I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

When I'm using my Firefox browser and signing in to my Gmail account, the autofill function always gives me several old, expired gmail account names that I don't wish to see anymore. It's very annoying. I think I have turned off all the autofill options under Firefox>Preferences, but all these old account names keep showing up. Any suggestions for how to solve this? Thank you

Firefox is displaying a smaller font on some websites. It only does it new windows, not in a private window and other browsers are fine.

Screenshots attached show the correct size (first attachment) and the incorrect smaller size (second attachment).

It's not windows accessibility aka ease of access, as nothing else is affected. All pages are on 100% zoom. I've gone to settings -> font -> advanced and the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" is ticked.

Any ideas please?

I recently started experiencing errors for logging into third-party websites that use Google sign-in.

On one site (coches.net), I have the sign-in popup loop for like 3 times and then disappear but leaves me unlogged.

On the other site (etoro.com), the sign-in popup shows but then I get an error message from the site about the login. Then it won't let me reconnect since CloudFlare won't accept my "I'm not a robot" prompt and keeps reloading the same page.

This started happening yesterday. I'm not aware of any Firefox or Anti-Virus updates that have happened since, measures not existing yesterday.

I can sign-in correctly from Chrome with no issues.

My community association uses Constant Contact for its documents, notices, etc. When I get an email message from them, it often contains several links beginning with https://r20.rs6.net. When I try to access one of those links, Firefox tells me "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at r20.rs6.net." Chrome and Edge do not give the same error - they can access the requested page. Is there some setting in Firefox that I need to change to fix this problem? Firefox has been my default browser for years, but I also like to read notices from my community association.

Is there a way to transfer all my log ins and their words from my desktop Mac to my new lap top Mac Air. I need to do it possible my a flash drive since the first time I did it by migration and overloaded the lap top with all the stuff on the desk top. After lots of work to delete everything and reinstall the OS I did it by the flash drive. But I don't have all my logins and their passwords on the lap top.

[SOLVED] Keyword in bookmark caused Firefox to redirect all searches starting with the word "amazon" to Amazon

Whenever I type something in the URL bar that starts with the word "amazon," instead of getting a Google search for what I typed, I get redirected to Amazon.com with whatever I typed as a product search. For example, if I type "amazon sucks" in Firefox's URL bar, instead of getting a Google search for the phrase "amazon sucks," I get an Amazon page with the word "sucks" pre-filled in Amazon's product search (and a screen full of socks).

I don't have a search keyword for "amazon" in my Firefox settings. As far as I can tell, no other magic word does the same thing. (For example, if I type "yahoo sucks" or "walmart sucks," I get the desired Google searches. I don't get redirected to a Yahoo or Walmart page.

How do I turn this behavior off?

Firefox on windows 11 crashes between 0 and 15 times in a row as soon as I hit the keyboard. Same happens with chrome so that is not a firefox bug. Disabling all extensions does not help nor does a refresh. After a certain number of crashes, it starts working. Once it starts working, I can use the keyboard until next time I start it. No issue if I cut/paste text in fields, or if I use keyboard via vnc viewer. Only browser apps have this issue. I have also tried diabling all non windows services, and thought it was solved until it didn't. I would love a hint on what to look for.

I have the latest release (auto update)

Firefox is set to remember history, but every time I close it and re-open it, links in websites that once had purple text is now back to white, so I don't know what link I'm on, Firefox remembers this through history saved, why does it reset back to white text? Does it have something to do with bitdefender or bitdefender VPN? Can anyone else test thie out with firefox and bitdefenders full security on? Firefox is set to save everything by the way. Only started happening after installing bitdefender.

Hello, my WIN 10 Drive got busted, meaning I can not boot with it anymore. However, with an other WIN10 drive I still can access the data. I need to save all the Firefox bookmarks before I will format the Drive and install a fresh WIN10. All the searches just tell how to backup when Firefox is open or Win is running: Press WIN Key... etc. None of them is applicable. I have I have bookmarks saved as bookmarks as well as I have a lot on the upper bar. I need them all.

Please teach me how I can back them up and restore on a fresh Firefox. In previous crashes I lost a lot of bookmarks already. ' Thank you.

The only icons I can see on the right hand side of my toolbar is the NoScript icon, along with the Save to Pocket, FF Account, Extensions and hamburger buttons.

I should have about 12.

I just installed a new system, launched FF and set it up to sync with my account. Everything else appears to run fine - passwords, history, etc. The Tree Style Tab works fine too.

I have double checked the other solutions I found here, such as private viewing options, or trying to find the icons in the customize screen, but that's not the issue.

My other FF instances on other machines are still fine.

I just updated FF on this problem machine to 115.0.2 but no joy.

I subscribe to The Times (UK) and use many of their different portals. I am, however, experiencing a really odd problem. For the last three Mondays in a row when I hover over a link it shows one destination which is now three weeks out of date and downloads same when clicked. When I Inspect(Q) the relevant bit of script it shows the correct page for the current week. All other links from the current edition work as expected. The link works correctly on other days of the week. The IT support at The Times have no idea why this is happening and have simply asked me to do stupid things like clearing all cache and cookies relevant to their site. this has no effect whatsoever!

How can this happen and have you any help on the subject?
