Hello SUMO Team!

  I always had this question but never really asked it. Why isn't DuckDuckGo or a more privacy based Search engine set as default? You even have to manually add Startpage and others... 

 It just hurts me how a privacy browser has the Google search engine as default after all, most people come to Firefox for privacy and Google is the opposite. Maybe one of the developers can change that?

Thank you so much for trying to help me and Stay Safe!

Ever since I deleted my history, Bookmarks will not allow me to bookmark a page. When I click "Bookmark this page," nothing happens. The Star in the address bar is not highlighted and when I click it, it doesn't respond. When I checked my Preferences, everything is setup correctly. I don't know how long this has been happening, but I noticed it the other day. I have refreshed Firefox, and it didn't help. I have the newest version of Firefox. I only mention the deleting history in the beginning of the post for context. Thanks.

For the past few days my Firefox randomly crashes, specifically - tab crashes. Sometimes it is local news website, there was one fullscreen video that crashed that tab 2 times, and even YouTube tab has crashed.

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)

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

i have tried every about:config option there is on google and i still can't disable the expanding URL bar (where once you've entered a asearch, heading back to the bar expands a menu on the right side with a privacy icon, a drop down menu, a pocket icon, and the bookmark icon). very irritating.

i have seen options regarding the userChrome file but i'm inexperienced and probably messing something up.

any help would be much appreciated.

Sorry that I don't know the version when this started, but within the last couple of months I have noticed that keyboard inputs are being processed incorrectly in many places.

The CMail web interface is one example. At the moment, in almost every GMail that I compose, I find "pieces" of things that I type in the wrong place. For example, I'll see a character on the end of a word somewhere in the message and notice that the same character is missing from a word later in the paragraph.

I also use some keyboard macros, and this new behavior has essentially stopped the use of these macros in FF.

One good example is that, for years, I have used a macro to dial voice calls using Google Voice. When google force the change to the new (green) version of Google Voice about six months ago, I had to spend several hours testing timing "delays" to get the macro to work in the new interface.

Those changes worked until the keyboard input problems started sometime in the last couple of months and the dialing macro not only became unusable, editing the timing delays didn't help.

If I fire up Chrome and use the same macro that fails in FF in Chrome, the macro works flawlessly in Chrome.

The first time I noticed the Megabar (I believe it was FF75) I absolutely hated everything about it and ruins the experience using Firefox. I am also not alone in this matter because as soon as the change was established, communities popped within hours to fix the problem. The old way of fixing this eyesore of an issue was the old about:config and changing around the settings then VIOLA! back to normal. Now after the update to 77, the Megabar is back and forced down everyone's throat and the old about:config is no longer the fix to this terrible experience. Literally after an hour of this trashbar being up, videos and guides popped up to try to fix it. Whole communities have been formed to hate this feature and ask Firefox to change it, or at least make it optional to go back. My question is, looking through google has only come up with the chrome.css(?) fix to this mess. Is there any way to change it back to the old url bar without having to go through the chrome.css fix or just uninstalling and reinstalling a previous Firefox or do I have to just migrate to another browser like Opera or Chromium?

I run Firefox on a number of systems and two of my work computers seem to be unable to check in with the Firefox update servers to get updates. See image for the exact error message.

"Firefox can't update to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox and we'll help you to install it."

My suspicion is my network team is blocking my browsers from getting to the Firefox update servers but I don't know how to test it. One of my browsers is 77.0, the other is 77.0.1. Both of them give me the error in the image. Both of them insist I'm on the latest version of Firefox when I use 'Help/About Firefox' to check.

If anyone knows what data I should collect to get this figured out I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

I am IT techie, and I need FF help on this. I searched the entire sync issue forum, but of no avail.

I had a Windows 10 update issue so I decided to format my PC. My sync was enabled and all data was synced normally. I went ahead and formatted it, and installed a new copy of Win 10, and all softwares, including FF. Now after syncing for over an hour, I cannot find anything. No history, no bookmarks, no logins, nothing.

This is definitely something to do with your update. I cannot figure anything else out. How can I get my old data back? This is absolutely ridiculous and frustrating.

I have 2 other laptops with FF synced, but they aren't booting up either because of hardware failures. I cannot risk turning them back on, and loosing my FF data from those laptops.

Please advise, how to access my cloud data on FF, or should I switch over to Google chrome because of your incompetency?

Hi: so, for the last couple weeks or so, I've been unable to login to Facebook. I think this may have occurred after updating to the then-latest version of Firefox, but I can't be sure of that. When I try to log in, I get this message:


The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.facebook.com.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.


I've tried clearing Facebook's cookies, clearing all cookies/cache data, and then refreshing Firefox. None of this has helped. (Meanwhile, Facebook sends me a "Is this you?" e-mail every time I try to log in...) Currently using Windows 10, and the latest version of Firefox.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
