I want to disable checking for updates, but the setting to do so has been removed. After updating fairly recently, I noticed that the setting located in:

about:preferences#general

Was changed to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" WITHOUT my permission. As a result of this change, I get nagged while I am working ALL THE TIME. Like, several times a day. Not just when the browser first starts, but while I am working. I am getting sick of it! It's become spam at this point, drawing my eyes away from work. and if you think spamming people will make them do it, think again.

In Windows 10 I got so fed up with the automatic updates disrupting work that I outright destroyed my computer's ability to EVER get a system update. If the nuclear option is available for Firefox I am prepared to do so if only to make it shut up already.

So anyway, please tell me, how do I make it stop nagging me about updates? and while I am at it, how do I kill the notification system entirely? because I never want any type of notification ever disrupting me while I am working.

Obviously Mozilla understands this sentiment, since the default behavior now is to hide notifications as described here:

https://blog.mozilla.org/firefox/block-notification-requests/

So why be so in-your-face about updates?

NOTE: I am not against updates in general, but back in the 90's when software updates was optional I updated things far more often because I enjoyed having the ability to do research on an update before accepting it. This personal policy has resulted in me avoiding lots of bad updates that damaged other people's computers, but software that updates without permission like Chrome, for example, would constantly introduce bugs or change behavior without my permission in such a way that makes it largely unusable to me. On my chromebook computer I was able to temporarily block chromebook updates by manually setting the version number to a maximum value but the moment google found a way around that an update was pushed that screwed up touch screen functionality, so, realistically speaking, the heavy handed approach to updates is ultimately what causes me to stop updates. Ironically. While I understand a desire for security, these big companies just don't seem to realize that my computer is my own personal property so they can't treat it like it was under the authority of their IT department. I just want control over what my computer is doing. If and when I update it will be because I am ready to, not because someone else decided to force it on me.

This is not a question, more like a complaint, and DDG sent me here. The word complaint may seem inappropriate for sth like a browser which is the result of thousands of work hours of volunteers. Right? Thanks for that hard work, much respected!

Now, I did see that this very subject has already thousands of filed complaints, which naturally means that millions of people are annoyed about the very same thing, one that Firefox introduced some years ago. Fewer than few people even bother to write in, you know that. Because they feel, it's wasted time, "they do anyway what THEY want".

Maybe so. I write in, because I have hope. Still.

So: What is going on in the minds of "software programmers"/developers... since around the 90ies? Why always this PATRONIZING? Do you really, honestly, seriously, believe that you are any smarter than I am, or my neighbors, or you or your neighbors (you who reads this, probably not those who NEED to read it and act on it) ??

Well, I will say, for sure you are not, you are patronizing. And ADULTS. That's Grotesk!

I know perfectly well if I want to visit a site or not. And while I appreciate your concern about my health or what not, leave it at that concern, don't open it up to patronizing. Permanently. Everywhere. It's ridiculous!

I will add a screenshot here, so that YOU understand, this time. It documents that these "sw developers" leave NO option at all, even after you click this equally ridiculous "Advanced" button, to open a site YOU want. You as the owner of the computer you are using!

Such foolish patronizing is beyond words. To me. To many. I trust that at least words as clear as mine finally open up the minds of those responsible for this permanent annoyance. Yes?

We'll see. You're rolling out more updates than people change their pants. So, within a day or two we should see an update that will finally!!! STOP THIS PATRONIZING. Hm?

I would never use Chrome, the sniffer of everything. I am sad that Firefox introduces gimmicks all the time, but fails to listen to its user base. What THEY want.

And if you don't want to listen to what the users want, then why do you bother to write code for others? Just write for yourself then. Think. Amen. :)


You will deserve more praise when you stop this patronizing, this thinking, you are smarter than the rest of us. Not before.

This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

I'm going to say that for the last 3 versions of Firefox, I've had issues with many pages not loading images, not displaying the most current data, and every once in a long while (very infrequent) a page will just fail to completely load and I'll have to hit refresh so the wheels on the bus keep spinning.

Pages I have issues with: Yahoo Yahoo News Facebook CNN

The not loading images is the most frequent issue. Sometimes I'll need to reload a page a couple of times to see a pic. This is NOT on pages I have cached, but rather new pages I'm visiting.

The issue of not seeing new content is especially clear when approving new members or posts to a group within Facebook. This is a very regular occurance.

I just recently reloaded my computer from scratch (Mid Feb 2021), and this did NOT alleviate the issue, but rather it continued unabated.

The loading image issue looks like this.

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

Hello,

Sorry if there is already a solution to my problem but I've searched for hours without success.

I live in France and I purposely set my system language to English to have everything in English but for some specifics french websites I want them to be displayed in french by default. (not all of thoses websites offers to remember the default language nor have a language switcher)

I tried all the extensions suggested on superuser.com but none of them work (anymore, I guess).

By memory I tried the following Mozilla Firefox extensions with no success :

   Language Switcher
   Language Switch
   Quick Accept-Language Switcher

Also, the point is to "remember" the websites and default language because currently I always have to edit the URL to replace "en" by "fr" and then reload the page.

   OS version : macOS Big Sur 11.2.1
   Firefox version : 86.0

The other workaround I have is to use another browser with the French language set as default but I'm really looking for a solution allowing me to use only one browser for personal web browsing.

Thanks and have a nice day

Hey,

on one of my notebooks (Thinkpad E495) FF occasionally crashes. This started happening a few months ago. Before I've been using FF on the same machine for years without any issues. It's pretty random but usually happens at least once a day, usually shortly after startup or wakeup from hibernate mode. A while ago it used to even crash back to back twice in a row meaning after I reopened it, it immediately closed again and only worked after I selected to restore the previous session after the 2nd reopen. Nothing is registered under about:crashes and I don't see any errors in the system event log.

I already tried to disable hardware acceleration and reinstalled FF completely without any addons besides a different adblocker. I cannot really reproduce the crash in safe-mode but don't really want to browse the web for possibly hours without an adblocker.

Any ideas what this could be or what else I could try? Maybe downgrade to a previous version?

After moving to Firefox 78 ESR, get/setCookieString() is no longer working. For example:

   }

Firefox is running in kiosk mode and this code was executed with a hook in browser.js. Can someone please help me with this? Are there APIs I can use in place of these or are the Webextension APIs the only way to set a cookie now? I have tried playing around and can load a temporary extension but it's removed when restarting the browser and this also has to run in kiosk mode.
