Hi i am experiencing a weird thing for the last 20 days or so.See as part of my work flow i created some folders for the bookmarks and i am bookmarking the pages depending upon the category or folders i created respectively.Somehow for the past 20 days or so when i ever i hit Ctrl+D to save the bookmark its showing the previous folder name in which i saved the earlier bookmark.Previously it used to show blank and from the drop down i used to select the appropriate folder to save the bookmark to the particular folder. Is it a bug or something i need to fix it ?

Note: Please see the attached image i tried to bookmark this particular page and its already showing the previous bookmarked folder. On the attachment I hide it for the privacy sake with red color.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

Regards Raja

I download a lot of images, and I would like to remove a bunch of entries from the context menu for images (entries which I keep clicking by accident). Can I do that?

Thank you.

I am using FF 71, which I will not be upgrading. Indeed, I want to return to a previous version to stop the upgrade nagging.

For all intents and purposes, there are no 'nonprofit' companies. Their is a large grey are between the two such that the entire spectrum is in that grey area. Firefox has become a Big Business Behemoth. The surest way to tell if you're dealing with a Big Business Behemoth is 'Customer Service'. Big Business Behemoths don't supply REAL customer support, you have to get whatever support you can from their 'Community', their end-users.

The most recent update of firefox was released without thoroughly ridding itself of glitches: the end-users will report the glitched that were missed.

Since update 85.0.1 was inflicted upon my computer without my permission. It not only hangs at somepoint while I'm using it, the little 'end peocess' window doesn't work, I can't minimize firefox and do something else until it wakes up from its nightmare, I can't access Task Manager, my only option is to wait. I'm not very good at the waiting game. Other applications have started hanging as well. I have no choice in the matter, I have to be patient until the problem resolves itself.

I am allowed the option to reset firefox and lose my bookmarks, my history and probably my saved logins. That's not an option , it's surrender.

How to display *.html.gz files in browser for local files

I need to find a way to allow Firefox to display gzipped local files named like *.html.gz in the browser, for a new application I am working on.

Netscape 4.79 can do this, but it's very out-of-date and lacks modern Javascript and CSS support.

The behaviour of Firefox on local files named *.html.gz is to download them. Why? The files are already saved on the local disk...

Is there a configuration setting I can change to make Firefox display these files?

Ideally, ANY local file with a double extension of *1.*2.gz should be decompressed in the browser. Where *1 would be a name and *2 would be a file type that the browser can normally display (like HTML) or load (like Javascript/CSS,etc.).

If a user really does want to download a local file of this type, there could be a right click option like "Save Link As Uncompressed" or an option in Firefox config to switch this behaviour off.

Needing to run a webserver on the PC just so the browser can display compressed html is a bit ridiculous...

Ever since Firefox updated to version 85, I have been unable to stream anything. Netflix tells me I need to install Microsoft's Media Feature pack. Nope! I am running Windows 7 Home Premium (NOT the "N" version) so I have Windows Media Player installed already. I also cannot stream SiriusXM stations, Apple TV+, Spotify, CNN videos.....basically anything that involves streaming. YouTube videos still work however.

It's definitely a problem with the Firefox browser because all the above streaming sites work just fine under a different browser (Chrome). I have cleared the cache, I have started Firefox in Safe Mode, I have unchecked hardware acceleration.....NOTHING works!

Help please! I really don't want to refresh Firefox and lose all my settings.

There is a problem that has haunted me for many years, regardless of the versions of firefox, the bottom line is that when I close the browser after a long work, and open it later, an outdated session is restored, 4-5 hours old, and not the last one. Having watched the "sessionstore-backups" folder and its three files, I found that at some point these files simply stop changing, so the next time the browser is opened, the session is not fresh. Why is this happening, I cannot understand why the session files freeze and do not update despite the fact that I continue to work in firefox ??

I am upgrading my PC from W7 Home Premium to W10 soon. I understand this will result in a complete reimage of the PC and all existing files will have to be restored. I currently use a Seagate external hard drive as a system backup. Can the W7 "backup" Firefox file on the Seagate be used to restore my existing bookmarks to the new W10 Firefox download? If so, how do I do this?

I was logged on, Firefox shut down, installed new updates, and wiped everything because of new privacy controls - bookmarks, history, settings, everything! To log into my account, I had to reset because I lost my password and couldn't get to the recovery key link. I have a backup bookmarks file from a couple of days ago, but it's missing some really important pages I just bookmarked last night and there's no history for me to reference. First of all, why did Firefox do such a drastic update with no notice and secondly, is there anything I can do to restore everything I'm missing? I'm so upset I'm thinking about removing Firefox as my default browser. TIA for your help.

I'm wondering if other FF users have this problem: I have a permanent VPN connection which I know can cause issues with geolocation checks and IP addresses. But FF security an privacy has got so good now I'm having problems with online shopping and security used by PayPal and Ebay. I have FF set as default browser but I can also use Chrome, which I know is very leaky, both are connecting to the same VPN IP. and DNS server.

Chrome options are set vanilla, i.e privacy (lack of!) and security are as it ships default. My FF options are now set with private browsing off and cookies trusted for Ebay and Paypal. Fingerprint detection might be an issue because I know many sites are using it. My FF cookies are cleared at shutdown but cookie exceptions are set for these sites.

Ebay checkout using a PayPal option links to the PP site login, then returns to their checkout basket. Very often FF just sits there with a screen waiting for the final confirmation. If I switch to Chrome the final checkout and payment confirmation succeeds. I have noticed on FF there's TLS transfer activity (handshake?) during this waiting period when nothing happens. These payment checkouts don't seem to like private browsing either, which I have had to turn off.

Until recently this was just a nuisance, until one auction site decided my login credentials had been compromised and blocked account access.

Unless somebody has the solution, I'm wondering if I can set options in Firefox to start with minimal privacy aka Chrome, then increase the level in stages until secure checkout breaks? At the moment I don't know what FF security or privacy setting is causing the problem?

Thanks

After updating tо Firefox 81.0 the browser stopped saving files and pages. For example, when I click file > save, nothing happens, the files also are not saved when using "save link as" or clicking on a link. The browser seems to perform all other functions flawlessly. If anyone knows what the problem is, pls share any relevant experience.

I'd been having issues with connectivity (local issues, wireless AP connection), and one day this week the browser had issues loading my saved tabs, I'm suspecting because of my poor connectivity, so I close the browser, disconnect from my AP, reconnect, fire up Firefox again (it tells me it's applying updates before it loads up), and a blank screen with my homepage loads up instead of my saved tabs and settings. I don't know what's caused that, but it's led to the issues I'm having now.

I laid out the page the way it was before I was having these connectivity issues, with 5 app tabs (Gmail, Youtube, Facebook, Instagram and one other) and a few normal tabs. I closed the browser, reopened, and now what it's doing is making the Facebook app tab and the Instagram app tab open up as normal tabs, unlike before when they stayed as app tabs. To be clear, if I rearrange these two to be app tabs and shut down the browser, then reopen it, the app tabs begin as normal when the browser opens, until they start loading up... THEN it changes ONLY THESE TWO app tabs back to normal tabs.

Nothing has changed in my settings; I don't clear browser history on exit, I have Restore Previous Session always ticked. I still can't tell what's causing this.
