EVERY time Firefox does an update just about everything changes for me, including my homepage, my icons for add ons are gone, now my link to my email is gone, I always wonder if I'm on the correct version or not. It says I am but what happened to all of my settings. I cannot tell you the number of times I've had to find my THEME and since there is no rhyme or reason as to how the themes are categorized it takes me forever to find the one I want. It doesn't seem to matter what settings I have entered because they are changed along with everything else. I have asked this question before and the answers I have received do not work. And another question. I do not like the background in "black" with the titles highlighted in yellow when I am searching. Very difficult for me to read, I've attempted to change that many times but can't seem to figure that out either. Oh, Lord where is Microsoft 7 when I need it? An OS that even I could figure out.

Perhaps finding the glitch in the changes that always take place after an update should be your next update.

"delete cookies and site data when firefox is closed" now gets checked against my will. i'm not checking it and have never had it set to do that. this is wasting tons of time for me, resetting my shortcuts and signing in to sites that are a pain in the ass to sign in to (specifically bandcamp). other settings get changed also, but not all of them, and my personal info remains. but a lot of time is also wasted correcting all the settings that have changed behind my back. this started happening within the past week. i've changed nothing.

it's not when i turn my computer off. i had to reset everything 2 days ago, but when i got home yesterday and turned my computer on it was working properly - settings intact. i used it for several hours, went to bed, turning the internet off, as i always do, and leaving pine player on. (it's not pine player causing the problem. i wasn't using it the other times) the computer never went into sleep mode, as per my settings... but after turning the internet back on this morning and opening firefox my settings are changed again.

any ideas? Thanks if you try to help

Hello I want to use my extensions but I cant access them. Usually they appear at the bar at the top of the browser, but as of recently I can't use my Add-ons. If you look at the image I shared you will see where the Add-ons should be. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Please don't keep your users in this hack limbo. Users want tabs on bottom (tabs under address bar). This feature is essential to a community of users that utilize browsing during their jobs. Its a quicker reference for those who must switch back and forth between pages at a quicker rate. This Firefox/modzilla movement to disable these types of add on(s) is why more and more people are switching to Chrome for their customization needs. Which is more support robust and community supported. This is my last attempt before I switch over to a new browser myself. I just cant keep writing code every update you make.

i have firefox 99.0.1 64 bit in a linux system. i see fail in play of sounds. videos plays well, youtube, soundcloud and others play well, the thing is the play of sound only, in for example dictionary sites

for example in wiktionary in the page Europe sometimes audio plays well the first time, but it sticks at the beginning of play in replay. if i play it in loop in this page https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/46/En-us-Europe.ogg it plays well but again in playing it one time it sticks

in the page english (see the small letter) of the same site as it is not changed to the new control bar i go to menu > players where i have the html5 and javascript options, failing the former and doing well the latter, so you may think the fail is in html5, but in this page http://atticgreek.org/pronunc/sigmaU.html inspecting the page i see that sound works by javascript and i have a similar fail as the first word nósos plays well but the second présbeis again plays only the beginning and sticks

To Whom It May Concern:

Hello. I am writing because I have used the blog/search, and the answers do not work. I am trying to ascertain how to:

I. Ensure Javascript is on. (The blog told me to type settings.config directly into the address bar.)

II. Type a web address in and go to it directly rather than having it always search via the preferred search engine (DuckDuckGo). It offers me every option in the Awesome Bar drop down menu (Facebook, Google, Wikipedia, etc.) except going directly to a website. I have already tried turning off the default, "Use the address bar for search and navigation," and switched to "Add searchbar in toolbar." Both still automatically search with DuckDuckGo and do not give any option to go directly to a website. This is incredibly frustrating! I don't want Awesome Bar; I just want an IP bar. What happened to plain old-fashioned Internet browsing, please?

Thank you for advising. I cannot contact Harvard IT about their website requiring Javascript until I ensure that Javascript is enabled.

Pax, Aaron

Hello, Firefox has been getting worse with the latest updates to the browser. There are several websites I've attempted to visit that I received an error message when using Firefox, but opened without a problem with another browser. I am also having issues when trying to open attachments someone has sent to me in Outlook. I can read the email, but cannot open the attachments to the email. Are there any indications Firefox has been having these problems? If yes, are there fixes in the works?

Thank you, Marc

Over the past few days, I've noticed that whenever I type something in either the Google search bar or the address bar, the search results never load. The page flashes for a second, then stops working. The Google search engine and Google products, e.g. trying to log into Gmail, are the only things affected by this glitch. However, I can access everything and obtain search results in a Private widow, but not by using the regular browser interface. I've been using Firefox for years, and I've never had this issue. I've cleared the cache and I've tried disabling add-ons. How do I fix this issue?

When I open Firefox I usually open several tabs simultaneously. Most open. but sometimes one site gives me a Secure connection failed error, but try again always works. It tends to be the same two or three websites, but often they open fine the first try. Its annoying, but I always can connect. What might be the cause?

I am still stumped as to why Firefox crashes, IF and that's a big IF, my session is restored, why my tabs are blank but the website names are still on the tabs. Click to reload sometimes works, while other times it doesn't. Google, Facebook, Twitter, WordPress websites I am logged into and others will not load anymore for at least an hour. The only way to access them is to open a private window. What is happening to this browser that causes these sites to not load anymore? Any clearing the browser history/cache doesn't bring these sites back. They will only come back an hour after the crash. I've also cleared my ISP cache too (ipconfig/flushdns).

My Lenova Think Pad has Windows 7 Prof (configured as XP) on it, and Firefox and Thunderbird. I use it mostly for email, to play simple computer games, such as solitaire and word search, and now and then to look up an address or website. I do not know anymore about computers. Everytime I got an update, something would change and I would have to go and find someone, and PAY them to tell me what happened, and fix it, and put it back the way it was. For a very long time now I have not downloaded any updates, and just press the dismiss, or not now button.

Why do you need to change things the whole time, when it is all running fine. I am now too scared to download anything in case it alters something from the way I am used to. I do not use facebook or twitter or any of those things people are always talking about. I just use it for email, to keep in touch with others, since I cannot hear on a phone.

I am a technologically challenged octogenarian, who did not have a chance to finnish school in the 50's. Will I eventually not be able to use my computer? Or will you keep it running?
