So I wanted to join Rally, but I am concerned about granting access to my passwords and logins to the Rally clients. If I create a new profile and sign in with my only Firefox account will Rally clients have access to my passwords and logins from other profiles?

Thx.

Using Windows 11 and want to set Gmail as my mailto option when clicking on email links on websites. Under Firefox/Settings/Mailto I no longer see the option for Gmail, not an expert on technical matters so I have googled the problem but still can't find a solution. Do I need to find an App on Windows or perhaps an Extension within Firefox, feeling completely lost at the moment.

Is there any way (as in Thunderbird, via layouts.css.devPixelsperPx) to enlarge everything on a given monitor/display/colorDepth setting? Or an approach using userChrome.css that impacts everything, not just displayed text in the browser. Yes, this is a "tired old eyes" (excessive nanoseconds spent looking at bigger and bigger displays with higher and higher resolution) type question. My setup is multiple boot OS including Windows 11, Ubuntu, Manjaro, Arch. In each Firefox is the default browser, but Chrome and Edge seem to have more fine-grained controls for managing the chrome display than Mozilla. Using the latest 64-bit Firefox (100.02) if that's helpful.

How to limit search to only useful pages

Hi,

There are two suggestions (or questions if I simply cannot find these): - as the default behaviour of the browser, I want to be able to only see websites from Europe. Somewhere on the net I found that the following address does it: https://www.google.com/webhp?cr=countryAT|countryBE|countryBG|countryHR|countryCY|countryCZ|countryDK|countryEE|countryFI|countryFR|countryDE|countryGR|countryHU|countryIE|countryIT|countryLV|countryLT|countryLU|countryMT|countryNL|countryPL|countryPT|countryRO|countrySK|countrySI|countryES|countrySE

However, when I am trying to use it in firefox as my Start Page, it opens all of these in separate tabs and it does not work. Also as far as I understand using the link is not possible for new tabs.

The reason is simple. For example, when looking for cooking recipes, pages from the USA use strange units that cannot be understood and there is no point in translating each of these manually as all recipes are available in million of versions - it is just a matter of clicks. But I don't want to waste time each time on checking the websites one by one; if the cooking website is from Europe, the units will be of a standard and I don't have to worry. It is the same in relation to many products of any kind. European and American markets are completely different and reading description of something only to find out at the end that it is only available in the USA is waste of time.

- it should be possible in firefox to block some websites or portals by some button. I know that there is an add-on for this but it is only for 10 pages or so, so in reality it is not very useful. It also only works in the way that the page won't open when clicked on. However, it would be much better if unwanted portals or websites were simply removed from search results.

There are too many fake websites nowadays providing incorrect or misleading information. If it happens that I come across one of these, I want to be doing that only once - and block them forever.

I'm really confused about how profiles and sync work together for what I assume is a pretty common use case, especially now will all the WFH. I have two devices:

1. Personal laptop 2. Work laptop

I'd like to keep my bookmarks, history, addons etc separate, but be able to access my work environment when working from home on my personal laptop. I've read a lot about profiles and sync and multi-account container but I'm still confused as to how I achieve what I'm trying to do.

Having multiple profiles on one device is straightforward. But AFAIK if I attach two profiles to the same sync account, and try to sync both between two devices, it will only sync one of the profiles (and then merge everything if I try to sync the other). And if I have two separate sync accounts (work and personal), each with a single profile, I can't switch between them without also merging everything. How does one achieve this then?

Dear Sir or Madam,

I'm running 101.0.1 and spell check no longer works on any mail app like Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo, BT Mail. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly. This is despite my Firefox Settings being as below.....

Language Choose the languages used to display menus, messages, and notifications from Firefox. ENGLISH GB Set Alternatives… ENGLISH GB Choose your preferred language for displaying pages. Choose… ENGLISH (United Kingdom) (en-gb) Check your spelling as you type = Tick (Yes)

Could you please advise a fix?

Kind regards,

Neil.

P.S. If I use Chrome or Edge then spell check works correctly.

I had been using Firefox browser for awhile, but because of playback performance issue, I have to using another browser just for video playing, especially for 4K video.

Compared to Edge, Firefox seems taking more resources to playback the YouTube video and more heat. When look at the Task Manager, the Video Processing is 0%, and GPU is running significantly more resources on '3D'.

Hello,

I noticed that a setting on the about:config page was removed: the "security.csp.enable" setting. I was using this setting to disable CSP to be able to load local JS scripts on some non-locally hosted sites, for debugging and development, work related purposes.

Was this setting really removed? Is there a way to disable CSP on Firefox on the latest version?

Thanks! Gabriel.

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean

I have tried every troubleshooting from the other answers available on the support website but whenever I am trying to login, it shows a black screen and I also unregistered Twitter from about:serviceworkers but still nothing, I also cannot upload the screenshot here it just says uploading and nothing else. Images are not uploading even from other devices.

Here is one of the errors showing on the console: Cross-Origin Request Blocked

Update: this issue was because of a filter from uBlock's list. Fixed now. I am not sure how to close my question.

I've gone through all of the steps to reset my Firefox browser and attempted to change my search engine from Duckduckgo to Startpage. Every time it works a couple of times then Duckduckgo hijacks the search engine back to itself. I've deleted this search engine, reset my browser, said yes to prompts by Startpage to be the default browser, and tried everything that I can think of. Very, very frustrating. And I start to worry about the security of the Firefox browser itself. Any ideas?

Thanks, David

I used to watch the TED videos using the links in their email. Then some time ago they stopped playing. It accesses the website and video but there is a circle going around and nothing happens. I tested the same on Microsoft Edge and it works. I do not like Edge and hopefully, you can solve this issue because it is important. I have looked at all the solutions online but they do not fix the problem. I use Windows 11 and everything is up to date.
