My problem is simple. I'm trying to use this supermarket website (continente.pt) and the website doesn't load up the images of the products. I have to reload a bunch of times until it finally does. I switched from Google chrome but apparently it was a big mistake, never thought Firefox was so crap. BTW, It's not my adblocker, turned off Enhanced tracking protection and cleared cookies. Nothing works. (on annex I show firefox and google chrome being used on the same website)

Firefox updated yestarday. I see these changes: extension are gone, theme settings were switched from Dark to Light, "Startup -> Open previous windows and tabs" option went from checked to unchecked. These things are still fine: bookmarks, saved passwords and history. Tried reverting to older Firefox version, but it didn't help so I installed the new one again. I then checked profiles in AppData folder and I see three of them. The problematic one I just described, the one that was automatically created when I tried to downgrade to previous Firefox version and the one which only contains empty "parent.lock" file. There is nothing useful in "Extensions" folders (first profile has addblock extension file which I just installed, second profile has langpack extension file). I don't particularly care about which specific extensions I used since I can just reinstall them when I need them again, but one of those extensions contained custom written scripts which were running on specific sites to help me with my work. Those scripts are what I really want to recover.

Firefox logging me out of all sites when I "delete history"

Hello,

this problem started happening around 3 or 4 days ago.

Usually, at the end of the day or before I close Firefox, I "delete browsing history" BUT only the "today" history. I know it's a weird habit (lol), but at least it logs me out of all recent browsing while keeping my sessions with older websites active (typically these older websites include stuff that I use frequently like Outlook, Google/Youtube, Twitter & other social media, Spotify, and a few other sites).

The other reason I do this is that I like my "recent history" to be ordered the way I like, so I can use it kind of like a "bookmark list".

The problem: Since about 4 days ago, each time I "delete history", ALL my accounts are signed out. Note that I don't have the option to delete cookies upon closing checked, and whenever I close Firefox without deleting history the sessions appear to be active.

I think 3 or 4 days ago there was a Firefox update? I remember at the time I was shown the extra tab with the release notes, but I didn't pay much attention. However when I noticed the issue, which was the day after, I assumed it was a new feature of the update that caused all these websites not to recognise my browser and thus ask me to log in again.

So just before going to bed, I tried 1) clearing my history for the day as I usually do, except 2) instead of closing directly after, I would go to the sites I want to remain logged in (in this case I just did Outlook, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Tiktok and Spotify), log into my accounts, and then close the browser.

So the following day, it worked "as usual"... almost... that is because when I deleted my history of the day, it logged me out of everything again. But in the "recent history" list, it showed the updated list (with the websites I re-logged into the day before).

So I can't guess what is happening, other that something is messing with my cookies each time I delete history. I even went to check manually to see if I still had the session cookies stored in Firefox and it appears to be the case.

Yesterday I also tried logging into a Google, waiting a few hours, and only deleting the history of the past hour, but the same thing happens, I instantly get logged out.

Additional info: when I "delete history" I only check the first five options (those under history) and not the lower two (under data).

Thanks for your help, and sorry for my English !

Problems importing my saved passwords from Chrome to Firefox and syncing them

I currently use Chrome on Android & Chromebook as my main browser, but I would like to switch to using Firefox now across all my devices (linux, android, chromebook). To do this, I need to import my passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and have them sync between the Firefoxes on all of my devices, but it's not working. I have tried the following:

Method 1: I installed Chrome on my new Linux machine. Checked and made sure it had synced my passwords by logging into a website using Chrome. Then, on Firefox, I pressed alt to enable the toolbar, then File->Import from another browser. The pop-up says "No programs that contain bookmarks, history, or password data could be found."

Method 2: Chrome seems to have a feature to export the passwords to csv. So I exported the passwords from Chrome to a csv on Linux. To be thorough (because I am having trouble getting this to work), I used accounts.firefox.com to sign out the Firefox on my android phone and chromebook, then (on the phone) I deleted my browsing data, uninstalled firefox, and rebooted the phone. Back on Linux, I did about:config, then set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled to true, then did about:logins then menu->"import from a file", selected the csv that I just exported from Chrome, and clicked Import. Import Complete, 332 logins added, 1 not added because it was missing a password. Logins successfully imported, hooray! For testing purposes, I create a unique new password entry, http://foo.com username "a" password "b". Then I go to about:preferences, make sure that syncing is on and I'm currently syncing logins and passwords, and press "sync now". Log in to my phone, install Firefox from the play store, start it up, sign in using my email and password (it says "syncing"), go to logins and passwords, click "saved logins". The only one listed is for foo.com, the fake one I created to test the syncing, but I expected to see all 333 there.

How do I get this to work?

1) When I played a video on Youtube with Firefox via my computer speakers, they worked flawlessly. 2) Then I plugged in my headphones via the headphones jack, there is no sound. 3) I went to Windows settings and checked the volume mixer and tested the sound, the headphones worked. 4) I opened Edge and played a video on Youtube, the headphones work flawlessly. 5) I played a video through my media player, the headphones work flawlessly.

So my conclusion is that it is Firefox that is broken.

I closed Firefox and restarted it and tried steps 1 to 5 above, still got the same results. Firefox did not play any sound over the headphones while all the others worked flawlessly.

I restarted my computer and tried the steps again and still got the same results.

I also deleted Cookies and Site data from Firefox settings and still no luck.

Any suggestions?

I have used Firefox for years. Yesterday, somehow "Pocket" login is all I can see on the bookmarks drop down menu and my bookmarks toolbar is blank. I can see the toolbar, but nothing is on it. I disabled the Pocket add-on, selected the toolbar and bookmarks to Always Show. None of the suggestions I found in the community have helped. I do not have a Customize option in the "hamburger" menu as I have seen in recommended.

I have gone into Settings and deselected everything Pocket.

I have to go into the menu, which shows "recent" bookmarks, and then have to search the bookmarks.

How can I get my bookmarks back on the toolbar and get rid of Pocket. Thank you!

Cannot logon danish e-boks.dk from Firefox with MitID authentication used for banking and communication with the authorities. Using using Firefox on Windows 10. MitID says it is a recent Firefox update causing the problem. Use another browser, they say. Mobile phone Samsung/Android browser has a similar problem. So maybe the problems are also in MitID updates and MitID tests have only been carried out on Google Chrome and MS Edge :(

I've noticed some websites (Vimeo for example) display headline text in what appears to be Russian? or some other language with "Russian-looking" characters. These same websites display text correctly with Safari. But when I visit those same websites using Firefox on my second MAC, the text is displayed correctly. Very strange!!! (Firefox language preferences are set correctly).
