Hello,

I have a profile I made changes on and installed desired addons. I use it as a template.

When starting firefox, I copy the template to a new directory and use this directory as a profile path used for firefox. It works ok but I see some glitches.

A first one is that at start time, I see access to some files and directories located in template's directory. A second one, is when I start a second instance of firefox, the zoom level specified in the template is not applied to second instance and the option in preferences is not visible in the second instance. Both are ok in the first instance. I have not this problem when running 2 profiles created by profile manager. And a third one, is that I suspect that when using the second instance, the browser cache(s), is/are not freed when closing the second instance. They are when closing the first one. I have to investigated more on this one.

The point that puzzles me the most is the second.

Does any one have an idea what's happening here and what I could do to correct those points ?

Thanks in advance K.

I am using firefox on a debian installation base: $ firefox-esr --version Mozilla Firefox 91.13.0esr $ uname -a Linux debian 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux $ These days web pages come with all kinds of cr@p; so, at times you need to just get all the links inside the page to parse/eyeball them. What I do is grab the "page source" and/or use "Link Gopher". I have been noticing lately that they don't work anymore. Why? The problem seems to relate to javascript generated pages. When you try to see the source all you see is some javascript one liner.

Of course, firefox must have a way to show the source since it shows to you the actual page unencrypted. Which settings in about:config should you change in order to be able to "go to the source" again? lbrtchx



edit: fixed some formatting issues

I was looking at my event log tracking down one issue when I noticed hundreds of audit failures (outbound connection blocked) in my event log.

Firefox is not even running. I've just started my computer. It's trying to make a connection to google @ 34.107.221.82.

Fortunately something is blocking the connection attempt, but why is Firefox making hundreds of connection attempts when I haven't even opened firefox? How do I stop it?

I looked in task scheduler and couldn't see anything there. Looked at group policy, couldn't see anything there.

FF91.13.0esr

A Client recently dumped their Windows server. They ran IIS and had an Intranet website. The website has been static for years and I have set up a method for the tech person there to propagate changes without having to visit each PC, should the need arise.

The browsers were all running NewTabHomepage so that when a new tab was opened the homepage from the website was displayed. They do not want an external website as their homepage as the internal one has links to a bunch of stuff they use all day.

When the homepage in Firefox is set to open a page via file:/// rather than http:// when a new tab is opened the homepage is not loaded. A blank page is displayed.

Is there a way around this?

I like to keep a copy of all my passwords, just in case. Maybe I get a new computer, or, maybe something gets corrupted or accidentally deleted, ... etc. I've been using computers for a long time and ... Stuff Happens.

I wish Firefox made things a little more user-friendly.

When exporting passwords, the default file name is just "logins". Sure, I can rename it to something more sensible, like "Firefox Passwords 2022-09-27", but, shouldn't Firefox automatically do that for me?

The only file format options are .csv and .xml, both of which are completely useless for the average person.

Sure, I can import the .csv file into Excel, and then spend a lot of time stripping out all the unnecessary stuff, but again, shouldn't Firefox do that for me? When I export passwords Firefox warns me that the file is readable by anyone, so, why not just export something a little more sensible and usable.

A plain text file where each line just consists of

URL     Username     Password

I'm a little disappointed that there doesn't seem to be any way to submit feature requests directly to Mozilla, but hopefully someone will see this and consider it.

I used Firefox Sync in order to fix a corrupted Firefox profile, and now want to delete the sync data from Mozilla's servers (as it's no longer needed). However, I would like to keep my account on Firefox Accounts. What's the best way to ensure this?

Approaches I think *might* work:

- Change my registered email address, delete my account, create a new account with the original email - Reset my password (causing sync data to be deleted)

The first one seems more thorough, but perhaps a little *too* thorough. :-) But the second is only implied to work, not stated outright. Thoughts?

When typing, the space bar appears to advance but when the next word is typed the space disappears and words flow together ! Such as: wordsflowtogether. I can then go back and insert the spaces but this is not a solution! The problem is occurring while commenting on yahoo page on Fox news. I believe this started after last update. Not happening in Safari.

What happens if I click sign out if I don't have access to the email where I can click sign out of and the email in the manage email account is a different one entirely. What email would I be signing out of and which email is synced with all my tabs and history? I don't want to lose access to all the saved options and sites and everything attached to my desktop browser but I don't have access to the first email listed.

How can I access certain sites I need to use that won't let me continue because my browser is not up to date when my browser gives me no option to update and the only newer one is probably the incomplete beta test version anyway

I use the Multi-Account Containers add-on, and I had about a dozen custom containers.

Earlier today, while investigating a potential browser bug, I disabled the Multi-Account Containers add-on to verify the bug is not caused by it. (It wasn't.)

Then I re-enabled the Multi-Account Containers add-on, only to find that my custom containers are gone. I was not expecting this :(

Is there a way to recover those custom containers, and related data such as rules for which sites should be opened in them?
