I cannot find an old Firefox folder. I have looked in profile and found 2 logins.json files, dated 21.03 & 09.03, the earlier says corrupt, have copied both together with the sqlite file. How do I open these files to check them ? Tried Firefox in Safe Mode, still no logins. Help would be appreciated, thank you

When I access amazon.com, it first loads the page in Firefox properly, then once the page loads it force opens the Amazon android app, which I certainly don't want. I turned off Amazon handling links in android settings, but it still keeps happening without even a prompt. Please help me turn this obnoxious behavior off.

Hello,

I have tried adding several different extensions to firefox and they do not seem to work. So, I am beginning to think that this is a problem with firefox rather than with the companies that create the extensions.

Liner extension: I added the extension to firefox and have set up an account. But each time I try to use it to highlight text in a webpage, it asks me to sign up in order to use the extension. If I press OK, it will then lead me to the sign up page, I enter my account detail to log in. It logs in successfully. But then when I go back to use the extension, it continues to ask me to sign up. If I press OK again, it again guides me to the sign up page, except that the page immediately refreshes to my account's page since it remembers I already have signed in! But the extension still doesn't work!

Similar situations with grammarly and google translate.

I am working on a project to be able to parse all extensions installed on a computer for each user profile on the computer. I have researched what I can, and haven't really found a good method of doing so. I was hoping that you may be able to assist me with a PowerShell (or the like) script that can be run which would output that type of information?

Thanks!

When I'm in Firefox watching videos on Youtube or listening Soundcloud and trying to increase volume with the standard shortkey (fn+f12) on my Asus Zenbook, this causes tab to go back one page. However I noticed this happens right at the moment when I'm pressing the combination, so if I'm pushing the buttons continiously it happens only once. Seems, that I have no such a problem in other apps. Firefox is up to date ( ver 70.0.1 on Dec 1st 2019). Laptop model UX410UAR, running Win 10. I also have Autohotkey running in the background to hold absent numpad keys. However turning it off doesn't change the behaviour. Any advise, please?

I'm a software developer working on backend services, always juggling between Firefox and Chrome (because none of them fully satisfy my needs). What I need from them is to behave the way it will be most practical for me, which isn't necessarily aligned with the majority of users.

My current problem is this. I work with APIs which in my daily work often return various HTTP errors. These errors also contain a payload which describes the problem in detail. I want to be able to see this payload easily in the browser. Yes, I can use other tools like Postman for this (which I do), but for simple GET requests without special request headers it would be much more practical to just use a browser.

Currently, when my API opens an error (for example a 400 Bad Request), Firefox decides to just silently go back into the previous page (undos the URL change). If I open the Network tab in the Web Developer view, I can however see the failing response with all of its details. Still, this is too impractical for me.

BTW, the response contains a custom Content-Type which isn't recognized by Firefox by default. But Firefox isn't downloading the payload as a file (like it would usually do for a successful page load of an unknown Content-Type), it just silently doesn't do anything. I've installed an extension to handle my custom Content-Types (called "Open in Browser"), but since Firefox isn't attempting to open this one, I can't use it in this case.

So, how can I force Firefox to stay on that URL and show the response payload in the window? If not in vanilla Firefox, any plugins? I've already kind of spent too much time on this for my liking. :/

I've just switched to Firefox as Chrome keeps lagging. I'm running Fedora 31 and the latest version of Firefox 76.0.1.

When I use the 2 fingered scrolling and take my fingers off the touchpad, the page keeps scrolling until it slowly slows down and eventually stops or hits the end of the page. It doesn't then stop when I place my fingers back on the touchpad, so it just carries on regardless to another part of the page. It's ludicrous as it just goes past whatever I'm trying to look at! If I keep my fingers on the touchpad it stays put but as soon as I take them off, it's off on it's jollies again.

Is there anyway to disable this? I've unchecked smooth scrolling and autoscrolling. I've never had Firefox behave like this before on any Linux distro.

Since Firefox was update I can't download pdfs from the sites I have to use for work. If there is anyone who is willing to work with me or can fix the issue I’d appreciate it. However, your help system has simply left me flat at this point since it seems to have a no-contact, hands-off policy.

My Firefox setting is to clear history on closing, so every instance of Firefox is a new instance with no history - closed out and tried again after the pdfs refused to download the first time Tried to update plugin for Adobe Acrobat - didn't work Tried to let Firefox update all plugins itself - didn't work Tried all fixes for pdfs in help lookups, including resetting Firefox, changing to use Firefox previewer, etc. Created exception to popup blocking for Costco vendor website Removed popup blocking entirely Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox

By the way, your image upload failed miserably. I was going to upload a pdf showing the conversation trail between the Costco help desk and myself regarding the pdfs, but the upload of the image hung.

Also, I had a user account created, and it wouldn't let me log in. Updated password but same thing - no dice. Closed out of Friefox, went back in, still no luck. Re-set password again, but still not working. Have had to create a new personal account to get help. As a user am non-plussed by your non-support.

Any help will be appreciated. If no help forthcoming then my company will uninstall Firefox from every PC - it's currently our default browser but we can't afford non-productive time with a non-working browser.

Thanks, Beth Asher

In the previous version of Firefox, I was able to move the address bar up to the right of the menu bar, along with useful control icons and some bookmark icons. In the new Firefox 57 Quantum, this doesn't work from the Customise panel- the address bar stays below the tabs, wasting vertical space. How can I shift the address bar back to where I want it?

If it turns out that it is not possible to move the address bar up, then WHY? Is it a bug? Is it an omission? Will it be corrected? Or is it intended to remove this very useful feature, and if so, for what possible reason?

I've had a problem on a particular page on my website that has resisted all attempts at analysis and fixing for years: the page renders in Western font in my FF browser (in all my PCs), whilst in a colleague's browser (from another country) it renders fine in Unicode. It also renders fine in Unicode on my PC when using Chrome, and Edge, and Opera. Only Firefox is a problem.

I would be happy if I could just tell FF to render every single page I ever visit in Unicode by default. But I have go to View > Text Encoding > Unicode every single time I visit this page.

For info, I'll paste everything in the page before the <body> tag:


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"> <head> <title>xxx</title> <base href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/admin/Gross_Profit_Reports.html"></base> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/reset.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/text.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css?revision=1794" type="text/css" /> <link rel="shortcut icon" href="https://www.xxx.com/templates/en/images/favicon.gif" /> <script src="../js/jquery-1.9.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script src="../js/jquery.stickytableheaders.min.js"type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script src="../js/sspextras.js" type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8"></script> <script type="text/javascript" src="../js/common.js"></script> <meta charset="utf-8"></head>


Although we use <meta charset="utf-8"> now, we've previously had it as <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">, but that has been similarly unsuccessful.

I'm happy to make changes on the browser side in the webpage, but I really want to solve this. Grateful for any help.
