I just updated my Firefox Developer edition and it completely deleted every add on and customization I had on my browser. Same for Firefox for iOS.

I have an "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop but I have no real way to make it work with the newly downloaded and overwritten new browser.

Am I the only person who's really sad about this?

Also, on the iOS browser I'm no longer able to create a BLANK PAGE as a start page for BOTH HOME AND NEW TAB.

How do I create that? There's no option in the dropdown on the mobile settings. And it does not allow me to type in about:blank and then select in the mobile settings. It just stays red and then disappears when I try to do it again.

Why did you rearrange the furniture so HARD?????

Thank you, Still reinstalling all my add ons after 2 days, Jean

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

I deal with www.vistaprint.co.uk The website opens, but I am unable to log in as the page freezes. I phoned Vistaprint and they told me never to use Firefox as it has problems, but to use Chrome. www.vistaprint.co.uk works normally with both Chrome and Windows Edge, but I prefer Firefox. Why do sites not work properly with my preferred browser - Firefox?

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

I would like to do an update of Firefox Browser. I've been unable to log in to websites, such as my bank, for which I have been able to access. Strange but I could log in, then for about a week I couldn't log in to bank site via my Icon shortcut. Then it began working again under the original icon. I was forced to use google during this time, which has worked. I prefer Firefox, because of more privacy. Again today, I was unable to access aaa.com, I was able to sign on via my iphone 8. Then I tried Google sign on, again it worked. This problem is intermittent. I thought I'd make sure Firefox Browser was updated. I have windows 7 on this computer. The browser update seemed to start then just hang.

I know this is hackneyed, but long ago, my ex husband set up my computer with Firefox, but it would - per my request, open with Yahoo, which is my default search engine. Occasionally, options pop up from Firefox, like today, it was to set the background color, and in the process is made Firefox my default everything.

Hello Firefox, recently I put an antivirus on my PC on the 22.10.2021, and lost the Firefox browser home page which contained shortcut thumbnails icons. This morning the original firefox home page appeared on my desktop with all of my shortcut thumbnail icons.

Unfortunately the old page vanished again when I closed and reopened webpages on the PC, what can I do to reclaim all of the old thumbnail shortcuts

Hi, since the last update my bookshelf icon is gone and I can't show my list of bookmarks on the side of the screen. To see and search my bookmarks, I now have to click on "Manage bookmarks" which is pretty annoying as it is very cumbersome to find what I need. I would love to be able to see all my bookmarks at one glance again. Where has that icon/list gone? There also used to be an option "Show all bookmarks" which is gone too. Please help me as I am heavily dependent on my bookmarks for my work. Thank you.
