Hello there , I am trying to modify the menu-bar dropdown items when I hover over the list that opens with my mouse ( the dropdown list of any of Help , Tools , Bookmarks , History etc...). It is barely noticeable. I can hardly see the item chosen. I could use some help using the css. I am using FF93 and my platform is win7. Thanks look4

I recently changed my browser from chrome to fire fox but all my passwords are saved on chrome. I tried to import them on firefox but nothing gets imported from chrome. There is no autofill option for passwords here. I clicked on the three dots and did everything it said on the website but still the error message keeps popping up saying " An error occurred while trying to save this password". I tried going in the Passwords option and doing it manually but then the error message comes every time. Im using Firefox on my laptop.

I remember from past rodeos that I need to know the precise name of the cookies. But now when I check which cookies are added when I login, I can only see them grouped by the main website title--nytimes.com and I see that they have added 7 cookies. But I cannot see individual cookies.

How can I see the cookies to copy their addresses for the 'exceptions' table for data management to allow the right ones to be retained; OR just tell FF to allow my 3 preferred sites to stay 'always' logged in when I reopen FF?

Unless I'm totally blind, there is no Two-step authentication option on the security panel. What is going on? I can't use sync without activating 2FA. If there is really no way to sync other than a non-existent 2FA, I'm going back to Chrome.

I searched and searched how to add FF to my authenticator so I could get the code to set up sync and/or 2FA. FINALLY, someone gave this answer: When you enable 2FA then you get a QR code that you need to scan with an Authenticator app that generates a 6-digit code that you need to enter to confirm that 2FA is working.

The answer was "scan with the AUTHENTICATOR APP!!" I was just scanning it with the phone. Duh on me.

I'm posting this to help others. Sorry it's not a question per se.

Still trying to figure out what is wrong after refresh of Firefox.

I cannot get my handful of preferred websites to remain logged in when closing and reopening Firefox.

I have FF set to clear cookies and data on closing, but this handful of sites are listed as exceptions.

After reopen FF, the relevant cookies are not sticking. This used to work better.

I redownloaded FF and no improvement.

I'm thinking conflicting settings or....?

In Chrome, the browser allows you to monitor all events fired on the window by typing "monitorEvents(window)" in the console. Firefox has no such function (that I can find). Can someone tell me how to do the same thing in the Firefox console? Otherwise, what is the JS event that gets fired when zooming text only on the browser? Normal zoom fires the resize event, but when text is zoomed it isn't as straightforward. I know that I could alternatively check the font size on the element, but that is not an event. Thanks!

I recently installed Firefox Developer Edition on a Debian system. I synced my existing profile. There is currently an "import bookmarks" tab displayed that I am unable to delete. I see other existing questions asking and answering this problem, however, I do not have the "customization" option recommended.

I remember seeing somewhere that -moz-box-ordinal-group does not keep assigned values in userChrome if the value is changed after being set the first time. This certainly seems to be the case -

With the following I had temporarily set the value to '1' but then set it back to '2' - it no longer works.

#clearDownloadsButton {
 -moz-box-ordinal-group: 2 !important;
}

Am I missing something?

Hello, I have a strange problem, so after loading the system, the processor in my computer is drastically loaded, after entering the task manager, it turns out that one firefox process uses a lot of processor (photo in the attachment) after closing this process everything returns to normal and CPU consumption even while browsing the internet does not exceed 7% but it is quite persistent because I have to close this process every time, I will just add that this problem does not occur in other browsers. and none of my friends have it either. I'm using Windows 10 with the latest updates and the latest Firefox developer edition. The problem has been around for about a year and is really bothersome. My processor up to i7 2760qm, I have 16gb of ram. I will also add that in my second laptop with core 2 duo, this also happens only with me, no one who has this problem. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi,

during maintenance of my logins in my password manager I discovered that I still have the login data for a FireFox Sync account. I can login to that account and see my settings, but I actually want to delete the account completely. The problem: The mail address associated with that account does not exist anymore (changed the company). When trying to delete the account (or when trying to add a seconday mail address), Firefox Sync prompts me to enter a verification code that was sent by mail.

I'll never receive that code, as that original mail adress does not exist anymore.

How can I delete that FS Sync account?

Thanks, Frank

Recently, firefox started opening two identical tabs on middle mouse click instead of one. This behavior is not consistent, but happens more often than not. I already checked if the mouse is not faulty and submitting two clicks instead of one, but it is not. Also trying Chrome and Edge, both work fine, and only firefox does this.

I am running FF Dev edition v93.0b9 (64-bit)

Any tips are appreciated, and while I know this has been asked before, that question came in 2014 and was supposedly fixed by an update.

I've got a new computer I am setting up from scratch, and though I have set FF to sync settings, I'm still having to customize a lot. My bookmarks toolbar is crowded again with icons and I'd like those to go away. I don't mind other icons staying around on the tabs--that does help me navigate faster. I had this set up before, but lost the setting when I refreshed Firefox.

Hello, I have issues with Firefox developer version for couple months now, when I play videos, like youtube, or other sites they constantly lag. They play for like 1min and lag, continue for another 2min then lag etc etc. (even short videos on twitter lag). It was not like that before and I don't have this problem in other browsers. Does anyone know what can be the problem here? Thanks
