Would be nice if someone from Mozilla could build this into the browser, so users can easily change their Time Zone.

( Timezone Difference: The time zone of your browser is UTC while your request IP location timezone is different. )

Currently have privacy.resistFingerprinting on which is giving website the UTC time zone. How do I change this without disabling the setting.

Can I go into About:Config and add a new timezone?? that the Javascript request will find.

I can no longer log-in to sites that require Usersname and Password on my Mac. But I have no trouble using my iPhone to log-in using the ios Firefox and Firefox Focus. I tried clearing the history on my Mac and still no success. The error message I keep getting is "Could not process login". I know my username and password by heart and have had problem logging in before. Just recently in January 2023. I kept trying until I got locked-out. Please advise.

Hello, I've noticed a change since the last update and don't understand why?

When opening the bookmarks tab I would get the drop down of a long list of links I have saved. I sometimes bunch them into groups so when looking down the long list, I can see the link I want better when more than one are from the same website.

But my issue is that when I went through the list and found that group of links, I could click onto one to open the page. In the past before the update I could click on the bookmarks drop down again, and still see the same area of links I had just clicked on.

Now when the bookmarks drop down closes it defaults to the top of the list and I need to scan down to find the links I was looking at again. Why? Yes when I closed the browser off and reopened it the bookmarks list would start at the top again. But if left opened I could click on the bookmarks tab and it would open to the same link area I clicked onto last.

Is there a way in settings I can reverse this annoying, unnecessary change.

A word to the Firefox workers that like changing things for no reason. I use Firefox because I like the things your browser has that the others don't. Keep taking the little things away that people like, which you seem to keep doing, then my favourite browser will just become "The same old s#*@" like all the others.

I enjoy Firefox, however I've recently realized that hackers are using the Firefox browser to attack and enter my system, despite a firewall and VPN and even in private browser. I've been forced to cease use of the Firefox browser and decided to bring this to your attention after realizing that this surely will become widespread if not already. Is Firefox aware of such attacks and if so what are you doing about it and when do you think I will be able to safely use your browser again? Also I'm open to explore any suggested setting that may help with the security of your browser. Thanks.

Several websites (not sure it's website-related) are displaying some (or a lot) of unreadable text. If I copy the text and then paste it into a page in a text program, it all reads fine. What could be causing this, and how do I fix it? (Screen shot is attached.)

I am not ultra-technical so please make response clear.

Currently using Firefox Nightly version 111.0a1 for Android now when trying to open a link in another app it always shows a popup to confirm.

This was not present in previous releases and I don't know if there is a way to prevent this popup as it makes it uncomfortable. Is there an option I may be missing to disable this feature? If not, could an option like this be introduced?

Thanks and regards

I never seemed to have a problem with my Mozilla Thunderbird but shortly after the last Mozilla Firefox update my inbound email thru Mozilla Thunderbird come into my inbound email box as DRAFT Messages. this is a big problem because I can't reply and or forward because there is no (((send))) showing up anywhere. Nobody seems to know how to solve this problem so it must be a first. My wife is on the same Home network as I and she has no problem like mine. I hate to reinstall Thunderbird because I don't know if it would interfere with all here computer info especially with her Thunderbird which seem to be OK (( No inbound Draft email Messages )). I use cox as my IP and mail coming into their email does not have a inbound draft problem, nor does AOL or GMail just Mozilla Thunderbird.

Until recently my browser accessed all the sites I have used for years and now I cannot access them. As an example the message I receive is "You don't have permission to access "http://booking.jetstar.com/au/en/booking/select-flights" on this server".

Reference #18.62052017.1660274157.1f6107dd Other sites like my banking site I can access freely on Edge but cannot on Firefox. No error message in that case, just says error try again. All this started after I loaded Norton. I have had them look at the system, and they have, but also point out that it is not them as I can access the site from Edge. I have looked at the help page and their are thousands of people with the same query but no fixes! As a long term supporter of Firefox I am disappointed that I now have to use Edge to do most of my business. HELP

I had to add Javascript because one of my accounts need Javascript to open. After installing Javascript and allowing for all to be 'true', I still get this message when I try to open a 'show blocked content' in my email.

"The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (javascript) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address."

I never had any problem before installing Javascript. Thanks for any solutions.
