Firefox updated automatically to v.95.0 (64-bit), Windows 10, on December 8, 2021 at 1:09 PM.

Since the update, all my Bookmarks are missing. All attempts to restore them have failed (using the Menu->Bookmarks->Manage Bookmarks->Import and Backup->Restore option). My toolbar settings are: Bookmarks Toolbar->Always Show and Show Other Bookmarks.

This is a critical loss for both business and healthcare purposes. I would appreciate an immediate and viable solution.

The Primary Password option is great to have when you need it but I am looking to see if there is a way that it can autofill acct and password info while only restricting access to view or edit the credentials (and not prompt for the primary password on first use).

In other words, the primary password would only be requested if you get into Firefox security settings but would otherwise work on websites without prompting for the primary/master password.

I do realize that the current workflow is good in some cases but this need is to allow users to access to certain sites/accounts without also giving the permission to view or copy the login info.

Is this possible via about:config or some other way?

I searched this problem on your help desk and apparently has happened already with previous versions such as 74.0 etc. The thread for this problem do not apply to version 95.0 as General-Start up working are different. Can anybody cast a spell and solve this please? Thank you.

Hello. Firefox not allows me to add search engine to search bar only for some sites. For example: I can add search on YouTube, and it's show me green "+" on search bar. But I need to add this site: allegro.pl and the "+" button is unavailable. I remember I added it to search few versions ago (probably it was FF 78 ESR), but I don't remember how I do it. And I accidentally delete it from search engines. Could anyone help me with add it again? Regards.

I'm running a late 2017 MacBook Air with memory of 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Monterey 12.0.1 and using Firefox 95.0. I am having a continuing issue with a web site (E edition of The Fort Worth Star Telegram) that after opening a second page/window of a news article, that 2nd open page causes Firefox to stop responding. Clearing caches and or restarting computer does not help. Feedback to Star Telegram has yielded no solution.

Hello,

I did some changes to the browser according to a privacy guide: https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/

When I now watch a video, while the overlay is there, the over a third of the video height is full of green horizontal stripes.

I can't figure out which change to the browser leads to this.

Do you have any idea?

Currently using FF v94.0.1 64-bit (I usually lag an update or two behind to ensure stability -- my highest priority -- and avoid surprises.)


1) I notice that unless there are a sufficient number of tabs opened across a browser window as stretched to a given width, thus triggering the left-right ("<" , ">") tab-scroll arrows to appear, the TAB MENU itself (aka "List all tabs" button, a "v" down-arrow on the far right) is not present. Nor is there an equivalent way to initiate a tab search within the main MENU BAR (FILE, EDIT, VIEW, etc.) that I could find. This restricts access to the SEARCH TABS feature.

This "automatically keep-it-tidy feature" is not really an issue when only a single browser window is open. However, I have many windows (on different topics of interest), each with many tabs.

I can switch to another browser window that has enough open tabs to have triggered the TAB MENU, then search from there. Or I can use the address bar "%" method).

(Actually, I'm pleasantly surprised that Firefox, running on my older PC, is stable with hundreds of tabs open as accumulated over many months. Clearly I should change my habits!)


2) On your support page titled "Search open tabs in Firefox" at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-open-tabs-firefox , it describes (via examples) using the "List all tabs"/TAB MENU button to access the "Search Tabs" feature. It also outlines using the address bar "%" method.

Unless I misread the article, what it does not make clear, is that the "Search Tabs" feature works the same as "% xyz" in the address bar; whereas using "%xyz" (note the missing space) yields different results (apparently the same as "xyz %"; but "xyz%" yields nothing). Nor does it explain the reason for the different results or the importance/desirability/weirdness of using one method over the other -- it simply presents the examples. I believe this help page could use some expansion/clarification.


3) I noticed that when performing "search tabs" via either the address bar (using "%") or via the TAB MENU, the results do not include any open tabs using "containers" (apparently the same as any open tabs within "private" windows).

I am increasingly using the "container" features by opening then permanently assigning many "sensitive" web sites to one of the container categories. The increased security is a nice idea.

However, with many browser windows open, each with many tabs, this inability to search for and conveniently find open tabs is increasingly frustrating and is nudging me back towards NOT using containers.

Can't some solution be found to maintain the privacy between tabs (and perhaps even private windows) while permitting a tab search to work more thoroughly?


In summary, I simply want to be able to find ALL occurrences of any partial string of searched-for text within ALL tabs in either their title OR address, normal AND container tabs, and preferably in normal AND private windows.

At present I see only a list of 12 results and no means of listing more. Sometimes my "known" open (normal/non-container) tab is not present in that short list (perhaps a preference/sort order is needed for tab titles vs. addresses).

Why not a "List more results", or a selector button to scroll-list "10, 20, 40, 100, ALL", or a button to open and continue with a listing of ALL matching results in a separate pop-up window, etc?


Thanks for all your good and hard work!

I must log in to the WiFi network I use. When I start FireFox the first time, it brings up my login page, I click [Accept], and I'm online. After a while on, I get kicked off, and must log in again. (The non-internet, WiFi connection remains active; but I'm neither logged in nor online.) How do I re-initialize the automatic login function ("detectportal"?)?

Closing, and re-starting FireFox again doesn't work; it initially tries to go to my homepage instead... *but it can't*, because I'm not online. I can't go to the login page's displayed URL, for the same reason. I have to actually restart the computer, loosing whatever I'm doing, then start FireFox. Then, and only then, can I get it to go to the network login page so I can login and continue.

Is there a button, "about:thingie", or setting I can use to reinitialize the automatic login page search & display mechanism? Rebooting the whole computer is a xxxx.

For the past two weeks, I've noticed that embedded maps make my browser immediately crash. I initially thought it was a Firefox problem, but I have been having a similar issue with Safari. This does NOT happen on my iPhone using the same two browsers. This also does not seem to effect Google Maps or embedded Google Maps, but embedded maps from other services. Anyway, I'm posting here because Firefox conveniently provides crash data, I'm not sure what else the cause could be and I'm hoping someone can help.

Two websites this has been consistently happening with are The Empire State Trail bike path (https://empiretrail.ny.gov/) and a NYC vaccine finder website (https://vaccinefinder.nyc.gov/). Firefox immediately crashes, though with the EST website it seems to be tied to the pathway of the trail being drawn (crashing after I've zoomed in a few times and the path has to regenerate). Safari doesn't totally crash, but forces a site reload and after it fails a second time says it can't display the site.

Any ideas what the issue could be? I'm on the latest version of Catalina (10.15.7), Firefox and Safari and seem to have all security updates for all.

Here's a link to the latest crash data: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/1389c870-51cf-4790-b0a0-fd01f0211202
