Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Autofill Causes Firefox To Crash

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

I had Firefox open with multiple tabs and minimized the screen by clicking on the upper right-hand corner's minimize symbol (looks like a dash).

I am now unsuccessfully trying to redisplay Firefox to continue researching my topic. Alt + Tab selection displays the window but selecting does not display it. I move the mouse to get the Start Bar to show up, then I move the mouse on top of the Firefox icon and a smaller than usual Firefox window displays beside the Start Bar. I tried to click on it to select it and display it as I usually do but, it just does not display in full or small size. I have been able to open another Firefox Window in "regular size" that works (but I need some info on the one that does not maximize) and am sending this question using the recent Firefox Window. I have tried successfully to Show All Bookmarks (only because I was just trying to see if clicking on a bookmark there would make the window display).

This may be a Windows issue. I do not know...  :o( Help?

3D programs on my computer aren't rendering. Things like 3D graphing calculators, Google Earth, in-browser games, and other 3D model type programs are just showing up as a black screen. Whats even weirder is that the 2D version of the graphing calculator still works (on firefox), regular google maps works, as well as software and games downloaded on my computer, and the same websites in other browsers (the 3D calculator still works on Edge), so its not a graphics/hardware or flashplayer problem. Firefox is up to date, and i can't think of anything else to try Attached: examples of different 3D models I could find that aren't working, Geogebra 3D calculator, some 3D molecule models, and a model of some arduino stuff from TinkerCAD.

Why did Firefox developers simply disable "Backspace" instead of making it a selection in "Settings"? I understand why some users can't stay "focused" and lose typed data, but the rest of us really like the backspace function to go back a page.

Yes you can re-enable it (& I did so) using "About:Config" but that's akin to REGEDIT and not for the faint of heart...

Am I going to have to make this edit every time FF Updates? and on each of my PCs?

Hi there. Ever since the latest Firefox update, the star ratings accompanying my reviews on my website have shrunk. They used to be the perfect size, but now they're tiny and look ridiculous. The stars I use aren't by code but rather ones than I cut and paste from a saved file. The words are all the same size as previously; it's only the stars that have shrunk. This has affected all the past hundreds of articles on my site as well as the new ones I add. What can I do to make the stars bigger as they were before this unfortunate update? Unfortunately, I don't have an example of how they used to look (because how could I have predicted such a nonsensical and user-unfriendly change?), but attached is how they look now. Thanks.

Hallo,

I have two firefox profiles with which I wish to share bookmarks. An easy solution is to create a symbolic link replacing the one places.sqlite file with a link to the file in the other profile, thus we're always just using one set of bookmarks and all is happy. However, Firefox keeps overriding my link; labeling the file "corrupt" and replacing it with a cached version. I need to know how to stop firefox from overriding my input and respect the changes made in the profile folder. I need to disable whatever mechanism is going on that is checking the files and reconstituting them.
