I am a university professor. All of my classes use Canvas software. After last week's Firefox update, none of the embedded figures on my course pages appear - only their file name. They are showing up just fine in Chrome, so I know that the problem is somehow connected to Firefox. They also disappeared immediately after the last update.

My students and I need to be able to see the images...and I don't want to uses Chrome. I would like to know how to either return Firefox to its previous version or have the new version somehow corrected so that it gets along with Canvas.

Thank you.

Hello, recently I started getting this error when I try to access Twitter in Firefox. It only happens with Firefox, and only happens with Twitter (https://www.twitter.com/). I've tried opening Firefox in safe mode, same error. Doesn't that mean that a refresh won't help? Or should I still try that? I've also tried different computers, didn't work. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Quite often when I page down to read message from website, then I found I missed something and like to go back one page, page up will bring me back to the top. Upon checking it is because Firefox don't move cursor with page down, the cursor still at the top and thus page up bring me there

It is really inconvenience and if anyway to fix that?

The quick version of my question: Why does my Yahoo email readily open on most devices without prompting for the Primary Password? I'm not particularly tech savvy but I've looked and I haven't created any exceptions that would allow opening my email to be bypassed from the PP. Longer version: I use MF as my preferred browser and I have many websites bookmarked to which my passwords are autofilled. I work from home but I am my replacement at her office location. I was alarmed to find that when I brought up an MF browser on desktops at the office location, there were my bookmarks along with the ability for anyone to effortlessly login to a given website since the passwords were saved. to remedy, I tuned off Sync, but that didn't seem to solve the problem as my bookmarks were still exactly and easily accessible. Then I created a Primary Password on the two desktops at the remote office location, as well as several devices in my home. The puzzle is that Yahoo opens with no problem when I select that bookmark. I don't get prompted for the PP until I open another browser page. Also of concern: when I select a password protected bookmark, I can manually enter my login and see my sensitive account information if I just keep clicking on Cancel when the PP prompt appears. Is that because knowing the password "overwrites" the security of the PP?

Hi. I am moving my Firefox settings from the old IBM to the new MintBox computer. Both run Linux Mint. Procedure so far followed:

1. Bring over key4.db and logins.json 2. Sign in to Firefox sync and import everything.

Over here I got my custom settings to save all cookies, even third party cookies, for the session. There were Exceptions, which did not come over. (Here I will Allow Always the websites I keep a cookie to log in automatically or set site preferences. I may even blockm certain third party sites from storing cookies. These deviate from the default, to allow for session.)

I did not get the custom thumbs I created over there for my New Tab start page pinned sites. I got the pinned sites OK.


This didn't work: I copied the .mozilla folder from my home and pasted it here by way of a flash driveafter backing up this profile. That didn't work when I brought Firefox up from a Thunderbird Mail link.


So now I looked to see what my Profile folder is called, stored in my home/.thunderbird/firefox/{Profile} as found under Firefox Help > Troubleshooting. I copied that folder onto a flash drive and have it available here.

How best to proceed? First I back .mozilla up, then open Firefox and go to the Troubleshooting page and open my active Profile. Then:

Copy selected files from my Profile over on the Flash drive and paste them individually here?

Delete everything here before pasting in a copy of the contents of the imported profile?

Don't delete anything here and paste contents of my imported file, overwriting?

I am tending to want to go with the first choice, adding or replacing files here with selected files from the imported copy sitting on the flash drive.

Is there a specific list and description of the various profile files I need to paste in? An up-to-date reference containing this info?

[b]Running Linux Mint 19.3 64-bit MATE on the old IBM Running Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon on the new MintBox Mini 2 (Pro)/b

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.

Hello,

I've recently finished building a new computer and have been working on setting everything up, and Firefox Sync has made restoring my browser info quite easy. However I've got two other computers I'd like to try and transfer data from, and unfortunately made the mistake of not syncing the browsers between those two computers beforehand.

So I'm wondering if it's possible to sync the data between the browsers on all three computers and how to do so, and if I attempt to sync the data between them, will they merge together or will one overwrite the other?

Thank you for your time and assistance.
