For the second time in the past couple of weeks I have attempted to log into a website, found the password missing, then found all my passwords missing. I restored 3 different Mozilla folders from backup: User AppData>Roaming, AppData>Local, and ProgramData with no success.

I managed to recover my passwords by logging out of my FF, logging back in, and syncing with Lockwise on my Android phone; however losing passwords is a PIA. Why would this be happening and where are the passwords stored so I can recover from backup if necessary?

I receive the message "A web page is slowing down your browser". I have read the other Firefox users posts with the same problem but none of the solutions solve the problem. I don't have this problem with Google's Chrome nor with Microsoft's browser. The main website this problem presents itself on is my preferred news site, FoxNews.com.

Since I would prefer to continue using Firefox please find the problem and FIX your Firefox browser! Thank you.

I had **two (2)** Firefox browsers. They both worked fine.

Each one had links to web pages that worked fine.

There was an automatic start last night - and only one browser returned. The browser had different bookmarks. (**All** of those bookmarks aren't useful.)

How do I get both Firefox browsers back after there is an automatic start?

I decided to use Firefox Developer Edition on my Linux machine (Fedora 32) as I migrate from Windows for Web Development, but I have hit a wall with it with Gnome Extensions. I get the following error when I attempt to modify or even view extensions.gnome.org content:

Although GNOME Shell integration extension is running, native host connector is not detected. Refer documentation for instructions about installing connector.

The only resolve I found for this is Chrome-based so I do not feel that is the issue I am having. The browser works fine other than this, at least from what I can tell. Is there a way to use the extensions? Should this issue be a precursor to things on Fedora that should keep me on Windows for the browser? Please advise, I want to make the full move to Linux soon.

Relatively minor problem, but: lately, if I enter text too quickly after opening a new tab, the text that I entered into the search bar gets deleted. Maybe half a second or so after opening the tab, this stops and the text enters normally. But, this is frustrating for navigating or searching from new tabs.

Any way to fix this? I am using Firefox 80.0.1 on a Mac. I am also using the Tabliss extension, if that matters.

hey there folks :) so I got the email about your new extension RegretsReporter...I think it's a phenomenal project so I have of course intalled the extension on chrome. I haven't found the recommendation on Youtube problematic it's more about the ads that they recommend for me (not the ones that I have to view in order to see a video). Rather the one's they display just below the video when viewing can the RegretsReporter also deal with those?

For some reason, YouTube is not being very responsive to my account. I've logged in and out of my Gmail account to view YouTube on Firefox and there are several problems that are troubling me.

1. It doesn't recognize me as a logged in user but as a guest. Even when I'm logged in, YouTube still sees me as a guest. For example when I click on the Bell icon on the top right of the site I can't view my notifications at all from those who've I've subscribed.

2. There is no human way to access account settings as a "logged" in user. I tried modifying the settings by clicking on the gear icon on the top right. The options for settings only appear "normal" for a logged user for a split second till it gets overwritten in appearance by a prompt for people who are guests on YouTube.

I still have access to subscriptions only by opening another tab and through that subscription tab I can still view things normally such as my playlists and history for example. But those two major problems persist.

I've logged into YouTube on Brave and no problems I mentioned happened.

EDIT: Question retracted. The answer was to "turn it off and back on again" (i.e. close and restart firefox). Site works fine now with all addons and tracking protections enabled.

messages.google.com isn't working for me anymore. This is with Firefox 80.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. All I get is a blank page. The network monitor indicates a bunch of things are "Blocked", but I don't see where it explains why they were blocked. I've disabled all addons, set tracking protections to standard, and disabled Enhanced Tracking Protection for messages.google.com.

Am I missing something?

After removing and downloading Firefox again recently, I have begun to run into characters not displaying on websites. Nearly every site is subject to this issue, where characters display as little boxes with numbers inside them. After looking around, I have verified that I am allowing sites to specify their own font, and that I don't have any fonts blocked under about:config. I am running Firefox 80.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS.

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop
