I add a bookmark and place it in a suitable folder. I can close Firefox and the bookmark is there when I restart Firefox.

I close down Firefox then restart Windows 10. The newly added bookmark is gone.

What's happening?

It's especially annoying because saving/restoring bookmarks is useless as it loses all bookmark ordering in the various folders I use.

When ever I press 'b' or 'B' (B with caps lock on), a new tab is opened with the page that I am currently in. This is really annoying as I am not able to use the shortcut of inserting new cell below in Jupyter Notebook.

I am not able to find any ways to edit the shortcuts of firefox. Any help would be appreciated.

FireFox 70.0.1, Windows 7 pro 32-bit.

A year or two ago I found that I couldn't get FireFox (then an earlier version) to play any of the music samples on Amazon. All attempts to fix this failed, so I switched to Chrome for a time, which work fine for this application.

Chrome, however, has developed other issued, so I came back to FireFox, in the version listed above.

And I come to find out that it has the same problem as the old version. It will not play any of the sound samples on the Amazon.com site. I click on the "play " button, and the circle goes round and round, but nada.

FireFox doesn't have any problem with sound on any other site I visit, including youtube, hulu, spotify, Google play, and various others too numerous to mention. But on Amazon: nada.

  • I went here: https://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test/ and checked all available file formats. FireFox supports them all, except for .caf -- which shouldn't be an issue, since Amazons samples are MP3.
  • I have checked to assure that media.mediasource.webm.enabled is set to "true" -- doesn't matter what it's set to,
  no sound samples on Amazon.
  • I have tried turning "hardware acceleration" off and on; still no sound samples on Amazon.
  • I tried FireFox in "safe" mode -- still no sound samples on Amazon.
  • I went to Microsoft and downloaded the "Media Feature Pack"; attempted to install, and was told that this
  installation "doesn't apply to your system".

Still no sound samples on Amazon.

A web search seems to indicate that this has been a problem with FireFox since at least 2015.

Does anybody have a REAL fix for this problem (e.g., one that actually WORKS)?

I'd really hate to have to go back to Chrome.

Thanks.

Ran into this in developing code for a report that gets regularly printed out.

In Firefox 50.0.2 the following bit of CSS worked

@media print {

  .page-counter::after {
     counter-increment: page;
     content: "Page " counter(page);
  }

}

In my table it will display "Page 1", "Page 2", etc.

But in Firefox 70.0.1 and 72.0.1 what happens is that on the first page it says "Page 3" (or whatever the total count is) and the following pages will just say "Page".

Is this a known issue with some workaround handling?

Guten Morgen,

meine Passwörter sind plötzlich weg, ich möchte keinen Brauser der die Passwörter vergisst. Warum passiert dies immer wieder?  

Es sollte eine sehr einfache Rückhohkung geben und nicht so ein umständliches Suchen nach den vorhandenen Passwörtern und der Rückholung!!!

Ich habe ein umfangreiche Internetseite von über 30 Domain etc. wie soll ich da die ganzen

Passwörter merken!!!

Es ist ein Unding, wenn Firefox plötzlich die Passwörter nicht anzeigt, so ist dies eine Stundenlange Arbeit!!!

Ich bin sehr unzufrieden mit Firefox

Although I love Mozilla and I am using it for decades now, I find it very frustrating the lack of password protection security. I cannot understand why Mozilla, the browser that aims to be the most secure for its users, cannot have a system similar to Chrome that requires user login before revealing stored passwords.

Whoever gets access on my computer can easily get all saved passwords - which might include banks/IRS/email, etc. It is even worse on the phone app.

This can be a major reason to stop using Mozilla Thank you

I use Hotmail/Outlook email. Lately, I've noticed that when I click on an email link and FFX is already open, FFX "times out" on the second link. I have to close FFX and click the link again, so that FFX is brought up from "square one," and the link opens normally. Why can't I just open a new tab for each new link without having to close FFX?

I use a calibrated monitor profile on my laptop. In About:config, I've set color management mode to 1, and I've enabled ICC v4 (even though my monitor profile is v2), but colors are still consistently oversaturated in firefox. They look the correct in Chrome like they did in Lightroom. The colors look similar or the same in Firefox as if I apply my monitor profile to an image without converting color spaces.

I've tried a clean reinstall of Firefox, I've tried putting the path to my calibrated profile in About:config, but nothing changes.

I want to bookmark 10 selected history pages. I selected them, and right-click gives me the context menu as shown on the attached screen shot. But selecting "Bookmark Pages" does not work. Only individual pages selected this way will bookmark. And the option there "Open all in tabs" works fine, and I can then bookmark the 10 open tabs. But that wastes my time and bandwidth, and supposing I want to bookmark hundreds of history pages? Opening them all in tabs would break the machine.

There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.
