I did not know until now that the Firefox Notes service was being discontinued. Now, the app disappeared from my phone and there is no option to get the synced notes as the Firefox Notes status article mentions. I have some important information on there. Is there a way to recover it?

I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.

I am experiencing a problem with drop down menus, on all websites, when using firefox. I had to post this question using the Edge browser, because the mandatory "Which topic best describes your question?" requires opening a drop down menu, which I cannot do with firefox. It has been this way for quite some time now, so I don't use firefox that much anymore. I always keep firefox updated, and I have tried disabling all plugins/addons to see if they were causing the problem. No luck.

Any ideas on how to solve this would be most welcome.

Is it possible to have a default container? When I open a site in a container, if I then use the open window to go to a URL that I have not assigned a container to, i would like this new site to open in a "default" container. I believe the Facebook container works like this, it only allows Facebook related sites to be opened in that container any other sites are open in a new window/tab. An example, if i open a bank URL in a "Banking" container, log off and click on another unrelated bookmark (say Mozilla help), It would be nice if it opened in a separate container I had assigned to be the default container.

My bookmarks are being stored in another file.

Previously my new bookmarks always were found in "Other Bookmarks" folder when I chose "Show All Bookmarks." Now they are going to a folder within a folder within a folder that has nothing to do with new bookmarks. Is anyone aware of some method to redirect Firefox so that new bookmarks end up in the "Other Bookmarks" folder as they had previously?

I'm using Firefox 86.0 on a home PC.

I am older and use the zoom function on many web pages. After this last update the Zoom function seems to be broken. I Zoom to 133% for a more comfortable read on a news site (Guardian)... go into the article and have to zoom again. Go back to the home page and it is fine until it finishes reloading and it snaps back to original size. Have to zoom again. None of these zoom setting remain consistantly. This has only become an issue since I restarted Firefox to install the last update.
