I am running with ubuntu 18.04

I know, this is an ongoing thing. I also understand that there are, possibly, other programs that might interfere with Firefox always Asking to save logins and passwords for websites. I even understand why other password programs might consider Firefox to be a danger to the security of said passwords.

I, however, want Thunderbird to ask to save regardless of what another program or whatever thinks. Given the number of thoughts on this one I suspect that, eventually, you will figure out a way to simply write it in stone no matter what another program thinks.

I notice that there are command line options. As far as I can tell I can't tell Firefox, when starting, to make sure the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is checked but could such a thing be possible? This would allow me to add a command line when I start firefox on startup. How about "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites = 1" or, say, add a line like that to the profile page? (that might even be better and then the profile file could become kindofa ini file for users.)

Thank you...............

Just a thought..............

Why does FF Sync move and unpin my Top sites?

From similar issues w/FF, I can only guess my problems w/losing settings is due to User.js file OR my use of Ublock Origin. Now I turn off Ublock once in a while as I've learned it may be causing FF to give me the "page not found/server" error page.

Seems to me by using Sync FF should be able to keep Tops sites where they should be and keep them pinned. Make no sense to me.

Anyhow, trying to read the How to fix preferences page but I gotta hang it up and get some sleep.


Thanks for any input. Hopefully the .js solution will work w/o hosing any Add-ons, etc.

"about:config" setting keeps resetting after every FF update

So in FF68.0 Mozilla devs have for some reason screwed such a basic thing as drag and drop from the browser into Windows file explorer. The best fix I was able to find to restore drag and drop proper functionality is to go into "about:config" page, find "browser.launcherProcess.enabled" setting and switch it to "false". The problem is, the setting in question just keeps resetting to "true" on its own after each and every browser update, so I had to manually change it back to "false" after FF69 update, FF70 update, FF71 update and FF72 update, basically 4 additional times already if not even more (I don't quite remember about XX.0.1 types of updates). It's frankly getting ridiculous and extremely annoying by that point. Is there a way to stop FF from screwing my "about:config" settings without my consent?

So basically, my extensions no longer show me anything in the dropdown. See the attached image.

- I am currently on firefox 60.6.1-esr (up to date on debian stable). - I tested this in a new profile (used the profile manager and create a blank test one. I installed noscript and the dropdown window appeared fine. - I reset my about:config by deleting my user.js and the dropdowns work again, however I lose my 1password login and other customizations I need.

What could be causing these not to render properly?
