Sometimes when I click a link (in an email) to download a document, a completely unnecessary blank tab opens immediately before the save dialog. A new blank tab opens for each document I download. There used to be a preference to stop that happening. The closest I can find is dom.targetBlankNoOpener.enabled but I can't find any intelligible information about that.

- on my Macbook Air i've just changed from using Safari to Firefox. I synchronized Firefox on all my devices (IPhone, IPad). However, using firefox, passwords from ICloud (the server) are not automatically enetered if I visit a website. Since apple generated these passwords it's quite a challange to enter them all by hand. There must be a more efficient solution. In short: how can i allow Firefox to use the passwords stored in my account on ICloud? - how do I transfer my favorites from safari in Firefox (the import tool only gives the option to import bookmarks).

I do hope someone can help me; many thanx in advance, anyway.

Last night I had to re-install Firefox because I couldn't connect with internet

Since last night and up to now I've tried multiple solutions, however, the re-installed Firefox is not working as previously (just yesterday afternoon) - for example, on the left all my screens are partly hidden - also desktop doesn't show up, then search is not responding correctly and adding to the taskbar is practically as good as out of order. Unfortunately I've also detected that the re-installment come with demand of using - bing - which I do not use, as I'm very familiar with Firefox & Google which I've been using at least for over a decade an are very Happy with. However - bing - kept popping up, until finally today/afternoon the facility to dismiss - bing - suddenly & fanally was available so it got by-passed, although as much as possible, as it rears its presence still somehow every now & then. On top of all this, I also don't have Desktop

This is not so much a question but a cry for mercy... please, please, please... no more 'upgrades', no more 'improvements' that aren't. I've been using computers since 1979 (my first was a Tandy TRS80) but I'm now 74 and can't keep up. After the last couple of 'upgrades' Tbird and FF have become almost unusable. :-(

Logins and passwords not imported in Version 81

To start off, I've never used the sync feature. Not that I think it won't work, I just haven't trusted the cloud enough yet. That being said, I know my logins and passwords are stored in the "profile" in the appdata of mozilla firefox, on this local computer. To my knowledge, this information is stored in the "logins.json" file located in my default profile. Up until now, I have had no issues retrieving the information I need. However, after this morning, when Version 81 was installed, I visited a website where I needed a particular login. I normally have Firefox automatically populate this information, on this particular site. However, since that did not happen this time, I checked my "logins and passwords" page, only to find "No logins found" on the sidebar, and "No synced logins found" in the main space, with instructions on how to sync from other devices or import from other browsers. Since I have not had a login before (for Firefox), I created an account to see if I could import the information from a previous version. However, only other browsers were listed, and I can't sync from another device, as the information is stored on this machine. Creating an account has also allowed me to post here...

I have opened the logins.json file with notepad, and the logins-backup.json file, and both are full of information. Of course it's not plain text, but the information is there. I can also open these files with Firefox, however, it doesn't recognize the file as the "logins and passwords" file, it just displays the encrypted information in a different (html?) format.

Any advice on how I can import these 55+ logins and passwords without re-creating or changing each one of them? Thanks.

I just got a new Mac. I've had Firefox on my old Mac for years.

During installation on the new machine, I must have made a mistake/been too hasty.

In the first instance, I dragged the Firefox icon into my Apps folder, but since it didn't appear in my list of applications, I tried to run it from the .dmg package directly.

Since then, I realised I'm not supposed to do this. So I've deleted everything Firefox from my computer and restarted it several times.

However, each time I now re-download the Firefox installer and go through the steps to instal it, the same thing happens: it only ever runs from the .dmg package. Whenever I delete the .dmg from my computer Firefox stops running.

Can someone help? Thank you!
