Hello, I have two questions about private windows.

First, on the Home tab it says: "Firefox clears your search and browsing history when you close all private windows"

but what happens if Firefox crashes during a private window session? Will some remnants of your activity remain in some files, as Firefox did not have the chance to clear data as it normally would when closed gracefully?

Second question, when in private mode, does Firefox write data to either favicons.sqlite or places.sqlite (even if only temporarily)?

Thanks.

Hello. First of all, does anyone know where a list of supported query terms for smart bookmarks could be found?

I already know some, such as "sort=" and "maxResults=", but would like to see a full list.

Second, would it be possible to use smart bookmarks to show a list of visited websites whose URLs match a pattern such as "food.com/*doughnuts*"? That is, all websites from food.com that also have the term doughnuts in the URL?

So, I have a couple of bookmarks folders with something like 200+ entries, with the folders themselves on my bookmarks toolbar. Previously, when I opened the folder from the toolbar, it would default to the last position observed, e.g. if I selected a bookmark from the middle, it'd open back up to the middle.

It's stopped doing that lately, and instead always opens to the top of the folder. I realize this sounds minor, but it's catastrophic for my use case. Anyone got any tips on how to make it revert to the previous behavior?

I am using Firefox Developer Edition Version: 110.0b5 (64-bit) on M1 Mac running Ventura 13.1.

I am building an webapp some XHR triggering in background but it is not necessary to run the application (running fine on other browsers). But on Firefox Developer Edition, It shows a error window with the message and stops loading the application.

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:4000.

localhost:4000 is the failing XHR request domain. I have attached the screenshot.

How to ignore the XHR failing errors just like other browsers?

I normally have my bookmarks showing to the left of the main window. I have many, in various header categories like medical, games, finance, etc. Recently I was doing some and wanted to close the bookmarks to give me more room for the main page. I THINK I did it very easily with a right click and close folder or some such thing. Worked great. I got to have more of my display to show on the page.

I am now incredibly frustrated that I can't get them back. I have done research and tried to follow the directions but can't get it to work. I have found Bookmark Tools and Options and I have "always show" checked. But I can't get my bookmarks back to the left of the main page where I can easily go to where I want to go.

I need help! Please. Very frustrating.

Firefox Stuck in Single-Tab Mode

So, a preface. I rarely used this PC of mine, and thus the Firefox is rarely used as well. When i installed it, i turned on the option 'Open previous windows and tabs'.

Then, once I opened up some kind of offline documentations from Libre Office or Latex, which opened in Firefox. You know, the one where there is no tab appeared, and it just seems like a single pop-up window. I closed it without thinking.

Long enough, i forgot about that and opened up Firefox only to be met with that docs again. Okay, i closed it. But Firefox always started in this kind of pop-up window style ever since (attached). Changing the preference, even deleting the profile doesn't seem to do a thing.

Any recommendation to return Firefox to its original set?

For information: OS: EndeavourOS with Linux 5.15.94 DE: Xfce 4.18 with Xfwm 4.18 Version: Latest, Firefox 110, installed from Arch Linux repository

Mouse scroll wheel not scrolling web page after installing Firefox version 110. I installed an older version, 98, and it worked again, but that version would not use my profile and it seemed to update itself to 110 and then scrolling was broken again. Am I alone or is everyone broken at version 110?

Maybe this is obvious and I just don't know the proper terms to find a solution, but I've recently lost the little loading icon that spins in the left hand corner of a tab when you load a site (see gif). No idea what happened to it, but I've tried refreshing and reinstalling to no avail. Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 10 on my machine (not because of this) and it worked correctly until I booted up this morning and it's switched back to that weird icon. Any ideas how I might fix it? Could something like a windows update have messed it up? I miss that little spinney icon more than I would have expected.

After updating to Firefox 110 (snap running under Ubuntu Studio 22.04) I get "No synced logins found". The settings still show me logged in to my Firefox account and my synced bookmarks are still there. The saved logins are still there in my Firefox 110 installation running under Windows 10. A similar problem was reported here: Surface Pro 8 recently had No Synced Logins Found while other devices do not have this issue but I am opening a separate thread because the OP gives the impression that this is platform-specific. I am afraid to do anything in the Firefox installation under Ubuntu, for fear of overwriting (i.e. deleting) the saved logins which I can still access on my Windows installation. How should I proceed?

Every time I restart Firefox, places.sqlite which is currently 105MBs changes to only 5MBs and a new file named places.sqlite.corrupt appears. If I open Firefox, all my history is gone. If I rename the .corrupt file to places.sqlite my history comes back. I want to know why it gets corrupted? It happens when Firefox closes and it doesn't matter if there's a power cut, closing with X , or Exit, Firefox restarts and I have to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt file again. This has been happening for almost two years now. My computer stays on 24/7 and I may restart it once every 2-3 months, but sometimes you have to restart it many times a day because of issues and it's a pain in the behind to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt every single time. Any ideas?! Could an add-on be affecting it? I don't have a lot of them. Just basic AdBlocks.

Thank you.

I am using DuckDuckGo with Firefox because I do not like auto suggestions filling up the search bar while I type. It's so annoying. I have ensured that Settings do not have auto complete in any way, but still they come. The only solution I can find on this website, which is Stop Auto Search in Firefox

There is a preference to change that back, but it does take a bit of work to find it because of the unusual name: (1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button accepting the risk. (2) In the search box in the page, type or paste handoff and pause while the list is filtered (3) Double-click the browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar preference to switch the value from true to false Success?

I had no success with it at all. Please, how can I stop this wretched feature? Thanks.
