Updated web browsing. Generally, tabs don't have a clearly defined visible outline. Bookmarks, too much space between rows, so e.g. less bookmarks are visible - have to scroll down to find. Make firefox easier to use, not harder. Need to have defined contrast on the page for each process or thing that you're doing e.g. buttons, lines, whatrever should have a clear contrast so you can see quickly. Time should be spent doing what it is you're doing, not spent trying to see firefox properly etc.

Hello all, Yesterday I tried to add another website to the rows of shortcuts. As usual I entered the Title, the website url and another url for the custom image location(optional)

However, this time after clicking the Preview button it does display an image, BUT after clicking the Save button it does not display the thumbnail image on the actual tile.

I tried it now with several different websites and NONE are displaying the images. I do have three rows of shortcut tiles with websites that DO display the thumbnail image but those are all from a few weeks back.

Why is this suddenly not working correctly any more??

I was trying to disable GMX email add-on which seems to be embedded permanently. I have found about every place on my desktop and on Firefox to no avail. Their page keeps coming up as the browser window. In the process, I have lost access to my Firefox browser window. I have followed all the instructions given (btw: Microsoft no longer has the "install any" notation shown on your sample App setting screen). Still no browser screen appearing even though the Firefox is on the preference list both on your site and MS app site. All the browswer files seem to be located under Setting: Applications: Firefox. So I have browser search ability right now without reloading Edge or ???. Your thoughts please. Carolyn Tompkins [email removed from public]

Hello,

I have a problem with opening 2 or 3 websites. I get an error message which is basically the same as if the page did not exist. It does exist though. I tried a different browser and there it works. I also created a new Firefox profile and I can access the sites without issues this way. So the problem must be with my original standard profile. Can you suggest me how to fix this? I already selected these specific websites and had Firefox forget about them in my browsing history, but sadly this does not solve the issue. They are still unavailable.

I don't mind losing pretty much everything attached to this profile in order to solve the issue and be able to open the sites again. Saved logins would be cool to keep, but I can sacrifice those too if there is no other option. The only exception is my browsing history. I do need that one and cant afford to lose it, which is why I do not simply switch over to a new profile. Of course if there is a way to export my entire history to another new profile, then I'd happily take this path too. Just no idea how. Thanks for reading! I hope all is clear, I am not an English native speaker.

I have Firefox 96.0.1 and Windows 11.

I've done everything I can think of and advice to fix problems in FF for Windows 10 to solve problems, especially tabs crashing. I've gone through the diagnostic steps and submitted crash reports. I can't do my day job this way. I didn't have the various problems, crashing tabs, difficulty getting to HTTP sites (I can't help how someone has their site set up) when I was back at release 83, as I recall. I want to find a copy of release 83 to install. What I want to know is, Will I miss crucial items if I do this? Thanks.

Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

Most of the others topics apply here.You override preferences and other serivices to install updates I don't want or need and more -- Firefox now wants ALL of your personal information, which iif you don't comply, creates conflicts with every other program. I just bought this lapper a year ago and already had to reinstall WIn 10 twice. I am one inch away from going with Google Chrome, which is just as bad but at least doesn't conflict with Windows, which is equally as invasive and worthless. I'm not a brain surgeon able to digest your "tools" in developer-ese. Help!

Hi: I hope I can explain my issue easily. When I am using Firefox 96.0.1 64 bit (Windows 10) and go to print a web page, the print screen pops up. The first thing on the right under "print" is a 'destination' drop-down menu for the various printers on my network. They appear in reverse alphabetical order. How can I configure the dropdown menu so that they appear in alphabetical order? Thanks so much.
