EVERY time Firefox does an update, my home page changes, my icons for add-ons are gone, EVERY time. I keep asking this question but the responses are not helpful.

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.

I've installed lots of add-ons thru out the years and when I'm not using them, or just didn't like them, I just go to the "Add-ons" settings and press on "disable" thinking that's the end of the story. But I've become more privacy and security concerned as time passes and now I'm wondering if I should delete all the add-ons that I no longer have any use for, (and some useful ones but are very sketchy).

What I mean is that some add-ons "require" permission to everything you do in your web browser "to work properly" and well that's beyond sketchy. I recently used an old add-on and realized it worked perfectly even after over 2 years of it being disable, I mean even after multiple firefox updates. I realized that the add-on had "automatic updates" turned on so... even disabled it was updating in the background... therefore it was somewhat active.

Now I'm wondering if all of this sketchy add-ons that I've installed thru out the years that need all kinds of weird "permissions" like access to well... -everything- (passwords, history, credit cards, etc...) have been collecting all this data even after I disable them years ago?

Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint 99.0.1 (64 bit) - mint-001


Using Outlook web, when viewing pdf documents, it displays strange symbols (incorrect font sets are probably used).

I point out that using Chrome the problem does not arise.

I also installed the microsoft fonts thinking it might solve the problem I attach illustrative image.

Best Regards. Salvatore

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.

Firefox is my browser of choice. For the most part, it works great. In fact, the only issue I've ever had with it is one website in particular not loading. Unfortunately, that website is the site that I use to check my schedule for work, so it not working is kind of a big deal to me. On occasion, it simply will not load. Frankly, that is not a big deal. I can always check back later, when it might work. However, on Firefox, even when the site does load, certain elements do not load. For example, there is a built in tool that includes company updates, scheduling info, et cetera. While it consistently loads perfectly in Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, it appears only as a white box in Firefox that occupies the same space but cannot be interacted with. I have tried easing up privacy settings for that website to no avail. I looked to see if there was a javascript option I could toggle, but I could not find it and I am not sure that is the issue anyway. The site is feed.kroger.com, although the authentication page occupies a different URL. Other Kroger family websites have worked without trouble; this is the only one that acts buggy.

I set an older website to forward to my new website. This worked and then stopped working. Both sites are GoDaddy hosted. GoDaddy teach person was did not have the forwarding problem. Private window in Firefox didn't help. Clearing cash, etc. didn't help. Edge worked with problems. Safari on my phone worked without problems. My Firefox is all up to date.

GoDaddy googled this problem and said a solution might require a change of Firefox "rules," but I have no idea what that might mean.

Any help is appreciated. Firefox is my browser always.

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

When I have resistFingerprinting set to true, closed captions on certain sites where the feature is active (I think it specifically happens with HTML5 canvas image data, but I could be wrong), change colour. Is this intended? If so, is this configurable? It's quite annoying and makes for less readable text most of the time when trying to watch content. This specifically happened on Wakanim.tv for me. Once I turned off resistFingerprinting, it went away again. Some example are in the attachments.
