Ok guys, first I've been using this browser since it was called Netscape 1.0.

This is quite some time ago, right? But now level of suffering has become too high. I'm not writing 10 finger system. I've not studied computer science. (However a MINT subject.)

Nowadays at least weekly a website crashes, because I'm typing some unknown (to me) key combination, which causes the site to reload, Firefox to close, a new tab to be replaced, or whatsoever bullshit. And no way to switch off short cuts (at least as far as I have found out).

Even to get to this page was an odyssey. First set up an account, the confirmation code not accepted, a resend request omitted, finally some old password worked. On the way restart browser, as accidentially again I typed some key sequence, which killed the browser task....

I'll switch to edge or chrome, or whatsoever, because I'm really fed up. After over 25 years. Is that, what you wanted? The kids of 25 or below don't care about Mozilla! They even don't ask a single question about their browser (on Android - guess, what they use...). I know about of this, as I've got two of those here at home.

I'm not asking for help, since this already beyond scope. This is a farewell post. My mails are managed by Pegasus ever since and I'll return to Opera now, despite it is the Webkit engine. Netflix runs smoothly. Firefox and Netflix is a neverending vexation. I've been using Opera as well for over 20 years. They did a better job.

It's bitter, but for me, it's the truth....

I have the download setting to "Always ask you where to save files". Unfortunately, Firefox keeps changing the setting back to the default. I understand that, unfortunately, whenever Firefox does an update it changes all my settings back to the defaults (but that's a different issue).

I have 'Firefox updates' set to only install when I okay the install. Unfortunately something is changing even when I have not run an update.

Why might my download settings be reverting back to the default setting?

FF is nagging me to no end to upgrade, from 82.0.3 to whatever. I would prefer to just get rid of the nags if that is possible.

Short of that, the upgrades are NEVER as advertised and always blow up things that are never covered in the upgrade release notes. I get the impression these upgrades are poorly tested. The last site-specific video AutoPlay problem I had took two months to fix -- no thanks to FF support. But I got it fixed. That involved Engineer Buddys at Intel and the source code.

Here I'll ask the same old question and no doubt get the same canned response -- Are there any unexpected blow-ups I need to know about NOT covered in the release notes ? Of course the answer will be No, because the volunteers are not privy to the thinking and failures of the developers.

Let me be clear about this: When/if I upgrade (because the changes wrought in my modified browser will be blown out and I'll need to co-opt more help with that) is there anything extant that will not work ? Anything at all -- especially with respect to video AutoPlay features ?

Upgrade agony got way too old a long, long time ago with respect to settings I had tweaked and got blown out...

Can anyone help with this ?

Preferred solution: Shutdown the upgrade nags.

Based on my friend's statement to me that HE WAS ABLE TO EASILY DOWNLOAD ANYBODY'S YOUTUBE VIDEO VIA HIS FIREFOX BROWSER I put Firefox on my desktop PC specifically so that I could download my own youtube videos via my youtube channel's DOWNLOAD BUTTON that had suddenly (after working fine for several months) stopped working for me on Chrome. *This download button had been for weeks working perfectly fine in my brand new FIREFOX browser but has just now suddenly stopped working: Is this a problem with FIREFOX or is youtube preventing me (by blocking my IP address or something) from downloading to my PC MY OWN VIDEOS?

Suddenly I am unable to log into Facebook. I have made no changes to my computer or to Firefox. When I try to go to Facebook the credentials box comes up, then before I can type in my credentials another small window appears with the title bar "Not Logged In" and Please Log in to Continue, and two little buttons at the bottom Cancel or Log In. I am unable to input my credentials at all; the little window keeps coming up. I am able to successfully log into Facebook using Microsoft Edge browser.

I am running Windows 7.

Hi all,

Last weekend Firefox updated to 82.02 automatically and the font is now very Chrome-like in that it is grey and grainy which causes me massive eye strain.

I switched from Chrome to Firefox because of the bolder, blacker fonts. Now I'm probably stuck in version 81 for the rest of time which is not a long term solution. Is there a way to use version 81 font rendering in updated versions of Firefox.

Thanks,

Jayule

I want to have a unified bookmark experience over two different user accounts on my desktop computer (one is my 'ordinary' account, the other is the Administrator' account. Importing bookmarks is a one-time event, and entropy takes over immediately afterwards. It occurs to me that using a Shortcut, to point to a single file, may be a solution. The idea being that any change to the single file will automatically perpetuate itself to both accounts.

My question - is this reasonable, or is there an even niftier way of doing this (a sort of "Blend the properties for these two accounts" type of setting).

Thanks,

Tony
