-I logged into a site for which I do not save passwords. -I have several different accounts for this site that I open in different container tabs. -When I logged into the first one the user name and password were filled in. -I went to the saved logins and found it listed there, I deleted this login. -The next day when I logged in to the first one and the same thing happened, FF filled in the user name and password. -I went to the saved logins and this time it was not there, yet it keeps filling the name and password. -Now when I go to the other container tabs for the other accounts FF wants to fill in this user name and password. -Prior to this problem each user name would auto fill in the other tabs, now I have to type them in manually. As these are long user names it's more time consuming because of this glitch. -This is NOT an auto fill problem, I have included a screenshot to show that this is indeed a password issue. -I'm using the latest version of FF on Windows 10 Can someone please help?

I had 4 instances of Firefox windows open with multiple tabs open on each one, restart after a power outage and firefox did not bring back a singe instance of any of the open windows. How to prevent that in the future ot does Firefox need to do additional coding to make that a thing?

Since the last update, I have found a problem with BT webmail. For my 3 different ....@btinternet.com email accounts, since the update, when I save an email to the drafts folder, then re-open it to edit and send, I can no longer re-save or send an email that comes from the drafts folder. Pressing the send or save buttons does nothing. New emails started and sent straight away (without going into the drafts folder) are not affected and still work perfectly, only those saved in drafts. This is a feature I use a lot - are you aware, and can it be fixed next update?

I use AOL e-mail, and this opens perfectly well with Firefox. Now, in order to save an e-mail to a folder on my PC I have to save it as an html document to be opened by my browser, i.e. Firefox. For a while now when I try to open any saved e-mail it will open for a few seconds and then it is covered by a Blerk 5 error notice. The following information accompanies it: ERR1800 Report ID: 0ca992e91cc1f7c63-20211015-124427. I would greatly appreciate a fix for this problem. I assume all the data are there safely saved because I can read the e-mails even if only for a few seconds. I need the fix to allow me to open all my old saved e-mails. Thank you.

Print has been broken since the display interface changed recently.

I have used FF to print placards composed using html, generally contained in tables. This almost always requires "scaling" the page to fit the available space for the printed result.

With the new interface, when I change the scale from 100% (in this case to 120%) blocks of text disappear both on the preview screen and in the resulting printout.

When I do the same with the same html file using Chrome, the page and the resulting printout scale correctly.

Would like to be able to continue to do this using FF. Hope you can address this.

I assume that you know that the FF "submit feedback" is not usable... there is no way to login other than social media, and no apparent way to "submit feedback" by mere mortals.

Hi,

I'm using the latest Nightly on Windows 10. This Nightly was manually installed in a customized folder, so it works like a portable Nightly (you can copy/paste it to another folder and it'll work). In fact, for test purposes I have several Nightlys manually installed in different customized folder, all working at the same time. No Nightly standard installation on this computer, so no Nightly installed at C:\Program Files, nor C:\Program Files (x86), nor C:\Users.

Please, I'm looking for a way where the update process is done silently, at least 3 times per day. By update process I mean: Check, Download, Apply/install updates and Restart (if needed)... silently and automatically (no human intervention)... at least 3 times per day. I need to be sure that every time a Nightly is launched ALWAYS is already automatically updated.

I googled the subject and I found very old articles, so I preferred to ignore them. However, it seems that recently Nightly started to use a new Mozilla Maintenance Service + Firefox Background Updates. But if I well understood, it only works if Nightly is closed/not in use, which is useless for my needs described above.

A very friendly developer helped me, and he wrote a java script which works perfectly for my needs. But I wonder if I can avoid external java scripts. I wonder if I can achieve same results just by using Nightly own resources. I wonder if I can use the new Mozilla Maintenance Service with a specific Windows task (or a batch file etc).

Any help will be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

On this site: https://www.orange.pl/twojekonto/zaloguj I can't force firefox to remember username (no problem with remembering password on next step). In older Firefox without WebEx there was addon which allowed to manipulate forms to prepare proper autocompletion data. This addon is not supported with WebEx anymore due to lack of proper functions. Instead Firefox Dev Team claims that mechanism built in current Firefox is enough for such tasks and mentioned addons are not needed. Seems it is wrong thinking.

I tried different approaches to save username for mentioned site but without success.

I'm currently on Firefox under ...@suddenlink.net. Suddenlink as an ISP has been flaky for a year now and getting more erratic, so I want to change to my primary email address ...@gmail.com. So I made it my secondary with the intention to change it to primary, and when trying to enter it as my secondary it said "already exists." I checked my notes and I have none that say I ever tried to use Firefox under that email which i have had since I first acquired it from Google at least 11 yeas ago. It's never been anyone else's under Google, maybe there's a pretender using it for Firefox? So, I'm at an impasse. I need someone to delete that ...@gmail.comaccount from it's associated with Mozilla, and just as I don't recall ever establishing it in association with Firefox, I don't have a password stored for it. Thanks, Dean

This probably seems like a silly gripe, but when copy-pasting text, say from a website into a Google Doc, I used to often paste it into the URL bar first, then copy it to paste into my Doc, because that was a quick easy way to remove formatting from the texts (hyperlinks, bold, etc.).

At some point relatively recently, this changed. Now when I paste a chunk of text into the URL bar and either cut or copy it from there, what I get when I paste it is just the URL of the page I'm on. The text I'd pasted into the URL bar might STILL BE THERE when I hit ctl+C and ctl+V but what gets pasted is the URL of the page that actually is nowhere to be seen. Is there a way around this or do I just have to take longer to remove formatting from pasted text now? Thank you for any info!

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 ?

Why does firefox keep archiving my email replies when I haven't even selected archive? I'll be typing along then, all of the sudden, it just archives the message I'm working on and prompts me that it has been archived? Is there a combination of keys that is doing this? I type really fast and I noticed this only happens when I type fast. I want to disable this feature, it is driving me nuts.

I have a dual monitor (extended display) setup and 2 Firefox windows open (one for each monitor). When Firefox crashes or is closed unexpectedly, opening it restores the previous session but the order in which the windows are restored is incorrect.

In other words, hovering over the Firefox icon in the taskbar shows 2 window previews open but in the incorrect order; the first window (left window preview) actually points to the right monitor's window and vice versa. As you can imagine this is superbly annoying because when I hover over the left window preview I expect to access the left monitor's window not the other way around!

This is on Windows 10.
