My C drive needed replacement. I reinstalled Firefox and copied the profile from the old C to the new C. That did not work. I uninstalled and tried again with the report back that the files names were too long. The old disk is still in the computer with a new designation. I tried installing again to the old drive that has all the original data. That did not work. (I do have a saved copy of the profile) I'd like all my settings, but at least the bookmarks. Firefox doesn't seem to have importing from another Firefox, so I can do that. How do I import bookmarks from the Firefox on my old disk. Help would be appreciated. Thank you

I used THIS link to change mousewheel.with_control.action to 5, which allows for using the scroll wheel to pinch zoom. My only issue is that it is extremely cumbersome, with 3 full rotations of the wheel required for a 2x zoom. Is there any way to increase the amount per tick it zooms in by?

I have been accessing my Virgin media account for years from the Firefox browser. I like to access my email from Firefox. But now it won't work. However I can get into Virgin media straightforwardly from Microsoft Edge. I've tried clearing the cache (though I don't know if I did correctly) but it's made no difference to the Virgin problem.

I've read a few old threads and checked both the DRM setting and the "-Vine" as they recommended. Still no luck getting it to work. I'm posting yet another thread about this here because I'm getting a bit frustrated, frankly. Firefox is my favorite browser by far, I just wonder if anyone has found another way to fix this.

whenever I am on Amazon.com the search window constantly fills with "solo con tu pareja," a movie I once watched. When searching for an item and even when trying to buy something the search window constantly fills with this phrase. This only happens using Firefox browser I've tried clearing cache, re-setting, etc. and while I got it to stop once, as soon as I re-started computer the problem came back.

I know this is likely to be a wont-fix resolution, but I'd like to confirm that.

So if a webserver has the extremely cautious content-security header:

content-security-policy default-src 'none';

Firefox will correctly not embed video from that same domain in web pages hosted by that domain.

Fine. Good. Totally right.

When the server sets the same flag on the media file itself, Firefox's media player won't play it in browser. Even if I directly open the URL as a user, signaling my user intent to accept the risks for the file, the default player Firefox creates uses the media file's content-security-policy FOR itself.

This means the media won't load, gives an unhelpful and incorrect error message about MIME types, and the only way to view it is to actively download it and view it in local media applications.

Now, given the risks of allowing exceptions in CSP, I will understand if the development team doesn't feel this is a safe change to make, and it's on website owners to prevent this, but I don't feel it's in keeping with the intent of CSP to prevent this case.

I use to be able to work on one app/window and hover over multiple tabs to obtain brief details on the browser (tabs) as it sits behind the app/window I'm currently working on. Since about a week ago, this feature has gone away. Now I have to be on the browser to be able to hover over the tabs to obtain the info I need on the tabs. I do this to compare the order # that displays on the tabs for what I use it for. How do I get this feature back. I want to be able to hover over tabs to view the small details even when not currently on the browser itself. Please help.

Dear Community,

Been having a problem with downloading for about 2 weeks now.

I am doing a course in Ethical Hacking, and have been told to download an .ova file from the internet. The download is 8.5 GB.

However, it has failed on, now, 8 occasions. The nearest it has come, is it has downloaded 5.1 GB.

Could anybody recommend another tool to download files better and quicker? This course is now almost halfway through and I still have not managed to download the software. Any suggestions would be most welcome. Could it possibly be the case that my anti-virus, Microsoft Defender, is not letting the download through? If so, how could I switch the anti-virus off, please?

Greetings from Greece,

i use Mozilla Fieefox many years now to sync everything from home, to mobile and work. Today at work, I received a new computer with fresh Windows 11 installation, bind to an MS Domain and the latest version of Firefox installed.

With a great dissapointment i realised that i couldn't connect with my mozilla account while in the previous pc with with windows 10, worked and synced flawlesly. While pressing "Sign In" from the 3-line menu on the top right corner nothing happens, sometimes it opens a window that keeps loading and some times the login page is loaded. After inserting the email and pressing the button it takes quite some time, a red ribbon notification appears "Proccessing..." and when next screen appears and the password is entered... (it takes also quite some time) the red ribbon notification appears "Working..." and after a little while "The operation was aborted".

I've uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, cleared profiles and created new ones, took advantage of all refresh tools mozilla offers.... nothing. In fact in all 3 pc's we received today the reaction was identical. On the other hand if i try to login to mozilla throught Chrome or Edge the login process works like a charm.

Any thoughts, ideas would be very much appreciated.. could it be a Policy Problem for Windows 11 for example?!?

Thanks in advance for your time
