Each time I start Firefox I have to open the menu, click Options, click Privacy and Security, and check the box "Ask to Save Login and Passwords for Websites". How can I save this Option/preference so that I don't have to do this each time I open Firefox?

I downloaded Firefox 77.0.1 today and no longer have the down-arrow in the URL bar. Yesterday I searched and found how to get it back. Now with 77.0.1 I no longer have it and the solution I found yesterday does not fix it either. Would like to get the down-arrow back and for Mozilla to stop taking that feature away.

Hi all,

There is a recurring error annoying me, every two days (more or less), I get the message below, then it is needed to create new profile and configure it again. Firefox version: 77.0.1 (64-bits) SO: Windows 10

English You have released an older version of Firefox Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved in an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox.

'Português (my installation) Você lançou uma versão mais antiga do Firefox Usar uma versão mais antiga do Firefox pode corromper favoritos e o histórico de navegação já salvos em um perfil existente do Firefox. Para proteger suas informações, crie um novo perfil para esta instalação do Firefox.'

How can I fix it? I already have reinstalled it several times.

Thanks and regards, Marcos

I find that I dislike many of the standard installation configurations. I'm a tech and install Firefox to get users away from those "other" browsers. But there's too much I don't like and it takes me too long to reconfigure each new installation.

So... I'd love to have a configuration script or something that could be run with the Firefox installer, full one if necessary, that would do all the tweaks I do after a new installation.

Examples. Remove all the extra stuff in the area to the right of the address bar. Leave and change download arrow to NOT hide when not currently used. (Who thought of that should be fired). Put old bookmarks icon back in place of other one. Remove the blank spaces on each side of the address bar.

And configure non-default options such as ask where to download instead of default to downloads, load previous tabs on startup, set default home page, disable password remembering, etc.

And, ideally allow installation of add-ons I always utilize like Bitwarden password manager (much preferred to Firefox's storing them), and Adblock Plus.

Any chance of any of this becoming available? Really don't want to use one of the screen recording/macro programs to do it.

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm having some problems with cookies exceptions. When I add cookies exceptions from Settings > Privacy & Security > Exceptions they do not work. When I add exceptions from that page - Page info > Permissions they work. I think there is something wrong with the Exceptions in the settings area or some hidden setting I don't see...

By default I am using private mode and blocking all cookies.

On attached image you can see first entry I added in the settings page and second from permissions menu in page info.

Would appreciate your help.

Thank you.

When I started Firefox today, neither Twitter or Reddit would load. Totally white pages without even an error message. I tried various solutions, including: 1. Disabling UBlock Origin 2. Staring Firefox in Safe Mode 3. Deleting all cookies/site data/password saved for these sites, restarting, and logging in.

The third solution worked. However now when I run Firefox in normal mode none of my extensions (RES, UBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, etc) work. They appear to be working (their icons in the taskbar, they are 'enabled' in settings) but they aren't doing anything and when I click on their icons they don't have any data/info on the current site.

I tried running the storage test here (https://firefox-storage-test.glitch.me/) and it returned errors seen in the attachment.

Also I'm running Firefox version 77.0.1 and Windows 7 despite this troubleshooting page and others automatically detecting a different versions (says 68.0 and Windows 10 here)

Hi, Until recently the right click, 'save image as' method of saving a site image has worked flawlessly, now it goes into a death spiral & crashes Firefox. See image attached.

Am running Win10, 64 bit. Win is up to date. Firefox is 77.0.1 (64 bit)

Have run the diagnostics/help files suggested in the help files to no effect. Have similarly run Brave which is also doing the same thing whereas Edge doesn't seem to be affected.

Have deleted & re-installed both Firefox & Brave without change.

What am I not doing right?

Thanks

Ever since Firefox automatically updated to version 77, I see a blank page on startup instead of it loading up my homepage. I have to hit the homepage button to load it up now. I had not changed any preferences, so it wasn't caused by anything I did.

FYI, I noticed that if I open a second Firefox window, it does load the homepage up automatically.

Based on past questions about similar issue, I checked to make sure about:config browser.startup.page was set to 1, and it was.

This is driving me nuts.

My desired behavior is that, when I middle-mouse-click on a hyperlink, Firefox launches a new window (not a tab) with that URL.

This is how it was working before a power interruption forced my computer to restart tonight, and my desired behavior has gone away.

The middle mouse button works for other functions; and, middle-clicking on bookmarks in my bookmark bar does launch a new window with that bookmark as expected. However, middleclicking a hyperlink does nothing.

I have browser.tabs.opentabfor.middleclick = false and in the options menu, "open links in tabs instead of new windows" is unchecked. Additionally I have set browser.link.open_newwindow = 2.

Can anyone help me here? This is driving me slightly batty.

Summary: Opening a file from the Network Developer Tools tab will always become the foreground tab.

Details:

  • Firefox version: 77.0.1 (64-bit)
  • OS Version: 10.15.4 (19E287)

I'm using the Developer Tools Network tab, and would like to quickly view the sources of multiple files. When you right click a file's URL you can Open In New Tab, but it will not open as a background tab. No combination of keys will do it, it should just be command+click.

Reproduction:

  1. Visit any website
  2. Press ⌘⌥E to open Network tab
  3. Reload page
  4. Right click anything in the File column
  5. File opens in new active tab no matter what
