If i open the Passwordmanager firefox askes my masterpassword. After entering it correctly the list shown is empty. exporting to file doesn't export. It shows where to export and the filename but nothing is saved.

Logins still work using autofill so the data is still stored somewhere.

If I try to attach or download (only with the Always ask you where to save files option turned on) a file in any website, the browser doesn't open the Files window. Drag and drop works. I am able to choose the download folder from the settings and upload any folder, though.

I'm running Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

Selecting text on any page, there's no visual feedback of what is selected until mouse is released.

There's no feedback that selection starts when mouse button is pressed down, no visual feedback while moving the mouse with the button pressed and only upon releasing the button do I get to see the selection.

Selecting works fine in other browsers (chromium) and was working the other day before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 (was using 20.04 before) wiping my previous Firefox. So this issue is on an almost vanilla Firefox version 104.0.2.

(Incidentally I can highlight that version number and only that version number in the about-box and I get continuous dynamic feedback of what part of the version number I highlight, but nowhere else in Firefox.)

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers.

I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.

I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when I ask how we can disable the "Update available" popup in the top right-hand corner that appears every time we open the browser.

I have auto-updates turned off because I would like to choose myself when to update the browser and really hate being nagged by the update popup to do so!!!

To be clear, I don't want to turn off updates entirely with the "policies.json" file that I've seen with other questions; I just want to disable the update popup and still be able to update periodically AT MY OWN DISCRETION.

I really don't know why it's so hard for FF developers to give us that popup disabling option. I have always suggested using FF to people I know for over 10 years, but will no longer do so and will be looking for an alternate browser if this continues.

FF is becoming more like Microsoft by trying to dictate what's best for us at the expense of user experience.

Hi, I am using Ubuntu 20.04LTS and Firefox 104.

My Firefox cleans up on every shutdown. Therefore I have to enter my primary password after every fresh startup, when I open a page that needs a stored password the first time.

I cannot exactly remember since which version, but for like the past 1 or 2 months there is a strange behavior. - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it shows me 4 Primary Password dialogues (basically 4 Tabs need the credentials)

in the past: - Firefox Startup - I open my daily tabs - it showed only 1 Primary Password dialogue

When I open Firefox and only open 1Tab with a stored credential, the dialogue shows only once, i enter my primary password and from there I can open my daily tabs without a further dialogue.

I think this is an unwanted behavior and needs to be rolled back.

I am not able to download any kind of file, from any kind of website to my disk. I am able to select open on the download dialog, and this will open the file and save it to the temp directory firefox uses for this function, but this does not save the files to disk/the download folder like I want to. I am unable to "Save image as..." as well, since this is considered a download. There is no record of these downloads even being attempted in the download history.

So I read on Reddit the intentions of Google with Chrome and adblocker add-ons, and I was worried because Brave (my Android browser until today) is based on Chromium as well. I've always been a Firefox user on desktop, and now on mobile as well since the dev team fixed the rendering errors of Firefox on Android. Ok so here goes my question: I've installed Brave on desktop (Linux) since I want my saved mobile login data on Firefox as well. So I exported a plaintext (unencrypted) *.csv file from Brave desktop and I am unable to import it onto Firefox (also on desktop).

I'm aware of the about:config key to be able to import CSV files to Firefox password manager, and is set to True. But the file does not import at all, so I opened the Browser Console and this is the logger output when I try to import the CSV file(screenshot also available):

``` eval() and eval-like uses are not allowed in the Parent Process or in System Contexts (Blocked usage in “chrome://global/content/third_party/d3/d3.js”) d3.js:2040:16

call to Function() blocked by CSP d3.js:2040

   parse chrome://global/content/third_party/d3/d3.js:2040
   parseRows chrome://global/content/third_party/d3/d3.js:2088

   importFromCSV resource://gre/modules/LoginCSVImport.jsm:161
   InterpretGeneratorResume self-hosted:1458
   AsyncFunctionNext self-hosted:668

``` Then I looked into a CSV file generated by Firefox and it has the password hashed, so how do I need to proceed?

Is there any tool to convert the CSV contents?


Really, I want to use Firefox on all my devices but this change (for good) came from nowhere...

Hope someone has had this issue and can help me.

I changed the setup Privacy and Security Autoplay to 'Allow Audio and Video' -- no audio. I've restarted in troubleshoot mode -- no audio.

I use a laptop with Fedora 36 installed. Firefox is version 104.0.1

Until a few days ago, there were no problems with video display. But since a few days, video content that is offered by the news site from NOS (Dutch television) is not displayed anymore. I only get this error: The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.

Also some content on Youtube aborts. For example loading https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qq0BUiEs3JM results in this error: Er is een fout opgetreden. Probeer het later opnieuw. (Afspeel-ID: Ui0fzPxdSexgYcZ4).' (An error occured, try later again).

When using the Chrome Browser both websites can be used without giving errors implying that all the codecs are available.

How can I detect why video is blocked?

(Twitter also gives problems. After a fraction of a second, it stops displaying video)
