https://www.nectar.com/ has changed. The log in page is now:- https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number The saved password for https://www.nectar.com doesn't appear or work on this page. The automatic 'Saving 'new' password' doesn't appear or work. Deleting and saving the new address https://www.nectar.com/id/start/enter-card-number doesn't work either because Firefox Logins and passwords deletes everything after .com?

Round and round and round we go.

Why is there no way to contact Firefox? Nobody on/in the Community can make the required technical changes?

So this is all just frustration and time wasting?

Shouldn't Firefox have recognised this themselves and made the necessary changes?

Which version of Firefox do I have to revert to that will allow me to put tabs under the address bar and not have tabs the same colour as the menu bar? I had the current version of Firefox installed, but after doing a Windows reset to the 20H2 version of Windows 10, the even newer version seems to be less customisable.

How to make Firefox automatically use a specific application when clicking on a link to a torrent file?

Firefox Browser 86.0.1 (32-bit) [Windows 8.1]

After installing Firefox, when clicking for the first time on a link to a torrent file, a dialog box "You have chosen to open" / "What should Firefox do with this file? (Open with... / Save File)" appeared. A day later, when clicking on another link to a torrent file, the same dialog box appeared, this time with the added checkbox option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on".

{About this, I wonder, why this checkbox option did not appear from the beginning. Is there a bug that prevents this checkbox option to appear in some circumstances? — Maybe the explanation for this is here.}

Now, after I check the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on", and select to open a torrent file with a specific application, the torrent file is opened by that application. So far, so good.

After that, I expected, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, that the dialog box "You have chosen to open" would NOT appear again, and that the torrent file would be opened directly in the chosen application. But no, that dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again each time I click on a link to a torrent file (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective.

After that, the Content Type "TORRENT file" has appeared in "Options/General/Files and Applications/Applications", with the option "Always ask" selected. The fact that this option is selected now, is not expected, because of the checking of "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" earlier on. After selecting the alternative option "Use other...", and then choosing a specific application from a list of helper applications for the Content Type "TORRENT file", the corresponding Action is now set to use that specific application.

After that, when clicking in Firefox on another link to a torrent file, the dialog box "You have chosen to open" appears again (with the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" being checked). So now again, that checked option to do it automatically from now on, is not effective. The same happens when clicking on other links to a torrent file.

Why is the checked option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" not effective? Is this a bug, or is there something that I can do to make it effective?

{I tried whether the extension "Content-Type Fixer" could solve my problem, but this is not the case. When using this extension, it reported: "This content-type is already set up!"}

Hi,

I wanted to check my historic but I couldn't access it. I first thought it had disappeared or something but it seems that the "show historic" button is actually hidden by my task bar. Or, in other words, the tab is too long.

I can't find anything in the setting to change it.

Thanks in advance if you know how to solve this problem.

Hi there,

I wanted to sync my reading list via Pocket between multiple devices. On my iOS devices, this works fine but I cannot enable Pocket for Firefox on my Windows laptop. In about:config the setting for extensions.pocket.enabled is set false and is greyed out, so I cannot change it. I checked about:profiles and found two profiles, one in root and one in local directory. The one in the root directory has a prefs.js file, where extensions.pocket.enabled is apparently set to true (contrary to what is said in about:config).

I have done some googling but couldn't figure out why I cannot change the setting in about:config. I would very much appreciate your help. My laptop has Windows 10 and Firefox is of version 87.0. The laptop has an enterprise environment, so maybe some app or default setting is blocking the settings. However, I don't know what to look for, but I am granted admin rights to make changes if necessary.

Many thanks in advance.

Best, Nicolas

Hello, I use Windows 7 with a Gateway computer. On the "new tab" page I pin sites,but, they are removed sooner or later for new sites. When I pin a site , I expect it to remain . So, even if I do not visit a site for a long time, is there a way to keep my pinned sites from being displaced ? Also, instructions say, "to show more or fewer top sites" to hover until the edit link appears. I try hovering all over but can not get the edit link to appear. Any help will be much appreciated.

If there are several applications with their own web interface (web server on different ports) on a host (same IP address), the same favicon is always displayed in the bookmarks for all applications.

Example: On one computer there are several applications with their own web interfaces such as home automation, media server, network management, etc. The applications are addressed via different ports (https://mydomain.com:xxx). The correct associated favicons are always displayed in the corresponding browser tabs.

But when bookmarks are created for these applications, they all get the same favicon.

I can't see any regularity which favicon is chosen. At first I thought it was always the favicon of the application running on port 80. However, I have also managed other favicons depending on the order in which I created the bookmarks. But in the end all bookmarks always have the same favicon, because the favicons also change later after the bookmark originally had the right favicon :-(

Windows 10, 64 bit. Firefox ver 87 For the past several days I have not been able to sign into my online banking at Scotiabank. When I enter my user name and password I immediately get an error message "Sorry, we couldn't complete your request". At the top it says "something went wrong" and the message comes from the Scotiabank site saying "generic-error". I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all cache and cookies. Have tried restarting the computer. I note that Firefox appears to have updated itself on April 3rd and that appears to be when the problem started...could be just coincidental. Other web sites appear fine. I can use Microsoft Edge to log in to Scotiabank just fine as well, but I prefer Firefox. Anyone have thoughts on this? Thanks

I already tried turning off ".osk.detect_physical_keyboard" and on again. it didnt change Anything. Nor did changing Settings in the WIndos Settings itself.

can anyone help me with this Issue? It is really annoying and doesnt make Firefox a good option as my standard browser.
