Hi, I love Firefox. Until the day a new version is released. I download the new version and faithfully decide to restart both Windows and Firefox. Only to slap myself a second later for not BACKING UP MY TABS, crossing fingers and crying while restarting Firefox TELLING MYSELF that "No, Jo, THIS TIME they have had fixed it and all the tabs will STILL BE THERE, Firefox employs some intelligent coders, YOUR TABS AND HISTORY ARE SAFE, Jo!

but no :'(

This happens... EVERY time. Can you add a few lines of code to prompt me to save the current session BEFORE restarting the browser post-update??? Please? I beg you?

(

Thanks, Jo

I completely removed Firefox and deleted all folders. After installing Firefox fresh, Firefox sees that it was previously installed?? "Looks like you've reinstalled Firefox. Want us to clean it up for a fresh, like-new experience?"

I uninstalled Firefox (supposedly) "completely" using the guide here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/uninstall-firefox-from-your-computer

Why does the new install Firefox recognize that it was previously installed? Uninstall tool needs to uninstall Firefox COMPLETELY. Since it lies, can someone help tell me what is the appropriate steps for COMPLETE removal?

In light of Mozilla's censorious decision to create the Mozilla Information Trust Initiative, a thinly veiled attempt to control information and user experience online, I will no longer be using your browser.

The fact that you have made it near impossible to communicate directly to your company (hence this roundabout support ticket in lieu of a simple email) adds to frustration with your company, as well as the increasing slowness and dysfunction of the browser.

You have betrayed my trust, your company has become arrogant and untrustworthy, and so I will be switching to an upstart competitor.

Good luck.

When I started Firefox today, I was directed to a survey about local news. The URL looked trustworthy, so I answered all questions best I could and tried to submit the form. It blocked, telling me that I had not answered one question :-(

The question in question (pun intended) was multiple choice with more than one answer allowed. It asked me whether I would normally share local news via various social media channels. But I dislike social media so I had not selected any option.

Unfortunately the survey maker required at least one selected option. Obviously there is no place in today's world for people like me :-(

Result: I buckled and selected ALL options. This allowed me to complete the survey. My apologies for the unreliable survey results!

Recommended solution: Please add an option "None of the above" to this question.

Alternative solution (more polite, IMHO): Allow users to skip questions that they do not want to answer.

Page turning machine.

Who is in charge of developing Rube Goldberg devices? Firefox should apply for the Guinness book of world records due to the unneeded complexity of the browser. They would probably lose out to Microsoft though.

I don't have a week to devote to learning all about something new. Firefox has always been crazy with updates every three hours that change all your settings so you have to re-do them. Now I can't find how to add something to favorites. I am sorry, I am busy and do not have time to read a book about your browser just to "learn how" to do things on it. Yoo hoo--- people in business DO NOT USE THEIR PHONES FOR EVERYTHING. So if this is primarily a phone or tablet browser, just say so and I will just uninstall it and quit being frustrated. Why have you kept changing and changing it until it is unusable? This is why people don't like it any more--- not because it isn't "phone friendly'! Get a clue! Hire someone over 13 who has actually some experience running a business to see what business people want in a browser and fix it!

I would like to have a conversation with the developer who had the brilliant idea of applying LZ4 to the formerly plain text session backup files that were used since the beginning and worked perfectly fine.

What is the name of the person whose idea it was to add a “feature” to Firefox that made recovering lost sessions so much easier and saving 3 MB of my disk space for wasting over 100 minutes of my time figuring out how to handle LZ4 works and how to get the plain text that would normally be written directly to the disk after Firefox failed to recover the session after a crash and after file system readability problems?

And did the community explicitly ask for LZ4? Were there users of Mozilla Firefox that recommended LZ4? Who exactly had the idea of implementing LZ4?

Will places.sqlitelz4 (or “places.sqlite.lz4”) become the next victim of lz4?

Thanks in advance.
