I have completely separate bookmarks and bookmark toolbars on my work PC and home PC. I do log in on my home PC as to not lose my personal bookmarks and passwords. I accidentally logged into Firefox at work and it merged my bookmarks from my home PC. I logged out of Firefox on the work PC and removed the bookmarks that were imported from my home PC profile. I then tried to make a new account with my work email and login to sync on my work PC but it always says primary email needed and I'm stuck. I did go to about:profiles and add a work profile but that doesn't help me. I need to make a Firefox profile on my work PC with my work email address but the primary email thing gets me. Is there a way to do this with my current work PC bookmarks not lost? Thanks

When you have a number of pinned tabs that you want to stay and during a session a blank window opens behind your current active session (or you open one for some reason and forget it is open), when you close your main session (with all the pinned tabs) and find the single open blank tab session - if you close that window the next time you open Firefox it does not open all your saved tabs and you don't have the option to "restore previous session" with all the tabs because it remembers the blank window session.

When ever I start Firefox it asks for the master password. I am not using sync. OS is Windows 11. On my laptop which is running the same OS it does not ask for the master password, even though they are both pointing to the same homepage of google.com

I have tried disabling the password and re-enable, that does not work. If there is another setting I haven't found it yet.

I am using Firefox version 100.0.1 (64-bit) and whenever I try to search in the search bar it will not provide me with any search results. I stays on the same page it was on before I hit enter and the address for that website reappears. If I click on the drop down menu and select a website, it will take me to that website, unless the website is Google.

I was using Ctrl+K on some websites to do things like site-specific search, task bars, and so forth, but recently Firefox started capturing it for focusing on the search/address bar (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly#w_search).

Is there a way to unbind `Ctrl+K` in Firefox?

Hi Firefox, thanks for a great browser.

Could you please help unlocking the account for [REDACTED BY MODERATOR]

I was busy logging in to Firefox (today's update) using my account and wished to store my login info, but the link upon login was a long useless address specific to the post-login screen and related to adding more devices. I opened a new tab but this was, apparently, a sticky login and the new tab was logged in as well. I logged out of that tab with the obvious (hindsight) effect of interrupting the previous tab/s.

Long story short, the immediate effect was the message in the subject line of this mail. Firefox locked my account and I need it unlocked.

Thanks for your trouble. Kind regards Jacques

I have tried to get help regarding the 2 problems that I feel are related. I use Norton as my security system, they say that Firefox is up to day. When I try to start Firefox it takes two or three times clicking on the icon before it stays open. Then when I need to open a new tab to go to a website that I have opened a hundred times, sometimes it will not even open the website and other times it will open but not let me sign in. On the sign in page to error this morning said: Bad Request - "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of request header field exceeds server limit."

It will often just say it can't start that page, try again.

The "try again" has been going on for awhile, the Bad Request is new. Please help me with this problem! It is beginning to get annoying.

Thanks for your help. [email and phone# removed from public view]

The 100 release of Firefox turned half of my desktop web site shortcut icons to PDF icons. Why? And why only some? I have some URL shortcuts that I have no control over the icon (no change icon selection under properties). How do I get these changed back, other than redoing all the changed ones? Thanks, Wayne
