Window 10 Firefox login table date scientific number conversion to Excel date numbers

Dear Sir or Madam; I downloaded a login CSV file from the Firefox browser. The date columns format in the CSV login file is ‘1.64055E+12’. In EXCEL, 44556.79166 would translate to 2021/12/26 18:59:59. The translation of ‘1.64055E+12’ should not be the same exact date, but should be in the same date range, as the 44556.79166 number. I’m not a mathematician. Would you please show me how to convert the '1.64055E+12' value to an equivalent excel date/time number? I could then format the excel date number cells to an yyyy/mm/dd hh:mm:ss format. These scientific number values are in the Firefox login file CSV downloads so I assume they were intended to be used in EXCEL spread sheet. These values converted to EXCEL date values would help me sort account password date change records by account name and change date. I could review sorted account records (and thus determine the current password for individual old accounts). Your solution would help me immensely and I appreciate your time.

Loving the picture-in-picture feature. I googled to see if there was a keyboard shortcut to pop out the video and saw that ctrl+shift+] or cmd+shift+] should do the trick, but on my mac (firefox 95.0.2) the ctrl version seems to do nothing while the cmd version goes to next tab, which is redundant with ctrl+tab. I'm wondering if the cmd+shift+] shortcut is being overriden accidentally, or if there's a different keyboard shortcut for this on mac? cheers

Hi, I have an issue with making the separators in the bookmark toolbar drop-downs visible. I am running Firefox 95 with the Quantum - dark Blue theme installed. I am running Linix Mint Uma.

The dropdown have separator - space - but no line showing that there is a separator. I have tried many ways to make the separators visible and with light-grey colouring in the userChrome.css file but nothing changes.

Anybody have any idea what can be done or where I might change the Quantum-DarkBlue coding to incorporate the visible separators?

I have two windows of Firefox 94 for Linux next to each other, each with its own user profile. It would be very handy if I could drag and drop tabs and items in the bookmarks toolbar from one profile into the other. Apparently this does not work out for me. Am I missing some tip/trick?

It is possible to transfer tabs by drag and drop when both windows belong to the same user. Handy. Obviously the two windows share the same bookmarks toolbar, so the point of transferring makes no sense for the bookmark toolbar.

If that cross-profile transfer is not possible, it is definitely a feature request. This would help greatly in merging piecemeal the bookmarks of two users. Say, to separate private and work bookmarks from time to time.

Copy text from address bar (not the URL of the current page)

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354750

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

When I looked into why it was taking so long to backup my FF profile, I realized it was because their are over 21k files my backup software has to compare.

The majority of these are in the "Storage" folder -- apparently local/offline storage for various sites.

I've already moved the cache to a non-synced location using browser.cache.disk.parent_directory and would like to do the same with "Storage".

But I can't seem to find any info on what pref would allow me to do that. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi,

The feature in the title was missed by A LOT of firefox users with the new overhaul. Now its still not in there and its making me doubt if it will ever be and with that if firefox will stay the go to browser or just finally give up on it and move over to brave.

I heard the feature was being tested in the night version of firefox yet i cannot find that feature anywhere in the nightly version nor can i find what the status is, if it really is being tested.

Can anyone give an update on this? Or a link where the status is posted ?

Thanks in advance

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there,

A while ago a new thing started happening with Firefox. Whenever I go to a login page, and the username and password fields are auto populated because Firefox has remembered them, the cursor is positioned at the end of the username. Directly beneath the cursor is what looks like a droplet, blue in colour. Clicking on it does nothing. Clicking anywhere else on the page makes the droplet disappear, as does bringing up another app and then coming back to Firefox. I am using version 93.0 64 bit on Windows 10. I can't do a screen shot of it as bringing up snip and sketch causes it to disappear.

Thanks for your help,

Paul
