Lately I have been unable to access links sent to me via gmail - when I click on them nothing happens. Even if I cut and paste them into Microsoft Edge they do not work, although I can open websites in the normal manner.

Sorry I asked the question in the title. I cannot open links in emails or on websites sometimes. I am using Firefox but even if I paste the link into Microsoft Edge the link will not work. I do not know why and it has only started happening lately - within the last month or so. Any advise gratefully received. Maybe it is my system or settings or Firefox or Bitdefender. I am a techophobe so please bear that in mind when you respond. Thank you

Bookmark details for my bookmarks are suddenly missing. I still see the list of bookmark folders, and within each folder I still see the list of bookmark names. But the navigation details (i.e., URLs) for each bookmark are nowhere to be seen. Nothing happens when I click on a bookmark.

What could have happened? Is there a way to recover that information? (Unfortunately I don't have an up-to-date bookmark backup.)

Hi, in just the past few days I've discovered that when I visit a website and set up a log-in ID and password, the password that Firefox Manager offers to save isn't being saved correctly. For example, say I use the password 143143, it saves it as something like 973973.

This has happened to me three times that I'm aware of (and I kept having to go back to Safari's saved passwords to find the correct ones, since I typically use randomly generated passwords.

I'm running macOS Mojave, 10.14.06, so I haven't changed the OS in well over a year. (I haven't updated as I have an SSD that's not APFS.) Any suggestions? Many thanks.

Hello

This just happen to me today and i dont know if i dont something in a setting or what is going on, but i have removed firefox and re-installed it to no avail.

The issue is for example this URL https://www47.myfantasyleague.com/2022/home/15387#0

The site loads without css coding and it looks like the attached image. WHITE and ugly...

It never used to be this way, and when i go into private mode, the site loads fine.

Anyone got any ideals what is going on?

Also chrome loads the site just fine in both modes.


Thank you

Hello,

a few weeks ago, I had to synchronize my firefox from the PC of a friend in order to access my bookmarks. His profile was a local one (w/o synchronization). My friend now needs to access several of his own bookmarks and passwords. I wanted to revert to the previous profile but cannot find a way to perform this. Could you please explain me the way to perform this without loosing the information of his profile?

Thank you very much in advance.

Best regards from Germany,

Duplicate Firefox profiles problem, MacOS

I am trying to 'fork' my FF, duplicating my profile on to a stick, then modify each one so that my work related bookmarks, saved passwords, cookies, history etc are in one profile, and my social/general bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc are in the other. I have done this and using about:profiles can open the non-default (USB stick) profile in a new window, or set the non default profile as default, close, re-open FF into the alternate profile. All good so far. However this isnt working quite as I expected. If I switch to alternate profile, save a bookmark to the shortcut bar, then switch back to the other profile then after a second or two the bookmark I saved in the other profile appears on the shortcut bar?!? This happens whether I have opened alt profile in a new window, or have changed the default profile and restarted FF into the other profile. Is this because in both instances it is using the same local directory? The doesnt seem to be an option to choose a different local directory for the alt profile. This would be ideal if possible as it would ensure that there are no data crumbs left on my PC when using the USB stick profile which is important for my work security. Any help really appreciated.

Today, web pages started showing small numbered boxes behind each element on a webpage. As you move down the page, the numbers are in sequence. I tried the font settings. They are all set at what they should be. I also tried the config settings, no joy. If I restart in troubleshooting mode, the boxes go away. Note: I am using Linux Mint, and Firefox just updated yesterday to V103.0.2. Any help would be appreciated.

I have the Distill Web Page Monitor Extension loaded. When I click on it, it shows me all the correct Monitors that I have configured. If I click on "Go to Watchlist" it's supposed to take me to the web management page where all the same Monitors should be shown. It takes me there but there are no Monitors visible. If I go to the webpage https://accounts.distill.io and log in then all the Monitors are correctly displayed. I note that the URL after I click on "Go to Watchlist" is moz-extension://xxxxxxxxxx/ui/inbox.html#inbox and not https://monitor.distill.io/#/w/0/list/all/ after I've logged in at https://accounts.distill.io.

Any suggestions please?

I'm running Distill Monitor Add-On version 1.18.6

Bookmark suggestions in URL bar: can I get suggestions only for exact URLs?

In Settings, I have configured "When using the address bar, suggest..." to use my Bookmarks, and nothing else.

Let's say I have a bookmark for the URL: https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/products/

If I start typing "moz", that bookmark appears in the suggestions, but the autocomplete also offers me the domain's "home" URL, https://www.mozilla.org.

I don't have that "home" URL bookmarked, so I don't want it to be suggested to me - as I told Firefox when I set "Bookmarks" as the only source of suggestions. Often when trying to navigate quickly to a bookmarked page, I assume that autocomplete will be giving me my bookmarked page, and end up accidentally going to the "home URL" instead.

So is there a setting that lets me keep my bookmark suggestions, but disable this "autocomplete with home URL" behaviour?

This isn't specific to mozilla.org: that URL was just an example.

I don't know if this is 'website breakage' or not, but I am unable to use the mouse wheel to zoom when using the Weather.com map page in Firefox. I've tried the same site in MS Edge and it works. I've also verified that I can zoom in and out of Google Maps when using Firefox, so the problem seems limited to Firefox and the Weather.com map page. Any thoughts? I've looked for settings, etc. that might impact the function, but couldn't find any. For further detail, the page appears to react briefly to the scroll wheel, and you see just a fraction of movement, but then it freezes at that magnification and I have to use the + and - icons on the page to zoom in or out. This is not a huge deal, but I don't understand what's happening and I'll take insight. Thanks.
