Newer Firefox ver's, 80.0.1 for example, don't seem to allow users to stop pestering sw update popups from being displayed throughout a single Firefox session. No means no, and not keep asking anyway. Has something been missed?

Suddenly, when I access Yahoo Mail through Firefox, I no longer have any contacts when I click on the Contacts button (shows "No Contacts"). This issue just started and is unique to Firefox because if I access Yahoo Mail through Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome browsers, all of my contacts are there. I have tried clearing the cache and clearing cookies to no avail. All other email functions still work properly in Firefox. Any suggestions?

Firefox 80.0 (64-bit), Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Insider build Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.487) This just started in the last 30 days or so. When run a speedtest in FF, the download speed is significantly lower that in a different browser, and more importantly, the upload test fails, and my wireless network disconnects. I have checked my network logs and I see no blocking taking place. I disabled DoH in FF settings and experienced the same results. Please observe screenshots, below. Note, I first noticed this in Version 79, but it's possible that it began earlier. I don't run speed tests frequently. Site = https://www.speedtest.net/ Connections = Multi Photos 1 & 2 are from within Firefox. Photo # 3 shows the identical test run on the same PC from Vivaldi Browser. I have tested after disabling extensions, and even from a private window, all with the same resuls. Please advise. Thank you! Pete M.

Since the latest versions of Firefox--say, the last month or so--Firefox continues to override and change my preferred file association for pdf files. I have gone in through the Windows 10 Start/Settings/Apps to change the file association for pdf files to my Adobe Acrobat Pro, but within a few hours Firefox automatically changes it back, system-wide, to Firefox. This is quite frustrating, to say the least. I have tried the Options within Firefox, and choose (as I do for most files) to "Ask Me First" upon opening, but don't find any further file association info there. Nevertheless, even when viewing my files within Windows Explorer (File Explorer), I cannot keep my chosen files association of Adobe Acrobat Pro, as it continually reverts to Firefox.

How can I disable this behavior of Firefox 80.0.1 that is overriding my preference? Or is it a bug that can be fixed?

Thank you for your assistance.... Enten

I use the Bookmarks Bar extensively. But all the folders are the same color. I would find it much easier to find things quickly if I could change individual folder colors.

Any way to do this?

I'm already using Jscher's excellent UserChrome script to make the folders an attractive yellow, instead of gray. But can this be done for individual foders?

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

Issue #1 I have the automatic updates turned off, but Firefox occasionally updates anyway. How can I prevent this from happening?

Issue#2 This is somewhat related to issue #1. I turned off the automatic updates specifically because I did not want Quantum, but Firefox updated automatically, despite the automatic updates being turned off.. I have an older system, and it cannot handle running five processes for Firefox at one time. As a result, my system becomes increasingly slower as time goes by. As running multiple serves absolutely no discernible purpose, is there any way to prevent Firefox from running multiple processes?

Issue #3 Firefox recently updated automatically (again) without my permission, and since the most recent update, the pop up blocker is not working properly, specifically with Yahoo. It is blocking images, and windows that I bring up, but is not blocking what it is supposed to block, and will not let me add an exception for Yahoo. How can I fix this?

I am a Computer Science major, and have been using Firefox since it came out, but I am going to make a change if I can't fix these issues. Firefox is becoming more of a hassle than it is worth.

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it?

I have Set Foxit reader as my default app in the applications section of Firefox options. I have also set "allow" in the privacy and security section of options. When I click on a video file I received via email, a window pops up asking me "how do I want to handle this". It shows that Foxit reader is a default app and I, therefore, click on the box that says "always open files using this app". The next time I click on a different video file, doesn't automatically open. Instead, the how do you want to handle this window pops up again. Can somebody tell me how to correct this problem?

TIA James Birke.
