I have a linux debian 11 o/s with up-to-date Firefox I don’t know which version at the moment it is whatever debian repo pushes down. I have 5 profiles on this particular computer with no previous issues. I decided to create another profile to be used for some test work and when I created it I then launched it and opened a few tabs to make sure it worked then closed. I planned on copying the profile files from another profile into this one so I went to the profile folder - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile.names

Once there I saw my other profiles but could not locate this one so I went back to an open browser where I had the about:profiles page open and decided to delete that new profile and start over I figured maybe I accidentally saved it to a different directory. I hit remove it and it gave me the box asking if I wanted to remove files I chose yes I then go back to - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox but folder firefox was gone with all of my profiles all that was left in .mozilla was - /home/user/.mozilla/extensions and - /home/user/.mozilla/systemextensionsdev. Both of these folders - “extensions” as well as “systemextensionsdev” are empty. I go to the local directory for each profile and the data is still there for each of the profiles - /home/user/.cache/mozilla/firefox/profile.name.

The recycle bin is empty. A system-wide search for the profiles comes up with just the ones in the .cache folder. Back at the about:profiles page any attempt to open the preexisting profile results in a prompt asking me to create a new profile. I still have the one profile open and the addons are not working correctly. I did a bookmark export on this profile and doing so generated the “firefox” folder that had disappeared plus a profile folder using the same name of this open profile - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox'profile.name - it created a profile folder for this open profile using the correct name.

Any ideas on how this happened? Can the local profiles still in .cache be used to somehow restore the full profiles?

There is no userChrome.css in my profile.

Yes, I searched for help. What I found was about userChrome.css to solve specific problems, but not what to do if it doesn't exist. Is userChrome still supported?

Thank you! Mark.

Hello,

Since recently the bookmark dialog has changed its behaviour, and to worse from my perspective. If I don't do anything for about three seconds, the dialog closes and the bookmark is saved to a place where I most likely don't want it to be saved. Is there a way to get rid of the three second time limit? Thanks!

It's not necessary to read further to answer my question. Bellow I'm going to give some criticism and express frustration about this new feature (or is it a bug?). The criticism is not directed towards the nice people here who give support to users who have problems.

I understand that developers get new ideas and want to put them into practice, but if you change an often used behaviour like this, I don't think it's user friendly to just change the behaviour without asking the user if he want's that behaviour. Personally I don't see how the automatically disappearing dialog helps me (it's very easy to click Esc if I change my mind about bookmarking a page), but I keep experiencing how it makes my browsing experience worse, as I often pause for a moment for example to think what name I'm going to give for the bookmark, or where am I going to place it.

In practice this change has wasted at least an hour of my time (to find an explanation and (in vain) a solution to fix the behaviour), made me annoyed, and based on the comments here and other places, made quite a few other people annoyed too.

Please, when you change the behaviour of Firefox in the future, before changing the behaviour for an individual user, ask him first if he even wants the change. For example show him a dialog where he is told that "we have this new feature where your familiar dialog keeps disappearing every three seconds for no reason so that you get the pleasure of invoking it again...and again...and again. If you want to have that feature, check the box on the left".

I deleted the files created by the install in the folder 'profiles'. When I copy my old firefox profile contents into that firefox profile folder, firefox does not pickup my bookmarks and extensions as I had hoped. Is it possible to get firefox to recognize my old profile contents? Thanks, Doug

The Bookmark menu used to open with ONE click. Now it assumes you're using the same bookmark, and if you want a different one, you have to click twice. I have many bookmark categories, and I usually have to click twice to get to the menu to choose a folder/location.

I looked for but couldn't find an OPTION for it to work as it used to, open with one click. I'm disappointed that I couldn't find this option. I hope the option to return to the way it used to work will be available in the next Firefox update.

Hello. For the past few days, I am unable to access the content of some websites. For example, Reddit seem to load but the page remains blank. This happens on other websites, where I am unable to login although the page displays correctly (an error message appears on one of them: "Please check the consistency of your URL").

