When I follow the instructions for importing bookmarks.html nothing happens. I get to the Library window and select the import/export tab but nothing happens. So how, other than typing them all in, can I import and export my Bookmarks. I am using Linux Mint 20 newly installed. Previous was Linux Mint 19.3 and everything worked fine. All appears to be working OK. ................ Al

I am a student that use Firefox everywhere and for everything, but the only problem that I have ever had is this now, I was required to use Ubuntu linux for computer networks and I decided that I am going to use this OS for my entire course as my main OS, but problem is that I cannot see the videos from Echo360.co.uk which is a site that we use for our online lectures. Please fix this bug and don't make me install some trash (chr) in my pc :D

For quite some time now I've had keyword.enabled set to false in my about:config because I don't like having the address bar try to autocomplete or turn things into search, when I do a ctrl-l.

I do like that I am still able to use ctrl-k to do a search when I need to. This would place a ? at the start of the field and whatever I type gets sent to search.

In a recent upgrade, ctrl-k still places the ? at the start of the address bar but doesn't send things to search. Instead, it now behaves as if I did a ctrl-l and typed in a bad URL.

I'm on Firefox 80 (on Fedora 32) but I can't be exactly sure which upgrade brought this change in behavior.

Is there a way to get the old behavior back? ctrl-l to enter a URL, ctrl-k to search.

When I look at Firefox support from Preferences in Firefox, there is a section that states "Firefox Updates This is where you can check your update history or change update settings for Firefox." The problem is Firefox does not provide for any way to change update settings.

I'm tired of being in the middle of a search, or interacting with some web site,and suddenly Firefox says that "IT" will shut down to process the update. I don't want Firefox to decide when it will restart, that needs to be my choice, or be a part of a normal reboot. I don't like that Firefox considers me to be an utter fool and incapable of deciding when it's O.K. for my workflow to be interrupted.

So, please allow the user to decide when a Firefox update will be applied. Popup announcing the availability of an update with a clear option to restart now, or restart later.

Give your users some credit for being smart.

Thank you.

FF 66.x and prior allowed me to block all cookies, and then manage exceptions via an allowlist of websites. This no longer works in FF 80.x with its fancier 'Enhanced Tracking Protection.' Either they're all blocked, or are all let in :(. I reported my issue in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1662335. Thought I should raise the topic here as well to see if there're others who've observed the same.

Dears,

 Due to a mysterious reason, the password manager of firefox on my home PC does not want to keep in memory my login/pwd for a given site. I mean: this works well for other sites (as well a brother site of the problematic one, as well as the problematic site with the same version of firefox but on another PC). But, never mind.

As a workaround, I would like to be able to manually add a new login/pwd in the password manager. How to do this?

Best regards Christophe

For months I've been struggling with tabs crashing. It's been getting worse lately; sometimes an individual tab will crash and sometimes the whole browser will crash.

  • It seems to happen more frequently on what I think of as "modern" (dynamic and interactive) sites than on flatter web-pages, but mostly it's "random"; there aren't pages or kinds of pages that I've noticed it never happening on. In some cases a new tab will crash before I even enter an address.
  • It frequently, but not reliably, happens to the same page if I persist in trying to get it to load. That is to say, if I "restore" the tab, or re-open it right-away from the link, it will frequently crash again.
  • It seems to happen most often when a new tab or page is being loaded, or in response to something I do within a page, but even switching back to an existing tab will sometimes trigger it.
  • At this point whole-browser crashes are almost as common as tab-crashes.

I've been trying to get it fixed, obviously.

I'm running Firefox v80.0 on Pop!_OS (a ubuntu derivative) v20.04 LST. The machine is a System-76 laptop, about 18 months old with not hardware customization (and I don't think any interesting software customization).

Stuff I've tried:

  • Updating firefox: The problem has persisted across at least two new versions of firefox.
  • Updating flash: I don't have flash installed.
  • Update Linux: I've been keeping my system up-to-date. I think the problem has persisten since before I upgrated to v20 (from v19), but it's only gotten really bad in the past couple weeks.
  • Safe Mode: I tried safe mode for a couple days, and I was still getting crashes.
  • Disabling extensions: I've tried disabling different combinations of extensions, including all of them, without effect.
  • Re-installing firefox: I completely un-installed firefox and removed the ~/.mozilla directory, then re-installed firefox from the package manager.
  • Checking my ram: The particular commands I tried to see if there was any problem with my ram were `memtester 8192 3` and `memtester 16000 10`; both of which reported not problems.
  • Turn off hardware accelleration: Neither turning off hardware accelleration nor disabling WebGL helped.

I've been submitting crash reports. Here are some recent ones:

When, I try to connect the wifi, wifi will connected after few hour automatically. It show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at mnit.ac.in. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

Try again later.
 Check your network connection.
 If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please give your valuable suggestion.

Hello, Hello,

If there is a principle of data protection for each of your members ..... it would be wise to learn French. Indeed, everyone speaks English. From where ? A first level of protection. If, at the "end of the line" the other does not understand anything about your speech.

Then it seems to me that if people feel safe on Mozilla, your market share will only grow.

Of the ? an elitist internet could emerge. There is nothing more annoying, stressful than feeling spied on by these cookies that want to make you visible, or sell you unnecessary stuff and show you endless advertisements.
 I hope to alert you to what is most precious:
Tranquility.

We are inundated with ads, static and other waves. Be the guarantors of a clean internet.

I am running Linux Mint Mate 18.3 on a fairly recent Dell i5 processor with 8 GB ram. When I try to log on to Sling TV, https://watch.sling.com/browse/my-tv, I get the message: "Sling TV is not supported on Ubuntu browsers" (see screen capture).

However, if I use Chrome or a couple of other browsers the site comes right up and plays any video I chose. I've tried this on several of our computers running various recent Linux Mint builds and get the same result. So the issue is apparently with Firefox, not Linux.

I've tried disabling any extensions that might block access (adblock, no script, ghostery, etc.) but that doesn't make any difference.

Firefox does work with most other streaming services - Netflix, Amazon, Google, etc. Widevine is installed. Any suggestions?

This has been an ongoing bug with FF; I found search results here that are a decade old! And it's a big bug! Here's why: Unit: Linux Mint 20-C on a Vivobook using FF 80.0.1 (64-bit) 1: about:preferences > Applications > mailto > Firefox 2: about:preferences > Startup > Restore previous session 3: I have no other browser on my laptop (which is where this occurred).

In testing by clicking an email link, it went into that new tab open loop (at a rate of about 2 tabs per second), because what is now obvious, is FF browser cannot be an email client; at least, not as it is, and has been. I tried to launch it in a variety of ways (e.g. private; restart with add-ons disabled), but no matter what, the loop would reopen the browser, and continue the loop. I had to restart my laptop in safe mode just to use it.

So, I uninstalled FF and reinstalled it, launched it, and again it immediately looped uncontrolled. So, I again booted in safe mode, uninstalled FF, deleted all FF associated folders on my laptop, then reinstalled it. Fixed! Wow, that's just about as buggy as a computer can get! As the only browser, this created a serious conundrum. Thankfully I'm on Linux so I could install another browser brand if need be.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows

I finally found this page, after the fact, but this issue should not be a problem to begin with: Bug! Filing a bug report has been done multiple times over the last decade, with no resolution, so why do it again? Logic dictates that If this bug cannot be fixed, just eliminate this as a choice in the next version. Using FF (synced) on 4 different devices, I had to check them all and undo that setting! Fair warning to all. And most will not be as determined to stay with FF; they'll uninstall it, quietly, and just use another browser. FYI
