I use my bookmarks to keep track of fanfiction I want to read on archiveofourown.org. The site features a 'history' section itself. Recently I noticed that stories I've bookmarked say that I've visited them way more than I have. The 'How many times you've visited this page' ranges between 30 and 500 times for each story, when I've only actually clicked on them once myself as I bookmarked them. Is firefox constantly opening/pinging my bookmarks and is that what is being reflected on archiveofourown.org?

Thanks!

Please change back the URL bar ever since it was added a month ago or whenever it has been SO annoying. I'm about to change browsers because I cannot stand it anymore. It is visually unattractive and obnoxious looking.

Also, highlighted text in it is a blue font color with no highlight. Why is this different from every other Windows program?? It is not easy to tell that text is highlighted. It should be HIGHLIGHTED blue with a white font color.

Hi,

I am an Etsy shop owner. I have been told that Firefox is the best browser to use for adding new listings and editing existing listings in my Etsy shop.

However, the problem that I am having with Firefox is this: when I want to either add a listing or edit one, I get a yellow bar at the top that says: A website is slowing down your computer, either click stop it or wait. I have tried both and both give me the same problem. The 'radio' buttons become unusable on the site and I cannot click on them anymore (such as the Publish button, for example). So I am unable to save any of my work and must just shut down. I have also tried do nothing and this just freezes everything.

This is very very frustrating and counterproductive. PLEASE HELP ME!

Moving my passwords from old profile to profile in a newer version of firefox

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

I think I have successfully downloaded DeepSleep and opened the tar file using 7-zip.

I cannot figure out how to start it, or if will start at all.

The comments I see on the web seem to indicate that is not compatible with Windows. but the documentation says it is?

The app I have downloaded and untared does not seem to open. It does not show in my Control Panels apps list.

What I am seeing on the web is that it is a very complicated install and requires other modules, like python?

Is there some way a novice can get this going easily?

Thanks

Why can't I access, comment on Facebook now with the new upgrade? I'm ready to just delete Firefox and go with Safari, and hopefully never the dreadful Google Chrome.

I need help. I'm certain it's just a checkbox somewhere but I don't have hours to peruse multiple articles and online gibberish to try to find it.

Can someone actually help - Not the standard I tried, this and that, but actual help and definitive direction?

Every day the first time I run Firefox I get a popup in the top right corner saying 'Get the new Microsoft Edge". I've seen the links to turning off 'Get tips, tricks and suggestion' in settings; this is a company laptop and that is set to off by my company.

The thing is I do have Edge and I use it, it just isn't my default browser. Any suggestion?

Hi guys, I have a problem with firefox. The option to undo close tab (whether its the shortcut, or the right click on tabs menu) doesn't work correctly for me, it always open a randomly closed page from a while ago and not the recently closed one.

I thought it was a problem with how I close the tabs (ie. if i click on the x or ctrl+w, or the mouse wheel) but it doesn't make a difference, the undo closed tab still doesn't work right.

I tried looking for a solution on here and online but found nothing concrete. So, I appreciate any help.

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

I am trying to go to real websites, for instance it will not let me go to www.equifax.com I know this is a real website, but Mozilla won't let me access it. Not only that, but once Mozilla rejects it, I can't access the site through any other browser. Please help. I need to get into these sites.
