When I click onto the Mozilla icon, nothing happens - I used to be able to select things to browse. It hasn't been that way for a while. Why should I not think that Mozilla is useless and irrelevant?

When I try to access google, youtube or gmail, I get an error saying "www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.". It only happens when I'm using Firefox. I tried deleting the cookies and even reinstalling, but nothing works. Please help. I miss youtube.

Introduction So I learned the hard way to never run sudo apt remove python3 on an ubuntu system. I'm running Linuxlite (Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) on a dell desktop (unsure of the model).

The Problem After looking at some guides and upgrading the operating system, I managed to get most of the fonts to display correctly. Sites with certain kinds of text still appear to be "too bold" (see images).

""What I've tried"" The command actually removed Mozilla, so I had to reinstall it. Updating it also didn't fix the problem. I have messed around with the font settings and nothing changed. It seems that only Mozilla is doing this because the Brave browser displays the fonts correctly. Other than that, I haven't really done all that much. Also the font as I write this is normal.

Thanks for your consideration!

I really miss the ability to have a "Save As" choice when i download pdf's or pictures from the web I'm always on the latest version of Firefox but only gets 'Open', Open with' and 'Save'...

Often the downloaded files gets lost in the wrong folder or hide itself with a crazy name that 'the web page' has given it.

AS both Google Chrome and Windows Edge offers that possibility and has for long, please include that feature in the next update...??

Thank You

Niels

When marking student scripts, I download and open a large number of files in a day. So I want it to be easy. But Firefox does not deliver what it promises. I want to click on the file link on the teaching website and the file to open automatically. But everytime I have to navigate to click in a dialog box in order to open the file. Is there any way to get Firefox to do what is says "Do this automaticall..."?

As far as I can see, these are bog standard .pdf, .docx and .doc files.

#bookmarksToolbarSeparator,#bookmarksShowAll{display: none !important;}

It no longer works in FF88. How to fix?

N.B. There wasn't a way to hide "other bookmarks" from the bookmarks MENU (This has nothing to do with the unrelated TOOLBAR issue, and the settings for that do not affect the menu)

A senior tech specialist employed by my ISP told me that Firefox will soon no longer be available since they can't compete with Chrome. I am mortified since I love Firefox but I'm wondering if it is true. I've encountered several websites which do not work properly with Firefox but work fine with Chrome. Examples of sites where I can no longer use Firefox and the problem(s) I encounter are the following: shop disney- can't log in; shutterfly - can't log in; my webmail - can read the email but can't send or reply;my local newspaper - can't do anything such as, reading the digital edition or place ads.

Can someone please tell me Firefox is not going to become obsolete? Also, why do I have all of the above problems when I use Firefox?

Thanks!

Hi, I am asking for your help in addition to your patience as I am not a tech savvy person AT ALL.

That being said, Firefox installed a new version of the browser last night as it has done many times over the years I have used their browser. Nothing looked different until I wanted to bookmark a website.

When I click on bookmarks, it use to have the option which said (I think) "bookmark this page" which is how I have always saved pages. That option is no longer there, it is gone. I do not make changes on this computer on my own. I do not know what I'm doing and have no one to help so if I were to mess something up, I'm in trouble.

I did read through posts before asking for help, went to the help section Firefox has. I went to the page which says Troubleshoot & diagnose Firefox problems. As I went through each step, nothing changed so I reinstalled Firefox. Obviously it did not change the issue I am having.

I am very careful when I get online; I don't click on links, pop up ads, etc. ever! Is there anyone who can help as I do not know what to do, and again, have no one I can ask or go to for help. I am attaching a screenshot which gives the info on the version of FF I have. I thank you all for your time and am keeping my fingers crossed this is a simple fix!
