Since I am unable to find any forum dedicated to add-ons I'll post my question here and hope for the best. How do I transfer my FVD Speed Dial cells in my old laptop (win 7) to Firefox in my new laptop (win 10). Please don't tell me I'm going to have to redo each one by hand. I did check the Export button on Speed Dial but it doesn't transfer the custom pictures. Is there an easier way to do this? Like maybe moving a specific file(s)? Thank you - Sharon D.

The Network tab in the Developer Tools can be activated only when a page is already open. We have an application that opens a document in a new window. I can enable network logging on the main page, but when I click to open the document nothing is displayed. To see the very start of the log for the document page, I'm too late, the Network tab is empty. I can reload the page, but that wouldn't be the real situation.

My questions: Is there an option to activate the Network log right from the start of a page? -or- Is there a way to have ONE big Network log, with all pages combined??

Thank you for an excellent browser!

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

Hi guys, as I have already tried this method found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/9341987 and didn't work, now I'm stucked, and I don't want to change Firefox to another browser. Any tips on how can I completely disable favicons? The method works very well on Windows but on Linux, doesn't. I have also to mention that I am on Manjaro, XFCE (if it helps) Thanks, stay safe!

Hi - I signed out of a different Firefox account and can't get back in, as the password I have isn't correct. If I change my password, I may lose my bookmarks, etc. I exported the bookmarks to html and also backed them up (json). If I change my password, will I be able to restore the bookmarks using one of those backups? I backed up "all bookmarks." Does that include the bookmarks toolbar and mobile bookmarks as well as the bookmarks menu and other bookmarks? Thank you in advance!

Currently on Firefox Version 85.0 (64-bit) using with Windows 10 Pro

Until recently (before Firefox updated versions) my cookies, cache and history, were automatically deleted on exit from Firefox with no problem. Now I can not delete them for some reason. Even when I try manually to "Clear Data" and also manually clear all History (all sub-menus checked to be cleared). When I restart and open an online newsletter, normally I have to sign in. I don NOT have passwords checked to be saved in FF options and never did. But now with the new version it just auto signs me into that website. I do NOT want my passwords saved/remembered, nor any of my other info, etc! It is really annoying and not secure if FF is now saving information we don't want it to! What is going on here? How do I resolve and get back the way I had it before the update? Please advise. Thanks in advance!

NOTE: I don't want to start from scratch by clearing out Firefox totally or messing with my profile. I have too much customization to start over from scratch. (That would be like asking somebody to reinstall Windows entirely when something minor goes haywire!)

Why are there Chrome .idb files in my Firefox 85 browser? I've never used Chrome browser and don't have Chrome installed. These idb files take up a large amount of space. Also when first downloaded 85 seemed pretty fast. Now, after a few days it is back to being pretty slow. Could this Chrome stuff be effecting my browser in an adverse way?

Hi. After a BSOD I have clean installed Windows 10 and Firefox on SSD. My data is on a separate HD including my profiles folders. Sadly the Firefox profile got overwritten with my Thunderbird profile - woops! So I am trying to restore from an old 2017 back up. Bookmarks have come through but I cannot get the logins and passwords to work. I have tried copying the following files into the profiles folder from the restored back up folder:

   logins.json
   key3.db
   Cert8
   prefs
   signon.sqlite

I have tried this with other older backups too I don't understand why the profile is being recognised (I have my old bookmarks back) but no the logins and passwords. Is there any way of testing whether they are corrupt? If all else fails, is there any other way of 'reading' the information in those files so I can manually enter them again in the new profile If you are wondering why I am going to a 2017 backup it is because my backup program decided to stop backing up my profiles after that date without my noticing nor asking my permission!! Grateful for any help

Hi

I have an issue.

I have used Firefox browser for over a year now and this had never happened.

When I zoomed with the touchpad it would always only zoom text and not the whole page. That's my preferred setting. From a few days now it has changed and now it is zooming the whole thing and not text only. I need to only zoom text for my work, as it is more convenient and comfortable. I tried uninstalling and installing the browser again and it hasn't helped. I checked this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/font-size-and-zoom-increase-size-of-web-pages and did what it suggested but nothing changes.

"How to only change the size of the text

Instead of changing the size of everything, you can just change the size of the text.

   Press the Alt key to temporarily bring up the traditional Firefox menus. On the menu at the top, click View, then go to Zoom.
   Select Zoom Text Only. This makes the controls only change the size of text; not images. "

That didn't do. My "Zoom Text Only" is already selected but then again, it is zooming the whole thing. I also tried it under the options to choose "Zoom Text Only" and it's still the same.

Can anyone please help me? Is this an issue with the browser or my computer?

Thank you so much in advance. I really need to get it back to how it was a few days ago.

I was using the beta update channel, but with the recent release, I downloaded and installed 85.0 instead of upgrading to the 86 beta. This seems to have worked fine, but About Firefox is still showing me as being on the beta update channel and asking me to upgrade to the 86 beta. How can I get on the release update channel so I can turn on automatic updates again?

Hello!

I have just installed the Simple Tab Groups add-on and moved it to tab bar (using the Customize menu), but unfortunately its icon remains black since it is an add-on, so it doesn't have a gray/white variant like the the native Firefox buttons. Since I use the default theme in Firefox my tab bar is black all the time (and I need/want to keep it that way) so what I'd like to do is just recolor the Simple Tab Groups add-on icon myself. I just have no idea where the icon data is stored and how I could do so.

Help is appreciated!
