With Gmail open in Firefox browser, when I start typing the name of the addressee in the TO field, many addressees will not autocomplete, even though they are properly saved in my Gmail contacts list. I looked for common solution for this ... and found: use different browser. I did, and MS Edge works just fine. Is there a setting in Firefox that will fix this?

Hey there,

I can not log into the Firefox Addons website at https://addons.mozilla.org

- I click on the "Register or log in" link at the upper right corner.

- It opens a page with my email address and a blue button ton log in (picture 1)

- When I click that blue button, it takes me to the second page where I'm asked to enable 2 step authentication (picture 2)

I don't want to enable 2FA for Firefox Addons website and I don't want to download a third party app for this, I just want to be able to log in to the website.

If I click the "cancel" link (at the bottom), it brings me back from where I was and still not logged in

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

I've been using Firefox when it was sort of called Netscape Navigator and its Mozilla's companion mail client - Thunderbird.

So it was a bit annoying (but easily corrected, of course) that Mozilla would undercut it's own products by changing the Thunderbird as the default mail client in favor of something that resembles Microsoft - after a couple of decades of use.

Just noting

I've been getting a lot of crashes on a website I'm developing - for example bp-b1597aaa-c596-4641-ad9b-a9dea0210503 . It's at the stage now where every time I open the site (or a clone of it) it crashes.

This appears to be reported at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1706429 but has severity and priority of P3, perhaps based on 39 reports when the ticket was raised. But there are now 614 of them: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=js%3A%3Afrontend%3A%3AGeneralParser%3CT%3E%3A%3AprimaryExpr&date=%3E%3D2021-04-27T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&date=%3C2021-05-04T17%3A01%3A00.000Z&_columns=date&_columns=product&_columns=version&_columns=build_id&_columns=platform&_columns=reason&_columns=address&_columns=install_time&_columns=startup_crash&_sort=-date&page=1#reports

This is really annoying because I'm having to do my website development in Chrome.

I updated my Firefox to version 88 as soon as it came out. Continued working and browsing as usual.

3 days in, browser won't connect > close and restart > error Firefox still running in background > wait for processes to close > re-open Firefox > "You've launched an older version of Firefox - please create a new profile / Exit"

Follow the instructions, setup my profile from scratch again, login to all my accounts and proceed to get back to work. Few hours later - Firefox notifies me a newer version is released and i need to update my browser.

Not too long after, Firefox is downgraded to 87 by itself and I repeat the same process over and over again.

I tried:

  • Full uninstall / clean re-install
  • Deleting all profiles and all Mozilla folders and reinstalling
  • Some fix that's supposed to allow me to use my ver.88 profile on ver.87

Something is making Firefox downgrade to 87 by itself - This happens while I am browsing/using Firefox and causes all connections to drop and the browser to Crash soon after.

Any thoughts?

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

I must have done something wrong here, although I don't think so. this is a follow up, i think, to my other long discussion here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334596

I followed almost everything here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-bookmarks-and-history-will-not-be-functional

restarting everything did not work. but I do a lot of restoring config files (sqllite, json, etc...) by copying and pasting in the win explorer system. is that possibly the cause of this? I even re-installed FF, but the corporate peoples' attempt at massive control of the world is getting in the way I think. I know how to re-create the sqlLite files, which I will do now. but my question really is: could I have done something wrong by messing around with these files? I really didn't do much. images attached show more. thanks.

So I have several accounts logged-in in Gmail:

/u/0 <- my main one /u/1 /u/2 /u/3

... but in Youtube I always used my /u/1 account, I have all my playlists there, etc.. and I want to have my /u/1 logged-in there as the main one while I also have my /u/0 as the main one in Gmail. I come from Opera and I didn't have any problem doing this, I just log-in in the desired order in Gmail, and then I log-in in Youtube with the account that I want. But in Firefox it links my gmail with my youtube, so if I log-out my /u/0 in youtube, it also logs out from Gmail. So when I put the /u/1 on first place in youtube it alter the order in my Gmail and /u/1 becames the main one.

How can I set it up correctly in Firefox? it is not a Gmail/Youtube problem, but a Firefox problem, since I can do it as I want in other browsers.

Thanks.
