Recently returned to Firefox after using Brave for around 6 months.

I have a pinned tab with my Gmail inbox (logged in and active). My Preferences are configured like this:

  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Enabled
  • Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed: Manage exceptions: "https://mail.google.com" & "http://mail.google.com"
  • History: Firefox will "Remember history"

(See attached screenshot)

With my Gmail tab active, when I close Firefox and reopen I expect my Gmail tab to be active but I have to login again everytime. When I used Firefox previously (before my Brave stint) I know that I managed to successfully configure Firefox to allow this. Any help would be appreciated.

PS. I do not have the Multi-Account Containers add-on active.

I am using a newish FF profile for my usual web browsing and I also have another FF profile (from an older computer) which I only use for one purpose and that is to look at my recently deceased partner's facebook (FB).

My issue is, I accidentally deleted my partner's FB account from the FB log on page and now have no access to that account. I was hoping by restoring my "other" FF profile I could restore access via cookies etc.

Is there any way i can do this??

I'm using Firefox 95.0 64-bit on a Windows 10 computer. The only add-on I've installed is Firefox Color.

Twice in the last week while I've been using Firefox, after it's been working normally, suddenly any clicked link opens in a new window instead of in the same tab as it should. (Note: I have "Open links in tabs instead of new windows" selected in Settings, but it shouldn't apply because I wasn't holding down the Ctrl key when I clicked.)

I quit the browser and when I started it again, it would only open in Safe mode, with a dialog box that included the option Open and Restore. The first time this problem happened I selected Restore, but I still had the problem.

I fixed the problem by downloading and running the FIrefox installer. This solution has worked both times. But I'm concerned that the problem has recurred. What might be causing it? How do I prevent it from happening again?

I checked even in the mozilla "about:Config" web site, after a few lenghty readings, but still no answer, I re-downloaded nightly yesterday, I just give up, the hover color is white and the font is grey throughout different web sites. :( Even on the tabs on fire fox nightly. I am just wondering about moving to the plain firefox to see if that problem presists. Anyone can bail me out on my tired 42 years old eyes?!

A site that my company must use daily and frequently for work routinely stops working for everyone who uses Firefox and we get "DOMException: The quota has been exceeded" errors in the console.

Closing and relaunching Firefox usually resolves this temporarily.

I have tried adjusting dom.storage.default_quota but even at hundreds of MB I still sometimes get the error.

The site vendor seems stumped and after weeks back and forth with development are now telling me to use Chrome :( Other Firefox users have been making noise on their product forums but we haven't seen any solutions yet.

I see some bugs in Bugzilla from about a year ago that seem related but it doesn't seem like they are actively being worked. Will there be a long term solution to this?

A recent breach might explain why I have about 600+ spam emails this month. Plus an unusual number missed by Gmail's usually pretty good filter.

The main problem is with Gravatar (www.gravatar.com), somehow associated with WordPress.com. ?? It doesn't seem to allow changes to either email address or password, unless I overlooked something... Options available are to Hide and/or Close the account, and I did both. Trying to sign in again still shows my email addy, so I'm not sure that it has been resolved quite yet. Oh and.. There I can change the email address, but there's no point in being spammed all over again from a different direction.

Less of a problem is the 500px site. Some nice photographs in there, but I haven't visited in years (probably). My account there has been deactivated, in the meantime, and, judging by the amount of spam until the last month or so, I'd guess that one is resolved. And, btw.. I do use unique passwords.

I'm actually very grateful for this service. I'm just not sure I managed to fix either breach. The other thing is that Gmail places the notifications under Promotions tab instead of Primary or Updates tabs. Not sure what I can do to fix that....

Many Thanks,

Colin.

P.S. Please make it easier to find how to EDIT posts.

ATTENTION: All Firefox Employees/Volunteers/Big Shots/ Anyone who knows what they are doing!

