hello there i have the following problem the company i work for has unistalled remotely firefox from my laptop, and i do not have any way to re-install it back i have managed in some way to obtain a copy of portable firefox on the same laptop since i was not informed about this process, i have not saved my password externally and unfortunately, i was not using a firefox profile

in few words: i do not have my passwords anymore

i have seen that in such folder: C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

there are still saved three subfolders (one of them has the last modified date as 13th Sep, meaning today), therefore i think that my profile (and all relevant passwords) are still there somewhere

i would like to understand if and how i can import the passwords from the unistalled firefox in the portable firefox: i have already tried to copy those directories in: C:\Users\XXX\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

but no success, passwords are not importyed. please, i need help

thanks.

Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

The mouse-left click button does not work "with 1 site only", but works with other sites.

- I have followed the recommended steps shown in answers/replies to a similar question. However, none works at all.

  1. 1- cleared cache & cookies
  2. 2- tried safe mode and disabled/removed some add-ons manually as well
  3. 3- tried different themes and default theme
  • Please note that the same issue happens in Firefox on Android phone

I have been having this issue for 5 weeks already. as a temporary solution I am using the middle mouse click or right-click to open links in a new tab, then close the current tab

    • Please also note, that specific website works fine in other browsers (6 browsers tested)
      • the issue DOES NOT exist in Firefox on Linux

When I scan a barcode using Firefox, characters are added/rearranged. This causes errors for our company's customers and inaccurate data entry. Scanning the attached barcode produced the following results in Firefox:

How do I disable the login prompt for Password? I was on the phone troubleshooting a site I was having problems logging into, and the login for Password kept popping up every few seconds. Even after canceling it would pop up again after a few. I did not want to log into Password because the previous saved username/password would mess up the troubleshooting.

There should be an option to permanently delete specific dates (all bookmarks associated with a specific date) from the list of dates under the "restore bookmarks" option. I want to get rid of the bookmarks associated with several dates, but there is no way to do this unless I can delete the date (or dates) from the list.Otherwise, I cannot delete the objectionable bookmarks associated with those dates. Why not include a delete option when selecting a specific date? Firefox version 92.0.

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!

Hi everyone,

I've installed the most recent Firefox version (Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit)) on a new laptop. In order to use the spell checker, I've downloaded several languages as per these instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker Nevertheless only English is displayed in the selection window (see attached screenshots).

Does anyone know how I can fix this to be able to choose between the installed languages?

Thanks,

Bob
