I have been a user of Netscape/Communicator/Firefox since the first day Netscape came on the market. I talked my father into buying a lot of Netscape stock the day it first appeared on the market.

It is time for our association to end. I am retired now and on a fixed pension. My ISP is raising their rates again to pay for the 1Gbps (or is it 10Gbps) service I do not use or need or have available. It is an across the board rate increase regardless what you use. It is time for me to downscale and the only other ISP to serve my area only offers 768Kbps.

I need to stop loading all the junk that appears every time I change what page I am looking at or that I follow a link. I have tried using about:config and setting permission.default.image to "2" and cannot stop the images. I have tried adding the AddOn ImageBlock and I still get the images. I have tried adding Ghostery and no more help.

As I am unable to block the images, it is with great regret, we have come to the parting of ways. I do not like Chrome but I can block the images there.

Good bye my old friend. I will miss you.

As soon as I start the Firefox Browser, it is connecting to multiple IP addresses. Any idea why it is doing so? Is there a way to stop it? Is it a privacy and security issue?

I have already changed most of the setting as mentioned in the following article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections

Some of the IP connections have stopped after making those changes. But there are still few connections. They are: - 35.244.181.201 (This is Google LLC) - 13.227.142.108 (This is Amazon) - 117.18.237.29 (This appears to be Verizon Media) - 54.70.109.38 (This is Amazon) - 52.38.31.225 (This is Amazon)

It will be great if someone could shed some light on this issue. Thanks in advance.

Hello,

I upgraded my FireFox to the latest version 88.0 today, and noticed some changes on right click menu. In the old version, the keyboard shortcut key is a to copy a link, but now it was changed to L. That is really inconvenient. As you know, when you right click a link using the mouse, your right hand is still holding the mouse, and not easy to press the letter L on the keyboard.

The old menu option is "Copy Link Locaton", but the new one is "Copy Link".

Is it possible to customize the keyboard shortcut of right click menu, please?

Thank you! Brian

Hi, FF 89.0b2 Developer edition now contains a "fake editable" search field at the home page (the sentence contains in the class attribute so I used it here), when one start typing in it and the letters appear in the address bar.

For me personally this is partly non-intuitive partly annoying. I never met a scenario in UI of other programs, when typing in one place (where the caret is) show actual letters at another place.

Is this feature is here to stay or are there plans to to make it customizable? I used ff home page search for ages, now I installed a new tab home page extension with manually setting www.google.com in it.

Thanks

Hi to all the developers:

To take screenshoots was a great success, and it was quite agile to take snapshots with the "page actions" menu, but the last update (FF 88.0) disappeared that option.

Please return the "Take screenshoot" button" to the "page actions" menu. This seems to be an unimportant thing, but having the button on the toolbar reduces space, especially if we take into account that there are other buttons showing information. (Img1)

But the worst thing is when some web pages appear in pop-up windows that do not show any buttons. So, how can I take a screenshot if the capture button does not appear. (Img2)

Please keep in mind that there are some people that need to take several screenshots and it is faster to activate the capture and select the desired area both with the mouse.

Since the feedback page seems to be not working, I write it here with the greatest respect, to get this to the developers.

Thank you in advance.

How does one turn off the Firefox Updates completely ? I have disabled the auto updates but with multiple FF windows open the update request tab that comes up is causing me problems. There needs be an option to turn it off completely so only manual updates can be done.

Its getting to the stage with this where I will dump Firefox completely if this isnt done.

Also feedback to Mozilla has been disabled for months. Whats happening there ?
