Is there a way to backup 'Cookies and Site Data' so if a refresh is needed, all permissions aren't lost

Under about:preferences#privacy there is a section 'Cookies and Site Data'. I have my settings set to CUSTOM and block all cookies. I then have managed my exceptions. I did a refresh resently, all that was lost. The best I can do currently is to have wordpad open and manually type each line out in my exceptions and then if needed in the future, I could copy and paste. There might be a better way that I do not know. I do know by default, the 'Managed Exceptions' under 'Cookies and Site Data' does not save if 'Refreshed'. Please address a better process and not my choice on blocking all cookies, thank you.

I would suggest adapting the Firefox icon to the new Big Sur design. Unfortunately, among the most common applications, Firefox is the only one that has still kept the old design (which makes Firefox seem like something out of date and not very obsolete in appearance, while in reality it is a concentrate of care and progress).

The user observes the evolution of an app from the thick icon design, so I can't explain how Firefox can still own its design (which unfortunately doesn't align with the dock). On iOS / iPadOS you have the appropriate icon, why not transfer it directly to macOS Big Sur at this point (thus unifying the interface itself)?

Nothing to say about the rest, you are fabulous and the best (I just suggest a hint of transparency in the panel bar).

With regard

When I have a PDF open that was downloaded via Firefox 88.0.1 64 bit and I click an email address on the PDF to send the file to that email address I always get the select email client dialog. I've set the default email client in Firefox and in Windows and have clicked "Always use this application to open mailto links" but I still get this pop up.

Does anyone have a suggestion?

Eine Textdatei mit dem Editor erzeugen. Die Datei deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt nennen. Den Folgenden Text hineinkopieren oder schreiben:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000001

Die Datei speichern und dann Umbenennen mit der Endung REG. Das heiß aus deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.txt wird deaktivateFireFoxUpdate.reg Dann die Datei ausführen. Die Datei legt den Wert DisableAppUpdate in der Reg an und setzt ihn auf 1, das stoppt Firefox Autoupdates. In den Firefox Einstellungen steht dann Updates durch Admin deaktiviert.

Um ds Rückgängig zu machen Eine DAtei mit folgemdem Inhalt erzeugen:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Mozilla\Firefox] "DisableAppUpdate"=dword:00000000

Die Updates werden aktiviert bzw., deaktiviert indem man den Wert auf 1 oder Null setzt.


Meine Meinung dazu: So bekommt man wieder die Eigenständige Kontrolle über seinen Computer. Ein dreifaches Pfui an Mozilla, für diese selbstherrliche despektierliche, anmaßende und User abwertenden Zwangsupdates von Firefox. Ich brauche keine großen Bruder oder schlimmeres der sich um meine Sicherheit kümmert. Mozilla hat damit genau das getan was sie an Microsoft und anderen kritisieren, die niemals so weitgehend würden wie Mozilla. Das ist wirklich übele Bevormundung. Ich bereue denen mal Geld gespendet zu haben weil ich dachte die stehen für Freie, mündige Menschen und die Selbstbestimmung des Individuums. Von mir gibt es keine Cent mehr so lange das so ist. Zum kotzen; sich selbst mit Gemeinnützigkeit beweihräuchernde Gutmenschen, die sich Zeugen Jehovas gleich ausführen. Die machen auch Zwangsupdates und manipulieren andere. Pfui. So was finde man eigentlich nur in der Kirche und bei totalitären Systemen. In einer Demokratie hat das nichts verloren. Ich frage mich wie tief der geistige Abgrund bei denen inzwischen wirklich ist seit sie das gemacht haben und was sie wirklich denken. Denn mit dieser Sache muss ich die meisten ihrer Aussagen als gelogen betrachten. Menschen die wirklich für die Mündigkeit und Freiheit des Menschen stehen und diese respektieren, bauen nicht in eine Software von der sie zuvor Menschen abhängig gemacht haben Zwangsupdates ein und erklären sie ohne den Einzelnen zu kennen pauschal für zu dumm selbst zu bestimmen und auf die eigen Sicherheit zu achten. Das ist abwertend und menschenverachtend arrogant. Schlimmer noch das schafft bestenfalls abhängige Menschen, die verlernen auf ihre Sicherheit zu achten. Der Große Bruder macht es ja. Vieleiche wird Firefox ja von der NSA gesponsert, das wäre so deren Handschrift. Mit so was bereitet man den Weg für totalitäre System aber nicht für die Freiheit!

Firefox updated itself. There is now a new "line" occupying the screen & I don't want it. 1st line: File, edit, view, etc - the usual useful stuf. 2nd line: a box - which occupies useful real-estate and does nothing (shows current screen...) . I'd like to get rid of that. 3rd line: shows the url & a few other bits & pieces - useful. 4th line: regularly used web sites - useful. Then the main screen. As noted - the 2nd line uses screen real estate & has no use. How do I get rid of it? Was not there on the old version.

In Firefox settings, Firefox new tab, and in these mozilla forums, my add-ons are disabled. Specifically Vimium, and I get this message when hovering over the Vimium icon: "Vimium is not running on this page.

Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, usually for security reasons.

Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that matter) work on this page."

How can I enable this, and possibly all normally active add-ons in these pages?
