Hello. I use firefox on my pc. I created master password to work on few pc-s. But what is the point of it, since when I enter mozilla, it asks me to enter it, but I can only close this window and just access anything. Is there a way to have a password that would stop other people using my firefox?

thanks

Every time a website with audio plays in Firefox version 81.0 (64-bit), a pop-up window (similar to the one in the attached screenshot) appears in the upper left corner of the screen. This never happened in previous versions of Firefox. I haven't found a way to disable it, if that's even possible--which I hope it is. The pop-up is not a major inconvenience, just an annoyance, because it disappears after 3-5 seconds or so. Nonetheless, I'd like to be rid of it altogether.

I refreshed my firefox a few minutes ago and the only way I can describe it now is broken. Many page elements won't load such as images on some sites, and in the example I give here, the dark theme slider on YT doesn't show up at all. when I open the sidebar, the rest of the page becomes completely white. And the page is supposed to already be in dark theme. I am using the windows version. Can anybody help with this?

How to restore folder sessionstore-backups in folder .mozilla

I am a Linux user. So I have a folder called .moziila. Firefox use this folder to save settings and so on. If you are a Windows user you also have this folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla.

So I have a folder (Linux) /home/name/.mozilla/firefox/rt7gtt8p.default/ (I will call it System Folder later)

If I would be a Windows user I would have this folder here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default (I will call it System Folder later)

But I want to have a folder called "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder. I had it and I want enable it folder again.

How can I enable "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder? My goal is to have a file called recovery.jsonlz4. Without this folder Firefox will not create recovery.jsonlz4 for me. So I don't have a folder "sessionstore-backups" and I don't have a file called "recovery.jsonlz4" but I want to have it, but how? Maybe I need to add something to about:config?

Hello,

Since the new release version of firefox. There is a extra theme installed and I can't remove it because I don't like it. I'm using Thematic extention to rotate between my theme's that i like. I have looked in the menu to remove it manually, but the selection isn't there. The added picture shows the only option I have (it's in dutch) and that is manage. So how can I remove or relocate it.

Greetings,

Hello,

I'm getting the following message:

« Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to XXX@XXX.org was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account. No longer own that email? Create a new account »

I can connect to this support using the account, but not using sync on my devices.

My mail is a valid email address, and there was some temporary problem with the mail server which explains why the mail was returned.

What can I do to get back my account? The « let us know » link leads me here.

Thanks,

Hey Guys! can we dedicate a physical buttons to toggle between zoom levels when pressed. As of now I can tap a handy soft button up inside the search bar that set's the zoom level to a predefined value of 170%. but what if we need two of those without a predefined values, so we can determine the zoom level for each one of them with a value of our choice. in Firefox browser. Thanks a lot for the great efforts.

Sorry to be a pain but I am still having problems with the "Autofill logins and passwords" setting. Yesterday I had two replies but one was way over my old head. I got so far but then I was at a loss as to which files it would be safe to try and delete so I didn't delete any. The other reply was easier to understand but alas it also didn't work. I tick the "ask to save logins and passwords" and the "Autofill logins and passwords" boxes and after I do this all works fine. However if I leave my Firefox browser for any reason and then re-login to Firefox these settings, along with "Remember History" have all been deleted so that I then have to tick and alter these settings again. Now for the other strange part Firefox on my android phone is synced with my desktop Firefox and I don't have any problems, all logins and passwords work fine. I have up to date Windows 10, Firefox version 81 and the latest TREND maximum anti-virus protection. I have tried exiting TREND and doing a restart of Firefox with add-ons disabled and that makes no difference. Finally I even uninstalled Firefox and managed to install an earlier version and that didn't solve the snag either so I have updated to the latest version again.

Reading the several comments on this subject has not led to a solution. The Firefox Setup 81 and Installer are sitting in the downloads file, but when I click either "Open" or "Run as Administrator" I get a Windows "For security and performance Windows 10 in S mode...." followed by two options "Learn more" or "Switch out of S mode". When I choose the latter the "Switch out of S mode" page arrives. Now what? Thanks.
