I mistakenly said "never" to "save password?" and cannot reverse it with " manage logins" setting.

I save passwords but mistakenly answered "never" to "save password?" for ONE site. I want to save PW but it WON'T LET ME. I use "manage logins" but it WON'T SHOW UP there. It should not be irreversible. I cannot find setting to remove it from "never save password" list. How to reverse that mistake and save the password? (I am in Ghostery browser but Firefox was the choice offered me.)

Greetings, My phone is set to reopen all tabs when restarting, which has worked flawlessly for months. I just restarted my phone to find all my tabs closed. My history is still populated, however closed pages/tabs is not even listed let alone populated. My history is all from my recent tab, as it is very limited, being an android. There doesnt seem to be any option to find closed tabs anywhere else let alone search history further than 50-100 pages or so....

Any chance anyone has any possible suggestions, most appreciated either way, thank you for your time.

When I try to download a PDF file from any website I get the error message " the file could not be downloaded. Please save the file to local storage and then try to open it. I wind up having to open the site in chrome to view the PDF. I would rather use Firefox. What can I do?

Cannot confirm Firefox is installed on my phone

So I installed Firefox on my computer and I am trying to finish setting up my Firefox account. It keeps asking me to link my phone number and to install Firefox on it, so I did by going onto Google Play Store and installing the browser. Even though I logged onto my Firefox account via my phone, Firefox on my computer still asks me to set it up on my phone. Because of this, I can't finish registering my account.

Even clicking the link that was sent via SMS doesn't work; it opens in Firefox but nothing happens on the other end.

I tried refreshing the awaiting confirmation page, it just brings me back to the page shown in the first image.

I closed Firefox, re-opened it, signed out of my account, and signed back in again. It keeps asking me for a phone number.

I tried all the steps in this article, and it doesn't work either: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/im-having-problems-confirming-my-firefox-account

Here are the screenshots of the pages (uploading them via the form doesn't work)

Greetings everyone!

I noticed, that sometimes pictures are not adjusting on mobile version of the Firefox. For instance here https://www.talkaboutsleep.com/best-sheets-for-adjustable-beds/ (https://www.talkaboutsleep.com/) when you're browsing tables - preview picture looks smaller than it should be (mobile version). I thought that there was a problem with a certain website (or a pic), but when I'm using mobile Chrome picture looks like it should look like - it fits the table and is not oversized. I also found more examples of the pages with the same trouble. Screenshots with comparison (both desktop and mobile version of both browsers) attached.

The biggest danger I've seen searching the net, and I do a lot of it for research....is malisous ads. Many websites use ad servers and have no idea of the bad ads that slip thru, until enough people are effected.

Now firefox exposes us all to malisous ads. Probably millions. It would be better to have an unsigned version of adblock plus, then none at all.

...and by the way, I'm not giving up XP either. In the nearly 20 years I've used it, I've never been hacked in any way... thanks to the other softwares I use to secure it.