I can see why so many of your clients are leaving FF and you're begging for donations. I will be the next one if someone doesn't help me. AND DO NO respond to me with your computer IT LINGO. I am NOT AN IT person, I don't understand most of your ever-so-helpful (NOT) articles. Speak to me as though I know NOTHING about computers, even though I have used them for 40 years. MOZILLA you need to learn then teach your volunteers how to access my computer walk me through all of the problems I continue to have. I DID DOWNLOAD the latest v. 95, however, yesterday I downloaded a file and suddenly my OLD FF PAGE showed up and that is where the download went. HOW does that happen? Trying to get help is another anxiety-ridden experience. This is the 3rd page I've been on to get SOMEONE'S ATTENTION! I, personally, haven't found FireFox to be user-friendly as so many others seem to feel. AND, if you start using BING, I will be gone, NO if, ands, or buts. Bing is a piece of crap! I've tried numerous times to get it off MS Edge only for it to appear again. MS may think it's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but it isn't, even their format is UGLY!

I thought I finally got the hang of TABS...open tab, select website or whatever you want to open, then you don't lose all the other TABS that are open. HOWEVER, when one is moving along at lightning speed and happens to forget to open a TAB, that's when I want to SCREAM at the top of my lungs because now the other tab I opened is GONE! I'm sure I must be doing something WRONG, NO DOUBT, then teach me how to do it RIGHT!

NO MORE WRITTEN ARTICLES, THEY ARE A WASTE OF MY TIME! You may think you've written them in the clearest possible way, but you HAVEN'T. Again, if your audience is for IT people then MAYBE, just maybe they might understand what you've written, but I DO NOT!

That is the SINGLE MOST ANNOYING habit that every company has. SPEAKING IN COMPUTEREZE. I have worked in the medical field for many years, and the medical field has it's own terminology, words, diagnoses, codes, etc. and if I were to somehow use these words when messaging you, you would be CLUELESS! AND you wouldn't even bother to figure out what I'm asking or how to respond. Specific fields in this country have their own language. My husband worked in Aerospace for years and when he would describe to me what he was working on, it was Greek to me. The list goes on and on.

WELL, that's what you do now! You can pat yourselves on the back for all of your brilliant directional articles, but many of us out here in the real world are not patting you on the back.

Get your stuff together, take this email seriously, and perhaps you won't keep losing customers.

YOU NEED A SPECIFIC LOG-IN PAGE. When I open Firefox and go to the 3 bars I HAVE TO THINK I AM LOGGED IN. There is my Email address and if I click on that account I have many options. Two of which are manage account with my email address again, and SIGN OUT. I have to be signed in to sign OUT, right? AND if I have the correct version there should be NO REASON to EVER SEE my OLD FF home page, RIGHT? Then, why do I? It is great that you are trying to make your browser the safest browser on the market, but if people CAN NOT get legitimate answers in language understood by ALL, no computereze, then WHAT IS THE POINT?

And so much for the SCREENSHOT link. How does that work. I have the link on my Toolbar and it states, "Take a Screenshot" and that's what I did, because I wanted to show you some pages. BUT where did the screenshot go??? I looked through BROWSE, couldn't find it there in my files.

DO NOT make educated guesses, because that is what you do now. GUESS!! I guarantee that your educated guesses are WRONG!

Most Sincerely, Rhonda Caywood

I've been using Elijah Lopez's Matte Black (Red) theme for months. Recently, I think because I added the ClearURLs extension or some other change, certain websites enter some sort of "dark mode" when accessed.

Websites that do this include Twitter, an independent blog, and Youtube.

The website appears normally with the default light theme enabled. In the second photo, the website appears in the "dark mode" with the black Firefox theme enabled.

I have deleted cookies and cache, reinstalled Firefox, and reinstalled Extensions. I think this problem only occurs with dark themes, and nothing else. The moment I change to dark theme, the problem comes back. It is strange because the dark theme was working just fine for months until recently.

How can I keep the dark theme, preferably the same Elijah Lopez's dark theme, while using websites normally and not in this weird "dark theme" style adaptation?

Hi, I have got an issue concerning switching tabs. Thus, here is the thing: I work with multiple tabs, and if I open a new tab (Firefox home), start typing and when you have to switch tabs by ctrl+tab so you do it, a text in a new tab text always will be selected. Seems like no problem, however, If I accidentally press keys (except for arrow keys), all search text will disappear right away. Arrow keys only can move a cursor. Therefore, it is just annoying because you always wanna press arrow keys.

Sorry for my English but I hope you got it rightly.
