I have consciously transitioned from Chrome to FF for Privacy reasons, but find myself with a problem now. When i close the browser i have set it to delete all the cookies. I want however to make exceptions for certain sites like i did with Chrome so that when i go back to LinkedIn or YouTube i don't have to go through the 2-step login process which is quite annoying if you have to do that multiple times per day as you can imagine. not having been able to find a definite answer on how to do that (yes, i did read multiple support articles) i turn to you to for help Is there a whitelist option to handle exceptions per domain for deleting cookies?

Hello, i saved many website pages using scrapbook and firefox mac v56, this addon seems to no longer exists , i was aware that it was not supported in firefox v.quantum but i had no idea it was taken down and woke up to this today.

the addon web-scrapbook seems dodgy, you have to create an account and use a cloud server contradicts the whole idea with scrapbook which was about saving webpages to read them offline.

can anyone ease advise on a solution to this?

After Firefox updated to 68.0 the other day, I have found myself being plagued by it making multiple processes in the Task Manager yet again. I have already tried the following:

1) Already tried about:config to change browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2/browser.tabs.remote.autostart from true to false. It is set, but absolutely nothing has changed.

2) I have tried going into Options>Performance and limiting the Content Process Limit to 1 instead of 4. The setting was saved, and yet it has not changed a thing.

3) Ending these processes only results in my tabs crashing, and reloading them only adds another Firefox process.

But as it turns out here: https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/17/going-forward-multi-process-cant-be-turned-off-anymore-in-firefox/ Firefox has removed the option to turn this off entirely after updating.

My computer can't handle having more than 1 Firefox process open and I want to disable multiple processes, otherwise everything will lag horribly. Is there any way I can permanently disable the multiple processes?

OK - enough space to comm.

I just built a Win 10 system (Pro x64) . In the process I built my standard batch file to backup my data files and Bookmarks to my removable HDD. I used the C:\Users\<your Windows login username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ path described in "Profiles - Where Firefox stores your bookmarks, passwords and other user data" article and found a series of files in a sub-folder identified as xbh4bkna.default-release\bookmarkbackups. So the associated line in the batch file reads "xcopy C:\Users\Oscar\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xbh4bk~1\bookma~1\*.* R:\BUs~1\Bookma~1\ /d /s". However, when I execute the batch file I get a "file not found" even through a directory search shows 6 daily files. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks.

From your help pages concerning file downloads 'Is Do this automatically for files like this from now on disabled? This can happen if the website's server incorrectly specifies the Internet Media type of the file. It also can happen if the server assigns "Content-Disposition: attachment" to the file. '

Then now apparently everyone who has .txt files set to be downloaded falls into one or the other of those two categories above, and every time I wish to download a .txt I have to go through this rigmarole to get it to download, and every time making such downloads automatic is disabled.

I want .txt files to download automatically, as they used to do. Firefox is behaving as if I am only ever going to download .txt files from this one site. The fact that one particular site may not be fulfilling every pettifogging detail of html protocol is NOT a valid reason for firefox to disable automatic downloads of .txt files from every web site.

Firefox will not play any type of audio. There's no indication of audio being played in Firefox in the soundmixer either. Audio works perfectly fine in all other applications. Steps I've already taken to try and solve the issue:

- Reinstall audio drivers - Remove cache, cookies and browser history - Refresh Firefox (remove addons / reset settings) - Reinstall Firefox - Rebooting system in between those steps

I've made sure my audio devise is set as default obviously.

I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

The Bookmarks toolbar order of links as to how they appeared as I had on my Windows 10 computer Firefox changed a few days ago from what I had long had, and now when I try to put in back in order I want, it keeps changing as well. I have Firefox version 68.0.1 on the WIN 10 device. Only other thing I've done in past few days is set up a new iPad from my old iPad, and I have/had Firefox on the iPad too. Is that iOS device somehow taking over my WIN 10 Firefox version? Can I recover the order I had? Can I make the WIN 10 version the master?

I have recently upgraded to mint 19.2 by reinstalling the operating system. Everything seems OK except for firefox and thunderbird mail. Neither of these will start from either the menu or a desktop shortcut. All that happens is the small loading icon appears if i hover over the bottom panel for a short while then dissapears. There doesn't seem to be any crash reports in either the .mozilla or the .thunderbird folders. However, they will start with no problem from a terminal window.

Can anyone give me a clue as to how to sort this?

Hello, title states the issue. I have checked the sound mixer in windows and Firefox is not muted. I have uninstalled Realtek Media Codecs (no sound on the same video with or without). I have CCCP codec pack installed but am unsure if that works with Firefox. FireFox is up to date I have tried disabling uBlock Origin and the other plugin Imagus and still the same result. This is a new PC with a 3900X cpu and have had this issue since installation Looking at the "stats for nerds" the video that has no sound playback is using the same codec as the one that plays sound. This video has no sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agZ0xISi40E This video has sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O37yJBFRrfg
