Firefox keeps resetting Bing SafeSearch back to Moderate. This change occurs with every single search and the problem has only begun since in the last week to 10 days (it is now 1/21/2022.) I have cleared all histories and cookies and even gone as far as to completely reset my computer. It happens on all my PC computers, Win 10 and Win 11. It happens with all combinations of my Firefox profiles and all of my MS accounts. It happens when I'm not signed into any Firefox profile or Bing account. It happens in normal mode as well as private mode. It happens only with Firefox. It does not happen with Edge or Chrome. This is very clearly a conflict between Firefox and Bing SafeSearch.

Can you display history as a 'webpage' instead of a sidebar? If not natively, then add-in?

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

It doesn't make sense. Maybe people want a new tab to open up to something besides a blank page or the Firefox home page. Other browser's give the user more freedom when it comes to this. I recently switched over to Firefox and would like to stay, but if this something that can't be fixed I might have to find a new browser again.

Firefox is using a pathetically low amount of bandwidth when loading websites

I've only started having this problem recently. After upgrading to an ethernet cable and getting much faster internet speeds (around 70mbps on the speed test), I've noticed that for whatever reason, Firefox is actually running slower than it did when I had worse internet connection through Wi-Fi signal. Websites can take minutes to fully load. When checking the task manager, it shows that Firefox's network speed is either 0.1mbps or 0mbps. This can be somewhat inconsistent, for example YouTube's homepage is able to load somewhat quickly, however videos can take a few refreshes. This is also sometimes a problem on a few other programs like Discord, but it's never been a problem on Edge (which is where I'm writing this). Is there any way to fix this?

Hi

I've recently installed version 73.01 of FF and have been trying to import all my Chrome data into it. The online instructions are using an old UI, and I cannot find "Import" under any bookmarks pop out menu or toolbar. I have tried searching setting for "Import" to no avail. Has import been removed with this version or am I looking in the wrong spot?

Thanks

I seem to have got myself into a real mess with this. Attempted some of the fixes without success. Decided that that a re-install might work. couldn't find firefox.exe in programs or apps but firefox helper is there, but refuses to uninstall. Attempted new download which was OK but installation failed. Are there any easy answers to this. Edge works ok and have checked for malware. I'm not very tech savvy. Any help would be appreciated
