Dear all,

I want Firefox to automatically remove cookies and site data, when Firefox is closed (which I'm able to do), but I'd like to have some exception, so that my Google Search Settings or WebWhatsapp configuration is not deleted.

In the past, it was possible to do (and there are many threads, where it is explained), but the the current version of Firefox, does not seem to easily allow it. If 'I go to "about:preferences#privacy" and then to "Cookies and Site Data", I only have the following options "Clear Data", "Manage Data", "Manage Permissions" as well as "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" (which is an "all or nothing" instruction). There seems to be no way to customize that specific cookies don't be deleted, as it was possible in the past, at least not here.

We are small IT company and I would like the be able to share a specific bookmark folder to my colleagues. Share should include usernames and passwords for bookmarks in this folder. Being able to do this everyone will have access to company related logins. Creator should be the admin and shares should only be allowed to use the bookmarks and not edit or add new ones. a good example would be the way that Dropbox works, I can create a folder and share it to another account, by sharing it gets added to the shared users account, and I can specify if they can edit files or just view them.

I really hope that this could be achieved, for it will make our lives much better and more productive.

Thank you

I just bought a new computer and want to sync my firefox bookmarks, tabs etc. I am trying to sync and it is asking for my phone number. I have a Mexican phone number but my internet company uses a U.S. Ip address. When I enter my number it says it is invalid. I have tried several ways. Can I finish the sync with this number? I don't actually need it synced to my device. I don't have firefox on my device (iphone)

The address autofill is mostly useless the way it is implemented. It creates tons of entries that are almost the same, and there is no easy way to tell the difference (for example same address different email address). The drop down that appears is overwhelming. I think Firefox could learn some things from the way LastPass has Form Fill Profiles. The advantage Firefox could have is storing rarely used addresses (which I'm not going to bother with on LastPass), and the Firefox approach functions even when one is not logged in to LastPass. Thanks

In Windows 7 Firefox 60.0.2 (32-bit) if I shift-clicked the "Library" tab in the WindowsTaskBar I would get a new instance of _"Library"_ which is TREMENDOUS for searching my [huge / years-cured] History when already searching something in it. In Win 8, Firefox 65 (64-bit), the action above generates a new browsing window. I would like to have the FIRST behavior.

There's no way to see what a theme looks like unless you install it. Please fix this Firefox!

Please bring back the classic desktop page so we can preview themes.

I would like to print out the Search, Privacy & Security, etc settings in Firefox. I'd like to have a hard copy for reference. Doing several screen prints will work but that seems like a waste of paper due to all the white space between the lines.

Cookie Manager was the only thing that made the newer (at that time) Firefox work for me, and now it's gone, too. When I'm browsing the web, I sometimes want to delete only cookies from specific visited sites. Now I can't even do that with Cookie Manager anymore. Remember when we could just do that within Firefox? And then they got rid of that. And now Cookie Manager is gone, too. So to delete specific cookies, I need to clear them all and then log in (once again!) to the pages I want to still be logged in to. Please bring back the option to delete only specific cookies!

Bing is popping up on my home screen whenever I want to search. And then it stays there. Bing also steals my search when I use Goggle. The only search engine showing under Customize is Google. It's google I want. I have followed Bing's instructions for removal as well as a couple I have found here by poring through Options, Customize, Extensions and Add-ons, and Help, as part of several found instructions. I am running Firefox Quantum Mozilla under Windows 10 with Google as my search.

And I cannot find nor get rid of Bing.

Hello!

I use FF 65.0 / 64 bit Windows 10 Pro N / 1809 / Built 17763.292 Nvidia driver 418.81

In this version of windows, but also in the last one, FF causes Windows blue screens (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED). It happens after some time working with the browser, especially when many tabs are open and videos are played. But not always - I cannot reproduce it. I just know it always happens when I browse in FF.

I have uploaded the corresponding MiniDump file on my cloud storage: https://box.medunigraz.at/s/ccJj8qbC9mESAjL

I also include my DxDiag file, so you can see what I have installed.

Thanks for any help, best wishes, Herwig

I run a Linux lab using Centos 6. All the users have their home dirs on a NAS which are mounted using autofs All the user are authenticated using ldap The problem is that when a user opens Firefox for the first time it takes a very long time, it look like Firefox has failed to start but after a long wait it starts. The next time the user start Firefox it opens fine with no delay. However, If the same user logouts of the computer and then moves to a different computer the same problem occurs. As I understand things, Firefox writes a bunch of files to the user's home dir on the first time startup. Maybe the fact that the home dirs are NFS mounts might explain the delay. However, when the same user moves to a different computer then there should be no need to write any more config files.

What can I do to improve this?

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/776547 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1099128

I've tried the suggestion from above links, but none solve my problem. My Windows7 Taskbar appearance "Lock the taskbar" is checked.

Other maximized window's program is not hiding the taskbar, normal.

The way Firefox hides my taskbar is unpredictable : A. open Firefox in maximized window, the taskbar is not seen

B. open Firefox in maximized window, the taskbar is seen.... but when I want to click the taskbar by moving the mouse pointer to the taskbar, as soon as the pointer arrive at the taskbar (not clicked yet), the taskbar disappear.

C. open Firefox in maximized window, the taskbar is seen.... and I can click the taskbar (the empty one). But as soon as I click the Firefox page, the taskbar disappear.

The problem is since yesterday. Yesterday I thought "it will be back to normal after I shutdown the computer today and turn it on tomorrow" :).

Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated. Thank in advanced.
