I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)

Idk why but sometimes firefox just doesn't prompt to generate secure password, I even have to download some extensions to generate secure password (Secure Password Generator) meaning more secure issues.

My guess is that you guys probably hardcoded something like {if "type: password" then prompt}, but it's still partly fault at developers too for bringing these huge chunks of javascript.

In screenshot there's element examaple in which i input password but no prompt whatsoever.

Today, web pages started showing small numbered boxes behind each element on a webpage. As you move down the page, the numbers are in sequence. I tried the font settings. They are all set at what they should be. I also tried the config settings, no joy. If I restart in troubleshooting mode, the boxes go away. Note: I am using Linux Mint, and Firefox just updated yesterday to V103.0.2. Any help would be appreciated.

When I print or save to Preview (PDF), certain embedded images become too large, or zoomed in. This only happens in Firefox, Safari works fine. Firefox on my phone works fine. It's only happening in Firefox on my iMac. I've attached images to show an example of what I see on the screen, and then what prints out on my printer or saves to PDF in Preview.

I don't know if this is 'website breakage' or not, but I am unable to use the mouse wheel to zoom when using the Weather.com map page in Firefox. I've tried the same site in MS Edge and it works. I've also verified that I can zoom in and out of Google Maps when using Firefox, so the problem seems limited to Firefox and the Weather.com map page. Any thoughts? I've looked for settings, etc. that might impact the function, but couldn't find any. For further detail, the page appears to react briefly to the scroll wheel, and you see just a fraction of movement, but then it freezes at that magnification and I have to use the + and - icons on the page to zoom in or out. This is not a huge deal, but I don't understand what's happening and I'll take insight. Thanks.

Hello,

Recently when we print using firefox as our browser it is corrupting the header and footer on our letters and invoices to a larger scale e.g. 400%. We have tried using chrome and we dont have the same issues, it works perfectly. We would prefer to use firefox due to the security settings, so we would love to resolve this issue. We have reset and wiped our Mac and reinstalled all of our drivers and software (including firefox) and we are still having the same issue across all of our computers.

Our number is [removed phone# from public], we would appreciate your help!

I have read hours of Q&A about this problem here in this forum before posting, and cannot find a solution.

Until very recently, whenever I would click a link in a page, it would "Open in Firefox" in a new tab. Then after reading it or printing it or whatever I wanted to do, I could click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button if I wanted to save it, and an Explorer would open up allowing me to select where I want to put it and what I want to call it (if I wanted to change the name it comes with) before downloading/saving.

Now, when I click a link it just downloads (even though most of the time I don't want that). Despite all I've read, I've tried a dozen settings, and I CANNOT get that behavior back.

If I set the browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to False, and select "Open with Firefox" when it prompts me, I can't get it to STOP prompting me. It prompts me EVERY TIME, even though I have checked the box repeatedly for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on"

And yet it is STILL downloading automatically when it opens for viewing in the new tab, and I am forever now cleaning and deleting crap out of my downloads.

I have my default PDF reader set to the reader I like, and when I'm NOT in Firefox, I do NOT want to have to right-click and select my preferred reader each time.

But when I AM IN FIREFOX, what I need it to do is

- Open in Firefox, in a new tab, 
- DON'T prompt me, just do it, and 
- DON'T download it, unless if I then want to keep it I click the download [Fx98PDFviewer-DownloadButton] button.

HOW CAN I GET IT THIS BEHAVIOR BACK PLEASE?

I made a new weibo account that needed an password. I used firefox's auto gen password and selected save password. But firefox is not saving this password, nor is it autofilling or in the saved login section in the settings. I always had this problem. Now i need this password because weibo requires me to use my username instead of my number to get my account back. But I didn't even make an username yet because I can't log in after I made an account. I just need to get this password back.

Hello everyone,i lost my saved datas like history,saved password etc when i changed my gmail password which i used to syc my firefox account.I wonder why it happened because i did not tick the box asking if i want to delete them.I also used another laptop to check and the data i lost in my other laptop were there.I added secondary email as back up and clicked to change the new email to primary only for me to see my data got lost from the second laptop again.why? i tried to change the password of my first primary email back to the old password but google did not allow me.My question is,can changing back to my password back to the old one bring my lost data back? i asked because that was the password used by firefox to save my data in their server.will google ever allow me to change back to old password after sometime? what i am amazed at is that i login using other browswer with the new pasword on another laptop and i got back my syc datas.Thanks in advance for your feed back.

Discover credit card log-in won't work

Saturday, when I tried to check my Discover credit card account online, it needed to send me a verification code via text. I entered the code and everything worked OK. I understand that, from time to time, this needs to happen for security purposes. The last text I got this message from Discover for this was back in February.

But then, on Sunday, I got the same message. But this time, I never received the code. I waited about 10 minutes, then asked for a different code to be sent. I never got this one either. I called Discover, and they tried a few things & eventually verbally gave me a verification code. This worked and I logged in just fine.

On Monday when I logged in, again I was told that they needed to sent me another verification code. I didn't have time to deal with it, so I moved on.

Today, again it required a verification code. I didn't receive the text, waited 10-12 minutes or so, and requested a 2nd code. I never got this on either. I called Discover again, and was connected to their tech support people. We tried several options, then they suggested that I try using a different browser. I also have AVG on my computer. I tried that and got through to my Discover account instantly. They then suggested that I contact you to figure out what the problem is. After I got off the phone with them, I used AVG to log in and out of my Discover account maybe 5-6 times and never had any problem.

Can you figure out why my Discover account isn't working with Firefox? I am currently using version 103.0.2. Firefox has been my primary web browser ever since I got my first computer in March 2000, and this was then known as Netscape Navigator 3.??? I have never had any issue like this with any website I have used until this problem started with Discover.com.

THANKS!

Starting yesterday, the preview images in GIS has been looking off center in Firefox (see attached). If I switch to protection mode the image looks fine. If I open up in any other browser it looks fine as well. I have already cleared my web cache and cookies, refreshed Firefox and then reinstalled it, changed my screen resolution settings, and nothing seems to be fixing it. There's no apparent settings in Google itself to adjust the image...it just started doing that in Firefox out of nowhere.
