I have both Firefox developer edition and the standard firefox on my system. Never had an issue with this in the past. Re-synced the developer edition. It wiped the entire current profile from the standard version with only making a backup for the developer which had nothing on it.

Brilliant work there. They are two different browsers not sharing the same space they shouldn't effect one another in that manor. If they do you should at least back both of their data up not just one. If the person who wrote this garbage worked for my company he would be fired instantly.

I'll also need to warn the rest of my friends in the development community of this. Guess I'm back to chrome. Can't risk this type of garbage.

When I accidently double click in the blue browzer bar, firefox puts every single open window away. How do I stop this

I occasionally double click to drag an open window to a new location. When I double click in the top bar of the firefox browser, any open windows are put away, not closed...which destroys the link, but put away like clicking on the minus sign in the upper right blue bar that is next to the "fill page" icon and the red X that destroys the link. This may be a property of MS8.1 POS or it might be Firefox. I am sick and tired of having to open all these windows one by one each time my finger "stutters" producing a rapid double click. I have tried changing single click and double click response delays, but that does not help either. The morons that wrote MS8.1 load the keystrokes instantly without checking timing. Also, does anyone know of an operating system that emulates the MS NT system without all the F------ "features" that pervade later OSes??? Many Thanks for your suggestions!!!

I want to thank you for your support of the little guy for all of this time. I used Firefox exclusively right up til the minute I found I have to upgrade my OS in order to use your browsers. I am running an older mac because that is all I can afford. It will not upgrade to any of your products, so unless you would like to purchase a brand new iMac for to use in my dog sitting business, (my only means of income) this looks like the end of a long and lovely relationship.

Yahoo is showing up when I search. I've wasted lots of time selecting Google as my default browser.

Before this annoyance I was very happy with Firefox, now I'm going to see if I'm happy using Chrome.

Looks like you took a page from Apple & U2, another unpleasant foisting of garbage.

I'm so disappointed. And sad to stop using Firefox.

Well?

It was there until I firefox was updated without my consent. I was not warned that this would happen when the update was performed. I found this out after the fact. Problem is I still want this function, especially the "open in sidebar" one as that is an actual function (as opposed to the description which merely elaborates a function)

My Firefox updated to 67.0.1. Now when I type something into my search bar it shows up as results in the address bar. I DO NOT WANT THIS. I used to be able to have typed my favorite websites into the address bar and basically saved them there so I could just drop down and go to a specific site. Now that is gone and all these search results are there. I WANT MY FIREFOX BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS. I don't understand why your company thinks this is a good thing. If there is no way to change this problem them I am going to remove Firefox from my computer and go with a different web browser.

NOTE: This forum is quite bogus as it doesn't allow me to register just to reply to existing threads. So now you get yet another question for this topic that you're dodging all time, mozilla. Why are you behaving LAME like the rest of the internet? Now the actual issue. I am using Firefox 52 ESR due to the horrible npapi plugin for java. I am completely aware of all the security issues and so are my users. We are waiting for the developers to use something else than java. I run a Linux environment and I cannot run either Explorer or Safari. Recently Firefox ESR 52 started updating for no reason, even with updater disabled.

I resolved by removing the updater binary and the updater.ini files in the Firefox ESR distribution. At least it seems it's not doing it automatically anymore. We will see how it works, since developers are behaving like apple developers in this forum, instead of disclosing technology they hide it. That S U C K S! Regards, bjaast (Florido Paganelli)

So, I am just curious why the support for full themes was removed? Those themes were actually useful, they made the buttons better sometimes, they made the browser easier to look at without the bright white background that will eventually make someone go blind. Sometimes they added cool functionality, in general they were a heck of a lot more useful than whatever it is you are pushing currently, and they looked 10,000 times better than anything you are pushing currently.

Stop the nagware. You are not my parent or my manager!

I have reasons for upgrading when and the way I do. Getting nagware several times a day is ludicrous. Getting it everyday is ludicrous.

The stated reason for removing the "don't update" option, which was used by most to remove the nagware, was to 'help' orphans or some such nonsense. If that was real you'd do it once a month maybe to make people aware. That is NOT what you are doing.

Your percentage of the market is deprecating because of nonsense like this. Also breaking all the wonderful extensions we used for years and years. You seem to have a habit of doing what you want, not what your user base wants. Have any of you ever worked for a commercial product? One that was successful?

I have been searching since the start of quantum for solution to two problems. 1, i don't like tabs. There is a damned function for this built into my OS. Thanks but i'll pass. 2, My machine, I choose when I update stuff, NOT you. Can't disable updates, can't get around the nagging door hanger. Firefox is just not fun or easy anymore. You've clearly decided that we don't deserve choice, and choice is LITERALLY the only reason anyone would go to a browser than can barely stay in the top 3. Why is it so important to mozilla for these things to persist?

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!
