Is there a way at all to recover lost Sync data. I was unaware that resetting my password completely deletes my log and all information and there was no indication or opt out option for that. I am using about Sync and I see when it was deleted but I am hoping there is some way to retrieve the information. It is a few months worth of it that I can not afford to lose. Thank you.

I've managed multiple profiles, and used the profile manager for years.

Usually, when I want to update/replace a session from one profile to another, these are the files I transfer.

When I launch the profile, it should open to the same tab as in the previous profile, and the tab count should be the same. That is, until today.

No matter what I try with the new profile, the same old session keeps coming up.

I have had PCs for years and have used Firefox. My PC died and will not boot. I have an image of my C:\ drive on a Passport disk. But the Mac will not read it. I installed Firefox on my new Mac and signed in had all of my bookmarks and passwords. Then there was a Firefox icon on the bottom strip and one on my screen. In the interim, I opened some new accounts and used a bunch of passwords. At the end of the day, I dragged the icon on the screen down to the row of icons at the lower screen. That wiped out my Firefox. I downloaded Firefox again and put in what I thought was the password and it said I had multiple accounts and if I changed the password it would erase all of my data. I need to find out how to get the right password so I preserve my data. The email account I used as the ID is coolsgirl@msn.com. I am 72 and I don't want to make a mistake that is irreversible. My sister said Macs were easier but I should have gotten a new PC. Live and learn. I don't know my Firefox email. Thank you, Phyllis

Like to be able speak words directly into search bar (and secondly into other text alphanumeric fields). Just like I do into iPhone. This would help me greatly since I'm not the best speller and I usually speak faster than I can type. I sure it would help others as well.

Since the FF update, when I get a popup alert in the lower left, I am unable to do anything else on the page until the alert disappears or I manually close it. After the alert popup is gone, everything it back to normal. This only started happening with the "new" FF.

The issue does not happen with Chrome.

Hi,

I noticed a problem on my MacBook Pro when Firefox is running. When I have 4 tabs opened on a precise streaming website, with the sound disabled on these 4 tabs, and I run other tab (like youtube) or other app (VLC, Music,...) with the sound enabled on it, I can ear some "pop" or "crackle" in the speakers.

I performed the same test with Safari and the problem don't appear.

Motherbaord, and speakers have been replace on my laptop by AppleCare. I think it's a software issue (maybe due to Firefox, maybe to macOs). I contacted Apple to explain my problem and ask them try to reproduce the issue, but they won't do until Mozilla confirm that the issue is not due to Firefox...

I did't find how to contact Firefox support Team, so I posted here...

Regards, Joe

Today, right-click menu options began appearing invisible. There was no issue yesterday and no changes were made to anything since then. The options can still be clicked on and work, but I cannot see the text. Right click menus continue to work normally everywhere outside of Firefox.

Just having upgraded to V89.0.1, I won't focus on how more difficult to see the separation of tabs, but instead: All my folders in bookmarks have turned clear and appear to be the basic default look. Specific sites under each folder, as well as the individual sites not in folders, have kept their (what used to be called) Favicons.

I see no customizing option for this. Can I at least give the top level folder a color, WITHOUT FANCY PROGRAMMING OR EDITING OF DEEP CONFIGURATION FILES, just by menu clicking?

I'll conclude by not asking why the Powers thought to remove such things. To me it makes it HARDER to find my way around Firefox and displayed page.

I've been using Office 365 subscription through work on my Mac with Firefox for years. Today, it stopped working. It was actually quite scary: when I logged in, all my information was gone (all email, etc.). When I check Microsoft, it states it supports Firefox for all major OSes except Mac. I can still access Office 365 on Chrome, but I don't like being forced to use a browser I don't like from a company I don't like. IT help through my work has been useless. They just said use Edge.

Does anybody know the status of this change? Is it intended to be permanent or is it a temporary issue? If it's a permanent choice to exclude Mac users from using Firefox, what is the best way to signal protest against this and maybe get Microsoft to rethink making a major, popular browser useless? I would like to support Firefox/Mozilla in pushing back against this potentially significant move to limit their usability. Thanks.

Dear All,

I urgently need to retrieve various documents saved in the past as web pages with the Scrapbook extension which I found very easy and useful. Some of them date back to 2008. When I try to reactivate ScrapBook in "Add-ons and Themes" I find that ScrapBook is disabled and that there is no switch to re-enable it. i have access to the ScrapBook folder in the /home/.../.mozilla/firefox/********.default folder. Indeed I find in that folder a lot of data folders titled with the date and time of creation but it is very tedious to search. How can I reactivate ScrapBook or is there another way to easily access all these pages saved with ScrapBook? Firefox extension or standalone software?

Thanks in advance to all!

Hello :)

OS: Windows 10 1809 LTSC Firefox Version: 89

Firefox is behind a proxy and I have problems with applications like BigBlueButton and DFNConf(Pexip), which using WebRTC.

about:webrtc shows problems with ICE. It seems Firefox doesn't use the proxy config properly on this step. The Proxy is set via GPO.

Testing with other browsers show that there is no issue with webRTC. Only firefox doesn't work.

Is this still a bug or should I try some other configurations?

I don't know if this has just become a problem with the most recent release of FF or was a problem before, as I only recently discovered the problem, but I did discover that my cookies were not deleting when using the shortcut Ctrl+Shft+Del -- and yes, making sure 'Cookies' and 'Everything' were selected. I can still manually delete the cookies by going to 'Settings > Privacy & Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Data' (which is how I discovered they were not deleting using the shortcut; I just happened to check here), but I would like to be able to use the shortcut. Any ideas on why this isn't working? Thank you for any solutions/suggestions.

Don't know where to write it, but I hope some developers of Firefox will read it...

After years of UI / UX Design studies Firefox recently "updated" the bookmarks menu ignoring everything ever established in UI / UX design rules!

1. When you right click on a bookmark you suddenly find the bookmark options split into two segments? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. Why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"? Such things cause all this annoying obstacles which no one needs when working with a program. Who ever thought this might be a great intervention should take the step back.

Same with folders. 1. When you right click on a bookmark folder you suddenly find the bookmark folder options split into two segments, too? Editing bookmarks or creating new one should be in one segment as everything is related to bookmarks.

2. And again, why is it suddenly called "entfernen" in Germany, as everywhere, in every program, the function is called "löschen"?
