Hi, I have a weird problem, I have 3 systems on my device: windows(10), ubuntu and Arch lately when i was configuring Firefox on fresh arch install I was annoyed that I needed to re-login to every single s...t again. So I thought "Why can I just share the same FF profile between systems" Long story short it didn't work on Arch. I was forced to compile FF from source and now it works... but when I'm logged in on Ubuntu and trying to launch FF from GNU I always see this error. it's working when i point out to profile from the command line with "-p <dir>". but even then when I go to about:profiles and click "launch in new browser" it's still pooping with this error. So Am I doing something wrong or it is just impossible to do this seamlessly? is there a better(correct?) way to achieve the same functionality?

thanks for reading, ill humbly take any advice.

EDIT: I have copied the profile's folder to a separate partition which is auto mounted tried it on Ubuntu (at this time it had been working just fine) and after using it on Arch when I was back on Ubuntu it was displaying this error

Is there a way to deliberately disable any and all refresh shortcuts and buttons when a safety net shows up, so my buttery fingers don't ruin my day to it's absolute maximum?

I want safety nets to be deliberately annoying.

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?

Hi,

This is for https://outlook.live.com where I cannot access my full list of folders. I am using Firefox on Linux (in Fedora 34) and my scrolling feature hasn't been working for a few days now. When I search for an email in one of the inaccessible folders, the folder does appear.

As an idea... I added https://outlook.live.com to the pop-up exemptions, no luck.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Many thanks!

I am suddenly getting the following error message: "We recommend you use a different browser or disable the “EasyList Cookie” filter from your “Content Filtering” settings (found under “Settings” -> “Shields” in the Brave Browser)." Firefox is now unusable. I have searched "Settings" and can find nothing about "Content Filtering," "Shields," or "Brave Browser." Can you tell me what is going on here?

There are questions about organizing the process of overseeing extensions.

It’s very strange when you see the “Recommended” extension, and at the same time you continue to see negative reviews, fresh ones. But another thing is offensive: the review submission form does not have feedback. I would like to receive a more detailed answer and user recommendations.

Let’s say a user writes that the design of the extension is not intuitive, that he lost information because of this extension and wasted a lot of time. And this is not consistent with the "Recommended" criteria. Causes dissonance.

Maybe it’s worth expanding the possibility of interactive interaction with reviews, with clients among themselves. Maybe it’s worth expanding the support base for these extensions? Link the application version to reviews to avoid misunderstandings?

I have firefox on both of my linux Ubuntu22.04 machines. As of yesterday, that little rounded arrow in the toolbar disappeared. I still have the forward and backward arrows and the home icon, but the refresh button is gone. It is still there on my other computer. Both have version 120.0.1 on them. Makes no sense to me.

I signed into Firefox on a lab computer that has too little storage space to install plugins (<1MB storage space left.)

Naturally, plugins did not install. I wanted to ensure that Firefox would not even attempt to install them in the future, so I set the browser not to sync add-ons.

I don't know whether what follows is because of that setting, or because I set it too late. In either case, my dozen or so plugins on my main computer have now all been uninstalled. I don't know the names of all the plugins I was using anymore.

1. Can I recover my automatically uninstalled plugins? 2. Can this bug be patched?

Bangirot says technical problems when I want to see my received bankgiro payments. Win10 with Firefox, I can't see payments on that machine for a month soon. I have reinstalled firefox now. Still same result. With Android phone and firefox it works, but without printer. With another browser on Win10 it works, but not with firefox. Swedbank internetbank or bankgirocentralen can't help me. They have not heard of such problems.

Internetbank works, but with their connection to bankgirot it says, tehnical problems. If I login to bankgirot directly, it says tehnical problems.

So far its only the combination with this machine and firefox that gives this result. I haven't tried with another machine yet.

I have used firefox very long time without any problems.

When I upload an image with Firefox, it typically shows a red tint. I've seen similar reports from decades ago so I disabled `gfx.color_management.mode` in `about:config`, but that didn't help, even after restarting the browser and the computer. I disabled a couple of related settings, but that also didn't help. What else could I try?

I can't find any way to group windows. Yes, "windows".

I have about three dozen windows open (yes, there are a lot of tabs in them), and not just at home. And it’s hard to quickly find your bearings when you need to switch to another task (workspace). It would be nice to at least change the color of the windows, depending on the type of work. But in the API API I don’t see the ability to define a window property where you can specify a group identifier, which can be used to restore the color after re-opening FireFox.

If FireFox had a built-in or its own reliable extension for organizing thematic work, a deferred workspace (without losing the contents of windows). Arc browser - they realized that what browsers have been denying for a decade is already overdue, and they will be able to take over the market.

I tried several extensions for saving, restoring and organizing workspaces, and came to a clear conclusion: only the built-in FireFox solution for restoring windows after a crash/opening is the only truly reliable solution. There is no trust in extensions that are not supervised by a good team of developers and testers; there is a guarantee that data will be lost in the near future.

It is possible that in recent years some expansions have been completed. I'd be glad to know about it if you point it out. But here a question arises on a separate topic: improving the mechanism for rating and testing extensions, recommended extensions program.
