All of my saved logins are gone without a trace from all of my devices. I haven't added any new device and haven't changed sync settings recently, haven't even added any new plugins. They were all present a day or two ago and I noticed something was wrong when firefox stopped autofilling the login data. is there a way to check what's going on and what caused this? and also how to I get them back?

Every single time I open Firefox, I'm presented with this annoying reminder that tells me to update Firefox. Problem is, I manually installed Firefox into an Ubuntu folder, and it doesn't get auto-updated. I'm perfectly capable of downloading the latest version and replacing the old version WHEN I CHOOSE TO. I don't need Firefox reminding me about it every single goddamn time I open the browser. A reminder every month or every 40 days would have still been tolerable. But everytime I open the browser??!!! Who takes these kind of decisions? Please don't make a user interface so annoying!!!

Google won't let me sign in and here is what they say: "The browser you're using doesn't support JavaScript, or has JavaScript turned off.

To keep your Google Account secure, try signing in on a browser that has JavaScript turned on."

I have recently updated to the latest version of Firefox and seemed to have no problem yesterday. What do I do now?

I am using a number of extensions that were unexpectedly disabled when Firefox decided to update itself. The most important that "could not be verified for use in Firefox Developer Edition and has been disabled" is Mult-account containers. This is the second time I will have lost my data if I can't do so.

This being the second time I have to ask: Is this the fault of running "Developer Edition" and should I switch to normal FF at this point? Are containers not ready for prime time? Clearly something is wrong if I can loose all of my (container) data twice in a week.

Odd thing here, some (not all) videos on Twitter don't play. I get the first frame with the blue play button, but when I click it, it goes black with no sound. Some videos work, particularly the longer ones. Animated GIFS do not work.

I have tried nearly everything I found on the internet: new profile, clearing cookies/cache, changing about:config settings, using safe mode: nothing worked. Chrome does not play also, but it does not show a black screen, it freezes in the first frame (i.e, the blue play button simply vanishes).

I also have tried to access the video URL directly, it also does not play. But if I download the video and play it locally with VLC, it DOES play. Funny thing, this.

Example tweet: https://twitter.com/cmerigo/status/1147114264429322240

I am currently suspecting that it's a codec problem in the browsers. I went to html5test.com, it says that my Firefox does not support MPEG-4 ASP and H.265. But in the YouTube HTML5 page (https://www.youtube.com/html5) all checkboxes are marked.

So, I'm out of ideas. Please help.

How can I change the sizes of fonts and icons in the Menu and Toolbars?

I'm using Firefox 67.0 under MX Linux. My monitor is 25" with a resolution of 1920x1200. With this resolution, the text and icons in Firefox Menu and Toolbars are tiny and almost impossible to read. The Thunderbird add-on Theme and Font Size Changer works reasonably well for Thunderbird, so is there a corresponding add-on for Firefox?

I know that Firefox is largely developed by people who are volunteers, but it seems that a tool, as part of the basic Firefox program, should be available to make these changes without installing add-ons or modifying the code manually. Almost everyone needs to be able to tweak these things at one time or another.

The "Warn when closing multiple tabs" option (which, by the way, is hidden for some reason until you modify its value via about:config) doesn't even do anything. You could close like 10 tabs and Firefox will do it without warning you. Same with the "Close other tabs/tabs to the right" options.

As above. FF installed the update despite the checked option to NOT install automatically. NO "old firefox" folder was created-anywhere. No other profile is present that has the old data. My adult daughter's grad school laptop. Years of bookmarks, logins and I do not know what all ARE GONE!! I allowed FF to download but NOT INSTALL-since it was not my machine and I wanted to avert any disaster (I, in fact, looked at the options first, to make sure) NOW WHAT?? Is that is a bug?? Why was there no "old FF" created? Why did it install regardless of instructions to the contrary. Is there some other place to look? She does not seem to have any automatic backups for FF profiles.

I get this every time when starting Firefox (currently 67.0.4) after running a cleanup utility such as Privazer or Glary Disk Cleaner. I assume it is deleting something that Firefox is looking for and that generates the error. Does anyone know what missing file is causing that error and how to remedy the problem. Either by telling the utilities not to delete that file or telling Firefox not to care if it is deleted.

Thanks
