I set winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. Firefox doesn't appear in the task manager startup programs list. There is no link to firefox in the startup folder. Nevertheless, firefox runs itself when I log on. How can I make it stop?

Ever since evolving past the 70's version, "Print to PDF" from Firefox has had sporadic problems. I have now three times "upgraded" to various 80's series releases and though sometimes Print to PDF works, it more often fails. Once again i have "downgraded" to a 70's release, and i do not experience flaws.

I have posted at least twice of the issue, yet no one is able, or has done anything, about it. Fine. But to keep getting that annoying "New version available" notification is as irritating as malware, especially since "upgrading" will cause the system to malfunction, and the choice to spend time by your programmers to eliminate a safe internal method to disable this is very confusing; why was the decision made to eliminate the option to turn that annoyance off, creating an annoyance when the only time one would turn upgrades off would be when there was a malfunction with a release?

I did find the external registry fix, which, compared to pre early 60's releases having the setting, was a waste of my time to find, but more importantly, added an outside element of a breach of security. I do not understand the reasoning in the development team's thought process.

Is there any way to temporarily disable Firefox (and Thunderbird) update reminders? Mozilla seems to be updating its software so often that I'm getting too many reminders and it's interfering with my work flow. I understand the need to keep software up to date as often as possible but this has now got ridiculous, and I am on the verge of changing my default browser from Firefox to Safari, Chrome or Vivaldi. Please stop forcing every little tiny update onto your users!

Or is there some sneaky little way I haven't noticed under Preferences which already does enable me to do this?

Via "about:config" the "signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled" option is enabled. I tested it on a fresh install on another machine just now, and it does add the "..." button - however, the option to import and export from file are completely absent - only the options to import from other browsers are available.

SEE SCREENSHOT

The option you can see in the screenshot, that was available until this week apparently, is no longer available after turning it on. I rely on this feature at my Job, when we image machines with logins for our users.

I need this basic functionality of all web-browsers or we'll have to switch to another one. We do not allow the users to Sync their accounts with FireFox/Lockwise, as we do not want the passwords being taken to other locations/pc's where they have signed to Firefox.

Please help - Thank you.

Hello, I use Microsoft Teams daily and I recently switched to firefox. Everything is great so far except that when I try to login to teams I'm stuck in an endless loop and never succeed to login. I searched and found that it is a cookies issue and I should allow the following cookies:

   [*.]microsoft.com
   [*.]microsoftonline.com
   [*.]teams.skype.com
   [*.]teams.microsoft.com
   [*.]sfbassets.com
   [*.]skypeforbusiness.com

However, this format does not work with firefox and I tried placing a normal URL of each like : https://microsoft.com but it didn't work. So what is the format equivalent in firefox to these to whitelist these cookies

Because FireFox has been running so slowly, a few minutes ago I chose to Refresh FireFox. The web page said bookmarks and other things would be preserved, but after the refresh FireFox has no bookmarks. I have tried the Restore option under Import and Backups on the Library panel and chose the most recent listing (dated today), but FireFox says "Unable to process the backup file". It also can't process any other, earlier, entry listed.

Is there anything I can do to try to get my bookmarks back, or has FireFox totally hosed me?

Thanks,

Dears,

after upgrading Firefox from 52.9 to 78.5 (on Debian Linux), my profile is somehow broken, so I just created a new profile.

I could export my bookmarks and import in the new profile, but neither logins nor history.

How can I do that?

Thank you in advance!

When I try to sign in to Google services in Mozilla Firefox, I get redirected to University of Michigan's weblogin site/application. Even when I type gmail.com directly into the URL bar and press entire, I am redirected. The site I get redirected to is as follows, although I do not recommend following the link unless you know what you are doing:

https://weblogin.umich.edu/?cosign-shibboleth.umich.edu&https://shibboleth.umich.edu/idp/Authn/RemoteUser?conversation=e2s1

I have already tried going into Mozilla Firefox preferences and selecting Manage Data under the option to clear the cache and data. How do I remove the UMich's weblogin redirect?

I am trying to restore an old collection of bookmarks that I had accumulated. I ran a manual backup of data which included my Firefox folder. I've put off restoring the data, but now I have two separate sets of bookmarks--both important to me. I am a technically inclined person.

If I use the last of the old automated bookmark backup folders in my Firefox profile, will it delete all of my current bookmarks? If so, what is the best method of combining these two sets of bookmarks?

Merry Christmas,
