CentOS Linux finally upgraded FF 68esr to FF 82esr. Of course this had to break something. For years I have had a bookmark to "about:config?filter=signon.rememberSignoabout:config?filter=signon.rememberSignons" This allowed me to easily toggle on or off the prompt for my master password when I browsed a site for which I had stored credentials. This bookmark no longer works. It takes me to the generic about:config page but does not fill in the setting which I am looking for. Is there a way to fix this?

I used to have some sort of addon or other feature which allowed me to only unlock my saved credentials when I wanted to logon to a site. When that broke or went away I found the about:config setting and created a bookmark to it. Being prompted to unlock my stored credentials every time I hit a site for which I have credentials is very annoying. Leaving my credentials file unlocked is a security concern.

Any advice would be appreciated.

TIA,

Ken

Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.

I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

Some people recommended here using Zotero in order to keep the functionality of the "Description" field in bookmarks which was taken away after v. 62. Unfortunately a) There is zero information here on actually using it and achieving any sort of acceptable results re: bookmarks, and b) It's complicated and it doesn't even import the bookmarks file.

I installed Zotero v 5. Have to also install Zotero for Firefox extension. This is hidden in documentation (one or the other does basically nothing, have to install both). I tried to import FF bookmarks.html, it proceeded to use 50% of CPU resources, memory used by the program went up to 800 MB, and after 15 minutes the import bar was at 0%. I tried to import the bookmarks.json file, it doesn't support it.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

I have reinstalled my Debian, keeping of course my `/home`. New Firefox version is `68.12.0esr`. A new profile has been created, but I need the old one which I can set as default in the profile manager at the url `about:profiles`, but Firefox tells me "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history.....". So, it seems I need to install the same version of Firefox I had before, but I don't know which one it was, and I would like to avoid to make many trials.

Is there a mean to know which Firefox version is associated to a given profile?

Please Quit The Constant Update Windows until the newer Firefox versions actually work for W7!!!! Remember , W7 computers are not able to get the updates for make whatever is making all site buttons and switches disapprear. To new Firefox is also like Malware, very time consuming to uninstall, and I only can go to the latest full version I had saved. I have been a loyal user and contributer since the beginning, so Please Make Forefox Polite Again!

hello,

since last Update in Windows 10 Enterprise to Build 20231.1000 i get a 'Blue Stop Screen', when i try to move the Mouse Cursor to the MenuBar ONLY of Nightly or Firefox.

I have the same Error on Nightly AND Firefox, i have restart the Browsers with disabled Add-Ons, i have reset the Browsers, deinstalled and new installed, i have try it with older Versions, but every time, when i come with the Cursor to the MenuBar, Windows stop.

I Know, that the showed Error 'APC_index_Mismatch win32kfull.sys' is a Windows Error, but this Error comes only with Firefox and Nightly, but on no other Software and Programs. I disabled all not neccessary Services, i start with normal Mode, nothing works. i deinstalled a lot of drivers and next try: no Help, same Error.

Also i tried WaterFox, and funnily, there is NO problem or stopping...

Somebody with same problem, somebody know the answer?

Hi,

I had asked already this question and it didn't get any answer. It is pretty annoying so I will post it again.

When I search in the address bar ONE word and tap enter Firefox tries to go to this page (without the .com) it takes a while and eventually shows the google results.

It is very tedious

I have to select the search option in the drop down menu.

Also no search recomendations

Attached a screenshot

What can I do to search directly?

thanks

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

Mozilla Firefox update display

I am using the older version of Mozilla Firefox and do not want to download a new version at the moment. Up to now the Firefox settings offered the choice to 1. " Install updates automatically (recommended)", 2. "check for updates, but ask before installation", and 3. "do not check for updates".

Currently, the third option "do not check for updates" is no longer displayed in the Firefox browser window, and each time Firefox is opened, an update display opens in the upper right corner, which does not close automatically, and it is necessary to close this update display manually.

It should be up to me as a Firefox user to decide if and when I want to update Firefox. It should also be possible to choose whether or not the update display should continue to be shown when Firefox is opened.

When I view the blitzortung.org (live lightning map) website I do not hear any sounds associated with the lightning strikes. The normal sound is a very short duration "click". The sound is present when using other browsers but I really hate using Chromium (don't like Google). I am running Debian Linus 10 and I nominally use Firefox ESR. I have downloaded the regular Firefox and the problem occurs with Firefox 80 as well as with ESR 68.12.0.

By opening the PulseAudio mixer while the blitzortung site is opened I have observed that there is a brief flash of the AudioIPC server that coincides with the lightning strike "clicks". My guess is that the AudioIPC server response time is the issue.

Is there any way to get around this issue.

Sound works fine for every other web site.

I am attempting to perform a 2 steps verification.

Firefox is asking me: "Open your authentication app and enter the security code it provides." What "Authentication app"?? On my Mac? On my iPhone? I have been unable to figure out what Firefox means.

I have tried a number of those apps, but none of the codes was accepted (Authenticator, Google's Authenticator, iDnow).

Any suggestion will be greatly appreciated. /Boris D.
