Just recently I noticed that Firefox 83.0 is no longer retaining my viewer settings in YouTube. Specifically the theater mode and autoplay settings. I can set it to theater mode, and turn off autoplay, and the next time I start Firefox, they are back to their defaults (autoplay on, compact viewer). At first I thought it was a YouTube issue but have tried it on Chrome and Chromium and both browsers save my settings. I'm running ArcoLinux 5.9.10 with I3 WM on both my desktop and laptop. I have both reset and re-installed FF with no change.

hello folks,

I'm getting very annoyed with the paranoia of corporate America and I my machines are all heavily customized. and I've managed to cut off all ties with corporate people because they are very big time wasters because most of their customers are very uninformed. but that's OK. I just happen to be a rare case. I posted this question elsewhere and asked some other very competent people about this. It is here:

[https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/foru.../location-of-firefox-saved-form-data/]

however, the addressed a very similar issue. really the point of this effort by me is to save anything and everything that BANKS put on my machines so i don't have to talk to CSR's when they change their security and annoy customers with changing auth and auth. I just ran into it again with HSBC 10 minutes ago and wasted 20 minutes doing redundant tasks with a CSR to unlock the account. can you guys tell me what is in each one of the files listed in the image I've attached? I can do it myself with github tools, but I'd rather save time and get it from the pros here, assuming someone here knows. I just need summaries. Not specifics. I can figure it out from there. If someone could give a hint if this doesn't look like a suspicious post, that would be nice.

thanks.

After removing one of my extensions from my toolbar (Last.fm Scrobbler for YouTube), it didn't show up in my customize page so I reinstalled it and even though it's still fully functional, it doesn't show up on my toolbar or my customize page. Resetting my customization settings to their default didn't help either.

I can't seem to connect to Google.com anymore. I get

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

as the error. I've tried various things like deleting certificates, refreshing firefox, and even uninstalling firefox. Nothing works and I don't want to go back to Edge. Google.com works fine on edge, and I have a document saved as a start up tab that works fine on firefox. Drive also doesnt work, but accounts.google.com works so I can sign in.

Okay I just uploaded the new version of firefox I think 83, and every time I restart my computer or anything like that I have to re-log back into EVERYTHING. All my google accounts everything that require a password. It has for the most part my passwords saved but it i a huge hassle especially since I work from home it eats up a lot of time.

It doesn't save my tabs I had left open either. I can get them back when I go to sync tabs but I have to do it one at a time. It literally takes me back to the "Important News: Changes to your Firefox" page every time and its been days and its super frustrating. If I have to do this every time I will have to switch over to chrome which would be a bummer. I have tried fixing it in my preferences section of firefox and made sure everything is lining up there so it should be saving my info but no matter what I do it just takes me back to that page along with my ad blocker and honey page as if it was my first time signing in

Please help I can't do this every time I log in

Hey guys,

Has anybody seen this?

As of the last few days, Firefox is starting to show jobs at Glassdoor like the image sent here, as per Glassdoor I have cleared the cache and cookies, but it still shows it like this, they also suggested to use another browser, which I did and they don't show it the same way, I don't know if this is a bug in Firefox or a problem in Glassdoor's code, but it's pretty annoying.

Thanks,

I have the DuckDuckGo search engine as the only search engine in my list of search engines. There is a very annoying issue with the way Firefox handles searches.

When I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box two things can happen after hitting Enter to perform the search. If the cursor was positioned just below the search box where Change Search Settings button is located, after hitting Enter the the search defaults to the Options/Search page. This requires reloading my home page retyping my search query and ensure that the cursor isn't located over the Change Search Settings. Since the search engine textbox is located high up on the page instead of in the middle my cursor frequently ends up positioned over the Change Search Settings button. Since I am only using one search engine, it would be great if the Change Search Settings button could be disabled. Can This be done? I haven't been able to disable it with Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit).

I mainly use Firefox. I worked offline on a couple of mails on yahoo webmail, intending to send them in the morning. On waking up, I went online to send wanted to send them, but they could not. Needless to say, the texts of those mails have been lost and were not saved as drafts. All my firefox pages, old and new, now open as bare pages, without links, formatting, pics or functionalities. I am not even able to upload here an image of my screen on a typical page. My email is [email]@yahoo.com.

Hi,

Writing in some distress here. Had Firefox open with a lot of tabs, most relevantly hundreds of pages relevant for my PhD research, when my computer decided to re-start on its own. When I opened Firefox afterward I was greeted by the "What's new with Firefox" page, all my tabs gone. Both "Recently Closed Tabs" and "Recently Closed Windows" were completely empty. "Restore Previous Session" is greyed out and unclickable. After looking up solutions to this problem online I went to my profile at C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, and discovered there was no sessionstore-backups folder there. There is a file called sessionstore.js, but it has last been modified May 2017. I checked and my history is still all there. Is there anything I can do, or do I need to go over the thousands upon thousands of entries there in search of the ones relevant for my research?
