I already have signed up for Firefox Monitor. I therefore do not need it my tips and tricks alerts. There should be a check to not send people a tip or trick that they hae already enabled.

There should also be an option to disable that trick if you are not interested.

I want to be notified about new options and options I might consider because I might look at it later and so have not actively disabled.

The first one is a must though. I saw the tip. I enabled it. Stop fecking nagging me.

Cheers, Bode.

When opening a new tab, regardless of the website, Firefox refreshes the page by itself without any kind of input and it has become so troublesome that even filling information in or watching a music video is impossible, due to the browser resetting back to the beginning every few seconds

In the account section there used to be a disconnect button. This was very very useful. I used it every day. Now it has gone and signing out leaves my history, bookmarks and, I discovered yesterday PASSWORDS in the browser. PLEASE bring it back. Why reduce functionality?? I don't get it. The whole point of having a Firefox account is to be able to take all these things with me wherever I log in. An ESSENTIAL part of that is not leaving behind anything when I log out. Thanks

I hate the stupid thing. There are some pages that I go into and I've to them on my phone before but when I open them on my laptop I get the torn up page in the corner. The sites I've been to are good so why is some of the content blocked? Please tell me, if there is a way, how to remove this.

This is NOT my first comment on this issue. I just refreshed Firefox again today, doesn't resolve the issue: Firefox spawns tabs from sites I visit. No Rhyme nor reason... At one point today I counted 45 non-requested tabs created. After resetting FF I went back to Facebook almost immediately when I looked at the top bar I had SEVEN open Facebook tabs. only addin I use is 'noscript' I have been a FF user for years and if I can't resolve this issue I will give up FF.

I rely on browser titles as an visual anchor while switching between tabs to remember where I am. recently they've disappeared and I've tried

- hamburger menu > customize > toggling "show title" - tinkering with addons - tinkering with preferences - quitting and restarting - toggling addons

any ideas? page titles are one of the reasons I switched full time to Firefox and I'm frustrated! TIA

There are some sites I have to go into and this damn thing keeps coming up. What is the point of the Proceed Anyway option if it doesn't even work? And is there an email address for me to contact mozilla directly? I spent a whole hour just trying to find this page.

I have turned off "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", I am not using Firefox's password manager. Yet, the browser still remembers a username for sites. I've deleted them all, but after I log in, it reappears. How do I stop Firefox from remembering usernames completely?! This is really frustrating.

Hi, Can't even describe it well, but what's happening is that every time I access a search result from Google search or any other, once the Firefox screen appears, there is a "skip", from the edge of the bar on the to the final results on the screen. It's like there is a pause rendering or writing the screen--very annoying. Please advise.
