There is no indication of progress while a webpage is downloading. I'm looking for something like the rotating hour glass, or a rotating circle of dots. Only when the process is done do we get the page's icon on the tab. As it is, I never know if my request to open a webpage is working or if the computer has locked up. It must have changed with the latest update because, although I can't remember exactly how Firefox previously indicated loading in progress, I instantly noticed the LACK of it as soon as I booted up the newest version.

Thank you.

Any ideas?

Dear community,

I would like to bring up a topic that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I am developer and frequently access my own services on unsecured http servers for testing. Spin up a new docker container, test it, tear it down. No SSL required, no time to mess with encryption.

But if you type in https just a single time for your http server, you are f*#&ed. Sorry for the wording, but this is how it is. You think "OH NO, WHAT DID I DO? NOT AGAIN!!!" Because it is just impossible to access the service with http in the future, Firefox has it locked to SSL (Domain and Port). But of course there is no SSL so it will NEVER work.

Latest example: JetBrains TeamCity. They have a simple Docker container I want to access with Firefox. I spin it up, connect with Firefox with http and it immediately tells me "Secure Connection Failed". WHAT? WHY? I typed http. Why secure? Why can't I simply connect? Using curl on CLI just gives me a beautiful HTML response.

I understand that for the majority of users SSL is a good thing. But shouldn't there at least be an OPTION to disable all this enforced SSL usage? My beloved Firefox is my everyday productivity killer. It makes me sad.

Previously (1-2 years ago) Firefox stored all of my Download History for at least 6 months. Now it only stores this History for 7 days w/o access to older downloads. How can this be changed so I can view at least 6+ months?

Thanks,

I am using Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and until yesterday all was fine. However today when I accessed BBC news the website displays okay until I click on any of the video news clips. Then I keep getting a message the video content is not available. My wife opened BBC news on her computer running Ubuntu 18.04LTS and BBC video content works fine in Fire fox. I cannot work out what is blocking the video content.

Good day!

Today I have opened Mozilla Firefox as usual and for some reason, everything was gone, by everything I mean EVERYTHING, no logins, no passwords saved, no bookmarks (I had probably around a thousand of them) no search history, nothing, I was trying to restore my previous session (with more than 100 tabs open... yeah I know) and nothing happened. For some reason the starting page was Yahoo instead of my normal Google search page... but I don't think it was that typical virus that replace everything with Yahoo and makes it impossible to change it back, because I was actually able to change the starting page back to google without any problems and my Malwarebytes didn't detect anything, so I am absolutely baffled as to what happened. I was trying the sync service but it doesn't work at all, nothing is restored. It's almost like someone broke into my account synced with everything and then erased it all from the server... is it even possible? Or could something overwrote or replace the Mozilla Firefox files on my computer? Where should I look for my original files, settings, saves, etc. on my computer, maybe something has been saved? Maybe I can find something? Please help, it is really painful to lose thousands of websites that I had saved and organized in many different bookmarks and folders.

Kind regards, Simon

Since Facebook released their new design to make it look more like Twitter, the website now runs slowly. The yellow bar appears saying that the tab is slowing down the browser, do I want to wait or stop the tab. The page freezes so I cannot interact with it or scroll up or down. Is this a firefox problem? Should I use the Firefox Profiler?

Had a problem with an add-on that resulted in all add-ons being deleted. As I wasn't sure what caused the problem, I deleted Firefox and reinstalled it. After the reinstall no add-ons were present. I added back 1 that I could remember, but the second one is gone. I do not remember the name of the add-on but found it very useful in managing pop-ups, videos automatically playing, etc. Would really like to get it back. By any chance, does Firefox store add-on information so that I might be able to find the missing add-on?

Why does Firefox keep changing my default search engine to Yahoo? I only want to use Google. I go into the preferences, I delete "BrowserDefault," and have it so only Google is shown as a search engine (see screenshot) and everything works fine. But a day or two later--and this has happened a dozen times now--the "BrowserDefault" is back and Yahoo is once again my default search engine. This happens over and over and over again, and I just want Yahoo deleted and gone forever.

Why is Firefox making these changes without my permission?
