duplicate of /questions/1292796 thread.

i did check all boxes during the switch from one firefox version to eos but no bookmarks or anything were synched over. Is this repairable? Either way - keeping this version or going back to the previous one?

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

I would like to make a bookmark file with all the tabs in all the open windows, organised by window. The final goal is to be able to open all Firefox windows with all their respective tabs in another browser, like Vivaldi; alternatively, to time stamp various such bookmark files, and open all the window with all their tabs I had open in Firefox, say, 8 months ago. Please have a look at the screenshot attached: it seems that the menu button Bookmarks → Bookmarks All Tabs makes bookmarks only of the tabs of the upper-most window. Thank you for any help.

I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?

So we made the big mistake when we originally decided to ban the comment section of the internet, which gives users the ability to comment and promote free and open dialogue. We removed it after claims it could be used, like Firefox, for posting hate speech (which does not exist according to the supreme court), however we see no banning of Mozilla's Firefox or Cisco's Webex web and video conferencing addon which can be used spread this non existent activity. Banning Dissenter is akin to banning the wheel because criminals might use it to escape from a crime scene, or banning socks because people wear them while saying hateful things. Censorship and control is the obvious agenda.

The censorship of dissenter by Mozilla is one of the greatest attacks against the internet and online freedom we have seen, one I will not stand by and let you get away with. Its time to bring dissenter back... the question is, what are you going to do about it?

Hot keys, key combos etc. I write email, mash small keys on laptop, email gone. Get huffy. Just no. Can you FOCUS the whatever so that all hot keys etc are DISABLED.

I would write something offensive in Russian right here but my Russian is very bad. Sorry. ( It will get better one day)

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

I use multiple tabs when running Firefox (usually 7). My computer system says the processing speed is 1.60 GHz w/3GB (2.75GB) that is 64 bit. I have Ghostery & Noscript as extensions, a Firefox theme & Shockwave 32/OpenH264/Widevine Content Decryption Module as add ons. I just need to know whether my computer processor will work with this version of Firefox or not. Thank you for keeping it simple & for any answers I may receive.

I checked the fields. Both have the Fill field indicated.

The saved login information is all there and correct. However the password field is not being filled.

Six month ago my bank went from a one page to a two page login. The help you gave me six months ago solved the problem. Now the bank has changed back again to a one page login. Two days ago the response you gave me I marked as Solved when I deleted the saved ID and password and Firefox loaded the new ID and Password. I thought that would fix the problem. That was premature. I should have tried logging in to my bank, because it still isn't loading the password. The password field is set to Fill Password.

P.S. And I don't need another responses from some sarcastic SOB who cant read or think clearly and who sends me a NO-Reply Email that I can't respond to.
