It took a bit of troubleshooting to isolate the cause of this. But apparently after my most recent Firefox update, when I click on the "Email Link" function, which I have in my overflow menu, the email itself does not pop up on top of the browser, instead it is hidden beneath it when it used to be on top.

I have done a couple of restores, tested all recent Windows updates, and upon a final restore and more or less disabling the Firefox updates, I believe the problem is with my most recent Firefox update. As long as I don't update, the email appears on top of the browser.

Short of disabling Firefox updates entirely, of which I wish i could do, I would accept responsibility for that, I can find no other workaround except to minimize the browser in order to address & send the email.

Thank you.

Basically I have Never Remember History enabled, and each time I open FF there's data in 'Cookies and Site Data'. Under 'Cookies and Site Data' it will say there's a bit of data (in the photo is says 16Kb, which is pretty typical). If I look under 'manage cookies and site data' there will be nothing there. Sometimes the cookies or cache or whatever is bigger if the last time I used that profile I was watching videos, at most it will be a couple Mb's maybe. If I wipe it out, it will go to 0Kb, and then for the rest of the profile session, even if I have a bazillion tabs open, it will say 0, but then there's always a cache there the next time I start that profile.

What is it? Why is there always a small amount of data in the 'Cookies and Site Data' section each time I restart a profile?

I'm currently running version 68.2.0esr on Debian Linux version 5.3.0-1-amd64. Extension: uBlock Origin 1.23.0

                 uMatrix 1.4.0
                 Canvasblocker 0.5.14.

Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. (disabled) Version 1.8.1.1

              Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. Version 4.10.1440.19

I have web history turned off ('Never Remember History'), trackers blocked, cookies enabled w/ third party disabled, auto search engine update turned on, Do Not Track enabled, 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' enabled by default (b/c history is off). I might have changed a few tiny things in about:config but nothing I remember offhand. Any other system info I can look up in need be.

Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.

Firefox mixes eBay Kleinanzeigen's listings in a higgledy-piggledy order. One the first page (20 or so listings), it's mostly correct but going back further from 'now', some of yesterday's listings are mixed in with today's and for today's earlier listings pop up between later ones. It just seems FF fails to read their database correctly. I've tried with all add-ons disabled but it still happens. It's been going on for a week or so. The same URL displayed in Chrome doesn't have that problem. Thanks!

Restart Previous Sessions under Startup is NOT CHECKED, but previous sessions load upon startup. Do I have to quit each tab I have open? Frustrating not having the option checked but performs that way anyway. Causes long load up times too.

Man, why is getting support so hard too? This bad habit is all over the web. It's an industry disease. All one-way only.

Each time I watch a movie on my video streaming website I get an error message in a yellow notification bar ("the clearkey plugin has crashed" -- translation), and there is no issues with video playback.

We currently would like to upgrade our centrally installed Firefox ESR version and would like users to keep their settings and be disrupted minimally. Specifically we would like to upgrade from 68.4.2 to the current 68.8.

I am aware that as of Firefox 67 a dedicated profile version is used for each Firefox version (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation).

I had assumed that as it is only a minor upgrade of the same ESR version a new profile would not be necessary, however it creates a new empty profile by default.

The suggested solution to use Firefox Sync is not an option as creating Firefox Sync accounts for all our users would even be more overhead.

Is it indended behaviour that new profiles are created for the same ESR (major) version? Is there a simple way to migrate existing profiles?

Thanks.

I very often have to visit a (company internal) webpage where the url is something like

        https://internal.company.com/blabla/whatever?func=test&id=XXXXX

where XXXX is changing (it's a document identifier)

Now I'd like to be able to reduce this to something like "a XXXXX" and to have firefox to automatically expand this to the full link. It's a bit like a custom search with a keyword. Is this easily possible?

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

Dear audience

I have troubles that when I copy Firefox profile to another computer, the web extensions does not work.

Sometimes helps to restart Firefox to safe-mode and then back to normal. But always works when on a new computer I disable extensions and enabled them back on.

If I remember correctly, this behavior started with Firefox 68.

OS: Windows 10 Firefox: 77.0.1, 64bit, English

Do anyone know why this is happening, and hot to correct it? Is there any preference that should be modified?

Thank you and cheers

Read the two 'hits' from my search re: cookie exceptions saved but not working. All I picked up was a) don't want to try Refresh just for this tiny problem b) it may be some .js file override or c) possible file corruption. I dump all cookies at end of session, but typically have a few to a handful listed under Manage perms/Exceptions.

Disconcerting as I entered https and http but either way at least 1 site refuses to save my data. Odd.


Well, appreciate any feedback. Small potatoes.
