Hi !

Firefox asked me again to create a new profile. Third or forth time within a month or two. Nothing serious, I have to admit, takes a few minutes to recover bookmarks, reset duckduckgo as default search engine, etc., but why is it happening? Version 87.0, Windows 10, 64 bit.

And while I'm here... I use to download a lot of webpages, for information purposes, it's easier than to bookmark them all. Doesn't work correctly for a while now, they are not saved as webpages, but as something resembling html-format (or however to describe it)... Still working with Edge and Opera, so it must be a Firefox issue. And after each update Firefox was reset to French language automatically one or two days later, this also does not happen any more. I'm neither English nor French native speaker, so again, not a real problem, but why is it happening? or rather not happening any more?

Just curious... Thanks in advance for any hint Best regards Michael

Can you give me back my "Stuff" as it's all gone now after a change in my gmail because it wanted 3 days to confirm my request for a new password? I made a new account. After a support request to Moto G (when I could no longer download my moto g pictures), my personal files (i.e. recipes, research on US Covid 19 vaccines, and notes on anything from a Spanish learning program to family info, etc) was taken. Their tech support in the US, Ryan, helped me and it vanished and he says he can't reset it. Even though he had access through my cell and laptop.

It's a great hack. Can you help me? Cheri

"They" did leave me my creation "Family slide show" but not the historic one made for the elders.

Firefox 87.0 / MacOS, in safe mode, with and without enhanced protection. Mostly after clearing cache. Server is Apache, running WordPress.

Other browsers (Chrome, Opera, IE) have no problems.

Using HTTPS.

Page itself (HTML) loads correctly. The referenced (linked) files do not load, even though they are on the same server.

When I look at the Network Analysis tab, I see that the CSS and JSS files have no return codes, and show 0 Bytes transferred. It does not show the data coming from the cache. A detailed look at the request looks normal, the answer is not available. When I resend the request I get an answer, no problem.

No messages in the console.

It seems to have something to do with the server, when I deactivate certain WP plugins, the problem disappears. Perhaps the problem is worse when the server is slow... cannot prove this.

I am looking for what I can do on the Apache side to fix the problem.

Thanks in advance, Ron

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Hi Firefox guys, I've recently created a windows domain (2019 servers only, clients and dc) and deployed firefox 87 On all computers.. Now I need to make sure firefox uses the best practice ciphers only.

    • Is there a way of customizing such security setting, across the network? maybe using GPO**?

I have noticed a recently developing event in Firefox. When scrolling through some pages such as LinkedIn or Facebook, my screen will suddenly go completely white. It seems to freeze for a second or two, then comes back. This has only been happening for about the past two or three weeks, so since about 1 April 2021 for time reference. My About Firefox shows I am running 87.0 (64-bit) and it is up to date. I completely uninstalled - including the deletion of the Mozilla folders per info on the web - then reinstalled. This did not correct the issue. I also run Chrome and do not experience this issue when using it.

Hi,

I was trying to use firefox primary password without knowing what it does :(. Well by the time i set the primary password in firefox i realise that it replaced all the saved login passwords of over 600 URLS with primary password.

I checked few articles where they have spoken about replacing logins-backup.json and key4.db file. In my case though i think this will not help because i had my syncing on, when i did primary password setting change. is there any method with which i can restore my previous passwords by creating new profile may be.

Just desperately need way with which i can restore the passwords else this will be really difficult for my work

Thanks Prasad
