Hi

I wonder whether you could help me

The OS is Windows 10

By the way, I’ve scanned over and over again, with different software, the computer for any malware, virus, etc, and it’s all clean.

I’ve used Firefox and bookmarks for years.

Lately, when I try to place (sometimes even when I’ve already placed it) the cursor on a bookmark (any bookmark) all the bookmarks (including the selected, “highlighted”, bookmark) roll away, upwards or downwards.

As for the selected bookmark, it disappears from view, even though, when I find it, I can see that the bookmark itself remains selected.

Weird.

What am I doing wrong??

In advance, thanks for your kind help

Hi developers, I wanted to send compressed requests (i.e raw JSON to Gzip) from firefox browser to API server which can understand both compressed and un-compressed requests. For same, I am setting up content-encoding header as gzip, will the browser automatically compress the raw requests just by adding the content-encoding request header or do I need to manually compress the requests using some code snippet ?

I am having trouble saving the correct website address for a specific login. The correct address I am trying to save is: https://bcbsfepvision.com/portal/ The address is automatically shortened to: https://bcbsfepvision.com when I save the login info. The problem is that when I navigate to "https://bcbsfepvision.com/portal/," the login/password info is not available, and I must type it in myself.

Is there a fix or workaround?

Thanx

Someone logged into my account this morning around 0732 ET. My account was compromised. There are virtually no tools to see if I had any logged passwords or bookmarks that leave me vulnerable to further damage. - I can’t view access logs to see if my account was legitimately accessed or if I just got a phishing email (it’s uncharacteristically good if it’s phishing: looks identical, spoofed source, real IP reported) - There’s no note of sent emails that can give me confidence in email links (they don’t look useful anyway) - I can’t see if any saved passwords have been removed with a timestamp - I can’t see if bookmarks have been removed - I cant even report the compromised account

The lack of support built into the application is a real security concern. I stopped using FF for the time being. I don’t know if I feel safe using it in the future. It took my a while to reset my password. I think I’m good now but some logs or some sort of fraud response would go a long way.

When I first downloaded Firefox it opened normally and stayed open for around twenty seconds after which it crashed. Every subsequent attempt to open it has resulted in the outline of the program briefly flashing in the corner of my screen but otherwise nothing. It also doesn't appear in task manager. I have scoured the internet looking for solutions and have reinstalled it several times but nothing has worked. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac Magic Keyboard. Tapping the spacebar also causes the entire window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

Firefox 78.15.0esr – glitches since approx 24 SEP 2022

I'm running Firefox 78.15.0esr on El Capitan 10.11.6 on my Mac Pro 4,1, 2009, because they are the last updates the computer can run.

Since approx 24 Sept, 10 days ago, I'v consistently been experiencing two types of glitch:

1. I can't UPLOAD photos to web sites. One says 'parse error'. Interestingly, the same is happening on WhatsApp (version 2.2236.10).

2. On some websites – a minority, but including Google sites – pages either don't load at all, they hang when loading, or they load without graphics content, or they load completely 'ASCII'.

I'm wondering whether it's either 1. a tweak in Firefox, or 2. a tweal in Mac OS 10.11.6, or 3. some other in global internet protocols that my old browser and old WhatsApp can't cope with

...or something else. Is the same happening to anyone else? Any ideas, anyone?

I stupidly exported my Google browser bookmarks to Firefox when setting up on a new device and lost all my firefox bookmarks from all my other devices as a result. I am utterly horrified and freaking out - it's years of bookmarked articles that I'd even organised into folders! Is there any way to get them back?

Hello :) I know the subject might sound a bit vague so I will try to be more specific in the following.

Unfortunately, I have recently lost the full content of my Firefox profile that is usually recorded in the Application Support folder on a Mac

I had a lot of pages and tabs opened at that time and I would really like to recover all of these data if possible.

Since I cannot access to my sessionstore/recovery/bookmarks/prefs files (etc.) anymore, I would like to know if Firefox would be able to recover theses files in its database provided I had a connected Firefox account to it when it happened? If so, could you please explain me where I could find these data on my account?

Besides, could you think of another way to get to the same result knowing that I don't have a recent clone/time machine backup unfortunately?

Many thanks for your potential help!

I am using Firefox 105.01 on a Macbook Pro (2022) with OS 12.6. My default email is Outlook for desktop. I do not use the mac email program. When I try to share a web page via email using Firefox's file/share/email, I get the dialog box shown in the attached screen shot. I have followed all instructions for setting up outlook as my default email on firefox (mailto) and it still results in this dialog box asking me to set up an email service. Can someone help me out of this trap? The work around of copying the URL into an email is doable, but it is many more steps than using Firefox's share function.

With thanks for any assistance.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.
