I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

The facebook tab seems to fail to work. After I log onto facebook with a tab, I open another one, but it shows the facebook page logged on with the account that I chose on the 1st tab. If I log off here, the original tab also logs off. The 1st tab has a blue line underneath while the 2nd one is black. Does anyone have any hints on this?

When I want to search for something on a website, I hit CTRL-F which activates full-screen mode. I would like to know this shortcut can be reprogrammed to search for something within a page instead of activating full-screen. I tried searching this community and on-line for this information but could not find it. Thank you for your time. I use Mozilla FireFox 67.0.4.

Extentions in private browsing

Since Firefox 67, in Add-on manager, your shown what installed extensions would work in private browsing:

Also, this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/extensions-private-browsing?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

Yet the add-on in question, Lastpass does auto connect on browser close, as it requires cookies.. so i must use "custom setting" with the only option selected "Clear history when firefox closes" as the equivalent to PB.


However i need more info on what it reports in Add-on manager... what is Mozilla saying "This addon "should work" ? or "it will work, but there could be poblem when you restart browser" ?

Hello,

more than one week users start report that they are lost pinned tabs. In next logon they not see last pinned tabs, and can see only a half of them.

Users use roaming profiles and some of them use ue-v profiles.

I found that Mozilla Firefox try open files in AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles. This folder not sync for roaming profile. And remove every user logoff. For UE-V unlike roaming , this folder remains (not delete after logoff), but is not sync to a nearby computer. Just AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox - sync with profile.

Is this causing a problem?


I also noticed that after updating the file appears "AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\installs.ini" with content [308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release Locked=1

and in profile.ini

[Install308046B0AF4A39CB] Default=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release Locked=1 [Profile1] Name=default IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/tldv0ieg.default Default=1 [Profile0] Name=default-release IsRelative=1 Path=Profiles/6pkh0btp.default-release [General] StartWithLastProfile=1 Version=2

What does it mean?

Thanks )

All,

I have five tabs that open by default in Firefox. If I, say, navigate many pages away from "home" on one tab, how can I easily return to that tab's "home" location. Using "ALT-Home", as I have in other browsers, opens a whole new batch of my home tabs.
