I have been using Firefox ver. 65.0 for yeas and i'm very happy with it. Except certain sites require me to update, such as Chase.com. I have read about some users saying that they were not happy after updating and wanted to switch back to their old version. 1. how would i be able to switch back to my current version if I find I don't like the most current version? 2. Will the user interface be much different for the current version and is there a way I could just view the current user interface before downloading/installing? 3. After switching to the current version, will my settings, auto loading tabs(for email,etc), pocket list of saved articles and other settings be transferred? Since I have never asked a question before, I have no idea where your response will be found. So i have included my email just in case it is not obvious where to find your response. [email removed from public] thank you very much for any help!!!

I have looked around for a download concerning "ad remover" similar to Norton and supposed Firefox had a free or cheaper one already? For example when following education videos on YouTube (w/o being a premium visitor) it's a blessing not to be interrupted constantly. I tested Norton, works fine but it's quite expensive.

I have searched for above at Mozilla, but get articles "ad blocker" and how to prevent users URL addresses from being saved when visiting a site and these are not the same if understanding right?

Please advice link to an "ad remover" at Firefox when visiting other websites because it saves hours every week. If Firefox don't have one, my proposal is that Firefox develops one, either for free or for a limited amount of monthly cost (say $0.5-1/month?). I'm pretty sure it would be a success.

Sorry if I've asked for something that already exists, in that case please advise where I can find it. I'd be glad to download and take advantage of it.

More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

As Title,

Whenever I try to go full screen and hover to the top of the browser, It originally showed all my tabs, but recently it has not been doing that. When I hover over and over, the tabs maybe appear 10% of the time, but whenever I click somewhere else other than the Tab Bar, it disappears.

I think this bug happened ever since I enabled "Hide bookmark toolbar". I have since reverted it back, but the error is still the same. Weird, since my tabs disappear since it has nothing to do with bookmarks.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise Edition 21H2 (Build 19044.1889). When I use Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection and Firefox is currently running, version 103.0.2 (64-bit), Firefox freezes. None of the tabs respond. Other apps are working fine, except for Firefox. There are no crash reports to post here. Appreciate any advice to eliminate this issue.

It seems Mozilla now things that forcing me to click through a "welcome tips wizard" dialog box is a good idea. Since I work in IT, I'm using browsers across dozens of endpoints in dozens of environments every day. To open Firefox and have to click Skip over and over and over because the wizard won't let me just skip the whole thing on one fell swoop, is a recipe for fatigue! I don't care about changing color schemes or signing into an account etc etc. I just care about using the browser to go where I need to go. Yet not even Escape works to get out of the captive experience. Please stop following in the footsteps of Microsoft who thinks they have a right to force every user into an experience. Please stop being like other apps that introduce new features and feel they have a right to force users to "see" them via UI popups that are in your face until you either click through them or click skip for every single one. If you really think I should care about these features, at least allow me to skip the whole process whenever I wish. Don't make me click Skip over and over and over. Maybe one day I will read about these new features that Mozilla things are so important, but even then I'll read it once on my own computer probably and then still be "forced" into this unpleasant experience on every other endpoint I remote onto for weeks and months into the future. Thanks a lot.
