Long ago I installed Firefox and copied my profile into it. On a friends laptop. I use it from time to time. When I was giving it back I deleted the profile and thought Firefox would create a profile again. I was wrong. I searched and posted questions in the support forum but did not get an response in time. So I just uninstalled FF and installed chrome instead. Again I had to use the laptop. I did a full install and uninstall with Rinstaller software but no avail. I just copied my profile from my PC and it started working again.

Then I uninstalled it through R-unintaller and thought everything would be gone.

Today again I installed firefox again and guess what My old profile was still there!!! Why does it not go. This is a serious threat. I am lucky my friend did not install FF again. She gives the laptop to her staff to do data entry and they would have had access to all my passwords.

So first concerns. is when I uninstall why the hell is the profile saved?

2. Why is it so difficult to just get a new profile that is reset the old profile. Here is my other question which has gotten no replied https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090811

FF is now even worse than IE and for me its IE all over again. I was so used to IE that it took me months to shift to FF. Now its the same I am so hooked to FF that I just find it so hard to shift to Chrome even though my experience with FF is painful.


There are so many bugs. like this https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1085732 It works perfectly in Chrome and other browser. The fix for this break Youtube. Now I can't tag anyone in Youtube, But in other browser both youtube comments and Bootsnipp works perfectly.

Firefox is the only service/ap running when computer starts and ties up 50-60% of available, freezes my screen and I have to set there for 3-4 minutes at a time until it finishes whatever it is doing. I have made no changes that I know of that tell it to go get all these downloads. Problem seemed to get worse when I added a Facebook page. I have no idea what it is doing or who told it to do it. Thanks for you help.

I often search for PChsearch on my email to then use PCH search engine. Use AOL...I know guru's can't believe people use AOL. But I am an old bird of 78 and hate change. I do this almost daily (thinking by some miracle I might win a PCH drawing!!) Today when I did this the above statement appeared...a first! So didn't know how to solve so I used their search engine to go to FB...where I was planning to go anyway. Same thing happened...can anyone explain and tell me why this happened & how to solve?

Every Firefox update I have ever installed has rendered all of my favorite addons and extensions useless. 43 apparently requires every extension be signed by Mozilla. Adguard adblocker (best one I've found) will be in this unsigned category this time but this happens on every update and it's infuriating. The ability to control ads and pop-ups is what drew me to Firefox in the first place. I actually damaged a tablet punching the screen trying to fight my way through a stack of pop-ups and re-directs every time I wanted to look at a different site. I could take the ads if they were displayed on a side or bottom bar. What the advertisers don't understand is this, I WILL NEVER SPEND A SINGLE CENT ON ANY CRAP PLACED IN BETWEEN ME AND WHAT I AM TRYING TO VIEW!!! NEVER!!! Even if I want it, I will never buy it. NEVER! I don't think I'm the the only person that feels like this. Mozilla, how about not releasing updates until they support all the reasons we were drawn to Firefox years ago. I would love having the latest security updates but I refuse to put up with crap. Stand up and take the lead. Don't listen to Google or any company that thinks they can hard sell us. If you do, you'll just lose us. No pop-ups, no re-directs, please. Thank you.
