After stupidly updatig Firefox, I found it DID NOT save my preferences and former settings. I went through Settings and set everything to what I think I had before, but now every, and I mean EVERY website is displaying ads that were not there before. I am uninstalling Firefox as soon as this page is exited and will be using Edge from now on. At least with MS, I know they are going to do their level best to annoy me. I expected better from Firefox. Bye!

I recently posted a question in - as I thought - the Mozilla community/support forum. I don't exactly remember the link I went to, but since I am logged in to my browser with a Firefox account, I could opt to log in to that forum with it, I didn't need to type my password, just click the button to use my existing account. So far so good.

I got an answer via e-mail. The email contained no plain link back to the post or answer. It contained a big green button "Mark as solved" and a link "This doesn't solve my problem", graphically positioned as to make it quite analogous to the big green button.

I didn't want to quickly mark the answer as either one, I wanted to go there to reply.

In the answer, however, the person answering me included a link to another post. I hoped that, clicking on this one, would - first of all - be of interest, and - secondly - lead me back to the forum in a neutral way so that I could find my own post there via my profile. Again, I clicked on a button to use Mozilla to login. Now I seem to have a second profile, the two are obviously not the same. Also, the forums don't quite seem to be the same. Support Mozilla vs Connect Mozilla. Why are they handled differently, why didn't I get the option to login with my firefox-account, when Connect Mozilla even gets my email adress automatically from it?

So, I had to try one of the buttons, they have different link addresses. I obviously tried the one that said "This doesn't solve my problem", and it plainly led me back to the answer on the (correct) forum and opened the replyform, also showing a button again: "Solved" and "This doesn't solve my problem". Why isn't the link in the email just labelled as linking you back to the forum, like "View thread" or "Reply to thread".

In addition I did not easily understand how to vote for the suggested idea in the linked post. A community manager had posted the reply that the post is now idea-status and that it is open to "votes (aka kudos)". No link or button to do it. Some scrolling around led my eye to an answer in the post to have one kudo, so I understood it had something to do with the like-button. Scrolled up to the original post, which did not have the word kudo on its like button, just a number. Hovering over it I finally got to know that I could give kudos by pressing this button. I got confused since several answers had this button. It was just a like-button to me, not the special vote-button that only appears if a manager opens the vote. Why is the manager text not just: "Vote (aka 'leave kudos') by clicking the like-button, which is now enabled."

Avoiding pre-existent setting for plugins to be overwritten from a new machine.

Hello everyone, I am experiencing this issue since - I suppose - Firefox Sync existed. My main machine has - like any other machine I own - Firefox always up to date and a set of plugins like No-Script, an ad-blocker, a theme, GUI icon disposition and whatnot. When I install Firefox on a new device or machine and then proceed to sync them, I lost the theme across all my synced devices, ALL of the registered sites I have trained No-Script and the adblocker not to block and my GUI settings. In short every new machine with a fresh install and sync of Firefox will wipe and overwrite to its defaults any synced custom configuration I have. Is there a solution for this?

Thank you.

Three weeks ago Mozilla disabled the Password Boss plug-in for Firefox. We contacted the developers about this and a few days later they submitted new code for your approval. It's been almost 3 weeks since then and NOTHING has happened! We used to use Firefox exclusively but had to move to Chrome because you disabled this plug-in (and we use it for EVERYTHING).

When will this be approved so we can install the Password Boss plug-in again? And why wasn't there ANY notification that you were going to do this? It crippled our work!

Hi there,

I've noticed that since a certain update (1 - 2 months ago?), when using the Firefox screenshot feature (that is, using Shift + Command/Ctrl + S), clicking on webpage still has effect on the webpage itself: After pressing Shift + Command/Ctrl + S, so that the browser enters screenshot mode, I have to click on a certain area in order to orient the screenshot camera, then click somewhere again, in order to click the "Copy" or "Download" button when the screenshot is ready. If I remember right, these two click actions wouldn't influence the webpage itself at all in older versions of Firefox, because in the screenshot mode the interaction between webpage and mouse clicks was "blocked". However, this is not the case anymore. That means, the webpage could no more look like how it looked like at the moment I wanted to take the screenshot, due to the unblocked mouse click. Even though for most static pages it's not a big deal, for many dynamic pages like online games this is absolutely annoying. Any workaround?

Firefox must've updated because this worked fine yesterday(7/11/24) but now I get this error when I try to access Google's main page.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site. The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it. If you are on a corporate network or using antivirus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.
