Recently I was having trouble using Firefox with my web based Outlook email and asked Microsoft for support. In their reply they recommended that I reset Firefox.

I am reluctant to do so as I don't want to lose all my add ons which have accumulated over time as I am not sure about how to get them back if I lose them with a reset.

Is there a way to reset Firefox but keep my add ons etc?

I would appreciate your advice and thank you in anticipation.

I downloaded Firefox on my Chromebook using the instructions found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos However, I have not been able to update it since. It says updates are disabled in Firefox itself, and I have not been able to fine what files I need to update via Terminal to get the most current version. (I have been able to update other files through Terminal). Can someone please point me in the direction of how to update Firefox if installed in the manner described in the link?

Hi: I hope I can explain my issue easily. When I am using Firefox 96.0.1 64 bit (Windows 10) and go to print a web page, the print screen pops up. The first thing on the right under "print" is a 'destination' drop-down menu for the various printers on my network. They appear in reverse alphabetical order. How can I configure the dropdown menu so that they appear in alphabetical order? Thanks so much.

I've done everything I can think of and advice to fix problems in FF for Windows 10 to solve problems, especially tabs crashing. I've gone through the diagnostic steps and submitted crash reports. I can't do my day job this way. I didn't have the various problems, crashing tabs, difficulty getting to HTTP sites (I can't help how someone has their site set up) when I was back at release 83, as I recall. I want to find a copy of release 83 to install. What I want to know is, Will I miss crucial items if I do this? Thanks.

On a trusted website, for a class which I paid a lot of money to attend, I get this error message, on FireFox only: The media could not be loaded, format is not supported.

I used to LOVE Firefox,but I'm getting frigg'n irritated by it right now. Chrome and Safari both open this page. I had this same problem a few days ago, was sent a long list of possible ways to deal with it that were all over my head complicated. I chose the simplest one- to clear caches, and it worked! yay, for a couple of days, now the error is back. I there must be a different solution , or cause, than the cache one - What needs to be turned on or off, so this doesn't happen? Too complicated, too frustrating.

I'd love it if someone could give me some more ideas on this. Macbook Pro 16" 2021, IOS Monterey 12.1

Thank you!

Hello Unfortunately there isn’t a topic in your list which mentions my problem. So here it is. Ever since the last update when I go to Settings>Logins & Passwords they aren’t there. Instead, there is a single line saying “To save and autofill logins and passwords, enable Face ID, Touch ID or a device passcode.” with a link underneath saying “Learn More.” So far so good. But when I click that link another tab pops up saying “Can’t find that page” in multiple languages no less. I’ve had that page showing everything from English to Japanese. And that’s it, game over. Now the logins are still there somewhere because it still logs me in to many sites, I just can’t see them anymore. Anything you can tell me about this would be greatly appreciated. I’ve never contacted you before so I don’t know where I would find your answer. So, given that, my email is gregcocks193@ @gmail.com. Thanks for taking the time to read this Greg

After updating to Firefox 96.0, Firefox became unusable. Went from happily playing two youtube tabs (one speech, other background music) 2 tabs in separate windows of 10 to 12 windows open with more than 10 tabs in each window, although many were inactive, alongside Apple Mail and often one or two other apps open such as Preview, VLC or TextEdit; whereas immediately after update to Firefox 96.0 to taking 10 minutes to load a tab when only 2 or 3 tabs were open, and unable to play youtube videos without continuous breaks totalling far more than the video itself, and unable to play embedded videos in BBC news website when only 2 or 3 tabs open in one window with no other apps running, other apps were very sluggish when Firefox running; all other apps ran fine, as normal when Firefox was not running.

Firefox 96.0.1 improved it's ability. Youtube videos will mostly play now if there is only 2 or 3 tabs open, as with BBC embedded videos, tabs are often now taking 3 to 5 minutes to load.

Downloads were like night & day, Firefox was happily working until updated to FF 96, immediately after update FF was almost impossible to use, updating to 96.0.1 created a little more usability, but still cumbersome and very sluggish to the point of pretty well unusable. Was running FF on 2011 Mac Mini, OS 10.12.6 with 16GB RAM

When I would go into Bing, I would go into settings and change from "Moderate" to "Strict"; I would also uncheck "Search Suggestions" so suggestions don't fill in as I type. Then I would click "Save". Until recently, these settings held with no problem. Now after I click "Save" and go back to the main screen in Bing (or come back to Bing after being somewhere else), I'm back to "Moderate" and suggestions fill in as I type. Microsoft claims this is Firefox's issue and needs to be fixed at Firefox's end. Others are posting on Microsoft's answers forums, some also using Firefox, but not all. I love Firefox and I'm not changing to something else, so can you tell me how this Bing issue might be fixed? Thank you.

This is regards to another application issuing startActivity Intent.ACTION_VIEW on Firefox of a URI with Browser.EXTRA_APPLICATION_ID set.

Previously, it worked so (the syntax is not to be taken literally). startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/a.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a tab with a.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> used same tab for b.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> used same tab for b.htm and refreshed.

Now, with the most recent release: startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/a.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a tab with a.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> opened a new tab for b.htm startActivity(ACTION_VIEW, uri="http://example.com/b.htm", app="MySpecialTab") -> does not refresh.

I went looking for some config but couldn't find anything. The fact that I can't get it to refresh is a bigger deal-breaker than the fact that it opens more tabs.
