I'm porting a chrome extension to firefox: it clearly loads on the page as I see some of it working. But other things are not happening. There are no errors in either the page or the background page. So I wanted to set a breakpoint in my content page, and I followed the instruction on this page: https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-content-scripts Which clearly shows extensions icons in the Sources/Main Thread.

But for me, there are none. The first screenshot is from the page where the extension is loaded no extension is listed, the second is from the background page for the temporary extension.

Hello, I somewhat recently noticed (maybe about a month ago) that my overflow menu disappeared and an "Extensions" menu appeared in its place.

I've already created a new profile and switched to it, with no success and I'm not sure what else to try or why it went away to begin with (and why this Extensions menu is now here and won't go away).

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hello,

Firefox quit and I restarted the application with all previous browsing tabs. Unfortunately, for some reason, all of my bookmarks (50+) are gone and I cannot find a way to get them back. I do not think I am usually signed into a Firefox account.

Please any help would be much appreciated. I do not recall all the things I've bookmarked.

Our company has been usingLeather wallet for men for 1 years now. A user of ours complained today that your website is quite slow and does not open properly in Firefox. As a result, I checked the site in Firefox and found the same issue. Even though the website is fully optimized and properly working with fast loading speed in Chrome. Does it need to be optimized separately for Firefox?

The entire Firefox UI freezes frequently after updating to 107. The freezes occur while navigating to a page or shortly after (e.g. clicking a link or entering a search term into the search bar). The freezes last for about 2 to 10 seconds. During the freeze the entire UI is unresponsive and does not respond to any mouse or keyboard input. However, animations like the page loading spinner where the favicon is on the tab continue to move.

On certain websites I am getting scrambled text, mostly in headings and titles, not so much in body text. I have followed several tips from other posts like mine, i.e., installed Open Sans font, but that did not do it. I turned off hardware acceleration, and cleared the cache. The only thing that did work was to start Firefox in troubleshooting mode. I only have two add-ons running, Short URL and Dashlane, I doubt they're responsible for this. Any other ideas?

I upgraded to Firefox 107.0 (64 bit). Now it won't access my e-mail account. When I try to add my account, it recognizes it, but says I can't add it because it because "in-coming server already exists." But it doesn't show up; I only see "local folders". iMac from 2009 running 10.13. If the latest Thunderbird doesn't work on this antique, can I un-install it?

My issue mirrors this thread, where the user ultimately got no resolution.

Protonmail has changed from mail.protonmail.com to mail.protonmail.me. I have updated my bookmarks and removed mail.protonmail.com from my history, but the .com domain is still the suggestion when I start typing "mail". I have tried shift+delete, tried deleting the individual entries of "mail.protonmail.com" from my history, but the behaviour has not changed.

"Forget about this site" does not solve the root issue because I do not want to clear all my cookies and history for the site. Deprecated sites aren't the only example where this would come up – imagine having to delete your entire stackoverflow.com history just to change your default suggestion to some oft-used resource like store.mycompany.com.

Thanks

A major reason I got Firefox was the ability to screenshot from shows that I streamed on the laptop. Recently I tried taking a screenshot and got a black and grey box indicating that it was blocked from capturing. Is this a Firefox issue that can be fixed with an extension or has Netflix updated the extend of blocking any form of capturing their shows once more?

So, after years of higher-than-normal security in Firefox (64-bit, Win 7) and accompanying problems in loading some pages, I decided to refresh (hoping to reset and have most/all pages load and display fully).

Well, tried refreshing and didn't see the bookmarks saved. Read about "Old Firefox Data" folder and thought I could retrieve anything I needed later. Deleting and reinstalling Firefox has resulted in the "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." windowed message.

Repeated uninstalls and reinstalls failed. Tried copying the "ng0ledtz.default-##########" from the "Old Firefox Data" folder into the C:\Users\username\Appdata\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles folder with no success.

Please help.

Deleted secondary email cannot be reused for a new account; Mozilla still remembers

Hi, here is my situation.

1. I made a firefox account with a (primary) email, e.g. email1@example.com. 2. I followed the instructions here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts to change my primary email. So now I have - primary: email2@example.com, secondary: email1@example.com 3. I delete my secondary email (email1@example.com)

I want to make a new firefox account with email1@example.com. But when I enter it https://accounts.firefox.com/ firefox wants me to log on. (And if I put in the password to the account it was originally tied to, it says to log in with the primary email.)

The behaviour I expect, especially for firefox which advertises itself on (among other things) privacy, is that if I "delete" something from my account, it is actually gone. But clearly, firefox is still keeping track of email1@example.com

There are other users who tried this in the past but not given a solution: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1393844 - says to disable sync. I signed out of all devices - did not change anything. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356551 - no responses - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344201 - says to delete firefox profile. email1@example.com still being remembered by firefox (not that I really expected deleting a local profile to affect firefox's servers). - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1365073 - suggests deleting the firefox account completely. However, as the original poster of that question mentions, that would risk locking out both email1@example.com and email2@example.com , at least unless a firefox developer confirms that it would actually delete the data. - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1329144 - mentions that from a GitHub discussion, "a primary email that has been replaced with a new email is Not released for re-use"

I could not find that GitHub discussion mentioned, but assuming it is true, I'm wondering if there's a way/where I can make a request to the corresponding developers to implement truly deleting user data (when requested by the user)?

Thank you!

A week or two ago I was surprised when opening Firefox it asked if I wanted it to be my default browser as it already was default. I said okay and it opened but none of my saved passwords available nor were my bookmarks. I noticed that there were TWO Firefox icons on the quick start bar on my 2 month old Windows 11 laptop. I clicked the other icon, that opened and my bookmarks & passwords were there. I clicked Help -> About Firefox and both are the same version. I looked at Windows Apps and there's only one Firefox showing there. I don't know how to remove the second instance. I attached a screen shot showing two icons on the quick start bar, newly installed Firefox behind original installed version asking to become default browser.
