I use the Dragon NaturallySpeaking add-on to navigate Firefox (and my entire computer) by voice. Recently the extension stopped working properly, and when I tried to uninstall and re-install the plug-in, it would not work at all.

This is the installation link Nuance provides: https://dnsriacontent.nuance.com/15/setup/ffinstall.html.

When you try to click the "Install" button, nothing happens. This has caused Dragon to stop working with almost the entirety of Firefox. Please advise on if an update is coming.

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?

I want to be able to control when firefox updates are done. many times, i try to sign on for a quick task. The firefox updates immediately kick-in and cannot be stopped. this prevents me from accomplishing my intended task in a timely manner. I want to do the updates on MY schedule, not Firefox's.

Since changing to a new monitor and running at 1440p, the menus and url bar are in tiny mouse print. The searching I've done so far seems to point to an update removing user control to change the font size on those items. I've adjusted settings and the pages are fine, but the two things I mentioned are almost unreadable. How can I increase the font size there?

I have always set my browser to open to previous tabs, but about one month ago it only opens to a new tab, even though the boxes are still checked to previous tabs in settings. I have no idea how to fix this-tried reboots, closing, toggling setting on/off, reopening browser, etc., to no avail.

Even more concerning, possibly, is that under Settings, General when trying to fix this issue I noticed at the top of the General Tab: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." I suspect this could be malicious, as I am unemployed and have NEVER used this laptop (Dell Inspirion 3793, Windows 10, 64 bit) with any organization or previous job.

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts regarding both issues and hope that the latter is not a threat that I need to deal with immediately.


Thank you,

Brent G.

I have looked around for a download concerning "ad remover" similar to Norton and supposed Firefox had a free or cheaper one already? For example when following education videos on YouTube (w/o being a premium visitor) it's a blessing not to be interrupted constantly. I tested Norton, works fine but it's quite expensive.

I have searched for above at Mozilla, but get articles "ad blocker" and how to prevent users URL addresses from being saved when visiting a site and these are not the same if understanding right?

Please advice link to an "ad remover" at Firefox when visiting other websites because it saves hours every week. If Firefox don't have one, my proposal is that Firefox develops one, either for free or for a limited amount of monthly cost (say $0.5-1/month?). I'm pretty sure it would be a success.

Sorry if I've asked for something that already exists, in that case please advise where I can find it. I'd be glad to download and take advantage of it.

/Regards Peter S

When I go to a web page the browser opens the page and then automatically goes to the bottom of the page. I have to scroll to the top of the page. Every time I click within the page and return to the main page, it goes back to the bottom of the page. Is there a way to prevent this? It gets to be very annoying and when I am on a site where I will be moving around a lot, I change to another browser. None of the other browsers do this. It doesn't do this on every page, but more than 50%. Thank you.

I have no problem with Firefox automatic updating, but I have a problem with the irritating popup coming every time after every update. Why do you nag your users like this? And why is there no "don't show this anymore" checkbox? Why is there no close button and you need to click trough the 5 steps every time??? Is there any way to disable this irritating popup in about:config ?

I installed my first Firefox years ago to get rid of popups and now Mozilla is slipping them in our face. Not nice.
