Hello,

Today is my first day back in the office after the pandemic; in preparation I set up a Firefox account at home and turned on syncing but it doesn't seem to have worked upon logging in at work.

Within the "Connected Services" section it shows two desktop computers which seems right (one at home, one at the office) but I don't have any saved passwords nor open tabs etc that I was expecting on the office PC. I get the option to "Send tab to device" but there are no synced tabs in there to open.

Can anyone help? I'm at a loss.

Thanks

So i have noticed a sudden changed in firefox when i open it and been landed over to my homepage instead of where i left before which usually as "about:newtab" page and in setting there is only option to use firefox default or blank. i would rather preffered to have my home button set with my custom url, as well keeping the option to land on newtab page when ever i start my browser. which was intended as before but not since last update. now there is no option to set newtab page as also a custom url which can be any thing but forced to use the default layout by firefox. that proceed to open a homepage every time when i launch firefox.

I'm a D&D player and am attempting to open this website from my primary PC in Firefox. https://tools.goblinist.com/5enc

It will open from the same PC in Chrome & Edge. It will open on my phone (safari). It will open on my other PC in Firefox, Chrome & Edge.

I tried everything I could find in this old thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290042 -I restarted firefox -I restarted PC -I clicked on forget this site -I have cleared cache, cookies & site data. -I have run the latest update from Malwarebytes (nothing found) -I deleted the cookies.sqlite file (no other cookies files found) -Running in Firefox safe mode made no difference -I have no extensions or addons installed -Theme is the default light theme

Any other suggestions?

I was quite unhappy with the new Firefox Proton design, so I made a CSS file and copied the following code from a website. However, I don't know what to do to (1) slightly reduce the tab height, (2) get back tab borders for inactive tabs and (3) remove the small gaps between tabs. How exactly do I have to change the following code to do so (ideally, for convenience, please just complete the code accordingly)? Thanks in advance for any support!

/*** Tighten up drop-down/context/popup menu spacing (8 Sep 2021) ***/

menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menuitem, menupopup:not(.in-menulist) > menu {

 padding-block: 2px !important; /* reduce to 3px, 2px, 1px or 0px as needed */ 
 min-height: unset !important; /* v92.0 - for padding below 4px */

}

root {
 --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;

}

/*** Proton Tabs Tweaks ***/

/* Adjust tab corner shape, optionally remove space below tabs */

  1. tabbrowser-tabs {
   --user-tab-rounding: 6px;

}

.tab-background {

   margin-block: 1px 0 !important;

}

Macbook Pro 15-inch, Late 2008 Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit) mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5

Problem is manifesting when I try and use Wordpress websites. Some fail to load or take some time. When editing in the backend - same issues, and when using Elegant Themes DIVI Theme on page editing does not work. Cannot open settings for modules, hovers over editable areas not behaving.

Looked at Console and it is showing this error repeatedly. Also showing many other errors too with Chrome and various OS functions.

9/15/21 11:56:25.614 AM firefox[1063]: stat on /Users/admin/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/eq2ony84.default-1556047105747/weave/commands.json: No such file or directory

First, what is the error and can it be fixed.

Second, would it be having any effect on the issues described.

Struggling to get my work done. Thanks for your insights.

I started using a MacBook Pro which has a bright touch bar where the function keys would usually be on a keyboard, but I like to customize it by removing most of the icons because it don't really use them. For Safari I went to View > Customize Touch Bar, but for Firefox I cannot seem to find that option in the menu bar. Is there any way to customize the touch bar for Firefox as well? Thank you.

Thank you, Fred McD for the links. I was able to determine that synch on my laptop is turned on so both computers should be talking to each other.

However, the one folder that is on my laptop and used to be on my desktop is still not on the desktop even though it is on the laptop. I have written down the websites and will add them to my desktop bookmark list individually. Fortunately, there are only a couple dozen websites in that folder so it will not take forever.

With the help I have been receiving from the Community for my various problems, I am becoming more confident moving around Firefox to do things such as changing my email address.

Thanks to everyone.

I need to download a certificate from a device in my networt called secunet Konnektor

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor

on the manual it's written how to do it.

https://www.secunet.com/loesungen/einboxkonnektor#c1607

I suggest to find a manual somewhere in the first link or in google:

chapter 7.4.3

go to chrome (same with edge)

click on the lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

somehow click on the button where you can open a small windows called "certificate".

The "General" tab shows informations about the certificate.

Click on the tab "Details" and click on "Copy file".

The certificate-assitent opens and after clicking on next, you choose DER-coded-binary X.509 (.CER)

Save the file somewhere where you can find it.

I can't do this on firefox

On firefox I can find a lock on the left hand side of the link https://XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX:8500/management

when i click on it and then on something else, i can then click on more informations.

a windows opens called "page informations"

under "security" i click on "view certificates" and a new tabs opens called "certificate for konnektor".

but there is no possibilty to download a cer-file. only a pem file and it doesn't really help me.

I have a dell xps 7390 2-in-1 one laptop loaded with Pop_os 21.04. (Linux) and vanilla firefox with no extensions installed.

The laptop is touch screen.

When I tap the address bar at the top, the onscreen keyboard opens up. i am able to type into the address bar. Hitting the enter key on the onscreen keyboard does nothing. I have to tap the little go icon.

If I repeat this activity using the mouse and keyboard. hitting the enter button works fine.

When viewing extensions in the overflow menu, items become cutoff. Sometimes a scrollbar will be displayed, allowing you to view the rest. At other times, you are not able to navigate to the other information at all. I tried to use ctrl + (+ or -) to try and zoom out, but only the size was able to become bigger or smaller, not the scaling.

Hello,

I just upgraded to firefox 92. When I right click on a string I wrote such as : "zaiuryezoyhdsofh" with spell check enabled, Firefox hangs for minutes and my CPU is 100%. It happens only on a string and on every websites, even google search.

I'm able to reproduce in safe mode, but FF doesn't want to crash so no report.

How do I change the timeout setting for connecting to a web server. I get the following message way too often: "The connection has timed out The server at xxx is taking too long to respond." This question is in the archives from 2015, but everything has changed and those about:config, search for "timeout" items aren't there anymore. I've tried a few there, but obviously not the right ones.

Greetings. I had to compose this using the Notes app on my Samsung S9+ because when I type into a "comments" box and select a word based on a partial spelling the word fails to appear. There is a brief flash of something but nothing sticks unless I fully type each word and not select the word from the choices offered. This does not happen if I use the Samsung browser. Very frustrating. Best wishes to you all. Take care. Sincerely, Terry

I have been a problem with Firefox not loading images from one specific site. Here is an example: https://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_mcdetail.aspx?Id=65966. When I click on the 'View the record image' link at the top of the page, I get no image. I have tried numerous settings and nothing works. Images display fine using MS Edge but I prefer Firefox if I can get it to work. Firefox used to work just fine. I have even created new user profiles numerous times. When a new user profile is created, the images load and display correctly. However, just about any change to the default profile causes the images to fail to load. Even something as simple as changing the home page causes the failure to load when absolutely nothing else has been changed in the default user profile. Any suggestions??
