Installed Firefox 122 in a new Windows 10 installation and added some extensions (e.g. Gesturefly, Update Scanner, uBlock Origin, Uppity). These pinned fine on my old installation. But I cannot find how to pin them on the new.

All the help I have found Googling, or using search here, says go to the Add-ons Manager page and right-click the extension and use "pin to toolbar". Alternatively click the extension and click the gear icon and use "pin to toolbar". But when I right-click there is no pin to toolbar context menu entry. If I left-click the gear I get "Check for Updates, View Recent Updates, Install Add-on From File, Debug Add-ons, Update Add-ons Automatically, Reset All Add-ons to Update Automatically, Manage Extension Shortcuts". If I right-click the gear I get a line of icons (left, right, reload, star) followed by "Open Image in New Tab, Copy Image Link, Email Image, Save Page As, Select All, View Pate Source, Inspect Accessibility Properties, Inspect (Q)". If I right-click the extension in the Add-ons Manager page itself, I get a very similar list. In no case is there a pin to toolbar option.

How do I pin an extension, given the above? What have I messed up?

Support,

The USPS website does not work properly with Firefox!! The Home page loads okay but there are multiple other issues with links not working. For instance all of the links under Quick Tools do not work except this one: https://www.usps.com/manage/po-boxes.htm. Other things don't work either.

Everything works fine that I tried with Google Chrome though! Please address soon.

Thanks

I would like to select and delete a subset of user names and passwords in Firefox. I have a group of about 80 logins for an old account which I no longer use. I know I can delete individual logins one at a time but doing this 80 times is a pain!

I can search for the particular account in the password list and Firefox lists them all, which is great. What I would like to do then is right click and select all followed by delete.

Is there a shortcut somewhere?

How can I set tabs to automatically preload when I open the browser? I'm just trying to switch from Chrome to Firefox and I can't find such a setting here, although it is a very convenient functionality. I mean that when I open the browser, I can click on any of the tabs and it will be (partially or completely) immediately ready to work without additional loading.

I'm trying to use a manual proxy server for Firefox. When entering the proxy address and port number, Firefox outlines the port number field in red and disables the OK button thus refusing to accept my assigned port number. I'm trying to use port number 29842 which was given to me by the proxy provider.

For some reason I updated to win 11 and now Firefox won't let me login to mercadolibre, it will display the login screen, take my username, send me to the password window, enter my password but won't go anywhere from there. The curious thing is that Edge will log me in without any issue and if I do the same thing with Firefox using a private windows it will let me login but Mercadolibre will always ask me to scan a code with my phone which makes the process longer and tedious.

I cleared all the cookies from my system to no avail.

This is a problem that I have since months, still unresolved. If I try using a different browser (like Brave) it works, so it's a Firefox issue or Apple issue with Firefox.

Basically if I go to https://web.goodnotes.com/login and I login via iCloud, a window opens up which asks me iCloud email and password, then it asks me for the sms code received, then I put it and then I get a BLANK page (the image that I uploaded) with in up right corner "Login performed as my name". And then nothing happens. But instead with Brave it opens up the Apple authorization to accept the Browser and then I finally can enter in Goodnotes web. With Firefox I'm stuck in that blank white page.

Since it's an issue that I have since months, I think I should report this and here I am.

When streaming a video and using PiP, after opening another window or program and then pausing said video that is currently being played on the PiP player window, sometimes this causes the actual video itself being played via the PiP player window to freeze. So the video is paused and I want to resume play but when clicking the 'play' button on the PiP player window the video refuses to play.

The only way to clear this bug is to click the 'close' button or the 'back to tab' button on the PiP player window and then refresh the actual web page. After refreshing the web page and repeating the same steps - the PiP player window works just fine with playing and pausing, but it's annoying that I have to do this.

I am having an issue where youtube videos played at higher quality stutter when put to fullscreen. Up till about 720p60 works fine, at 1080p60 and above the framerate becomes unstable.

Things I have tried: - I have tried going into media.media-capabilities.enabled and changing it from false to true - I have set network.buffer.cache.size to 262144 - I have disabled all my plugins - I have tried changing my user agent to windows/chrome

My current setup: Firefox 122.0, Macbook pro Sonoma 14.1, Apple M1 Pro chip

Curiously, if I make a new firefox profile and play a video there, there is no stutter. Does anyone have ideas on how I can fix my current profile?

For some reason, Firefox just stopped working yesterday. The only way I could get it to work again was to uninstall and reinstall (the refresh option did not work). However, now I've lost all my bookmarks, passwords and customization. I don't care about the customization and losing the bookmarks is an annoyance, but I'd REALLY like to get my passwords back. The installation created a folder of Old Firefox data, but when I open the folders that I think might be helpful, like bookmarkbackups, they are empty. Is there anywhere else I can look where these might have been saved? I did not have a Mozilla account so no profile until now which I just set up in order to access the forum. Thanks for any help you can provide.

Trying to stream shows on Firefox and video does not start / errors out. Philo returns with this error: Philo is having trouble streaming this content.

[Error code: pf-1.5-5bb2f]

Paramount+ Also freezes up and returns error message. As does Amazon Prime.

Adblockers disabled. Youtube is fine.

Tried refreshing Firefox / renistalling but same error. Prefer to use Firefox as default browser but having to go to Google to stream shows.

Debating rolling back a version but it was working fine the other day but could have had an update and didn't notice and now streaming is erroring out.

Suggestions? Thanks.

I have the following settings in Settings/Preferences>General:

Files and Applications

Downloads Save all files in the following folder: Downloads Ticked Ask every time where to save a file

Applications Portable Document Format (PDF): Open in Firefox How should Firefox deal with other files? Ticked Ask whether to open or save files

On specific websites when I click on a pdf link, Firefox opens and automatically saves the file to Downloads folder without asking whether to save and where to save despite the above settings. As far as I remember, on other websites when clicking a pdf link Firefox only opens the corresponding file and doesn't save.

I found this with a internet search https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/stop-saving-pdfs-to-downloads-when-viewing-in-firefox/td-p/10225.

How can it be disabled that Firefox automatically saves PDFs?

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

Every time I open Firefox after closing it, I get the message below. I can click the button to restore session and it works every time. With each update, I hope to never see this message again, but after installing a new version on Ubuntu today, I see the same familiar message. This is not linked to a computer, or an operating system because I've seen this on both Ubuntu and Mac. If Firefox could literally just click the button that would be awesome.

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.
