I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

I had to uninstall and reinstall Firefox due to some issues, after reinstalling, sites I used to access such as Facebook or Gmail for instance, always stop to ask for username/password. The password manager has it already ready, but you have to click on it now, instead of going directly to the site. How can I change it back? Nothing seems to exist under options/password and security. Thanks

I have had AddBlockPlus installed for years blocking ALL adds ! I have lately seen adds before I can see videos in YouTube ! I use FireFox in latest update - automatic updates itself.

I have tried to UN-install and then RE_install AdblockPlus with no luck - I stille on some videos have adds - one or even two - before I can see the video !

If I wait for a while to start the video sometimes the adds disappears and I can see the video.

I beleave it has to do with updating Windows to 20H2 - because I think I have got the problem after that update.

What can I do to get these adds til Hell ?

I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

I just made a clean install of windows. It seems that firefox for some bizarre reason won't accept cookies from some sites.

For example at www.office.com, when I click "sing in" and I set up my credentials, I am still at the same "sign in" page. The problem can be easier understood in the following capture. (excuse the watermark)

I have the same issue with other sites, such as my bank, IRS, etc etc, making firefox practically unusable. Is there any fix for this?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 87 and noticed that I wasn't able to go back to the previous webpage by clicking on the backspace button like what I have done in the past if I'm not using a mouse on my laptop and had to click on the back button in the toolbar with the trackpad. I'm not too sure of why that happened with the upgrade and was a little surprised about that. Hope I can be able to get around this in some way if one of you know anything about this. Thanks.

Hello, I work at a school that uses Google Suite for document sharing. I use Firefox and there were never any problems, but over the past two days a few bugs have appeared. So far I have noticed: 1) Hangouts doesn't work 2) I can't share files with colleagues as Editors of the document (viewer, yes)

When I switch to Chrome, everything works fine.

Is there an issue with Google updated and Firefox not being aligned, or is the problem on my end?

I am using the Developer Edition of Firefox and this problems occur when I noticed that the permission pop-up didn't contain all of the information it was supposed to say. This problem also happens when I wanted to bookmark something in the browser itself.

I have installed quite a few extension and some of them also experience the same problem :

  • React Developer Tools (affected)
  • Multi-Account Containers (not affected)
  • AdBlock (not affected)
  • Password Manager (not affected)
  • Tab Session Manager (not affected)

I think this is a bug on Firefox end and I would like it to be fixed as soon as possible. Thank you very much.

Hi,

After a new windows installation, firefox opens a new tab (newtab override) and places the cursor in the upper adressbar. I am looking for a way so that the cursor appears in the search bar in the middle. It happens with the newtab override and also without it. I could not find anything on helpsites and fora.

Does this look familiar to you ?

Questions and suggestions about how far back you can back tab the linked sites. I noticed that when there are too many links in a tab, the oldest drops off and you can no longer back tab to it. (1) Is there an option to set how many links are allowed before drop off occurs? (2) When that happens, how does it affect the JAVASCRIPT history.go() function? (2a) For HTML the first time the <body onload='function()'> the function can find the programs position in the link chain by using history.length. However, later (like returning from a link) is there a way to find that position? Saving it has hazards. Maybe you can suggest a history.current element. (3) I would like a way on browser screen to make the current link the first link (drop all the prior ones). It would reduce memory requirements. (I know, this should go in the suggestion box, but it is closed).

I'm posting this again because I really need help! Also because I'm afraid I messed something up by replying to my own question. But I kept getting the "A copy of Firefox is already open" error, so I deleted one of the two profiles that I found. Apparently I chose the wrong one, and now all of my bookmarks are gone. I DID click something that said NOT to remove all my information (bookmarks, etc) so there must be a way to get it back, but how? I really only care about the bookmarks. Also want to mention that I'm on Mac, not Windows. I tried something called Recuva but I can't run .exe files on my Mac.
