Hello there,

I am having issues restoring a profile for an user. Long story short, there was some malware messing with the computer, and in the process of quarantine and cleaning the machine out, the Firefox Profile got deleted. I was able to recover the Profile folder, and I see all the files and folders there (places.sqlite, bookmarkbackups, cookies.sqlite, etc.)

I have been following the process of restoring the profile, (copying and pasting those files on a new profile for example). However, every time I move all the files back, and open Firefox, it creates a places.sqlite.corrupt, and a couple of other 'corrupt' files. And none of the bookmarks or any other info get restored.

Any advise? Thanks in advance!

I have been trying all day to access Facebook. I keep getting the following message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com. The server uses key pinning (HPKP) but no trusted certificate chain could be constructed that matches the pinset. Key pinning violations cannot be overridden.

Error code: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_KEY_PINNING_FAILURE

   The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
   Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

My main question is, has Facebook been notified of this problem? FYI, I have even tried (yuch) Chrome and Edge and get similar message. I will supply screen shot.

Hi, so initially I wasn't worried about this since I thought it was maybe just one webpage that was faulty - not Firefox itself - but I've now had this issue on several pages. The issue is that the webpage links will not work, for example, on https://www.vans.com/ trying to use the side filter when scrolling through products does not work, you can click on them (say if you wanted to filter for slip on shoes) but the link acts like text. I've also noticed this on https://optcorp.com/ (a telescope website) where if you tried to click on a link from one of the tabs (say Telescopes -> Professional Telescopes) it doesn't do anything. Oddly enough it does show the full link in the bottom left corner so right clicking to open in a new tab works but just clicking it doesn't.

I've cleared my cache and had Firefox refresh and the issue is still there, I'm not sure what could cause the issue.

We have a WordPress website that has a direct menu link to a PDF file. The PDF has links at the top that transport the user to a particular section in the document. On Chrome it looks fine, but on FireFox, there are thick, ugly borders around each link. I've tried to change the border with CSS using .linkAnnotation, but it never works. I have found that for an individual browser, you can change the userContent.css, but we'd like to change the appear of the PDF for all users. How do we do this?

I've attached an image of the PDF but I've whited-out the text.

<ul id="spouseTabs" class="nav nav-tabs" data-tabs="tabs" role="tablist"> displays as vertical list items instead of horizontal tabs.

<div id="SpouseTabContent" class="tab-content"> all of the <div id=xxx class="tab-pane fade" role="tabpanel" aria-labelledby="yyy"> are visible instead of the active tabpanel.

When I download an html document that contains a bootstrap nav-tabs example to a file and display that file with Firefox I get the same behavior.

I just tried to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account and get an error message stating that this email address is in use by another Firefox account user (already verified by another user).

Is there a way of finding out which account it is registered to? I can't recall ever using this email address in Firefox before?

Thanks

As the subject says, my print dialog shows on the wrong monitor. Usually with other apps you can bring the program to the correct monitor and close it there then it opens there as well. I move FF around from time to time but my main monitor gets the most use. To test this weird issue, I moved FF to the second monitor and tried printing there, the dialog shows up on my main LOL. What causes the print dialog to show up on the wrong screen, or even why does it always choose another screen other than the one FF is being displayed on? Is there a setting or option to correct this? The reason this is problematic is I don't always turn on the second on, so if i want to print a receipt or something I have to turn on the second monitor(which for me takes a bit, first the main blanks out then second turns on then first "catches up"). I hope someone can point me in the right direction.

does anybody know how to go straight to downloads by using the following link?

chrome://browser/content/places/places.xhtml

By default it opens all bookmarks. Using about:downloads is no option because of the limited functionality.

Every help is welcome!

Hi Team,

We are facing issue while exporting documents from our portal which is embedded into an iframe of some external portal.

We see the following error in the console :

Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at blob:https://abc.def.com/1gg3810-ae25-42ae-ghghb-123456789 (“frame-src”).

This issue comes only in firefox. We are able to export documents in other browsers. We think that the problem comes due to the portal is embedded into an iframe. when we execute the download URL in a separate tab, it allows to download the document.

We are using below CSP policy :

default-src * blob: 'self' 'unsafe-eval' 'unsafe-inline'; font-src * data:; img-src * data:; frame-src * blob: data: 'self'; object-src *

Thanks

When closing Firefox and more than one window is open, I get a warning telling me how many tabs I have open in that window, and asking if I want to continue. If I continue, tabs will be lost.

The warning has two buttons, "Close Tabs" and "Cancel."

If I close FF with File > Exit or Ctrl-Shift-Q, and next time when I open FF, all windows and tabs came back.

The warning above should address this: It should give a third option of Exiting to bring back all windows when FF is started next time. Something like...

Do you recommend any specific stable nvidia driver version for firefox so it doesn't bsod ?..

I have an intel i7 and nvidia gtx 1080 hardware.
