New computer (Windows 11) shows 'Old Firefox Data'. Opened hidden files. Using File Explorer found Profile Folder & renamed it 'old'. Copied and pasted 'Old Firefox Data' as new profile. Firefox would not open. Had to remove etc and Firefox worked again. Thought this maybe the easiest way to get my Bookmarks back.

PS Presume Profile Folder does not contain Thunderbird Addresses?

I can log into preply.com with Chrome and Edge, but always have problems with Firefox. I was able to log in once, but after that, I can't log back in.

Recently I had to reinstall Windows, and saw the opportunity to try getting this to work. Installed Firefox, but *before* I logged into Mozilla Sync (so I'm working with a 100% fresh installation with no history of having Firefox installed) I tried to log into preply.com. It worked. Then, I log myself out and try to log in again, and once more, I can't log back in. I'm attaching a screenshot of what I see when I try. Please note -- I have no bookmarks, no extensions, no addons, no browser history. Everything is tabula rasa.

I found this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-login-issues-on-websites-require-passwords

and followed it to the letter, meticulously, to no avail. I still can't log into the site with Firefox. Chrome and Edge, yes. Firefox no. I only have Edge because I can't uninstall it. I only have Chrome for situations like this, where Firefox doesn't work. Firefox is my main browser, and I really, really would like to figure out what's happening. I can't understand how this problem persists when the browser is freshly installed; I haven't imported one bit of data yet from my sync account.

Can someone more experienced than me please help?

I am trying to log in to the Tesco retail site, and get this message: Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.tesco.com/account/login/en-GB?" on this server. Reference #18.26cc19b8.1700734342.438f9dd8 This is a new problem - it was working fine a week ago, and I have made no intentional changes to the Firefox settings. I went to the Settings: Enhanced Tracking Protection, changed it to Standard, and added the Tesco site as an exception (this was following the advice on some other "Access Denied" posts) but it made no difference - I still can't log in. Everything works fine on Chrome, but I would prefer to keep using Firefox if possible. Any suggestions? Thanks

Hi - I just reset my PC and trying to restore Firefox. I saved the default release folder (qejikze4.default-release-1669319412153) which contains the latest bookmarks in the "bookmarkbackups" folder. I tried to just replace the bookmark file in the new install (how I previously transfered them), but I can't find the files in the latest V.120 version. Any suggestions on how I can do it?

Moderators, I am copy and pasting the below warning I have seen on similar posts at the top of the post.

--- WARNING: This script is not provided by Mozilla and is not officially supported Creating a userChrome.css file and other ways of customizing Firefox that are not exposed in the interface are there for developers, not end-users. If it were intended for end-users, you would see a menu option or checkbox; you wouldn't have to hack a text file in a hidden location.

What this means is that even though the functionality you want is no longer supported, a third-party has found a way to do it using the CSS file. If it breaks in new versions, you will need to contact the person who provided the script.

[Warning was not added by moderator, but by me to save someone time.] ---

With that out of the way, here's the issue I have, how I've solved it temporarily for the community.

When I load YouTube videos, I am given a statuspanel message with the URL of the video playing. It's not momentary or temporary, it stays there, the entire time. Why anyone thought this was a good idea, I'm not sure.

My question is simple, is there an alternative solution - to remove this statuspanel message permentantly - to what I'm sharing here, without using the userChrome.css file?

If so, please provide the solution so it can be tested and upvoted by the community, thank you in advance if that is you.

If there is not, then this post also serves as solution as well as a request to Modzila, that being.

Modzilla. Please make a solution that doesn't need custom .css scripts.

I am posting this as I needed multiple posts to achieve a solution so am hoping this serves as that for someone (including myself) until Firefox resolves this issue themselves, another way.

Solution: Windows 7/8/10/11 as of Firefox version 120.0

1. Go to about:config, click Accept the Risk and Continue 2. Type "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets", toggle this to true 3. Close all instances of Firefox 4. Open Explorer, navigate to %appdata% then navigate down to \Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles and select your profile folder. If you only have 1 it may be obvious, if not for me it's the only "~.default-release" folder, where ~ is a random set or letters and numbers. If you're unsure, pick the first folder named like this, then repeat the next steps for all profile folders, or use trial and error if you prefer until you achieve the desired result. 5. Make a new folder "chrome" in that folder. 6. In this folder make a new .css file, right click make a new .txt file rename the file and extension "userChrome.css". 6. Open the blank .css file with a text editor and paste this line without quotes "#statuspanel {display:none!important;}" and save. 7. Attempt to load videos or pages where messages usually appear in the bottom left and observe the results

There are various other posts both here and other places that I have combined to write this solution, none of the others worked on their own, for me, which is why I write this and to refresh the request to the Modzilla Firefox team, to please, share or make a solution so we don't have to do this, as you'll otherwise need to continue supporting this legacy feature in future versions of Firefox.

Note: This will likely remove all statuspanel messages on other pages too, I have read other statuspanel commands online so if you want to be particular about muting some and not others, you may need to modify the file further.

Hi, I got a new laptop recently and ever since then I've been experiencing this problem. Websites like https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com or https://ukutabs.com offer the option to autoscroll, so that you can play your instrument without having to pause your playing and scroll further yourself. This feature hasn't been working for me ever since I got my new device and since it's various sites, I suppose the problem must be in the browser itself, I just can't figure it out. In the case of Ultimate Guitar, when I click autoscroll, it does move slightly, once, but then stops again, and you'd miss the movement if you're not paying close attention. I can switch between various speeds on this site as well, but it doesn't do anything. In case of Ukutabs, there's not even any kind of response from the site when I click the option. I tried turning on and off Firefox settings concerning autoscrolling and smooth scrolling, but nothing solved my problem.

Thank you for your time and energy, everyone!

Hello, from Terminal Servers, it is not possible to browse the Internet via FortiGate's explicit proxy from the Firefox browser, while there is no problem with Chrome or Edge. When the user tries to browse external sites, the proxy sends the error page "You need to authenticate to use this service". It seems that Firefox does not pass user authentication to FortiGate. The proxy authenticates users per session via Kerberos tickets.

Firefox version: 115.5.0esr

I also performed the following settings to pass the Kerberos ticket to the proxy without success: https://people.redhat.com/mikeb/negotiate/

I also noticed that it is not possible to change the "network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxies" setting from "false" to "true." Is this my problem? Is it normal that it cannot be changed?

Attached are the settings.

Thank you in advance.
