I had to downgrade Firefox. Before I did I created a new profile so we would not lose the old bookmarks. Now Firefox downgraded and no bookmarks or profile. Then I upgraded back to the latest Firefox and still no profile or old bookmarks. Can anyone suggest where they might be?

Hello In mozilla firefox, i disabled "ask to save passwords, autofill forms" and i turned on "never save history, delete cookies after exiting browser" functions. I entered my passwords for one website using this browser. And I deleted cookies and history one more time to make sure so that no one can access my login and password. But in one article i read that firefox keeps files called logins.json and key4.db which stores login&passwords. My question is - Are my logins and passwords saved even though I disabled&enabled that functions i mentioned before?

To get search results you should not need to log in. There are a few reasons you may not be getting search results, but the most common reason I have found is that the browser you are using has pop-up/ad blocker enabled. This is especially true when using the Firefox browser. If possible, you may try either disabling the ad-blocker/pop-up blocker or switching browsers.? I am trying to research info in the NHHS ( New Hampshire-genealogy)

Firefox 100

Have you noticed this? It's been annoying me for quite some time, so I finally googled for a possible solution to the problem, and found this thread

What's up with some YouTube videos not showing the date it was uploaded?

It turns out that the user must zoom out the page until the date emerges, right where it is supposed to be. Apparently, not necessarily the same for everybody. In my case, from 100% to 80%.

But I still don't think there is a consensus whether the cause it is the website, the browser, or both. Nor is there a suggested fix except for this workaround.

I have installed IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my recent Lenova laptop..

But I cannot seem to be able to, or be allowed to, add IBM Security Trusteer Rapport to my Firefox browser (100.0.1 version) but it appears immediately in my Edge browser next to the address box. I have used Firefox for many years and it is my default browser.

My bank (Santander UK) strongly recommend this addon as it provides encryption protection.

Has Moxilla barred it from Firefox but if not, how can it be added? There is no way I can see to add Santander UK (or any other UK bank) manually to Rapports list of protected bank sites.

Any clarity on this would be most appreciated. Hector Currie

Firefox for Android 91/98/101 (Beta) - Proxy authentication - Login credentials will not be stored

Hi all, in Firefox for Android (in the following I will always mean "Firefox for Android" when mentioning "Firefox") 78 it was possible to store login credentials, which were used to authenticate on a web proxy. The web proxy is a "squid" web proxy with enabled user authentication.

With Firefox 91 (I have not determined since which version exactly the behavior was changed, we "jumped" from Firefox 78 to 91) the web proxy asks for the login credentials and the authentication itself is working, but Firefox 78 would prompt the question, whether the user wants to store the credentials. This prompt will not be shown in Firefox 91. Additionally I have tested Firefox 98 and 101, there the prompt will be shown and the credentials will be stored (I can look the credentials up in the Firefox Password Manager), but they will not be "auto-filled" when accessing the web proxy again, after closing the Firefox.

My questions regarding this issue: Does someone know patch notes, where this behavior is mentioned? Does someone know, if this is on any "Mozilla Buglist/Featurelist"? -> before the hint will be given "use the search" -> Does someone know, what the underlying mechanism is, so that I am able to look it up?

Thanks, I appreciate any hint or suggestion (like raising it as bug/feature or possible workarounds).

Google searches are occasionally freezing up Firefox and not processing. I'll type in my search, push enter and suddenly my entire desktop will hang, mouse will move slowly and jerk around before regaining full control. Once control is regained, Firefox will no longer respond and must be force closed and relaunched.

It's getting exhausting to the point I've used Edge for searches just to not be bothered.

Let me know what information I can provide to make diagnosis easier. I understand intermittent issues are rough to troubleshoot.

Hi, I browse exclusively full-screen, and I've had a recurring headache making the annoying full-screen animation go away since the inception of Firefox itself- it is the best browser by far and I am loathe to use anything else.

This question comes up time and time again, disabling animations through about:config is very much hit and miss and seems to work completely randomly, sometimes it does, sometimes it don't.

Well, now it don't. Again.

I have the following set:

full-screen-api.transition-duration.enter: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition-duration.leave: 0 0 full-screen-api.transition.timeout: 0 0 full-screen-api.warning.delay: 0 full-screen-api.warning.timeout: 0 dom.animations-api.core.enabled: false

Oddly enough, there used to be options for setting "cosmetic" animations too, but I have no option to change that since FF 100.

Can someone please let me know how to solve this because the annoyance is big enough for me to switch over to Opera or some other browser permanently for how consistently unreliable this function is.

Thank you.

I have 2-Step verification on Gmail. When I go to log in I get this: Insert your security Key into the USB. I cancel out of it and get this: Your phone can’t locate your device. Move your phone closer to the device where you’re signing in, and then try again. I "Try another way" and I try to get a "one-time security code" and it forwards me to a website where the cycle begins again. If I try "Auto-recovery" it sends me to google. I can access Gmail on the same machine via Chrome, but would rather not. I can also get it on Firefox on my phone.

I did recently turn on two-step and it asked if I wanted a key, and I thought it might mean Google Authentication, I think it meant a USB key.

Any thoughts? I rather not give up Firefox.

I have been having an issue, since just before the update to 100, where Google sites stop responding. Gmail will display banner at the top "OOPS - The system encountered a problem...", Google search from the search bar will do nothing, Google Maps will not load and any google web page will not load or refresh. Closing Firefox and restarting it will fix the issue, temporarily. At first I thought it was any web page, but I have tested other search engines and web pages, using Firefox while the Google pages are unresponsive, and it is limited to Google pages. I can open the affected Google pages with Edge, while Firefox is still "locked out".

Has anyone else noticed this issue?

I've tried other search engines, same thing. It does work in troubleshoot mode and incognito. I do not have any extensions or add ins and use the default theme. No updates are available, I've cleared history (works very temporarily), & reinstalled.

Hello again......

Firefox has a search engine on the home page that when you enter information it converts to a small tab at the top of the Home Page...... In Microsoft Edge you put your information in the big square box in the center of the homepage and it does not convert to a tab at the top of the page... which makes it easier for people with slight vision problems to read.......

I am getting some advice on how to tweak this to get it to work ...but.... at the same time, it can cause instability in Fire Fox......

Solution: I want Firefox to correct this problem with an update to Firefox that will help anyone and everyone with this problem once and for all ..............

Thankyou for your help, .... Leonard C.
