2 days ago i clicked a firefox add on to speed up my computer. It has removed my bookmarks and toolbar access for my emails. So I want to remove this add on. Ive found a option called firefox default setting but will this again remove my bookmarks etc. I just want to go back to where my computer was before this add on- which didnt even speed up my system - so I can restore my data.

I just discovered a gigantic security flaw. If I go back in my history, I can pull up a website such as Experian credit boost. When I pull it up, The logon screen appears and I can see the number of digits that my password contains. NOW I thought that was very bad, however, I can click on the eyeball and the password is fully revealed. what is this about?? I mean anyone with access to this history link can get my password??? As a lifelong insurance man, I am very paranoid about security but broke down and started using Lockwise. Does that have anything to do with it? Need help immediatly.

I'm unable to login to Outlook through Firefox on my desktop - Chrome works fine, and I'm not having issues when logging in to Outlook on my laptop using Firefox. After entering my username and password, I see a white page with "Working..." flickering on the tab, then a "X-Redir-Error" pops up. I have tried updating and restarting Firefox, clearing cookies, and using a private window - I was walked through troubleshooting steps by IT at my school as well, but it seems very clear that the issue is with the Firefox browser, and not my Outlook account. Any other suggestions to fix? Thank you!

10/20/20

I clicked on the update button last night - running 81.0, and the update was for 81.0.2. When I went to open the browser all that I got was a line at the top - FF would not open. I backed up the profile, and did a clean install. When I finally got the backed up profile installed, it opened properly once and everything was there. When I opened it again, no book marks, and none of the buttons worked. FF didn't close properly, and I had to use Task Manager to shut down.

I ended up downloading the beta version, and it's worked just fine. The original profile works, so all bookmarks are there.

I see that FF released 82.0 this morning. Is it safe to try to install it, or is the beta version that I installed last night really 82, just hours before it was officially released?

I managed to explode my computer this weekend and I lost, among other things, my bookmarks in Firefox. They can't be recovered from windows.old as Windows somehow decided to replace the old windows.old by a new one with nothing useful in it.

I still have all my bookmarks in my account, though, which I know from looking at my Android phone. Now, I'm just scared that if I sync, they will get deleted from my phone instead of synced back to my computer. I could not find any specific answer to this; can someone help me? Do I have anything to do to make sure it goes the right way?

Thanks!

For some strange reason Firefox is not logging me into my favorite websites automatically any more. I have to manually log in every time. The websites' login pages are automatically filled when I move the cursor to the Username and Password fields, but I still have to click Log In. As soon as I log out and log in I am asked to "Sign In" again. I tried manually adding a website to the "Saved Logins" but that did not help. Using Windows 10 64bit.

Firefox did an update today, and restarting it, all my installed addons are gone. On top of that, my personal theme is no longer there.

Saved passwords, on the other hand, do not seem to be affected.

Any advice on how to restore the addons, in particular? My current version Firefox 76.0 on Fedora. Any help is appreciated!

Yesterday I posted a query on this topic trying to find out how I can get my Android firefox app to scan QR codes to allow me to add other devices to my existing account. Although I haven't had a reply, I managed to find out how to perform the scanning operation from within the Firefox for Android app (V81.1.4). I set up all the permissions for the app in Settings and thought I was on my way to achieving the result when I found the 'Scan' symbol just above the search bar and tapped that. The QR scanner duly opened and scanned the code and I 'Allowed' the app to open the link. The page that opened announced: 'Pair using an app' and below it asked: 'Did you use the sustem camera? You must pair from within a Firefox app.' I repeated the exercise several times but got the same result. I do not understand why this is happening and why I cannot sync across my devices any more. It seemed to work fine without much intervention from me in the past, but since the recent upgrades the app is equally dysfunctional across all my devices. I sincerely hope that someone out there is able to set me straight.
