I Cannot restore 3/1 or 2/29 Bookmarks!!! What's going on with Firefox??? Now, all there is in my Bookmarks are five listings saying, " BS2trash folder for undo of bookmark deletes- DO NOT REMOVE ..."

I wouldn't have to do this except that somehow, a Bookmark folder disappeared. All too often is has occurred. I have many, many very important Bookmarks. How can I get them back---and soon?

Why Yandex has been added as "default" (and unchangeable) engine with Russian language as default (unchangeable) setting?

Hi all, In the past I was using Chrome and I have decided to move back to Firefox because I didn't like certain trends of that browser...now...the thing is...I like to use Yandex, but in Chrome -until a certain point- I was able to alter its settings to force default English language for it.

Firefox seems to have Yandex set as default...you cannot alter it and you cannot delete any of the default engines (i.e., because if it is loaded, you seem unable to try add it as custom search engine with your chosen parameters), but seems that the Mozilla developers had the brilliant idea to add it with the default settings...which is in Russian...

...and you look into Extensions and all the people writing extensions seemed to have the same idea...

Now...fine that Yandex is mostly for Russian people, but why English-speaking users to be forced with the default search in Russian and being completely denied any possibility to force the English language on Yandex (as it is fully possible if you were able to tweak the search parameters...but Firefox isn't allowing to do, because the only thing we have is a dumbed down interface with a list of search engines!)...

...alternatively...why not allow to force our favored language parameters to ALL search engines by default?

( That would mean that one could have Google, Bing or Yandex in a different language of our choice....but that change would need to be implemented on developer side...)

Hi everyone,

I'm used to typing one or two letters into the address bar and then the down arrow to access the same handful of websites every day. A few weeks ago, Firefox started randomly moving these around so that the same letters that have always made it open the same URL now opens a different URL and I have to actually search the suggestions. How can this annoying behaviour be fixed?

(a few months ago, the address bar wouldn't delete entries, but this problem vanished as mysteriously as it appeared)

hi I am curious if there is a way to disable (remove) time bar (video progress bar) from appearing in picture in picture mode in Firefox Browser 123.0 (64-bit) version. Namely, I prefer to watch videos of sport events and knowing exact time of video duration could be a big spoiler. A version of picture in picture more without time bar existed in previous Firefox Browser versions 102.0.1

I have 2fa enabled on my account, is there a way to skip/disable the third step where I have to enter a code from an email? It's already redundant with 2fa. Plus, the runaround of "enter your email, enter your password, get email, enter the code, oops your password is wrong!" is irritating enough :) It just seems unnecessarily difficult.

My Firefox used to do this and it either rarely does it now or never does it. And that is... when I would type in, say, "anysite.com," it would have an alert and ask if I want to go to a certain already open tab. I could then click on it and go to that open tab, such that I do not open a new tab. Which would be redundant. How I can I make it do this again? I always have a LOT of tabs open!

If I right click on an iframe when browsing in a container tab, and select "This Frame -> Open in New Tab", the new tab is not in the same container as the source tab. In fact it is not in any container.

Whereas when middle-clicking on a normal link to open it in a new tab, the new tab is in the same container as the source tab.

Is this a bug? Seems like a bug to me. Surely we would want the new tab to use the same container as the source tab?

This brings up something I have been trying to fix for more than a year. When I click on the email link "Start with a free scan", google.com appears at the bottom left and nothing happens, not just with your link but with all. I have waited many minutes just to see if it will link. Sometimes, after minutes, it connects. I have been trying to get Google out of this in "mailto" but cannot. If I right click "open in a new page", google does come up, the target site does (I think) and we move along normally.

Can't you fix this? Google it and you'll see it everywhere. Mozilla has a suggested approach online which does not work. Please help all the AVG and Firefox folks who suffer with this.

Thank you,

I'm just wondering why I can no longer change book mark size on FF. Even more strange I can't find anyone on the internet who has anything to say about it. Their are some fixes but they are like from three to five years ago. And it's not for the current version of FF. What is going on? Why can I no longer change the book mark size? I have a desktop.

Cookies being written and automatically deleted

Hello,

I work for Microsoft, and one of our sites offers users a way to opt out of personalized advertising on some Microsoft domains by setting a cookie. The site: https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/ad-settings/signedout

When the user clicks the toggle to Off, we cycle through four domains via an iframe and write a TOptOut cookie on each one. If everything is working properly, the user should then be able to go to www.bing.com and see a TOptOut cookie on Bing that will prevent personalized advertising on that domain.

The problem is, this stopped working in Firefox. We have verified that it still works* in 115.7.0, but in 122.0.1 and 123.0, the cookie is written and then deleted on refresh. If the user doesn't already have Bing open in another tab, they'll never see the cookie at all. I have verified this behavior in Bing several times, on my work machine (Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 10) and my personal machine (Firefox 122.0 snap on Xubuntu 23.10).

  • It still works on our corporate VPN in 115.7.0, but not on my coworker's non-VPN machine. Same version. I'm really not sure what's up with that one.

This is a large concern for us. Because the cookies can still be written, it doesn't trip our test for third-party cookies being disabled. Because the cookie for microsoft.com is written, the toggle will show up as Off even after a refresh. This is misleading to our users.

I have gone over the Firefox docs on Enhanced Tracking Protection and Total Cookie Protection, but neither seem to handle this case. Firefox does not block any trackers on account.microsoft.com or on www.bing.com. It's fine if the cookies are in separate jars, we just want them to be written to the proper domains and not deleted. Can anyone tell me what changed in Firefox recently? Is this expected behavior, or a bug? If it's expected behavior, what can we do to allow users to opt out of personalized advertising?

Example of what i want to do:

https://Website.com/P/-this-site-doesnt-exist--68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-this-is-also-an-example--34846.html


I want Firefox to automatically delete "-this-site-doesnt-exist-" or "-this-is-also-an-example-" whenever i open any of them. So opening them would instead open:

https://Website.com/P/-68290.html or https://Website.com/P/-34846.html

Can this be done?

Dear Support Team,

I tried enabling localfilelinks in firefox and found this thread https://support.mozilla.org/fr/questions/1264779 which mentions creating a "user.js" file and adding this:

/ Create policy enabling http: or https: pages to link to file: user_pref("capability.policy.policynames", "filelinks"); user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.checkloaduri.enabled", "allAccess");

// Sites to which the policy applies (protocol://hostname protocol://hostname) user_pref("capability.policy.filelinks.sites", "http://example.com http://intranet");

then reloading firefox.

The fix worked and i was able to use local files in firefox. My Problem now is reverting localfileaccess to default (blocked).

i tried modifying the "user.js", deleting it, deleting and reinstalling firefox, cleaning the firefox install and creating a new profile. when i deleted user.js the enabled options vanished from "prefs.js" but local file access was still enabled. I also tried to edit the generated options in about:config but i cannot get it to revert to localfile access beeing locked and couldn't find any way to fix my problem.

Is there an easy way to relock this?

Hello,

Has anyone else had an issue with using picture-in-picture mode lately on the Disney+ website?

I have Netflix, Youtube, etc. all open in other tabs with button available and working, but lately I am unable to use it specifically on the Disney+ website. It was working fine about a month ago, but haven't used it in a while (or noticed when the icon disappeared exactly). I included some images showing what I mean.

Any help is appreciated.
