Why Mozilla is not adding 'Save as PDF' in Firefox like in Chrome or Opera? I saw many discussion forums: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212834, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1211433 . But none of them, helped me. They said that it needs an add-on. But the question arises - Why Mozilla is not adding this feature?. I have got some api(s) too (If it helps any Firefox Developer to build the feature in Firefox and give it in future releases. See this api: https://pdfcrowd.com/doc/api/ . There is an open source too : https://wkhtmltopdf.org/ . Please add them I beg your pardon !

Lots of sensitive stuff in places.sqlite file.

%AppData%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\*|places.sqlite

It stores favorite icons, input history, keywords, and browsing history (a record of visited pages). I like to wipe this file since it holds lots of sensitive data, but deleting this file will also delete the bookmarks. I think bookmarks should be stored in a separate file.

Every day we open web site and enter username, password and push button login (or using autofill). It take 10 - 15 sec. per site and annoying step every day or week we enter again and again and push login. Firefox may resolve that issue simple replace by automatic way by provide "User profile" ideology.

For example web site want to register new user and ask JavaScript to provide information. Firefox popup window like it now doing with audio, subscription and other feature. User select "User profile" and security rights (bio. address, payment) and no more.

This approach already provided in some Apple iPhone application you reinstall application and application get you Apple ID account and provide access to you account.

Using web site now it simple we no more login and password and already using accounts store in FireFox accounts.

P.S. How about Web Autorization API it is complete or is still draft?

I really love the new picture-in-picture option. It's especially helpful when I only have one monitor. There are a couple of rough-edges I'd like to see tweaked.

1. I resize these windows all the time to put them where they'll fit when I'm doing something else, and it can finicky to resize the window quickly. It would be helpful if the areas you can grab the edges and corners of were exaggerated. For example, if when the user's mouse is near an edge or corner of the picture-in-picture window a handle pops-up around the given area that's larger than the 1pixal-ish default handle area. I've seen similar functionality in the art program GIMP for selection boxes.

2. The way the window acts when being resized isn't very intuitive. The corners work as expected, but since the corner areas are so small I often grab the sides and that can get frustrating. I now know that when grabbing the Bight and Bottom sides of the window the Top-Left corner is anchored while resizing. Similarly, when grabbing the Left and Top sides of the window the Bottom-Right corner is anchored. That seems pretty intuitive when I type it out, what's the issue? Well, the problem comes when you are grabbing the window near the corners. If for example, I'm trying to grab the window by the Bottom-Left corner and miss (which I've done plenty) and grab the Bottom of the window. Now when I resize the window is anchored in the Top-Left instead of the Top-Right, which is the opposite of what I wanted and leads to some confusion and repositioning. What I would suggest, separate from the #1 solution, would be to break the sides of the window into three areas: Near-corner 1, Center, and Near-corner 2. When grabbing the window on the edge in one of the Near-corner areas, anchor the window at the opposite corner. When grabbing by the center of an edge anchor the window by the opposite center.

Thank you for reading my long suggestion. I hope you don't find this to be a negative interaction. I truly enjoy Firefox, and I've very excited about your new Picture-in-picture feature. I hope you understand that this level of nit-picking can only come from a place of love!

P.S: I'm very pleased to say that I did not include a third issue I had with the Spacebar Play/Pause functionality not working unless the Play button was the last object clicked on the window, because in the latest update it was gone! I want to thank whomever worked on that and let them know, someone did notice, and they appreciate it! <3 <3

So I have a desktop PC with 2 accounts, one to keep work organized and the other for casual PC-things. I also have a laptop which I use for schoolwork. I am signed into the same FF account on all of these.

Now I have accumulated a different set of bookmarks on all of those windows users, for understandable reasons, but there are also some general use ones that I have tried to sync to all of these. The sync however brings everything.

Here is my main question: Is there a feature present or maybe in development that would allow me to select which bookmarks to Sync, say, by folder or smth?


