Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you

I tried to login, Firefox would not recognize my password. I clicked on forgot password, didn't get an email. Tried twice. Opened up a new tab, went to login Firefox, put in my email as user name and my old password and it took. This is very confusing. MY Questions was to be: I start my computer (I don't leave it on all night) everything boots up, I click on Firefox icon and from there it takes minimum 40 seconds to 60 seconds to finally appear. Why is it so slow? Never use to be? Thanks for any answers you can give.

I experienced a Windows 10 bootup issue and decided to restore my Windows 10 OS from a (10-days previous) OS configuration. This corrected my Win10 boot issue, but when I ran FireFox it requested that I logon to my FireFox sync account to update my bookmarks. After logging in, nearly 4 years (hundreds) of well-organized bookmarks were gone and just a couple of bookmarks appeared.

I have a FireFox account with both my PC and Phone listed. When viewing the "FireFox Account" page, there doesn't seem to be anyway to view the state or status any files being maintained by the FF account. I am wondering if the the FF sync process somehow moved the few bookmarks on my phone onto my PC. (Note: I noticed my PC appears to be listed twice on the device list.)

I do have full backups of my PC available from a few months ago. So I either need to: 1) figure out if my "full" bookmarks set is recoverable from my FireFox account... or 2) I need instructions on how to bring back most of my FF bookmarks from a full PC backup from a few months ago.

Thanks for your assistance!

What happened to the address bar in update 65? It's awful. It use to only show my most visited bookmarks(ie:facebook) or websites I physically typed in. Now it shows everything but that. It makes it super cluttered and overall awful. I have tried messing with the settings and nothing works. I feel like I need to downgrade and disable automatic updates or move to a new explorer all together.

I just saw on my Firefox that I have the History saved from October 2018. Even if I delete for the last hour, the last week or All, nothing changed, everything is still there, saved. I try to change some settings like to delete the history everytime I closed Firefox, but the history is always there. I tried to delete site by site on the History and I'm not able to delete anything. Firefox is up to date. Thank you

I've done a search on the internet on how to find the auto fill facility. This search leads me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatically-fill-address-and-credit-cards which says I should click on the "Forms and Passwords" section which does not exist. There is, however, "Logins and Passwords" but nothing here to do with Forms. So my question is, how do I use the auto fill facility?

I love Firefox but updates are becoming annoying to the point of me not wanting to use it anymore.

It's bad enough there are so many updates, and it's bad enough that we have to mess about with CSS to customize Firefox, but having to redo the hard-gained custom CSS regularly leaves me speechless.

The CSS may be obvious to you folks, but for anyone not knowing the browser structure it's a time-consuming nightmare.

Rather than coming up with fancy new features a lot of people may not need anyway, please first make it more usable by adding options for features such as the tabs position and adjust the CSS behind the scenes.

The address bar used to save only the addresses I directly entered into it. Now I get everywhere I've visited, within the dropdown list's limit, or I have to uncheck "browsing history" from the address bar options and manually enter the address of my frequently visited sites. Neither is particularly handy for me.

Using bookmarks isn't going to work either, since I bookmark a lot of pages, not just ones I frequently visit. I'd still have to search through the bookmarks to find my frequently visited sites.

How do I get the address bar to operate the way it used to?
