Hi, I would like to ask a question about one of the add-on's for Mozilla browser, it's about FVD Speed Dial. I did not save any speed dials I did have. it worked normally all day, and suddenly I cannot use it nor save my settings to import to another speed dial because it's disabled by Mozilla for security reasons I will attach a screenshot. Is there any way I can recover my speed dial? Are they located on my PC by any chance, I cannot find them in any Mozilla folders? Would be really great if you could help me with this.

Thank you. Violeta

My speed dial disappeared today. I have business logins saved by speed dial so I am a bit desperate. I have restarted both firefox and the computer. I think I was not home when speed dial disappeared. I dont understand computers very well, I have mac OS 11.2.3. I don't know whether firefox was updated without my knowledge today. I have time machine and regular backups.

Hello, After automatic update of FF to version 94.0.2 and restart of program started my problems. Since that time browser is not working properly. Program starts but will not load homepage or will not show any webpage after putting its URL and enter key. Also no setting is possible to show. Seems like browser is not connected to internet. But if I look in menu of FF " about application Firefox" there is shown that program is searching update and will show me message "you are using last version". I tried renew installation, uninstall and reinstall Firefox but without success. Also tried to install older version but without success. All other web browsers installed in PC are working correctly. Can somebody help me solve this problem please? Thank you

I just had to disable my speed dial FVsomething and Eversync because I found out that it was spyware! Firefox tried to tell me this and disabled it but I put it back, and then my husband checked it out and found out about the spyware on it. I'm bereft. I've used that speed dial for years and it's been such a big help for me. I had over 100 dial all set up.

So my question is, what speed dial can I use in Firefox? Everything I checked out isn't monitored so what do I do?

Help!

Under: about:config browser.taskbar.lists.recent.enabled false

I have just made a Windows 10 system and I am not understanding the features now existing that weren't with Firefox on my Win7. I have turned the 'Frequent' off and now right clicking the Firefox icon produces 10 'Recent' listings. Being that I've changed FF's config to false, I do not know how to make these 10 'recent's permanently disappear. Right clicking one of these entities and removing only replaces with another.

Please help me to permanently remove 'Recent' from my right click of the Firefox icon in my taskbar.

Where Does Firefox Store Locations of Used Websites?

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

Hi,

I was wondering if you have ever considered offering perks to loyal members.

I have been with Mozilla since 1998.(dropped Netscaped). Firefox is still my default browser on my phone and PC. I just installed Relay today. Found the $1.00us kind of odd. I believe it costs more to process. Be nice to see that waved for a 23 yr member.

Love you all Michele

BBc websites have shrunk on my firefox browser.They are unusable since pcs dont have touch screens. Since Chrome is Ok and other sites Ok. I think either the bbc or firefox have changed something to make them incompatable. The BBc weren't paricularly helpful. The chap on the telephone help line told me to go on line (unusable) or contact my computer manufacturer (me). I did not know Chrome was working OK, at the time. I am ok for the moment I will have to use Chrome and not use my desk top links.

Recently upgraded to Windows 11 and using Firefox 94.0.1.

Yesterday for no apparent reason all web pages I tried to connect to returned "Unable to connect". I thought it was my internet connection but when I tried MS Edge it worked?

I have tried a few of the things suggested - Refreshing Firefox and changing the prefetch but no joy.

MS Edge is still working fine. The image shows 3 pages with Problem Loading. Where to next?

I am using:

  • Mozilla Firefox 94.0
  • Linux Mint 20.2
  • Linux Kernel 5.4.0-90-generic

In Firefox, the issue is with

  • Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks
  • Tools > Downloads
  • History > Show All History

If I have opened Bookmarks then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` , nothing happens . My expectation in the Bookmark Window will come on top.

This is true for Download and History window as well.

If I have opened Bookmarks / Download / History then for some reason minimized the window , or clicked somewhere so the Bookmarks / Download / History window is in the background , and I again click `Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks` or `Tools > Downloads` or `History > Show All History` nothing happens . My expectation in the Menu option I clicked, its Window will come on Top.

Just to be clear I have even tried by clicking `Always on Top` on the Bookmarks / Download / History window.

Why this is not happening?
