Hello,

When I am in my favorites, here for example :

- root
--- internet
------windows
------ linux [ I am here ]

I copy / paste a bookmark in the linux folder, it goes directly to the root.

Is this normal? Can we copy it directly to the linux folder instead of Firefox pasting it to the root.

Hi there,

I've been using firefox as my main browser and I've created a account and using it all the time for syncing the settings, bookmarks, logins, extensions etc.

BUT due to some unwanted (really irritating) search suggestion were being shown to me by firefox, I had to uninstall firefox from my system.

    • Throughout the process, I'd kept syncing ON always!!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

How DO I get my all data???

URGENT PLEASE!! THANK YOU


    • Note : I'm using default "Firefox-ESR" in Kali linux 2022

Using Firefox v91.11 I can't print a selection from a web page as the 'Print Selection Only' option is grayed out. This has never been an issue for me in earlier versions but appears to have been a problem with Firefox going back many years. This is the second time I have asked for help in solving this so I would really appreciate a response as I can't find a solution anywhere.

Note that the issue is only a problem when trying to print from a web page using Firefox v91.11. Safari doesn't even offer this option but the option is there and works in Chrome.

Thank you

Hello,

I'm using the Multi-Account Containers add-on and for the most part I am quite happy with it. However, a month or two ago I accidentally added a website to one of my containers, and since then I have found it impossible to remove. If I remove it from the container's site list, it just shows back up again shortly after.

I do have sync enabled for the add-on and I am logged in on 3 different devices. However, I have tried to remove the website from the container simultaneously on all my devices, but the problem still persists.

Is there any viable way to actually remove a website from a container's site list, or do I have to resort to more extreme measures like deleting the container itself?

Thanks for you help!

Up to two days ago, when composing an email, I would usually type in the first letter or two of the addressee's name in the "To" space. If that name was included in Address Book, it would come up right away. That has suddenly changed. Now that works only to bring up GROUP addresses. But for individual names, I now have to first select the "To" button and then go through a Select procedure in another dialogue box. How can I restore the previous functionality?

I find the password function in FFox very useful.

What will make it even !better! is if it had a text box where I can add notes. For example I may need to know which email address is associated with a login. Also this will be a good place to store my security questions.

Not certain if this is the place to request updates...

Thanks, Dave Pitney

Hello! My Firefox version is 91.11.0esr Several months ago Firefox starts behave this way. It's much more convenient when speaker button always appears on tab. It's absolutely incomprehensible why developers did it with Firefox. Who likes to waste time searching for noisy tab. I wish it work like before.

I've just updated my MacBook Pro from El Capitan to Sierra. Firefox has updated from 78 to 91, but not to 102 which I understand is appropriate for Sierra. I'm still on the ESR regime but maybe this is no longer appropriate? Please can you advise how I should proceed? Also I've long been unable to print certain online bank statements and I'm hoping that 102 may cure this. I have to use Safari to work round this issue

Hi, I realise the subject title sounds like an oxymoron, but...

I have private browsing enabled by default always - I want what it does re cookies and the rest and in particular, I'm the sort of person that collects gazillions of tabs and it forces me to close them every time I close FF. However, I DO want to keep my browsing history - just in case one of those tabs that got closed is something that I want to go back to.

My reason for using private browsing by default is not to stop people knowing where I've been - should they care to forensically investigate my computer - but, to stop all those trackers and cookies etc AND to impose some discipline on my browsing habits...

So, I'd like all that private browsing offers, but with my browsing history - can this be done.

Thanks Morgan.

I have a linux debian 11 o/s with up-to-date Firefox I don’t know which version at the moment it is whatever debian repo pushes down. I have 5 profiles on this particular computer with no previous issues. I decided to create another profile to be used for some test work and when I created it I then launched it and opened a few tabs to make sure it worked then closed. I planned on copying the profile files from another profile into this one so I went to the profile folder - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox/profile.names

Once there I saw my other profiles but could not locate this one so I went back to an open browser where I had the about:profiles page open and decided to delete that new profile and start over I figured maybe I accidentally saved it to a different directory. I hit remove it and it gave me the box asking if I wanted to remove files I chose yes I then go back to - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox but folder firefox was gone with all of my profiles all that was left in .mozilla was - /home/user/.mozilla/extensions and - /home/user/.mozilla/systemextensionsdev. Both of these folders - “extensions” as well as “systemextensionsdev” are empty. I go to the local directory for each profile and the data is still there for each of the profiles - /home/user/.cache/mozilla/firefox/profile.name.

The recycle bin is empty. A system-wide search for the profiles comes up with just the ones in the .cache folder. Back at the about:profiles page any attempt to open the preexisting profile results in a prompt asking me to create a new profile. I still have the one profile open and the addons are not working correctly. I did a bookmark export on this profile and doing so generated the “firefox” folder that had disappeared plus a profile folder using the same name of this open profile - /home/user/.mozilla/firefox'profile.name - it created a profile folder for this open profile using the correct name.

Any ideas on how this happened? Can the local profiles still in .cache be used to somehow restore the full profiles?
