Hi folks!

I have an issue with my Firefoxes, but I am not sure if it is a bug or a feature.

Whenever I click on a link inside an app, e-mail or whatever, Firefox opens up with the usual startpage in the background and the linked page in the front. Is that normal behaviour? I would rather have Firefox open 1 window with the link I clicked on and without an additional window for the generic Firefox startpage.

I am also using the Multi-Account container addon, but experiencing the same behavious without that addon.

Thanks for your insights :). Henning

Links from my site to other sites (but not to other pages in my site) always now gives a bad gateway signal. Using a new tab gets around it but it is proving irritating to visitors and must surely mean losing brownie points to the Google search bot.

Hi,

I was trying to use firefox primary password without knowing what it does :(. Well by the time i set the primary password in firefox i realise that it replaced all the saved login passwords of over 600 URLS with primary password.

I checked few articles where they have spoken about replacing logins-backup.json and key4.db file. In my case though i think this will not help because i had my syncing on, when i did primary password setting change. is there any method with which i can restore my previous passwords by creating new profile may be.

Just desperately need way with which i can restore the passwords else this will be really difficult for my work

Thanks Prasad

Dev tools: how to preserve layout of panels on the Network tab?

I'm running Firefox 85 on Mac OS Catalina.

When I open dev tools on the Network tab, the default view of the "details" panel is not very useful: it's stuck at the 40px height at the bottom.

So I drag it to be half screen height in order to be able to see the panel contents.

The problem is, when I restart the browser and open the dev tools again at the Network tab, my changes haven't been preserved, and the "details" panel is again at the useless 40px height.

How can I make Firefox to remember the layout of panels in the dev tools?

The Close, Minimize and Zoom buttons of Firefox window (and other Mozilla products) are wrongly aligned in Mac OS when the system locale is right-to-left (e.g. Arabic)

In Mac OS, when the locale is right-to-left, the window control buttons should appear in the top-right side of the window. In case of tabbed window it should show before tabs. That is not the case here in Mozilla products. They show to the left in a malformed way. Only the close button is clickable, the Minimize button is barely visible and the Zoom button is totally hidden off-canvas. (Please see attached screenshot).

Hi,

I've tried multiple times to clear the cache from Preferences by "Clearing Data" but the count still reads that there is cache. I made sure to refresh but that wasn't the issue. I also tried restarting firefox.

Next, I quit firefox, went to ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/ since I'm using a mac and I deleted the cache2 folder. I emptied the trash to boot. There were still files in the cache!

Currently, the cache is 535KB. In About:Cache, Disk cache reads 229 KiB and 11 entries. However, I can't see the entries when I click on "List Cache Entries."

This has never happened to me before. Please help me clear the cache!

Only today, I updated to 78.10.0esr. I don't know if that's the issue.

So I'm on mac. When I tried to open an svg with preview, I found this. I don't know what it is for but I just clicked on it. But then it lead me to a popup saying "Firefox downloaded this app (Updated.app) from an unknown date", is that any good? I clicked cancel because I thought it would crash or break my system or app.

Have upgraded to Firefox 88.0 on Mac. Have also recently cleared history, but have reinstated the web sites where I want my cookies retained.

In the past, I could quit Firefox and when I next boot it, my daily sites like Yahoo and Ebay do not require password log-in since I have "exempted" them from being cleared on the previous Firefox quit.

I do use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" - but this is where the exceptions should come into play.

Until just recently this all worked fine. Now it does not and am required to re-log in after a fresh boot.

Any suggestions? Thanks. - jr

When I try to print from Firefox 88 on my Mac Laptop running OSX 10.12.6 the new print preview window takes a very long time to load the preview before I can print. I could not find a work around.

I tried switching to the Classic print system via (print.tab_modal.enabled - False) Now I don't have the preview to deal with so I can print immediately like I used to. However, if I try to open a PDF in Preview from the Print Dialog window, it takes a very long time to load the preview which it did not do in earlier versions of Firefox.

I am surmising that one of the Firefox updates added the print preview function which doesn't work quite right on my Mac.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Andy

Hey, I cannot, for the life of me, get to a point where I can delete individual bookmarks. I have researched all avenues and fixes here on the forum, and NONE seem to help out. Sync is not on. I have tried removing the places.sqlite, rebooting Firefox, then putting the places file back into the profile.

Verifying integrity gives me this: > Task: checkIntegrity - Unable to check places.sqlite integrity: Error: Error(s) encountered during statement execution: > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

But I don't know how to remedy this "error".

I have tried to restore bookmarks, but that just erases ALL bookmarks, leaving the folders in place.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Thanks
