There is no link on FF any more that leads me to a way to print or download.

Looking for months for relief, I find online help that refers to a “Menu Button”, which AFAICT isn’t there, and when I try the three-line button, nothing is there that the help file says it is.

This is a large part of FF’s usefulness to me, so it’s a burden to work around these two items with messaging, email, etc.

Is there a straightforward way to print a .pdf or download it?

Thanks.

I have been a long time user of the Firefox app on my iPad and never needed to setup 2 step authentication back when it was first installed. I also have Firefox on my iPhone and PC using them without a issue. I know both my user-id and password for my Firefox account. I removed the app from my iPad thinking I had a connection problem, reinstalled it and now when I attempt to login Firefox instructs me to "open your authentication app" and get a 6-digit code to enter for verification. At this point, I am lost. After some searching online for a Firefox authentication app, I think I figured out that Firefox uses the Google authentication app. So, I downloaded the Google app. Well, those instructions (or lack of) are even more confusing. This app ask me scan to a QR code or enter a setup key to get started with adding a account. My question now is, where do I get either of these? There are no instructions in this regard. I gather i am simply unfamiliar with using authentication apps.

I am at a lost on how to proceed.  I need some uncomplicated instructions on how to overcome this hurdle and get access to my Firefox app on my iPad back!

Good day.

I use Firefox 94.0.1 and the latest version of CCleaner. I sometimes use the "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

My situation:

1. In Firefox, settings for clearing history, Cookie, Site settings and Cache boxes are NOT checked.

2. I do some surfing. Then I'll look in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, and I see cookies.

3. *Without closing the browser*, but closing any active tabs and leaving *one* inactive tab (blank) in place.

4. I will, for instance, hit the "Clear Storage Button" - which is set up to clear cookies.

5. Looking back in the FF "Cookies and Site Data" - Manage Data, the cookies have been removed.

6. Launching CCleaner, then Options, Cookies: cookie data still shows up!!!

7. I repeat the process, same result.

8. If I then *close* FF and look again at the CCleaner, Options, Cookies, the cookies info is gone.

This is the same result with using either "Clear Storage Button" and "Cookie Auto Delete" addons.

So the situation I have is this:

- I can remove cookie data from FF using an addon.

- As long as I don't close FF completely, CCleaner will still show cookie data.

- Once I close FF completely, then cookie data in CCleaner goes away.

- Please look back at #1 above.

It seems as though an addon can delete cookies in FF, and FF shows they have been deleted, but CCleaner is still picking up some residual data from FF, or so it appears.

Sign me, "Got me boggled".

Thanks for any help.

As the subject describes, installing Bing Wallpaper causes the vanishment of icons of the six default search engines in my region (China Mainland), i.e. Baidu, Wikipedia (actually the icon of Wikipedia is still there), Bing, Google, Amazon and DuckDuckGo, but these search engines themselves are still usable though. It is probably caused because I chose the choice that setting Bing as my default search engine of all browsers and the application (Bing Wallpaper) reset all those engines. I have tried removing these engines from my settings list then adding them back, but the icons are still invisible. I have not tried to uninstall and reinstall my Firefox.

I recently updated to IOS 15.1. Now video playback from streaming sites doesn't work in Firefox Focus. This is not an isolated issue. It appears that other browsers aside from Safari are affected as well. So doubtless Apple has deprecated something which everyone else is using. I'm using Firefox Focus 39.0 (8631) IOS 15.1 Iphone 8 plus 128GB Same issue with Chrome. Was some issue with Safari at first but was able to disable GPU rendering of video. Then video streaming worked. There doesn't seem to be a corresponding setting in Focus. Apps like Youtube, Twitter and Instagram seem to be unaffected. However those have updated recently.

I do not achieve to get rid of this message related to a deleted item in the agenda, as it seems the agenda in thunderbird wants to synchronise with the the agenda in gmail agenda where the data are stored.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Thunderbird recently updated and I lost ALL my emails :(

I am using IMAP - now the emails have synced they are also gone from the ISP server.

I googled some solutions and can see in the /user/appdata there is a folder called "mail" which looks like it has all my old inbox folders and msf files .... however the new Thunderbird update looks like it is using a new folder structure "imapmail" which I can see does not have any of my old emails folders or msf files in there.

I copied all the files from the "mail" folder over to the "imapmail" folder and relaunched Thunderbird. I can now see the old folder structure under my inbox however I get an error message when I go into the folder "unable to open the summary "xxx". Perhaps there was an error on disk, or the full path is too long"

When I right click and go to folder properties there is no location path.

I need my emails and so disappointed an update has caused me to loose EVERYTHING ... please help!
