Bonjour, J'ai supprimé par inadvertance les identifiants de Firefox pour iOS - je croyais que Lockwise allait remplir les champs à la manière de Lastpass (!)... Quand la synchronisation s'est faite avec le mac, j'ai perdu tous mes identifiants aussi sur Firefox browser - bizarement quelques jours plus tard alors que la synchronisation se faisait bien entre temps pour l'historique . J'ai arrêté Firefox Sync et j'ai pu récupérer une sauvegarde de mon profil. Sauf que quand je synchronise à nouveau, mes identifiants disparaissent ! Faut-il que je crée un nouveau compte ? Merci par avance pour vos réponses. C'est très ennuyeux. Je n'utilise pas d'autre navigateur/gestionnaire et tous mes mots de passe sont là.

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

Sorry, I wasn't sure which topic this question fell under. I created my Firefox account in 2017 and have forgotten my Password. However, since creating my account in 2017, I've NEVER SIGNED OUT. Until I hopefully remember my password, I don't plan too.

Question - If I am signed into my Firefox account, as I have been since 2017, and get to a point (when updating or changing my settings, add-ons, etc) where it asks me to re-enter my Password, is there a set number of password sign in attempts before it locks me out? And, if it locks me out after so many incorrect attempts, does it also sign me out of Firefox as well OR do I stay signed in? Hopefully I explained my question.

I really don't want to lose my data with Password reset, so I'm trying find ways help me recall my correct Password. Thanks for any info. Kurt

How do I get Domain Guessing to work in private windows? The address bar automatically adds 'www' and '.com' to URLS in regular windows and tabs but it does not do this in Private Browsing Windows. Is there a setting I'm missing or is it even possible in Private Browsing mode?

Some sites like OP.GG have a black stroke on letters. I've already looked at other forums and options.


Settings > Language and Appearance > Fonts and Colors > Advanced > Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above. This method does not work along with disabling high contrast (disabled already)

Any sort of help would be appreciated except telling me what I already did. Thank you

So I had a crazy number of bookmarks, many duplicates. I did a major cleanup of dupes. I now see about 20 "other Bookmarks" folders in my MENU. I tried consolidating them, moving their order in the list, deleting, etc. The act like a ghost in the machine.

Lots of strange behavior: If I drag to reposition, it makes a duplicate, they multiply on their own....

I use my sessions and wonder if it somehow related. I don't want an others bookmarks showing up in my list, I'm grouping via folders according to what i want to see, and other bookmarks ain't it. Especially unruly multiples of such. All I have found was how to hide on the bookmarks toolbar, which I do not like, nor use.

Thank You Kevin

I was changing my language setting in Firefox (only) from English (US) to English (UK)(the only other option was English-Canada) as I am in Australia and we use the United Kingdom spelling anyway. Within Firefox itself (not emails or off site pages) it STILL insists that COLOUR is spelt wrong & it allows me to spell NITE (not day) incorrectly. i have an Oxford dictionary in front of me & can reference a WEBSTERS all day long. There are many, many countries that have English as their primary language, Ghana is one & some South Pacific Islands (now the French have buggered off) The Seychelles off Africa have English as their official language & you can bet 'they' would have odd spellings. So no English (Australian) that's why the word Galah doesn't even get a look in. A Galah, by the way, is a VERY common Australian bird & in anyone's language. I'm guessing there is NO American word for Cockatoo too. I will have to look that up in my Funk & Wagnalls. Funk & Wagnalls was an American publisher known for its reference works, including A Standard Dictionary of the English Language, and the Funk & Wagnalls Standard (reference Wikipedia). Well, well, not only Webster trying ton undermine (Bastardize) (its actually S not a Z) standard English but Fucken Wagnall was in on it too!

Anneeeway just a heads up. using Firefox Browser (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Ultimate (Service Pack 1) I guess support for Win7 will be gone soon anyway Microsoft will see to that.

Looking for a suitable LINUX replacement. Thanks, bye.

I recently reset my computer because of performance issues. When relaunching FireFox, MSN is now my Home Page. I never selected or used MSN, but its there and I can't get rid of it. I have tried several times via the Settings tab, I have also tired on several occasions to drag a different tab to the Home Page Icon, but MSN just won't go away. I also tried to restore to an earlier version of FireFox, but no success. When working on the Settings tab, there is no "save" option. Is that normal?
