Firefox lost all my logins/passwords. This happened last year and now it happens again. I've tried to find the old logins.json file and of course it does not work with it. It is empty. I'm using linux and there is no problem with any antivirus, it is simply a Firefox 'classical' error!

WHY is this happening? What is in the mind of the programmer responsible for this error? I can't understand why is he unable to keep a single file intact?

Why Mozilla is blaming the user for not having a backup. Firefox is messing this file, not the user! Why don't you fix Firefox and stop blaming the user? Why don't you simply FIX THE PROBLEM? You are "working on it" for years. Is it rocket science to JUST LET THE FILE ALONE?

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

Geetest captcha, a captcha program used by many cryptocurrency websites, is not working for me in Firefox. The window loads, but the puzzle image does not display properly, making it impossible to solve. I do not have this problem when using chrome. I have tried many troubleshooting methods including disabling all add-ons and browsing in troubleshooting mode. Any idea what could be going on here?

when opening a website link, from a source other than through Firefox, my home page also opens up as a second tab. This is annoying as I always receive a message asking if I want to close all tabs when I close down the web page I initially opened up. I never used to have this happen. How do I turn this off?

I am trying to downgrade to ver.68.10.0 but after installing ff is updating automatically. I've tried the following advice, but it is still updating. Any ideas?

"Important: By default, Firefox is set for automatic updates. To prevent Firefox from automatically updating itself after you install an older version, you'll need to change your Firefox update settings: Click the menu button Fx57Menu and select Options. In the General panel, go to the Firefox Updates section."

Many sites do not have sign in on their hostname site. Without the full path, Lockwise does not come up/autofill. I tried the suggestion offered here to no avail. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1320590

https://auth.band.us is all Lockwise will save. Choosing email sign in brings up https://auth.band.us/email_login?keep_login=false which Lockwise does not recognize. I hoped setting signon.includeOtherSubdomainsInLookup = false on the about:config page would work but it does not.

Suggestions?

Copy pasting text from an external application into Reddit.com comment box on Firefox entirely messes up formatting

Hi. When copy-pasting text with formatting (bold, italics, spacing) into any Reddit.com comment submission box (not post submission boxes) from any external text application (Microsoft Word, Google Docs, Pastebin) using Firefox (v88.0.1), all formatting is lost and seemingly random newlines are added. Instead of lines going from the entire space left to right, they are cut off in the center where newlines are added.

The text tends to look like this. And any bold and italic portions are removed. (Intended)

The text tends to look like this. And any bold and italic portions are removed. (Resulting)

When trying to delete this text and copy-paste additional times, ghost text appears that cannot be deleted but overlays on top of any additional text. Removing any parts of text seems to paste another copy and infinitely loop more of the pasted text, creating a horrible looking overlay of text that now looks like cryptic symbols because of the overlaying.

I posted and looked through Reddit's /r/help, and it seems that multiple people are reporting this issue, all using the latest version of Firefox and having the issue appear in the last few days.

I have already tried disabling extensions, launching in Safe Mode, clearing Firefox cache, manually troubleshooting settings in about:config, looking through all entries of about:support, refreshing the Firefox profile, completely reinstalling Firefox. The issue does not appear to be my installation, but rather a bug with the software on this version.

Any help is appreciated, I am totally stumped.

I downloaded Scribus, an open source free page layout design application from https://www.scribus.net/

link text

I can't open this application because I get a message that says: "'Scribus.app' can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

I searched the Mac App Store and it does not have Scribus. I can't afford to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and I need to be able to create page layout designs, which Scribus can do.

How can I verify that https://www.scribus.net/ is a secure application site? How can I open the application if it is a secure link?

Thanks, Shelley

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

Hello,

It's been 3 days since I can no longer play any video since Firefox Developer Edition. I added absolutely nothing and it happened suddenly. When I play a video, I hear the sound but the video loads endlessly. Same with the default HTML reader in Firefox. I tried to go to preferences and uncheck the graphics acceleration, to refresh Firefox, to reinstall it but nothing works! Even in private browsing without any extension, it does not work! I tried from another browser but it works without problems.

Thanks for your help.
