Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

Hello there !!!

Today I had serious damage to my Mozilla Firefox. When I started up Firefox I realized that I lost all my opened tabs on all my (three) opened windows, although I had checked the box "Restore previous sessions" in the settings section.

I opened "settings" and I saw this box unchecked !!!!!

The unfortunate event of this failure is that I restarted Firefox and even worse I restarted the PC.

Now I wonder, after all these, if there is a way to restore all my lost TABs that, I believe, there are hidden somewhere...

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

I remember seeing somewhere that -moz-box-ordinal-group does not keep assigned values in userChrome if the value is changed after being set the first time. This certainly seems to be the case -

With the following I had temporarily set the value to '1' but then set it back to '2' - it no longer works.

#clearDownloadsButton {
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}

Am I missing something?

Hi,

during maintenance of my logins in my password manager I discovered that I still have the login data for a FireFox Sync account. I can login to that account and see my settings, but I actually want to delete the account completely. The problem: The mail address associated with that account does not exist anymore (changed the company). When trying to delete the account (or when trying to add a seconday mail address), Firefox Sync prompts me to enter a verification code that was sent by mail.

I'll never receive that code, as that original mail adress does not exist anymore.

How can I delete that FS Sync account?

Thanks, Frank

I've got a new computer I am setting up from scratch, and though I have set FF to sync settings, I'm still having to customize a lot. My bookmarks toolbar is crowded again with icons and I'd like those to go away. I don't mind other icons staying around on the tabs--that does help me navigate faster. I had this set up before, but lost the setting when I refreshed Firefox.

Firefox just updated itself to 93.0 and now suddenly I have a big black border around the searchbar when it is focused. The userchrome "#searchbar { border: none !important; }" gets rid of the white border when the searchbar is not focused, but (just a stab in the dark) the userchrome "#searchbar[focused="true"] { border: none !important; }" does nothing when it is focused. How can I get rid of it? (It can be seen in the right-hand part of the attached image.)

FF 93 arrived last night and now my setting (from userChrome.css) that removes the cyan color of the urlbar doesn't work anymore:

  1. urlbar[focused="false"]:not([suppress-focus-border]) > #urlbar-background {
 border: none !important;

}

I tried a few different things but they were for older versions of FF and naturally they didn't work. I even added a line "border-color: none !important;" but that didn't work either.

So, any suggestions for version 93 of how to remove the cyan border (again) when I click on the urlbar?
