Can I safely delete the old browser and other Microsoft products from my computer to make more room? Can I delete Internet Explorer and so many other Microsoft products that I never use? I don't use gaming, I don't use the computer for video or movies. I use my computer for documents, pictures and to connect with my truck computer for real time information. What can I delete? I am low on resources and have other computers.

Thank you for your knowledge and time to help out!

The setting Restore previous session, on settings, general, is marked. History is kept, and the previous tabs are on the history menu (no restore session option is available, however).

Things I tried: Started on safe mode. Deleted startup cache. Refreshed the profile. Turned off add-ons.

So far, nothing works. When I close the browser with tabs open and I open it again, it starts with my homepage only.

Firefox on PC. I had an icon on the toolbar for Google Translate, then a Firefox update came along and the icon disappeared. Google Translate as an extension is still there but can only be accessed using CNTLSHIFT keyboard keys. I cannot drag and drop Google Translate back onto the toolbar using Other Tools/Customize Toolbar or any other way I could think of. The curious thing is, I have another PC that I believe has gone through the same update process and the icon is still there. What happened?

I hope you can help me, because I have only this ONE e-mail address for EVERYTHING. I have NEVER gotten this message before, & there is NO reason I should be getting it now. I was JUST THERE, IN my e-mail account & it worked just fine. I am still on the same browser section & went to check for an incoming message & Firefox won't let me into my ONLY e-mail account, for NO good reason. I DEMAND some HELP getting into my E-MAIL. I NEED ACCESS to this account. I do EVERYTHING through that account, & I HAVE NO other. PLEASE HELP!!!!! *NOW*!!! I'm PANICKING! RESPOND IMMEDIATELY. I would also include a screenshot, but your STUPID new browser updates no longer ALLOW me to. I'm starting to HATE this new Firefox, it SUCKS, just so you know. I need IMMEDIATE help, so someone had BETTER get to me in a CHAT right NOW. I CAN'T get an E-MAIL from you, because YOU WON'T LET ME IN to my ONLY e-mail account, so WHAT am I supposed to do NOW? You can't even CONTACT me. I'll tell you what, yes you can. You WILL have SOMEONE call me at THIS number IMMEDIATELY to HELP me get into my E-MAIL account > 1 - 719 - 890 -1660 > THANK you.

The storage of Logins & Passwords needs a new feature. The system lacks the ability to store a Nickname (aka Note/Comment) to each login entry. Some domains are different than the commonly known website name.

For example, the recipe website Cook'n is a section under the URL https://www.dvo.com/. When I search logins for "cook", Cook'n is not shown.

Firefox just updated. I went to check my email and the layout was totally different and all the messages that were in my inbox and junk folder were gone!!! As a matter of fact, ALL of my saved emails and folders are gone!!! Where did they go? How do I get them back? How do I restore the previous Outlook view? It seems as if every time I get used to a layout you change it. This is a crock!!! I save things, such as emails that are important, and I place them in folders that I have created, so I know where they are and you guys just change it and throw away my folders? How do I go back to the previous version of Firefox? Or, how do I go back to the previous version of outlook so I can get my folders, saved emails, as well as my inbox back? If you are going to do this type of thing then give us the option of retaining our emails and the look and feel that we are used to. Some of us have trouble remembering things and change is difficult!!!!

First off, I have to create an account in order to ask a question? Yea, that in itself is enough for me to leave...

Secondly, who is the idiot that thought it would be a great idea to make the spaces for bookmarks BIGGER? I installed the latest update and it never warned me that my browser layout would become more difficult because I now have to click the down arrow to see all of my bookmarks in the folders... FIRE THAT IDIOT!

Other than that, I'll be back when you decide to keep things the way they are instead of changing things. No one wants "a new look" if we did, we'd use Google or Netscape (yea, that's right...).

Unhappy.
