When I visit this site: https://www.mnot.net/blog/2022/06/22/chromium-only

I get a server error message. That’s fine, but then I notice I am not able to press the back button. It is grayed out as if there is no history to go back to.

This happens both if I click on that click from a page and if load a page, e.g. google.com, and then paste the link into the URL bar.

If I perform the same actions in safari, I also get an error, but I am still able to use the back button.

This is not the only URL that has caused this issue, but it is the first where I remembered to save the URL.

I am on Firefox Focus version 100.0 and iPhone 12 mini iOS version 15.5.

Thanks and keep up the great work!

I had a partial crash of Firefox browser where some windows with multiple tabs closed. I believe it was caused by my processor overheating. After correcting my processor overheating issue and restarting, the remaining windows that were open before the reboot restored as the previous session but the windows and tabs that crashed did not recover. Would those be backed up anywhere?

Hi,

I have been using Ff Focus for years and love it.

When I want to navigate to a site, I want to tap the URL bar and type the URL (or first letter of using the handy auto-complete). That used to work well. Maybe 2 months ago, the behavior of the URL bar seems to have changed.

Before, when I tapped the URL bar, all text would be selected. That made it easy to begin typing and overwrite the existing URL. Now, when I tap the URL bar, the cursor is placed at the end of the current URL. To erase the existing URL, I have to additionally tap the little X. It is small and hard to accurately tap. I often have to tap it several times.

The new behavior is less desirable. Most of the time when I tap the URL bar, it is because I want to type in a new URL. It is almost never the case that I want to append text to the URL.


I suppose this new behavior solves the problem that if I want to highlight only a portion of the URL, it is easier. It used to be very difficult to remove the selection when all text was selected.

I understand it’s impossible to please everyone. I just wanted to give feedback that the new behavior is less than ideal for me.

Either way, great product and thanks for the selfless work.

I have a habit of keeping a number of pages open to return to under iPhone iOS Firefox. I also generally keep one “current” page open, usually a DuckDuckGo search page, when I close the app, expecting it to come up again immediately when I reopen it. For the past couple of weeks however, reopening Firefox blasts me about 10 miles up into one of my “saved” pages, instead of my “current” one. Why? Why won’t Firefox remember my current page after years of doing so just fine?

I have installed TB91 on Windows 10. I used the new CardDav in-built feature to connect my Address book with my Google Contacts. The initial connection imported all of the contacts correctly, but I am finding that the syncing only works one way. Any additions or changes I make to Thunderbird Address Book do show up in the Google Contacts, BUT any changes or additions to the Google Contacts are not reflected in the TB Address book. I have installed TB91 on an Apple MacBook, connecting to the same Google accounts, and the syncing works perfectly in both directions. Email and Calendar are syncing just fine. It's only a problem with the Contacts/Address book on Windows 10. Any suggestions for what might be causing the one-way problem on the Windows 10 desktop, or how to fix it? I'd be happy to do do a total uninstall and reinstall if necessary, but it would be great to find a simpler solution. Thank you.

Hi, I have Firefox installed running under Windows 10. I have a number of extensions installed including Firefox Containers. I have had to change my router. When I restart my system with the new router connected to the internet and open Firefox I find that I cannot open any websites assigned to personal containers.

I switched back to my old router and everything works ok - I can open all sites including those assigned to containers.

When I switch back to usuing my new router however I again find I cannot access sites assigned to containers - error message is “Secure Connection Failed”.

I’ve removed the Firefox container extension.

Using my old router I can connect to all websites in the normal expected manner - none show they are assigned to Containers.

Using my new router however I still find that having opened Firefox I cannot access any website previously assigned to a Container. If I use another browser (Edge), trying to open a website previously assigned to a Firefox Container simply opens my router home page.

It would appear therefore that despite having removed the Firefox Container extension, when I boot up and connect to the internet via my new router there is still information stored somewhere on my system which is preventing my accessing websites previously assigned to containers.

How do I remove all necessary information from my system so that I can access all websites?

Thanks for your help

My father uses Thunderbird as an email client, and he had been using the email address from his local phone company. He is moving and terminating his phone/internet account with that company. Will he still be able to see his existing messages as long as "keep messages in all folders for this account on this computer" is checked (under Synchronization and storage).

I would also assume that he would need to uncheck the options under settings that tell Thunderbird to check for new messages.

Other than that, would he need to do anything else to make sure he can still see his existing email messages?

- You updated and took my bookmarks away (something I needed and used all the time. How can you do that? Really? - also every time I go on line I get another stupid sign at the top right telling me to update again. I'm being pestered to do something that screwed me over. - I’ve tried the (old firefox date folder, thing) and it didn’t work. (so please don't suggest that) - I have to go looking for what bookmarks I have left (no more drop-down menu with all of them right there where over the years I've organized them)

I used to like this program, a lot. If I can’t get my Book marks back I’m done with FireFox. What the hell were you thinking?

I have a spare computer I don't use frequently, but which has a synced Firefox installation on it.

I am concerned that as I add and remove bookmarks, it will get further behind and, when it is reconnected, will cause deleted bookmarks to reappear or new bookmarks to disappear. Alternately I'm concerned that the change queue might exceed some size and cause sync to generally fail across my devices. My tablet got "stuck in the past" once and couldn't send or receive new bookmarks despite Sync seemingly working and connected, so I'm worried that perhaps that's what happened already.

On the other hand, if I were to remove that device from Sync, what happens if I were to add it back to Sync?

...If I deleted its bookmarks during or after disconnecting it? I feel like this might cause the bookmarks on my other devices to get deleted too.

...If I don't delete its bookmarks? I feel like this might cause any bookmarks I deleted in the interim to reappear.

Also, is there a maximum size to Sync? I have several thousand bookmarks.
