Twice in the past couple of months I have lost all my bookmarks.

I have tried everything Support suggested. No suggestions have been able to solve this bug.

How can this be permanently prevented (other than daily backup)?

On a desktop using Windows 7.

Ripeto i miei dati: windows 10 aggiornato; kaspersky internet security; tutto funziona perfettamente. Oggi ho aggiornato a Firefox 63. Da ieri mi appare che i segnalibri non possono funzionare correttamente. Ho seguito tutte le vostre possibili soluzioni ed aiuti. Da ultimo ho provato a ripristinare i segnalibri; mi dice che non posso salvare il backup. Cosa posso fare. Grazie. SOCREMBERGAMO

Youtube Slight Hiccup in Playback

Though YouTube videos play well, every 10-30 seconds or so, there's a frame or two where it goes back a quarter to half of a second. I've tried using the h246ify plugin addon, but it changed nothing. I see problems with video and audio playback are quite common in Firefox, but I haven't seen too many in Quantum (especially something so little as a random stutter). Any help is greatly appreciated, though it's not a very game-breaking problem (I've had this issue since Quantum came out and I installed Windows).

How to stop videos from loading on metered connection?

I'm currently using nightly and, while videos with audio are muted by media.autoplay.ask-permission, and further they are paused if you also set allow-muted to false, the problem is that they still load.

On a metered [or slow] connection, this is a big problem.

Viewing a news article on ABC [for example] pre-loads the entire video in the background.

To make matters worse; Even after the entire video has been cached, a steady stream of 200KB/s is still continually streamed from the CDN.

Example link: https://abcnews.go.com/US/noreaster-season-east-coast/story?id=58738494

If you monitor bandwidth with Firefox's network monitor, or a 3rd party tool [like jnettop for Linux], you'll see that the page continues to load video data.

Not only would I expect it to not load any if playback is disabled, but it certainly shouldn't continue to load data, perpetually, after the entire video has been buffered.

Sometimes stopping and then immediately restarting what I'm trying to download in Firefox three or four times gets Firefox to download the file to my OneDrive. But in this case, it doesn't. I want to overwrite the old Vivaldi 2.0 installer file in my OneDrive programs folder with the new Vivaldi 2.1 installer file (.EXE) in my OneDrive "Programs" folder. I'm glad in addition to Firefox reaching version 63.0 Stable two days ago, Vivaldi has reached version 2.1 today. Firefox 63 Stable has many bugs that are easy to notice and need fixing sooner rather than later in my experiences and opinion.

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

It tried to brute force open dialogs to get me to download something and kept popping up all sorts of crap. It prevented me from closing the tab by opening up endless dialogs. I finally was able to close the tab by pressing ESC rapidly.

So my suggestion is to allow closing the current tab even if a dialog has focus in the application. This would not allow a website to pop up save dialogs and other dialogs preventing you from closing the tab. Honestly with the current architecture of applications I am not sure this is possible if the dialog is modal.

So I guess is there any kind of emergency mechanism to prevent this kind of thing already? I have pop ups blocked in Firefox settings. I just have never seen a someone abuse the save file dialog like this.

Perhaps I need some third party plugin to protect myself from this. I used to run Noscript, but ran into issues with usability of websites. I also got weary of having to enable servers all the time.

I have no freaking idea how I will ever get an answer to get help so I hope everyone enjoyed reading this amusing problem!!! Fuck computers and computer life I should have filed a law suit against Texas A&M for forcing me to use these demonic pieces of excrement!!!

Since the last couple of days, I see that Firefox holds a lock for places.db for the whole time while Firefox is open. The problem manifests itself when I use alfred workflow to do a search for a firefox bookmark by a keyword. I see that the workflow written in Python crashes with

`sqlite3.OperationalError: database is locked`

When I close Firefox, the script is working fine. When I open it again - the script is not operational again. Tried safe mode - the same result.

This was working fine for years and the symptom points that it was changed recently and now Firefox holds a lock during the whole time it is open. I guess previously the database lock was acquired per bookmark write transaction.

FF 63.0 macOS

Is it a known issue? Why was this change made?

Thanks!

I recently switched from firefox32 to firefox64, following the instruction on Mozilla website (installed 64bit then uninstall 32 bit). Everything works fine until I was prompted to update to the latest version 63.0.

I did not have automatic update, so I manually downloaded the installer and took care to select the 64 bit button, but to my surprise I discovered I was switched to the latest 32 bit version.

I would like to know why before I spend time to manually switch to 64 bit again.

This is on an old pc running Windows 7

Thanks
