The news website https://www.news.com.au/, if you go to any story, if you scroll more than a certain way down, then an irritating divider opens up at the bottom, and slides up.

It's always titled "More In ...."

You can click for it to go down again, but if you open 10 webpages you end up doing this 10 times, which after a while is more than a little irritating.

We have popup blockers, blockers that stop videos from auto-starting, but I'm not even clear what this 'feature' is called, let alone how to disable it short of giving up on this website.

Any suggestions?

Pocket (which I turned OFF) grabs ALL my bookmarks so I have to edit them into my bookmarks list; can I completely disable it?

Pocket was OK for a while, but about a week or so ago it started taking the URL whenever I clicked on Bookmarks in the Firefox menu (on a Mac running 10.12.6). I keep my bookmarks organized in a folder structure, so this makes me go back to the Bookmarks menu and choose Edit This Bookmark. I changed the value given in the instructions to disable it to FALSE as instructed, and restarted Firefox just in case. BUT it still acts the same way, grabbing the Bookmarks. I don't WANT Pocket. If anyone can tell me how to get it to stop working I would really appreciate it. Thank you for any help.

I have a new macPro - no problem. I have an older macpro that I my grandkids use for games, and I use occasionally to check email, weather, etc. The new update says Firefox will "protect" me from using the outdated browser... Since I don't really see any advantage to me and this last bit is a serious disadvantage to me, I am leaning towards skipping the update. Problem?

Hi All, After bringing up Firefox I click on the menu button in the right hand corner. After it drops down I click on the button for full screen and it doesn't go into full screen. I still see the tabs at the top. I have tried a couple things that helped in the past but it didn't help this time. If someone could give me a few options as to why it is ding this I would be really grateful. Once I have that information I can figure out what I should do.


                                                 Thank You very much  and have a good day.

All sites except support.mozilla.org and accounts.firefox.com do not work in my main profile. When entering an address or calling from a favorite, the tab remains blank and the loading indicator always works. No site elements (even a title) appear. Even the web panel of my router (LAN) does not load. Others profiles work fine. History is important for me. So I don't want to clean it.
