I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

Hi - Suddenly, I am not able to view The Globe and Mail website from my Firefox browser. When I click a link, it goes to the page (i can see the URL is correct), but the screen is blank - no error message, nothing (image attached). If i copy and paste the URL directly from Firefox browser to another browser (have tried Chrome and Edge), the site comes up fine.

Help!

Hey y'all,

First, thanks for your attention. This has been driving me nuts over the last few weeks and if I can fix it I'd be very happy.

I switched to Firefox a few months ago and immediately set up the password manager and a bunch of bookmarks. Unfortunately, the next time I shut down my computer and restarted, Firefox said this browser was a new installation and had totally reset, with nothing saved.

This happened again a second time, so I set up a Firefox Account so I could have the settings saved to a profile rather than an installation.

Every time I restart the same thing happens: Firefox has a 'new installation' and none of my settings. The first time I logged in to my Firefox account to sync it, it worked. But I've just installed Catalina, previously using Mojave, and on that restart it happened again, but the Firefox account sync isn't doing anything. Now, every time I open up the browser, even if I haven't restarted the computer, it brings me to the same 'new installation' screen. When I log in to my Firefox account as prompted, none of my previous information syncs. Nothing happens at all after I get the "This Firefox is connected" screen.

I know the sync is at least somewhat connected because I can sync tabs from my phone to my computer.

Any ideas? I can re-do all of my passwords and bookmarks, but I don't want to bother if it isn't getting saved anywhere, or if I can't stop this factory reset whenever my computer shuts off.

I'm on a Macbook running Catalina 10.15 if that matters. Thanks!

Windows 10 gesture two finger swipe left and two finger swipe right doesn't work in Firefox. Two finger swipe left allows user to go history backward and two finger swipe right allows user to go history forward. These gestures work in Firefox if the user hold Alt key and preform the gestures. But most of the users don't like to hold Alt key and preform the gestures. Please fix that issue.

Oops! I must have clicked something by mistake. Suddenly email is hidden.

Start Firefox, see string of icons = top sites Click Mail.Yahoo icon (should see ATT.net email list) Left panel shows "Inbox" count 770; other entries also show counts. Clicking "Inbox" causes a thin blue line to appear above main panel, then vanish. Main panel shows just "Today" with no entries. Can compose and send email.

I'd certainly appreciate any help on this situation -- I'm in deep water here.

Hi!

I have a problem with styling the meter tag. Read this article but there is no mention of this. Styling the <meter> tag

I want the meter to have round edges so I tried putting border-radius on meter::-webkit-meter-optimum-value but it didn't work. Putting it on the meter::-moz-meter-bar gave me round edges on the filling (see the photo) but the background still has 90° edges.

Does anyone know how can those background edges be styled?

Hi community,

I found I cannot open any local directory, like "file:///home/". Firefox keeps loading but shows a blank page. Actually I found I cannot open PDFs by Firefox first, and then I found I cannot open any directory. I think these two issues are related.

Does anyone have some idea about this issue? OS: Manjaro Linux Firefox: 80.0.1

Thanks.

Hi,

I am trying to enable "Two-step Authentication" under the Manage Account page for my Firefox Account.

I've tried many authenticator / otp app on my android phone and my friend's android phone just to see, but none of them would work. It always says "Invalid two-step authentication code".

Has anyone been experiencing this? Does anyone have a lead on how to fix this?

Thank you!

Aside from the general usability issues caused by nags screens and constant prompts in software, for various specific reasons I need to disable the update nags that appear every day in Firefox.

This used to be possible with a simple reminders setting in Firefox, which the developers now appear to have removed.

How can this be done now?

Thanks.
