Yesterday an IT guy from my job did some work on my computer to reinstall my document camera (I'm a teacher) which wasn't working for some reason. After he finished, I noticed that my bookmark toolbar is no longer visible on my browser. I cannot find anything selected that would remove it. Any idea why that would be?

This latest update has broken so many websites for me. I can't see areas of most of the websites I visit, getting a "You are not connected securely to this site" notice even though there's a certificate when I check and it's always for a different reason. One unsecure image or one unsecure content warning or something along those lines and it's driving me nuts! I can't use a private window because I can't sign into any sites with the private window. All I get is the spinning, working on it thingy.

There was a place where I could whitelist sites to override this problem but now I can't find it and if I can't do something about this, will have to use a different browser, which I don't want to do. Can someone give me an idea here on what to do to bypass this? I've trusted these sites for years. They didn't just all go rogue the minute this update came through!

I'm on Windows 10

Hi there,

Every time I log in to gmail.com I need to enter my email address and then password, both manually.

The password is one of those super secure computer generated type.

I keep a copy of course, but is there a means by which I can have both these references ready to go please?

Thank you

johnny

Message I get is "Secure connection failed". I go to help-->troubleshoot-->refresh. It usually works once then next time it is the same. I've tried troubleshoot-->troubleshoot but that doesn't help either, I end up refreshing and then back to square one. Appreciate your help to a non-techie.

I have no issue with Facebook when using chrome but when I use firefox (which is my main browser) there is nothing but issues. Even trying to report a problem to mozilla through browser, you get the run around. I used to love the browser but it just seems to be getting worse and worse, hell I would rather use internet explorer than the rubbish mozilla has bought out. This isn't first issue I have had, I have had passwords/bookmarks lost with the stupid sync after a fresh install but I stuck through it. I hardly use facebook anymore because of the issues they have but when I do use it, it's nothing but a headache so I use chrome just to post something or comment.

My firefox browser has been slow for a couple of weeks now. I've deleted many add-ons. I'm getting tried of fighting it. I search or click any thing and it takes forever. Most times it doesn't look like it's responding, but if I wait a few minutes it responds.

For the last few days, when opening Firefox browser, instead of opening to my homepage, it brings me to what looks like a page for programming data and what looks like a computer generated script being typed that usually says" a variance is a difference between...." or something similar and then glitches and the main page then shows up on screen. Its not doing it all the time, but once or twice a day. It started after the last Windows security update last week that was an "urgent" download from Microsoft.

Just thought I would let you know as it seems your security may have a glitch. It happens too fast to get a screen shot or I would include one. Cheers, B.MacDonald

Hello! Firefox is now controlling the volume of my system via a volume fader that appears in the upper left corner of my screen. Also because of this- I can no longer use "control" button and my mouse to expand any images. In short- Firefox has taken over total control of my mouse. Hoping you can help get this back to normal! Thank you!

I have a lot of plugins. If I disable some plugins and enable them only when they're needed, will that reduce the burden they impose on every tab? Besides removing a bunch is there another solution? Would multiple virtual screens with different functionality (eg, one for word processing, another for graphics, etc) help?

Greetings...

I've encountered some websites that include a small graphic icon that appears to the side, usually at the 4 or 5 o'clock position, and remains stationary when the the webpage is scrolled. Customarily, the graphic icon leads to either a help feature or a chat feature when selected.

Unfortunately, this small graphic icon is intrusive and appears in any screen captures of the webpage on which it appears. Is there any way within Firefox that I can disable this graphic icon from appearing when I access the website?

I've tried selecting the graphic icon to see if there was an option to disable it from appearing, but no such option was available.

Please advise. Thank you!

With the new 96/0 update that was installed 1/11/2022 I can no longer run any videos or stream on channels that I was able to do so yesterday. What is going on???? I am getting File Failed to load error on all of them but this is not occurring on other browsers. Seems only related to Firefox.
