If I visit a page that I have previously visited some time ago, it is — as expected — brought to the top of my History (when sorted by "last visited").

However, if I revisit or refresh a page that I had visited only a short time before — say, ten minutes ago — it is not brought to the top of the list.

Presumably there is some parameter that specifies the duration within which Firefox will not update the last visited tag for a previously visited page.

How can I set that parameter to zero so that Firefox will always bring a refreshed page to the top of my History?

Thanks. This has been bothering me for some time.

Since I help a lot of folks to set up Firefox, and customize the settings a lot, it would be great to have a way to export and import those custom settings. Sync is no help as they don't have an account/setup to sync the settings FROM. But since sync CAN update the settings, how about giving us a separate way to do the same via an exported file????

Please? Sure would make my time to install and set up a LOT easier.

Hello!

I was wondering if there are any plans to add a feature like this (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/addon/auto-tab-discard/) to Firefox? I tend to keep lots of tabs open at once, and I'd love to be able to pause unused tabs without closing them. But I'd prefer to avoid giving an add-on access to all of my data. So I keep hoping that this type of feature will get incorporated into Firefox. Do you know if there are any plans like this?

Thanks so much in advance and for the work that you're doing!

Chrome has a better printing feature than Firefox.

it's impossible to print shipping lable through Firefox, no matter how you set, it keep on sepate into two pages lable.

I have to switch into Chrome everytime I print shipping lables of my store orders.

I have screenshot to demonstrate the trouble caused by Firefox.

My question is why Firefox can't make the printing feature same like Chrome? if you can't make the same, how to print small lables(like 10cm by 15cm) though Firefox?

Would you find the suggested idea below useful?

Suggestion: When multiple tabs are open in a desktop computer and you switch between them using the cursor, it would be handy if you could use a second cursor-click on the same tab, like this: current way: when tab A is open, and you switch to B, you click the B (the first click), and when you switch back to A, you click the A (the second click); suggested way: when tab A is open and you switch to B, you click the B (the first click), and when you switch back to A, you click the B (instead of the A)(the second click). So in the suggested way there's no hopping with the cursor (its movement reduces at least by 50%) and it is fast and intuitive in situations where you only glance the B tab, or both A and B: BAB; BABA; etc, but it can always be used. I'm not aware if there would be obstacles to this whole idea. The above is just an example of two tabs, but this could be applied to as many as are needed.

I really love the new picture-in-picture option. It's especially helpful when I only have one monitor. There are a couple of rough-edges I'd like to see tweaked.

1. I resize these windows all the time to put them where they'll fit when I'm doing something else, and it can finicky to resize the window quickly. It would be helpful if the areas you can grab the edges and corners of were exaggerated. For example, if when the user's mouse is near an edge or corner of the picture-in-picture window a handle pops-up around the given area that's larger than the 1pixal-ish default handle area. I've seen similar functionality in the art program GIMP for selection boxes.

2. The way the window acts when being resized isn't very intuitive. The corners work as expected, but since the corner areas are so small I often grab the sides and that can get frustrating. I now know that when grabbing the Bight and Bottom sides of the window the Top-Left corner is anchored while resizing. Similarly, when grabbing the Left and Top sides of the window the Bottom-Right corner is anchored. That seems pretty intuitive when I type it out, what's the issue? Well, the problem comes when you are grabbing the window near the corners. If for example, I'm trying to grab the window by the Bottom-Left corner and miss (which I've done plenty) and grab the Bottom of the window. Now when I resize the window is anchored in the Top-Left instead of the Top-Right, which is the opposite of what I wanted and leads to some confusion and repositioning. What I would suggest, separate from the #1 solution, would be to break the sides of the window into three areas: Near-corner 1, Center, and Near-corner 2. When grabbing the window on the edge in one of the Near-corner areas, anchor the window at the opposite corner. When grabbing by the center of an edge anchor the window by the opposite center.

