Quite often when I page down to read message from website, then I found I missed something and like to go back one page, page up will bring me back to the top. Upon checking it is because Firefox don't move cursor with page down, the cursor still at the top and thus page up bring me there

It is really inconvenience and if anyway to fix that?

Firefox is saving and offering to auto-fill login information (i.e. usernames) even though I explicitly ask they NOT be saved, and even though these sites are not among the list I allow through Lockwise. How can I forever purge these and prevent the problem from recurring?

I have used Firefox for 15+ years. But it's been 2 weeks since I'm able to sign into my hotmail account while using Firefox. Why is this? I've rebooted, I've cleared cache and cookies. Any suggestions would be great.

When I press [↑] or [↓] after opening a new tab, a dropdown list appears. One has a location to my linux computer (file:///home/foo.html) and has a gray thumbtack icon. What is it and how do I delete it?

When I open a new tab and press either [↑] or [↓] or click in the location bar (the blank space where the URL goes), a dropdown list appears. See attached screenshot for the list.

There are some frequently visited sites like gmail. There is one bookmarked site I frequently access. In the screenshot, this is the one with the blue star. And then there's the mysterious URL to an html on my Linux Mint computer ("/home/[...]/[...].html”). The icon for this is a gray thumbtack.

I press the down key until this mysterious URL is selected, and then press Delete, but it doesn’t get deleted.

What is this and how do I get rid of it? I tried searching for it in my Bookmarks, but I don’t think it’s a bookmark.


I'm on Firefox 81.0 (64-bit) Linux Mint. But I've had this problem for many versions now.

Links in emails do not work. If Firefox doesn't fix this I'll have to switch to another browser. Too much information comes in email these days. I've tried that "mail to" fix, which makes no sense, and didn't fix it anyway.

"Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" not working on new Win10 machine

OK, so this Firefox feature worked fine on my "old" and beloved Win7 machine. I finally broke down and upgraded to a new Surface Win10 Pro machine running Firefox 81.0.1 , transferred all my old Firefox settings and saved logins, but now Firefox will not save any new logins and passwords as it did on my beloved Win7 "boat anchor."

I read through the Firefox help section and all I could find is some talk about Trend Micro security software blocking this Firefox feature. I DO NOT HAVE TREND MICRO on this new machine.

The only security software I have running is Malwarebytes 4.2.1 and of course the ever-present Microsoft Security.

So how do I get back my beloved Firefox feature: "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites?"

HELP and thanks!

I uninstalled Firefox and then re-installed Firefox. I did this because I added an extension and did not think it was working properly. Then when I went to delete it could not find it so I uninstalled and got latest Firefox. Now, I cannot find my bookmarks. Please tell me the uninstall DID NOT REMOVE my bookmarks of several years!!! In the past when uninstalling, there was a check box asking do you want all bookmarks etc removed... Don't tell me that my bookmarks are gone...

Hi guys, Firefox Update was made end of August, then I remember the PC was running slower for 2 days but then all the bookmarks and passwords just disapeared - also the toolbar with all saved bookmarks. How is this possible - PC is running normal now. I was not doing any resets or something like that. Thanks for helping

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.
