So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

My dad did somethink with Avast antivirus(at least he said so) and after that we have no search engine available. If you try to type something in a serch bar you can only open direct links. Default search engine button in the settings does not respond and even following instructions on the site I can't add new search engines. Tried Google, YouTube and DuckDuckGo but to no avail. There is just no option to add new search engine.

P.S. Don't know how to reach russian-speaking support, so screenshots are in russian with some explanations on top.

So, how to say this and not to fail into rage.... Mozilla account failed to save my account information. All log ins, all bookmarks and saved pages, everything is lost. I needed to reinstall the OS on my laptop and after reinstalling Mozilla and logging in to my Mozilla account I realized that nothing from my data has been saved. How is it possible that the only thing I used the Mozilla account for failed to work when I needed it the most? Is it possible to access the data and how?

Refreshed firefox because youtube loaded in at 280%. Someone said it might be corrupt. I Refreshed and all my passwords are gone and everything else. There is no folder on my desktop with the old info in it. Where is it. There is one old folder from 2018 I never used because at the time I didn't understand what to do. But now I can't get into my firefox account and don't want to rest my password yet because it says everything will be wiped out. This is ridiculous and too complicated. Had I knowed I wouldn't have done it. I have been able to get some things back like favorite sites, but gosh, all my passwords, nuts.

Since few Firefox versions I am constantly asked if I want to allow Firefox to open link in external program. For example if you click install on steam page it asks you if you want to launch steam. However in private tabs it asks constantly even if I click "remember". Is there any setting in about:config that would allow me to always allow every site to open links? I do not care about security, I just want usability. Example notification: https://i.postimg.cc/652gmyXT/example.png

When I receive an email, I would like a 'Save As' option, but this seems to only be availabe with Internet Explorer. I would like to save my attachments from a received email where I would like them to go, rather than being forced to save to 'Downloads' and then then relocate the file to where I want it!

Hello

I'm trying to insert a flagcounter from flagcounter.com in the sourcecode of my discogs-profile site. As I am no developer i'm not sure why the flagcounter doesn't stay on the site (after inserting the code, first it gets displayed). When I quit the page and reload it, it's gone

In the (german) konsole there are several error messages about cookie settings, but I don't know what to change there exactly.

Or can I add an attribute "crossorigin" to the souce code? And how?

Could you please help? Surely will make a small donation to mozilla:-)

Best regards, Stefan
