I used to use Pocket back when it was a simple addon. I used it without ever registering, with syncing disabled.

I only do two things with it: (1) add something to my reading list, and (2) view my reading list and select something to read. I don't want syncing, I do want privacy.

Now that it comes with firefox, seems like there's no option to use it without registering. (Sounds like a regression to me). Or is there?

This past week I started getting the Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue warning when I tried to access my email at Comcast.net. I also got the warning on my banks website when I tried to transfer funds, something I had done many times before. This seems to have started after "upgrading" to version 78.7.1 of FireFox. However, I got the same sort of error using Safari: "Safari can't verify the identity of the website xfinityconnect.email.comcast.net" The certificate shows it is issued by "AVG untrusted CA" from the country "CZ" and State/Province "Brno". Comcast told me to just trust their certificate and I was able to get to my email account, but I am getting the same warning from PNC Bank's website when I try to transfer funds. This REALLY has me worried. Can someone tell me if this is a sign I've been hacked? How can I fix this so I can again transfer funds from my checking account to other banks?

I create bunches of related bookmarks within each folder, each set off by separations. For the first time, I sorted by key words, and when I switched back to site name/my manual sort, all the work was gone. It's all sorted by alpha now. I assume that can't be undone, but I'm holding out hope.

I've had to re-install (restart) Firefox and lost all my add-ons. The add-on list is now VERY LONG and I don't want to spend time looking at each one individually. Is there a way to separate them such as not looking at ones in foreign languages, or putting all that have a similar function in a group?

My address bar is malfunctioning. If an hour ago, I look up 'bicycle', and I then open up a new tab, the address bar will show 'bicycle'. Similarly, if I am on a website, instead of the address bar showing me that site's URL, I get either a previous search term or a previous URL. Highlighting the address bar and hitting 'esc' updates it to the current URL. Please help!

Usually when I open Firefox I have my Optimum homepage. Now I have a folder with a tab that says "New Tab". I contacted Optimum to be sure I had a connection and I do. I was unable to type their address in the bar - it is inactive. Sometimes when I move the cursor around the homepage jumps in but the topics in the line above do not respond. Thank you in advance for your help.

How to contact an addon's developer to report a glitch

The recent update to the Print Edit addon now requires the user to save the edited document before printing. When I select "Print" from the addon task bar, a "downloads" window appears. This is new: previously, a pop-up appeared asking whether or not I wanted to save the edited document. Now, in the current configuration, if I select "Save", I can print my edited document, if I choose to "Cancel" and not save the document, I am unable to print from the "Print Edit" program. I can use the Firefox print option, but the document still must be closed and I get a pop-up reminding me about saving the edited document. Rarely, if ever, have I chosen to save an edited document.

I unsuccessfully tried to find options to adjust preferences within the program and I looked for developer contact information online. If a "fix" to this change is available online, I would like to know where. If not, would the developer please revert to the non-mandatory "save" option.
