I am trying to turn off my cache settings.

The instructiuons given tell us to set 'network.http.use-cache in about:config.

I have tried that, and that Preference name no longer exists.

How is this achieved?

I need this for Automation Testing. Currently, cached data casuses tests to fail.

when i click Advanced, the following message shows : "www.google.com uses an invalid security certificate. The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT" (image attached : image1)

Hello,

I know there's a couple of 'lost bookmarks-toolbar' topics here but none have a working solution for me. I was browsing a site which had a bad habbit of opening new browserwindows. Alas, I closed my main Firefox window with lots of tabs open and forgot about one of the newly opened windows with none of my tabs. Closed that one, lost all tabs for that session.

Wasn't too worried but today I realize that my bookmarks toolbar is missing also. Guess something went wrong closing but can't figure out how to get it back. Tried various solutions presented here : safe mode, renaming places.sqlite, checking I actually got 'display bookmarks-toolbar' marked, etc... nothing worked so far.

If I start Firefox after a complete exit it actually show the bookmarks toolbar for just a second and then it's gone. If I check my Bookmarks and do a 'Show All' I can find all the bookmarks in there, even a seperate section for the Bookmarks Toolbar. If I check the latest backup of my Bookmarks it is a nearly empy file. Also had to turn Sync of 'cause I would get an empty Bookmarks Toolbar after a sync.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Tnx!

Only way to add bookmarks is to drag a link to the toolbar. Aside from that, I can't add them. I also can't delete them by any means whatsoever. I've already tried the solutions listed here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/changes-toolbars-and-window-sizes-are-not-saved they didn't work. I also don't have sync enabled so that wasn't the culprit either. None of my plugins are bookmark related. I'm using the latest version of Firefox Quantum. This is really infuriating, if it keeps up I'm going to have to go back to Google Chrome.

Since upgrading to package firefox 61.0.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1, the pop-up menus are all invisible.

I can click the "hamburger" menu and nothing visibly happens. But then I can click in the area below it and the invisible menu item is activated. The same behavior happens for things like the Pocket button.

I've tried safe mode and refreshing Firefox. The behavior stays the same in both cases. I'm lost as to what to do other than roll back to an older version.

An installed application on a preinstalled Ubuntu 16.04 (Dell laptop) doesn't exist in Firefox's Applications list

I'm using a conference application called Zoom. There are URLs that can be clicked to open the application and let jump in right away to the meeting that ID existed in the URL. For example: https://zoom.us/j/1234567890

But none of the URLs I tried actually opens the application.

Or for instance when I try to login to my account, the app opens Firefox which after logging in through the web, redirects me to zoommtg://zoom.us/google?code=XXX and Firefox shows a message saying "The address wasn’t understood".

I tried the following boolean key on the about:config page for Firefox: network.protocol-handler.expose.zoommtg=false

And I tried assigning true instead of false, but this didn't do the trick.

My Firefox has the following key/value network.protocol-handler.expose-all;true

I understand that this configuration makes me not need to set the previous one as it overrides it.

From within my ~/.local/share/applications $ cat Zoom.desktop [Desktop Entry] Name=Zoom Comment=Zoom Video Conference Exec=/usr/bin/zoom %U Icon=Zoom.png Terminal=false Type=Application Encoding=UTF-8 Categories=Network;Application; StartupWMClass=zoom MimeType=x-scheme-handler/zoommtg;application/x-zoom; X-KDE-Protocols=zoommtg Name[en_US]=Zoom $ cat mimeapps.list

[Default Applications] text/html=firefox_firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/http=firefox_firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/https=firefox_firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/about=firefox_firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/unknown=firefox_firefox.desktop x-scheme-handler/zoommtg=Zoom.desktop application/x-zoom=Zoom.desktop

How can I configure Firefox to redirect the Zoom URLs to the application, so I can login to my account and use meeting links to join the meetings instantly ?

I uploaded a screenshot to show that Zoom doesn't show in Firefox's Applications list, but I'm not sure it isn't showing up !

After restarting my computer, I got a new FF web page and ALL my bookmarks as well as history have been deleted.

How do I get them ALL back?

I have tried every solution on the Mozilla Help section - I cant do a Restore I have a very old version of backups - 2016

The online help system is going around and around in circles not giving any solutions. 4 hours of trying to sort this out is ridculous.

I really do not want to have to move to Chrome, I far prefer Mozilla, but I can not afford to loose more time sorting this problem out. If not resolved here, I will reluctantly have to restart all my bookmarks in Chrome.

I need all my bookmarks - some are work related.

Please Help

What is complete list of IPs, subnets and/or URIs Firefox Sync needs access to to work correctly?

I need this because I live in Russia and our Internet regulator RosKomNadzor blocked some of these (at least 18.236.108.89) so Firefox Sync is not really working most of the time and I want to petition them to whitelist Firefox service networks.

Also I am pretty sure information about Firefox service addresses will be useful for other users such as network admins (enterprise proxy configuration, firewall settings, etc).

When I am entering text into a text box (for example a textarea html tag) with Firefox Developer Edition 61.0b2 (64-bit), and many previous versions, every single word is underlined as red. When I right click and select the language, US English is the only option. To begin to debug this I started firefox in safe mode from the command line. The first time I place my cursor in a text box, the following appears in my terminal:

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.dic: cannot open

error: file:///usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/en_US.aff: cannot open


This seems like something one might expect to see considering the the spell checking problem. However, if I run: "ls -l /usr/lib/firefox-developer-edition/dictionaries/" on my system I get the following:

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3090 May 9 23:34 en_US.aff

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 545233 May 9 23:34 en_US.dic


So the dictionary files are definitely there. Furthermore I have opened them to make sure they are populated with the words from the English language.

To remedy the issue I have tried "resetting" firefox so that I have a new profile, but this did nothing. Interestingly enough, when I run the non-developer edition of firefox, the spell checking works as expected.

How can I go about fixing this issue?

I've got the same problem as Firefoxfan1 since upgrading to the v60 as Firefoxfan1. When i want to open FF it won't open 2 times out of 3 and when it never opens or else FF crashes or i have to end the tasks in Task Manager. Once FF opens without hanging i click on a URL shortcut, the tab hangs. It won’t open. I try opening one or more new tabs, they all hang, except 1 out of about 5 which opens correctly. Sometimes opening new tabs hangs indifinetly until FF crashes. My FF/crash reports/pending folder holds a great amount of crashes, every crash produces 3 dumps. 0861bfdb-4ff5-417f-aa4a-1ba7ac97989c.extra 0861bfdb-4ff5-417f-aa4a-1ba7ac97989c.dmp 0861bfdb-4ff5-417f-aa4a-1ba7ac97989c-browser.dmp Unlike Firefoxfan1 i never experienced this type of problem, i’ve been using FF since the end of Netscape back in the 90’s. I’ve already sent these dumps to FF as recommended. I uninstalled FF and reinstalled but the problem persists. I also reinitialised FF to no prevail. Any hints on what the problem is ?

Since I've updated to 61, I can't get the history to be active. (Bookmarks are fine). I made sure the settings were correct, I ran Refresh firefox; I ran Verify integrity and got this:

Task: checkIntegrity

- Unable to check database integrity > Task: invalidateCaches - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: checkCoherence - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: expire - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: vacuum - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: stats - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task. > Task: _refreshUI - The task queue was cleared by an error in another task.

I've looked up numerous help sites, and they all refer to a place.sqlite file that I don't seem to have, and a profile folder that also does not exits (I'm assuming this is a 61 thing, in my older versions I had those files and folders.

Help! I need my history!
