Hello

so lately i have been having issues with my firefox settings. i added an extension that allows me to use VPN settings for firefox. after the first restart of firefox, there was a prompt asking for "some websites have multiple languages, would you like to ask websites for primarily English language to hide your internet presence better" (yes / no).

it doesnt matter which of these options i pick it will continue to resize my firefox window size to default firefox first time start size.

when i drag a tab from my "primary firefox window" to the desktop behind it, this window will also resize.

i have tried everything i can think of at this point.

Refreshing firefox manually removing user profile (deleting the user folder in %appdata%\mozilla\firefox) starting firefox in safe mode, it still happens. even removing the VPN extension afterwards doesn't help either

im at a loss here, i really dont know which options / setting i need to change for this to stop happening.

Prior to Firefox 60, individual cookies could be removed without also removing the other site data at about:preferences#privacy. However, individual cookies could still be removed at chrome://browser/content/preferences/cookies.xul. Now in Firefox 61 beta, that chrome URL has been removed (even though it's still listed at http://kb.mozillazine.org/Chrome_URLs).

Mozilla must restore users' ability to remove individual cookies only. For an organization who tout themselves as being privacy and security conscious, it makes absolutely no sense to take away users' ability to manage individual cookies without having to install a separate extension.

I'm on a MacBook Pro, MacOS version 10.13.4. On my computer *only*, when I access a website with an ssl certificate, both Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition do not recognize it, it tells me "Could not verify this certificate because the issuer is unknown." I did some research and learned about the certificate chain, that an intermediate certificate wasn't found? IF so, then why is Firefox able to successfully browse it from other computers? I deleted cookies and browser history but no luck. Again, this ONLY happens on my computer in Firefox, so is there another file or setting that only I have and what might I check next?

During site testing and development, after a while, Firefox Inspector and Browser no longer updates css settings saved in my editor! Then when I switch browser, the fresh browser displays the page with the new settings. Why Is it so? And is there something I can do to ensure, the browser does not stop updating my pages with changed settings in my CSS?

Spell checking does not work in Firefox Developer Edition. How can I fix this?

When I am entering text into a text box (for example a textarea html tag) with Firefox Developer Edition 61.0b2 (64-bit), and many previous versions, every single word is underlined as red. When I right click and select the language, US English is the only option. To begin to debug this I started firefox in safe mode from the command line. The first time I place my cursor in a text box, the following appears in my terminal:

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.dic: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open


This seems like something one might expect to see considering the the spell checking problem. However, if I run: "ls -l /usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/" on my system I get the following:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3090 May 9 23:34 en_US.aff

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 545233 May 9 23:34 en_US.dic


So the dictionary files are definitely there. Furthermore I have opened them to make sure they are populated with the words from the English language.

To remedy the issue I have tried "resetting" firefox so that I have a new profile, but this did nothing. Interestingly enough, when I run the non-developer edition of firefox, the spell checking works as expected.

How can I go about fixing this issue?

Why do you guys have two features for essentially the same purpose (saving URLs for visiting later), that don't talk to each other?

As far as I can tell, the only purpose of bookmarks is for typing the start of it into the awesome bar... and maybe edge cases like loading in the sidebar.

Aside from that, are there particular scenarios in which I should use Pocket, and others in which I should use bookmarks? How would I know which to use?

Are you thinking about merging the two eventually?

Hi there, I am totally frustrated with FF. It used to work very beautifully in the last few years until recently I found that one update screwed my browsing experience. Right now , whether in safe mode or not,private browsing even with hardware acceleration disabled , it won't load pages . For example when I luckily arrived to open a page containing links , when I try to open those links on a new tab, the tab won't load the page at all, I have to keep opening tabs till at least one successfully opens , sometimes I have to try twice or three times to get it open on a new tab, I tried the same with a new window, same problem. I saw that there are others who had the same issue and probably still have this issue till now. I dare to say this is a bug that need to be fixed. I had disabled all add-ons ,no luck, even uninstalled FF and removed firefox profiles, no luck. However FF is working fine on my other PC, both are windows 7. I don't want to go back to Internet explorer, Chrome is fine but I liked FF.Please share your solution if you had this issue resolved. FF developers, please provide some fix. By the way, I tried the beta FF version 61 ,I have the same issue as well.

