I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

Constantly getting https://app.getresponse.com/error404.html and

The page you're looking for doesn't exist.

Here's what might have happened:

Double-check the URL. Alternatively, go back. error404

So need help to get out of this GetResponse or something really aggravating. Loy Banks

I am trying to use a program (video display) and when I press the button to allow adobe flash I get a very small long thing and an error that says something like "#error 3409" I have re-installed it. My addons say that I have shockwave flash installed. I have installed adobe flash several times with the same result. Perhaps I should remove shockwave flash and install again. I have no clue.

Thank you................

Why doesn't "Delete cookies when Firefox is closed" also delete the Cache?

Firefox's Clear Data control allows you to clear both Cookies AND the Cache. This makes perfect sense, since both of these things can be used to identify/track people.

But from what I can tell, if you enable the option Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed, this doesn't clear the Cache, only Cookies?

In fact, the only way to clear the Cache at restart is to dig deep into the Clear history when Firefox closes settings, which few people would know to look in.

So, correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't this giving users a false sense of security? They think all the Cookies will be deleted when they open Firefox, but actually the Cache is still there, allowing them to be easily identified?

Personally, I'm less concerned about cookies because they are opt-in (here in the UK). But as for being tracked via the cache, we have no say in that, so that's what I'm more concerned about.

Hello!

I'm working on a small game (web-based) and I'm experiencing a very weird error with the new Firefox 82 update.

What I'm experiencing:

1. I can't logout. Every time I go to /logout, FF refreshes the account page. If I do the same thing on Chrome, it works. 2. I post something on the Forum - page refreshes. If I do CMD+SHIFT+R, the post shows up. 3. I can't login. I login, page stays on an AJAX request with loading. I do CMD+SHIFT+R, it logs me in and goes to the account.

This was all previously working fine in FF 81, and everything IS working as expected in Chrome.

I tried in Vanilla FF (without any plugins) and same issue. I disabled all external scripts that could cause this, and nothing is working.

Example here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/isba772aj49cpoz/Screen%20Recording%202020-10-25%20at%2020.46.04.mov?dl=0

Since an update about two weeks ago, every time I press alt-s the search/address bar is expanded. This is annoying, because we use this key combination to save forms of a web-application (our ERP). I didn't find an option to disable this behaviour. A web-search did not help. I found some suggestions, but none of them worked (eg. old discussions here: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=446830 or here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343909)

Any Ideas?

Hello all,

I've read some bug reports and discussions about the JNLP files blocked in Firefox ( JNLP should be treated as executable , Should not treat JNLP files as Executables (revert bug 1392955) on ESR-68 , Improve usability for JNLP and other executables and JNLP should not be considered an executable extension ). All I'm understanding is it has been blocked since Firefox 67, then "allowed" back again, then blocked for security purposes in Firefox 78. To sum it up, the bug 1576762 is still open, JNLP are still blocked. Nowadays, it's not possible to directly launch a JNLP file, you've got to download it and run it thereafter. Am I right ?

Also, I've taken note of the Firefox ESR release "too late". I've installed the "mainstream" Firefox release on a server in order to be remotely used by end users (via a RDS server, only to browse a internal website, they can't browse the web). What are the results/differences/cons (except the extended support) ?

Thanks in advance for your replies. Jo.

Just downloaded Firefox. would appreciate any suggestions

  • menu bar, context menu, any type of drop down menu fails to open initially, only displays after a few clicks
  • tooltips on particular website making portions of content (that they cover) temporarily disappear, Most likely FF issue, not website issue after investigating

I already:

 *  restarted computer twice
 *  reinstalled FF
 *  FF refresh
 *  used FF safe mode

Why won't the bookmark in 'Other BookMarks' go away when I 'move' it (drag and drop) to where I want it in my saved bookmark directories? This is a copy not a move and I want a move function.

Why can't I delete a BookMark from 'Other BookMarks' without the same bookmark getting deleted where I sorted it (there is a link that shouldn't be there).

both these issues make it impossible to manage 'Other Bookmarks' and keep it tidy and minimal
