About every month or so Firefox decides to delete my login info and i have to relog everywhere again.

While this is not a critical issue, its a very annoying one.

My cookie settings are on standard, and the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" square is unticked. I use Dashlane for my passwords but ive used it for a long time before on mozilla and other browsers and i've never had issues with it.

Trying to bookmark a pdf, it's on the same location across my devices, but my devices have different usernames, so I added "%userprofile%" to the filepath so that it opens on any device. The issue is that when I enter this into the Bookmark URL bar, it automatically sticks "25" next to the % characters, which makes the bookmark unusable.

"C:\Users\%userprofile%\Documents\example.pdf" automatically becomes "file:///C:/Users/%25userprofile%25/Documents/example.pdf"

Also, as I just discovered now when I pasted this URL into this post, a second "25" is inserted, becoming: "file:///C:/Users/%2525userprofile%2525/Documents/example.pdf"

Created second profile (intended for business use) on my USB stick, I thought that naming the profile in create new profile would create a folder of that name in my chosen destination, it didnt, and created the profile in the root directory of my USB stick, I then realised this had not created a new folder with the name I used in the new profile setup, so then removed profile in the profile setup page, and it deleted the whole USB stick!! Doh. Can I recover the data, ie reverse the profile deletion? I have lost a whole load of important stuff.

Hello, I am trying to get FF to keep some cookies for intranet sites, so that I dont need to login all the time when I open some sites on the intranet. Currently I have: Cookies&Site Data: Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed, An entry in "Manage Exceptions" for each server address (e.g. https://host.domain.tld) with "Allow". Privacy&Security: Use custom settings for history, Clear history when FF closes, in "Settings" everything ticked. But I still need to login on all sites after I closed FF.

How can I avoid this logins everytime I open a site?

I have recently updated my site to run off a different hosting provider, and CloudFlare, a long needed change to my site. However, in doing so, my site has become unreachable on my laptop, with firefox (and other browsers) still thinking that my domain is attached to the old nameservers, causing it to redirect to the "site not found" page of my previous hosting provider. I have tried flushing my system's DNS cache, clearing my browser cache, clearing the browser's DNS records, all to no avail, however, I do know my site works, as on my mobile phone with basic Safari, the site works fine.

my system is on Ubuntu 22.04, and running firefox version 107.0

Every time I work on the local environment a lot of my extensions go crazy on localhost, throwing enormous amount of errors. This makes console barely readable. Is there a way to disable messages thrown by extensions in the developer tools of Firefox Developer Edition?

Similar to this in Chrome with "Selected context only": https://superuser.com/a/1346827

Thanks.

Multirow Bookmarks

Hi, everyone. My multirow bookmarks no longer seem to work since my latest update to 107.0 (64 bit). My computer crashed and when it came back up Firefox no longer worked. I reinstalled it and have a bit of cleanup to do, but everything works now except my faithful (up-to-now) multirow toolbar. Here's the code in my userChrome.css file.

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Override max-height */
 min-height: unset !important;
 max-height: unset !important; */

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox:first-child {
   display: block

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems {
   display: flex;
   flex-wrap: wrap

}

Previously, this was in my profile folder. If I move this out of the profile folder, my browser works fine but there is no multi-row toolbar. If I put it back into the profile folder, I have a multi-row toolbar, but no contentd in the main window.

I am perplexed. Help? --elizabeth

OneDrive web (onedrive.live.com) doesn't show any files/folders. The area where the files/folders should be displayed is just empty. Now the reason I believe this might be a Firefox issue is because I don't have that problem when I use OneDrive on a Private window. OneDrive on a Private window works just fine, the issue is on the regular non-private window where I wan't my session to stay open.

I already tried clearing 'everything' including cookies, site settings and offline website data. I checked all the boxes and the issue persist.

See attached screenshot.

Thanks!

I run Firefox Developer Edition.

I recently added some lines to my hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts). Despite these additions, Firefox ignored the hosts file and loaded the pages I had blocked just fine. So I tried a multitude of options like disabling "Enable DNS over HTTPS" and eventually I got to work and the hosts file was respected.

So after thinking about it for awhile, I actually DO want Firefox to ignore the hosts file like it did before I made the change. I reverted the "Enable DNS over HTTPS" setting to its default of enabled, and I've tried everything else I can think of, but I just can't get it to work.

How can I configure Firefox to ignore the system HOSTS file and load blocked pages anyway?

Could really use some help.

As soon as I open Firefox it opens an Audio stream which keeps my laptop awake. How do I disable starting an audio stream when there is no audio?

I'm on Windows 10 Pro using Firefox 107. As soon as I open Firefox it opens and audio stream (I see Firefox show up in the volume mixer). I don't think that is supposed to happen, there is no audio to play I have not even browsed to any website yet. My home page is Firefox default homepage (so no audio there).

I have tried troubleshooting it: opening only a troubleshooting instance of Firefox (nothing else) but again I see the audio stream opening (so that rules out the add-ons right?) I've created a new profile in about:profiles and opened only a Firefox instance on this new profile but again the audio stream opens as soon as Firefox opens.

I have not recently updated my drivers. In the past this did not happen.

Because of this, my laptop never goes to sleep and the battery runs out if I have any instance of Firefox opened.

How can I fix Firefox so it only opens an audio stream when there is audio?

So I downloaded Firefox and logged in expecting my bookmarks to carry over after I "sync'd" it, however the did not. So I went to my old pc and did the export bookmarks thing and imported it to the new pc.

Now.. I have all my bookmarks and everything appears great. Except whenever I open a link from say my work it opens a Mozilla window that doesn't have my bookmarks. When I try to combine the windows It doesn't let me. I am also scared of losing access to the Mozilla with my bookmarks as I work from home using those. (the desktop shortcut to Mozilla opens the one without all my work)

In the attached screenshot things to note, the bookmark bar available on left isn't there on the right. Additionally in the taskbar (bottom) it shows Mozilla in two distinctly separate icons. When two Mozilla windows are open, they share the same icon on the taskbar, these do not, which leads me to believe I have two incompatible versions existing next to each other.

I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

My problem is a new issue with Firefox and CenturyLink. I tried chatting with Century Link and they keep referring me to Firefox so here is the issue. In October I was able to log in to Century Link and view/download my current bill. This month when I try to view the bill all I get is a grey screen and no data. I have been forced to use Microsoft Edge which DOES allow me to view/download the bill. Also, the Chat feature on Century Link via Firefox does not work. It does work in Microsoft Edge. Something in Firefox changed in the past month and I haven't a clue what it is.
