Once again Firefox has decided to take over and change all my settings! I had finally managed to prevent it updating, as each and every time I had to reinstall all my setting and extentions from scratch. Today, it decided to clear all my preferences and change itself to its own default settings. OK, so I can change my profile option, except all three are using the same defaults: I appear to have lost all my settings and extensions entirely. OK, I'll copy from my backup, but once again the three backup profiles are being overwritten with the defaults. Even my third backup of last March overwrites to the defaults! How and why is Firefox managing to keep overwriting my defaults to its own preferred settings? How do I stop it doing this and regain my own preferences?

I also tried Sync and now I am getting bookmarks from over five years ago! And once again my settings are changing to the defaults. Surely a Sync should overwrite with the current bookmarks and settings not just keep adding more and more. I am now in a right mess again. Back to losing everything with updates. I am a great believer in the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' mentality, but Firefox has broken itself and is refusing to allow me to change to how it used to be! How do I restore my own preferences and prevent Firefox from changing them to what it wants.

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

As the title says, I cannot get MP4 files to play in Firefox, which renders several websites unusable. These sites work in Edge just fine, but I cannot get them to work in my preferred browser. Everything is up to date, and I have all the codecs I could ever need installed, as well as the Windows N Media Feature Pack. The browser has been tested several times in troubleshooting mode, and I've even gone as far as running Windows in safe mode with networking to try to isolate the issue. I cannot get it to work at all. This is the 2nd device I've had this issue on, and it's driving me up a wall.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

08/13/22 = Missing Firefox icon on taskbar

I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,

 -- Lucy

For the past year or so i have run into certain fields that will not accept a paste, whether by right click or Ctrl-v, and the behavior is consistent every time i try on that specific website. For example, a payment section of our utilities where though i can Ctrl-v my routing number (also it can be filled by what i can describe as a saved autofill - when you click in the field and the entry appears just below), but i can not paste my account number into the account space by either method (right click or Ctrl-v - nor does anything show below the field when one clicks in it).

I have always presumed that this is an intended behavior by whomever coded the webpage for security, but i just plain old find it annoying. Any chance i am correct in that it is a coding option these days, and if so, is there any way to break it?

Thank you!

I turned off Firefox updates because I'm sick and tired of having to download a new version at least once a week. So now I face a different problem. Every time I turn on Firefox I'm greeted by this annoying, unwanted pop-up spam message:

https://i.imgur.com/qFtXPXr.jpg (also see: attached image)

I want to disable this. I do not want to update, and I do not want to be reminded to update. Please don't waste both your and my time by replying "but you have to update". No I don't. I have nothing sensitive on this PC so even if I got infected by a virus or whatever because it's not the newest version, nothing bad will happen to me. At least nothing I consider as bad as having to update every single week. If there is no solution possible, I will simply stop using Firefox and use a different web browser instead. Thanks.

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. Also, I've checked the 2 relevant items in about:config an they are enabled. How do I get the autofill to start working again?

I've worked with Firefox for several years, and had it opening maximized. I recently manually resized the Firefox window to facilitate some work in which I needed some other windows visible. However, now I can't get Firefox to open maximized. Instead, it opens a window going from the left edge of my screen (see the first image below) about a third of the width of the monitor, and it is showing the double box icon in the upper right corner indicating that the computer "thinks" it is in full screen. If I click that double box, the window immediately shifts to the right edge of the screen, occupying a space about a third of the monitor from the right edge, and shows a single box in the upper right corner of the window. If I click that single box, the window finally does expand to full screen, showing a double box in the upper right corner. I've tried all the manipulations I've seen concerning starting screen size (such as going to the shortcut icon properties and indicating the that the program should start "maximized") but I'm still getting this same behavior. Any thoughts? (I'm running Windows 11, with the latest version of Firefox.)

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

it's extremely annoying to have to stop what i'm doing and play "lets find the active tab" when i have tons of youtube videos qued in open tabs. in opera, the logic is there out of the box, but in firefox, it doesn't exist. why such logic wouldn't exist is beyond me, but i see this as an annoying problem that needs fixed. i want to simply glance up at the tabs and see which one is playing without having to spend time digging through the open tabs to find the one that's playing or having to freakin memorize which one it was i don't have time for that.

i followed the guide in this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1291998 i did exactly everything as instructed but it did absolutely nothing, no change at all.

Idk why but sometimes firefox just doesn't prompt to generate secure password, I even have to download some extensions to generate secure password (Secure Password Generator) meaning more secure issues.

My guess is that you guys probably hardcoded something like {if "type: password" then prompt}, but it's still partly fault at developers too for bringing these huge chunks of javascript.

In screenshot there's element examaple in which i input password but no prompt whatsoever.

OS - Ubuntu22 Firefox - Default firefox on ubuntu22 (Mozilla Firefox 103.0.1)

Use case - 1. Custom profile folder (named prof1) contains pref.js and chrome folder with custom css file. 2. prof1 is created in -> "/customData/profiles/prof1" 3. The folder "/customData" has full rwx permissions and is owned by $USER (not by root)

Output -> 1. When launching firefox mentioning the profile -> "$ firefox --profile /customData/profiles/prof1"

The browser does not load, but there is an error box saying Profile Missing Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible.


Questions -> 1. Is it possible to load firefox profile from root directory ? 2. If custom profile folder is created in "/home", then it is launching and working perfectly. How is this possible when the permissions and owner is same as the one in "/customData"

I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern

  3. 3) I followed the instructions and tried to imported the HTML file from the thumb drive into the newly installed Firefox on the new Windows 11 laptop.
  4. 4) I got the message "file is empty" when I pressed open so the import did not work as advertised. I looked at the HTML file on the thumb drive and all my bookmarks were there, so the file was not empty.
  5. 5) What do I do to get the newly installed Firefox on my Windows 11 laptop to read/recognized the HTML file I created and to successfully import my bookmarks?????
