I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

In the support article about notifications: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox it states: Sites can also use Push to update data in the background even without showing you a notification.

What data does this include?

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.

Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?

I am restarting FF. I am on 76 and the install is for 77. A window pops up asking for my credentials to install a new helper tool. I don't recall seeing this before and it looks a lot like Oracle's Java installer that tries to install a bunch of crud. In that case cancel continues with the Java install. In this case, Cancel stops the FF upgrade.

What is this tool and why is it not described better to know have a better guess as to whether it is safe to install?

macOS Mojave 10.14.6 on Macbook Pro

On various sites where I want to copy some text, I highlight the text and hit Cmd + c. Works a charm. However, today, I accidentally hit Cmd + c + c instead of cmd + c to copy. There was a much louder screenshot like sound than the normal subdues OSX screenshot sound, Cmd + Shift + F4. I've searched for what this action is doing to no avail. Any suggestions?

Firefox has been my default browser forever but suddenly has started glitching! It will work for about 10 minutes but then the glitch happens and all of the top of the screen loses its text and turns into black/white color boxes that looks pixelated and the whole program freezes. In the picture posted, the glitching continues down the right side of the screen too. If I quit Firefox, it starts up fine again (with all browsing tabs lost) but then the error will occur again in a short while.

Hi,

I had an second email address added to my account.

I removed it, because I want a second account for this address.

But this is not possible.

If I want to create a new account through the firefox interface, it seems like it is still connected to my old account. If I want to initiate a password reset, this is not possible.

What can I do?

I have installed Firefox and Firefox Beta on MacOS and open them in that order so both are running concurrently; Firefox (not beta!) is selected as the default browser on my computer. Whenever I follow a link from any application that is not a browser, new tabs are opened in Firefox Beta.

If Firefox Beta is not running, tabs open as expected, in Firefox.

My expectation is that tabs would always open in the browser that is set as the default.

Is there any way I can tell the Operating System to open new tabs in Firefox and not in Firefox Beta?

I recently updated from an older version of OS X to 10.15.5. This has happened numerous times and I am trying to figure out if there is something I am doing to cause it. I am on a Mac PowerBook Pro. I can have several Firefox windows open and something I do by moving my "mouse" (the trackpad) from right to left deletes all open windows and resets to my home page, essentially like I have just opened the app. Firefox doesn't quit or anything, it just wipes out all open windows which is very annoying. As it is a trackpad and I am moving my finger across, I am wondering if my thumb is doing something inadvertantly. Is there a "movement" or something that is causing this? Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.

Has anyone experienced this issue?

I have set Firefox for macOS to use the default theme in which uses the system colours.

The system goes into dark mode without issue in Firefox, however, Firefox fails to go back to light mode when the system goes back. Currently it is the only application that I have this trouble with and I can not workout what the issue is.

Tried reinstalling Firefox.

I haven't heard anyone else having this issue so now wondering if there is something uniquely wrong with my system or set-up?

I would be grateful for any ideas
