Every couple of months I will start up my computer and find all my settings have changed and my Firefox add-ons are gone. I was not able to discern why but I made some changes in the configuration and got the text size back to what I wanted. This time it happened none of those configurations changed but I still had changed text size. I refreshed Firefox and found my add-ons immediately were reinstalled even though they were shown to be working when I checked my browser settings. One of the add-ons was Yahoo Mail ad blocker. I have used Yahoo Mail for years. Recently they have tried to make changes in my mail display to where I am being forced to go ad-free and upgrade to a mail subscription. After this most recent challenge to my computer setting, I am beginning to think Yahoo is disabling the Yahoo Ad Mail Blocker to get me to go to their subscription. Either that or Microsoft is challenging me to use their browser. It is like their is a war going on to win the internet. I miss the old Internet. Is there anything that can be done so my settings don't get hijacked?

Hello,

I recently purchased a monitor that I could hook up to my laptop when working from home, and yesterday after I connected the monitor I noticed that the scroll bar on the right side of the webpage was still there, but had gone completely black. If I click on it and drag my mouse, sometimes I randomly hit where the scroll bar is and it works, but I have no way of knowing where it is without guess and check. Also, the scroll bar does still show up on new tab pages and the firefox settings page. I was wondering if there's anyway I could either fix the problem or just stop displaying the scroll bar altogether?

Thanks

Yahoo Search has hijacked Googe

Google search returns yahoo results. I've searched your site for solutions and found and tried several. Specifically, the one below mentions checking your add-ons. When I click "add-on" or "extensions" it returns a blank page. It has never done that before. I cannot see any of my extensions and I've even tried about:addons and still a blank page. I have checked all my other settings and my default search engine is Google. I have ran Malwarebytes (pro version), and it didn't find anything. On a side note, this is not happening on Chrome. I love Firefox and do not want to go back to Chrome but may need to if I can't get it figured out. Any other suggestions as to why I wouldn't be able to see my add-on's/extensions. Thanks!


Search Hijack

In the extreme case, when you type your query in the address bar and the top line of the drop-down says "Search with Google" you may get results on a different site. Check your add-ons as described earlier in this thread.

Using Firefox 79.0 (64-it) and fedora 32 OS I've noticed there is not an option to minimize the browser window anymore. I use to be able to right-click on the menu-bar and one of the options would be to minimize the Firefox window. Only options now are radio buttons for Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Is this a bug are intentional can this functionality be restored? Regards.

Email: The screen that comes up to show you the messages that came. That comes up during any other thing I am doing on the computer. I do brain exercises which are timed. The menu comes up showing the new emails. It blocks the exercise I am doing plus it is very distracting. How can I shut this off.

I am having trouble installing a new programme. At the moment, I have a serial key to use and when I start the download I get a question asking if I want to save the file or cancel. I press save and the download immediately stops. I think that it is being blocked by Firefox and I need to know how to unblock. This file is very reputable and I have paid for it, I am running on a free trial for 30 days at the moment and the 30 days are running out. Help!!!!
