I have been a loyal Firefox user for umpteen years – but no more! Without asking, my browser updated to version 89, and immediately, I didn’t like it. It looked washed out, difficult to tell the difference between tabs (I routinely have 30+ tabs open at once), plus it was slower. The biggest “peeve” was when I tried to enter a Google search question in the “Search” box, but Firefox kept jumping up the URL bar. Gawd I hate that! That did it! I decided to revert back to version 88 but you decided you would “punish” me for my decision. I lost all my bookmarks, passwords and preferences. I am a computer support volunteer and I work primarily with senior citizens, however I try to help anyone who needs my help. When I setup a new computer for a client, I usually install Firefox and Chrome, explaining that many people do not like the default browser that comes with Windows. From this point on, I will no longer recommend nor install Firefox. You lost a customer today. Congratulations.

I was really angry that there seems to be no way to actually send an email "TO" Mozilla. Instead, they depend on you volunteers to take the heat for them. If you know of anyway to actually get this information to them, I would appreciate it.

Newer release of Firefox auto-fill username and password when they should not. I have a web application that has a list of people. Optionally (form is even hidden requiring a click to see) a person can be a user (rare). My username and password are auto filled in ALWAYS now for the person (even when the form is not showing). Can I just change the field names (username, password) in the jsp and have Firefox NOT fill mine in automagically? Or if not, how do I tell the browser that these are normal fields - leave them alone PLEASE (do not auto-fill)?

Hello,

How can I permanently deactivate this nagging update reminder in the upper right corner (green arrow over Application Menu button) and frequent pop-ups in upper right corner where I have to repeatedly click on "Not Now"?

I'm not upgrading to v89 because the next update will once again BREAK my userChrome.css code and my user interface (with tabs on bottom and custom button images) will appear scrambled.

I'm quite tired of having to jump through hoops and search for CSS solutions to fix these issues every few updates. It causes me too much anxiety.

I'm sticking with v88.0.1 for the forseeable future.

How can I shut off this annoying update reminder permanently?

Thanks.

Recently, I think it was yesterday when I updated FireFox developer to 88.0b2 (64bit) on my OS Windows 10 Pro (x64) 22H2 19042.870.

Firstly I noticed "take screenshot" option dissapeared from "3 dots" on the URL bar. Secondly, the "paste" (right click or CTRL + V) stopped working.

I cannot paste text neither from my Notepad or some Text Editor as usuall to some input field or textarea on some Website.

I can copy text from some input field of an Website, but cannot paste the text inside it from a Windows Explorer or whatever.

What is that wrong with FireFox stable/unstable versions?

I've had problems on "normal" FireFox, now I got them either on "developer". I really like this browser, but more and more it seems I would need to switch to some other just because.

Is it possible for Mozilla Firefox to develop a feature that can delete downloaded files directly within the browser, like Edge does?

First of all, thank you for browsing and answering! Whenever I download a file by mistake, I have to go to File Explorer to delete it, even though Firefox can locate the downloaded file directly, but this still wastes some time. So to save time, can Firefox also introduce an option to delete a file after right-clicking on the downloaded file, just like Edge?

(New to the Firefox community, so please don't overly accuse me if I'm wrong)

Following the deprecation of the FTP protocol in Firefox I have, as a workaround, set Excel to open all ftp links in Firefox for me. However, ideally, I would like a custom PowerShell script to handle all ftp links for me in Firefox. But to do so you would have to pass arguments to an application (in this case PowerShell) in handlers.json file. I guess that is not possible, or am I wrong here?

Until I updated to 88.0 64 bit, when I right clicked on a page there was a link to View Page Info right next to the View Page Source link. Now it is gone. I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click. I am 100% sure that this was not done intentionally. That would be very silly and absurd to do.

I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

Hi,

Even though I live in Czech Republic, I set up Firefox to use English. After reading some help here I had to reinstall it using different (EN) installer. That's a bit odd but OK, it worked them.

But when Firefox installed an update, it was again in CZ. :/

Thanks for fixing that.
