Every once in a while the Firefox browser will close down (I'm assuming for an autoupdate) when it does it clears my chosen search engine as well as the information of recently closed tabs and windows. This means that when it restarts I have to search through my history for the sites and pages that I had open before it closed down. Why is this happening? and is there a way I can stop it?

I have no trouble switching the Mozilla folder to make things simple for my 64 bit win 7 install works like a charm. I also have a 32 bit win 7 on another drive that I would like to update with all my latest bookmarks and passwords. I would just save the Mozilla folder of that 32 bit drive and slide my 64 bit made Mozilla folder over to it. Would this work, I don't believe it could cause any harm if it don't work I can always just slide my 32 bit folder back in, I will have it saved of course just in case. I have in the past moved those other folders but this is different in that I cannot run both drives and systems at the same time,. I have them so I can chose my boot choice either in bios or using the F11 key to chose which would boot first. I haven't used the 32 bit for two years but I have a lot of tools I need to go back to and use for image work. I can select the Mozilla folders easily from either system and do the replacement so it isn't hard. I would rather like some input before I do this. Of course I am talking about my profile information but moving the entire Mozilla folder from one to the other, that is a working fix for making it easy on a new firefox install without any bookmarks or other information. Thanks

I recently changed my default search engine to Bing, but not the browser, and noticed that my back page often doesn't work. I have to click and hold the back page arrow and mouse down to get to a page in the traceback chain that will execute. I assume this is not the result of Bing - I just report it because it's the only thing I've changed recently. Can this behavior be fixed?

I'm on Windows 10, build 10941.685 Thanks

Hello,

My firefox does't open the "New Private Window". Whenever I install firefox for the first time, the New private windows doesn't show any problem. But when I proceed, I can find out I can no longer open the new private window. Technically, the website opens, but it does not show the "purple-coloured eye glasses".

I think my computer is infected by malware because my searching histories are also saved in the incognito mode of Google Chrome.

Would you be able to fix this problem by updating the software?

I use a Wacom Intuos Pro m. I set one of the pen buttons to operate as scroll/pan. When I use scroll/pan in a page to scroll upwards or downwards, if the page hasvideo content (youtube, vmeo), the video playhead moves forward or backwards at the same tiem the page moves. In other words, page scrolling and video scrolling do not work separately, and this only happens in Firefox windows, not in Firefox mac, nor with other Windows browsers.

How can I set up Firefox so the pan/scroll works as expected, namely, only having effect on the scrolling of the page?

Thanks

Firefox won't bulk save (as) the files/images from the View Page Info > Media tab.

I can save them individually. I can also drag the image from webpages to save individually.

Problem is when I multi select, then press Save As & choose the folder it should go in, then click Save, the images don't appear into that folder I've supposedly saved in.

It used to work fine, not sure what changed.

Hello,

Why is firefox unable to prevent autoplay of bluecove videos on espn?

muted or non muted? doesn't matter. autoplay set in config? doesn't matter. manipulating settings in about:config? works until the next update.

It's seems to me that after each update the developers at espn are actively searching for ways to circumvent your technology. I've visited bluecoves website, including one they have for testing a wide variety of autoplay features and each one functions as expected - their videos do not play.

But go to espn.com and every single video plays continuously and loudly. Note I do not have an espn account and I keep my cache and cookies cleaned out. A website should still respect the settings in my browser.

What gives? What can be done about this? What is going on that espn is one of the few websites that seems to never respect any autoplay denial feature firefox delivers? How does this get fixed? Why when I do a search in the forums about espn there isn't a single search result returned? I type in 'chicken' and 4 hits. espn 0.

Please help

I want to load a website. It is listed in the URL with the Red Anti stripe through the Padlock Icon. I try to Google Allow Unsecure Site Firefox. I also try to rearrange my search words, over and over. All of the "solutions" suggested in Firefox support blog require changing 9 security settings in 3 different sections of the preferences for the Browser. That is not that difficult. Note, I do not see any "solutions" suggested since 2018 or earlier. Caveat. I have to go back into the settings and change them back and restart Firefox for security to move on to UnSafe mainstream sites.

Is there not an "Allow Once" button, or Site Exceptions option? If so, how may steps is it to get there? How many steps to return to save browsing? This choke occurs with low skilled, low tech Pages, not sites.

I am attempting to view http://www.fortvan.org/pages/pearson-air-museum I can find no way of allowing this site/video to load without redesigning the browser, running 40 miles, cooking a cake, and painting the neighbors barn?

Should I just got to Chrome, who I hate, or Brave and get free crypto tokens?

Showing all passwords in a list view as it was in the old password manager was really helpful. I tried to install this: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3062276

But unfortunately with the newest Firefox 84 it is not working anymore. I get an error message.

Is there any other possibility to reactivate the old password manager? There are countless of people and threads on the internet wanting this feature back. Mozilla made a step backwards here unfortunately.

Thank you for your help!

Looking for any help or advice,

I only use 2 addons in firefox, they are Bitdefender Wallet and Adblock and since the last Firefox update I cannot get either working. I can install adblock, it will work until the browser is closed, next time I open the browser it will be disabled with no option to re enable it and no explanation as to why it was disabled. I have tried a few addons as a test and after the browser is closed all will be automatically disabled. With Bitdefender wallet trying to install the extension results in an error of the download is corrupt.

I have used Firefox for years with both of these options and no errors. To try and fix I have reinstalled both Firefox and Bitdefender but the issue remains the same.

Current Firefox build is at 84.0.2

Any advise would be brilliant as I really do not want to resort to Chrome (which is working perfectly).

Many thanks.

My employer uses the G-Suite at work. I use Firefox on my company computer and on my personal computers.

On the afternoon of Jan. 20, I lost access to Google Calendar. It only shows the dates and a crawling blue ribbon, as if it's trying to load my calendar and failing.

I ran some tests with my company computer and my personal laptop. Here's what I found:

  • I can access all the other G-suite components (Gmail, Contacts, Google Drive) from Firefox on both computers.
  • I have the latest version (84.0.2) on both computers.
  • I can access Google Calendar (and the rest of G-Suite) using Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge.

Sounds like Google implemented something in Calendar that doesn't get along with Firefox. Has anyone else seen this issue?

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.
