In browser settings i've disabled telemetry and data sharing with "mozilla". Why do put mozilla in quotes? Because the data is actually going to google. I'm monitoring my computers connections and i see firefox connecting to google immediately after opening the browser, that's without connecting to any website. Firefox used to be a great privacy browser, these times are long gone and it's a shame. Mozilla, you have lost all honor.

Plus, libraries of firefox are proprietary? Which part exactly? Forks of firefox are most likely affected by the sroprietary libraries aren't they...

Hi,

I absolutely hate browsing forums for solutions to my problems.

I hate being forced to search FAQ's for questions that nobody asks frequently enough before being able to post something. I appreciate this is necessary to limit multiple threads about the same topic, but it's not the perfect solution.

It doesn't help if the admins of this forum fob off questions with an arrogant answer and close the thread.

I'm looking at you @dropa. Please chill. These people need to talk to each other. Don't just shove potatoes in their mouths send them packing.

I'm not trying to be abrasive, but I've seen this on other forums, it looks like bullying, and it is frustrating and, frankly, it's mean.

Thanks.

Hello, today I wanted to replace the "about:newtab" background with a picture.

I've already tried a lot like creating an extension, and adding the chrome folder with "userChrome.css" or "userContent.css" but I haven't had any luck whatsoever.

Could you help me in any way?

My preferred way would be through an extension to share it with my friends.

I already thank you in advance! :)

Best regards, Leon

Labelled as "Firefox Sync" as it may be involved, as the only preserved data is seemingly what comes through firefox sync.

Hi all, My C drive filled itself with 50GB of Crusader Kings 3 crash logs.

While the drive was (unknowingly) full, I opened firefox. Firefox was...wonky...and instantly I could tell something was wrong, as my speeddial homepage was missing all the sites. My best guess is that, in the worst timing ever, firefox sync chose this time to sync. I immediately cleared space on the drive, and restarted firefox. No extension data recovered. I restarted the PC. No extension data recovered.

I began following Firefox troubleshooting steps, such as checking about:profile. Other profiles are present, but each lacks any extensions or extension data. I widened my search with Everything, to search everywhere for any waylaid installs or profiles that may hold backups. Specifically, prefs.js, extensions.json, firefox.exe (incase I was somehow running a non-default install location) or any sign of other installations. I did find some hits, but none had extensions installed.

Perhaps useful, my FF profile weave folder is populated with many CORRUPT files, and the 'failed' folder lists addons, bookmarks, clients, extension-storage and prefs from it's most recent sync. Perhaps this is the result of trying to write to a full disk?

This is mostly an exercise of curiosity now, as the developer of Group Speed Dial (Juraj Mäsiar) helped me recover from their own backup system seperate from the Mozilla Preferences. I have an easy way to see if any backup file has the correct data, as I have many settings that are instantly visible.

Useful info: Antivirus - None added (Windows Defender) FF Version - 111.0.1 (64-bit) Profile - default-release

(Moz Helpers, the remainder of this post is irrelevant, and purely to help future travellers) If a weary traveller comes across this post in the future, I gift you my knowledge from the year 2023 of Group Speed Dial. At this time, the way you access the backups on your system is to navigate to the Group Speed Dial homepage. If you are on the default homepage, you should find the option to set it as New Tab or Homepage in Firefox settings. Next, as you face the oblivion of an empty dialler page, click the Burger Menu (top-right for me) for the extension. NOT the firefox burger menu, the one as if you were clicking a menu in a website. For me, the Fourth option is History/Backups. This is a new-ish feature from the developer, so don't be surprised if it move around...be they seem very proud of it, so I imagine it lurks somewhere!

If you just want to recover your extension list, at this time you can find a complete list of everything by examining extensions.js, extension-settings.js and extension-preferences.js. There is a tool online for helping parse into a human readable table, but I would not rely on it, and instead look into a generic JSON formatter to make the data human readable. The site is jeffersonscher.com, which has a extension file reader here https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/extensionsjson.html

Have a nice day all!

