Where did I see that article on XYZ. I'd like to regain a train of thought/investigation. Is bookmarks and history all there is? In reading about "Activity Stream" this seemed like the solution but it seems to lack an awareness of clustered, goal-directed activity. Is "Top Sites" and "Highlights" all there is to Activity Stream? Looking for some deeper integration/intelligence around re-displaying my history.

First thanks for all the help with ff when I had a dying system. Now setting up ff 59.0.2 on a windows 10 box and need a basic bit of information.

In the previous version I had I could type for instance, 'imdb' and hit ENTER then I'd be taken right to the imdb page. Now a search engine page opens up. Only way I can go directly to a site is if I type the entire address as in, http://www.imdb.com/ Either one of these ways of navigating are an inconvenience.

What do I have to do to get ff to a state where I can type the site name, say tigerdirect, hit ENTER and go right to http://www.tigerdirect.com/ ?

Thanks in advance.

I am seeing this issue in a lot of other threads and am having it myself. Unfortunately the only solution suggested is resetting the sync password and then repairing each computer individually. As a system admin with my bookmarks synced to roughly 150 computers, I think I'll pass on that solution and switch back to chrome. I prefer firefox in nearly every other way, so if a manageable solution becomes available I'd love to hear about it. Thanks.

Every once in a while, I go back and try something that worked in older versions of FF -- accepting some cookies and not accepting others.

In the current version, 59.0.3, I go to options, security and scroll down, I've added yahoo to my Exceptions to "allow" rather than "allow for session" and then set the general setting "keep until they expire". Now, this setup seems to be a way to whitelist only those sites I want to allow cookies, expiring others when I close FF -- as that's the most control I now have, the "ask every time" being gone. However, when I close FF and re-open, it hasn't kept the yahoo cookies as the exception implies it should.

How can I customize which cookies stay past the session and which don't?

I recently got an email certificate online, and I am trying to export it from Firefox into Windows. I went to the certificate store in Firefox, exported it to my desktop in a PKCS12 file, and tried to open it in Windows, but Windows thinks the password I used is wrong. It doesn't matter what password I use, whether it's copied out of KeePass or a simple dictionary. Am I missing something?

Hi,

I needed to export my password data into a secure addon that I use for firefox. Unfortunately for me, the addon wasn't compatible with QUANTUM.

I uninstalled the latest version, then installed:-

Firefox 56.0.2

logged in and synced, then went to my passwords after sync, to check if they were all in there. I found just on, the login to this account here.

I then uninstalled Firefox 56.0.2, and installed:-

Firefox 52.7.3esr

Again, after entering my account details for syncing, I checked the passwords. Again, just one showed up.

I uninstalled Firefox 52.7.3esr, and then reinstalled the latest firefox Quantum.

After entering my account details, and, syncing, I found all of my logins were showing.

I don't know why my logins are not showing for previous versions of firefox, but as you can see, I have tryed several different versions.

Could you help me with a workaround for this please? thank you

Example problem page: https://www.aljazeera.com/programmes/insidestory/2018/04/palestinian-journalists-targeted-israeli-snipers-180428181902831.html

When I press the play button in Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 (64-bit) playback is not instigated. Nothing happens. This has been occurring since I updated to Quantum. I cannot see that there are any add-ons / plugins I require to make the iFrame play.

Image 1 below shows the black iFrame screen that accompanies the malfunction in Firefox.

Image 2 below shows the IFrame screen as it appears in Google Chrome (in which the video playback is functioning normally).

Please help?

Hi, I've started noticing that I've to re-search a website which ff should know since half a year. Today I retried it and I can confirm that for example https://docs.rs/chrono/0.4.2/chrono/ never shows up in my history, in fact it's unknown, no matter how much I browse to that site. In fact I've right now the website open and the history doesn't show anything about it. I'm not on privacy mode. I only let ff clear my cookie & search history on exit. I have other websites which appear in the history. Another example: I've youtube open right now and it's not showing up. 59.0.2 Ubuntu Edition

Since your last update when I try to load my temporary website to work on it in GoDaddy it goes to the page but the site won't load. Just sits there with the little circle in the middle going round and round. Everything works fine on Chrome and Explorer.

Just tried it again and now it won't even let me go to the editing page or show link to editing page. When I click on "Manage" for my site all it does is show me a page with the expiration date.

I hope you can get this fixed. I hate Chrome! Every time you try to go somewhere it takes you to an ad site or a popup blocks your menu bar.

I started my PC this morning and tried to start Firefox Quantum. The PC rebooted. When it came back up, I used Internet Explorer to troubleshoot the problem. I found that accessibility services might be the culprit. I do use Ease of Access to make my mouse more visible. However, when I go to that feature of PC Settings (I am using MS Windows 10 Home), there is no way that I can see to turn off the mouse services. The only thing I can do is select the first option in size and color. The Help/Troubleshooting item doesn't have a tab for Accessiblility, so no luck there. Anything you guys can do to help would be appreciated. Internet Explorer is way too clunky, Google Chrome is incomprehensible and MS Edge... Thanks.
