bold texti had to reinstall windows and had trouble remembering my password and had no idea that resetting the password would refresh or wipe clean all my saved tabs and passwords. This is aster-nine to think you browser gave no warning that this would happen.. I need my links, my tabs, password. No I had no other sync's, don't think I ever set a key. This is straight up stupid. I need to recover my account!!bold text

Yes, I know I was only just complaining about all my logins being lost when I start firefox. This is (to me) a different question.

Ok, I get it, security is important and remaining logged in is usually a good idea. But as I am one person and it is my machine......

But there is a twist to this.

Places like shops / e-bay / amazon / etc.....

I log into them, do my stuff, and close the tab/window.

The log ins are kept.

(Side story) I seldom / never "quit" Firefox. As is, I turn on the machine. If/when needed I start firefox and that's that. When I'm done I just shut down the machine. (firefox still "running".)

Next time I turn on and start firefox, things are as I left them.

That is the ideal situation for me.

I've since discovered that there are a few ways to "exit" firefox.

FILE/QUIT quits firefox. Menu/QUIT does the same. But if I go through and close the windows: that's a whole other story. Likewise if I go out of firefox, RMB on the icon and say QUIT.

So, how do I make sure that if/when I close a tab (I'll keep it at that level as that is what is logged into the site, not necessarily the window) the cookies are wiped?

In the settings/privacy / TRACKING I have CUSTOM set, with all the boxes ticked. DO NOT TRACK is set to ALWAYS Alas (due to local reasons) I have Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode set.

What am I missing? Thanks in advance.

After the last Firefox update, i am trying to open youtube.com in my Firefox browser but it's not letting me to do it. Every time i open it shows an error and says that the error is from YOUTUBE and FIREFOX or I can do nothing about it. But the funny part is its working on other browsers like chrome.

Today firefox prompted me to "refresh" itself. After doing so, the icon is now blank and won't open saying it's damaged or incomplete. I restarted my mac to see if it might come back, but I continue to get the same error message that firefox is damaged or incomplete.

I downloaded firefox again, but didn't replace the original one on my computer and while it works. I've lost ALL my bookmarks. I waded through ways to get them back but don't believe I ever made a manual copy of my bookmarks.

Is there any way to restore them? I hadn't used a firefox account before either but just made one today.

Thanks

Evening, all.

It's very rare I ask for help on ANY fora, if I'm honest. I can almost always sort out my own issues, especially with browsers. However, this one has stumped me.

I've noticed that, on any website where user interaction requires use of a microphone, the Linux build of Firefox only ever offers "source_default_name" for choice of microphone. Well, OK; I can see this being fine for the vast majority of folks who use a laptop; the built-in microphone WILL be the "default" microphone, no questions.

My question is this; what do those of us running desktop PCs do about microphone selection, hmm? A desktop PC doesn't HAVE a "built-in, default microphone", does it? By their very nature, any microphone you're going to use with a desktop is going to be an externally plugged-in device. I have three of these; a USB microphone.....a wireless headset, and the twin stereo mikes on a Logitech c920 webcam.

Do I get anything resembling a drop-down list to choose what I want to use? Uh-uh. Firefox - apparently! - doesn't "see" any of them. Not individually. All I ever see is "source_default_name".....

Grrrr...!!

C'mon, guys! Frankly, this is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. Linux, to the best of my knowledge - unlike Windoze - doesn't make 'global' device settings, which every application then uses. It's always been far more fine-grained than that, allowing individual device use on a per-app basis. But that only works if the 'app' in question allows those choices to be made.

Any Chromium-based "clone" - and I use several of these, as I package portable versions for the Puppy Linux community - will give a full drop-down list of every available device it can find. Why can't the Linux builds of Firefox do the same?

I shall be interested to see what, if any, replies I get to this question. It's been bugging me for years...!

Mike.

M1 Mac, Macos 12.4

After installing Firefox 102.0 neither of my computers will open Reddit pages. As far as I can tell, all other sites appear to work normally and Reddit functioned before the Firefox update. I restarted Firefox, restarted my computers, deleted Firefox and Reddit history and cache ... nothing so far has solved the problem. Reddit works as expected in Safari.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated!

I'm running version 102 of Firefox on Windows 11 Home version 21H2 OS build 22000.739 and can no longer log into my investment account at ally.com. Right after I key in my username and password, I get the following error. I can use Microsoft Edge and Brave browsers to successfully log in to my account but I only use Firefox.

The last time I successfully signed into my Ally Invest account using Firefox was probably a few weeks ago but I'm not sure of the date. I have attached a picture of the error I receive from Ally.

Thanks,

Gary Siwicki
