When I go to recent bookmarks list in firefox and select one, firefox is vectored off to paydaydeals.com I have right click the bookmark and looked at the bookmark details and they look fine. I have check add-ons and extensions none are listed as installed. How is firefox being vectored off to this site? See screen shots. I have scanned with Malwarebytes latest version and Eset online scanner no bugs found.

How can I fix this?

thank you ashley

Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but when I try to take a document from one place and try to insert it into another document, hitting Crtl-A, Ctrl-C or -X to cut it from Doc 1 then hitting Ctrl-V and pasting it into Doc 2 wipes out the margin setting arrows so I can't change the margins to match Doc 2. And my attempts to get around that screw up the formatting of the document. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I recently moved from a Firefox fork that supports Classic Theme Restorer to one that doesn't. Sigh. It was however a relief to discover that I could make most of the same UI changes myself with a bit of effort. The only major customization remaining is a traditional "page loading" animation in the right corner of the address bar, preferably a swirly or moving dots animation and not the hourglass or ping-pong dots. How is this do-able with current builds? Thanks.

Hi. I want to sync with my work pc (it used to work just fine but when I synced to a newer third pc- successfully- it just stopped).

I can't even log onto sites with saved passwords anymore. Any help appreciated.

I AM SICK AND TIRED OF FIREFOX'S "HELP" PAGES CONSTANTLY REDIRECTING ME TO YET ANOTHER PAGE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE OR REASON FOR MOZILLA'S FAILURE TO PROVIDE ACTUAL CUSTOMER SUPPORT FROM AN EMPLOYEE.

THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR FORCING PEOPLE TO USE SOME KIND OF RIDICULOUS FORUM TO ASK QUESTIONS FROM OTHER USERS INSTEAD OF AN ACTUAL EMPLOYEE.

WHERE IS THE HELP AND CUSTOMER SUPPORT???? WHERE IS THE SUPPOSED FEEDBACK PAGE??? HOW DOES A PERSON ACTUALLY CONTACT FIREFOX???? WHAT'S THE PHONE NUMBER FOR MOZILLA OR FIREFOX??? THIS WEBSITE AND "CUSTOMER SUPPORT" NEEDS TO BE FIXED.

I am using DuckDuckGo with Firefox because I do not like auto suggestions filling up the search bar while I type. It's so annoying. I have ensured that Settings do not have auto complete in any way, but still they come. The only solution I can find on this website, which is Stop Auto Search in Firefox

There is a preference to change that back, but it does take a bit of work to find it because of the unusual name: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false Success?

I had no success with it at all. Please, how can I stop this wretched feature? Thanks.

When using Waterfox and I am trying to stream video content through my HDMI port to a Vizio TV, I encounter a variety of issues. 1) The audio content comes across but no video (black screen) (The most common issue) 2) I can sometimes get the connection to work by starting the stream then plugging in the HDMI connector rather than connecting with the stream paused. 3) Twice, I crashed Windows (Win7) by unplugging and plugging the HDMI cable in while trying to get the thing to work. That is not something I would want to risk again unless some possible bug is found and removed first. All extensions were disabled and I was updated to the latest Waterfox version. The sites I can't use are PBS Passport and The Smithsonian Channel for sure, but I never tried YouTube out of fear of creating another system crash. I tried moving to Waterfox because I liked the speed and many of the features, but I had used Slimjet (64 bit) for years and have never had this HDMI interface problem.

I am using Firefox 108.0.2(32bit) on a Windows 7 computer. Within the last three weeks two sites Menards.com & aarp.org have become blocked by security rules: Menards by Incapsula & AARP by Imperva. All other websites I currently visit work fine as did these before. I've cleared cache and cookies and "forget these websites" in history. This solves the problem for the first page on Menards.com but any link-click and the problem returns. This also cleared the AARP website but I cannot log in to my account there nor access some of the other clickable links. I can access these websites fine on other computers on this network using Firefox. This computer will access those two sites using the portable chrome browser but not the installed Tor browser. This computer will not access these sites using a VPN or with AVG disabled. I've toggled a few DNS and HTTP settings with no effects. For a year, the only thing I noticed different from this computers and the others is that this one continues to allow Java to be updated whereas the others are unable to download its update. Could that be the problem? Why these are the only two websites that seem to be affected is the baffling part. Menards has thanked me but has not gotten back and AARP wants me to reinstall my operating system. Thanks for any help you may suggest.

I have noticed for awhile now that when I load my Firefox homepage its keeps taking longer, certainly longer than it used to take. Also, when I load a You-tube video it takes about a minute for things to work properly. The video and audio are erratic and skipping and simply disjointed for about the first minute, but then after that period of time the You-tube video runs OK, both audio and video. Something seems to be causing those problems recently that I didn't have previously. The problem seems to just keep getting worse also. I would appreciate any input and suggestions that may help the problem. Thank you.

I had two Firefox windows open. One had 100+ tabs open, the other had around 5 open. Like a klutz I accidentally closed the window with the 100+ tabs open instead of the other window. Now when Firefox restarts it opens the version with the 5 tabs.  :-( I read about lost tabs in Firefox. I have found a file with the 100+ tabs in it. It is called: upgrade.jsonlz4-20221007134813. But what do I do next to restore Firefox to restart with the 100+ tabs version? Thanks.

I am under a disaster with todays mess of firefox, even on chrome now to try here to get some help. I am having to redo my pc OS etc and I am needing to swap over my app data to the temporary backup pc. I know how to do that but it won't even let me start firefox as it is an older version. I install a newer version and that is one of the new version disasters I hate. I have no time to figure out how to make it look to where it is usable. I got the old pc running and found the version it had. I install that, which is an esr but it still gives me the same problem. I need my firefox working so I can use it with my original tabs and bookmarks. Or you can be like some and tell me to just go elsewhere as a fix for the mess which is todays firefox. I used to have about zero of these kind of problems. How do I get myself to my original setup on the temp pc?
