Hello,

My time is wrong in Firefox. When I see the time stamps of my productivity on any social or business site, they are about 4 hours ahead. In other browsers (Chrome & Edge), everything is fine. In Windows, my time is properly set. This includes my Time Zone in Control Panel as well.

I have uninstalled Firefox, restarted, and did a fresh install. I am having the same issue.

Firefox 82.0 (Restart Doesn't Update Client) 82.0.3 Update

To you awesome people,

I've experienced this issue in several Windows 10 installations now, different builds, running 19042 currently, Home 64-bit.

My issue:

I can install Firefox without issues, configure it to my taste, no issues on that end.

I choose C:\Mozilla as my install directory.

However, whenever there's an update and I choose to download and install it, it downloads and installs fine, but when I need to restart the browser to apply the update, nothing has been updated.

As in this very instance, it was downloading and installing 82.0.3, but once restarted, Firefox is still stuck in 82.0.

I've not tampered with about:config just configured Firefox in the regular options.


What could be the cause?

Anyone else having these issues?

Thanks.

The new version of Firefox has removed the drop-down arrow from the address bar, a feature I use several times a day.

Previously, there was a way to restore this by setting a number of "browser.urlbar" options to "False." However, these are currently set at False.

Please advise. Without the drop-down arrow, Firefox is not useful at all.

When I use Firefox on the external monitor, I set the zoom level to 150%. When I leave home a take my laptop with me, I set the zoom level to 100% to use with a smaller screen.

I want to automate setting the zoom level.

Is there a way to programmatically set the zoom level from a script? Does Firefox expose such an API / command-line tool?

Thanks!

I never use Top Sites, but now Amazon is suddenly pinned as a Top Site and clicking the "unpin" option doesn't do anything! As a result, each time I use the address bar, the first option it gives me is Amazon. Is there ANY way to unpin it?

I refuse to give that awful human of a Jeff Bezos and his Amazon any more exposure than it already has, and have it normally blocked. If Firefox FORCES me to give attention to them, then I have no other choice to move away from Firefox after years and years of using it.

The options page and addons pages are almost completely unreadable.

For several weeks they have rendered as white text on a very light gray background.

I thought that this was a temporary bug that would be cleaned up in the usual way.

Using 78.4.0esr on Windows.

Is there any fix for this?

It is there whether or not I have my usual theme which I have used for several years now, change to an alternative theme or turn off themes altogether. In safe mode the screens are sometimes usuable but that requires turning off all addons. Doing the same without going into safe mode has no effect on this.

Any advice?

Hi. I am moving my Firefox settings from the old IBM to the new MintBox computer. Both run Linux Mint. Procedure so far followed:

1. Bring over key4.db and logins.json 2. Sign in to Firefox sync and import everything.

Over here I got my custom settings to save all cookies, even third party cookies, for the session. There were Exceptions, which did not come over. (Here I will Allow Always the websites I keep a cookie to log in automatically or set site preferences. I may even blockm certain third party sites from storing cookies. These deviate from the default, to allow for session.)

I did not get the custom thumbs I created over there for my New Tab start page pinned sites. I got the pinned sites OK.


This didn't work: I copied the .mozilla folder from my home and pasted it here by way of a flash driveafter backing up this profile. That didn't work when I brought Firefox up from a Thunderbird Mail link.


So now I looked to see what my Profile folder is called, stored in my home/.thunderbird/firefox/{Profile} as found under Firefox Help > Troubleshooting. I copied that folder onto a flash drive and have it available here.

How best to proceed? First I back .mozilla up, then open Firefox and go to the Troubleshooting page and open my active Profile. Then:

Copy selected files from my Profile over on the Flash drive and paste them individually here?

Delete everything here before pasting in a copy of the contents of the imported profile?

Don't delete anything here and paste contents of my imported file, overwriting?

I am tending to want to go with the first choice, adding or replacing files here with selected files from the imported copy sitting on the flash drive.

Is there a specific list and description of the various profile files I need to paste in? An up-to-date reference containing this info?

[b]Running Linux Mint 19.3 64-bit MATE on the old IBM Running Linux Mint 20 Cinnamon on the new MintBox Mini 2 (Pro)/b

Thank you.
