Dear community,

Transferring my passwords from an old profile backup (v 49) to a profile in a newer version of Firefox (v 77.01). I'm copying across the logins.json and key4.db files like it says here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_passwords. but it still doesn't seem to show my passwords in the new Firefox version when I look in the preferences. I did happen to notice that the key file version is named 'key3.db' in the old profile whereas the corresponding file in the new profile is 'key4.db'. I don't think they're compatible. My question is can I move my passwords from the old profile to the new profile in Firefox v 77.01? Please can you tell me if I can do it offline/locally like this? I don't want to do it with Firefox sync. I'm currently having problems signing into Firefox sync so that isn't an option.

Kind regards,

Matt

Because some sites do not load properly due to some of the installed extensions. So, I have to disable whenever visiting the site and enable it again after closing the site.

Hi there. I'm a blind web developer and I was wondering if there is some way to make the Firefox developer console more screen reader friendly. As it stands, I have no way of viewing JavaScript runtime errors or much of anything besides the element hierarchy when inspecting an element, and even this only provides very little information. I ask because there seems to be a big focus lately on testing for accessibility, but the tools to do so seem completely inaccessible themselves.

I would welcome any suggestions on how to use/improve the dev tools with a screen reader (I'm using NVDA) or an add-on I can down load that would be more friendly to me. I saw a mention of one called "Firebug", but that appears to be an outdated post.

I would like to clear/delete ALL UNPINNED top sites thumbnails at once. Similar question was posted over three years ago... no solution was ever given. Having to go through them one at at time, clicking Delete from History, confirming, over and over and over, is a real pain. If the info is stored in a sql database table or even a json, it would at least be a quicker way! AND some of the thumbnails require multiple click to finally get rid of! Can you help?

I am developing a webrtc site and I have four (4) peer connection objects. The first peer object successfully connects to the first client. When the second client attempts to connect, firefox crashes on this call:

peer.setRemoteDescription(rmd);

The same call succeeds without problems on chrome and four (4) separate clients can connect on chrome.

I have submitted a crash report and below is thr crash ID:

bp-829d5bad-23a4-40aa-82aa-2a8910200916

At this point I think this is a firefox issue.

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

I have 2 windows of firefox and i close it using bat file. Which terminates process firefox. I used it like that long time and never had problem. However i launched firefox and it said some error and gave me 2 choices: either start in safe mode or refresh. I clicked on refresh and now all my tabs are gone. I checked under history and closed windows - there is nothing... Any way to get my tabs back?

Also how to avoid this issue, if you close window one by one. Than you go to go to library and history and manually restore window, or press some hotkey. Even that is annoying, instead of just using bat file to kill process and than you have both windows open. Because sometimes close window won't safe, if you use hotkey. So i gave up on that...

Very often I need to delete cookies from web sites so the sites won't remember me. The cookies in private tabs never show up in "Privacy & Security / Cookies and Site Data" (so I can't delete them from there), and they don't go away when I close the tabs or windows. It seems that I can only get rid of them by shutting down Firefox - a horrible solution when I have many other tabs and windows open.

I can't believe that no way exists to delete cookies (and local storage) in private windows and tabs. Does anyone know some way to do that?

Hello,

I have a website on Wordpress that uses google fonts (called via css). The fonts have always worked perfectly up until very recently when I noticed they started rendering improperly. I checked other browsers and found that the fonts render fine in Chrome but not in Firefox or the Firefox-based Pale Moon browser.

I've included screen shots from Firefox 80.0.1 (my default) and Chrome. The Firefox screen can be differentiated by the "Edit this post" link.

The most confounding aspect, to me, is that this is a recent development as they used to render in all browsers without issue. Would anyone have any insight into what may be causing this?

SO, I had 2 windows and 11,678 tabs open. (I guess I hoard). Anyways, FF slow response times caused me to do a FILE/EXIT. (I've noticed after restart, my response times go back to normal).

While doing the FILE/EXIT, FF crashed. I was surprised by that. In the popup I selected RESTART. But, that crashed again. On the next popup dialogue box I selected QUIT. Then I opened FF again (after verifying all the processes in TASK MANGER had ended. That crashed. I again selected RESTART in the popup. Crashed again. Then selected QUIT. I clicked on FF to start, and this time the SAFEMODE popup appeared. I selected SAFEMODE - but that attempt crashed also. On the next popup I tried RESTART - and another crash. Finally, I tried SAFEMODE again, and FF is now running in safemode. I did notice it had 1 less tab - 11,677 now.

So, I read that if FF crashes during a SAFEMODE startup - it's likely not an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration issue.

So, I am in SAFEMODE right now. I don't know what to look for at this point. Can someone help me? Can anyone read the crash reports to see what my issue might be? Or give me other advice before trying to EXIT safemode and start FF again in normal mode?

The last several submitted FF crashes from today are below:

With the most recent version of Firefox (80.0.1 64-bit), the free videos at cbs.com no longer play, even with AdBlock turned off. That wasn't the case with earlier versions of the browser. However, everything at abc.com, nbc.com, YouTube, and Netflix play as always. I contacted CBS about this matter but, after a four-week wait, have not had a response. Fortunately, I can watch the free CBS content if I use Google Chrome and/or Microsoft Edge. Because of that, I wonder if the problem lies with Firefox and not CBS. None of the so-called solutions I've read here at Mozilla Support--regarding the playing of videos--has worked.
