Is there a way that I can change this setting in config rather than downloading an add-on? This changed with the most recent Firefox update for me (I'm currently on 85.0.1. for Ubuntu). Currently, the default save behavior is for bookmarks to save to the most recent folder you've picked. My preferred behavior would be for all bookmarks to save to "Other bookmarks" until I can file them away later.

I want to save my credit cards in Firefox, but I cannot find the option this article refers to:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/credit-card-autofill

I only have "logins and passwords" there, not "forms and auto-fill".

Am I missing something? Does Firefox even save credit cards for international users or not?

Thanks!

With the new v85 of Firefox... for Microsoft Print to PDF...

the defaults for print headers & footers has changed and is no longer available to edit or even view. It seems as though my settings remain in place for other printing options like my physical printer but even there the options are not editable or viewable.

There used to be a "page setup" option but I have not be able to find this anywhere anymore.

I'm assuming that it has to do with the bug fix for pdf printing but doesn't seem that it should be an intended outcome of the fix.

Any work arounds anyone knows about or has found?

Will Mozilla implement MIDI for musical instruments? I went to sign up to the Yamaha Soundmondo web site and immediately upon landing on the web site I got this message (on the far right- SYNCH Web MIDI not suported Please Use Chrome) and took a screen shot of it. It wants me to download Chrome. There is no way on earth I am installing Chrome on any of my devices. Google knows far too much already. Any way to let Mozilla know Firefox needs this capability? I can’t be the only musician using Firefox.

Thanks,

Jerry

I am using Firefox and have noticed that when I do a view page source I do not see the current page, but a cached copy. To view the page source I first have to go to options and delete data.

Here is how to reproduce. 1. Go to a website showing changing data 2. Right click and select view page source 3. Examine the page source to see that it shows an older copy of the data, not the current data 4. Go to options and search on the term 'cache' 5. Delete the cached data 6. Go back to view page source and try again 7. Now the page source is the current data seen in Firefox

Somehow I managed to lose all of my windows, search history, addins, etc. It would appear that a new profile was created. I tried about:profiles and selecting the old profile (1.4GB) but while FIrefox starts, the places.sqlite file is now place.sqlite.corrupt. I followed the Mozilla instructions to try to fix the sqlite file but that did not help. I restored the full Firefox Application Support folder from Time Machine but that also starts with a fresh profile and selecting the old one gets me to a corrupt places.sqlite file. Given that I have TIme Machine backups, Is there no way to get back to a previous state with my windows, history, addins, etc. I am faced with losing a lot of work if I can't get back to where I was at least since a recent backup.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can offer.

I have a few add-ons installed in Firefox (85.0.1, 64-bit, under Windows 10, 1909), but when I open a Private Browsing window, I can no longer access them. True, they are still there and can be seen listed under Menu/Add-ons, but I don't see how to control them there, only enable or disable them.

If I want to use NoScript (for example) in a Private Browsing window, how do I set Firefox up to do that? -- jclarkw

As the subject line says, I want to determine the date that I added a specific bookmark. This was incredibly easy on my old Windows 7 machine with an older version of Firefox. You just clicked on "Bookmarks" at the top of the screen, then "Show All Bookmarks", "Views", "Show Columns" (ensuring that "Added" was checked) — et voilà, there it was!

Now, however, no matter what I try, I can't seem to figure out how to do this. And searching for an answer online has proven useless, as well. The only instructions I've seen refer to how I used to do it with my earlier version of Firefox.

Has the date that a bookmark was added also been deprecated/deleted from Firefox (along with the greatly missed cookie handling of yore)? Or am I just missing something obvious?

If anyone could tell me how to find the date I saved a bookmark, I'd be in your debt.

Thanks in advance.
