I do not use the majority of keyboard controls in Firefox-- only Ctrl+F. Lately, I've noticed that using Ctrl+I in editor windows also pops up the Page Info window, which I have never used on purpose and am perfectly comfortable accessing via Firefox's menubar.

I have been searching for over an hour, and every Firefox add-on that I can find to fix this problem has been removed.

Ideally, I would like to be able to configure all of my keyboard shortcuts, but practically I will settle for being able to disable Ctrl-B, Ctrl-I, and Ctrl-U.

On Firefox 82 on Ubuntu.

After dealing with the forced updates I manually disabled them, which takes a surprising amount of Googling since the setting was placed in about:config recently. However, I'm still being prompted to restart whenever an update is available.

If this can't be fixed, I'm done with Firefox - it's honestly something extremely basic and that the setting is hidden, and doesn't do anything. makes no sense.

When I am using firefox, it often updates without need nor request of my consent, whenever this happens, I become unable to use firefox whatsoever until it is shut down and restarted completely, losing me all my private windows and any un-finalized data entered in my non-private pages. This is unacceptable to me, and I have tried to turn it off in settings, however, under the "firefox updates" heading, it only lists a version number. It seems that it used to have an option to force requests for updates, but it's no longer there. I have also read that others used that option but while it requested consent, it went ahead anyway until told no. It doesn't take a recontextualization into a legal or sexual scenario to see how scummy this behavior is, as it is readily apparent. If this kind of "windows 10" style update is all mozilla can offer me, I will happily switch to ungoogled chromium, however if there is a way to make it so updates can only happen when I click yes on update then I would much prefer to stick with firefox as it has been my favored browser for my entire life. Any help is much appreciated, thank you for your time.

Hi there,

Every time Firefox updates it crashes the work that I am doing on my websites and I have to restart again. In occassions, it makes my extension to stop working properly, which is more annoying cause Firefox is just a tool and the extensions are the only reason why I stay in Firefox and I do not switch to Chrome.

In the past, you could select when to update, that is I updated when I wanted and I had time and not in the middle of a process or line of daily tasks.

I have Ubuntu, and I select the repositories that I want to update everytime. It is time consuming, but I do not want to risk that Lastpass stop working and I have to look for other ways to findout my passwords.

Is there anyway to disable update in Firefox as it was in the past and made me very happy?

This post https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1199816 opted as solution "There is no reason to use an old version of Firefox"... well, congratulations for not thinking on your clients, that is a terrible response cause to take the power of your users to update whenever they want and take it for yourself.

Anyway, I will switch to Chrome as it does not autoupdate unless I want. Thanks

Thanks,

                Carlos

I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

Hello. I have a following question:

Since Adobe is dropping the flashplayer plugin and the browser won't be supporting showing of the flash pages then how can view them? Take a notice that many websites (including online games) are made in flash, so it's not good to leave firefox without any support for this technology.

My idea (and a good alternative idea for the plugins) is that firefox should have a build-in flash support that would replace the need of downloading any flash plugins (especially unsupported), with could give a privacy risk for the users

As explained in the title, firefox crashes when I try to open links in other applications like telegram or slack. It asks me to restart or quit the browser, in either choise, the browser stops working. I can't open it again, coz it says that firefox is already running and I can't quit it because I can't see it running, so I have to manually kill the process.

Hello,

I recently installed the Multi-Account Containers extension but noticed that it also added some unwanted right click context menu items to assets for websites that I have put into containers. For example google.com and youtube.com are both put inside a "google" container. Now I have used the folowing code: "menu[label="Open Link in New Google Tab"] {display:none!important;} " in the userChrome.css file to remove the context menu item: "Open Link in New Google Tab" but it's only taking effect on the google.com website and not youtube.com.

Anyone know the reason why?

Thanks in advace.
