I'm trying to move to Firefox from Microsoft Edge on Linux. When I go to import data from another browser Edge is not an option. I have a CSV file that I exported from Edge. How can I import this CSV file? I found something on reddit that said to change security.allow_eval_in_parent_process to true, but that no longer works. How can I get my passwords imported without having to install another browser and import to that and then import to firefox?

When I copy paste stuff, and who knows when, I see a bunch of word suggestions at the top of the right click context menu, with an option to enter them into a dictionary, whatever and wherever that is. I see nothing at all in the settings corresponding to this, and just want to completely disable that BS: It's just garbage in the way of me doing my tasks. How do I disable this, and/or the entire spell checker and dictionary, etc. if necessary? I know how to spell. Don't need it. Thanks.

Hello,

I am having problems with some sites and the error seems to indicate that it is related to cookies.

In Google Drive, when I am trying to download any file, it is getting stuck in some kind of loop and at the end, it is showing this:

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to drive.google.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Apart from this, when I am trying to log into my Riot account in Valorant's website, it is ending up showing this:

Expected redirect cookie to exist

___

I have tried following:

  • Using Standard mode for tracking protection
  • Disabling tracking protection for these sites
  • Deleting Cookies & Cache
  • Reinstalling Firefox :(

It didn't help. Also, it started after I reinstalled Windows 11. I have yet to setup it, so I have not made any changes.

Also, everything is working fine in other browsers.

Is there a way to permanently disable red underlining from Firefox spell check? This has only started occurring since an update to Firefox 110 (now on 112), but there seems to be no way to make it go away. I've unchecked the spelling box in preferences, and killed off things in about:config:

extensions.spellcheck.inline.max-misspellings 0 layout.spellcheckDefault 0 services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault false services.sync.prefs.sync.spellchecker.dictionary false

I'm using Mac Monterey, and have the global spell check turned off for that. This seems to be a problem specific to Firefox, as it doesn't happen in Chrome (spellcheck off) or Safari. I'd like to remove this entirely, since it's distracting to have it second guessing me whenever I'm typing. The main reason I use Firefox is that it gives me the ability to control many things, particularly in combination with UBlock, but I'm unable to make any progress in removing this persistent work disruption.

Google's websites works badly with Hardware Acceleration On (Google, Youtube, Gmail, Google Maps, ...)

Hi everyone, I am currently using Firefox "112.0.1 (64-bit)" on Windows 10 "10.0.19045 Build 19045]"

I have problems using almost all Google websites: most of the times they do not load at first attempt, and when they do they do not works properly. As example: Youtube does not load (or the cached version says that there is no internet connection), then after a few attempts it loads but all thumbnails on the home are gray.

On another browser (Edge) all websites works normally.

Using private window has the same problem, I have no extension and no plugin other than OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. I tried emptying cache and also reinstalling Firefox.

The only fix I found on the web is to disable hardware acceleration from settings. If I disable it and restart the browser, then all websites works normally. Actually I can't see this as fix but as a workaround, since I am using a notebook and I'd like to use my GPU for video decoding and save energy.

Maybe I am missing something? Is there something I can do? Thanks.

I've got this weird behavior happening where if my window is closed from maximize, which saves the browser's size, and I open it, it will first open in maximize then size down to the same size.

In other words, Firefox will always open the window to a specific size regardless of what it was when I closed it. This is extremely annoying.

Is this part of resisting fingerprinting? This is some unusual behavior that I haven't seen Firefox do before ever.

I can provide a little video if my explanation wasn't clear.
