Hello :-),

I am working on an data privacy tool on python3 over Selenium. One requirement is to track all outgoings connections/cookies over Firefox.

Please see the first attachment for my Firefox configuration. When I have a look at the network tab in Firefox there are still some forbitten connections (2nd picture). How can I allow all of them?

I am using a dedicated profile for that crawling.

Thx for your help.

I've been using PDFcreator for years. Just recently, when I print to PDF from Firefox, it has started producing PDFs that do not contain searchable text (ie where the text from the webpage becomes a raster image).

PDFcreator still works properly with all other software (including Chrome). Can anyone recommend a way I can make Firefox start behaving itself?

Thanks!

Recently I have been having issues with my laptop. So, I decided to set my Windows 10 laptop back to factory settings. After the successful factory settings, I downloaded the latest version of Firefox and tried logging into my Firefox account. For some odd reason, it wouldn't recognize my login username and password. So, I tried to reset my password. After resetting my password, I managed to log into my Firefox account but all my bookmarks disappeared. I tried to restore but all I see is today's date and no other previous restore (see screenshot).

I am extremely exhausted trying to figure out a way to get back my bookmarks as it has many years of bookmarks that I need to use back.

I would appreciate any help on this matter.

FF 72.0.1 for Windows. See if I can explain this problem. I migrated Chrome bookmarks to a new profile on my desktop. I cleaned up the migration bookmarks and saved to an html file for a backup. I also created a new profile on my laptop that I did attempt to sync with the desktop which was when I first noticed issues with the synced bookmarks/folders.

RIght now I have sync turned off on both machines and am concentrating only on the desktop. I deleted all the bookmarkbackups directory files and deleted places.sqlite and imported the saved html file to get the desktop where I want it. However, when I turn sync on (with sync turned off on the laptop) it adds folders and bookmarks, some of which were NOT there in the Chrome migration and some duplicates that I had created on the laptop. Deleting the WEAVE directory makes no difference. I don't know where this information is coming from, whether cache or ff backups, but I want to have a clean set of bookmarks, that I can sync to a clean laptop.

Can someone please tell me where this previously synced (some not) information is coming from so I can delete and start from scratch.

Firefox in Windows 10 will not play any audio produced from sites on the internet. Firefox internet audio works fine when I boot into Linux. All other browser that I use, Chrome, Opera, Windows (whatever it is called, I rarely use it) present no internet audio problems. Firefox is my default browser in both OSs, but I will have to move to an alternate until I can get this issue resolved. Thanks.

I've Firefox Browser, Delivered to me in a SoE. I have No (zero, nada none..) control over the rate at which the packaging team updates the Browser, or their competency in doing this.

Kudos to you for keeping me, the end user safe .. by way of updates even, however Please Please PLEASE!!! provide the end user a means to stop the mandatory end user integration update pop up window whinge !!!!

If I can not control your development pace, the effective skill set of the packaging team, or the rate at which they can keep pace with your updates, then please by god , please allow me, the end user to turn the update pop up window off, and make my browsing experience better! Maintain mandatory updates.. I don't care, nor can I control that... either. However I do have my hands all over your end user UI.

I do not wish however to be reminded almost hourly how and how UN-responsive, or crap my peers are. nor I do not want "mandatory end user action" UI update reminders every blinking minute an UI or email or system interface forces me to open another browser window... again some of which I have no control over.

I noticed, probably after the recent browser update, most videos will lag in full screen mode. The problem does not occur in Chrome, and when playing a video without full-screen.

For example. I'm watching a lecture and the teacher is going back and forth. During that he will freeze and lag, the audio works fine, than it continues. I also noticed that the effect can easily be caused by rewinding back for a few seconds.

Not sure if this is a my laptop, youtub's or the firefox problem.
