I have re-installed my windows on my PC. Then after installing firefox I've signed in with my account. All my extensions are restored ind installed automatically. But there is no any of my bookmarks. I'm sure that is was synced before installing windows. However, now I don't have my bookmarks. Is there any way to check from server side, were my bookmarks saved or not. Maybe they are still on server but cannot sync to my PC?

LONG TIME USER..BUT NEVER EXPERIENCEd THIS BEFORE.

SINCE MS'S LATEST DISRUPTIVE 5 RECENT UPDATES, INSTALLING THEIR NEW EDGE BROWSER-- IT HAS PRACTICALLY MADE FIREFOX TOTALLY IMPOTENT OR USELESS. CANNOT ACCESS ALMOST ANY LINK OR WEBSITE ANY MORE.

HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO COPY & PASTE LINK THEN OPEN IN EDGE IN ORDER TO FUNCTION.

WHAT HAVE THEY DONE AND WILL FIREFOX RESOLVE THIS SOON? pLEASE ACKNOWLEDGE.

Hello, I should start by saying that I'm a technophobe so I admit I'm not very good at explaining my problem or understanding how to deal with it. A couple of weeks ago my tabs began crashing regularly. After researching online, I've refreshed Firefox, done a clean re-install, emptied the cache, disabled add-ons, tried safe mode and turned off hardware acceleration. None have made any difference. I'm up-to-date with Firefox and am using Windows 10. When I switch to Microsoft Edge I don't get any problems at all. I take this to mean that it's not a problem with my PC which has all the latest updates installed. I there anything else I can try? I'm not keen on Edge and would prefer to stick with Firefox. Incidentally, this tab has crashed twice whilst I was typing this message. Thank you.

Hello all -- I'm trying to follow a cricket match on https://www.espncricinfo.com/series/19497/game/1225249/england-vs-west-indies-3rd-test-west-indies-in-england-2020

They helpfully provide a reload every minute or so to keep you up to date with the scores and action. It works in Chrome and Edge but not in FF. I've told FF to allow pop-ups for this site but I can't seem to get it to work - I have to keep reloading the page manually.

Is there a way I can get the constrantly-reloading site to work automatically on FF?

78.0.2/W10

Thanks for any pointers.

Hello,

i have a problem with a personal webextensions, that i have written for my personal use. I add a new protocol in windows 10 pe registry (player://) and use this to start a special windows script.

My extensions put an new menu-entry on right click and rewrite the url from the tab with the the protocol (play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample).

Now he does nothing in the newest versions of Firefox. I use

browser.tabs.update({url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"});

and nothing happends. The tab.url says www.youtube.com, but nothing happends. But when i call

function updateFirstTab(tabs) { var updating = browser.tabs.update(tabs.id, { // active: true, // loadReplace: true, url: "play://https://www.youtube.com/asanexample"}); updating.then(onUpdated, onError); }

var querying = browser.tabs.query({currentWindow:true}); querying.then(updateFirstTab, onError);

and then an:

browser.tabs.create({

   		url:"https://example.org"
 		});

He loads the protocol page and the new created example.org page.

When i use tabs.create he call the protocol, like my old tabs.update code.

Is that an security change? But why tabs.update functioned when i call a tabs.create after it? When i must use tabs.create how can i seamlessly close the newly created tab after call the protocol?

I hope it is a bug in web extension;), why my code has functioned with the tabs.update() so many firefox version along.

thx

Vers 78 has changed the tab drop down combining under an extension, named "Close Multiple Tabs", the functions "Close Tabs to the Right" and Close Other Tabs".

How do I get theses two sub-functions back under the main heading? These are the functions of the tab drop down I use the MOST.

Typing text into the address field triggers a search, even when the separate search field is enabled and the "address field search" is disabled in preferences

Since one of the last updates (currently using 78.0.2esr on mac), the address field doesn't behave as expected and not as it did before: For example, when I type "wiki.dtpd.loc" into the address field, Firefox should open this (local) Webpage. Instead, it triggers a Google search for the term "wiki.dtpd.loc". My Firefox is configured to show separate address and search fields, and NOT to use the address field for search suggestions, so this shouldn't happen.

It is annyoing, 'cause I can't access my local pages without alway prefixing them with http:// or https://

Is there a solution? Is it a bug?

Thanks ;-)

Hi, I just did a clean reinstallation of windows and it deleted all my files. I installed Firefox and logged in to sync bookmarks and tabs, but I realized I hadn't activated tab sync. So in a desperate attempt to restore them, I tried the Restore option in Archives. And it restored to the Firefox version before i had synchronized my bookmarks, the bookmarks was gone and before I could react it had already synchronized. Now my bookmarks are gone aswell. I tried looking for a profile in the Appdata\Roaming Firefox folder but I can't find any profile from before the wipe.

Is there anything I can do to get my bookmarks back? Or are they completely lost?

Yo moved form Google search to yahoo search. I left yahoo years ago as I was hacked every other day and they do not care about security at all and all their search page gives me is a list of more search pages not what I want to see, I want what I was searching for. I hate all things yahoo and since you are making it so hard to leave ysearch I am now going to have to move to chrome which I do not love but at least google will give me things I am looking for not just a list of other search engines for it. I use firefox at home and work but now will leave it permanently as I really hate all things yahoo. I tried to get help this is all they told me I could do

(See photo attached) I find it very disturbing that Mozilla is calling for active censorship on the Internet. I am against racism but it is my belief that everyone should decide for themselves what their views are rather than being coerced into doing so.

Facebook also has a notoriously strict moderation team, so I don't know why your going after them to censor even more.
