Last week attaching documents using drag and drop suddenly stopped working for Outlook webmail. I've seen the same problem posted here, but no response yet. Already tested, this feature still does work in outlook when using Safari, so there is some new incompatibility between outlook and firefox. I really do NOT want to change browsers as I've been using Firefox forever, but this is a deal breaker. Please please Firefox, show some evidence that this new apparent incompatibility is being fixed. Thanks!

p.s. this doesn't seem like it should be left to volunteers, is there a way for messages to reach someone who actually works for firefox?

firefox sync server reverse proxy not working

I'm self hosting a firefox sync server on unraid. If I set it up on the local network, it works. I use this public address in the docker container http://localhost:5000 and the about:config server as identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://localhost:5000/token/1.0/sync/1.5.

Now if I switch to my reverse proxy, I use this public address in the docker container http://firefox.mydomain.com and the about:config server as identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://firefox.mydomain.com:5000/token/1.0/sync/1.5. It does not sync. I get an error if I use that url in the browser link. If I make it http://firefox.mydomain.com/token/1.0/sync/1.5 (taking out the port number), my browser displays a json page. But if I remove the port number in the about:config and make it identity.sync.tokenserver.uri = http://firefox.mydomain.com/token/1.0/sync/1.5, it logs me out of the firefox account.

The reverse proxy is passing port 5000 through, so that is why not specifying it returns a valid browser page. The about:config seems to need the port specified to work. Otherwise I'm getting logged off. Is there a workaround to this?

I am running Firefox 99.0 on an iMac with MacOS Catalina 10.15.7. With a recent update to Firefox I can no longer print using the system dialog box as default. I did already try switching the "print.tab_modal.enabled preference" to "false" and that simply doesn't work. When that flag is set to "false" and I print from within Firefox, the Firefox print dialog comes up, not the system print dialog. Why can't I change it so that the system print dialog comes up by default?????

1. What do I need to do so that when I answer questions in an online survey by checking a box a mark actually shows up in that box? Increasingly the box remains blank but I know my question -- which I hope was entered in the right box -- was registered because the "Next" button works.

2. Also, more and more I cannot connect to a website that Firefox thinks may not be safe but it is and I have to "temporarily" inactivate the block. How can we fix that?'

Is there a maximum number of tabs that can be synced? I have about 800 tabs on my old computer, but when I look at the synced tabs in the sidebar on the new computer, only about half of them are listed. The oldest 400 or so are missing.

And yes, I realize 800 tabs is insane. But that's another discussion. :)

I own a mac and had to erase all my data from my computer in order to upgrade to new system. Issue is - the apple support person did not remind me to save down my firefox browser data/bookmarks. Now my mac is updated and it's like a brand new computer. I searched previous forums and apparently firefox automatically saves down your data but I don't see it in the appropriate folder (Old Firefox Data >bookmarkbackups) - I see data from 2016 and 2017. Can I recover these bookmarks?? I had a lot of important ones saved..

Hi there. I'm in the process of switching from Chrome and I want to import my passwords.

I first tried the 'import from Chrome' option - it says it's successful, but nothing has actually been added. Same result after several attempts.

I then tried the csv route. I found out I had to change the config settings, so I did just that, but the 'import CSV' option still isn't showing even after a reset.

So now I'm at a dead end. Any bright ideas please? TIA!

FYI I'm using Firefox 99.0.1

from preferences page: Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 17,179,869,184 GB of disk space.

almost all are Facebook storage. I'm feeling a little reluctant to delete all site data. If I clear all cookies and site data will that fix the issue? will the issue re-occur?

I'm trying to recover a profile that has the most recent history, tabs and pinned tabs that I seem to have either lost or overwritten yesterday. I can try to reconstruct from my actual history but I don't remember everything I had open. I'm also not sure what to do with all the profiles that are associated with my browser. The version with my actual name is not the default and is an initial version I used on an older computer.A ny easy answers would be appreciated. It's frustrating that there is no way to contact them Mozilla directly.

Thanks

How can I delete cache and cookies, but keep history, every time I close Firefox?

Under Privacy and Security I have Firefox set to 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' with no exceptions listed.

When I close and reopen Firefox, the cookies are correctly deleted, but the cache is not. I have to manually go into this setting to delete them. This also happens if I go to the menu bar setting of 'history/clear recent history'.

I want to keep my history of where I've been, but clear clear cookies and the cache every time close.

This doesn't seem like an unreasonable request for a browser that bills itself as being privacy oriented, but I don't see how to do this. Doing banking, I have to manually go into Privacy each time to get this done to clear the site.

From looking at previous answers to this question it seems the current way Firefox is designed this is "not a bug, but a feature".

On an IPAD, when I do the identical search on Firefox and Safari, on Safari, the results contain many stores with each store containing many small images. While the stores display for both, on Safari the images do display, but on Firefox, the results do not display the images. The blank spaces where the images would go are visible, but no images occupy those spaces. An example would be to search for 'scooters'. No such glitch happens using Firefox on macbook air

How can I fix this, if I can.

I keep getting this prompt: "It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies." I have tried so many things and nothing is working. I've had this happen before sometimes at the beginning of a semester; but I have been able to restore it in the past. Now, nothing I do works. Please help. Also, how can we prevent this from happening again? Kaltura is a well known website used by colleges and universities for teaching online classes and playing back video. Why do we have to constantly update the settings? And if so, why are they not working now? Please help. I need to teach my class. Thanks.
