So, I accidentally clicked a link that takes me to a site I have never logged into. Firefox prompts me with 3 userids. One is more or less a throwaway, but two are for sites I want to be secure.

I have disabled the form history in options. I have selected each item and tried either delete or shift-delete. None of these options work.

The site continues to present me with 3 userid options.

I hope this is not a major security threat since I am the only user on this computer and the site is one I have never visited, but it worries me nonetheless that I cannot remove the Firefox suggestions.

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

Lately, every time I download a photoshop file, it now opens Photoshop and opens the file. How do I disable that from happening? I just want the file. I don't need to see it open. This has just been happening recently and I don't always need to open the files right away. It just slows my progress down and it's annoying! Thank you in advance!

When I visit sites and try to save JPGs to my system, often times the saved image is not readable on my system by any other apps except Firefox. I tried renaming them to png to see if that would change things, but no. The latest batch of images I saved that exhibit this behavior is from aliexpress.com Some sites (unrelated?) only offer webp images to be saved so I usually have to use a different browser to force the images to jpg instead. The images on aliexpress are still identifying as jpg so I don't think the webp issue as rearing here.

Whenever I open Firefox it opens a new tab for a brief moment then closes it and opens my previous tabs from my last session. I have this setting unchecked in the settings. I think that it is crashing and trying to restore my pages because of that, but there are no crash reports when I visit about:crash. I am running the latest version of Firefox and windows 10.

Recently, I had to change my username at my bank's website because somebody was trying a brute force attack on my password. Now, the site still shows my old username, although I've gone to my Saved Logons in Preference and removed all logons for that site except for the correct one. I have to delete the old username from the typing box every time I log in there, after which I can select the correct (and only) saved username/password.

Hello, I recently upgraded Firefox to the latest 82.0 (64-bits) version. I am quite sure that with that version a new problem appeared by which the Firefox windows have no border except the window title bar, and cannot be grabbed for resizing. I believe it has to do with Firefox because other windows doe not have this problem, and the firefox window has the menu "File|Edit|etc." inside the window title bar. The versions are: - Firefox see above - Compiz version : 1:0.9.12.3 - Ubuntu 16.04LTS - gtk2-engines-murrine : 0.98.2-0

Incidentally, when starting firefox on the cli, I receive the error messages copied below. Thanks for the great work, firefox must continue and grow. Regards, xgiannak

Hi- I am trying to switch from Google to Duckduckgo as my default firefox serach engine. I successfully downloaded the add on and it is now enabled on firefox in the add on section. It installed fine. That said, when I click on my magnifying glass in the search bar, it shows only the prior search engines, Norton Safe search, Discover Now, and Google. There is no Duckduckgo option to select and save as the default. What is wrong?

I use Firefox 82.0.2 (64-Bit) on Windows 10 and Foxit Reader 10.0.1.35811 for reading PDF files. In the FF settings I set the handling of PDF documents to "Open with Foxit Reader 10.0". Once I have done that and click on a PDF file I will be asked what to do with the PDF and I confirm again to open it with Foxit.

That usually works for the moment but FF will always forget this setting again. I have configured FF to use Foxit at least five times over the last days days. But the next day FF will just download the PDF file again and do nothing with it (not even ask me what to do with it).

Any help is much appreciated.

No matter what I tried, I can not delete my browser history, nor can I delete single websites from my history. The history list works fine, all visited sites are visible and browser history is updated, but I can not delete any of the entries or the whole list. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, but the problem is still the same. I have read and write permissions on the .mozille folder, so this can not be the problem.

Firefox - Add Colored tabs

I had Firefox version 81 and after installing version 82 in a new install on a new hard drive, I cannot change the color of my tabs anymore. I should see white tabs for the current tab but no longer when I added my userChrome.css file. I see instead a thin blue color strip along the top of the tab and the rest is grey. This shows up without any userChrome.css file.

In Firefox address field type: about:support It shows my Profile. vwy0y5ix.default-release I also have under the Profile folder this: jcueuz5y.default

I put the userChrome.css file here in my Chrome folder: C:\Users\David\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\vwy0y5ix.default-release

What it contains: /* USE THIS ONE. It works in version 65 https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/2.3.4

Firefox version - 82.0.03 64bits

I applied the -no-deelevate fix when I last upgraded and that worked ok Yesterday I ran Windows update - always a bad idea I know - and fixed the problems that caused, but now Firefox will no longer allow picture drag and drop. This IS a firefox issue because Chrome still works ok without any elevation command.

I have also done this: browser.launcherProcess - turn off, then turn back on

Any ideas please ?

Firefox just shuts down and when you reopen it the result is as others have reported - it lists the tabs that were open and you have to wait for the pages to rewrite. Some revert back to a log in screen but most go back to the screen when Firefox shuts down. There are no issues that are evident and nothing comes up in the alerts on my AV, etc. programs. It is really annoying when you have just logged into a mail program e. g. hotmail; aim; and it is in the private browser screen. This one does not reopen and you have to start from the beginning again. It has only been happening over the last week or so and can happen 2 or 3 times in a day, depending on how long the computer is being used - extended day or just a short few hours. There are no crash reports or error messages from Firefox. It just totally shuts down.

I have used sync for long on several devices and different operating systems (Win 7, Win 10, IOS) in parallel. Most interesting and useful is for me synchronisation of the toolbars with Bookmarks. It worked fine up to today. Today I opened Firefox and found my bookmarks as they were about two years ago. Oops... so I tried to synchronize but failed. No changes were applied to my bookmarks. I assume, my bookmarks are also being stored on several other devices I used for Firefox. However the newest sinchronization on the mozilla server does not contain the accurate valuable data. How can I manage to save sync data from a destinct device to the sync server and determine that as the current data set to be valid for synchronization with all my other devices? In other words: set the direction for synchronization. I did not find this option on my current (82.0.3 (64-Bit)) installation. Could anybody help me? Thanks Juergen

When I add a bookmark Firefox puts it in either "Other Bookmarks" or "Bookmarks Menu". Having to hunt in two places for new bookmarks is infuriating. How do I get the programmers to add an option in about:config to remove or disable "Other Bookmarks" so that new bookmarks are just added to "Bookmarks Menu" like they should in a normal world?

I am now seeing the new Firefox print screen when I try to print something from a webpage, but there is something critical missing from that screen. What happened to the "Simplify Page" option?? That, to me, was an incredibly valuable option within Firefox, given that I have to do a lot of printing from websites. Is that option now hidden somewhere in the new print screen, or has it been removed? For me, given what I do, that option is something of a deal-breaker. If Firefox has removed it, I may have to begin using a different browser.

I was using Firefox and Owl (the addon).

I just upgraded to Fedora 36. I treid installing Owl and an alternative called "Dark Reader" and both cause a message stating they are corrupted.

I enabled dark mode in the browser. Google immediately changed to a dark background which I can more easily see. This site ignores the setting and is forcing me to work with very limited ivsion

I can barely make out the UI. I found what might be a solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356233 but after hours trying to read it I gave up and am wirting here.

It is very frustrating that other sites respond to firefox settings and your support site does not.
