If you don't write an answer here publicly, on how to disable updates and stop all pop-ups and automatic downloads of said updates, i will come to your offices within 2 weeks and do something really bad.

Right now I'm giving you a choice. It's all in your hands what happens next. Will you write me an answer for all to see...or will you delete this. Live with the consequences.

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

I have used Firefox for my online banking for years. Just recently when I go to the bill payment section and click on the drop down list to pay and view a bill, I can pay the bill, but when I try to view the bill the view bill window comes up for a second and the a drop down of the bank's home page comes up. The view bill page used to be a PDF file and Adobe Reader is my default. I talked with the bank and they did not see it happen in my account. If I open the online banking in Microsoft Edge it does not occur.

On the Homepage or new Tab page, we can choose a search engine to search with.. but instead of searching through the search engine it auto moves your text to the URL box where it then takes what you search and links it with webpage history and as you quickly hit Enter to submit your search, you get some random webpage instead of that you search for from the URL auto-fill. AT LEAST add an option to the Home Settings to turn this manipulative setting OFF. I asked for help before about this and got a manual config edit that ONLY works for non-Private browser and doesn't remain through updates.

Ads and other annoyances that distract me from being able to browse the web in peace are a pet peeve of mine. Take for instance this example amazon prime promotion that loads in its own web page that cannot be blocked by normal means. I do not wish to use amazon prime and don't want to be asked every time I checkout in order to complete a purchase. To make matters worse, the options are deceptively colored much like how bloatware developers word their installation wizards. I want to be able to bypass this page entirely and get redirected to the "no thanks" option every time this page loads. Is this something that can be done so I can shop online without being nagged for unwanted services?

Consequent to recent Firefox upgrade 103 leading consequent distortion of UI - mostly rectified now- bookmarks disappeared during my early attempts to sort this out [via roll back]. Replaced bookmarks folder is left justified on screen - previously it was to the right. It can be copied and pasted but always jumps back to LHS. I haven't been able to drag n drop or otherwise move this tab elsewhere - internal organisation menu doesn't seem to deal with this subject. A small thing, but Why is it so?

For some reason only on this computer my passwords are not saving. i reset this computer recently since its been having some performance issues. i reinstall Firefox on this device (that ive been using for 4 years) and none of my passwords show up. if i check the Firefox app on my phone or oculus those still have my passwords on them. any idea why this is the only computer that does not work. Ive been using Firefox for awhile now and this has been a frustrating issue.

Why did you choose to waste desktop space with so much white space between Bookmarks? I use Firefox because the bookmarks can be arranged on the left pane and I can quickly access hundreds of frequently visited web sites without having to use the scroll bar.

I have been designing user interfaces for over 25 years and cannot understand the reason for this. It is not any easier to read and much less productive and more time consuming. To be as productive as I was with the older versions, I need twice as much vertical space. The Bookmark setup was the biggest advantage to Firefox and why we were using it.

I am also extremely disappointed that you did away with the colors for folders. The empty white outline makes it more difficult to read. If the Folders were colored and the white space was eliminated, we could fit twice as many bookmarks and with much improved readability.

It is not cool or fancy or trendy - it is much worse than the older interface.

I have recently set Outlook Mail to send desktop notifications when email is received. This works when the setting is on. However I have noticed twice in 3 days the setting has been turned off- but not by me! This is unacceptable. I would be grateful if you can advise me of anything I can do to ensure that when I change a setting/preference in FF that it stays changed until I select a different setting myself. In the case of email it is important as may miss something important. Thank you,

For the past 5 or 6 major versions of Firefox, in some websites, sometimes the fonts used are rendered too thin, making it difficult to read. It's inconsistent though, it affects some websites but others not, a website may be affected today but not tomorrow, hitting ctrl+f5 several times or closing and reopening the browser a couple times, sometimes fix it, sometimes not.

Looking at the font inspector, I couldn't find a specific font family that causes it, seems to be random too. Font settings are at the default. The source of the font file seems not to matter as well, it can be Google fonts, local fonts, the website server itself, even when developing locally... it's the same.

Now in Firefox 103 none of the "tricks" I mentioned before are capable of fixing the problem when it happens to a particular website. I've seen a lot of questions in this forum about the same problem but nothing helps.

In the attached screenshots you can see the difference between how it looks with and without the issue.

For approximately 8 months now, I have issues where - on occasion - Firefox will not open the attachment or finder window on my browser when prompted to by clicking the appropriate button on a website.

For instance, if I am in my gmail, and want to attach a file to an email, I will click the paperclip button. Normally, a tiny finder/browser window would open where I select the file and attach it. That will not occur. No window comes up for me to do that until I close Firefox completely and restart it.

Similarly, if I were on Facebook and wanted to upload a picture to my feed, I would click 'post' followed by 'add photo/video.' Normally at this time a window would pop up for me to select something from my computer, but nay, Firefox will not do so unless I completely shut down the program and restart it.

Once I restart it, either by closing all of my tabs and closing the program completely (using latest Mac OS), or 'force quitting' Firefox, the programs work find and selection windows appear.

That said, it's incredibly frustrating when you're working on something or have a bunch of tabs open for whatever reason.

I have made sure that my OS and Firefox are both up to date. It doesn't stop the problem. The only help files I've found suggest this is a recurring problem that bug fixes have been put out in the past, but can't find a permanent solution.

Please help!

We have a very old web application which requires JSESSION_ID to be stored in cookies for our login session. As part of our solution, we provide a HTML document in which we embed the URLs of our web application. This HTML document can be opened locally, but, it tries to contact our application for Login validation. As part of that it needs to access the JSESSION_ID.

Before Total Cookie Protection was made default, the application was working fine. But, after making it default, we are observing 2 behaviors which are breaking our application. Those 2 behaviors are: 1. When we click on a button to open the document, nothing happens. We checked the console logs and the network tab in the Browser developer tool, but we couldn't find anything. 2. Sometimes, browser is sending wrong JSESSSION_ID. Here also, we couldn't find anything in browser developer tool.

Once, we disable Total Cookie Protection both the above problems goes away. We checked Firefox's documentation : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Storage_Access_API) and we found that our application has un-partitioned storage to cookie jars.

We are looking for pointers on how to fix this problem. Thank you.

Every time I have to type in a multi line field I have to select my preferred spell check dictionary. Even after changing the selection in another tab in this current run of Firefox I have had to change the spell check dictionary in this tab again.

I have two spell check dictionaries loaded English (Australia) and English (United States). How do I get Firefox to only use English (Australia) and never to use English (United States) ever again?

I am using Linux 22.04 and the snap installed version of Firefox 103.0.2. My OS locale is set to en_AU.
