The last time I updated Firefox I had such a bad time I swore never to update it again, however yesterday an addon I use couldn't work without updating. So I bit the bullet and did. I've been regretting it ever since. At best it works slightly slower than my old version which was 61.0.1. At worst I miss the days of internet explorer.

The most common issues are 1. White Wheel: When I swap tabs or open a new one I often get a spinning white wheel. This can last anywhere from seconds to at least ten minutes. I've asked around and tried everything suggested, nothing has gotten rid of it.

2. Scripts breaking: This started later on after installing it. Almost any time I refresh a tab or open a new one a script in some other tab breaks. At least twice I was just watching a video in one tab, not even touching the computer and a script breaks in another tab.

Please, I just want my browser to run properly. WITHOUT having to sacrifice my settings/history/bookmarks/addons

Hello

I'm trying to insert a flagcounter from flagcounter.com in the sourcecode of my discogs-profile site. As I am no developer i'm not sure why the flagcounter doesn't stay on the site (after inserting the code, first it gets displayed). When I quit the page and reload it, it's gone

In the (german) konsole there are several error messages about cookie settings, but I don't know what to change there exactly.

Or can I add an attribute "crossorigin" to the souce code? And how?

Could you please help? Surely will make a small donation to mozilla:-)

Best regards, Stefan

When I receive an email, I would like a 'Save As' option, but this seems to only be availabe with Internet Explorer. I would like to save my attachments from a received email where I would like them to go, rather than being forced to save to 'Downloads' and then then relocate the file to where I want it!

Since few Firefox versions I am constantly asked if I want to allow Firefox to open link in external program. For example if you click install on steam page it asks you if you want to launch steam. However in private tabs it asks constantly even if I click "remember". Is there any setting in about:config that would allow me to always allow every site to open links? I do not care about security, I just want usability. Example notification: https://i.postimg.cc/652gmyXT/example.png

So, how to say this and not to fail into rage.... Mozilla account failed to save my account information. All log ins, all bookmarks and saved pages, everything is lost. I needed to reinstall the OS on my laptop and after reinstalling Mozilla and logging in to my Mozilla account I realized that nothing from my data has been saved. How is it possible that the only thing I used the Mozilla account for failed to work when I needed it the most? Is it possible to access the data and how?

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

I just added a new Firefox installation to my Firefox account. I did so by clicking on sync settings, in order to have a chance to modify the settings before sync started. As expected, I was first prompted to sign in to my Firefox account. I was then invited to install Firefox on my smartphone, which doesn't interest me. Since I found no option to dismiss this completely, I clicked on "remind me later". Then, instead of opening Sync settings as I expected, Firefox began to sync immediately. In fact the activity blocked Firefox for a while, preventing me from accessing sync settings at all. After getting into the settings, I disabled some things in sync settings, but don't know what undesired "cross-fertilization" may have already occurred between my Firefox installations. How can I find out? How can I get control of Firefox's syncing behaviour? There is a prominent "Sync now" button in the sync settings, but this only makes sense to me if there is some way to stop automatic syncing and make Firefox wait for me to click the button. How can I suspend automatic sync and make Firefox wait for a manual sync command?

I am just not able to access sites related to CFA Institute, rest I am able to do. If I try to browse any of the site related to that, I am getting: 'Server Not Found", as window heading and below the description looks like this:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at cfasocietyindia.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have tried every possible outcome, but not able to solve this. Hence if anyone can help on this, that would be great. Attaching a screenshot for a better refrence

Hello,

I'm in a bit of a trouble here, as I got recently and quite suddenly put aside from my job, and with that, lost access to my professional e-mail adress and to my professional computer. Problem is I had a Firefox account linked to my professional e-mail adress, and with this "work from home" situation I made the mistake to mix things up a little and store some personal passwords, on my pro computer. I changed most of my passwords since then, but still, I'd prefer if even the old ones weren't in the nature... As I can't log into my pro inbox anymore to validate the 2 steps connexion to firefox sync, I can't access my Firefox account from any other computer to remotely delete all these sensitive informations.

As this account mainly stores work related bookmarks and passwords, I don't particularly plan on claiming it back, as it would be of no use to me now. Instead, I'd prefer to see this account purely deleted, and to be able to move on with a clean slate.

I would like to know if there is a way, some procedure or anything, for the Mozilla teams to manualy delete an account and all it contains ?

Thank you in advance.

Hello,

As the subject states, in the last few days I have been experiencing this very annoying phenomenon. I can start youtube, pick any video from recommended or my subscriptions, but aftery using the search bar to look up anything else, the whole browser freezes for at least 30 seconds but usually more. This started on maybe Sunday. Any tips? I have hardware acceleration disabled, but tried it both ways. I have cleared cache/history/cookies. Haven't tried a refresh yet and wouldn't want to if there's any other solution. Any tips to fix this?
