There's a social media website I want to get notifications for so that when I get a couple messages I can quickly respond, however I do not like how when I get a ton of notifications in a short time, it gets annoying and can block parts of the screen. I was wondering if there's any trick that could be done to limit notification frequency without disabling them entirely. I'm on Windows 10 if there's an OS specific solution.

I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.

Firefox locks up, in windows task manager, multiple versions running from start up between 5 and 8, also multiples with Thunderbird 3 to 4. never noticed multiples running before, only looked as it started to lock up/very slow just over a week ago. Ran refresh to return to basics, no change, re installed no change. Might not be Firefox/Thunderbird, but what could cause it.

Twice in the past six months I have downloaded 'upgrades' to the Firefox browser, only then to have to spend half an hour resetting my options - home page, task bars, apps, etc. It's just not worth bothering to get the upgrades. Why do the upgrades mess with my personal settings?

As of 11/21/2021 is there any way to stop detaching and floating videos ? All the searches on the Web produce loads of blogs where the issue is discussed -- but none of it works definitively. A lot of Hot Air and useless comments on the topic. Most point to about:config, which has been shown useless to stop floating videos, in my experience. Have tried every permutation of manipulating relevant config settings according to advice I have found -- nothing works. At the DailyMail.Com you can ad a script to AdBlock and it works -- for one site...

All the search links go in circles and just repeat the same information -- none of which works. Particularly annoying are the CBS affiliate sites with the URL *CbsLocal.com. Element blocking and ad blocking via UBlock and AdBlock does NOT work beyond one page view. It seems the floating video frames are given unique tags each time the page loads so you would have to code every combination of the alpha-numeric identifiers they use. That number is something like equivalent to the number of all the grains of sand on all the beaches in the world, according to my calculator...

If I am directed to manipulate about:config again I think I will scream and pull my hair out. Such a major annoyance and I am to believe there is utterly no way to stop it ? After all these years and the FF developers haven't looked into this ? I find that hard to believe...

The storage of Logins & Passwords needs a new feature. The system lacks the ability to store a Nickname (aka Note/Comment) to each login entry. Some domains are different than the commonly known website name.

For example, the recipe website Cook'n is a section under the URL https://www.dvo.com/. When I search logins for "cook", Cook'n is not shown.

I often try out different linux distros and so by proxy log into firefox on new OS's quite often. The problem im having is that after syncing my FF acc onto a new device it syncs my blank homepage as my new homepage for all my devices and removes my shortcuts. I would very much like to have all my shortcuts synced on all my devices and not have to set them up on all my OS's/New FF sessions (especially my main widows machine that doesn't change). Any tips? I would even take having to set up new shortcuts on my new browsers, i just hate losing the shortcuts on my main desktop.

I removed the 32 bit version of firefox some time ago and installed the Firefox 64 bit version on my larger secondary drive. Firefox recently updated but the update cause the same version of firefox (version 94.0.1 build 20211103134640) into multiple hard-drives (C & D drives) and different folders. There are now multiple icons in my start menu and the task bar for firefox. They BOTH each fight for the default browser setting as if they were different browsers, and only one will open my previous windows and tabs at startup. I only want firefox to be installed on my secondary drive as my C drive has a much smaller capacity. How can I distinguish and remove one of these conflicting multiple copies of Firefox from my PC without loosing my saved tabs or all of my personal data? Why is firefox installing as 2 different apps, on 2 different hard drives, along the same profile path in two different profile folders as shown with "more troubleshooting information" from the help dropdown menu?

I have the same problem as [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/use.../own404410|@Sky] at "[Addons for Normal and Developer Edition separately]". I would like to present the problem from my side and propose a not difficult but useful solution.


"Synced Addons *and settings* for Normal and Developer Edition separately" is a feature I need and require from Mozilla. I don't want to have developer-only extensions and settings from Developer Edition in the normal browser. I also don't want to create a separate account because I won't be able to view Developer Edition browser content on my phone.

The best would still be share search history and bookmarks with both browsers and the phone.

"Synchronization channel selection function and synchronization content" could be a solution. On a normal browser I create a "normal" synchronization channel and there I choose all the elements to be synchronized. On Developer Edition I create a new "developer" channel and choose sync: history, tabs, bookmarks, addons and settings. Additionally, I choose the existing "normal" channel for synchronization of history and bookmarks. And I sync my phone with the normal channel.

Please consider such a feature in Firefox browsers ;)))

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)
