Hi guys, I use many folders to organize my bookmarks, and it'd be easier for me to find the folders I need using the search option, but the search results show only tabs. Are there ways the search result will show folders too, along with tabs?

Thank you very much!

https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-09-24-23-54-18-679698.png

I can choose the sub folder to save the bookmark to. BUT I now CAN'T scroll down the screen to hit the save button. Because the bookmark window doesn't have a scroll bar or a way to make the bookmark window smaller. This is frustrating. Firefox is having other issues not connected with this issue. But the overall picture is getting me to the point of dumping Firefox and going to Google Chrome.

Is this an issue with Firefox? Is there a way for me to maintain the scroll position?

I am unable to open My office email page, as well as www.brightmls.com on my web browser. I have tired deleting the application and re-downloading it, I have tried clearing out the history and cache, nothing seems to work. I would hate not to have Firefox as my main browser as these 2 websites are the important ones for me and I use them most often.

Advice?

Sorry to be a pain but I am still having problems with the "Autofill logins and passwords" setting. Yesterday I had two replies but one was way over my old head. I got so far but then I was at a loss as to which files it would be safe to try and delete so I didn't delete any. The other reply was easier to understand but alas it also didn't work. I tick the "ask to save logins and passwords" and the "Autofill logins and passwords" boxes and after I do this all works fine. However if I leave my Firefox browser for any reason and then re-login to Firefox these settings, along with "Remember History" have all been deleted so that I then have to tick and alter these settings again. Now for the other strange part Firefox on my android phone is synced with my desktop Firefox and I don't have any problems, all logins and passwords work fine. I have up to date Windows 10, Firefox version 81 and the latest TREND maximum anti-virus protection. I have tried exiting TREND and doing a restart of Firefox with add-ons disabled and that makes no difference. Finally I even uninstalled Firefox and managed to install an earlier version and that didn't solve the snag either so I have updated to the latest version again.

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

I updated a sound file on a web server I have access to. When I reloaded a page with a player to play that file, the old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Go into Preferences, Privacy, manage data, select the domain involved, delete all the data. Reload the page again. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Reload again, this time using CMD-R, the hard reload key combo for MacOS. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Delete sound file from webserver, CMD-R. Old sound file still is the one presented by the browser.

Click play button. Old sound file plays.

Right click on sound control, select Save Audio As... Saving file to my computer appears to happen. However, the file saved is only 281 bytes. When I try playing it, audio player yells at me and says that is not a sound file.

Reload the page in another browser, it reports sound file missing.

Sound from old file still plays in FireFox.

First, I went into settings and deleted the data for the domain where this sound comes from.

Reloaded the page,

All I really want is to get firefox to play the new sound file, but its belief in the old file won't let it see the new one. Firefox has stashed the old sound file somewhere on my system and it keeps insisting that is the file I should have.

Well, there is one other thing I want. I would like acknowledgement that this is a bitchable situation. I hate it that tech world always says every problem is my fault. Maybe if the techworld would stop blaming users for problems they might start figuring out how to handle the news they filter more honestly as well.

Lately I've been having trouble with keeping deleted bookmarks and folders in my bookmarks toolbar from reappearing. The folders in particular have been persistently returning just a minute or two after deleting them. It's also quite noticeable when they come back as I have the 'show bookmarks toolbar' option enabled by default. I've restarted my firefox browser, uninstalled+reinstalled and refreshed and the problem continues to happen. Before trying those methods I tried clearing cache and cookies in settings with no luck either. From what I've noticed it appears to be just a certain set of bookmarks folders which I don't even recall ever adding to the toolbar; some of them look like they are from other device bookmarks I added after syncing. The rest of my bookmarks library seem to working fine however. I looked over the Firefox support articles on the subject as well but couldn't find a fix. Does anyone know something else I could try?

Any help with resolving this annoying occurence would be much appreciated!

It seems so simple. You're reading a page and run into a link you want to read later. You use the standard Control+Click to load it in a background tab leaving your present reading uninterrupted. But more and more often you're taken to the new tab immediately which means you are not only interrupted from your present reading but have to remember to go back to where you were (not a habit when you're used to opening in background tabs and closing them cleanly when finished) and find where you where on what may be a multi-page document. Often tens of pages. Wasted time.

Is there any way of making Control+Click work properly? One sure fire but more long winded way is to right click and hit T. That seems foolproof.

I don't know if this is an issue with cookies or with something else, but it's driving me to use Edge to access my email. Site is email.godaddy.com

Many sites now require two-factor authentication. The second factor is often in email. It is dysfunctional for me to keep using Firefox since I can't login to email.godaddy.com. I can login to it using MS Edge, but switching back and forth between two browsers repeatedly is not something I can do. Firefox has been my go-to browser for everything for a long, long time.

What things can I try to fix this?

Here's some of my FF settings: Privacy & Security

 Browser Privacy
   Enhanced Tracking Protection - No exceptions
   Custom select (Not Standard or strict)
     Choose which trackers and scripts to block
       Checked: 
           cookies (all 3rd-party cookes), 
           tracking content (in all windows), 
           cryptominers, 
           fingerprinters
      Send websites a "Do Not Track" signal - Always
    Cookies and Site Data
    I might be in "permanent private browsing mode" because this box is check
    AND greyed out:
        Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (check, greyed out)
    Logins and Passwords
    Unchecked: Ask to save logins and passwords for websites
    Unchecked: Use a Primary Password
    Forms and Autofill: Checked: Autofill addresses
    History:
       will Use custom settings for history
       Checked: Always use private browsing mode

I turned off all 3 add-ons (HTTPS every, Privacy Badger, Dark Reader) but that didn't help anything.

Firefox 81.0 64-bit Operating System: Windows 10

Please help? I have used Firefox for more than a decade. It is too unreasonable to have to login to email in the Edge browser, get the "code" or whatever, and then switch back to Firefox to login to more secure sites. Switching back and forth repeatedly confuses me and is too dysfunctional for me. I need to resolve this somehow.

Thank you!

I am a Linux user. So I have a folder called .moziila. Firefox use this folder to save settings and so on. If you are a Windows user you also have this folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla.

So I have a folder (Linux) /home/name/.mozilla/firefox/rt7gtt8p.default/ (I will call it System Folder later)

If I would be a Windows user I would have this folder here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default (I will call it System Folder later)

But I want to have a folder called "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder. I had it and I want enable it folder again.

How can I enable "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder? My goal is to have a file called recovery.jsonlz4. Without this folder Firefox will not create recovery.jsonlz4 for me. So I don't have a folder "sessionstore-backups" and I don't have a file called "recovery.jsonlz4" but I want to have it, but how? Maybe I need to add something to about:config?
