I can't get a email with the code for this new 11 windows pc. Driving me nuts. I was trying to see and look to see if they block some companies to send a email. Not sure y u need the code anyways. We all know windows lies and hates any company like this one. They give enough warnings to the b s. Please try a email me with a code to get around this trash from windows. I can't figure this out. Making me mad. I only use this browser for tons of years. This code thing was a bad idea.

I recently changed to a 4G network based router because of poor internet speeds in the area.

Since changing I have noticed that when using my TP-Link AC1900 network adapter, I can no longer access www.google.com specifically. I can still access the site on Edge (using the adapter) and when I change from the adapter to the primary wifi card in the laptop, Google works again in Firefox.

Due to the things I've tried (listed below) I've come to believe that it must be some strange interaction between the adapter, firefox, and the network.

I've tried the following: - Deleting all cookies and data - Reset all preferences in Firefox - Disabling and re-enabling addons - Fresh install of Windows (including Firefox) - Reinstalling TP-Link Drivers - Changing DNS to Googles servers - Firefox network settings (no-proxy etc...) - Checking the firewall settings on Windows (disabling, allowing firefox.exe, etc...) - Restarting the router - Changed some of the DNS settings in about:config, but resetting after to be sure

I've looked around for pretty much every similar post, some people saying the issue resolved itself, but any solutions I've found so far haven't worked. This is beginning to become a bit frustrating as I mainly use Google to search :( Hopefully someone who's had a smilar issue can help me resolve it, thanks!

I installed Firefox a few years ago. Microsoft still makes updates and I cannot delete it. Most recently two features have been added that I am trying t delete. 1. Tabs (for lack of a better word) appear on the left side of the screen. There are suggestions for other search terms. I don't need help. 2. As I read through a list of items found in my search one item will popup on the right side, sometimes preventing me from reading my list. I have tried to change my Block setting. I would like them removed.

Firefox AND Monitor:Questions on how to change Firefox account's primary email address to a previously/currently used one and how to read replies to that question already posted

Question 1. I see questions similar to mine, but how do I access replies? I click on them, but there is no link attached.

Question 2,  How do I use Firefox Monitor to change my Firefox account primary email address to an email that is already in use, by me, used for an older version of Firefox on a previous computer that is no longer in service? 

This is what I've done. In Monitor, I clicked on the link that says "Change Primary Email Address." It goes to a nice instruction page. I click Menu lines, go to Manage Account, I try to add the email as a secondary, so that I can then make it my primary. I click save. However, I get a pretty red error message that tells me "Account already exists." Of course it does. It's my account. I'm on a less than a year old PC, which came with Windows 11 already loaded. I'm on Firefox version 109.0.1, 64-bit. I've used Firefox on laptops for years. I'm very comfortable using regedit. Thanks. Lakshmi

Firefox 109 and earlier condenses multiple spaces in a filename into a single space on download

I am using Firefox and other browsers to attempt to download files containing multiple spaces in the filename, but only Firefox is condensing the multiple spaces down to a single space when downloading. I've seen this in another support request, dated June of 2021, but there was no resolution posted. Any help would be appreciated. I can see the app displaying the file correctly, and when moving the file among the different stops in the app, the spaces are replaced by the '+' char, so as to keep track of the spaces. However, as soon as it lands on the download option, it retains only a single space. Thanks in advance.

I recently got the latest version of windows 11 to go with the latest version of firefox. I play streaming movies on several apps with the sound working. all apps that use sound work, except for one. Firefox will pay the sound for a couple seconds and go silent. For now I am using chrome, which allows the sound to work on all of my streaming videos and movies (netflix, amazon, etc.). I would prefer to use firefox, but will unable to do so unless I can get the sound working again. I updated my sound card drivers and my video drivers. Thanks

Firefox Slow Loading - Disgraceful

I love Firefox but it has a market share of just around 7% and is even lower than Edge (which is terrible IMO). Chrome has the most users at around 65%.

Although Firefox is a much better browser, the perception for many is that Chrome is better due to much faster browser loading. I have Chrome and Firefox installed on Windows 11 with the same extensions and Chrome loads my home page in 2 sec whereas Firefox takes 7 sec to load. Even after deleting all cookies, cache and web history, Firefox still takes 7 sec to load my home page.

It's great to prioritize security, flexibility etc and I love these aspects of Firefox, but by not doing something to improve the awful loading times, you are leaving users with the impression that Firefox is inferior and LOSING the browser battle.

I'm a writer who relies heavily on instant access to Dictionary by Merriam-Webster. I recently got a new laptop and the dictionary will not load. It eventually will load but in a truncated looking format that is not useful. It works fine if I use Microsoft Explorer. I have cleared my cache but it still will not load and I have no trouble with anything else. This is super inconvenient. Is there some setting for Dictionary I'm missing?

Hello, I am in a dreadful situation.

I needed to format my PC, changing OS from Windows 10 to Windows 11. I have backed up my Mozilla profile just in case, along with other things.

Long story short - my backup failed. I thought that shouldn't be that much of a problem, as there's Firefox Sync. After getting the new OS, logging in to Firefox Accounts, syncing... nothing. It synced with the current state (so brand new browser) and didn't import anything. Bookmarks or history, which are very important to me. Currently, I have no way of retrieving them.

Is there a way to get Firefox Sync to Sync with what was saved some time ago? Literally anything before February 1st will work for me. I am very dependent on my browsers, Chrome synced perfectly fine, Firefox didn't.

I cannot find any relevant information on this topic, is there any chance of getting help here?
