Hello,

I installed 2 different versions of Firefox (80.0.1 and 77.01) and created 3 different profiles in each installation

The issue is FF stores all the different profiles data in single "profiles.ini" file (which is created by first installation of firefox) whereas as per Firefox documentation It should have created 2 different profiles.ini for 2 different version of firefox which is actually good for privacy reason.

OS is: Win 10 (64bit)

Please let me know how to resolve this issue?

Thanks in advance!

Hi. I use Duck Duck Go as my browser, but I've found that Firefox often sets my browser to Bing. It will do this for my search bar, and my home page. I'm fed up of changing it back! Devs, if you are listening - stop it! It makes Firefox feel like malware, and I am slowly but surely losing interest in what was once my go-to recomended browser. I repeat: I AM NOT INTERESTED. I don't want Bing! It can go screw itself with a red hot poker!

Hello;

Is the sync firefox account to be used only on 2 computers, e.g. part at work, part at home? and not e.g. to recover data after reconfiguring / setting up a new computer?

I forgot my computer to work, I had to reset my password because I haven't typed it in a long time; I don't have the passwords, I don't have any installed plugins, I don't have any browsing history;

if he knew I wouldn't be able to access to my data, I wouldn't have set up this account, because it gave me the illusion that in such a situation I would be able to continue working where I finished

Did I misjudge the features of this account? And after starting the computer on which I work every day I will have access to passwords or will they be erased there as well? If they are to be erased - is it better to make a copy of all passwords, history, etc. before connecting the computer to the network ?

Kind regards Norbert

I have my preferences to set to keep my logged and save cookies, but lately I have been getting logged out of websites I use regularly such as Reddit, GMail, Yahoo. History is set to clear when I close my browser because I don't need to be reminded that I searched for random words so I could spell them correctly.

This morning for example, I signed into Reddit because I had gotten signed out since last night. Did my reading. Closed my browser. Came back. Opened Reddit again and was signed out. It doesn't happen every time I close my browser. I may stay signed in for a few days with no issue or, like this morning, I don't stay signed in for very long. I even got a message that I wasn't signed in on tab I opened from another tab.

Is this a bug? Some undocumented feature?

It's not all bad though since it keeps me from constantly checking FB which I use 2FA for and hate going through.

I love the AutoFill feature, with some exceptions. And I am hoping someone can offer a solution, even if it is to tell me I am doing it wrong.

It seems like others would have a similar problem, and it is sort of difficult to explain, although I'd think there would be a simple solution. Anyway, let me try to explain...

When I use the autofill option, it is usually while placing an order, or filling out my account details for whatever shopping site, or gaming profile, etc. But I have multiple addresses I need to consider when I am shopping, and need to send the order to one or the other, instead of my regular address. Like placing an order that I want sent to my mother's address.

As anyone knows, when you change something, like the address, state, zip or phone number, you end up with several autofill entries. Like this...

First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but I can't see it in the pop-up) First Name, Last Name (My primary info, but my work address, which I also don't see) First Name, Last NAME First Name, Last Name FIRST NAME, Last Name First Name, Last Name

These pop up, all valid options, the next time you start filling out a form. Which is great, because ONE of them is the one you would like to use, but there is no way to see WHICH one points to the one you need. The first one is my normal address, phone, etc, but the autofill pop up doesn't show you anything other than the name, the second is my work, but I can't see that it is... only the name. The third might be my mom's address, but again, I have no idea because only my name is shown...etc etc etc.

Is there a better autofill plugin out there, one that lets you label them? Or some way to show more than just the name? Just showing me the same name 12 times, without any way to know what the right one to use is, kinda makes the autofill feature useless for me. If I only had one phone, or one address, etc, the feature would work great. But since I have about a dozen addresses I routinely use, each with their own unique state or zipcode, or phone number, has rendered autofill useless unless I only need the common "top" one.

I hope I've made it clear what the problem is. And no, using a unique firefox profile for each is not the answer. I'd have to log out/off firefox and switch profiles several times in one shopping or gaming session, which would only make the solution highly annoying.

It would be nice to find a plugin, or any other solution, that would let me label, or differentiate each from the other when the autofill pop-up gives me the option to fill the form.

Like... Home - First Name, Last Name Work - First Name, Last Name Mom's - First Name, Last Name Gary's - First Name, Last Name

Anyone have a solution, or feel my pain? Or am I simply doing it wrong?

ANY help is greatly appreciated.

Once upon a time when trying to create a blank tab, I accidentally typed "about:blank/" and this command doesn't work if the backslash is there.

Now anytime I want to create a blank tab and I type "about:blank" it automatically includes the backslash.

Because this phrase/command doesn't show up in my search history, even after clearing all of my data, Firefox keeps "helpfully" popping that backslash into the field whenever I start to type the command.

How can I make Firefox forget I ever made this stupid typo?! (Would clearing "Site Preferences" and/or "Offline Web Site Data" work? I admit I haven't cleared those two things.)

Geachte,

Heb al een tijd te maken met volgende foutmelding in mijn Telenet Webmail, zijnde ... 'Niet beveiligd' - mail.telenet.be/zimbra....

Heb reeds contact genomen met Microsoft Windows 10 Ondersteuningsteam, met Telenet zelf, met mijn pc verkoper/IT-er, maar niemand is blijkbaar in staat dit probleem op te lossen, want vandaag krijg ik die foutmelding nog steeds te zien in Telenet Webmail.

Wie kan voor dé oplossing nu zorgen ?

Dank bij voorbaat voor feedback.


Met vriendelijke groeten, Freddy Van De Velde

I have noticed that increasingly Cloudfare is blocking access to many websites with an intervening "security check page" that needs to be completed before Cloudfare will allow access to the desitination website. And this needs to be done repeatedbly even if you accessed the target site the day before or a few minutes ago. How ridiculous!

Their proposed solution is an add-on called Privacy Pass which has a 3.5 rating and is not authenticated by FF.

Is there a way to bypass Cloudfare i.e. force FF To resolve website address to non-Cloudfare addresses?

Or can FF authenticate and bake in Privacy Pass?

Interestingly enough, Epic Privacy Browser was able to access target sites without any problems, whereas FF, Chrome and IE were unable to do so in normal and private modes. TOR was unable to access as well.

Login credential saving and prefill has been working great and synching across devices extremely well for quite awhile now. Very impressive.

Unfortunately, I have encountered a website where credentials appear not savable. I verified the domain is not listed as one that should be excluded from this process. I also tried the solution described at this link which involves saving a javascript as a bookmark, then using that bookmark in the course of logging into a site where credentials are not being saved.

I am wondering if you can verify for me that this domain cannot have its login credentials saved by Firefox and if possible, explain why this is the case. The domain is washingtontimes.com, the signin link is in the upper right corner of the page if you go there.

I recognize this hard to check if you do not have an account with the site in question. My hope is you can see something to explain what I am seeing. This is a big ask, so I want to express special appreciation for any assistance or information you might be able to provide.

Thank you.
