2 or 3 weeks ago I started noticing a problem when editing the Wikipedia using the code editor interface with my firefox browser: I can't read some letters and special signs such as "ç" (very used in catalan, my mothertongue), "í", etc.

It never hapened me before and I don't know how to solve it. I tried reseting firefox but it didn't work. Hope someone could give me a solution, thanks.

On my main PC (which is currently down) when I view most streaming videos or MP4 there is a sub menu in the upper left corner which allows me to go back or forth 10 seconds at a time, slow or speed up.

On my laptop it is not there.

Both are Win 10 home, latest FF.

Is this part of FF? And if it is, how do I get it going on my laptop?

I was surprised yesterday when opening Firefox to receive a gift proposal (a samsung smartphone) as a faithful user & asked to fill up a questionary and pay $1 with my creditcard details to receive the gift, which I didn't do. Is it usual to receive such a proposal ? Was it really coming from Firefox ? Thank you

If you go to https://jobs.medtronic.com/ using Firefox and try to search for a job, nothing happens. The job search works just fine with Microsoft Edge. I've had issues with other company job search sites as well. This problem only started since the last FireFox update and yes, I've tried disabling the new tracking protection, but the problem is still there.

Hello. I recently updated my GMail account password and updated its Firefox bookmark. But in the list of stored bookmarks, I see both accounts with their update dates. But they are always the same account, and not 2 different. I would like to clean up the bookmark list by removing the older one. How should I do?

Hello,

I am quite frustrated. I have been working on solving two issues for a very long time. My brain is a little disabled but I still have to solve all problems myself. Please help me if you can.  The issues are:

1. with settings on password remembrance. I get logged out of many websites that claim that everything is right with their set up. On some websites I am not getting logged out.

 The settings I have tried in Firefox (latest version both on Windows 10 and on Android 9) has been "never clear cookies" , "clear cookies after each session" with exceptions for all the current websites.  I have allowed everything.  If this issue derives from the websites setup they would have had many more complains than mine. That´s why I have to turn to Mozilla. 

2. I run Firefox on windows 10 and on Android. Isn´t the browser meant to sync on website content like the above mentioned ? Logins and other data left on each websites from previous login ?

If I get help from the forum I will definitely donate to Mozilla. /Gechen

The only choices given for opening new tabs is either the FireFox page or a blank page. We USED TO be able to set it for what WE wanted, rather than what YOU want. I want to be able to (again) set it so any new tabs opened, come up with my choice, Google.com, rather than the two choices you have chosen. I realize that "changes" are what keeps programmers (I useta was one) employed, but how about programming what your loyal users want? That used to be the case, but now, it seems the "changes" are just done to keep said programmers employed! I am hardly the only one who bemoans the loses we have gone through as someone (who probably doesn't even use FF!) makes it look like they want instead of how we want. Nuff said?

Thank you for years of enjoyable use. Now why not start providing that again?

Firefox Support: I am 80-years old, and use a land line. 360 894-6326. I do not have a cell phone. I have been using Firefox, and Aol for a good number of years. I do not use most bells and whistles or ‘Social Media’ accounts, and I cannot click a picture of a code from the screen. Recently, I purchased a new Laptop, which required using a Microsoft ‘Outlook Account’ the previous account Walter6326@Outlook.com ‘Password’ was not recognized, I tried to change it many times filling out the ‘form’ provided, which did not request simple information which could identify me, instead the ‘team’ said they would get back in 24-hours. They did, and indicated I didn’t provide enough information to identify me.

After a number of attempts in which ended up now creating: Butch6326@Outlook.com, I was able to get the other Laptop to work, except in using one then the other some of my destinations do not recognize the last password, and I have to have a code or some such sent to Aol.com to verify that I am me. I created yet another account with Webmail.fairpoint.net ‘Phillwa2@fairpoint.net’, however 'fix it' codes sent to that account do not get there. I have synced both computers with Firefox, and it appears that it is working. In this day and age it seems impossible to actually talk to a person in which such problems could be resolved in short order. I would appreciate some direction.

Hello, I use a popular website hrca.net (Hornby Railways Collectors Association). Since about 12th February this year attempted access just times out saying the site is busy or down. I get the same problem using other browsers. Firefox flags a certificate/name/address error warning which can be bypassed but not very convenient and possibly unsafe. The owner of the website asked me to try the IP address as a test and it works perfectly. Why is Firefox suddenly flagging this problem after 6 years of using this site without any issues? The website owner says no other users have reported any problems. There are 2000+ users. I have tried clearing the cache, disabling add-ons and resetting Firefox. Using CMD tracert I have discovered the IP address called by hrca.net on my laptop is not the same as the one supplied by website owner. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
