Hi all, I've created a Sync Account and it works correctly on a computer. But I cannot find a way to have it "restored" on another computer. If I connect my Firefox Account on a new computer, it doesn't request me if I want to restore data, it only creates a new "device" in my list...so it's not clear to me...it seems to be a one way sync :-( it's quite useless.

In other words, how can I use it as a backup solution?

Bye.

Hi,

I'd like to open a specific URL in a specifically identified tab.

Suppose my Firefox browser is open with 3 tabs: tab 1 has support.mozilla.org loaded tab 2 has mozilla.org loaded tab 3 has www.thunderbird.net loaded

I'd like to run a shell command such as "firefox.exe https://iot.mozilla.org", but I'd also like this URL to load in tab 2, no matter where the user's focus is. Is this possible? How can I identify the Firefox tab from command line? One way would be to detect the web page title string, eg. "firefox.exe https://iot.mozilla.org --open-in-tab=\"Internet for people\"" (I just made up that option of course).

Thanks

I've started making some promotional videos for my website recently and me not being the sharpest tool in the shed when it comes to computer tech, I ask a lot of questions first before I plunge in.

Now the problem I have here is as seen with some other questions that my browser does not support any of the video formats etc etc, giving me an html 5 error.

My software is Camtasia Studio 8, the exact same as one of my friends use, I had to ask him what format do I use for uploading to Youtube, he said to leave it as the default which was MP4 720p, which I did. After uploading was complete on youtube I got the error message; totally bizarre really because I can see videos he has made quite well, with the same settings. Generally I can see 99% of videos on youtube. (although I cannot see any at all on Dailymotion, but that isn't an issue)

My Browser is Firefox 52.9.0, my operating system is Windows XP.

I am accessing this web page by non-firefox program. Firefox is totally broken somehow.

After installation of a web proxy/security agent - Cyren Web Security - at our organization, users are getting a misbehaviour of firefox.

Upon opening, the message "Safe Mode is a special mode of Firefox ..." appears and the buttons "Start in Safe Mode" and "Refresh Firefox" appears.

Choosing any of the above options results in the following: Firefox opens. Disappears momentarily after a few seconds. Re-opens, saying all the tabs have crashed. Disappears again momentarily after a few seconds. Re-opens, saying all the tabs have crashed. Goes on in a loop

Trying to kill the process from Task Manager. Firefox appears again, new process respawns and goes in the loop above. Operation (Task kill) must either be repeated a number of times (approx 10) or workstation restart so that firefox goes off.


We have sadly had to resort to Google Chrome in the meantime the issue is under investigation. Affected versions vary from 52 to 60.01 (latest)

I have tried to deploy Firefox ESR 52.8.0 to resolve the matter. This resolved the matter for some users. For others, issue persists on Firefox ESR as well.

PLease help.

Does Firefox store "All Bookmarks" or autosaves to C:? What's the filenames? Dave

My VISTA computer's motherboard died, and thus the computer, but the hard drive was saved. It's now an external drive to a Win 10 laptop. When I go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox the directory is dated 5/23, the day before the crash, so something got updated, but the most recent date on files in the directory is 5/10, including the file firefox..application..505kb. When I double-click it and go Bookmarks>All Bookmarks>Import and Backup>Restore there's no file dates in May except the one created yesterday when I was trying to find a way to get a missing bookmark directory and its contents recovered. Thus: How can I get my missing bookmarks back? Are they on the rescued C: (as some kind of "Favorites" file), or "in the cloud" somewhere? Is the firefox file I mention above the correct file to double-click? All help is immensely appreciated. Thanks, Dave

Since Friday 25/5/2018 Firefox Developer Toolbar (SHIFT + F2) shows me hundreds if not thousands of errors on every page I visit, but if I click on the counter it'll show the Developer Console with 0 or almost 0 errors.

Just to make an example on this page it's showing me 663 errors, but if I open the console it only shows 2(3) warnings and 1 error. On some pages after a few minutes it reached 4k+ errors.

Firefox ESR 52.8.0. Yes I tried to launch firefox in safe mode and in fact I'm using the safe mode right now to write this post, but nothing really changes.

There should never be no way to load a website open to the public

STOP FORCING SECURITY I DON'T WANT. I should never see this:

"To protect your information from being stolen, Firefox has not connected to this website.

This site uses HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) to specify that Firefox may only connect to it securely. As a result, it is not possible to add an exception for this certificate."

In other words, Firefox refuses to open the website. There is no "I understand the risks. Take me there anyway" button. It won't add an exception. I got to it on Chrome (after a warning that it was insecure but an option to override the warning), so it's not impossible to connect. You at Firefox just decide I'm better off not getting to connect.

IT'S MY COMPUTER. WARN ME IF YOU WANT, AND THEN IF I SAY CONNECT ME ANYWAY, OR GIVE ME A CONFIG WAY TO OVERRIDE THE SECURITY. It's a doctors' office website. They don't take financial data. I don't really submit any data to them, just read what's there. But you know, even if I were giving enough data for identity theft, you should warn me but still let me do it if it's MY decision to take the risk.

So, please tell me how to override it, and if there is no way, fix the browser to warn me, but then to let me say "I'm going there regardless." You should never say "We will not connect you, no matter what you say."

hey, I have two questions:- 1. The arlier version of FF(59.0.1) used to report when a website was trying to canvass the browser; that message seems to be missing in FF 59.0.2. The message that used to get displayed was " This website (<website name>) attempted to extract HTML5 canvas data which may be used to uniquely identify your computer. Should Firefox allow this website to extract HTML5 canvas data?" This message/warning isn't showing up on Mozilla Firefox 59.0.2 after I upgraded. Could you elaborate?

2. Bonus question: DailyMotion website/videos don't plan on mozilla firefox; Youtube, Vimeo work just fine. For info, I use HTTPS Everywhere, PrivacyBadger, Ublock origin and No Script add-ons but I adjust them depending on the website. Tried all of it but DM does not work.

Thanks!

Every laptop on our organization are installed with softphone apps which is x-lite. Thus, we had developing some portal on web to make it easier make some call. Basically the portal contains sip link with some number followed by colons.

Our orginzation use Firefox ESR 52.7.3. To make firefox able to handle sip protocol, we add some configuration on about:config as bellow

   network.protocol-handler.expose.sip -> Value -> false

After that, whenever our user click some sip link, the browser would triggered x-lite application. At the first time, the pop up launch application will be shown and then end user will choose default application to handle sip link.

Our client running on Windows Machine.

However, for our user to change about:config and choose default application launcher are hard to do. Hence we need to develop simply way to approach that.

So we think to make a pre-configured Firefox ESR which is comes with custom build configuration and default launch application are the solution for our problem.

I had read from several article that talk about deploying firefor for enterprise that comes with some configuration on default/pref as this link refer https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Enterprise_deployment_before_60#Configuration. But the Firefox it self aren't ready to download.

However, Is it that any possible way to pre-configured installed? How to customize the installer?

Thanks
