So I forgot my Firefox account password, but it is open on my android and ipad but not on the main laptop browser. I don't want to reset my password since I need my data, so the only way I see is backing up data from mobile and then pushing it to the laptop. How this is possible? Also, can why I cannot login on laptop with scanning a QR code? Any method I can use to login to my account without the password?

I use multiple Firefox profiles. Normally, Profile Manager always appears at launch.

But lately, if I launch Firefox while a profile is already open, it just opens a new window in the current profile. The only way I can get Profile Manager is by typing firefox.exe --profilemanager.

For the record, I don't have this option enabled: Use the selected profile without asking at startup.

Firefox is crashing almost immediately after loading a page. Sometimes it crashes while loading the page, sometimes I can scroll down or click a link, and then it crashes. Biggest issues are on Reddit. I'm able to browse the Firefox support pages with minimal issues (although it has crashed once or twice).

Crash happens in Safe Mode. (I'm in safe mode right now and it just crashed) I did a FULL clean install about a week ago. (actually did it twice just to be sure)

Not sure what info you need in order to help, but here is some of the crash report from the latest one today.

While the profile file from my old hard drive, is accessible through a USB port on my new computer, I continue to have difficulty in retrieving access to Local Folders on the old computer and successfully enabling them to migrate to the new computer. Both new and old computers are operating with Windows 10. I thought I had succeeded, getting the old Local Folders initially to appear in the Local Folders drop down menu on the new computer. They have since disappeared on the new installation, and although I am confident that they are still present on the old hard drive, I suspect they were "auto-deleted" within the new installation. I would like to simply copy the old Local Files to the new profile, but I suspect I must do more. Can a kind one of you give me a step by step on how to proceed? I believe that if I succeed in getting the old Local Folders to appear in the installation of Thunderbird on the new computer, I will be almost completely restored to the functionality I was enjoying on the old computer when its motherboard failed and it refused to reboot on December 30,2020. Takers?

We are getting a PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR when going to several sites. One such site is accuplacer.org. Things we have tried: Cleared cache and history for all time Turned off firewall, Amp (antivirus), Malwarebytes, & umbrella changed network settings on Firefox to auto detect proxy and no proxy change DNS over https off and on with CloudFare changed vlan's for the wired computers

We have found that off our wired network these sites work. We are able to reach them on our wireless network. However on the wired connections they fail with that error. Other than the NIC, AP, and Controller on the wireless side everything is the same. Anyone have any thoughts on this other than use a different browser or only use wireless computers?

Thank you Austin

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

I tried to play a program on the CBS site; I've done this two or three times a year for many years with no problems, but this time the site said it could not load its ads (error 113), and therefore would not play the show. I've always watched the ads before, never a problem until now. I checked the icon for Adblock Plus, and it said that something had caused it to reset to default; it said I could fix this by removing and reinstalling Adblock Plus, which I did, but that made no difference. I don't know what default is, or what I had before (a friend set up my computer for me, so I don't know details), but I just want the CBS site to be able to load its ads so I can watch the program. What do I do? Thanks.

Sir,

Firefox for iOS does not provide any access to the Privacy & Security panel and to scroll down to the Permissions section. My device is an IPad. So, Firefox for iOS does not allow to control any PERMISSIONS ! This is clearly contrary to the the public Firefox privacy policy !!! Why ???

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

I have multiple email addresses I'm managing through Thunderbird. When people send event invites to my main email address, the replies I send to them come from a different account, and I can't figure out why. Here's what I mean:

Step 1: somebody sends me a calendar invite to my me@janedoe.com email address. Step 2: I click "accept" and "I want to send an email response now." Step 3: I check my sent folder, and see that the reply was sent from facebookthrowaway@janedoe.com.

I've scoured my settings and have no idea how to fix this - any ideas? This makes me look incredibly unprofessional, especially since I'm currently looking for a new job and many of these invites are for phone interviews... :(

Thank you so much!

Using 78.7.0 32bit on Win 10 ( 10.0.19042)

TB is pulling email from a number of Gmail accounts using IMAP

Last couple of days, I have noticed that some emails are missing from my TB inbox on the PC i.e my TB inbox shows 8 new emails on a given day but my gmail account inbox via browser and phone shows more

On the PC If i use the TB search tab and search for part of one of missing email titles - it will be found, and shown in the search results, so the email has been picked up by TB ?

Clicking on the found email title in the search results opens up a new tab with the email title which shows the required item listed under Subj, Correspondents, Date, Location headings and it lists the location at the inbox

Tried a re-boot and uninstall/re-install of TB but still same

But I don't see it in the inbox ?

Any suggestions please
