after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

Whenever I open a new window, it starts in a certain standard size (at least in Firefox 77). In earlier versions it would always open "maximised". So for me this behaviour changed (not sure exactly in which version it changed). Since I use my browser almost always with maximised windows, I have to maximise manually all the time now, and that is inconvenient. How can I get the old behaviour back? Preferably I would be able to establish a size I like (maximised, or otherwise as big a size as I set), and then save those settings for the future. Alternatively, I would also be happy if Firefox remembers the size of the window I closed latest. Is there any way to accomplish this?

uBlock origin (possibly other addons) installs but does not work - Firefox 68.8.0ESR on Debian 10

I'm running a brand new install of Debian. Initially the install comes with Firefox version 68.7.0 ESR. After setting up my Firefox preferences, I tried installing uBlock origin. The install seemed to go fine, but I noticed that the uBlock button does not appear to the right of the address bar by the bookmarks/sidebars/firefox account buttons. I went on Youtube to check to see if it was actually blocking ads and it is not blocking. When I open the addons page to check if it is there (Tools > Addons) it shows uBlock origin as an enabled addon.

I opened synaptic to see if there is an upgrade version available and saw that there was (Version 68.8.0 ESR). I went ahead and installed the upgrade, but there is no improvement, still seeing ads on Youtube. I removed it and reinstalled, but also no improvement. I've been searching google for answers but other than references to the issues last year with addons being broken I am not finding anything helpful.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Your help is appreciated.

My Folders Pane has entirely disappeared from Gmail. If I move my cursor to the left of the screen I DO NOT get a double arrow that allows me to retrieve the pane. I am NOT missing individual folders; I am missing the whole pane. I attach screenshot.

The folders pane is NOT missing from a different email app I sometimes use - Fastmail

My gmail account is working in Chrome on my android phone and android tablet. The problem is only in Mozilla on this computer.

I am running Linux Mint 19.2 Tina with Ubuntu 18.04 base bionic, Cinnamon 4.2.3. Restarting the computer and Firefox does not help.

Any help you can provide will be much appreciated. Maybe the answer is to uninstall and then reinstall Firefox and Thunderbird? Would prefer something easier.

Thanks!!!!

YouTube videos (both embeded and on website) seem to load (I can see thumbnails when I hover cursor over timeline) but will throw "An error occurred. Please try again later." when I click play.

Youtube debug info: "errorCode": "fmt.decode", "errorMessage": "An error occurred. Please try again later.", "wr": "GENERIC_WITHOUT_LINK"

This also happens in Private Browsing and Safe mode (addons disabled) in Firefox 75.0 and 76.0.1 (different user profiles) This issue does not occur in other browsers I have installed (Chromium, Iridium, Google C, and Pale Moon)

Everything was working fine a few hours ago, I have made no hardware, software or config changes.


EDIT: Just noticed the edit button, added a cropped screenshot of the issue.

I can't watch Amazon Prime videos using Firefox 76.0 - 32 bit on Linux Mint 19.3 - 32bit. I do appreciate that this became a long standing battle, judging by the archived material but has the towel now been thrown in? Root cause seems to be that the Widevine plugin has been withdrawn from Firefox and that being so, there must be a good reason.

When the question was archived with a tick was placed on the best answer. That the Widevine plugin can no longer be added from within Firefox, suggests to me that it is now game over. Am I being too pessimistic?

I don't want work-arounds that never seem to last long in this area, ideally I am looking for a permanent fix on the lines that Google will co-operate and promise not to move the goal-posts without supplying the information needed to Mozilla in order to update Firefox first, so that the Widevine plugin can be made available once again and all be covered under Linux updates.

An outright refusal in the above assessment, if correct, would at least demonstrate that the matter was political and that the solution to it is necessarily political too. Something that could likely gain traction in Europe at least.

Any reply welcome, thanks.

I've been a loyal Firefox user for many years. I've never given up on FF regardless the compatibility, stability and performance issues it had. I trusted my 'pal' Firefox ... until recently when i noticed it silently removed a non-mainstream news site from the Top Site list. That broke my heart ...

The question is, can you explain yourself?

Restore old version of Firefox and profile

I was running just "regular" Firefox on my Windows laptop. Yesterday my help desk had me upgrade to Firefox Extended Support Release to install a corporate email security certificate. I did not know when I installed this version of Firefox that it would overwrite my existing browser, and when it did, I lost all of my add-ins, extensions, bookmarks, etc. I'm hoping to be able to restore my old profile with all of the existing data I had. If I have to "downgrade" to regular Firefox I think that's fine since I just needed the ESR to install the security cert and that's complete now.

I looked on the about:profiles page and I have two other profiles, default and june19 (I presume the latter is from June 2019?), but I don't know how to determine which one is the preferred one. When I clicked Launch profile in new browser, it instructed me to create a new profile to protect my information and I hesitated to do that because I'm trying to restore an old profile, not create a new one. In case you can't tell, I'm not an advanced software user, so give instructions like you would to a 5-year-old or your grandma... lol. Thanks in advance!

IIRC, in v60.x ESR the icon at top used to display bookmarks by default, and you could also look at history. Perhaps I'm remembering it wrong (It's the icon that looks like 3 books with the 4th leaning to the left.

In v68.8.0esr which is now installed it shows "Recent Highlights". I want to get the old behavior back. The following will remove the recent highlights (except the title "recent highlights"). But the bookmarks are not shown unless I click on Bookmarks.

#appMenu-library-recentHighlights { display: none !important; }

How do I get the old behavior back?

I know I can add an extra icon (display bookmarks menu), but I'd still need the other one to access history. Perhaps if there were a History icon and a bookmarks icon, that would do as I don't use sync, and there is already the downloads icon, and I don't need the Pocket List.

I use mostly Chrome browser but it's such a resource, memory and storage hog I've been using FF more. However, while spell check technically works, it's simply terrible and frustrating to use. With Chrome, I hardly had to add words to my dictionary while with FF/TB many essential basic words are flagged.

I read some other posts where FF flags most words, that's not my gripe. The dictionary is pathetic. I can't even find any add-ons/extensions that provide a greater vocabulary.

Are there some tips and tricks besides adding words one can use here?

I'm running Firefox 68.9.0 ESR, and it keeps whining about an update being available. I don't care, because every time I update, one of the extensions I use every day is disabled without my permission. How do I get firefox to shut up about it once and for all? In other words, where is the "do not check for updates" command hidden, or, how else can I shut this thing up? I have, in the past, liked firefox, but it has, over the last few years, supported less and less of features I use daily, at a minimum, many times/day for most.

So how do I shut these annoying alerts about an update I have NO intention of installing off? "You can't" is not a valid answer. Nor is "just upgrade and lose half of the stuff (again) that you use all the time." Sorry if I sound angry, but these constant annoyances (and Thunderbird is doing the same---so same question for it here) are really getting on my nerves.

I have Firefox almost working the way it should. Still can't click in a bookmark toolbar bookmark and then click on "add bookmark here" like I could. That was one of those I used about 10--30 times per day, depending on what I was working on.

Thanks.

I have Firefox 68.9.0ers (64bit) on antiXLinux-19. My microphone seems to work. It's not muted. I can record my voice with cheese or recordmydesktop.

However, when I go to https://meet.jit.si/ or https://www.onlinemictest.com/ I get the error that the microphone cannot be found. That means I do not even get the prompt to allow to use my microphone. In other words, MediaDevice.getUserMedia() throws NotFoundError.

With https://meet.jit.si/ I do get prompt for video, and video is working just fine.

I have the same problem with Firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).
