How do I get Domain Guessing to work in private windows? The address bar automatically adds 'www' and '.com' to URLS in regular windows and tabs but it does not do this in Private Browsing Windows. Is there a setting I'm missing or is it even possible in Private Browsing mode?

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

Here are an examples using one site: [Image 1] is Firefox's default 100% zoom. Note the flushed text at the left margin. Ideally, it should look like [Image 2], however, that was zoomed down to 90% where the text body also shrinks along with it and making reading a tad harder. Obviously, not the best solution. [Image 3] is the same site on Safari. [Image 4] is taken from Palemoon. [Image 5] is reddit.com's comment page, again with the unsightly margin problem.

Any ideas how to fix this? Would really appreciate any troubleshooting tips.

I just fired up a computer I have not used in like 6 months.

I tried to login to my CURRENT Firefox account which I use with 3 devices.

I go through the email + password + verification process but when I finally enter the verification code (sent to the RIGHT email address) Firefox says "wrong password" and shows an OLD email I used to use.

I changed this email twice at least in the past 1+ years so I am not sure what's happening.

I just added the "Word Count" add-on. I am supposed to be able to select text on any site, right click and a notification will let me know the word count of the text.

Here is my problem: When I select text and right click, I see "Word Count" it as an option, but I don't get a notification when I click on it.

So far I have:

-disabled and enabled the add-on. -gone to the notification settings. I only see an option to add a website--no option to make an exception for an add-on. -restarted firefox and am using the latest version.

Also: I don't have any other add-ons.

Can you help me? Thanks!

Bonjour, J'ai supprimé par inadvertance les identifiants de Firefox pour iOS - je croyais que Lockwise allait remplir les champs à la manière de Lastpass (!)... Quand la synchronisation s'est faite avec le mac, j'ai perdu tous mes identifiants aussi sur Firefox browser - bizarement quelques jours plus tard alors que la synchronisation se faisait bien entre temps pour l'historique . J'ai arrêté Firefox Sync et j'ai pu récupérer une sauvegarde de mon profil. Sauf que quand je synchronise à nouveau, mes identifiants disparaissent ! Faut-il que je crée un nouveau compte ? Merci par avance pour vos réponses. C'est très ennuyeux. Je n'utilise pas d'autre navigateur/gestionnaire et tous mes mots de passe sont là.

Hello,

It is suspected that latest version of Firefox version 78.11.0esr (64-bit) is causing operathing systems to crash. I have not seen it on Windows platform as I am not using it. Platforms I am using are OSX and XUbuntu. The error occurs lingering on a site for a very long time. First it starts getting screen graphic errors like, some pixels are not being updated correctly. Then after a while screen starts to flicker, in a massive state, like the graphic processor is broken. In some cases with command key strokes one is able to kill Firefox, screen is back to normal and one can continue working. Facebook is the site that most commonly is causing error, but there are also other sites.

According to the release info for the latest update (Version 92.0):

"The bookmark toolbar menus on macOS now follow Firefox visual styles."

I have no idea what that means or how to fix it! All I know is that the lists of bookmarks I have saved under toolbar tabs are now all double-spaced. I don't want them double-spaced — that makes all the lists twice as long! I just want them the way they were before the update . . . HELP!!!

All of a sudden I cannot download attachments in emails from my aol.com account (using the aol.com website). I can still do so on other browsers, but not on Firefox. I have cleared my cache, and even reinstalled Firefox (after deleting my user profile files and signing back in on a newly reinstalled copy). The problem persists. The problem does not happen when I boot in Troubleshoot Mode. But I cannot figure out what's causing the problem to fix it in regular mode. Help!
