Dear community,

After my OS re-installation I was hoping and I was pretty sure, that my Firefox account is backing-up all of my bookmarks. I have done this again in the past and I had the bookmarks bar there always waiting for me intact. This time though I had to reset my Firefox account password as I forgot to store it somewhere and after that I managed to get access to my account but the bookmarks are nowhere to be found.

Is there a way to restore them without having a backup file (JSON or something else from the previous OS installation?). Is Mozilla storing these bookmarks somewhere so I can have them again but from the "cloud"? If not it is quite catastrophic for me. I hope there is a solution!

Thank you in advance!

I had multiple Firefox browsers open. Each had multiple tabs open. My setting for When Startup is for Restore Previous Session. But in my case it is only restoring the last one browser closed. How do I get all opened tabs restored?

Hi. I am using Firefox for years, mainly due to it's increased security and privacy settings it provides. As you can see in the attached screenshots, I have set Firefox in Privacy & Security tab to Strict Tracking Protection and to Never remember history. The problem is that, when I close and reopen Firefox, NOT all cached content gets deleted automatically!

Please see my screenshot of Cookies and Site Data section. You will see that there is 1.1MB of Cached Web Content which is not deleted. If I don't manually delete this content (e.g. every week), the size of it gets grow to a very big number of MB (400-500MB).

Why Firefox is not deleting the Cached Web Content automatically since I told it explicitly to do it by choosing Never remember history?

I am using Mozilla Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows. This happens in all of my PCs..

Is this a Bug?

I am finding it impossible to access the following website from within a private window or with Firefox set to Never remember history...

https://groceries.asda.com/

I see the cookie warning, the top banner of the page and a spinning green circle.

The website operates as expected on my PC with Chrome in incognito mode.

Similarly, the same issue occurs with Firefox Focus on my Android phone, but not with In Browser or Dolphin Zero.

This is no deal breaker for me but I am curious about what may be causing it to happen.

Well i0ve been reading lot of thread that describes this error, and none of them have a clear solution, so, im navigating normally on firefox while i work and suddenly if i need to download something from shutter it throws me this error, sometimes when im on slack the files that are being uploadded doesnt show and if i try to upload it doesnt work... recently i tried to change my profile, using firefox on another pc in the exact moment as the error show up, and also downgrading the about_config security level, i tried enabling DNS over HTTP and nothing worked, apparently ewhen i close and restart firefox it works, but it will continue showing up randomly and its kinda frustatring, it also happens on edge at the same time but on chrome it works... and i REALLY dont want to change from firefox to another browser... i really love this....

At first I thought this was an issue with Windows 10, but then I realized it really wasn't. I am using the Dark Mode in Windows 10. When I right click on the desktop the dialog box renders in darker colors. Also, most all the programs I use take on the same colors, though I believe it is relative to the program and it is relative to Firefox. Consequently, when I am in the Firefox browser and I right click and open a dialogue box in Firefox, the colors are a white background with a black font, on every web site.

I then remembered the colors option in Firefox and went to options, fonts & colors and changed the colors to a black font on a white page. I also ticked on Use System Colors as I have done in previous versions of Firefox & Windows. However, they won't take, and my dialog boxes continue to have a white background with a black font.

Thank you.

Been trying to get the titlebar back for a while now, it just up and vanished and I never noticed it until recently when a webpage was displaying important information in the titlebar but because it was not present, I did not see this information and purchased a product that contained an ingredient which I am allergic to.

BTW: The correct terminology for the item in question is Window Caption

Found this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/943363

Didn't help.

Found this about:config setting: browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar It was TRUE I turned it FALSE Titlebar is showing.

Where in preferences is this toggled?

And is it possible to toggle it by accident with a shortcut key?

I am using Firefox Browser Version 76.01. (64-bit). When logged in to google account through Mozilla Firefox, I cannot log out of by clicking on the profile picture, as the click does not open the log out menu. And when using google image search, when an image is clicked it is unresponsive and the picture I clicked doesn't load. What can I DO? I tried many options which are there in various forums, but none of it solves the problem. Desperately thinking of abandoning using Firefox.

Hello,

I love Firefox. Thanks for making it and please keep up the good work. I used Firefox for years, switched to Chrome for about 10 and have now come back to Firefox again. Love the browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory config option. This was crucial to me returning to Firefox and I suggest you make this the default.

Anyway...

The issue I'm writing this for is that Firefox seems to be preventing my computer from sleeping. When I run

powercfg /requests

from a command prompt run as administrator, I get the following info: SYSTEM: [DRIVER] Realtek High Definition Audio (HDAUDIO\FUNC_01&VEN_10EC&DEV_0255&SUBSYS_10251259&REV_1000\5&26841d0a&0&00) An audio stream is currently in use. [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe [PROCESS] \Device\HarddiskVolume9\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

This seems to show Firefox running audio that is preventing the computer from sleeping. However, none of the tabs are currently playing any audio. Thought I'd report the issue here.
