This question is no longer an issue, I got information by reading `.mozilla/firefox/[...]/formhistory.sqlite`. Turns out I used a temporary email months ago and Firefox decided to suggest it now.

Below is the original question:

Hello,

Firefox has cached an email I have never seen before. The email domain is paseacuba.com, which is a temporary email service that I never used before. This computer is my own and no one else uses it.

I noticed this as a suggestion from a form. (Image below)

Could this be explained by any other reason than someone else using this machine ? I was away for the weekend and this happened.

Thank you !

when i start up the window is undersized. i carefully adjust it to the linux activities on the left and the date time bar on top as it always used to be. next start it is back a couple of inches smaller. I renamed the setup file as in the article. no change.

i do not want to lose my extensions. reset is out. there is privacy badger, ghostery and privacy possum, and some you tube to mp3downloaders, and i cannot tell in the manage extensions which is the one i use and which are the ones that don't work. so i am not willing to try reset. something already deleted almost all my bookmarks, and i just keep links in a directory now.

I have a dell xps 7390 2-in-1 one laptop loaded with Pop_os 21.04. (Linux) and vanilla firefox with no extensions installed.

The laptop is touch screen.

When I tap the address bar at the top, the onscreen keyboard opens up. i am able to type into the address bar. Hitting the enter key on the onscreen keyboard does nothing. I have to tap the little go icon.

If I repeat this activity using the mouse and keyboard. hitting the enter button works fine.

Hi! I use Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3. I tried to speed up video on Sharepoint. Right click -> speed -> 2.0 and nothing happend. When I right click -> speed again, I saw that speed still 1.0. Then I went to google, found that Sharepoint allow speed up videos only in HTML5 player. Then I knew that to do that in Firefox I should disable Hardware acceleration, so I did it, but it didn't help. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco add-on is activate.

Then I decided that's Ubuntu. I install ubuntu-restricted-extras, ffmpeg packages (to support h.264 video), restarted, but again that didn't work.

youtube.com/html5 saying that everything fine.

In the attached image, the code is indented with 4 spaces, but it displays as if it's 2 spaces because the spaces are thinner than the other characters. In the second image, I've highlighted a single space, which is half the width of the character above it. I also downloaded the latest nightly and this still happens with it.

Github's current `font-family` rule: `ui-monospace,SFMono-Regular,SF Mono,Menlo,Consolas,Liberation Mono,monospace`

In devtools, firefox underlines `Liberation Mono` as the active font-family, but I uninstalled that from my system and it switched to `monospace` (Noto Sans Mono) with the same issue. If I change it to remove the `Consolas,Liberation Mono,` it gets fixed, but when `Liberation Mono` is installed+highlighted and I only remove `Consolas,` it doesn't work til I remove `Liberation Mono,` as well. Note that both `Consolas` and `Liberation Mono` resolve to "Noto Sans Mono" "Regular" in fc-match, which is my default monospace font.

Hello there,

so I usually have two Firefox windows open, both in fullscreen. When I than shutdown and restart my computer, and open Firefox again, it will create two windows with the tabs I had opened before (although I didn't check "Restore previous session" in my settings), but one of those windows will be small and flickering while the other is working normally. A solution I found to stop it from flickering is to press "F11" two times to maximize it and than get it back to normal fullscreen mode.

I tell you, I have Firefox for a long time, it is my favorite browser, but a few weeks ago I forgot the password; a, I tried to change it, with the keys etc and I could not, so I decided to reset it, of course it hit me because I lost All my bookmarks in folders and in order ... well, the fact is that three days ago I think I went back to my firefox and suddenly I went back to my previous account, that is, as if I had not reset it, it was all there, but Also my problem with the password is back, I can not change it, supposedly I had already done it, but it appears the previous one to which I changed a few days ago, to which I cannot change because I do not remember, and I returned to the same thing, no I want to reset again because maybe the same thing happens, what should I do then? Can you help me change my password without losing everything again? It hadn't happened to me before and I don't know what to do, it all seemed very strange to me.

Thanks for reading and helping me.

I set up my Fido2 key to work with my Microsoft account on Windows, but when I tried using it on Linux, I noticed that the option to sign in with security key is missing altogether, I tried using Edge and that worked fine, so it should be something regarding Firefox, please advise. I do have security.webauth.webauthn_enable_softtoken set to true and I can log it with it on Yubikey's demo site, so my only guess it Firefox didn't report the flag that's required to log in with security key for Microsoft accounts?

It's understood that --no-remote (and --new-instance, though with slightly different abilities) will allow the -P {profile name} to function when a previous profile is already up and running.

That works as expected, thus this works (tested under Linux Mint/zsh)

---> firefox --no-remote -P Dwight {............} and ---> firefox --no-remote -P Schmidlapp {............} (with both running).

HOWEVER,

When profile Dwight is running, and I try to execute another run at the same time of a Dwight profile, I'll get the same old error message (attached) on the second run.

I have a problem with the bookmarks toolbar. If I display a dropdown menu and then move the mouse pointer over the menu entries, the next level of entries for a folder are not displayed. This doesn't apply to all the folders, some display the next level, some do not. This problem is getting progressively worse. All the entries are present on 'Bookmark Management' I use the latest version of Firefox on the latest version of Ubuntu.

I sync the bookmarks between several devices, the toolbar works properly on the other devices. (Ubuntu, Mac OS, Android)

This is not a problem on "System theme". There are no black squares poking and out it looks perfectly round.

I have Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon OS. Why does Firefox keep opening links in new tabs after using the search bar? I narrowed it down to being the Yahoo search engine. I switched it to DuckDuckgo, but is there a way to keep it with yahoo without new links always popping up? I've already tried opening up Firefox in safe-mode and I double checked to make sure I don't have any extensions/add-ons.
