Hi I am a longtime user of your browser. I have version 124.0.2(64 bit) installed on three devices. First thing I do on opening it is to click on "about", which normally updates the browser, before I do any browsing. In the last three weeks, however, it has not updated on any of the three devices, rather, it says "Failed to check for updates". I have tried the workarounds suggested at your Help center, and nothing has worked. What gives, may I ask? Thank you

The full website link has /users/login, but when I checked the saved passwords, the link stops before the first /, its just websitename.com, instead of wesbsitename.com/users/login, and I suspect the full link not being save is whats causing it not to show up. Is there any way to brute force it to show up?

Hey Gang -- Has anyone else experienced this?

Whenever I'm on NPR's website listening to a radio program, I can't access any other websites on separate tabs or windows. (they simply won't 'load' or even acknowledge any commands)

I find this to be very strange.

If anyone can help with this minor quandary I would be grateful.

Sincerely,

--Art

PS - I am using a PC desktop computer, running Windows 10 and using the latest Firefox version 124.0.2

I cannot remove "Your browser is being managed by your organisation" and seems to be stopping the home settings saving. They simply revert back to the default (see image) when I restart Firefox. Not sure what is meant by "your organisation" as I am a personal user, not organisation. I'm the single user of the browser (e.g. just one user on my PC, which is me) and also Admisitrator. Can someone help me remove this. Thanks John

HI, I'm trying to move the text to below the picture as in the screenshot of the popup (black back ground) on the non-popup pages because the mobile is not in popup, and the text is blocking the artwork as well. Is there a section to move the text outside of the picture? Thank you!

In windows 10, unrepeatably, firefox won't open google so I immediately open it in a new tab and it works. This happens randomly so I can't do any tests to find out if it is an extension or hardware acceleration that is the problem.

When I download PDFs on my MacBook using Firefox (currently 124.0.2 (64-bit)), they are always blank - I have attached a screen shot.

But if I download the same PDF using Safari, it opens straightaway - 2nd screen shot.

Is there something I need to adjust in Firefox to allow PDFs to open?

Lost my session. Not the first time, so I went to retrieve it with sessionstore.jsonlz4 Put it in the directory above the backups as usual. Not working. No matter where I put it, Firefox is not restoring my session. Tried everything I can think of, no joy. Would really like to recover my session. Has the location changed? Different file name? Firefox has done a lot of updates lately. I am on a pc operating WIndows 10.

[Lost my session because I had a private window open when I closed my regular window. FYI]

Whenever I get a link whether in an email from a verified sender or from using a site like Amazon, clicking on a link always results in "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." This has happened ever since loading the most recent version of Firefox (124.0.2) and it is very, very frustrating. What is causing this? Even in "safe" mode this occurs. Please rectify this situation. I do not want to have to change browsers after more than 20 years with Firefox.

please add a bar that shows how much is left until the end, e.g. like in Chrome it writes how much has been downloaded and estimates the time until the end of the file download and then neutralize the CPU usage when turning on the Firefox browser I really like your browser but it irritates me that it uses a lot of computer resources and there is no bar how much is left and how much has been downloaded and add a startup wallpaper on your mozilla shop website and in the task bar, it will be best to on version 124.1.6 Refresh and also to gain dominance over chrome add support for the poor homeless and needy and and start being aggressive in the market and overtaking edge and buying smaller browser organizations and and reduce resource consumption as much as possible, this way you will increase support for weaker computers and create your own AI support, e.g. Phoenix AI, Google does not have it, so you have an advantage and and reduce the resource consumption as much as possible, this way you will increase support for weaker computers and create your own AI support, e.g. Phoenix AI, Google does not have it, so you have an advantage and add your own offline game, e.g. a fox running away from the storm and let there be sun with trees and and add Firefox Rewards, e.g. a photo with Firefox and give a warning, e.g. low battery, users will thank you for everything, don't thank you because it also brings bad luck and remember forever i love firefox browser and during installation at the end of the firefox installation, thank you for installing our firefox browser!

For one site I go to there is an internal menu where I should be able to scroll down. In Firefox, there is no option on the right side for me to scroll down...but in Chrome I have no problem. The owner of the website said it should work in Firefox but it's not. I have attached images from the 2 browsers. I have attached 2 screenshots. For Chrome you can see to the right of the numbers under the Acct # column that I can scroll down. But in Firefox I don't have that option to scroll down to see entries at the bottom of the list.

Help! How can I fix this so I can scroll down in Firefox for this sub-menu item?

Thanks, Steve
