Since the update to version 93, I have noticed a couple of issues. At times a tab may freeze, other times the entire thing will freeze. The other issue I seen is occasionally the screen will flash white and the return back to normal. This happens with no particular pattern and I usually have 4-5 tabs open at a time

Has anyone had these issues and any suggestions appreciated ? Thanks

Hi,

Apologies if this question has been asked already, but I seem to be in a catch 22 that I can't get out of. I have an existing FF account that I have the email and password for and can log in to. The primary email address is my old work email (which I no longer have access to) and the secondary email address is my personal email (which I do have access to). It seems in order to make ANY changes to the account, I need to have access to the primary email address (which I can't get). So now my personal email address can't be used as a FF account as it's already linked to another account. It there anything I can do here?

Also, is this not a security flaw? That I could add someones email as a secondary ID and tie up that address?

I just logged in my firefox account and my history, bookmarks and passwords are not here. I synched before reinstalling my pc again. I see in the password window that there's a option to import password. If my mozilla firefox account doesn't synch my password why use it them. I'm guessing there's a issue somewhere. Please help.

Hi,

Currently I'm facing an issue with Firefox relay alias. I logged-in in multiple devices using Firefox relay alias and I'm not able to sync multiple alias title on my devices. Please check below SS. In attached image you will see "games" title on alias. When i log-in to the devices that title don't sync. I can not remember those alias which i use in various sites. so those titles help me to remember and categorize for which type of sites I used this alias. For ex: shopping, games, online streaming, etc...

Second issue is when i open signup page the alias don't show me options to select previously generated alias Id to login.

Please help me with that issue and let me know how can i use

Major colour descrepancies across Firefox

Hi.

I attach a photo that illustrates the huge difference in the way colours are rendered by Firefox. On the left, an iPad Air 4th Gen (15.01) and on the right a MacBook Air M1 (11.6). One would question if it was the same image. If I flip to Safari on iPadOS, it renders ~the same colour as Firefox on my M1. If I then save the image to "Photos" from either Firefox on MacOS or iPadOS and Safari, I get exactly the same colour rendering for all the images saved.

So it looks like Firefox is getting it badly wrong on iPadOS (the same with iOS 15.01) when it presents its colours. It doesn't matter if I'm in Dark or Light mode. I'm using Verion 92

As a keen fan of Mozilla, I prefer using Firfox as my default browser, but if there are these colour issues I'm a bit wary of replacing Safari on my iPad!

Thanks Tom

Did Firefox 3.6 history include the typed in search terms used? It was in 2011 on a Windows Vista PC.

Could they be recovered from a deleted history record?

An 'expert' is claiming that he has recovered, from deleted Firefox 3.6 history file, the data shown in the image, the red type is what it he claims I typed in!

I do not believe that this is possible, most of what he claims is technobabble, but I need verification.

Can you cast any light on the situation?

Thanks

Since the last update, I have found a problem with BT webmail. For my 3 different ....@btinternet.com email accounts, since the update, when I save an email to the drafts folder, then re-open it to edit and send, I can no longer re-save or send an email that comes from the drafts folder. Pressing the send or save buttons does nothing. New emails started and sent straight away (without going into the drafts folder) are not affected and still work perfectly, only those saved in drafts. This is a feature I use a lot - are you aware, and can it be fixed next update?

Hello, I'm using Ubuntu 20.04, and the newest Firefox (i.e. 93.0). For a long time already I have very irritating issue: I have 2 profiles: Company (default) and Personal (secondary). Company profile is marked as default. Personal profile I'm using for my personal email account, youtube, facebook etc. The issue is that whenever I have opened 2 FF instances, with those 2 separate profiles, I never know in which instance of FF the link will open. It's soooooo frustrating. Mainly I'm opening links from company Slack or email, and I never know in which Firefox link will open. Is there any option to set it? I would except that all links will open in the default profile ("Company"). Br, Marek

I allow FF to save some passwords and some I do not want saved. The other day I was logging into a site where I do not want my password saved and FF filled in my user name and password. I didn't think I inadvertently saved it but it could happen. I checked the saved logins and it was there. I removed it. The next time I went to log in to that site FF again filled in my info. I went to the manage logins and it was not there, yet FF is still filling in the info. This is super annoying and inconvenient as I have multiple accounts for this site yet it wants to continue to use this one login. How do I get this issue fixed.
