Want to volunteer - "Save the world" caught my eye - but y'all got the count wrong.. it's not hundreds of millions, I'm pretty sure it's over 7 billion now. I've been depressed for 95+% of my life from first memories, and suicidal since I figured that was an option - for about 3.5 decades. Then I started doing some things, and programing in AI again (started AI in about '86, started programming in about '78, got on the net in '91 - used to download slackware on 3.5" "floppies" but having open access to 50 PC's at once made it faster. Anyway, I got my own plan to save the world. ~7 billion or so. (nobody forced so those religious people that don't do technology probably will stay behind and farm) But I can't work 24/7, or even all waking hours. So maybe there's still some useful info in there to answer a q or 2.. have supported PC, Mac's, and Linux mostly home fun. As I say, I'll try re-login after reboot (this thing is SOO slow, it doesn't even come close to keeping up to my typing, nevermind if ya open a few windows. Wish me luck because if my idea works (and my brane does work kinda funny, but bottom line is benevolence.. you think China, N. Korea, or even Gogol have that?) on my half-shoe-string budget. I will save the world. I know 1 in a million, but that's mostly why I stopped being depressed and suicidal after these decades.. even a *tiny* chance to make this planet way way WAY better for anyone that wants... well, I had no ideas before.. now I got one.  ;) Oh... I.ve also been trying to switch over to that one signon thing for a few weeks.. on my 2 cells, tablet, this creaky laptop, my old computer (10 yrs, but CPU still retails for $500+) which died 3 or 4 wks ago, so .. it's been messy and the Nvidia Titan RTX I gitta got $3400(CDN) *sigh* thanks, sincerely - Andrew

Hi there,

we are running Firefox ESR 78.1.0 (64bit) on our company computers (Windows 10). When i try to open linkedin the startpage appears correctly but as far as i search for a person i only get a blank page. I tried safe mode already, disabled local security protection, no addons are installed, no blocker, disabled hardware acceleration etc. Problem still exists. I also tried to open a linkedin profile within firefox 79 on a mac, same issue here.

Any held is much appreciated.

Best, Patrick

After a reboot of windows 7 some of my PC looked different then after a system restore everything looked fine except Firefox was back to its default. Tried swapping back to a previous saved profile, also blank. Started trying to restore my settings off a synced profile on an unaffected computer BUT noticed in the general settings of the options folder at the very top it says 'Your Browser is being Managed by your organization' underlined as a link' witch leads to http://www.null.com/ (Calacom.com) I have been hacked & Hijacked HelpI want to manage my whole browser again

Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Firefox 78.1 ESR W7

Is there any way to get the menu bar to have a unified appearance? Solid background mixed with a transparent one is not very nice looking. It would look much better if the solid background were also transparent. Anyone have a .css or other solution?

I have AT&T internet just started 24 hours ago...i get this message from time to time???....and i am not sure why???


Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at support.mozilla.org.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

I have alot of open tabs on mobile phone and want to view - and then delete - each of the tabs on my desktop because it's massively slowing down my mobile. I am able to open on my desktop the synced tabs - although I can only open them either one-by-one, or the entire lot of 1,000 of them - but cannot seem to delete singular ones or a few tabs at a time when are no longer needed. Is there a way to delete a synced tab individually from a connected device that's NOT the device where the tab is currently open/ originally saved? Thanks!

Hi - I'm having an issue with Firefox, well its been ongoing for some weeks but just getting around to it..

My problem is that Firefow will not download files. I have tried the trouble shooting steps and its not a firewall issue because my other browsers will download - as a developer I have all the major browsers installed.

Also I changed the settings to have Firefox request the download folder for each downlod - but it doesn't. Anyway I am about to reinstall will post back then.

Maybe should have done that first.
