Until the most recent update of Firefox, I was able to access atrribute data of a GIS map feature on the GIS Open Data, State of Michigan website:

https://gis-michigan.opendata.arcgis.com/datasets/2020-voting-precincts/explore?location=44.909859%2C-86.310800%2C6.97

Now, I can not click on any feature. I can do this, however, using Chrome. What is the issue, here?

I realize this may not be a browser issue. But, I'm pulling my hair out trying to find a solution to my problem and I'm hoping someone at Firefox may have a solution or suggestion. My problem is, how in the world do I get help or support with my Yahoo email account. Yes, the site has help and support links, but you have to pay to use the. Frankly, rather bazaar you have to pay for support when you're the client. So, does anyone at Firefox have a solution or suggestion to access help/support to Yahoo emails accounts or Yahoo without paying for the support? Thank you.

Dear Sir.

In the search section of Firefox for a topic in Firefox right at the home page... when I type a topic to search.... it transfers my typed information to the very top of the page leaving the middle title box for search blank. I can't see what I'm typing in properly because of this...........

In Microsoft Edge this type in search works perfectly...You type it in the big search box and it then searches perfectly...and you can see better what your typing in......

In Firefox it's showing a search box to type in your information but converts it to this tiny box on top of the page.....it's terrible to use compared to Edge....

Can this be modified to work like the search page in Microsoft Edge with a Firefox update?

Thanks for your help....Leonard C.

I am running Firefox 100.0. When I go to certain websites reCAPTCHA is preventing me from accessing the site. Error message: Please upgrade to a supported browser to get a reCAPTCHA challenge.

I enabled Pop-ups for those sites to no avail. Zoom.us and sedar.com are 2 websites causing problem but only on one computer.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but no difference. I disabled Norton 360 and made no difference. No problem if I switch browser.

How do I change my "saved" email Address in your browser? It currently has my very old email address: [edited email from public] @cox.net. Many websites display that old setting associated with my info/reply. In my canned responses, I can change/update my name, phone #, etc....but cannot repeat cannot change the email address. The block displays: [edited email from public] @cox.net. I have went to settings, privacy & security, etc in your application to search how I can update this Old Email Address. Your application always sends email to my correct address: [edited email from public] @gmail.com but when I reply to the site/request my response/page displays the old incorrect email. Please Please advise how I can correct this severe problem. It prevents me from donating to viable causes/programs because my reply lists my incorrect email address.....BTW I will be most most happy to donate to you guys if we can get this error corrected. Thank You in advance for our help. Wayne Bostic, [removed phone# from public], [removed email from public]

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

When I am in about:preferences#general, the Find in Settings box has it's active field set up right when access to this page is provided, when I off-click to the side of that box, it does nothing about the control field which is active, highlighting stuff can make that blinking stop and hold in a static state but only clicking other control areas can I get that active field to stop blinking in the Settings box, that forced active field is a pet peeve for me on account of it starting active when the page goes up but also because it has an invisible hitbox outside the visible one, and cannot be offclicked in a casual way, I want that not to be active when that page opens and I want the hitbox reduced to the visible one and I want an offclick in the rest of the white field to deactivate the active field in the Settings box.

I don't have the Use the address bar for search and navigation checked, though I do have the Add a search bar to toolbar enabled, when I am on the Firefox Homepage I have the Web Search turned on, when I try to type something in the homepage search, it automatically redirects the text to the address bar area which is where I want the address bar stuff, not the omnibus search that everyone explodes all over their pants over, so the search area is rendered useless.
