I just want to say that this is ridiculous. Importing bookmarks from HTML (which was exported from the same Firefox browser but on a different system) does not work at all. I also tested this with HTML exported bookmarks from other browsers as well. I select the file, click import and nothing happens, nothing at all. I have even updated to the latest version of Firefox and guess what? It still does not work. How? Please explain how your software can be this bad. And please don't ask me if I clicked the right button, giving me instructions on how to do the thing that I already did 100 times.

Hello community, would anyone kindly help me with this issue I'm facing? How do I export Logins and Passwords on Firefox running 78.10.1esr (64-bit) on a Mac. The export funtion is not available here and I know the this option is only available on 79 and after, but I'm using a mid 2012 Mac Pro running 78.10.1esr. Is there any way I could still export the logins?

Thank you kindly.

Hi everyone!

Do some of y'all know why this keep happening?

For example: I'm logged in on two sites and now I close Firefox. I've turned on the settings ""Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"" and I've put the URLs, for these two websites, in the ""Manage exception"" list and turned them on ""Allow"". I've also turned on "Clear history when Firefox closes" and turned everything on inside that setting except ""Active Logins"".

I'm suspecting its because its deleting the cache because I don't use any kind of "erase all traces" add-ons. I'd rather not have cache turned off since it quickly builds up.

The only add-ons I use are: NoScript ""Ublock Origin"" ""KeePassXC"" (not even related to any kind of blocking so I don't really have to mention it, but anyway. ""HTTPS Everywhere"" ""Firefox Relay"" Thanks Firefox for this incredible add-on! ""Decentraleyes"" and ""DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials""

Hi forum The email provider for my preferred secondary email address uses greylisting. It works, very well. The confirming email from firefox is sent from a random amazon address, which gets greylisted as intended. There's a 5 minute limit for entering the confirmation code, but greylisting slows delivery of the email to around 15 minutes, waiting for the amazon sending server to try multiple times. Is there another way to update the secondary email address ?

I downloaded Scribus, an open source free page layout design application from https://www.scribus.net/

link text

I can't open this application because I get a message that says: "'Scribus.app' can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.

I searched the Mac App Store and it does not have Scribus. I can't afford to subscribe to Adobe Creative Cloud and I need to be able to create page layout designs, which Scribus can do.

How can I verify that https://www.scribus.net/ is a secure application site? How can I open the application if it is a secure link?

Thanks, Shelley

Greetings: My computer was shutdown and restarted by a colleague and I seem to have lost my browsing history and all the open tabs from my last session are not retrievable — restore previous session is not available / appears grey'd out. I am on a macbook pro running Big Sur and I do have a time machine backup of that last session — can I get back those open tabs and browser history from my time machine? Can I do it a la carte or do I need to wipe my whole computer and restore from there? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Sam

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

Hello together,

when implementing canvas graphics with 2D context, I notified that the latest FF 87.0 on windows is much slower than chrome/edge/opera on windows and also much slower as safari on mac. I drilled into detail and detected that it was caused when drawing polygons with color gradient (see attached image). Means that using canvascontext.createLinearGradient() instead of flat colors makes it slow. On the other hand using flat colors is perfectly fast.

I wondered, because I had much better experience with FF and installed an earlier version (78.9.0esr) on the same windows workstation and the problem was gone. Seams, that some change made the newer FF slower with this type of graphic..

CPU is i7 8650U 1.90 - 2.11 GHZ, OS is Windows 10 version 20H2

But the effect is the same on all windows workstations I tested. Would be happy to see, that I can use FF again with these type of graphic apps.

I have a virtual w10x64 machine which I need to play old flash content on a specific (trusted) website which is the only one allowed in mms.cfg and which does not use https. With the latest update to 78.9 FF does not open the flash content and the pages anymore. So I reverted to 78.8 but the auto-update always intercepts.

How can I disable the auto-updates for good? Is there possibly a policy for this?

I think the FF programmers need better imagination on specific scenarios before they impose so called "security features" on the users and break their processes.
