My Linix Mint will not auto update. I have down loaded update, but will not update. I have gone into the "Terminal" to update everything, would not update. I have FireFox 88 and need to get 107 on my system so I can access some sites. Any help would be great.

Thank you Paul

Can't delete an account for which I no longer have the email address

I'm sure I'm not alone in having an old email address stripped off the server when changing broadband supplier. Unfortunately, most services use email as user ID, hence I have an old F'fox a/c - my first - for which I have long since forgotten the password, which uses just such an email. As a consequence, I can neither change the email nor delete the a/c - F'fox seems to insistst on a user knowing a/c password in order to change email (understandable), or delete the a/c (slightly less understandable). So it 'helpfully' tries to send a password re-set link to ........the a/c email, which of course no longer exists & thus I cannot access. May be just my (mis)perception, but because this was my first a/c, F'fox seems to default to the now inaccessible a/c - one reason why I wish to delete it. Is there another method whereby I can delete this old a/c, or is it doomed to wander the ether for eternity?

I would like to disable the "Confirm Upload" dialog when uploading files on a web page. I need to do a lot of uploading and confirming every time is really hampering my work flow, especially since I can't even confirm with a keystroke.

Is there a config setting or option to disable this on a per site or global manner? I can't find any info in all my searches.

Thanks

After my Browser automatically updated to 88.0.1 (i unfortunately ignored the popup to update Firefox for a while) i started it and my Login data was gone. Extensions, Bookmarks, anything other than Lockwise Data was still there.

I made an account (this one) as i previously did not have one in hopes of somehow fixing that; then after searching for solutions i checked for an "old data" file (does not exist) and checked about:profiles (i have a second profile named "default" that has absolutely zero saved data on anything, i dont know where it came from or wheter it was ever used). The profile that i use ("default-release") was active and that was that.

Then i checked Appdata/Roaming/.../theprofile (from the profile page) and was relieved to find that both "logins.jason" and "logins-backup.json" contained my Login data: The Username and Password (encrypted), formSubmitURL, giud, enctype, etc. I made a completly seperate backup in case something i do ends up deleting those. Since the passwords are encrypted i cannot add them one by one to Lockwise.

I dont know why they dont appear when i check my Login data or try to use the data on any Website. Can i manually "import" the file into Firefox so that it automatically decyrpts the passwords?

Bangirot says technical problems when I want to see my received bankgiro payments. Win10 with Firefox, I can't see payments on that machine for a month soon. I have reinstalled firefox now. Still same result. With Android phone and firefox it works, but without printer. With another browser on Win10 it works, but not with firefox. Swedbank internetbank or bankgirocentralen can't help me. They have not heard of such problems.

Internetbank works, but with their connection to bankgirot it says, tehnical problems. If I login to bankgirot directly, it says tehnical problems.

So far its only the combination with this machine and firefox that gives this result. I haven't tried with another machine yet.

I have used firefox very long time without any problems.

Best regards Arne Danielsson

why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? If there is no help available will switching to Express VPN resolve problems with firefox ?

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

Hello, I have a very odd problem with my firefox browser. I am running firefox 88 64bit on a 16.04 (I know...) Ubuntu. On certain websites, I have an issue with interactive content: www.leboncoin.fr will not let me login anymore (quite recent) www.decathlon.fr will have trouble displaying user comments, images, let alone placing an order Now and then websites with dynamic content and forms will not load...

I am not sure what is the link between all these but it seems related. I have tried the troubleshoot mode but it does not change anything. At the moment when I need to use these king of website I have to switch to another browser.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi All,

I'm trying to modify various userChrome.css attributes of Tabs in Firefox 109.

However, code that worked in FF 88 is seemingly no longer working.

Is the below code outdated?

I would also like to change the appearance of #TabsToolbar from translucent to either a solid color or a background image. Is that possible? Right now, you can see icons from the desktop through the Tab bar, and there appears to be a strange curved, black overlay colorizing it. See attached screenshot.

Thanks for any input!

/* MISCELLANEOUS TAB ATTRIBUTES */

  1. TabsToolbar { /* tab bar */
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 3 !important;
 padding-top: 0 !important;
 padding-bottom: 0 !important;
 height: 25px !important;
 background-image: url("bkmr_back.gif");
 border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
 border-bottom: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

/* Change the color of selected tab */

   .tab-background[selected="true"] {
       background-attachment: none!important;
       background-image: none!important;

background-color: #eef5fc !important; /* background color only, not border */ }

/* Change text attributes of selected tab #8698aa to match bottom tabstoolbar line color */

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab[selected] {

font-weight: 800 !important; color: #000 !important;

       border-top: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #8698aa !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #8698aa !important;

}

  1. TabsToolbar .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected]) {

font-weight: 600 !important; color: #000 !important; /* non-selected tab text color */

       border-top: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-left: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;
       border-right: 1px solid #afc0d2 !important;

}

/* Change the color of non-selected tab */

  .tab-background:not([selected]) {
       color: #000000 !important;

background-color: #c7d3e0 !important; }
