I recently installed the firefox extension for multi-account. I edited some of the containers, and added websites that i want to be opened by default in the containers. When i synced with my other laptop the containers didnt remain edited. Is this feature not supported by the multi- account add on? will I need to create the containers again on each device i have?

Digging through documentation a bit, I haven't been able to find how to edit the list of domains set to always open in specific containers. Is there a good way to do this? My primary use case is for domains which quickly redirect you elsewhere, e.g. to track statistics on external links from a site.

The article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers suggests that there is the following feature: “Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container.” I installed the extension Firefox Multi-Account Containers version 6.0.0, but I do not see this feature in the about:preferences#containers or in the context menu of a tab.

Copied from a duplicate question:

I often open links in emails (Mozilla Thunderbird) and from command line. Links need to go to different containers. Is it possible to choose a container before a web page is downloaded?

Hi guys. Let's say you are moving to a new workstation. How do you transfer Multi-Account Containers between computers? Does it transfer with your Firefox Account Sync? Will it transfer all of the accounts or just your primary account?

Firefox always asking to answer puzzles on Recaptcha

I've installed the latest version of Firefox. Firefox Quantum 63 x64 and ReCaptchas don't work properly. It has been installed on a fresh Windows 10 Pro and Firefox it's at the same time a fresh install like I'm showing on the video at the end of this post. No firewall, no antivirus, no addons, nothing that should stop Firefox from automatically do the ReCaptcha. But every time you click on I'm not a Robot it always prompts you to do a puzzle.

Please Firefox, fix this issue. It is pretty frustrating to have to answer every time a puzzle that are ridiculously annoying or having to switch to Google Chrome to use those kind of pages that ask you to answer a ReCaptcha.

However, if there is anyone that has a solution, please share it with me or all of us. Because I've been trying to find an answer and haven't find one that works. So I will appreciate a good fix for it.

Thanks in advance to the community and hopefully Firefox finds a fix because for what I've read it's a persistent issue with other older versions too.

Just installed the containers extension, but when selecting the containers icon, selecting a container type will not open a new tab. Also, in the current tab section at the top of the menu, I cannot check or uncheck the "Always open in Default" selection. Any ideas of whats causing this problem? Thanks.

Another solution waiting for a problem ... How can one suppress the option for "Container Tabs?"

And to add insult to injury, it appears where "Open Link in New Window" used to be. I don't use tabbed browsing. Period. I like to hover over the taskbar and let Windows tell me that browser window's URL.

If it can't be suppressed -- because each Firefox user doesn't really know _their_ own preferences -- why not place the "Container Tabs" right-click entry, below "Open Link in New Private Window"? Then users desiring to use such *new* functionality, will learn (muscle-memory don'cha know) it as they go.

Every time y'all force me after an update to figure out how to resume using Firefox in the matter to which I'm accustomed, I move one step closer to shifting to Chrome entirely. (I still use Firefox to access YouTube, because up until several days ago, I was able to download content with a Firefox add-on.)

BTW. I tried to upload a screenshot of the image. The progress icon has been turning for minutes ... It might work on Chrome, but the image upload functionality is broken with version 63.0.1 (x64).

Your "Pocket" ... your "Bookshelf" icon ... etc. ... I wish y'all would let me suppress the display the meg@Kewl new stuff, which I never use.

OK I was tidying up my bookmarks that over the years through various iterations of Firefox /chrome. But first I disconnected from sync and elected to delete all the saved sync information. I then went through and tidied all my book marks getting rid of any duplicates and ones with broken links. All good. Next I closed everything down and restarted. Had all my bookmarks just how I wanted them. Reconnected to my Firefox account to update all the saved data from my machine to account. Went away to allow time to sync. Closed Firefox after an hour or so. Open Firefox and automatically connected to my Firefox account. All the bookmarks are there as I had left them. No problem. Firefox seemed to delete all the browsing history (or maybe it didn't sync it in the first place). BUT.....no container data. It has reset the containers to the default state. Pretty sure this is not how sync should work. but when I open a private browser its container data seems to be intact. Anyone struck this? I notice Firefox updated to 66 on 19/3/2019 Love containers, its close to what the internet should be like I know container data has not yet been made part of sync (everyone wants it!) but is this a bug or something they forgot to tell us in the new release. EDIT Bit more information. websites will not open in new container. Firefox gives prompt to always open in xxx container but then simply hangs

Open a new tab while on a container-ed tab & have the new tab in that container

I absolutely love the new containers feature of Firefox. Well done, FF crew!

One feature request: when I'm on, say, a tab in my Work container and I do a Cmd-T to create a new tab, I'd like to have that tab open in whatever container I was on -- so in this example, the new tab would open in the Work container. I know there's an menu item to open a tab in a specific container, but this would make it 2 steps faster. Is this already possible?
