When I opened Firefox as I always do just a few minutes ago, the browser had effectively disappeared. I was forced to "create a new account". Everything I had -bookmarks, history, home page, preferences...everything is gone. What can I do to restore it. I have been using Firefox as my default browser with no problems for many years until today. What happened and how can I fix it??

When entering credit card info in a web form, Firefox will pop up a dialog asking if I'd like to save the card info. If I click yes, the dialog closes but the info is not saved. If I go into settings where one can view the saved cards and enter the info to save a new one, I can enter one but again it does not actually save. There is no error, it just doesn't save. Tailing journalctl shows no errors, and launching Firefox from a console and watching the output doesn't show any error either.

It's been this way over several updates over the course of a few months (as long as I've been using Firefox on this computer).

Last night my Firefox 94.0.2 was hacked. When running Firefox, it would lock up my desktop. It disabled Norton Security, it disable other installed security software, and it disabled Windows System Restore. The hacker put up a message claiming to be Microsoft Support, with a phone number to call for help. This was a scam. I ran Firefox refresh, and that removed the hacker's program from Firefox, but then I had to do a full repair of my Window's installation. To protect my system, and prevent this from happening again, I added "xpinstall.enabled = false" into about.config. Please let me know if this will prevent a web site from installing a dangerous hack into Firefox, or if there is something else that I need to do. I have used Firefox for years, and have never encountered this problem before. Firefox is my favorite browser, but I am now afraid to use it. Please advise me what to do. Thanks, Jim

Using 94.1.2 FF Daylight on Android. Everytime a link is clicked a new tab is made, perhaps every new search too. Whatever it is, too many tabs are being generated by my browsing and I spend a lot of time controlling and reducing way too many tabs. And there's no apparent way to just say go to the link in the same tab, not in settings and about:config is disabled in Daylight FF. I like less tabs and just use the back button. It might be my imagination but newer versions of FF seem setup to make more tabs vs older versions? Anyway, I ask for a way in settings to make less tabs. Thanks.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

Is there any official or unofficial article/website explaining all the about:config settings? Currently i am trying to pre-edit all my custom firefox settings with the autoconfig.cfg I noticed that dns over https can be pre-edited with the cfg, so im pretty sure the setting: enable https only mode for all windows, which by default is disabled for whatever questionable reason, can be pre-activated via cfg.

How could i do that?

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Whenever I click the PiP floating icon on video-hosting sites such as YouTube, the PiP window pops up but does not stay on top. It is immediately hidden by other windows. I always need to open the window menu and enable "Always on Top". Shouldn't this be enabled by default? Is there anything I can do to make it enable by default?

For reference, I'm using GNOME 41.1 on Manjaro Linux.

I cannot find any way to report problems, this seems to be the only way. When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf 2022). I do that and also check your "Do this automatically" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the same Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf 2022 in the Applications section of General Settings (Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)) and it is just deleted or never saved. The next time I look or try to use it, it’s gone. This is obviously a bug in your system, please correct. Thank You.
