I have found a few pages about address rewriting; how do I disable them all ? - searching single word into google (type "keyw" in about:config to disable it) - hiding http when not using https - trying to add "www" and ".com" around a single word when the word did not resolve

I consider most of them as security issues for various reasons.

And when editting an URL, I want firefox to keep showing the full url as it was invoqued; not add https randomly, or removing http other days. And the more I disable some, the more new ones appear.

hello, does anyone know how to create a setting to automatically save history for just one site, when you have your settings to delete all other history upon closing firefox?

This one site i use constantly (my email program), and don't want to have to go through the cumbersome process of logging in yet again and again, and i trust it so i don't feel the need for that one's history to be deleted.

thanks!

Cannot Sign Out of Connected Device on Manage Device page

I often hop between Linux distro installations, and I generally use the same hostname for a single computer when I do reinstalls. I have had a computer called 'sparrow' that I've signed into Firefox several times on across OS changes, and they all appear in the 'Send Tab to Device' menu that I use frequently. Since none of these devices exist anymore, they're completely useless.

I've gone to the Manage Devices page where you can sign out of any devices that are currently logged into my Firefox account, but clicking sign out on 'sparrow' does nothing. It stays in the menu, and no entries from the tabs menu are removed. I've tried this from all my computers.

I've thought of maybe downloading all my firefox sync data and completely recreating my Firefox account, but I'm hoping there might be a simpler fix.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Closed tabs keep reappearing, either spontaneously or on Firefox restart. Trashed the session files, emptied the trash, even restarted the computer to no avail. It will even create duplicate tabs of these same five tabs that were closed days ago. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

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?

By fixing the very first option you come across as soon as you go into General Under "Startup" The setting called "Restore previous Session"

Usually, a checkbox, is a boolean ON OFF.

Once more, this leaks data. For instance, logging into my webmail rebooting the machine, next time i launch firefox it spawns the same session again. This contradicts with the very first option under "General" -> Startup

If this was a public machine, some one would now have access to my email.

It seems that this is OS specific. But really, i don't care. My complaint stays the same. The option is broken, and firefox leaks data therefor. I no longer trust Firefox. This sort of stuff is not done deliberately.

Once more. perhaps bit logic is too complicated for you UI designers and a quantum gyro is more to your liking? Cause this is NOT normal.

Hi,

I have "Default Bookmark Folder Extension" enabled in the Add-ons Manager of Firefox (78.15.oesr). It now defaults to Other Bookmarks folder Instead of prompting me for various previously created folders. I have not knowingly changed any bookmark related settings. I was able to bookmark whichever folder that I prefer just two days ago.

Default Bookmark Folder Extension - Allows you to choose the default bookmark location folder and quickly bookmark pages via a dedicated icon.

Any idea how to solve this issue? Thanks.

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.
