Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at xvideos.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Hi there,

I just switched operating systems from Linux Lite to Linux Mint, and when I went to sign in to Firefox my email address wasn't recognized as having an account - there was no option to send a recovery email or anything, only to create a new account. I tried my other email addresses and the same thing. So I ended up creating a brand new account with my email address, but now I've lost 100's of precious bookmarks and passwords that were saved in Firefox.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Adrian

Dear Folks, I am new here, Introducing , my name is Pendragon... I've been searching for a solution for ages now, and i can't find it The question is : "HOW do I Set Firefox to open a new tab When opening a link within a Web Page Automatically  ? Reason: I find it very confusing, when the links I open (from the same web page) end up on the same TAB -->I never know how to shut the new page down eg by either clicking the back arrow or close the page (Black X)--> If I choose the wrong option, I loose the original page. Can anyone please suggest a solution? Many thanks

Can't Bookmark Tab/Tabs

Running Firefox 89.0, Win10. I usually bookmark all tabs in a window to a named folder under Bookmarks Menu, for example Folder1, Folder2, Folder3, etc. Recently, the dialog was stuck to a previous folder, lets say Folder2, as the default, instead of the normal default of "Bookmarks Menu". If I bookmark Folder4, it will want to put it under Folder2 as a subfolder, unless I manually change it to Bookmarks Menu, but the next time the default will go back to Folder2. After trying to manually set the default back to Bookmarks Menu, without success, I tried renaming Folder2, thinking the default will go back to Bookmarks Menu. This didn't work, Firefox chose the new Folder2 name automatically. So next I opened all the tabs in Folder2, deleted the Folder2 in the bookmarks manager, thinking that if Firefox couldn't find Folder2, it would fallback to the old default of Bookmarks Menu. Now when I try to bookmark anything, the save dialog is blank and the only thing I can click is the cancel button. How do I fix this? I have hundreds of tabs open, since the session manager I used to use is no longer supported, I was in the process of saving windows into bookmark folders. I'm worried that restarting Firefox will lose some of recent changes to my open windows/tabs state since the last time Firefox "autosaved?" my session

Thanks

Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?

Hi,

For a long time, Firefox has been crashing when I try to open the ADS-B website for tracking aircraft.

This problem is intermittent.

ADS-B is a huge aviation safety improvement.

Because tracking of military aircraft is often prevented, I attributed the crashing to a crash signal from military aircraft departing the nearby airport.

There are privacy concerns that have led to a new system for ADS-B.

There is also an unrelated FAA-offered blocking feature for radar tracking which allows aircraft owners to block radar data from being viewed by the general public.

Today I learned that it is impossible to paste anything to the Mozzila Crash Reporter block.

I haven't found a way to see any relevant crash report info in the Activity Monitor feature.

I haven't updated Firefox to the newest yet because the last time I upgraded I found that the appearance of the tab bar had been changed, and it took too long for me to return to the desired previous appearance.

It is often not easy to go back to a previous Firefox edition.

I understand the need to solve problems via upgrades, especially security problems, but now our late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina is stopped at OS 13.6, and perhaps also stopped at Firefox 99.0.1?

Perhaps security fixes will soon be impossible.

Thanks for your consideration.

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?

Good day,

It would appear that there was an update in the past 24hrs because my tabs appear different (rounder). However, now my bookmarks drop-down menu is all different and messed-up, and I can't delete the things added. Please see the screenshot enclosed...

I now have "Manage Bookmarks" at the top - which is fine. I have "Other Bookmarks" - which I thought I killed a LONG time ago. I have an ADDITIONAL "Manage Bookmarks" at the bottom - which seems redundant, and excessive.

I've done my homework, tried tinkering with old solutions. I cannot delete, move, rename, hide or change any of these. I would ideally like to remove everything except the 1st "Manage Bookmarks" at the top. That seems reasonable.

Thanks for your time and help! William (FF89)

Hello,

I've just recently been experiencing this problem.

I would play a Youtube video, but after a few minutes, it would just stop, no error message. It just stops.

I then reload the page, but then it plays with no audio. I would have to close Firefox and restart the video, just to have it stop again after a few minutes.

I have the latest version of Firefox installed. I've tried refreshing the Firefox setup, uninstalling and reinstalling, reinstalling the video drivers, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Video plays just fine with Chrome or Edge.
