I just installed Brave, and clicked on "Import settings & bookmarks", then chose Firefox from a popup list

Without typing my password, or doing anything else, Brave then instantly imported all of the saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox. I can now view all of my most secret saved passwords of Firefox... in Brave

This makes me wonder, if Brave can instantly import (and display in clear text) all of my Firefox saved passwords, couldn't any other rogue app do exactly the same?

Shouldn't they be stored in an encrypted format, at least?

Am I missing something or are the passwords wide open that Firefox saves?

dear ladies and gentlemen,

Firefox has been delivered with the new print dialog since version 82.

I have to print around a hundred PDF files at work (usually only the first page of the document). The new print dialog means that there is a lot more work for me here.

Is it possible to set the "old" system print dialog by default or to instruct firefox to always print only the first page of the document by default?

As you can see in attached GIFs, bookmarks in superior bookmark bar can be moved easily just as should be, but in additional bookmark field they can't be moved at all. I try to move them, but there is no "insert here" line appearing, and after I release my left mouse button it somehow opens the bookmark the cursor was on at the release moment. No matter fullscreen or windowed mode. I have custom "animated Codama" theme and some add-ons like "Midnight Lizard" and "uBlock", but disabling any of them doesn't help. Any ideas?

Within the last few weeks, sometimes when I try to use Firefox, I'm told to reconnect to Firefox. I reconnect by entering my account password, etc., but after I've thus reconnected, my previously saved passwords are gone. I've tried to import them from another browser, but it doesn't import them. The only way that I can proceed is to manually enter my passwords to other sites. Everything is good for a few days, but eventually, I'm asked to reconnect to Firefox, and when I do, my saved passwords are gone. This is so frustrating that I'm about to stop using Firefox. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Thanks.

I have Mozilla VPN installed on my PC. I just began new home internet service with T-Mobile. The internet connection is great with the VPN off. As soon as I turn the VPN on, all internet functionality is lost until I turn the VPN off again. I want to use the VPN.

Are there settings in my computer I need to change? Or with the VPN?

First of all, my request concerns the "Free box TV" function or button or application of the Freebox server web interface running under OS version 4.2.7 with the default browser Firefox 84.0.2 (64bits) which allows to watch or record freebox TV channels on PC. Malfunction observed: After uninstalling "Adob flash player" dated January 13,2021 and upon the requested installation of VLC 3.0.12 with web plugin, Mozilla plugin and Active X plugin activated, it is impossible to open the "Free box TV" function or button or application. Indeed a double click on this button invariably leads to the edition of the message: "impossible to watch TV, you must install " flash player "plugin (which no longer exists since January 12,2021)or the VLC plugin which is a NPAPI one (not allowed by Firefox). Everything happens as if the installation of VLC had not been detected. I tried with 2 other browsers: microsoft Edge and Avast secure browser with an identical malfunction NB: the VLC player works nominally and allows to read the TV network stream from the freebox server. Questions: Q1: Do I have to install the extension or the module "Open in VLC media player" in the Firefox browser in order to open the "Freebox TV" application? Q2: Do I have to wait for a further Freebox development of this function which would be based on HTML5? with my thanks

How do I setup WebVR in Firefox for Oculus Rift with a Radeon Graphics card?

Only info I can find about this is where they explain how to make it work for Oculus Rift with Nvidia's Graphics card. I can't find any mention of AMD's stuff. I have AMD RX 5700.

One of those setup instructions says to download and install Firefox, allow unknown sources in Oculus Home (which I have done). And then it says this: "For PCs (especially laptops) using Nvidia chipsets, there are several methods of enabling the discrete GPU. One way is from the NVIDIA Control Panel: Load 3D Settings > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings tab, and select Mozilla Firefox (firefox.exe) as the program to customize, and select “High-performance NVIDIA processor" as the preferred graphics processor. "

What if I have AMD Graphics? Am I unable to use a VR browser until I get an nvidia graphics card? Why is there no info about this anywhere????