Also I would like to know this about the nature of the Sync options: If I tick the "Bookmarks" in the Sync options, it takes that user's bookmarks and pushes them into the sharing process, correct? Does the selection affect what is Synced INTO the current user? As in does the selection work as a simultaneous push/pull for the bookmark data or is just one or the other? The direction of sync isn't really clear on the options.

This is for the mozilla firefox developers: I wonder why firefox is getting less and less customizable by default as it was in earlier days. Now with Firefox 65 again you repeadedly change a lot so we have to look around for new tuning tips again, that is no fun!

Please, implement a customize option to get the Tabs bar on Bottom (under the bookmarks toolbar) without having to tune the chrome.css, also tab height and width should be customizable for everyone. For all users. Also the functions how tabs and links open is too less so we always have to install addons or tune about:config if possible. Like: - New tabs from all entries url bar, searchbar, bookmarks - open tab (also new ones) next to current

Firefox should be different from chrome and other browsers and should give the user more options to customize. Thanks Claudy


Thanks

Firefox Monitor: support for email addresses with arbitrary plus sign tags

Whenever i create an account anywhere, i use an email address with a tag unique to the service appended to the end. For instance, the email address I used here is firstname.lastname+mozillasupport@gmail.com. I do this to be able to automatically put incoming emails in various buckets, and also to be able to mute emails from specific senders or see which services sell my address on to spam spewers.

In firefox monitor, this creates a problem, because as far as Firefox is concerned I use hundreds of different email addresses, whereas in reality they are all the same address just with different tags.

So I would be massively helped by the following feature: When you add an email address to Firefox Monitor, there is a checkbox that says "Include address variations". When adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the checkbox checked, any variation of that email address should also be considered added, e.g. firstname.lastname+dropbox@gmail.com firstname.lastname+netflix@gmail.com firstname.lastname+hbo@gmail.com

Bonus feature: Support for service specific quirks - the checkbox would also be aware of quirks various email providers have. E.g. for gmail addresses the dots are optional. So when adding the address firstname.lastname@gmail.com with the aforementioned checkbox checked, the address would also match firstnamelastname@gmail.com.

Hello,

I'm using Containers and am able to log into different gmail accounts simultaneously.

However, I'm curious as to whether or not it would be possible to link a specific account to a specific container? (e.g., my work email automatically logs into the work container, same for personal email).

I use LastPass, but would Firefox passwords work to make this process more automatic? I set "Gmail" to automatically open in my "work" container, but it takes me to the landing page and requires me to sign-in every time.

Perhaps, I should just stop clearing my history/cookies and just hide the containers instead so the data is saved and I remain logged in. I am curious if there is another solution that I'm overlooking. (I would be down to help build one, too!)

Sorry for the title/question name.

I have used FF for a long time now. A **LONG** time ago, I could install an addon which is since not supported.

Some of the things I miss which I would like to see added to FF: Although there is now an "Open in new tab" option it is still a bit short of offerings.

1 - "Open in new tab and switch" 2 - Add names to tabs. Sometimes it would be nice to search for a tab with a more appropriate name. 3 - (Though maybe asking a bit too much) Coloured tabs. Un-loaded, Loaded but not active, *THIS* tab. Though *THIS* tab is sort of easy to see, when I am researching something and have a lot of tabs open seeing "where" (which) tab is the active one is handy. Explination of the three colours: -- Un-loaded - (When loading a previous session) This tab is not yet loaded. -- Loaded but not active - You have been to this page this time, but it is not the active tab. -- *THIS* - well, just so it is easy to separate from the other loaded tabs.

Current containers allow us to seperate browsing history to some parts. But it's not enough for privacy at work in practice. For e.g. you can search something and suddenly it can suggest you a site from personal or something else nsw etc. Also the new tab highlights are combined with personal and work and the others. But if the containers converted to multi-profiles we could also use seperate browsing, customizing, etc. Unfortunately for this reason I have to use two Firefox Account. :/ and also unfortunately I can't use Firefox Lockwise, because my passwords seperated two Firefox accounts and I can only set one Firefox Account on my mobile phone. :/

If multi-profiles can set and switch easily on one Firefox Account, that would be awesome! Thanks in advance.
