I just updated my Firefox Developer edition and it completely deleted every add on and customization I had on my browser. Same for Firefox for iOS.

I have an "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop but I have no real way to make it work with the newly downloaded and overwritten new browser.

Am I the only person who's really sad about this?

Also, on the iOS browser I'm no longer able to create a BLANK PAGE as a start page for BOTH HOME AND NEW TAB.

How do I create that? There's no option in the dropdown on the mobile settings. And it does not allow me to type in about:blank and then select in the mobile settings. It just stays red and then disappears when I try to do it again.

Why did you rearrange the furniture so HARD?????

Thank you, Still reinstalling all my add ons after 2 days, Jean

The tab under Inspect Element -> Inspector -> The column right beneath filter styles column has this feature that suggests you some css properties. On my browser they get filled in more than once, endlessly I might say (without me pressing any button). This makes it very hard to add any css styles and I'd like to know how to stop this behaviour.

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 ?

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

After updating to version 94.0b9, the program began to slow down terribly. This is especially pronounced on YouTube: you select a search, enter a request, open two or three tabs from the proposed one with a possibly useful video ... That's it! You can go to a cafe for coffee and rolls. It became impossible to use the browser.

How to roll back to the previous version of the program?

Sub.: now Firefox Developer Edition 94.0b9 for Linux

Hello,

I am a Web Developer, fixing a website for my client. After the page is cached in Mozilla Firefox the layout breaks, when I clean the cache everything is back to normal. This issue is only present in Mozilla Firefox, I don't have that issue with Google Chrome.

Website URL: https://www.impeccablex.com/ Please see the screenshots attached, you can see the layout before and after.

I have tried almost everything that I could think of, don't know what to try next. Any suggestions?

Thank you in advance! Best Regards, Mario C.

In my "saved addresses" list under the Privacy and Security section of Firefox Settings, there are two addresses of people that have never used my computer. One formerly went to my school, and the other is a stranger. I can think of no way that they could have had access to my account at any time. Are there any other possible explanations for this?

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.

I deal with www.vistaprint.co.uk The website opens, but I am unable to log in as the page freezes. I phoned Vistaprint and they told me never to use Firefox as it has problems, but to use Chrome. www.vistaprint.co.uk works normally with both Chrome and Windows Edge, but I prefer Firefox. Why do sites not work properly with my preferred browser - Firefox?

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

Apple Voice Control dictation into Firefox

I just bought a new Mac, and I am learning to use voice control, and voice control does not work to dictate into appropriate text boxes with FireFox. I have verified with Apple support but this is not 100% a FireFox problem, because it turns out the voice control is very iffy in multiple non-Apple programs (Photoshop, BBEdit), and it is iffy in multiple Apple programs as well--sometimes it works with Mail and sometimes it does not. While I do hope that my advisor will be able to get back to me eventually with a solution, I am searching for other ways to address the issue.

The biggest problem for my uses is lack of function with with Firefox. Sometimes it works if I start some dictation in an open textedit file, and then switch to an already open browser window and text box in Firefox. Sometimes this does not work.

I did find another conversation in the Apple forums where someone was using chrome and they were able to adjust a chrome setting for "native accessibility API support" but even though I found this setting in Firefox about:config and set it to true, I'm still having the problem.

Any tips on settings that can be adjusted to increase the chances of success with voice control?

Now on macOS Monterey 12.0.1 and FireFox beta channel 94.0. Problem first noticed before update from Big Sur to Monterey; have not attempted to enable Voice Control on prior versions of MacOS or prior computers.
