Hi! Hoping someone can help.

I opened Firefox and all of my bookmarks have vanished. The folders that used to contain them are still there and have my custom names, but the folders are all empty.

I'm tried to restore the bookmarks from the backup within Firefox and it does not work.

I really need these for work and need help restoring them as soon as possible.

Can anyone help?

i have one url that everytime I click on the tab, or close it completely, and type it in again, it always opens up at 30% zoom.

I can get rid of it easily by clicking on the 30% in the url window but it is completely annoying.

I am not sure how i did it in the first place and i am wondering how to get rid of it, or at least change it so it doesnt come back.

Hi,

I'm a paranoid guy so i tend to investigate anything and everything weird that happens to me.

Yesterday, i was browsing a movie directory looking for a movie to watch outside of major platforms (Netflix). The site was full of ads and other crap, my AV was ringing the bells, blocking lots of potentially malicious links.

Suddenly, i got prompted by Windows Defender to allow firefox.exe to communicate on public networks too. Private networks were allowed already, but somehow it wanted access over public networks too.

It looked exactly like this : https://content.invisioncic.com/Mmalware/monthly_2018_03/image.png.2897f90ed89aa34691c24143e249ab12.png

I am wondering if i could've been exploited by some sort of 0-day, as FireFox security is weaker now, we might see more broad attacks on people.

How could this happen and why would FireFox suddenly want to add new incoming rule?

I have the latest version of FireFox for many days, haven't installed anything new or updated anything. It happened just like that. Also, i was calling with a friend via Messenger which uses WebRTC, but we've been calling like that for past week or so, so don't have a clue why did it happen now...

Should i be concerned?

Let me know, please.

When I try to dowload a file, i fails and create a 0 byte file. I tried with repository firefox, and download the tar.gz from dev version. Both fail. I deleted ~/.mozilla and ~/.cache/mozilla to start fresh and the error persist. I can browse, open a PDF in integrated viewer, but I am unable to save it. Other browsers can download files to ~/Downloads without problems.

Any hint of how to debug (and/or solve) the problem is welcome.

Thanks

Hello all I have a site that I log into to manage different things and everytime I go the help section it asks me to relogin. I contacted the support for this site and they say it is a problem of cookies or cache. However, even after I have wiped the cookies and delete the navigation history, I cannot log in.

Is there a magic way to clean cache and cookies, thank you

Hi,

Writing in some distress here. Had Firefox open with a lot of tabs, most relevantly hundreds of pages relevant for my PhD research, when my computer decided to re-start on its own. When I opened Firefox afterward I was greeted by the "What's new with Firefox" page, all my tabs gone. Both "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed Windows" were completely empty. "Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and unclickable. After looking up solutions to this problem online I went to my profile at C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, and discovered there was no sessionstore-backups folder there. There is a file called sessionstore.js, but it has last been modified May 2017. I checked and my history is still all there. Is there anything I can do, or do I need to go over the thousands upon thousands of entries there in search of the ones relevant for my research?

I hardly know how to describe the problem I've been having but I'm fed up with it! Just now I was in a site to purchase an item and clicked to go through PayPal. I could enter all my log in details for PayPal but it would not open the PayPal site. This has happened every time I've tried to use PayPal lately. I then have to go and use Edge and do my purchase through there, no problem at all.

Often when I've tried to open a log in window that opens in a separate pop up style window, that window will only open as a tiny window in the top left corner. I have to drag the bottom and sides to get it big enough to fill out. Then when you enter that info ready for the next section, it reverts right back to the tiny window once more. I've done all sorts of things in my settings and mostly no change. I did however get the bank log in window to stop doing it and work properly.

Another issue is the correct time for me here in Aust is no longer being recognised in some cases. One is the Track My Hours App. I enter 'Start now' and it says 6:55 AM when it's actually 4:55 PM on my computer clock! It is not the App as I now use it in Edge as well and it is fine there. I never used to have this problem with the much earlier versions of Firefox, it only started a month or so ago when I got a new computer with the latest version installed, at that stage I think it was 72 and I had other problems as well that finally got sorted.

I really want to continue using Firefox but can't do so with several sites and then waste a lot of time swapping over to another browser. I have version 83 now.

Can anyone please help!!! Thanks.

It seems that Firefox does not sync all settings the way for example Chrome does. In Google chrome one can expect absolutely all settings to sync across browser instances instantly. In Firefox only parts of the settings are synced. This makes Firefox unreliable and inconvenient because it is not apparent to the user which settings are synced and which are not.

Here is my experience:

- I made a new Firefox account - Signed in - Made sure syncing is on for:

  • Bookmarks
  • Credit cards
  • History
  • Add-ons
  • Logins and password
  • Options

- Added some add-ons, added some bookmarks - Customized the interface - Changed some Settings - Opened a Windows 10 VM - Installed Firefox 83 (so both computers have the same version) - Logged in with my Firefox account - Waited for the sync

So far I can see that my extensions are synced and my bookmarks. However there are some things that don't sync:

- Customization for controls, buttons and toolbars - Default search engine - Alternative search engines - Settings for "Firefox Data Collection and Use"

There might be more settings that don't sync, which I have not tested. Is this behavior expected? If so I might switch back to Chrome. Syncing only certain settings defeats the purpose of syncing, at least for me.

Also is there any list or information about which settings are syncing and which are not?

Hi:

Two questions:

1. I would like to block all cookies for all websites (at once, not one-by-one by website) and allow cookies only for websites identified as exceptions. I know how to enter the exception one-by-one, but could not figure out the rest. Is there a way to do this?

2. I entered 3 websites (one-by-one) to block them from storing cookies (in Manage exceptions). They show up on the list (under Manage Exceptions), but under Manage Data, these websites still stored cookies. Then I went to one of these websites and selected View Page Info>Permissions and selected blocking cookies. The website still stored cookies. How can one prevent websites that appear to be selected to block, to actually block storage of cookies? Either I am doing something incorrectly or this doesn't work.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Trying to access https://www.locast.org. but my location is blocked.

I want to add\change\edit a permission for the above website to allow.

I have previously blocked requests for my location in Permissions => Location => Settings. I have now unchecked this. I have deleted the relevant cookies using the sites shield menu. I am unable to get the site to prompt me to allow location nor can I manually add the site to the in Permissions => Location => Settings.

I expect this to be in about:config but no idea where.

How can I correct this?

Today at 14:07 I changed my email preferences and unsubscribed from all email types in my Firefox account.

At 5 hours later, at 19:36 I receive an email from Mozilla with the title "Sync your bookmarks, history and logins".

So either the email preferences does not work or the email does not respect the preferences I have set. Either way it's always extremely annoying when this happens and it leaves me wondering if Mozilla takes privacy seriously.

Even worse is, I already have sync set up (which doesn't work anyway as I have written about here).

Pictures attached as "proof" for those who are in doubt.
