I'm trying to use multi-account containers to use twitter and other sites from accounts unique to the container.

For twitter, if I select a container, a new tab opens with the twitter login page in that container. If I try to login, another tab opens in that container, with the login page. So, I can never log in.

Is there a solution?

As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.

Exporting passwords: I'm being asked for my Windows 10 password but I don't have one set

I'm using Firefox 113.0.2. I want to export my logins and passwords, but when I click the 'export' option, a Windows Security window opens asking for my Windows login. I don't have a Windows login set (no one else has access to my PC).

According to Firefox's own info, if you don't have a Windows password, the dialog asking for one shouldn't pop up.

I can't get past this and I've googled everything in sight. Does anyone else have a solution to this?

Thank you! Averill

Hello, I've been trying to use my Firefox browser for the past week and nothing I do seems to work. Whenever I click the icon on my Windows desktop, it sends me the following Mozilla Crash Report:

We're Sorry

Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report.

I've restarted my computer and tried to change multiple settings, but the same pop up message keeps appearing. I've checked the box that sends the crash to Mozilla and clicked the button that says Restart Firefox, but still nothing. There's also a "Detail" button that provides a bunch of information that I'm not sure how to interpret haha but I can try to copy that if you think it would be helpful.

I would appreciate any help. I'm looking to get a new computer (not sure if that is part of the issue), but I'm really hoping to be able to save the bookmarks I had.

Thank you.

I don't like Firefox videos showing up in my media player controls, so I turned off media.hardwarekeys.enabled, but it doesn't seem to do anything anymore. I'm pretty sure it used to work at some point, don't know when it stopped working. Even though I have it turned off, videos still appears in the Media Player on my panel, and I can play and pause them with the play/pause button on my keyboard. I have also tried disabling dom.media.mediasession.enabled, but that doesn't help either.

I've installed a new version of Ubuntu Linux and - as recommended on this page's FAQs - backed up my firefox profile, than copied it into the profile folder on the new os. Now Firefox tells me "You've launched an older version of firefox" and forces me to create a new profile :( Also loading the old profile in "about:profiles" leads to the same result

How can i restore at least my passwords? (When i try to copy only 4.db and logins.json from the old to the new profile, i get the same result)

I can't find an "import old profile"-function anywhere...

Hi,

I have a policies.json file that acts as a white list for me (black listed all urls and then white listed needed urls). I was wondering is it possible to create a second .json file that will act as a black list. I want to give access to a partial admin. user to the policy.json file to be able to edit the file and add websites if needed but I want a another black list running as well to block out specific websites (this one the partial admin. will not have access to).

So to start off the first question would be is firefox only limited to one .json file for policies or can you have multiple .json files (I want to call the second file blacklist.json)? Btw I use Debian and Firefox-esr.

Thanks.

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1414653]
I wasn't sure which category to choose. Youtube videos have a spinning with the message to try system restart if playing won't begin but it never does. The videos play fine in Opera and as far as Firefox itself, I have no problems with any other websites. I am unable to perform gymnastics in order to resolve this, but it's quite bothersome. Thank you.

Edit: Sorry, I posted this once already but am frustrated and can't figure out how to delete this one. I have not gone through starting in safe mode, etc.

Last week, mid-day one day, videos on YouTube suddenly all had a warm cast --yellowish for color, cream/beige for B&W. I have researched the issue as I can. It is not my Windows night light; my drivers and PC are apparently all updated; everything is working fine. I checked to see if the same happened with Vimeo videos and it did. I'm running W10.

   Interestingly, the pop-up thumbnails one gets when hovering over the timeline as not affected; they look fine.
   One post by someone else was answered that it was a GPU driver issue; another said it's only with HD videos.
   I'm a B&W photographer and would really like to get back to normal again. 
   Any ideas?
