A different O/S than Windows

I was wondering if you were aware of any projects in the computer industry to come up with a new PC O/S since windows has become so unfriendly and autocratic with win 10 & I imagine 11 as well? As you are one of the more important players in the home and business computer world, I figure you folks would know much more than I, and know it way before I do. I do not want to get another windows machine. I had to fight it to get your superior web browser to be and stay the default browser over something called "edge", as an example. Us Boomers have been buying PC's for 40+ years and the software too. Then we choose what we want installed and ignore the rest. And we never heard of buying a program then also paying rent to some overlord. Talking to friends of similar age, this is a huge reason PC sales are falling. Win 10 &11 were such a traumatic shock to us. My wife (age 72) was so angry she went out and purchased Apple notebook, ipad and iphone and gave her windoze junk to the trash man after a thorough scrubbing. At age 72 she undertook learning a new O/S to get away from MSFT. (I try hard not to get her real angry!)

Thank you in advance for any help you may provide. I think quantum computers are a few years out yet, so there is a need.

I've gotten this issue on multiple web sites, and multiple browsers. I'm not sure why this is happening, and I've on the chrome forums too. In the screenshot you should be able to see on the left hand side a menu type listing, and it looks like just off center there is more text for the menu item. It also seems to happen for other links on a page as well.

Saturday, when I tried to check my Discover credit card account online, it needed to send me a verification code via text. I entered the code and everything worked OK. I understand that, from time to time, this needs to happen for security purposes. The last text I got this message from Discover for this was back in February.

But then, on Sunday, I got the same message. But this time, I never received the code. I waited about 10 minutes, then asked for a different code to be sent. I never got this one either. I called Discover, and they tried a few things & eventually verbally gave me a verification code. This worked and I logged in just fine.

On Monday when I logged in, again I was told that they needed to sent me another verification code. I didn't have time to deal with it, so I moved on.

Today, again it required a verification code. I didn't receive the text, waited 10-12 minutes or so, and requested a 2nd code. I never got this on either. I called Discover again, and was connected to their tech support people. We tried several options, then they suggested that I try using a different browser. I also have AVG on my computer. I tried that and got through to my Discover account instantly. They then suggested that I contact you to figure out what the problem is. After I got off the phone with them, I used AVG to log in and out of my Discover account maybe 5-6 times and never had any problem.

Can you figure out why my Discover account isn't working with Firefox? I am currently using version 103.0.2. Firefox has been my primary web browser ever since I got my first computer in March 2000, and this was then known as Netscape Navigator 3.??? I have never had any issue like this with any website I have used until this problem started with Discover.com.

THANKS!

Running Firefox 103.0.2 (64 bit) over windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E5440.

At the end of the day, I close Firefox. It takes several minutes for the 8 or so processes that linger in the system to exit. 2 minutes after that, I get the Firefox Crashed pop-up. I always send the crash report.

On restart, Firefox takes 3-5 minutes to load data from contile-images.services.mozilla.com before I can actually use the browser.

This happens daily, whether Firefox is the first or last application closed, or whether I wait several minutes after everything else is closed before I close Firefox.

Are there settings I can change to prevent this?

Thanks,

For the last week or two I have had an issue with Firefox closing my email (yahoo business mail) tab automatically, every time I download a file from an email.

After opening emial I click to download the file, i have the settings set to ask where I want it saved, and then either while I'm selecting the destination and labeling it, or right after the tab automatically closes. It happens both ways which suggests to me it's occurring after a specified amount of time, not based on completion of an action. And it's happening every time.

MacBook Pro Firefox 102.0.1

Any idea how to stop this?

I have already sent you the exact information that depicts what is happening! What I got back from you is question after question trying to figure out what the problem is! Pages of absolute junk that have nothing to do with my problem! What does it take to get through to you people?! You sent me a reply that asks me a question: "Does it work if you allow to go to the HTTP version of the website as in some cases a redirect only works via HTTP and you will eventually end up on a secure HTTPS site?"...but your email is unable to be replied to and you offer no way to tell you my answer! If I am reading your question right, the answer is "YES".

I was able to figure out how to get your system to upload the error image and it is here within. The snip says it pertains to a website called "Western Journal", but I have gotten the error message on other sites as well. I repeat, from my original missive, although it claims to only be able to go to a non-HTTPS site, when I choose to go to that site, it shows in the address box, "HTTPS". Have I been hacked? In 25 years of using a computer, I have never seen this error message that seems to contradict itself. Please help and let me reply to you emails.

As of 16 August Firefox Development Edition continually crashes.

Firefox standard is fine.

Tried the following 1. Shutdown and restart 2. Refresh 3. Uninstall, download and reinstall (4 times) 4. Chkdsk /r with restart then uninstall and reinstall 5. Open in troubleshoot mode 6. Tried incognito window 7. Tried disabling AV (Eset)

No change other than when the crash happens. Initially it would require opening a few tabs and browsing - now it crashes on startup.

Given that no other applications are behaving adversely, that Firefox standard works, that this was working find until 12 hours ago - my suspicion is it is something to do with the Developer edition.

Any other suggestions welcome.

When downloading files, Firefox no longer remembers the directory path the file was previously saved to on a per-URL basis.

Previous Firefox behavior: #1. download file from website "aaaa.com" to a folder on your computer, "user/frank/companies/aaaa/". #2. download file from website "bbbb.com" to a folder on your computer, "user/frank/companies/bbbb/". #3. Now, go back to the website "aaaa.com" and attempt to download another file. Firefox used to present the previously used directory for this particular URL, in this case, "user/frank/companies/aaaa/" - but instead, now it presents the most recently used directory path, which was "user/frank/companies/bbbb/".

This issue has appeared before and the advice to fix it was to go about:config, search for browser.download.lastDir.savePerSite and make sure it is set at TRUE. I have done this, but the issue remains: Firefox no longer remembers saved file directory paths on a per-URL basis.

MacOS 11.6.6 (Big Sur); Latest Firefox (103.0.2) Attempts to fix: Safe Mode - issue still present; Refresh Firefox - issue still present

Is there any advice on how to fix this problem? - Thxs.

I got a new laptop recently and yesterday I installed Firefox and started up Sync. Today, on my previous laptop, I notice that a couple years worth of history are now missing from the beginning of the time when I used it! What can I do? I have turned off Sync now because someone told me last year to do that when I had a problem with Sync, to keep it from spreading (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345759).

I recently installed Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit) on my brand-new Windows 11 HP ENVY desktop. Now matter how I decobnfigure Bing as a search engine, the browser always defaults to Bing when I search in the search field at the top. i even made google.com my home page, and even when I search on the page itself, it changes to Bing.

I don't think it was misbehaving like this on my previous computer that died. It was running Windows 10 and was up-to-date Firefox-wise in early July.

There is a screen shot of my configuration attached. The dropdown under the Google logo has no other items in the dropdown.

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

Error message says: "HTTPS not available on this site" Choices: : "Go back" or "Continue to HTTP only site". If I choose "Continue to HTTP site", the address bar shows that the address is indeed HTTPS! Have I been hacked? Do I have a virus? I can find no help elsewhere. I have saved the error message but, using your "Browse" below will not show it in my documents.
