I stopped using Firefox because of the level of BS Big-TEch involvement and lack of PRIVACY. I've been using BRAVE. But they are'nt much better. So I'll switch between as I feel fit. Just so you know. My recent irritation is Shortcuts. I like the speed and convenience of CHOOSING & USING my shortcuts.

I do NOT like the option of "sites you save or VISIT" That is NO option. I DO not want YOU choosing to save every site I VISIT and loading onto my screen. This is not a choice. Just because I visit a site WHY do you save it to shortcuts? It's a PITA deleting crap I don't want.

You should ONLY save the sites I CHOOSE to add.

Not rocket science. WHY DO YOU CHOOSE TO DO THIS?

The Internet It's becoming less and less about what I want to know (Trying to get relevant search replies is harder than ever) and more about what you want to know about me.

MALWARE ? When you are collecting more data than you know what to do with it is Oppressive.

I can see my current usage of Firefox being cut short again at the point of annoyance with this parasitic tech.

Oh and the proccess of creating an account and passwords blah blah just to ask a question that changes sweet FA...... No wonder there's anger. Idiots.

I am on a Windows 10 Pro PC 64 Bit OS with 16GB of memory, running Bit Defender Total Security. I have used Firefox for many years and have never had a problem The browser is version 128.0.2 (64-bit). A few days ago in the application menu told me there was an update and said to install it because it couldn't check for updates. I downloaded and installed it three times now, but the problem still persists. My Bit Defender also keeps popping up messages telling me "firefox.exe attempted to establish a connection relying on an unmatching security certificate to aus5.mozilla.org. We blocked the connection to keep your data safe since the used certificate was issued for a different web address than the targeted one." I have had over 2000 of those messages in the past few days.

I have never had an issue like this before. Is there a glitch in the most recent update? What can I do to fix it outside of resetting my browser, which logs me out of my google accounts and causes me to not be able to get back into them.

Hello: Q1- I moved Thunderbird from my C drive to my D drive but...C drive still contains active content Thunderbird uses. I'm not sure about when I backup my profile folder, all the data is really being backed up? eg. C:\Users\mdc\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default-release

      F:\Users\mdc\ProgramData\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default

I also changed all my Thunderbird registry entries to D drive. I don't understand why C drive is still active?

Q2- When I choose Import from a Thunderbird profile this comes up (see attached picture)? This directory does not exist! Where is it coming from?

Regards -mdc

I am using the latest version of firefox (128.0.2 (64-bit) on windows11. When I open more then one music source, short interruption is done on the music. For example when I am listening musing via youtube on one tab, I am opening another youtube tab. So when I started the sound from the second tab, the sound from the first tab is interrupted for a while (100-500ms). It is not related youtube, I examined that situation with radio streaming channels via start-stop music. The result is same. While playing music goes on from Mozilla browser, I opened music from also chrome without interruption. Also more tabs on chrome do not interrups the playing music from Mozilla (opening more sources or single sources from chrome is not interrupting) The interruption is occurs inside Firefox (between tabs). When I start/stop sound from any tab, shorthly interrupts the playing sounds from other tabs Regards, Murat

I am developing a website, frontend using react, redux, typescript. The same page that is taking let's say x seconds to load on Chrome, Edge etc., is taking 4x-5x to load on Firefox. How should I fix this, any help would be appreciated. From what I understand "Layout Reflow" is what is taking the most amount of time.

Hi everyone, I am using a ThinkPad with AMD Ryzen 7840u and the integrated radeon 780m gpu (Windows 11). Via a Lenovo docking I am connected to a screen with resolution 3440x1440.

Sometimes when using firefox, all browser windows suddenly go blank (white/black screen). It mostly appears when a video is playing (e.g. the website from framework laptop (https://frame.work/at/de/products/laptop13-diy-intel-ultra-1) causes the issue very reliable... In the screenshot attached this website was running on the right side of the screen.

I tried the different drivers, the official ones from Lenovo and the latest from AMD over several months now. The issue appears on both driver versions, sometimes more sometimes less. I also tried several troubleshooting methods like resetting firefox and so on...

When I do click into a blank browser window the window comes back to life. Sometimes I have to minimize and maximize all windows to make them viewable again.

Any ideas how to get rid of this behavior?
