Hi,

I have set Firefox to delete every cookie when I exit. However some websites use cookies for dark mode. My question is this : can I make it so Firefox continues to delete every cookie but save only some specific cookies For exemple, linkedin uses a dozen of cookies and two of them are used to store value for dark mode. Can i save only those two ?

Thanks in advance

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

I previously had the NoScript extension. I disabled it in preferences and restarted Firefox. It seems like one of these moz-extension:// windows were open at the time, so when I try to launch Firefox, it tries to re-create moz-extensions:// windows and dies.

I can’t start Firefox. I can’t start Firefox in --safe-mode. I’m happy to provide any debug info needed.

Sometimes, when I have 4-5 tabs open, I scroll on a page and suddenly everything freezes. The opened pages are news portals I can't switch between pages, I can't close pages Switching to another application in Linux everything works fine. I can close Firefox and restore the previous pages after reopening. No error message. The about:crashes is empty. In gnome-system-monitor firefox-bin looks good

Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon Everything is the latest version It is not caused by a Firefox add-on

Sorry for my bad English

I've just rebooted and I've lost two windows with thirty tabs, or something.

When I started Firefox, there's nothing in the Recently Closed [Tabs, Windows]

Reading online, I see that Firefox should be writing some files to the sessionstore-backup directory, like these:

recovery.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your currently live Firefox session (or, if Firefox crashed at the last shutdown and is still closed, your last session) recovery.baklz4: a backup copy of recovery.jsonlz4 previous.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your last Firefox session upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id: the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update

, but I only find recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 and both are tracking current time, which means they are getting data from the currently opened Firefox.

These are the only files I find in this directory.

Where are the other files supposed to have gone?

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

Recently, after my computer get repaired, I had to do various things, such as reinstall some software and, in the case of Firefox, put back my bookmarks and rss feeds (they were lost and if there was a backup, I didn't find it)

The problem only happen with this page. I didn't find any other page with this problem.

I checked all what I can about this page (using view-source). I compared it with other xml files, mostly other rss, and the documentation I found about rss, xml and html. Visibly, this is a regular xml/rss page. I didn't found anything special in.

There are element underlined in red in the source code but it is mostly what can be seen as an error if this is parsed at assuming it's html code.

I also check what I get if I do a right click then, in the contextual menu, I select "inspecter" (sorry, on my computer, Firefox is set to french and I don't know the english term ; this is the last entry of the menu). I got a different code. Apparently, Firefox applied (pseudo) fixes to display the page as an html document.

I checked the name of the page. This is unusual but, in my rss feeds, there are several other rss feeds named this kind of way and all of them work properly.

The last thing I checked is the RSS link that is on most pages of the site and send to this glitched page. It doesn't seem to be more the cause.

Visibly, for an unknown reason, Firefox decreed this is html code and I found no way to make it reconsider this or parse this page as xml.

It seem the first mention of problem with the rss feed on this site was a comment written almost four months ago but I don't know if it was the same problem.

I have Firefox installed on Linux (Fedora), Windows, and macOS, and on Windows and Mac, I can use ctrl (cmd on Mac) + shift + Y to open the Bitwarden extension. On Linux, this instead opens the downloads library (which is normally ctrl + shift + j...). Is there any way to change the shortcuts on Linux to be the same as the other two OSes? Judging by the many many open questions on this site about changing shortcuts, I'm not holding my breath...

Yes. "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode" is checked. Yes. In about:config "browser.urlbar.autoFill" is set to false. It STILL does it! This is maddening. I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I ask how we can disable the "Update available" popup in the top right-hand corner that appears every time we open the browser.

I have auto-updates turned off because I would like to choose myself when to update the browser and really hate being nagged by the update popup to do so!!!

To be clear, I don't want to turn off updates entirely with the "policies.json" file that I've seen with other questions; I just want to disable the update popup and still be able to update periodically AT MY OWN DISCRETION.

I really don't know why it's so hard for FF developers to give us that popup disabling option. I have always suggested using FF to people I know for over 10 years, but will no longer do so and will be looking for an alternate browser if this continues.

FF is becoming more like Microsoft by trying to dictate what's best for us at the expense of user experience.
