It's a simple question: Why Firefox enforces by default extensions like Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google ? What really these extensions do?

Paradox#1: Firefox enforces to use those totally insecurity and unreliable companies! Paradox #2: Firefox don't even show those extensions mentioned above! Paradox #3: Even when I remove them from "Options->Search Engines" these ones keep being enabled and hidden! Paradox #4: Third party program needed to manage those Firefox hidden extensions! I Disable all above extensions by "CCleaner" and: Paradox #5: they comes back by default in every Firefox damn update!

I wish I'm wrong I would pleased if someone explain in an article, or even in few words, why all those. I think Mozilla should detailed explain.

Thanks in advance and Sorry for my English.

The document in question: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HZqJp4K6fueOxABqbgl9KafdtZOJUe8jkU6E42hDXc8

So I've been having this issue where this page refuses to load properly. I've tried incognito mode without any extensions enabled, and it seems to work there, but after some additional investigation today I've discovered that it's specifically when I'm logged into my google account that the error appears. To test this, I logged into my account in an incognito window, and the document started throwing the same error again. Logging out actually makes the document work as intended, no error.

Since this doesn't happen on Chrome (I can be logged into my account and load it just fine), I figured I'd post this here asking for potential answers. Again, this happens without any extensions loaded in incognito.

I've also deleted my google cookies without any extensions enabled, then logged back in. Same effect.

I realized at some moment i cant download any files shared from google drive. When i click download now the page just refresh and nothing happens. Regardless of size, 100MB or 10GB. I must use Chrome to download from there. It must have happened after some update, long time ago. I reinstalled firefox fully, cleared regkeys and all folders. Now i tried with fresh installed one without changing any settings. 64x like my system. Why firefox has a problem with that?

Google Reminder About New Terms of Service: Issue Resolved

When a Google search is done in Firefox, a pop up appears stating 'We're updating our terms of service. Get to know our new terms before they take effect on Mar 31 2020' and there are 'review' and 'got it' options.

I click 'got it' but the pop re-appears the next time the browser is opened and Googled is used again.

Is there a way to permanently block this pop-up from re-appearing?

Hi, Almost daily now, my Google Search Home Page suddenly changes appearance and a black bar appears at the top (screenshot attached). When it is like this, the search results also appear differently (2nd screenshot attached), with search results appearing in separate boxes. It stays like this for some hours and then, reverts back to normal. I never know why it changes, as I've never found out how to change it back myself. Can someone tell me why this is happening and how I can stop it. Any help much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My job requires searching for often a lot of images on Google. I am not sure if this is a Google of a Firefox problem. In this past week there has been a new information frame appear. Before when one clicked on an image it would be highlighted amid the search grid with some associated information (original site, image size etc). Now this pops out as a separate panel to the right of my browser screem. Due to the quick way I need to work, this is cumbersome and annoying.

Also if I right clicked and opened an image in a new tab, it would open with the image filling two-thirds of the screen on the left, which gave a decent view of it. On the right hand panel would be the information about site, title, caption etc. Now all of this is squished into a portrait sized panel that looks as though it has been designed for a tablet or phone. It also means with each image I am having to conduct an additional action to right click to expand to full size so I can actually get a decent view of what it is because it has been so squished down to only medium size by all the other data.

My question is this. Up until a few days ago this panel was not there. It would occasionally appear sometimes, especially if I was logged into a Google account but mostly not and would be gone next time I searched. From my investigation of this it is something that appears with some browsers and not others. If this is something that does/doesn't appear in Firefox, how do i make it go away?

My question is is how do I make this pop-up panel go away and just get the regular old image highlight? Much easier and less messing around to use, not to mention actually offered a better and clearer view of what the image actually was.

See the first uploaded image to see how Google Chrome presents https://maps.google.com/localguides.

See the second uploaded image for how Firefox shows the webpage, even when it's running in safe mode (all add-ons disabled). What's going on?

I also have Firefox Developer version installed on my Linux, and it doesn't have this problem. This problem is not just on this webpage but others as well.

So the issue i'm having is that the login page for google seems to be broken in some way. I have 2 google account. one for college and one for my youtube. my college one works but my youtube one is what seems to break the page. I can try and get it sign in to my youtube account by tell it to forget my other account but then i'm left with the sign in page and a next/login button that clicks and nothing happens. whenever I get the page to accept that the account exist and try and quick select it, it then loads forever and doesn't sign in. If i open the browser in private mode it doesn't have this problem though but I don't want to only use the private browser as I use my history to re-search things a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies... I have tried reinstalling firefox... I have tried scanning for viruses and malware... I literally don't know what else to do... I even tried removing my add ons. nothing worked. If anyone else might have some insight on this I look forward to the help. All I know for sure is that it's been about a week since this started.

Google can be so confusing I have 2 Apple tablets so when one was given a new password google came back saying you must update all your password devices, so when I entered the new password in the second tablet Google said you can’t use this password because it’s been used before.??????

   So do you have to have a separate password for each device ?
