Hi, as a user of Firefox from day1 I have hit my first problem so not bad going. Right, I have a win10 desktop(DT1) and 2 laptops (LP1 AND LP2). All win10 fully patched up &Firefox 84.02. This morning I noticed my network share from LP1 to DT1 wasnt working and found LP1 powered down. Powered it up & it looked to be completing a patch (KB4598242) so let it finish successfully and logged in. It wouldnt take the 2 master pw prompts although definitely typing them correctly. Poked around the forum that talks of key4.db, key3.db and logins.json. Only had key4db but had a loginsbackup.json. deleted logins.jason and renamed loginsbackup. reloaded. Same, so am stuck. Did notice as LP1 loaded after powering on that a Firefox update occurred. Could one have messed the other? Anyway these things seldom happen on their own so what went on yesterday. On LP2 I noticed that on each reboot I got 2 identical FFox windows. I tried refresh, uninstalling ffox & mainteneance service, same. So I searched for the word firefox and deleted everything I could find and reinstalled FFox. Same, so switched off & gave up. Perhaps I have sync between my devices, not sure. However I have never at any stage changed my master passwords which is the same on all 3 pc's. Any ideas? Shame to lose over 120 passwords if I have to somehow start over again by uninstalling FFox and reinstalling..that'll take ages. And of course the password prompt is coming up all the time whilst typing this. Help please

Hello everybody !

I want to restrict access to only one website on one computer.

For this, I use the add-on "Block Site", which works perfect !

But as it's quite easy to go to add-on tab and disable this add-on, how prevent this by locking access to add-on ??

Tried to search on the web, but nothing came up ....

Thanks in advance to all helpers !

Hello

I am a long-time user of firefox and so far I have not had a problem for which I would not find a solution on the Internet.

It’s about using firefox in the workplace. I do not have administrator privileges when using a computer.

In my work, I often have to download files from the official (closed intranet) page, which are either in pdf (individual documents) or zip format (larger files).

Lately, I have been downloading a zip file that firefox marks as a pdf and asking if I want to open or save it.

If I save it, it gets saved as pdf and than I have to rename it to zip to correctly open it.

Chrome, on the same workstation, and internet explorer for the file correctly determine that it is in zip format.

I have already refreshed firefox but the problem remains.

Thanks

When trying to install addons from Firefox addons management menu (tab 'about:addons'), they not downloads. and Firefox says 'addon can not be loaded because connection problem'.

When trying open 'https://addons.mozilla.org/ru/firefox/' have 'PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR'.

I am thinking the reason of this errors is blocking requests to 'addons.mozilla.org' by my internet provider (Beeline Kazakhstan). Because when I trying to connet to 'addons.mozilla.org' using VPN or proxy I have no problems described above.

I have no idea why this internet provider or goverment needs to block host 'addons.mozilla.org' (they love to block various website just fo fun). May you help me bypass this problem? May be you know the way how to install VPN addon offline for Mozilla Firefox whithout acces to addons webpage.

Sorry for my English and thank you for reading (:

Hello As others have said recently, Firefox has become unusually greedy in RAM!

I love Firefox and it's been my favorite browser for years and years. But there it became unmanageable for me!

I'm absolutely not going to spend money to add more RAM to my PC tower, which is only three years old, and otherwise performs perfectly well for my use with all my other apps. There is 8 GB of RAM in my PC, a fast model of RAM, very fast, and expensive. You have to stop, guys, and face the truth! There is a real problem and there is no point in denying it, and saying that it takes more than 8 GB on a PC at the end of 2020.

The CONCRETE result is that we are all going to change the browser we use, it's super sad, and it is happening NOW. I don't want to change, but I have no choice. It's kind of heartbreaking for me, believe me.

Attached is a sample of how web pages display. These can either initially display this way or, as in this example, the page opened correctly, I stepped away for a few minutes and when I viewed the page again it looked like the example. I can have a page open and it is displaying correctly, then open a new tab and go to a different site and the text will look like the example.

I have cleared the cache, dumped all the cookies. Restarting the browser (I do this many times a day) will fix the current page but eventually another page will display like this.

I running version 84.0.2 64bit on a Mac Pro Mojave. I don't have this problem with other browsers like Chrome or Safari. I never see it on my Windows 10 system.

Hi, I have a weird issue if I scroll with my mouse down a webpage I'll get these jagged horizontal lines in the middle of the screen but go away when I stop. Also, when I watch a video where a lot of moving is happening like if it's a hockey game the middle of the screen just that jagged line across in just the middle. What causes this and how do I get rid of it I don't notice on Internet Explorer browser and I've tried disabling hardware and stuff but doesn't work.

"Autofill logins and passwords". This works for a session of Firefox, but when I close it and start a new one, it does not retain the selection. Is there another setting somewhere that is undoing it?

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

I would very much like to adjust the text zoom of my (updated current firefox) browser (to 170%) and the normal zoom to something around 130-150%. That would allow me to read from distance and use the whole screen. However, firefox only allows "text-only" zoom OR "whole site" zoom (in "about:preferences"). Is there an addon or an "about:config" setting where I could globally adjust text zoom and website zoom to distinct values at once (without setting "website zoom" to 100% for example, when adjusting "text-only")

I would greatly appreciate a solution! Thanks, best regards Gregor

I tried downloading wondershare dvd maker and avg popped up saying it wasnt trusted. I tried leaving the alert but it wouldnt let me so i tried pressing alt f4. Alt f4 didnt work, so i chose deletion option. But it deleted my firefox browser. Naturally i had no idea what was happening when i tried clicking the firefox shortcut and it said the file didnt exist or had been moved or deleted. I checked my uninstall option on my computer and firefox wasnt even listed. I downloaded imyfoneanyrecover app after a quick google search but for some reason when i opened the app it couldnt go in window mode and half the page is off the screen and i dont know how to switch the app to window mode. I even tried downloading firefox again and it wouldnt install. I am really confused right now and i am afraid all my history, bookmarks, etc. Are gone forever. Is it avg or was the wondershare dvd maker a malware that did this? Please someone help me!