As question says:

Ability to create discarded tabs (unloaded). Tabs should find favicon from cached url if available. If not, use just default favicon. Also there should be a parameter for titles, an array with titles should match the url length.

In case of windows.create, first tab should be loaded, as usual. chrome.windows.create({url: [], title: [], discarded: true}, function(window) {}); chrome.tabs.create({url: "your url here", title: "your title here", discarded: true}, function(tab) {});

Hello,

I have been trying to reinstall firefox developer edition for the last 45 min. I am trying to install firefox without it importing my old data like passwords etc. I have tried deleting the folder that gets created when I uninstall firefox on the desktop but it just keeps importing anyway. I have tried removing the sync account but still no result.

How do I install firefox developer edition without it importing everything everytime?

Kind regards, Robbert

Firefox Developer Edition does not refresh

Double-post: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/50475736/firefox-developer-edition-doesnt-refresh

I'm working on a Wordpress-site (using https) and I use Firefox Developer Edition (61.0b7 (64-bit)) to see and test my changes. But whenever I make changes in the content or the display, these changes are not reflected in Firefox Developer Edition (FDE). I'm logged into the back-end in a a normal Firefox browser.

Things I've tried:

  • Normal refresh F5
  • Refresh by hitting ctrl+F5 and ctrl+shift+R
  • Options > Cookies and Site Data > Clear Data
  • Options > Cookies and Site Data > Block cookies and site data (may cause websites to break)
  • Reinstall the browser

If I for instance change the logo and the CSS of the menu, these changes does not appear in the FDE-window. But if I navigate to a page on the site that I have not visited in that browser before, the changes are there.

How do I make FDE refresh whenever I ask? Thanks for any suggestions!

Since DAY ONE Firefox has not allowed users to find misplaced folders because it has no feature to do so that actually functions for this task. There are outdated extensions and several methods that simply do not work yet for some reason folders containing other folders and bookmarks constantly disappear and are usally relocated into some other folder.

Sure, maybe we can remember a keyword for searching and can find an entire list of bookmarks that way but what about all of the others in the misplaced hierarchy of folders and bookmarks?

MOZILLA SUCKS BIG TIME IN THIS CONTEXT

They know damn well this has been a serious problem for years and have not responded when updating Firefox. They suck so bad they won't even write a tutorial that actually explains how to use SQLite for example to search through places.sqlite which will in fact at least identify the path where the misplaced folder(s) are located so a user can relocate back to where they can be seen and used.

I can use SQLite Browser to find bookmarks but not the folder they are in or the path where the folder is located.

Where's the tutorial for SQLite?

I am running Firefox Quantum 61.0b8 (64-bit) on Windows 10.

My issue: I originally had snippets on the bottom of tabs. Sometimes, I ignored them. Sometimes, I selected the "x" to remove them. Now, I have a white banner covering the bottom of web pages.

Additional details: 1. If I right-click the banner area, I get a MS Windows dialogue box (display settings, etc.), even though it appears to be inside a Firefox window. 2. When I close Firefox, the banner disappears. 3. I cannot access the bottom of websites I frequent in full-screen because stationery links are now hidden under the banner. 4. Scrolling does not help, unless I resize the window. When the window is less than full-screen, the banner goes away.

What may have happened: I noticed the issue shortly after I missed clicking on the "x" on a message. Bad aim. I then tried selecting the "x" again, and it wouldn't close. I know. Makes no sense to me either. But, it is the only somewhat related moment I can remember before this happened.

This is what I've done so far (not in any particular order): 1. I unchecked, checked, then unchecked the "snippets" box on the Options home tab. 2. I closed Firefox and re-opened it in safe mode twice. 3. I refreshed Firefox once. 4. I re-booted my laptop.

Any recommendation is appreciated. Screen shot attached.
