Hi, I deleted my "save bookmark" little star (that turns blue) in the URL bar. I have tried various options to restore it, but cannot find it anywhere. I have tried the advice to go to "customize" and drag and drop the option, but the option does not exist in there (as per this question posted about 5 years ago)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1076141

Also watched this video, but again, the star he sees present in the customize options, does not exist for me. Perhaps it does not exist anymore at all in newer versions of Firefox. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtsMaYzxPq0

How do I restore the star?

As an aside, I really wish that, when yo click on the star button, it wouldn't come up with a tiny "keyhole" size window in which to save my bookmarks, insert tag/search words for future searches etc. I have a huge range of saved web pages, and I rely heavily on being able to search my library of bookmarks using these key search words. It would be best if the full blown Bookmark window popped up whenever you saved a bookmark, and you could put in all your search words/phrases etc. A Description entry point would be useful too, eg "Aunt Sally might like these flowers for her birthday, I was thinking of the blue ones". Just some feedback on an otherwise really solid browser, thank you.

Once again my account is locked on one of my computers. It says the email was returned but there was no email sent to the address. Oddly, the account is locked on one machine, the one that has been logged on the longest, but my other three machines have no trouble connecting and syncing. This seems to have happened after firefox updated itself (even though I had it set not to. It also removed all the settings I had spent a considerable amount of time customizing)

On Ubuntu, FFDE can be configured to

1. Auto-update - but it just displays a message saying that it cannot update

2. Download updates and request permission to install them - all it does is display a message saying a new update is available

I think this all stems from the fact that FFDE at present has to be manually installed on Ubuntu. Why this is so, I cannot fathom - maybe someone here has an answer to why open sourced op system users are inconvenienced by Firefox.

It's feasible to script an update procedure to Ubuntu for FFDE. But this will not stop the annoying (every 2 hours) pop-ups about new updates being available - even when there is no new update there . . .

Maybe FFDE could simply stop automatic update reminders altogether. Users can decide (or script) for themselves if they want to update.

deets: v87 via flatpak on debian(buster)

No matter where I save a file the lastdir is always "/run/user/1000/doc/*some random folder name, that changes each time*".

manually changing browser.download.lastDir causes the next attempt to save to go to the desired folder, but a second attempt reverts to /run/user/1000/doc/abcd123.

Has anyone any idea whats going on?

Hello,

I used my firefox account to restore my browsing history after I switched to a new hard drive. I compared the contents of places.sqlite from before and after the switch. (I can do this because I made a backup of the old places.sqlite.) And I noticed that many entries of moz_historyvisits are missing in the new database. I made a graph about this, in which I am using pythons sqlite3 library to inspect the databases moz_historyvisits.visit_date column. For every visit_date I checked if it is still present in the new database or if it got lost. The pattern seems highly irregular.

Does firefox intend to maintain a complete history? By which criteria did individual history entries get lost? Is there a way to restore a complete version of my browser history from my account?

Any help is appreciated.

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

I believe everyone has a right to choose the browser and operating system they use. I choose to use Firefox because I care about my privacy, and because of features like multi-account containers - as a software developer these are non-negotiable. I choose to use Linux for similar reasons, and many Linux distributions come with Firefox preinstalled as a default browser. In light of recent changes to Google's data collection through Chrome, I am more than ever committed to using Firefox as my only browser.

However over the last year or so, I have noticed an increasing number of websites or features on websites have stopped working in Firefox on Linux, forcing me to use Chrome against my wishes. Examples include the entirety of the Australian government's MyGov website; the phone call feature in Slack; and Google Meet meetings (no audio). I know people who use Firefox on other operating systems and they have not had these problems, so I can only assume that the issue is specific to Firefox on Linux.

I am not trying to suggest that Mozilla is responsible for this in any way - if Google or Slack or the government refuse to support Firefox on Linux, that's their responsibility, not Mozilla's. However, I am not convinced that the lack of support is intentional, or that it isn't a quirk of the particular Linux distribution I use or the version of Firefox included in the package manager. Any advice would be appreciated.

My Firefox version is 84.0.1, and my Linux distribution is KDE Neon User Edition 5.21 which uses Ubuntu 20.04 under the hood.

Default theme is used.


According to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8k3sq4/firefox_updated_to_6001_and_the_search_box_is_no/ there's something wrong with userchrome.css in the profile but that file should be patched if that's the case.

Why this hasn't been patched since it's introduction in version 60 is beyond me.

I use Firefox 87 on a number of notebooks duel booting various distros of linux (Mint, Manjaro, and MX Linux) and Windows 10, as well as a desktop running Windows 10.

On the notebooks Firefox is set to always use private browsing mode in both linux and Windows. On the desktop machine it isn't, but I always have private windows open. On the desktop version of Firefox private windows have the purple circle with a mask icon to show they are private. On the machines that are set to always use private mode Firefox never shows that icon, so I have to go on faith that they are private. Is there a reason always private doesn't also have the private icon?

Also, on the machines where Firefox is launched in always private mode, it always open 2 separate windows. This is a consistent thing when in always private mode.

When I type in ANY URL, I want exactly that to be loaded. And not anything else.

When I type in mozilla.rog into the address bar, I want firefox to fetch the page mozilla.rog. I want firefox to try, and if it does not exist, I demand to be notified that it does not exist. With an error message. URL not found. Error 404.

But instead, Firefox silently changes mozilla.rog to mozilla.org (and probably any page e.g. from .rog to .org, and from .ocm to .com , and the like) without my permission, and loads this other page I did not type in.

I do NOT and NEVER allow ANY program to alter my commands without notifying me.

so... which about:config setting disables this autocorrection-behavior?
