Hi, I have Firefox installed running under Windows 10. I have a number of extensions installed including Firefox Containers. I have had to change my router. When I restart my system with the new router connected to the internet and open Firefox I find that I cannot open any websites assigned to personal containers.

I switched back to my old router and everything works ok - I can open all sites including those assigned to containers.

When I switch back to usuing my new router however I again find I cannot access sites assigned to containers - error message is “Secure Connection Failed”.

I’ve removed the Firefox container extension.

Using my old router I can connect to all websites in the normal expected manner - none show they are assigned to Containers.

Using my new router however I still find that having opened Firefox I cannot access any website previously assigned to a Container. If I use another browser (Edge), trying to open a website previously assigned to a Firefox Container simply opens my router home page.

It would appear therefore that despite having removed the Firefox Container extension, when I boot up and connect to the internet via my new router there is still information stored somewhere on my system which is preventing my accessing websites previously assigned to containers.

How do I remove all necessary information from my system so that I can access all websites?

Thanks for your help

Hi! There are multiple recent threads on this issue, and not one of them has a solution, so I'm asking again. I want to increase the font size of the top header text, specifically the bookmarks toolbar, search bar, and tab titles. The text is too small for me to read. It would also be useful if I could increase the font size for the applications menu (the hamburger drop down menu in the far right of the header).

I do not want to increase the size of anything else, so changing layout.css.devPixelsPerPx is not the solution. I have changed my global zoom settings, and set them specifically to "Zoom text only", but this setting does not effect the bookmarks toolbar or the search bar. Changing the default font size also does not increase the size of this text.

Just to clarify again, these threads are not solutions to my question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1214027 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1293358

I use LastPass to manage my passwords. It has worked well with Firefox on a Dell running Windows 10 for several years. For the past week or two the LastPass icon is black meaning not logged in. I enter my email and masterpassword and I see a vault with a spinning wheel for about 30 seconds and then the icon goes black again. No error message. If I click on the icon it shows I need to log in.

I've tried reinstalling the extension but the problem persists.

LastPass works fine for me on the same computer using Chrome for Windows. It also works with no issues when using Safari and Firefox on my Apple Macbook.

Download folder history?

Until recently, whenever I downloaded a file, the Firefox dialogue requesting the destination folder started out at the folder I last used to download a file from that web site. Now it appears to always start in the last used folder, independent of web site. Since I seldom download more than one file at a time from a given web site, this means I have to navigate the directory tree for every download, which makes the whole process take two or three times as long as it used to. Is there any way to restore the old behavior? My searches on the web have only turned up suggestions that are accompanied by responses that say "That didn't work." (Running 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04, if that matters.)

I know there are add-ons that will let me script the download folder selection process, and I'll go that route if I must, but I'm hoping that my preferred browser behavior is still available - "just works" is preferable to "you can beat it into submission if you try hard enough".

I wanted to get an couple new addons to my firefox browser. But whenever I try to get one i get the message 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt' whether I save the file and install it in windows, or trey to install at the firefox addons page. I have done multiple re-installs of the latest browser, cleaned every file out of the system, even joined this community in case I have to get some kind of membership to get addons.

I am out of ideas to solve the problem, and I cannot find anywhere on the internet where the 'Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt'. problem I have is solved. Please help.

I'm trying to load a temporary add-on on my browser, but when I click the button "Load temporary add-on", nothing show up.

I tried to look for errors in the console or debugging tool, but nothing. With snap, I removed with the purge option my Firefox and install it again, but the issue still appears.

My download library window used to display files well over a year old, everything I have saved since the last time I deleted all browser history. Recently, everything older than six months was no longer displayed. The files are still there, I just have to search for them. Now it no longer shows anything older than 4 months. "Show all history" does not work. Is there a way to restore that list?
