Hello, 1. How do I bring history back -since mid March - after a windows system reset and laptop clean up recently? I signed on but I cannot find the prior history nor tabs closed. I use Windows 10. 2. Why when I open a new tab, the 'profile or account' icon does not show my picture, so as to indicate that I am signed on? Each time a new tab is opened, Mozzilla does not recognize me!! 3. When I click on the account icon on the second row, instead of taking me to my account, it takes me to settings, Synch. 4. I have selected the dark mode - from customisation - but the first two rows are in light blue-gray color same as the task bar of Windows 10. 5. I tied to use the take a screen shot function to send you a screen shot of the page that appears in dark except the top rows, but when I click the screen shot icon - that I have placed in the second top row - it does not activate-work. 6. From the Menu some info shows in Greek although my selected language is English. Is it possibly due to my location, under the profile, being Greece? should I change it? I am sure I ll come across more issues, as it feels as I am driving a new car since the change and all is annoying Thanks

When my Firefox just updated, it said I could try editing PDFs in firefox (I'm on a Mac), but with the document it displayed, I can't edit it. I click and click on the empty lines, but no cursor appears. Is there a setting I need to check to make this work?

New computer, new install, when trying to log in to my account to set up sync/migrate, Firefox claims the password is incorrect ... the same password I just used on this (old) computer to log in and ask this question!

I've had issues with this before, when I synced up my phone. Took several attempts to log it in.

Also, tried changing password, but for some reason it won't accept a new one? (That's different issue. Would prefer to log in with current password. at least)

Thanks!

Dear Community,

After I tried to fix a slow browser in troubleshoot mode and reseted firefox, I get each time i start Firefox a success page with the option of restoring tabs.

I don't want that, I want my own startpage when i start Firefox, but i tried to get rid of it whiteout success. I enclosed a screenshot of the page i see everytime now.

I hope there is a solution for it to get my startpage back.

Thank you in advance,

Robert

This is not the first time this has happened, another idiot browser update: For whatever reason the checked box for "Always ask you where to save files" is out and instead defaults to "save file to" which over rules the checked box for "Always ask you where to save files" and then also auto opens attachments in pdf...

When FF loaded for first time after update had message about being able to fill in PDF documents. Even said give it a try on a option block. Then it displayed a form with blanks to enter name etc. However I wasn't able to enter name or data in the fields they sent me for trying it out. I could do other things with PDF FF displayed, draw, add text box, but not enter data on the form they sent to try it out. Wish I had saved the PDF they sent to show the new feature.

I used to be able to show speed dial bookmarks on my home page, as many rows as I had spd dial bkmks, like 30 or so. Now I cant even get speed dial to show anywhere anyway. I really want it on my home page, so when I launch FF or open a new tab, it auto shows all my speed dial bkmks. Please restore this functionality. We should not need some special extension to do this. It should be an option off the Settings tab

Is there a way to set the default view and sorting for file upload folder?

The default for me is, detailed view and sorted by date.

I wanted to change it to large icon and sort by name, so it's easier to upload images. but I have to change the setting for every individual folder, is there a way to just set it as default?

In French ('English underneath) J'essaye d'organizer mes marque pages 1)Je tape sur supprimer, la page revient à la prochaine application 2)Je crée un dossier. Dans des versions anterieures de Firefox, on pouvait simplement bouger les fiches avec controle>fleche jusqu'a le dossier. (Il n,y avait pas le separateur <autres marques pages>) Avant l'essai de reorganization, <autres marques pages> contenait la plupart des fiches, les marques pages normales (bouton >>je presume) contenait seulement une demi douzaine choisis au hazard. Apres l'installation des dossiers, <autres marque pages> contient seulement les dossiers, bouton >> toutes les fiches. Il est impossible de transferer de bouton >> jusqu'a <autres marque pages>, afin d'incluire les fiches dans un dossier.

I am trying to organize my bookmarks. 1)I press the delete button, the page comes back next time I open the computer 2)I create a file folder. In previous versions of Firefox ,there was no separator between bookmarks (button>> I assume) and <other bookmarks>, and one could transfer a file into a folder using control and the arrow. Before I tried to organize the bookmarks, <other bookmarks>for some reason contained nearly all my files, the button >> only a few chosen at hazard. Having created file folders, <other bookmarks> contains the folders, button >> all the files. It is impossible to transfer from button>> into the folders in <other bookmarks>.

Hi,

I noticed that the shortlinks/websites on my startpage (the House icon) are placing cookies as soon as I start Firefox. Not all of them and also in a random manor. This does not happen in Private Navigation, which i almost never use.

For me this is rather strange, I do not visit these shortlinks and already being tracked by those cookies. How can this be changed?

My settings are to clear all cookies and history at closure. Subquestion: Do I need to choose Options/Close or does this also work by clicking the X in the right upperhand corner to close Firefox.

Hope someone can shed some light... Lasco

I Have used Firefox as my main browser for a long time. I've also played the games on pch.com (Publishers Clearing House) for years. About ten days ago, I started having problems connecting. The error messages have changed a little each time, but still no access. I've also tried Chrome and Edge, and still no access. Today, I tried to access on my phone and got a 'site is not secure' message. Any idea what's causing this or what the problem may be? Have you heard about changes to the pch.com website? I can access the site if I turn off my ISP connection and use a data connection. My ISP is Optimum. Looking for any guidance. Thanks.
