Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.

i just downloaded the new version onto my macbook pro, and have lost all my bookmarks and other settings which is very annoying. It wants me to sync with another device but I DON'T WANT to do that !! how can I avoid this and restore my settings/bookmarks etc or barring that, dump the new version and go back to the old one which worked fine which hopefully still has all my settings ?

Hello everyone, Trying to find out if my Mac Mini has been infected with flashback. Using this terminal command,

defaults read /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info LSEnvironment,

I got this response:

{MallocNanoZone = 0;}

It should read:

The domain/default pair of (/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Info, LSEnvironment) does not exist

I cannot find anything about this and was wondering if it indicates anything malicious. Anyone know about this? Thanks.

Yesterday I started having trouble accessing YouTube from Firefox. It will play a video I have bookmarked, but it won't show channel name, comments, or any suggested videos. If I open youtube.com directly I just see gray boxes where the videos should be and can't click on anythings.

Using safe mode didn't fix the problem, and I only have two active add-ons, neither of which have changed recently.

my question is about security

https://support.mozilla.org/fr/kb/messages-demande-permission-extensions-firefox?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_acceder-a-vos-donnees-pour-tous-les-sites-web

Access your data for all websites ; Extensions requesting this permission could: The extension can read the content of any web page you visit as well as the data you enter there, such as usernames and passwords.

Can Addon read paswords ? from all the sites I visit? almost all addons require "access your data for all websites ?" can they all potentially access my accounts?

thank you very much in advance for your answer

Where Can I Compliment the Developers for Making Login to Sites 20x More Hassle on FireFox for Android?

Is there anyplace I can compliment the developers of FireFox v80 on Android for the ingenious upgrade to access of saved login data, that makes it impossible to copy/paste login information from the settings into a login form?

The old way, that was no good, made it possible to copy from saved login data to a login form when prefill does not happen due to subtle differences in domain names used on mobile devices vs. desktop devices. Before v80. the saved login data would be in one tab and the login form in another, so you could switch between the two, carrying the username and password in the clipboard for pasting into the form.

The new way, which is much better, makes that impossible, because the saved login data is not displayed within a tab, but instead is displayed in a four-layer-deep overlay, which blows away the login form on sites using javascript-driven popups for login forms.

The net effect is what used to be possible with a hassle now is impossible. I guess this new way is a bigger hassle, but the new way still is better, otherwise it would not be new, right?

Is there a way to communicate this directly to the developers?

What I believe to be a mozilla site "https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/" has all the older FF versions but when I downloaded the Mac OS version 81.0 which is the en-US version it does not have the new credit card feature and it also does not have D.O.H. active by default.

The sha256 hash is c4975a1a73dd1976e1f58cf5822921d25f2fb4a0e092897037e039d7ac6b8a67

It should be en-US but it does not have the new credit card feature in the menu. Why? Is FTP site no longer valid?

I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?
