Dears,

 Due to a mysterious reason, the password manager of firefox on my home PC does not want to keep in memory my login/pwd for a given site. I mean: this works well for other sites (as well a brother site of the problematic one, as well as the problematic site with the same version of firefox but on another PC). But, never mind.

As a workaround, I would like to be able to manually add a new login/pwd in the password manager. How to do this?

Best regards Christophe

Hello,

I've saved my bookmarks by using Export bookmarks to HTML". But the "tags" and "keywords" fields are not listed on the created page.

How do i save tags and keywords?

Related question: I'm using a Mac... where are the tags and keywords stored? Is that in /Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/(profile name)/bookmarkbackups/bookmarks-(date)(hash)==.jsonlz4 ? How would i read that and be able to utilize the tags and keywords from there?

Thank you for any clues.

Since there is no longer a way to disable ctrl+b for bookmarks sidebar and ctrl+h for history sidebar, how does one completely disable the sidebar where nothing comes up no matter what is pressed? I want to completely trash the sidebar.

I'm on Mac. When I open a PDF in Firefox I get a print button and a download button. The download button does not offer a Save As option. It simply uses the name used in the browser - often this is a number or day or some other appellation that is less useful than allowing me to rename the PDF myself. Chrome offer to rename the file before saving but I hate Chrome.

Maybe I'm overlooking something?

Edited to correct some history -- so the followng transcript may be a bit out of synch -- I will state my current question below.

Two things happened at the same time -- I uninstalled Adobe Flash, and a Windows Update ran. I didn't notice the Windows update, so I blamed the wrong thing, the Flash uninstall. It was WIndows.

The Windows update caused all my bookmarks and history (and most cookies) to disappear. I'm on Firefox 68.10.0esr

I found my Profiles at C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles but I don't understand what's in there enough to fish the bookmarks out, and I don't see anything that looks like "15 backups" promised by the Mozilla help pages.

Where are my Bookmark backups?

Youtube videos playing extremely fast

Linux debian 8 / Firefox 68.9.0ESR Since Firefox crashed on me a couple months ago, all online videos play at excessive speed (at least 5x normal speed, probably faster). There is also no longer any sound, but that could be due to the speed of the playback (sound in all other programs work fine)?

I have rebooted my computer a couple times since then, and tried creating a brand new profile, but there is no change. I've been running this version of firefox for several months so that hasn't changed. I also had not applied any updates to my OS recently before this problem started happening, although I did try updating after the problem showed up... still no resolution. I assume the crash has nothing to do with this problem since a clean profile hasn't made a difference.

I'm stumped. There are tons of google results about videos playing too slow, but I've found nothing about videos playing at lightning speed. Checking youtube directly, playback speed is set to normal although setting it to 0.25 slows it down enough I can at least see what's happening. I just don't know what else to look for?

Hi,

The official browser FireFox version in our company is FIREFOX ESR 68. Today some computers (windows 10) are automatically updated to FIREFOX ESR 78.2 but not others.

This is a problem because we were going to open at FF ESR 78.3 from September 21 only. Can you tell us how to avoid this update to an intermediate version ?

Best regards, Patricia

I was wondering if their was a way to switch the find bar bar back to the old way of searching. The way it is now is annoying. When I use find it's usually the same search across multiple tabs. Now I have to open the find in each tab and if I change the find in one tab it doesn't change across the other find bars so I now have to change each individually. Thanks.

Online shopping using WaterFox (example screenshot attached) at Walmart & other websites, preview webpages are not showing images. However using Microsoft Edge web browser the preview images load just fine. (example screenshot attached) I disabled all extensions in WaterFox but it made no difference

I did explore the "knowledge base" but could not find a fix for the problem, but would welcome any help

you could send my way. Also have a problem on some web pages that use a "chat" application. Clicking on the "chat" link does not activate the chat window. However, there again, chat window opens fine in MS Edge. Thanks!
