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.

Hello Everyone - Today the background colour of both tabs bar and search bar changed to a wishy-washy pale blue which makes it much harder to read anything there. I am not aware that I have changed any setting myself. And I dont recall any FF update yesterday or today... I have looked through all the FF "settings" options and found nothing relevant there. Is there maybe an option buried somewhere to change the background colour? Oh, and I am not a geek or a nerd, so cannot understand any nitty-gritty stuff! Thank you for your time.

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.

I haven't been able to update Firefox (Mac, desktop) since version 82 because all updates use a font I can't read. Websites are displayed correctly, but bookmarks, most Firefox preferences (including about:config), tab headings and search imputs are as shown in the screenshots.

Today I downloaded version 90 and it's still happening. Please see the screenshots of the Firefox welcome screen, and the font selections in the preferences. The version for the screenshots is a new, clean download using default settings, with no addons or bookmarks.

I don't know if the font is a real language or not.

I went to update this morning when asked and then got the "profile missing" error pop up. I searched for the folder as advised but its no longer in my library folder.

Any suggestions? I really need the info in firefox and would not have even updated if i knew this was even thought of happening.

Also, tried to download and install firefox again and still get the same error..

Need help changing primary e-mail address on Mozilla support forum

I set about updating my e-mail address on this forum. I followed a hyperlink which had been e-mailed to me automatically in the past by the forum, and which pointed to support.mozilla.org

The first screen (whose URL I don't want to try to get right now because doing so might sign me out of my Support.Mozilla.org account) offered only an option for creating a new account, not signing into an existing account. It turns out that this is a very significant wording mistake that needs to be corrected.

Since I thought my existing account didn't exist anymore, I made a new account with my new e-mail address.

Then I found that the short username assigned to my new account had a "1" suffixed - which meant that my existing account did exist after all. So I deleted the new account. I also managed to sign into my existing account by using the misleadingly named "Create a new account" method.

The next problem was how to change my primary e-mail address. There is no evident way to do this. I eventually found article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts which confirmed my suspicion that the recommended workaround is to add the new address as a "secondary address," then delete the primary address. This is another significant issue that needs to be corrected. I'm registered on possibly dozens of Web forums etc. & all of them (except Mozilla) simply let me change my e-mail address when I need to.

Anyway, now apparently the support forum doesn't let me add my current e-mail address as a secondary e-mail address, because there is still a record of this address on the defunct account that I just now created. Also, the error message here is worded incorrectly (it claims that my new e-mail address is the same as my old e-mail address).

Can I please have assistance from a forum admin in getting my e-mail address updated, without change to my short username.

I also wish there were a more obvious way to ask for help (or raise defect reports) regarding the forum itself.

Thanks for your help.

It seems that after the last update, 7/19/2021, PayPal generated packing lists only print the left 2/3 of the packing list image. The right 1/3 is completely blank. The Address line on the top of the page and the cut here line on the bottom both print properly across the page.

Is this due to the latest update, perhaps a glitch? All the settings are set the same way as before the update.

All troubleshooting failed to fix this issue. The packing list prints properly in Msoft Edge.

The last Firefox update has messed with my printer settings and the entire page (width) doesn't print on 1 page anymore. It completely cuts it off and doesn't print it. This happens in multiple programs when I print so it seems like it has to be Firefox and not any of the multiple programs. I've looked at the FF settings but nothing is jumping out at me as needing to be adjusted. Any help is appreciated. Thx

When I try and print a page - say a receipt from an Amazon purchase, or a medical bill, or anything else!!! - firefox will not print the $$s on the right side of the page. It doesn't matter - when I select print - if I go to 70% (which i normally use) of if I go to 60% or 50%, the page prints, but the right side with the actual cost amount is missing. The full page DOES show in the print preview, but NOT on the printed page. Please help. I DO NOT like the new print window...may decide to - after many years - abandon Mozilla and Firefox. Lousy change several months ago in the Firefox print window and selection/option screen. It is REALLY aggravating and I, for one, do NOT like it. Please help me print the whole damned page. Thanks for the attention and a quick response. V/r, Dennis BTW, Win 10 Home, on a fast gaming desktop (works well), using Cox Communications as my cable provider for internet.
