Windows 10 Home.Lots of memory. Here is what the Firefox upgrade to 94.0.1(I believe that's it - can't tell because of loss of tool bar) has done to my laptop: (1) destroyed saved passwords (2) destroyed File History (3) Caused several programs to cease to function (4) destroyed bookmarks (5) destroyed task bar and eliminated all shortcuts (6) because of destruction of File History, made it impossible to do a Microsoft Restore.

This is truly the worst computer experience in my long life. I have tried desperately to tell Firefox NEVER TO UPGRADE WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. No luck. I am absolutely sick at heart over the dire situation in which this unwanted upgrade has left me. Is there ANY HELP???????? I'm pretty desperate. Thanks for reading.

P.S. AND NO, I CAN NOT BOOT INTO SAFE MODE. Microsoft now hates me and is unable to install updates; however, life is not that simple. In spite of my telling MS not to update without permission, it continues to try - which fails, which wastes about 2.5 hours.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and Firefox latest updates. For some time (including previous versions) I've noticed that some Amazon Prime videos won't play in HD 1080p despite my system supporting HDCP (confirmed by NVIDIA driver). I do not have 4k/UHD HDCP 2 support. I looked at previous complaints here, and tried deleting site data and cookies, and then all cookies for everything, and then refreshed Firefox, but none of this fixed it. I'm able to watch HD 1080p in Edge browser. For reference, I'm playing Fisherman's Friends movie. I've found that Amazon's own content will play in 1080p in Firefox.

I removed the 32 bit version of firefox some time ago and installed the Firefox 64 bit version on my larger secondary drive. Firefox recently updated but the update cause the same version of firefox (version 94.0.1 build 20211103134640) into multiple hard-drives (C & D drives) and different folders. There are now multiple icons in my start menu and the task bar for firefox. They BOTH each fight for the default browser setting as if they were different browsers, and only one will open my previous windows and tabs at startup. I only want firefox to be installed on my secondary drive as my C drive has a much smaller capacity. How can I distinguish and remove one of these conflicting multiple copies of Firefox from my PC without loosing my saved tabs or all of my personal data? Why is firefox installing as 2 different apps, on 2 different hard drives, along the same profile path in two different profile folders as shown with "more troubleshooting information" from the help dropdown menu?

When I forward some links, rather than taking the recipient to the specific YouTube page, the link takes them to the YouTube home page. Other sites I can still forward correctly. I have researched this issue and except for a virus that affected Firefox a few years back, I have found nothing. I have run spyware, malware, and virusware with no change.

Is this a YouTube issue? Another form of Big Tech censorship? Anyone else out there having issues like this?

I finally put FireFox in the garbage can in my iMac (Big Sur 11.5.1) and flushed it and then downloaded a new copy. No difference. I deleted all my cookies per the Firefox suggested repair page. Why would a specific site generate these forward issues? Just for giggles, I tried a forward in Safari (which I never otherwise use) and the links work correctly.

I have been a Firefox supporter from the very beginning and hate to swap browsers. Thank you to all the wonderful code writers and tech support volunteers out there who make this effort possible.

Hello !

I'm pretty new packager and i have to deploy Firefox ESR for 5000 users thought SCCM using a simple powershell scripts, copying files, configs etc..

With the latest 91 ESR one, I'm not abble to make the Browser auto checking the pop up anymore (see picture bellow). This pop up authorising Citirix Storefront to be opened with Citrix Receiver.

I thought it was the handlers.json ("receiver":{"action":4}}}) but it does not work : when the users will gonna update the browser, i'm afraid the will be lost with this popup.

Do you guys would know how to deal with it ?

A big thanks Rem

Hey.

I don't know if it's a "problem" or it's really right.

What you need to do for see an example of what I'm saying: 1. Open Telegram Web (web.telegram.org/k/) 2. Right click on any link 3. Right click again, over the link

You'll see a normal options menu, FF is not recognizing as a link So, because of that we can't open links using private window

I don't think anyone has noticed that yet.

Hi,

I wonder why Firefox is so slow when a site is present in it's cache.

It's been the same problem for years, whenever I'm getting a long TTFB from the server, let's say a TTFB of a second or two, I know that clearing Firefox's cache of that site will resolve the issue and bring down the TTFB to it's normal of around 100ms.

Why and how clearing the cache changes the server TTFB?

Thank you.

Version 94.0.2 (64-bit) Windows 10

Hi.

A few times in Settings I selected History->Never remember history, yet upon reopening the browser the setting was changed to "Use custom settings for history" and "Always use private mode." Why is this happening?

The larger issue is Cached Web Content (CWC), which doesn't completely delete like everything else. No matter the settings to delete everything upon closing or never remember, every time I reopen FF and click Clear Data there is some data in CWC (albeit in kb). I've read many pages and posts here and it's still not clear: A) Why isn't it 0 bytes and B) If a previously visited site can access the CWC, then isn't that a strike against privacy?

Sincerley,

Hank

The storage of Logins & Passwords needs a new feature. The system lacks the ability to store a Nickname (aka Note/Comment) to each login entry. Some domains are different than the commonly known website name.

When entering credit card info in a web form, Firefox will pop up a dialog asking if I'd like to save the card info. If I click yes, the dialog closes but the info is not saved. If I go into settings where one can view the saved cards and enter the info to save a new one, I can enter one but again it does not actually save. There is no error, it just doesn't save. Tailing journalctl shows no errors, and launching Firefox from a console and watching the output doesn't show any error either.

It's been this way over several updates over the course of a few months (as long as I've been using Firefox on this computer).
