I just bought a new computer and want to sync my firefox bookmarks, tabs etc. I am trying to sync and it is asking for my phone number. I have a Mexican phone number but my internet company uses a U.S. Ip address. When I enter my number it says it is invalid. I have tried several ways. Can I finish the sync with this number? I don't actually need it synced to my device. I don't have firefox on my device (iphone)

Hello,

I am aware how to define what happens, when I click a link leading to a "normal" file extension like PDF, etc. But what can I do with "custom" extensions (.vzf)?

When I click a link leading to a .vzf file, it opens it as text, instead of downloading it. I would love to be able to define that firefox downloads these files, instead of always clicking "save target as".

Thanks a lot!

Best regards Clemens

After a power failure in my area while I was online, my Firefox is now giving me "Network protocol error", half loading pages, seldom loading images, slow streaming on YouTube, and "problem loading page"(s).

I am advised by Firefox to inform the website owners but this is surely a Firefox browser problem, not a problem with Google or Facebook or YouTube or any website.

I am on Linux Mint 17. something on a 64bit system.

How does this get fixed?

I have Firefox 65.0.1, which is the latest version for my OS; however, I keep getting warnings that I need to update, which financially I can’t do. Why is this

This message is appearing every time that I open Firefox. If I have the last version for my OS, which I admit is an old version but I can't afford to spend $1000+ to upgrade all the software on my computer for a new OS Version. Money that I don't have! (The OS is low or no cost but everybody wants money for an upgrading the other software I have, and need, on my computer. Plus I'd have to spend hours of my time getting all of that software setup and running, which isn't free. (No I don't bill myself for that time, but I can't do the other things that I need to be doing when I'm futzing around with resetting up my computer. For a computer that is over 5 years old it might not be cost effective to install a new OS.)

Situation: I need to find several articles that I viewed about the same time.

Since I try not to delete my history, I have many, many items.

So I scroll through my history, often for several minutes, find the first article. I click it.

YOUR SOFTWARE TAKES ME BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF MY HISTORY AND I HAVE TO START ALL OVER AGAIN.

Please fix this.

I have a new ubunutu 16.04 machine which I recently connected to my workplace domain where multiple users login to the same machine with there workplace account names. When a user login to the machine it logins successfully but when try to open firefox get this message

your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible

I tried some suggested solutions:

sudo chmod -R 777 .mozilla/ rm -rf ~/.mozilla/ rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla/ https://askubuntu.com/a/314915/304905

I tried all these but nothing worked. I wonder how I can fix this permanently from my machine local admin account so that when a new user logins to the machine for the first time firefox works without problems and without him having to do something?

Dear Firefox team,

I use Saved Logins and today after firing up my computer and Firefox, all my logins disappeared. I did not change my password so it should be business as usual. I resynced my laptop with my phone and still nothing appears in my desktop Firefox.

I have collected a lot of logins and should all be there, not sure what to do. I use Ubuntu 18.04 as an OS.

Thanks!

The only way I can prevent the following event is to run FF 65.0.1. (W7-64) as an Administrator. Is there any way around this? My other computers running FF 65.0.1 under W7-64are running fine. UAC says that FF does not require elevation.

I've tried restoring FF, disabling all the extensions, running in safe mode, all to no end.

If it's a clean install that's required, can I accomplish that and still preserve bookmarks, profiles, etc?

Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 65.0.1.6981, time stamp: 0x5c621ad0 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 6.1.7601.24354, time stamp: 0x5c3565b8 Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x000000000002d196 Faulting process id: 0x2048 Faulting application start time: 0x01d4c998e0645f3f Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 224b3cc3-358c-11e9-a0fc-005056c00008

Hi,

I'm trying to use Babel through Firefox. It requires access to my mic. Clicking on the drop down menu on the address bar seems to indicate that permission is "allowed temporarily", however, the website is not detecting any input. I checked in the system settings of my laptop and I have the internal microphone selected, and within those settings, I can see that it is detecting sound.

When I view Permissions > Microphone > Settings..., it shows a dialogue box "the following websites have requested access to your microphone..." However, there are no websites populating that list.

Is there something I'm missing here?

Thanks,

Will
