Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

There is no option to turn off https-only mode in preferences under security. I am running Firefox on Kali Linux. I need to be able to access http sites. So I did the about:settings and set everything that was https-only to false. Yet I still get the "unable to connect" and when you click on the i icon it says "connection not secure" I know it is not secure and it does not need to be. Is there anyway to get the latest version of firefox to go to http sites? There are some important plugins I use with burpsuite and I don't want to have to use a different browser. I know what the documentation says but there is no https-only mode option.

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

It would seem that Mozilla has not yet created an official portable mode for Firefox(Seriously, after all these years?!?). It needs one in a bad way.

Now when I say portable mode what I mean is that the Firefox EXE runs from the folder it's in, using profiles that generated and exist in that same folder and NOT in the user profile. This functionality is needed not just for easy portability, but also for easy migrations from one system to another or one installation of OS to another.

While the portability mode should be exclusive to the platform FireFox is being used on(IE Windows vs Linux, etc), it should be seamless transition otherwise.

Before anyone chimes in and says this is not possible, please don't waste your time. Forks of FF have been doing so nearly effortlessly for more than a decade while maintaining perfectly functionally and security with the same usability.

So Devs, can you please make this happen? We the public would ever so grateful.

Additionally, can we get some fine grained controls over the appearance of UI elements?

This double spacing nonsense is irritating.

Then there is the Extension Icons labels. They've been gone for a while and they need to return, or at least an option to enable them if we wish.

Next we have the "Home page and new windows" option in settings. Those two options should not be combined. When I open a new instance of FF, I would like to open a blank page. I don't want any navigation happening until I click something or type in an address. I expect FF to sit and wait for my input. Then when I click the "Home" icon button does it go to my define home page.

Next problem we have is the auto update feature. This seems to have become an incredibly nasty feature and behavior. For example, I recently updated to Windows 11. After migrating my previous install of FF to it, it swiftly and without ANY warning or user prompt at all updated itself from 78.15.0esr to 91.3. This was NOT desired So how about to folks show respect to us users by ASKING if we want to upgrade! Had a prompt appeared I would have swiftly canceled. Updates should ALWAYS be at the choice and involvement of the user, not at your whim. I had to spend 40minutes manually backtracking and recopying, which was unpleasant.

Please note that while my above statements have had some negativity to them, I am a ardent supporter of Mozilla and will continue to be. These above points are that of increasing frustration. I am of the school of thought that we the users should have complete and fine-grain controls over every aspect of how our browser operates, whether it be UI elements or nitty-gritty functionality.

I look forward to responses by members of the dev team.

Thank You, Lex

I switched my internet from one Mac to a newer one but I have hundreds of bookmarks that I need to copy over. I found and copied the profile document that holds all of the old bookmarks but I don't know where to put it in the new High Sierra OS folders. They are not the same as the old Mac OS has. The old OS has folders in, User, (my name), Library, App Support, Firefox, and Profiles where the bookmarks are stored. - - - Anyone know what folders these have to go into in High Sierra? - Will be most appreciated!

On another user's account, cannot go back to earlier FF version, profile files missing. Cannot start _any_ revision, old or current (using OSX Sierra on that user & different FF versions - the shared data you see her is NOT the same ) details here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356226

I don't see the profiles.ini and installs.ini files within the Profiles folder. I see the general format from looking at good ones in my own Profile.

Don't understand why some are "locked."

How do I re-create them using the existing Profile names, and how do I denote which to startup using (the default folder?) Can't find any Help files to explain.

This is driving me mad, we are using the same physical computer because mine broke, so I start it up off an external drive containing my drive, then I have to shut down & restart on the internal drive to work on it, but then I don't have access to my saved files or to post on the forum.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I am writing to you because of Mozilla's new add-on policies. I am especially focusing on the point: Encryption – standard, in-browser HTTPS – is now always required when communicating with remote services. In the past, this was only required when transporting sensitive information. While I am supporting this new rule, I would like to ask, if there is any chance to be excluded from this policy. I am the developer of Domain Country, an add-on which allows you to retrieve the geographical information (and other data) about a given domain. To retrieve this data, Domain Country uses the API https://ip-api.com/. Unfortunately, this API requires a paid key to be accessible via HTTPS (Example URL: https://ip-api.com/json/mozilla.org). While I am very frustrated about this solution, I still decided to implement it, because I could not find another free API service. To still ensure that users are protected against Man-in-the-middle-attacks, I decided to manually validate the data after it is received (the code for Domain Country is open-source. This is the line, I'm talking about: https://github.com/Myzel394/domaincountry/blob/master/src/apis/fetchDomainInformation.ts#L94). Domain Country will also be continuously updated to ensure the user's safety. As a student with only low income it is also impossible for me to pay for https://ip-api.com/.


I hope you understand my problems and consider excluding Domain Country from the new add-on policy.

NOTE: This issue is NOT with the computer I am using at the moment. That computer runs OSX Sierra.. So disregard my "Shared Data" info.

