

When I chose ebay.com the cursor in the tab just keeps going back and forth but never completes the page sign on. After 3 days of the same result, I tried using MS Edge and it worked loading the sign on page and I put in my ID and PW but it sensed I was a "new" computer and wanted me to call ebay to process the "new" computer usage. I didn't want to change to Edge, so I just stopped the process and chose to write to you to get FF "fixed" to keep using as usual.

I have note as have MANY others that bookmarks do not hold their place and randomly revert to the top of the list when the list is reacquired.

There have now been several updates to Firefox without a fix to this problem that requires immediate attention.

WHY hasn't this been addressed when many have complained about it?

Please respond!

Hi Guys thank you for your time and effort that you voluntary offer to support Mozilla Firefox. I have been a lifelong user of Firefox. I have during this process lost 4 x laptops (over a span of 20 years) - reformatted the current one twice. My mistake - I neglected to backup Firefox.

I cannot and do remember what my primary Firefox account was. Their are bookmarks and saved passwords on it that I desperately need. Can you please help what what to do?

I have subscribed to new a [edited] @gmail.com primary account to to use Firefox again. I help with serial numbers, brand of the laptops that I have used in the past.

If you can help, please please help.

I have a problem only on one website (Ancestry.com). One of the pages there isn't loading. This has only happened since updating Firefox which I did yesterday or Friday. I have contacted Ancestry and the problem isn't their end. I was told they have had numerous customers who use Firefox experiencing the same problem. Their advice was to contact Firefox but there doesn't seem to be a way to speak to anyone, or to reinstall Firefox. I am nervous of deleting and reinstalling because I am not at all computer savvy and I'm worried about losing all my bookmarks and passwords. I would really appreciate someone taking me through this in baby steps and plain English. Imagine you are helping your 90 yr old granny who doesn't know the tech terms!

Many thanks

Once again the failure of Firefox to work with comment sections of many websites has reared its head in the latest update of Firefox. I'm using Windows 11 with latest updates. This occurred suddenly in the middle of commenting. Other web browser are OK. These constant recurring problems with Firefox are getting tiresome and although I like the browser and am comfortable using it, I'm seriously considering abandoning it for these annoyances.

Hi all -

Lately as part of organizing my life I have had two Firefox windows open, a work one and a personal one.

If I switch back and forth fairly frequently, things seem to function alright. But if I spend too many days only in the "work" window, I lose the ability to use the "personal" window (or vice versa). I can see it and click on it in the "Window" menu, but then nothing happens.

I tried Bookmarking All Tabs to see if I could close Firefox and then re-open the window using the bookmarks, but no functionality appears to be accessible for that window. If I restart Firefox once it will dutifully reopen the ghost window (ie. I can see it in the Windows menu but not access it). Restarting windows again loses the window completely.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is the only solution just to keep "checking in" on the other window, even if I'm only using one of them for a few days?

Thanks in advance, K

Hello,

I can't access my account anymore, this one was created by linking the mail address used for the account which apparently i never did. I tried every password i commonly used and none of them worked, so I think that this one was auto-generated and then saved, in my firefox account... What is really killing me is the 7 years of bookmarks and password that are locked behind this password, i can access the account by password recovery but that would defeat the purpose since I just learned that its linked to my data. I just changed my OS back to windows so file recuperation is gonna be a pain/impossible. The way i understand things i have to make my peace with all the websites I accumulated for years (and also the PWs) or wait and don't touch my PC because the firefox folder that was deleted was on the same HDD that i used for the new OS. Of course all of this wouldn't be a problem if I didn't have had a problem to my phone and send it back to the constructor for the warranty, which means if I'm not mistaken that my account just lost it's last link to me, except the auto-destruction button. Is starting to learn cryptography my best bet to reach my account ? Or is there something I didn't cover and there still a way ? Please tell me it's still possible.

So, migrating after more than 10 years in chrome I'm currently struggling with the function that completes a webpage while you type (it happens in some webpages, not all). For instance, if I start typing "www.itau", firefox doesn't fill with a known webpage (www.itau.cl). This behaviour is different for, say, typing "www.sa", in wich case firefox fills the missing letters to (www.santander.cl).

I've tryed to delete the suggestion "www.itau" from the address bar with shift + delete, but this isn't a webpage suggestion, so it does nothing.

I'm leaving two screenshots to show.

Sorry for any spelling error, english ain't my main language.

I've been using firefox desktop pretty much since its inception. Despite numerous updates, for well over a year it has been auto scrolling when on facebook and I have tried every fix it to no avail (I'm highly computer literate and to me, this is now nuts). Note. My android mobile has never done it. I am at the end of my tether and am now looking at moving to another browser due to the frustration. I've gone through all the forums and note there are hundreds (if not thousands) of people with the same problem. Why can you not fix this and is there a fix? I don't want to, but I will move to another browser if I cannot get a satisfactory answer. Regards, Paul Mack. [email removed from public]

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.
