On my personal laptop, I have the Multi-Account Containers extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/) running smoothly. I'm currently on a public desktop computer , and I enabled Firefox Sync, which did a good job for passwords, bookmarks, etc, but it didn't sync any of my container info for the Multi-Account Containers add-on. I see the default containers: Personal, Work, Bank, Shopping. On my personal laptop, I have about a dozen containers. What's wrong?

I had this problem 2 years ago and somebody helped me fix it as follows:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. (2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

HOWEVER --- I don't seem to have browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled in my new version 74.0. What happened to it? Does it have a new name now?

Note that I tried in Options / Preferences / Search

    I unchecked "Show search suggestions in location bar results

In Options / Preferences / Privacy

   I uncheck each of the boxes in the Location Bar section (History, Bookmarks, Open tabs).

Hi all

For security reasons, all new FF distributions are tested. When checking the distribution kit version 68.5.0esr (exe for x86 and x64) - the antivirus software "VirusTotal" detected Trojan.Inject.bcbj. FortiSandbox also scolded the distribution on x86 - saying that it deleted the file "% programfiles (x86)% \ google \ update \ 1.3.33.17 \ googlecrachhandler.exe" - its installation is undesirable in the ESR version.

New tab displays absolutely zero content, no top sites, no settings wheel. I went to "about:config" and I saw some false values under "browser.newtabpage". I changed them to true. See attached. Still that didn't work. Notice there is a curious "browser.newtabpage.blocked" string (mercy!)

Never had this problem before with any other version. I see some people had the same problem with v. 60.

Thank you for any suggestions.

I am developing some html and javascript applications. During testing I use the windows.alert box to show some innerHTML values. This worked fine, until after a while, the Alert box window size changes to a small window, showing only the horizontal slider.

I have restarted the browser, but that didn't change anything.

What can I do to have the full Alert window back?

Thanks for your help, Jan

Hi,

I have a bit of an odd one. I have Firefox installed and Debian OS. For the last two or three weeks I haven't been able to access netflix.com, returns "Server not found" only on the firefox browser. Trying another browser and I can get to the site without issue. Any other site I firefox can access without issue. Same issue in a Private window. I have two debian PC's, both do the same thing. Any other windows, android phone is ok ( using firefox ).

If I connect to my vpn provider on the problem PC's, firefox can access netflix.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks,

(sorry for my english) I have FF version 45 with places.sqlite (file size ~92mb). When FF had refreshed to version 60, file places.sqlite is auto converted to ~56mb, but it opens normaly in FF 60. When I open this (converted places.sqlite) in old FF45 i see empty history window. I think may be file places.sqlite has new format in FF60. How can I open this file in old FF45 browser or how can I convert it back to old ff45 sqlite format?

After migration my user directory to a different partition, I've lost all the items in my history menu and my places.sqlite file is no longer updating. However I can see in my address bar that all my regular suggestions and recommendations are still there, still auto-completing as they did before and when I visit a site, its visit count is properly bloated. I'm not sure if this is due to account sync but I've disconnected it now. How can I reconcile my files and repopulate my history menu so I can properly search it?

Typing the problem in the quote marks in the search box yields over 400 identical questions. So obviously this is a known problem with FF, and hopefully with Mozilla.

With me it happens on Facebook. Clicking "wait" basically does nothing, clicking "stop it" it basically stops the page from loading, so you can't post a message or have any interaction with the site whatsoever.

All along I'm watching the CPU at a constant 50%-60%, and memory for one tab of FB going up steadily from 400 MB to 1.2 GB (almost like a memory leak).

Now, my laptop has really limited specs, 3 GB RAM, Win 7, 10 years old. So I thought the laptop is probably to blame. Till I did the following experiment: Let's try Edge, with the exact same tabs, exact same sites.

So, one tab of the same FB page + one tab of Yahoo Mail -> FF: 60% of CPU, 1.5 GB of memory (and counting). Edge: 10%-15% of CPU, 500-600 MB of memory, and FB smooth as silk.

Any suggestions/solutions are welcome.

As title says, Firefox trying to connect to aus5.mozilla.org at startup and I cannot stop it from doing so.

I have seen the answer to other question here What is the purpose of Firefox connections to "aus5.mozilla.org" and "shavar.services.mozilla.com" which the selected answer is not correct.

I have changed both following settings to http://localhost

browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.gethashURL

browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.updateURL


the address in question is not in about:config since I have changed every instance of data that even remotely looks like a web ULR to localhost
