Hi Firefox In one of the updates I lost all my saved passwords. I responded "no" to access the saved passwords in one of the updates, afraid of giving some external hackers access to them, not knowing that I would lose them all. Is there any way to get the lost passwords back? Is there any files on my hard disc where these are stored? I hope that you can help me.... With Regards

Page action dots are missing even after I refreshed FF. Win 10 I believe refreshing FF is a bad solution because there is little notice it will wipe your settings out.

How can I open a new window when clinking a site in the dropdown from the address bar? Can I edit the sites in the address bar dropdown?

Thx, Tekkie

Hello there!

I noticed that I get bad internet speeds lately. The provider advertises it as 1 Gbit / 300 Mbit connection with 300 Mbit / 100 Mbit garanteed speeds. I measured download speeds below the garanteed speed with the Ookla speedtest site. It turns out that I get the bad speeds only when I use Firefox. When I try it with Chromium, or with the new Edge browser which is another Chromium based browser, I get speeds which I still not really satisfied with, but this is another story and these speeds are seem to be realistic, and these measurements show values above the garanteed speeds. Now the strange part is, I also get the same bad speeds with Chromium based browser while Firefox is running! What is even more confusing, let say I run a test on both Chromium and Edge with normal speeds, then I launch Firefox for a test I get roughly the same numbers. Now if I leave Firefox open and I run tests on the other browser speeds start to drop and show the usual bad results. Then I run the test on FF and I get the same bad result. Then I close FF and I get the normal speeds on the other browsers. I took around 30 screenshots of these tests and uploaded it onto my google photos. I put the link above:

link text

I'm really confused and I have no idea if it is Firefox or a Windows thing, but I also run these tests on Firefox developer version, and it behaved the same way.

Don't hold your thoughts back, if you have any idea about what is going on, or perhaps you know the answer to these issues!

Since Firefox 89 (maybe one or two releases before) *.localhost sites are not accessible, but those sites are available through other browsers or tools (Postman, Chrome, and Edge). Localhost is an Nginx server mounted on WSL2, so it’s IP does not correspond to 127.0.0.1 which is what Firefox thinks (about:networking#dnslookuptool).

There is no Proxy enabled. I also deleted the site settings on Firefox, disabled IPv6 and prefetch with no result.

Я использую портативную версию Firefox. До последнего обновления всё работало хорошо. Но на этот раз я не могу использовать свой старый профиль на новом Firefox. Это делает Firefox для меня совершенно бесполезным. Я всё ещё надеюсь, что этот баг будет исправлен, и будет найден способ использовать старый профиль на новом Firefox.

So Firefox suddenly and without asking just changed its look into something absolutely... No words can describe level of my disgust, so I wont fill this post by angry ranting.

Is there a way to get the old look back? (preferably without any downloads needed, cos at remote desktops that is not always an option)

Please, don't force me to use Chrome. I hate that browser, but they at least had decency to create skin, which makes it look like Firefox. The normal one, not the new diarrhea all over the screen one.

Opening a new tab shows the default page, which includes web search of default search engine. (In my case Google).

This is the same as it was. HOWEVER, I can't type within the Google Box on the page. Typing there instantly reverts to typing in the address bar.

While the result is the same, a search directed to Google. The implementation is exceedingly annoying!!! Don't have an input box which can't have anything inputted to it!

I wouldn't be surprised if this is a simple HTML oversight, but please fix ASAP. Thank you.

I have been using Firefox with tabs right above the browser window, and below the address and bookmark bars, for a very long time. I don't want to stop now. But the hack I used with versions prior to 89 now puts the tabs at the bottom of the window and makes all but the current tab invisible.

Does anyone have userChrome.css code that works?
