There is a lot to love about Firefox. However, it has perhaps THE worse history searching tools of any browser. You cannot search by date, just "Last 7 Days" or whole months. Even then you cannot see on which date the search was performed: stupid and inexcusable.

On numerous web pages, the text description of a symbol obscures other info on the page. For example, the eye symbol to toggle on/off a password visual in a sign on block is obscured or covered by the word "SHOW". How do I remove these text descriptions?

I have been using Firefox (my primary browser) with Express VPN for two years. Lately Firefox will not download a home page if the VPN is connected. If I disconnect the VPN, Firefox will load, but at a very slow rate (close to a minute). I have tried starting Firefox with extensions disabled which had no effect. I have also communicated with Express VPN and have submitted diagnostic data to them. They state that since Chrome and Edge works fine with Express VPN, that the issue is with Firefox. I have used Firefox for quite a while and like the platform . . . but I must use a VPN and if the choice has to be made, I will become an Edge or Chrome user. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Clicking a link in email from my insurance company always yields error 404, file not found. Saw notes from 2017 about removing all data about a domain but can not find a way to do that in current version. Clicked link today, 4/6/2021, got error "HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found" This has been happening for a long time. I have cleared cookies and all data, removed & reinstalled Firefox, still same issue.

For over two years I've been using Firefox to login to my accounts on Chase.com

About 3-4 weeks ago I suddenly started being unable to login to my accounts as follows:

    open www.chase.com
    click on "Sign in" button
    Firefox goes to https://secure03b.chase.com/web/auth/dashboard#/dashboard/overviewAccounts/overview/index
    page never loads

This page loads properly when using Safari Version 14.0.3

Running Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) under macOS Big Sur Version 11.2.3

What can I do to get the site to work properly in Firefox?

How much longer before I can send Firefox feedback. The new print dialogue has no place to vary the resolution of the print (DPI) and secondly, it would nice if Firefox remembers the scaling setting after switching to fit to width.

This happened about 3 weeks ago. I use Firefox as my Browser. My email provider is hover.com Previously I had problems when I used Chrome ... all of a sudden it did not display any of my emails ... hover could see them but I could not. I freaked out thinking all my emails had disappeared! I went back to Fire Fox. now another weird problem. What has Firefox done that could affect, for gawd's sake, being able to see a video?

I hope to hell you can fix the problem.

In the mean time I'm using Microsoft Edge.

Firefox Developer Edition On Ubuntu - Update Hassles

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.

Please see the attachment, which was the screenshot of a PDF file that was printed from a webpage.

A bitmap-like font was used, which made the text blurry.

I tried setting "layout.css.font-variations.enabled" to false. It didn't help.

This is firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Void Linux x86_64.

Some help, please?

When I check Task Manager, there are 7 or more Firefox programs running... the other day there were 15! So today I rebooted (Firefox causes crashes and lock-up all the time) and then opened Tack Manager and then ONLY one program (besides all the programs running in the background) and the image shows you what I got! Why the hell is Firefox opening all these program clones of itself? These are NOT onscreen, but they are always in Task Manager. NOTE: The only open window shows only one tab. Now, if I close Firefox all those lines disappear. But when I reopen it, the number goes up! every time. What the heck???? I've been a supporter, used Firefox for 10+ years but may have to go to the dreaded Chrome is this continues. I can't reboot my computer every day because of Firefox - sometimes twice.

Recently I added a Meta Mask extension on Fire Fox. Invested a few hundred dollars in a crypto. Then today I reset my Fire Fox password. Now the Meta mask sidebar icon gone. Trying to logon to Meta Mask, my Meta Mask password was invalid. Tried to get a new one but message was they had no account with that email address.

I have the restore list. Can that be used? If so how? Is there another way tor restore?

I imagine you have my email address, but just to be sure: moicheozick@hotmail.com

Since the last update the button to show the Pocket list disappeared from the "library" dropdown. The pocket button in the address bar still exists and from there one can show the pocket list but this unintendedly saves the current page to pocket. If found no other way the enable a Pocket button in the toolbar.

Is Mozilla deprecating Pocket? Otherwise this change make no sense?!
