Essentially I had to reset my PC and restore it. However I did not have the intelligence to make a copy of my Firefox data / bookmarks / passwords etc.

I always have sync turned on and I assumed that when I logged back into my account after the restore my data would sync back down. Unfortunately for the life of me I can not get firefox to sync to my browser.

It's the only PC I had with Firefox so I can even restore from a different device. I'm at a loss as to what I could possible do at this stage.

Firefox, McAfee Web Advisor and BT Yahoo Email....Not Happy Together?

I use Firefox as my main browser on my Windows 10 Laptop. It has McAfee Web Advisor installed.

About a week ago, I discovered that I could no longer login to my BT Yahoo Email Account using Firefox while McAfee Web Advisor was enabled. They'd worked perfectly together until then.

Now, if I'm using Firefox, I have to disable McAfee Web Advisor when I want to look at my Emails.

BUT if I use one of the other browsers I have installed, I don't have to do this. My other three browsers, BT Yahoo Email and McAfee Web Advisor continue to work perfectly together.

Has anyone come across this problem and if so, is there a fix you could suggest, please?

As the Title suggests.

My Add-Ons are all removed from my Toolbar and stop functioning whenever I set my History settings to "Never Remember History."

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the Add-On's, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox. But none of this works.

I want to be able to use my Add-On's AND have Firefox not remember my history. It used to work before, but now it just won't let me.

Any suggestions?

I've been using Firefox on Windows for a very long time. When I switched over to Ubuntu, I kept using Firefox as my main browser. When I'm on Ubuntu and I try to switch tabs with Ctrl+tab, sometimes the the Firefox window closes and I don't get to access the previous session in Restore previous session in the hamburger menu or in history. Is this a Ubuntu problem or am I clicking on something I don't understand?

I recently switched to Firefox, it has a good at performance. Though, When I check My browser for Fingerprinting through https://panopticlick.eff.org/ , https://amiunique.org/ and https://www.deviceinfo.me/ It shows that my Firefox has Unique Fingerprint besides Firefox Strict Tracking Protection enabled.

How can I protect from Browser Fingerprinting or delete it ?

Like any privacy-conscious person, I do not want websites gaining access to my clipboard. I thought I had taken the necessary precautions, by setting the following preferences:

dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled => FALSE

clipboard.plainTextOnly => TRUE

Today, however, while writing in an online text box, I hit Ctrl+V and was horrified to see a very personal image inserted into the text box! (The image just happened to be in the clipboard.)

What is going on here? How could this possibly happen? Can sites still access my clipboard?

Hello :-),

I am working on an data privacy tool on python3 over Selenium. One requirement is to track all outgoings connections/cookies over Firefox.

Please see the first attachment for my Firefox configuration. When I have a look at the network tab in Firefox there are still some forbitten connections (2nd picture). How can I allow all of them?

I am using a dedicated profile for that crawling.

Thx for your help.

In Firefox on YouTube, if I go full screen, one thing is that it doesn't create a new desktop like real Firefox full screen does, it just goes full screen on that desktop. The other thing is that when I am on dual monitors, and that full screen Firefox video is in focus, the menu bar on the other screen is not there.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I use Firefox for everything except full screen video (and sometimes for work) for this reason.

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

Hola me parece interesante la folosofía de Mozila y me gustaría ayudar traduciendo algunos artículos al español, pero no me queda claro los pasos a seguir. Traté de contactar a uno de los líderes de proyecto mas no sé porqué me redireccionó a otro lado. Por otra parte el vinculo para iniciarse en SUMO parecía estar roto. Sería de ayuda si me escriben directamente al correo o pudiera ponerse en contacto conmigo alguno de los lideres de proyectos a ver cómo puedo ayudar en el proceso.

My firefox homepage/topsites seems to update thumbnails with image of different top site at times. How can I refresh or tell it to regenerate? I've attached a screenshot showing how the wrong thumbnail is now being used for nytimes and cnn.

I've searched for help and come across a few old bugs but nothing that fixes issue. Ideally I'd like to click on the image and have it refresh thumbnail from the (correct) site.

Thanks

Guten Tag Zusammen,

ich habe vor einiger Zeit einen bs.to Crawler erstellt, der soweit auch ganz gut funktioniert hat. Nach einem Firefox Update triggert nun aber das Google Recaptcha nicht mehr. Mein Python Script drückt nur den Button (siehe Bild): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Auch wenn ich manuell versuche, den Button zu drücken passiert nichts. Mit Google Chrome ist es das selbe. Wenn ich allerdings den normalen Firefox benutze, gehts.

Wenn man einen Blick in die Netzwerkanalyse riskiert, merkt man, dass dort auch nur ein Bild geladen wird (siehe Bild 2): https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html . Normalerweise sieht die Netzwerkanalyse so aus: https://www.file-upload.net/download-14 ... .PNG.html

Sprich, ich denke das ein click event nicht gestartet wird. Wenn ich es allerdings manuell per JavaScript versuche, komme ich auch nicht weiter. Ältere Firefox Versionen bzw. Geckodriver hab ich auch schon versucht, jedoch ohne Erfolg. Aber auch wenns da gehen würde, wäre das ja keine wirkliche Lösung. Hat jemand von euch eine Idee?

Vielen Dank schonmal!

Firefox Monitor notified me of a data breach of an account that was deleted automatically due to inactivity by LiveJournal.com eight years ago. How come my e-mail still got in the data breach that supposedly happened three years ago in 2017 and has just been discovered? It says the breach included e-mails and passwords. I don't even remember what password I used back then and the account is deleted, so I can't log in anymore. Is there anything I should be concerned about? How is this even possible in the first place?
