I want to view and verify what my Firefox Account password is, currently, without having to change it necessarily. Once I've verified what my password is currently, I may, or may not, change it. I will not decide if I want to change my password until I know what it is currently.

Thanks bunches Darlins and Gents for all your fine help!

I recently had to uninstall and re-install Firefox to deal with a software conflict issue. I then reset all of my preferences, including using www.google.com as my homepage. Before the re-install, private browsing tabs opened as a different, darker color theme than regular tabs, and they opened on the Firefox home page. Now, they open on the same Google home page as the regular tabs and are the same color as regular tabs, which can be confusing. How do I get back to a darker-theme private browsing tab? Thank you.

<start rant>I see that all the menus have disappeared from firefox in the top of the window on my PC since a couple of years now. This is such an annoying "improvement".

The worst thing is - it keeps getting more and more difficult to open them with each successive "improvement" you make.

I actually use firefox for my job, not to watch tiktok videos or browse facebook or watch inane people do inane things on instagram.

Heads up , you developers. To be able to "do" things with your freaking software you need to be able to "click" on easily accessible drop-down menus.

So, why don't you give us stupid users the option to always have menus displayed the whole freaking time? Then, if some of us are backward enough to want to click on menus to do stuff, then we can still do that ! </end rant>

My sneaking suspicion is that you guys don't want us to control where we go on the internet at all. You want double click to tell us what we need to see and do and then you all earn $$$$.

I noticed under "Add ons" section of "Troubleshooting information" that several extensions (namely "Google - google@search.mozilla.org") are enabled by default. I have removed Google from my search options and I cannot find a way to disable or remove it in under "Add-ons" section of main menu as it doesn't show up there. Is there a way to remove it (and Amazon and Bing while we're at it)?

I am using the latest MX Linux Distro and Firefox 85. I am trying to setup sync with my phone so I can access all my bookmarks and such on my phone. It pops up with a QR code to scan in the Firefox on the phone but it would never scan. After a closer look at the QR code, it is cut off at the bottom and there seems to be nothing I can do to get around that. Endless searches make it out that I am the only one having this problem.

I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox, a bug in the interface, a bug somewhere else, or what. I just want to make it work. Thank you.

I set this up Firefox up first on about the 14th -- no problem with e-mail. My mail and other shortcuts have disappeared and don't want to re-import from Edge or the older program. I don't want to sync it, just get the e-mail and find time to install a software that doesn't want to install, but has nothing to do with Firefox. I have been trying all afternoon and don't have any recourse but to go back to Windows if I can't get this resolved.

I have an existing problem because this computer was new a year ago and came with a free Office Max 1 year tech service. They remapped both the browser and this desktop and could not get it so I could access my files from both computers and save on this one. We were going thru my daughter's cancer, husband's stroke and my arm surgery and I couldn't come downstairs often. Finally called them one last time and seemed to work, but next day was a mess and I couldn't even get on the internet. I did get that straightened out and moved to Firefox. Worked fine until we had a storm and Microsoft got in on the reset after the snow storm. Now Firefox won't let me have my mail on this computer without syncing -- has always worked fine. Actually if I send a file to myself that is too big, it just went into the sent box and when I could get downstairs I could open it, work on it and send back the same way.

I do have a friend who can help me reset the computer when this covid thing is over and he has time to get here as he is quite busy with Boeing computers and our church computers-- I'm afraid to reset the computer without being sure all my card and WP programs are saved and will work. In the meantime, if I can just get this darn e-mail set up, I'll be satisfied.

I'm surprised that a community-based web developer would flood its users with constant messages. I'm referring to when I open Firefox for Windows, and constantly receive message banners at the bottom of the browser. You'd half expect it from a commercial web developer, but even they refrain from doing that.

Please stop this practice as it's very annoying and distracting. Perhaps a menu option for "Suggestions" where the user may opt to view such messages is a better idea than thrusting them constantly on the user.

In better news, I've noticed Firefox is a faster, less clunky browser than it has been in the past - good work :)

I am getting a message on a yellow banner on various websites, most recently the New York Times, that reads:

A webpage is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do? Stop it, Wait.

An image is attached. If I select Stop It it sometimes goes away and sometimes comes back. It has recurred over several logins to the Times and it is very annoying as it impedes the fast loading of the webpage content and slows any activity. I would like to know how to permanently get rid of it.
