I have AVAST running on my computer in passive mode; I simply have not bothered to remove it, fearing screwing something up. Now, AVAST has stripped all my saved passwords from FIREFOX. Can I load these back into Firefox from my renegade AVAST?

I am debugging this app using the network panel. At one point in the flow the app launches a new window/tab and the network calls after that point are lost. Is there a way to make sure the network panel is open by default for this session or this domain or just all the time?

Starting yesterday when I turn on my computer, or after it has been in use for some hours, totally unexpectedly, unasked for, suddenly a commercial comes on, a speaking voice with background music - it can interrupt whatever is already going on, is not identified in any way, no accompanying images, and therefore of course how can I get rid of it?

A lot of websites are difficult to use when they track, and I'd rather access them only in incognito mode. Is there a way to create a list of websites that only open in incognito (preferably just automatically launching an incognito window)? If not, can I request it as a feature?

I'd also like to create a blacklist for websites from appearing in highlights on my homepage. Can I do that? If not can I request it as a feature?

Thanks so much!

I thought this might be a Windows issue, but it appears more likely to be a Firefox problem...... Almost every time Firefox updates itself on one of my several PCs (a Dell), all of my saved logins are removed.

After some checking, I found that the actual logins file had been changed from "logins.json" to "logins.json.corrupt".

Why Firefox is doing this is anybodies guess, but it may have something to do with the actual passwords themselves containing characters that it doesn't like.......

Easy resolution - find the "corrupt" file and rename it!

Using Windows Explorer, you will need to make hidden files visible, then go to (User)>Appdata>Roaming>Mozilla>Firefox>Profiles>(71r822oe.*********), then scrol down to "logins.json.corrupt" - select, rename, "logins.json", agree to the change warning, and exit. All now works as before.

(The bits in brackets will be your own name and registry entry)

Please, Mozilla - can you try and stop this happening in the first place ?

Recently had a HD crash and had to re-install windows and all my browsers.

Previously, Firefox would immediately load all my previous tab but now I have to click on each one to get them to load. I have looked in the options and there is no longer a checkbox to tell Firefox to load these tab immediately. The previous version I was using had this option.

Is it still available and if so, where do I find it to enable it?

Regards Brad

On certain webpage like, only certain links dont allow right click menu but open link in same tab window instead. Ctrl leftclick or middle button act the same.

Example is this webpage: https://ceddit.com/r/news/ Links on the right side of webpage act that way: /r/inthenews /r/worldnews /r/politics new comments

Links on the left work as they should. (right click opens menu, middle button/ctrl leftclick open link in new tab)

"about:config" and setting "dom.event.contextmenu.enabled" to "false" also doesnt fix the problem

setting "clicking options open links in a new window" in reddit preferences also doesnt change behavior

In Firefox 55 (2017) does it still make sense to move the cache to RAM?

I refer to the classic case where I have an SSD and don't want to "consume" it by watching endless videos on YouTube (and/or other sites) that are being buffered to the disk. Or does the buffering of such videos occur in RAM by default in Firefox?

I also want to speed up Firefox at the maximum.

What are the downsides of having the entire cache in RAM and, if none, why isn't the default instalation with no cache at all on the disk (browser.cache.disk.enable = false) ?

What is the best configuration of Firefox (regarding cache) on a laptop with the an SSD and 4 GB of RAM?

Thanks in advance.

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome and so far Im loving it, except for one tiny bit, which unfortunatly drives me crazy:

When I use the search from the adress bar to look up functions with dots '.' in them, Firefox always assumes these are websites, add 'www.' and takes me to ' Site could not be loaded' instead of using google to search.

Is there any way to change this behaviour in the adress bar?

Is there any way to prevent a website from redirecting me to a SPAM website? Some websites will do that even if you right click on a link that you wanted to open in a new tab. Then after the website you were on redirects you to an annoying useless website, and you return to the original website is the only time that link you wanted to open will work.

Firefox Headless ---Screenshot not working for local HTML files

I'm unable to generate a screenshot of a local HTML file using Firefox's (v60.9.0) [headless mode][1]

Here's the command I'm using:

   "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P AJ --screenshot test.png "file:///C:/html_export.html"

I've tried with and without a profile and with different numbers of slashes after file. There are no errors in the command line - it just doesn't generate an output.

This command works fine when I substitute the file:// with an external website like:

   "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P AJ --screenshot test.png google.com

Could it be related to the [redirect bug mentioned here][2]?

Any help is appreciated! Perhaps theres a way to turn on output verbosity for --headless mode?

my computer has both ipv4 and ipv6 addresses.

When I go to any website, the website will log my ipv4 address.

assuming the website is ipv6 ready, Is there a way to make firefox use ipv6 on that website so that the ipv6 address is logged instead of my ipv4?

Is there a proxy config or something?
