Firefox Browser uprated to 92.0 today. Previously whilst browsing Ad's were showing; today I have no Ad's displayed but have not enabled an Ad Blocker on Firefox. A site I use extensively cannot now be properly viewed; I get a message to turn off Ad Blocker. I have set Enhanced Tracking Protection to 'Off' but am still unable to obtain full functionality, I am using standard Firefox Privacy settings otherwise. I am able to browse the site properly using MS Edge. I have deliberately refrained from using any AD Blocking on my part so as to ensure the site in question can be properly viewed. The only Firefox extension being used is Kaspersky Protection; I get the turn off Ad Blocker message both when Kaspersky Protection is on or off.

I thought Pocket's articles were supposed to be non-commercial, if "Sponsored stories" is turned off in the settings?

And yet Pocket has just recommended a highly commercial link that's far removed from a genuine article, and reads exactly like an advert. (https://www.inverse.com/entertainment/leaving-netflix-september-2021-star-trek-enterprise)

This "article" basically just forcibly tells the reader "YOU NEED TO" sign up to the premium video website "Netflix", without any explanation of why. Patently, it was funded by whatever company owns Netflicks.

The article also makes the outrageous claim that the TV show in question is "the most controversial sci-fi show on Netflix", but completely fails to back this up with facts, or any explanation at all. It's clearly just marketing rhetoric to generate interest in the show, because the show in question (which is 20 years old) was notoriously bland, isn't even remotely controversial, no one is talking about it, and there is absolutely no logical reason to re-watch it right now.

The article also tries to give the impression that the only way to watch this 20-year-old TV show is to sign up to the premium website Netflicks and watch it on a computer screen - which is absurd given that the show is constantly syndicated on TV around the world, and readily available on all home formats including DVD and Blu-ray.

I would like to know how I can complain about this to Mozilla, because it isn't right at all. If by some chance, this article was non-commercial, it would be a truly terrible, dishonest, badly-written article which completely lacked a point or purpose. But it's so obviously commercial.

I found countless other disingenuous "articles" on that site, all doing a similar thing with other TV shows—driving commerce to Netflicks under the pretense of a false sense of urgency. Mozilla should have nothing to do with garbage like this.

Hi,

I've recently moved PCs and I'm trying to import all my previous bookmarks to the new PC. The old PC was wiped completely to re-use the components in the new PC, however it was fully backed-up.

Previous to re-formatting everything, I made a Firefox account for easy bookmark transfer.

When I logged into the Firefox account on the new PC, no bookmarks synced. However, website history did sync.

In 'Settings > Sync > Manage Account', scrolling to the bottom of the page displays the name of my old PC, so Firefox does know that it exists. If all my bookmarks are stored in the cloud and not on my own hardware, why aren't they syncing?

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!

I have a certain add-in installed that Firefox sometimes says is "slowing things down" and recommends deactivating. Thing is, it's my password manager, so I absolutely never want to deactivate it, and am quite okay if it occasionally slows things down, and would like to tell Firefox to never suggest turning off this particular add-in, while still leaving that feature on for other add-ins I might care less about. Is there anyway off adding it to an "ignore it if this add-in slows things down a bit" list?

Hi.

I attach a photo that illustrates the huge difference in the way colours are rendered by Firefox. On the left, an iPad Air 4th Gen (15.01) and on the right a MacBook Air M1 (11.6). One would question if it was the same image. If I flip to Safari on iPadOS, it renders ~the same colour as Firefox on my M1. If I then save the image to "Photos" from either Firefox on MacOS or iPadOS and Safari, I get exactly the same colour rendering for all the images saved.

So it looks like Firefox is getting it badly wrong on iPadOS (the same with iOS 15.01) when it presents its colours. It doesn't matter if I'm in Dark or Light mode. I'm using Verion 92

As a keen fan of Mozilla, I prefer using Firfox as my default browser, but if there are these colour issues I'm a bit wary of replacing Safari on my iPad!

Thanks Tom

A few days ago, a weird problem arose with "Take Screenshot" function.

The resulting image includes area designated PLUS a border on the right edge AND on the bottom edge. Note: width of side border is wider than border on the bottom is tall. This is difficult to tell in a file image because it seem to be transparent and assumes the color of background. Confusing, I know, so I have included a composite image image of result of "Save Image As..." on top, and the "Take Screenshot" added to the bottom. Prior to a few days ago, the bottom image would not have the added borders and therefore the colored part of the image would be the same width as the "Save Image As..." and extend to bottom of the image.

Note: it doesn't matter whether I download to file or cut and paste the image. The same thing happens if I "Save Full Image". And, yes, I know I need to upgrade to latest version, but this issue needs investigation...

TIA, KBo
