I can log into this website on Chrome, but not on Firefox. Chrome doesn't work with my high contrast theme since the last Windows update, so I really need to use Firefox, but I also would like to be able to use this website too. This website doesn't offer a regular login option, you have to use either Facebook or a cell phone. I don't have a cell phone that gets text messages, so I can't do that, so I need to be able to log in with Facebook. I can't find anywhere in my setting where I have it disabled. I even have the site whitelisted (in Trusted Sites) in Ublock Origins to no avail. I may have, at one point, a long time ago, once dismissed a Facebook log in prompt and told it to never ask me again. How would I go about telling it to please ask me again?

Hi, I just discovered a problem setting secondary email when both primary and secondary is on the same domain, gmail.com.

Following the instructions:

Set up secondary email

The error that come up says that the secondary email must be different than my account email, but it is, the only common thing is the domain.

So this is a bug, please fix.

I am trying to update the primary email associated with my Firefox account. My primary email is listed as <primary@domain.name>, for example. My secondary email is not assigned. When I try to add <preferred.email@domain.name> to my secondary email, I get the message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email"

I do not see this "account email" listed anywhere. Where do I find it, and how can I change it?

Many thanks, bd89

Bookmark toolbar always worked and I could turn it off or on but always left on. But now Bookmark Toolbar doesn't show and when I click on it in Toolbar options the check mark won't appear but Menu Bar still turns Off and On when I click on it. Restarted computer before this happened because trouble with mouse pad and got notice about Firefox 89 update but closed it because prefer Firefox 88 that has smaller Bookmark and Menu Toolbars

Hi!

  1. FF removed the RSS button to discover feeds. Which sucks.
  2. But it sucks even more that the feature to subscribe to feeds via external services was also removed.
  3. I also can't view feeds, even if I find one manually.

New, I saw solutions to the first one, but there of little to no use on their own. Downloading text files with feed items in xml format is pretty useless. I want to be able to view a feed and subscribe to it.

Get me back my bookmarks. I put off updating Firefox because updates are always risky. One reason: your idea of an improvement isn't always mine. For instance: I finally allowed the most recent update and I couldn't access my bookmarks from the Library. My solution: the upgrade caused a problem, undo the "upgrade". Wrong, now my bookmarks are gone entirely. TH

Hi, I'd like to batch delete ~100 old logins from Firefox.

Previous forum posts suggested using these URLs to access password management: chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xul and chrome://passwordmgr/content/passwordManager.xhtml but neither work on FF88.0b2 64bit on macOS 10.14.6

Thanks

Has anyone noticed that many websites that use google tracking and analytics seem to work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome? I know most sites have some form on google tracking on them but some in particular work a lot slower on firefox than on chrome. In particular udemy.com, as well as my.onexamination.com I feel this is an issue due to firefox privacy containers, as the tracking on these websites is trying to get information which firefox is denying it, causing a delay in resolution. I prefer firefox but I am starting to use chrome for such websites. Any way I can speed up things on firefox and avoid chrome altogether?

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.
