I would like to name my credit cards ("Irl's AMEX", "B's auto Visa"). Safari allows this but Firefox doesn't seem to. Or at least I can't find it. Basically, when I view a saved credit card, instead of seeing, e.g., "****1234 2025-01" I'd like to see a text entry which I can edit. I'm even willing to do a bit of fancy footwork (add something to the .plist, say). OS X High Sierra, 10.13.6.

I am working on that but i can hook up the ssd i have in that computer to another work computer that i have but it does not have all of my work stuff since i have been working from home due to covid. Is it possible to load up the session i had on my original ssd that is now currently going to be setup as an external drive for my work computer until i can fix my home pc? I ask because i had alot of tabs open with work related stuff that i had not bookmarked at the time so i really need to restore that session so i can recover that work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Autofill Addresses shows up under Forms & Autofill, but not credit cards! Sequence of events: 1) Credit card autofill worked fine. 2) Installed (Intego) VPN & software suite. Set the net barrier application rule to block ksfetch; allowed all other Firefox connections. Credit card auto fill info showed per usual but now would not populate. 3) Researching in FF forums, changed a few extensions.formautofill settings. That's when credit card section disappeared from Settings. Thought it was a good time to stop; did not take screen shot of settings before making changes, so thought it best to reach out. All help is appreciated!

For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?

Firefox is an excellent browser. I use it on all of my devices.

Is there a way to save the current tab to a URL file on the Windows (Version 7 and 10) file system. I realize you can do that by dragging the URL from the Firefox URL list box to the file folder but for various reasons I was hoping that it would also be possible as one of the choices from the Menu (as in "\File\Save Page As").

If that is possible I have another question.

In a Windows file folder with a number of URL files, can I select a number of those files and right-click the selected files and have them all loaded on to Firefox simultaneously.

I know that this worked with a single URL file in a Windows file folder (by Double Clicking it) but I have not been able to find a way to do it with a group of selected URLs in a Windows file folder.

Both of the above were available in the old (now no longer functional) IExplorer from Microsoft.

None of this is critical but I was just curious.

Thanks.

I am using Firefox 96.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.1

If you have "'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed checked in Privacy & Security/Cookies and Site Data then this causes sites that use a service worker to fail registration with the error:

"Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope https://every-layout.dev/: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode."

This *only* occurs with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave etc. all register the service worker OK. I know the workaround is to put in an Exception to Allow but this should not be necessary. In this case the service worker is use to provide access to paid for content and off-line reading.

I contacted the site's developers and they tell me that they have been waiting for ages for Mozilla to fix this issue and suggested I used an alternative browser.

Can anyone explain why Firefox behaves in this way and if this "feature" will be fixed on future releases?

Thanks

FireFox has been my default browser for many years and it has been great, no problems. Within the past three months, however, I've been unable to access financial sites that I regularly use. The first was in October when one site upgraded its account access security. Initially, FireFox worked after the upgrade, but then I could no longer log into my account. I spoke to support staff for that website and they said they've been receiving complaints from other clients who use FireFox and suggested I use another browser, which I did and was able to access my account. Today another financial site suddenly blocked access using FireFox with a message that I needed to unblock cookies for the site, so I went into FireFox security settings and added the site's address to the exceptions list, but still could not enter the site. I am having no problems logging onto these sites with another browser, but FireFox is not working. Any suggestions? I would like to keep FireFox as my default browser, if that's possible. Thanks!

Frankly, I find this very confusing, so not sure what is going on.

To connect to the server at work in order to perform over the phone interviews, I need two tabs open in Firefox. The first is for a software dialer called Softphone, and the second tab accesses web based interview software called Confirmit CATI.

Attempting to log into the dialer from CATI results in "Incorrect Extension" errors even though the extension number is correct.

What I discovered today purely by chance, is that in the menu on the top left of the Firefox browser, when I have the above setup activated, there appears a new additional menu option called "Tabs sharing devices", and if I click on this, a "Microphone" labeled drop-down displays, then if I click on that, a further option is displayed regarding Permissions for the Softdial app to use my headset microphone with a "Use the microphone - Allowed" dialogue box where you can enable or disable permission for the Softdialer to use my headset microphone.

What is strange is that if I open this above described microphone permissions dialogue box without changing any settings, I am able to log into my work server successfully (?)

This seems like some sort of glitch or bug which is preventing a clean connection to my workplace.

I would be very grateful if some one could advise me as to what I can do to fix this, or is it some sort of software bug that needs to be fixed by Mozilla or Microsoft. It's driving me nuts.

If you need any more information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance for any helpful advice regarding this problem.

Hello. My pinned tabs keep disappearing - I now understand what is causing this, but I'm wondering if there is a workaround? I'd really like for my pinned tabs to show on any/every new Firefox window.

ISSUE: If I have more than one Firefox window open, and at some point during the day I close them in the wrong order, I lose all of my pinned tabs, permanently.

As an aside ... just in case the devs are reading: this seems like a very bizarre choice for default behaviour; why make it so incredibly easy for a user to unwittingly lose potentially dozens of pinned links? It's also not very obvious why it happens and have seen numerous people struggling with this issue. However, I appreciate that's how it is, so I'm simply hoping there's a solution :)

Before anyone says: 'just use tabs instead', I normally do, however, for reasons I won't go into (related to a very popular 3rd party plugin) some things open in a new window by default - there is no option to open them in a new tab, so I regularly end up with more than one Firefox window, and it would be nice to know that one false move doesn't decimate all the pinned tabs I've made.

I have Firefox on my laptop (Win10 Pro) and on my Android phone; just bought a new office computer that is running Win11. My laptop has a long list of bookmarks and a dozen or more open tabs. I would like to get this same setup on the new computer. I thought I followed directions but since it does not work I guess I have missed something important.

Go to the menu in upper right, then the > next to my account, which brings up Manage Account, Syncing, several other items, then a list of tabs on my phone, another list of tabs on my laptop, and a third list of tabs on an old computer that no longer exists. It has been syncing for 2-3 hours without evident progress. I would like to delete the dead computer to avoid confusion but see no way to do it. Mainly I want to sync with the laptop or, failing that, import the bookmarks from it.

I also copied the FF profile from the old computer into the new one. The files and directory structures are identical but FF cannot read the profile. I do not know what to do about any of this.
