My new computer is running Windows 11. I just tried to log on to my Vanguard account and the Logon button has no response. Using Microsoft Edge I had no problems logging on so the issue must be with Firefox security controls. I have turned off Ad Blocker Ultimate as well as made an exception for cookies from this site. What can I do to fix this?

Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

New Tab Shortcuts wiped out by Sync

Hi all, I suspect I'm out of luck but I'm hoping someone might have some ideas ... I'm using Firefox 94.0.2 and I have become a big fan of the ability to pin shortcuts/bookmarks to tiles in the New Tab screen. I customized my New Tab with 9 rows of tiles, 72 pinned sites, a very useful & convenient feature.

I got a new laptop for work, installed Firefox and logged into my Firefox account. I ran Sync to copy some open tabs over to the browser in my old laptop. Somehow the sync picked up the setting of having 72 tiles on the New Tab page, on the new laptop, which was great; but instead of my pinned sites, the 72 tiles were populated by random sites (presumably pulled out of browsing history). No worries; I'd expected that I'd have to manually configure the new laptop's browser anyway.

But then when i logged into my old laptop this morning I was dismayed to see that the pinned sites were gone! The 72 tiles are still there, but the pinned sites have been replaced by random ones. Now I'll have to reconfigure my old laptop's browser as well. :-(

My question: is there any way to restore the previous pinned sites without having to re-pin them all manually? And once they're all back in place, is there some way to export/save/lock them, so this won't happen again? If having Sync enabled across my two devices is going to randomly wipe out my pinned sites, then I suppose the New Tab tile functionality is not so useful and I'll just use an old-fashioned Bookmark list.

Thanks in advance for any insights!

Recently when clicking through my inbox some of the messages randomly open a new tab, just as if I had double clicked the message.

At first I thought my mouse was giving out, so I tested on a mouse-clicker site and tried to see if any accidental double clicks were happening, which was not the case. No matter how carefully I single click, every now and then a message in Thunderbird opens up in a new tab.

I then started Thunderbird in Troubleshoot mode, even though I don't really use any add-ons. But the same issue happens there too.

Any ideas why this is broken? Why does Thunderbird seem to think I sometimes double click?

Windows 11, Thunderbird 91.4.0 (64-bit)

Hello,

I did some changes to the browser according to a privacy guide: https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/

When I now watch a video, while the overlay is there, the over a third of the video height is full of green horizontal stripes.

I can't figure out which change to the browser leads to this.

Do you have any idea?

Regards, Robert

Google are changing to mandatory 2 stage authentication soon on 14th December. I set it up as they suggested that it should not be left. Thunderbird then just asked me to enter my password..... which I did, but there is no possibility of dealing with the Google code. I have unset this and it works - apart from the fact I cannot send emails anymore! error message implies a temporary server issue - we will see.

Hi, I received an email today saying lockwise will be 'resorbed' into Firefox.

I use Lockwise (for Android) as my password manager for other apps too, not just Firefox because I think it's a great product. Can I continue to use Firefox password manager to log into other apps such as money transfer apps?

If not, what do you suggest I do from 13th December? I hope I don't have to download a non Mozilla app.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards, Sadik

I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

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?
