When I hit cmd+l to select the URL bar, the first entry in the suggestion list is "Search with Amazon.com" with a pin icon to the left of it. I've searched all through the preferences and even about:config and any reference to Amazon is disabled. How can I get this to go away?

I guess, it's one of the most asked question. How can i move my profile and the cache location..... and most importand: Why is it not a nativ option in the preference? It's all about speed and security. I use uptodate betaversions on a mac. But that second part of my question is related to pc and mac.

Btw: I know about the cache. Adding the "browser.cache.disk.parent_directory" as a string and adding my location. But i don't know about a about:config setting to move my Profile too.

I posted this question yesterday. The feedback was provided by a 'robot', the e-mail took me down a very confusing rabbit hole. I cannot reply to a robot, so I need to post the same question again.

I believe at some point I selected the option in the title, by mistake, and Mozilla is unforgivingly stuck on that option and just won't let go. Is there any real support on Mozilla, or it just a patchwork of robots and nonsense lengthy feedback e-mails that make no sense at all? I can't even reply to a robot. Is this the real Mozilla support?

Let me know. Mozilla taunts this wonderful community, plenty of support, but a robot answers your question?? Really????

Hi,

I tried to remote control firefox with the Selenium WebDriver and Java fio testing purposes. This ended in some instances of crashed or otherwise leftover running instances of the geckodriver.

I restarted my computer (Win 10) and started Firefox (no remote software started this time).

And now, whenever I start Firefox, it says it is remotely controlled (Robot icon / Orange bar).

How can I start Firefox in un-controlled mode again (so that ie: I can login into google again)?

(Addons = none) Thanks for help.

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I was logging in, and was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them?

My bookmarks have been lost. I think they're gone forever. I really needed them for work. A certain person hacked into my 1password account. I know it's "impossible" but not if someone knows you and is determined and smart. Anyway, he changed the email associated with my account, but not the password. I had to restore my computer. I downloaded Firefox and was logging in. I was prompted to enter the "original" email. Huh? I tried various ways to access my account using the email I knew was the right one to no avail. I had a recovery key, but no place to enter it. I was told I'd be sent an email. No.

A different email worked. But my bookmarks are gone. Any ideas on how i can recover them? I really need the bookmarks. And why would they disappear if the password wasn't changed?

I hope I missed something - like a created a second account without realizing it. Thanks for your help.

On Firefox 82 on Ubuntu.

After dealing with the forced updates I manually disabled them, which takes a surprising amount of Googling since the setting was placed in about:config recently. However, I'm still being prompted to restart whenever an update is available.

If this can't be fixed, I'm done with Firefox - it's honestly something extremely basic and that the setting is hidden, and doesn't do anything. makes no sense.

Hi! Since about two month I have the problem, that firefox does not update automatically anymore. Every time a new version is available I get the message "Firefox can't update to the latest version" and I have to do full download. Searching the forum did not help solving the problem. Is there any way to determine what is preventing firefox from updating? Cheers Christian

Hi there, My Firefox updated to 82.0.3 and now the menus are waaay too short. The bookmarks menu is so short that I can't even view any bookmarks in the menu.

Everything about my setup is standard in every other way. I found a possible fix by changing the about:config settings and this hasn't worked. Nor has changing the Windows registry.

Is there a way to reset this or make the menus longer so I don't need to scroll down through them?

JesusHChrist, the rocket science spam detection on this board seems to be blocking my posts that contain a firefox and mozilla link. That's right, firefox and mozilla. So I don't know what to do about that except the stupid URL deformation below. So let me try to post again. At h t t p s : / / s u p p o r t . m o z i l l a . o r g / e n - U S / u s e r s / e d i t or h t t p s : / / a c c o u n t s . f i r e f o x . c o m / s e t t i n g s I see no way to change my email address. It appears that the only choice is to add a new account, and optionally delete the old one. I do not want that. I want to change the email address, and still see my old posts after logging in with the new one. Is that not permitted? The only setting I see is Secondary email address. I want to change the primary. Thank you kind helpers.

Dear Volunteer, Thank you for being a volunteer with Firefox ( I guess this is the same as Mozilla?). I have changed to Fire fox from Chrome. My add on Add On Auto Text Expander from Chrome I cannot get it working in Firefox. I have seen I can open the Add On Auto text Expander, but it doesn't have my allready made text expander information. Because my list is not so long I can do the exercise again in FireFox. But I would like to learn how it works. My list I have saves as an TXT in a download Isjon.

Kind regards,

Gert-Jan van der Struys

Good evening, I downloaded firefox developer and I must say that I was very amazed by the wonderful browser you have created, the only problem is that when I want to go to view the credentials, any person can view the password (I use a window login password) .

I ask you to enter if it is possible to verify (if it exists) to enter the login window password so as to have even more security!
