Is spell-checking done locally on my computer, or is it done on the Mozilla website? I just found out that the Chrome and Edge browsers send my typed message to the home office, and that is where the spell-checking is done. Can I assume that this process is done locally on my own computer with Firefox?

I've been paranoid about security for many years, and every little bit of info I can add to my personal well-being lets me sleep that much better at night.

I am currently 82 years of age and have been using Firefox since it first became available, just because of its advertised security features. Quite happy with it and hope it stays on top of my needs.

And I have the same question regarding Thunderbird and its security properties.

Thank you.

Greetings,

I created a theme for myself via the Firefox Colors add-on, downloaded and uploaded the .xpi file to the Firefox add-on store and got it working great. However, I made one color tweak and when I went to upload the new .xpi file from Firefox Colors and when I go to manage my add-ons to update a new version, after uploading the updated theme, I get the following error:

"Version 1.0 already exists."

Not sure where I can go from here, but appreciate any help to get me able to update my theme.

If needed, here is my theme just in case: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gnome-adwaita-gtk4-dark/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

I want to report that spyware named FindItPro which I, foolishly, downloaded. Well, it's a virus, right? But no antivirus can delete it completely. It comes back and you can't find the source. So, there should be some problem in your browser that allows it to live.

I'll send you a website where I got it. [link to suspected malware removed] BE CAREFUL. Virus will be downloaded along with Opera browser or something. I'll send this report also to some antivirus company. Yes, I was foolish, but I hope you will fix it.

When I click on a link from an email or document, Firefox opens but goes to my homepage and doesn't go to the link page. I've tried setting my home page to blank, changed the settings for opening a new tab or window, and the one for "switch to it immediately" but it doesn't seem to help. How do I fix this?

https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/actualites/A15610#titreChapitre_-5776306477855185115

There is an element with id "titreChapitre_-5776306477855185115" in the page (chapter "Personnes ayant un test de dépistage positif" which means "People who test positive to Covid", Chrome will scroll to this chapter (well, at least 60% of time it auto scrolls to the element) while Firefox will always display the top of the page.

Firefox is slightly better and more similar to Chrome on the english version for some reason : https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/actualites/A15610?lang=en#titreChapitre_-5634635573997558496

When typing in the URL search bar I'd like to see ONLY URLs I've visited previously, bookmarks and currently open tabs. If I want to search using a search engine, I'll happily type in the search engine bar. Instead, most of the dropdown candidates are search engine autocompletions, with just a few recommendations based on my search history. Why show any search engine autocompletions at all? It doesn't help me AT ALL but I frequently know there are many more than 3 possible completion candidates in my previous history - and yet I can't see them.

So some website didn't work for me and I pressed "forget" button thinking it only removes history from a particular website (no). That's it - EVERYTHING COLLAPSED, session is lost, all tabs gone. Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

Having issues with any tab that I open and navigate to a website that the bookmarks bar just disappears and I have to open an new tab that is not used just to get access to the bookmarks bar.

Not for sure why it collapses itself when actually browsing and was not for sure if there was a solution to fix this. I had searched online and could not find any solutions or anyone that has had the same issues.

I have attached screenshots of the difference between a new tab and a tab with a site opened

Help is appreciated, Thanks

I have Firefox installed on two PCs. I see the option to add "Recommended by Pocket" under Settings/Home, but on the other one I don't. Screen shots of both are attached. I have completely uninstalled, cleaned up all Firefox files and re-installed Firefox multiple times on the PC where I don't see the Pocket option but nothing changes. Also gone into about:config and tried making changes from there. I want the Pocket recommendations to show on the Firefox Home page for both PCs.

Thanks
