I need to transfer saved logins from Firefox on a soon to be retired laptop to Firefox on a new laptop. New laptop has a few logins created while setting it up than I copied manually knowing that when I import from the old laptop with many logins, the few on the new laptop will be overwritten. My problem is that Firefox can export logins into a logins.csv file but it seems can only import from a Microsoft browser. Is copying the key4.db and logins.json from the old to the new the only correct way to do this? The old laptops logins.json file has a recent date but the key4.db has a 2018 date even though some new logins were saved last month. Do I only need to copy the logins.json file?

I need to constantly jump between google search and wikipedia and i hate using the mouse. Normaly when you click the url bar you can type "@wikipedia" or "@google" to change the search engine to wiki, while typing anything else will prompt a google search. BUT when you use the shortcut "ctrl + e" or "ctrl + k" a box appears in front of the url bar with "Google", just like it would whe you typed "@google". This actually blocks "@wikipedia" from being registered making the whole feature almost useless and forcing me to invent workarounds to things that should be VERY simple in a browser. Any ideas how to fix this?

Hello,

So I have shortcuts configured in 3 rows that open on each new tab. These shortcuts contain my most used websites. However not all the shortcut squares are actually filles on each row. And that is how I want to keep it.

But during any browsing session I see that the rest of the shortcut squares are being filled from the current history of the browsing session from other websites.

Recently I had to reinstall Firefox and as far as I know I configured everything the same. But in my old install I managed to keep a fixed set of websites in those shortcut rows and NOTHING from the browsing history was added.

So, how do I configure the shortcuts that only the websites I add there manually stay there and NO other websites will be added from the browsing history?

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

Alternatively, for the shortcut ctrl + 0-9 to activate pinned tabs, and for the shortcut cmd + 0-9 unpinned tabs?

Hi, The program SEEMS to start but Firefox does not load one singel page. I get no errormessage but firefox does not even try to open pages.

Also, if I try to go into "settings" nothing happens (no errormessage, but settings does not open).

I have tried to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. Does not help.

If I try some other bowser everything works fine. The problem started after I did a total uninstallation of Office365 (does not need to be depending on it but it could be a connection).

Have searched the web without finding a solution and now I ask for help here, I really do want to keep using Firefox but currently it is impossible.

As of today, I can no longer log into my Express Scripts account on my PC using Firefox. I can log into virtually everything else using Firefox (i.e., my bank accounts, credit card accounts, brokerage accounts, etc.), but not Express Scripts. Previously, I had no problem with this login - over many, many years. And I find that I can log into Express Scripts easily using Edge, Chrome or (on my iPhone) Safari - so the problem would seems to be with Firefox. Specifically, when I try to log into Express Scripts using Firefox, a new small pop-up window arrives noting that, "This site is asking you to sign in." - the pop-up asks for user name and password to be typed into the pop-up, and provides a "sign in" and a "cancel" button - if the user name and password are inserted into the pop-up and "sign in" is clicked, the pop-up simply clears the user name and password - if "cancel" is clicked, the pop-up disappears, the original Express Scripts login window goes briefly to a "we'll be right with you" screen, then reverts back to the original login screen.

I have no problem using Chrome , Brave browser to access pages on my dev server. My front end (React) is on localhost 3000, server is localhost 3001. This used to work, just two weeks ago. I'm on FF v95.0.2.

I've tried everything, headers in my index.html, cleared cookies and cache, various network settings, ran it in troubleshooting mode, restarted FF. I have all cors request enable on the server.

Anything I might be missing ?

edit: Found my mistake, had another app opened on the same port , apologies.

For an unknown reason, Firefox Browser doesn't render portions of text on some pages, leaving invisible areas. I'm using the latest version (95.0.2) on Windows 10, but this was a problem in other recent versions. It only happens on some systems. No other browser I've tried has the same problem, so the issue is definitely Firefox-specific.

One example of a problematic page is arxiv.org, another one is Caltech News; see the attached screenshots for how Firefox renders these pages on my system.

Here's what I found out.

  1. The issue goes away if I disable the "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" font setting.
  2. The issue remains even if I disable/uninstall all add-ons.
  3. Refresh-install doesn't resolve the issue.
  4. After uninstalling and installing Firefox cleanly again, with old settings auto-imported (bookmarks, history, logins ...) and no add-ons present, the issue is not present at first. However, if I enable "Open previous windows and tabs" option to restore my session on startup, the issue reappears after I close and re-open Firefox a couple of times, and doesn't go away after that. It doesn't matter whether the problematic pages are included in the restored session or not; they will simply not show all text as expected if I visit them.
  5. Deleting the entire cache, cookies, site data and site settings doesn't help.
  6. Opening Firefox in Troubleshoot mode make the problem disappear, but it returns immediately when I leave the Troubleshoot mode.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Hey everyone,

I recently had to do a PC reset and thus lost all my files, settings and programs FF included. Upon reinstalling I don't have the option to save, view or sync credit card info. The whole section is missing from my settings.

I have already gone to about:config and enabled both of the autofill settings to true (as suggested in other Q&As) and restarted multiple times with no luck.

Any ideas why I would be missing this option?

Hello Firefox Support,

So recently I've been trying to google things, and it keeps sending my searches to Bing instead of Google, and much more recently I've been directed to a site called http://24infonews.live/ with a message always saying "Not Found". My only solution to get around this is actually going to google.com. If you could please help me with this it would be much appreciated.

Thanks for the help, Rowan.
