I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

I subscribe to a number of separate "Things" hosted by a single company (silly example) http://stuffstuff.co.uk. My user name for each of the separate things is "mr-silly@silly.co.uk" and the only thing that differentiates them is that each "Thing" requires a different password.

Thing 1 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 1sillything Thing 2 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 2anothersillything Thing 3 Username: mr-silly@silly.co.uk Password: 3moresillything

and so on...

Unfortunately this Lockwise thing will not permit this to happen, presenting the following stupid message.

"An entry for http://stuffstuff.co.uk with that username already exists. Go to existing entry?"

How do I get around this Lockwise silliness?

The email address is required as the user name by the company.

Don't suggest having a different email address for each user name, that is not possible.

While the question maybe posed in a silly manner  :-) I am quite serious about the problem. Thanks Ax

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

For sport, I use Strava, Garmin Connect, Komoot, Runkeeper that all use embedded maps. They use either openstreetmap or google. On the main google maps, I can pan the map (click the map, hold it and then move the view), on the embedded maps within these website, I cant navigate by clicking and dragging. (It is the same on the main openstreetmap site (although this is how it is supposed to work, when i try the same in the chrome browser it does work).

When I try it in chrome, the panning works for these site. There must be some mouse setting that I am missing.

I already tried restarting firefox with all addons off and turning off hardware acceleration.

cheers, Gerard

Dear Mozilla support,

I just switched to firefox and Im having an issue with youtube. When i go to a channels videos and scroll down the page and open a video, when i come back to the previous tab the page resets up to the top. I dont know if this is a scroll anchoring issue or a memory limit issue, Im not sure. Here is how i can replicate the issue every time:

1. go to youtube.com 2. select a channel. 3. go to videos on the channel. 4.sort videos by date (oldest). 5. scroll down a lot and open a random video in a new tab. 6. watch video in full screen for 1 minute. 7. stop video and go back to the first tab. 8. first tab has now reset to the top.

I'm on firefox version 82.0 (64-bit) and i only have ublock origin extension installed. I do not experience this issue with chrome. Please advice.

Thank you.

I use Firefox sync to share logins and passwords between my home and work computer. I set this up a few years ago. Now I want to sync another computer, but I don't remember the sync password. I believe it's written in a code book in my office, which has been closed due to Covid 19 since March. How can I change my sync password while preserving my login and password info? Many of my passwords were generated by Firefox and not something I would ever remember.

I can see my current logins and passwords on a sync enabled computer, so in theory I can copy and re-enter them all. But there are hundreds, and that would many hours. If I was willing to do this, is there a way that I can enter the logins and passwords into a table in Firefox without having to visit every website, log in, and re-save the login info? At this point my only two options seem to be to not use my sinced profile on that computer, or to spend all day manually setting everything up again. Thanks.

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?
