After my Browser automatically updated to 88.0.1 (i unfortunately ignored the popup to update Firefox for a while) i started it and my Login data was gone. Extensions, Bookmarks, anything other than Lockwise Data was still there.

I made an account (this one) as i previously did not have one in hopes of somehow fixing that; then after searching for solutions i checked for an "old data" file (does not exist) and checked about:profiles (i have a second profile named "default" that has absolutely zero saved data on anything, i dont know where it came from or wheter it was ever used). The profile that i use ("default-release") was active and that was that.

Then i checked Appdata/Roaming/.../theprofile (from the profile page) and was relieved to find that both "logins.jason" and "logins-backup.json" contained my Login data: The Username and Password (encrypted), formSubmitURL, giud, enctype, etc. I made a completly seperate backup in case something i do ends up deleting those. Since the passwords are encrypted i cannot add them one by one to Lockwise.

I dont know why they dont appear when i check my Login data or try to use the data on any Website. Can i manually "import" the file into Firefox so that it automatically decyrpts the passwords?

When I open Firefox with a dozen tabs showing, Task Manager typically shows Firefox to be using 1.3% CPU, 715 MB Memory and 0.1 MB/s Disk. However, as soon as I open www.walmart.com in a new tab, Firefox CPU goes up to between 34% to 52%, Memory to 13,900 MB and Disk to 50 to 200 MB/s. If I reboot, it is repeatable. I have an AMD Ryzen 5 3600 with 16 GB. What's going on?

How to upgrade Firefox 88 to Firefox 104

Hello - I've been looking around the Firefox site, and the Internet in general, and so far haven't found out the answer to my question: how do I get Firefox 104 to work on my Linux Mint 18.2 Cinnamon Sonya 32 bit? Specifically what I haven't been able to determine is whether or not I first need to upgrade my Linux, which I suspect. And if so, what's the minimum level of the OS that is required? I may be overlooking the simple answers, but so far I cannot find them. And so far the Firefox website upgrade feature does nothing that I can detect. Thank you for any assistance - Doug.

Mozila VPN on Android sometimes appear to automatically turn itself off.

The explanation could be in your settings on Android: Go to settings, - select Apps, - - choose Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Battery and select background Use,

go back to Mozilla VPN in the list, - - - go to Mobile Data, - - - - turn On "Allow Background Data Usage" - - - - turn On "Allow App while Data saver is On"

now your VPN shouldn't turn off any longer.

When restarting your phone the explanation why the Mozilla VPN is OFF is that to keep your security, the app requires re-authenticating with their servers (new encryption key).

I'm sure I'm not alone in having an old email address stripped off the server when changing broadband supplier. Unfortunately, most services use email as user ID, hence I have an old F'fox a/c - my first - for which I have long since forgotten the password, which uses just such an email. As a consequence, I can neither change the email nor delete the a/c - F'fox seems to insistst on a user knowing a/c password in order to change email (understandable), or delete the a/c (slightly less understandable). So it 'helpfully' tries to send a password re-set link to ........the a/c email, which of course no longer exists & thus I cannot access. May be just my (mis)perception, but because this was my first a/c, F'fox seems to default to the now inaccessible a/c - one reason why I wish to delete it. Is there another method whereby I can delete this old a/c, or is it doomed to wander the ether for eternity?

I would like to disable the "Confirm Upload" dialog when uploading files on a web page. I need to do a lot of uploading and confirming every time is really hampering my work flow, especially since I can't even confirm with a keystroke.

Is there a config setting or option to disable this on a per site or global manner? I can't find any info in all my searches.

Thanks

I am happily running Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012). This OS allows me to use my many 32 and 64 bit apps and have excellent control of my laptop. My bank is saying that my browser (Firefox 88.0.1) needs to be updated. When I check system requirements at mozilla, any newer Firefox claims to need an intel x86 processor INCLUDING the version of Firefox I am now using. My Mac has an intel Core i7 processor. When I click on about Firefox, I'm offered to update to 109.0.1. Will this update actually work for me without losing any functions I already have? Is there a better choice for my Mac and Firefox?
