Hello how are you? I'm seriously considering switching to Firefox Browser to have more control over my privacy. However, the university makes use of Google Meet and the background is only enabled for Google Chrome and Chromium bases. So, I would like to know if there is how (modification in config, extension) to enable the functions. Thanks!

I'm having a weird issue with Firefox today. When I open a tab it seems to open windows tabs even though everything is containing in a single firefox window.

A simple restart didn't fix it & when I have many tabs open it quickly becomes sensory overload.

Maybe some shortcuts (e.g. Control B) should be disabled by default

Hi, some shortcuts are so generally known and used everywhere and the fact that Firefox intercepts them changing their behavior may be confusing. Let's take Control B for example: it is generally used (e.g. by every online editor or composer, like Gmail ) to set a bold font at the selected text. In Firefox this triggers instead opening bookmarks list, which is highly confusing. Shouldn't this shortcut be disabled by default? Or at least create an extremely evident (e.g. in the welcome page after install) way to disable it. Thank you

Some have reported that the 90.0 update has messed with the Menu Bar text colour. In the "Dark" theme, the tabs are black, the Menu Bar is black and the Menu Bar text is black. I can confirm this on Linux Mint 20.1 and Win 10 21H1. I Also confirmed it to be working correctly on ver 89 for both Mint and Win. I also confirmed that the update for ver 89 turned on automatic updates for Firefox (Linux and Win) without notifiying me that it was changing my settings and ver 90 appears to no longer allow user control of updates.

Also, About Mozilla Firefox, Ver 90.0 (64-bit), says it's for Linux Mint 1.0 Is it possible that this is the reason the Menu Bar is messed-up in the Dark Theme?

An audio ad for Netflix plays numerous times a day. It only happens when I'm using Firefox browser. It's a computerized voice like "Cortana". It's talks over other apps like You Tube and Napster which is very irritating, especially since I'm already a member of Netflix. I'm really sick of hearing it and consider it an invasion of my privacy. I contacted Netflix helpline and they said they knew nothing about it even though it's an ad for their services. Also, nothing shows on my Task Manager when it's playing to help determine it's source. Somebody..........PLEASE HELP!!!!

FBI's suggestion was to start with an IC3 Complaint. I forgot to tell you. They tried to erased the almost 100GB of evidence I have including the 18GB of devastating evidence against them. Well they infected 3 hardware devices I own hoping that I would insert the flash drives with the evidence in the computer and then they can wipe them clean. I lost 75GB but recovered 52GB from a back up scheme I had. Most important: Now I have them in the act of setting up their trap in my computer, plus I have 3 hardware devices infected with their code. One is a USB type A to USB type C adapter by Belkin. they know the whole thing. I spoke to their security all the way to their corporate offices. As you know they're also a defense contractor. The 2nd device is a 3.3 USB reader by SanDisk (Western Digital). I started telling them until they blocked me. So they only know their device was modify to do evil. But I didn't have time to tell them that 2 additional devices suffered the same thing. So, SanDisk thinks they are the only company. The 3rd device is from Kingston it's 3.0 USB card reader but but the time I finished with SanDisk I couldn't communicate with Kingston. Unless the security force from Belkin told them, they are unaware that their device was used for nefarious purposes by MS and GGL (But attempt to abbreviate.) Bottom line I have the dramatic footage of 18GB and 3 hardware devices. of their code. I hope these info gets to you. I have to take a tiny break. I'm sending you these so it won't disappear, And additional items in 45 minutes at the latest. As always, Thank you

After upgrade to firefox 90, I am not able to login in some pages. I use sso with certificate on these pages and Firefox just show this error message: "Error code: SSL_ERROR_CERTIFICATE_UNKNOWN_ALERT".

I also not able to downgrade back to old version because firefox does not want to open with alert that I use older version.

I use firefox on MacOS Mojave and after upgrade Firefox tried to access to my keychain for certificate, but without success. I do not have set my firefox to use my keychain, so I do not know why it tried to access keychain.

So I have to migrade to chrome :(. I wait for a while if there is solution before I delete firefox.

Hello,

I use firefox on the server at work. A lot of bookmarks are there for sites I have to go to for work. When Firefox updated, I can no longer open Firefox. I get an error message saying that I can't open the older version because it can corrupt some bookmarks and instead it says to make a new profile, but the other one has all of my data. I didn't sign in with my personal Firefox, so I have no idea how to get the bookmarks back. Any help is appreciated.

I have used Firefox for years as my browser with the Sitelio Editor for creating blog posts. When Firefox updated to version 90 I could no longer copy text into the editor. I can not find any settings to change to allow the copy to take place. Until I find a way to fix this I am forced to discontinue using Firefox and switch to Chrome. I really do not want to do that.

I had to reinstall Windows because of a blue screen of death I couldn't fix. My firefox and everything else was gone. I want to restore my Firefox tabs. I've clicked on history, manage history, then Import and Backup, then Restore, and then I tried choosing the file from before I had to reinstall, but when I click on that file and click open, I get the message, this will replace all of your current bookmarks with the backup. Are you sure? I click ok, but nothing happens. These are the files in the sessionstore-backups folder: previous.jsonlz4 recovery.baklz4 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210504152106 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210527174632 upgrade.jsonlz4-20210622155641
