Hello, 1. How do I bring history back -since mid March - after a windows system reset and laptop clean up recently? I signed on but I cannot find the prior history nor tabs closed. I use Windows 10. 2. Why when I open a new tab, the 'profile or account' icon does not show my picture, so as to indicate that I am signed on? Each time a new tab is opened, Mozzilla does not recognize me!! 3. When I click on the account icon on the second row, instead of taking me to my account, it takes me to settings, Synch. 4. I have selected the dark mode - from customisation - but the first two rows are in light blue-gray color same as the task bar of Windows 10. 5. I tied to use the take a screen shot function to send you a screen shot of the page that appears in dark except the top rows, but when I click the screen shot icon - that I have placed in the second top row - it does not activate-work. 6. From the Menu some info shows in Greek although my selected language is English. Is it possibly due to my location, under the profile, being Greece? should I change it? I am sure I ll come across more issues, as it feels as I am driving a new car since the change and all is annoying Thanks

I use Firefox version 103, the old version that is perfectly compatible with an extension I always use. I love this old version, and I don't want to update it to the new version. But the update reminder pops up many times everyday. it's so annoying. I used "about config" to turn it off (see photo 2); it works a bit, but the popup still there once daily after the configuration. I want to turn it off permanently. Is there any way to do it? Thank you very much!!

Dear Community,

After I tried to fix a slow browser in troubleshoot mode and reseted firefox, I get each time i start Firefox a success page with the option of restoring tabs.

I don't want that, I want my own startpage when i start Firefox, but i tried to get rid of it whiteout success. I enclosed a screenshot of the page i see everytime now.

I hope there is a solution for it to get my startpage back.

Thank you in advance,

Robert

Received an error message Platform version 124.0.2 not compatible min/max version >=124.01.... Solution on Mozilla was to refresh uninstall/ etc. and not remove data; that choice about no removing data didn't come up. now all my bookmarks are gone, and when i tried to restore backup, the latest was oct 2022 and didn't have but a few bookmarks. Can these be pulled from anywhere else?

Hi Team,

I have been using firefox for 2 years now at work, logged in to sync the passwords and bookmarks. To my knowledge it seemed to be working fine.

I reimaged my laptop last week and reinstalled firefox and logged into my account and it did not download any of my saved bookmarks and saved passwords.

I suspect it may have been caused by a partially failed initial install of Firefox which may have wiped the data from the account.

Does mozilla keep backups of the profile data? If they do, could my account be restored to the state it was in on Thursday 28 March 2024?

Thanks Socrates

Hello all. One of my 3 devices does not show up under the "connected devices" window. It's my Samsung A71 smartphone. It hasn't shown up for over 2 1/2 years. I have auto updates set up, I have sync set up, and I have checked settings. I don't know what else to check; I have been all over the place, checking. So, my question is this: how do I manually add it in? What happens after that, can I still sync it, but does that have to be manual, also? Much thanks.

A certain set of plaintext files are rendered in a weird way when opened in Firefox.

Some plaintext files are rendered "MS Gothic", which is the default monospace font for plaintext files in Japanese encoding. (Also, if I change font.name-list.monospace.ja to "monospace", the font changes).

However, the files are not in Japanese encoding, they do not contain a single character in Japanese encoding. Since the files are local, they have no HTTP headers to determine the encoding, so Firefox must have guessed the encoding somehow. How can I stop firefox from detecting those files as Japanese while they are not?

Also, I noticed that this issue happens only with long files. The shorter a file, the less likely it is that Firefox renders the file as if it had Japanese encoding.

Since I cannot reproduce the issue with smaller files and the files contain confidential information, I am unable to provide a minimal reproducer.

As a workaround, I could change font.name-list.monospace.ja, but this would change (potentially break) rendering of Japanese websites.

I'm using Firefox 124.0.1 on Windows 10, although this issue has been present for at least some months (at least 4 firefox releases).

The screenshot shows an excerpt where the text "C:\Temp\2024-" is partially rendered with Japanese glyphs and fully rendered with "MS Gothic" font which is hard to read with ASCII characters.

PS: I [censored] some of the information in the "Troubleshooting Information" field below.

New computer, new install, when trying to log in to my account to set up sync/migrate, Firefox claims the password is incorrect ... the same password I just used on this (old) computer to log in and ask this question!

I've had issues with this before, when I synced up my phone. Took several attempts to log it in.

Also, tried changing password, but for some reason it won't accept a new one? (That's different issue. Would prefer to log in with current password. at least)

Thanks!

I have moved to another password manager, and would like to completely remove my saved logins from my Firefox account and stop using the auto-fill, auto-suggest feature. However, no matter how many times I delete my passwords and Sync, they keep appearing in my Android Firefox app. I have cleared the app Storage and Cache, I have reinstalled it from scratch, but no matter what I do they reappear. My (also Synced) PC on which I deleted the passwords has not shown it again since I deleted them there.

I just want to completely delete all my logins in my Firefox account, permanently and across all my devices. How can I do this?

I'm having a problem logging into one of my banking sites. I talked to the bank tech support yesterday and did a password reset. There was nothing wrong with my old password. That worked yesterday but today I'm back to the same problem. It won't log me in.

I deleted cookies and cleared cache but still not logging me in. I tried another browser (Edge) and got right in. In Firefox, I use private mode to log into financial accounts but I also tried the regular browser and still won't let me in. This is the only account I have a login problem with. It did work after the password reset if that's a clue but I don't want to have to do that every day just to check my account.

Here is the site:

https://www3.citizensbankonline.com/efs/servlet/efs/login.jsp

I need a fix for this. It's very inconvenient and it is the only account I have a problem logging into with Firefox.

Thanks for the help.
