Adblock Plus - is it safe? Why Mozilla doesn't recommended it? I used it in the past some years ago but now I am scary about safety

Dear Community,

I would like to download this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/pl/firefox/addon/adblock-plus/ I would like to know how it works. If I will install this extension my firefox will be check hashsum for the files of this extension automatically? Or maybe public key of the organization/company who created Adblock Plus extension? How it is work? Can you tell me? I hope that people from Mozilla now read this and can answer for my question. This is very important for me.

Next question is to Adblock Plus extension. I can read this information: "This add-on is not actively monitored for security by Mozilla. Make sure you trust it before installing" so my question is why Mozilla don't recommended this extension? This extension now use 6,678,297 people so this is huge count. It is possible that this extension is not safe and these people now use malicious software? Why on dedicated website for this extension I can't see company name? Why this company is not verified by Mozilla? So my sugestion for people from Mozilla is to change this and check this extension or maybe add some information on website for this extension.

So I should install this extension? My friend use this on Google Chrome and he recommended me this software but I don't know if this is exatcly the same version. Maybe Chrome has verified Adblock Plus software and this is safe but Mozilla didn't verified this and this can be dangerous software because this can be not exactly the same version?

Next question is to adblocker. Why Mozilla can't make their own software to block all annoying ads and due to fight with malware? Example Opera browser have own buil-in adblocker. Why firefox can't do this? Maybe people from Mozilla should do this? This can be helpful because if this can be happen I will be not install any 3rd party software for firefox anymore and I will be safe. Maybe I can send somehow this suggestion to people from Firefox?

I hope that you can help me.

Yours faithfully, Peter

Hi. I'm experiencing issue when FF pops up new window (I need it this way), it pops up right behind taskbar, which I have on top of the screen (used to it since Amiga), so that I can't reach top of the popup to slide it or minimize etc. and have to stretch it a bit to get it bellow the taskbar. Annoying. I thought it is a Windows issue, but Chrome works well, no hiding popups, just alligning them bellow the taskbar. I don't wanna use Chrome, so please, let me know about workaround. Thanks. hippo

I really hope there's a way to sort the tabs/windows listed in the Windows drop-down menu. It would be pretty cumbersome, time-wasting, and absurd that Firefox, in 2021, makes us look up & down for a certain tab, due to their being shown in completely random order. Is there a way to put them in either alphabetical or chronological order?

Firefox has upgraded to 89.0 version and following last Microsoft trend, I've got bigger menu items and smaller menu fonts making it mor difficult to read and wasting screen space. I mean, where before were 30 items in marker's menu, now only fits about half of them.

It is really annoying getting texts more difficult to read in exchange to coloured blank space, not to mention if you have vision issues.

I've been trying made some kind of customization around this but it has been a loss of time. Is there some adjustement to fix this that I have not seen?

Thanks.

I like all my apps to show bright color when active and dimmed/no color when inactive. Firefox only has one setting - always on. I dislike monochrome themes like FF defaults to.

Basically I just want to use the colors I spent time choosing in windows 10 for the FF colors - title bar mostly.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Is it possible to disable the tab animations for fully loaded pages? I just updated to Version 89, and it's distracting to have the tab changing between single/multiple lines when I'm trying to focus on the page itself. Thank you in advance for your time in this regard.

Multi-account containers: Facebook icon and colour not retained between sessions

This is not the worst issue in the world, but I can't work it out.

I use Multi-Account Containers and have the facebook Container and Google Container extensions.

In Settings >> General >> Container Tabs...Settings, I can choose the colour and the icon that represents each container.

That works fine within a session, but when I restart, the Facebook container has always reverted back to the fence icon, in black. If I change the icon to something else, and/or change it to a different colour, it's ignored when I close and restart.

None of the other containers (Personal, Shopping, Banking, Work, Google) have this problem - I can set whatever icon and colour for them I like, and it's retained when I restart Firefox.

Any ideas?

Sorry but I am really a novice. Within the past week, I received something on my Firefox and I accepted it without really looking at it. Now, my tab page, with the four rows of shortcuts, has changed and is now white and bland. My shortcut icons all appear colorless and bland. How do I modify this and how do I restore what I had prior to accepting this recent change? Thank you in advance, Bruce

Since the last update, my browser home page shortcuts have become a single big letter instead of the old icon style picture. This new update has made it too confusing to find which shortcut I need. I cant even enlarge the font size under this new stupid shortcut icon. I will happily go back to my old browser if this crap cant be changed. Why do we have to have what they want us to have instead of what we want in a browser? I really wish all companies would stop forcing their own ideas on us, most of it is pathetic childest rubbish.

I need help with a weird interaction with Lenovo Flex 5's Fn key. I was first weirded out when my Flex 5 didnt have media hotkeys. HOWEVER, whenever firefox is in focus, the basic "Fn" key, next to the WIN key, will pause/unpause any youtube videos open in firefox.

Pressing the same key in other media situations (win media player, VLC, Spotify, etc) doesnt pause anything, which makes me think that it is a firefox interaction.

Please help

None of the solutions suggested allow me to revert back to the background, tool bar(s) colors I enjoyed before.

Not only does the all WHITE background hurts my eyes -- it makes using Firefox UN-ENJOYABLE!!!

Who and why was this change made to my browser?

And why can it not be undone?

Firefox changed my View settings with the recent update ...

The new changes don't make sense at all ... They basically reduced the contrast and/or increased the brightness in the toolbar. Like other humans, I rely on contrast to see where one thing ends and another thing starts.

I didn't ask for or agree to this ... How do I change it back? (I clicked around and it's not obvious.)
