When I open a new page on a site and the new page includes an ability to comment at the end of the article, Firefox automatically opens at that point. How do I stop this happening? I want the page to open at the top, please - as it always used to.

I have two windows of Firefox 94 for Linux next to each other, each with its own user profile. It would be very handy if I could drag and drop tabs and items in the bookmarks toolbar from one profile into the other. Apparently this does not work out for me. Am I missing some tip/trick?

It is possible to transfer tabs by drag and drop when both windows belong to the same user. Handy. Obviously the two windows share the same bookmarks toolbar, so the point of transferring makes no sense for the bookmark toolbar.

If that cross-profile transfer is not possible, it is definitely a feature request. This would help greatly in merging piecemeal the bookmarks of two users. Say, to separate private and work bookmarks from time to time.

Hi all

I would like some help if possible please. When I start Windows 10 on my laptop and I open Firefox I open two separate windows (personal and professional) and then I open a pre detirmined set of tabs in each window to start my day.

Is there a way I can press open Firefox and I can have 2 windows open with all my pre set tabs?

Is this possible? If not, how close can I come to this?

Thanks,

Hi!

When you open network tab on Firefox devtools there is request blocking option. The hint below text box says "Add URL patterns here to block matching requests" but there is no documentation how to write patterns. I tried to google it like 10 different ways and did not find any documentation.

Copy text from address bar (not the URL of the current page)

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354750

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

When I looked into why it was taking so long to backup my FF profile, I realized it was because their are over 21k files my backup software has to compare.

The majority of these are in the "Storage" folder -- apparently local/offline storage for various sites.

I've already moved the cache to a non-synced location using browser.cache.disk.parent_directory and would like to do the same with "Storage".

But I can't seem to find any info on what pref would allow me to do that. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Saw a post stating that Firefox updated and now doesn't work with Sandboxie. I spent over a year learning how to update Firefox in order to use it within Sandboxie and with Webroot protection. I can now update Firefox within 5 minutes by following these steps. It is not really ready for publication but maybe it will help you. I copied this from Excel and it is more readable in Excel. Please forgive typos.

To copy from Excel, I had to make it a bulleted list. Each bullet point was another line in Excel.

  • After many tests here is the cleanest way found to update Firefox. Changing steps or the order may work only to fail later and sometimes leads to reinstalling and re-configuring Firefox. Suggested steps can probably be ignored but I think they are appropriate and help keep the system clean.
  • Note: I only run a single version of Firefox. When updating, no applications are running in a sandbox.
  • Clean Firefox Sandboxes
  • 1. Suggestion: "Terminate All Programs".
  • 2. Suggestion: Initially "Delete Contents" of all sandboxes and then the sandbox used during installation.
  • If Firefox does not open. This can occur during update, install or even days afterwards, check Webroot:
  • 1. Follow instructions in section "Clean Firefox Sandboxes"
  • 2. If Webroot is open close (not shut down) and reopen.
  • 3. Webroot > "View Status"
  • 4. Click "Settings" for "Identity Protection"
  • 5. Select tab "Application Protection"
  • 6. Ensure all "Firefox" applications "Allow" enabled.
  • Note: While I have had seven entries, once this process was learned there has never been more than one. My Wife's computer has had two. The most common second entry is the temporary Firefox update folder "...\updated\firefox.exe".
  • To remove "Firefox" entries, other than "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox", Perform the following for each entry and do so one-at-a-time.
  • FYI: "...\updated\firefox.exe" is created during download and deleted after Firefox has been restarted.
  • Warning: Even if an entry can be set to "Deny" and have Firefox executed. Leave it disabled, rather than deleting, until you have your settings, plugins, favorites, etc. documented and you have the time to reinstall. Very early in the learning process I had to reinstall. Since the bulk of these instructions were created I have never had to reinstall.
  • 1. Close Firefox
  • 2. In Webroot set the entry to "Deny".
  • 3. Open Firefox
  • 4. If Firefox fails to open set the entry back to "Allow", "Clean Firefox Sandboxes", and reopen Firefox.
  • 5. Any that can be set to "Deny" without causing Firefox an issue, *should* be deletable.
  • Before using Webroot set FF to "Check for updates but let you choose to install them". Avoid problems that require an uninstall of FF.
  • Close all Firefox windows
  • For the purist restart the computer before and after an application update or install
  • Suggestion: Perform the section above titled "Clean Firefox Sandboxes"
  • Shutdown Webroot
  • If updating (not installing)
  • Sandboxie: Disable Forced programs
  • Immediately start Firefox
  • Ignore Sandboxie and "Webroot Filtering Extension" messages
  • Click "More" (3 horizontal bars)
  • Select "Help"
  • Select "About Firefox"
  • Click "Update to <version number>
  • Click "Restart to Update Firefox"
  • If installing
  • Install (Do not configure Firefox until it is working with Webroot and Sandboxie both running; preferably after completing this process)
  • Ignore the "Webroot Filtering Extension" message!
  • Continue from Updating or Installing
  • Close Firefox
  • Sandboxie: Disable Forced programs
  • Immediately start Firefox
  • Do not close Firefox until instructed (After Webroot has been restarted). This eliminates a later step.
  • Ignore Sandboxie and "Webroot Filtering Extension" messages
  • If Firefox has an issue at this point it has nothing to do with Webroot or Sandboxie
  • Fix the issue and Restart at "Continue from Updating or Installing"
  • Suggestion: BEFORE restarting Webroot.
  • Cleanup Firefox as much as possible so it opens cleaner and faster in Sandboxie
  • PS. I do this every time Firefox is opened unsandboxed (e.g. when Bookmarks added or settings changed)
  • More > Settings > Privacy & Security (or enter address about:preferences#privacy)
  • Close tabs other than Settings. (There should only be one.)
  • In "Cookies and Site Data" click "Clear Data" (Leave everything checked) Click "Clear"
  • In "History" click " Clear History" > Select "Everything" and Leave everything checked > Click "OK"
  • Restart Webroot
  • Ensure all Firefox entries are "enabled" in "Identity Protection" settings. (There should only be one, but there have been more.)
  • Close Firefox
  • Close, not shutdown, Webroot
  • Perform this section until there are no more issues including the appearance of "Webroot Filtering Extension" (usually twice)
  • Open Firefox
  • If Firefox does not open perform the steps in "If Firefox does not open". Note, some Firefox processes do start but not all.
