Firefox allows the show password option in the firefox password manager This is an extremely dangerous situation as it gives someone access to all your passwords if they have your windows login and your Firefox password is saved in Windows.

This means that if you save your Firefox password to Windows, and someone gets access to your PC, they can get a copy and read of all of your account names and account passwords in the Firefox password manager.

Access opporrunities for example are a technical support person working on your windows account.

A security update should change this to encrypt stired passwords and remove the show password option in the Firefox Password Manager.

Hi,

I am currently running FF 89 (64bit). I noticed just after that update the bookmarks had changed. I have a lot of folders and had a Chrome.sss file to change the empty outline to the more traditional yellow icon. I know there were other things in that sss file that I had added to adjust the basic FF displays. However, I have searched my computer and cannot find the Chrome.sss file.

Is there any way to find this file instead of having to regenerate it and relearn the changes I had made?

Why does FF not leave the Chrome folder and sss file instead of seemingly delete them?

I also do not like the black background and white text that pops up when I right click a bookmark. That combination is very hard on my eyes. Is there an easy way to get black type on a white background or maybe a light grey background?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Mozilla on Edith Av?~ Some background....Issue Lost Sub folders on left side panel after Geek Squad did an update on line, while I slept 6/7. On 6/8 I returned to email Thunderbird mail Client. Yikes my 130 or so customized Sub Folders, were missing,only 30 or so remained. I returned to second agent on line, and here is what happened he saw the files, but could not, move or open with and email listed. NOTE :I have unlimited tech support and have a great local agent at Best Buy MT View,CA, not far from Mozilla on Edith AV, so my request is for instructions for local Agent, Paul to solve the issue. I have included exactly what Paul tried.I am working in house now.

1) What I have...Desk Top Dell Window 8.1 Version 78 Thunderbird Client/ Earthlink.net/ and Att service.I have an external hard-drive and Norton 360 Deluxe Cloud(cloud was not activated by mistake,turned on now). My computer was updated, on line by Geek Squad over night while I slept 6/6 . I returned to email later on 6/7 and then saw out of my 130 sub folders,now had only 30 or so left. Sadly when called Norton, the CLOUD was not activated on this computer, it was on my laptop. Now it is activated. I have a second laptop /windows 10/ Norton 360 Deluxe WITH CLOUD always on.This laptop has about 30 sub folders,Version 38.

2) As I mentioned, I called to back toGeek on Line 6/7, and the agent DID find the the sub folders,but could not bring them BACK to panel. When we opened these files, you see mixed up code. No Text. I asked him to make a copy of all 130 or so of Titles, and he used PAINT and stuck them on the desk top. He sent me back to the Best Buy Store, to see my in house support.

2) I brought both computers to Best Buy. Here are the steps that Paul tried at MT View Best Buy. I am pasting to bottom of this request. He is a wizard, and we need your help to my email and I will send to him. My email is isail2@earthlink.net, phone is 650 704 3994 Palo Alto, Stanford Medicine, after 11am PST please since I' m working late tonight till 4 am. Paul did everything your support page said. No luck. We did not see it on external drive, and by accident my CLOUD was not activated,but is now.

3) Paul's attempts:

Created a new account on client computer and copied Thunderbird data into new account issues persist.

Added Thunderbird backup location to Norton backup and ran data backup.

Validated Norton data was moved to backup location

Attempted import-export tool to migrate data files from Blue Dell to Dell Desktop.

 Nothing appears to have migrated, even after multiple attempts of using the import-export add in.

Copied Mozilla Profile Data from Blue Dell to Dell Desktop

Thunderbird data was migrated to the Dell Desktop's desktop folder. Thank You, Sandra M Karol

Having used Thunderbird for some time, a frustrating change in the look of each e-mail happened without any (conscious) action from my side. A long list of technical information shows up in every mail: Return path, delivered to, received, x-original to, received, DKIM signature, Received, Contact type, date, from , Mme version, Message ID, List unsubscribe, X-SG-EID, X-SG-ID, X-RSpamd-queue id, X-spamd-result, X-spamd server.

It is particularly irritating if I forward things to others, as this massive chunk of info comes along. Does anyone know what I can do to hide this info again, please? Thanks!

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

Since the upgrade I have not been able to access sites I have used in Firefox for years. All the sites are at shockwave.com, such as https://www.shockwave.com/gamelanding/the-daily-snoop-a-hidden-object-game.jsp. I contacted Shockwave but they have no idea, just telling me to disable my add-ons such as ad blockers. That's no solution because (1) I've always had the same add-ons enabled and (2) the same add-ons do not affect MS Edge.

I attached a screen shot of the page I now see in Firefox and what it should look like.

Does anyone have a suggestion to resolve this issue within Firefox?

Thanks.

I have an older laptop and got a new one. I have installed Firefox 89.0 on both machines. I want to migrate all of the Firefox data from the old one to the new one. I have copied the Profile from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles to a thumb drive. I believe this to be all that I need to move to the new machine. The problem is that I don't know where to put it on the new machine.

I understand that Firefox must be closed when I modify the new machine. I also discovered that there is a Profile.ini file that has a pointer to the filename that Firefox will use when it is opened. Do I have to modify this file as well?

Perhaps I am on the wrong track and need to be redirected. If so, please point me to an article or wiki that will put me on the right one.

Firefox opens in a small box at the top left of the computer screen about 1/9 the size of the viewing area. I have to click on the "maximize" icon (the square box(es)twice to get a normal viewing screen. Note: I am not referring to "full screen." This began after the last Firefox update. I have cleared the cache, cookies, data, etc. and startup cache and restarted Firefox and the computer. I haven't "Refreshed" Firefox, yet, because I don't want to go through the hassle of putting everything back together if it isn't going to work. How do I get Firefox to open in a "maximized" window?

I have a W10 desktop with TB78 installed. I have several IMAP (Gmail) accounts and one POP account; the IMAP accounts still work, but the POP account (AT&T) will not send or receive messages (says password is incorrect). I checked my web email access (myAT&T) and it works fine (uses same password as TB account). I also have another W10 desktop that has TB68 installed, and it has the same problem. I have an old W7 desktop, and I downloaded TB78 to it, and it also has the same problem.

So the problem seems to affect both TB68 & TB78 and only affects the POP account. I have not changed anything in the last day. I tried disabling antivirus firewall and also tried lowering the TLS min to 1, but neither helped. The "saved passwords" for the SMTP account is correct

Any suggestions as to what happened and how I can restore that POP account in TB?

Thanks.