For reasons I will rant about below, I had to trash my copy of FF v69.0.1 Mac and restore it from the .dmg file. FF will not allow me to activate the correct profile, only the new empty profile.

Maybe because the accidental installation of (several copies of) newer versions changed some of the items within the "old" profile (they have today's date) ???

Do I need to scrub every hidden bit of FF, beyond Trashing visible files (except for the Profile I desire to keep) ? Then re-install v69 so it doesn't tell me I'm installing an old version? Or will the "todays date" data within the Profile screw it up anyway? Copying the Profile file list & getting it to this computer to post here would take a lot of time & effort. But its the files at the top of the Profile's file list, maybe 25% or 1/3 of the files, when ordered by date.

PROFILES: default-release-6 CREATED WHEN OPENING "NEW" INSTALLATION OF v69-0-1 default-est THIS IS THE ONE WITH ALL MY DATA NOTE there were many others, either leftover from very old FF versions or junked Users, and for every accidental newer version installed (see below for how that happens without user permission). I trashed or archived them.

WITH FIREFOX RUNNING, ABOUT:PROFILES GIVES AN ERROR & WON'T ALLOW ME TO "DEFAULT" the PROFILE ORIGINALLY USED WITH THIS VERSION: "you've launched an older version of firefox...can corrupt stuff...that was already saved to an existing profile create new profile OR quit"

This means it is impossible to re-install an "old" version of FF unless you want to lose everything in your profile !!!!!

I have tried to manually copy & paste the "old" contents into the "new" profile, but I get the same error.

Tried with FF closed, but the Terminal keeps telling me there is no such file: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P

AT ONE POINT I TRIED TO MAKE IT MATCH THE FILENAME I CHANGED IT TO (I LIKE TO SEE THE REV IN A FILENAME) - DO I NEED TO PUT UNDERLINES INSTEAD OF BLANK SPACES? /Applications/Firefox 69-0-1 re-installed from dmg.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P

SO THAT IS WHEN I TRASHED THAT RENAMED COPY OF FF, -- because OSX SIERRA WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO MOVE IT OUT OF THE APPLICATIONS FOLDER TO ARCHIVE IT (ANOTHER REASON I WANT TO STAY WITH EL CAPITAN MY MY COMPUTER).

RE location of Profile files: about:profile shows TWO paths, what gives with this? The path that you can Show In Finder yields an empty folder. Are they invisible? But the other path, which I think is the one I have used in the path, does have Profile folders within it:

CORRECT PATH TO FIREFOX PROFILE FILES: /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles BUT DELETING FROM HERE DOES NOT REMOVE THEM FROM THE ABOUT:PROFILES LIST, EVEN WHEN I CLOSE FF & RE-OPEN IT - wtf ???

The about:profiles link to show it in Finder goes elsewhere & is empty: USERS/ADMIN/LIBRARY/CACHES/FIREFOX/PROFILES ARE THEY SET TO BE INVISIBLE? THIS USER DOES NOT HAVE THE 3rd PARTY APP TO MAKE THEM VISIBLE.

THE FUNDAMENTAL PROBLEM THAT GOT ME HERE: I foolishly decided to give the next rev up a try, v 72-something. But when I opened it, the default of "automatically install updates" did so to v93, without my knowledge. This happened a few times in a row, when I kept wondering why I did not have v72 running & kept re-installing from the v72 dmg file. I was unable to make my v69 profile the default for either v72 or v93, don't know why not.

THE AUTO INSTALL SHOULD ONLY GO TO THE NEXT REV, NOT THE MOST RECENT, WITHOUT USER PERMISSION.

So I trashed most everything and installed v69 again from the dmg file. When I opened it, I quickly went to Prefs/Gen and un-toggled the Auto Update. It asked me if I wanted to cancel & I did. This is only possible because I have a slow DSL line. Anyone with a T1 line would be screwed.

So I have a "fresh" copy of v69 but I can't put the CORRECT Profile into it !!!

Firefox has been the only browser that I could scroll properly on the touchpad. Any other browser would take 20 (two finger trackpad)swipes to get from top of page to bottom, Firefox took 2 swipes. With most recent update, Firefox reacted as other browsers so I deleted it and went to v. 78.15.0esr and it worked fine again. This last update put me back in slow scroll again (v. 91.3.0 esr) so I restored my computer back to 78.15.0esr. It is very time consuming to have to swipe 20 times when 2 will do it and I don't want to update again. I have tried researching why this happens and it has something to do with the way Chrome is set up and Firefox is going to that system. Pardon my lack of knowledge, I only know when there is a problem for me, not why. I just want to be able to conveniently use my laptop and apparently I am doomed if I update again. Please advise if there is an answer.

Also, it seems that most people with trackpad problems is that it is scrolling too fast.....I wish that were my problem rather than the reverse. I have tried Edge and Chrome and they all were slow/choppy and Firefox was my answer, until now.
