Methods to copy a single bookmark to multiple Firefox users

Hi,

We use a cloud-based ERP system. To access it, we use a bookmark for users to get to the initial login screen in Firefox. There has been a change in the login screen that will require us to use a different URL. We have about 75 PCs with many having multiple user profiles for Firefox that need the new URL.

I know how to quickly copy and paste the bookmark by remoting into a PC and then doing a copy/paste from the bookmarks toolbar on my PC to the bookmark toolbar on the remote PC.

I could also create a procedure for users to create their own bookmark but I think some users would find that a challenge.

I'd like to make this process more of a silent install but haven't figured out how to manage it.

We're currently all Windows 10 Pro using Firefox v101.0.1 64-bit.

Any suggestions?

Thanks.

A long time ago, I saw a list of open tabs in all windows, not just in one window, as it is now. (By the way, Google has added such a feature to Chrome. Clicking on the arrow allows us to see any open tab and navigate to it.) I am currently using Tab Manager to search for a tab. But the tab manager is not the best option because it is too slow to open and requires too many resources. Can I restore the old behavior to see tabs in all windows?

I would like Firefox to remember exceptions and store specific cookies that I need for the Microsoft authenticator, and other two-stage logins. Whatever setting I choose (untick delete cookiex and sitedata, assign websites to manage exceptions etc) upon closing Firefox everything is deleted, always. This means I can't use any authenticator to remember me when I want it to do so.

I used a third party cookie extension (Cookie AutoDelete) to whitelist some sites and it worked perfectly fine until an apparent recent update by Firefox. I am on Firefox 101.0.1 on Mac.

Any ideas?

This may be a duplicate complaint, as I got cut off before I could complete. With at least two banks I use, FireFox displays data-entry boxes for dates incorrectly - it truncates the last digit. Chrome (the gold standard?) displays correctly. My example images, first from Chrome, second from FireFox, seem to have survived the cut off.

When I ask WordPress to "preview in new tab," I get a File Not Found screen. (See uploaded image.) This works fine in Chrome (which I rarely use) but not in Firefox, so I'm thinking it might be a Firefox issue. The Tablet and Mobile previews work fine, but they don't require a new tab. I thought it might have to do with pop-ups, so I made my blog's URL an exception. That didn't help. Then I disabled the pop-up blocker altogether. That didn't help either. I've never had this problem before although I've been using both Firefox and WordPress for many years. I'm working on an old laptop (current one is kaput), but I think everything's up to date. Windows 10. Any idea what the problem might be? TIA for any help. This is driving me nuts!

This isn't a question about the "Multi-Account Containers" addons, I am pretty sure that there was a section called "Container tabs" in the privacy and security settings, and I could use containers without installing an addon some days ago.

I can still access by directly viewing this address

about:preferences#containers

But I can't find it in the settings, and this feature does no longer work.

So I went to read recent release notes from Firefox 100 to 101.0.1, but I didn't find any notes to say this feature has been disabled. Could this be an unexpected result of an update?

This question has to do with logging into web sites with an email and a password. Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit). Windows 10.

On many sites, when I click in the email field, a drop down list of email addresses appears from which I can make a selection using the mouse or up/down arrow keys. Some web sites have as few as two email addresses in the drop down list, others have many more. I recall that one site has about fifteen email addresses in the drop down list.

How can I remove a non-applicable email address from the drop down list?

How can I clear the drop down list of all email addresses?

Thanks.

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

I've just had my browsing interrupted with this recommendation to install an extension: https://torrent-protection.com/download-now/

I was viewing this page: https://www.eurogamer.net/with-the-new-ps-plus-premium-and-extra-sony-opts-for-the-car-boot-sale-approach-to-catalogue-gaming

I was taken out of the page without pressing anything and taken to this recommendation. In particular, it appears like an official Firefox message and security recommendation, with Firefox suggesting I should install this extension for my security. Sadly I don't have a screenshot but it's happened twice this morning already.

Is this really Firefox endorsed? Or are they pushing their extension with fake credentials? How is the page viewing interrupted this way and diverted automatically to another webpage?

Is there a way to always show the tab close button on the tabs? Or perhaps to show the button on hover of the tab? Chrome does this and I find that very helpful, in cases where I want to close a tab and do not want to re-open that page.

Some context: When you have many tabs open (I know, who does that?) and you want to close some of them, but do not want to select those tabs, currently you can right-click and scroll through the menu to the `Close Tab` option. This is slow and a bit clunky. The `Close Tab` menu option is buried in the bottom-middle of the list.

This issue is somewhat complicated by the fact that I use the excellent Auto-Tab Discard extension to discard/sleep tabs. (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) So when a tab is discarded, and you click on it, the tab reloads. Which is silly when you just want to close it.

Anyone aware of a way to always show the close-tab button, or show on hover?

Thanks!
