There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

After many failed attempts with add-ons I come to this forum to ask this basic question. How can I sort bookmarks either alphabetically or manually? I don't understand how such a basic function can be missing from any browser????

Also there seems to be some problem in the Firefox "system" where it thinks I'm looking for desktop applications despite the fact that all of my queries are initiated through the Android browser.

I would like to make a bookmark file with all the tabs in all the open windows, organised by window. The final goal is to be able to open all Firefox windows with all their respective tabs in another browser, like Vivaldi; alternatively, to time stamp various such bookmark files, and open all the window with all their tabs I had open in Firefox, say, 8 months ago. Please have a look at the screenshot attached: it seems that the menu button Bookmarks → Bookmarks All Tabs makes bookmarks only of the tabs of the upper-most window. Thank you for any help.

I like to open all urls and links in a new tab because then I don't loose the original tab's contents. So I have set browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInTabs to true. Alas if I click on a link in the history library it still replaces the actual tab. I know that I can do a middle click or a right click to get a new tab but I would appreciate if I could set the standard behavior to open a new tab. Is there a setting for this?

I am constantly getting signed out of all my logins simultaneously. When I try to log back in I get error messages saying "sorry you'll have to log in first" or "sorry we couldn't find that, try searching for something else." The only way I can fix it is by restarting my phone. It's driving me insane, I have cookies enabled so this shouldn't be happening. Please help

Pocket button disappeared in the three-dots menu. It is replaced by a Bluetooth button.

Now, I searched for solutions obviously. However, the about:config page has not one listing with the word 'pocket' in it, so I can't just reactivate it.

I'm would like this function back and I was wondering whether one of you could help me!

External links overriding current tabs instead of opening a new tab

Hello,

I've recently switched to Firefox mobile on my Android (Samsung Galaxy 7) because the Samsung browser had a few issues. However, I'm having a few issues with tabs. There seems to be no setting for forcing an external link (from another app) to open in a new tab in Firefox. Instead, it overrides a current tab. Most people keep tabs open for later use, so I can't understand why Firefox would be designed to override that behavior. It's like going back in time before tabbed browsing became commonplace. I've tried editing about: config, but the setting "browser.link.open_external" is already set to 3, which as far as I can tell is supposed to open links in a new tab (why is there no manual/database somewhere with all the current about:config settings listed? How do people memorize what each number means? Why is this not more user-friendly?)

As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty frustrated as this is a very minor thing that should be easy to adjust in normal everyday settings. Everyone opens links in a new tab these days. It's much easier to close an extra tab than it is to find a site you were saving for later that got overridden by clicking a link.

Thanks for any help.

I'm not able to see stocks charts on google search and Google Finance is not opening when I use a Android device with Firefox. I tried with the latest versions of Firefox Focus, Nightly and Firefox standard. If I choose the desktop version, Google Finance works but it is with a very awful layout. On my Android, with Brave and Chrome the Google Finance site also opens. With my Mac, Firefox opens the Google Finance site. Any suggestions? Thanks
