firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher

I have seen various work around from a year or so ago but presume this would have been fixed by now?

Many thanks,

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

Every time I shut down my computer, Firefox needs to download all over again when I power up my computer. I need to sign in and start the sync all over again. After I customize my bookmarks on Firefox, these do not remain stable once I power up the computer and open up the Firefox App again. It always seems like it's downloading the app for the first time. Syncing is a mess. Is there any way I can keep this application stable even after I shut off and power up the computer again?

Hi all, For years, I have used Firefox to download audiobooks from Audible.com. I go to Audible.com, open my library, click download, and then a pop up shows the .aax file I'm going to download. The problem - In the past week, the pop up window now shows that I'm about to download a .mp4 file. That doesn't play nice with Apple Books or my iPhone. I've called Audible several times, but they haven't been able to help. If I use Safari, the .aax file is downloaded correctly. This is a Firefox issue. Any ideas here?

Thanks for your time and help! --Scott

I am having problems clearing Facebook cookies and data storage. I have cleared the cache numerous times and always FB is at the top of the list with 0 cookies but 17,179,869,184GB Data Storage. I delete that as well and it comes back. I have run my Smartscan and optimized. This showed up recently and it makes Firefox very, very slow. What are some other options to try

Firefox suddenly saving Audible files as mpeg4 video files instead of aax

For some reason when downloading audiobooks from Audible, the download window in Firefox is categorizing the files as mpeg4 (video) files using the .mp4 file extension. However, unlike audio .mp4 files, Firefox is encoding them as VIDEO .mp4 files. The files do not open in iTunes nor media player as (obviously) they aren't actually video files.

The files download properly as .aax files in Safari and Chrome so this is a Firefox issue and a recent one at that; thus, it could be related to the recent Version 93 update. There are a few others who have mentioned this issue in the community forum, but as far as I can tell no one at Mozilla has actually addressed the issue or offered help.

Yes, you can change the file extension to .aax once downloaded and it opens fine. The point is that there is no discernible reason the files should be categorized as video files in the first place, and since this function has been working for years until recently this seems like a bug the Mozilla team should fix.

What's the story with Firefox being so madly in love with iTunes, the moment I open Firefox, iTunes opens. Worse even. I can't close iTunes. It keeps opening up until I close Firefox.

Is this some kind of another MANDATE now? Part of the NWO? You MUST accept iTunes to jump into your face if you use Firefox?

Makes me dump this piece of intrusive waste for good, really. I am so sick and tired of this Tech-Tyranny ruling our brains, telling us what we MUST WANT and accept.

I've written about this before, but no help? I'm using Firefox Mac 78.15 (up to date). When I go to CNN and select a video, a thumbnail (still image) of the video appears, but no player with controls, so no video. When I do the same on Chrome, I get a video in a video player, which plays just fine. Also, all other videos on FIrefox (YouTube Fox News, etc.) play just fine?
