Hi,

I noticed that the shortlinks/websites on my startpage (the House icon) are placing cookies as soon as I start Firefox. Not all of them and also in a random manor. This does not happen in Private Navigation, which i almost never use.

For me this is rather strange, I do not visit these shortlinks and already being tracked by those cookies. How can this be changed?

My settings are to clear all cookies and history at closure. Subquestion: Do I need to choose Options/Close or does this also work by clicking the X in the right upperhand corner to close Firefox.

Hope someone can shed some light... Lasco

In French ('English underneath) J'essaye d'organizer mes marque pages 1)Je tape sur supprimer, la page revient à la prochaine application 2)Je crée un dossier. Dans des versions anterieures de Firefox, on pouvait simplement bouger les fiches avec controle>fleche jusqu'a le dossier. (Il n,y avait pas le separateur <autres marques pages>) Avant l'essai de reorganization, <autres marques pages> contenait la plupart des fiches, les marques pages normales (bouton >>je presume) contenait seulement une demi douzaine choisis au hazard. Apres l'installation des dossiers, <autres marque pages> contient seulement les dossiers, bouton >> toutes les fiches. Il est impossible de transferer de bouton >> jusqu'a <autres marque pages>, afin d'incluire les fiches dans un dossier.

I am trying to organize my bookmarks. 1)I press the delete button, the page comes back next time I open the computer 2)I create a file folder. In previous versions of Firefox ,there was no separator between bookmarks (button>> I assume) and <other bookmarks>, and one could transfer a file into a folder using control and the arrow. Before I tried to organize the bookmarks, <other bookmarks>for some reason contained nearly all my files, the button >> only a few chosen at hazard. Having created file folders, <other bookmarks> contains the folders, button >> all the files. It is impossible to transfer from button>> into the folders in <other bookmarks>.

Hello! I'm trying to configure Firefox not to switch from the current tab, when I open multiple bookmarks by either middle click bookmark folder or right click the bookmark folder and select Open All Bookmarks. I've already set about:config browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground True browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground True browser.tabs.loadInBackground True

If I'm browsing a page, and then decide to open several bookmarks that are in a bookmark folder, either via middle click or right click->Open All Bookmarks, Firefox will still switch to the first open bookmark.

I've tried Shift+Middle click and this one opens the bookmarks, without switching from the current tab. And Ctrl+Shift+right click->Open All Bookmarks and this one opens the bookmarks, without switching from the current tab.

So how do I configure Firefox to just use middle click on a bookmark folder, and then not have it switch to the first open bookmark? Thank you!

New computer, new install, when trying to log in to my account to set up sync/migrate, Firefox claims the password is incorrect ... the same password I just used on this (old) computer to log in and ask this question!

I've had issues with this before, when I synced up my phone. Took several attempts to log it in.

Also, tried changing password, but for some reason it won't accept a new one? (That's different issue. Would prefer to log in with current password. at least)

Thanks!

The solution given by cor-el works very well.

Thanks cor-el ! I needed that.

But you won't know it until you access more unique folders than you already have in the list.

For instance, when you access the 8th folder that is different it will be sticky, when you access a 9th that is different it will be sticky. Kind of like a "most recently used" list. You won't see the extras until they happen.

Solution given by Cor-el: There is a pref on the about:config page that defaults to 7 to set the number of entries to show in this list of recently used folders.

- about:config => browser.bookmarks.editDialog.maxRecentFolders = 7
- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox

Thanks again,

I have moved to another password manager, and would like to completely remove my saved logins from my Firefox account and stop using the auto-fill, auto-suggest feature. However, no matter how many times I delete my passwords and Sync, they keep appearing in my Android Firefox app. I have cleared the app Storage and Cache, I have reinstalled it from scratch, but no matter what I do they reappear. My (also Synced) PC on which I deleted the passwords has not shown it again since I deleted them there.

I just want to completely delete all my logins in my Firefox account, permanently and across all my devices. How can I do this?

I'm having a problem logging into one of my banking sites. I talked to the bank tech support yesterday and did a password reset. There was nothing wrong with my old password. That worked yesterday but today I'm back to the same problem. It won't log me in.

I deleted cookies and cleared cache but still not logging me in. I tried another browser (Edge) and got right in. In Firefox, I use private mode to log into financial accounts but I also tried the regular browser and still won't let me in. This is the only account I have a login problem with. It did work after the password reset if that's a clue but I don't want to have to do that every day just to check my account.

Here is the site:

https://www3.citizensbankonline.com/efs/servlet/efs/login.jsp

I need a fix for this. It's very inconvenient and it is the only account I have a problem logging into with Firefox.

Thanks for the help.

I used to be able to show speed dial bookmarks on my home page, as many rows as I had spd dial bkmks, like 30 or so. Now I cant even get speed dial to show anywhere anyway. I really want it on my home page, so when I launch FF or open a new tab, it auto shows all my speed dial bkmks. Please restore this functionality. We should not need some special extension to do this. It should be an option off the Settings tab

I use Bomgar / Beyond Trust for remote support for my Linux system. The bomgar file that I download is a .desktop file. Ever since Firefox version 119, this file no longer downloads correctly. Instead of getting a .desktop file, I now get a .desktop.download file and the file will not run. This appears to be an issue with Firefox because the file downloads and runs correctly if I use Chrome. It also worked just fine in Firefox before version 119. Any help that you can provide would be greatly appreciated

A certain set of plaintext files are rendered in a weird way when opened in Firefox.

Some plaintext files are rendered "MS Gothic", which is the default monospace font for plaintext files in Japanese encoding. (Also, if I change font.name-list.monospace.ja to "monospace", the font changes).

However, the files are not in Japanese encoding, they do not contain a single character in Japanese encoding. Since the files are local, they have no HTTP headers to determine the encoding, so Firefox must have guessed the encoding somehow. How can I stop firefox from detecting those files as Japanese while they are not?

Also, I noticed that this issue happens only with long files. The shorter a file, the less likely it is that Firefox renders the file as if it had Japanese encoding.

Since I cannot reproduce the issue with smaller files and the files contain confidential information, I am unable to provide a minimal reproducer.

As a workaround, I could change font.name-list.monospace.ja, but this would change (potentially break) rendering of Japanese websites.

I'm using Firefox 124.0.1 on Windows 10, although this issue has been present for at least some months (at least 4 firefox releases).

The screenshot shows an excerpt where the text "C:\Temp\2024-" is partially rendered with Japanese glyphs and fully rendered with "MS Gothic" font which is hard to read with ASCII characters.

PS: I [censored] some of the information in the "Troubleshooting Information" field below.
