At first I was getting the something not wrong but don't fret we'll give it another shot message so I looked online and added Twitter to a block list and cleared all my cookies. This got rid of that message and I was able to get to the login page but when I go to login it still won't let me. I know the password is right (it also doesn't say anything like incorrect username/password). Someone in another forum had mentioned going into configs and flicking something from true to false or vice versa and that also didn't work. Most places I look just say the same old thing about cookies. It works perfectly fine on the mobile app and Chrome still but I prefer Firefox. I'm out of ideas.

Under "Cookies and Site Data," "Clear Data" also removes the exceptions to "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed." That's a contradiction, and basically it becomes a waste of time to enter the exceptions. That's what exceptions are -- the rule "exepts" them. It would be nice if Firefox could fix this (unless there is already a work-around for it). FWIW. Thanks.

Hi,

I had a window open with many tabs. I opened a new window with 1 tab. I accidentally closed the window with the many tabs, then closed the one with 1 tab. Now, I would like to restaure the window with many tabs but since it wasn't the last closed, Firefox restaure the one with 1 tab. How can I do since I'm trying to restaure a window that wasn't the last closed?... I have red: "If you close each window one by one, only the tabs of the last closed window will be reopened the next time you start Firefox".... So I'm afraid it's not possible but never know ?...

Thanks! Cyril

I would like to use HTTPS to access my router's web interface without having to bypass the "Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead" page.

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

Running 81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1 as you can see in the uploaded screenshot images parts of the statistics are not easily seen because they're overwritten. I've uploaded three screenshots, one from Firefox, one from Google Chrome and one from Brave. I've tried adjusting the font size and have checked 'allow pages to chose their own fonts' to no avail.

Hi,

I need to disable the Top Sites section where facebook/youtube etc. buttons are shown. In short I want every new window and every new tab shown on the browser to show a blank page (about:blank) for all users, and this needs to be configured at install time.

I am using a policies.jason file during installation to control certain aspects, but there is no setting to do what I am trying to do. Is there any way?

I am using Firefox 78.3.1 ESR. Thanks in advance!

In my home network there are several servers whose URLs end with ".lan". For example http://nas.lan or http://router.lan. When I want to connect to these machines with Firefox, I usually type router.lan in the address bar. But then Firefox starts searching for router.lan on google. Afterwards I am asked if I had wanted to access http://router.lan instead and when I click "Yes" Firefox takes me where I actually wanted to go. However, this can get quite annoying over time, and I wonder if it is possible to tell Firefox to go directly to the URL I enter whenever it is a string ending with ".lan" and avoid to search for it? Don't get me wrong, I do not want to disable the search bar completely as I am very used to type in searches into the address bar directly.

I would like to set this pref to TRUE by default with the use of user.js file but I can't find the name of the pref related to this behaviour :

I'm on a window. I click on a link. Before it fully load, i get back on my first tab. The opened tab fired up a popup to inform me of something.

I would like to be automaticly redirected on this tab without having to manually press the checkbox on the dialog popup.

There must be a preference to add to user.js in my profile folder to set it to TRUE.

Same Problem on 2 Macs (!) (PowerBook Pro with HighSierra + PowerBook Pro with Mojave). Both have latest Firefox 81.0.1 installed:

I moved Firefox App inside die App Folder (used it for years without problems put of another directory). When launching it again, I was informed by a promt window, that Firefox uses now a new default profile instead of my own profile. So I launched "about:profiles" and choosed my old profile as my standard profile again and restareted FF.

My Bookmarks and so on where restored as expected, but I recognized, that the feature to create screenshots was suddenly gone. On both Macs ! No Button in the bar and also no option with right mouse click. I tried also "about:config", but there all screenshot settings have been ok.

Screenshot feature is only missing in my profile. It works if I choose the new standard profile without all my bookmarks an so on, but this is no help to me.

What can I do to make the screenshot feature work with my profile again? Thanks for your help in advance!

I can open ancestry.com just fine Microsoft Edge browser so I'm assuming the problem is with Firefox.
