Need help configuring Firefox exceptions for Cookies and Other site Data so sites like the NY Times can remember me so I don't have to log-in to them multiple times per day.

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

Thanks

Tim

Hello Firefox community,

I have a website that is designed by GoDaddy which has sections blocked which I'm assuming is through a security feature in Firefox. If I use Chrome everything is fine, visible and functional. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue outside of switching browsers? Thanks!

TL;DR - I typed into my "search the web" bar on my start/default Firefox tab and was taken to Startpage.com - English. I never installed this.

Today, after checking email and finding several suspicious/scam emails (I NEVER click on links in emails) I was surprised to find that when I went to search for something using Firefox I was taken to Startpage.com - English (this is how it is listed in my preferences.

I have no idea how it was installed but I was surprised because of all the protections that Firefox offers.

Anyone had any experience with this?

Thank you,

I am creating a policies.json file to block all Add ons except ones specified specifically.

I have figured out how to do this for normal extensions, but I have run into issues when applying the same principle to themes. What am I doing wrong? Here is my sample code that works to allow the ublock add on, no problem, but it is not working to allow the matte-black-red theme:

{

 "policies": {
   "ExtensionSettings": {
     "*": {
       "blocked_install_message": "Error message to display",
       "install_sources": [
         "https://addons.mozilla.org/"
       ],
       "installation_mode": "blocked"
     },
     "uBlock0@raymondhill.net": {
       "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/ublock-origin/latest.xpi",
       "installation_mode": "allowed"
     },

I am NOT asking to remove content from the drop down - already done. I do not want the drop down to open - at all.

On a Mac the drop down interferes with the normal entry user interface. The normal text interface is: type to move to first/last character use the up/down arrow. The dropdown interferes with this standard behavior. The up/down arrow will not move the cursor to the first/last character in the url - until/ or unless the user hits <esc> to close the dropdown.

I have looked at the browser.urlbar preferences and do not see a setting that will change this behavior.

Is there a way to do this, so that url entry is doen entirely in the url bar - and not in the drop down. (and before this is discussed - I do Not want to have Any type ahead/lookup done on the urls entered, and have already disabled all of these options, so there is no need for the dropdown).

Thank you Mac OS X 10.13.6 FF 81.0

All of a sudden, pages requiring a password that I am always logged into won't load in Firefox (but are loading in Safari)

  • AOL freezes up part way through loading mail
  • The internal pages of A-Career-That-Soars.com won't load at all. Only the landing page loads and when I go to sign in, the fields for username and password don't appear. The internal pages load in Firefox on my older Macbook Air, so I know it's not a problem with the site.

Firefox is most recent version as of 1 October I use Adblock Plus I've used History>Clear Recent History>Everything to clear cache and cookies. I've run MalwayreBytes to check for a virus and none reported

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I use firefox on Mac OS 10.14.6. Every time I quit firefox (Stopping the program, not simply closing all windows) everything is reset to defaults. For all intents and purposes, it's as though I deleted and re-installed firefox every time I quit out of it. Bookmarks are removed, and any default bookmarks I removed are re-instated. It also opens up the set-up and privacy web pages that it does for the first time when you open it. None of the preference files are locked, it's set to remember history and I'm not permanently in private browsing, it's not even supposed to delete cookies. It's been like this since the moment I installed it; refreshing firefox changes nothing, uninstalling and reinstalling it also changes nothing. The only thing that stays the same is that my computer keeps firefox as my default browser.

Same Problem on 2 Macs (!) (PowerBook Pro with HighSierra + PowerBook Pro with Mojave). Both have latest Firefox 81.0.1 installed:

I moved Firefox App inside die App Folder (used it for years without problems put of another directory). When launching it again, I was informed by a promt window, that Firefox uses now a new default profile instead of my own profile. So I launched "about:profiles" and choosed my old profile as my standard profile again and restareted FF.

My Bookmarks and so on where restored as expected, but I recognized, that the feature to create screenshots was suddenly gone. On both Macs ! No Button in the bar and also no option with right mouse click. I tried also "about:config", but there all screenshot settings have been ok.

Screenshot feature is only missing in my profile. It works if I choose the new standard profile without all my bookmarks an so on, but this is no help to me.

What can I do to make the screenshot feature work with my profile again? Thanks for your help in advance!
