I am experiencing a problem with lockwise since months. In just few words I cannot see which password are stored and therefore I cannot even edit them (see the pict). The funny part is that the login/passwords data are there because I can use them after landing on any page where I have an account. That's to say that the only way I have to edit a password that I changed on a different browser is to visit the page and then change it. Another few examples? 1) If I enter in the search box any of the sites that should be (and indeed are) there, it cannot retrieve anything. 2) If I click insert new credential it does nothing (no box where to insert the new data)

Note! Browser update 94.0.2 (Mac) Logged in my FF account and Sync activated.

On macOS, with the proton update, there is a behaviour (taken from Chrome) that is to move down the tab bar when the mouse is going at the top of the screen and showing the menu bar. The issue is there's a massive gap that is incredibly annoying and will likely push me back to Chromium based browsers if not addressed. Every time my cursor goes up there I have this annoying gap pushing my tab bar too far down.

An example here: https://imgur.com/a/l7EeG2V

I find this behaviour irritating and would like, if possible, to disable it. Does anyone know if there is some about:config setting or userChrome.css that can do it?

Thank you

I used different methods like this one but it seems none of them are working. These are steps I'm doing:

  • Closing firefox
  • Deleteing new logins.json and key4.db
  • copying old logins.json and key3.db

However as soon as I open firefox it will create a key4.db file and overwrite login.json. I checked my old login.json is in correct format.

Hi, I realise this sort of thing is not exactly the end of the world but I'll ask anyway. In Proton, the background of the Settings page, about:config page and the Library window have changed to black [with white text]. Before, everything was white background with black text...is there any way at all to go back to that, without changing the Theme that I've been using for years? The Firefox colour settings change the Settings and about:config pages background to white but then you have the glaring white high contrast etc on every web page...and it still has a black background in the Library window, regardless of what colour settings I have there. I can change all this easily with some other theme or that Firefox Color addon [which is how I got the second picture below] but if that's the only option I would rather just put up with it as it is.

First pic is how it is now, second is how it always was before Proton and I want it to be again.

Thanks

Tried to sync with my XP computer, where the originals were, but it too was empty. Found JSONLZ4 files, two of them, one dated today and one dated yesterday. Both empty, is there any way to recover all those bookmarks?

Used to be my go-to browser; now I just use it to download stuff.

I often can't make online purchases whenever PayPal is involved; a pop-up window "doesn't," or a click-button is missing (like "complete purchase") or some such. I've had to fire up Chrome to make a purchase easily half a dozen times in the past several months to make a purchase.

NOW, it won't let me log in to my TracFone accounts, of which I have two. I use a password manager because it's impossible to keep track of 'em all. It fills in the fields correctly (I triple-verified this with my master spreadsheet of passwords), and I get an "invalid username or password" message every time, for either account. I can log in just fine with Chrome, same password manager.

I'm sure there's a fix, like flush the cache and delete all cookies and such, but really... I never used to have do to any of that, Firefox was rock solid and never gave me any grief, and then after some update was installed (can't say when), this stuff started up. It's starting to act like Windows, where I spend as much time wrestling with the OS as I do trying to use it (100% disk usage and other nonsense).

Am I the only one experiencing this kind of issue? Is there a bug-fix for any of it? If not, I'd like to submit one (two, if the paypal thing and the login thing have to be treated as separate problems).

Thanks for reading this.

"Homepage and new windows" setting allows "Custom URLs" as an option. "New tabs" setting allows only "Firefox home page (default)" or "Blank page"

Why is there no longer an option in "New tabs" for a "Custom URL" ??

Is this just another of those program designers' decisions of a less-is-more "improvement" . . . ? Well, it's not.

How can I return to having my Homepage URL also designated for new tabs?

Thank you.

Good People, Followed screen pop-up to make Firefox default browser. Now all *.pdf files have Firefox icons and open as .html pages, I think! Seen some solutions, but for older versions of windows and followed procedure: go to Adobe, Edit, Preferences, General, 'Select Default PDF Handler', as dialog Does not have Adobe Reader XI, step two was Change to Adobe Reader DC, clicked continue, but NO Windows Configuration Screen appears. Using Version 94.0.2 (64bit) with Windows 10. Also, help answer said not necessarily a Firefox problem, also within Adobe Reader. Not comfortable with changes to be made in the registry. James

I tried optimising firefox's settings for the most possible privacy. When i visit firstpartysimulator.org and complete the test, the result claims i do have a decent protection against tracking while my "software" is not checking for "do not track policies". By software im not sure if this is ment to be the operatingsystem or the browser, firefox. The result also shows i do have a nearly unique fingerprint. If i remove one of my current extensions -> canvas blocker, i do have a unique fingerprint. This is not good as i see it.

How can i make firefox (or windows if so) check for do not track policies? I noticed the duckduckgo addon claims to always check for do not track policies but im not sure if i really need this extension. Also do not track only works if the host website supports it as far as i know. To get this to an end, the question is 1, how to make us of do not track policies, 2 how can i make my fingerprint less unique? I only changed a couple settings in about:config and use a total of 3 browser extensions, this shouldnt be to much unique, or?
