Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

Hello,

I recently installed the Multi-Account Containers extension but noticed that it also added some unwanted right click context menu items to assets for websites that I have put into containers. For example google.com and youtube.com are both put inside a "google" container. Now I have used the folowing code: "menu[label="Open Link in New Google Tab"] {display:none!important;} " in the userChrome.css file to remove the context menu item: "Open Link in New Google Tab" but it's only taking effect on the google.com website and not youtube.com.

Anyone know the reason why?

Thanks in advace.

Today (oct30) Netflix has stopped working on FF. I'm running v.82.0.2 which just updated maybe yesterday or the day before. It was working yesterday. I'm getting an error "This title is not available to watch instantly - Error code F7121-1331" and won't load any title. I can watch on MS Edge alright. I've tried FF in Safe Mode with no improvement. Any ideas? Thanks.

I'd like to start by saying that this has happened after several previous updates and i have now turned off automatic updates to help thwart this issue. Firefox updated yesterday and my add-ons that previously appeared in the menu bar on the top right were gone, as were the add-ons themselves as far as i can tell. I installed the add-ons along with a few new ones, but they don't appear in the menu bar. I went to manage add-ons, all but one are showing that they do not have short cuts, and the one that does, i don't seem to have an option to add the short cut to the menu bar.

If they have to be hidden, that will be very inconvenient, but more importantly, i'm not sure how to even use them as i essentially have no interface with the short cuts at this point. Does anyone know how i can fix this?

Do i need to revert back to an older version of Firefox? I'm on a mac using 10.14.6 Mojave.

Thanks,

Steve

If I open a website containing grafics which should be embedded from "datawrapper.dwcdn.net" the space where it should be displayed remains blank. An example are is the site spiegel.de, at the page, where Corona numbers are visualized. I see for a second, that "datawrapper.dwcdn.net" is called, but nothing gets displayed. I have the firefox 82.0.1 64bit on a Windows 10 Home system. No blocking add-on is installed.

I am having a problem where Firefox functions normally, saves session history, saves log in information, etc, until something like a power outage happens where the computer is rebooted. The computer is a Mac desktop. I have gone into system preferences multiple times and selected the option to have Firefox restore session history, and when I simply close the Firefox browser, it does indeed save session history and all other data upon re-opening. However, when the computer is re-booted, Firefox then acts as though it has never been opened before, opening a totally virgin version of the browser. Why would it be wiped every time the computer is rebooted? This is a business computer and we need the log-ins to be saved for multiple different sites. Having to re-log-in and save info for each site we use after every time the computer is restarted is driving me mad.

Running Win10 last update KB4577671 First no images on multi image pages, like Zappos. (now working) Image would show up if image link was clicked. Seemed to be related to HTTPS sites. Troubleshot entire Firefox app 3x.. downloaded, installed latest firefox. no luck, got much worse...now can't get into long standing gmail accounts, ARABIC instructions on middle of firefox page, English US as selected on top, updates of gmail account and others don't stick.

the entire download is non functional. will stop using firefox for a while. until these programing issues are fixed. will check back periodically. Prefer firefox over any of the other venders. Supreme dislike for Apple, MSN,....Chrome seems to work.

A few days ago Firefox automatically updated and destroyed all my logins and passwords and a huge amount beside. Yes, there was blurb about how to find them which involved a file which did not exist on my system and the whole was not comprehensible.

I did ask for help but got nothing

Somehow, the next day my system had gone back to the earlier setup. Now Firefox wants me to update AGAIN!

Given my experience how can I trust Firefox not to destroy my data?
