I recently installed windows on a new solid state hard drive, and did a fresh install of firefox, but I forgot to manually backup my bookmarks. The old install is still on the old windows hard drive, is there a way for me to move them onto the new install? I'd prefer to not have to rebuild the whole list from scratch!

Every day when I sign in to Firefox I receive this email message, and I don't know why. I have been signing into Firefox for a few years. I don't remember when this started and I'm not sure if this is just your way of authenticating that I am me or not. Please explain this email I receive from accounts@firefox.com. I have changed my password many times so that can't be it, at least I don't think that's it.

Thank you for your help Rhonda

Hello there; I had installed the "savefrom.net" extension. This extension automatically generated the website address to the "bookmarks toolbar". I deleted the extension and deleted the shortcut as well. But when the bookmarked website shortcut "firefox" is closed and reopened, it adds itself to the bookmarks toolbar again. No matter what I did, it didn't work. I don't want to delete Firefox completely and reinstall it. Because there are too many shortcuts and data that I use all the time. How do you think I can solve this problem?

Running Win10 and latest Firefox browser. Trying to get rid of 'Your browser is being managed by your organization' Followed Regedit instructions - only default is listed - no policy. Looked in Mozilla Firefox in Program Files & Program Files (x86) - no policies.json in Distribution. Even did a search in those subfiles - nothing. So how do I get rid of this? I was searching 'Broiling Frigidaire Induction' and one of the videos corrupted my original Firefox. I needed a hard stop to get our of that. I deleted the app and reloaded, and I keep getting the 'Browser managed...' message. Bummer!

Hi all,

So I am a multi-lingual user and changing input languages regularly by pressing Windows key + Spacebar.

In Firefox, I prefer turning "Smooth scrolling" OFF so the page sort-of jumps at a fixed distance instead "decelerates" when scrolling.

So far so good. But recently I noticed this Windows key + Spacebar combination can change Firefox's scrolling behavior.

Steps to reproduce: 1. Add one more language to Windows (I am using Win10 ... not sure about Win11 though) so that Windows key + Spacebar shows the language selecting popup 2. Turn OFF "Use smooth scrolling" in Firefox settings 3. Find a long webpage to test scrolling -- it should be "jumping" 4. On the same page, make sure Firefox is at focus, press Windows key + Spacebar to show that popup 5. Try scrolling again -- it's now scrolling very "smoothly". To my eyes, it's even much smoother than turning on "Use smooth scrolling" 6. Now click somewhere outside of Firefox(i.e. Taskbar) to lose focus then focus back to Firefox and scroll again, the smoothness is lost ... until switching language again.

I personally found it quite annoying... Is there something I can do to stop it from happening?

Thanks,

J

I am making a web page (in Dreamweaver) for a meeting and I have certain things in bold. In Firefox, the bold (<b></b>) does not show. Bold shows up on my pages on Chrome and on Microsoft edge. I've also tried the <strong> tag, but that doesn't work either. The font family for the pages is sans-serf. I really need this to show on most browsers.

Only the Firefox browser is not allowing me to log into my Clickbank account, yet other browsers I have not issues with.

Going to: https://accounts.clickbank.com/login.htm and logging in, using Firefox, I get the following prompt: "Oops, there was an issue submitting your information. Please try again later. If this issue persists please contact our customer support team."

And, have been informed by the staff at Clickbank to try different things... which is how I came to discover that I CAN log into my Clickbank account using ANY browser EXCEPT Firefox.

I've cleared the cache and history from Firefox, I'm using standard for privacy anyway... and I've also cleaned my computer with CCleaner and rebooted the computer. I've check that I'm using the latest and greatest version of Firefox.

Yet, I STILL cannot log into my Clickbank account using Firefox.

ANY suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated, else I will need to STOP using Firefox, as I'm concerned that whatever is doing this, will start shutting me down from logging into all accounts, every where on the net.

Thank you in advance.

The bar that contained those items disappeared in Firefox after the update to 110 I believe. I don't know how to get it back, I've searched settings. The bookmarks and all the data appear to still be there. It's been there since, I think, version .9 something. I updated to windows 10 from windows 7 about 3 months back. I noticed the change immediately. I don't even know what the bar is called. I still have my windows 7 machine since I am still trying to resolve problem with windows 10 and I'm even thinking of going back to window 7. It did the update to 109 without a problem.

HELP!!

It is probably something simple by windows is more a game machine to me. I learned computers on a GE-645 to give you an idea of how old I am.

Since the last Firefox update, I've noticed an issue whenever I launch the browser. I have it set up so that I have multiple tabs open, and it's set up so that when Firefox starts up, it opens all of the previous tabs and starts me on the tab I was on when I closed the browser previously.

Now whenever I start Firefox, it opens to the last tab I was on, but said tab opens on my current homepage instead of the website that tab was on previously. I experimented by changing my homepage to "Youtube.com", picked a different open tab, closed Firefox and opened it again and sure enough, the tab was now on the Youtube page instead of what it had been previously.

Is this just a bug of the current Firefox version, or is there something in settings I can do to fix this?

Tabs, history, bookmarks, basicly anything and everything that was crucial are gone, seemingly after recent update. I had similar problem a couple of month ago and didn't find clear solution back then, but it all got sorted out maybe in couple of days (probably with next update or something?). Well who would've thought i would get screwed like that a second time.

So i can't tell for sure whats caused it or how it got fixed. What i manged to figure out both times this happend is that somehow i have 2 versions of Firefox Profiles judgin by the dates of the cursed updates. So i guess my stuff is still there but i can't acces it.

Also worth mentioning is that both times i've got screwed by updates, my FF shortcuts from Quick Acces pannel stoped working and i needed to drag'n'drop em all over again.

Im at totall loss here, i know the info i've provided is almost nonexistant but if anyone knows whats up i would be greatly apreciative if you could tell how do i fix this and prevent it from happening in the future.

Dear Firefox Team, good morning.

I hope you are doing well and that you are all healthy.

Guys... while looking for a way to measure the performance of our site, we came across the Core Web Vitals (CWV) some time ago. These are Google KPIs for measuring the user experience on a page (https://web.dev/vitals/#core-web-vitals). Unfortunately, some of the KPIs (like the Largest Contentful Paint or Cumulative Layout Shift) are currently only accessible using Chrome and it's preformance API. That's a pity, because there are also many people using Firefox who visit our site... and it would be interesting to have such KPIs as well.

In an article by Cloudflare (https://developers.cloudflare.com/analytics/web-analytics/understanding-web-analytics/core-web-vitals/) we recently learned that Firefox is also planning to expose the metrics used in the CWV... only the "coming soon" from the article is a bit vague. That's why I'm contacting you to get some more information on that topic. Do you perhaps know whether the topic is planned and will be tackled this year?

Thank you for your attention. Best regards, Carlos

Windows FF 108.0.2 automatically downloads PDF files now, even though ASK WHERE is checked in Settings. I have, for YEARS, had FF set to ask me where to store any download, and it is still set that way. And whenever I opened a PDF link, FF would display the link in its PDF viewer, and if I wanted to download it, I would click the PDF viewer download button.

However, now FF automatically downloads it to disk FIRST, popping up the Downloads box showing progress, before ever displaying it on screen. What changed? This seems like a HUGE security risk.
