While exploring about pages in Firefox, I came across about:profiling. I'm not sure what exactly it does, but since I've been to it, a profiler icon has been added to the toolbar and I can't find any way to get rid of it completely (only ways are to hide it). If it could be added, there must also be a way to remove it? How can I close it?

I got a new computer so I created an acct and set all my open tabs and history to sync. It wasn't intuitive to my not techie brain, but found out how to open all the tabs on the new computer. However, they don't open in the same order (makes it almost useless when you have a lot of tabs), and the tabs don't have their associated history.

Is there some way to have Firefox open tabs and history in the same state on the new device?

Moving from Windows to Linux and in the process moving from Chrome to Firefox. In Linux, there seems to be an issue where Firefox isn't recognizing that I have installed Chrome. No problem, I went into Windows to do the move instead. But since the data isn't saved and you have to have an instance of Firefox running (?) to actually sync, I decided to download Firefox on my iPhone, get my passwords from Chrome, then sync to my iPhone, boot back to Linux, then sync on Linux with the data on my iPhone, and somehow in the process locked myself out of logging into Firefox on my iPhone due to how many times I've had to log in to Firefox to figure out this convoluted and broken process. People are wanting to switch to Firefox due to ad blocking support, and this is a massive barrier to entry. Can we just fix importing from a csv file?

I've tried to search and found some other posts about this, but not a ton... leading me to believe there is something wrong.

Issue: Fonts on some sites are too heavy/bold (vs appearing correctly on Chrome/Chromium browsers) Environment: Windows 10 or 11, Firefox stable (currently 105.0.1) Example site: https://www.subaruoutback.org (this is not the only one, just an example) Workaround(s): I can do one of two things... I can either enforce browser fonts globally, which fixes the issue but then also break some sites in other ways or I can use an add-on to let me selectively enforce browser fonts as needed (which is what I am doing).

Screenshots attached, this is my experience on multiple PCs (Windows 10 and 11). One image is from Firefox, one is from Chrome.

On some sites, it isn't a huge deal... maybe just looks bad but is functionally fine. On some sites the issue is more impactful and actually creates readability issues.

Of course I can continue to work around the issue, but ideally I would like to fix it.

I did read that there are some changes site owners can make for font handling, but obviously requesting that sort of thing isn't realistic in a general sense.

Thank you!

Copied from Fifefox:

Youtube switched to separate audio/video streaming technology for higher quality formats and no longer provides direct 720p (Since 24 September 2018)/1080p/mp3 streams. Converting these streams to downloadable formats for you needs powerful server infrastructure, therefore 1080p/mp3 downloading has been limited to PRO users. Read more at - https://videodroid.org/pro_upgrade.html. FREE users can download all formats in CACHE where some PRO users fetched the video/audio in past 24 hours, to test the feature you can try downloading popular videos.

If this is the case WHY should I use Firefox? There are other browsers!!!

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

repost from there, here its probably more appropriate: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1391582 In the meantime I figured out that sent tabs apparently only remain on the server for 60 days and that there is probably no log, even offline. But no definitive answer. And my feature request still remains for a history of sent tabs.

Dear Mozilla Team,

during the recent weeks I was away from my main PC and primarily used my iphone to browse the web. Every now and then I sent a link to the PC using Safari's share and the integrated send to function of Firefox for iOS. This usually worked really well, even when my PC was powered off. When I got back home and started my PC, sync would take forever, but was then interupted and all further tries to sync (hoping to get those tabs eventually) failed.

My question is if there is a log file of all those links that are sent to different devices? I believe there has to be one given that Mozilla's servers are being used and tabs (usually) arrive on powered-off devices following a request to the server.

If there is, please tell me how to access it/send it to me. If there is not, please take this as a feature request (a sent links history being gathered locally as part of the wider Firefox profile maybe and as a viewable list of all shared tabs for all devices so that tabs can still be sent to single devices but also accessed from others, similar to how tabs can be accessed from all synced devices).

From time to time i need to log into my ISP's website portal, yet from today which is since the update yesterday) it will not allow me to it has my log in details saved correctly, but when i try to log in the sit it says they are incorrect, which they are not.

At first I thought the issue was with my ISP's website, so I was on the phone to them and together we tried crhome and edge and the log ins worked just fine, but not with the Firefox browser.

So sadly either something you changed in that update seems to be messing with the log in on this site and possibly others or possibly one of the add ons I use with it together with the browser is now causing an issue and is interferring I wouldn't have the first clue.

I have autofill turned off, but whenever I go to a a particular page that has a contact form for a web-based software I use for my business, FF automatically puts my first and last names in the respective fields, in the place of existing names for my particular contacts.

How does FF have my name in the first place, since I have never knowingly provided it, how do I remove it from FF, and how do I stop this autofill from happening, since I have it turned off yet it's still working?

So this problem is isolated with Firefox as it doesn't happen with Edge or VLC on this pc. If I have Twitch or Youtube, probably any other audio or video playing, open when I turn the monitor off the audio will no longer go through properly when it is turned back on. The video is still playing fine but the audio isn't going through properly. Refreshing the page fixes the issue.

I have made sure to disable all other audio outputs and defaulted the current HDMI output. Audio playback works fine on every other application that I have tried.

I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!
