I'm using Firefox for Windows and usually have a few set pages that appear every time I open a new window. Every now and again, I have to add, remove, or change one of these pages. The issue is that I have to see something like this whenever I want to change anything.

`https://link1.url.com/|https://link2.url.com/|https://link3.url.com/|https://link4.url.com/|https://link5.url.com/`

Naturally, whenever I open a new window in Firefox, this is automatically interpreted to open multiple pages. However, this way of displaying them is still inconvenient. I want to know if we can get something more like this.

https://link1.url.com/ https://link2.url.com/ https://link3.url.com/ https://link4.url.com/ https://link5.url.com/

Is there a way to edit the Settings UI to see a multi-line list with the ability to add, remove, or change these links individually? Thank you.

All of a sudden the Firefox password I've been using for a long time stopped working. I went through the reset process, set a new password, and it still doesn't work! What I am doing wrong? Keeps asking me to re-enter the password, and when I do, it says it's not correct. Is this a widespread known issue?

New computer (Windows 11) shows 'Old Firefox Data'. Opened hidden files. Using File Explorer found Profile Folder & renamed it 'old'. Copied and pasted 'Old Firefox Data' as new profile. Firefox would not open. Had to remove etc and Firefox worked again. Thought this maybe the easiest way to get my Bookmarks back.

PS Presume Profile Folder does not contain Thunderbird Addresses?

I moved to Firefox because I have autism and someone told me it would help block the popups and moving content that makes using the web exhausting and difficult. And it does!

The trouble is, it replaces them with something worse – a grey screen that rolls continuously from left to right. It's impossible to focus on text with such intrusive visual distraction, so I have to shut the page down. It seems to occur on so many websites that at the moment it's not worth trying to use the browser.

Half the problem is that I don't know the right term to describe it, which makes troubleshooting a bit complicated. Hopefully someone will recognise it from the description, though – if so, is there any way of stop it moving, please?

Thank you!

Dear Community,

I am trying to download a large file. Am on a course, and the main tutor has given the group a file to download. Have tried downloading this 5 times, but get little luck. The file that I would want to download is 8.5GB, and the furthest I get is about 4GB.

I have 2 questions about this.

1) I seem to have a very 'in and out internet connection. It seems to go down at times for no reason, cutting off the download. Is there anything I could do about this? How could I troubleshoot this, please? 2) Does anybody know of any special tools that I can use to download in a more efficient manner, please? Perhaps an extension for Firefox might be able to do this, perhaps? Kind Regards to Anyone Answering this Query, Marek

Dear Sir/Madam,

I need help with Mozilla Firefox 119.0.1 (64-bit) version which is almost not working internally without Internet link. When I try to open local internal site Mozilla Firefox waits to open https://www.bootstrapcdn.com/ Internet location which is unavailable because we are using the browser in isolated network and it is waiting for this site for more than 15 minutes before it opens the local site.

This is not the way we are expecting the browser to work so the question is can we disable this requests in Mozilla Firefox that we were not aware of and that are not asked from out side?

Thank you!

I use a VPN connection to access my workplace. This means that all my DNS queries MUST go through the company's VPN tunnel.

Firefox is deliberately blocking my work. The DNS over HTTPS "feature" does not work over this VPN connection.

In Firefox, there was previously the following setting: Preferences > General > Network Settings > Enable DNS over HTTPS

I REALLY NEED to have this setting restored right now.
