After downloading the latest version of Fire Fox I cannot block email senders, delete email, or search thru my email account. I can't send a screen shot as nothing shows. There is no error message. It is just that I cannot use my Yahoo email account like I could before the download so I have had to use Chrome with my Yahoo email in order to function. Do you have any suggestions on what I can do to fix things? Thank you.

After the automatic update to version 98, I'm finding that Firefox insists on putting a copy of my downloaded files into the Download file even after I turned that off in the General tab of Settings. Also found it odd that I was unable to take a screenshot of these settings, but had to use Printscreen to do so!

Windows 8.1 Firefox 102.0.1 Clean install with a brand new profile

Noodling around about:config I discovered that the boolean value browser.sessionstore.enabled does not exist.

Interestingly though, it's numerical partner browser.sessionstore.interval does exist and was set to 15000. (15000 miliseconds = 15 seconds)

I was planning to increase this interval significantly. However...

It is my understanding that browser.sessionstore.enabled must be set to true for browser.sessionstore.interval to have any effect.

So what gives? Why is there a browser.sessionstore.interval set to 15000 when the prerequisite browser.sessionstore.enabled does not even exist?

It seems a Windows 8.1 update Aug 10, 2022 made my FF browser enlarge on my second screen from my laptop. Moving it back to the laptop makes it return to the correct size. I've tried the resolution, zoom, etc. Not sure what's happened to it to cause the enlargement. Zoom only works on the pages, not the tabs. It's the whole browser that is bigger, including the tabs. Open to suggestions.

Is there any clear way to prevent Firefox from automatically downloading and installing updates? I had checked the setting to prevent it being done without my choosing to do so: "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" but Firefox did not comply. What can a user do if Firefox will not comply with its own settings?

In government it's called autocracy, elitism and the only ones who like it are the ones in charge. Is that what's going on with Firefox?

On some Globo pages, the Reader View does not return the text content of a page. It does return content, but I don't know from where.

It does not happen on every page, and I can't figure out what the difference is between pages that work & pages that don't.

Example: https://gshow.globo.com/novelas/pantanal/noticia/pantanal-zefa-conquista-web-ao-discutir-com-guta-por-causa-de-tadeu-confira-reacoes.ghtml

I'm attaching snippets of what the web page shows and what the Reader View shows.

FredMcD you asked if I could post a link to the Map . . this is the link to the page that has the map. Normally it would simply pop up as Elk Grove Village as that is the website this is in, but it does not and I can not enter the name of the city in the box provided. The map is at the bottom of this page.
