I want to have a unified bookmark experience over two different user accounts on my desktop computer (one is my 'ordinary' account, the other is the Administrator' account. Importing bookmarks is a one-time event, and entropy takes over immediately afterwards. It occurs to me that using a Shortcut, to point to a single file, may be a solution. The idea being that any change to the single file will automatically perpetuate itself to both accounts.

My question - is this reasonable, or is there an even niftier way of doing this (a sort of "Blend the properties for these two accounts" type of setting).

Thanks,

Tony

I have seen that the MS Explorer displays "On august 17, 2021 Outlook will no longer support the Internet Explorer 11 Browser. Download now" How will this effect Firefox? For instance; I use Hotmail and I wonder can you still use Cloud with the Firefox? Perhaps other issues arise as well.

Based on my friend's statement to me that HE WAS ABLE TO EASILY DOWNLOAD ANYBODY'S YOUTUBE VIDEO VIA HIS FIREFOX BROWSER I put Firefox on my desktop PC specifically so that I could download my own youtube videos via my youtube channel's DOWNLOAD BUTTON that had suddenly (after working fine for several months) stopped working for me on Chrome. *This download button had been for weeks working perfectly fine in my brand new FIREFOX browser but has just now suddenly stopped working: Is this a problem with FIREFOX or is youtube preventing me (by blocking my IP address or something) from downloading to my PC MY OWN VIDEOS?

Firefox and IE can access most web pages, but both go "unable to connect" on mozilla.org

Hello,

I'm trying to update Firefox on a relative's Windows 10 computer, but none of the installed browsers can reach the Mozilla main pages. We're stuck on version 72.0.2

Other webpages load fine. The only way I've gotten mozilla.org to load is by using a web proxy, but then the error appears when I try to download the latest version of firefox (it's always "download was interrupted" then). Going down the recommendations on this help page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-and-other-browsers-cant-load-websites , I verified that windows firewall allows Firefox. Then I checked the system time and the wireless connection. Flushing the DNS cache was similarly fruitless. Other computers using the same internet provider in the same house don't have this problem, so I don't think the ISP is at fault. I even went looking for the DNS number of the website and tried inputting that into my address bar. Still no luck. I made an HTTP log file of the error through about:networking, as described here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Debugging/HTTP_logging, and will attach it. I really hope you can help me troubleshoot this; it's been plaguing my relative for an excruciatingly long time.

... hm. Your attachments browser window doesn't see .moz_log files, so I've uploaded them to this ge.tt address: http://ge.tt/1ocAom83 .

Regards, Silvia

Hi. Probably the biggest savings and loan institution in the UK is the Nationwide Building society. 16 million customers and holds £6 Billion in deposits. Their https certificate is issued by ESET. But the information box under the padlock says: 'Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognised by Mozilla'. Why doesn't Mozilla recognised ESET? There are no issues when using MS Edge or Opera. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/

With Firefox 68.12.0esr and 78.3.1esr I can get to outlook.com. I cannot sign in. Browser responds per attachment.

I've tried;

  • No A/V products running or even installed
  • Renamed Hosts file
  • Rebooted PC
  • Set content blocking to standard
  • Disabled in turn each of url filters, keyword filters and network services filters on my router
  • Run Firefox in safe mode

Windows 10 1809 LTSC. We use only Firefox. No other browsers installed.

Why might only this particular website of all the we use have this problem?

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

i Totally agree with this now closed post: I just returned to Firefox due to high level hacker threats & identity theft basically I'm still battling,so I have to have all Social Media in Containers from now on & can't use other browsers w/o containers, so I get it all setup & had my sync on & the containers start acting up, so I see a suggestion to just simply refresh it, oh yea, that solves most problems, NO IT CAUSES MORE THAN IT SOLVES! Now my Lastpass pw mgr, can't get clipboard permission cause the page just comes up blank,when I try to copy/paste a pw, to sign into sync even, I had to past from outside using another browser & don't have containers on it, Brave should catch up to this, cause Chrome,clearly doesn't have containers, so I'm done using it & now w/o Firefox working right I'm screwed, it's so aggravating, Just when I thought firefox was doing good again, nope, you're back on my shitlist. I'm pissed just like this guy! I got my bookmarks & think I got the sync working but you shouldn't suggest refresh to fix issues, now how do I get my lastpass working? cause I have pop up blockers disabled & the permission page for firefox won't come up, just a blank page every time I try to copy a pw to paste in, manually, ugh, I hate this!

