I'm trying to figure out what on earth is wrong with this software. After installing the latest version, unbeknownst to me, after an hour or two of usage the browser fails to connect to any website, at all. Upon closing and re-opening the browser, I'm prompted that "you've launched an older version of Firefox" my bookmarks and history is corrupted, I need to create a new profile. Once the browser actually opens, I check the version, it's now reverted back to 87 where, it begins this absurd cycle all over again, downloading and installing 88.01.

What is this, only compatible with 20h2? My system does not yet have this.

In order to stop this madness. I've removed it, installed v74, threw a policy.json file together to block this from updating itself.

My computer crashed and when I openend firefox, all my tabs were gone, about 140, it was impossible to open recently closed tabs or previous session. I found about 20 files that might contain all the tabs but none of them are opened properly in the scrounger at https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html When I try to export it uncompressed, i get the message that the context of the box does not look like json, that's true because the box is empty after opening all 20 files. Even though one file even is 1.16mb. Does anyone has other advice on at least getting the url's from the file? You would expect at least one file to work right?

I'm a user slowly trying to wean off of Chrome and getting accustomed to Firefox as a new primary browser. Something that I've relied on quite heavily in the past was the use of the address bar's autocomplete function to get me to frequently used websites - in this case, the Subscriptions page from YouTube. I have attempted to fiddle with the options available to me, but it seems that no matter what I do on this browser, I am unable to have said page show up when I type in "y" - instead, the homepage for YouTube is the first thing to show up, which I explicitly do not want. I cannot permanently remove this by way of pressing Shift + Del, as it always reappears. I am positive that I have visited the target page (Subscriptions) enough that it should show up as the top result, and I am also positive that I have not visited the YouTube homepage, as I intentionally remove it from my browsing history if I ever accidentally access it. I have tried turning on/off different combinations of settings in the Address Bar options menu under Browser Privacy, I have attempted bookmarking the page to have it rise to the top of the search settings, and I have attempted the use of an add-on which blocks websites from appearing in search results (which unfortunately did not extend to the search results directly from the address bar).

I am grateful that this minor irritant is one of my only outstanding gripes with the browser at the moment, though nevertheless, I would like to know if there is any way to further customize the address bar dropdown results to prioritize websites I have actually accessed before over their root domain.

Thank you for your assistance.

change the start page

Hi!

I've unchecked the "Thunderbird Start Page" in the options/general box but it still goes to that instead of my inbox.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Tried to load the VPN program and could not connect to the internet thru it or even with my phone Hot-spot. The NPN was not connected either , but stopped all internet connections until I uninstalled it! Why pay for something that I can not use. I have used Firefox for many years with great success until I joined the VPN??? Can someone please tell me what I have done wrong or what is the Problem. I believe that a VPN is worth using but only if it works. Thanks.

I can not open my email site that I have used for years. All of a sudden it no longer opens. I get a note that says unable to log in. Probably wrong configuration, user name or password but all are correct. I need to know how to get my email open again. It finds the configuration but that is about it. I even do it manually but to no avail. JR

when opening a website link, from a source other than through Firefox, my home page also opens up as a second tab. This is annoying as I always receive a message asking if I want to close all tabs when I close down the web page I initially opened up. I never used to have this happen. How do I turn this off?

I was moving read messages from Inbox, into other Specific folders. Either my fingers, or my mouse "hiccuped" and message ended up in Another folder. Used the Undo function to put the message back, but then noticed a message Folder (was same level as Inbox) had been Moved into another Folder. NO More Undo left. The folder name started with an S, so I was Way down on my Folder list. NO WAY to move THAT folder Back Up a Level, to where it had been. Had to DRAG it All the Way UP the List of Folders to the Main Origin folder for that E-mail address. Since my Folder list, under that Address is LONG, I had to Temp drop it into a a few Other Folders, on the way UP. ALSO, On the Way Up, I had Dragged Another folder into Another folder. Had to Drag THAT one ALL THE WAY UP.

VERY Short Sample following: If "Work" got moved to Aunt Zelda.... NO UNDO. Would have to Drag and Drop Work up to "Gmail e-mail Someone@gmail.com" to get it back into Alphabetical Folder order (Inbox, Deleted, etc stay up top).

Gmail e-mail Someone@gmail.com Inbox Deleted Spam Junk Adam Beatrice Insurance John Religious >Relatives

    Aunt Sofie
    Aunt Zelda
    Uncle Brad
    Uncle Sam

Shop offers Work


                  • Is there a way to add a "Move Current Folder Up a Level" ????? Or is this option somewhere, there, already?

Eine Textdatei mit dem Editor erzeugen. Die Datei deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt nennen. Den Folgenden Text hineinkopieren oder schreiben:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Die Datei speichern und dann Umbenennen mit der Endung REG. Das heiß aus deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt wird deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.reg Dann die Datei ausführen. Die Datei legt den Wert DisableAppUpdate in der Reg an und setzt ihn auf 1, das stoppt Firefox Autoupdates. In den Firefox Einstellungen steht dann Updates durch Admin deaktiviert.

Um ds Rückgängig zu machen Eine DAtei mit folgemdem Inhalt erzeugen:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000000

Die Updates werden aktiviert bzw., deaktiviert indem man den Wert auf 1 oder Null setzt.


Meine Meinung dazu: So bekommt man wieder die Eigenständige Kontrolle über seinen Computer. Ein dreifaches Pfui an Mozilla, für diese selbstherrliche despektierliche, anmaßende und User abwertenden Zwangsupdates von Firefox. Ich brauche keine großen Bruder oder schlimmeres der sich um meine Sicherheit kümmert. Mozilla hat damit genau das getan was sie an Microsoft und anderen kritisieren, die niemals so weitgehend würden wie Mozilla. Das ist wirklich übele Bevormundung. Ich bereue denen mal Geld gespendet zu haben weil ich dachte die stehen für Freie, mündige Menschen und die Selbstbestimmung des Individuums. Von mir gibt es keine Cent mehr so lange das so ist. Zum kotzen; sich selbst mit Gemeinnützigkeit beweihräuchernde Gutmenschen, die sich Zeugen Jehovas gleich ausführen. Die machen auch Zwangsupdates und manipulieren andere. Pfui. So was finde man eigentlich nur in der Kirche und bei totalitären Systemen. In einer Demokratie hat das nichts verloren. Ich frage mich wie tief der geistige Abgrund bei denen inzwischen wirklich ist seit sie das gemacht haben und was sie wirklich denken. Denn mit dieser Sache muss ich die meisten ihrer Aussagen als gelogen betrachten. Menschen die wirklich für die Mündigkeit und Freiheit des Menschen stehen und diese respektieren, bauen nicht in eine Software von der sie zuvor Menschen abhängig gemacht haben Zwangsupdates ein und erklären sie ohne den Einzelnen zu kennen pauschal für zu dumm selbst zu bestimmen und auf die eigen Sicherheit zu achten. Das ist abwertend und menschenverachtend arrogant. Schlimmer noch das schafft bestenfalls abhängige Menschen, die verlernen auf ihre Sicherheit zu achten. Der Große Bruder macht es ja. Vieleiche wird Firefox ja von der NSA gesponsert, das wäre so deren Handschrift. Mit so was bereitet man den Weg für totalitäre System aber nicht für die Freiheit!

When using Firefox on my 2018 MacBook Pro the cursor will either jump to the address bar or close the window in which I have been entering text. This has been happening since I got the MacBook Pro. This does not happen with other browsers, only Firefox. It has continued with this issue through several OS updates as well as Firefox updates.
