Continual removal of options that were already in the browser for no reason other than contempt for the end user

Yeah, if you guys could stop removing customization options with every update that'd be swell. It's like every time Firefox updates it does something new I hate, and I look for how to change it back and invariably I find that "Oh we DID have the option to put tabs below the address bar but we took that out for literally no other reason than to piss you off" or "We DID have the option to have the address bar not change sizes when you click on it but the end user actually having a say in that was too nice and convenient so we spent time and effort actually removing functionality that was already there and we could have simply left in".

Seriously, just STOP ACTIVELY MAKING THE BROWSER WORSE WITH EACH UPDATE.

I have internet news sites that ask that adblockers be disabled because they allow me to read their articles without paying subscription fees. I have not been able to allow these sites to not be blocked by Firefox but have to go to Microsoft Edge to read these sites. How can I allow these sites permission and avoid being blocked?

Click the button on the webpage, the corresponding pop-up window cannot appear, the prompt in the lower left corner is as shown in the figure. This problem currently only appears on the two purple buttons at the end of the figure, and the other buttons on this page jump normally, how can I solve it? Thanks!:)

So my keyboard came with a pause/play button on it, which for most video and music players works fine, you just press it and it stops or starts. For Firefox though it doesn't work, and I can't find anything about how to get it to work, either in tutorials online or in the settings in Firefox. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

In brief, I lost my master password and had to delete the entire database and start over!!  :-(

Now I'm trying to recreate the thing and it seems to be mixed up (or I am) and I keep running into a half installed and not installed situation..?

The directions say to create a new account, but I already have one (email addr.) and I want to use that same address. I keep running into 'enter master p.w.' (which I don't have) or create one -- which causes a duplicate.!?

It's bad enough I have to recover MANY accounts and their passwords much less have to wrestle with this.!!?

HELP!!!

I just need to get past this nonsense and start typing in data again.

Thanks, Phil

Hi I've been searching for a solution for this problem for quite some time and it is starting to annoy me. Every time I try and search for something instead of using google it switches to yahoo? It didn't do this beforehand. I've seen some solutions on here like doing Ctrl + Shift + a and I've done it but it brings me to a blank tab. It's like whatever it is doesn't want me to remove it. I also tried refreshing Firefox and that didn't help either.

Add-ons in version 79 are not holding their settings.

No script, foxclocks in particular.

Every time I log out & log back in later I have to reset everything.

I don't have time to be resetting the add-ons all the time.

I was using Sync thinking it would be easier but I found it to screw things up worse so I logged out of FF acct..

Is anyone else having issues with add-ons holding their settings in ver. 79.0?

I'm using the firefox pdf viewer on google chrome through this extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pdf-viewer/oemmndcbldboiebfnladdacbdfmadadm

I'm also using another chrome extension that allows me to change the scroll speed of a webpage https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chromium-wheel-smooth-scr/khpcanbeojalbkpgpmjpdkjnkfcgfkhb


Due to a code in the pdf viewer, the scrolling chrome extension won't work on the pdf viewer chrome extension, so I can't change the scrolling speed in the pdf.

Is there code I can change in the pdf viewer that would allow me to either a) change the scroll speed or b) allow the pdf viewer to work with other chrome extensions?

                                            please let me know, I'm eager to hear
