The Dashlane website indicates that Dashlane Password Manager is compatible with Firefox Browser but I am unable to find it in the extension list. Without Dashlane Firefox is useless to me since I have used it for years in Chrome and do not wish to attempt to import that information into another extension. Anyone know why it is missing?

Hi, I use the dark reader add on which saves my eyes from the burning white pages of the internet. Unfortunately, firefox flashes white before loading new pages. How can this be stopped?

To reproduce, enable the dark reader add on. Go to duckduckgo in a new tab, do a search for anything and you'll see the screen flash white before loading results.

I was using this solution which was working perfectly, but it doesn't work anymore (after a recent refresh of firefox):

userChrome.css


@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul) {

  #main-window,
  browser[type="content-primary"],
  browser[type="content"],
  tabbrowser#content,
  #content,
  browser[type="content"] > html
  {
     background: #323234 !important;
  }

}


userContent.css


@charset "utf-8"; /* CSS Document */

@-moz-document url("about:newtab") { body { background-color: #011326 !important;} }

@-moz-document url(chrome://browser/content/browser.xul) { browser[type="content-primary"] {background: #011326 !important} }


Any ideas?

Almost every time I open FF I have to sign in and sync, and start my browsing from scratch. My previous session does not open: I have tried several times to set my preferences to restore previous session. Sometimes the session is there but after opening and closing the browser a few times the session is lost.

I am having a problem where suddenly Firefox won't remember that I told it to run flash on a website. There was previously the option to remember that decision and now that's gone today for no reason. Removing that option is why I quit using Chrome when the great corporate beast decided for me that I shouldn't be able to conveniently use flash any more because they didn't like it. Is this the same thing happening here or is this a bug?

I had this problem with sites like facebook, twitter and news sites that have lots of graphics/videos. The recommended fixes didnt. Finally I went to the NVIDIA control panel, MANAGE 3D SETTINGS, and there is a list of apps, I noticed the program Mozilla Firefox was set to use Integrated Graphics. I changed the drop down to choose High Performance Nvidia Processor.

That's it. After that FF doesnt show the error any more. I dont know why or how it had been set to integrated graphics, and I expect that Mozilla was trying to use the Nvidia processor and was being blocked as a result. I havent seen this as a solution anywhere either so I think it is important to get the word out.

All downloads fail instantly even after uninstalling, deleting, and purging data on my computer. I've gone through safe mode, disabeling any and all programs related to antivirus and connection (PIA and Malwarebytes) and not a single file will even start to dowload. They fail and end up as corrupted clutter in my Download folder.

PS: The only way I was able to reinstall was via Chrome. Its only a problem on Firefox.

I have been trying for weeks to solve this problem and figure out how it happened but I cannot download any type of file on Google Drive on Firefox and it's been bothering me. I have cleared my cookies, cache, history, saved logins, restarted on private browsing, changed numerous settings and deleted and reinstall Firefox and Abode Flash. Nothing has worked. I even deleted McAfee protection in case it was a firewall problem but that didn't work either.

I'm only having this problem on my HP laptop and on this browser. Downloading google drive files works on my Dell Laptop through any browser.

If anyone has any suggestions as to why this is happening and how to solve it, I would be very grateful. I provided a screenshot of the error every time I try to download a file.

I use Firefox on the following devices:

- work pc Widnows 10 (primary device) - iPhone iOS 13 - work laptop Windows 10 - home macbook

bookmarks and other things are set to sync across all devices. however, most times, when i open a device other than my primary pc bookmarks get sync in a very wrong an annoying way: basically they are multiplied several times and spread all over out of their folders n random order. many are duplicated, but is not just the full set of them duplicated, is more a random thing, some will be tri or quadruplicated, including the folders duplicated folders will not have all the same bookmarks inside but a random selection of them. this happens most times i open my iPhone or laptops and each them will have to restore them from my primary pc.

I have once, weeks ago, tired to create a backup file, and then delete all bookmarks from all devices i have then waited a couple of days so to make sure they would all sync with no bookmarks, then i restored the original backup set of bookmarks it worked OK for few days and then started again as before. it is very annoying and if anyone has a suggestion would be much appreciated

thank you

regards Maurizio

I work with HTML website themes daily. I use the firefox browser for all of my design work and I have recently noticed that firefox does not show web icons such as font awesome or any other web icons. The web icons are properly coded into the theme and they show up fine in all other browsers (chrome, edge, explorer, safari).

I did some research on it and I did find this: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS but I don't know if that has anything at all to do with it or not.

If the problem is due to Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) then how would I fix that issue as the fonts are being served directly from the theme files?

Thank you
