I truly cannot fathom why a browser, in this day & age, cannot put the list of open tabs & windows in the drop-down menu, in even SOME KIND OF ORDER! But no, it's nothing more than a long list, impossible to filter in any way, that is not in chronological, alphabetical, order of most recent used, no option to list via website or page title, etc. This is so ridiculously frustrating, along with the molasses lack of speed in opening up windows or tabs, that I'm on the verge of just chucking this entire app, for good. Why do our state-of-the-art advanced technological devices and apps, feel more like we're going backwards, and not forward??

A lot of Windows applications launch with the size of the window as it was when closed. Every time I Iaunch Firefox, I have to resize the window to fit my needs. Doesn't Firefox preserve those conditions for the next time the application is launched?

Thank you for your time.

That, simply YouTube does not work well with Firefox, among the problems we have that it is possible to log in to YouTube in a normal way, but immediately and frequently in the use of the page the information and interface displayed is that of someone who does not log in, for Therefore, you cannot comment, you cannot save videos in lists, it is a problem that makes me no longer use Firefox but I want to use it again.

I have tested this on other computers and the problem is the same.

What is happening?

Thanks

Hi all.

Trying to be safer on the web I use the Https- Only Mode all windows, though some trusted web sites I will allow to be exempted.

One is the Australian weather bureau website which recently stopped being a Https site. (www.bom.gov.au)

I have entered the following addresses into exemptions *Image 1 attached

http://bom.gov.au http://www.bom.gov.au https://bom.gov.au https://www.bom.gov.au

However on opening a new tab in a private window ... and type "bom.gov.au" *image 2 attached.

I'm taken to an error page (http://www.bom.gov.au/akamai/https-redirect.html) saying that the web site no longer is Https. (I tried entering that full address in exemptions but only shortens it back to bom.gov.au)

Interesting the tab still shows the little padlock that indicates the tab is still requesting Https Only Mode?

If I turn that to Off, I proceed to the site and then if I look into the Exemptions the following has been added to my list *image 3 attached.

http://www.bom.gov.au^privateBrowsingid=1 set to "Off Temporary"

(I tried deleting that full address line and re-entering it to set it to "Turn Off" but its fails)

Is there a permanent workaround ???

I recently set up Firefox Recovery Keys knowing that I was formatting my PC. I am logged into my Firefox account on my laptop and have forgotten my password. Using Firefox Sync and Google Authenticator, I can log into Firefox on my Android.

I am trying to log into Firefox on my PC now, and have forgotten my password, and now none of the Recovery Keys I was given by Firefox are working (I am correct in saying these keys are 10 digits long, and you are given multiple keys when setting up the Recovery Keys?).

I cannot reset my password and lose all of my generated logins. Is there any other way to log into Firefox on desktop, say using google authentication or sync like android?

Hi,

My hard drive crashed and I was able to recover the files. I need to recover my Firefox history file. I know it is stored in the profiles folder as places.sqlite. What I need to do is open the file so I can see the history and recover the needed data.

I'm working from a data recovery disk (the source computer is still down). Is there a way to open the file and see it in Firefox? Or, is there a way to export the data into a format that can be read by Excel?

Thanks very much for your help!

Adam

I got a second hand HP Spectre x360 (2015) today which came with Ubuntu 20.04 preinstalled and it seemed fine at first but when I connected to the internet I found Firefox to be incredibly slow to load any site I tried to access. Trying to watch a video on youtube took about two minutes to load. Facebook and Gmail both refuse to load properly at all. No matter what site I try, it seems to take at least 30 seconds to load, if it loads at all. This might be the slowest computer I've ever used, and I remember the 90s! I know the internet connection isn't the problem since my other devices work perfectly. I tried to download some other browsers (Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi) to see if Firefox was causing the issue but they all failed to download properly (error message "failed to install file: not supported").

I'm at a loss. I've tried searching for answers online which suggested fiddling with the proxy settings and going to about:config to toggle the "network.dns.disableIPv6" from "false" to "true". and nothing seems to have helped so far. Any ideas please? I like the computer but it's totally unusable for me at this point.
