I just purchased a MeLe Quieter2. It was loaded with some version of Windows 10. I downloaded Ubuntu to a removable storage device (thumb drive?) and want to download the Ubuntu Operating System to my MeLe mini. I really want to avoid "bricking" my mini desktop at all costs. My ultimate goal is to have my mini totally Linux oriented with Firefox as my browser and removing all Windows software, all Google apps, all social media and anything else that wants to market to me, demand my location and generally futz up my system. Can anyone help?

I have to use a specific page for work and the users have a google analytics monitor on their control panel. Even if I have deletes cookies on all pages related to the control panel it still wont show. I have even reset firefox, but it still won't show up.

If I use incognito browser it comes up, but when using my regular firefox it is still stuck on the old page (as my old profil picture shows up). I've even deleted everything, but still stuck on old page.

Using Firefox 96.0.3 on my iMac: FFx used to remember any website I would type in the URL box. Recently had to erase cookies (and I think History, as well). Now, if I type in a website's complete addres in the URL box and visit that site, next time I go to visit it, it does not come up as auto-complete like it used to. I've checked my History prefs, looked at the URL options about:config, and been through the FAQ and searched the help topics, but have not seen a solution. What can I do to get this feature working again?

Since the latest update my screen comes up black background with white writing (DARK theme). Even changing theme and saving, bookmarks, history etc still have black background. If I shut FF and restart it, everything defaults to DARK theme. Hard to read and annoying. Is this a bug or how can I change permanently? Regards, Richard Ferguson.

The current version of Firefox (96.0.3) now insists on displaying a banner ad advertising everything else that Mozilla offers.

Here's a hint for the folks at Mozilla -- I won't use any of those products because you insist on pestering me with the stupid ad in the one Mozilla product that I do put up with despite its numerous faults.

For a considerable period of time now Firefox would seem to continue to have problems being able to load Facebook - Marketplace product images. All other browsers I use to access Facebook - Marketplace have no problems at all. Firefox is now getting to point that I can no longer use it as my number one browser, which is very sad indeed.

Dear Team Volunteer,

Loaded Firefox Ver. 93.0.3 (64Bit) onto a rebuilt machine, using Windows 10 64bit, but often upon loading it tries, often unsuccessfully, to load past pages instead of my home page. What's up?? Why is it trying to remember, a setting I have accidentally turned on? Removing previous tabs lets me start new. Did not do this on old machine, unless power or I shut down by accident.

I sign into FF. I have "Never remember History" selected in my settings, and I'm running is Strict Privacy mode, but every time I open a tab and the Pocket page appears - at the top of the page are icons of some sites I have visited in the past. How can that be disabled so History is not remembered ?

Noticed recently firefox looses windows on startup. Set to restore on bootup, but quite frequently Firefox looses a whole window, each with several panes. eg I'm lazy and will have an ebay window, each pane different, watchlist and others with items I'm looking to buy, saves me ticking all the little boxes. Another window might be nas boxes, each pane being a nas box. Then a general window fo bowsing news etc. Noticed on startup a whole window vanishes with all its panes. Not an accidental click on close window, since get a warning if I do that because of multiple panes.

The browser was working fine up to a few months ago but I didn't start looking into the issue until now

Youtube works fine but twitter, facebook and netflix don't load with error messages like "The media could not be played" and "Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video."

I've tried different browsers and they work fine on chrome but not on Opera GX

I'm on windows 10 pro, so I don't have the issue with the N versions

Things I've looked at:

  • My internet connection is fine;
  • Firefox is up to date;
  • Cache and cookies have been cleared;
  • Add ons/extensions have been disabled;
  • Autoplay has been disabled and then also tested with it enabled;
  • Hardware acceleration was disabled;
  • Firefox was restarted;
  • I even downgraded to an older version

There are times when my browser doesn't let me close tabs. Whenever that happens, clicking on the X button does nothing and I've noticed that, when I try that, another layer of buttons appears briefly just over the Firefox window resizing and closing buttons; as if a new screen layer of unknown origins is blocking my actions. Closing the window, however, works normally.

This problem happens randomly and I have no idea what's causing, but it's getting annoying. How can I fix that?
