I've been through my settings and Firefox does allow me to save login info for other websites. It just refuses to allow me to save my login for Zoom.us. I thought this might be a website issue but no because I am able to save my Zoom.us login info using other browsers.

So how do I get Firefox to function correctly?

Thanks.

Hello,

I would like to save some settings that would take a lot of time to be done manually again, after an update. I have added about twenty search engines with the help of different Firefox addons. During my last update, these were lost (the search bar only had the default searche engines) although Firefox was synchronized (and conserved my bookmarks and other settings).

Would anybody have an idea how to save or synchronize them?

Thank you very much for any help!

The URL I used to use to get to password manager chrome://passwordmgrcontent/passwordManager.xul no longer works. Is there a similar URL that can be used in FF 66?

(I know that in later versions of FF there is a hamburger menu item for this)


A little bit more info:

Just tried it on FF69 Windows and it does work, but it does not work on FF66 Mac (which is where I need to use it). Not sure if it is the FF version or the OS

How to display multi-line add-on discription for non published extension

Im creating a FF extension for private distribution (I dont want it listed on the FF extension site).

If I use "\r\n" in my manifest.json "description" I can create a multi line description that displays as expected when I click on the preferences for my extension. The problem is that on the Add-on summary page (where all the installed extension are listed) the description shows the first 40 or so characters of the description (all of line 1 and then as much as will fit of line 2). I want to only show line 1.

I see that with extensions that are published the first line can be short and displays in the summary list, then when the preferences are displayed the first line is displayed and additional lines are displayed.

Any way to do this?

I get it Mozilla, you want us to update Firefox. But it's my computer and I want to choose when to do it. Stop with the multiple notifications and bring back the ability to turn them off.

Anyone know of a hack that will turn these off? Other threads on the subject have been turned off, with no real solution. Thank you.

How to make macOS system keyboard shortcuts work?

I set up an "App shortcut" hotkey in macOS's System Preferences binding ⌘⇧N (command+shift+N) to "New Private Window", but it doesn't work - when I press the key combinat… (read more)

I set up an "App shortcut" hotkey in macOS's System Preferences binding ⌘⇧N (command+shift+N) to "New Private Window", but it doesn't work - when I press the key combination, a new *non-private* browser window opens instead.

In the first attached image, you can see the shortcut configured in the `Shortcuts` pane of macOS' System Preferences application.

In the second image, you can see Firefox's `File` menu open, and verify that the shortcut is correctly assigned to "New Private Window", where it has replaced the default ⌘⇧P.

However, as I said above, the custom key combination doesn't work - it seems to in fact trigger the regular "New Window", which is still the default ⌘N (command+N, no shift key).

Any one know if this is a known issue, and if there are any solutions?

Using a different key combination is not useful for me, since I'm trying to switch from Chrome and have ⌘⇧N very ingrained in my behavior (I pretty much always use private windows unless I need to log in to a site or explicitly want the history saved). If I can't have ⌘⇧N then I might as well just try to adjust to the default ⌘⇧P.

The fact that executing the shortcut brings up a non-private window makes the whole thing much worse - I'm ending up using non-private windows when I think I'm using private ones :/

One of the pages I regularly visit has made an interesting choice. Because all the visitors come from a known list, instead of offering a username field, a plain <select> element is used, together with a standard password field.

This means that Firefox's password manager only saves and autofills my password, meaning I have to select my name every time. That gets mildly annoying. Is there some way to add the value (either the text value or that of the value attribute) of this <select> to the username-password entry and have Firefox autofill it?

I can whip up an example website if my description isn't clear enough.

I am not using Firefox Monitor, and I am running Firefox 66. I just visited a website, and was told via a popup message in the address bar there had been a breach back in 2010, exposing thousands of passwords. (And of course it suggested I sign up for Firefox Monitor to get details.)

I am wondering how Firefox knew that it should show me that message? Does it regularly download a list of breached sites, or is every site I visit being sent to Mozilla so they can check to see whether it's on a breach list?

I'm hoping it's not the latter as I never agreed to share my browsing history with Mozilla, or anyone else, but I can't find any information about how the browser maintains its list of breached sites.

I started Firefox in headless mode, now I want to share that screen with other Peer over WebRTC. This is a demo page of share screen that I use https://www.webrtc-experiment.com/Pluginfree-Screen-Sharing/

When I click the button, this dialog show up: https://i.imgur.com/TdMg6Ki.png

How can I allow the share screen automatically, Firefox don't even allow remember choice. I run Firefox inside a Xvfb session, is there anyway to accept the share screen automatically ( config, run with hidden flag ) or programmatically ?


Thank you
