Feels like heavy censorship this was closed right away shortly after creating the thread... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1390467

Why was this closed? Why would Dropa recommend private browsing mode / incognito mode? This mode has nothing to do with being private, google safe browsing, do i have to say more? Google and privacy don't fit !!! Besides, there are SO MANY youtube videos where people explain why incognito mode IS NOT private, so to be honest that is a really lame response to what i have said in the original post.

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

• Mozilla makes most of their money by shipping Firefox with Google as default search engine. • Mozilla partners with Facebook to create "privacy preserving advertising technology". • Mozilla now includes a unique identifier to all Firefox downloads/installations. • Mozilla Firefox by default has telemetry enabled without informing the user. • Mozilla Firefox now includes more and more bloat such as Pocket, etc.

None of the above is good in any way... this is serious BS makes me worry about Mozilla and my Privacy while using Firefox, i already switched to Librewolf anyways but i still use Firefox for other purposes. Anyways... did i forget something? Am i missing any headlines above or is that it?

What does everyone think about this? I mean seriously, what do you think?? You folks on this forum obviously are using Firefox, so..?

Hello,

Firefox just updated a little while ago to 103.0. Since then, anytime Firefox is open and I either scroll or hover over menu options it causes graphical glitches. I've included an image I was able to print-screen.

It doesn't occur with other browsers. Suggestions?

I'll add that Firefox seems to also be freezing up as well.

So, Firefox automatically updated (to 103.0.1), and somehow or other the sidebar with all the bookmarks disappeared. Normally, this would take me about 10 seconds to find where the function was hidden, and turn it back on. No big deal--just a petty nuisance. Now, however, this function has been hidden so well, that I have no clue where to look.

I understand that interfaces change, and not everyone works the same way, but that's no excuse for flat out taking away a tool that some people (no matter how small a minority) still use on a regular basis, just in the dubious name of 'fashion.' Leave well enough alone. If I wanted my tools changed and moved on an irregular and capricious basis, I'd stick to Microsoft.

Now, please tell me how to get my bookmarks side bar back, or put together an update that makes it functional again.

I frequent Creative Fabrica a lot, I have had a subscription there for well over a year and never had any problem downloading anything, never had so much as a warning about the website. This website is larger than Creative Market. I purchased the ability to download in a subscription there, my payments are all made on time.

Even then, I am trying to download free "daily gifts" (fonts & graphics), and this is the first time I have tried on my iMac, but FireFox does nothing, and I cannot download the .zip archive, even though I can download the image files.

I have been downloading from elsewhere across the internet just fine. I usually use FireFox because I like it better than Safari (and a lot more than Chrome or Chrome Edge), until this issue.

So, what's the deal?

I heard about restarting in safe mode, but have no idea how, I always have such an issue getting FireFox to restart for updates, already (and why doesn't it offer the button to do just that?).

Hello,

First to clarify, this is a Firefox issue, because every other browser does not have the same issue.

I've tried audios from different websites such as spotify, twitch, instagram, youtube, facebook, netflix, amazon prime.... And the audio are failling, There is audio in the video but it is like when your internet is pretty bad and the audio is not working properly.

I've tried removing all addons, clearing the entire cache and cookier - re-installing firefox. none of the above worked.

There's a site I use frequently that downloads .htm files to my computer every time I open it in a new window. The site does not have a settings page to turn this feature off. It also functions exactly the same once the file is deleted, and it only recently started doing this. I trust that the files are not malicious, but I also find it annoying to manually delete them every single time.

Is there a way within Firefox to block specific sites from downloading content?

On the Homepage or new Tab page, we can choose a search engine to search with.. but instead of searching through the search engine it auto moves your text to the URL box where it then takes what you search and links it with webpage history and as you quickly hit Enter to submit your search, you get some random webpage instead of that you search for from the URL auto-fill. AT LEAST add an option to the Home Settings to turn this manipulative setting OFF. I asked for help before about this and got a manual config edit that ONLY works for non-Private browser and doesn't remain through updates.

Ads and other annoyances that distract me from being able to browse the web in peace are a pet peeve of mine. Take for instance this example amazon prime promotion that loads in its own web page that cannot be blocked by normal means. I do not wish to use amazon prime and don't want to be asked every time I checkout in order to complete a purchase. To make matters worse, the options are deceptively colored much like how bloatware developers word their installation wizards. I want to be able to bypass this page entirely and get redirected to the "no thanks" option every time this page loads. Is this something that can be done so I can shop online without being nagged for unwanted services?

I've tried the solution from this closed thread and it doesn't help. I'm on Debian based Linux using Firefox version 103.0

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349553

from about:config, every sessionstore has been disabled and sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes set to 0

If I close my firefox using 'x' or shut down computer before closing firefox directl, firefox restores the previous session. From a thread on support site that I can't find anymore, I read that the fault was that, firefox was reverting to default settings before closing when using 'x' instead of File -> Exit.

I can't believe such a massive hole still isn't fixed. For me, the worst that can happen is someone will see a site that I find embarrassing on restarting. As stated in the other thread, if you're a journalist or someone else, in certain countries, this can become a life of death situation. Along with other shenanigans Firefox has been pulling, this kind of drives home the point that Firefox isn't the browser anymore if privacy and security is your main concern.
