The pdf gets overwritten by the new text when it is scrolled down or up and the whole pdf becomes messy. I have attached an image showing the same. The terminal gets into the background of the pdf and any other application that is opened on the screen.

I recently posted a question in - as I thought - the Mozilla community/support forum. I don't exactly remember the link I went to, but since I am logged in to my browser with a Firefox account, I could opt to log in to that forum with it, I didn't need to type my password, just click the button to use my existing account. So far so good.

I got an answer via e-mail. The email contained no plain link back to the post or answer. It contained a big green button "Mark as solved" and a link "This doesn't solve my problem", graphically positioned as to make it quite analogous to the big green button.

I didn't want to quickly mark the answer as either one, I wanted to go there to reply.

In the answer, however, the person answering me included a link to another post. I hoped that, clicking on this one, would - first of all - be of interest, and - secondly - lead me back to the forum in a neutral way so that I could find my own post there via my profile. Again, I clicked on a button to use Mozilla to login. Now I seem to have a second profile, the two are obviously not the same. Also, the forums don't quite seem to be the same. Support Mozilla vs Connect Mozilla. Why are they handled differently, why didn't I get the option to login with my firefox-account, when Connect Mozilla even gets my email adress automatically from it?

So, I had to try one of the buttons, they have different link addresses. I obviously tried the one that said "This doesn't solve my problem", and it plainly led me back to the answer on the (correct) forum and opened the replyform, also showing a button again: "Solved" and "This doesn't solve my problem". Why isn't the link in the email just labelled as linking you back to the forum, like "View thread" or "Reply to thread".

In addition I did not easily understand how to vote for the suggested idea in the linked post. A community manager had posted the reply that the post is now idea-status and that it is open to "votes (aka kudos)". No link or button to do it. Some scrolling around led my eye to an answer in the post to have one kudo, so I understood it had something to do with the like-button. Scrolled up to the original post, which did not have the word kudo on its like button, just a number. Hovering over it I finally got to know that I could give kudos by pressing this button. I got confused since several answers had this button. It was just a like-button to me, not the special vote-button that only appears if a manager opens the vote. Why is the manager text not just: "Vote (aka 'leave kudos') by clicking the like-button, which is now enabled."

Firefox seemt to have made a huge error by "Firefox 128 sends data per default Data for Advert agencies.

16.7.2024

I read this German article:

Firefox 128 liefert per Default Daten für Werbetreibende

Mozilla lässt eine neue Technologie für "datenschutzfreundliche digitale Werbung" in den Firefox einziehen. Die Aktivierung erfolgt ohne Einwilligung der Nutzer.

Which means Firefox 128 Delivers per-default Data for Advert agencies. Mozilla allows a new technology for "Date protection friendly digit Advertising" on Firefox. The activation is without permission from the user.

This is not good at all. I am now thinking of rejecting Fierfoy and moving to Opera or similar. Why did Morzilla take this fatal step?

The system continues to tell me that my original email address is the primary address. That address has been hacked and I need to remove it and replace it. I am then told I need to add a secondary address before I can change. I go into the area where this is done and when I press add it says that the new address is already there. How do I get rid of the hacked address and replace it with the new one (which Mozilla does actually recognize!)?

Since the last update (was executed today in my case 16-07-2024), firefox has been very slow and freezing and crashing. Also, somehow it is the only browser that can't handle yahoo finance new charts and keeps freezing....so many issues in a short span of time, please check. I have tried other browsers and things seem to work fine there, so, it is not my computer or OS.

I have Firefox on 2 computers. One is for my wife. On her computer Firefox defaults to all my settings, including passwords and logins. When she tries to log into her accounts, like CC and banking, everything defaults back to my settings.

How can I set up Firefox on her computer with only her settings?

I have been a Foxfire user for many years, but lately a number of issues are making me go to Chrome more and more often. Images are missing on many pages after page 1. Pages with images are very slow to load, even though the images are not being displayed. Some commercial websites won't allow me to access them at all (Eddie Bauer is an example,) often displaying an "Access denied" message.

Also, I am forced to log in almost every time I access sites (Yahoo mail and Amazon are examples that I access daily.) With 2-factor ID, this is a big issue because my phone is usually at the other end of the house.

These things don't happen with Chrome. Is there a way to fix them in Firefox?

Webpages don't open on Firefox and a link is clicked (for example, a link in an email). This problem does not happen when using another browser. I followed the advice given to someone who had the same problem. Switching to "No proxy" as suggested did not correct the problem. The advice was from zeroknight and is pasted below: zeroknight 12/1/23, 1:28 AM more options The browser settings are in the menu that looks like three horizontal bars (≡). From there, go into Connection Settings and change "Use system proxy settings" to "No proxy".
