I set up a Linux OS on my computer and wanted to export all my login data from Firefox Quantum in Windows to it. I tried looking everywhere for what to do, but can't find anything. I've tried syncing my Firefox account, copying then pasting everything from my Firefox profile in Windows into the Firefox profile in Linux, however it only imported my bookmarks and none of my login information. Is there a way that I am missing or may have overlooked that will allow me to export all the login information so I don't have to reconfigure everything?

Up until a couple weeks ago right clicking on a pdf and selecting to take a screenshot was doing just that - allowing me to take a screenshot of the pdf in the page. Since then whenever I try to do the same, I get an error saying that this is not a standard web page. Any advice?

when I click on the frontpage, nothing happens now since the update. Also the arrow is gone to read the next page and it is impossible to consult the older newspapers (archive) - see examples.

By using Google Chrome everything is fine, no problems at all, I can read my newspaper as usual.

So the cause of this bug is Firefox!!!

Hello,

There is a small margin between the close button and the upper right corner of the screen, that prevents me from clicking the close button when I put the mouse pointer at this corner (at the end of the screen).

Because of habit and also because all other windows let me click the close button like this, I would like to ask if there is an option or a particular about:config entry in order to eliminate this margin, so that the clickable area of the close button expands to the upper right corner (end border of the screen) and regain the functionality that I have with all other windows.

Hello.

I just upgraded my OS. The upgrade included Firefox v60.0 which replaces the window manager, which I find unacceptable. Not only is this highly irritating because I use the 'Close' button on the left (and Firefox has it on the right) it also messes up the appearance (colours, transparency, icons, etc.) but also removes some of the window manager's functionality (shade, focus model, keyboard shortcuts, etc.).

How do I disable this "feature" so that I can use my system the way I want to instead of being dictated by Mozilla how I should use it?

Thank you kindly.

I have: 1) bookmarks within FF desktop 2) FF within my VM running and 3) FF on Android 4) my Firefox-account open (on Desktop and VM)

and would like to have bookmarks synchronized.

This is supposed to be easy, but it seems not to be working. I blame myself, probably I am doing something wrong.

Desktop FF: I clear all bookmarks and import a set of bookmarks the way I want it. Okay, fine. Bookmarks on desktop is fine now.

Switch to VM a just installed Firefox... I check the bookmarks and see a whooole lot of links and stuff that probably is from ancient times. I clear those, as I want the bookmarks from desktop. So... the bookmarks from my desktop are gone.

If I start with a clean bookmark list on both FF desktop and VM and import the 'set of bookmarks' that I want into FF desktop, they might be cleared again due to FF in VM has no bookmarks...?

Reason for my question: what is synchronizing with what?

Thanks.

Hi, the synchronization has stopped working on computers, although the system is logged on. Neither the bookmarks, nor the add-ons, nor the rest is synchronized. When you hover the cursor on the "update" button in the upper right corner, the "last synchronization on January 1" prompt appears (today is May 14). I did a factory default reset on one of the computers, but that did not help. I attach below the text of the file error-sync-1526289870190.txt, if this helps to understand. Thank you)

Hi. I am dealing with faded fonts on Dropbox and nothing I set seems to do any good.

I have dictated my own colors of Black on White colors or let the site style dictate colors. No difference. Great black on white when I use the View > No Style on the File Edit ... Tools Help menu bar. I use that menu because icon representations are confusing.

Linux Mint 17.3 (64-bit) MATE desktop, FF 60.0 (64-bit)

Here are some screen shots attached: 1. Dropbox Help styles enabled 2. Dropbox with No Styles 3. Set to allow wevsites to choose their own fonts 4. My color settings 5 My extensions and 6. My plugins

Getting late so I have a full day ahead, may get to turn off settings and shoot more shots later in the week.

Hello FF team.

starting with FF update 56 to 57 and so on I got this strange problem: it looks like my key4.db file gets corrupted and FF become almost useless after I access my saved passwords and then exit the browser. If I delete the key4.db file (I still have the key3.db and logins.json files in profile folder) everything works fine. The key4.db file is generated, my passwords are there and I can use them till next browser exit/restart. Here are the symptoms:

- upon start the browser directly asks for master password (normally I'm asked for the master password only when I really need it) - no browsing history is shown in the address bar - enter key and 'Go to...' button do not work at all (I can only open a site if it is bookmarked) - when I go to browser's options there is nothing under 'Search' section - in other words the content cannot be loaded or displayed - when I open 'Saved Logins' dialog there is nothing - there are no *corrupt files in my profile directory

So when this happens I have to exit the browser and delete the key4.db file. However if I don't access my saved logins during the session at all, there is no such problem. I can start/use/exit the browser as many times as I want and it works fine. So it looks like the access to the saved logins breaks something.

First off, I am an analyst and not a professional web dev person. I'm using Divi on wordpress at Bluehost. I have a website that I'm building that displays fine in all other browsers including IE but not firefox 60.0.1.

I've tried safe mode and disabling acceleration with no luck. I've also tried simplifying the website to no avail as well. It's displaying fine in every other browser, but not here.

The About Us page also displays fine everywhere including firefox. There's something about the homepage that's not working. I've noticed that if I try to select all, it's treating text as an image or at least it doesn't let me select it. If I click and drag, the entire element moves.

Thank you in advance!

With Win 10 1803 Home Edge works, Chorme and Firefox shut system down New Dell Inspiron XPS 7573, Dell has remotely run long Hardware Diagnostics, no trouble found. I can search (Bing or Google) fill forms, type input with no trouble. In Chrome or Firefox if I start typing a query or entering a text string, after about 6 characters a fly-out above Notifications Says "Ambient Light Sensor …, and if one or two more characters are typed within a few seconds, the Dell Support Assist App opens, then the screen goes black, and in 15 seconds or so the system shuts down. Pressing Power Button restarts the PC, from Dell logo to login screen, and system comes up exactly where it was when I typed the final character that triggered the shutdown. If I space out typing, leaving a second or two between key strokes, I can avoid the shutdown.

Has anyone else seen this? I am quite sure the system is not overheating, does this with external power connected. Jack

Lately I often get message that I am unable to reach Mozilla's servers. I live in Russia and my IP is Russian too. I had to reinstall Firefox recently and my sync was incomplete (no logins, no history, no bookmarks) even though I had that checked in before. Could it be external problem because of recent Telegram blockings in Russia? Or is it only me?

A Firefox Quantum theme I applied has become stuck as the default. I have removed all other installed themes (the broken theme wasn't listed to uninstall). Any window I open applies the theme again, as well as restarting the browser. It seems to have bugged my Firefox Sync as well, as it applies on all of my devices.

Here are some screenshots of the issue, because the forum image uploader didn't appear to work for me.
