Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.

The check box 'Ask to save logins and passwords for web sites' keeps unchecking itself. It used to work fine. Now, it doesn't. And consequently, the sub-item 'Autofill logins and passwords' won't work either.

Every time I open the browser to login to a website that has the login details saved, nothing happens. I have to go into settings every time and re-check the main checkbox (i.e. 'Ask to save...') in order to also activate 'Autofill...'.

This is really frustrating and annoying. Why won't the box stay checked? Hope you can come up with an answer. Many thanks.

Please help recover my many passwords. Win7 had gotten corrupted; so I had a shop install Win10.

In prep, I did a backup with the SW bundled with my USB Seagate BackupPlus. On the same drive, I did a backup with Win7's backup tool. I exported bookmarks.html and bookmarks.json to the drive being upgraded.

The shop saved & restored ONLY the tree under users/ ... and likely, not all of that. Searching what was restored yields no match for "appdata", "prefs.js", etc

Worse, the backups I took with the Win7 and Seagate tools also seem to lack the files needed to restore my many site passwords. I'm hoping you can tell me how to recover those passwords.

Hello,

I am a Web Developer, fixing a website for my client. After the page is cached in Mozilla Firefox the layout breaks, when I clean the cache everything is back to normal. This issue is only present in Mozilla Firefox, I don't have that issue with Google Chrome.

Website URL: https://www.impeccablex.com/ Please see the screenshots attached, you can see the layout before and after.

I have tried almost everything that I could think of, don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance! Best Regards, Mario C.

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.

Certain emojis are no longer showing up for me while using Firefox. They will show up as as little boxes with numbers and letters instead of the actual emoji art. This doesn't happen with all of them, only certain ones. I have attached a few screenshots for reference.

Also, I have attempted to fix this issue by changing my default fonts, disabling addons, etc. Nothing seems to work. When I use Chrome, I have no issues seeing these emojis.

After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?
