I was messing around with Privacy & Security settings. Under Cookies & Site Data, I checked Delete Cookies & Site Data when Firefox closes. I've decided I don't like it and want to uncheck it. But now it's greyed out and I can't find any way to change it back. It says I'm in permanent private browsing mode. There MUST be a way to change this back to how it was! What is it???

You cannot remove them by using the 'forget about this site' feature and if you change the browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to 'False' you don't get the suggestions. Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

I ran an SSL Labs test and it confirms that all tested versions of Firefox fail. I would like to know if anyone can spot something that might allow me to connect by temporarily relaxing the security checks in Firefox for this site.

Firefox Monitor has a limit on the number of monitored email addresses (15). However, I use the "+" symbol to register on sites - just to determine which site caused the leak. That is, email@mail.com and email+forum@mail.com are the same email address. I have hundreds of such modified addresses. However, the Firefox Monitor allows you to track only 15 of them.

Is it possible to remove the limit on the number of addresses served, or make the FM perceive email@mail.com and email+forum@mail.com (etc.) as one address?

why do firefox group their officially-recommended-addons into different categories for what they do on their Recommended-Addons listing?

Hi, I notice that mozilla/firefox don't seem to show types of addons into groups, especially their officially-recommended-addons https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/search/?recommended=true&type=extension - into different categories, as to what each add-on does, i.e. which productivity activities they might fall under for what they do. what good is 4 or more pages of add-ons in a list? I would want them in groups that fall under categories as a Type/dropdown. For example add that is great for taking notes, another for tracking protection, another for music, etc, etc. The listing page is simply a four page list with no divisions.

Could there be an additional Filter on the left side of the page that drops down showing all the different types of OFFICIALLY RECOMMENDED-addons depending on their function/purpose, please. not just by their names? I hope I can get my point across well enough, being a visual type, I might be unable to place it into the correct framework in a written way. My apologies in that case. Thank you and best regards!

Firefox 75.03b

Has anybody noticed some odd behavior with Firefox lately?

I have numerous pages I have frequented in the past that now either don't load at all, or are very slow/stubborn to load, or once they do load, don't work correctly. Most of these page are fine in Chrome.

I also have pages that were the current page before Firefox was relunched, that don't load at all, but they have addresses in the navigation bar. If I relaunch the browser again, sometimes the page comes back. However, If I try to refresh the page before relaunching the browser, the address disappears, the page cannot be recovered, and is not listed in history.

Also, I have random addons that have been reset to default at different times. I thought it was my imagination at first. That I must have forgotten to customize them, but it keeps happening, so far to at least 6 different addons. The time period is hard to gauge because I don't notice until I see things no working right.

Hello,

Does Firefox support Office 365 online? I opened a Word document on Dropbox website and I got a message that office is not supported in this web browser. My computer has Windows 10 OS and I used Mozilla Firefox Developer as well as Mozilla Firefox. A colleague of mine has the same issue while using macOS Mojave 10.14.6 and Mozilla Firefox.

BTW I have Dark Reader plug-in enabled in my browser, that's why the picture is in reversed colours. It doesn't affect the problem described.

Thanks.

So I have been Firefox Developer Edition on three different devices for the past year and just a few days ago on one of my devices, Firefox would not keep my theme settings, extensions, or accept my master password, so I closed Firefox. But that didn't help and since i needed to reboot my system anyway, I did a reboot and when I logged back on and tried to open Firefox it gave me an XUL Runner error saying that 75.0 is not compatible with min version >=74.0. So I uninstalled FDE and then re-downloaded it, reinstalled 75.0 since I do believe that the update to 75.0 had hung up on this particular device a week before. So then a day later my other two devices started having issues, so I tried to sign into another Firefox account, that didn't work so I did a reinstall and it seemed fine for a minute until I realized all my passwords/logins/history were gone, so I tried to sync again and then it gave me the message to set my master password, so I tried and kept getting the 'Cannot change master password' error. I have reinstalled twice and create a new Firefox account, tried to sign into an older one. I know someone will say just use the regular Firefox, but I use the FDE because my other Firefox browser is set with a work account that I keep to backup user data at work and I cannot use for my personal device. Any ideas?

Firefox is my favourite browser, but it has some problems. Although the team managed to fix memory leak issues with BigInt in js, but the performance is 3x slower than NodeJS compared to the latest spidermonkey (75.0b6).

To test out, I have created a simple pi calculator (open source), the website is: http://picalc.rf.gd/

The source code can be found on github, or just by clicking the "View Page Source". It seems impossible to get past 4,000 digits of Pi in firefox but in chromium I can calculate about 10,000 digits in the time firefox does 4,000 digits.

Previously, in the earlier versions (73 I guess), the memory went all the way up to 4 gigabytes while trying to calculate 5,000 digits, it's now (my current firefox version is 75.0b4, developer edition).

For the benchmarks, I have also tried NodeJS and Firefox's Spidermonkey.
