Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],
      "installation_mode": "blocked"
    }
  }
}

Sincerely, Jonathan

Problem I had two versions of Firefox open. Window "A" (my primary window) had many open tabs. Window "B" had only three tabs open. Like a knucklehead I accidentally closed the wrong window, "A". Upon restarting only the "B" version was there.

Possible Solution Two days ago I cloned my "C" drive as a backup. Although the Profile folder on the backup will only have 90+% of the tabs - I can gratefully live with that. I just need to know what files to copy over from the backup drive Profile folder to the messed up drive's Profile folder. I am hoping it will be that easy and I can copy the tab files and not the entire Profile folder. Thanks.

Trying to create a short cut on the Windows Server 2019 desktop so the shortcut launches a website in Fire Fox without setting Fire Fox as the default web browser. I have tried several ways without success. The server is being used as the master server in a Citrix environment and the users are expecting a near Windows 10 experience in their VDI. Any help would be appreciated

Hello,

I cannot save my credit card number in Firefox, in Settings I don't even have the option to save them and the directions in the Firefox help don't work. #2 below there is no Forms and Autofill section in the settings let alone a credit card option.

  1. Click the menu button Button and select Settings.
  2. Click the Privacy & Security panel and scroll down to the Forms and Autofill section.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Autofill credit cards to turn it on, or uncheck the box to turn it off.

Any help to what's going on would be great.

Firefox 107 (64-bit) on Windows 11

https://mail.yahoo.com

When clicking on subject line in Firefox 107 page either fails to respond, will respond and render a white page, or respond and render the website chrome but not the content of the eMail.

Sometimes the page will render an email but all links, and scrolling are disable.

Only way to get page to display correctly is to press hot keys "ctrl+f5"

Have reset Firefox, attempted safe mode, and have cleared cache, happens on Windows 10, and Windows 11 (most recent service pack on each)

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony
