Guten Morgen,

meine Passwörter sind plötzlich weg, ich möchte keinen Brauser der die Passwörter vergisst. Warum passiert dies immer wieder?  

Es sollte eine sehr einfache Rückhohkung geben und nicht so ein umständliches Suchen nach den vorhandenen Passwörtern und der Rückholung!!!

Ich habe ein umfangreiche Internetseite von über 30 Domain etc. wie soll ich da die ganzen

Passwörter merken!!!

Es ist ein Unding, wenn Firefox plötzlich die Passwörter nicht anzeigt, so ist dies eine Stundenlange Arbeit!!!

Ich bin sehr unzufrieden mit Firefox

I have two bookmarks tagged with `tools` and `music`. When I write `tools music` in the browser bar, 4 Google search results appear, followed by one bookmark, the other is not shown at all.

Is there a way to specifically search by tags? Ideally I would like to have both bookmarks appear in front of my suggestions.

thank you.

On many websites lots of emoticons are shown in black and white, others in colour.

Supplemental Images all appear coloured, on Emoticons only 20% are coloured. This is what appears in Firefox Debugging tools:

Fonts Used DejaVu Sans

                        DejaVu Sans Bold Oblique 
                        Noto Color Emoji
                        Noto Color Emoji
The same page is shown with coloured emoticons in Google Chrome. Additionally, same emoticons are shown in colour when used in Mozilla Thunderbird. 

How can I set emoji in colour for Firefox?

I placed this issue in a different forum as well: https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-software-2/firefox-emoji-are-black-and-white-4175676403/

I just finished installing Ubuntu 20.04. When I started Firefox for the first time, it told me I was using an 'out of date' version and advised me to update. I clicked on OK to do the update and thought it strange when Firefox started that it didn't have my home page. I immediately went to check the settings (now Preferences) and saw that the Home page was gone. I suspected that something had been done with my Firefox settings and checked my Bookmarks only to find them all gone. I don't believe that Firefox development would be so crass / careless as to delete my Bookmarks in this fashion. How can I retrieve them ?

I've just switched to Firefox as Chrome keeps lagging. I'm running Fedora 31 and the latest version of Firefox 76.0.1.

When I use the 2 fingered scrolling and take my fingers off the touchpad, the page keeps scrolling until it slowly slows down and eventually stops or hits the end of the page. It doesn't then stop when I place my fingers back on the touchpad, so it just carries on regardless to another part of the page. It's ludicrous as it just goes past whatever I'm trying to look at! If I keep my fingers on the touchpad it stays put but as soon as I take them off, it's off on it's jollies again.

Is there anyway to disable this? I've unchecked smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. I've never had Firefox behave like this before on any Linux distro.

After using OWASP ZAProxy for the first time, the address bar is now orange and striped and there is a picture of a robot next to the padlock (see attached screenshot). I believe this is because ZAP uses selenium to control the browser, but for some reason it will not go back to normal.

I am on Linux Mint and am using Firefox 76.0

I have tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Restarting my computer
  • Resetting Firefox
  • Running `firefox --new-instance --ProfileManager`
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox
  • Deleting all Firefox files and reinstalling
  • Rewinding my entire computer using Timeshift

So far, nothing has worked.

I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
   browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps

Hi,

I've been looking for a way to force installed addons to update at launch, but haven't had much success. My real motivation behind this is to have a master profile, and use disposable copies for throwaway web browsing. I understand that private browsing mode provides something in that vein, but there are limitations in the way it has been implemented, and I would like to have an entirely separate preconfigured firefox instance for each usage.

Is there a way to do this, or to force install the most current version of an addon from the repositories and to initiate it from the command line?

Thanks,

-cb

I am suddenly being made to login to 'Firefox Sync' and it is asking me for a password. I have no idea whatever what that password might be. I've guessed a lot but no luck. I am permitted to reset the password for 'Firefox Sync' but if I do then Firefox Sync is threatening to destroy all my recorded passwords (is that what it is saying? I daren't ever try it in case they are all lost). I have no idea what most of these passwords are (they are random secure ones generated as once-off streams of characters) and if I do reset my password, I will lose everything. What can I do please? Why is it suddenly asking me for a password, please? I am very, very worried that I have lost everything. Have I missed something?

I must never use any of this security stuff again, I think: it's too dangerous. I will just have to to keep a copy of all my passwords in a file on my computer from now on away from Firefox so this doesn't happen again.

I've had to create a new account (using my existing account would involve resetting the password, which, again, threatens to kill all my passwords) to ask this question.

Have a desktop and 2 laptops, (old and new). Need to share 100% of the desktop's Firefox profile directory structure with the 2 laptops. Meaning from the desktop;

scp -rp .mozilla/* laptop:~/.mozilla/

For security reasons, (and yes, I do work with government mandated private information), I can not share anything beyond my computers. So, the cloud is out of the question.

All I want is to copy my home directory from the desktop to the laptops, when needed.

Hi group!

This anomaly does not require "fixing".

I like to stream audio on my computer, and use a USB-powered transmitter that connects to the audio output of the MOBO, and broadcasts an FM signal (set to 107.5mHz, but can be set to other frequencies), so that I can listen to the audio via my stereo FM tuner or any other FM radio throughout the house. It outputs in the millivolt range.

This was driving me crazy, until I diagnosed what was causing it.

Viewing a web page, I'd immediately get FM interference, making the streaming FM audio, raspy and unlistenable, as soon as I clicked the "reader view" icon on the toolbar. Sometimes, I could click the icon again, to revert to the "normal" web page view, and the interference would stop. And clicking the icon to return to "reader view" again, the sound was O.K.

Other times, I'd have to close the tab entirely (which stopped the interference) allowing the streaming audio on the other tab to continue without interference. I could then open the tab on the "offending" site again, and the audio was O.K. I'd just continue with this tab in "normal" web page view.

Now, I know there are folks "out there", who are just as nerdy as I am, who are curious about how "reader view" is causing FM interference. The MOBO is an ASUS F2A85-V PRO, running an AMD CPU.

Any thoughts?

Just curious,
