Aloha from Hawaii, I have a Windows 10 desktop computer. Many of the passwords i have stored are either computer generated or are a few of my own variables. Recently I had trouble logging in to Netflix. I called and spoke to different techies who advised me after 2 hours of "troubleshooting" to erase all my cookies "temporarily" after telling me that other clients reported similar log in trouble with clients who had FIREFOX browsers. They suggested after erasing my cookies to re=enter Netflix via my Microsoft browser, and that I could resume Firefox afterwords. We tried that, and it still didn't work. The next day I tried it again to no avail and finally reset the settings to save cookies as needed. HOWEVER, I began to discover over a period of several days that each and every one of my accounts that I use regularly with the exception of one..that stores my password in its account (plus I remember it) still works. With every other account I had tried so many times to enter with either old passwords OR new ones..and after repeated attempts over a period of time...discovered that the computer would NOT respond to "saved or remember password" instructions..and I would be told that I needed a temporary code to re enter password to reset or create a new passwd. i used every variation on Google to create new ones, use old ones and got the same dead end. Then I found that other accounts had stopped "remembering' passwords that were "memorized"..and I had to go thru the same process with them. Even in the rare occasion that I got into my gmail account, that only worked once. The next time i logged in i had to request a phone in code. Kindly advise me what is happening. Is it settings, cookies, or something else? THANKyou for your support. Aloha from Hawaii. P.S. I am wondering too if Google, which never seems to recognize my "location" or computer "thinks" i am somewhere else than my actual location in Molokai, Hawaii. Also, I don't use Google as a search engine. I use Duck Duck go, if that makes a difference. I only keep Google because i still have a gmail email account.

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?

I use MyYahoo as a start page and Firefox as my default browser. Have done this for years. Today, my bookmarks at this page started loading differently in the afternoon with errors in the names and taking up a lot more screen real estate. Also, the punctuation for names of bookmarks is now defiled. The page doesn't allow me to edit them either. I thought it was a Yahoo problem, but apparently not, since everything loads normally using Chrome.

Solutions?

Can I have a double row of add-on icons, instead of an overflow?

Hello,

I can't order the add-on icons on the toolbar.

1) I have more add-ons than I can fit on the toolbar, and 2) the overflow menu does not display all the icons for all the add-ons that I have installed.

So, in the toolbar customization menu, I can not place the icons where I want them on the toolbar because I can't drag them there when they are not shown. See the picture I took of the screen. The first picture shows the customization menu. The overflow menu is visible, but does not show all the icons that should be there (see the second picture). The second picture from the normal screen (not the toolbar customization screen) and shows the all the icons of all the add-ons I have installed that appear when I click on "More tools" in the top right hand part of the screen. Part of the icons is on the toolbar, part is in the overflow menu.

So, the problem is that I can't re-order the icons by dragging them from the overflow menu to the place on the toolbar where I would like them to be (e.g. to group related add-ons).

Is this an error made by me or an error in the program.

If possible, I would like to have all my icons visible, not partially hidden away in the overflow menu. Is it possible to have two or more rows of icons visible?

Please, help. Thank you.

This just started happening last week: every time I sign into my bank, I'm required to be texted a security code to continue with my banking. It only happens on FireFox, not in Chrome, so it's a browser issue, not the bank. It's so annoying! Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, i recently have a issue, where most of the addons don't show the content of their defined popup.

I do the following sequence.

- open firefox - add a addon - add it to the toolbar - click on the icon to access its popup

The popup is then opened and the outline of it's size is most likely correctly calculated, but the content is missing.

The reference Addons are passff, with no Content SakaKey, with an partial rendering HTTPSEverywhere, with the full content and the expected behaviour.

I tried to reset the browser via the about:support page, no change. I restarted in safe mode. That was kind of pointless, because without addons, there are no icons to click at^^.

I created a fresh profile, also no change. So i downloaded the latest nightly, started with a fresh profile, and installed one addon, still not working.

I fickled with the browser-style property in the manifest.json of passff, and set it to true, but again it still shows no content.

What is most likely missing on the shared data, i run Ubuntu 20.04 with i3 as a window manager.

Has anyone a idea what i am missing?

Im trying to get browser notifications to show up on top of a game im running but they never appear while focused in the other window (running in borderless fullscreen).

i tried changing focus assist options in win10 as suggested somewhere but i dont think i had that on in the first place, and it didnt fix the issue.

Also, any way to turn off the transparency on the notification popup would be a cherry on top

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

Hi! I recently reset Firefox on my iMac, which restored it to default settings. But now, although I'm signed in to Firefox on my Macbook laptop and my Android phone, logins and passwords aren't syncing to the iMac. They're all on the same network, inches apart, and the two computers are otherwise synced (both running Catalina 10.15.7). I've tried the "Sync Now" button in Firefox, but it's not helping. Any suggestions? Thanks!

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?
