I have a number of bookmarked pages. When I open a new window and then select the bookmarked page i want to open, FF switches tyo another ALREADY OPEN TAB and loads the page there removing the page that was opened. EX: I use both regular FF and Private windows on my screen and switch from one to the other according to the loaded pages I am using. When I open a new tab in private windows and try to get FF to open a bookmarked page, it will switch to my open tabs under regular FF instead of opening the bookmarked page in the new private windows page it will REPLACE an open page. This happens a lot with my YouTube pages which I leave open during the day to listen to binaural beat music in the background while I am working. What's up with that? Why doesn't the bookmarked page open in a new private windows tab?

I also noticed that when I leave pages open during the day in both private and regular FF now (since the most recent update)and go back to them, I often have to reload the whole page instead of just allowing me to go directly to something on that page.

I have been dodging the most recent updates because with each new update there seems to be more and more CONTROL from your side, and less freedom on our side of the screen. Is this purposeful? If so, WHY?!!!

How does one turn off the Firefox Updates completely ? I have disabled the auto updates but with multiple FF windows open the update request tab that comes up is causing me problems. There needs be an option to turn it off completely so only manual updates can be done.

Its getting to the stage with this where I will dump Firefox completely if this isnt done.

Also feedback to Mozilla has been disabled for months. Whats happening there ?

That means I can later bring the tab back and move back in history of that tab.

4/15/21 Hi I have reviewed the posts of individuals (draculas.tomb, jscher2000, chasdobie) from 3/11-3/18/2021; who were having a similar problem accessing the email account through centurylink.net. I tried the suggested fixes through confirming DNS and changing TLS, and I still cannot access my email account. I get an error "redir.peridot.synacor.com/?to=zmail&u_d..." Are there any other suggestions to resolve this issue?

I've recently started seeing Firefox not displaying correctly. This includes the page itself as well as the tabs. Letters will be missing, colors incorrect, as well as just being illegible as in the images provided. Image 1 - tab names missing and the green color is not the correct one for that part of the page. Image 2 - Get Help menu options unreadable along with tab names missing.

Is there any way to stop Firefox automatically installing updates on Linux? It's incredibly disruptive when I'm in the middle of work, open a new tab and Firefox says it needs to be restarted to install updates. When in this state, opening new tabs yields the same result. I'm using 87.0 built for Ubuntu, installed out of the package repo.

Dear Mozilla Community,

I would like to suggest you to make built in adblocker in Firefox. For example Opera have this feature so we don't need install any extension. People from Mozilla read subjects in support.mozilla.org? If not where I can send my suggestion?

P.S. I wanted to install Adblock Plus extension but I am afraid about safety so better option is to make built in adblocker to protect from malware. I think that this can be direction in good way.

Yours faithfully, Piotr

3-26-21: I just upgraded to the latest version of Firefox and NONE of my bookmarks are available. I've tried all the tips I've found and nothing works. I tried to Restore Bookmarks and get the error: Unable to process the backup file. This is a terrible version of Firefox. I need my Bookmarks. Where did they go?? How do I get them back? I am not a computer expert. I am a user of your product. I should not have to jump through hoops just to get my browser set up the way I had it before. Right now it is a big mess. I've used Firefox for years when other browsers are available. I will dump Firefox if I have to but I would prefer to solve this problem.

I started using Firefox before I got a monitor to use with my laptop. Back then, font size was not an issue. As soon as I plugged in my monitor and dragged Firefox into it, then dragged it back to the laptop, the font was so small it was nearly illegible (in the laptop). Drag it back into the browser and it's fine.

Has anyone else had this issue? I've tried going to about:config, devp and adjusting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx up and down. I keep ending up with font that, if it looks good in my laptop, is WAY too large in the monitor. I just want a normal balance. Chrome doesn't have this scaling issue. Please help! It's affecting my ability to work!

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Searching for non-ascii characters will also match normalized ascii counterparts, leading to too many false positive matches.

For example, searching for the character "å" matches both "a" and "å" on the page.

We should be able to configure whether to normalize the characters or to use strict matching.
