I am unable to restore my user-data (bookmarks, passwords, search suggestions, etc) after firefox update. I tried what is outlined in this article. But it didn't help. None of the profiles in "about:profiles" had my previous data. Can anyone please help me in recovering my data?

I've been trying to enable two-step authentication, but Firefox doesn't recognize any code provided by Google or Microsoft Authenticator. I also tried to input the code manually but the error is the same: "invalid code". And I did a search and found that other people are having the same problem.

When will this be fixed?

I just lost a website I wanted to view because Firefox did a background update and I cannot find an option where Firefox downloads the update, but gives me the choice when to install it. (I don't have the link and get buried by ads when i try to google the website.) EVERY TIME AN UPDATE HAPPENS, IT ALWAYS STRIKES AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT! (Like when I'm working from home!)

THIS IS MY and I repeat MY computer. I CHOOSE WHERE AND WHEN THINGS HAPPEN. I need to find a way to FORCE FIREFOX TO WAIT UNTIL I AM READY FOR DOING THE UPDATE!!! Automatic installing of updates IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Downloading the update is fine, but I NEED THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE WHEN IT INSTALLS THE UPDATE!!!

Mozilla, you have NO RIGHTS IN MY COMPUTER, UNLESS I GIVE THEM TO YOU. I've been using Firefox for over a decade (and Thunderbird). I really don't want to change to something new - and forget ever going back to Windows (I DESPISE MICROSOFT!). Don't go the way of Microsoft - remember, IT'S OUR COMPUTER! We need the ability to install ON OUR SCHEDULE AND DON'T TRY TO FORCE US INTO A FALSE STEREOTYPE!

System - adequate hardware running Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Firefox 75.0 64 bit.

I am writing a C program, which needs to start several firefox windows. The problem is: I need to kill them later, so I need the process id. So I started each of them (via fork and exec) with the argument "-new-instance", but get the error "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." when a firefox process was already running (because there is just one allowed, I guess).

Is there a way to fix this problem, or at least get the pid of the process firefox connects to if i don't start it with "-new-instance"? By the way: It just has to work on one computer, so I can adjust settings etc. System: Arch Linux (Manjaro)

Thanks for your help

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.

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.

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Single clicking the URL bar selects the entire contents, making it behave unlike any text in web forms or, frankly, pretty much anywhere else in the system. There used to be a pair of config options described two year ago here to control this behavior, but that solution no longer works.

I'm sure the developers believed in good faith they were saving me time, but making the URL (and Search) bars behave differently from every other text box on the system, in and out of the browser, is not helpful. I'm forever having to correct for this erroneous feature, and it's getting old.

Is there any way in 76.0 to make the URL bar behave like other text boxes on the (Linux) system, or must all platforms (mis)behave like Windows?

I'm using Fedora Linux with gnome. I installed Firefox Nightly according to the mozilla wiki which basically says to extract the tar.bz2 in the /home/ folder. When I open firefox from the extracted folder it launches Nightly. In the right click menu on the Nightly icon on the bottom bar there is no "add to favorites". Surely we're not expected to browse to the folder every time we want to launch Nightly. How do I add it to favorites so it stays on the bottom bar?

A webpage on our internal company domain ("") errors out with "Error SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". If I switch to private browsing the same page works. The page also works with all other browsers without issue. If I "reset firefox", the page starts working again - even after firefox sync has re-installed all my add-ons. After some indeterminate amount of time (weeks) the page starts to error out again. This problem occurs on Firefox 75 on Ubuntu 18.04 as of now.

I'm at a total loss as to how to even begin to debug this - any pointers on where to start looking? As I mentioned the webpage that errors out the only page on an intranet so I cannot share the URL.

Whenever I start Firefox, I get the usual "Sorry. We just need ..." and leaves me no option but to restart. I tried refreshing, removing the profile folder, the whole .mozilla folder, uninstalling and reinstalling, nothing works. If I change user on the same computer, everything works as normal. Can you suggest something?

Setting up a new computer, have enabled syncing in both Firefox and Multi-User Containers, everything syncs fine with Firefox, but my settings from MUC refuses to sync.

From the sync log:

1588437492041 Sync.Engine.Extension-Storage ERROR Syncing @testpilot-containers: request failed: Error: HTTP 507 Insufficient Storage: Resource access is forbidden for this user (Collection maximum size exceeded (209440 > 204800 Bytes).)(resource://services-common/kinto-http-client.js:2771:5) JS Stack trace: ServerResponse@kinto-http-client.js:2771:5 processResponse@kinto-http-client.js:2925:13

Since I am using Temporary Containers, I think MUC is syncing every new tmp* container, thus the need for how much to sync is growing each time I open a new tab, and now it has hit the limit.

  • Is there a setting so that MUC doesn't sync certain containers (such as tmp*, as these will never be used again)?
  • Can I manually purge tmp* from MUCs sync? By editing some database or file?
  • Is there some other solution?
