Most files I click on, I want Firefox to download a copy to my laptop. I often have the option to put a check mark for "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". But sometimes, I can't. Why is that?

The main reason I wrote this post is to ask the question that comes at the end of this note. If you scroll to the end, you can see it marked as MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW.

As I was posting the question, I took advantage of the moment to reflect on the fact that FireFox's perseverance over its long history of ups and downs today has made FireFox one of the real hopes for humanity. Long Live FireFox!

Back in the dark ages, before the ascendance of Google's Chrome browser, I learned to recover FireFox's guts, to cope with its gastric spasms of projectile digital vomiting, which seemed to occur every few weeks. Most software in those days contributed full shares to the unusable stew, made the accumulation of digital barf that needed cleanup as often as I needed to clean up after hangovers from over drinking when I was a stupid youth. Those were the days when running a computer all day without being forced to restart taught me to weild Windows Task Manager as weapon, which usually provided a side step around enough of the binary vomit top cut restarts from 4 a day to only one or two.

Years later, while Microsoft was recovering from the largest, most expensive public mistake in software history (Windows 8), Google got a handle on Chrome. After that, around 2014, Google either found Popeye's spinach factory, or aliens joined them in their Mountain View offices, because no human force can account for the rate and quality of significant upgrades to all their systems since then, for Chrome browser, underlying Chromium technology now used by everyone, not just for browsers, but all manor of application software to run on all kinds of platforms, Android for phones and apps, YouTube video processing that spots copyrighted sound and images in every video that has it, the world-leading advertising systems and dashboards, and their search engine so much better than anyone else's our choice is to use Google Search or be stupid and slow, or use Google Maps or be lost. Google pumps out new and better software features one hundred times faster than any other organization. If you missed the media reports explaining this, that is because Google's super productivity has not been celebrated in anything like the degree warranted.

Unfortunately, Google also has become so evil it probably cannot be prevented from destroying the system of human checks and balances invented in the United States 240 years ago. As simple and feeble as those checks and balances are, without them it is hard to see how any substantial part of the human population ever could have experienced and lived with Liberty and the productivity it makes possible. For example, without the Liberty growing throughout the world after taking its initial root in the United States and our written Constitution, one of the most ingenious and consequential documents ever written, the normal result of military conflict would have been one murderous, tyrannical, wholly self-serving dictatorship or another forcing 99% of the human population to live as serfs or slaves in the involuntary service of people like you know who. Google and the rest of the power players in commercial media are destroying that, through political bias they lie about. The problem with their lies is they have the power of their media platform to perpetrate them. Google is evil and needs to be neutralized. The main thing I can do about this is to stop using their products. The other thing I can do is tell people about what is happening. I was raised to see things this way, but for until recently, I did not see this is the way we have to look at things because this is the way that works. Until recently, I did not know society cannot stop functioning, but now I know that the functioning we all take for granted, including the people fighting against it, is rare as diamonds when viewed in the context of human history, Some of the people attacking our country want to break it down, because they want the United States to become like the places people now leave in order to come here. The sickness is the same that has affected all gluttons for power. They have learned that force of military arms tends to galvanize people like you and me. Instead, they lie to us. pretending to harbor the same loves for life you and I have, when in truth they see us is idiot patsies, making us deserve their the damages wrought by their treachery.

Therefore, I stopped using Chrome, returning to the FireFox way of browsing. I was with Chrome so long, I forgot all about recovering browser profiles. FireFox is a lot more reliable today than it was before Chome blew everybody out of the water, but its profile system still ha regular bouts with projectile digital vomiting.

Today, my FireFox is not blasting bile all over the house, but is being rather brave holding the contagion within itself. I noticed passwords not filling into web forms that used to be there. I am not sure of the timing. I probably was a long time ago, but I kept getting messages from FireFox babbling about their new security system.

Today, I needed to identify active profile (i.e., the one I use) from the half dozen profiles piled into my FireFox installation. I don't know why there is more than one. Unfortunately, I just could not glean the one I need to look at from their names:

b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/

The online guide provided the usual waste of time. I asked the computer how to know which profile is the active one. I immediately found thousands of articles which each spell out the same eight or ten reasons why a person might wish to know which profile is active. The people writing these articles know their articles are filled mostly with spam (information we already have or don't need), but their editors are evaluated on word count, needed for diluting the concentration of ads in their publication. It's been years since the ANSWERS were easy to pick out of spam portions of the articles they appear with. From this agony-inducing swill I found information that looked like it might tell me how to spot the active profile. "Look for ".default" as part of the profile name. So I looked again,

b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ n34593ht.default-release/ n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ q412vz1p.default/ uiaqaxwu.default/


All of the profile names contain ".default."


MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS POST IS TO ASK THE QUESTION BELOW. Then I noticed the dates

Months ago b2uzr27w.default-release-1/ Months ago n34593ht.default-release/ Two days ago n6gdm7r8.default-release-1/ Today q412vz1p.default/

Evidently, two days ago, FireFox ditched my profile and gave me a new one. This leads to my question, my reason for posting this thread:

Why?

In other words,

Why did FireFox ditch my profile and give me a new two days ago?

I understand, you probably don't know why in my particular case. I am hoping for reasonable guesses or possibilities.

Using microsoft explorer, TWINUI appears, and printing works fine for the same files. How do I fix this problem.

I don't normally save and restore sessions, but do have firefox set to restore the previous session in the event of a crash.

Recently, following a power cut, such a session restore occurred, correctly restoring all the pages I had open at the time (not many), and the scroll position within the page.

Since this happened, any page I open on one particular site (https://www.theguardian.com) now always scrolls to the end of the page, and I have to manually scroll back up to the top. Once loaded, you can scroll the page normally, but F5 refresh will reload the page and scroll to the end again. This effect is persistent across restarts, and I've not found a way to get rid of it.

I've tried simulating another crash with that site open, scrolled to the top, and I've tried enabling saving the session on exit and restoring on startup - none of this has changed anything. In both cases it restored the session and scrolled to the end.

Any suggestions as to where this effect might be coming from?

Using Firefox 70.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6. I'm running into two issues that seem related and which I haven't solved. Firstly, there are some websites that refuse to let me log in (notably Flickr) except in a private window. There are others, such as a Leica camera forum, that let me log in but only show images if I do so in a private window. What I've done so far: -turned off extensions for those sites (uBlock Origin and Malwarebytes Browser Guard) -turned off Firefox tracking protection -tried in safe mode -cleared cookies and cache -(in response to a recent thread about a similar issue) ensured dom.webnotications.enabled is set to 'true'

This issue seems to have arisen with the update to v.70. Any thoughts?

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to <this URL> because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? <this URL> has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

I'm switching permanently from Chrome and this is the first problem I've run into. I had Firefox set to never remember history before, but since it's going to be my primary browser now I need it to remember cookies. Every time I try to change the history setting it pops up with "Firefox must restart" but when it restarts the setting is still set to never remember history and it just pops up again. How can I fix this? Already tried custom setting for history and browser.private.autostart and they didn't work either.

Ideally I'd like firefox to remember cookies but not history, but it's not a major issue if it has to have both.

I have Firefox 70.0.1 (64-bit) running on Windows 10 Pro. I recently added several addons to firefox on a fresh install (new laptop) prior to syncing to my account from another PC, but despite appearing on the list of addons as enabled, (and all having worked for me previously on my old laptop) the new extensions do not appear in my toolbar or on the list of items to include in the toolbar when I click on customize. I have closed and restarted both firefox and my machine, and removed and reinstalled the addons several times but none of this has helped. I also synced my account and clicked the include addons checkbox and this did not help either.
