Whenever I maximize (not fullscreen) my Firefox a white border surrounds my windows expect on the top. It even hides my taskbar. I already reinstalled it and tried to delete the remaining files in C:\Program Files but without any success. My Windows is 1909 and Firefox 74.0. Maybe some of you experienced the same problem and know how to fix it. Thanks for you help :)

Hello.

I have a question. In which folder is my Firefox browsing history stored, please?

I ask because I want to create a kind of "browsing diary", and tried to export my browsing history via Mozilla History View. But it couldn't find the folder with my browsing history.

I'm working from a WINDOWS 7 64 Bit computer, and my Firefox version is Firefox 74.0 64 Bit. With those specifications, where do I look for the folder with my browsing history?

Thanks in advance for any answers, and have a great Sunday!

Hello, for some reason my firefox has utterly broke. i was running a slightly older version, but if it aint broke dont fix it right? 2 days ago everything worked fine, but then it simply stopped loading videos.

I tried the suggested "fixes" i could find by searching

clear cookies and cache- didnt work

safe mode - didnt work

refresh firefox - didnt work

new profile -didnt work

disable hardware acceleration - didnt work

disable firefox enhanced tracking - didnt work.

When they all failed I uninstalled my outdated version and downloaded the latest 77.0.1 version, this is a fresh install with zero add ons and zero stuff carried over from the previous install, but still no videos will work in firefox. they work fine in other browsers but depending on the site one of the following happens in firefox.

"No video with supported format and MIME type found"

"there was an error loading or playing the video"

" Unfortunately, your browser does not support video playback."

simply a black box where the video is suppose to be.

or I can see the thumbail but the video itself will not load or play.

I asked on reddit and uploaded a "about:support" log Log

and they are stumped

Why does sync not preserve separate windows with their tabs, but instead has a jumble of the tabs all together?

I had a number of separate tabs in a few different windows (search subjects) and the machine I was working on would not boot any longer. To get this research back, I am using Sync - but none of the original windows was preserved. Instead there is just a long list of all of the tabs I had open across all the windows I had open. Why does Sync not preserve the separate windows? With well over a hundred tabs open, this makes recovering/accessing this information very tedious - as all the tabs have to be opened individually, and then sorted into separate windows again, to be bookmarked in their search subject categories/windows! Was this just an oversight, or is it technically not possible to preserve separate windows in Sync?

If it is technically not possible to preserver multiple windows of tabs in Sync, it would be much more workable if it were possible to mark these tabs in Sync to re-open them, rather than have to open them individually or all of the tabs at once from that other machine. Thanks!

PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

So, please inform me what happened with ver. 74.0 ? By ver. 74.0 is no more supported some older security protocols which might have the above website, or this is a bug by the new ver. 74.0 ? Please inform me how this issue can be fixed ?

Hi,

I am trying to configure PKI based authentication and encryption system in my organization using Hardware token. I was able to install my hardware token feitan ePass2003 Auto in privacy->security device. I am able to see my certificates under view certificate after entering my password for private key. After research on internet, came to know that Applet based client authentication is obsolete and hence i have configure my token in Firefox. The next step i.e Authentication page is where i have got stuck up. Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page. I could not get hold of any library of java script for access to token through Firefox. Any guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks

Just recently when I am on yahoo mail, I randomly get logged off. When I try to log back in, I have to change my password to succeed. I am running out of ideas for password as I have changed it dozens of times. This did not occur immediately after an update. Just out of curiosity, I did system restore to undo the last ff update, but still happened either way. I went thru deleting all cookies, stored passwords and cleared browser history. None of this helped. Virus scans showed negative. I have called att/yahoo tech support and they could not fix this. I have opened my mail in IE and do not have this problem using that browser. But come, I hate IE. So I have windows 7 professional. Not sure of all the pertinent system info needed but appreciate any suggestions.

How to remove a firefox account from a profile without deleting the account + mozilla login bug

I have created a new profile from a copy of an existing profile.

The old profile is synced using OldProfileSyncEmail@etc as the email.

I don't want to sync the new profile. I want to remove the account from the sync nag box on the new profile, but I want to keep the account for use with the old profile.

=====================

Mozilla login bug:

I use another email address as login to mozilla pages: EmailForFirefoxPages@etc. This login is in Firefox 'logins & passwords"., with a different password.

I don't want to use my sync emails (which should be PRIVATE.) for forums, addons, bug reporting etc!

When I try to login to mozilla pages, the login box prepopulates with OldProfileSyncEmail@etc.

It stays prepopulated after I click "use another account".

It does not offer the correct email as an alternative, even after I DELETE the pre-populated email. (MOSTLY - one time it did???)

When I manually type in EmailForFirefoxPages@etc and click continue, the password box is STILL prepopulated with the WRONG PASSWORD - for OldProfileSyncEmail@etc. Which is NOT the password in Logins and Passwords for EmailForFirefoxPages@etc.

=========================

ACTIONS TAKEN:

I deleted the OldProfileSyncEmail@ login from logins&passwords, now the moz login box prepopulates with the correct (only) login. (But if I do that on my synced accounts, the sync won't be able to log in!??).

The sync nag box is still telling me to reconnect to the deleted sync email.

===========================

ACTIONS WHICH CANNOT BE TAKEN:

Delete the account. (It is used by other profiles to sync.)

============================

QUESTIONS:

How do I fix the ff login box in my old profile where I CANNOT delete the login.

How do I get rid of the old profile's address in the sync nag in my new profile.

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Have the settings listed here been discontinued?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Browser.urlbar.restrict.tag

I still have those entries in my prefs.js to specify my preferred keys. This used to work back in the day, but now my chosen keys are ignored, and only the built-in defaults seem to apply.

Have these settings been moved to different keys, or is it no longer possible to over-ride the defaults at all?

why does firefox require a separate folder from it web link? This is maddening; I need to save many shortcuts for medical research. The ability of saving numerous single files in a folder is absolutely essential to my work. I find firefox terribly inefficient and useless without a solution to this situation...

I would appreciate specific simple answers to this issue. Saving to a hidden sidebar is not the answer and not a helpful solution. Sorry to be so critical; however, 'firefox seems to be so preoccupied with constant minor "tinkering" updates and not address key issues such as this...rjk
