Dear Community,

I have a hand full of passwords I would like Firefox to fill out but stop asking me if I like to save logins and passwords every time I have to login on a websites.

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Hopefully, Elmar

In the past, putting a subject in the Firefox search box and choosing the ebay search engine opened ebay and passed the subject to the ebay search. This ebay page automatically came up with the ebay search results.

Not now. Putting a subject in the search box and choosing the ebay search engine opens ebay, but then stops.

My other search engines, Google, Wikepedia, Amazon, work as before and go direct to the search results.

Any advice on how to get the Firefox>ebay>search links to work as before?

Thank you

Hello, we have a CVS repository which can be browsed using viewvc. In this repository there are some .docx files which are MS Word documents. Until about one week ago, clicking on such a link brought up a dialog asking what Firefox should do with this file. One of the options is to open it with Word (see image 'ChooseWord').

But now this is no longer possible. I believe it vanished in the course of the automatic Firefox updates. Now the dialog looks like in the attached image 'NoWord'.

How can I restore the old behaviour?

Thanks, gernot

Version 84.0.2. Windows 10. I inadvertently opened a second FF window which had no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar. I closed FF which had many open tabs and many bookmarks toolbar items. Now all tabs are lost and all toolbar entries are lost. On reopening FF, only the FF with no tabs and no bookmarks toolbar will open. I have searched and read many "solutions", but nothing that I can get to work. Does anybody actually know what can be done or that nothing can be done. I had not yet reinstalled my general backup program prior to this so there is no other backup and all I have to rely on is FF alone. Are at least the bookmarks toolbar items stored somewhere even if the tabs are not recoverable?

All bookmarks are there except for bookmarks toolbar items.

I would like to restore both tabs and the bookmarks toolbar if possible. If anything can be done, can anyone articulate some clear instructions?

I've been using new fonts to customize my firefox, but I found that the fonts I installed won't show up in the dropdown menu in preferences, I have to create a new profile to let the new ones do.

I don't want to change my profiles from time to time, so I turned to userContent.css, but I found it either cannot cover enough contents, or cover too much, causing some icons to break.

So the only way to change font for me is to find a way to let the newly installed fonts to show up properly in my current profile, but no matter I restart my browser or my computer they don't. The fonts I have must be read at the time I create a profile, and I guess the list is stored in either somewhere in my profile or under the firefox program folder.

I made every effort to search for it but failed, all I know now is it's not in any text file under profile folder, I wonder if anyone can help me with locating the list of fonts. My firefox version is 84.0.2 on MacOS Catalina 10.15.7.

Hi,

Ever since a while ago, some images are not showing correctly in Firefox. I must have gotten this issue in the last update(84.0.2) or slightly earlier. I tried resetting it, and used safe mode, but I still get the same issue. I don't know how to fix it at this point, and the only solution I have at the moment is to switch over to Chrome for important times, such as for online exams, but this is not ideal. Does anyone have a clue about what could be wrong, or am I doomed to use alternatives to Firefox during important times/just for viewing certain pictures?

Current Version: 84.0.2 (Auto-Update/Help -> About Firefox) OS: Windows 10

Thank you.

For the first time after 10 years, I can no longer access my PNC bank account using Firefox V84.0.2. This problem started just this Sunday Jan 24, 2021. I am using AVG and the Defender firewall. When I try to enter my account PNC tells me that it cannot find the code and tells me to use another browser like Chrome or Internet Explorer which I don't want to do. PNC tell me to contact Firefox as, "It is not their problem." But so far I have found nothing in Firefox to solve the issue whatever is causing it. I need help as I would rather not change browsers.

I have restarted my PC, checked and restarted AVG, checked the troubleshooting program, and reinstalled Firefox, but nothing seems to correct the problem. So where do I go from here?

I try to move them, but there is no "insert here" line appearing, and after I release my left mouse button it somehow opens the bookmark the cursor was on at the release moment. No matter fullscreen or windowed mode. I have custom "animated Codama" theme and some add-ons like "Midnight Lizard" and "uBlock", but disabling any of them doesn't help. Any ideas?
