Yesterday i logged off as usual and everything was fine and i could log in in many webs without asking me my password again, today i start computer and all webs ask me to log in, i can see in google mail accounts when i choose an account the password appears, but the problem is that i must choose the accounts when yesterday i didnt need to do it. In some webs dont remember what mail account i was using, though in security tab i can check the button to see all my passwords and all are there, my login.json is fine and the key4.db too What is even more weird is that twitter account didnt ask me to log in again, it remembered my account and password but the rest of webs i tried dont So basically i can recover everything but it is a pain and want to understand why happened this and if i can do it without having to go web by web checking what email i used. Remember windows told me i had to clear some space in hard drive yesterday, could that be related?

As part of my job, I need to run JNLP applications. I can run them from Dolphin (KUbuntu's file explorer) or the command line without problem. However, it would be a lot easier if I could launch them directly from Firefox.

However, when click on a JNLP link my application choices are either "cautious-launcher" which does nothing or another unrelated application. This results in the file being downloaded and then I have to go either in Dolphin or on the command line to the downloads directory and run my JNLP application. Lots of unnecessary steps.

Under preferences I can see that JNLP is set to use javaws, but that option never shows up.

I tried setting "browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable" to true, but that made no difference.

How do I fix this?

I have a couple of users that use a shared email address with the Outlook for Web Application. When this is left open overnight, for some reason, it starts to fill the storage of the PC until the PC's storage is maxed out and unusable. We found that simply closing the Outlook for Web tab in Firefox fixes the issue, until it's left open overnight again and starts filling the storage again.

The issue doesn't happen in Chrome or Edge, both users have the most updated versions of Firefox, and I've followed all of the steps I could find to clear website data. Nothing has made a difference. I talked to Microsoft Support about the issue, and they told me to use another browser, but the users only want to use Firefox (which I understand).

Any help or knowledge with the issue would be fantastic. I attached some screenshots of the memory increasing on the PCs to help show what is happening. Thanks!

Hi Foxers,

I was forced by MS to upgrade my Windows 10 as all support has ended for v1803 BUT, for the past two years every automatic (or manual) update failed, including to v20H2...  So I did a full backup (again) and cleared (in most cases by deleting large files) as much space as I could giving the upgrade over 48GB of free space. It STILL failed.
Next I did a forced upgrade to v1909 which succeeded but wiped out all configurations including Firefox.
But not a problem, so I thought, as I have a full backup on my external drive - BUT, to my dismay, the Restore failed to find it, so all I have to work with is a two week old Incremental backup and got back 'most' of my original config except for Chrome, Edge, Opera and, of course, Firefox.. 
Now (finally) the question: What files do I need to restore to get me back to where I was 2 weeks ago?
I tried restoring the latest available 8v7yijby.default from the AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles directory, but it just wiped out the three new bookmarks I made and set Firefox back as if I were a complete newbie and not a 20+ year veteran..
Any knowledgeable and helpful suggestions of what I can do from here on?
Thanks, in advance, Nick.

I have had this problem many times and for a long time, ever since starting to use Firefox again (SEE Image $20210320-mar~3-Download-Partial_Split_Problem.jpg).

I end up with 2 Dwnlded Files; 1 file ending in ".exe", but with a 0 KB File size, and another file ending in ".exe.part", with the file size that the Dwnlded file should have, in this case, 622 MB. I have no wish to "fudge" a fix, by renaming the file with a size of 622 MB, in case this causes corruption, or maybe down the line.

I would like a "real" fix, so the problem does not occur in the 1st place.

When I open a browser window the carat is flashing in the search box but that is not where the focus is. I don't know where the focus is. When I start to type other windows open depending on what key is depressed. I have to manually click in the search box in order to type something there. My questions are: Since the carat is flashing in the search box why is the focus not there? Why is the carat flashing if that is not the focus? Where is the focus? How does this get rectified?

My local telephone number website (editus.lu) says that I type too fast to be human, and makes me waste 5 minutes identifying all the pictures with cement-mixers (snowdrops,football pitches,etc,etc). I typed nothing at all, so I guess Firefox is upsetting it. Any way to stop this little misunderstanding ?

As of a couple updates ago, Firefox is remembering the last-used printer. I don't want that. I always want "HP LaserJet 1020".

I have
