IDM Extension Failure

Several days ago (approximately 12-3-20) my Internet Download Manager add-on stopped working. Removing it and reinstalling it by using a link provided by IDM does not work. It will work only if I open the webpage where I intend to download (e.g.--YouTube) BEFORE I reinstall the add-on and only for as long as that page remains open. Closing the page and then reopening it somehow deactivates IDM, as it will no longer link to the video I want to download. Have tried everything i can think of to solve this, including deactivating all other add-ons and by uninstalling and reinstalling the IDM program itself. I also unchecked the "block popup windows" management tool within Firefox itself. Anyone have any ideas what is happening? Initially, I also received the error message added below, but as far as i can tell, none of my other programs are set to block IDM. The error message no longer appears.

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

Switching Between Seperate Firefox Accounts

My brother and I have separate Firefox accounts. He stays with me a lot for weeks or even months at a time. He's not an avid smart phone user. He prefers a desktop PC just as I do. The big problem is we can't switch accounts. All his passwords and web sites are linked to his account, the same as mine is to mine. If I log out of my Firefox and he attempts to log into his, we get a warning that all synced items will be merged. We end up not switching. This is very frustrating for him since he doesn't remember his sign-in's. He relies on his Firefox account for that. Is there any way around this? We can do it with Google and his AOL accounts. Anybody have any ideas?

I am having trouble logging into my bank's website from Firefox. It's worked fine for several years and I have no clue what triggered it all of a sudden. Furthermore, I can log in just fine from various other browsers.

I have Google around on the issue for awhile now, and have troubleshooted several different things based on what I've Googled, such as clearing all site cookies, data, cache, etc. Also I had a pop-up blocker add-on but I removed it and that didn't do anything. Lastly, I tried completely uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it without ANY add-ons, but it still doesn't work.

Details on what happens: I go to the log in page, and I put in my user and password and click to log in, and it does nothing. It just basically refreshes the page, so the page comes back up with blank user and password fields.

Any help/ideas on the matter would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Updated to Firefox 83 and now my browsing history in 'History' and in 'Show All History' will not delete despite my preference settings being correct and having tried deletion in all possible ways. Something is wrong because after I have clicked 'Clear Recent History' or closed Firefox with 'Delete on closing' selected, the preference page shows a change in the kb being used to store history, yet the browsing history has not been cleared. Does anyone know how to fix this problem or let Firefox know?

Hi.

My former laptop got damaged and I couldn't remember my Firefox password to restore my saved passwords.

So, when I reset password, all the old passwords in the former laptop didn't sync or rather were lost.

Now I have the Hard Disk of my former laptop and when I connected it to my new laptop and searched for Firefox "password" files I found passwords.json in a particular location: E:\***\****\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\4ee3ocax.default\weave\changes.

I am looking for a way I can import this password file and access them in my Firefox account in my new laptop.

Thanks

Hi,

I have been designing a Hikvision CCTV system and bumped into a problem. Mac users cannot use a browser to access all the various controls and settings as Hikvision rely upon ActiveX, which is old and a security risk. I am informed that this problem exists in the whole CCTV industry! I am advised that Hikvision will eventually dump ActiveX in favour of HTML5, but this seems to require a new operating system!

I think it's incredible that a whole industry should build itself upon one piece of legacy. Surely browsers would be the way to go. That way online acccess to a CCTV system would be OS independent. Does onyone have some thoughts on this?

Why not implement an HTML5 plugin?

I'm no expert, but have been around computer tech since the early 1980s.

Comments/observations much appreciated.

Regards Michael
