Hi,

You have a link to find out how to use the new screenshot ability in the new firefox on the landing page for ALL users, the link takes you here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/5-ways-take-screenshots/?sample_rate=0.001&snippet_name=8148#utm_source=desktop-snippet&utm_medium=snippet&utm_campaign=Screenshots5Ways&utm_term=8148&utm_content=REL

BUT that page doesn't actually show you how to take a screen shot!! Quite frustrating for all (I am assuming thousands) users that click the linking wanting to find out this new cool feature.

The correct URI is:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-screenshots

Cheers,

David

How can I get my data wiped from your servers.

It seems that you enabled sync, and now I find you have stored data that I do not want you to have. I understand that you have strict data sharing policies. I don't care.… (read more)

It seems that you enabled sync, and now I find you have stored data that I do not want you to have. I understand that you have strict data sharing policies. I don't care. I operate under the concepts of 'need to know' and 'single point of failure'. I do not need or want the convenience of stored data.

Haven't downloaded Adobe Flash because I am concerned I will recreate the performance problems which I experienced on my desktop under Windows Xp.The machine became unusable in 2014 with response times extending into minutes.I read an article in The Age Green Guide which suggested that these issues might be attributed to an incompatibility between the earlier version of Firefox and my Dell Desktop running Windows XP.Am I right to be so cicumspect ?

Why have I got to re-learn nearly all of controls each time you change something?

Hi, my name is Dave. I have been using Mozilla for some time now. Each time I get familiarised with the layout, someone designs it the other way round? When the new 'e-mail' came out I needed to send an e-mail asap. I found it had all been changed round !!! I was not pleased because there was no way to change it back !!! Later on that day I spent 45 mins sorting it out, back to the 'old' type of page which works fine. Now you want me to update to the New mozilla, which...and I can put money on it....will require me to learn it all again !!! LIFE IS TOO SHORT to keep doing this. Please stop doing this Thank-you.

It makes me do a click to get rid of it. How can I disable that?

Besides the extra click, the tiny area that you're given to edit is not useful.

I keep my bookmarks open in another window, using this shortcut:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -chrome chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul

If I want to edit, I go there, which is better, because the line is longer, which makes it easy to edit.
