Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Hi,

Problem as described in the title. I've read some similar questions and answers, but nothing ever helped.

I already tried the following steps (none of them helped): - Checking for updates - Toggling DRM on/off - Uninstall Firefox completely (delete profiles, too and so on) - Changing some DRM or Plugin related config in about:config like media.peerconnection.video.h264 (and of course reverting it after that) - Looking for XHR requests when toggling DRM on/off or visting a site with DRM content. I couldn't figure out what I'm actually looking for, though... - Switching off Firewall/Antivirus or the TLS filtering (Eset) for a moment - Looking for suspicious requests in some router protocols or dashboards or whatever

Thanks in advance!

I want to use a local html file as my new tab page. Currently there is no easy way to do this as far as I can tell.

Firefox at some point has removed the in-built option to set the new tab as a local file. Setting the home page as a local file is possible. But setting the new tab as either home (note, not 'Firefox Home') or explicitly the local file is not an option (see attached image).

Previous forum posts point toward New Tab Override extension. However, in recent releases, add-ons cannot offer a work around as Firefox no longer allows add-ons to access local files. In the image attached, New Tab Override extension shows that it cannot use a local file as the new tab. It can however take a file and store it somewhere it has control over. This means every time I edit the local file, I need to manually re-upload this to the extension in each instance of Firefox. It is no longer a good option.

I am sure I used this feature not too long ago and it feels like a very simple thing. I am sure I must have missed some setting or option. Any help achieving this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I have a website on Wordpress that uses google fonts (called via css). The fonts have always worked perfectly up until very recently when I noticed they started rendering improperly. I checked other browsers and found that the fonts render fine in Chrome but not in Firefox or the Firefox-based Pale Moon browser.

I've included screen shots from Firefox 80.0.1 (my default) and Chrome. The Firefox screen can be differentiated by the "Edit this post" link.

The most confounding aspect, to me, is that this is a recent development as they used to render in all browsers without issue. Would anyone have any insight into what may be causing this?

This is driving me nuts. All of a sudden, I can't search for anything using Google without being asked for verification. You might well have seen this page before:

'I'm not a robot' check box

Our systems have detected unusual traffic from your computer network. This page checks to see if it's really you sending the requests, and not a robot. Why did this happen?'

Which leads to the inevitable Select All Images With Traffic Lights etc pop ups. This is ONLY happening on Firefox, Chrome allows me to search on Google and Chrome is what I'll be using from now on if this doesn't get fixed.

OneTab has not be repopulating with all of my saved websites lately (last 5-6 days). It has eventually come back but today, its not happening. I have a tab that is my OneTab tab that has my saved websites in it. That tab exists still but it is empty. None of my saved websites are there. Also, the OneTab icon has disappeared. There is a space where it used to be and if I click on that space it goes to the description of OneTab so it is still (sort of) there, but... How do I get OneTab to work again. I don't want to lose the list of websites I saved. Thanks.

Very often I need to delete cookies from web sites so the sites won't remember me. The cookies in private tabs never show up in "Privacy & Security / Cookies and Site Data" (so I can't delete them from there), and they don't go away when I close the tabs or windows. It seems that I can only get rid of them by shutting down Firefox - a horrible solution when I have many other tabs and windows open.

I can't believe that no way exists to delete cookies (and local storage) in private windows and tabs. Does anyone know some way to do that?

Why Am I Unable to Make Calls on Computer From Google Hangouts in Firefox 78.0.1?

I'm having a problem making outgoing phone calls from Google Hangouts from my Firefox 78.0.1 browser on my Mac running OS 10.13.6 High Sierra. Can anyone tell me what to do to get this working? Every once in a while it works, but most of the time it will not. I have the same issue when I try doing it via Chat out of my Gmail account.

What happens is that when I execute to dial the number, the dialer pops up and instantly closes, and the call does not go through. That dialer will not stay open, and it must forthe call to work. This happens whether I try to use it online from https://hangouts.google.com/ or out of a Gmail e-mail account via Google Chat, which is included in the e-mail account.

I prefer to use Firefox rather than Google Chrome. But in testing, I find I can make outgoing calls from Chrome.

Once in a while, this works. In my Google search, I did find one assertion that it no longer will work out of Firefox because Firefox has stopped supporting plug ins (I had no idea -- then Flash also should not work, but it does, I can watch flash videos, so I'm doubtful plugin support is the issue).

Yet, I do find that Firefox actually offers a Google Hangouts add on! I don't see how that could be if it can't be supported for lack of a plugin. I installed that, closed and reopened Firefox, and tried to dial out of it. Same problem, dialer flashed open and closed, it did not dial out.

Again, I note, sometimes, rarely it seems, it will work. It should not do even that if it requires a plugin that is not there. I didn't see anything in settings that I would expect could be related.

I also note, I have tested it on a Windows 10 laptop, again out of the current Firefox, and same issue. So it doesn't appear the problem is necessarily linked to my Mac, its linked to Firefox. I suspect Firefox will have to do something to be compatible with Google Hangouts and Google Chat.

Hello


When it comes to add-ons, then I add three of four at once or the same purpose, I try them all out, decide if I want to keep any of them, and then remove the ones I see that do not serve my target. All normal.


I know that it requires permission in order to have an add-on show in Private Browsing, that's done.

Now I had 8 add-ons on the toolbar, I disabled two or three of them so I can try two new ones. I did not like the new ones, so I just enabled the ones I had disabled, which where previously showing in the toolbar, all of this in Private Browsing having the permission of showing them.


As I enabled the add-ons again, they are not showing anymore in the toolbar..!!

Okay, I removed them and re-added them..not showing. I also did: not allow in Private Mode, then re-allowed..not showing. I simply restarted the browser in both normal and Private Mode, and yet not showing.. I also restarted my pc, and retried all previous steps again

  • This mainly happened as I removed the extension from toolbar, then added it again.

Still also 90% of the time, just disable then enable again, and only a few are showing again. Either when disabled then re-enabled or when removed then re-added*


So, what to do ?
