OK. That was rather obtuse. I ended up deleting all the plugins that had "Access MY data for all websites."

WHY? Because the permission was NOT CLEAR nor did it elucidate what exactly does the Add-On have of MY data.

Is "My DATA" the HTML portion? The JavaScript? The URLBOX? Data store? WHAT EXACTLY is "MY DATA"?

I use Firefox sync to share logins and passwords between my home and work computer. I set this up a few years ago. Now I want to sync another computer, but I don't remember the sync password. I believe it's written in a code book in my office, which has been closed due to Covid 19 since March. How can I change my sync password while preserving my login and password info? Many of my passwords were generated by Firefox and not something I would ever remember.

I can see my current logins and passwords on a sync enabled computer, so in theory I can copy and re-enter them all. But there are hundreds, and that would many hours. If I was willing to do this, is there a way that I can enter the logins and passwords into a table in Firefox without having to visit every website, log in, and re-save the login info? At this point my only two options seem to be to not use my sinced profile on that computer, or to spend all day manually setting everything up again. Thanks.

I do not remember activating a "primary password.' I live alone and no one uses my computer. But now it's asking me to enter my primary password to get into my passwords list. It says if I forgot (which I didn't) I will lose ALL my passwords. Can anyone help me? I definitely don't want to start all over with all of those passwords. email: [removed]

Firefox in Site Specific Browser Mode not expanding my dropdowns with the Mouse Click.

I am launching a website in the Site Specific Browser (-ssb) mode from a command line.

Command Line: firefox.exe -ssb https://appsrv38-eam.rizing.io:443/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/vesta/ge_lam_c/index.html?sap-client=200&&geoid=FLG01AGP&&lrpid=0100000032&&sapobject=NO&&strno=U-G-D-OH-M-44224-028

This site has dropdowns (HTML Select Elements):

<select class="inputInfo" id="objTypes" ></select>  

After I launch the website the dropdowns will not expand with a mouse click. I have posted a screenshot of the site. If it is launched in -ssb mode the dropdowns will not expand. If I launch the site in -kiosk mode or with a normal Firefox browser the dropdowns expand fine. Everything works as it should. Its just with the -ssb mode that I am having these issues. I am populating the dropdowns with some Javascript but I have used normal HTML to populate the dropdowns as well but neither will expand in -ssb mode.

If anyone has any idea of why this is happening please let me know.

Thanks, Ray

In Windows 10, in a tablet environment, things aren't working properly. I'm referring primarily to the onscreen keyboard. In Windows Tablet mode, an onscreen keyboard should appear in address bar and text fields. Firefox is killing that onscreen keyboard. The keyboard appears, but then immediately disappears. There also is a visual glitch occurring in the title-bar simultaneous with the killing of the OSK (on screen keyboard). This only happens in Firefox. OSK in MS Edge functions great for example. In desktop mode, but still physically in a tablet environment (Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga X1, folded, portrait mode for example), no OSK appears at all anywhere. This is not working well for me and will likely be a problem for others as we continue to approach the future. I truly hope that Firefox prioritizes Windows 10 tablet environments. It really is going to be important to many users.

I am running firefox 82.0, 64bit. I came home today and when i opened firefox to my home page, the primary theme/background is the same, but the text boxes are now pure white. I had them set to a brown color, and chrome shows my homepage with the correct text box color of brown. I have tried using Options/fonts and colors, and it does nothing. What do I need to do to get the text box backgrounds back to a more soothing contrast color?

I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

Hi! I am opening this help, because for some months, that I have been using Firefox on Kubunto, it is impossible to log into Google. YouTube is the way I left it in Print. And it has a plogin that doesn't update for anything. Which is the Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.

This has brought me a lot of frustration when using firefox on Kubunto. But as I use the system only on the Pen Drive, I have no plans to install Chorme. Because I need the system only there and now.

Of course, I tried in many ways to correct my problem. I even formatted this Kubunto system. I tested with other linux systems. But they all have a problem with the same plugin, in firefox.

Could someone help me with this problem? I always used everything normal. It only started to happen about 3 months ago.

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?
