I have a new Dell XPS 13 with the current version of Windows 10. I only use Firefox (83.0 64bit) for internet access. CCleaner (free version, 5.74.8198 64 bit) tells me that I have accumulated 5000 some trackers since my last cleaning 3 days ago. Is CCleaner wrong? Is Dell or Windows 10 adding trackers when I am not using my browser? I have not cleaned out the Dell bloatware because I have not had time to see whether some are useful.

I did not have this issue on my old Lenovo laptop. I would get trackers but not 5000 in 3 days.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I have been updating as changes are announced but have not visited one particular site for a month, so I do not know when this bug was introduced. Although clicking on PDFs on most sites "saves" the PDFs according to the application PDF settings, this one particular site opens the PDF file in your built-in viewer instead of saving the file.

I have both of the PDF Application settings set to "Save File" and set "pdfjs.disabled" = true. There are no issues with changing any settings and, other than this one site, Firefox is working just fine.

I know that there is a "Save" button on the viewer, but this just adds two extra steps for these PDF files that I want to save.

I inspected the element and it appears to be <a _ngcontent-hmk-c29="" class="edoc-linkIcon">Statements</a>

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I want my home button to take me to a page that I use most of the time but I want my startup page to be something more neutral like a search engine or about:blank. Or if there was a feature in Customize Firefox that let you add your own button that directed you to a web page that would be cool too!

I've used Firefox for Mac for decades without any problems.

When I upgraded the Mac OS to Big Sur a few weeks ago, my Mac started crashing frequently, several times a day, sometimes within seconds. After numerous trials, I discovered that the cause was Firefox. If I remove Firefox (along with all the profile information) and use Safari instead, the Mac never crashes. If I download a fresh copy of Firefox and start using it, the mac crashes within hours.

Does anybody know why the latest version of Firefox does not work on Big Sur? Is there a remedy coming? Safari is okay, but I really miss Firefox, and I would like to go back if the problem can be fixed. Thank you.

I often open several tabs from a website in new background tabs in quick succession. Up till a couple of months . ago there wasnt a problem, it may bog down the browser for a second or two but it would all load and display correctly given in time.

What since than had occured is that certain tabs opened that way will be stuck in the loading phase of the site. Usually it will display a blank tab that gets partially rendered when I move the tab in the tab bar. When I say partially rendered I mean it looks like the sites content is displayed but no css is applied.

Whats strange is the data gets to the browser but it gets stuck at some point. Now Im wondering how I can fix that or at least force the page to render without using my mouse to drag tabs around. Which doesnt necessarilly work 100% off the time.

I have Bing removed from my search engines and when I call up a new window Bing is not there, YAY. But if an app creates a window, even Thunderbird, the window has Bing as it default search engine and is back in the list of search options. This must be a default within Firefox itself or some data file where this comes from. How can I permanently remove Bing.

Addition information, if I lose all my open windows during a crash, last happened when I updated my bios it also reverts to Bing.

I'm running Firefox 83.0-2 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on a Dell Precision 7550 laptop, and many webpages have words that look like they are not decoded properly (images below). Everything looks fine when using Chrome. Can anyone think what the issue is?

For the attached Wikipedia page, the pattern looks like it's specific to italicized hyperlinks. I also see it in other places, e.g. any comments in a Python Juypter notebook.

Any advice would be great.

Hello, I use the add-on Simple Tab Groups and have been very happy with it so far! However, yesterday, I was moving some tabs from one group to another when I suddenly noticed that all my tab groups were empty! No idea when this happened as I had been working in one group for a while. The group I'd originally been working in was also empty after I'd closed it to check on others. Could this have happened due to the Firefox update on 25 November? AIs there any way I can recover my grouped tabs still? Thank you, Marieke
