After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

When I close Firefox at night & open it next day. Every tab is lost, so I have no record of the sites I was using. This has happened several times. I am now seriously looking at dumping Firefox due to its very unstable & unreliable performance. Fire fox does not offer any means of reopening all the tabs that it closed, it actually deletes all tracking. Firefox is unstable, unreliable & totally user unfriendly. I am dumping Firefox for a more professional browser, as Firefox is rude & makes it impossible to contact & seek advice. I think Firefox sucks.

Hello. After reading numerous posts addressing similar issues & having no success, I've decided to post a question of my own. I am running the current version of firefox, 94.0.2. I use the Search Bar religiously for searches to sites like google, wikipedia, youtube, amazon, and ebay. I NEVER use the address bar for searches. I have attempted to disable all functionality associated with searching via the address bar. When I go to the address bar, it is because I have a specifc url I know I want to type with a specific destination in mind. Occasionally, I have a need to just go to the home page of one of my search sites, most often it's amazon.com. Recently (not sure which version of firefox) I've found when I go to the Address Bar & type amazon.com, I cannot just go to amazon.com, instead the address bar turns into a search bar. How do I disable this? Its driving me mad! I swear I've disabled every option I can within about:config related to urlb. Please Help. I don't want to switch to Chrome, but I'm tired of my settings getting messed up every time mozilla pushes a new version.

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

Not running Private mode. No profile file warnings on load of Browser.

Attempting to clear downloads or other related items (history, etc) results in no action and no error. Button click registered, but no action taken. Tried various ways (buttons, right click menus, etc), always the same result.

Sync of history/etc enabled.

Attaching profile directory (while FF running).

I chose lavender as the background color, but I hate it. It has changed all my links to lavender and I want to go back to the default settings before I added the lavender. I want the default settings before the Colorways options were made available.

Even though I have figured out how to change the themes, the lavender color is still present in certain words. I want it to go. I want what I had before I added the lavender theme.

I have looked at the articles, but I cannot find an option that says "go back to what you had before" or "undo" or "restore default settings". I'm possibly missing a step. Don't know. I'm frustrated that I can add something so easily, but not get rid of it so easily.

Please help me restore my back ground colors to pre-Colorways add-on lavender. I have a Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6.

Hello, I'm on windows 10 & updated to 94.0 then 94.0.1 but both updates are either very slow loading of some sites or it won't load the page/site at all. I've used FF for years & never had an issue. I disabled all extensions (did it manually & through FF troubleshooting mode) & antivirus but the same thing happens. I'm at my wits end & have swapped my main browsing to Edge & just gathering all my extensions for that browser.

Just trying to find help is now a nightmare.

How can I go back to the previous version before the 94.0 update?

Regards Chris

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

Hi Team,

I have set the proxy only at /etc/environment, but I do use proxy in only one specific user to run my azure cloud agent in order to use pipeline, however to be able to stablish the agent's connection to the azure's platform I "must" to open a firefox session and input manually the "Authentication Required - Mozilla Firefox" (The proxy moz-proxy), until that moment no problem at all. In a period of 60 minutes after I have rebooted the client my authentication is asked again, it looks like is a cycle, I really need to fix it. The great way is the authentication to remain such as autologin or something similar.

Could you please assist? I is impacting my project.

Thank you very much,
