I currently use Google as my search engine, and every time I use it I get a rash of unwanted advertising crap at the head (top) of the search results. I know I can update my "interests" preferences in Google to "target" the ads, but I want to get rid of these pesky nuisances altogether.

I was using Google SE on Firefox 77.0.1 for months, with any advert in results (always started with Wikipedia's article on search topic), but now there are intrusive ads results first.

Why?

I absolutely hate Lockwise, I really want the classic password manager list window that allows me to select groups of passwords at once for editing / deletion etc.

I had this turned off before in about:config, but at the 77.01 update it got turned back on.

Soemtimes, when I open Firefox (77.0.1), or do a search, a microsoft edge popup occurs. Attached are two screenshots showing it. I have checked everything under permissions. I even went into IE 11 and set to highest security and popups. Still the popup rears its ugly head. I appreciate any advise. Thanks.

Hi.

I have bought a new laptop and have installed the Firefox browser but have forgotton my Firefox password. The password reset email from Firefox does not render as HTML; the email just presents as plain text. So, I cannot see the password reset link.

I saw a 'hack' that suggested copying and pasting the email text into Notepad and save as a *.eml file but Notepad doesn't have the *.eml option. I'm on Windows 10.

Any ideas how to resolve this issue.

Many thanks.

When you open a new tab a "snippet" is shown at the bottom of the page. According to the preferences this is for "Updates from Mozilla and Firefox".

Now I'm starting to see messages about how I can fight racism and how I should be proud of who I am.

Is there a way to limit the messages to things that are actually related to Firefox? I want to see important technical updates. I see enough political statements everywhere else.

When I want to print a page of Firefox I get the response: "Firefox is blocking popups". When I try to change this, I get the mask for exception, but only for websites, not for things like printing. Why do I need a popup to print, why can't I define printing as exception?

Is CCleaner cookie destruction redundant for Firefox users with the right settings?

Is the cookie clearing function of CCleaner 100% redundant for those who use only Firefox as a browser and choose settings that delete all or nearly cookies when the browser closes? Ideally, I would like to dispense with CCleaner for cookie clearance and depend only on my Firefox browser settings for that. [The various other functions of CCleaner, and its overall value, are not part of my question.]

[Firefox won't accept my master password] From Firefox Help I was told I could try another profile if I had one. Beside the Default Profile I have one in Root Directory and one in Local Directory. Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?
