I just started using Firefox recently. I can't get my search engine to stick. Every time i change it it changes back to Google. Every time I delete Google it shows back up . It's like a bad infection. How can I change my search engine and not have it revert back to default? I have performed all of the recommended procedures with no success. And I have no add-ons installed.

I've posted the following in the MS Office Forum:

In the Word desktop app I used "-->", which Word autoconverts to a nice arrow. When viewing the document in the browser version of Word it gets mangled and shows up as a "à" symbol. Note: This happens on the same computer! My browser is Firefox (84.0.2). When using Edge or Chrome the arrows are displayed properly.

And got the following answer:

This appears to be a bug in Firefox. The two characters have the same Unicode value, 00E0, but the arrow is in the Wingdings font while the à is displayed in most non-symbol fonts. Although the font box on the ribbon in Word Online says the font of the character is Wingdings, Firefox fails to show it in that font.

Given that both Edge and Chrome seem to be able to display the document correctly, it seems to me that this is a Firefox bug?

Hello.

I noticed that when using the newest version of Firefox (84.0.2) I can go up to "logins and passwords" and all that's needed, even when not logged into the Firefox account in any way is to just click the "eye" icon and it shows the password.

How is this in any way considered secure? Anyone, at any time can just click this and see the passwords to all my web sites. I guess I will need to go back to using Edge where at least it asks me to use my PC login before it shows the passwords.

Firefox recently - now seeing ver. 84.0.02 in Jan 2021 - when trying to print a page in Firefox Browser is really poor and very difficult to use. What stupid programmer or Mozilla exec decided to take away the option to easily re-size (or "simplify pages") and then easily select pages which pages to print? Stupid decision - very stupid. Makes me decide to change from Firefox and go elsewhere for a browser!!! NOW I have to, when I print, go through an extra step of selecting ":Print using the system dialog..." to easily select double sided printing and select only desired pages. AND I STILL CANNOT RECONFIGURE THE ZOOM TO REDUCE AMOUNT OF PAPER USED!. Really, really a bad decision. Change back...or tell me how to get rid if this new Print Option Menu and go back or I just quit Firefox....quit Mozilla. (OK - I just went exploring and fond 'size adjustment' and 'print on two sides' under the options. Still pretty shitty and I am so pissed off by now, I am changing my primary/default browser and taking Firefox off my desktop, iPhone, iPad and laptop. So no reply is needed. Just pass this on to Mozilla and let them see what such unannounced changes does to their customer base. Stay safe...2021 is not looking any better than the last shitty year.

Hi. I installed a POP account to download/import my ATT.net webmail account, but it only downloaded the inbox.

I was told to create local folders, move the POP account into them, then delete the POP, then add the IMAP, but I didn't feel safe doing that so I ended up creating an IMAP account in addition to the POP.

The IMAP account recreated all the folders from ATT.net and all the messages in them, in TB, so I didn't have to manually sort thousands of messages again.

I had already checked:

Account Settings, Synchronization & Storage, Message Synchronizing, Keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer Disk Space, Synchronize all messages locally regardless of age Don't delete any messages

Aren't the folders that the IMAP account created "local"? If so, wouldn't creating local folders duplicate them?

Is it safe to delete the POP account?

Thanks

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

I am loading Tb (78.6.0 32-bit) on two new win 10 Pro installations. Incoming mail works fine but sending mail it asks for the pword again after login and it continually fails. Then the attached err msg appears.

Also Attached are the instructions from my ISP, Sonic.net for connecting to Tb. Their tech dept. double checked my config and sending emails from their web mail program works as expected.

My current email connection (on Win 8.1 Pro) has been in place for over 5 years and still works fine on my main account but I found that the less frequently used email addresses have the same exact problem (Upgraded to 78.6.0) even though NONE of them have the currently recommended server settings and the ISP does not have a separate IMAP Pword. This makes the problem difficult to track down as I am not certain where to look for a problem. Otherwise I have been a happy user for ~10 years.

Thanks for any assistance,

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?
