Last FireFox install - Mozilla abuses Firefox users just like IE or Chrome, so I'm dumping Firefox

The latest outrage ? Firefox is taking up space at the top of my browser with the following : "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. Manage bookmarks..."

I have no #$#$#$@ bookmarks !!! Spent over 30 minutes trying to find out how to turn off this crap. Apparently it can't be done. I'm stuck with the irritating garbage, unless I dump Firefox. Solution found ! Screw Mozilla and Firefox. They've become no better than IE or Chrome. Both of which abuse their users by forcing them to waste time undoing forced "improvements".

Hi Firefox In one of the updates I lost all my saved passwords. I responded "no" to access the saved passwords in one of the updates, afraid of giving some external hackers access to them, not knowing that I would lose them all. Is there any way to get the lost passwords back? Is there any files on my hard disc where these are stored? I hope that you can help me.... With Regards

For some reason, somehow, the console language changed to Croatian. I use both Windows and Firefox exclusively in English, but I use Croatian keyboard layout. I've never set Croatian as anything, anywhere. Please help me because I'm going mad. I really don't want to switch to Chrome... This is a big problem for me since I never use Croatian on my PCs and am lost while trying to debug my web apps.

I check about:config and both pocket setting are set to true. I disabled it and enables it a few times and still issue persists.

I cannot access my Mewe page. First I lost the ability to post emojis and my profile picture was obscured/blurred. I tried refreshing the page, logging out then logging in again but to no avail. Next I tried deleting the cookies and cache and restarting my PC still did not work. Then for the last 4 days I cant even access the sight. I hit my bookmarks/favorites icon and it just blinks so I Google the MeWe login page and try direct access, it just blinks. Very frustrating !!!. I switch my browser from Firefox to Google Chrome and I get access to the sight. The problem is obviously with Firefox as ALL these problems began AFTER the last Firefox update. Note: My computer outside of my MeWe access is working flawlessly and fast. I did a complex virus scan with my AVAST antivirus system it revealed NO viruses, NO malware, NO Trojan Horses and a clean PC. I've spoken to friends with Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge as well as smart phones and they ALL have access to their MeWe accounts. HELP !!! I don't want to switch my browser from Firefox because it screws up all my logins, bookmarks etc. but I want access to my MeWe account. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been with Firefox since my first PC 15 years ago and I don't want to switch .... Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi there, When accessing history for today, selecting everything with CTRL+A then copying the selection with CTRL+C the only data copied to the clipboard is the URL [Location]. I have Name, Location & Most Recent Visit selected on the header ribbon. I am not using any clipboard utilities so I imagine it's pure Firefox inspiration. Is there a special trick for making Firefox recognise the PC standard CTRL+A and/or CTRL+C? Thanks

I use Firefox on iOS and I have correctly set it as my default browser. What is annoying, however, is the fact that when I select a text and I click on "Search on the web", iOS opens Safari and not Firefox. Why does this happen? I want to open Firefox when I click on that button.

Thanks for you reply.

When selecting "show all bookmarks", recent bookmarks cannot be located or manipulated. Why would "recent bookmarks" be hidden and inaccessible to me and not show up on the manage bookmarks/show all bookmarks screens? I would prefer to be able to move my recent bookmarks to various folders, and not only 1 at a time. Thanks for any help.

Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

I notice that Firefox will download and install updates in the background, and then wait silently for me to restart firefox to get the updates applied.

Can I either: 1) Make it so Firefox automatically forcefully restarts once the patch is applied 2) Make it so Firefox pops up something that offers the user to restart to apply the update.

I would prefer to apply this through policy, or a registry edit if possible.

Thank you

Hi,

I have a problem with random "color blocks" appearing on the screen when using the Windows browser. They never happen with any other program on the computer so it is only an issue with the browser. These color blocks usually disappear when I roll the mouse arrow over the discolored block or reload the page. I have attached an image with an example, you can see the discolored black block when it is supposed to be all grey. I have tried both refreshing and reinstalling the software. The software has worked on this computer before. Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards, Magnus

Hello,

I am running into something very frustrating and am incredibly annoyed by it. Yesterday, I was browsing and had bookmarked some sites prior to me doing a Firefox update. After the update I had restarted my computer. Fast forward to today and I come to find out that NOTHING from the SEVEN (yes SEVEN!) hours leading up to the update had saved at all in Firefox. No history and no bookmarks from that time period. Oddly enough, my last bookmark shows eight whole days ago so not sure as to the extent of the damage. I have attached some pics showing the huge gap of missing data. It absolutely perplexes me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Good day,

I have noticed that my Bookmark in the Bookmarks Toolbar sometimes requires 2 clicks to load Reddit.com. This is the only Toolbar Bookmark to exhibit this behavior. Every other bookmark I have loads the page after a single click of the icon on the Bookmark Toolbar. It appears the browser makes no effort to reach the Reddit site (could be an issue with Reddit.com, but it really appears FireFox just does nothing after the first click).

I first noticed this several months ago (maybe as long as a year ago), but assumed I was just missing the button. I have since ensured I carefully single click directly on the icon, no dragging, yet it still sometimes does not load Reddit after the first click. Very often it requires 2 clicks, as the first was totally non-responsive.

I have many Bookmarks on the Bookmark Toolbar that I use regularly. Reddit is the only one that exhibits this behavior.

How can I correct this behavior?

Thanks for your time, John
