I searched extensively for this and could only find answers regarding bookmarks, not add-on icons. Of course I could still be missing it...

I am upgrading from Firefox Developer 86 to 101.

The spacing between add-on icons has been increased in Firefox 101, making the URL bar shorter:

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-05-26-17-03-36-e06f37.png

Does anyone know of a userChrome.css script that I can use to decrease the add-on icon spacing in Firefox 101, to make it more like Firefox 86?

Webauthn/FIDO2 2FA key support for Firefox Accounts

Hi, Firefox Accounts (Fxa) support TOPT (Google authenticator etc) 2FA, which is pretty good, however it would be great if you could support Webauthn/FIDO2 (Yubikey etc).

There was a Bugzilla bug for this, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1464888 opened 4 years ago, however about a year ago it was closed wontfix because it "is not currently on our roadmap"

Which seems like a really bad idea? Given that most security people, browsers and OSs are saying "passwordless is the future", and FIDO2 is how that will happen. And even passwordless aside, FIDO2 is a more robust and generally easier to use option than even TOTP apps

This morning, firefox updated when I opened it. Now, since the latest update, when I click on a link in an email, firefox, my default browser- opens, but does not navigate to the page- it just sits there, empty and lifeless.

   I close firefox, and when I open the browser from the start menu, it says it is still running, and I have to choose the option to close the old browser before it will open.
  I have disabled add-ons, tried disabling hardware acceleration, even resetting FireFox, and none of it helps.
   This problem did not exist at all yesterday.

I can log in to sync on one of my Mac laptops but not my other. Restarting Firefox and restarting computer doesn’t help. It seems as if I log in as my password is accepted and it then it takes me to the screen where it wants to pair with the Firefox app on my phone but when I go in to preferences -> sync I’m not signed in and pressing the button to log in to sync does nothing. Please help. I have the latest version of Firefox installed.

I am on Windows 11. I utilize Firefox only. I have always been able to obtain banking statements but now I am getting an error message: "Your session has timed out due to inactivity. To access your online statement please close this window and click the link found in Online Banking to reopen online statement." I contacted the bank and they had me clear cookies but it didn't help. They tried to get me to cookie settings, bit mine steps were not the same as theirs. The had me go to Chrome and their site worked perfectly. I prefer Firefox and would hate to have to make it my primary. Do you know why my banking is not working on Firefox? How can my cookie setting be OK for Chrome but not Firefox?

I have a little javascript was given to me that increases the volume when playing Youtube vids that are too quiet. here it is: javascript:(function(){var videoElement = document.querySelector("video");var audioCtx = new AudioContext();var source = audioCtx.createMediaElementSource(videoElement);var gainNode = audioCtx.createGain();gainNode.gain.value = 3; /* triple the volume */ source.connect(gainNode);gainNode.connect(audioCtx.destination);})();

I don't know how it works. Whether it talks to firefox or it talks to win10 or it talks to Youtube. I don't know.

But sometimes it doesn't work. then I have to reboot.

Seeing it is in Firefox I just thought firefox guys might know something about why it doesn't work and perhaps some way to kick it into action?

When browsing the BBC Sport website (using a VPN) and clicking on a link, I often get the error code mentioned in the subject (see attachment). If I try to follow the same link on other browsers (Edge, Chrome) the link is displayed without problem. The issue goes away if the VPN is disconnected. Why is it only Firefox that has this issue and is there a solution? (apart from not using the VPN)

On my home page, why is it that after the last update that all the tiles showed the same icons except truthsocial which now is blank? It had a funny sorta 'T' tile before the update but now is blank. Funny how that worked out. I look at left/right and Libertarian but this is the only tile that's blank.

Have registered and tried to log in with an insurance provider. Usual stuff - email, then password. In Firefox it keeps opening new tabs repeatedly - forever if I let it. I have to close the browser to stop it!

Have tried to do the same thing via Microsoft Edge, and it works just fine, so I'm not stuck, but it does seem to be the browser. I usually, and would have, put this url into a container, but, as stated, it just keeps opening a new tab at the rate of about 1 a second!

Have tried opening other exisiting bookmarks in Firefox and they work just fine.

Have tried Settings/Privacy and Security/Clear Data Have tried CCleaner. Have tried restart.

Help!

Hi, I did something very stupid recently: I signed out of my firefox account, checking the box that I wanted to delete all my data locally. I did not realise that included my firefox account saved login and I couldn't access my account without resetting my password. Now all of my saved passwords (including my origional firefox password) are deleted. I am very angry now because I have very important passwords that I cannot recover now - it is a 'knock-on effect'. I know I was stupid to not note down my Firefox password - I had enabled 2FA so I thought I would be fine.

Please try and help me. Have a nice day,

I bought a new/refurbished laptop. Set up the sync. Brought it up on the new device. Which failed. Did not have it ten days, the screen went dead. When I went back to the other device (originally holding the info), the color scheme chosen was GONE. The links I had set up in the rows I had chosen were ALL GONE. I tried the sync. No idea why all my saves are gone. My BOOKMARKS are intact, but not all the rows of links were saved as bookmarks.

i am trying to issue my weekly educational newsletter. The Constant Contact template will not allow ANY spaces; ie.between words. When speaking with Constant Contact about this problem they said it arose with Firefox's last update; that their templates are not at fault. They say their "engineers are working with you to resolve this issue." They then go on to advise us to switch to Google. Having worked in this field "in a distant lifetime," if this were the actual issue, it should be resolved in about an hour. Seems to me there is something fishy going on here. I have been with Firefox since it was invented. I am loathe to switch to Google.
