Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1403460]
I just updated Firefox to version 109. Every single thing that I liked about Firefox is now GONE. Options are GONE. Customizing the toolbar - GONE. Adding toolbars - GONE!!! It lost my open tabs. It won't show the LastPass icon in the toolbar like it used to, so I have to hunt for it now. All my toolbar settings - GONE!

Mozilla - you really should WARN people BEFORE they update that the update is a major overhaul. Why would you just make yourself another Chrome? If I wanted to use Chrome, I would (and I probably will now), but I prefer Firefox - at least I DID prefer Firefox before this update. I do not understand why you completely RUINED Firefox! This update is horrible and I have now lost a full day at work trying to FIX this clusterf**k of a browser mess that you have made for me! For the life of me I do not understand why you took away the ability for the user to make Firefox more user-friendly. Before, I could choose to customize if I wanted to, or not to customize. Now I have no choice and am stuck with the way YOU want it. Well, I don't like the way you want it! I liked it the way I had it customized! I am so stinking furious with you right now! I will be reverting to the prior version and will then search for a new browser. I am really sick of companies taking away things that make their products better. Congratulations, Firefox - you are now Chrome's Clone.

This problem occurred Oct 24, 2020 Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time (3 weeks after daylight savings time came into effect here). The operating system time is correct. I have cleared the cache several times, rebooted and shut down overnight.

A forum site is displaying the correct times. A site displaying weather information uses the correct time; I loaded it just after 3am and the first time it displayed was 6am as expected.

1. A TV guide normally highlights in red programs currently showing; at present it shows programs showing one hour previously. In Google-Chrome no programs are highlighted. I have removed the cookies and that has made no difference. 2. Facebook.com times are one hour late, both the time of posts in the newsfeed and times of notifications.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Hi. I am trying to reach a site that I have in the past found a good reference site (if you like reptiles), Ian's Vivarium. I am in up-to-date Firefox for Win10, I have refreshed Firefox to no effect. Error message on the website is: "You are running an unsupported PHP version. Please upgrade to PHP 7.1.3 or higher before trying to install or update to phpBB 3.3" at the top of a wholly blank page.

I get the same error when attempting Chrome and Edge (which crawled back onto my PC uninvited)... maybe a website issue?

Help?

While not totally computer illiterate, I'm pretty close....

Thanks in advance?

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

Hallo und guten Tag,

ich möchte gern mehrere websites als Startseite haben, wenn ich den Firefox browser öffne. Wie das geht wird auf der Firefox Seite sehr gut erklärt.

Zwar ist es mir gelungen, google als Startseite durch drag & drop auf das Haus Symbol zu ziehen. Jetzt würde ich habe gern weitere Registerkarten als Startseite festlegen.

Wenn ich (wie in der Erklärung) jedoch auf die Menüschaltfläche mit den drei Strichen klicke und danach auf "Startseite" klicke, ist das Fenster "Startseite und neue Fenster" leider inaktiv, so dass ich nicht weiterkomme. Wie kann ich dieses inaktive Fenster aktivieren. Wo liegt der Fehler.

Ich hoffe sehr, dass mir bei diesem Problem jemand helfen kann und würde mich über eine Antwort sehr freuen. Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Beste Grüße, Sabine

I recently had to uninstall and re-install Firefox to deal with a software conflict issue. I then reset all of my preferences, including using www.google.com as my homepage. Before the re-install, private browsing tabs opened as a different, darker color theme than regular tabs, and they opened on the Firefox home page. Now, they open on the same Google home page as the regular tabs and are the same color as regular tabs, which can be confusing. How do I get back to a darker-theme private browsing tab? Thank you.

BlogThis! (provided by Blogger/Blogspot/Google) is a javascript that I keep in my bookmark tool bar. Clicking on it opens a popup that includes the title/url of the focus tab for blogging. Cuts down substantially on cut/paste/edit that can impact accuracy.

It stopped working after the latest upgrade - 85.0 (64-bit) - and started throwing a "popup blocked" message in my way.

I have not tested the WordPress version - Press this - which is s similar javascript provided by WordPress for the same function.

Whitelisting the blogger.com url did nothing, and I cannot whitelist every site I might ever want to quote from without turning off popup blocking.

This is beyond annoying.

I get popup blocking. I use in all of my browsers, but for years I have been using FF as my primary browser. You seem determined to push me away. (Making me log into the browser, giving you access to everything I am doing just to ask a support question is also not cool.)

Before they updated their printing process, you could go to properties and change to black and white, or fast, or whatever. NOW, I can't find that option anywhere and it's awful. It's like they totally copied what Chrome looks like and Chrome's printing is awful. Mozilla was always better until now.

If anyone knows if there is some trick to getting to the properties page, that'd be great!
