Quantum in its most recent versions has simply stopped prompting for new or changed passwords on Mac OS X, even though all the correct boxes are ticked or unticked. This is really annoying as my memory is failing and I count on the password manager to save and update all my passwords. The ones which were saved in past versions of Firefox are still there, but anything that is from a new website or has been changed isn't. I can mostly change the updated ones manually, but can't put in new websites and their passwords myself. What am I doing wrong?

Dear Community,

I recently switched back to FF from chrome and I really love it. There is one thing I cannot get to work though: I would like to have google as default search engine but without country redirect. In Chrome this is done by using https://www.google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0&gl=us&gws_rd=cr as search engine. What is the equivalent in FF?

Thanks in advance!

Why does using the 'back' button sometimes cause a page reload, but other times does NOT cause a page reload in the same app?

I've noticed this on various sites, but I'll use YouTube as an example. I'm sitting on my YouTube 'home' page and I see a set of 'suggestions'. I click on one of the suggested vids and watch it. Afterward, I hit the 'back' button in the browser (there is not an embedded back button in the app). Sometimes hitting the 'back' button takes me back to the same YouTube page with my suggested videos and I can watch another. Other times, hitting the 'back' button causes a new page to load and I now have a new set of suggested videos displayed. This behavior is not consistent - sometime the page load occurs, other times the same page appears. I cannot detect a pattern to this. What's annoying about this is that there may have been more than one thing I wanted to view on the initial 'suggested videos' section of the original page displayed. However, after watching one of the vids and hitting the 'back' button, if a new page loads, I now no longer have access to those other suggested vids I wanted to watch. As I noted earlier, I've seen this behavior in other apps too. I don't know if this is the right place to ask about this, or if it's a browser thing at all, I'm just trying to understand what's causing this behavior and figure out if there's anyway for me to mitigate it.

I am using the current version of Firefox and when using a particular website (Microsoft CRM Online) I get frequent popup dialogs . The issue I have is Firefox will ask me (in a dialog) if I want to "prevent this website from creating additional dialogs". I understand the reasoning behind this, but I don't want it. I would prefer that the dialogs behave in the same way they do in other browsers.

Can I disable this feature either at the browser

Upgrade from 63 to 64, no extensions/addons or security apps present. Flash enabled to make the login page available. After inputing username/password and selecting domain, hitting enter or pressing Login does nothing. Our only solution at the moment is to downgrade to 63 and disable automatic updating.

Why can't Firefox display images on 4chan.org?

I am using Firefox version 64.0 build ID 20181206201918 on Windows 10 version 1803 build 17134.407.

When visiting 4chan.org images in the popular threads section will not load however when visiting 4channel.org the images in the popular threads section load fine.

I briefly looked at the source code for both pages and I am unable to see any difference as to why this is happening.

When I visit the same sites in Chrome there are no problems.

The troubleshooting I have gone through so far is to refresh firefox (that made no difference), and change the names for the following folders:

%appdata%\Mozilla\Extensions

%appdata%\Mozilla\Firefox

%LocalAppData%Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

That also made no difference.

Can anyone replicate this problem? If so, is it a bug in Firefox when encountering certain code?

I have attached screen shots of the websites in question showing you what I am seeing.

edit: So I forgot to mention that after renaming the folders for Firefox, effectively resetting it and removing all customization, I immediately tried the web pages in question making no changes to Firefox.

Our company offers users the choice of Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge or Mozilla Firefox (60.3 ESR) for web browsing. Our users make use of non-persistent Virtual Desktop Infrastructure which means that each day they get a new desktop. We use a product called Ivanti Environment Manager to retain personal settings across sessions so that things like bookmarks, etc. to persist across sessions.

This product stores settings within a Microsoft SQL database and recommendation from the vendor of that application is only to keep what is necessary across sessions. This is great, we have a list of files and folders within the Firefox profile that we want to roam and some we don't.

Unfortunately this product cannot support wildcards in a folder path so users Firefox profiles are proving to cause a few issues. For example, my profile is C:\Users\Richard\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\i99zcqad.default. What we are looking to do is to have everyone's profile called something like Firefox.default so that we can configure exclusions knowing the profile name will be consistent.

Is there a method anywhere within Firefox where we could do this? Our current solution is a messy one to use a powershell script to find the profile name, rename it and then update the profiles.ini file with the new name but my worry is that some of the underlying sqllite files may face issues as a result of this.

Any suggestions are highly appreciated?

Thanks, Richard

I use industry specific program called resnexus for managing my bed and breakfast. Every time I search for a guest in the resnexus tab, it adds them to my saved addresses under "Forms and Autofill". I have already created 2 form fills and don't want Firefox to automatically add new items. I want to keep autofill turned on as I do lots of online petitions. Any suggestions?

On a Mozilla How-To page (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay), instructions are given for going to Permissions under Privacy and Security to easily select to allow or not allow autoplay of videos.

But on FF 64, that feature simply doesn't exist! (See uploaded image compared to image on the above linked Mozilla help page.)

I'm seeing a couple somewhat recent discussions about stopping autoplay in Yahoo, but it's a bit above my head, as there are configurations talked about that I don't know how to start doing.

Also, it's unclear to me in those discussions if Mozilla intentionally got rid of this easy-to-do setting, and if so why, and if it plans to bring it back or what.

In the meantime, what exactly do I do to stop autoplay of videos?
