Hello. I just created a master password to protect my website passwords. However, this master password is required to start a session with Firefox. My suggestion is that you do not require the master password to start a Firefox session, only to access the passwords information, or to create and remember a login password for a new website. It is a hassle to enter the master password every time I want to use Firefox. Or should I keep firefox open the entire day?

Earlier today I changed my settings in "Privaty & Security" to "Clear history when Firefox closes". In that setting I selected to only delete "Browsing and download history."

I assumed this would just delete my browsing history from the URL bar, but now after I closed Firefox, it also deleted all my tabs!! There were many important tabs that I don't want to lose. But I also can't find them under 'recently closed tabs', and I also tried a solution from this forum, namely to find the recovery file and upload them to https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html -- but they don't contain my old tabs either!

Is there still something I can do to recover my lost tabs??

I recently changed the Privacy & Security settings in Firefox v100.0.2 (Mac) to "Enable HTTPS-Only Mode in all Windows". Since that change, even though Google is my default search engine, all searches take me to a window that says: "You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of www.searchbaron.com is not available." I did a google search and the recommendation was to delete the searchbaron extension in Extensions but there isn't one there. I like the security of only going to https sites and if possible would like to keep that setting.

Does anyone know what is going on and how I can fix this? Thanks.

macOS 14.1.1 on an M2 with FF 120.

When going to sites such as nbcnews.com/now or https://toronto.ctvnews.ca, A/V sync is off by about a second.

This appears to be due to the volume being muted when video playback starts. Unpausing the video leads to the video freezing for a very brief moment, then the A/V sync is clearly incorrect.

This can be replicated on YouTube by loading a video, muting the video (if not muted already), refreshing the page (F5), allowing the video to play, then unmuting the video. The sync will be incorrect.

If the audio is unmuted when the video play back starts, this does not appear to happen.

Following this article has no impact: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/performance-settings, nor does setting media.hardware-video-decoding.enabled to false.

This issue does not occur on Microsoft Edge.

Hello - I keep searching for various fixes to this, but nothing seems to work. I have the latest version of firefox. Macbook user. Catalina 10.15 I find that with almost any website that I'm trying to log into, or enter a credit card and other information, the browser does not show these items, pull downs, forms to fill in etc. I'll go thru a whole process of something, and will be directed to click a box or some such that just isnt there. So I move over to Safari, and the entire page loads. I've adjusted the privacy, cleared cache etc. It's like I'm on an ancient browser.

Any help welcome.

fedex.com has broken my browser!

I have a FedEx account for my business, but I no longer use it. However, I also receive packages from FedEx from time to time. For reasons that cannot be explained by anyone at FedEx, my Firefox browser will not allow me to create a new FedEx account to manage my deliveries. In other words, after I enter my new username & password, the FedEx website comes back with a failure message with words to the effect that, "This didn't work, please refresh your page."

I called FedEx tech support & learned they are now totally incompetent. The only solution that was offered was "Clear all of your browser history". I didn't fall for that - I did however delete all history with "fedex" in the link. I also removed all 31 cookies associated with fedex.com. Then, I re-started the browser, and tried again:

Upon summoning the fedex.com login page, the login information was pre-filled with the userid & password for my old, unused business account! How does this happen without cookies or history? Where is fedex.com getting this data? Is it stored on my browser - or does fedex.com have some nefarious scheme whereby they're using my computer id or IP or???

I need to delete every shred of data in my browser that is associated with FedEx - how do I do this?

Hi, is there any fix for the following? The functionality is intentional but it is absolutely maddening, so I'm hoping there is a plugin workaround or something:

> Pinned tabs are bound to a specific window, so make sure to Quit Firefox while this window is still open and do not simply close a window and leave Firefox running with the menu bar visible.

The user should never be in a position where one simple wrong move obliterates things they've saved (even if it is a recoverable situation). To say 'the user must close windows in a certain order else lose all the tabs they clearly don't want to lose' is just bizarre.

It's kind of hard to describe aside from the title.

Only happens when I am using the drop down bookmarks toolbar. When I right-click on an item to bring up the menu, it flickers for an instant, then hides behind the bookmarks drop down menu. Ok, so I guess I could explain it a bit more.

But here's a video showing it more in detail. https://www.loom.com/share/a166451f9354463dbbb6d9faf57df315

I was trying to use the Private Mode with all the extensions disabled to see if that would solve the issue, but alas, it didn't help me isolate anything.

on Mac, Bookmark contextual menu now only copies/pastes Title, instead of Link, into Twitter

Through the years (been using FF since its first months) on various computers, various OS and FF versions, I've kept a bunch of bookmarks in my toolbar for frequently used links that I can QUICKLY "right-click, copy link, paste" (3 steps) into social media posts.

Tonight I opened up my bookmark contextual menu, hit copy, pasted it into my Twitter, and it pasted the title instead of the link!!

How useless is that! A title is easy to type out, a long complex url isn't, having a "copy" (title) instead of the "copy link" is entirely useless!

Now to accomplish same, I have go choose "edit" instead of "copy link" and then "click drag" the url then "copy" then "paste" then close the window. 5+ steps instead of 3. Who on Earth thought changing that function was a good idea?! More steps is NEVER a good direction.

IOS: 12.6.3 Firefox 102.9.0esr macbook rebooted cached cleared

Clarification coming from possible answers: Firefox's "Paste" function is working fine, since the url correctly pastes to Mac PAGES and Facebook. It's the paste to Twitter that does "Title" instead of "url". So obviously a Firefox-Twitter problem.

Variation of problem: I tried "Copy" from Firefox Bookmark Subemnu, then went over to Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" to Twitter on Chrome also results in a paste of Title instead of url. I tried "Copy" from Chrome Bookmark Submenu, then paste into Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" correctly pastes the url. This points to a mis-programming of the Firefox "Copy" function in the bookmark submenu.

Since the most current Firefox update in June 2022, when in Yahoo Mail and downloading an attachment, as the download complete, the Yahoo Mail tab is automatically closing, requiring I to go to 'History', then 'Recently Closed' tabs to re-open it. This happens Every.Single.Time I download photos and scanned docs from email. Again, this has never happened before - only with the recent Firefox update. I have 2021 a MacBook Pro.
