I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

When I wan't to use add-ons in Firefox for Mac, they just don't work. I can install them but they do not open. I have tried re-installing Firefox, installing the Firefox Beta (which supports Apple Silicon but crashed a lot) and restarting my computer, as well as re-installing the Add-Ons. Nothing works. How can I fix this?

I have been using Firefox for ages now, and collected a rather large number of bookmarks (>15,000) As far as I know such a number poses some issues, for instance I tried several times to use Sync but was never able to use it.

Since I am using two different machines, I tend to save my bookmarks only on the main one. When I am working on the laptop I never save bookmarks but I message them to myself (never been able to save them on my main machine, sigh) and every once in a while I "restore" bookmarks from the backup set of the main machine on the laptop. It always takes a while and oftentimes it feels like the process hangs, but so far I managed.

Today I started wondering again if there's a less frustrating and more efficient way to handle this. The question I started asking myself was: could I use the same FF profile from the laptop & the main machine? Say by saving it in the cloud?

Thanks for any hint or suggestion!

When I used CONTROL + SHIFT + B it opens the bookmarks window, when the documentation says it should toggle the visibility of the bookmarks boolbar. I'm on 83.0 64-bit on Win10. I've also got FF Dev Edn (84.0b8 64-bit) and this shortcut works fine. I've tried refreshing Firefox profile/settings from the Help/Troubleshooting menu. Anything else I can try to get this working?

I am using Firefox 83.0 64-bit on a Windows laptop.

I was hoping to prototype some website code locally (using the Windows directories) prior to testing with a proper website.

I have been unable to get sessionStorage (or localStorage) to pass variables to another page unless they're in the same Windows directory. For instance, if I create 2 very simple and cut-down test files: Test1.html and Test2.html, that contain the following JavaScript:

Test1.html window.sessionStorage.setItem ("html", element.innerHTML); alert ("posting " + window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html")); window.open ("Test2.html", "_self");

Test2.html var html=window.sessionStorage.getItem ("html"); alert ("received " + html);

then it works if the two files are in the same directory. But if Test2 is in a subdirectory, and I change the open call to:

window.open (".\\subdir\\Test2.html", "_self");

then it receives null instead of the HTML that Test1 is sending. I am guessing that there is some code that is treating the change of directory as a cross-origin issue, even though they're under the same root directory.

I appreciate that the specification may be a bit vague in this non-Web situation, but Chrome does what I would expect. I thought someone might want to take a look to check if this was an oversight or deliberate.

My website is www.santiagoroutes.nl, the subdomain is mobiel.santiagoroutes.nl The certificate is valid for both (see certificate as shown by Firefox in attached picture).

Then, if you click View Certificate you see the same certificate you see when you started from the main domain.

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

Many sites have videos playing when I open the page. If I just ignore the video and scroll down without explicitly stopping the video, I get a popup window playing the video. Apparently the popup blocker doesn't consider this to be a popup. Is there any way to kill this annoying behavior?

Hi, everyone!

I found a similar solution but only for "Open link in new tab": you can go to about:config and change the preference named browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground. But I want the same thing for my saved bookmarks on Bookmarks Toolbar. Sometimes I need to open a few bookmarks from one folder and then I used for it middle-click or click on Open in new tab, but it switches to tab immediately and I should repeat a process again: click on a folder, find a bookmark, click on it, new tab opened and so on. So is there an option to open bookmarks in background tabs? How can I achieve that?

Hello As others have said recently, Firefox has become unusually greedy in RAM!

I love Firefox and it's been my favorite browser for years and years. But there it became unmanageable for me!

I'm absolutely not going to spend money to add more RAM to my PC tower, which is only three years old, and otherwise performs perfectly well for my use with all my other apps. There is 8 GB of RAM in my PC, a fast model of RAM, very fast, and expensive. You have to stop, guys, and face the truth! There is a real problem and there is no point in denying it, and saying that it takes more than 8 GB on a PC at the end of 2020.

The CONCRETE result is that we are all going to change the browser we use, it's super sad, and it is happening NOW. I don't want to change, but I have no choice. It's kind of heartbreaking for me, believe me.
