I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

Firefox auto update has stopped working for me. Neither of the settings, see attached screenshot do anything, all I get is a popup saying a new version of firefox is available with a link to https://www.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/ I recently did a clean install of Win 10 pro x64 and this problem may have started then. I have another PC on the same network where auto download of updates are still working. Hopefully someone can point me to a way to get this working again.

Hi, thanks for clicking the post.

I have become very interested in the Logitech Craft keyboard. It has a wheel at the top left that has different functionality for different applications.

What I would want it to do is to be used as a simple scroll up/down in Firefox and other web browsers.

I have asked the community at Logitech's website and was told by a dude there that the Crown wheel in fact cannot be used as a simple scroll. Which seems to me like a major blunder as it is to me the first obvious thing for a wheel.

My question is if the information I got was incorrect. But if not, then I would very much appreciate if anyone here could tell me if there's any other way to get it, a simple scroll using the Crown wheel, working for Firefox.

Many thanks! Regards / B

Searching for non-ascii characters will also match normalized ascii counterparts, leading to too many false positive matches.

For example, searching for the character "å" matches both "a" and "å" on the page.

We should be able to configure whether to normalize the characters or to use strict matching.

Firefox 87 x86 "broke" yesterday visually. A lot of areas of pages and top area (Firefox menu area) turned black. Safe mode fixed the problem. I did not or could not see how to disable ext one at a time. I went with a "Refresh" when I was to uninstall and install. Now, FF 87 does not remember the magnification setting. I set pages to 80%, close, launch, home page (previously set to 80%) is at 100%. Pages that are bookmarked (just set to 80% prior new launch) launch at 100%. There a multiple times during the run time of Firefox that I had gone into config and made adjustments. I do not recall having to do so for magnification not being saved. I do notice that one config change made prior does not exist now, set resolution 1440x900. I think there was a true/false for page memory in config that I had switched from default before the refresh, but seeing how the screen resolution isn't 1440x900..I assume "Refresh" reset config to default.

Sum: Now, Firefox does not save page magnification. What do I need to do, other than 'bump' the size every time? This was not the case prior the "Refresh".

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Hello everyone, My mum's Firefox isn't showing in the ... dots area called Page actions of the bar the Take a Screenshot icon. I am able to add it from the Customize Toolbar... area but NOT back to where it was, in the Page actions area. Is there a way to do this? I tried this for 2h now and there is no explanation how that icon disappeared in the first place. Perhaps there is a way o moving icons around? Fresh install version 88.0 (64 bits), ignore Romanian language, icons are universal :)

Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

So for a few weeks now I've had this problem come up multiple times. I notice that the browser is slowly getting more and more unresponsive while switching tabs and eventually it stops completely. I get a loading symbol in the middle of the tab, even on previously loaded ones. I can't switch tabs anymore, but I can open a new tab once per Firefox. I can open as many windows as I want, they all just show a white page and the search bar is unclickable.

I don't get any error message from my computer nor Firefox. Restarting the computer (because I don't want to lose my tabs) solves the issue and it becomes perfectly responsive again, but it takes ~2 minutes to shut down, when it usually takes at most 20 seconds, because Firefox is not closing properly.

I also didn't add any new add-ons before the issue started appearing.

Now I wouldn't mind a restart here and there if I wasn't working as much as I do in the browser. So if anyone has an idea where to look for a solution I'd very much appreciate it.

Like many users, I find Google's 'before you continue' pop-up annoying. Because I automatically delete cookies on browser exit, it keeps popping up as it doesn't remember my settings. I have installed Google Consent Dialog Remover, and it has been working well... until now.

I just did a search for a place, and tried to click on the map to go to Google Maps. The dialog intruded, despite the add-on. But worse than that, when I clicked 'I agree', nothing happened! I cannot get to the maps page at all. I've tried disabling enhanced protection -- no change. I've tried disabling various add-ons -- no change. I've tried restarting FF in safe mode, but the same problem persists.

I can't figure out how this is happening or what to do about it. Any suggestions?

Thank you!
