OS Win 10 latest upgrades. Firefox is always default; there is no other browser for me.. Stopped using Nightly and uninstalled. Reinstalled Fx, refreshed FX, tried Safe Mode. 3 month old Lenovo ideapad, 7th Gen i5, 16mb RAM, 1T Circulating Disk.
Much of the Windows crap is turned off, carefully after insuring it would not interfere w/Fx; I don't message, use their email or browser or games; never been to their store. Under Diagnostic Data in settings, I use the Basic choice.
I have tried everything I can think of. Noteworthy: In Windows settings, Fx is listed as default Browser, and shows as an installed program under apps. However, it does not appear as a program in others, like Notifications, Email & app accounts; and FX is NOT listed under any of the app permission categories, Like Camera, Microphone, etc.
Even with the fresh windows install, before any disabled features, no
Add Ons I use with Fx, which are not currently enabled: Containers, Easy Screenshot, Ghostly, and Video Download Helper.
In Fx. my bookmarks don't work; you click on the star and nothing happens. They worked a little last week, but I could not duplicate them working.))
Using Containers - They would NOT hold Cookies and preferences, 'separately by container' as they are supposed to.
I gotta be honest, I am in love with Firefox, and I detest most things MS. I realize MS makes things difficult for you guys at times. That said, I just want my browser to work, all the time, without a bunch of bother. I had Nightly, but that got old fast as I need the add-ons; I did not mind the daily updates
Last point, I think the password for Fx, which I use, should appear quicker in the boot. Sometimes I have forgotten to wait, and was already at a site when it popped up; this could present a vulnerability, I think.
Thanks for any assistance. Martin
