This is going to sound bad so forgive me. I bought this computer and no one has any right to install anything I don't want!!! This is the fourth time in 2 months that Firefox has updated against my settings. I hope and pray someone can tell me how to stop this once and for all . I am a decorated veteran disabled and this is causing my ptsd to come back and I don't want to hurt anyone I've seen more killing than I ever want.If firefox updates and causes me all this time lost never to be gotten back again I am going to loose it. So please someone help me and I am writing a very nice letter to the CEO of firefox as soon as I find the address. I would like to get his computer and put all the things I want on it 4 time in 2 months and put my foot where he sits. Can anyone honestly think that this is right ? If you do send me your computer and let me make changes to it. I'm running windows 10 home and am always up to date except I'm running FF version 94.0 . If you want to know why it's because some genius decided that the latest version 97 doesn't need rt ck copy & paste and man I would like to see that guy with a flat tire on a long highway on a hot summer day so I could drive by and give him the one finger wave. I'm not going to apologize because firefox raped my computer again. I hate people doing things they have no right to do and I fought for everyone to have the right to free speech and thats a joke anymore. I rarely get this angry and most people will tell you I help anyone in need but I've had all this violation of privacy and owners right violation I intend to put up with.Last of all I'm terrible at all this tech stuff I have dyslexia and it takes me a lot more to learn the simple things. I hate to even ask for help but whoever helps me will be a true hero I can assure you of that and if any of you have any dirt on the CEO send it to me and I'll see to it that he stops allowing this. Thanks for listening to me blow off some steam and you know I haven't had a drink in 21 years but I'm tempted as hell right now. Thanks again and if you can't help me thanks anyway. I don't have the money to pay the geek squad I've had cancer 3 times and 2 surgeries in the last 7 years and guess who got my life savings. Blessings to you and all you love and pray for Canada and keep one eye open causer they more than likely are going to pull that crap here and I promise you about 90% of the ones claiming to be a patriot will crawl up inthe fetal position and cry for mommy the first bullet whizzes by there head I've seen soldiers fully trained do it. Have a great day you guys

I have been happy with Nimbus capture for years .. until recently. The Nimbus product no longer seems to work correctly in FF, but does in Chrome. Perhaps as a result of a FF update? When using the capture fragment or slected area, it just highlights the text, the capture box has disapppeared and cannot save any captures, so useless to me now.

I have Windows 10 Laptop. 64bit. Everything opens, but then it says "not connected to internet". I go to settings and, sure enough, it says it is not connected. So I choose my internet listing and click "connect". It doesn't connect. Other devices in the house connect just fine so it is only on this laptop. I called my provider and they ran tests and told me all was fine on "their end" so it must be a browser issue. They suggested I uninstall and then reinstall Mozilla. I went in first and made sure I had all the updates from Mozilla and it said I did. I have Chrome (came with the laptop) browser installed on the laptop, however I never use it. So, I assume I would go to Chrome and then to Mozilla site and download from there? However, if I uninstall, then reinstall...what do I lose? I particularly want to save bookmarks and passwords. I am just a novice at this.. a "senior" novice to be specific, so the "version for dummies" would be appreciated if anyone can help me. Thank you

Firefox has required mandatory updates twice since I started playing Wordle. All sites re-open automatically following the updates, but the Wordle game results compiled over weeks of play have been deleted. Is there a setting I can apply in Firefox so that Wordle results are not lost following every Firefox update? Thanks in advance for any solutions to this annoying issue.

I thought the problem was on their end, until I brought up Brave and Edge and it worked just fine there. This same thing happened on a bunch of other pages there.

Any ideas? I don't want to use the other browsers. Thanks.

Problems with logging into Synology Web UI after changing IP-adress on NAS-device

Ok, so I have this very strange problem. I have a Synolgy NAS running DSM 7.0.1-42218 Update 2. The version of Firefox is 97.0.1 (64-bit). Everything worked just fine until I changed the ip-adress for the appliance and moved it to another IP-subnett. After the adress change, I can load the Web UI logon page, and I can submit the username and password, but then the page just hangs without any response.

I have tried different things to troubleshoot this. 1) First of all; The fact that the logon page itself actually loads ... rules out issues with routing and fw issues. I can also log into the same NAS device with SSH, so routing and/or fw-rules is not an issue. 2) I have tested with two other browsers (Edge and Chrome) which both let me log in to the page without any problems. This tells me this seems to be an browser related issue. 3) I have disabled two addons for the site privacy badger and addblock plus, just to make sure those are not interfering with anything 4) I have deleted the cache and tried again, with no success 5) I have started another instance of Firefox (portable from www.portableapps.com), without that solving anything 6) On the Synology device I have checked the option "Clear all saved user login sessions upon system restart" under security

What I can not understand is that this worked with the same browser version before that IP-change, but for some strange reason is not working now.

The setup of the NAS itself is pretty straight forward. The most "fancy" setting is that I have configured a link aggregation for all the NICs on the appliance, but I can't see how this should be relevant in this context. Especially since everything seems to work, just not from Firefox.

Any input on this would be appreciated very much.

Cheers

Since yesterday, late in the day, I don't see any content in my emails. The first one I try to read flashes, very quickly the content, and disappears almost instantly replaced with an option to reply or forward the email. After the first attempt all others immediately just show the "reply or forward" option, never showing the content.

I went to another browser to check my emails and they open as they always have. So this seems to be a Firefox issue only. I have cleared the cashe, and history, have restarted the browser multiple times. Any suggestion is appreciated.

If you can't help me with this issue, how do I transfer all my bookmarks to another browser?

Thank you.

Hey there,

Whenever I type something out in the address bar, for example, youtube.com, it won't autofill to youtube.com. I have to type out the entire domain.

Most other browsers have this, so I assumed Firefox has this, but it just won't work for me.

If there are any solutions, explain it to me pretty simply, because this is my first few days on Firefox.

Thanks!
