Hello Everyone,

I have a Firefox account and I used to have all my passwords saved in Lockwise app (on my Huawei mobile) and in Lockwise section on my laptop (Linux) and all these passwords were synced across all my devices. I changed my mobile to IPhone and I didn't install Lockwise but I was still able to get to my logins via my laptop. And I was very cautious that I kept syncing every now and then.

The problem is that I formatted my laptop recently to windows 11, when I installed Firefox on my laptop again I was expecting to be able to retrieve all my passwords (around 200 entries) since everything was synced, but to my surprise everything was lost except for 16 entries.

Is there any way to backup my old list of passwords?

Please note that I still have my old phone (Huawei) with the old passwords list and the auto sync turned off. Is there any way to backup these passwords from Huawei to Iphone and to my Laptop?

I just synced two new devices (Android phone and tablet) using the scanned QR code because I got the error message that the password I was trying to use was incorrect. I don't understand what has happened, as I am "signed in" on desktop, laptop and those two devices with that password, as far as I know.

I was trying to set up the Recovery Key, but that also tells me that the current password is incorrect. I do not want to lose all of my saved passwords, history, etc., which is what it sounds like will happen if I try to reset my password.

Hi, When I run Firefox and use YoutubeTV I get slowness from internet. When I run YoutubeTV on Edge no problems. I have tried running it on Firefox in safe mode and with Bitdefender disabled still have issue. Please see attached screen shots. The delays of up to 3 seconds cause browser slowness when I try to browse to get details of something I am watching like on IMBD etc. I have been a long time user of Firefox and really don't like having to use Edge as my YoutubeTV browser.

Okay so I am trying to use facebook messenger's "audio clip" function, but it says it does not have permissions to do so. I verified that my microphone(on my computers end) is enabled and able to be accessed, but when I go to firefox settings there is no option to allow or block facebook from having access. The Tab is just empty entirely with no option to "add a website" or remove one. I attached a screenshot of the error Im getting and the settings page. I reviewed the page "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions" and it shows that the website should be listed and I should be able to choose "allow or block" but the website is clearly not listed. Additionally that page references a button that does not seem to exist in my browser which was referenced as "the permissions icon". That icon is not anywhere on my browser or in the settings.

I attached 3 images that hopefully breakdown what I am trying to describe as its difficult to explain without directly referencing the images.

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?

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I was downloading a 3 GB file from Mega. Unfortunately this Mega file hosting web site downloads the file into a temporary location through the browser instead of downloading it like a normal download.

Anyways, while I was downloading, at 54% the download got interrupted saying transfer quota exceeded and I need to wait 4 hours to continue download again. and my girlfriend didn't know this so she thought my download already completed and deleted the file :( After 4 hours of waiting I was unable to continue the download since the file is no longer avaliable anymore :/

Now my question is, where this 1.5 GB file gone? I have already checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\default\https+++mega.co.nz but it's not there, the folder size is 102 KB. I checked %AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\myprofile\storage\temporary too but that folder is completely empty. Also checked AppData\Local\Temp as well but it's not there either. The size of my Temp folder is just 10 MB.

While I was searching this, I saw some people saying (if I understood correct) the temporary download location of Mega isn't in hard drive, but in the RAM instead. I want to ask can anyone confirm is this actually true? and if so what happens to that space in RAM when download interrupts like this? Does it delete it from RAM automatically when I close Firefox?

Can anyone with knowledge in this regard please help me with this problem :( I am on SSD and already have a very few space left and I don't want to clutter my SSD with 1.5 GB unusuable file :(( Neither want 1.5 GB space got occupied in my RAM :((

Thank you so very much in advance.

Hi, I have set my default application for .pdf to be Microsoft Edge. So for example, when I open a .pdf in the file explorer it opens up in the Edge browser. When I open a .pdf in the download menu in Firefox the file does open in a pdf-explorer version of Edge. That is Edge will kinda open a new application just to show the .pdf, with no options for tabs or in general work as a web browser, it will only be a .pdf viewer. I would prefer for Firefox to open the .pdf in the normal Edge browser. Is there any way I can fix that?
