On my convertible laptop (Windows 10 20H2) the on-screen keyboard doesn't open when clicking a text field with the keyboard flipped back and the tablet mode deactivated. In all other browsers I've tested the on-screen keyboard opens normally. Is there any workaround or plan to change this behaivour?

I cannot log into aa.com (American Airlines) with Firefox but Chrome works fine. Error message that their site is down for maintenance but it is up and working just fine with other browsers.

I have cleared cache, cookies, history, etc. HTTPS always is not enabled. Firefox is at the latest version. I have restarted the browser.

Any thoughts?

I was in my bookmarks in a folder named "Bonus" about to select a website and the folder just disappeared, while I was in it. I went to a synced browser on a different computer to recover the folder. It was there and I was about to copy it when IT disappeared. That folder has all of my working tools in it. How can I recover a folder not stored on my harddrive but was stored in my browser?

Doing this requires a password, which I have lost. Is there any way to overcome this? I cannot create a new password without knowing the old one. Sorry if I'm placing this question in the wrong place!

I am a developer. How do I get my website subdomain to be included in Firefox's automatic URL color-distinction for domains in the address bar?

Firefox currently has a URL color formatting scheme which greys-out all parts of the URL in the address bar except for the top-level domain and the 2nd-level domain (with some exceptions).

I am building a website where my organization-specific domain is NOT located on the 2nd-level domain, but rather on the 3rd-level domain.

I plan to use the domain "obb.ll.land". The "ll.land" part is basically a domain that the Liberland Government operates and from which it sells 3rd-level domains to members of the public. Think of "ll.land" as a temporary ccTLD for Liberland. (ICANN requires countries to be on the ISO-3166 list—which Liberland is not yet on—in order to register an official Internet ccTLD.) Therefore, any domain that is formatted as "[SUBDOMAIN].ll.land" should be presumed to be the foundational domain for a given organization that uses it.

Therefore, when a client sees a Liberlandic website, the domain should have the 3rd-level domain included in the black-text portion of Firefox's URL color formatting scheme. Otherwise the scheme would be misleading about the true nature of the website involved. For example, the 3rd-level domain of "https://www.floating.ll.land/" should be included in the black-text portion. Same with the 3rd-level domain of "https://register.ll.land/". However, as of this writing, no ".ll.land" site has the appropriate URL coloration to my knowledge.

How can I solve this problem? Is there something which developers like me should add to our websites individually, or will Mozilla be responsible for handling this matter?

Thank you all in advance! :)

A few months ago, Firefox would not start - I can't recall if I was 'doing something' with the browser, jin any case, I've been unsuccesful trying to get it to start.

After deleting the existing Firefox, downloading from Mozilla a new Firefox installer, and being frustrated because even the newly installed version would not start, I've been using another browser. BTW, I've used Firefox 64 bit on this latop for six years without a problem, until a few months ago.

But I want Firefox and tried again today, but the same problem exists.

The problem is that when I try to run Firefox, even after downloading a new version, I receive this message, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

That's it. Any help is appreciated

Programmatically edit browser history

Hi Firefox,

A site I visited recently moved to another URL. Is there a way to edit my browser history so I can still be able to keep track of which pages I have visited?

For example:

if I have visited

https://site-old.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-old.com/topic1/page2.html

I want my browser history to also contain

https://site-new.com/topic1/page1.html https://site-new.com/topic1/page2.html

So I can see that I have already visited the page1 and page2 on topic1 as the link color would be purple

Would I be able to script something in a developer console and achieve that? Or would I need to program a plugin?

thanks!

if I open the browser and in about:config set browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled to false

it works and disables the task list in the task bar.

if i edit the prefs.js I find that the following option

   user_pref("browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled", false);

if I set to true and start the browser again the task list is still hidden

   user_pref("browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled", true);

So the only way to get it back is to toggle it from about:config. So putting the task list back and editing the prefs.js to add

   user_pref("browser.taskbar.lists.tasks.enabled", false);

doesnt turn off the tasklist either

So the task list is not dependent on the prefs.js at all? It seems to only toggle when done from about:config...

in fact if I delete the prefs.js altogether and it still remembers the task bar setting. So where is this particular setting made in windows? Is it in registry or somewhere else in windows

After release 97 was installed, my PDF tax files no longer print correctly because an extra margin gets added top, left, right, and bottom. It is visible in the preview, and that's the way it prints. Nowhere can I find a margin adjustment. What is even stranger is that this only happens with "fillable" tax files which I downloaded from IRS and filled in with Firefox, some in release 96 and some in 97. In release 96 they printed correctly, but not in release 97. Do I need to use a different browser?

Hello,

When I try to log in to my one of my bank's secure website, firefox is not connecting. I can connect with chrome and edge. Firefox does connect with other bank and investment accounts websites. I am having the problem with this particular site. I had faced this problem with another website (non-banking, but secure), but it corrected itself in a few weeks.

I appreciate your help.

Thank you.

I do not know what to do.
