Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

best, Sea

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. Also, I've checked the 2 relevant items in about:config an they are enabled. How do I get the autofill to start working again?

I would like to create what I call custom popups. If I go to a page, a popup will show my own notes. This may be a reminder about my personal history. It would have to be on my computer only and be triggered when I go to the site. I realize that the real url may be obscured by an app, and I don't know if that can be overcome.

I'm imagining when I go to a particular web page, I will see a reminder, or popup or note with my own comments.

This may already be available, but perhaps I don't know the right questions to ask.

I assume this would only be available on one browser on one computer.

Looking at a product on Amazon (that I've purchased before), it may tell me: "Works like a charm" or "Piece of *"

On a dating site it might remind me when I see one person: "Danger, Will Robinson" or "Try again after Christmas"

A business site might show a note: "Remind owner you met at Halloween bash" or "Express sympathy about loss of pet"

On the App Store it might remind me that an app: "Doesn't work for me" or "This is the one Janet recommends"

Perhaps on a saved document: "Sent on Aug 7 by Robert" or "Still doesn't have the right tone....look again in a week"

And when I am deciding which app to use on my computer: "Great graphic app when rushed, but not powerful" (I would never think that an app named "Moosepow" was for graphics.)

I may even be asking the wrong question. I want reminders that are automatic.

Hello!

I've been a Firefox user for quite some time now, thank you!

Currently, I'm working on a new website for my business and have a custom font that I'm trying to get compatible across all browsers. For some reason, I can't seem to get the right CSS to have it work on my Firefox browser, despite the trusty Internet assuring me it should be otherwise!

This is the CSS I'm using at the moment:

@font-face {

 font-family: 'Santana';
 src: url('santana.woff2') format('woff2'),
      url('santana.woff') format('woff'),
      url('santana.ttf') format('truetype');

}

I'm wondering how I might go about circumventing this issue so that the Santana script also shows on Firefox browsers.

Thank you!

Best, Rivka

Hi,

I have a web application which runs perfectly on firefox versions below 103. Meanwhile, I had to change my laptop and I installed latest firefox version on my new laptop. I have a login page in my web application which isn't working in the latest firefox version. But, the application works perfectly even now in the older versions below 103. What might be the reason?

Thanks in advance

I know register an account and login both Mac. But looks like they are two different accounts! I confirmed both Mac are on latest FF 103.0.2, I login the first one with my id, register it with my email. Then when I try to login the second one, it is asking for register again! Not login! So they always have different bookmarks. I've tried two id, drhtd@163.com and gyfguo@cn.ibm.com, both can't work, any help is appreciated, this bother me for long time.

Duplicate Firefox profiles problem, MacOS

I am trying to 'fork' my FF, duplicating my profile on to a stick, then modify each one so that my work related bookmarks, saved passwords, cookies, history etc are in one profile, and my social/general bookmarks, cookies, passwords etc are in the other. I have done this and using about:profiles can open the non-default (USB stick) profile in a new window, or set the non default profile as default, close, re-open FF into the alternate profile. All good so far. However this isnt working quite as I expected. If I switch to alternate profile, save a bookmark to the shortcut bar, then switch back to the other profile then after a second or two the bookmark I saved in the other profile appears on the shortcut bar?!? This happens whether I have opened alt profile in a new window, or have changed the default profile and restarted FF into the other profile. Is this because in both instances it is using the same local directory? The doesnt seem to be an option to choose a different local directory for the alt profile. This would be ideal if possible as it would ensure that there are no data crumbs left on my PC when using the USB stick profile which is important for my work security. Any help really appreciated.

Using Firefox 103.0 on a Mac running Monterey. Since updating to FF 100.0 or possibly 101.0, the BBC News website's videos won't play. I've tried turniing off all privacy/security add-ons and settings but still nothing. Just a grey rectangle with the BBC logo in it (see screenshot).

Safari can play them though. Any ideas?

I have my language settings to English, and English ONLY.

When I open multiple sites, or even try to log in and view my passwords ~ it constantly displays in Russian or some other language.

There is no helpful solution posted, and I have no idea to fix this. Again ~ only English is set in my personal settings.

Any advice?

I've just updated my iMac which uses mac OS Monterrey12.5. As a direct result I can no longer use the Mozilla search window on the Foxfire Homepage. It's still there but it won't allow you to enter information into the box. Is there either a way to restore the functionality of the search window or at least disable it in settings so I don't have to see the window and be reminded that it no longer works? Thank you in advance for whatever assistance or answers you can provide.

I'm trying to figure out how to disable your automatic news feed reader preview setting. Wading through your overly complicated and endless Support pages has taken more time than it would take to install a different browser and start from scratch. I like Firefox, but this is ridiciulous. I've gone through all the preferences a half-dozen times or more.
