I think I deleted my Firefox by mistake yesterday. I have reinstalled it BUT I have lost all my book marks and downloads which I had gathered over the years. I have tried to follow the instructions to restore the Bookmarks and downloads but this has not worked and I am at my wits end in trying to get back all this imprtant material. Can you help, please?

Hi Everyone,

Trying my luck here as a last resort. I cannot read videos on FF (I end up with the following message "This video file cannot be played.(Error Code: 102630)") except Youtube ones.

I read few articles and already tried the following: make sure I have the latest version of FF, uncheck "Use hardware acceleration when available", install FFMPEG, install K-Lite (and restart FF each time).

Nothing worked so far so any other tips from the community would be great.

I'm using Windows 10 and have a couple of add-ons only (LastPass and uBlock origin).

Thanks a lot in advance,

Max

When downloading pdf, html and other files I recently started getting an "Executable files may contain viruses or other malicious code" warning. This is annoying and definitely nothing I didn't know. Besides, many of these files were written by me, so this simply represents an additional annoyance in my workflow. How do I permanently disable this behavior?

Suddenly every time I want to use Outlook, E-bay or Facebook, I have to put in a password even though with Outlook there is a 'save password' box which I have clicked. This is a recent problem. I am using Windows 10. People have suggested clearing cookies and re-starting the computer - both of which I have done without success. Any help welcome but I am a senior with limited computer skills so please make the suggestions simple! Thanks.

no audio

My audio works on all my browsers except Firefox. I am thinking it was an update that caused this as it used to work until recently.

Thank you

I have an android with Firefox installed, and a Mac where I also use Firefox. When I first installed Firefox on each, the bookmarks matched. I do the bulk of work on my laptop, but occasionally have articles I wish to bookmark on my phone. I have done a sync, but when I go to access the bookmarks on my phone, they are not updated to what is on my laptop.

When I check to see what devices I have connected through Firefox, my phone does not show up, and when I hit the link to "connect a device" all it does it take me to a link to send a text to invite my phone to install it. Which, it's already installed.

I really need these bookmarks to talk to each other properly. What am I missing?

On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

If I shutdown my computer while Firefox is open, it will start up automatically with all of my previous tabs open next time I turn on my computer. It does this faster than my VPN can start up, thus exposing my true IP to what ever sites I had open when I turned off my computer. Is there any way to make it so that Firefox doesn't do this?

It use to be after sizing the URL and Search to be even lengths, and then in Customize placing the Reload icon between them, the 2 windows would remain relatively the same length. Now, however when completing the steps the Search window is reduced considerably (see attached). How to get the URL and Search portions more or less equal?

I'm not sure when lockwise went from an optional add on to "you know what I'm just going to run myself anyway" but I already have a password manager and I want to disable Lockwise. Every article or help post I find insists Lockwise is an Addon but it's not in that list and when i go to the Logins & Passwords tab I can see what Lockwise is doing but I can't do anything about it let alone switch it off.

I've been using Lastpass for years and I'm more than happy with it and I find Lockwise competing with Lastpass and pushing itself to the front of the queu when entering passwords on sites and I don't want that.

How do I disable it please?
