I have two (so far) websites, e.g. yahoo mail and Intuit, that tell me I need to update FireFox. (Can ignore only Yahoo.) However, I did one update, which blew away all of my add-ons, and I found that I was using latest version.

Does anyone have a solution? Are sites not accepting tracking and ad blocking now? I also use DuckDuckGo for search engine.

Would appreciate some words of wisdom on this.

Thank you, Bonsaibill

Hello,

I followed these install instructions (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos) to install Firefox on my new Chromebook but I got this Linux Terminal error message when I attempted the final step of installing Firefox:

flatpak install firefox Looking for matches… error: No remote refs found similar to ‘firefox’

I am a novice and thank you for your help.

It took years to perfect my userchrome to make FF look exactly how I want. Once 91+ came out it wasn't even a question of fixing the floating tabs and condensing the height and menu spacing (though I tried all of it) but my own codes stopped working properly - I had code to set the background colour of menus/bookmark menus and when I upgrade they were the right colour but with thick white borders around them. This was more important to me than the floating tabs and I immediately downgraded to 90 where I've stayed. Can anyone help me figure out how to get MY codes to work with 91+ and/or to work together with the other fixes out there (tabs, condensed menus etc)??

Below is how my userchrome looks and attached is how my current set up looks. ANY advice is appreciated. THANK YOU.

Hello. Starting yesterday, Firefox has stopped playing audio from every website and even local files. Yes, I read this article and no, the sound is not being muted instead the sound just refuses to play. In the screenshot, it shows that the "play" "mute" and speed option are greyed out. Also, I tried using safe mode and audio still wouldn't play. What should I do?

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

I almost exclusively browse privately using Duckduckgo/Firefox. I have a few news subscriptions, and other sites which require login each time I open them, which is a bit of a nuisance. Some of them have a "remember me" checkbox, but it doesn't seem to work-I have to log in each time. Is there a way around this? By the way, the "Add Images" button on this page will not let me add a screenshot of the message I am getting.

I believe this started with 94.0.2 but could be 94.0.1. Looking at various things in Easysnews.com, for instance thumbnails, the title for that item used to change from blue (Unvisted Links) to brown (Visited Links) and keep the brown color until I exited Easynews. Now it does not. In another case, looking at my list of favorite groups, the group name will turn brown as long as my mouse is over it but it will not stick if I select that item.

I am not using system colors and Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above is set to Only With High Contrast themes. I tried the other two choices but they really created a mess.

I have also tried deleting any easynews cookies to no effect.

Hi, The problem I have is that when i download a screenshot in Firefox, left click the download arrow in the top right corner, click on the file, I get a message that says "the app didn't start". Never had the problem in November but seems to have happened after a Firefox update. I have the most current updates for Windows 10 pro 64, Firefox has been removed and reinstalled, Comodo was disabled, Strong VPN was disabled, browser privacy was set to standard, I have set up a separate folder for Firefox downloads and get the same message. I should note that these are all .png files. What app do I need and is it a Windows or Firefox app? Thank you for any help.

This make it a real pain in the ass to check what my subscriptions are, what my Profile says, or to check anything else!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never seen a website that is so disorganized.

I had to

1) Sign in to Mozilla by typing https://www.mozilla.org/

2) Go down the home page to Contact Us.

3) The go to Support and find "Sign In/Sign Up"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This just to sign into Mozilla!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A second problem unrelated to your screwed up sign in to my account, is that while I can see that I have subscribed to your VPN, I cannot find the big ball with "VPN is On/ VPN is Off" to sign into the VPN.

OK. someone kindly offered me a new-to-me computer and claimed that they had transferred everything to the newish one. Well, what they did was take my umpteen gazillion desktop shortcuts and place them all in "bookmarks menu". EEK.` That's way too many. So I exported them to an html file/link/firefox internet shortcut on the desktop called "bookmarks.html". Worked swell. However, the bookmarks menu went along. It no longer appears under"bookmarks" on the menu bar. I was able to get it onto the toolbar. (star in tray). If I click on that, and then select "bookmarks sidebar", what appears in the sidebar is perfect. Just like new. But on the menu bar, on the dropdown menu under "bookmarks", no "bookmarks menu".

I can live with this BUT I really don't want to BECAUSE there are bizillion bookmarks in the bookmarks menu. I need to send them someplace (or gather them into a NEW folder, so that I can add newly created bookmarks and be all neat and organized.

How do I put the "bookmarks menu" that shows on the sidebar back under "bookmarks" ??? How do I get the bizillion bookmarks off of "bookmarks menu"? Is there a "select all", then "delete"? I don't want to lose the ones in the html folder on the desktop. I am happy with them being in an html folder on my desktop. Should I change the name of the html link to XYZ.html?

I just do not understand how the sidebar can look perfect but the menu bar doesn't.

Help, please !
