It seems that FF can only remember 2 rows or fields of login forms. When I fill a login form that has 3 or more fields FF only remembers and stores 2 fields. Looking at the stored user/password data (about-security-login) there are only 2 fields stored: username and passwords. what happens where a website wants 3 fields to be filled in? Is this cannot be stored by FF?

I am still using the good old Firefox v56.0.2 because of its awesome addons that NEVER got replaced in new Firefox.

I installed now as a test Firefox v78 in order to test the functionality and what i STRONGLY miss are:

a) When i hover with the mouse(and NOT click into it) to a tab for a specific amount of time I can set, then tab is being selected. That can be done with the powerful Tab Mix Plus addon in old Firefox.

b) When i right click in the page i had the option to save all images of this tab/of all tabs in the left or right and saving them in ANY FOLDER of my preference. I can do that with the Save Images 1.3.0 addon in old Firefox.

c) There was a display closed tabs list button that if you click it ONCE it makes the most recently closed tab to load and when you click the tiny ↓near it, you had a list of recently closed tabs you could choose anyone to reload.

d) How to make buttons more customizable(bigger) and with colors and themes? That minimalist design sucks for my taste and i want it to be fully configurable. I am using the beaufitul Noia theme for buttons etc in my old Firefox.


WIthout these features i cannot live with the new Firefox and i will uninstall it. Old Firefox was so much more beautiful and handy. Unless there are solutions to these.

I was transferring my data from an older version of Firefox to the new version and always have enabled Firefox sync.

While setting up the new browser, I uninstalled an extension that had my settings from the new browser and it was automatically uninstalled from the older browser too.

Since I use Firefox sync, I want to know if it's possible to restore a restore the extension data from a specific time (before I deleted it). Trying to sync only restores it after the extension was deleted.

One of the reasons I'm still using 56 is that the start page preference and home page preference are separate. I can set the browser to start with a blank page, but then if I wish to quickly go to my home page I can just click on the icon in the address bar. Don't know why this feature was downgraded in the new versions, but I'd like to update - so how can I make this be so in the new version of Firefox? I want to set the start page different from the home page like 56.

I am using FF56 and still not prepared to upgrade to post 56. Until recently I would see embedded videos and pictures in some forums, which now appear grey or the post seems to have a big gap to the end. If I click on the grey area, the picture will appear when I click on it.

I have contacted the sites and they blame FF stating, that no new algorithms are in use.

Does anyone know why this may have happened and how I can fix this?

My Scroll-To-Top is not working anymore since the last update was installed. STT is 4.9.1 and I am using FF56.0.2 64 bit. I configure STT and it says saved at the top, but when FF reopens nothing was saved. Can anyone point me to the xpi download of a previous version please.

I have kept FF v. 56.0.2 because of certain add-ons that I have come to rely upon. That version is shared by all users. However, I would like to add the newest version for a second user. How can I install the current version for only the second user without affecting v 56.0.2 for the primary user?

Addons and Extensions Pages Blank after Reset; Extensions Not Showing in Search

I'm running FF 56.0b9 (64 bit) on Windows 10. It got really slow and laggy. Like multiple seconds of latency after I type to see the letters and tabbing fields. I cleared the cache hoping it would fix but still the same.

Then I couldn't comment on Youtube or open the drop down under my Youtube account icon. It would just show a blank section with a spinning wheel. So I gave up and decided to reset FF.

After I reset FF, I went to look for my extensions and addons to reinstall them and when I click on the Addons puzzle piece icon in FF, it opens up a new tab with a blank page (see attached) with the addons menu items on the left (Addons, Extensions, Appearance, Plugins, Services) and a white main page with a grey box that says What are addons? After explaining what they are, at the bottom it says "when you are connected to the internet, this pane will feature the best addons for you to try out."

When I click the Extensions menu item on the left, it takes me to another blank page (screenshot attached) that says "You don't have any addons of this type installed" with a button that says "Learn more about addons". When I click that, it takes me to the previous page.

The search box in the upper right yields no results no matter what I type in there.

How can I get to that page that shows all the different addons and extensions where I can search for the ones that I need so I can install them?

Thanks.

Generally, my Waterfox browser is great. Except when browsing Facebook pages. I'm at that site a lot, and if I'm uploading pictures, and roaming from page to page, after awhile the browser will slow down, or not respond at all > Task manager > Close browser > Restart > Repeat (a half hour or so later). I have absolutely no problems with any other sites I visit with this browser, just Facebook (and no problems with Facebook using Chrome or Edge). Thoughts and/or suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.

I recently migrated all of my files and applications from a 2013 macbook retina pro that had FF 56.0.2 to a 2020 macbook retina pro. The application transferred over with no problems with one exception. I have a blog on livejournal.com and now cannot post or reply to comments on the blog. FF just hangs and freezes. I can't even quit the page unless I quit FF totally and then restart. I can still access livejournal from Safari w/no problems. I checked my extensions (only have two) and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing has helped. Does anyone have any suggestion? I'm not crazy about safari and would like to continue to use FF. Thanks so much for any help!

When I turned on my computer today there is now a green, puzzle piece button placed at the end of my searchbar. See attached When I click on it it says Polly. What is this for ? Why is it showing up now? Do I need it? I'm running Waterfox Classic, but there was no support tab for Waterfox, only Firefox, that's why I had to post the question here. Thank you

I have an urgent problem. I am about to loose access to my existing primary and secondary emails, as i have been forced to try to change to a new email provider. I set up with Gmail and it was working fine until I updated windows on the 20th. Now I cannot log in I get the following error massage:

Corrupted Content Error The site at https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?pli=1 has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired. The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because an error in the data transmission was detected. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

I have searched online and deleted my google cookies and cleared my cache without effect. I am getting desperate to get this fixed. My new ISP does not provide email addresses but I need two of them one for myself and one for my mother. I have been told that my existing emails my be deleted as early as 30th March 2021. I have been trying to get these new emails in place for nearly three months and I feel like this is the last straw.

I know I am using an old version of Firefox, but I need to keep my old style extensions as I use them to help me with my visual disability.

Yours Desperately, Kaelkitty

It seems that there isn't an add on out there for Firefox that mimics the download status bar like in Chrome-based browsers. Not one of them are able to open files from the status bar. All of them open a window for what ever reason. Is it because bad coding on the add on dev part, or is this a limitation of Firefox itself. If it is the former, where can I start and work backwards to make one myself. If it is the later, will this ever be a feature?

Hallo,

I have two firefox profiles with which I wish to share bookmarks. An easy solution is to create a symbolic link replacing the one places.sqlite file with a link to the file in the other profile, thus we're always just using one set of bookmarks and all is happy. However, Firefox keeps overriding my link; labeling the file "corrupt" and replacing it with a cached version. I need to know how to stop firefox from overriding my input and respect the changes made in the profile folder. I need to disable whatever mechanism is going on that is checking the files and reconstituting them.

                                Tak!

Hallo,

My previous thread was archived, but further regression has occurred so I'll bring it up here again as feature requests are down. I'm still using 56 one reason being that there are separate control options for the start page and the home page. I like to start with a blank page, but have the home button available for my #1 destination. The current version of firefox combines start and home pages, thus taking away my options to separate these elements. For a while it wasn't in the GUI, but you could fix it in the about:config (which was my previous "solution"), but with the latest updates this has been removed as well.

How do I get separate start and home pages? If I could assign a value to the home icon that didn't affect the start page, that would work too.

         Tak!
