I'm running 96.0.3 on a fully patched Win 10 Pro system - both O/S and programs. When Firefox is running I'm getting these pop-up error messages randomly with changing content. They stay on screen for some seconds and then go away. Message states it's from (via) 5.back2yard.biz. I put that in my hosts file and I'm still getting them. My network is a cable modem hooked to Xfinity and then cable connected to another fully newer patched router. All addresses are 10. range. I ran both a Malwarebytes scan and a Windows Security scan - both are clean.

I'm unable to upload a small image after a hour so I'll give up on that right now.

Ive been using FireFox for a while and think its great but FireFox suddenly stopped working for me even though I use it everyday just fine. The search bar works but literally nothing else works. Its very annoying and I do not know what to do. Someone please help me fix it. I use windows 11 on a HP computer, I do have a lot of extensions but absolutely nothing works so I cant check. Nothing I try will work. I cant list the extensions I have because it’s completely blank and glitched. I hope it isn’t a severe problem. Please give me some advice!

I searched an address and Google Maps gives an (accurate) estimated travel time to that address. Within Settings>Locations they are not listed as having permission to use location data and when they requested location data, I selected not to share.

Is there a way to specifically block a website from accessing location data? Is there a way to report suspisious activity from a website?

Thanks!

I am tri-lingual, so I switch between three languages all the time. How can I quickly switch between my favorite 3 languages (en_US, de_DE, es_CL)? I couldn't care less about the other locales and only very rarely need other languages like fr_FR. Please get all those out of my way. Please make the drop-down such that it only shows locales I used in the last year, with an extra option "others" where you move all the rest.

An automatic update of Firefox which resulted in a "quit/create new profile" choice has removed all my bookmarks

Of the four profiles stored in "about:profile" three are identical (ie. have only the default bookmarks stored) and one, generates a "quit/create new profile" message.

The "bookmarksbackup" folder (in /home/user/.Mozilla/Firefox/zs1jki8t.default) is empty.

The "import/backup" option (in Manage Bookmarks) offers nothing to choose. There is no 'list of dated automatic backups.'

Firefox did not create an "Old Firefox Data" folder on the desktop.

Browser privacy "strict". "Never remember history" was selected.

Running Firefox in Manjaro (Linux)

Help.
