Just this. Thanks in advance. Here's this add-on's description: "Automatically resumes YouTube videos from where you played them last. Without this extension, for example, when you click through YouTube videos, back and forth, they always start from the beginning. No more. With this extension, previously seen videos will resume from where you left them at. Even if you restart your browser." I have: Author Appteligent LTD Version 1.2.3 Last Updated December 10, 2019

While browsing, the URL is essential. I often need to drag / copy this URL to another application. Most of the time there simply is NO room at all to even grab the URL. So we need to enlarge the browser window in order to enlarge the toolbar.

Does any add on or extension exist that adds an additional left, right or bottom 'bar' where we can place extension icons / controls? So as to maximize room for the addressbar? With bigger and bigger monitors available it is just plain ridiculous to not be able to use this space.

I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?

Earlier today I had to reinstall win 10 to fix performance issues as I was unable to identify issues occuring. I have fixed the issues. But as result FIREFOX App was removed. And through this process all bookmarks and settings appear to have been lost also. I have attempted to import and or locate bookmarks but the only thing which appears is NEWER INSTALLATION. Is there a way to find all bookmarks from previous FIREFOX used? Please help?

I was reading an article on Sophos about Firefox and how it is protecting our privacy

https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2019/11/27/firefox-gets-tough-on-tracking-tricks-that-sneakily-sap-your-privacy/

In the comments it listed 3 sites to check how unique your browser is: https://www.deviceinfo.me – Device Info https://panopticlick.eff.org – Panopticlick https://amiunique.org – AmIUnique

I have Fingerprinters checked to be blocked but on all these sites it still was able to uniquely ID my browser. I thought I had the options set pretty well to lock it down but it doesn't seem that way. Is something not working right or ???

Thanks

Since yesterday, Firefox will not play sound on youtube videos and some other embedded videos (eg Newsflare). IE and Chrome will play the sound. Have checked the sound system and everything seems OK as music still plays and websites with sound still work. Someone suggested it could be a flash player problem, but have checked Adobe flash and it is the latest version. I really don't know what the problem is. As an aside, my Train Simulator (which is run through Steam) also has no sound and it did 2 days ago!, but my Flight Simulator (also on Steam) has sound! Just can't get my head round it!! Help!!

I am using Firefox Browser 71.0(64-bit) with xubuntu. Recently I have problems trying to select 'right click' options. If I right click on a selected area of text for example, when I move the mouse pointer to select an option from the menu the menu disappears. Sometimes a selection is made by the system, (usually the top one) and whatever is highlighted can be 'cut'. Alternatively, I must hold down the mouse button and move the mouse pointer the my selection and then release the button thus making the selection (never sure it is actually made!) I was thinking of changing to Chrome but I prefer Firefox because I can re-direct it's cache etc to a HD rather than an SD drive. So, I await a solution please.

Recently moved and transferred cable internet service to new address, keeping same equipment. But when using Firefox, my home geo-location still shows as being in my former region when using online maps, shopping, etc, sites. I'm sure it's not a DNS/server issue as other web browsers show my correct geolocation, and those "what is my IP" sites also show correct region. ISP customer service also confirms my profile is updated.

For the record: - Firefox version: 71.0 - Verified sites have location request permissions - Tried launching in Firefox safe mode - Tried Firefox Refresh

Any suggestions greatly appreciate -

I reinstalled Windows 10 and Firefox will not download any files (although I can download them in Edge). Firefox reports that the download "failed." I tried everything I could find online. Then, I completely cleaned Firefox from my system and installed a fresh copy. The newly installed Firefox still would not download files. Parental controls are not turned on in Windows 10. I turned off User Account Control to test whether it may be interfering with the download (Firefox still would not download). I really don't want to switch browsers, but I need to be able to download files. Thanks for any help.

A cleanup script deleted my browsing history from Firefox Mozilla browser 71.0 (64-bit) on Windows-10-Home.

I'm trying to run the data recovery software https://www.minitool.com/data-recovery-software/ to see if it can recover deleted data.

I looked at this folder but it doesn't have any places.sqlite file within its subfolders C:\Users\<username>AppData\Local\Mozilla There is a places.sqlite in C:\Users\<username>AppData\Roaming\Mozilla but it seems it contains history after the deletion.

What's the difference between the cache2 directory and places.sqlite? C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{profile folder}\cache2

Which file is supposed to contain the history? What file should I look for in the recovered data and where do I copy it to in my current system?

I have a Firefox account and use it to sync across devices; being able to sync and then completely log out on one device is a primary reason I use Firefox.

I log out of devices that I do not own when I'm exiting Firefox. Today I opened Firefox on a device that I'm 100% certain I logged out of yesterday - and found that my bookmarks, bookmarks bar, and add-ons were already visible and active, and one of my add-ons was already logged in.

I verified that the Firefox Sync / login screen showed that no one was logged into the Firefox account, and then I logged in using my usual credentials. It reflected that I was then logged in, but everything else remained visible.

I followed Firefox instructions for viewing the logs, and strangely, there was no log. I went up a directory, and found that all the logs were in the 'failed' directory. Clicking on each of the failed subfolders shows only: ids []

This is very concerning because it entirely negates the security and privacy aspects of having a login. I was not logged into Firefox - and the Firefox interface confirmed that this morning, in addition to confirming it when I logged out yesterday - yet somehow not only were my personal bookmarks showing, but one of my add-ons was also logged in, providing further access to anyone who might have opened a Firefox window from this device.
