I recently changed my browser from chrome to fire fox but all my passwords are saved on chrome. I tried to import them on firefox but nothing gets imported from chrome. There is no autofill option for passwords here. I clicked on the three dots and did everything it said on the website but still the error message keeps popping up saying " An error occurred while trying to save this password". I tried going in the Passwords option and doing it manually but then the error message comes every time. Im using Firefox on my laptop.

Firefox just updated a few minutes ago, and since the update my background in every website I visit is white. Previously my backgrounds were all black due to my Windows 10 "High Contrast Theme" being activated. Well since the update it seems Firefox "ignores" the Windows Theme settings and overrides them with its own. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make websites display with a black background like they did before the update. I hope this gets fixed.

My menu items are now (9/7/2021) White and double-spaced. Why does FireFox change things that don't need changing with no path back. First, they changed menu color to default to another (I think same as Toolbar color) with no recourse. Now the menus are white and double spaced (today! out of the blue sky!!). FireFox, at LEAST make these features configurable. Why do you do this?

Firefox times out when connecting to a site with URL redirection unless HTTPS protocol is explicitly typed

I am running Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b9 on macOS Monterey 12.0 Beta 6 (21A5506j).

I noticed lately that I couldn't open some sites, either when I tried to follow a link or typed the URL in the address bar. After a few trials and errors, I think I have identified a pattern but no idea of what the root cause is:

  • the sites I am trying to access all redirect to a different URL;
  • I can open the sites just fine if I explicitly type `https://` in the address bar.

A few of the sites I am struggling with:

I noticed that I could open the above URLs just fine in a Private window, so tried the following to no avail:

  • Clear cache;
  • Restart Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode (still on as I am writing this);
  • Install Firefox Beta side-by-side;
  • Completely uninstall Firefox and remove the existing profile, before doing a fresh install.

None of the above solutions work and I am a bit stumped. Safari, Chrome and Brave all work fine.

When some websites use DRM Software's I must Disable my extensions to play the video. How can I disable the add-ons to the specific website? And if it cannot be done how can I disable all my extensions at once. Without un-ticking one by one?

Because every time I visit the website with DRM I must Go one by one to disable my add-ons.

Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

Hi! I'm going nuts. I have Firefox set to NOT remember sessions when I close and re-open. But every time I re-open the (latest) Firefox on my (up to date) Mac, 3 tabs reappear. It doesn't matter how often I delete history or cookies or empty caches. They are not even 3 tabs from the most recent session! They are from a week ago. And no, they are not pinned tabs!

And yes, I have reinstalled Firefox.

Any idea what I should do?

Many thanks!

For the first time in over a DECADE I went to Log Onto Tracfone.com to check on the cost of buying a One Year Service Card, which is what I have done at this time of the year for OVER A DECADE!

The following Tracfone Problems are occurring on Firefox BUT Working Just Fine on EDGE (1) My attempt to Log On with what I KNOW is the Correct User ID and Password keeps reporting "Invalid User ID or Password" (2) Attempting to tell Tracfone to send a Password Reset Link FAILS. NOTHING Happened, just a short flash where it is trying to process the request. (3) Attempting to have Tracfone Verify what my Username is FAILS. Again, NOTHING Happened, just a short flash where it is trying to process the request.

As I have stated, I had NO PROBLEM Logging On using EDGE! And had No Problem on EDGE requesting Tracfone to Change my Password and it is this Password Firefox keeps screwing up on the Tracfone Logon Screen because it keeps reporting "Invalid User ID or Password")

PS-This type or problem is ONLY HAPPENING WITH THE TRACFONE WEBSITE!

With Firefox 91, I can no longer disable the hideous Proton changes to tabs. Separating tabs from their content is a really poor user interface decision. It makes it harder to tell which tab is the current tab. With Proton, the active tab is slightly brighter than the inactive tabs. For older folks and color blind folks, this makes it all but impossible to to tell which tab is active.

If you won't come to your senses and revert this bad user interface decision, then at least add an official option to disable it and go back to the old tab style that other browsers use. If you won't do that, then I will just have to use a different browser. Which makes me very sad, because aside from your bad sense in user interface design, I loved Firefox.

1. When I choose the default browser app in Windows settings, It displays Firefox twice. https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2021-08-19-19-10-04-f5ef95.png

HTML5, YouTube, and Netflix video playback does nothing

Playing HTML5, Youtube, or Netflix video does not work at all for me - Netflix throws an error code, while Youtube and HTML5 simply never stop loading.

I've tried

  • Starting Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
  • Clearing the cache and cookies for the given website
  • Refreshing Firefox

On the chromium-based edge browser, video playback works normally.

DRM-controlled content playback is enabled, hardware acceleration is disabled, allowing auto-play doesn't help, and neither does disabling Tracking Protection.