This is quite annoying, especially because I cannot find anything related on the web. I use Firefox on POP OS 22.04.

Thanks. Cheers.

I am afraid of losing all my saved logins and passwords. I tried resetting the primary password on the lubuntu laptop but the method in the help article did not work.

How is it possible that the primary password changed on my desktop machine? Please help, I do not want to lose all my password as I do not remember them all and some of them were automatically generated by firefox.

Hello, This issue may be related with "[meta] Implement URL parser per URL Standard", opened 9 years ago(!), but updated only 1 month ago (bugzilla). If somehow applicable, just let me know that my issue is already being taken care. Thank you.

D&D a Firefox URL into Windows File Explorer, may fail. Just try it for yourself (Firefox for Windows, version 102):

Will fail (notice the additional folder created): D&D on this URL will fail

Will fail and may even create an invincible 0 byte file (Windows is unable to delete it...): D&D this URL will also fail

Won't fail: D&D this URL will *not* fail


I only noticed this wrong behavior in version 102.0 (Firefox 64-bit for Windows) but, as I use this D&D functionality quite often, I don't believe this problem to have occurred much before 101.x. Only tested it in Windows though (Windows 10 Pro - 21H2 19044.1766, 64-bit). This thus seems to be a BUG introduced in version 101.x or 102.0

By trial & error, I think I eventually found out what is leading the D&D to eventually fail: it's related with the web page title (i.e., the Firefox tab title). This behavior has nothing to do with the URL value itself.

When D&D an URL into File Explorer, the URL shortcut name is supposed to be created with the webpage title. However, Windows filenames have some unsupported characters: \ / : * ? ” <> |

So, I guess Firefox should first parse this title and remove all these unsupported characters (or replace them with, e.g., “-“), before assigning the title to the shortcut name (a .URL file). Which, as I understand it, is not happening anymore. I have not found any issue with the URL value itself.

In fact, the D&D result may vary, depending on the characters the webpage name includes.

If it contains a “/”, it will create one (or more) Windows folders before creating the URL shortcut. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “CAT5E Shielded 3/50μ Gold-Plated”, it will create a shortcut (with the correct link) in C:\my URL shortcuts folder\CAT5E Shielded 3\50μ Gold-Plated.URL Obviously, even though the URL content is right, this is not the expected behavior!

More troublesome can be a webpage title that contains a “:”, because it creates a 0-byte no extension file which sometimes (but not always) refuses to be deleted by Windows. E.g., if I D&D a webpage URL into “C:\my URL shortcuts folder”, with title “ShinobiHub – Article: How to Update”, it will create a zero-byte file in “C:\my URL shortcuts” folder with name “ShinobiHub – Article” (no extension). Trying to remove the file in File Explorer may display the error message: “Item not found. This is no longer located in <PATH>. Verify the item’s location and try again.”

[BTW, after some digging I find out how to remove the file: Just open a DOS window and type: del "\\?\C:\my URL shortcuts folder\ShinobiHub - Article " No need to restart or do anything else, just need to put \\?\ before the directory when using the del command. Also use the tab button to make sure the name is correct; sometimes a space is added at the end that can be easily missed.]

Strangely enough, a “Verified by: Cloudfare” (or something similar) is also display just below Firefox Url.

I’m not sure about the effect of other different unsupported file name characters. Anyway, this was tested in 2 different Windows computers, both with same faulty results. The same operation in Chrome works as expected.

Conclusion: This issue should be easy enough to find but I could not find any *recent* report on a similar issue. That makes me wonder… is this really a bug?... Please help. Thank you. Cecilio

Every time I try to sign into my Google account (including related sites like YouTube), I'm rerouted to the Microsoft sign in page for my old university, and can't log in. This only happens on Firefox, if I switch to another browser then there's no problem.

So far I've tried:

  • Deleting all of my history including my cache and cookies.
  • Once I'm at the site I'm rerouted to, going into History, right-clicking on the url, and clicking "Forget this site."

Neither have worked. Any suggestions appreciated!
