Unable to complete backup of firefox profile because of over-length file names in storage sub-directory. Is is ok to simply delete one or more file names which are old URL's and no longer required? Clear History All doesn't clean them out. (Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on WIndows 10) thanks

When I ask WordPress to "preview in new tab," I get a File Not Found screen. (See uploaded image.) This works fine in Chrome (which I rarely use) but not in Firefox, so I'm thinking it might be a Firefox issue. The Tablet and Mobile previews work fine, but they don't require a new tab. I thought it might have to do with pop-ups, so I made my blog's URL an exception. That didn't help. Then I disabled the pop-up blocker altogether. That didn't help either. I've never had this problem before although I've been using both Firefox and WordPress for many years. I'm working on an old laptop (current one is kaput), but I think everything's up to date. Windows 10. Any idea what the problem might be? TIA for any help. This is driving me nuts!

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

When I change the brightness of my computer while Firefox is open, the changes are not saved when I close Firefox. For example, if I lower my brightness from 100 to 80 while Firefox is open, once I close Firefox, the brightness of my screen increases back to 100 after a few seconds. Similarly, when I reopen Firefox, my brightness drops from 100 to 80 as that was the setting the brightness was set at when Firefox was closed. This does not happen with any other program, especially other browsers, that I have on my computer. Do any of you experience or know of this problem and do you have any advice on how to fix the issue?

(I have tried booting Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode, refreshing Firefox and reinstalling Firefox. My computer is also up to date on the latest Windows updates. This issue was not always present with Firefox and only began recently, within the last two weeks.)

When I join a Google Hangout and try to share my entire screen, Firefox always prompts me whether to share a window or the entire screen. I always want to share the entire screen. But when I enable the checkbox for "Remember this decision" I get this warning: Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen.

Why does this happen? Is it because I'm on a unbuntu or is it specific to ubuntu Catalina?

I know there's [[an article|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/sync-custom-preferences#w_sync-custom-preferences]] on how to sync custom preferences. I wanted to sync my toolbar customizations and some other preferences like disabling disk caching. And I don't even have other firefox instances, instead I just want to sync only on one device, so that I can continue the same setup when I signin later on the same device.

I've tried to add services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state, "services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.cache.disk.enable" and set it to true. But it doesn't work. What am I missing? No one seems to address this. May I am missing something.

RE: Firefox extremely slow to load pages or connect to Web sites after startup

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1. My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easie… (read more)

It's June 2022, and I am using FF64 101.0.1.

My issue is best described by Zaayl (2017) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157490, but the working and easiest solution I found was the one offered by delclemons (2018) at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1229621#question-reply.

My starting page is blank. I have an extension that shows my external IP as a country flag when FF starts up. If the flag doesn't show, I know I still cannot connect to any site. Similar to Zaayl's case, my FF can be able to connect to sites only after a certain amount of time, which varies from instant - very rarely - up to over 10 minutes. The wait always gets longer, especially when FF crashes and have to restart.

I've been searching a long, long time for the right fix. I cringe at the idea that I have to reinstall FF every time there's a major issue, like this one. Syncing back bookmarks and passwords and reinstalling the extensions are the easy part. The painful part is having to set details of accounts in the containers afterwards. I am so glad that is over now. Connection to sites is no longer prolonged after FF startup.

I wanted to thank the persons concerned, but I couldn't reply to their messages, which are now archived. So, I decided to post a new one here to do that; also, to help users who have to same issue as mine.

I am trying to add a secondary email address (a Zoho email address) to my Firefox account (my primary is a gmail address). I receive the verification code in zoho email. I enter the verification code into the required space for Firefox to verify and accept that I am me and that's my email, and I get an error message that the code is invalid.

    I did this twice.  I checked that I entered the info correctly.  I entered the code within the 5-minute timeframe.  Both times I got the same message - the code is invalid.  It will not verify my secondary email address.  
   Very frustrating.

I am no longer able to copy and paste an article in its original format. I no longer can copy and paste any image, including copying and pasting screenshots, without them going into attachments. I know this is not a google issue because my wife uses chrome-which I do not like-and I can copy and paste articles and images accurately on chrome. I do not wish to use chrome, or upgrade to windows 11. I have tried refreshing firefox, uninstalling and re-installing to default settings, and nothing works to restore this ability to me in firefox.

Currently the fonts at the top of the page (tab headers, address bar, search bar, booksmarks) are all set to a larger font. I don't know how they got changed but they are too big now. If I try change font size and style in settings nothing happens. It is not how it looked on first install and using another browser has font sizes of a more practical size. I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling Firebox and also doing a refresh and it doesn't change anything.

Its almost like a bug that has made Firefox set these fonts larger than they should and not able to modifying them again.

I cannot for the life of me work out how to fix this and its very off putting to the point, short of a full OS reinstall I'll have to start using another browser.
