So I'm on my dad's computer, he's old and doesn't get the computers. Anyway he has two pinned Firefox's and I told him to delete one and he said no way because they open different firefoxs, and sure enough they do. One opens with a completely different homepage and completely different set of data and saved passwords and websites than the other. The only difference I could tell is that it seems like one he's created a firefox account for and the other doesn't have it. But why would a shortcut open up a different instance of firefox like this? Is this some scam browser that's cloning his firefox browser? Or is this some weird thing that is an only firefox option?

The browser I'm on now says this under about:support

Name Firefox Version 113.0.2 Build ID 20230522134052 Distribution ID Update Folder C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a864-e594e8d1fb38\updates\E370DFFC6E748E8F Update History Update Channel release User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/113.0 OS Windows_NT 10.0 19045


And the other browser says this: Name Firefox Version 109.0 Build ID 20230112150232 Distribution ID Update Folder C:\ProgramData\Mozilla-1de4eec8-1241-4177-a864-e594e8d1fb38\updates\308046B0AF4A39CB Update History Update Channel release User Agent Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/109.0 OS Windows_NT 10.0 19045


Maybe somehow they just didn't realize each other when a new one was installed?

Any help would be appreciated.

Good morning - I wanted to set up two-factor authentication with your browser for security reasons. A code comes up that one uses with one's phone. I connected with it, but I couldn't finish setting up the 2FA. Here's the problem: My Samsung Note 20 Ultra has fingerprint scanning on the screen. Since I bought it, I tried using the fingerprint feature, but it is a beast to get my prints scanned and then it can hardly ever scan my print successfully. So I gave up using fingerprints altogether. So I scan your code, and it wants me to do the whole fingerprinting thing with my phone in order to set it up. It doesn't give me the option to use the security that I did choose to use with my phone. Please advise how I can get 2FA without doing all of this. Thanks. Ritva

Hello,

I am trying to understand if there is a way to customize the tab rearranging behaviour.

In particular, the thing I find very unpractical is that, after a tab is closed, the others do rearrange, but after the mouse goes out of the tab bar. This is particularly annoying when I have to close multiple tabs, since thanks to this behaviour, the tabs which I close after the first one are always the unintended ones.

The solution would be to let the tab rearrangement happen instantly after the closure of the tab. In my opinion even without animations, I do not really care about that.

If you have any suggestions let me know.

Thanks in advance!

Each and every time you install an upgrade on Firefox, your profile vanishes. So I questioned on how to save my profile and I found a nasty solution where you have to close Firefox because of a stupid empty file named parent.lock which happen to be empty on the 2 cases I checked. I did not sniff in the restore constraints yet... What a mess ! Looking at the frequency the Firefox's upgrade arrives, it would be advisable to automatically preserve the user's parameters. Alternately it would be a good thing to have a save/restore function for Firefox's parameter.

I have few sites that pop up in autosuggestion every time I type an letter (for example when I type "i" i got autosuggestion for "imgur.com"). I want to delete these entries as they clutter my search bar. I already deleted search history with all boxes marked as checked, I used shift+delete option and every time it comes back. I want to completly delete all autosuggestion data or find a solution to delete only these I want to delete.

I still want to have autosuggestion turned on. I just want to reset it and erase it completly. I reinstalled the browser but it didn't work either.

I've been using firefox for last 15 years now to do my online banking with RBC. As of 2 weeks ago it has failed to open online banking on the RBC website. Google chrome however works. When speaking to RBC customer support they say it is a problem with firefox and will likely go away once firefox updates to a newer version.

Hope you can help with this issue since my browser of choice is firefox. Thanks

When I try scrolling down on this website it automatically takes me to the top of the webpage like a reset. The hardware is fine because it is happening with touch pad and external mouse both. Even though it is happening only on 1-2 website, I am not sure whether it is my browser's issue or the website itself is faulty. Also, specific part of the URL keeps on refreshing nonstop : ?ref=n2dXHxxxxxxxxxxxxx
