if an extension requires an 'Access your data for all websites' permission then firefox requires me to choose either allow this extension to steal all my sensitive data, or not to use the extension at all.

for such cases, chrome allows me to choose when and where i prefer to allow the extension to see these data and when and where to restrict it from accessing them: Site access Allow this extension to read and change all your data on websites you visit:

  • On click
  • On specific sites
  • On all sites

does firefox allow this somehow? i'd prefer to have an option to restrict such access in some cases by clicking the extension button, in some - by white or black listing specific sites (mostly whitelisting), and for some cases - do not restrict.

Moin, I activated the HTTPS-only mode as I used the "https everywhere" plugin so far.

But, in a very special network segment for radio amateurs, the 44-network (ampr.org) encryption is not allowed. So is there a way to configure the HTTPS-only mode in a way to say ".... but not for 44.0.0.0/8?

i prefer one configuration than constantly clicking the "continue to http site" button for the next few years.

Thanks in advanced

I have already: Ruled out fixes for very old Firefox versions, still online. Tried every preference, library, and bookmarking tool in menu. The three dots does not provide that choice. (It is the FIRST thing I tried.) Used the terminal to sudo apt-get purge Firefox and Used terminal to sudo apt install Firefox. Repeated above procedure after signing out, to stop any starless syncing. Signed back in. I had it when this computer was new, and I then installed Firefox, less than a year ago, Ubuntu canonical 20.04. Reinstalling should have the quick-bookmark star as I had when first installed. I have not: Selected "remove data from device". Next solution that actually works?

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

After migrating from Firefox 87 to 88.0.1 under linux-64 (debian 10), the browser became very slow. Typing has a delay of 2-3 seconds between end of type and appearence on screen. Same for loading pages. Migrating back to firefox 87 is a nuisance since part of the setup is lost and mozilla keeps insisting daily to switch to firefox 88. The articles in "Fix slowness" do not seem to help.

Any suggestion?

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

In short, I am looking for the Firefox 68 armhf deb? package installation file for Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) 10.

---

I use Raspbian 10 (Raspberry Pi OS). I used to keep a Firefox ESR 68 on hold (apt-mark hold) on 1 of my 2 Raspberry Pi machines. I offered this machine to a friend.

Now on my only left Raspberry Pi, Firefox ESR 68 is no longer provided by apt.

But I still need Firefox 68 on it, in order to remotely debug my userscripts on Firefox for Android 68.11.0 (latest version to support add-ons like Violentmonkey, thus userscripts) through adb.

Anyone knows how to install it back? I think I need an armhf.deb file, right?

I found: http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://github.com/jdonald/firefox-armhf/releases

But no trace of a version 68 deb file.

I then found some firefox-68.11.0esr.tar.bz2 in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/linux-x86_64/ Is x86_64 same as armhf? How do we install .tar.bz2 files in Linux?

I also see a firefox-68.11.0esr.snap in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/snap/ I would like to avoid installing snap but maybe I should try this instead, does it include armhf?

Hello

I've been using linux for 3 years now but never before fedora, i just installed Fedora 34 KDE and im having issues ive never had before, im wondering why and what i can do about it.

for example, ctrl+c seems not to be working. i have to look up a lot of guides and copy a lot of commands from websites using firefox and i want to paste them in the terminal but its finnicky, often doesnt, i cant quite get a hang of when it does and why sometimes it refuses.

another issue is ctrl+w works to close tabs but ctrl+f4 doesnt, but alt+f4 does work. what the hell?

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?
