Twice in the past six months I have downloaded 'upgrades' to the Firefox browser, only then to have to spend half an hour resetting my options - home page, task bars, apps, etc. It's just not worth bothering to get the upgrades. Why do the upgrades mess with my personal settings?

A few days ago I started to get random popup ads. All of a sudden an ad will op up that says something like "you are at rusk, get Macafee" or "get Norton" etc. The ads pop up in the center of my screen and are about 20% the size of my screen. I have to click the x to get them to close. Sometimes there is the "don`t show me this again" option at the bottom left but even when I click ok the ads continue to pop up.

I`ve tried a few things but can`t figure it out. I`m retired and not a geek so it can get pretty frustrating pretty quick. I`ve lost my patience to scour through help articles looking for the exact sentence I need.

A step by step tutorial would be nice, thank you. I am using a laptop with windows 8.1. I use Firefox.

Thanks David

Opening PDF files from websites always worked, but now for some reason this no longer works. A new tab quickly opens, but immediately closes again. Could be the website, but how do I find out.

Simply downloading PDFs from another website works fine.

I hope you can help me, because I have only this ONE e-mail address for EVERYTHING. I have NEVER gotten this message before, & there is NO reason I should be getting it now. I was JUST THERE, IN my e-mail account & it worked just fine. I am still on the same browser section & went to check for an incoming message & Firefox won't let me into my ONLY e-mail account, for NO good reason. I DEMAND some HELP getting into my E-MAIL. I NEED ACCESS to this account. I do EVERYTHING through that account, & I HAVE NO other. PLEASE HELP!!!!! *NOW*!!! I'm PANICKING! RESPOND IMMEDIATELY. I would also include a screenshot, but your STUPID new browser updates no longer ALLOW me to. I'm starting to HATE this new Firefox, it SUCKS, just so you know. I need IMMEDIATE help, so someone had BETTER get to me in a CHAT right NOW. I CAN'T get an E-MAIL from you, because YOU WON'T LET ME IN to my ONLY e-mail account, so WHAT am I supposed to do NOW? You can't even CONTACT me. I'll tell you what, yes you can. You WILL have SOMEONE call me at THIS number IMMEDIATELY to HELP me get into my E-MAIL account > 1 - 719 - 890 -1660 > THANK you.

All of a sudden today I cannot open my gmail. All other bookmarks open fine. When I click on gmail, the tab shows it is trying to open but it doesn't. When I close Firefox and try to reopen it I get the message "Firefox is already running but it is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." When I click close it opens FIrefox. I have rebooted my machine and tried to open Firefox again and it opens but I still cannot open my Gmail. It is my laptop and I am on Windows 8. My email is kwrisue@gmail.com. I am not having the issue with Chrome so I can get to my email that way.

Hi,

in the latest version of Firefox (updated June 2021), the home page had the icons shrink in size considerably.

I'm visually impaired, and this change had made the home page unusable. It's just too hard to see!

Is there a setting to adjust the homepage icons back to their larger size? They used to be 2-3 times the size, and really useful. The boxes the pics are in are still the same, but the icons displayed are tiny now, at least to these tired old eyes.

Thank you in advance! Tony

In previous versions, I could open an image within the same tab, now you can only open it in a new tab and if it's on a malware site, tough luck. Also, for one Firefox process there used to be a single window in the taskbar, now it's one for each tab, and that's completely pointless.

My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

For some reason I can no longer access a state website (https://legis.wisconsin.gov/) from my laptop, either with Firefox (my normal browser) or Chrome. I get the message that says my request has 'timed out'. However, I CAN access that site from my smart phone, using Firefox. I haven't intentionally changed any settings on my laptop. I have no problems accessing any of my other sites (Gmail, Facebook, etc.). Using Firefox version 93.0 and Windows 8.1

Media keys are not working on Firefox though they're working just fine on Chrome. I can pause playing media in an active tab only with space. I'm unable to use the seek back, forward and pause buttons. It's kind of annoying that I have to open the background tab where the media is playing and pause it with space or my mouse when I could simply hit the pause button while working. I've tried disabling and re-enabling media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled in about:config but nothing happened :( Thanks.
