Hi I use my Firefox account on my personal computer and on my own computer on a server at work. Since my Firefox was updated to most recent version, I have not been able to save any passwords on Firefox on my server site. I tried adding a primary password using Firefox while on the local station, but it is not functional. Every time I open any new page to where I have an account, I have to reenter my Primary password before signing in to the site. I have since disabled this feature as it is not working for me. Firefox seems to be working fine on the local station at work and on my personal computer at home.

My Computer service tech for the server is unable to resolve this. I have also consulted a computer tech in the community who has not been able to solve it. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice. We have gone through a multitude of settings on the Firefox site. I am able to save the passwords without issue if I use Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

I am looking for someone who can give me guidance on what settings I many need to change. I simply want to be able to enter my user name and password for the common sites that I use, ask Firefox to store them so I do not have to retype them every time.

Thank you, Shelley B

fake "update available" for firefox

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

I have the option 'Show editor when saving' checked, so I'm getting the bookmark editor popup window when I want to save a bookmark .

However, more often than not, a bookmark is being saved without me clicking the Save button .

My understanding is that it's a feature of sorts, but it's driving me bonkers, and I just can't remember what I need to do to not save a bookmark - hit esc. , click the star button again, use the keyboard shortcut, or whatever it is . Nor do I care to be frank, I really just want Firefox to not save a bookmark without confirmation , which I thought would be the main point of having the optional editor window .

Is there any way to disable autosave for bookmarks completely ? Sorry about the rant, it's just so unintuitive and annoying, and I'm tired of cleaning out my bookmark folders all the time ...

Google Calendar and a few other websites do not render symbols correctly. Please see attached. What should be displayed instead of letters are symbols such as > or ^. I've tried updating FF (103.0.2), ran in Safe Mode, disabled extensions, and nothing has helped. I'd like to keep using FF instead of Safari (running MacOS Monterey 12.5.1), but this is annoying.

Any ideas?

Hello,

Whenever I use Firefox, I end up seeing popups (necessary for school) and would like to show them as tabs so I can merge them into other windows. I have tried the solutions given in: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1080255 and nothing seemed to work. Is there another way to make sure that popup windows cannot hide the toolbar and show tabs?

Firefox has worked fine on my WinX systems for years. Yesterday it downloaded a new version (103.0 64-bit) that totally destroyed the experience!

Everything I see now is GIANT SIZED compared to the rest of my desktop and to the old Firefox. I've looked for any relevant setting and I've tried the "Refresh" button with no help.

I want to go back to the previous version!

  3. 3) I followed the instructions and tried to imported the HTML file from the thumb drive into the newly installed Firefox on the new Windows 11 laptop.
  4. 4) I got the message "file is empty" when I pressed open so the import did not work as advertised. I looked at the HTML file on the thumb drive and all my bookmarks were there, so the file was not empty.
  5. 5) What do I do to get the newly installed Firefox on my Windows 11 laptop to read/recognized the HTML file I created and to successfully import my bookmarks?????

As the title says, I cannot get MP4 files to play in Firefox, which renders several websites unusable. These sites work in Edge just fine, but I cannot get them to work in my preferred browser. Everything is up to date, and I have all the codecs I could ever need installed, as well as the Windows N Media Feature Pack. The browser has been tested several times in troubleshooting mode, and I've even gone as far as running Windows in safe mode with networking to try to isolate the issue. I cannot get it to work at all. This is the 2nd device I've had this issue on, and it's driving me up a wall.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi all,

So I recently got a new laptop for work, so naturally installed the latest version of Firefox on it. I see in a previous version, they changed the way "Open file" works, so now instead of it downloading to your TEMP folder and opening the file and hiding where it is "saved", it now just SAVES the file to the Downloads folder and opens it.

This is a problem for me at work, as I essentially open 100s of files every day and my Downloads folder is just full of junk now that I would need to sort out from what is junk and what isn't. Is there a way to change this back to the way it was, or is there a way to make it so that when I tell Firefox to OPEN a file, that it saves it a different location from my default Downloads folder? This way I could simply schedule a task to auto delete files older than X days, without risking files that I actually want saved.

Thanks very much.

Hello !

I am using ff latest ver 103.0.1 on Windows-10-Enterprise-22H2-19045.1865-x64. When I go to drive.google.com/ it redirects me immediately to their support site displaying page : https://support.google.com/drive/answer/6283888?visit_id=##################-##########&p=unsupported_browser&rd=1

hash is a single decimal digit above.

On the support page, there is a button labeled "Update your browser". On clicking that ff opens another tab showing website : https://updatemybrowser.org/

This website says my ff version is 45. I wonder where did they get this number from .... !

So I installed a user agent editor extension ( https://mybrowseraddon.com/custom-useragent-string.html ).

Now updatemybrowser.org says I am using latest ff. But Google Drive still redirects me to their support site.

Same behaviour seen in ff safe mode when all extensions are disabled.

What do I do to access the Google Drive page?

Thank you.

When using Google Sheets in Firefox, it's impossible to access the Sheets menu shortcuts (e.g. typing Alt+D+R+S to open the advanced sorting dialog) because Firefox captures the Alt keystroke and doesn't pass it to the web app.

Of course, Chrome passes the Alt keystroke to Sheets just fine so the keyboard shortcuts work as expected. But I don't want to use Chrome or any other Chromium browsers. Has anyone found a workaround to this issue? (Hint: don't say use chrome)
