I have used Firefox since it was Netscape, with an ad blocker if one was available. With version 128 I am seeing many, many, many ads where I used to see almost none. I have blocked popups but that's not as much help as you'd hope. I cannot find anythng like AdBlock+ or U Block. Are these no longer available? No longer recommended? I can tell you that they are sure still needed. Thanks.

I have a problem when I read a specific webpage and firefox jumps to the end of the webpage. This happens with one specific webpage, a Swiss newspaper: call www.nzz.ch - Now, select one of the articles but in the following way: do a right-click on the title of the article and select "open in new tab". (This is important: it does not happen if you left click on the article and open it in the actual tab.) Now you have the article in a new tab, you begin reading it and slowly scroll down using the mouse wheel. But then, with the slightest scroll back (upwards), firefox will jump to the end of the web page. All you can do is go back (ctl+upward arrow) and look for the place where you have been. Once this has happened, firefox will no longer scroll to the end of the page, you can scroll up and down, and everything works fine. But if you close the tab and open this or another article again with right-click, open in new tab, you have the insane effect again. I have no idea how I could analyze this myself and am thankful for help.

If an URL already have many tags or longish tags I can no longer see suggested tags when starting to type tags. Image example illustrates. This URL already have the following tag list:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI

Old behavior was if started to type ", spi" it would list suggestions:

Spitfire Spitfire_MkIX Spitfire_MkV Spitfire_MkVI

Easy & clear to select from.

Now it lists all already existing tags before each suggestion:

1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkIX 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI,Spitfire_MkV 1942, Air_Ministry, boost, cruise, memorandum, MP, rpm, Spitfire, Spitfire_MkIX, Spitfire_MkV, Spitfire_MkVI, Spitfire_MkVI

Suggestions are scrolled right invisible outside the input box.

Who thought this was a good new feature? It adds nothing, I can already see existing tags, why would I want to see them repeated for each new suggested tag (while not actually seeing the suggested new tag)?

How can I turn this *!$&@! off and return to old behavior?

So only on my FIre Fox, a window would pop-up (a window that looked like it was via the operating system) that was asking me for my NordVPN Username and Password. When I would push the "cancel" button, it would just keep popping up over and over, not letting me do anything else. So I would have to switch to a different browser, whereby that would not happen. Is this something that happens with FireFox?

I uninstalled Firefox and only use another browser now, but it is not happening anymore.

I was the victim of a ransomware attack, I knew who did it, but the police did nothing. I suspect those same persons are still trying to keep tabs on me to see if I am still trying to take some kind of action against them. I don't want to sound paranoid, but these people, who are known to me, destroyed my legal practice, so it is worthy to be paranoid.

Anyone know anything about these types of things?

I have done every single thing including reinstalling Firefox. The Youtube videos will not buffer in my Firefox browser in ANY mode, safe, troubleshooting, etc. I got it to start after reinstalling then about a minute into the video it started buffering again. I can watch vids in ANY other browser, and am connected by ethernet to my router.

I switched from google/Duckduckgo to Firefox/Duckduckgo because google has no respect for anyone's privacy and their search results have become pretty much useless. Now, I'm getting the same crappy, irrelevant search results in Firefox w/Duckduckgo that I get in google. Has google, in their unquenchable greed and constant quest for power, managed to somehow corrupt Firefox and Duckduckgo so that they can't get intelligent, relevant answers, either?

I have had my laptop for years, and I have used firefox for years. Roughly, in the last 2-4 months, all the sudden, opening up new youtube webpages, tabs, videos, takes a while, 5-20sec to fully load a new page, and when I open a new youtube tab, my laptop fan starts spinning loudly, for ~20-30seconds. Once the page is loaded its fine again. Basically opening up a youtube page is slow, and its acting like its same as playing a modern video game on my computer which is ridiculous. I have edge installed, although I rarely use it, and it does not have this problem at all, its fast, and laptop fan does not spin.
