Within the last few weeks, sometimes when I try to use Firefox, I'm told to reconnect to Firefox. I reconnect by entering my account password, etc., but after I've thus reconnected, my previously saved passwords are gone. I've tried to import them from another browser, but it doesn't import them. The only way that I can proceed is to manually enter my passwords to other sites. Everything is good for a few days, but eventually, I'm asked to reconnect to Firefox, and when I do, my saved passwords are gone. This is so frustrating that I'm about to stop using Firefox. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Thanks.

Working with problems with TrueKey. Opens Chrome when Firefox is standard browser. Looking into the standard apps settings, Firefox has two entries. Is this a bug or residue form earlier versions? There is no difference in settings following this or that entry.

The address wasn’t understood

Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (fb) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

   You might need to install other software to open this address.

How does Firefox determine the most recent downlaod folder? Why does it change arbitrarily?

I have set the Downloads preference to "Always ask you where to save files".

When I download a file (I usually download PDF files), Firefox presents the file picker dialog with some directory pre-selected.

I would expect Firefox to pre-select the directory where I saved my most recent file.

However, Firefox often switches between several of my recent directory, seemingly absolutely arbitrarily. It would present the most recent directory e.g. 5 times in a row then suddenly switch to some other directory on its own.

This is EXTREMELY annoying and bad, as it is easy to overlook the changed directory and save the file in an unintended directory. It happened several times to me.

This behavior so destructive and annoying that I would consider it a bug that should get fixed (other browsers do not do this!). However if it is for some strange reason considered to be a feature, how can it turned off and how can Firefox be made to ALWAYS present the most recent download directory?

Hallo, since I've switched from InternetExplorer to FireFox as the standard browser, I cannot open MHT-files which I downloaded from the web. Firefox starts to open new tabs, by the second, endlessly. The process can be stopped only by killing Firefox with the TaskManager, several times. Is this a bug or a feature? Many thanks Ante

I want to import my mobile Safari bookmarks into Firefox on my desktop. I have read many articles on here but none of them have helped. I had hopes for this one(https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1285031) but it was unclear whether the user was on a Mac or PC.

I have already installed iCloud for Windows and the iCloud Bookmarks add-on in Firefox. I have supposedly performed the sync operation already, but nothing seems to have transferred. I have neither the Safari bookmarks in Firefox, nor the Firefox bookmarks in Safari(which I do not want or care about as Safari will be deleted when I am done with all this) I don't see any options to adjust any kind of settings in either program.

I very much would like to get this iCloud thing to work. If that continues to be unsuccessful, is it possible to create an HTML file from the mobile Safari bookmarks and import THAT into Firefox?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?

CPU's intermittently would rev high and cause shut down. I opened task manager processes and CPU usage was high in Firefox. I clicked on Firefox and seven other Firefox dropped down. Not sure what that meant but, I then opened programs and noticed two versions on my computer, 82.0 and 84.0. I uninstalled 82.0 and now everything is gone. I reinstalled 84,0,2 but, it is "watered down" from the version before the uninstall. Please let me know how I can recover Firefox to before the uninstall. I'm running Windows 10 Home.

I use Firefox on my various devices and I've never faced this issue before. On my new laptop which is a XPS, whenever I let my laptop go to sleep, once I return it from sleep Firefox is unusable (frozen). I can do other things with my laptop but I can't interact with Firefox in any way as it is completely frozen. Sometimes I am able to open a new tab but can't type anything into the search bar.

What I do to use Firefox right now is kill the process in task manager and launch Firefox again and for the most part I am able to use the browser but it is very tedious having to do this. Some steps I've tried to permanently fix this so far are disabling hardware acceleration and disabling disk caching but nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far.
