I'm using Firefox Beta on a slow laptop in Linux -so, manually changing videos to 360p from the cog works to make them play smoothly. The facebook SD Only setting in https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=videos doesn't really work -only in a few videos. If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

So since a couple of weeks I have this problem again.

I am prompted with a master password prompt randomly, not when I'm starting up or loading a page with a saved login.

I watch a Youtube video and 10 minutes in suddenly PASSWORD PROMPT. Super annoying.

And I'm NOT using SYNC.

One phenomenon to notice is during the same time frame, I was greeted with an authentification prompt on startup by a website I had in an inactive tab (I automatically load the last session with only loading the latest tab). But I closed that tab and still have the password manager problem.

Normally, if I click a pdf file on-line, I get the question to open or save. If I choose open, I get a separate pdf file in my Windows task bar to open. Yesterday, this behavior was different. The PDF file became a little icon in the bottom left of my screen, and when I clicked that it opened the pdf in a browser tab. Today this is gone and it is back to its old way. I prefer the tab. Do you know why this happened or how to get that back?

Hi,

Today I installed the new Firefox 74 but now my multirow bookmarks toolbar is not working correct anymore. They are not side by side, they are now among one another. See attached screen, ca. 75% of the screen is used by the bookmarks.

The following code is contained in my userChrome.css file:

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar Firefox 66+ */

#PersonalToolbar {
  min-height: unset !important;
  max-height: unset !important;
/* text-align: center !important; */
}

#PersonalToolbar #PlacesToolbarItems {
  overflow-x: visible !important;
  overflow-y: visible !important;
  display: inline-block !important;
}

#PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon[label]:not([label=""]) {
  /* Reduce padding on individual bookmarks to fit rows closer together */
  margin-inline-end: 0px !important;
}

Does anybody have a solution for this?

PS: If you need more info, please ask...

Hello.

Is there a way to sync only specific bookmark folders between my PC's and phones? I love the Sync feature in Firefox. But I have many bookmark folders on one PC that I don't want transferred to my other PC nor to my phone. If Mozilla doesn't allow folder-specific syncing, is there an add-on feature that can accomplish this?

Thank you. I appreciate your help. -Brian in Alaska

Windows and/or Firefox updated recently and something odd is happening. If I open Firefox from my desktop I can access my bookmarks, no problem. If I read my emails in Windows Live Mail and click on a link from an email to a website, the web page opens but I cannot access my bookmarks from this window. They just aren't there. I have to go and open Firefox from the desktop or from the icon in the menu bar.

Anyone have an idea what happened and how to fix?

I am setting up a new desktop and want to copy my Firefox profile from one Linux desktop to another. In the past I have just used sync and then had to go thru the process of making all the config adjustments and tweaking other settings that are not part of sync. I just copied over my Thunderbird profile and it was a perfect copy and paste. Unfortunately I have tried twice with FF and its not working. Keep getting the message that the profile being copied in is from an older version. That's not true however the one being copied in is from 77.0.1 and the new desktop being pasted into is 71.0. Any idea what I am doing wrong that's an easy fix? Thanks.

On launching Firefox, none of the extensions work. uBlock Origin does nothing, LastPass prompts me to acknowledge their privacy policy then login, Firefox logs out of my user account, the containers tab does nothing (although this might be related to not being logged in). These are the only services I use. Everything works if I take the time to set them back up (except uBlock Origin).

Strangely enough, reddit.com will not load, and this is the only website I have had problems with. When prompted, the address bar ignores it, not even trying to load the site, completely blank page without an error.

Everything works perfectly fine (including uBlock Origin) in private browsing mode.

This started happening a few days ago. Since then I have done a clean install of windows (which was needed anyways) but to no avail. It is probably something stupid I managed to mess up in Firefox, although I would have no idea what that would be as I haven't changed anything advanced since the clean install.

I am completely dumb-founded. Any help would be appreciated.

I understand the newest version of Firefox offers support for WebP images, which is cool and great... but not when I need to download those images for use on my computer. As an artist I need to be able to save things as .jpg or .png for my art programs (or even preview) to be able to open them. Is there any way to make this an option, or to not default to webp when saving images?

I've also tried changing the extension on the file using the "all files" option but it just corrupts the file and won't open them.
