Hi there, I'm hoping someone can help with this. I recently signed into a shared computer with my personal Firefox account, and it automatically imported all my history, my browser extensions, and bookmarks, including personal/secure information that I wouldn't want on a shared computer. I tried signing out and deleting the sites and login information, even going so far as to completely delete all of my browsing history and cookies and signing in with another account, but all the supposedly deleted history and logins and extensions were then transferred to this second account. I have deleted all my data, even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, and all the data from my personal account keeps haunting me as suggestions when I type in the task bar or suggested usernames when I log in to websites. How can I actually delete this information so it's not on a shared computer? Thank you!

I want to set a timeout for the master password. It's clearly a security threat to leave passwords unencrypted. It bothers me more than being prompted for the master password.

I remember we used to be able to set the timeout and it's a pain to go and logout the software security device after logging in to the one thing that needs the master password.

The behavior of FireFox saving PDF files has changed. I am using WIN10, FireFox 98.0.1 and have it setup to use windows default application and always ask where to save for PDFs.

BEFORE the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. After clicking save I would be asked, where to save. I select the location to save the PDF. Then after this, subsequent PDFs downloaded would be saved to the last saved location. This process would repeat for a new website PDF load and save. This is the behavior I want now.

NOW with the problem: The PDF opens in Acrobat Pro IX. 1. Immediately, after a reboot, the save icon on Adobe is grayed out. I select save as and point to the desired directory. 2. For any subsequent PDF opened, the Adobe save icon is available. Files are saved to the desktop.

Please note I believe I once did get a popup asking where to save and I know I selected desktop.  Since that selection I am no longer asked where to save.

Please note I have looked and tried some of the suggestions at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cant-download-or-save-files#w_choose-a-different-download-folder

but some of this advice needs to be updated for the new FireFox version--ex no JSON file is found at the file location covered in the advice.

I believe this issue started after the last FireFox update. Please help me restore behavior listed above under “BEFORE the problem”. Thanks.

I am NOT a fan of this relatively new Full-screen mode at all unless I initiate it when watching a movie or in very few other instances. I don't like any device second-guessing or anticipating what I need to do and when or if it needs to do this for me. It has caused me more problems than it has helped, and injected some frustrating delays getting what I want done due to the added need and interruption of being paused to constantly press F11 again and again. It's not second nature and at this point, I don't think it will be. I don't need or want this feature and I don't understand this new world where features have to be nailed down and locked now with the "like it or lump it" mentality without option to remove or disabled this? (Sorry, I don't like MS Edge either, and not only for this reason!) I would be happy to go back to a previous version of Firefox that is without this feature, if this is the only answer. I'm hoping it is not?

There was a previous very brief post on here that directed users to go to about:config and set full-screen-api.enabled to false in order to disable this feature, but no one positively confirmed that it worked and the thread was closed. This doesn't appear to be working for me with the most current version of Firefox.

Is there someone who can help give me peace in my life again by showing me how to disable this permanently and forever? I know about F11 and don't ever want to have to press it again! I would appreciate any help, and you might even make my Christmas list if it works?

Thanks!

Hi

Usually when I like an article and don't have time to read it, I'll save it for later to read it on my Kindle as plain text.

In FireFox, I'll use the F9 key to Toggle The Reader View to view it in the reader mode, then save the page as text by doing ctrl+s, as I don't need the html version or the images or extra stuff that comes with the article.

However, after the page is saved as text, getpocket.com dumps a lot of unnecessary garbage into the beginning(27 lines) & end(18 lines) of the page, even if I don't have a pocket account nor logged in as listed below.

Is there a way to prevent FF from saving the annoying Pocket self-promo garbage besides saving each page manually and tediously?

Thanks

Okay that was way longer than I expected short of someone searching the headline their self, but it's the best way to show just exactly what I am seeing.

This started happening a couple of days ago and I do know there have been recent updates to the browser that might have something to do with it.

It's apparently a common, or known, issue, and there is a fix for it for Chrome, but I can find nothing similar for Firefox except some crazy command prompt that I'm not even going to try to attempt,

I've spoken to my IPS twice this week already and everything is good. I don't have any real issue with any other sites and seem to be able to surf normally.

I had thought it was a Youtube issue, maybe it is, but it's obviously an issue people have had before and it seemed to be a network issue in the browser, or as much as I got out of the Chrome fix video.

If anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it. If it continues, then I suppose I will have to switch to using Chrome, or only use Chrome for Youtube, or quit Youtube all together.

But the error is consistent, annoying & frustrating when I have to reload (which doesn't seem to help) or switch to another tab (which dosn't always help) just to watch videos.

Thank you.

LibreOffice error: LibreOffice requires a 64-bit Java runtime environment (JRE) to perform this task. Please install a JRE and restart LibreOffice. https://hub.libreoffice.org/InstallJava/?LOlocale=en-US

I found nothing in FF extensions add-ons to facilitate this program/app. FF won't work with JAVA files but they provided no alternative. LibreOffice is the only free Office-like program/app. that is currently up and working today that I can find on any list I've pulled via browser on the first page or two.

It is so confusing to go to Edge or Chrome to use it - and hard to move things from FF over to Edge to get to LibreOffice - can't follow what I'm doing that way. I want to use FF. I feel safer there.

I don't trust downloading from random sites. Bait and switch for files. Malware. If there are is a trust-worthing d/l workaround pls tell me. I;m not up on them - not in the loop.

I need assistive technology really - this is just a start for me to get organized. You can give me advise on what keeps you swift and organized if you can too. Appreciate that much too. Thanks for any help.
