I entered my password accidentally into the username field on a webmail page. It keeps showing several entries I made in the past every time I log in. How do I get rid of these entries? I searched the subject and all the suggestions of deleting it in the dropdown box with SHIFT+DELETE or CTRL+DELETE don't work.

I also use Vivaldi browser and I have the same issue when logging in to webmail. The list of usernames is different from Firefox so I know the lists are tied to the particular browser. I was able to delete the entire list with Vivaldi and I logged in to webmail and auto-fill list is gone. Can't do the same in Firefox. Please help.

I also checked if it was issue with Windows, but it works fine when I tried downloading the same file in Chrome and Edge.

Hail all:

Now, Firefox has a very, VERY simple Bookmark Manager, that basically only allows to add, remove, and single-bookmark edit.

Now, I have for instance 6+K Youtube Links, which all, annoyingly, end with " - YouTube". I want to remove that idiocy, but to edit 6+K bookmarks, one by one?

Can you add a way to mass-edit bookmarks?

Also, can you add a "Explorer Tree Style" Bookmark manager, that shows all bookmarks in true Explorer style (As in:

All Bookmarks
--- Bookmarks Toolbar
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
------------- ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Bookmarks Menu
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
------------ SubFolder 1
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
------------ SubFolder 2
-----------------Bookmark 1
-----------------Bookmark 2
-----------------  ...
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...
--- Other Bookmarks
--------- Folder 1
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------Bookmark 3
-------------  ...
-------- Folder 2
-------------Bookmark 1
-------------Bookmark 2
-------------  ...

(without the "-" 's of course, this was my way to represent the folder and "bookmark file" system in tree form), with an option to see doubles in their respective folder/subfolder, with the normal editing functions? Since ... that would ultimately be darn helpful? Especially when implemented DIRECTLY into Firefox, so no additional tools are needed (add-ons) since these never have what I actually need.

I have a 700+ Bookmarks backup file, which says all. Far too many bookmarks to sift through, manually, without decent tools, thus the need to do it "one at a time".

Thank you very much.

For a bit over a week now, Firefox has been crashing and crashing the entire computer with it. I don't have issues with crashes or reboots in any other software and I've been using firefox for well over 15 years. I've tried disabling some plug-ins (Dark Reader, Simple Translate and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials), while still keeping uBlock as I consider it necessary (although any other ad/tracker-blocker will do). Really I use all these four plugins all the time. These sudden reboots don't happen with cpu load starting to go up or anything, it just turns off the computer and restarts it. It also only happens on certain websites like coinbase.com, twitter.com and I think it has happened on a swedish price comparison website, a once on a game sales listing website (G2A). It never happens right away, but after anything from 1 to 10 minutes of being on those sites.

It never crashes on youtube.com or bilibili.com, neither on nexusmods.com or mail.google.com or support.mozilla.org. I suspect it's limited to certain self-updating pages with lists or tickers in elements that update regularly, I first noticed it when i kept open a tab with the bitcoin course on coinbase.com over a week ago. I have recently gotten a newer very powerful graphics card, but I think this started before I installed it.

Any suggestions what to do about this?

So, I joined a couple porn sites recently, but I can't download anything from them at home (I can download from the same sites on my work PC without error). I try to download MP4 files and even compressed ZIP files (containing large number of photos). I right-click on the Download link and chose Save Link As. As the browser is opening a window for me to browse to where to save the file to, an error message pops up. "filename.mp4.part could not be read from the source file. Please contact the system administrator" The download is never placed in the download queue and if I browse (in File Explorer) to where I tried to save the file to, the file shows as 0 kb. I have experienced this in Microsoft Edge, too, so it may be computer-wide, such as antivirus blocking the downloads. I have Chrome but Chrome crashes about 5 mins after opening it. I will add that Firefox can save JPG picture files from the websites. I have tried going to Show All Download and clicking Clear Downloads, but as the downloads in question are not queueing, there is not much to clear there. I really don't believe this is an issue related to MP4 files as I can playback MP4 files on the sites. Windows 10 and latest Firefox version. Next troubleshooting steps for me are temporarily disable my antivirus and try saving to a different folder, preferably on the internal HDD. Normally, I save videos to an external USB HDD.

I am no longer able to copy and paste an article in its original format. I no longer can copy and paste any image, including copying and pasting screenshots, without them going into attachments. I know this is not a google issue because my wife uses chrome-which I do not like-and I can copy and paste articles and images accurately on chrome. I do not wish to use chrome, or upgrade to windows 11. I have tried refreshing firefox, uninstalling and re-installing to default settings, and nothing works to restore this ability to me in firefox.

I have tried this with the Troubleshooting option "Temporarily Disable Extensions" and the problem still occurs. Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) on Win10, Intel.

To reproduce:

Go to https://www.healthgrades.com/ . Search Carlene Bolen (any name?) in Tulsa, OK. Click on first result. Opens a new tab to https://www.healthgrades.com/providers/carlene-bolen-29brb. So far so good. Click on page. Hit PgDn 3 times, or scroll down quite a ways (to comments). Hit PgUp or attempt to scroll to top of page. Tab goes into infinite loop toggling between "X" and reload symbols on the NAV bar. Also page no longer renders properly and F12 debugger won't open. Firefox process for that Child tab uses 35% of processor, but doesn't show anything unusual in Firefox "Task Manager" process list. Must close both the child tab and the previous Healthgrades parent tab. Eventually the offending Firefox process exits and everything looks normal.

It is so annoying that when I open Firefox and type in what I am looking for that my typing goes right to the upper Top of the Page. I have tried to fix this problem but cannot seem to fix it. I want my typing to stay in the middle of the page, but my typing goes right to address bar. I started using Flashpeak, Slimjet browser for this reason. I just cannot get use to what Firefox has done with its browser. Firefox needs to fix this problem, a lot of us do not like it.
