Hello folks,

I'm looking to upgrade my FF browser as much as possible, but I need to run Mac OS X 10.9.5 (for legacy software) on my older iMac.

Currently running "78.15.0esr (64-bit)" and the "About" window says "Firefox is up to date" and "You are currently running on the esr update channel" (Not sure what that means)

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Like the title says, all of my logins and passwords are suddenly gone. I found a logins.json.corrupt in the profile folder, and tried renaming it to logins.json, but it didn't remember anything. Is there any way to get these passwords back? Or find out what the cause of this was? I lost some really valuable logins that I stupidly did not backup.

Very similar to posts in previous years that are archived and largely unanswered or not up-to-date.

I opened up my a Firefox session to find out I was logged out of sync and when I logged back in all my passwords where erased.

This has been stable for the last 10 months and Firefox has provided a reliable password archive with nice syncing features. However, this is a deal breaker, since I cannot loose the login credentials randomly.

No updates. No conscious logging out. No disregarding warnings etc.

Anyway to revert or retrieve?

By fixing the very first option you come across as soon as you go into General Under "Startup" The setting called "Restore previous Session"

Usually, a checkbox, is a boolean ON OFF.

Once more, this leaks data. For instance, logging into my webmail rebooting the machine, next time i launch firefox it spawns the same session again. This contradicts with the very first option under "General" -> Startup

If this was a public machine, some one would now have access to my email.

It seems that this is OS specific. But really, i don't care. My complaint stays the same. The option is broken, and firefox leaks data therefor. I no longer trust Firefox. This sort of stuff is not done deliberately.

Once more. perhaps bit logic is too complicated for you UI designers and a quantum gyro is more to your liking? Cause this is NOT normal.

Today, when i tried to watch a videos on Amazon Prime, im getting messages that say "WidevineCdm plugin has crashed" when i try to play.

Is it due to discontinued Flash? Are there any solutions??

thanks in advance!

Hi,

I have "Default Bookmark Folder Extension" enabled in the Add-ons Manager of Firefox (78.15.oesr). It now defaults to Other Bookmarks folder Instead of prompting me for various previously created folders. I have not knowingly changed any bookmark related settings. I was able to bookmark whichever folder that I prefer just two days ago.

Default Bookmark Folder Extension - Allows you to choose the default bookmark location folder and quickly bookmark pages via a dedicated icon.

Any idea how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Hello.

Up till recently it was possible to have the FF scrollbar width controlled by either a GTK theme, or by various extensions that existed. Recently this is no longer possible on both Firefox and Thunderbird and we are forced to accept a pencil thin scrollbar that someone has decided is 'the thing'.

As someone who suffers from visual impairment I have found this move to be a major pain as it is now almost impossible to get 100% scrolling accuracy as I have been accustomed to since forever. I don't need super large fonts or monochrome this and that, just simply what works when one cannot see properly any more.

I can only assume that you feel that anyone who is not perfectly sighted is beneath your concern and have decided to exclude us from use of your products. This is a shame and I do suggest that you could do yourselves some good by stepping back from this highly exclusive attitude.

I'd like to add search engines to my list, without having to find addons or extensions. This used to be possible in older version of firefox by editing one of the .json/.xml files but now doesn't seem to be the case.

If this isn't possible, is there a way to modify the firefox source to allow this? I hate to say it, but it's this sort of feature removal/deprecation that is slowly turning me away from firefox. It'd be really nice to have it back.

Apparently when Firefox updated to version 78.15.0 on my Devuan Chimaera operating system, I began to experience video corruption. Whenever the cursor is moved, thin horizontal lines break up the text or image for one second. Another symptom is that when the cursor is moved onto or away from the scroll bar at right, it displays horizontal lies of shades of grey. Other video intensive applications (LibreOffice Word) and browsers (tor browser, Chrome) don't have the problem. Hardware is Gibabyte Z590 Aorus Elite (no video card). I reinstalled without customization, cache, addons and the problem persists.

Hi,

My configuration is Firefox 78.14.0esr (64-bit), running on Slax, a Linux live distro based on Debian 10.

The URL I'm having trouble with is https://oldtime.radio. I click on a channel on the main page and the audio appears to stream. The tab in Firefox shows the speaker icon in the corner, but I get no sound. I've tried launching Firefox from the command line in safe mode with a new (blank) profile with the same behavior. No error messages in Firefox or the console. YouTube plays okay, as do various news sites. When an audio file is "playing" on the old time radio site, a link appears to download the corresponding mp3 file. If I click that link, the mp3 file autoplays correctly. Just streaming doesn't seem to play. I tried the site in Chromium and it works correctly.

I'm not sure how to further troubleshoot. I suspect there might be something like a codec that Firefox isn't finding that is included with Chromium but I don't know how to identify or trace what the stream is from the site.

Thanks,

Pat
