Shortcuts: sites you save OR visit – why can't I choose sites I save only?

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

I have been using Firefox as my main browser for a while and I like it.

I have noticed that some interactive parts on some websites are missing when using Firefox. On the other hand, when using Google Chrome everything works fine.

I am attaching 2 screenshots showing that the button "Start the Chat" is missing when using the Firefox browser compared to when using Google Chrome.

Why is that?

Hello. I want to save my username in websites but not password, so I ended up saving the real username and a fake pwd (and I type it manually everytime I want to login). Is there a way for disabling Firefox asking to update the saved password (but keeping the 'fake' pwd saved)? Thanks.

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

I have a paid subscriiption to NFL Game Pass which I access through Firefox. Two years ago I was in Monaco during the NFL season and I tried to sign in to my NFL account from there. I was blocked because I was advised that I was signing in from a foreign country. Now I live in Southern California but I am still being told by the NFL website that I am trying to sign in from a foreign country. Is this history something I can clear out of my history through Firefox? I have not found anyway to speak to the NFL about this.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

Hello everyone

I recently used i2p, and installed the i2p plugin in my Firefox. He broke a lot of settings for me (related to privacy, I think). Interestingly, it broke on all my desktop devices (macbook, iMac, windows pc). After installing and removing the plugin, the following happened: - websites open in English (native to the system - Russian) - websites open in a light theme (native to the system - dark) - Firefox starts in a window not on the full screen (for the inability to track the screen resolution, I understand) - [the most important] interfaces, some web applications began to look blurry (e.g., Google sheets, or Yandex Maps). When I open the same services in Google Chrome, everything is displayed perfectly.

How do I clean the browser settings that came with the i2p plugin?

I've already tried: - Cleaning Firefox - Safe mode - Clearing the startup cache - Complete reinstallation

None of this helped.

I love Firefox, I don't want to switch to Chrome. Help, please)
