I have Firefox set to "Show my windows and tabs from last time" on startup. Since upgrading to Firefox 41, I've noticed that it doesn't always remember where I've scrolled to in all of the tabs, which it did perfectly before. Typically not every single tab is affected, but usually a decent portion are. Firefox 41.0.1 did not fix the issue.

Hi. I want to use Accessibility technology for create app on C++ and i have some issues with Firefox browser. I use at-spi2 library and i can not see Accessible interface of Firefox. Does Mozilla Firefox support Accessibility technology on Ubuntu?

I have noticed after I configured proxy (http or https), ALL DNS queries go through the proxy. That supposed to be only if I choose "Remote DNS" in the network settings.
But I do not mark it. So DNS queries should go to local servers.
Can someone check this for me and clarify this behavior.

As Mozilla turned of the old sync severs last months I'm now forced to move to the new Sync protocol. As very security-aware guy here are a few questions following the description of what I've understand so far:
New Sync protocol vs. Old SRP-Sync
While the new protocol still employs an end-to-end encryption scheme, it is significantly more exploitable than the old scheme.
Main reason for this:The old sync protocol used a purely generated and hence safe key to encrypt & decrypt any data. This key was only stored on your device, not bound to your account/master password and only left your device (e2e encrypted) during the pairing process.
In the new process this key is directly derived from your password. Hence anybody who is able to learn your password will also be able to retrieve and decrypt all your stored account passwords immediately..
The weak spot
This code reading and transforming your "the-one-and-only-key-to-rule-all-your-passwords"-password is embedded in your browser (i.e. go to the about:account page). This gives you some sort of security because this code should share the same trust level as before.
But this code reading your one-and-only-password is also served by other computers every time when you enter the very same password i.e. at https://accounts.firefox.com/ to sign in online into your Firefox account. So as a user you're prompted to enter your one-and-only password not only into your browser but also in web forms, which could be compromised at any time.
As a user you have little to no means to test if the form asking for your one-and-only password is sane and can be trusted. It could be compromised i.e. by a man-in-the-middle attack from the N*A or just be just simple phishing copy hosted by an malicious attacker on li.e. at https://accounts.firefox.io/
- Is it possible to use all Firefox account features while only entering my one-and-only password into dialogs generated & created by my own computer?
- The german version of https://accounts.firefox.com/legal/privacy states "Wenn Sie sich für ein Konto registrieren, erhalten wir Ihre E-Mail-Adresse und Ihr Passwort." saying Firefox will get my email & password in plain text. This would render the whole security design worthless?!
- The new design introduces a new security level of "class-B data". Data stored in the server under this class can by design directly decrypted by Mozilla. What data is stored as "class-B data"?

For last months, and following a firefox security update, I have this problem on ubuntu, on both my work and personal computer. My personal computer has an intel i7 proc, 8 gigabytes memory. The page interface kind of freezes in many situations, and for last months I need to grab the firefox window and move it in order to see the page correctly. In which situations? - when I change a tab (occurs approximately once every 3 tab changes, and it can occur on pages as basic as google) - when I type a mail on some plateforms (ex : Outlook) : there might be a shift between what I'm typing and what I see, I might also not see what I'm typing, until I move the window. - when I scroll, then select some text, the selected text might be shifted from where I was seeing it before (by half a line for example). This just happened now, but I can't print screen as firefox refreshes the view just before the picture is taken :D It is very frustrating, and didn't go with time or with the following updates. "refreshing" firefox as offered on your website host page, or removing the addons didn't solve the problem.

I am now using Mageia Linux. I was using Kubuntu, but after an update it was impossible to start my PC ... As I preferred Mageia (...), I then decided to install Mageia in new partitions on another disc. And I copied my Firefox profile from Kubuntu to Mageia: everything is OK except that there is no master password and I can't define it, no password seems to be recorded, I am not prompted for recording the password I just typed. Is there a solution to my problem ? Must I loose all recorded passwords by resetting the master password ?
J'utilise aujourd'hui Mageia Linux. J'avais Kubuntu, une mise à jour m'a fait aboutir à une impossibilité de démarrer mon PC. J'en ai profité pour installer Mageia (moins de problèmes qu'avec Kubuntu .....) dans la partition / de Kubuntu en conservant ma partition /home --> impossibilité de démarrer Mageia ! J'ai alors réinstallé Mageia dans 3 nouvelles partitions --> OK Mon problème d'aujourd'hui: j'ai remplacé le dossier .mozilla où se trouvait mon profil Firefox vierge de Mageia par le dossier .mozilla où se trouve mon profil Firefox de Kubuntu: tout est OK (marque-pages dont barre personnelle, extensions, iMacros, ...) sauf que je ne retrouve pas mes identifiants + mots de passe et qu'il m'est impossible de cocher et de mémoriser un mot de passe principal, j'obtiens le message "Impossible de changer le mot de passe principal". Comment est-il possible de faire en sorte de pouvoir redéfinir un mot de passe principal en conservant tout le profil ? Si j'ai la solution à ce problème, soit je retrouve mes identifiants + mot de passe, soit je les réenregistre au fur et à mesure de mes besoins et je suis sauvé !!!.
