I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Since refreshing Firefox, my bookmarks have disappeard from the bookmarks toolbar, there's nothing there. But Bookmarks are correctly selected in 'view', and also in 'configure', and the list of all bookmarks shows my usual bookmarks located in the toolbar section. I have no idea what to do about this.

SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER for Google and Youtube

I am getting a certification issue when trying to visit 2 specific sites which are some of the most visited sites in the web: https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com

The error it shows when trying to visit these 2 pages, is SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER.

I have tried to troubleshoot it and follow the solutions recommended at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/error-codes-secure-websites#w_the-error-occurs-on-multiple-secure-sites

however none of the solutions described in this guide worked to solve my problem.

In that guide, one of the suggested solutions is to scan my system for any malware. I used the following: Windows Defender Maleware Bytes AntiMalware Karpersky TDSSkiller however the results are all clean.

In the guide, it suggested that I check the clock as well. The system clock however is synchronized.

Last, I have resetted Firefox Profile but this didnt fix the issue either.

I shall note that the issue appeared yesterday and so far nothing helped fixing it. Not even the system restarts.

The issue about visiting these two sites, is limited only to Firefox.

I can access https://www.google.com and https://www.youtube.com without problems using Google Chrome and the Opera Browser.

Also, Google Mail and Google Translate work fine on Firefox. These two sites can be accessed with Firefox without causing any SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER errors.

Since updating to Firefox 83 today, Firefox will not open my local webserver by name (anfield). I can ping the name of the server and it resolves fine. And the site opens correctly in Microsoft Edge. But Firefox just says 'Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at anfield.' Interestingly, I can open the website using it's IP address, but all my shortcuts to my development sites are on this webserver by name (anfield). Why is Firefox unable to resolve the name?

Just before I got the message We've upgraded Firefox in the background, causing me to have to close and reopen Firefox, Firefox , which I use to get mail from Outlook over my objections, dumped into the folder I had open at the time a folder called 'Mail'. Its contents are a huge number of files with the extension js, 25Mb worth. I have put this in the trash. But before I knew it was there I backed up my files on a second laptop. There the folder and its contents do not respond to -- do not allow-- the command to put in trash. The file names are grey so that they cannot even be selected to trash them. How do I get rid of this stuff? If I don't get rid of it, I daren't back up the files of that computer onto mine because I'd get it all back. So there is some urgency to the question. Sample file listed: Mail - Robert Thomas - Outlook_files/profilephotopicker_without-react_0497945b6204f57b88e6.js

I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) on Mac OS Big Sur 11.0.1.

Until recently, when I would click on a hyperlink within a pinned tab, it would open in a new tab. (To be sure, this is *without* pressing the Control key on the Mac, or without right clicking on the mouse --> open link in new tab option).

But now, hyperlinks inside pinned tabs open in the same window. This is a workflow nightmare because I am used to having links originating within my pinned Gmail window open in a new tab.

I have followed the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295, but this does not help.

Good Morning

Today I had to repair Firefox and after restarting, I felt a strange scrolling sensation, it was not the normal Firefox scrolling, I even thought I had openend the wrong browser...so I went check about:config , and found some values where changed as new default values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 200 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 50

I tought it was me the problem so I installed an older version of Firefox (80.0) in order to compare, and found a normal scrolling and those values:

general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMaxMS 400 general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS 200

I think this is a mistake from devs, if i wanted to have horrible scrolling, I could just use Edge instead of Firefox, could you please bring the original scrolling back to Firefox?

Thanks

Hello, is this the standard behavior for downloading the FF by using some different web browsers? I am talking still about the same version of 64bit FF for Win10 offline installer US but downloading this in different web browsers... The (final) downloaded file has exactly the same size of file but "slightly" different content - this is happening only when downloading FF. If I download different browser in various browsers then the size and content is exactly the same - but not in case of FF. Is it OK (some adjustemnt..) please or could it be virus?

Hi, I am using Firefox 83.0 64 bit (not sure if it has recently updated or not). I noticed today that my extensions were no longer visible in the top right corner, even though they were still installed. I tried to fix the problem by deleting/re-installing firefox several times but this did not seem to help. I have now found out that they disappear when I select "Never remember history" on the privacy page. They re-appear if I select Rember history from the drop down menu. Is this a bug or is there a way to fix this. Thanks
