Book Mark history deletion

Is there a way to delete a bookmark from the book-mark drop-down window (accessed from triple horizontal bar/right side of browser) but retain the same book-mark that had been saved in a folder created in Other Bookmarks? I discovered that when you delete a book-mark entry from drop down menu, the same entry is also deleted from its saved location in Other Book Marks. I was trying to reduce number of unsorted entries in drop down menu while saving (and retaining) the same link in the Other Bookmarks section and folder. I want to continue using the sorting and discrete folder saving possible with the Other Bookmark section but clean up the clutter in the unsorted bookmark section.

Greetings from North-East of France, since a few weeks ago I'm seeing a (sort of) pop-up window suggesting to login with a Google account (see the screenshot attached). I've done some internet search to find out how to get rid of it, but the only suggestion I get is to modify an option in a Google account. However, I do not have a Google account! How to get rid of this disturbing pop-up? I already use Adblock Plus and uBlock Origin, yet Google passes through them! Thank you in advance for any help you may provide.

Synced tabs disappear after logging into two different devices

So I had a laptop that had to go under repair (device A), so had to use a different computer (device B). I sign into Firefox, and I can see the synced tabs from device A. For various reasons, the very next day I had to transfer to another computer (device C), so I logout of device B, and login into Firefox in device C. The synced tabs are no longer visible, even though in my account it says device A is still connected to the sync.

Bookmarks and such still load up just fine, I just can't see the device A synced tabs at all. Any clue why this is happening?

Also, is it normal that my email is still showing on the device B menu? Even though it says I logged out successfully, and device B is not showing in sync anymore, in the actual computer it's still showing on the menu above the "new tab" option. How do I remove my email from showing in that particular browse? Uninstall the program entirely?

I created a Firefox Account yesterday and immediately unsubscribed from all Email Alerts.

Today I received another Email from Firefox titled 'Superpower #2: protect your whole device with a VPN'

I have yet again unsubscribed from all Email Alerts using the same methods as before, provided in the Email.

How do I ensure that Firefox do not email me regarding anything? I like to setup block lists as a last resort.

I want to use my tablet for writing/drawing on some websites but the browser doesn't recognize the device. It computes the mouse on the "drawing" screen but not the tablet, and also computes using the pen for clicking and dragging, and/or the tablet as a touch-pad. The device works fine on chrome and on my drawing softwares, so it isn't a problem with the pressure sensors or driver. Tested disabling all addons and restarting Mozilla, but the problem remains. Mozilla is up to date, and I use W10 (also up to date).

Any advice?

Firefox is the browser I use for my AT &T E-mails. I cannot sign in anymore using my password. It says too many attempts have been made to sign in, when it was the first time on that day I am trying to sign-in. I have tried to change my password and it works for a while, and then the same thing happens a few days later. Please help. AT & T tell me that it is the Firefox browser that is doing this. I have tried getting help with AT & T and they can't figure it out.

I'm not entirely sure what happened but I know earlier this year in as recent as July Firefox was working fine. I don't know if it was an update or what it was but now Firefox is consistently crashing multiple times a day.

There's never an error code but one of a few things happens:

  • The entire application will freeze and not let me control Firefox at all. I need to launch Task Manager to close the browser and then sometimes reset my computer to ensure it doesn't happen again.
  • With the most recent update, some of my emails on GMail (not all just some random ones) will not load in any capacity.
  • The browser will flicker white and will hide the top bar of the application so I can't close it without task manager.
  • The application will slow down and then crash with a "Do you want to send this report to Mozilla?" and I always click yes.

I have tried disabling and removing all extensions, I've tried firewall stuff, I've tried everything I can find but the browser is only getting worse in my experience. With this last update everything loads a few seconds slower than usual as well.

Is there a solution I am missing or am I doing something wrong? I am very very close to switching browsers but I'd rather not if there is a fix.

the labels toggle button on google maps is unresponsive in both satellite and maps views. where do i find a setting to allow this button to become active? can i program the button to become active? thanks for any help.

i'm on windows 11 and use firefox web browser. both are up to date. i tried it on the microsoft edge browser and it works.

i've tried disabling all addons, restarted firefox, and problem still exists.

next i went through all of my firefox settings and toggled those that might apply. problem still exists.

next went into about:config and checked all settings not set at default. toggled any that might apply. problem still there.

any other suggestions in the community? is there a particular area of firefox i should look into closer. i would prefer not to have to reinstall or reconfigure firefox on a wholesale level. i have it highly customized and it would take multiple hours over a number of days to get everything back to where it is. this is the only site giving me a problem, and only this function on the site.

under layers/more the globe view toggle works fine, only the labels view toggle is not working.

i inspected the button element in 'firefox inspect' and found the attribute disabled="false". google maps is not honouring the attribute. when i remove the attribute, the button works. i cannot apply this across sessions though.

How to force Firefox stop autoplaying videos when I'm switching to the i.e. new YouTube tab, but in the same time do not pause a next video on YouTube playlist. Some time ago it worked well, but now if I set Block Audio or\and Video in settings, I have to manually click Play, and with Allow Audio and Video chosen it starts playing video immediately after I click on another tab.

How to make Firefox accept a third-party cookie used for authentication by a Java web application?

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hello all, im needing some help.

Wifes comp blew up, an old Win7 system, component on the motherboard died, but I pulled the ssd out and dropped it onto something else so I can back data off of it.

I have it in a W10 box that is alive and well. There are 3 things i need to get at and I am not sure how, this is basically the same question for Firefox, Chrome and Opera (apparently some of her business stuff likes one browser and not another etc etc etc, I dont ask I just fix things).

So in firefox, i have the entire Firefox folder as the SSD it was all on seems to be alive and well and other back ups have been fine. Is there a way I can back everything off of her version of Firefox that is not installed just present as a secondary drive, so all her bookmarks, and (im assuming no on this part but ill ask) her web cache and add them into a new install of Firefox? Is this possible? If I just launch Firefox.exe form the D drive that was originally W7 not W10 would it fire up? It just needs to be alive long enough to do the backup to an HTML file and copy the addresses for the open tabs. Can this be done? PLEASE any\all advice would be GREATLY appreciated.

Lately using Firefox, the audio is not syncing with video on Xfinity streaming. The audio seems to precede the video by about a half second or so. When I first load a video, it works properly, but I finally discovered that the delay occurs only after I mute the audio using the "PLAYING/MUTE TAB" button. Before muting, audio is in sync with video. But when I use it once to mute, after un-muting the audio is out of sync. The only way to get the audio back in sync with video is to reload the video source. This does not happen when viewing YouTube, nor does it happen with Xfinity when using the Chrome browser. I first noticed this about 2 months ago. Before that, I had been using Firefox for years to watch MSNBC in a minimized window, muting during commercials. Unmuting used to cause no problems. I'm wondering if this problem is unique to something in my installation or if it is a Firefox problem.

I'm trying to create a FF account, but when I put in my e-mail address I get the error "Primary account email required for sign-in". I may have in the past used an old e-mail address, but that address is old and now gone.

I can't log into FF with the old account because it wants to send a confirmation e-mail (to an address that no longer exists). So my main e-mail address is now blocked from being used with FF.

I had to create a new e-mail address just to create an account to post this, but I really want to be able to use my normal e-mail address so I can use sync. Does anyone know how I can do this, or are any admin people able to help me fix this?