I stupidly accepted the Firefox suggestion to refresh my browser and everything i worked so hard for is gone. Its going to take me forever to FIX what your stupid site has screwed up. YOU REALLY OUGHT TO TELL PEOPLE IF YOU USE THIS YOUR GOING TO BE SCREWED

So I thought I'd just delete it and start over but even that has so many steps I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR THIS STUPID CRAP AND I REALLY HATE FIREFOX FOR SCREWING UP MY COMPUTER AND MY DAY

I AM SOOOOOOOO SCREWED - all my bookmarks I HATE YOU I HATE FIREFOX I CAME TO YOUR SITE THINKING IT WOULD BE SAFE AND YOU HAVE DESTROYED EVERYTHING

I SEE in another thread about deleting firefox and creating another profile and about 10 million other steps i don't know how to do but if I close firefox as you said then i can see your frigging directions I HATE YOU

Modified February 16, 2016 at 10:39:48 AM PST by KC Chosen solution

I understand that you're frustrated, but it only takes a couple minutes to copy the files. Take it step by step. Do not delete anything, that will only make it worse. Do not use Windows' system restore feature, that may make it totally irreversible.

In another thread (https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1098179) you said the steps I posted were not clear. Where did you run into problems? Read this answer in context

I feel ridiculous but I have always set FireFox to open a new window when I clicked on a link. For some reason it stopped doing that today. It just follows the link in the existing window. I cannot find the option to get the old action. Searches bring up methods from many obsolete versions. Even this site brings up over 2800 hits but I can't find the one I need.

BLOCKING FILE SYSTEM ACCESS -- DANGEROUS ALLOWANCE -- IDEAS & SUGGESTIONS

Hello to all, I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years… (read more)

Hello to all,

I was searching on Google how to block file:///C:/ or file:///D:/ because this is dangerous to allow!!! Shocking! And this is still not fixed after years of developments... Why? To keep this allowed makes it too easy for hackers, especially with multiple screens and a shadow/background screens available which can be running in the background, not seen, when hackers do that.. Kind of the way TeamViewer allows help to be provided remotely. Kind of screen sharing. Oh well...

Maybe need lots of complaints from you all to get this changed?..


Try yourselves to use file://C:/ with 2 // and file:///C:/ with 3 // and both are allowing access to the whole file system and any data file. BONKERS??? But why to use 3 /// if 2 // still works? Insider's job or programming conflict? Why would Firefox programmers allow that? I do not understand...

I tried to use selective website blocker, but for file:/// that addon says that the page is not supported... Maybe another type of addon could be developed for this to be blocked and secured once and for all, but not sure if Firefox would allow such an access or such a blocking. May cause issues with Downloads and accessing download folder from within Firefox. HOWEVER, they could block any system or file access from the ADDRESS BAR and SEARCH BAR and then do a work-around solution by developing a special warning 'dialog message' each time when any user (owner or remote user) tries to access forlder to see or use any file. That would be a lot like a guest account requiring password to access special folder or file, or wants to perform an action usually not allowed for a guest user. Password is required for that each time, or at leats a visual confirmation. That would help, I hope...

Would need to re-educate users after this! TOO DANGEROUS TO KEEP THIS IN SUCH A WAY AS IT IS NOW!!!!

DOES FIREFOX TEAM UNDERSTAND THIS? Maybe they forgot about this, maybe they did not figure out how to solve this, or maybe someone from an inside is helping hackers to have a very easy access? Not sure, but this "open doors to all system and data files for anyone" is shocking!


What about business or government people? What about online bullying and harrassment? What about privacy about which Firefox writes so much? Need more complaints to make this a serious issue. So, everyone, please write your own comments or complaints to Firefox and Chrome directly and maybe they will listen. This may take more work than we think, but my ideas may help. What about your ideas? Express them below and maybe they will help as well.


You all can ask them for this to be blocked or solved, so ask. Maybe my ideas will help to get this moving. Write your own to them as well. And Microsoft may need to get involved as well because Firefox, and from what I read, Chrome allows this too... Other browsers may be doing that as well...!!!!!! There are loads of various browsers available!!!! I read something about Windows Policies, but I do not understand what that is...


(( !!! )) If any of you will try any system changes in an attempt to try solving this issue, make sure you are okay to risk with crashed system requiring reinstall or recovery to be used, and then, write down all the changes you do in detail before carrying any further and applying them because that may ruin the system without a way to recover it.

Thank you in advance.
