I need help restoring my passwords. I saw a suggestion to refresh Firefox, and so I did, thinking it wasn't more than disabling the add-ons. I didn't realize it would eliminate my logins and passwords. Can someone help me find them? Otherwise I'm in some trouble.

I've installed Nightly the same way I have for years on my latest Fedora 33 install—i.e., download tarball, extract into /opt, set appropriate chmod and chown, make .desktop file, etc.—but certain videos certain videos on certain sites refuse to play. A Fedora discussion discussion led me to think it's how Fedora 33 may sandbox apps; I haven't yet had any hits on solutions in the Fedora groups, so I thought I'd ask here, since I can't be the only one with this issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

1 day ago firefox suggested I run refresh on my system. So of course I did without concern UNTIL I opened my webpages today and they are all different, smaller, harder to read and just not as they were before I ran refresh. I also didn't realize I would lose ONE TAB, but after reading about refresh I realized that would go away as well. I can live with that but I don't like the way webpages look. The pages look a little blurry as well. I'm using windows 10 and nothing else has been added and/or deleted. Any ideas? Thank you

Been having this issue for the last few weeks where Firefox just won't load YouTube properly. In particular, livestreams won't play, chat always show as "disconnected from chat" and I can't even access the profile menu (clicking on my profile pic on the top left just shows a loading icon forever).

Tried the following without any luck: 1. Safemode 2. Clearing all cache 3. Refresh firefox (When I first did a refresh, it started working again, then I went to sleep and the next morning the same problem is back again)

Any help would be much appreciated.

Video download helper with Firefox add-on stopped working – driving me bonkers

System Linux mint 18.2 Sonya

Video DownloadHelper Version 7.4.0 Browser locale: en-US Production build Built on Tue Dec 15 2020 17:14:16 GMT+0100 (Central European Standard Time) Build options: browser=firefox

I used to be able to record mainly music from YouTube and some other sources using video download helper with the Firefox add-on.

It used to direct me sometimes to using the companion app, then at other times not.

The thing is now that it starts to record with a blue numbered disc showing. It gets almost to the end of the download, then the circle turns red and I get the following type of error messages – see below.

I also do not have the same layout on the 3 colour disc download helper button.

Updated the add-on but cannot find any specific help.

Would be very grateful for a simple fix, or complicated, that – OR, is there a better product??

Seasons greetings

Several weeks ago (not sure when it really started) I noticed that Gmail would not load. Going to the Gmail page I get the following: Temporary Error We’re sorry, but your account is temporarily unavailable. We apologize for the inconvenience and suggest trying again in a few minutes.You can view the G Suite Status Dashboard for the current status of the service. As I said, this "temporary" error seems to be permanent. This happens in FF and Chrome (I rarely use chrome). I have cleared ALL data. I have refreshed FF. MS Edge accesses Gmail. So, I think it seems like a Mozilla problem, some how.

So, I recently downloaded firefox with no issues, I was making an account (using the browser) in order to do the sync when I accidentally mistyped my age (I think I might have even typed 0). Clearly, I am not 0, (I turned 18 this September) but since I was now a 'child' anytime I tried to make an account it told me I wasn't allowed. I made this account on chrome with my other email but now I'm stuck since I still can't login using firefox. I couldn't find anything about resolving this (sorry if there was something)
