Hi, not sure what I'm doing wrong, but my logins and passwords simply will not synch between devices. I principally use a desktop Win10 machine, and an iOS version of Firefox. Have double-checked settings on both devices, tried forcing a manual sync from each to the other, all to no avail. Any ideas on what I need to do differently? TIA.

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

My problem is simple. I'm trying to use this supermarket website (continente.pt) and the website doesn't load up the images of the products. I have to reload a bunch of times until it finally does. I switched from Google chrome but apparently it was a big mistake, never thought Firefox was so crap. BTW, It's not my adblocker, turned off Enhanced tracking protection and cleared cookies. Nothing works. (on annex I show firefox and google chrome being used on the same website)

Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

FF keeps replacing

http://mysite.domain.net:3344 with httpS://mysite.domain.net:3344

whatever I try to fix this behavior. Thing is that I own this server and there ever was't any SSL implemented. I mean this - never.

Other browsers (Chromium, Chrome, Opera) don't take such a forcing action, website opens like a charm. Why FF thinks it knows better which URL I really want to open?

I already googled _a lot_ in order to find solution, but no one worked.

Setup: Debian 11 Mate no proxy and no separate "internet security" stuff on laptop (other browsers with default settings confirm that) FF 102.11.0 ESR 64 no addons (all switched off)

already tried: browser.urlbar.autoFill false browser.cache.check_doc_frequency 1 network.stricttransportsecurity.preloadlist false browser.fixup.fallback-to-https false dom.security.https_first false

What else I could do to stop this madness? Thank you in advance for any help

Running v104.0.2. (UK) Whenever I have an 'email box', I get an autofill email address appearing I wish to delete. When I highlight the address, and hit 'delete' it doesn't work. On searching a method, I get the suggestion to go into settings and drill down in the 'Forms & Autofill' section in 'privacy' settings, but my FireFox has no such section.

I then tried to 'activate' the section by going into 'about:config' and changing 'extensions.formautofill.available' from, 'detect', to 'on', it made no difference, I still have no 'Forms & Autofill' section in settings.

How can something so simple be so complicated?

Firefox Extensions Not Showing On Toolbar

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

Ever since updating to the current version of Firefox (112.0 64-bit, according to the settings), every time I close the browser, I'm logged out of every single service I'd been logged into. This was not an issue with previous versions of the browser, and old forum posts on the subject don't seem to contain correct, up-to-date information. Is there some setting I'm missing, that I need to update?

It worked nicely for many years, until today. I installed Supraland from Steam, played for a couple of hours, and suddenly my Youtube page went glitchy - not the layout but minor elements were getting scrambled, especially text. I'll attach a couple of pictures to show it. In fact, all pages glitch if their content changes even a little. As of typing now, I see the glitches, with a word or another getting butchered. Gifs and videos are full of that.

Windows 10, the current update, Radeon RX 580, the recommended AMD drivers installed (and reinstalled again and again, 23.11.1)

I think I did pretty much everything with Firefox. Disabling hardware acceleration fixes it (but then of course the browser goes slow). Games work fine, including Talos Principle 2 which is intense enough. The clean install, reinstall and all that. I'm writing from the beta stable build now. I've tried to regress to the previous versions too.

It strictly coincides with the game installation but I have no close backups - who knew that some game might just do that. Then, of course, I tried to uninstall it too.

Thoughts?

I am using Firefox Developer Edition in a work environment that only saves directories between weekly restarts by explicitly managed rules. As a result of some missing folders from my weekly restarts, I need to sign in to my Firefox account and enable sync each week. Currently my machine retains the %APPDATA%/Mozilla and %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mozilla directories + children.

What other directories are needed by Firefox Developer Edition in Windows to retain the user profile/syncing, et. al.?

Thank you for your time!

Firefox updated yestarday. I see these changes: extension are gone, theme settings were switched from Dark to Light, "Startup -> Open previous windows and tabs" option went from checked to unchecked. These things are still fine: bookmarks, saved passwords and history. Tried reverting to older Firefox version, but it didn't help so I installed the new one again. I then checked profiles in AppData folder and I see three of them. The problematic one I just described, the one that was automatically created when I tried to downgrade to previous Firefox version and the one which only contains empty "parent.lock" file. There is nothing useful in "Extensions" folders (first profile has addblock extension file which I just installed, second profile has langpack extension file). I don't particularly care about which specific extensions I used since I can just reinstall them when I need them again, but one of those extensions contained custom written scripts which were running on specific sites to help me with my work. Those scripts are what I really want to recover.

Using Firefox version 102:

Open console tools and navigate to Network tab Right click on a POST request "Edit and Resend" is no longer an option? There is still the resend option Clicking resend allows you to edit the request, but unfortunately the "Content-Length" attribute is not automatically updated like it was with edit and resend, so all requests fail after being edited. This is because the Content-Length header indicates the size of the message body, in bytes, sent to the recipient. When you add or removes bytes in a JSON request for example, it doesn't get updated. The attribute can also not be manually set. How can I use version 102 to edit and resend requests the same way I used to?

Thank you.
