I have FF on Linux laptop and connected to my FF account to sync. All works fine. However after closing down laptop, restarting, open FF I do not auto reconnect to FF account and sync. What settings do I need so that I auto sync when opening FF? I DO NOT want FF to save site passwords i.e. BBC, TED, etc.

FF 84.0.2(64bit) for Linux Mint - 1.0

This is being sent / monitored from a Windows 10 computer and not the Linux laptop

Not sure if part of this posted as had an internet issue previously that took some time to resolve.

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Have a great day

Firefox 80.0 (64-bit), Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Insider build Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.487) This just started in the last 30 days or so. When run a speedtest in FF, the download speed is significantly lower that in a different browser, and more importantly, the upload test fails, and my wireless network disconnects. I have checked my network logs and I see no blocking taking place. I disabled DoH in FF settings and experienced the same results. Please observe screenshots, below. Note, I first noticed this in Version 79, but it's possible that it began earlier. I don't run speed tests frequently. Site = https://www.speedtest.net/ Connections = Multi Photos 1 & 2 are from within Firefox. Photo # 3 shows the identical test run on the same PC from Vivaldi Browser. I have tested after disabling extensions, and even from a private window, all with the same resuls. Please advise. Thank you! Pete M.

Until a couple of weeks ago, Firefox (don't know which version but update is automatic) handled media the way I wanted: videos (e.g. YouTube and other similar sites) did NOT start automatically but after I operated the play control the video started with audio enabled. Then I noticed that on some sites audio was disabled when the video started, so I decided to investigate. After spending HOURS reading all the information, trying out settings described Firefox Support, browsing fora where similar / related issues are discussed, refreshing and - eventually - re-installing Firefox, I just cannot get it to work. Until attempting to get this to work the way it did before, I had NEVER configured autoplay in Firefox options. Not had I EVER configured autoplay for an individual website. So, evidently, I don't understand it. Currently, Firefox 84.0.1 autoplay is set (in options, permissions) to Block audio and video but videos start automatically with audio. No settings for individual websites. What I want is that videos DO NOT start automatically but that audio IS enabled when I start the video. Can anyone advise me how to configure that?

I'm using Mac OS Big Sur and my setup has an external display. When using any other application on my mac, I can use Window > Move to <display name> to move windows to my external display and back. Because I can map a keyboard shortcut to this function, I use this all the time to move my windows around so I don't have to take my hands off my keyboard.

Firefox however seems to be the only application that doesn't implement this for some reason. Has any other Mac user found a way around this?

Hello. I am the user of Firefox browser. My main browser is firefox for recent years. I've been using it very well. I am very satisfied with the customization of Firefox. But today, Firefox stop several times when i use youtube and google. Some youtube videos are not start, and scroll is stop end Firefox says "No response" when i am searching in google. Some of the youtube didn't run at Firefox, so I played them in Chrome and it worked well. And it was not an Internet problem. Because other online programs such as messenger worked well. I bought a new desktop and formatted it a month ago, and I installed the latest versions of Windows and Firefox. This is why I think Firefox is a problem. Please check why Firefox stop today. Thank you.

Before when using Firefox, if I wanted to print, I could select - from the File drop down menu - either Print or Print Preview. Now Print Preview seems to have disappeared! All I get is Print and then a selection menu makes me manually select custom to list the page or pages I want, and then select the size of the printed page - all VERY inconvenient and VERY difficult to use. What happened? Was that an update to Firefox recently. If so, VERY poor decision and programmer that decided on this change should be fired.

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

For nearly half a year I've had a very strange issue with a tab that simply vanishes. It's taken a while to notice and then figure out the pattern, and here's how it seems to go...

I launch Firefox, which already has many open tabs; it's set to reopen my previous session. Typically I then open a new tab to check my email, do a DuckDuckGo search, or something else (but the activity/website doesn't seem to matter). Then something in my email or my search will inspire me to open a second new tab. All of a sudden when I do that, the first new tab of the session is gone. So for example if I was checking my email and saw something I wanted to research, I'd open a new tab and all of a sudden the email tab is gone.

At least a few times I've then opened a *third* tab to go back to the website I just lost, and suddenly the vanished tab will reappear, and I'd then have duplicate tabs on the same website.

Much more often the vanished tab does not return until *later.* That is, I eventually close Firefox and eventually reopen it, and suddenly there it is again. I believe, but I'm not certain, that this *always* causes the vanished tab to reappear. It's a pain to rely on this fix, though, especially since it can take something like 20 seconds to reload all those tabs.

I think this strange behavior only happens when I first launch Firefox -- in other words, only once per session. I've never noticed it hapening a second time in the same session. I can freely open new tabs without fear of losing another (at least none that are in the visible part of the tab row).

Anyone else have this issue? Or can you recreate it?

This may be messy, sorry. I hated the new FireFox appearance, so stuck with 78 on MacOS 9. I never approved the update, but somehow, my FireFox upgraded after a crash. Of course, it gives me the constant :

Error code: SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE

I want to go back to 78. (I am aware of security considerations, I use other browsers for that.)

I tried reading the forums, but do not see this question.

I am hoping if I can log in to FireFox 82 to my account somehow, it will save the active tabs. (there are 100 active tabs yes, because of end of year issues) FireFox 82 cannot log in.

I saved my profile, ran 78 and it lets me log in, but with a new profile, so I cannot open previously open tabs.

So my question is: How can I import the active tabs and all bookmarks into FireFix 82? (assuming I need to do a reset?) How can I get the active tabs into FireFix 78? (preferred, as I do not like the new look in 79+)


thanks!!!

It seems that my preferred width of the browser window on desktop is so narrow that some websites (not all!) seem to think I'm on a mobile device. And so they serve me the "mobile-friendly" version of the website instead of the standard desktop version. I can tell it's a "responsive design" thing because if I widen my browser window, the desktop-friendly version automatically appears.

Is there a way to disable this so that all websites are forced to always serve the desktop version of the website?

I have forgot my password to my account and also lost the 2FA codes. Since I have no longer access my account, I want Firefox to delete my account. I used a backup email on that account. I tried to open a new Firefox account with that backup account, but I wasn't allowed to create a new account with that backup email address.

I can provide you my national ID,passport and other ID cards to prove that I am the real owner of the account.

You can even video call me if you want but please delete my account so that I can open a new account with those emails.
