I am trying to sign in to my Kirkus account but Firefox refuses to accept my name and password for the account. It insists I need to create a new account. Why?

Is it because I originally signed up with Kirkus via Google Chrome?

I am having a lot of problems with Firefox lately. Not being able to sign in to my bank accounts or to Pay Pal to pay bills.

This is so frustrating that I want to remove Firefox as my home browser. I truly don't know what you are doing now that you didn't do before. I have never had these problems in the past. Pamela J. Brink, RN, PhD Professor emerita

The latest update to Firefox does not allow users to decide which desktop reopened windows appear on

I don't know if I'm the only one having this problem, but after updating Firefox to the most recent version, I cannot decide which desktop my reopened windows appear on. It seems that the windows are preset to reopen on a certain desktop. This is an annoyance to me, and I know that this feature was not always present. Why is that? Thank you.

Viewing code snippets on Slack is broken. I can view code on Microsoft.com fine, and Slack in Edge displays correctly. So, I don't know if it's a Slack or Firefox issue or some combination.

Found a post about checking the monospace font, but that seems fine.

Firefox 94.0.1 (up-to-date).

I've tried disabling all extensions.

Firefox have extremely complicate bookmarks, difficult to create settings and specially to sort. Why? this have no reason to be and this is very simple to resolve. This is the ONLY reason why I do not use Fire Fox as my primary browser. If I have no needs to save bookmark I will use if not, I have different options. WINDOWS developed very effective tool bar since windows 95. With Explorer we all know for many years the tool bar have "File - Edit - View - FAVORITES - Tools - Help" And NOW with "EDGE" Microsoft screwed as usual once they perfected toolbar. Many times I can't find where it was saved. The Settings is a long list of nothing. WHY Firefox do not take opportunity to recreate something similar, after all Microsoft retire theirs Explorer 10 version 21H1 - 19043-1348 The goal is to make easy to use even if technology is "OLD". Sometimes a product was developed years ago so perfect that will stay as "gold standard" Do you want an example that you use everyday without thinking of it? light switch is over 100 years old no changes because is perfect. Thank you for your time in reading my suggestion. Lucas

I had Amazon open while doing something and it accessed my location. I would like to block Amazon from doing this in the future, but I can't find a way to check which websites have this permission. I've tried going to Settings > Privacy & Security > Location Settings, but this only shows one website which has location permissions blocked.

Today I ran into an issue I never experienced before and which I somehow can't fix. Whenever I hit the CTRL button (e.g. for CTRL+F, CTRL+A, CTRL+C, etc.) the zoom is decreased by 10%. Same goes when I use the CTRL button to zoom with the mouse wheel.

I'm using Firefox 94.0.1 (64-bit) under Windows 10

I tried closing the browser and opening it again, restarting the computer and using Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode, but the problem persists. A search in the forum here and on google yielded no relevant results.

Anybody who's got some good advice for me? Thank you very much.

November 9th my browser was having major issues with a PayPal transaction on eBay. At the time, I had two Firefox windows open. One with just one open tab, and another with probably 40-45 open, including my pinned tabs, and this was my primary, always open window.

I finally concluded the purchase and shutdown. The next day I saw that I no longer had my primary window open. No big deal, I went to recently closed windows. However, it did not appear there.

I'm thinking that's because I had to keep closing and relaunching the tiny PayPal window, that it cleared the cache of recent sessions. I am REALLY bummed out about this.

How can I restore this. Tried doing a Windows Restore, but this did not work as it seems to auto re-synch or something. HELP!
