Dear,

I need to recover my Mozilla (Firefox) account on my computer after this latter crashed. Unfortunately, apparently I don't have the good password. Probably I used an automatically generated password which I don't remember.

I still have my account connected on my Android smartphone, but I can't access the account details (no way to recover my password or change through this device?!), and I can't export my bookmarks. Also, apparently all my identifiers and passwords were not synced on my smartphone :-( Hence somewhere all my precious information are available, but stupidly enough I can't access it anymore and resetting the password warns me that I might (is it even a certainty or a possibility?) lose everything. It seems that I cannot even produce a revovery key (to reset pwd without losing data as mentioned in the Help pages) as I can't connect on a desktop browser anymore (but well on my Android version). I am lost and just stupidly blocked - this is SO frustrating, I initially thought it would be a good idea to put everything in Mozilla - well...

Is there ANY way to actually recover my account without losing data on my desktop Firefox, given I still have access to the email account associated to the Mozilla account (and to the original emails from the creation of my accounts) and I still have access to my Firefox account on the Android app but this one doesn't seem to allow to do anything interesting in my case??

Thanks a lot!

When I click a link on page, or an app tries to open a tab (eg to print an ebay invoice), it opens and immediately closes the first time, but stays open the second time. It's really annoying.

In troubleshoot mode, it doesn't happen.

I am using FF109.0 and Linux Mint - 001-1.0 fresh install on new HD.

I had the same problem last year after I upgraded FF but did fix it eventually (can't remember how) Thanks

Hi, I am trying to create a new account on a website with standard email, password, and retype password fields. I have checked the Suggest and generate strong passwords box, yet Firefox (v109.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) is not suggesting a password. I have tried left clicking and right clicking on both password and retype password fields to no avail. Help?

TIA

Internet websites can be rather heavy these days (like mega.nz or reddit, especially with multiple tabs), and they often take all memory (I think this is about RAM, of which my Macbook Air has only 4 GB, while running Kubuntu 22.10). Firefox very often freezes because of this, and my Linux system gets frozen too, completely unresponsive, with reboot as the only solution...

The problem that I want to solve is not the freezing as such, because that is not Firefox' fault, but that of the websites vs my RAM.

But I have noticed that while Firefox freezes along with the system, Opera, for example, when stumbling into the same problem, simply crashes, and the operating system is not affected.

Is there some setting/tweak in Firefox that makes it keep trying to run when out of memory and thus freeze the system instead of just close, like Opera does?

I understand that the following is necessary as described in the FAQ. I lost my two-step authentication device, can’t find my backup authentication codes and don’t have a logged-in device. Can I request to delete my Firefox Account?

Is it possible to remove the backup account related to such a locked-out account to allow that account to be associated with the new account created?

Note that the Authy locked account has been abandoned on Firefox for a long time. Not certain if there is a limit time-frame of no account access after which the account may be declared abandoned and may therefore have the backup account unlocked for a new account association to the backup account.

This is what my environment looks like: I am using Firefox (version 109.0) on Ubuntu (version 22.04.1). I installed the 1password extension for Firefox (version 2.5.1). I have allowed the 1Password extension to "Run in Private Windows" (from the Firefox Add-ons Manager).

Description of my issue: In Firefox, there is a Privacy&Security setting that allows you to "Always use private browsing mode". When this setting is enabled, the 1Password extension does not work at all (even if I allowed it to run in private windows). That is, every time I click on the 1Password icon in my browser, an empty browser tab shows up, and nothing more. Instead, if I disable that setting, the extension works correctly.

I'm looking at the User-Agent strings from MacOS systems running the lastest versions of MacOS 11, 12 or 13. They appear to be reporting they are running MacOS X 10.15.7 Since all versions of MacOS X 10.* are now well past EOL, this causes problems when using this at least do some minimal testing against the system being "supported". Yes, I know it's easy to forge your UA strings, but most people do not, and it at least provides a reasonable base line of what to expect from users.

How to prevent a Firefox window to accept new tabs from outside?

I use Firefox on Linux, on a wide screen, usually with multiple windows open at the same time.

Specifically, I have a smallish window containing a calendar view. It's annoying that new tabs get created in that small window, because I have to move them manually to another window and resize that. I'd like to be spared the clicks and drags to get that done, or always needing to remember to move the focus to another Firefox window after doing something with the calendar.

Is there a way to accomplish the following: 1. When I've got a Firefox window open that I don't want new tabs in 2. And I open a link from outside Firefox (say, from a mail in Thunderbird or from my IDE) 3. A new tab doesn't get created in the window from 1. 4. Even if that window has the focus. 5. Instead, the URL gets opened in either a new tab in another Firefox window or a new Firefox window

I'm fine with a stable add-on, if that's what it takes to do this.

Any ideas greatly appreciated!

My primary desktop is mate/compiz on Fedora 36. I typically have 6 Workspaces available, 4 dedicated to specific apps (eg. Firefox runs in WS#2, several terminal sessions in WS#1).

In a terminal window, when I right-click a web URL I get an action menu including an entry "Open Link". Recently the behavior resulting when I select that menu item has changed.

Prior, Desired Behavior: My current workspace switches to that containing Firefox, Firefox receives focus and the URL is opened in a new tab.

New, Undesired Behavior: Firefox is moved from its workspace to my current workspace and the URL is opened in a new tab. I must return Firefox to its "assigned" workspace.

Experimenting suggests the behavior change is due to something in the profile used by Firefox though I'm unable to identify it.

Other browsers (brave, chrome, firefox from mozilla.org rather than from the fedora package repo) do not exhibit the new behavior. Firefox on other systems (some Fedora/mate/compiz, others varying) do not exhibit the new behavior.

Firefox (from Fedora repos) with all addons (only 7) disabled continues to exhibit the new behavior.

A new Firefox update today (to 109.0) continues to exhibit the new, undesired behavior.

As noted above, Firefox from mozilla.org, does not exhibit the new, undesired behavior. But that is with a new profile. If it is started with the profile of the Fedora Firefox, it DOES exhibit the undesired behavior.

Can someone suggest a setting or profile change to restore the old, desired behavior?

Tnx, Jon

Hi beloved community!

I've been experiencing problems with firefox on Ubuntu. Some (if not all) windows randomly bug out and I can instantly tell because:

1. Hover animations stop working completely, in-page and browser ones too (menu, tabs, etc) 2. Animations work if I scroll or click over any element 3. Browser window becomes unmovable, I can't drag the window, only by doing alt+space and selecting move 4. Top bar (URL, tabs, config buttons, minimize, restore, close buttons too) doesn't resize if I get out of full-screen

If I move tabs to a new window they work perfectly, until they don't anymore. It can be almost instantly or it may work perfectly for hours

At first I could ignore it but now it's just getting so annoying it's practically unusable

After downloading about 10 GiB of source code and then building another 15 GiB, to install Firefox you need to use `./mach install` or more correctly: alias install='sudo sh -c "export MOZBUILD_STATE_PATH=$HOME/.mozbuild; ./mach install"'

But to re-install Nightly Firefox on the freshly installed (even the same) OS I will have to either save 25 GiB of source+build (+.mozbuild and other stuff) or to redo everything from scratch (needs at least 1h 20m). I'm having a hard time understanding all the abstractions and redirections from `./mach install` (and Makefile from ./obj-*/ which is automatically generated) to reconstruct a minimal set of things to install Firefox.

I need a bundle of files+dirs which is enough to install everything system-wide for Firefox to work properly. Maybe even simply run `./mach install` in this "minimal build installation" (if possible).

P.S. I'm using Debian based distro(s).
