Hi fellows.

I'm using Firefox accounts for long time, to be specific from Created ⁨6/26/2015⁩ as my Firefox account page says at password field, And lately starts to notice that a lot of saved logins and some history are missing. I have checked when oldest Last Modified item, it appears to be from Last modified: October 5, 2018 So, there is at least 3 years of lost data. Is it something normal!! Or its because i have a limited saving i guess. Or apparently logins and history older than 5 years are removed!? Please i want more details about these things, if as i guessed that 5 years old data will be removed, i have to save them in another sources. it maybe an issue in my PC i can fix and get these old data.

Really thank you and appreciate your time. Thank you.

Hello, I am using Firefox 101.0.1 (64-bit) on windows 11 Pro

I am unable to search through tags in firefox address bar as explained here in this documentation https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/address-bar-autocomplete-firefox

with that said, the problem is only with "+ tagname" not working, as I am able to filter through bookmarks using "* bookmark" and history and tabs. However, for tag search with "+", firefox doesn't work.

Kindly help,

Here is some additional information I collected based on other similar issues that might help.

Not, sure if the search byTag function is removed from Firefox or not ??

Hi,

I have a very special problem. I have a Macbook Pro (2012) with MacOS 12.4. The old MacBook Pro is not supported by Apple.

Since the update a few days ago, Firefox won't play all videos (for example vimeo.com, youtube.com (not always)). Some videos will be played.

I tried it with deleted cache and website data, with no luck. I tried it with disabled hardware acceleration also with no luck. It also won't work with a new und empty profile (without any extensions).

The sides are loading the video but the playback won't start. Sometimes I get a spinning loading wheel. I suspect the advertising before the videos. Or it is a problem with graphic-libraries from macos, that do not work propper with my MacBook Pro.

With other browser (Chrome, Safari etc.) all videos will be played.

I now, it was my decision to switch to an unsupported OS on my old computer, but everything works (except for Firefox) and I get two more years security updates. I don't want to switch to another browser. :-(

Best regards Kay

I have tried this with the Troubleshooting option "Temporarily Disable Extensions" and the problem still occurs. Firefox 101.0.1 (64 bit) on Win10, Intel.

To reproduce:

Go to https://www.healthgrades.com/ . Search Carlene Bolen (any name?) in Tulsa, OK. Click on first result. Opens a new tab to https://www.healthgrades.com/providers/carlene-bolen-29brb. So far so good. Click on page. Hit PgDn 3 times, or scroll down quite a ways (to comments). Hit PgUp or attempt to scroll to top of page. Tab goes into infinite loop toggling between "X" and reload symbols on the NAV bar. Also page no longer renders properly and F12 debugger won't open. Firefox process for that Child tab uses 35% of processor, but doesn't show anything unusual in Firefox "Task Manager" process list. Must close both the child tab and the previous Healthgrades parent tab. Eventually the offending Firefox process exits and everything looks normal.

firefox wrongly flags video as geoblocked

Hello Mozilla support

I wanted to view the video at this site -

https://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation/dokus/videos/die-recyclingluege-video-102.html

(The site is German public TV)

Firefox (my default browser) says the video is geoblocked outside Germany, and my DNS proxy will not unblock it.

I tried again with Chrome browser, no problem, the video is not blocked, didn't need the DNS proxy.

Could this be a firefox problem? It seems bizarre - a small proportion of videos from the site are in fact geoblocked, most are available internationally. And always previously, whenever I encountered a blocked video, my DNS proxy would unblock it. But not for this video.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Thanks, Fraidy . (Firefox 101.0.1 64 bit Windows 7)

Hi,

I'm looking for a plugin or website that is able to convert voice to text capability on Firefox. For Chrome there are many solutions (VoiceNote II, Voice Recognition, Dictanote). And I need to use it on firefox.

In firefox, as I think, permissions settings/UI haven't yet been sorted out however, so permission can't be granted to use it by the user, so it can't be used.

Thank you!

Is there a way to enable certain extensions such as BlockSite when at work (9-5, lets say)? Or for example -- more specific to my usecase right now -- the Unhook extension should be disabled after work and during weekends? Basically setting extension on/off times based on time of the day -- like iOS allows to set focus modes and then "allowed apps" during these modes.

The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time
