I need to transfer saved logins from Firefox on a soon to be retired laptop to Firefox on a new laptop. New laptop has a few logins created while setting it up than I copied manually knowing that when I import from the old laptop with many logins, the few on the new laptop will be overwritten. My problem is that Firefox can export logins into a logins.csv file but it seems can only import from a Microsoft browser. Is copying the key4.db and logins.json from the old to the new the only correct way to do this? The old laptops logins.json file has a recent date but the key4.db has a 2018 date even though some new logins were saved last month. Do I only need to copy the logins.json file?

Hi,

Since the most recent update, websites are loading as if they are experiencing 'blocking' for example when I go to a certain page nothing loads until the whole website is loaded in the background then it suddenly appears complete. So for a short while I have no idea the link or website I visited is working.

Any suggestions or ideas?

Thanks

See attached image. Things I want to be able to do, which were once easily accomplished with Tab Mix Plus. When I type in search bar, open in new tab. When I type in address bar, open in new tab. Have new tab open at far right (be the last tab) so it is easy to locate. Ability to protect pinned tabs to protect them from being accidentally closed. Currently, links still open in new tabs but not bookmarks and history. I'm in over my head. I just don't know how to get things to work the way they once did with Tab Mix Plus and don't know why this wonderful add-on isn't valued by Firefox. Thanks!

I do not wish to see advertisements for Mullvad on my Private Browsing new tab pages. But I can't even seem to opt out of them, as they remain even after searching "Sponsored" in about:preferences and unchecking all the applicable boxes. uBlock Origin also seemed unable to remove them, even with a custom filter and after enabling it on about-scheme.

So I went to fix it with userchrome CSS, by adding the following to a file named userChrome.css inside a folder named chrome inside my profile folder (after setting toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to True):

[code] /* Remove advertisements for Mozilla VPN */ @-moz-document url(about:privatebrowsing) { .promo { display: none !important; } } /code

However, even after restarting the browser, these advertisements are still present.

What am I doing wrong?

Obviously people have asked this before, but those threads all seem to be closed now. The idea that a browser would not want to have a consistent UI with every other part of the operating system is absolutely nuts, so why is it not easier (or even automatic?!) to place the 'close tab' button on the left when running on a Mac operating system?

I have tried the solutions recommended here – https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253751 – but without any success. Maybe someone could help me understand what I am doing wrong? Better yet, maybe Mozilla could remove the need for such workarounds and implement what ought to be a standard feature?

Hi, I can't install Firefox and I don't know what's going on here.

Yesterday I installed the latest version of Firefox and it worked fine. Then, I turned off the laptop and the next day when I was going to use Firefox, it didn't load any pages. Edge was working fine, Chrome was working fine, but Firefox was not working. Trying to fix the problem, I decided to uninstall Firefox and installing it again. In order to clean even more the previous installation, I even manually deleted the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder to remove all possible traces. I restarted the laptop and downloaded again the Firefox installer. I don't know how, but the installer detected that I had already installed Firefox before. I unchecked restart Firefox and hit the button to continue with the installation. After this, was impossible to install Firefox again. I got a message saying that the installation cannot continue because the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. The message said that this problem can be fixed by reinstalling the program, but that is not true, everytime I try to reinstall it, I get again the VCRUNTIME140_1.dll error.

After this, the installation stops and the Firefox icon appears on the desktop, but it doesn't install properly the software and when I open it, I cannot browse the Internet.

Do you know what's going on here and how to solve this?

Cheers

Just noticed today that Firefox on my work computer (Mac) is adding an icon to the MacOS Dock that opens the URL of the currently active tab from Firefox on my personal computer (also a Mac). Firefox on my work computer is signed into Sync w/ my work Firefox account and Firefox on my personal computer is signed into sync w/ my personal Firefox account. This is crazy and unacceptable.

I have not previously signed into my personal Firefox account on my work computer, the Connected Services section of the Firefox Account Settings for my personal account does not show my work computer and the Connected Services for my work account does not show my personal computer.

Both computers are on the same physical network, but do not otherwise interact.

Firefox keeps resetting Bing SafeSearch back to Moderate. This change occurs with every single search and the problem has only begun since in the last week to 10 days (it is now 1/21/2022.) I have cleared all histories and cookies and even gone as far as to completely reset my computer. It happens on all my PC computers, Win 10 and Win 11. It happens with all combinations of my Firefox profiles and all of my MS accounts. It happens when I'm not signed into any Firefox profile or Bing account. It happens in normal mode as well as private mode. It happens only with Firefox. It does not happen with Edge or Chrome. This is very clearly a conflict between Firefox and Bing SafeSearch.

Hello. Before the "proton" update to the Firefox UI, I had nicely saved space in my browser by putting the navbar up on the same level with the menu bar which is able to make the UI area of Firefox take up less vertical space on my screen. Proton broke this however, so I reverted.

What sort of userchrome.css code do I now need to use in order to put the menu bar and navbar on the same level, like the attached image?

If you use userChrome.css to customise the tab toolbar, you might see the height of the tabs increase with Firefox 96.0.2. For me the fix was to add an entry to userChrome.css:

   #tabbrowser-tabs:not([secondarytext-unsupported]) .tab-label-container {
     height: initial !important;
   }

This counteracts a change in 96.0.2 which sets the height of that element to 2em.
