This is going to sound bad so forgive me. I bought this computer and no one has any right to install anything I don't want!!! This is the fourth time in 2 months that Firefox has updated against my settings. I hope and pray someone can tell me how to stop this once and for all . I am a decorated veteran disabled and this is causing my ptsd to come back and I don't want to hurt anyone I've seen more killing than I ever want.If firefox updates and causes me all this time lost never to be gotten back again I am going to loose it. So please someone help me and I am writing a very nice letter to the CEO of firefox as soon as I find the address. I would like to get his computer and put all the things I want on it 4 time in 2 months and put my foot where he sits. Can anyone honestly think that this is right ? If you do send me your computer and let me make changes to it. I'm running windows 10 home and am always up to date except I'm running FF version 94.0 . If you want to know why it's because some genius decided that the latest version 97 doesn't need rt ck copy & paste and man I would like to see that guy with a flat tire on a long highway on a hot summer day so I could drive by and give him the one finger wave. I'm not going to apologize because firefox raped my computer again. I hate people doing things they have no right to do and I fought for everyone to have the right to free speech and thats a joke anymore. I rarely get this angry and most people will tell you I help anyone in need but I've had all this violation of privacy and owners right violation I intend to put up with.Last of all I'm terrible at all this tech stuff I have dyslexia and it takes me a lot more to learn the simple things. I hate to even ask for help but whoever helps me will be a true hero I can assure you of that and if any of you have any dirt on the CEO send it to me and I'll see to it that he stops allowing this. Thanks for listening to me blow off some steam and you know I haven't had a drink in 21 years but I'm tempted as hell right now. Thanks again and if you can't help me thanks anyway. I don't have the money to pay the geek squad I've had cancer 3 times and 2 surgeries in the last 7 years and guess who got my life savings. Blessings to you and all you love and pray for Canada and keep one eye open causer they more than likely are going to pull that crap here and I promise you about 90% of the ones claiming to be a patriot will crawl up inthe fetal position and cry for mommy the first bullet whizzes by there head I've seen soldiers fully trained do it. Have a great day you guys

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

This morning I turned on PC where FF is set as home page. There was a large pop up in middle of screen with some sort of new color change options for home page. I liked what I saw and was testing some designs, but I cannot get it back. I had hit the "use previous selection", I believe what it said, and it went back to my original screen. I thought it would go to the one I had chosen, a deep green background. At any rate, how can I get this option back to try again...?

Thanks

I used to have an APP that looked like a backward c to sign out. It gives you 3 different time lengths to use. Then it warns that all data will be lost. You press the key at the bottom and signs you out and then immediately right back in. This just disappeared.

Also where are all the apps that were grouped together I think they were under command? I could just click on one (like the printer) and drag it to my task bar. I can't find it either.

I installed Firefox to a new laptop and tried syncing my old laptop bookmarks and settings. It first synced with the Firefox app on my phone, then the old laptop. The problem is that only the bookmarks from the phone app are showing in the bookmarks menu of the new laptop. (Main Menu > Bookmarks) I found all the folders and bookmarks from the old laptop bookmarks menu when I clicked Manage bookmarks at the bottom of the new computer's bookmarks menu. (Main Menu > Bookmarks > Manage bookmarks) How do I get all my folders and bookmarks to show in the actual bookmarks menu instead of going through all these steps to get to them?

Use updated Firefox as default browser on my Win10 desktop. Problem started in about 2wks: I open my cdn bank website, sign in with pw, get my banking items page, click on visa, and browser freezes, doesn’t let me open any of banking items. Now top of this page comes tiny msge: "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page. Stop" Even the SignOut spot is frozen! I dont care about slower speed , I am only using that website for a couple of minutes. I have to turn off Firefox, everything else in PC works ok. I tried MS Edge and the same bank website works perfectly (like before on Firefox)!!! I prefer Firefox security features, please help!!! If not, MS Edge is my default browser!!!
