I just updated to windows 10, before I did I backed up my files on my firefox bookmark account. I went to to the restore thing, I saw all my stuff for a moment but after accepting the restore I can't get it to show. I still have my one Restore March, 31st option with 11 items appearing but nothing happens.

Hi When I log out of Firefox and then log in again the settings that I want have changed themselves. I want the following settings to remain but they don't.

Logins and Passwords Ask to save logins and passwords for websites Autofill logins and passwords Save History

All the logins and passwords that I want to keep appear in the list and most of the websites still log in as normal BUT there are a couple who insist I re-enter username and password and I don't want to keep having to do this. I have tried clearing all cookies and saved log ins for the problem websites and then re entered them after ticking the login/password option and it works fine. However when I end Firefox and then log in again these websites then insist I re enter everything. I have even deleted version 81 and managed to re-install an earlier version but that still fails.

Hi,

Ever since upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on both my laptop and PC, I've had trouble accessing Steam's websites due to bad certificate domains. I've included a screencap of the error message.

I tried contacting Steam about this problem, since its only on their websites the problem is. They told me that there was no error on their side, and that they suspect that I don't have an "up-to-date trusted root authority" stored. I don't know what that is, and had no luck contacting Windows about the problem. So far I haven't seen this problem appear anywhere I've looked for help, so I am trying posting myself here.

I have already tried: - Reinstalling the certificate automatically for the Steam.exe file - Flushing DNS config // Also tried connecting through Google's DNS server - Repairing Steam install (in case the problem came from the program) - Permanently disabling VPN software and AntiVirus programs from interfering with anything Steam-related - Resyncronizing time on the PC (almost the only solution I could find on the web, still didn't work)

I hope someone can help me.

Sorry, I am a lay, but this was the second time I got an award anouncement for the 1 Mil. search in Firefox. The link connects me to a page "utopia ...." presenting me 3 gifts for choice telling me a time limit of 5 minutes? This makes me unsure and I left the page.

Is this a real action of FIREFOX or is it a virus?

Links keep opening in a new tab, and the "Open results in new tab" slider at the top of the page is always on by default (I can turn it off, but the next time I open a new tab, it's on again by default).

Thanks!

Beginning about a week or so ago, I can no longer read pages from the Guardian. The page loads correctly but it has no scroll bar and so I can't read the article. I can *see* the entire article by shrinking the text, so I know it is there. For example, this page:

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/sep/23/california-cars-electric-vehicles-gavin-newsom-climate-change

is one that doesn't scroll [just to be clear: none do these days, but i just picked one, double checked that it couldn't scroll and posted it here]. I've looked at the page with ChrEdge and it renders [and scrolls] without a problem.

I haven't run into this problem with any other websites, so I dunno what's going wrong.

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

I'm trying to browse Reverb.com, and when I click on an item I want to look at, firefox opens in a new tab. This just started today after updating the Facebook Container add-on, and even after disabling the add on, the problem persists. I completely exited out of firefox and got back on, and Reverb is doing the same thing still. I don't want new tabs to keep opening every time I click on a new item, but to just take me to that page like normal.

I can't find anything in the options for firefox like keybinding or anything, and none of the other settings seem like they would address this issue.

Thanks for any and all help.

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

Using v.80.0.1 (according to FF/Help/About) on Win10-64bit. Cannot log into godaddy.com. Error message is "Yikes! Something went wrong. Please, try again later." Works fine with Chrome, so have to believe it's in FF. Tried changing various settings in Options/Privacy& Security. Anyone else having issues, or better yet, a solution??

Hey There,

whenever the window is inactive and i want to scroll the site (with a touchpad swipe) it instead navigates forward or backward. ONLY when the window is inactive. the behavior is the same with horizontal and vertical swipes. I've tried disabling the feature like described here (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/915174) but i had no luck with that.

i'm using firefox 78.2. on an opensuse 15 laptop. thought i might be an issue with that but with chromium i dont have that issue

thanks in advance.
