I've used Mozilla since it was Netscape 2. My six-year-old nephew draws better than your icon developers! Your interface sucks and there are no provisions to change it. Your browser interface is WORSE than Microsux interslut Explorer. You REMOVE functionality with every evolution and make it SLOWER. Not everyone can afford to buy a new computer every year to keep up with the bloatware you put out. Give me a way to change icons! I've known how to change the main icon. I want to make the thing at least LOOK decent, not like a bunch of scribbles!

Why does Mozilla schedule releases of Firefox (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar) while the current release if full of bugs that will be carried over to the new release? I have stayed with 52 simply because the higher the version, the more freedom that is removed because of security while the real problem is that the developers do not know how to write code.

Upon upgrading Firefox to v67.0.1 (Arch Linux Package), I get borders around all web pages I open. This does not happen on the "Firefox Home" page. The border is purple because I am in "Private Browsing Mode". I don't know what's causing this, I've looked around a bit, but have neither found a solution nor a post describing a similar problem. This does not happen when using Firefox v66.0.5. Till now, I've stayed on v66.0.5.

Thanks in advance.

Mozilla's latest policy change, forcing FF updates and the latest messages to update are the " last straw." I don't like my computer resources being high jacked to perform upgrades but prefer to do them manually each month or so. The latest message appearing in the upper right hand corner is very annoying. I've been using FF and it's predecessor Netscape for a long time but the upgrade issue is a significant problem. This web browser will be missed. Thank you for the run.

Okay, first off, I'm infuriated. I'm infuriated with the stupid obstacle course it took me to even GET here! From the chain of suggestive meaningless support threads to the baffling loading of Thunderbird to even get me a password reset because I forgot the password to yet the millionth damn account I had to make to do one simple thing! Thanks, Firefox, you're making me regret even bothering with you and I've been with you since Day 1! I've had problems with you about the performance of the browser, to now just clogging the internet with garbage like making accounts just to get support!

The main point that started my stress with Firefox, is how I couldn't clear Autofill. I don't want a laundry list of names that are outdated and not in use. I've done everything I thought of, like going to Privacy and Security settings and clearing out the data. I've had CCleaner, clean out the data thoroughly. I've rebooted Firefox a few times and the names are still there! I don't WANT them there!

What have you done?! Why do you feel the need to enforce an arbitrary necessity onto those who prefer to have the options available to them on whether or not to clear such data? Why do you feel the need to make this so trivial? Am I stuck with an autofill form that I can't clear?! Forcing me to have to see a long ass list of things that are outdated/not in use?

This is your idea of IMPROVEMENT? You've lost your touch, Mozilla!!

Was using Lubuntu for years on old hardware, then OS got corrupted. Chgd Distro to "AntiX" which worked for a few weeks, then FF quit loading Tags (blue dot just goes back & forth but no load). Bought a new computer meantime but would like to keep old stuff running and most of all clean out the anti-captialist propaganda garbage than landed in my FF synch account, including loops. An add-in that kills loops and moves all bookmarks to the bookmarks bar would be helpful. Presumably it was 'AntiX' that put the propaganda in my FF bookmarks, but bookmarks, if a directed graph, seems susceptible to loops and should have defenses against loops so once garbage like Anti-X's gets in, it can be cleaned out. Cryptically, my FF account asked me today to verify my home country (!) -- which I did (USA). Help appreciated, but if too much trouble would like Synch account destroyed so I can start a new one with same email. Also years and years and years ago I had an early Synch account with the same email address, so if it's calusing trouble, it can all be wiped out. Having to write this from some other browser on a new computer. Thanks!

I am livid!!!

I opened Firefox after work and, instead of having a nice evening, I'm having to reconstruct Firefox. Every time Firefox updates I have to go through this crap because it messes up my browser and I have to take my time getting it back to the way it should be. Missing pinned tabs. Missing links. Missing add ons. Missing search field. Missing download icon. Etc.

It is freaking ridiculous!!!

I have the add on One Tab with a ton of links. Every single link is gone. I need about 7 of those links right now and don't remember their origins to find them again. I saved them for a reason.

I followed the instructions that One Tab gives for getting links back but it doesn't work.

Everything was just fine until Firefox did this...again. My links were where they were supposed to be. This isn't the first time a Firefox update has lost links for me. I won't do it again. I'll go to Chrome because I can't take this anymore.

Can anyone tell me how to get my One Tab links back? Please tell me this is doable or I am going to just start crying.

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

On nbcsports.com domain, most pages have a comment section. There is no login to the website itself, but you can comment on the articles by signing in via several options- Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Facebook,.... etc. The site facilitates the sign in when you click "Post" or "Thump up, Thump down" by prompting to "sign in with.." and only shows the first 2 choices and a "show more" button, when you click "Show more", it is supposed to drop down the rest of the login choices, but it doesn't. In Firefox the whole applet just freezes. I tried all trouble shooting options, including complete uninstall and reinstall, safe mode, disabling firewall, and every Firefox t/s option I came across , but the issue persists. BTW, it works fine in Opera, Edge, and IE11.

I've been having this issue since the forced update to Quantum- The worst upgrade I've ever seen. I'm sure Mozilla people thinks it's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Well, you're wrong.

This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.

I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.

Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.

All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.

At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.

Thanks.

After the last couple of updates, Firefox now gets stuck when I try to watch a video withing an article on the nytimes.com web site; I just get a little arrow going around in an endless circle. In the past, videos would play o.k.

So in order to view a video, I must copy and paste the link into a Chrome browser, where the video plays immediately.

When I asked the NYTimes web support tech about it, he replied, "Certain browsers have issues supporting the NYT. We recommend using Google Chrome to view the NYT content if possible."

Why does Chrome play videos perfectly and Firefox not at all on this important site?

I have no problems with Firefox playing videos at other sites.

Here's an example page. No show with Firefox, o.k. with Chrome.

WTF. I'm having an issue with your software and trying to get to your support bulletin board and all it does is take me round and round through the same set of menus giving me a bunch of pre-written articles. Stop with this shit. I want to ask a question, not read your stupid articles that don't apply. This is your lazy attempt to avoid having to answer people. You mask it under the idea that these "articles" will discuss common issue and how to fix them, but all it really does is distract people to the point that they give up.


I am having a problem with my bookmarks. I am using Firefox 74. If I bookmark a page it used to add it to my Bookmarks drop down. Sometime ago it stopped working. Now it only shows Bookmarks under "Recent Bookmarks" and they drop off the menu after I think 10 bookmarks.

I can still find them when I show "all bookmarks" under the "show all bookmarks" option in the Bookmark drop down menu, but otherwise if I don't immediately drag them from "Recent bookmarks" to an existing Bookmark folder, then they drop off the menu entirely and can only be found when showing all bookmarks.

Is this a holdover from when you guys eliminated showing the file drop down menus by default?

Why isn't this working properly. When I bookmark a page it used to bring up a dialogue box asking me where I'd like to bookmark it. Bring this back.
