Mozilla Support doesn't save my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) email and password on the 'Logins & Passwords' page. I don't like that. I know that the Firefox Account isn't the same thing as the 'Sign in to Firefox' account in the browser, which is good because I don't want to 'Sign in to Firefox'. But it bothers me that the browser is saving my Firefox Account (Mozilla Support) password and email somewhere that isn't the 'Logins & Passwords' page. Please fix/change this behavior.

On the site "https://my.aliexpress.ru" in the "wishlist" section, I click on the saved link and instead of going to the desired page I get this result. The problem appeared only today. Before this problem appeared, a warning window popped up. That's just the logic in that message was not. Apparently I turned off something. How to get everything back? Everything works fine in Chrome.

when I am posting replies to friends in Facebook timeline, I would click the "picture" icon to insert an image file in my reply ... I have a lot of memes and pictures (5000+)... the "search" in the upper right hand corner does not allow me to search anything about 99% of the time ... I click into it but the cursor never appears ... stays in the lower filename below ... I can scroll through the entire list if I happen to know the image file name and grab it to insert it ... just the search doesn't work - very frustrating .... I thought it was facebook privacy settings per person I was replying to, but then I finally opened up Windows Edge browser and now it works all the time in that browser. I made sure "search" service is turned ON in my Windows 10 environment ... appears to be a problem mainly in Firefox (latest version) and Internet Explorer 11 ... now I know Edge works but I like Firefox better. I don't have many addons - I do have adblock for firefox but it does not make any difference in this area.

Hi!

I am badly consuming the internet what resulted a currently 1474 tab browser session (not all loaded, for sure...). I want to solve this problem, and to manage it, i wanted to bookmark them all. (to reopen them in smaller bulk, or when i ordered them in ABC, clear them in bulk) Any tab > left click > Select all > Bookmark selected> save to floder> done...

When i am in that folder, and selecting them all by CTRL+A, it shows 1428 item. As i checked it is not a hard limit in binary, or anything like that, not the issue of about: pages (because they would be saved).

Any idea, what kind of tabs are being unbookmarkable?

In quantamagazine.org articles, they often have images (essentially they are infographics) that are clickable and scrollable. The problem is, I open them just fine but I can't scroll them down. In other browsers this feature works fine.

Example: https://www.quantamagazine.org/where-gravity-is-weak-and-naked-singularities-are-verboten-20170620/

I tried starting in "safe mode" but no difference. Is it a firefox bug? I use the 71.0 (64-bit) firefox version.

I started an upload to Mediafire and later I accidentally chose to quit Firefox, forgetting that an upload was in progress. Firefox instantly quit. I assume the same thing will happen during a download, but I haven't tested that yet.

Is it normal behaviour for Firefox to ignore an upload in progress, and actually quit without warning if the user chooses to quit?

I copied bookmarks from the "Recently Bookmarked" folder to a folder I created. When I delete them from the "Recently Bookmarked" folder, it deletes them from the new folder I created too! Then I have to continually have to click "undo" to get them back. I end up with doubles of the same bookmarks once again in both folders! What is the answer to avoid this goofy situation?

I work at a university and have laptop computers that multiple students use, and I want them all to be able to access various preset bookmarks that they will need on the Bookmarks Toolbar. I used to be able to set it up with one account and then save the settings to the default user account. In the latest versions of Firefox, this no longer works. Any ideas?

Hi, On Firefox 71, when addons are enabled/disabled, I experience blurry instead of crisp graphics on Google Maps. Initially when the page loads at say 67% zoom, 10 seconds later, it gets blurry and then I get the warning from google maps to load the maps page at 100% zoom for best view. This wasn't an issue on previous firefoxes, and I haven't changed hardware, maybe it's a config setting? How do I fix this?

My PC crashed probably due to some hardware issues. After rebooting, FIrefox Sync is disconnected, but when I reconnect it, all my logins and passwords are gone. I have searched the profile directory, there is a logins.json.corrupt file from the time of the crash, but empty. The new logins.json file is empty too. There is only one profile directory (as expected). Any ideas anyone if I could restore the logins file to the state before the crash, or how I could prevent this from happening next time? Thanks.
