I am about to stop using Firefox, because recently, every time it wants to update, it goes right ahead without my say so, and completely voids my entire history. Everything is gone. I have to find all my tabs again, and sign into them all again. Dreadful. I was a faithful user of this web platform, bit this is so inconveniently useless, I cannot continue.

Since yesterday any streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu will only have green screen for the video. The sound will come through just fine and subtitles. My Wildvine is updated, I've toggled the DRM on and off several times, no changes. My browser has been checked for updates. Not sure what else to try at this point.

I've been trying to sign in to pinterest, duolingo, etc using the 'sign in with google' option since my account was saved there. Whenever I click it, a sign in window opens up as usual, but it only ever shows a blank screen. No matter how long I wait, nothing shows up. I tried clearing cache, and it still didn't work. It worked before, but recently since the past 2 weeks, it became like this and I don't know how to fix it.

I have some extensions on my account so I'll list them out just in case one of them is the one making this problem: -Search by Image -Firefox Relay -uBlock Origin -DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials -TWP - Translate Between Pages -Ecosia


(Below is a screenshot showing what I mean by the sign in window being a blank screen.)

Update to Firefox (120.0.1) in Linux Mint blocks CNN - its the only site which appears to be blocked. I get a message telling me that configuration of the site is blocking CNN from loading, and goes on as follows.

"" We apologize, but your web browser is configured in such a way that it is preventing this site from implementing required components that protect your privacy and allow you to view and change your privacy settings. This functionality is required for privacy legislation in your region.

We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser). ""

Rather strange, since I'm using Firefox.

In general, I am thoroughly annoyed with the way the Internet experience is increasingly fouled up by various sites implementing "safety" aspects. It used to be fun, now its a crap experience. Firefox is getting bigger, slower, and infested with site 'improvements' which do absolutely nothing for me - Is it so hard to provide a simple, clean, straightforward browser without so many 'add-ons' that its grinding to a halt? Time was software was written for the users, now its clearly written to give software developers something to do. Can't you create a revolution in software and do something useful, instead of "clever"?

That was a useful article. But I would prefer to (also here) open a new tab behind the ones already open. Could this also be done?

Is there a Firefox setting that automatically clears cookies? When I turned my computer on, it had been cleared of cookies since the last time I had it on a few hours ago, but I didn't do it. No one else here to use the computer but me. I don't want cookies cleared automatically. How do I change it back to manual? I use Firefox Browser 120.0

thank you

Should I invest in Advertising Ball-Socket Bearings from Habor Freight to an Audience equating to Travel-Luggage Producers?

Okay;

So a super positioned photon has a 720 degree of field displacability within its' emtiness and with its' orbitals and what-not...

But why does 4-Wheel luggage move so much more freely; it may even be in one place while maintaining the same 360 degrees of motions that a 2-Wheeled Luggage has - while it is in a fixed direction...

But they both offer the same 360 degrees of singular direction of motion...but...if you have4 Ball-Socket Joints on the bottom of the luggage, it could be going - without axle request-response reisistancant-fixation...; in spirals about the axis which it is also 360 degree traveling in...it could cover double the distance, while only traveling half the actual linear distance...

~$4 @ Harbor Freight.

P.S. I found a glitch as I typed this - If you "Copy Image," you can Click "Add Image," then "Paste," the Image , successfully - it appeared on the display within that Folder...now it is on My desktop, but it fails to Upload, I can go and repaste - ACTUALLY replacing it on my Desktop...but it fails...


AHHHH unsupported Image Type...

You all could totally allow me to upload into an HTML6 Canvas with WASM, which I would suggest Simply Strips out the Color Positional Data; Storing it as a Binary Format - and then when you go to Display it; simply Read that Fetched Binary into a Linear Memory Sequence, as SetPixel Commands into the Canvas API...You do not REALLY need the WASM...But WebAssembly! (I guess it was the File Type.)

My cookies are being deleted very regularly perhaps two times per week and very often it seems to occur after one the the very frequent updates are installed. I have tested this by refusing an update for several days and the cookies remain, but after i accept, often, they are deleted. I have not changed any settings related to cookies at any time and so it does appear that the updates are the couse. there cookies are very useful and include preferences for websites and identification details and it's incrediibly frustrating to have them erased though no fault of mine
