I recently changed my browser from chrome to fire fox but all my passwords are saved on chrome. I tried to import them on firefox but nothing gets imported from chrome. There is no autofill option for passwords here. I clicked on the three dots and did everything it said on the website but still the error message keeps popping up saying " An error occurred while trying to save this password". I tried going in the Passwords option and doing it manually but then the error message comes every time. Im using Firefox on my laptop.

In Chrome, the browser allows you to monitor all events fired on the window by typing "monitorEvents(window)" in the console. Firefox has no such function (that I can find). Can someone tell me how to do the same thing in the Firefox console? Otherwise, what is the JS event that gets fired when zooming text only on the browser? Normal zoom fires the resize event, but when text is zoomed it isn't as straightforward. I know that I could alternatively check the font size on the element, but that is not an event. Thanks!

I recently installed Firefox Developer Edition on a Debian system. I synced my existing profile. There is currently an "import bookmarks" tab displayed that I am unable to delete. I see other existing questions asking and answering this problem, however, I do not have the "customization" option recommended.

Hello, I have a strange problem, so after loading the system, the processor in my computer is drastically loaded, after entering the task manager, it turns out that one firefox process uses a lot of processor (photo in the attachment) after closing this process everything returns to normal and CPU consumption even while browsing the internet does not exceed 7% but it is quite persistent because I have to close this process every time, I will just add that this problem does not occur in other browsers. and none of my friends have it either. I'm using Windows 10 with the latest updates and the latest Firefox developer edition. The problem has been around for about a year and is really bothersome. My processor up to i7 2760qm, I have 16gb of ram. I will also add that in my second laptop with core 2 duo, this also happens only with me, no one who has this problem. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

during maintenance of my logins in my password manager I discovered that I still have the login data for a FireFox Sync account. I can login to that account and see my settings, but I actually want to delete the account completely. The problem: The mail address associated with that account does not exist anymore (changed the company). When trying to delete the account (or when trying to add a seconday mail address), Firefox Sync prompts me to enter a verification code that was sent by mail.

I'll never receive that code, as that original mail adress does not exist anymore.

How can I delete that FS Sync account?

Thanks, Frank

It seems version 93 has introduced a method of reducing bandwidth by disconnect tabs from websites, but reconnects upon selecting the tab. This is causing havoc when I am logged into several websites. Sites tabs that do not have focus force me to log back in when selecting the tab.

I am not concerned in saving bandwidth.

How do I disable this feature?

Mozilla must be run by 20 somethings who don't realize many computer users have been using them for longer than they've been alive. As a result we are needing to be able to change the WAY TOO SMALL text in the menu bar, drop downs, tabs etc. Now that Font Size and Color Changer no longer works, is there a way to increase those fonts? If not, why don't they add that feature to the next version?

Is there a way to increase those fonts or do I need to go back to Safari?

When using Instagram for Desktop random images fail to load

When the website is first accessed all is well, but once refreshed some images and profile pictures are greyed out and a brief description of the image in words appears rather than the image it's self.

On the occasions this happens the cross appears where the reload page button is

The issue is not replicated on either Waterfox, Chrome or Edge so I can only assume that it is a setting within Firefox that is causing the issue which is annoying as Firefox is my default browser !

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

While using yahoo mail (reading the emails) . gets intermittent ' no internet connection ' however the internet is working very well . If you wait a few minutes it will clear and can access the next email. I have been long time user of Firefox with no problems but this has been happening the past 2 months. If I go to microsoft Edge no problems. I'm using norton security but that has been several years , I have deleted cache and cookies.

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

Hi, I recently setup a new computer and had to reset my firefox account password to login for sync.

everything worked fine, that was last week.

I just setup another computer and had to repeat the password reset process. I am now logged into my firefox account however it's not syncing? will there be some kind of security delay because I reset my password multiple times recently? I really need my saved logins.

any help would be appreciated, thanks
