Firefox asked me if I wanted to clean up my firefox and I said yes and I lost all my user names and passwords. Furthermore, now, of several that I do remember, when I enter those websites and type in the user name and password it prompts me to ask if I want to save them, I say yes, but it does not save them. Is there any way to get these back? Why aren't the passwords I enter going forward saving? I'm furious about this as I have no other record of these. I do not have any kind of password software either. I've used Firefox for 10+ years but ready to jump to a different browser. This is maddening

This is so stupid, I was just on Facebook then it told me to refresh, now theres some security crap.

Facebook does NOT require any HSTS, Edge goes there with no problem. This is why I deleted Firefox last night, I downloaded it again to try to get there and what do you know, it worked. That is until it told me to refresh, then all of a sudden you claim it requires this HSTS which is crap. The only reason I'm not on Edge now is one small little imperfection that Firefox doesn't have. So I guess I'll be deleting Firefox yet again with it's HSTS nonsense.

<body background="DNASidebar_files/DNA%2520Sidebar%2520for%2520Firefox.html">
<div class="title">Bioinformatics Sidebar</div>
<div class="subtitle">Active as of: <i>2022-05-18</i></div>

<div class="folder">Databases</div>
<a href="www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore">Nucleotide</a>
...
</body></html>

To use this, I just click it in whatever folder it's in and it comes up in Firefox. If I run this on either Linux or Mac, when I click "Nucleotide" it takes me to the URL. If I do this on Windows 11, my URL looks like the following:

file:///C:/Users/xxxxx/Documents/www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore

What do I need to do on Windows to get the real URL to execute?

Thanks, Joe

Hi. I've been having this problem with my iMac for sometime, but now it's affecting my Macbook Pro, as well. Both machines are 2015, running OS 10.15.7.

They have problems loading webfonts (I get the annoying question marks). I tried creating a new test user, and the issue persisted. Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks!

Hi All

I disabled the group-by option everywhere in my Win 11 home. Now I can open any folder and avoid that useless feature... except if I open the download folder from Firefox.

Details: - if I open my Downloads folder from the desktop shortcut I get it normal (no group-by) - if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox Library/Downloads window, then the windows folder is shown with Group-by enabled - the same happens if I click the folder icon close to the downloaded file in Firefox's download toolbar icon

Does this happen to others? Thank you Stefano

I have tried to get help regarding the 2 problems that I feel are related. I use Norton as my security system, they say that Firefox is up to day. When I try to start Firefox it takes two or three times clicking on the icon before it stays open. Then when I need to open a new tab to go to a website that I have opened a hundred times, sometimes it will not even open the website and other times it will open but not let me sign in. On the sign in page to error this morning said: Bad Request - "Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of request header field exceeds server limit."

It will often just say it can't start that page, try again.

The "try again" has been going on for awhile, the Bad Request is new. Please help me with this problem! It is beginning to get annoying.

Thanks for your help. [email and phone# removed from public view]
