I normally delete all history, including cookies, each time I log out of Firefox 99.0. I have two sites for which I would like to keep cookies. I entered them as exceptions, but each time I log out those exceptions are lost.

Is there any way I can those specific cookies?

Thank you.

After firefox update to 100.0 - i can't use any of my addons, and cant install new one. All my current updates appears in "disabled" status, and there's no "enable" button. I have many addons, so it's the global problem.

Also, i can't install any of updates from addons.mozilla.org, i get message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt". All addon xpi files are downloaded without problem using "save as", also, after clicking "install" on addons website i see download progress.

Please help to resolve this issue!

I have been using Firefox for a long time. I can't even think of using another of those of the other browsers tht are so intrusive. I just noticed, and I think it is new,, that my history button shows my personal emails I have visited. Of course no one can go there and see the entire email massage without my login and pwd. But it is still awful - for example I just looked again and there is the security verification code - 3****2 - I just used to sign up for Firefox Accounts. So all my subjects of personal concern are right there for all the world to see what I am talking about with other people. I don't have anything to hide (right now) but I can imagine many ideas that I would rather not have snooping eyes able to see. I'm sure that many people with different lifestyles that me would be LIVID if they knew that their subjects of emails were available to be visible on an open page. - Here are some others in my history list: "Adrian-Your credit limit has increased--Chase..." "John L***** has joined your personal meeting room" "Lucky Brand Jeans + casual pants now buy one get 1 . . ." "Your Online Bill is available - Verizon Wireles . . ." - - - Like I said, I don't remember ever seeing history references to my personal emails before. I enjoy using the history button - it's much faster than going to bookmarks or typing in. I have looked at the subjects of help but it doesn't seem to cover this. I hope I don't have to go to the trouble of VPN or "Always delete history" - - hope you can help with a bug fix or simple setting. - - Jerme

It has recently come to my attention that Mozilla may not continue to support Firefox browsers installed on Windows 7 computers after Jan. 2023, when the extended support for Windows 7 ends. Is that correct?

Will Firefox continue to work, but not receive security updates after that date?

Will Firefox still work on a Windows 7 computer that gets patches from 0Patch?

Thanks!

Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!

Hi, for the long time when I have opened an PDF with external application, it was downloaded into system %TEMP%, then deleted after ext. app was closed. Very fine and expected.

Since ca. few weeks such PDFs are now downloaded to Desktop - and not removed afterwards! It's quite annoying to clear them again and again. I've checked, my %TEMP% and %TMP% are set correctly and writeable.

In Belgium, we use a "electronic Identification card" to access differents officials web site. but with Firefox I (We!!!) have a problem... the identification process loop with a message "Please insert the smart card" ??? After I receive the message: "Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to certif.iamfas.belgium.be. A PKCS #11 module returned CKR_GENERAL_ERROR, indicating that an unrecoverable error has occurred.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_PKCS11_GENERAL_ERROR"

I restart, I reinstall FF, I reinstall the eID software... no way!!! But it's work fine with Chrome, Edge,... Why not with Firefox 98.0.2 ?!? It's very important to find a solution for the belgian users, without this support, the users go to Chrome, Edge,... Have a nice day, Philippe
