Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?

Hello,

I would like to save some settings that would take a lot of time to be done manually again, after an update. I have added about twenty search engines with the help of different Firefox addons. During my last update, these were lost (the search bar only had the default searche engines) although Firefox was synchronized (and conserved my bookmarks and other settings).

Would anybody have an idea how to save or synchronize them?

Thank you very much for any help!

The URL I used to use to get to password manager chrome://passwordmgrcontent/passwordManager.xul no longer works. Is there a similar URL that can be used in FF 66?

(I know that in later versions of FF there is a hamburger menu item for this)


A little bit more info:

Just tried it on FF69 Windows and it does work, but it does not work on FF66 Mac (which is where I need to use it). Not sure if it is the FF version or the OS

How to display multi-line add-on discription for non published extension

Im creating a FF extension for private distribution (I dont want it listed on the FF extension site).

If I use "\r\n" in my manifest.json "description" I can create a multi line description that displays as expected when I click on the preferences for my extension. The problem is that on the Add-on summary page (where all the installed extension are listed) the description shows the first 40 or so characters of the description (all of line 1 and then as much as will fit of line 2). I want to only show line 1.

I see that with extensions that are published the first line can be short and displays in the summary list, then when the preferences are displayed the first line is displayed and additional lines are displayed.

Any way to do this?

Hi, I'm running into trouble with my Firefox on Android as it grows bigger and bigger in terms of storage space. Now my device is full and I can't even update apps anymore.

Most of my apps can be moved to external SD card. I have heaps of space there. But Firefox does not allow to be moved (under app settings, storage). So I am wondering, why does Firefox not allow moving? Why does it have to sit on my internal device storage and block everything else?

Please change that setting in the app so I can move Firefox to external storage and free up my (little) internal device memory. Or do I have to buy a new phone just to use Firefox? Or rather use a different browser...

Thanks!

How to make macOS system keyboard shortcuts work?

I set up an "App shortcut" hotkey in macOS's System Preferences binding ⌘⇧N (command+shift+N) to "New Private Window", but it doesn't work - when I press the key combination, a new *non-private* browser window opens instead.

In the first attached image, you can see the shortcut configured in the `Shortcuts` pane of macOS' System Preferences application.

In the second image, you can see Firefox's `File` menu open, and verify that the shortcut is correctly assigned to "New Private Window", where it has replaced the default ⌘⇧P.

However, as I said above, the custom key combination doesn't work - it seems to in fact trigger the regular "New Window", which is still the default ⌘N (command+N, no shift key).

Any one know if this is a known issue, and if there are any solutions?

Using a different key combination is not useful for me, since I'm trying to switch from Chrome and have ⌘⇧N very ingrained in my behavior (I pretty much always use private windows unless I need to log in to a site or explicitly want the history saved). If I can't have ⌘⇧N then I might as well just try to adjust to the default ⌘⇧P.

The fact that executing the shortcut brings up a non-private window makes the whole thing much worse - I'm ending up using non-private windows when I think I'm using private ones :/

One of the pages I regularly visit has made an interesting choice. Because all the visitors come from a known list, instead of offering a username field, a plain <select> element is used, together with a standard password field.

This means that Firefox's password manager only saves and autofills my password, meaning I have to select my name every time. That gets mildly annoying. Is there some way to add the value (either the text value or that of the value attribute) of this <select> to the username-password entry and have Firefox autofill it?

I can whip up an example website if my description isn't clear enough.

I am not using Firefox Monitor, and I am running Firefox 66. I just visited a website, and was told via a popup message in the address bar there had been a breach back in 2010, exposing thousands of passwords. (And of course it suggested I sign up for Firefox Monitor to get details.)

I am wondering how Firefox knew that it should show me that message? Does it regularly download a list of breached sites, or is every site I visit being sent to Mozilla so they can check to see whether it's on a breach list?

I'm hoping it's not the latter as I never agreed to share my browsing history with Mozilla, or anyone else, but I can't find any information about how the browser maintains its list of breached sites.
