Why is it so hard to keep cookies and let Firefox delete others? Privacy is the hallmark of Firefox, and yet this simple task is so difficult that I have completely given up. It should be so simple that anyone can do it. Take a look at Cookie Quick Manager which lets you select right off the extension area. With Firefox, I have to dig down into the menus, then actually key in a web site. Fixing this and continuing to enhance cookie management should be top of mind.

Frequent crashes. I've run Onyx. Reset extensions. Reinstalled firefox. I've been using google maps frequently, so I switched to safari and that crashed too. Trying chrome now -- no problem yet. I'm wondering if GPU is at fault. I've ramped up cooling based on GPU. Still crashing. Tried holding down D and option D to test ram but I just get a command line on a non-responsive screen.

Hello,

I reinstalled Windows the other day because my PC didn't work anymore. The reinstallation worked but sadly I lost a lot of data because of it, for example my Firefox Bookmark Back Up files from before the 28th of October 2021...

I was sorting my bookmarks and by mistake I imported the bookmarks of 28th of October which I assume was automatically saved.

Now I lost all my bookmarks dating years into my online history.

Is there anyway to get back my bookmarks? Since I am synced and logged into my firefox account I just can't believe everything is gone just because of one button that didn't even ask for confirmation...I am devastated..

Thanks in advance

I don’t know. I changed my default browser in settings but Safari continues to show up on my iPhone.

I downloaded Google Authenticator but I don’t know what to do with it. I’m terribly confused! I just don’t know what I’m doing, and I don’t know what I am supposed to do. I did get a recovery key however. Please help me if you can. I get so confused when I read your instructions. The instructions say to click on so and so and I don’t know what to do or where to find what I’m supposed to click on.

Hi all, I am the backend developer for a website that our company hosts. I want to have Firefox be fully supported in our site but we are having an issue when we try to redirect from our home page to our SSO okta page.

The error in the console is that it can't find the route to our login endpoint. When I looked into it a bit further I saw that we were getting a 504 gateway timeout while trying to run that section of code.

I know the route exists and works because we have no problems when using Chrome based browsers, and Firefox loads just fine while in private mode.

Any help is appreciated. I will furnish code snippets if needed. I'm just not quite sure how to proceed with figuring out what's going on.

The site is https and we have CORS enabled for it in our Okta server

Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if I haven't provided enough information.

Thanks, Brian O

Greetings!

I have Firefox for my browser and the home page is set to my.yahoo.com.

I cleared my browser and lost all my my.yahoo.com home page bookmarks and customized yahoo mail folders. I still have my Firefox bookmarks.

Can I retrieve the lost emails and bookmarks that were on yahoo? I did try restoring a previous Firefox version and also opening Firefox on a different browser, (Internet Explorer), and tried using a different computer, but Yahoo mail and bookmarks are still missing.

I had firefox on my computer a long time ago but uninstalled it. I reinstalled it and it will not open. I did a refresh and it would not work. I went through and deleted the following folders to no avail upon fresh install from https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/

Deleted folders: AppData/Local/Mozilla AppData/LocalLow/Mozilla AppData/Roaming/Mozilla Program Files/Mozilla Firefox ProgramData/Mozilla

Upon fresh installs trying to boot into safe mode results in a window briefly flashing in the taskbar and closing immediately. There's no message or anything asking if I want to boot it into safe mode. I don't care about keeping previous data for Firefox like profiles or bookmarks. I do not know what else to do.

I am on macOS Mojave and since the last Firefox update, I have been experiencing problems when printing a PDF attachment in my email. When I open the attachment, it opens in html which is fine. Then when I click print, a new tab opens with the printer settings, etc. but Firefox also launches a new browser, not just a new tab in the same browser. I have tried to change the print settings, reset the print settings, etc. but it has not helped. I can print the same attachment in another browser, such as chrome or safari without any issues.

The attached image shows my browser in the background with the pdf and printer window open in one tab and then the newly launched browser in the foreground which is blank.
