Firefox allows me to set protection so that third party cookies are allowed in normal windows, but not in private windows. I think it makes more sense to have it the other way round. Generally I don't want third party cookies: most of them are trackers or do something else undesirable. However some sites won't work if third party cookies are disabled. If I open such a site in a private window, all cookies set by the site will be thrown away when the window is closed, so third party cookies won't be seen by any other site and are relatively harmless. Currently (78.1.0esr 64-bit) I can turn off enhanced tracking protection for such sites, but I have to do it every time I open a private window, and for each site I visit in that window. I would like to be able to make that the default for private windows.

How to stop cursor from jumping to sidebar?

Everytime I open a new window in Firefox, my cursor will jump from the top bar search field to the 'synced tabs' sidebar after a couple of seconds, usually in the middle of me typing out the url of a web address or entering keywords for searching.

It is completely maddening to have to, every time, delete the rest of the letters from the sidebar, and reclick (it takes about 3x) in the main field at the top before it will deselect the letters already typed and allow me to keep typing.

How to I disable this 'feature'?

Thanks! Segue

I removed FF on one laptop due to chronic playlist problems but this one still has it. Thx to Cor-El for trying to assist me with the other machine.

All of a sudden I am inundated with "Enable DRM" nags on this machine. You can't block them. And the nags are on every page I load now. There has to be a way to get rid of that junk...

I am in Windows 7, 64-bit. All of a sudden all of my Firefox logins and passwords are missing. I read several threads about this, which told me to check the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop for the logins.json file. However, the only information in that folder is from 2018, two full years ago. Where did my logins and passwords from yesterday go?

Also, I just updated to version 80.0.1, hoping to get my passwords and logins back, but they are sill missing. The problem just occurred today, before I updated from version 79-something.

Thank you for any help you can give. This is extremely upsetting.

I'm trying to load autotrader.com. It initially loads the homepage, then quickly loads the following: We're sorry. Our site has experienced an error.

When I open the site in a private browsing window, it loads fine.

I've cleared out cookies and cache for the site. I've also cleared out cookies and cache and offline website data for all sites for the last four hours.

How can I resolve this? (And can I remove additional site data only for autotrader.com without removing data for all other sites?) Thanks for any help.

Whilst moving back to FireFox overall is a positive experience one of the things bothering me slightly is the language packs.

When trying to add the Dutch language pack it indicates that it cannot be installed/is not available for FireFox version 80. Is there any indication when it would be available and/or if there are any work arounds?

I use multiple Firefox profiles for specific purposes and want to lock certain preferences for the profiles.

I'm aware of the "mozilla.cfg" (in the installation directory, kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences), but that applies to all profiles.

Is there a way to lock preferences per Firefox profile?
