Before updating Firefox to 123.0.1 (64-bit) + MacOS Sonoma, I could use FIDO2 on OnlyKey and login to my proton mail. Now, however something has changed on Firefox that I get presented with two prompts to touch my usb key, but the key itself doesn't respond to the second prompt and login fails.

I first get this prompt as before. I select 'Authenticate' and would be presented with the second picture. Since my key is not expecting to be touched, nothing happens when I touch it and login fails with the message displayed in the last picture.

I had to refresh Firefox. When I redesigned my toolbar, I moved the "Bookmarks Toolbar" icon to the toolbar. The Bookmarks toolbar is still empty, and I can't find the "Bookmarks Toolbar" icon anywhere. I reopened the toolbar editor, but the "Bookmarks Toolbar" icon is nowhere to be found. How do I find the icon so I can put it in the Bookmarks Toolbar, where I distinctly remember dragging it?

I have installed FF on my new laptop and successfully signed in with my email and password. Based on this success, I have reinstalled FF on my desktop where sign in stopped working a year ago. And it still does not work, it keeps asking for master password. I cannot remove the account. The correct password, that works on the laptop fails to work on the desktop. Refreshing FF keeps one thing: the account. FF keeps bugging me about the master password on the desktop. And it does not accept the correct password.

This entire password handling is a great mess on FF.

What to do?

This has been going on for a week or two. I'm running Windows 11 and Firefox 123.0.1. Specific links inside a health plan web site will not download but using Chrome or Edge they do download successfully. I'm also using Bitdefender. Other links inside the site do allow pdf downloads on Fireffox. I've reviewed the information available through this discussion site but cannot find something that applies. I allow tried backing up to version 122 but that did not help and the Create a New Profile requirement was a big deterrent. When attempting the download, I do get a swirly download icon specific to the web site that lasts about a second and then vanishes with the download folder for Firefox showing no download. Thanks for anyone's ideas on this.

Hi there,

I've been having an issue lately where random text I've written is being inserted into other areas of my paragraphs in online text blocks. This mainly happens when I hop between paragraphs and try to edit content.

IE: If I wrote this statement and went back to correct something above, this sentence would "somehow" get added into the spot where I'm editing. It makes NO sense and is only happening within Firefox. Is there a way to fix it? I've noticed this happening on both Facebook and Indeed now too...so, I think it could be more of an issue with Firefox than certain sites.

The image is an example of the text being added in and reinserted. Thanks in advance for the help!

My Lenovo crashed we are getting ready to reinstall Windows and we have tried all the options to find the Hidden File in Notepad recovery. Our last step is to see if it will copy the drive and makeup a backup of the C drive and still keep the files. If not then I have lost my Lenovo bookmarks.

I am on my old HP Desktop and the bookmarks are older on that one as I have used the Lenovo for the last two years.

Both the Lenovo and the HP have the Sync option on. The last time the Lenovo was Synced was Feb 24 I think it was. I thought we could sync the Lenovo to the HP but that doesn't work. We have enough copies of the data from the HP and can reinstall those if need be.

We took FF off the computer and reinstalled like it was a new machine and was looking to see if we would sync with the Lenovo, but somehow it synced with some version and pulled up the Old HP info.

Questions: 1 - Is the anyway to find the file in the CMD Notepad version when you can't get a search or look for hidden files option. 2 - Is there any way to get the accounts to sync with the Lenovo if there is even a backup? 3 - Any other help or suggestions would be helpful!

Thank you sooo much!!

Steve

I have pinned various shortcuts in the New tab to link to websites I frequently use. I use two different laptops and both are configured the same. However the New tab randomly clears the pinned shortcuts. I have attached two screenshots illustrating the changes.

I'm not aware of anything I do that caused the shortcuts to be deleted. When they are pinned I think they should be there permanently.

I know you're meant to use up all of your ram, but I typically have other apps pen to multitask.

Hey!

So since yesterday I can't use my hotmail/outlook anymore!

I can still use it on other browsers & I can just surf the web just fine. But outlook? Nope. Reading messages work, but they still appear as unread when I go back to my inbox. I can't send an email, cant save drafts or do anything.

Pretty frustrating. What can I do? I updated the browser again, rebooted pc & I also tried deleting cookies

Hi.

Ever since I upgraded to version 123.0.1, I am constantly getting slowness on websites stuck in "Performing a TLS handshake..." Eventually the websites load, but it's frustrating. I have read about the various solutions and have tried the following: Disabled IPV6 Refreshed Firefox Reloaded Firefox Disabled and removed all extensions Restart in safe mode Create new profile

This was not happening in version 122 and before. Microsoft Edge does not have this problem, but I prefer to use Firefox. I am running Windows 11 Pro. Any ideas?

Thanks