I signed on and when I made an account I clicked save log in, then it sometime after i entered the wrong password logging in and a popup said "Save New Password" or whatever even though the new login failed because it was the wrong password-- so I clicked Enter, thus erasing my previously saved real password for this website. Now I can't get into the account because I don't have my password.

Additionally, I entered the wrong EMAIL so I can't even click "forgot password" to get a recovery email, and I can't change my password without entering my current password.

Is there a way to recover this data? Again 1. Made an account with password- saved with firefox 2. Tried logging in, entered wrong pass , pop-Up showed 'update password' fast, I clicked enter 3. Now my password is gone.

Hope someone can help me Thanks

Hi,

As the title says, Firefox throws "We can’t connect to the server at m.imdb.com." error every time I try to open a page while everything else works like Chrome, Edge and when I ping via command prompt I get replies and other applications. (Win 10 64-bit with latest Firefox)

I think it's a system-wide problem but I can't figure out where. I was under the impression that it's a DNS problem but it doesn't even open IP addresses like 192.168.1.1 and it doesn't open instantly, no matter it's Google.com or my router IP, instant error message.

I tried everything I could find which are:

  • Refresh, clean re-install with deleting profile directory
  • clearing cache and data
  • Toggling these in about:config: network.http.http3.enabled, network.dns.disableIPv6, network.dns.disablePrefetch
  • Enabling/disabling my adapter
  • Running a couple commands:
   ipconfig /flushdns
   ipconfig /registerdns
   ipconfig /release
   ipconfig /renew

   netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
   netsh winsock reset catalog
   netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
   netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
  • Setting proxy to None
  • Restarting with Troubleshoot Mode (add-ons disabled)
  • Removing Firefox entry from Windows Firewall. (I haven't installed any Firewall and Anti-Virus)
  • WIndows's Network Reset
  • Rebooting machine and router

I'm sure there are more, these are all I can remember now.

This happened some months ago but can't seem to remember how I fixed it.

The only way it opens sites is with a VPN that sets a system proxy and setting Firefox's proxy to "Use System Proxy Settings".

Cheers

Hey people!

Stuck with an issue. Need your help. Tried all the documented troubleshoot options - like refreshing, disabling hardware acceleration, Recommended Performance, troubleshoot mode, etc.

New installation. Worked fine. Logged into Firefox Account for Sync. Since then, High CPU usage even with no tabs open. No clue why.

This is the profiler report: https://share.firefox.dev/3Khzq1C

Still stuck on 35%-50%-60% CPU usage with just one tab. And just a new blank tab!

The profiler report, if can be decoded in laymen terms, as to what activity is causing so much CPU usage, will be of immense help.

Healthcare website "Sign In" option is stuck at loading

As of April 5, 2023, I have not been able to access my healthcare account on Kaiser Permanente through my PC. The only change I remembered doing was installing the add-on "Dark Reader" the previous night. Then on April 5, 2023 when I tried to sign on to KP by clicking the "Sign In" hyperlink on the home page, the sign in prompt or web script/page never loads; it just gets stuck with the "Loading" text and spinning wheel in the middle of the screen "https://healthy.kaiserpermanente.org/consumer-sign-on".

I found a similar issue on Mozilla Support and followed many of the troubleshooting guides and solutions, but to no avail. Here are the things I did per this link "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1199184" and other guides:

   -Updated video card
   -Fire Fox Safe mode
   -Disabled, removed add-on extensions, disabled hardware acceleration, disabled java script, default themes
   -Restored Fire Fox
   -Disabled VPN

I accessed the same healthcare website on Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge on the same PC, and it successfully loaded the "Sign In" screen. I also logged into two additional laptops and installed Fire Fox brand new got the same negative results.

I was able to successfully get to the "sign in" page using IOS (iphone) Fire Fox app. So, at this point I figured it might just be a Windows Fire Fox problem for this specific website.

Please see if you can also replicate this issue, or offer any other solution ideas. I've attached two pictures; one is the stuck on loading, and the other is the sign in page that should have loaded. Thanks.
