It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

I happen to be one who simply does not wish to have any program remember or store passwords of any kind, thank you. An irritating problem I have with Firefox Password Manager is that whenever I log on to any site and the Password Manage box pops up and offers to save my password...once I select "Never Save" I expect that choice to be honored and would appreciate it if it were. But it simply isn't. I must continue to select "Never Save" each and every time I log onto any and all websites. What does "Never" mean in this context if the Password Manager continues to circulate the same query every single time? Is there any way I can simply disable Password Manager and thus avoid this irritation...which is getting very tedious and old. Please?

My browsing behaviour involves opening a handful of pages many times a day. So, I start to type the address & the autofill feature completes the url, then I press enter. But, there is a slight inconvenience in FF's autofill feature. In Firefox, it doesn't show the full url, only the homepage of that domain and not any additional paths. In Chrome, it shows the full url along with paths. See the images for example.. 10.254.254.4/0/up is my ISP's login page, so I open it many times. But, I have never opened the 10.254.254.4 ; there is nothing there. Yet, typing '10' shows '10.254.254.4' as first result in FF & '10.254.254.4/0/up' in Chrome.

How do I customize Firefox that it shows the full address instead of only the homepage?

Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

Thanks

Hi everyone. When I opened Mozilla, I found out that all my bookmarks disappeared. Yesterday they were here, but now not anymore...how is it possible? I followed all the info to recover my bookmarks but I couldn't. It's like everything disappeared, I've never done a backup of my bookmarks or anything else so I don't know if I lost them for ever. Attached there's a screenshot of what appears. Please help me because I had over 300 bookmarks, and now I can't find one!

I am trying to establish that a Web site uses Extended Validation as described in [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/.../how-do-i-tell-if-my-connection-is-secure]. It says:

"For sites using EV certificates, the legal company or organization name and location of the website owner displays when you click the gray padlock."

Here is a site that I am highly confident uses extended validation. You can read this for more details on why this matters a great deal read this for more details on why this matters a great deal. When I click on the gray padlock, I get a simple pop-up that doesn't display the legal company/org name or location of the web site! But it does show a gray padlock, green text "Connection Secure", and a clickable right-arrow. I then click on "more information", then "View Certificate" to finally get org details...but I still have no idea if this is an EV certificate! The only clue may be the detail "Extended Key Usages" "Purposes: Server Authentication, Client Authentication". I want to conclude that this means this is an EV certificate, but I am unable to find any documentation from Firefox/Mozilla that proves that this is an EV certificate. I suppose I could phone the organization and manually verify their details vs. what it says on the certificate, but this is a lot of work! Worse, for large organizations that go by different names and addresses, it could be a legit connection to the org's Web server, but what they tell me on the phone still might not match what the certificate says.

Can anybody shed light on this? How can I easily verify that this is an EV certificate?

I am currently running Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Win 7.

Previously, Firefox made this easy by displaying a green padlock symbol. Some Firefox forks still do, such as the *current* version of Tor Browser which is 9.0.10 (based on Mozilla Firefox 68.8.0esr) (32-bit).

Why did Firefox stop displaying the green padlock?

Used to be able to move a tab into a different window by dragging it there. No longer works (Win 7, FF75 and now 76) despite your help article that says to do just this--so how can I do this? I'm trying to consolidate a bunch of tabs currently in their own windows, into just one window which will hold all the tabs on a related subject.

I use Firefox to download a file from Internet by means of the command Shell of VBA, i.e :

Shell ("C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" & " -url https://FileName.exe")

and curiously sometimes the FileName is downloaded without problems and the next time I try to download it, it appears a warning indicating Firefox has closed unexpectedly. And of course, the next time I try to download the file, it is dowloaded again without problems and the story is repeated continuously.

Hello,

I am currently using Kaspersky Internet Security 2019 on both computers, and on mine it updated to the 2020 version, and I went to the Kaspersky forum and asked how do I re-install the 2019 version and I was given the help, however, now I have lost the Kaspersky Protection 2019 Add-On on Firefox, and when I look to see about installing the Kaspersky, it isn't listed on Firefox anymore.

Where can I find the 2019 Add-On?

Thank you,

Just recently when I am on yahoo mail, I randomly get logged off. When I try to log back in, I have to change my password to succeed. I am running out of ideas for password as I have changed it dozens of times. This did not occur immediately after an update. Just out of curiosity, I did system restore to undo the last ff update, but still happened either way. I went thru deleting all cookies, stored passwords and cleared browser history. None of this helped. Virus scans showed negative. I have called att/yahoo tech support and they could not fix this. I have opened my mail in IE and do not have this problem using that browser. But come, I hate IE. So I have windows 7 professional. Not sure of all the pertinent system info needed but appreciate any suggestions.

Links from Gmail open a tab in Gmail (https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/.), rather than the relevant website page. If I click this tab, then my Gmail account opens (duplicates) in the tab. On repeating the click (and doing so deliberately) on the hyperlink in the Gmail body, a tab does open with the relevant website page. This occurs haphazardly.
