Why I cannot change these settings:

  • Use custom settings for history
  • Firefox will remember your browsing, download, form, and search history.
  • Always use private browsing mode

I need this setting:

  • Never remember history

Or, maybe, that is the same?

I have the volume control all the way up. I turn the volume control on videos all the way up. I have just updated Firefox. The sound is too low. Is there an add-on? It used to be OK, not now.

I upgraded my video card in windows 10 64 bit. The card lets me connect through HDMI finally. But Firefox won't display as before. It now looks like the version of Firefox for my linked cell phones after trying multiple restore efforts. Did Firefox change so the desktop version looks like it was made for my phone? I linked my phone and it seems to have overwritten my desktop settings. Are they recoverable, as in older recent backups of my data still saved somewhere on your server? Thanks much!

Firefox has been updated on my PC at least 100 times. It ALWAYS brings up the screen asking me to verify if thiis program can make changes to my computer, Why? Is v 102.1 the latest? I don't know I see other comments about other versions.

And so many more issues I am about to pull every last hair out of my head. I don't even know how your Bookmarks work, nothing like I've ever seen. And, why does Firefox Browser open in different pages, sometimes. I'll have 2 rows or 3 rows of add-ons. Sometimes the font is so tiny I cannot read it, other times it's just fine.

I know what you are going to do. You'll give me some instructions with words that mean nothing to me. Then you'll provide articles I can read, and they mean nothing to me either. I AM NOT an IT person. I just want to turn on my computer and have it work properly JUST ONCE! Wouldn't that be great, then maybe twice in a row!

I thoiught i would be happy with Firefox, but I'm not. Just like I'm not happy with Windows platforms from 7 onward. Instead of making things easier for the everyday user all you do is make things more confusing and complex. I read some of the questions on this website and I don't even know what they're talking about.

If clearing history & deleting everything, wouldn't i lose items i want to keep ? I usually go through, deleting one item at a time, so as not to lose everything. This can take awhile ! What am I doing wrong ? I really like Firefox, by the way. I feel 'safe' using it, like the features, just everything about it !

I have tried everything and just have to go to chrome to finish checkout on nordstrom.com, this is a major retailer and I can't believe i am the only one having problems. I clear site data and cookies, I check protection on and off, nothing works, I have to use chrome. If I have to use chrome with just this site (so far), why bother with firefox at all?

It seems that since an upgrade to Windows 11 my wife is unable to make a credit/debit card payment for online groceries. This has worked fine until the past month and when payment is requested the site shows an error.

The payment works on Chrome and on Android but not it seems on Firefox.

Any suggestions?

So, back in the days when I installed Firefox, it would automatically pin it to the taskbar. When I opened Firefox, the newly-opened Firefox window appeared separated from the pinned icon in the taskbar. I liked this because it allowed me to open new windows faster. Now, I had to uninstall and re-install Firefox (the last version as of today) because of some problem. Now, this separation no longer occurs. If I open Firefox, the opened window and the pinned icon in the taskbar become the same thing. How can I fix this?

I am using Windows 8 Pro btw.

I attached a screenshot to show how it looks like.
