I had to swap out my hard drive the other day without being able to save any data from Firefox. When the new disk was reloaded from the old one the user names were not made the same as with the old disk. When i use Firefox and save a password it says it has been saved but when I use the same site again the passwords don't fill in. When I look at the passwords via the passwords settings there is nothing there. Can you tell me how to get passwords to work please? Thanks John

Websites look extremely ugly because of the white borders surrounding icons. I've tried using CSS code I found on Reddit from posts that - I think - are related to my issue, but they proved fruitless.

What CSS/Setting do I have to disable to get rid of this?

I'm a long-time Firefox user (I probably came here straight from Netscape!) but lately, I'm starting to see tons of issues, often after every update.

Things that might help: 1. I'm mostly a Windows user, although I have a Mac. I have a LOT of Windows boxes (don't ask) - a couple of work laptops, some private laptops, a couple of micro-desktops that are connected to TVs and so on. This might be relevant, because they're all synced.

2. My profile is pretty old - over 10 years.

3. I've entirely disabled any ad-blockers or add-ons.

So issues happening on multiple machines in the last 24 hours: eBay. Over the last few days, when logging into eBay, if I do a search, I can't change any of the filters along the top Condition, Location, Sort: Best Match etc. I can click on them, but nothing happens.

GoFundMe. I tried to donate tonight and when it toddled off to Paypal, it came up with some kind of Localhost error after I clicked on Submit. Did it on Chrome, and it worked perfectly. Fortunately, the money didn't come out multiple times.

Oracle E-business. I'm sure many of you use this at work. I genuinely can't login to this using Firefox unless I use a private window. I've cleared my ENTIRE cache. Even went into the Folder and manually cleared it all out. If I try and login without being in a private window, I get "Your session is no longer valid or your logon information could not be reestablished from your session."

This is all since the last update to 127.0

I entered my Mozilla password in Firefox after signing into a Barnard College / Columbia University library computer. I do this several times a week. This time there was a new problem, which I think is a bug.

After I entered my password, I was asked for Duo verification. I made a mistake and entered the verification code for a different app. I was told to try again. I entered the correct code and got an error message that I had tried too many times and to try again later.

I made one mistake. On my second attempt I entered the right code. How is that "too many" times?

Question: Columbia and Barnard send a message for Duo approval when signing into their computers. I think that's easier. Can Mozilla and Firefox be set up that way?

thank you

When I launched Mozilla, it asked for the system admin password to perform an update. I had never encountered anything like this before, but unfortunately, I entered my credentials instinctively. When I realized that the browser had never asked for credentials for an update before, I checked the update history. According to the history, the last update was the day before. Additionally, I checked the modification dates of the files updater.exe, maintenanceservice.exe, and maintenanceservice_installer.exe, and they match the date when Firefox requested administrator privileges. I would like to know what could have caused this situation and whether it could have compromised the security of my Windows system.

Hi, I'm a UK user and since this update dowloaded it is blocking the "cookie options" popup boxes on my email accounts and as a result I can not access my emails using Firefox. I have had to resort to "Google" but I would much prefer to use Firefox I am trying to see if I can make my email accounts exceptions, however it would be easier if I can just uninstall this update. Could you advise me how to do this. Thanks for your help and advice Mike

My computer (Windows 11) crashed while I was using Firefox--for the first time that I've seen, it did a full disk check. When booting back up, I was unable to use Firefox, since it said that my profiles.ini file was lost/corrupted.

After renaming the old file, I went back to the folder. It was easy enough to reinstall the add-ons that I needed, but I'm trying to get my bookmarks back. However, I can't seem to find them--the "bookmarkbackups" folders that come up are too new, and only one (the current one) has a file in it.

Any help will be appreciated! I'm not sure what I can do.

I really appreciate everything you do, but I am a boomer (Loud and Proud), I did not get born with a device attached to my hand, I am a digital imbecile.

With all that in mind, it has become too difficult to keep up with the digitalisation, at least in my case. So when you send me suggestions and update procedures I end up just closing everything, too much to read, too stressing, but the suggestions keep coming every time I open the firefox browser. Can I not just keep the version I have and decline any new versions.

I also have a problem in regard to language, it is set to English, but I do not care for US English, I would like to have GB English, but somehow it won't accept that.

What can I do?

Kind regards,

Hi,

I think it would be nice sync-ing bookmarks would include favicons too.

When I bookmark a site from my work computer, the favicon would not appear in the bookmark of my home computer.

When I reinstall Firefox the bookmarks are restored, but not the favicons.

So, it would be nice to sync favicons too. Makes bookmark more aesthetically pleasing.

Hi,

am running firefox 127.0.1 on a windows 11 desktop. Numerous sites that use a captcha to login fail. In other words, the captcha never loads and I cannot login to those sites. Such sites include teamfaderpro, Coursera, and bandcamp. All logins fail as the captcha is required to be passed prior to logging in, but the captcha never appears and so when I try to log in, nothing happens and I cannot login.

I have tried the above same sites on the Edge browser and have no such issue, the captcha shows and I can login.

Just FYI, the agent switcher setting change recommended by others previously is not suitable. When I tried that fix I was unable to access a considerable percentage of the internet due to some cloudflare issue, so the agent switcher setting is not an option. So far, I have tried all recommended settings to fix this issue and nothing has worked.

I am surprised no one else is having this issue.

Any help is appreciated, or at least inform google/mozilla about this issue as it has been ongoing (on and off) for me for many months. And yes, this problem is persistent for me at the moment, it remains despite rebooting windows, despite clearing cookies and cache (which I have set to automatically delete when exiting firefox).
