I often set my default search engine to Google. I save that setting. It works for a while but then every few days it resets to Yahoo. How can I get my default search engine to stay with the setting I give it?

Note: I'm on Mac OS and FF v 93.0

Thanks for any help.

When I click on the Firefox icon to open it, the opening page is minimized and I have click the maximize button twice to get it to open to a full page. I used to just click on the Firefox icon and it would open to a full page. I cannot figure out how to change this back. Please advise.

I can pin Firefox to my Taskbar and used to be able to pin shortcuts to that but all of a sudden I cannot pin shortcuts to that Firefox that it is sitting on the Taskbar. I drag them to the Firefox shortcut on the Taskbar and a message pops up “Pin to Firefox?” but when I right click on the Taskbar Firefox link there are only the original shortcuts that were there before this problem began. I have tried Uninstall & Reinstall but nothing works.

Hi,

I receive your emails on security (How to avoid wire fraud, spot spyware, smash spam and more) and my concern is holding all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise on my Windows devices which are synched. If someone or some process gains access to one of my PC's they would also I presume gain access to all my passwords. Is this true? If so, can I implement password access to my Firefox Lockwise passwords on Windows machines?

Thanks for your thoughts and hopefully reply.

best regards, Terry

Retrieving bookmarks from a Windows Image File of a machine I no longer have

Copying Firefox Bookmarks

I had a Windows 10 machine on which the motherboard died. I had the machine fully backed up in a WindowsImage file.

Then I bought a new machine of a different make that came with the same version of Windows 10 Professional as I had on my old machine. Unfortunately, the restore program will not restore the file to my new machine. So to retrieve my many useful Firefox bookmarks I opened a VHD (mounting the file onto a virtual drive) and attempted to copy the bookmarks across to the proper directory in the new machine.

My understanding is that they are kept in %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\

Overwriting everything in the new Profiles directory with everything in the Profile directory from my old machine does not work, and I cannot work out what to copy and where to copy it to as the directory structure and the folders it contains are very different on the two machines.

Does anybody know of a utility out there that will help me? All suggestions gratefully received.

Thank you,

NM

Logging on to my bank web site is no longer possible with Firefox. It used to be, so I assume the bank's computer security protocols have changed. However, I can log on with the Microsoft Explorer browser - works every time! Moreover, in the past, when I could still log on with Firefox, I could never "register my device" for the bank site; it always gave me an error message. With the Explorer browser, I can register my device, with no error messages. I have tried all the suggestions in the Firefox help section: erased remembered history, erased all history, erased all cookies, erased cookie profile files. Nothing works.

This is my error code: bp-b9b9c80e-b9ae-42f4-9dff-b2ee00211028

On certain websites, for example unsplash as described in the error code, Firefox always crashes. First the whole window including the menu bars will flash white and then it will crash... Opening in troubleshoot mode will lead to the same result.

Thank you if you can help me.

French expat in Asia I noticed that since the launch of this free website, Firefox 93.0 running with macOS Big Sur 11.6 is unable to connect properly with the French TV5MONDEplus website. Access to the site is entirely possible but the connection seems to stop as soon as you try to view the programs offered… This problem doesn't arise by using Chrome.

After test, I found the problem is the cache system, because when I enable disk cache or memory cache, the Recaptcha can't be loaded properly after refresh page unless do the force refresh by pressing the SHIFT key.

Can Firefox disable cache for Google Recaptcha related file(javascript, css, etc)?
