Please continue here: [/questions/997927]

I've been using firefox for many years. It's by far my favorite browser. I love everything about it.. but the spellcheck. Firefox's spellcheck is so terrible is to the point of being a joke.

For example, in this post I'm using the work "spellcheck" but firefox is underlining it as spelled incorrectly. My options to replace it are "spell check" "spell-check" or "spellchecker"

If "spellchecker" is a word, how on earth can "spellcheck" not be? Yes, I could add it to the dictionary, but I'd need to add a large portion of the english language to get the dictionary fixed! It's that terrible. And while I'm at it, "ENGLISH" isn't in the dictionary unless its capitalized, which isn't correct because English has an entirely different meaning than english! I have a google table open constantly so that while I'm making posts I can jump over to google to check for the correct spelling of works that firefox can't recognize.

Yes, I could replace the dictionary. But why should I need to? Shouldn't one of the most popular browsers in the world default to a dictionary that actually has something of the same quality as far less popular browsers? A new dictionary wouldn't solve the most basic problem Firefox has which seems to be its complete inability to do decent pattern recognition. When you do spell a word incorrectly, it rarely has options that are even remotely related to what you're trying to spell. Again I have to jump over to google search to find the correct spelling.

Got hijacked by a malware program. Every time I start firefox it goes to qto8.com page instead of my homepage. I went to tools/options/ reset my homepage and nothing. I removed it from the search box by going to manage search engines. I went to the control panel and it doesn't show up there and it doesn't show up when I search for it as a file. I tried to create several different restore points and nothing.

Since there is no way, of creating a poll, please all that want the old GUI back, post "me too". The reason behind it is, that people should not be forced to create a social media account to do so and that this is the only way developers get a feeling of what is wanted.

This is not meant as a demand towards the developers, it is just a means of evaluation to help considering decisions.

Why, do I do this? Because, "classic theme restorer" add on isn't really reversing it.

Others that had that problem and a crippled solution: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1018434?esab=a&as=aaq https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1032824?esab=a&as=aaq solution: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-make-new-firefox-look-like-old-firefox

Someone did put it down very nice elsewhere: "it is a shame that people actually HAVE to create an addon for it".

Please continue here: [/questions/975289]

I'm currently running v24 in Windows 7 Pro x64.

Since one of this year's updates (21? 22? 23?), several web sites that I've been visiting weekly or monthly (to pay bills, etc.) for years no longer work smoothly. Clicking on links/buttons that execute actions (e.g., "Submit", "Next", etc.) don't go directly to the desired page. Instead I get a page with a text message that's something like "This page has moved. Click here for new location." (And no, they're not the "redirecting in 10 seconds" kind of messages.) I can still get to where I need to go by clicking that second link, but all those extra clicks in the past 2-3 months are getting on my nerves.

Needless to say, this is really annoying. Since I've not added any new add-ons in many moons, my suspicion is that Mozilla changed a default setting somewhere in a recent update (from "Off" to "On" or "True" to "False" or vice versa). Anyone have some insight into how I can eliminate this annoyance?
