I have Firefox multi containers added to two Windows 10 laptops. Everything except multi containers is syncing. The last laptop I added after resetting that computer, updating Windows, and reinstalling Firefox. That last FF installation is showing the default containers. I use a lot of containers so would rather not set them up again. I have reinstalled FF a couple of times on the latest computer but didn't solve it. Suggestions please?

I organize an event. I invite 40 people. Some decline, some accept. Then, I find another person I want to add.

Without asking me, Calendar sends event update emails to everyone. I don't want that.

I just want everyone who is interested to have the event in their calendars so they can plan around it, but I don't want to bug them with updates like that. If the time changes - sure, update everyone, but if participants change - don't.

Because of this behaviour,

  • I do not update my event when I get accept/decline mails (by clicking the update-button in the popdown) because I suspect that this triggers another round of mails to everyone.
* I do not set up recurring events with many participants, because I don't trust Calendar to not spam everyone even more.

If Tthunderbird is going to send event emails, I'd like to be asked first. It would be ok to remember my decision for the event, or have a setting for the event to control that behaviour. I hear the colleagues over at Outlook/Teams handle the situation more gracefully, maybe there are some interaction patterns to copy there.

If I am just holding it wrong, please tell me!

Cheers!

Hi So my problem started a few days ago i don't remember exactly when. The graphs on the binance exchange site have stopped updating for me on Firefox. I mean when i load the page with the graph in it the graph is static and i have to keep refreshing the entire page to see changes in the graph. I should mention that the graphs on a different site that i use work fine and display the prices in real time.

I also had microsoft edge and the same problem happens there too but today i installed chrome and the problem in NOT present there. So the site and graphs update and work properly in chrome but not in Firefox or edge. I prefer to use Firefox for everything!

-I tried Firefox safe mode and the problem is still there. -I also made a new Firefox profile and the problem is still there. -Finally i even refreshed Firefox but even that didnt fix the problem. I should mention that i have Firefox sync enabled so after i refreshed Firefox it automatically installed back all my addons (and other settings?) so even though it is refreshed it looks and behaves exactly like before i don't know if that "cancels" the effects of the refresh.

I am running win10 and my antivirus is kaspersky. I had Kaspesky on "pause protection" while i was troubleshooting but that didnt help either. I hope i managed to explain everything because i find it hard to express my self in English. If you need me to clarify anything let me know. I hope someone can help me with this because I don't know what else to try.

Thanks in advance Kiri

Hi,

after restarting my Android phone I only need to unlock the phone (fingerprint or pattern). When I start Firefox, I'm already logged into my Firefox account, and when I open some page that requires login, the values (user/password) are already pre-filled.

I'm not sure how safe is the fingerprint/pattern lock on Android. If someone gets access to my phone (e.g. I loose the phone), or there is a fake/hacked/rogue application running on my phone, would it have access to my user/password data?

Would it make sense/is it possible to improve this so it works similar to my desktop? That is, Firefox/Lockwise should require some sort of verification on the first use after restart, for example primary password. I guess it's OK it if required me to login into firefox account.

Thanks.

deets: v87 via flatpak on debian(buster)

No matter where I save a file the lastdir is always "/run/user/1000/doc/*some random folder name, that changes each time*".

manually changing browser.download.lastDir causes the next attempt to save to go to the desired folder, but a second attempt reverts to /run/user/1000/doc/abcd123.

Has anyone any idea whats going on?

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.

Ok. So i have never ever used MS Edge for logging into FireFox and Mozilla accounts. But low and behold, MSEdge now has these Login and PW's for these accounts.

I had brought up this observation, in the recent past, regarding how MSEdge aggregated all my logins and pw's from FireFox. And the response was for me to use a Master Password.

But this isnt the solution or the issue at hand.

The concern is why does Edge believe it is entitled to aggregate my FireFox PW's? And when does it do so? And how does it tap into the encrypted FF files? Yet, Edge has not aggregated the bookmarks in FF.

Something is not right nor ethical.

Interestingly, perhaps FireFox users that lose their logins and passwords in FireFox browser can tap into MSEdge to restore them? Seems like a reasonable solution.
