Firefox just changed.

For over a decade I had a Bookmarks tab on my Bookmark menu, and now that's gone away. I have that whole setup very keenly arranged with folders-in-folders and now I either have to futz with several more buttons than I used to, or do a pop-up window with Ctrl+Shift+O to manage bookmarks when all I want to do is go to my bookmarks menu as before, select the right folder-in-folder, and then "Open all Tabs."

How do I get a Bookmarks icon to click as before without going into another menu for do the Manage Bookmarks when I don't need to manage anything? Speed and accuracy is important, and this is neither fast nor accurate without that icon/tool.

I was surprised today to visit a site and notice the "permissions" icon appear at the left of the address bar, showing me that cross-site cookies were allowed for this site. I have Enhanced Tracking Protection set to "Strict", so obviously this was a worrying thing to happen.

Looking into it a bit further, it seems Firefox provides a backdoor for cross-site cookies: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/third-party-trackers?as=u&utm_source=inproduct#w_managing-cross-site-cookies

  • "While cross-site cookies from trackers are blocked in Firefox by default, a site may signal to the browser that it needs to use them for important functionality. In this case, Firefox will allow a third-party website to use cross-site cookies the first five times (or up to 1% of the number of unique sites you visit in a session, whichever is larger) without prompting you. After that, Firefox will prompt you to block these cookies. Without your consent, Firefox blocks these cookies from that point because a site requesting access that many times may be a tracker."

This is most definitely not what I want!

I want every cross-site cookie to be blocked by default, unless and until I explicitly approve it. Is there an about:config preference I can set to achieve this?

Firefox has my credit card information and it shows up in a window when I go to pay for something, but when I click on the credit card I want to pay with, it won't autofill. In Settings, the box to autofill is checked. This has worked a hundred times before, but stopped working a few months ago. Also, I've checked the 2 relevant items in about:config an they are enabled. How do I get the autofill to start working again?

I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)

Hi,

First off, I have only ever used Firefox in English. I don't speak enough of any other language well enough to do otherwise. I booted up my gaming PC today and opened Firefox, and the language on my menus, bookmarks toolbar, and almost all Firefox UI has randomly changed to what looks like it might be Greek. I can't change it back. It looks from the settings page that the selected language is English, but again I don't speak or read Greek so I have no idea what's going on here. I've run a virus scan, nothing came up. I tried clearing the Firefox startup cache, that didn't help. It's only the Firefox menus that are in Greek, webpages are still showing up in English like they should.

Can somebody help me fix this please? I use Firefox as my main browser on all of my PCs and I don't want to have to switch to using Chrome on one of them. Thanks!

I lost my old session and while attempting to fix the issue I overwrote my sessionstore.json backups in the process. Now all i have are the upgrade.jsonlz4 files, i know those are old session backups from when we upgraded. how do i go about restoring those as a session? when i follow the typical session restore steps nothing happens seemingly because its a jsonlz4 - XXXXXX file.

Any way to change it to a normal jsonlz4 file?

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?

There is not "Usability" topic. Hence selected "Other".

Containers are one of those features that I use almost in every Firefox session. It clearly segregates my office and personal work. I am asking for a feature, that could already be there somewhere in the advanced configuration (about:config).

Before asking let me set the context. Before containers, I used profiles to separate my work. But the disadvantage of profiles is that the cache, auto-fill, history all those convenient features are not the same everywhere. But the advantage of profiles is that every shortcut key, clicking of link would open in the same work area profile. I don't have to open context menu and select a profile each time.

"Container Windows" could be such a feature which is best of both worlds. I am not aware if this is already there. At least the feature is not obviously visible. There is a feature in "multi-container plugin" which can move all the tabs belonging to a container to a separate window. if we add a feature, in this plugin or Firefox core, to bind a particular window to just one container then it can bring all the goodness of "profiles" and we can still use all the features of "containers".

1. Clicking a link in other application would open the default container (no-container) window 2. Control+Click, by default, opens tab in a bound container window, and hence in the same container 3. Context menu in all windows (bound and unbound) still gives an option to open tab in any container

Please let me know how to do this, if this is already implemented. Or tell me where to raise this feature request.

When I go to my bank's login site, I get a message saying that I need a newer browser. I have the latest version of Firefox, and I used to be able to log in just fine, but I recently reset my browser and I seem to have lost some settings. I have tried adding an exception for this site's cookies in Settings, and I've also tried turning off enhanced tracker, but the site still doesn't work. Is there a way to tell what is broken and then fix it? Thank you.

Hi I use my Firefox account on my personal computer and on my own computer on a server at work. Since my Firefox was updated to most recent version, I have not been able to save any passwords on Firefox on my server site. I tried adding a primary password using Firefox while on the local station, but it is not functional. Every time I open any new page to where I have an account, I have to reenter my Primary password before signing in to the site. I have since disabled this feature as it is not working for me. Firefox seems to be working fine on the local station at work and on my personal computer at home.

My Computer service tech for the server is unable to resolve this. I have also consulted a computer tech in the community who has not been able to solve it. We have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice. We have gone through a multitude of settings on the Firefox site. I am able to save the passwords without issue if I use Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome.

I am looking for someone who can give me guidance on what settings I many need to change. I simply want to be able to enter my user name and password for the common sites that I use, ask Firefox to store them so I do not have to retype them every time.

Thank you, Shelley B

Hi I have been experiencing rejection of access to many legitimate Web Sites. I have attached the error I get even when trying to get to a mozilla web page. This is getting both frustrating and limiting in my desire to support, which I do, Mozilla's strategy of privacy and freedom.

I am using Fedora Linux Version 34 and Firefox Version 100.0.2 64 Bit. I did not experience these problems months ago. I have kept everything up to date as far as I can with my OS limits, if any.

I want to examine what is going on and would like to know where to look. Any help would be appreciated ... Robert

Using Firefox 103.0 on a Mac running Monterey. Since updating to FF 100.0 or possibly 101.0, the BBC News website's videos won't play. I've tried turniing off all privacy/security add-ons and settings but still nothing. Just a grey rectangle with the BBC logo in it (see screenshot).

Safari can play them though. Any ideas?
