I've used Mozilla since it was Netscape 2. My six-year-old nephew draws better than your icon developers! Your interface sucks and there are no provisions to change it. Your browser interface is WORSE than Microsux interslut Explorer. You REMOVE functionality with every evolution and make it SLOWER. Not everyone can afford to buy a new computer every year to keep up with the bloatware you put out. Give me a way to change icons! I've known how to change the main icon. I want to make the thing at least LOOK decent, not like a bunch of scribbles!

Hello,

From a month or so, my mozilla Browser tabs are showing as browser windows. For better understanding please check the attached image.

As you can see in the image, when I hover over the Mozilla icon on the taskbar the browser is showing as there are 4 windows are open but they are just tabs.

The same mozila is sycn in 2 of my computers which is showing the issue. I have another computer with different email and the browser is working fine there. Is there any setting that I missed here?

Looking forward for a positive response.

Thank you.

I just installed the latest Firefox update (67) and when the browser restarted I noticed no web pages were loading. It turned out this was because my uBlock Origin and uMatrix extensions had been completely cleared of ALL data, including their default/pre-defined rules.

All of my extensions data seems to have been cleared. The extensions are still installed, but their settings/data are completely gone.

This is EXTREMELY frustrating.

Does Firefox make backups or anything before it attempts an update? Is my extension data/settings recoverable somehow?

Come on, Mozilla, what are you doing to Firefox recently?!

My phone was wiped while it had the 10-Digit recovery codes and the Authenticator app which had the other 2FA codes. How do I get my account back? I've tried resetting the password but it still wants 2FA codes.

Any help would be appreciated even if it is to let me know it is a lost cause. I would make a new account, but the one that's locked uses my main email account.

Earlier today I tried to full screen youtube and It wouldn't work. I saw some suggestions on here saying delete cookies so I did and now it full screens, however the video is partway down the screen and above it is an empty white box. I've tried restarting in safe mode and deleting cookies again and neither of those worked. i'm having no issues in other browsers so I have no idea what could be causing it.

There have been other threads concerning this issue. Typically they blame the user for not having a cpu that is fast enough or not having the latest software, but it remains that Microsoft Chrome or Edge and others work properly, while Mozilla Firefox doesn't. FWIW, one of my computers, running Windows 7 works OK, but this one with Windows 10 doesn't

I've spent much time trying to craft a userChrome.css, and it never works right. Every time I get close, something else is badly broken. For example, I _finally_ got the address box turned off, so they can't type in addresses, but now the Back button is non-functional.

All,

I have five tabs that open by default in Firefox. If I, say, navigate many pages away from "home" on one tab, how can I easily return to that tab's "home" location. Using "ALT-Home", as I have in other browsers, opens a whole new batch of my home tabs.

Newsletters I have been receiving for years abruptly stopped coming on Saturday, 5/18/19. I've been the on the phone since Sunday with different customer care representatives and they don't have an answer. I have unsubscribed and resubscribed to the newsletters several times, but that doesn't help and I'm wondering if Firefox could be blocking my access.
