Like the title says, all of my logins and passwords are suddenly gone. I found a logins.json.corrupt in the profile folder, and tried renaming it to logins.json, but it didn't remember anything. Is there any way to get these passwords back? Or find out what the cause of this was? I lost some really valuable logins that I stupidly did not backup.

Very similar to posts in previous years that are archived and largely unanswered or not up-to-date.

I opened up my a Firefox session to find out I was logged out of sync and when I logged back in all my passwords where erased.

This has been stable for the last 10 months and Firefox has provided a reliable password archive with nice syncing features. However, this is a deal breaker, since I cannot loose the login credentials randomly.

No updates. No conscious logging out. No disregarding warnings etc.

Anyway to revert or retrieve?

Hello.

Up till recently it was possible to have the FF scrollbar width controlled by either a GTK theme, or by various extensions that existed. Recently this is no longer possible on both Firefox and Thunderbird and we are forced to accept a pencil thin scrollbar that someone has decided is 'the thing'.

As someone who suffers from visual impairment I have found this move to be a major pain as it is now almost impossible to get 100% scrolling accuracy as I have been accustomed to since forever. I don't need super large fonts or monochrome this and that, just simply what works when one cannot see properly any more.

I can only assume that you feel that anyone who is not perfectly sighted is beneath your concern and have decided to exclude us from use of your products. This is a shame and I do suggest that you could do yourselves some good by stepping back from this highly exclusive attitude.

I'd like to add search engines to my list, without having to find addons or extensions. This used to be possible in older version of firefox by editing one of the .json/.xml files but now doesn't seem to be the case.

If this isn't possible, is there a way to modify the firefox source to allow this? I hate to say it, but it's this sort of feature removal/deprecation that is slowly turning me away from firefox. It'd be really nice to have it back.

Since upgrading my iMac to Big Sur, I get an extra Firefox icon in my dock. Now, here's the strange part: it has a small screen on the icon at about 2:00. Even stranger: it connects to the website my wife has on her macbook. It gets stranger: the Firefox icon with the screen appears even if my Firefox app is off. And finally: the icon connects to her Safari app, not her firefox app. That is, when I click on the icon with the screen it shows me her Safari website.

I am at a loss.

After the latest release of Firefox, it is automatically forcing https on our site EquestrianCoach.com. We do not have a security certificate at this time (yes I know we need one and we are working on it). Therefore we get a "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page and no one can access the site. Even if you manually try to take out the "s" it directs right back to https. I heard Firefox does this if it detects a SSL, but again, we do not have one or never did for this site. I see other sites with no ssl work fine. Is there a work around to not have Firefox do this? All the legacy Firefox browsers work fine on our site. It was just with the last release it somehow seems to think we have one and force redirects. And to clarify, it isn't just on one computer. All members who have the new Firefox have this issue. Thank you for any assistance! It is greatly appreciated!

There is no option to turn off https-only mode in preferences under security. I am running Firefox on Kali Linux. I need to be able to access http sites. So I did the about:settings and set everything that was https-only to false. Yet I still get the "unable to connect" and when you click on the i icon it says "connection not secure" I know it is not secure and it does not need to be. Is there anyway to get the latest version of firefox to go to http sites? There are some important plugins I use with burpsuite and I don't want to have to use a different browser. I know what the documentation says but there is no https-only mode option.

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.
