since a recent windows update, firefox doesnt acknowledge my normal camera. a few weeks before the update i used a temporary extra camera for a meeting on teams. i normally have meetings with zoom, teams, and a web-based teaching tool. after the update all 3 had switched to the temporary camera, which is not suitable for face-to-face. however zooms and teams offered both cameras and i was able to correct it. however firefox only shows the one (wrong) camera when i access the teaching tool. It does seem to be a browser problem, because the Edge browser does offer both camera. however I do not want to use the Edge or chrome for various privacy related reasons.

Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

Hi there, I really struggle with Reddit when using Firefox Mozilla. Like, if I didn't enjoy reddit so much I'd not bother going on the site altogether because the user experience is so bad when I use Mozilla with it. What am I doing wrong? My speed is fine and every other site works fine with Mozilla Firefox....except Reddit - it's horrible.

Thanks for your help! Best, Christian

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)

My company allows me to update/install FF, but not to access the extensions site (recent change), including in-browser through the Options menu. Nor can I uninstall the latest version, which is useless to me without those extension. Is it possible to copy/paste the extension files from one installation of FF to another and have them still function correctly? If so, where do I find those files?

Hi

I was just looking at my Firefox Account. When I looked at the Devices & apps area I was a little shocked.

I would like to know what device this is please, Web Session, Chrome Mobile 83.

I can see options for Adding a device, Removing a device, but no where can i find to be able to look and see the device details like IP address etc, that other browser providers do.

Can you please provide me with the details, as I have no idea what this is and would like to know.

Hallo, Cookies should by private to one Browser Window. So for example, if I open a second Tab with youtube, or whatever, I would like to have my login data from the first tab. But if I open a second window, this data should not be seen. I don't want other sites to be able to see my login.

The cookies should be deleted, when the Window with all Tabs is closed, independent from other open Browser windows. How can I realize this? Thank you, Michael Lange

In the last few weeks Firefox 77.0.1 opens links just by moving the mouse pointer over them sometimes. Normally you would click or right-click to open in a new tab but often I am having links just open of on their own. I was on the phone with a vendor navigating their site when I kept ending up on a different page. Did something change with this version? The vendor also said they have been having issues with Firefox the last week or so. Using Windows 7sp1 32bit. Thanks

Thank you, My dell laptop win 7 pro, latest firefox, have one cell phone added to device.

Cell phone, android 4.4.4 droid maxx, firefox for android.

When I access two email accounts from my cell phone I go right in with no password.

When I try to access other accounts it asks for a master password, when I enter the password it just goes back to "enter master password", if I hit cancel 4-7 times it will go away and let me in but I have to manually enter password. Reloaded firefox, very few apps,automatic updates.
