This morning I had trouble updating my Firefox after the new update. Went to our IT people, who uninstalled Firefox, and installed a new one. The new one updated fine. However, I had forgotten my password, and had to reset it when logging in into the newly installed Firefox. Now I am logged in, but cannot see any of my bookmarks, etc. Essentially Firefox is treating my account as a new one and does not remember any of my settings. Is there anything I can do to recover my settings and bookmarks?

Thanks, Yuri

I have been using Firefox for many years and I have never had problems, until now, out of nowhere Firefox closes and the little window opens that the report is being sent to Firefox, but I can no longer restart or open Firefox, until I reset the computer, This can happen one, two, three and even four times a day, making it very uncomfortable to reset the computer.

I have already tried many ways to solve the problem, from completely uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it, I use very few extensions, I already disabled WebGL and also disabled hardware acceleration, nothing has worked, when Firefox closes, I cannot open Firefox Developer either and That browser was not even open at the time of the failure with Firefox.

System 3.4 GHz Intel Core i5 de cuatro núcleos NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2 GB 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3 macOS Ventura 13.6.3

Firefox: 121.0

This is what appears in the error message

Hi, I am seeing issues with autoscrolling in 119.0. In Rundeck for example you can "follow" the output of playbooks that are running so you can dynamically see the log as it is written. The autoscrolling in this field has stopped working. When manually scrolling in the field, more messages appear but the autoscrolling is no longer functional. I have also seen it on other places, though I don't have remember good examples to add, so I don't believe it is Rundeck causing the issue--we also haven't updated rundeck recently in our environment, so it shouldn't have changed since before 119.0 was released. Let me know if there is more information I can provide to diagnose the issue.

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

Dear help team,

First of all, thank you for your efforts to help this community. I've been using Firefox for about a decade and this is my first question, I believe.

I recently got a new Macbook. I've installed Firefox to it (my primary browser) and want to sync Firefox to it. I have Firefox on my iMac and my iPhone. However, my password is from 2014 and I can't seem to remember it no matter how many times I try. If I choose a new password, it gives me a warning that I will lose my account information, including my bookmarks, add-ons, history, etc. I really don't want to lose that info! I have spent a long time personalizing my Firefox.

Pleeeease tell me there's some other way to sync Firefox to my new laptop (when I can't remember my super old password).

Thanks in advance for your help! Best, Jason

Seems like when I tried logging in to my old account with a password reset, I somehow created a second account with the same email.

All my bookmarks and extension set ups seem to be gone.

Never had this issue, and have been using the same firefox account for like 5 years.

For whatever reason, I can't find a simple way to file a bug report. Starting 120.0, or maybe in 120.0.1, I've started seeing a cursor appearing next to buttons and other components on web pages that you definitely would not expect to see cursors next to.

It seems that a cursor has started to display when I click on web components even if it's not a text entry field. I've included a screen shot that includes a cursor appearing next to the Refresh button in Gmail, for example.

There's even a cursor appear in the "Browse" button on this very page in the Add Images section.

Up until this last update, in Gmail inbox, each message could be moused over top and action icons would show up. This no longer happens and I don't know why. It was very convenient not to have to open the message to take action on it and then return to the inbox. Now if I click the checkbox on the left side of the message those icons appear, but I never had to do this before??? I have not made any changes to the settings on my 1 year old Macbook Pro or Firefox configuration...

Hi there. I'm using Firefox on a windows and linux laptop with the same settings and version (98.02). On windows the Autofill Credit Cards settings show up, but on linux they don't. I already checked this question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1305626 and applied all settings in about:config that were suggested there. I have no clue, why the two operating systems differ in that way.

I've just updated my iMac which uses mac OS Monterrey12.5. As a direct result I can no longer use the Mozilla search window on the Foxfire Homepage. It's still there but it won't allow you to enter information into the box. Is there either a way to restore the functionality of the search window or at least disable it in settings so I don't have to see the window and be reminded that it no longer works? Thank you in advance for whatever assistance or answers you can provide.

Trying to retire the Google surveillance tool, Chrome, by using Firefox. Ugh, if y'all want to encourage this someone should really look at how this is done!

I got bookmarks moved and prefs setup. Importing extensions is really nice--thanks FF devs--but a feature of Chrome I use every day is the set of icons on the new tab/home page/startup page. It is super easy to customize on Chrome but I can find no way to do so in Firefox. These icons have no label on the page and are right under the search bar--see image.

I have spent most of the morning following unhelpful links about android or mentioning menu options that do not exist. I am using FF 119 on macOS.

Thanks to the community for help!

I have tried all of the suggested solutions here at Mozilla for how to delete a website URL from being autofilled: whenever I type 'pre', the autofill function fills in the rest of the website 'www.preply.com'. It was a horrible ESL teaching scam website, I only taught through it for a month last November then quit when they ripped me off. But now since last November, any time I type in 'pre'–I invariably see their annoying, shitty website :-( It is very annoying because it was a bad employer experience–and now I cannot ever remove them from Firefox :-(

I tried deleting it in the address bar with shift + delete, then also went into some obscure Firefox folder and deleted some file with Firefox closed (this was the supposed "solution"–it did NOT work).

Is there any way to solve this incredibly annoying issue? Or should I just switch to Chrome or Safari and give up? Very disappointed in how impossible Firefox makes deleting autofill URLS, really, REALLY BAD software programming. Any helpful or solution greatly appreciated thx :-)
