Apparently Firefox doesn't allow the Vanguard website to "Remember this computer" to avoid having to do two factor authentication every time I log on. The Vanguard rep says this is a pattern with Firefox, as opposed to other browsers. Note: I only have "Enhanced Tracking Protection" selected in Firefox.

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

Good afternoon, We have a large quantity of PC's that we need to add a Pop-Up exception to for Firefox.

Is there a way to add this desired website pop-up exception via a script remotely? I know where to go to manually add a Pop-Up exception (Settings/Privacy & security/Allowed Website Pop-Up's). But is there a way to script this? Can this even be locked with a PrefLock line in a Mozilla.cfg file? I did a little digging and did not see anything. That would be ideal.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Please note that the remote machines are NOT a part of a domain. But I have complete connectivity to them as an administrator on the same network.

I had this issue and was not certain where the problem occurs, either the browser, my computer, or the applications involved. I could not find the problem by googling a solution so I tried to isolate the source of the problem. The images are not the issue; I can move and view them using a variety of apps. I shutdown and restarted windows 10, cleared cookies and data, and tried another browser (Chrome was downloaded and opened as a guest) . That's where I finally had some success. I was able to login to eBay and upload photos. I believe something is corrupted with FF. Has this type of problem been noticed and resolved before?

Hi, I made the mistake of selecting a checkbox in a browser popup window that I thought was just asking me if I didn't want to be reminded about something everytime I tried to do it ... but it seems that's not the case, and unfortunately I cannot find the setting to reverse the decision, and it is stopping me from deleting wordpress plugins from the wordpress admin of my site ... when I now try to select the plugin "delete" link, it is unresponsive ... can you think of which thing I might have selected in what popup window of the browser, and how I could reverse this? I tried a few things but nothing worked.

So, on Windows 10 I noticed that when I click the History tab I see Show All History and when I click that the only option I get is Today..very odd.

On my Windows 7 Home Premium when I do the same steps I have access to "Today", "Yesterday", "Last 7 days" and various recent months.

This is what I'm accustomed to and was hoping to get input on why I only get Today option on my Windows 10 computer.

Looking forward to your reply...

We have around 1000 Firefox installations on our government organization, all installed via the Firefox MSI installer. Unfortunately, we came late to realize that the Firefox ESR would be a much more suitable product, compared to the normal Firefox branch.

Now, some years ago we would simply mass uninstall the normal Firefox and mass install the (latest) ESR version and all would be well. Problem is that we have to keep existing profiles (including passwords/bookmarks etc), something that is not supported in the latest Firefox builds.

Can anyone offer some advice/"hacks" to accomplish this? Note that whatever we'll do, we'll have to do it automatically, we lack the man-power to do this manually on a system by system basis...

Thanks in advance for any information provided.

Two questions re: the forced update from 78.15 to 91.

1: Will all bookmarks, and all other settings be retained? Is there a form of recommended backup in case of problems (I currently use MozBackup, still)

2: Will the "Bookmark Tab Here" add-on work with 91? I need a user friendly bookmarking system, which was the reason I stayed with ESR in the first place.
