I'm trying to import my passwords from chrome and cannot get it to work. I've set signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled to true and have tried both directly importing from chrome and creating a csv file and copying from that, but chrome won't copy passwords over directly and when using the csv file almost all the passwords are listed as missing fields and won't copy over. I'm unsure if there's something i'm missing in teh copy process or if i'm just stuck manually copying over passwords

I selected "Tips and Tricks" because I always feel like everyone seems to understand the answers and I do NOT.

I have and donated to Firefox since it began. I think it is a great idea. I have severe dyslexia and ADHD.

I keep add-ons to a minimum and my home page free of everything. I use menus to find what I need. Having short-cuts all over is too distracting. When FF is not available and have to use another browser, I find it very difficult: they are loud, busy and ads are all over.

I am finding "help" more and more difficult to understand. Do the folks realize that I don't use computers all day long? That some people don't use the same definitions as people who work with computers? (I tried to find the meaning of "default" with 0 results, phrased the question many ways.)

I am hoping a beginners guide review would help, as thing have changed since Firefox was new or "Firefox for Dummies" was written!

Is is/are there basic manuals? Please help. ("Please don't respond with what help are you looking for" - that will not help the next problem).

So I've noticed that after putting my computer to sleep, upon return Firefox will be unable to load any videos from seemingly any site. The temporary solution to this is to reset my computer as sign offs, locks or returning to sleep do not clear the issue. I've tested on different browsers/sites and can confirm that this is exclusive to firefox. I have booted firefox in troubleshoot mode, cleared my history and given the sites time to load with no luck on any of them.

Is there a solution to this?

There are no controls shown on YouTube unless i either hide the taskbar or scroll down both of which is a nuisance.

I have some issue with spacebar on some sites with firefox. like in google search, the spacebar refuse to display two or more blank space in a row when the bar is pressed more than once. instead each press is added in the same blank space. means for example if i press space 4 times, only one space appear, but to delete that single blank space i need to press the "back space" key 4 times.

Similar problem with the search bar on the cookie setting (the page in preference where you can manage or delete your cookie list). several time the search bar doesn't write the letters i type. But copy/paste a text work, only keyboard doesn't work. I need to close and re-open the tab for the keyboard working again on the cookie list search bar.

Hello, can you add better support playback on .mp4 videos? Seems with Firefox it's a hit-and-miss with some .mp4 videos that will play and some that will just show "No video with supported format and MIME type found".

All other browsers will play .mp4 videos without an issue but Firefox won't.

If you can provide better .mp4 playback support that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Here's one of those videos for an example: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1Fv6SdftiCXeYPQOdF17H2JNpwjMu9P7q


Pretty much a URL string like example.com/videosample.mp4

between this netflix error, this amazon alert, and youtube auto switching to 360p it's become increasingly difficult to access media. i've called netflix about this and they had no idea what the code was and have not gotten back to me with a resolution.

does anyone know what's causing these issues? is it just companies being hostile to firefox specifically or is something wrong?

i've cleared my cookies and cache, i've restarted several times, i've logged in and out of everything. i'm on version 120.0.1

I do a search - then get a page full of hits. I scroll down and click to open one eBay listing - and it creates a new window to the right. I scroll down and click to open another eBay listing - and it creates another window to the right. Pretty soon I have a dozen windows on the right, and this is slowing down my internet experience, until I manually close each one out.

Why can we no longer hit the "Back" arrow and return to the same place on that page?

Hi, for the past few Firefox releases, I run into a problem where the mouse cursor does not change into a "hand" when hovering over something clickable. Instead, it continues to keep its arrow form. This is not simply a cosmetic issue, as it appears to cause issues with websites that rely on hovering for drop-down menus, as well as clicking on YouTube videos, for example.

The issue briefly resolves itself when I restart or reset Firefox, but it always comes back within a few hours. I have also tried disabling all extensions to see if there is any improvement.

I want to delete all my web certs except for the top seven, which cover 99.32% of current web certs. I specifically do NOT want the EU Cyber Resilience Act to have the ability to insert their certs into my root store, enabling their member countries unfettered power to compel acceptance of their certs.

I tried following https://wiki.mozilla.org/CA/Changing_Trust_Settings, but this must be for an earlier version. I don't seem to have an Options/Preferences window. On the other hand I am pretty old & maybe just can't find it....

Any hints on how to do this?

Firefox has always maintained that current tabs will be restored after a reboot of the browser, and indeed that was the case for the first half-dozen years I've been a subscriber. That has not been the case for the past 4 - 6 months however. I have the correct Settings for this, so it is not on my end. Why do I always get a fresh Firefox browser whenever I update the version (which is quite regular lately . . . maybe a new version of Firefox every 3 weeks). Please help.

I am currently encountering an issue where firefox is giving me the PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR despite for no immediately apparent reason. I cannot access any website in Firefox.

Steps taken:

- I've deleted cache/cookies. - Disabled all firewalls and anti-virus software. - Removed all plugins / extensions. - Did a clean install of firefox (while keeping my profile). - Restarted my modem/router.

I have no proxy/vpn, so these are not issues.

Please help me!

Machine is Windows 10 with a Logitech wireless keyboard. Latest Firefox browser. Not always but sometimes when using Firefox browser to log in somewhere or enter data on some web site, I'll get an incorrect entry for a key stroke. e.g. I enter a 0 and get a 1. But if I enter a 1 I get a 1. So far the error key has always been different.

I've tested things by launching a notepad or Word document and entering the character and in those all works fine. But go back to Firefox and I get the error again. What I have to do is to close and re-launch Firefox and so far this fixes things. It's an intermittent problem which forces me to keep another browser on the machine and ready. Imagine entering a password when all of a sudden you type 'X' and it gives you an 'E'. Really frustrating!

Running Firefox 120.0.1 on Windows 10. I also run Vivaldi and test with Chrome. I installed Google Analytics Opt-Out add-ons on FF, Vivaldi, and Chrome. When I go to any site with links to X (Twitter), and click on the link, instead of that link appearing the last X link I went to appears. If I click again I get to the correct link.

When I disable the Google Analytics Opt-Out add-on all works fine. This doesn't happen with either of the Chromium browsers, so I'm thinking there's something happening in Firefox by avoiding Google analytics that isn't in the Chromium browsers. In addition, this behavior began within the past couple of weeks of recent FF updates.

I installed several different Google Analytics add-ons and the same thing happened in FF, but not in the Chromium browsers.

Any ideas? I know I can disable the analytics crushers but I really don't want Google hijacking my browsing.
