I've gone down a rabbit hole of authentication in regards to Sync with Firefox. I'm wondering if I can regenerate a recovery key by removing the recovery key from my account and then choosing to re-enable a recovery key on my account? I do have the password for my primary email on my account, but I can't find the recovery key value for it.

I also have a secondary email on my account that I don't have a password for, and need to reset a password for it, but one problem at a time...

Hello,

I have a firefox Account "accountA" which has the primary eMail-Address "mailA". I had an other Account "accountB" with primary eMail-Address "mailB" and secondary eMail-Address "mailC". Sadly I lost access to "accountB" and it's primary Mail-Address "mailB" (which is ok) but want to change the Mail from "accountA" to "mailC".

However, this is not possible since "mailC" is locked to "accountB" which I can no longer access (since I need the primary Mail Address. This meens I can never again use "mailC" for my Firefox account, which is now my primary Mail-Address. Is there should be a way to disconnect a Mail-Address from an account, if one has ownership of this Mail-Address?

I recently installed new pc with fresh Firefox Developer Edition. Then I transfered the profile folder from old pc to the new pc. All bookmarks, addons, etc is there. Just the XULRunner popup appears only on the new pc. I uninstalled firefox on the new pc again and reinstalled it with profile cleaning. After profile cleaning firefox got faster and addons got removed. But the XULRunner popup keeps appearing. When I go to taskscheduler and trigger the "Firefox Developer Edition Background Update CA9422711AE1A81C" again, the XULRunner popup appears. Removing this taskscheduler and Firefox keeps readding it and the XULRunner popup are back. Any idea how I can get rid of the XULRunner popup?

I am using Firefox 107.0.1 on a Windows 10 machine. And, I am not able to login to the SSA website (US) using Firefox. I reviewed the answers in the post (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354403) and tried several of the possible solutions (safe mode, rename/delete profile, reboot computer, etc) without any luck. I've attached a screenshot of the error when trying to login using Firefox.

Strangely, I've used Firefox exclusively to login (latest, maybe 6 months ago) before with no problem. It appears it is only when I currently am using Firefox. This is because I am able to use MS Edge without a problem.

Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you, Chris

Normally I use side-berry to hold all of my tabs - the panel normally collapses and hides to the left of the screen - showing just the favicons of the website.

After the most recent firefox update 107.0 (20221110173214) there is now a large bar that i can't remove!

I have a CSS file for appearance, which i have included below.

any idea how to shrink this dead zone? I would really like to keep using my fun tabs.

Hello, I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 and have the Firefox (107.0 64bit) installed as a snap.

The drag and selecting text and even dragging objects on any websites doesn't work.

  • I select text on the website by pressing down and starting to drag the text doesn't select when I leave the hold the entire block gets highlighted
  • I use Excalidraw, the pencil tool drag and any object size change while drag doesn't work
  • Desmos I can't drag the points on the graph
  • The pointer just disappears on videos (not just YouTube) and isn't visible until I pause the video

Hi, I planned to block my users from installing extensions/add-ons. I found an article that might be the answer (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1308646). I tried to create a simple policy (below), but somehow it does not work (I can still install any add-on/extension). What is wrong with my script? I'm using Firefox ESR 78.11.0 (64-bit) by the way.

My "policies.json" looks like this:

{

"policies": {
  "ExtensionSettings": {
    "*": {
      "blocked_install_message": "Blocked!",
      "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/"],

Reporting this issue here cause i can't find if there's an actual bug report system. This issue seems to only be on firefox, I've tried chrome to see if it does it there and it's all fine. The issue is when you have the better TTV addon you can see custom emotes on twitch and some emotes are animated, the animated emotes sometimes freeze for a split second and lags the chat for the same time. I've disabled all addons on firefox except better TTV to see if other things are causing it, still does it. Made sure to test this on chrome as well with just the one addon.

Requesting help to remove the "Your browser is being managed by your organization." message in Firefox settings. I've tried the solutions found in help about the ImportEnterpriseRoots certificates settings in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies but there is no Firefox folder there. I searched all through the registry and did not find that specific entry. In Firefox about:settings, I have the certificates policy ImportEnterpriseRoots set to True but as I said, it is not in my registry on Windows 10. I tried Refresh Firefox and that also did not help. I have uBlock Origin Extension that may be doing this but I don't know where if it is. I tried disabling uBlock and it did not remove the issue. Any other suggestions?

Is there anyway to make a Hotkey for our Autoplay function, instead of having to go into Settings, each time we need the function?

In my experience, I have it set to Block both Video and Sound, but this blocks simple pronunciations, in Search or Translations. I hope there some way, a command, a mod or a setting allowing a Hotkey or Icon for Fast Disable/Enable.

Thanks for all your work and making the internet safer for everyone.
