Why does Firefox keep telling me to update every time I log on, and several times while I'm logged on? These messages are very annoying and unnecessary! I don't need your updates! I don't want any update that removes the "back" button! I like using the "back" button. I allowed Firefox to update a while back, and it removed the "back" button, so I had to do a big system restore to get the back button returned! Please stop sending the update messages! Firefox works fine without the stupid updates. Allow the "Back" button to be used. NO MORE UPDATES! The update messages are so annoying, I'm about to quit using Firefox.

PUP.Optional.DefaultSearch is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a family of browser hijackers targeting Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Symptoms The browsers’ default search engine was changed to one that belonged to the threat-actors. I am german so probably I need your patience in helping me to clean my system resp. Mozilla.

I lost my Firefox profile data (amongst other files) after a hardware issue forced a repair and a factory reset. I purchased the EaseUS Data Recovery tool to try recover my Firefox data but am running into issues.

I located the two folders (one ending in ".default-release" and the other ending in ".default-release-1632317792925") from the PRE-reset file location C:\Users\[User]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles.

I then close Firefox, delete all of the folders from the same location in the POST-reset location of those same files, and paste the older folders in their place.

However, when I start Firefox, it only shows me POST-reset tabs. Am I doing something wrong?

Hello everyone!

Since the release of the new Firefox version 90 afterwards I have been using Firefox as I simply love surfing the internet with it as an alternative to chrome or chromium based browsers.

However, a small problem is annoying me: when I try to upload to iCloud.com or Google Drive, especially large ones, the upload speed is limited to 10 mbps, whereas I have an upload speed of 50 mbps.

On the other hand, when I try to upload on Chrome Browser or Edge Browser to both websites, the speed gets maxed out, literally maxed out by even 55 mbps!

I even tried to upload similar sized files simultaneously to Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Chrome and Edge finished while Firefox is still stuck on one third of the upload!

The strange thing though: when I open speedtest.net and measure the upload speed, it gives me on Firefox a speed of 50 mbps!

Any idea where the problem is? Any ideas how to speed up the upload and benefit from the max speed?

I am using latest Firefox on Windows 10.

Thank you!

I have a strange white bar that appears above the Firefox window at all times, but it's only visible on one of my other monitors, which is positioned above the monitor Firefox is on. I've tried starting firefox with all my extensions and themes disabled, and all that did was make the bar black instead of white.

This lead me to believe it was the Title bar. However, that's currently disabled. When I enable the title bar, the white bar disappears, but then I'm left with the title bar (which I do not want).

Is there a way I can have the Title bar disabled and not have this bar appear?

Worth noting I'm using the Lepton UI mod (which doesn't seem to be responsible for this) and DisplayFusion (which I thought would have been responsible for this, however I cannot be sure). Running Win 10.

Hiya,


I'm having a minor inconvenience with firefox 91.0.2 for a few months now. It's popped up a few months ago and hasn't resolved itself in between updates.

I'm guilty of having many (well over 20) tabs open at the same time and around the 20th or 30th tab even, usually one of the (newly opened) tabs, simply never loads. If I open the same link in another tab, the link (any url) does load. See the screencap below.

This is on a windows 64 bit machine OS build: 19043.1165 (21H1) Windows Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.3530.0

I'm running Norton 360 Antivirus software.

Will try running in safe mode, to see if it still happens and confirm in a reply to this message.

Hoping you guys might have some suggestions.

BTW: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1317506 is probably the same problem, unfortunately the thread has been archived. This one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285104 also seems similar.

In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Firefox used to have a setting to open 1, 3 or all previous session tabs, now that option is gone and defaults to open all tabs. The problem didn't affect me until I made a full Win 8.1 64-bit reinstall, I overwrote the entire previous profile with about 950 tabs; I made sure that profile specific files weren't overwritten, I checked internally with Total Commander looking for the specific profile name in all files of the old profile; anyway, the new firefox with the old profile quickly killed any operational capability of my PC, not even the mouse or the keyboard lights would work, until many minutes later, then slowly I could move the mouse to the upper right corner for the [ X ] to kill firefox. While trying to uninstall Firefox uninstaller offered to "refresh" so I did, and here I am

Is there something in about:config I can modify? I really need that option back, is a royal PIA as Firefox is working now, and a very very stupid idea to remove such important option.

Plugins, add-ons have nothing to do, Can anyone let Mozilla know about this, they killed the Feedback option on the Browser.

Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm unable to save my username and passwords. I read that it could be that I had upgraded to a new version of Firefox. Apparently, I had previously downloaded Firefox a while ago and just recently reinstalled it. I guess it remembered. I check marked all the password settings and it still won't save at all. It said that I should downgrade to a previous version 68. Then, it asked which browser and that's where I'm stuck.

Can someone please help?

Thank you!

Dear Firefox Community: I used to love Firefox. Now, I am constantly blocked from performing basic functions. Tonight I tried to complete a simple ebay transaction. I wasted more than one hour trying to make a purchase, with Firefox failing at every step. I opened Microsoft Edge and completed my purchase within literally seconds. Firefox now blocks me from several of my favorite websites. My fantasy sports and sports betting websites fail on Firefox but work fine on other browsers. The entire financial pop up window that is supposed to provide security does not work with my bank's website. I am trying to find a good reason to continue using Firefox, and I am not thinking of any. Again, I'm a longtime user and fan but right now the basics are not working with you, Firefox. Very frustrated.
