Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

I am attempting to change my secondary email address with the intent to make my new email the primary email. I have removed the old secondary email, but when I try to add the email address that I want. I get an error message saying that the email already exists. I note that in the Firefox account dialog the secondary email address is blank.

I did sign up for Firefox VPN using the email address that I'd like to use and so that's a possible reason. I just don't know how to fix it. Note; I'm no longer planning to use Firefox VPN. I wonder if perhaps there's a way to cancel/delete that account.

'bold text'Problem with appearance of aplusnet email on my iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

For no apparent reason, everything in the Firefox window displaying this email application appears about one-fifth or less of normal size. (See attached screen shot.) Everything, meaning text fonts, graphics, etc. No other Firefox window or tab similarly affected. I tried restarting the application. And then restarting the computer, then Firefox, then the aplusnet email. No soap. Not responsive to changing the font size.

No idea how this happened, but it’s rendered the email unreadable on Firefox. I'm running Firefox Browser 87.0. Thanks very much for your help.

I never delete history! But I noticed this since long time ago, e.g. I want to go on a website - I was recently on (if I closed it already) but it is not in immediate search history - it happened to me multiple times!

Also now: I was searching for one keyword a lot, like 50 times and in history are barely like 7 hits. No idea why it is not there!!!

Please help.

What is the nature of the "Disconnect" agency whose solicitation appears as a tab page from Firefox requesting donations? Please explain who is "Disconnect." From the web address it is not clear what the connection is with Mozilla. What is the difference between donating via the "Disconnect" and donating via the route provided under the "about Firefox" menu item? Presumably "Disconnect" is servicing Mozilla, yet I am wishing that relationship and security to be clarified more convincingly before contributing by that route. Thanks for responses.

Hello, I recently downloaded and started using Firefox on macOS Big Sur 11.2.3. I keep getting a TINY firefox icon in the doc that is not clickable (screenshot attached). Using this fix (kill Dock) will remove it but I don't really want to be doing that every day and I'm wondering what causes this tiny icon. Is there something I can do to stop this from happening? Or is it serving some very important function that I don't know about? I appreciate any guidance. Thanks!

I am a software engineer. I love Firefox but I believe that a memory leak may have developed. The problem goes back a couple of months. I have one instance of Firefox open with three tabs opened but the task manager shows a large number of instances of Firefox being open and using a lot of memory. Currently there are nine instances of Firefox shown in the task manager. Look at the screen shot of the task manager that I uploaded.

I often have a lot of tabs open but I rebooted and opened a new instance of 

Firefox with only 3 tabs. I did open a new private window at the same time as the session I explained above but then I closed the private window. The memory leak might be the private window remaining in memory after it was closed. My OS is Windows 7. Yeah I know MS has stopped supporting it but I hate up dating the OS.

Thanks, Bill Smith
