Firefox is hanging on to an ancient dead email address, which it uses automatically when replying in on line forms where I don't have the option of filling one in (form won't send because account is dead), or trying to get into dropbox, etc. (identifies me as not having access under the old email address because access was set up for my current email address).

 I have looked here but don't find the places to go as described at all:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts.

Where do I find Firefox's stored email address that it uses for functions as described above?

FYI, I use Thunderbird for email, but not Firefox. I have my proper email address identified as primary in Thunderbird, and the dead address and all emails completely deleted as far as I can find them. Am on Win 7; Firefox 105.0.1 at present, but this has been a problem for a long time. Thank you. Dave

Serif fonts help with readability, and are therefore preferable in the body of a book. The “serif” is the decorative stroke that finishes each end of a letter (think Times Roman). Serif fonts are easier on the reader’s eye than sans-serif fonts; the stroke leads the reader’s eye from one letter to the next.

FredMcD made it clear that closing FF, navigating to 'Windows: C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile>' and re-opening FF should reset the 'Cookies And Site Data' tab to 0/

  • Should the yellow 'Profiles' folder be deleted OR the file folder, with the series of letters and numbers that appear (when the 'Profiles' folder is clicked) be deleted?

The clarification is appreciated.

Is it possible to change the location of Reader View? I appreciate information on how to remove it (reader.parse-on-load.enabled to false in about:config) However I like the usefulness but I do not want it to clutter up the address bar. I relocate most of my buttons, some to the overflow and would like to relocate Reader View, also.

Hello. All of a sudden i have been getting prompts just before completing gmail sign is asking if i want to switch to html or default.I chose default,tried to sign in again,and got this legacy version of gmail with messages being listed in html format which is brutal.What caused this ? how do i get it back to the way its always been? Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

I have installed every update that you have provided, and allowed the install at my discretion. Question; why is it I have no problems at all in any way until I allowed these updated to install. I have never had so many times when the screen stall's, even had to restart the PC with the reset button. Your updates are getting worse and worse :( When I last installed Firefox, I had limited and or no problems with this program, and yet you claim every time you update that you are fixing bugs, glitches, and a whole load of other stuff, but I never had any of these thing's happen until you started updating :( Can you please stop messing with a program that works properly, but putting it back too a version that works without constant problems :(

Just wanted to say thank you for ruining my day, and my life all together with the new update (which installed itself without me asking) and now everything is gone and i have to memorize what tabs i was working with and open them one by one - moreover, I've disabled all the add-ons that block the ads so it's a very nice experience BESIDE firefox is still crashing. And on a side note, all my settings are gone and I'm trying to get it back to what it was before the update. Thank you.

Hello -

Is there a way to see all History (browsing and anything else you accessed via FF) since it was last cleared?

When I click on 'History -> Manage' I get a window called Library and can only see Today, Yesterday and Last 7 Days. Is that it? I am certainly no computer expert-- still using Win 7 which does everything I need. But I am going on my observations; and from the last 30 min reading people's issues wth accessing history, it seems that Firefox has gone backweards in this area. As there used to be a way to access 'All History'

Chrome has an excellent History setup - it retains all history since it was last cleared, and which I have often used to my great delight. Could go back many months.

Can FF only access the last 7 days of History?

Thanks

PS, I tried clicking on Share Data for this post but it says it cannot access it. Then I tried clicking on the link that it suggested but I went to it and not only lost all my typing (this is the second attempt) but I don't have a fault as that page may suggest. My FF, which is the lastest one, seems to be working normally, it's just the limited History I have an issue with. And the reason for this Post. Thanks

I am using Widows7 Home Premium with Yahoo Mail and Firefox, a combination that's worked for years.

When starting an email and when you put the first letter in the 'To' line I used to get a box suggesting all the names in my contact list beginning with the same letter. With a simple click on the name you want, it appears on the 'To' line. This is not now happening and it's a pain having to dig out email addresses from elsewhere.

I have not made any alterations anywhere on the computer, it just disappeared one day.

How can I get this feature to reappear?

Hi, upon booting the latest ESR update I'm encountering multiple error messages warning that:

"The procedure entry point _o_memset could not be located in the dynamic link library api-ms-win-crt-private-l1-1-0.dll."

What could cause that error, is it a known problem, and is a fix available ? I'm running the ESR under Windows 7 x64.
