Hello. I can't find my bookmarks after update 76. I followed the directions, and I ouldn't find anything. I searched my computer and all my drives for json files and 'bookmarks', and I found backups from 2001, 2013, and I know I have backups 'older' than those on discs, but the ones missing (so far) are the most important and complete ones from the past 7 years. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but update 76 'seems' to necessitate syncing devices. I only have reason to browse on my desktop, so I didn't plan on syncing it with anything. I 'do' have a smartphone, but other than downloading malwarebytes and one other app, that I need, that's the extent of my 'online' activities on the phone. However, since I couldn't find my bookmarks without doing so, I decided to download Firefox onto my phone and try to sync them up. When I signed up for the Firefox account earlier, I changed my password with a password generator. However, my phone doesn't have all the characters on its keyboard that are in my password. You can customize the keyboard, but it looked like a magnificent pain to do so. Instead, it seemed easier to 'dumb down' my password from 40 characters down to around the minimum, at least until I got them synced. However, I tried twice with typing visible on the phone and it said the password was wrong, so instead of trying a third time, and getting locked out of Firefox - I came here to see if anyone could help me. I know that rebooting often corrects a lot of things, but since I don't have these bookmarks backed up anywhere - I was afraid this might be a case where it may make the bookmarks more difficult or impossible to retrieve. Thanks in advance.

Hi. Probably the biggest savings and loan institution in the UK is the Nationwide Building society. 16 million customers and holds £6 Billion in deposits. Their https certificate is issued by ESET. But the information box under the padlock says: 'Connection verified by a certificate issuer that is not recognised by Mozilla'. Why doesn't Mozilla recognised ESET? There are no issues when using MS Edge or Opera. https://www.nationwide.co.uk/

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Firefox and IE can access most web pages, but both go "unable to connect" on mozilla.org

Hello,

I'm trying to update Firefox on a relative's Windows 10 computer, but none of the installed browsers can reach the Mozilla main pages. We're stuck on version 72.0.2

Other webpages load fine. The only way I've gotten mozilla.org to load is by using a web proxy, but then the error appears when I try to download the latest version of firefox (it's always "download was interrupted" then). Going down the recommendations on this help page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-and-other-browsers-cant-load-websites , I verified that windows firewall allows Firefox. Then I checked the system time and the wireless connection. Flushing the DNS cache was similarly fruitless. Other computers using the same internet provider in the same house don't have this problem, so I don't think the ISP is at fault. I even went looking for the DNS number of the website and tried inputting that into my address bar. Still no luck. I made an HTTP log file of the error through about:networking, as described here https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Debugging/HTTP_logging, and will attach it. I really hope you can help me troubleshoot this; it's been plaguing my relative for an excruciatingly long time.

... hm. Your attachments browser window doesn't see .moz_log files, so I've uploaded them to this ge.tt address: http://ge.tt/1ocAom83 .

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Is any one else experiencing an inability to log in to wellsfargo.com. I have latest version of firefox and have no new add-ons or changes in security/anti-virus or malware programs.

Their tech support said "sounds like a browser issue" . I switched to ie and logged right in. I use to log in a dozen times a week and have not ever been denied. When I try to log in the screen re-freshens and is blank. No bad log in script or any other prompts, just a waiting log in screen.

Thanks for any thoughts or similar experiences.

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.

When I visit the pharmacy section of CVS.com and click on any of the drop down selections, nothing happens. With chrome I don't have a problem. When I chose Inspect Element on an item, a reference to javascript is highlighted, and javascript in enabled in the config. This is the case on both my Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 machines. So I'm wondering what it could be.

Hi Friends,

I have read the other posts on this questions.

I have a very unique use case. My grandfather is 101 and still going strong. He loves his computer and regularly has in-depth questions that he calls me with.

The firefox (latest version) updates are causing him serious problems though. It seems like they are very regular - I know this is good, but in this case, being 101, I just want him to be able to use his computer without being bothered with the updates. I am aware of the different options, but unfortunately there is not a "turn off" option (why!). I did read something about modifying a .json file though. On a side note, I'm a computer guy and have been involved with IT for over 30 years. The firefox updates are a "bother" for other people I work with as well.

Does somebody have the code they can share to turn off these updates? When this stupid covid is over I will be seeing him regularly and will perform the updates myself.

Thank you.
