Ok guys, first I've been using this browser since it was called Netscape 1.0.

This is quite some time ago, right? But now level of suffering has become too high. I'm not writing 10 finger system. I've not studied computer science. (However a MINT subject.)

Nowadays at least weekly a website crashes, because I'm typing some unknown (to me) key combination, which causes the site to reload, Firefox to close, a new tab to be replaced, or whatsoever bullshit. And no way to switch off short cuts (at least as far as I have found out).

Even to get to this page was an odyssey. First set up an account, the confirmation code not accepted, a resend request omitted, finally some old password worked. On the way restart browser, as accidentially again I typed some key sequence, which killed the browser task....

I'll switch to edge or chrome, or whatsoever, because I'm really fed up. After over 25 years. Is that, what you wanted? The kids of 25 or below don't care about Mozilla! They even don't ask a single question about their browser (on Android - guess, what they use...). I know about of this, as I've got two of those here at home.

I'm not asking for help, since this already beyond scope. This is a farewell post. My mails are managed by Pegasus ever since and I'll return to Opera now, despite it is the Webkit engine. Netflix runs smoothly. Firefox and Netflix is a neverending vexation. I've been using Opera as well for over 20 years. They did a better job.

It's bitter, but for me, it's the truth....

How do I get rid of the extremely annoying and useless "Other Bookmarks" folder which I NEVER use? This forum is misleading because it says only 3 people have this problem. I'm sure there are many thousands but it is almost impossible to comment or reply. It was a major puzzle for me to get this far. Firefox should to make a simple list of bookmarks available, when you have the Bookmarks symbol on the toolbar. It should be the default instead of hiding them in "other folders". If someone wants to make it more complex they easily can add folders. The default now is too complex and difficult to change. Every time I need to add the Firefox browser to a new operating system I need to do extensive research and fiddling just to simplify because I cannot remember the gymnastics I had to go through the last time.This time it made me so exasperated I nearly gave up went to Edge.

Hi there

since a few weeks it happens daily that by accident I transfer a tab into a new firefox window obviously by moving/clicking the mouse quickly in a way that leads to this new window. then I need to copy the email adress, close the new window and make in the original window again a new tab and paste it there and place it on the right spot. not really handy... not sure what changed in firefox since this did not happen in the past. did there change sth or how better said how can I avoid that this is happening, can I lock tabs that they will not get a new window. does someone know this problem? Thanks Andy

I have used Firefox for many years but it recently has been taken over by Via Health and Google. I am unable to delete the ads and when I search for a topic, Google returns several questions (pertinent to the search topic) instead of finding the web site. Its an endless loop of question. Please advise how to delete via health ads and google unusual behavior. I have had to switch to MS edge to conduct any search.

Yesterday I was trying to access My Habitat at Habitat for Humanities website. I spent almost two hours trying to connect, 1 1/2 hours on the phone with Habitat Tech Support. Ultimately, they told me to I had to use another browser. I had Microsoft Edge that came with my Windows 10, so we used that and I was able to connect. Another problem I have with Thunderbird is that since Windows 10 was installed, neither Adobe or Excel will go to Thunderbird if I want to email a file. I have a work around, but it is really annoying.

I use last version of Firefox, I didn't install anything regarding Bing search system, no add-ons, no search system in options - I always use Yandex. Still, each time when I am highlighting any text with my mouse, and click on the button called "Search in Yandex", it drops me to bing website. What on earth is going on? Does someone else encounter this problem and knows how to fix that? Thanks.
