I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I ask how we can disable the "Update available" popup in the top right-hand corner that appears every time we open the browser.

I have auto-updates turned off because I would like to choose myself when to update the browser and really hate being nagged by the update popup to do so!!!

To be clear, I don't want to turn off updates entirely with the "policies.json" file that I've seen with other questions; I just want to disable the update popup and still be able to update periodically AT MY OWN DISCRETION.

I really don't know why it's so hard for FF developers to give us that popup disabling option. I have always suggested using FF to people I know for over 10 years, but will no longer do so and will be looking for an alternate browser if this continues.

FF is becoming more like Microsoft by trying to dictate what's best for us at the expense of user experience.

Hi, since some weeks, my Firefox browser is super slow after changing networks. For example, when I'm on Wifi and then switching to normal wired network, Firefox is loading any content only very slowly, despite the connection is super fast. Other browsers like Chrome or Edge don't have this problem. The issue can be very easily resolved though: I just have to close and restart Firefox, and it's super fast immediately again. Still it is annoying, as I switch networks pretty often. Please support. Thank you!

Ever since i updated to Firefox 104.0.2, no web pages fully load, often it take multiple refresh or open to get the pages to work at all.

I have a gigabit connection that works perfectly on two other computers and there is no issue at all with Edge, Chrome, Vivaldi or Brave, only with Firefox since the update.

What is going on?

Need help. Just installed Firefox on Windows 11 on a new computer. I tried to sync the bookmarks so that it was like all the other versions I've had. But, I can't. I can put bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar, but where I used to have the Bookmarks Menu on the top right of monitor I can't seem to do it. I miss opening a folder and having multiple bookmarks opening all at once. A little help please. Thanks....

I can't find any way to add to the list of document types and applications. I know I must have done (because they are different from my wife's options), but now she needs to add one, and there is no immediately obvious way to do this. How do I add a new entry in the list in Settings/General/Files and Applications/Applications?

Thanks,

Tony

Tracker blocking precedence with Ghostery vs Firefox tracker detection

I have Ghostery installed and when going to a website the list of trackers Ghostery blocks shows up in the status block that Ghostery projects onto that web page. Then going to the security shield icon that Firefox has next to the 'Home' icon on the address bar, Firefox reports 'No trackers known to Firefox were detected on this page'.

Can someone explain the order of precedence for detecting and blocking trackers here? Does Ghostery intercept the web page load before Firefox analyzes the page for trackers? If Ghostery blocks trackers is this the reason Firefox does not detect trackers?

Running Firefox 104.0.2 on Windows 10 Pro - latest installed patches as of 9/21/22.

And finally does Ghostery (not running Ghostery Plus) keep a list of web URL and blocked trackers somewhere?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Currently I use Firefox and Brave Browser, I want to use only Firefox, but the lack of an option to create shortcuts like in Brave is what prevents me from doing that, these shortcuts are extremely useful and practical, but in Firefox the only way to do this is through links that will open in the browser, which is practically useless because I can create shortcut links within the browser itself. I also performed a procedure in the browser's advanced settings so that I could have this option, but it doesn't work either. So I was wondering if there is any other way to do this.

Cannot login to mail.yahoo.com via Firefox on this PC. I can do so via Chrome. When attempting to connect to mail.yahoo.com via Firefox I can enter my email address but all I get from Yahoo is "We are unable to process your request at this time

Please try in minutes"

Note that the problem does NOT occur when using Chrome at the same sitting using the same PC. Have tried selecting the "shield" symbol to the left in the address to no result nor does trying to select the lock symbol. At this point I am ready to say goodby to Mozilla Firefox which I have used for several years. But unless a solution is found it is time to say GOODBYE Firefox. I will watch my email via another browser for any possible solutions. Thanks in advance, Hall Blankenship [removed email from public]
