https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Hi, I'm a student and I am not tech savvy. Not so literate about codes and customization, but I can understand and follow instructions for those who can help me.

I've recently move to firefox from chrome few days ago. And I noticed that when I'm uploading some of our video lectures in google drive / google classroom, it is very slow. So I tried using my laptop's microsoft edge browser, and it is 2-3x faster there.

What could be wrong?

Clicking "Show more comments" on Facebook does nothing (I browse it without an account), also no comments are shown in Cracked.com, I haven't noticed if other sites don't show comments. I use Ubuntu 20.04 (when I first opened FF on this pc it had the gnome icon and I hadn't checked for this problem before importing my old profile with add-ons, now it doesn't show the icon for some reason), I tried safe mode, refresh firefox, creating new profile, uninstalling and deleting home/.mozilla folder, no luck. Before I got this pc I used my old laptop with windows 7 and I'm pretty sure I had the same problem with facebook comments that had started some time earlier.

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

I recently reloaded Windows 10 on my Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and reinstalled Firefox (V87.0, 64 bit). I've noticed now that web pages that have been opened will oftentimes not refresh after they have been open for a certain amount of time (TBD). As an example, if I edit an event in my Cozi Calandar page, the activity indicator will spin and spin and never comlete the change. I have to close the tab, open a new one, and load Cozi in that and then edit the event. Another indicator of this problem is that , when I open a new tab, the images associated with the Firefox Pocket recommended stories do not load (and I suspect the list of stories is not refreshed). If I close Firefox and restart it, that will sometimes resolve the problem, but not always. I have tried running Firefox in SafeMode, but that does not resolve the problem. I have also Refreshed my installation of Firefox.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am attempting to change my secondary email address with the intent to make my new email the primary email. I have removed the old secondary email, but when I try to add the email address that I want. I get an error message saying that the email already exists. I note that in the Firefox account dialog the secondary email address is blank.

I did sign up for Firefox VPN using the email address that I'd like to use and so that's a possible reason. I just don't know how to fix it. Note; I'm no longer planning to use Firefox VPN. I wonder if perhaps there's a way to cancel/delete that account.

'bold text'Problem with appearance of aplusnet email on my iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

For no apparent reason, everything in the Firefox window displaying this email application appears about one-fifth or less of normal size. (See attached screen shot.) Everything, meaning text fonts, graphics, etc. No other Firefox window or tab similarly affected. I tried restarting the application. And then restarting the computer, then Firefox, then the aplusnet email. No soap. Not responsive to changing the font size.

No idea how this happened, but it’s rendered the email unreadable on Firefox. I'm running Firefox Browser 87.0. Thanks very much for your help.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.
