I guess, it's one of the most asked question. How can i move my profile and the cache location..... and most importand: Why is it not a nativ option in the preference? It's all about speed and security. I use uptodate betaversions on a mac. But that second part of my question is related to pc and mac.

Btw: I know about the cache. Adding the "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" as a string and adding my location. But i don't know about a about:config setting to move my Profile too.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I had to restore my computer. I downloaded Firefox and was logging in. I was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account using the email I knew was the right one to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. I was told I'd be sent an email. No.

A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them? I really need the bookmarks. And why would they disappear if the password wasn't changed?

I hope I missed something - like a created a second account without realizing it. Thanks for your help.

Hello, Sometime between Friday and today (Monday) Firefox has "hijacked" all of my pdf documents. I didn't ask for this and don't what this. I did find the setting that controls how Firefox handles downloads, it was set for open in Firefox, I switched to back always ask and restarted my laptop. All my existing files are still saved as Firefox HTML Documents. Additionally, when printing from the web files are still saving/printing as the Firefox HTML docs. How can I fix this?

Thank You, Kathy

I want to change text encoding so it defaults to Unicode. If I use the [alt] key then the View tab I can change it from Western but it reverts back after closing the page. Sometimes that does not work because the Text Encoding option in the View tab is greyed out. The About Firefox window says I am up to date with 83.0 (64bit).

Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

Firefox 83 changed how the search engine options work: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

I personally use the old behavior (submit immediately after clicking the option) much more often than I need to see the search suggestion. Is there an option to make the old behavior the default without pressing shift?

Thanks!

Is there some way to disable Ctrl + Shift + Q without installing 3rd party software? Most of the key mapping extensions contain security warnings.

I find myself constantly frustrated that a "destructive" action like quit has been put so closely beside a productive option like cycle back a tab. The combination of having Ctrl + Shift + Q beside Ctrl + Shift + Tab is quite obnoxious on a QWERTY keyboard. I would like to try map this to something that makes more sense like Ctrl + Shift + E or Ctrl + Alt + Q.

I'm running Firefox 82.0.3.

When I initially set up Firefox Monitor, I added 5 email addresses to this service.

After a couple of weeks I would like to add another email address. However, I am not able to find a field to add a new email address.

When going to monitor.firefox.com and logging in, all I can see is the dashboard showing numbers of email addresses and breaches. The button to manage email addresses only leads to a page where I can delete the existing addresses, but not inserting a new one.

Maybe it is just too obvious and I'm blind. Please help.

Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!
