I have a new PC with Windows 11. Setting default programs in 11 is very complicated. My email client is Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/), which is accessed through the Firefox browser. When I get an email with an email link it defaults to "mailto", which defaults to the Windows Mail app, which I do not use. How can I make "mailto" default to Microsoft Outlook (https://outlook.live.com/owa/) running through Firefox?

Thanks, Jerry

I use the bookmark bar very heavily and my workflow was to just "drag" the tab with the mouse to folder in the bookmark bar, which would unfold and I drop the tab/bookmark in the desired sub-folder.

This worked really well for me, and was fast.

Recently, this stopped working. I can still drop a bookmark in one of the main folders in the bookmark bar. But not in any sub-folder, since the main folder closes as soon as I move the mouse inside it. It is also not possible anymore to move the already-saved bookmarks around via drag&drop.

Hi,

I have a fresh installation of my Macbook OS, and a fresh Mozilla Firefox installation. I would like to re-import my old passwords and log ins, but it seems that the new version of the browser doesn't have that option unfortunately. I can see only Import from Other Platforms options, but not import from file or similar.

I have .csv file, but no option of how to import in into my browser.

I would appreciate help on this one. Thank you in advance.

How to liberate the max size of the ".sqlite" file in "storage/default" in "~/.mozilla/firefox"?

Firefox seems to constrain the maximum size of the ".sqlite" file in "storage/default" in "~/.mozilla/firefox" to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user. I need to let the ".sqlite" file grow very large, even larger than the free space of the partition containing my home directory. Therefore, I need the following two points.

1. I would like to disable this 10% constraint. 2. I would like to place this ".sqlite" on an external USB drive (or USB stick) without moving the entire "~/.mozilla/firefox" directory to the external USB drive.

The path of this ".sqlite" contains an enigmatic alphanumeric string and hexadecimal digits, which differ from user to user and from machine to machine, and which may be inappropriate to be exposed to the public. So, I refrain from showing the exact path. Instead, I will describe the path.

The directory "~/.mozilla/firefox" contains a subdirectory whose name ends with ".default-release", which in turn has a subdirectory "storage/default", which still in turn has a subdirectory whose name starts with "moz-extension+++" followed by hexadecimal digits and hyphens (but not followed by "^userContextId"), which still in turn has a subdirectory "idb", which finally contains the file whose name ends with ".sqlite".

The following is a diagram to describe the path. Directories are separated by / as common on Unix-like systems unlike Windows. A sequence of three asterisks (***) indicates an omission of enigmatic string.


   ~/.mozilla/firefox/
     ***.default-release/
       storage/default/
         moz-extension+++***/  not followed by ^userContextId
           idb/
             ***.sqlite


Firefox seems to constrain the maximum size of this ".sqlite" file to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user.

I replaced the "idb" directory with a symlink named "idb" which points at a directory (which is also named "idb") on an external USB drive. That is, I deleted the "idb" directory from the partition containing the "~/.mozilla/firefox" directory, and created a symlink named "idb" in the place of the old "idb" directory.

Then, I successfully let Firefox write data into the new ".sqlite" file on the external USB drive. However, Firefox continues to constrain the maximum size of this ".sqlite" file to 10% of the free space of the partition containing the home directory of the user. Even after the diversion by symlink, the basis of the constraint is still the partition containing the home directory of the user (instead of the external USB drive), of which 10% is the max size of the new ".sqlite" file residing on the external USB drive.

I like neither the 10% constraint itself nor the basis of constraint being the partition containing the home directory of the user.

How can the 10% constraint be disabled? I would like the only limitation for the size of the ".sqlite" file to be the free space of the external USB drive.


By the way, for those who want to know why I care about this ".sqlite" file, I will explain as follows. There is a certain download manager which is an addon or extension of Firefox. In its multithread mode, this download manager divides the desired file into several parts, and downloads all the parts simultaneously. In certain circumstances, the multithread mode is several times faster than the single-thread mode. This download manager downloads all the parts of a file into the ".sqlite" file first, and then assembles them into a final big file in the Downloads folder or whichever directory that the user specifies.

In my use case, 10% of the free space of the partition containing my home directory is too small to receive big files. I wish this download manager could download the multi-parts into an external USB drive in a manner that Firefox does not impose any constraint. However, this download manager cannot let the user specify where the multi-parts should be downloaded to. It downloads the multi-parts into only the ".sqlite" file and nowhere else; and Firefox imposes the 10% constraint on the ".sqlite" file. The user can specify the destination of only the final file assembled from the multi-parts.

Anyway, I need to disable the 10% constraint. But how?

Thank you in advance.

Hi there,

I have a Firefox account which was registered using an email associated with a company I no longer work for. Since I have left the company, that email is inactive and I can no longer access it. This means that when I attempt to log into Firefox with that account, I cannot enter the verification / 2FA code because I cannot access the email.

Is there anyway I can close that Firefox account anyway? I do have the Firefox recovery key for that account though. I just wish for all the data associated with said account to be deleted.

Thanks

Okay so I am trying to use facebook messenger's "audio clip" function, but it says it does not have permissions to do so. I verified that my microphone(on my computers end) is enabled and able to be accessed, but when I go to firefox settings there is no option to allow or block facebook from having access. The Tab is just empty entirely with no option to "add a website" or remove one. I attached a screenshot of the error Im getting and the settings page. I reviewed the page "https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-manage-your-camera-and-microphone-permissions" and it shows that the website should be listed and I should be able to choose "allow or block" but the website is clearly not listed. Additionally that page references a button that does not seem to exist in my browser which was referenced as "the permissions icon". That icon is not anywhere on my browser or in the settings.

I attached 3 images that hopefully breakdown what I am trying to describe as its difficult to explain without directly referencing the images.
