I am familiar with the profiles.ini file except for one thing for which I can find no information about. Recently the above mentioned line showed up in both the install.ini and profiles.ini files. This is what is in the files now: Profiles.ini

   [Install308046B0AF4A39CB]
   Default=Profiles/5cmttesr.default
   Locked=1
   [Profile0]
   Name=default
   IsRelative=1
   Path=Profiles/5cmttesr.default
   Default=1
   [General]
   StartWithLastProfile=1
   Version=2

Install.ini

   [308046B0AF4A39CB]
   Default=Profiles/5cmttesr.default
   Locked=1

As can be seen under the default profile listing is the locked=1 line or setting. So does this lock the profile so no changes can be made, or only lock some parts or does the 1 indicate it is unlocked or what? All the profile.ini articles and examples do not show the locked= line at all or even mention it as an optional setting.

Hello. In my bookmarks library I have a lot of folders organized in a tree with multiple branches themselves organized in hierarchic levels. Sometimes I don't find the bookmark I want to use by browsing my tree, probably because I didn't put it in the right location in the tree. I can find it by the "Search bookmarks" function but this function doesn't provide the bookmark location in the tree (and I don't see any other way to locate it). Thus I can't correct the bookmark location error in the tree.

Is there a way to locate a bookmark in library folders tree ?

I'm using Firefox 71.0 (64-bit) in Windows 10. I'm wanting to turn on Push Notifications for Twitter. I've already "allowed" the notifications in Firefox for Twitter, but when I try to turn the Push Notifications on in Twitter, I get a message that reads:

"Unsupported Browser

It looks like your browser doesn’t support push notifications."

Am I doing something wrong?

Just installed a GeoTrust EV SSL and noticed no green address bar or company name displayed. GeoTrust support says "Unfortunately, Chrome and FireFox has discontinued the EV green bar display with their latest version of browsers. The organization name is only visible by clicking the padlock." Pretty sure the Comodo EV SSL that we had before the GeoTrust EV SSL did show a green bar, but can't remember for sure.

I have searched mozilla support and completed the suggested tasked without success.  I ultimately deleted the firefox app and searched for and deleted any mozilla and firefox files.  I down loaded a new firefox app.  That did not correct the error.  Same message appears.  Help

LastPass was installed and running until Firefox automatically upgraded to ver. 71 and now it's been disabled. Even though LastPass is a "recommended" extension, when I try to re-install from Mozilla I get the message "an unexpected error occurred during installation" (see attached file). LP users report the same problem on their site but it's clearly a Firefox 71 problem (LP works fine will all my other browsers).

Today I noticed that my custom plugins are no longer working. I decided to try and re-install flash. I removed the plugins from the directory manually then started again. I downloaded the NPAPI version from adobe (pictured). I then extracted the files and copied the plugin (libflashplayer.so) to firefox's plugin path ($MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH, which for me was /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins). I then restarted firefox. However, the shockwave flash plugin is not present in the plugins tab. This is odd as it was a couple of days ago before I redid this. Sites like newgrounds worked perfectly. Back when flash was working, I noticed on some sites that used html5, it would instead try to use flash. For a whille, the openh264 was stuck on "will be installed shortly." Now when I go to those sites, it will show the thumbnail, but not play. Youtube videos still work, however. In fact, it's really the only video site that still works. Was there a dramatic change in the past couple of days or something? I didn't even update firefox myself, this happened seemingly out of nowhere. I'll post my about:support data in the hopes that it might help? https://pastebin.com/6iHkwwjz I would post here, but it said it was too long... :/ According to this article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-flash-plugin-view-videos-animations-games in theory, it should still work. However, despite installing flash and restarting firefox... no shockwave flash plugin is present in about:plugins

I recently upgraded my Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10. Now in Facebook, videos won't play. I am using the latest Firefox and Flash player. The picture for the video shows up, but when I press play, it turns to a blur and won't play. I restarted Firefox in safe mode and the videos play normally, so it is an add-on causing the issue. I have disable each add-on, but can't seem to find the culprit. Maybe iI am not fully disabling them?

This raises another question...do I still need Flash Player at all? Do browsers now have other ways to play the videos?

Thanks in advance

I love using bookmark tags and lately, I've noticed the unused tags aren't being deleted. From what I've read, they're automatically deleted if you no longer use them, right?

The tags in questions definitely aren't in use. I've done right-click -> Delete on them individually but nothing happens. I use Firefox account to keep my settings in sync across all devices and this behaviour is the same on all of them.

Any ideas?

Thank you.
