I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

FF beta for Mac OS, 93.0b3.

Unless I'm totally blind, there is no Two-step authentication option on the security panel. What is going on? I can't use sync without activating 2FA. If there is really no way to sync other than a non-existent 2FA, I'm going back to Chrome.

I recently installed Firefox Developer Edition on a Debian system. I synced my existing profile. There is currently an "import bookmarks" tab displayed that I am unable to delete. I see other existing questions asking and answering this problem, however, I do not have the "customization" option recommended.

I remember seeing somewhere that -moz-box-ordinal-group does not keep assigned values in userChrome if the value is changed after being set the first time. This certainly seems to be the case -

With the following I had temporarily set the value to '1' but then set it back to '2' - it no longer works.

#clearDownloadsButton {
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}

Am I missing something?

Hi,

during maintenance of my logins in my password manager I discovered that I still have the login data for a FireFox Sync account. I can login to that account and see my settings, but I actually want to delete the account completely. The problem: The mail address associated with that account does not exist anymore (changed the company). When trying to delete the account (or when trying to add a seconday mail address), Firefox Sync prompts me to enter a verification code that was sent by mail.

I'll never receive that code, as that original mail adress does not exist anymore.

How can I delete that FS Sync account?

Thanks, Frank

I've got a new computer I am setting up from scratch, and though I have set FF to sync settings, I'm still having to customize a lot. My bookmarks toolbar is crowded again with icons and I'd like those to go away. I don't mind other icons staying around on the tabs--that does help me navigate faster. I had this set up before, but lost the setting when I refreshed Firefox.

Firefox just updated itself to 93.0 and now suddenly I have a big black border around the searchbar when it is focused. The userchrome "#searchbar { border: none !important; }" gets rid of the white border when the searchbar is not focused, but (just a stab in the dark) the userchrome "#searchbar[focused="true"] { border: none !important; }" does nothing when it is focused. How can I get rid of it? (It can be seen in the right-hand part of the attached image.)

Tried to reply to your email. It has not return. Here is a copy of report you requested. It is different from what you sent me.

> Task: invalidateCaches - Unable to invalidate caches > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: originFrecencyStats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I still have no bookmarks. I have restarted the computer a number of times. I also renamed the places.sqlite adding a 1 after places as it said in other directions. I have also refreshed.

Yesterday, I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled after receipt of your response. It said all cookies, history, bookmarks etc transferred successfully. However, I keep getting the message “ and Bookmarks and history systems will not be functional because one of Firefox’s file is in use by another application. Some security software can cause the problem. I use McAfee, I’ve always used it. I have not changed it.

I did not do anything with favicon file as I don’t know what to do, I understand you can delete that. If there is a list of more than one, then what do I do.

As I indicated, I an NOT a technical person.

Please advise.

Thanks.

FF 93 arrived last night and now my setting (from userChrome.css) that removes the cyan color of the urlbar doesn't work anymore:

  1. urlbar[focused="false"]:not([suppress-focus-border]) > #urlbar-background {
 border: none !important;

}

I tried a few different things but they were for older versions of FF and naturally they didn't work. I even added a line "border-color: none !important;" but that didn't work either.

So, any suggestions for version 93 of how to remove the cyan border (again) when I click on the urlbar?

FF is offering me two versions of my e-mail when I login to a website where I have specifically told it to 'never' remember a password. The little black selection dropdown shows both myUserName@myMailserver.com myUserName@myMailserver.co When I click to login page of 'website.com'. It does not offer this for all websites that use e-mail address as login.

I have checked and the website in question shows up in 'never save' exceptions to my 'ask to save usernames and passwords'.

So I have no saved passwords to remove for that site--when I look up 'website.com', I get nothing.

2 questions: why does FF continue to offer a login name for that site?

FF 93.04 beta (will be updated in a few minutes to next version) MacOS 11.6 Big Sur and where can I find and zap 'myUserName@myMailserver.co' without losing all of my other logins & passwords that I do allow FF to store for me?
