After the most recent firefox upgrade, I noticed that the share button that is a firefox extension doesn't work any more. I just discovered that the share on facebook buttons on pages don't seem to work any more, either. This is extremely inconvenient. Drop-down menus don't work, nor does the "share to Facebook" button at the bottom of the page.

Hello. I was wondering to ask is there any APIs that I can use to get the valid versions of the Firefox browser with some basic information. Like the one, we have on the Wikipedia website, except I want to get the information from API instead of the websites.

I am not a programmer. Just tell me the path >, >, >... how to find my past sessions so I can restore them. I am using Linux and most recent version of FF, no windoze. I openend a few tabs since so History recovery doesn't seem to work. This is such a critical tool, why not just have a button to do this? Why make us hunt & peck every time?

For instance, it happens on sites that use Discourse for forums. I end up bookmarking the wrong URL if I forget to scroll back to the top of the page.

I can't find an addon (like Neat URL) that does anything like this, so I wondered if there was anything in about:config or such that might.

Hello Everyone.

I've been using Firefox for the longest time I can remember. I loved it. And I also have found the Firefox Account function quite convenient and useful. Also an avid fan. However, as of two months ago, I needed to re-install my Ubuntu OS on my laptop and of course Firefox as well. I enabled 2FA as I did before and it was a breeze. However, when I started using it (Account log-in/log-out) I keep getting asked to have the confirmation via my email and NOT via the 2FA app generated code I registered with it. At first, I still have the patience for it. But after several months, I am already pissed off. It's such an unbearable nuisance already, when I always have my 2FA app that I can always refer to in a snap. I really hate what's happening now. Can anybody please tell me what went wrong with Firefox 2FA account and why it keeps bugging me for email confirmation and not use the 2FA generated code? Makes me think all my efforts in setting the 2FA app useless and I've had enough already.

Thank you everyone for your help.

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.

First step of changing primary email is setting up secondary email. However: NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address.

I can't do that, because email domain changed, which is why I want to change the primary email in the first place. Moreover, this email address was verified a year ago. Therefore I don't receive verification code and my account gets locked.

Is there anything I can do to chance primary email to the correct one without verifying the currently stated, that I have no access to?

Please see attached image. Whenever I try to install an extension on firefox quantum 68.2.0 ESR it simply shows a greyed out button I cannot press. The only article I can find on this offers the solution that it can be fixed using another plugin (which I can't install for the same reason...)

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

I am unable to login to firefox accounts .

I have the correct Email and Password, but it keeps asking me for the conformation code sent to the email for login, but i dont have access to the Email as the password is saved in sync server.

I mean the Lockwise Sync server. No i don't have any device currently logged in to Sync. I recently Formatted my PC, So all files for password manager were lost(I synced the logins to the server before formatting my pc hoping that the Login id and Password for the Accounts would be enough to retrieve them ) and am trying to retrieve the logins.

No luck with the login links i can login but cannot change anything in the settings, it says :

" NOTE: Before you can view or make changes to this section, you will need to verify your email address. "

So any way i try it is asking for the conformation code sent to my Email address Whose password is stuck in my sync server.

So its like


can't access the sync server -------because------- can't access my email for code------because--------can't access my firefox lockwise -------because-------can't access sync server

Need Help ASAP Please.

Hi,

About 4 to 6 weeks ago I messed up my main/home/Whatever named file:///home/kline/.mozilla/local/hotlist.html <an html file with 2-deep links to other bookmarks>. Upon reboot I must have done *something* that messed up everything. The "3-dot", "pocket", "star" was either moved leftward or vanished ... Now that clever 4-icon { |||\ } that used to bring up whatever I had bookmark was gone.

Can anybody help me?

Noticed that silent printing doesn't work starting from new Firefox 78. Now I can't even find "print.always_print_silent" settings in about:config using this instruction:

   Set up the receipt printer as your default printer in the Devices/Printers screen.
   In Firefox, type in “about:config” and hit Enter.
   A dialogue box will appear, press “I’ll be careful, I promise.”
   Right click, select New | Boolean.
   Type in: print.always_print_silent
   Select True, then OK.

Could you please, maybe this setting was renamed or deleted?
