Hi all, I've set up proxy auto configuration with wpad. And it's working, but not in every case: On my android (version 10) phone I can enter in the advanced options the "Proxy Auto-Config" with a PAC URL. This works, but only for Chrome. When I use Firefox, the proxy is not used. Any Idea why this is the case and how this could be resolved?

I also downloaded the nightly build. With about:config I can set the network.proxy.autoconfig_url. There I added the PAC URL. But the browser still don't use the proxy. Any idea how to make this working?

Cheers

I have made Firefox my default browser on my laptop. When reviewing my account I noticed that the original username (e-mail address) I created the account with no longer exists. Is it possible to replace my new e-mail address for the old one, and use it as the new User Name?

  Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

I open a new private window, go to a website such as Wikipedia, and use the in site search bar to search for say "dogs". Then close all private windows and all other Firefox windows, and re open a new regular Firefox window, both my search for "Wikipedia" is remembered by the search bar, and my search for "dogs" is remembered by Wikipedia. Clearing my cookies and deleting my browsing history does nothing to fix this. Reinstalling Firefox has also done nothing to fix this. Every bit of information i can find on the topic says Firefox's private browsing mode deletes cookies and history upon closing all windows, but this is not the case for me. My temporary patch is to remove all address bar suggestions from everywhere, but i only want private browsing mode to function as intended. Thank you for reading all this and i hope you can assist.

Well, even the pulldown is not working here. None of the solutions for the garbled text works for me (and now that pulldown option isn't always working) and I am about to permanently change to Safari after years of being a Firefox advocate and user. Without any way to actually ask an actual person about this question/problem and not being a programmer I am exceedingly frustrated and disappointed. I do have to agree with the commenter who said we shouldn't have to go through this just to get a website to display. I've tried several times to upload an image but frankly I feel like just giving up

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

As the title suggests, I just want firefox to be nice to use again. Since its latest update it is far from nice. Too much stuff is set to darkmode, even though I have googled like crazy and fiddled with most, if not all, about:config options to try and restore it.

I will do whatever it takes, but my firefox theme (abstract firefox) must remain intact. Surely there is something I can do in the userChrome.css or whatever it's called.

It is just so very tiring having to fix mistakes made by firefox, that keeps changing stuff for the worse. Changes that nobody ever asked for. I am giving the browser one more chance for old times sake, since I have been using it for 20 years or thereabouts. So please, firefox... stop trying to force your users into using stuff that your staff team or whatever likes to use. Think of your users.

And please help me out.

Thank you.

Hi! I want to move a user's Firefox profile to a new computer. I had them log in on the new workstation so Windows would create a new user profile for them. Then I had them open Firefox, so it would create the new Firefox profile, and then close it, so I could transfer the Firefox profile from the old system. Now, in their Firefox Profiles folder on the new system, \\NewWS\c$\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles, I see two folders. One of them is "something.default-release" and the other is "somethingelse.default". I was expecting one folder there, so why are there two? And which one should I use to receive the profile from the old computer? The OS is Windows 10 and Firefox is v.96.
