Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

Thanks

Just wondering if anyone else is having the same issues, every so often, when I open a new tab and enter a website name and hit enter the tab closes and returns me to the main tab that I had open. It never happens twice in a row and is often unpredictable when it happens. Unsure if it is a bug or just some setting that might be causing it? I am using an up-to-date browser in a windows 10 environment. Thanks for any comments or suggestions.

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 have been using Firefox password manager on mobile for some time. More recently I have been using Lockwise. I also sync passwords with several computers/laptops with Firefox via Sync.

I would like to solely use Lockwise on mobile. What is the best way to disable the password manager in the mobile browser, without losing any passwords - either in my account or on synced computers.

Is it just a case of unticking 'Remember logins' or do I need to first untick 'logins' under the sync section "Choose what to sync"

I am mainly worried that if I do in the wrong order, all passwords will be deleted on synced accounts.

Hi,

This may be a bug (or perhaps two bugs).

I have a brand new iPad pro on which I installed Firefox. When I want to save a web page to iBooks it says "creating pdf", but when I then open iBooks no file has appeared. (When I do the same in Safari, it also says "creating pdf", but then it switches to iBooks, showing the created document.)

Further, when I view a PDF file on a page that requires me to log in, attempting to copy the PDF file to iBooks does create a file in iBooks, but iBooks says it can't read it. If I instead select a link to a PDF file and choose "download", then go to the downloaded files in Firefox's library and tap the file, Firefox itself cannot read it (it just displays a blank page). Note that this problem only seems to exist on pages where I have to log in.

In an attempt to find out what might be wrong in the second case, I opened a PDF file in Firefox, chose "share with Mail", sent it to myself, and had a look at it on my computer with BBEdit. It turned out that the contents of the file is actually html. It seems to be the html code of the login page. I get the same result when I look into one of the downloaded PDF files that Firefox has stored on the iPad.

Thankful for any help, because I'd rather avoid having to switch to Safari, Frank

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.

With a recent Mac OS update, I lost the ability to overlay the PiP over a remote connection screen. I can get the PiP to stay on the screen as long as I do not release the left mouse, but when I release it, it disappears like the remote connection screen is taking priority over the PIP.

Hi,

I use Thunderbird with a Mac (running Mojave), and I cannot open my preferences anymore. Nor can I open "About Thunderbird". In fact, nothing seems to work in the Menu "Thunderbird", I am not even able to quit. The shortcut "Command" + Q works to quit, but the short cut "Command" + , (which is supposed to open preferences) does not.

This is fairly recent, I noticed because suddenly I was unable to see images in messages, and thought I had to change something in the security preferences. Needless to say that problem isn't fixed either.

I restarted Thunderbird several times, restarted the computer, nothing changes. If you answer me, please do not be too technical, I am not very good with computers. Thank you in advance,

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.
