Hi, I just would like that whenever I open the browser, it would open my saved homepages. If I turn off the computer without closing firefox then the next time I open the browser it will load my previous session. I dont want to load my previous session, I want it to open my homepages every time. I have already unchecked "restore previous session" in the options. It only works if I close the firefox before turning off the computer. Just, please, tell me which option I should uncheck in about:config.

I delete my cookies the end of each session. So when I reload FF and revisit any sites that require cookies I have to click to accept, which is tiresome. Can I set certain trusted sites to automatically recreate cookies? I find the 'manage data' panel very confusing - I'm not sure what I'm blocking and allowing. Please see screen shot of settings.

I have set a number of pinned tabs and leave a few other tabs always open. I set Firefox to restore the tabs when I close it and reopen it. Most of the time I have just one Firefox window open and this works fine. Occasionally, however, I need to open a second window usually with just one tab and if I forget and close the main Firefox window with the pinned tabs, etc before the single window one, Firefox reloads this single tab when I reopen it. Is there a way to avoid this behaviour?

Getting URL of latest version of an extension

Greetings,

I am a sysadmin working on an enterprise deployment of a Firefox extension, specifically this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/

It's a password manager called BitWarden.

I am deploying the extension using the official Firefox ADMX templates, so far I configured most settings correctly. When I am deploying the extension to my users (I am using Microsoft Intune), I need to provide an URL from where the extension will be downloaded. I found that URL by copying the link from the 'Add to Firefox' button from the https://addons.mozilla.org/hr/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ link.

I found the link to be: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/3843699

What I want to know is the following: 1. Will this link stay the same for all future BitWarden extension versions? 2. Is this something that changes when a new Bitwarden extension gets released or is this link static? 3. Is there perhaps a link which automatically redirects the download to the latest available version?

Some online guides say that a 'latest.xpi' string needs to be appended to the add-on's page (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/ in this case), but I found that not to work. If I go to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/bitwarden-password-manager/latest.xpi, it throws an "page not found" error.

Thank you in advance!

Best regards, Nemanja Simpraga

We have around 1000 Firefox installations on our government organization, all installed via the Firefox MSI installer. Unfortunately, we came late to realize that the Firefox ESR would be a much more suitable product, compared to the normal Firefox branch.

Now, some years ago we would simply mass uninstall the normal Firefox and mass install the (latest) ESR version and all would be well. Problem is that we have to keep existing profiles (including passwords/bookmarks etc), something that is not supported in the latest Firefox builds.

Can anyone offer some advice/"hacks" to accomplish this? Note that whatever we'll do, we'll have to do it automatically, we lack the man-power to do this manually on a system by system basis...

Thanks in advance for any information provided.

I'm trying to find a way to change where Firefox 93 stores my temporary internet files away from C Drive to a different drive to reduce lag. I found an article on how to do it using the about:config utility, but I can't do what that article describes — right-clicking in the about:config browser does not give me the option to create a new string; there is no "new" option.

How do I change this in Firefox 93?

Hi all, For years, I have used Firefox to download audiobooks from Audible.com. I go to Audible.com, open my library, click download, and then a pop up shows the .aax file I'm going to download. The problem - In the past week, the pop up window now shows that I'm about to download a .mp4 file. That doesn't play nice with Apple Books or my iPhone. I've called Audible several times, but they haven't been able to help. If I use Safari, the .aax file is downloaded correctly. This is a Firefox issue. Any ideas here?

Thanks for your time and help! --Scott

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

I am trying to print some pages from within my Firefox browser which is updated daily.And no matter what settings I choose for page width, margins, orientation or scale/fit to page the pages print way to the right and half the information is not printed. This happens when I choose to print the whole pages as well as when I choose to print my selection. I went to the new about support page (which I hate as I cannot change settings like I used to be able to change them) and I cleared the printer settings as was suggested in the Firefox help section and that had no affect/effect on the printing issue. I have wasted half a ream of paper trying to figure out how to deal with this on my own and have just filled my trash receptacle! Any help with this issue would be greatly appreciated. And you could throw in (if you like) a tip on how to change settings in the new about: support/config pages) Thanks very very much!

Both drop-down menus (e.g., the drop-down for "Which topic best describes your question?") and popup menus for add-ons in the bookmark bars work inconsistently or not at all. The right-click menu and the 3-bar menu often fail to work on the first few tries, but eventually open. (And in the case of the 3-bar menu, it often opens without certain options, like "Settings," "More tools," and "Help," though these usually appear after waiting a few seconds.) Other menus, like drop-down menus on website or several pop-ups for addons, don't work at all, no matter how many times I try.

The issue isn't solved by starting in Troubleshooting mode (insofar as they can be reproduced -- some things, like the add-on popups, can't be since the add-ons are disabled) or by clearing the cache.

I'm running Firefox Nightly 95.0a1 (2021-10-06) (64-bit) on Arch Linux, though the same issue seems to affect Firefox 93.0.

Thanks very much in advance for any help.

Firefox will randomly stop resolving google search results. At random times, no search entered at the top url bar will resolve. The browser will just change the text in the bar, and then won't do anything else. If there is a Google page already open, it won't load any links from the results. Google.com won't even load. This typically lasts about 2-5 minutes.

I've seen this in both Windows and Linux. Linux Builds I've tested were the Flatpak from flathub, the snap, the Fedora Repo, and the Tarball binary. They all had the same result after a while of using it. This also happens on both my home network as well as my work network.

I have cleared my profile by manually deleting the folder in appdata or in ~/.mozilla, and tested with no extensions and no setting tweaks. The only tweak I made is disabling DNS over HTTPS. If I change the default search engine to DuckDuckGo or something else, It no longer happens. but that's because it's not trying to access a google domain.

I have attached a gif of my issue.

I'm bringing a problem, but I'm also bringing a solution. At least the solution that worked for me.

There are at least a couple Mozilla threads on this, but they didn't solve my problem.

If you have no audio in YouTube, or some particular Firefox tab, go up to the specific tab that you're not getting audio in.

As you move the mouse to the Red play button which is YouTube's logo, if my fix is the right fix for your particular lack of sound, you will see it turn to a Muted speaker icon. Left-click that muted speaker so that it unmutes!

To reiterate, evidently Firefox has the ability to mute or not mute a single tab! Also, you may see the word MUTED in the area immediately below and to the right of the Red play button, helping you to know what's going on. The thing is, the Muted speaker icon ONLY appears if you've Mouse'd over it, which I think is suspect programming.

Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?
