I keep getting rerouted to a malicious McAfee Antivirus software page stating my computer has 5 viruses and my Mcafee subscription has expired, etc. I don't have that software & NEVER plan to use it. How do I block the URL from loading? This should be SIMPLE in the Mozilla settings, can't find anything regarding web filters or page blocking.

(This has happened more than once!) When Windows did a 'forced' software upgrade on my desktop PC, 3 days ago, my g-mail/email link will not load, therefore I am unable to access my emails. If I close Firefox and open the Chrome browser, I get access to my g-mail. I have tried clearing cache and cookies but my g-mail still will not open using Firefox. Do I have to ditch my Firefox and start using Chrome as my default browser just so I can get my email? Do you have any suggestions? FYI, I am not a 'computer tech'. I am retired. Hopefully your suggestion/recommendation will not be too complex for the typical/basic PC user.

I just downloaded the latest Firefox browser, and it asked me to import all of the my bookmarks, but it only grabbed the ones from Chrome. All of my former bookmarks that were saved in the previous Firefox browser are gone! Most of my useful bookmarks were in Firefox. Where are they, and how do I get them back?

Why is it that after the latest update, Pocket returns every time I boot the browser, across all of my devices? This cannot be a coincidence. I am literally having to disable it every time. Mozilla, if you are smart, you will choose not to go in the direction of Google. You already don't have much of a user base and you don't want to lose what you do have left. This is disappointing and you've pretty much guaranteed I'm not using Firefox anymore.

Please provide a native way to change the behaviour of Ctrl-W. I tend to switch between aZerty and qWerty keyboard layouts, as a result I sometimes hit ctrl-W when I would like to ctrl-Z some change. As a result I tend to lose some work when the tab I'm working in closes. It would be nice to be able to rebind some of the default key combinations, or at least disable them.

I found a method description that edits the omni.ja file, but also that this method is unsupported. Moreover, running ubuntu kind of rules this out as an option, as canonical has ruled that firefox is to be installed via snap, in a read-only data store.

I have checked setting, to which I switched around to try and troubleshoot. This did not work. I ended up downloading another browser and the file downloaded no issue. Why is this happening? Ant help is greatly appreciated!

Firefox has an issue with the scroll bar on certain websites which makes it befin flashing and creeping towards the top of the page on some websites (See attached gif). This is particularly an issue on whilst logged into my university study portal.

I have already troubleshooted this by: - Disabling add-on's - Deactivating smooth scrolling - Deactivating auto-scrolling - Deactivating enhanced tracking protection. Nothing has resolved the issue.

Hello,

Recently I realized that the vast majority of my passwords were no longer present in the Firefox password manager. When looking at my profile's logins.json file, they are all present, yet only the last two are visible in the password manager itself. I've tried refreshing Firefox, restarting my PC, and creating a new profile and copying over both the logins.json and key4 files to it, yet the issue remains. Is there a way to decrypt the logins.json file using both it and the key4 file so that I could import into Firefox as a CSV? Thanks in advance.

I turned off my Mac Mini 2 last night, February 7, and when I turned it on this morning, all my Firefox bookmarks were gone.

Everything else is fine (Chrome bookmarks, which are different from those in Firefox, remain intact). And yes, I should have known better, but since when a Firefox update deletes all bookmarks?

I'm guessing that is the reason, because everything else is intact.

Any suggestions as to whether there is ANY way to recover them?

Thanks!

When i attempt to open any file ending in .md - even an empty file - the browser opens a new tab repeatedly, failing to ever render the file.

Ubuntu 20.04 Firefox 122.0.1

Settings > General > Applications: Content Type = Markdown Document Action = Open in Firefox

Extensions and Themes > Extensions None

As a workaround, I set Action = Save File for Content Type = Markdown Document. This allows me to stop the loop, but it never renders the document.
