Hi, my shortcuts have all disappeared. I've looked on the browser.newtabpage.pinned and all of my saved websites are listed there. But when I open a new tab they're all blank and I can't seem to add any new shortcuts either. (Also I'm not good with technology so if you do have a suggestion on how I can fix this please tell me exactly where I need to type in a command or whatever because I didn't realise I could do that until just now.) All my bookmarks are still there and obviously it remembers my saved sites so? Thanks :•)

I like to play games on Facebook. I have downloaded windows 10. I had windows 8.1 After I downloaded windows 10, when I try to play these games, the screen goes black, then a statement comes on that says WEBgl has been disabled. I have tried everything and I can't fix this. Do I need to uninstall Firefox and reinstall or can you please help me. I hope this is enough information. I have refreshed Firefox twice and that didn't help.

Thank you so much for your help.

Security Concerns: Saved forms (across VMs) and password (after clearing all history).

v155.9.1esr Debian 12

I'm testing different Debian 12 on multiple VMs, it came to my surprise to see that my VPN hash I used on a website the day before was saved by Firefox on the new VM.

The Sync was on but then which one saved my form (hash)?

  1. Numbered list item Logins & Passwords ? note: The hash was not a login but a form. If Firefox saves all the form, you should explicitly rename Logins by any forms/inputs.
  2. Numbered list item History? note: I hope this is only URLs.

If Firefox is savings "forms" (input fields) not just "logins" then it should be explicitly written. Is it an expected behavior?

It is annoying that search executes immediately instead of triggering on enter keypress, especially when a web page is big. Is there any way to disable auto-search and trigger it only when you press enter?

If you want to understand better it's pretty similar to this VS Code issue.

When using Chrome Dev Tools, I can block a request, and when I open or close Dev Tools, the request is still in the "Network request blocking" tab. It means it keeps a history of networks which I blocked.

With Firefox, as soon as I close my Dev Tools, my blocked requests are gone. Every time I open my Dev Tools in Firefox, I need to search through my notes to remember which requests I need to block, instead of being able to simply select a request from a list of previously blocked requests like in Chrome.

Linux-ESR versions 115.8 and 115.9 are constantly crashing in my Acer CB514-2H chromebook. Previous versions of Linux-ESR have worked without any problems. It does work in "safe mode", but not in normal mode with all extensions and plugins disabled. Appears to be related to something that is also disabled in the "safe mode" besides extensions and plugins.

This computer is running a MediaTek Kompanio 828 processor, 8 GB RAM and 64 GB eMMC.

I appreciate any help and advice that you can give me. If I can provide any info, let me know.


This is a link to a recent crash report.

I want to visit http://bispebjerghospital.dk/ . I have seen on https://www.whatsmydns.net/#A/www.bispebjerghospital.dk that it's DNS isn't propagating correctly, so I turned on "MAX PROTECTION" for DNS, hoping that it would let me see the site.

But Firefox showed me "Unexpected error" the first time I went to the site. And then I clicked 'always allow' and now it just spins and spins with no response visible.

How can I visit the website from one of the countries with red X's on whatsmydns?

When trying to download a college lecture, instead of downloading, the file opens and runs in a new tab. In General Settings "Save files to" is set to "Downloads" and "MP3 file (audio/mp3)" is set to Save File. This worked fine for several years until the last few months. It currently works correctly in my Chrome browser, but I prefer using Firefox.

When attempting to install an extension and clicking on "Add to Firefox" the button is replaced with a "Cylon" throbber and the popup dialog asking to confirm the install never highlights the "Add" button. The browser will stay in this state indefinitely until the tab for the extension install is closed.

Could this be a permissions problem involving the ".mozilla" directory tree in the home directory? I've been having this problem regardless of the FF version for some time (going back to at least v110.x). The recent issue involves that 115.9 ESR version installed in Debian Bookworm.

TIA...

I've been noticing that when I click History > Clear Recent history, after clicking and going back to History, it hasn't removed everything. I have Firefox on my Android phone which is set to clear history upon close. For for unknown reasons, its leaving sites from both desktop and phone apps after clearing.

I'm running Firefox v 115.9.1esr on my Mac.

Any ideas?

Revision: 115.9.1esr (64-Bit) for openSUSE Leap (15.5)

Some months ago, I unfortunately typed a password in the username field of a local page (access to my Internet box, oh Noes).

Since then, it appears each time I remove the access data in the Firefox settings. When entering data again for a login without password enquiry, the password becomes invisible again, and vice-versa.

It is impossible to show the phenomenon using a screenshot, as the password immediately disappears.

When activating reading mode with a PDF file, the content of the file is not reproduced in the reading mode window. To see the full content, you must go to the end of the PDF file in normal mode before activating reading mode, see this implementation video : http://share.emmabuntus.org/Accessibility/Problem_size_document_pdf_firefox_narrate.mp4

Do you think this comes from our PDF file which was generated from LibreOffice with the standard options?
