I use Firefox on both my Windows10 and Pop!_OS desktop (I dual boot). On my Windows install, every time I boot Windows, I have to toggle off "Recommended by Pocket" on the new tab page. It does not stay toggled off on its own when I next boot Windows. I always completely shut my computer down.

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Is there a way to enable certain extensions such as BlockSite when at work (9-5, lets say)? Or for example -- more specific to my usecase right now -- the Unhook extension should be disabled after work and during weekends? Basically setting extension on/off times based on time of the day -- like iOS allows to set focus modes and then "allowed apps" during these modes.

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

no ryme or reason that i have found. not a continuous issue, works normal 3 hours, next minute boom takes off immediately to bottom, if i reverse direction action will stop, then i drag bar back upward where it took off. I have replaced batteries in mouse thinking low voltage, not this issue, on-screen cursor will stop/n start or to me acts like too many other background apps running using all bandwidth or ram = low batt voltage =replace batt problem solved. scrolling issue does seem to happen more often in overnight hours, hard to say definitively, MS is no help, after reading 9 pg. of community scrolling issues mine is diff. no issues of randomly, this has been happening for awhile 2yrs maybe more. its the random part that confuses me, i gone threw all mouse settings on/off n firefox, windows, HP, no fix, no error, very odd, i have changed wireless mouses, i dont think i've tried a corded one, after this i will, just gotta find it. HP laptop; Gear Head MPT3200RED mouse;HDMI cord to 42" Sanyo LED TV; ANKER USB w/4 xtra slots; I never touch laptop lid is closed all time, multiple screen switch on. Its very annoying only one indention roll of wheel, one line selected in win settings, mouse receiver plugged into laptop which is approximately 6 ft. away max. there will be days works perfectly normal, n then this evening started again, probly been week maybe, i'm gonna start keeping track of every factor i can think off date, time, website, tabs active, extension s on/active eg. just now tubi going threw my list which is very long page, 6 dvd picture lines down boom takes off just caught it around line 20 outta 150 lines maybe, heres thot, internet access threw verizon hotspot using tether hi speed cable connected to Galaxy S9, if web page not fully loaded thats when action starts, once it starts doesnt matter then random part kicks in, i can restart cpu, or disconnect S9 for minute , sometimes that helps, but not always. oh. i also use onscreen keyboard to type...suks...this Q has taken over hour to type as i click one letter at a time to spell words, my hand n index finger cramping. any thots you can think of wud be most appreciated , i'll do my best at documenting incidents , thnx vic

Hello,

I've been corresponding with LastPass about this, but they now refer me to Firefox support.

I am using: Windows 11 Pro: Version 10.0.22000 Build 22000 Firefox browser: 101.0.1 (64-bit) LastPass Add-on for Firefox: 4.97.0.2 Phone: Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0 LastPass Authenticator app on phone installed: version 2.7.0

Hello,

Enabling LastPass authenticator/passwordless has worked for my Chrome and Edge browsers on my Windows 11 PC [LastPass Version: 4.97.0]. However, it does NOT work with Firefox, so I need further help.

When I close the Firefox browser [version 101.0.1 (64-bit)]and re-launch it, then click on the LP extension icon [version 4.97.0.2] I first get a LP pop-up requesting “Accept Permissions” (see attached screenshot).

When I click through that with Accept, I get a regular LP login prompt requesting both my email and master password.

After I enter my credentials, THEN I get a Multifactor Authentication pop-up on the PC and the Authenticator [version 2.6.0] app prompts on my phone [Samsung Galaxy S9+ with Android 10.0]. (see screenshot) When I use the phone to enter Accept and my Authenticator PIN, then the browser extension is logged on as I would expect.

If I leave Firefox open and log out of my LP account then click the browser LP icon to log back in, I get the Use Authenticator button. When I select it, the Authenticator app on the phone pops up and log in is smooth, as I would expect.

However, when I click on the LP icon on the Firefox browser, I get (another) notice that I can activate Passwordless (see screenshot). When I accept that, I have to provide my master password again. Even though I have turned on the Passwordless feature several times, If I close Firefox and re-open it, and then click on the LP icon, it does not invoke the Authenticator. Instead, I have to repeat everything. It seems like closing Firefox does something to delete the Authenticator option saved in LP/Firefox.

In both Chrome and Edge, I have settings to delete browser history when they are closed. This does not seem to affect the Authenticator behavior. However, I have set the same settings in Firefox to delete browser history on close, but the Authenticator behavior is not as expected.

What setting in LP or Firefox can be used to have the Authenticator setting survive the browser being closed? Also, how do I avoid having to go through the Permissions prompt every time I launch Firefox and try to open the LP extension?

Thanks, Dave Hejde (970) 219-8843


Hmmmm. Firefox support is not accepting multiple image uploads. How can I get them associated with this submission?

Hi! There are multiple recent threads on this issue, and not one of them has a solution, so I'm asking again. I want to increase the font size of the top header text, specifically the bookmarks toolbar, search bar, and tab titles. The text is too small for me to read. It would also be useful if I could increase the font size for the applications menu (the hamburger drop down menu in the far right of the header).

I do not want to increase the size of anything else, so changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is not the solution. I have changed my global zoom settings, and set them specifically to "Zoom text only", but this setting does not effect the bookmarks toolbar or the search bar. Changing the default font size also does not increase the size of this text.

Just to clarify again, these threads are not solutions to my question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214027 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293358
