While I am browsing on a site I find that Yahoo will suddenly pop up without having been requested to do so. It also happens when I go from one page of a given site to another. This happens on most sites and I am about to "ditch" Firefox, since it does not occur when I use Safari.

Realize that Firefox has a lot of unpaid developers. But this Firefox 57 really has quite a few security flaws and easy-pathologies.

New pathologies discovered : None of the available ad blocker ADD-ONs work. All of them, even when enabled, allow more-or-less all ads.

This level of non QA could only be by design. It is hoped that Google/Instart/etc paid you a LOT of money for this Swiss Cheese of a browser.

It's FREE! But, thanks but no thanks.

Unable to add OneTab to the Toolbar

Hi,

I'm asking this question again as I may not have explained the problem correctly in my earlier question related to the same topic.

I have installed OneTab to my Firefox and it doesn’t show up in the toolbars. It is showing as 'Enabled' in the Extensions list and in 'Additional Tools and Features' it shows without an icon but with the title that says ‘Send tabs to ‘OneTab’. On hovering, this area seems to be active. However, unlike other icons there, I am unable to drag and drop this to the toolbar.

I have already tried the following:

1. Disabled all other extensions but Onetab and restarted Firefox. 2. Removed all other extensions but OneTab and and restarted Firefox. 3. Removed all extensions including OneTab and re-installed just OneTab after restarting Firefox. 4. I removed Firfox and re-installed it and re-installed just OneTab.

None of these steps helped me. Please advice on how to solve this.

Thanks

Suddenly this afternoon I get horrible video ads on my Firefox screen. I reloaded AdBlock and they're still there. Also and equally out of the blue, Ask has become my default search engine and remains so, no matter how many times I have selected Google and deleted Ask. I have been a loyal Firefox user for many years but I do not want ads and I do not want Ask!

I would like to know how to get back to my permanent tabs, or don't they exist anymore on this version? I had at least eight websites on permanent tabs, which made working much easier.

When I opened Firefox I received a "news message" that makes no sense to me. How can I revert Firefox to its former usefulness? There is something about the former installation of Firefox being undisturbed, but I cannot find that installation. Apparently this has something to do with sync-ing my desktop Firefox with other installations -- I've less than zero interest in sync-ing.

What happened to the bookmarks I had stored in the bookmark bar? How do I get those back?

I used to use Pocket back when it was a simple addon. I used it without ever registering, with syncing disabled.

I only do two things with it: (1) add something to my reading list, and (2) view my reading list and select something to read. I don't want syncing, I do want privacy.

Now that it comes with firefox, seems like there's no option to use it without registering. (Sounds like a regression to me). Or is there?
