I've used Firefox for several years. Up until recently, anytime I would type the beginning of a heavily visited site, I could simply hit enter and it would autocomplete the website for me. It doesn't do that anymore, and I either have to type out the entire website, click it in the 'suggestions' that drop down, or click it in my bookmarks. I used to be able to type 'gmai' and hit enter to go to gmail, now it just searches 'gmai' on Google. Is there some setting I'm missing? This is extremely frustrating.

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

Hello,

My wife and I both use the same computer and before, she used to use Firefox exclusively while I used Chrome exclusively. I've decided to move away from Chrome and into Firefox myself. I have discovered the use of different "Profiles" to keep our browser separate. I even created two shortcuts to load up our profiles separately. However, it keeps the firefox icon on the taskbar the same for both of us. While I don't see a Huge issue with it long-term potentially, is there a possibility I can make it so Firefox opens in a way that there are two different... programs? Where she has one icon on the taskbar, and I have my own? That way it is truly "separate"?

Thank you.

I use Firefox sync to share logins and passwords between my home and work computer. I set this up a few years ago. Now I want to sync another computer, but I don't remember the sync password. I believe it's written in a code book in my office, which has been closed due to Covid 19 since March. How can I change my sync password while preserving my login and password info? Many of my passwords were generated by Firefox and not something I would ever remember.

I can see my current logins and passwords on a sync enabled computer, so in theory I can copy and re-enter them all. But there are hundreds, and that would many hours. If I was willing to do this, is there a way that I can enter the logins and passwords into a table in Firefox without having to visit every website, log in, and re-save the login info? At this point my only two options seem to be to not use my sinced profile on that computer, or to spend all day manually setting everything up again. Thanks.

Firefox in Site Specific Browser Mode not expanding my dropdowns with the Mouse Click.

I am launching a website in the Site Specific Browser (-ssb) mode from a command line.

Command Line: firefox.exe -ssb https://appsrv38-eam.rizing.io:443/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/vesta/ge_lam_c/index.html?sap-client=200&&geoid=FLG01AGP&&lrpid=0100000032&&sapobject=NO&&strno=U-G-D-OH-M-44224-028

This site has dropdowns (HTML Select Elements):

<select class="inputInfo" id="objTypes" ></select>  

After I launch the website the dropdowns will not expand with a mouse click. I have posted a screenshot of the site. If it is launched in -ssb mode the dropdowns will not expand. If I launch the site in -kiosk mode or with a normal Firefox browser the dropdowns expand fine. Everything works as it should. Its just with the -ssb mode that I am having these issues. I am populating the dropdowns with some Javascript but I have used normal HTML to populate the dropdowns as well but neither will expand in -ssb mode.

If anyone has any idea of why this is happening please let me know.

Thanks, Ray

Hello.

I'm not sure how this happened, but I have a listing in Servers in the Certificate Manager with the following information:

Server: www.bignox.com:443 Certificate Name: VMware Lifetime: Permanent

Trying to go anywhere with bignox.com does not work as its using the VMware certificate for some reason. If I delete it and go to the site, Firefox says the site is not trusted. I cannot get to bignox.com via any other web browser (Edge, Chrome, etc..) as I get the same type of security warnings. I do have vmware on my computer. I can connect to bignox.com just fine inside the VMware. If I uninstall the VMware, then I get security exceptions.

My question is, where does Firefox see this information? I have no idea how this happened, but I would like to get rid of this association.

Thanks

In Windows 10, in a tablet environment, things aren't working properly. I'm referring primarily to the onscreen keyboard. In Windows Tablet mode, an onscreen keyboard should appear in address bar and text fields. Firefox is killing that onscreen keyboard. The keyboard appears, but then immediately disappears. There also is a visual glitch occurring in the title-bar simultaneous with the killing of the OSK (on screen keyboard). This only happens in Firefox. OSK in MS Edge functions great for example. In desktop mode, but still physically in a tablet environment (Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga X1, folded, portrait mode for example), no OSK appears at all anywhere. This is not working well for me and will likely be a problem for others as we continue to approach the future. I truly hope that Firefox prioritizes Windows 10 tablet environments. It really is going to be important to many users.
