I am notified an update is ready to download and I click. Firefox than goes unstable. Hour glass blinking and jumping around. To stop it I must restart the computer. After restarting, I must go to test compatibility. After running that it will run fine with the new update. This started after 72.0 came out.

Is it a bug or a design decision. I mean if I have a lot of opened tabs and I intend to close just one tab, then a slight delay in releasing the key combination would result in closing rest of the tabs. Shouldn't it be like Press and Release key combination to perform the corresponding action which would ensure the action is performed just once. That is what it was like on Chrome and Edge.

Ich sende Ihnen gern einen langen Bericht mit allen Informationen. Allerdings nur wenn mich jemand dazu persönlich auffordert, zum Beispiel mit einer email oder SMS . Warum erst dann ? - Weil auch ich meine Zeit nicht gestohlen habe. Weil ich mir die Arbeit nur dann mache , wenn ich daran glaube oder vermuten kann , daß meine Informationen auch gelesen werden.

after the panic subsided, I contacted all 8 of the sites listed which of course I could not remember a single PW, and only 1 Site Admin was ready and willing to help me - thank you Cafe Press ! Part of my situation is that two of my three former email addresses were dropped when AOL bought Verizon's EMail Division and only let us bring 1 suitcase per person. Trouble is, the other two addys were sub accounts, one was a Business Account so much of the info was quite detailed but the same. But these days, data breaches are so comon (yawn?) it's almost not shocking. But 8 ? Yikes. Here's the thing, I thank you for the alerts, but you scare me to death then leave me hanging. I have no idea which 5 sites had the same PW (huh ?). I supposed over 20 years online and at 2500 logins, at some point my brain ran out of creative unique login's. I use a Password Program but it doesn't catch 3 email addresses that may share a common PW. Any suggestions how to "Resolve" those breaches which I can barely remember where I've left my britches ? Thanks. 5/2500 = .002 % P.W.s repeated , not the worst odds in the world. Spread that % over a 22 year span, the equation is so low there is an "e" in the final outcome !

Every day I search for something or other and discover mid-search that I'm using that loathsome stupid brain dead Yahoo search engine. I keep trying to set my preferences and they keep reverting. Don't give me a long complicated procedure to fix the problem, fix it yourself. Get rid of Yahoo or get rid of me. I'll start using Chrome or Safari or Opera. Lots of competition. Incompetence doesn't last long. Goodbye stupid Firefox.

Still get an error message and it will not load the site. this is the error message: Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at www.portlandpeoplescoalition.org. Other sites work fine on the firefox browser. where else can I look for the problem on this computer (Dell laptop).

distinction would be OK - but bright blue - at least give the option to change the color. It hurts my eyes. I don't really understand anymore why everytime there is an update, more and more customizations are eliviated. Maybe it's finally time to leave Mozilla. Nothing but pain since a long time.

This may not mean much to the mozilla crew - but it is utter annoyance to me and time consuming to "fix" after every update.I look at that screen all day, every day, and - yes, I dare to customize it so it is easier for me to work. Just one example, and I am not alone at this: every time after an update the tab bar is moved up, which does not make sense to people that use it all day long. The 71. update was even worse, not even a space left for it anymore. Resulting again, as always go back to chrome css, trying to get the stuff back one works with all the time.

It just by now is too cumbersome to already know that something will again brake or be eliminated with the next update. I have weathered mozilla since it's inception. But am just tired of always having to adjust the same things, yet needing a different css line again.

Hey all,

Firefox is blocking images in my Gmail (Screenshot 1). Red is where images usually are. This isn't happening in Chrome and it's happening on Firefox on another computer when I log in to my Gmail account. I think the culprit is Enhanced Content Blocking, as you can see in the second screnshot where it says it's blocking 3 images. I have white listed Gmail from Enhanced Content Blocking but it still will not stop blocking those images. I have:

- cleared cache - updated firefox to newest version - uninstalled and reinstalled - restarted computer - refreshed firefox - turned off uBlock Origin and all other add-ons - tried in private mode

A coworker that usually uses Chrome downloaded a fresh install of Firefox and it worked fine for him.

I noticed an error by off-chance while using Facebook. I clicked a link which lead to a site I've visited before... but. The moment I clicked it went to the Tab screen. Brought my other tab to the home screen. When I tried to go forward, back or type in new address it would not let me do anything. I shut down PC through power button. Turned back on and let me browse as normal. Did a scan, have found no virus or malware.

Sadly, i don't have an error report to give and I couldn't inspect the elements to see if something was messing with it. As it would just continuously reset my page screen. This is the first time this has happened.

On the Privacy and Security page, when I press the Settings button next to Autoplay, the screen freezes for a few seconds but never pops up a box to allow me to change settings. All the other Settings buttons on that screen work fine. This is on a WIndows 10 Pro 1903 machine, currently running Firefox 72.0.2 I tried disabling the few Add-ons I have, but that didn't help. I cleared my cache but still no luck. I am running Avast, but I don't see why that would prevent this one Settings button from working. I have long been a fan of Firefox, and used to run FlashBlock when that add-on was still available. I'd like to find something similar now.
