It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

Have the settings listed here been discontinued?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.urlbar.restrict.tag

I still have those entries in my prefs.js to specify my preferred keys. This used to work back in the day, but now my chosen keys are ignored, and only the built-in defaults seem to apply.

Have these settings been moved to different keys, or is it no longer possible to over-ride the defaults at all?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

How to remove a firefox account from a profile without deleting the account + mozilla login bug

I have created a new profile from a copy of an existing profile.

The old profile is synced using OldProfileSyncEmail@etc as the email.

I don't want to sync the new profile. I want to remove the account from the sync nag box on the new profile, but I want to keep the account for use with the old profile.

=====================

Mozilla login bug:

I use another email address as login to mozilla pages: EmailForFirefoxPages@etc. This login is in Firefox 'logins & passwords"., with a different password.

I don't want to use my sync emails (which should be PRIVATE.) for forums, addons, bug reporting etc!

When I try to login to mozilla pages, the login box prepopulates with OldProfileSyncEmail@etc.

It stays prepopulated after I click "use another account".

It does not offer the correct email as an alternative, even after I DELETE the pre-populated email. (MOSTLY - one time it did???)

When I manually type in EmailForFirefoxPages@etc and click continue, the password box is STILL prepopulated with the WRONG PASSWORD - for OldProfileSyncEmail@etc. Which is NOT the password in Logins and Passwords for EmailForFirefoxPages@etc.

=========================

ACTIONS TAKEN:

I deleted the OldProfileSyncEmail@ login from logins&passwords, now the moz login box prepopulates with the correct (only) login. (But if I do that on my synced accounts, the sync won't be able to log in!??).

The sync nag box is still telling me to reconnect to the deleted sync email.

===========================

ACTIONS WHICH CANNOT BE TAKEN:

Delete the account. (It is used by other profiles to sync.)

============================

QUESTIONS:

How do I fix the ff login box in my old profile where I CANNOT delete the login.

How do I get rid of the old profile's address in the sync nag in my new profile.

Just recently when I am on yahoo mail, I randomly get logged off. When I try to log back in, I have to change my password to succeed. I am running out of ideas for password as I have changed it dozens of times. This did not occur immediately after an update. Just out of curiosity, I did system restore to undo the last ff update, but still happened either way. I went thru deleting all cookies, stored passwords and cleared browser history. None of this helped. Virus scans showed negative. I have called att/yahoo tech support and they could not fix this. I have opened my mail in IE and do not have this problem using that browser. But come, I hate IE. So I have windows 7 professional. Not sure of all the pertinent system info needed but appreciate any suggestions.

This only seems to happen if firefox is not already open and the clicking of the link opens firefox.

I have a question regarding PWA support on Firefox desktop. I am not sure how to frame this correctly, but I hope I am able to list the problem statement.

Basically, I plan to migrate my existing mobile and desktop website to single PWA based responsive website. Right now, I have mobile website which is a PWA, and a desktop website. Goal is to have a single PWA based responsive website for both mobile and desktop platform. However, I want to make sure the proposed website will work with Firefox desktop. From what I could find Firefox doesn't support option to install PWA as an app with it's own shortcut as it is possible in Chrome. But I want to make sure it supports rest of the features of PWA, and website still works correctly in terms of UI and experience as in case when it is accessed from Chrome browser.

Appreciate a response on this. In case you require more clarity on the problem statement, do let me know.

Everytime I open sites like https://developers.google.com/maps and http://ruby-forum.com, and some other sites that I can't recall now, I get "Corrupted Content Error". The send.firefox.com even fails to load. I have to press "ctrl + shift + r" to reload the site, but when I am redirected to the sites (say after login), I can't press ctrl + shift + r.

Removing cache and cookies didn't help. Chromium loads the sites just fine.

When I start Firefox it makes upto 15 https:// connections to cloudfront.net and something else. I altered the about:config and did this as shown in another post, but to no avail browser.selfsupport.url. double-click it and change its value to a blank string Here is a sreen grab of the connections I get on start-up, sometimes it takes about 5 mins before I can use the internet. (I have almsot the slowest connection in the UK, at 0.03 MB/sec, 34kbps), so this would only slow down a fast connection for a matter of seconds. I live high in the mountains with no wi-fi and only an old copper phone line to carry my signal.

I am at a lose for words sort of. I went on line at the end of February early in the morning 3;30am say and I am getting ready to log into my facebook account and it is looking for me to prove my identity. I pick the right people, the right posts and it tells me that I am wrong and that I have to send in my ID. Now this is not the first time but before my ID was actually in my account. This time it is no ware to be seen zero response from Facebook, so I look into my log ins and it turns out that I was logged into my account in another city and the email for me to get back into my account was a fake link. It was a good think I take screen shots because if you look at my login information the city that had my account was not listed, the emails disappeared from my email account like it never happened. I also think they got access to my laptop as I had passwords in my account that were only these long numbers for website info and if you went there was nothing. I did delete these as there were about 6 of them. I am very security conscious so this is truly freaking me out. I can't contact Facebook they just don't care and they hae zero way for you to contact them. Thank you for listing to me.
