Hi - I go to Firefox preferences home page to choose Google.com as my own Default url. But after about a week or so, it always drops this default choice, and I have to do it all over again - week after week after week. Why does it do this, and how can I make the url default choice permanent?

Thanks.

Retrying Save As Web Page, Complete does not retry all files

Using 118.0.1 (64-bit) under Linux Mint 21.2.

Apparent bug: Retrying failed "Web Page, Complete" case of "Save Page As..." does not retry downloading files.

  1. Observed behavior:

1. With the extension "DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials" enabled, typically if I do "Save Page As..." and choose "Web Page, Complete", then one or more files in the resulting "... Files" folder is missing compared to if the extension is disabled. This is probably as it should be. But...

2. In the downloads dropdown the download is shown as "failed". This is arguably as it should be, though the lack of information as to exactly which file download failed is unhelpful. Or arguably it is not as it should be, since from the point of the privacy extension user the download did not fail, it succeeded completely. But...

3. ***If I then click on the retry icon, it re-downloads *only the HTML*, not the files folder, and reports success.***

  1. Expected behavior:

If a "Save As..." "Web Page, Complete" fails, then retry should attempt to re-download all the files, or at least all the ones thought to have failed.

Why does FireFox not allow me to play videos in Youtube above the resolution 360p. Since now FireFox won't allow me to play YouTube videos from 720p or 1080p anymore. While other browser's allow me to play above 360p up to 4K resolution. What is going on with FireFox this never happen before until the upgrade of FireFox in Manajaro ARM.

A few months ago, an automatic feature in bookmarks quit working. It used to be that when you bookmarked a page you would be prompted about what bookmarks folder you wanted to put it in. That suddenly quit working. Now, after you bookmark a page, you have to go into "Manage Bookmarks" then move it to the folder you want. I can't find a setting that would bring that back. Was this a change that was deliberately made in an update or is it just a glitch that happened somewhere along the line? If that feature was removed, I'd like to know why. It doesn't make sense.

Everything started when I was fed up with ads on youtube. I purchased ad blocks. Then I had troubles with ad blocks. Ad blocks keeps breaking down. It will work for a few weeks then cracking. This went on for a long time until finally they said I had an old version, that I have to download the current version and they sent me a link. I tried it and then the link said I have to choose a paying option. I knew that's not a special link. They just sent me the same link for buying a new adblocks. I subscribed a 5 year program. And their service didn't even last a year.

In the mean time google keep flashing the ad of subscribing to youtube with a prime service.

But I started to download Firefox. I had a terrible time downloading it. I failed a couple of times. I finally managed to download and install Firefox. In the mean time the suspicion about google is messing around with my account started.

I haven't been happy with google for a long time, ever since they started to monitor people's comments on youtube. So after I deleted my videos and then I went into troubles of making comments on youtube. Finally I succeeded changing the code they gave me to a name I can remember. In the mean time they discontinued my account. All kind of things happening to me. I finally shrugged them off as a matter of miscommunication. But the flashing ads became a flashing warnings, something like you must choose google or discontinue adblocks. Then I started searching if there's a battle between google and adblocks. Finally firefox came through, and I was still troubled by annoying ads. Finally I got so mad, I just deleted adblocks completely out of my computer. And somehow I found firefox has an option I can turn on to block the ads. Ever since then I was enjoying watching youtube again. And google's warning became more frequent and I just close the window without choosing any options.

All through this period, I ran into troubles with my computer on and off. I keep telling myself it's because my grandson is playing with my computer. But I cannot help thinking things are really getting out of hand. I need some help.

My grandson finally getting used to using my daughter's computer. I really shouldn't have that much trouble any longer. This morning when the stock market started trading. My Robinhood page didn't update and showing the durrent stock prices. It went on for a while. I googled if the market is on holiday. It's not a holiday. Then I tried to refresh the page, and nothing works. I finally deleted the page and started a new page. Then it worked. This went on for about an hour. It seriously disturbed me a great deal. I chatted with Robinhood, and they said they didn't have any trouble with their internet. I know it's time to ask help from Firefox. It's google messing up with my account. Can anyone tell me otherwise? Please help.

My issue is I can't see the outlines of the tabs. It's just a broad, pale blue area above the page content, barely distinguished from the white background of the content itself. I can't see the address bar, either. Why don't applications use borders any more? It's really, really annoying. At least the + sign to create a new tab has made a re-appearance, along with the X's on the tabs to close them (I couldn't find them when I started up Windows this morning, started searching frantically for a setting to display them as it seemed like there was no tab bar at all, and eventually they reappeared and I have no idea how).

I really hope there is something to be done short of editing a .css file somewhere, but if that's what has to be done, please tell me where to find the file and ideally, what elements in it I need to modify.

BTW, thank you for putting outlines on the text entry fields for this web form. An awful lot of web site developers don't seem to think they are necessary.

Sometimes I get notifications from Firefox which send me to "usefulcontentsite.com" (don't click this, might be harmful!) and when I click them, uBlock Origin blocks them. So I'm pretty certain that is spam (or worse). However, I could never attribute this to any page or maybe some harmful extension I have installed. Also, I mostly block site's requests for notifications.

Here is the list of installed add-ons: - ClearURLs (recommended by Mozilla) - Firefox Multi-Account Containers (official extension) - KeePassXC-Browser - uBlock Origin (recommended by Mozilla) - User-Agent Switcher and Manager (recommended by Mozilla)

So imo nothing exotic here.

Does anyone here have a clue where those notifications might come from?

Is it possible to perform partial bookmarks sync?

Let's say, bookmarks from machine A that are synced to the server completely would be then synced from the server to a bookmarks subfolder on machine B, is it possible? The rest of the bookmarks on machine B would need not to sync to the server in such case.

Alternatively, both machines sync to the server but the user would need to specify which bookmark sections (folders) need to be synced and which not, thus avoiding duplication and maintaining consistency.

Firefox has been closing at random times. I do not see any crash logs in Firefox or event logs in Windows as to why this is happening. I can immediately re-open and it picks back up right where I left off. I am on Windows 10 enterprise 2h22, running Firefox 118.0.1 64-bit (this has happened in previous versions as well). I do have some add-ons, Tabliss, Cookie Quick Manager, Dark Reader, Sidebery, Lastpass, and Firefox Multi-Account Containers. I have checked each of these and uninstalled all of them but still happens. I have also uninstalled and re-installed and I am stumped. (I also have this same set up running on another computer but it has never done this to me)

Any ideas on what else I can try? Or other ways to investigate what is happening?

The screenshot is from gmail opened in firefox on mac. There is a specific font that looks funny and is hard to read. But only in Firefox. The same email, when opened in the other browser, looks fine.

My guess is that there is some bad cached font stored by Firefox. Is there someway to reset that cache?

Is there a way to prevent the Translate page from coming up every time I open a non-English-language page ? I was brought up in Britain, but I now live in France. It seems that Firefox is unable to imagine a bilingual user? Best regards, Tony.

P.S. I see that your "Email me when someone answers the thread" link does not respond to my click – I'd like to accept, but I can't!
