I thought Pocket's articles were supposed to be non-commercial, if "Sponsored stories" is turned off in the settings?

And yet Pocket has just recommended a highly commercial link that's far removed from a genuine article, and reads exactly like an advert. (https://www.inverse.com/entertainment/leaving-netflix-september-2021-star-trek-enterprise)

This "article" basically just forcibly tells the reader "YOU NEED TO" sign up to the premium video website "Netflix", without any explanation of why. Patently, it was funded by whatever company owns Netflicks.

The article also makes the outrageous claim that the TV show in question is "the most controversial sci-fi show on Netflix", but completely fails to back this up with facts, or any explanation at all. It's clearly just marketing rhetoric to generate interest in the show, because the show in question (which is 20 years old) was notoriously bland, isn't even remotely controversial, no one is talking about it, and there is absolutely no logical reason to re-watch it right now.

The article also tries to give the impression that the only way to watch this 20-year-old TV show is to sign up to the premium website Netflicks and watch it on a computer screen - which is absurd given that the show is constantly syndicated on TV around the world, and readily available on all home formats including DVD and Blu-ray.

I would like to know how I can complain about this to Mozilla, because it isn't right at all. If by some chance, this article was non-commercial, it would be a truly terrible, dishonest, badly-written article which completely lacked a point or purpose. But it's so obviously commercial.

I found countless other disingenuous "articles" on that site, all doing a similar thing with other TV shows—driving commerce to Netflicks under the pretense of a false sense of urgency. Mozilla should have nothing to do with garbage like this.

If I open Google Maps in Firefox, it shows I'm in Lubbock, Texas. I am not. I'm in Arizona. Google Maps on Chrome gets it right. Bing maps gets it wrong in Firefox but right in Chrome too. Same with Google Earth in the browser. My IP location is correct and shows I'm in AZ. It's seems to be a Firefox issue. I've turned location off and back on. Cleared cookies. I'm at a loss.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop.

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

31-August 2021 . Hi all, recently the Australian government , “Bureau of Meteorology” weather and radar – website has stopped working under HTTPS and FireFox – it does work under Microsoft Edge though (Yuk). . Unfortunately even if under the FireFox internal settings - you disable the need for a HTTPS connection – the website still kicks you out anyway – and any direct call to the site (http://www.bom.gov.au) – will just kick you to an endless loop of no achievement – by basically constantly telling you “you cannot use HTTPS” and the HTTP link provided just loops you back to the same place. . For now – the only solution I have found is to leave “HTTPS” on – and create an exception for every single page (very zzzzz). . So for me , I am only excepting and viewing the local weather radar page and getting all other info from other sources. . Machine specs - Win10 Pro , Firefox Version 91.0.2 (64-bit) . I have also (via Edge) – reported this to the “BOM” in Australia, . I hope this helps someone , as I cannot be the only person in Australia trying to access this site – but having to sign up - to report the problem here, I did find more than a bit off putting.

I am having a problem where when I click on .package files to download them, I am always getting a pop-up box making me choose what to do with the file, and I am never given the option to 'always do this with this type of file' or anything. I went into settings hoping to make this change manually, but .package files were not in the list of content types I could set actions for - no matter what website I was downloading from. Additionally, during the same session, I downloaded a .zip file and DID have the option to check off downloading as a default action. I recently got a new computer and was expecting to have to reconfigure some things, but I can't figure out why I can't set a default for package files in particular. I download a lot of them as mods for the Sims, so this is very frustrating lol.

There has been a legitimate issue with the bookmarks since the 92.0 update. This applies only to Windows 7 users. The list is very lazy and will actually freeze up. It takes forever to highlight the bookmark you want and the favicons are delayed in populating. Refreshing Firefox doesn't work. Renaming favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite, and those with the -shm and -wal extensions, if existing, doesn't work either. I don't need help from contributors. The following message is to the developers &/or whoever bastardized Firefox since the 92.0 update...


As I stated, this is a Windows 7 issue. The developers should fix this problem for us Windows 7 users. It was them who caused this issue since the 92.0 update. Everything worked perfect until then. Here’s a bright idea for the developers. How about getting this matter fixed, so that us Windows 7 users can have the same functionality as everyone else. Stop screwing around with a million and one updates every year. You people are doing more harm than good. The people running Chrome are a hell of a lot more intelligent. No issues whatsoever with Windows 7! Try that on for size.

I've got a Macbook pro and love using the swipe gestures for productivity but sometimes it can make certain websites (e.g. Google sheets) frustrating to use.

The issue is that the swipe right feature has 2 main functions on firefox:

1. Go backwards a page 2. Scroll left on the same page

It becomes an issue when I zoom into a slide/image/etc. and I just want to scroll left but it's interpreted as going back a page instead.

It would be ideal if there was a way to prevent the 'go back' (swipe right) feature for a second, thereby using the scroll function instead... this could be done by holding cmd and swiping right to disable the back page function. There is a similar app called Forky Slide Scrolling Stopper, which prevents the 2 finger scroll up/down from changing slides - it would be good to have something like this for the 2 finger scroll left/right.

My question is - is there an add on or app that allows this feature?

I'm currently using Firefox 78.15.0esr 64-bit and there's supposed to be an update to 90-something, but I don't want to upgrade because the reason why I downgraded to this version was a major problem I had with the latest Firefox--that problem being that it would go in and out of Full Screen mode by itself regardless of whether I was watching a Youtube video or not, even if I never pressed F11. It would just jump in and out of fullscreen on its own, sometimes just showing a black screen and forcing me to restart the computer entirely because when it holds on the black screen, my monitor would just turn off.

So, is there a way to opt out of this update if the upgraded ESR is just going to do the same thing as regular Firefox?

FINALLY, after 10-15 min of searching & almost giving UP and almost looking for ANOTHER browser, other than google . . . .like maybe opera or safari. I have tried brave & didn't like the page setup. also tried waterfox & didn't like it well enough to stay. but if you keep changing things as you have & making it harder for me to contact you I might HAVE to install another browser because it is getting harder & HARDER to just type a message to someone I FINALLY FOUND THIS where I can message you. one thing about brave was they didn't seem to have the menu bar at the top which I like. I DON'T WANT to try to talk to anyone in some FORUM. YOU answer to my problem here. that is much EASIER.

NOW on to the CURRENT PROBLEM: I DON'T use search engines that YOU have most of the time, like duckduck or Result Hunter although the latter is the4 default engine. I USE 4search. now I JUST downloaded the latest firefox update and NOW I CANNOT connect to 4search, nothing comes up. the other engines DO though.

I HAVE not yet tried to restart the computer . . . maybe that will fix it??? OR do I need to try restarting with all firefox addons disabled????

and I remember that I USED to be able to go BACK to an EARLIER edition of firefox but NOW I don't SEE that option ANYWHERE. I DIDN'T HAVE this problem of not being able to use 4search earlier today or yesterday or any other time, but only NOW after installing that new version of firefox.

I have this problem since version 92.0. I've been through all of the troubleshooting steps and they made no difference. I'm on a Mac and Safari works fine. When I open pages, it's usually using "Open link in a new tab". most of the time, the new tab is blank with the address at the top. If I click the refresh button, I get the page I was linking to. I have not seen the problem when I use "Open link in a new window".
