Hi all!

So, in my personal opinion, the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension is of course much better than sliced bread, and in fact, among the very best concepts ever implemented by sw developers. So good, that it's the reason why still use Firefox. I would never use Chrome, and I know for sure that all those who use it have zero idea just how much, and in what malicious ways, Google has built in settings that theoretically allow to keep your browsing r-e-l-a-t-i-v-e-l-y private (just so that Google can always claim "users CAN keep their browsing details = personal details private"). But the default in Chrome is always sniffin'. And more sniffin'. And more sniffin'. Think: That's Google's ENTIRE business purpose. And particularly for all products they make "free". Just think of gmail. LOL

So, now everyone believes my enthusiasm for Firefox and its extension Firefox Multi-Account Containers, right?

That allows me to post a suggestion for further improvement. And I DDG'ed much, where to give extension feedback, but sadly every feedback avenue is closed. You know. So, better here than nowhere:

IMPROVEMENT SUGGESTION FOR Firefox Multi-Account Containers

======================================

Current behavior: It auto-recognizes in which container to open a URL by looking at the domain part, only.

Current behavior also: It "forgets" the container entirely, when you reopen firefox with prior tabs, and you had consciously opened a particular page in a different container than the associated one.


Desired modification: A checkmark to toggle per container, if we really want container recognition by domain part only, or by a little more than that. See explanation below.

Desired behavior also: Firefox should reopen the browser with prior tabs LIKE THEY WERE, ie if a tab purposefully was in a different container before closing firefox, then obviously upon reopening firefox after bootup it should still be in that different container, and not be now totally UNassociated, aka in no container, like it currently is. - This point I find obvious, it requires no explanation.

The first modification would allow instances like these: - I have multiple, legit, email accounts, and open them in Roundcube, part of Cpanel of my webhosts. - Work email addresses open in "Work" container, Private email addresses in "Private" container, and so forth. - ALL Roundcube tabs (or whatever you might use) login at https://domain.com:2096/ but obviously with different usernames and pw's. - But currently Firefox cannot differentiate that, because it only looks at the domain part, domain.com

How about a checkmark allowing users to select one way or the other for a container? - unchecked: like now - checked: Firefox will differentiate the entire domain up to the first / aka, it will be able to differentiate subdomains, :2096 's (ports?), and similar stuff, because that's all BEFORE the first /

Could this suggestion please be made viral :) such that the extension developer(s) become aware of it?

Is there a way to stop Firefox from suggesting/autocompleting the root URL of pages I've bookmarked? For example, say I've bookmarked https://www.mysite.com/pageone and named it "My Site - Page 1". If I start typing "my" in the URL bar, the very first suggestion is https://www.mysite.com, instead of my bookmark.

NOTE: I have disabled ALL other suggestions other than bookmarks, including common/popular sites (i.e. typing "goo" will not autocomplete with google, because I have not bookmarked any google sites)

I didn't bookmark the root URL, so I don't want it to be suggested. Any way to disable this behavior?

Thanks!

I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

For some time now (at least a year), I've noticed that the colors in videos are slightly off. The problem never affects still images, just videos (on every site).

Most users wouldn't notice the problem as it's quite subtle, but all the hues are all slightly off: Reds are slightly more yellow than they should be, yellows are slightly redder, blues are slightly more cyan, and cyans are slightly bluer.

I don't use other browsers so not sure if this is a Firefox problem or a wider problem.

I don't have Flash installed so (presumably) the videos run in HTML5.

Just yesterday some common redirect sites like adfocus and adfly stopped loading in nightly. example: http://adfoc.us/serve/?id=27122877684764

I'm guessing this was done fore security reasons as most people would fall for the fake downloads (or sometimes the entire page redirecting to a new tab when clicked anywhere on it), but it would be great if an option could be added to allow it to load like with: [hey cor-el ask for the link since I don't want this post to get removed :P]

since if you know what you are doing you do eventually work your way to the correct download even if it involves inspecting > deleting the invisible buttons covering the page...

There might already be something in about:config to do it so if so please let me know.

When viewing a video powered by a Brightcove player, the playback control bar on the bottom does not hide when entering full screen mode. I have tried moving the mouse in all areas of the screen, play/paused it with the spacebar/mouseclick, and tried several other methods but it simply does not want to disappear. An example of a website that uses the Brightcove player is the IPL website. You can click here to access one of the videos on the site.

I have tested this with other browsers and the playback control disappears as it should when entering full screen so it seems to be some issue with Firefox. I recently contact Brightcove support and they were not able to replicate the issue on their version of Firefox and just recommended I use a different browser. But it would be really helpful if someone could help me fix this strange bug.

Thank you.
