I have been using Firefox for a while. And then I had a different customer laptop which did not have one and I could not install anything. So I used Chrome. Now with a new laptop when I try to import the settings into Firefox, there are multiple duplicate entries found.

Is there an automated way to run through the same and clean it up?

Firefox is my default browser. It’s bookmark manager is incredible! However, I have many Firefox (and other browser) exported files I need to consolidate. The Firefox bookmark manager is so good I can drag and drop bookmarks from these other files into Firefox.

I want to consolidate these bookmarks using the Firefox bookmark engine, but not by interfering with the bookmarks currently in Firefox. Also, since this will take a while, I don’t want to export my current Firefox bookmarks; clean out my current bookmarks; and spend the next two weeks using other browsers while I employ Firefox to clean up my bookmark situation.

Three Questions 1) Can I bring up another/unique Firefox window (like an earlier version; a separate window; a second install that I can open/close separate from the install I’m using now) that I can scrub clean of all bookmarks use it to rebuild all my bookmarks by dragging/dropping bookmarks from my many saved .html bookmark files--WITHOUT MESSING WITH MY CURRENT BOOKMARKS? 2) Alternatively, is it possible to just install the Firefox bookmark engine, separate from the Firefox browser? 3) Also, is there a simple way to instruct Firefox’s bookmark manager to delete duplicate bookmarks?

Thanks

I've asked this question before and got no answer. Every time Firefox has an update, all my pinned sites in the "top sites" section gets discombobulated. What can I do to stop this? Apparently the sync feature doesn't seem to be working. I'm getting tired of manually putting everything back every time. If I don't get an answer I guess I'll have to disable updates.

Hi, I have started to use notion.so and they have a nice range of keyboard shortcuts, e.g.

cmd + shift + p

for moving pages :)

Unfortunately this shortcut is already "blocked" by Firefox for opening "New Private Windows".

There is no chance to alter the keyboard-shortcuts on notion, so I wonder if anyone can help me with remapping this one in Firefox to, let's say: cmd + alt + n?

Thank you Sascha

Hello all,

I've read some bug reports and discussions about the JNLP files blocked in Firefox ( JNLP should be treated as executable , Should not treat JNLP files as Executables (revert bug 1392955) on ESR-68 , Improve usability for JNLP and other executables and JNLP should not be considered an executable extension ). All I'm understanding is it has been blocked since Firefox 67, then "allowed" back again, then blocked for security purposes in Firefox 78. To sum it up, the bug 1576762 is still open, JNLP are still blocked. Nowadays, it's not possible to directly launch a JNLP file, you've got to download it and run it thereafter. Am I right ?

Also, I've taken note of the Firefox ESR release "too late". I've installed the "mainstream" Firefox release on a server in order to be remotely used by end users (via a RDS server, only to browse a internal website, they can't browse the web). What are the results/differences/cons (except the extended support) ?

Thanks in advance for your replies. Jo.

Hello, I'm using Firefox 81.0.2 on Ubuntu 20.04. I have a local html page with link formatted link that : ssh://server.domain.com If I type in a terminal : xdg-open ssh:/server.domain.com No problem it works as intended, however in Firefox it doesnt if I use xdg-opn to open a link starting with ssh. I suspect it comes from the fact that meanwhile my links are written like that : <area shape="rect" coords="1428,438,1463,495" href="ssh://server.domain.com" alt="" onmouseover="showTooltip('n14')" onmouseout="hideTooltip()"> when putting my mouse over the link it appears in the bottom left corner as: ssh://server.domain.com/ That trailing slash is most likely the problem ssh:// mime shouldn't consider / to be anything more that a caracter and I don't blame xdg-open here, but why would firefox add a trailing slash to a link while it's not written in the html file in the first place ? Hope any one will have an answer.

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.
