I want to remove ALL the passwords in firefox lockwise. No answers here. This is the worse software design I have ever seen from firefox. The old versions allowed you to delete ALL passwords with one simple click, it looks like the only way I can get passwords removed in firefox lockwise is do so individually. Who was the mental defect that designed firefox lockwise without providing a ONE CLICK way to remove all passwords?

It started yesterday. When I open my XFINITY email service and try to read any e-mail, the whole body of the e-mail is "Blocked by Content Security Policy." And it says further that "Firefox prevent this page from loading." It looks like it is a problem from the Firefox browser. Your help would be appreciated.

I saw another post about this, and someone linked an article in the comments, but it didn't actually tell me what it was. When I go to settings it says that my browser is being managed by my enterprise, and when I go to enterprise policies it lists "ImportEnterpriseRoots" as true. Is this just a part of Firefox, or should I be concerned? And if it is a part of Firefox what does it actually mean?

Since updating to Firefox 70, the tab bar is shown even if there is only one tab (it just shows the + button then). Previously, the bar was hidden if there was only one tab. This previous behavior may depend on some setting, but I don't remember if I changed any setting for that. Have *no* Add-ons installed that affect tab visibility.

How to restore the old behaviour that tab bar is hidden if there is only one tab?

There are many sites I visit regularly and would like a 2 line bookmark toolbar, (entirely separate from regular bookmarks that are stored in a different area and in their own folders). The bookmark toolbar is very convenient, but would be far better if it could be increased to 2 or even 3 rows, to avoid the hassle of clicking through folders to find my most commonly visited sites. Using Firefox 70.0.1 on Windows 7 desktop computer, 64 bit. Thanks to anyone who can solve this!

What does "clear cache" do?

I've got a couple addons, that clear browsing data.

Clear Browsing Data https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clear-browsing-data/

Clear Cookies and Storage Button https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/clear-storage-button/

I want to set up one to just clear cache, and the other to do a more extensive cleaning job, but what exactly happens when we clear cache? I ask because both these addons have multiple data clearing options, and I'm confused about a couple of them.

Does the option "Clear images and files" complete the definition of clearing cache, or does clearing cache also include "Local Storage Data"? Or is something else also included?

I'd also like some advice on "Service Workers" and what are the results of clearing this type of data.

The Problem: I recently noticed that decoding youtube videos in 2160p60fps is choppy beyond recognition.

Diagnose: While playing said videos in firefox i was able to observe in the task manager that actually none of my graphics cards video decoding capabilities were used. At lower video qualities/resolutions the hardware accelerated video decoding of the graphics card was also not kicking in, but in these cases my cpu was still able to cope with the decoding load, so I never noticed the missing hardware acceleration. To narrow the origin of problem down I tried watching the same videos in edge, chrome and even downloaded a short 2160p60fps clip to play with VLC and everything worked fine, just not in my favorite browser firefox :(

What i already did trying to solve the problem (in order): -Restart Firefox without addons -Refresh Firefox -Create a new Profile

Additional Info: Nvidia Driver Version 441.20

If there is anymore useful info I'm more than happy to provide it.

Thanks for taking the time reading this an providing help.

Hi,

I use Firefox as my default browser.

Whenever I click on a link in an email it opens a new Firefox window instead of opening a new tab on a Firefox window that is already open.

My preference is for it to open a new tab on an already open Firefox window.

I have looked in the settings / preferences and can’t seem to find where to make this change.

Please can you advise the process / steps for me to make this to happen.

Sometime recently (as of 11/3/19) Firefox ceased to reliably print entire web pages. Instead it prints the first, last, and sometimes one middle page. The print preview function suffers the same error. Since the problem shows up in print preview I don't believe that it is related to the configuration of a specific printer. It doesn't seem to be a coding error in the web page as other browsers like IE, Chrome, and Opera render the page accurately. Because I don't print pages often, I can't tell with what version the problem showed up.

This was first reported here original post and verified by Mchall and me.

The issue arises with the following steps

   find a cell with text (not formula)
   place the cursor in the edit line (formula bar)
   backspace to remove all of the text
   type in new text
   hit enter

A new line, char(10) is inserted after the text. Confirmed with a find function.

It did this with Firefox but not Chrome. Reported in Google sheets forum title "Why are line breaks being added to cells randomly" Can't see how to add link here.

I have read every article on this I can find, including everything in Firefox. I cannot get videos to stop automatically play. I can get them to not play sound. I have changed every single setting in about:config, media.autoplay. Nothing stops them from playing. I have used numbers from 0 to 5 in media.autoplay.default. Attached is a screenshot of my settings.

I do not have any plug-ins at this point, as I just installed Windows 10 and am configuring my computer.

I am extremely sensitive to these moving videos; they make me feel sick. So I really need them disabled. PCMag is a good example of a site with a million different (types?) of videos playing.

My bank's site continually indicates that it does not recognize my computer and forces me through 2- and 3-step authentication before it allows me to log in. I complained and was told to add their site to my browser's Trusted Site List. I could not find such a list in Firefox version 70.0 (64 bit). Where do I enter the bank's URL so that I can simply log in? Thanks.