Thank you for reading my long suggestion. I hope you don't find this to be a negative interaction. I truly enjoy Firefox, and I've very excited about your new Picture-in-picture feature. I hope you understand that this level of nit-picking can only come from a place of love!

P.S: I'm very pleased to say that I did not include a third issue I had with the Spacebar Play/Pause functionality not working unless the Play button was the last object clicked on the window, because in the latest update it was gone! I want to thank whomever worked on that and let them know, someone did notice, and they appreciate it! <3 <3

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Hello,

I organise a lot of bookmarks through hierarchy folders. Within these folders there are several sub-folders with the same name, e.g. there are main folders named after the main theme and beyond that (sometimes also 2 or 3 levels beyond) there are folders named after a country.

Folder Theme A

  • Folder Country A
  • Folder Country B

Folder Theme B

  • Bulleted list item Folder Theme B part 1
  + Folder Country A
  + Folder Country B
  • Bulleted list item Folder Theme B part 2
  + Folder Country A
  + Folder Country B

....

I have remarked now several times that the bookmarks of the Countries are moved or gathered in different folders. First I thought I moved a folder by accident, but it happened now serveral times and today it was clearly not made by me. Today Firefox now gathered the content of several Folder Country A of different Theme-Folders together in one. But it gathered only the content, the folder itself were moved to complete different Theme Folder where I found 3 sub folders now of Country A (but empty as the content was gathered.

To make it better understandable:

Folder Theme A

  • Folder Country A
  • Folder Country A (from Theme B) - empty
  • Folder Country A (from Theme C) - empty
  • Folder Country A (from Theme D) - empty

Folder Theme B

  • Folder Country A (contained the content of the Folder Country A folder of Theme A, B, C and D)

But this is only one example, I had also once found only one further subfolder in a complete different folder. I don't see a concrete process how these issue is occurring.

Obviously there is a mix-up due to the same name of the folders, there ar eno bookmarks missing. But to rename the folders is not really a solution for me, especially as these folders are not duplicate in the same level of folders. I am not sure but I am assuming that these mix-ups has something to do with the sync function I activated in Firefox now a while ago. There are currently 3 devices which are synchronised over my Firefox account (1 Win10 laptop, 1 Android mobile and 1 Android mobile). But I have nothing changed with my mobile e.g., I just add sometimes bookmarks over the mobile devices. The "wrong" placements are also visible in the bookmark manager in Firefox on my mobile devices, so it is not only an issue with some settings as the bookmarks were really changed also over sync.

What can I do or is this a bug with the sync function?

I have two devices showing up under my synced devices. I would like to view the tabs of one on the other. In Sync Settings I have checked both "Bookmarks" and "Open Tabs" (I've done this on both devices, although imagine it's a setting at the account level). Nonetheless, when I view my synced tabs on either device there is nothing there. I know the sync is working to some degree, however, as I am able to send tabs and forth between the two devices.

Initially, my problem was that I could view the tabs of one computer on the other but not vice versa. However, after unsyncing/resyncing the devices and playing various other tricks in an effort to solve this issue, I have also lost that functionality (i.e., neither computer is now able to see the other's tabs.

Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you!

The Mozilla Answer page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders, provides some pretty good information about which files to recover, but, doesn't include the general population's need to recover their last sessions, so a mention on this same page would be extremely helpful. Next, I found the places.sqlite file will update automatically without shutting down Firefox (most likely when the computer is put to sleep and then awakened). A warning about this little known file updating would be helpful to those who learned about their lost history, but choose to wait until later, like recovering it prior to shutting down, but they will have lost the opportunity when the places.sqlite file self updates itself automatically (who knows exactly when or why) I'd like to see this important information placed your answer on this same (above) troubleshooting page, because when I loose history caused by a proper shut down, I'll need to your page infor to remind me what to be cautious about. And I don't believe you have created a back up file to places.sqlite to which I can recover and rename yet, because I believe the closest name to it has very little memory in it, but I could be wrong.
