Although I love Mozilla and I am using it for decades now, I find it very frustrating the lack of password protection security. I cannot understand why Mozilla, the browser that aims to be the most secure for its users, cannot have a system similar to Chrome that requires user login before revealing stored passwords.

Whoever gets access on my computer can easily get all saved passwords - which might include banks/IRS/email, etc. It is even worse on the phone app.

This can be a major reason to stop using Mozilla Thank you

I use Hotmail/Outlook email. Lately, I've noticed that when I click on an email link and FFX is already open, FFX "times out" on the second link. I have to close FFX and click the link again, so that FFX is brought up from "square one," and the link opens normally. Why can't I just open a new tab for each new link without having to close FFX?

I use a calibrated monitor profile on my laptop. In About:config, I've set color management mode to 1, and I've enabled ICC v4 (even though my monitor profile is v2), but colors are still consistently oversaturated in firefox. They look the correct in Chrome like they did in Lightroom. The colors look similar or the same in Firefox as if I apply my monitor profile to an image without converting color spaces.

I've tried a clean reinstall of Firefox, I've tried putting the path to my calibrated profile in About:config, but nothing changes.

I want to bookmark 10 selected history pages. I selected them, and right-click gives me the context menu as shown on the attached screen shot. But selecting "Bookmark Pages" does not work. Only individual pages selected this way will bookmark. And the option there "Open all in tabs" works fine, and I can then bookmark the 10 open tabs. But that wastes my time and bandwidth, and supposing I want to bookmark hundreds of history pages? Opening them all in tabs would break the machine.

There are several posts on this site regarding uninstalling Firefox. I am running current Firefox on current W10 64bit 1903 desktop PC using Ethernet with Spectrum as my ISP. I am having a couple of problems in Firefox that are not happening in current Chrome. 1. Page-not-found 2-8 times a day that resolve every time by simply clicking the "retry" (or something close to that) button. I reset my router to "factory" and installed most current router firmware but that did not help. Netgear Support has been unable to help. 2. In current LastPass addon, I have to re-login to LastPass every time I start Firefox - did not used to do that (a year ago), and in Chrome or Edge that does not happen. I have re-installed the LastPass add-on. I have upgraded Firefox many times and have cleared history/cache many times. So now I want to COMPLETELY remove Firefox, reboot, and then install Firefox from scratch. Can someone please point me to the web page that tells me how to properly remove all of Firefox so that I can re-download/install it from the beginning? I do not care about retaining my Firefox settings or other from my current Firefox install.

I get the message

Bad Request

Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand. Size of a request header field exceeds server limit.

Every time I try to log in to my account. All other sites appear to work correctly.

This happened this week, what is going on with Firefox? I can log in to my bank account from another browser. I have version 70.0.1 (64 bit).

So I've been using Firefox for quite a while now, both at home at work and on my phone. I've never had any issues with anything. I've had the same 3 extensions running since the installation of Firefox(Momentum tabs, Popup blocker and uBlock Origin)

But recently, Firefox has been uploading insane amount of data to the point where it just does not make sense. I'm adding two images, 1st shows my trend over the last 4 months while the 2nd shows how much data Firefox has been sending while being on (with a reset) for about 4h.

It became an issue because i usually do not close my computer and leave Firefox open with the tabs open (on average 5) and it was consuming all that data while i was at work While a "fix" could be well, close your Firefox, if this keeps up I'll just switch browser.

As far as what tabs are kept open a few Stock images website, GogoAnime, and usually my e-mails or work where i've left it off. No streaming website is left opened

I've got no active VPN connections, I've got complete control of my network and am beyond 100% certain that the issue comes from firefox, no other IP are on my network and lastly disabling all of my extensions has not changed the behavior of Firefox. My Firefox is up to date, (70.0.1) so everything else on my computer, from windows, gpu to all other drivers

Any help would be appreciated, otherwise i'll just change browser. (tried leaving on Chrome and it hardly uploads anything whatsoever)

Since Firefox is natively supporting .webp images, they are displayed as webp images on web sites providing this option. How can we force Firefox to fallback to jpg or png images? I know .webp images support is an improvement, but for my case I need to export a lot of pictures from websites using a drag'n drop from Firefox to Windows Explorer. As webp images are not supported natively by Windows, this is useless... I would like to get the standard image instead.

Remark : Before Firefox v70, it was possible to force it tweaking about:config : "image.http.accept" = "image/webp,*/*" > change to "*/*" But this tweak is not working anymore.

I often use the trick of right clicking on a link and then open in new tab to keep the original web page open but now nothing happens when I do it. I wonder if there has been a Firefox update today which has caused this.

It started this morning and I'd be most grateful for some assistance with this as it's particularly useful with Facebook.
