The news website https://www.news.com.au/, if you go to any story, if you scroll more than a certain way down, then an irritating divider opens up at the bottom, and slides up.

It's always titled "More In ...."

You can click for it to go down again, but if you open 10 webpages you end up doing this 10 times, which after a while is more than a little irritating.

We have popup blockers, blockers that stop videos from auto-starting, but I'm not even clear what this 'feature' is called, let alone how to disable it short of giving up on this website.

Any suggestions?

When I use Bing Images and I click on an image that I have selected I have in the past been able to click on that image to view the enlarged version of it in one tab but now it incorrectly opens two tabs instead of one. This does not happen in Chrome or Edge. Now if I use the menu that has "view image" below the image it will not open two tabs but correctly open one tab to view enlarged version. Please see screenshots with captions. This has never happened with earlier versions of Firefox.

Thank you, Don

Hi everybody, As website owner my convern comes after mozilla is blocking tracking by default meaning that google ads cannot be served by default, only if users will choose so. Most of the mozilla users don't even know what tracking means, so the chances of choosing to allow tracking and serve ads are very low. Many websites owners use adsense ads to pay for their servers/hosting, their hard work, etc. and as you know every visitors is comsuming resources and bandwidth, so my questions is: Why webmasters shouldn't block mozilla users since the chances to generate revenue thru ads is very low, to none? I get that it's a great feature to the user, but should be an option rather than a default setting? If webmasters choose to block mozilla users, there will be a lot of users who can't access a specific information and they don't even know the cause.

When I generate a new set of Recovery Codes for my Sync account, are the old ones still usable? Or just the latest generated set is valid?

It is not very clear in the Sync preferences how it works.

When you activate the second factor for logins, there is an option to generate Recovery Codes which are different every time. I just want to know what happens with the previous unused ones once you generate a new set.

Thanks!

Edit: updated for clarity.

After allowing Firefox to do a refresh, and losing my bookmarks as a result, I followed the instructions I found elsewhere in this forum to restore the bookmarks. I successfully located the backup file, and I can get all the way through converting the *.jsonlz4 file to *.html, but when I try to import the *.html file through the library menu, nothing happens, and nothing changes. I can open the *.html file locally, and see a list of my bookmarks, and they are functional, but the are not incorporated or saved back into Firefox. The address bar looks like this:

file:///C:/Users/kwilliams/Desktop/bookmarks_from_json.html

Is there a way to re-incorporate the bookmarks? At this point, I am faced with clicking on each link on the html list and creating new bookmarks one entry at a time.

Hi everyone, wonder if you can help with a problem I have on website form I wanted to support a project on kickstarter and was unable to enter my card details into the website form Only the 'Cardholder Name' field was available, all others greyed out Kickstarter support suggested it must be the Firefox browser and encouraged me to use Chrome. I could not find any help on the Mozilla support site, and I do not think Chrome is particularly good at users security so I loaded Vivaldi and to my surprise everything worked OK I assume I must have a security setting somewhere in Firefox that is blocking the Kickstarter site for some reason and wonder if anyone has any ideas? I do not get any problem with "usual" websites like shopping sites, ebay etc.
