I managed to explode my computer this weekend and I lost, among other things, my bookmarks in Firefox. They can't be recovered from windows.old as Windows somehow decided to replace the old windows.old by a new one with nothing useful in it.

I still have all my bookmarks in my account, though, which I know from looking at my Android phone. Now, I'm just scared that if I sync, they will get deleted from my phone instead of synced back to my computer. I could not find any specific answer to this; can someone help me? Do I have anything to do to make sure it goes the right way?

Thanks!

I'm unable to login to Outlook through Firefox on my desktop - Chrome works fine, and I'm not having issues when logging in to Outlook on my laptop using Firefox. After entering my username and password, I see a white page with "Working..." flickering on the tab, then a "X-Redir-Error" pops up. I have tried updating and restarting Firefox, clearing cookies, and using a private window - I was walked through troubleshooting steps by IT at my school as well, but it seems very clear that the issue is with the Firefox browser, and not my Outlook account. Any other suggestions to fix? Thank you!

I just discovered a gigantic security flaw. If I go back in my history, I can pull up a website such as Experian credit boost. When I pull it up, The logon screen appears and I can see the number of digits that my password contains. NOW I thought that was very bad, however, I can click on the eyeball and the password is fully revealed. what is this about?? I mean anyone with access to this history link can get my password??? As a lifelong insurance man, I am very paranoid about security but broke down and started using Lockwise. Does that have anything to do with it? Need help immediatly.

Software: Manjaro Linux, GNOME, Xorg, Firefox 81 Hardware: nvidia GTX 1080 and AMD RX 570

I have a multigpu Linux machine and would like to configure Firefox to only use the AMD card for hardware acceleration.

Rationale: My Xorg is configured to only use the RX 570. My GTX1080 is mostly used to pass through to a Windows VM, but occasionally I do use it in Linux so do not want to disable it completely. This is usually seamless, when the card is not in use: When I start up the Windows VM, it unbinds the GTX1080 from the driver and passes the hardware through. When Firefox is running with hardware acceleration enabled, however, it can not unbind the GTX1080. It seems that Firefox is "using" the nvidia card, so I just want to disable that without disabling hardware acceleration entirely.

Hi All

I know this is the firefox forum but when I post in the thunderbird forum no one ever answers any questions in there and this is driving me nuts so was hoping someone here might also be familiar enough with thunderbird as this forums always so helpful!

Anyways I have a number of message filters set up for 5 different newsletters I get. I want to keep them even though I rarely read is just the nature of the newsletter. So I have 5 filters set up to redirect them into their own sub folder and also be marked as read.

This have been working fine for years now without issue. But about 3-4 weeks ago I started to notice the newsletters would show up in my inbox. I would try and run the filters from the menu option and nothing would happen with the messages so I went into the filter panel and noticed that only these 5 filters were uncheckmarked so was why they were not working. So I rechecked them and ran the filter again and worked fine and I thought that was it. But few days later same thing the messages again showed up in my inbox rather then sub folder so this time I went right into the filter panel and same thing only these 5 were unchecked so rechecked and ran the filters.

It seems to be almost a daily routine. I am going to try and remove them and then re-add them and see if that fixes it but if not does anyone know of this issue with thunderbird and is there any solution just in case redoing the rules does not fix this.

All the other filter rules work fine never unchecked is just these 5 which just so you know all come from the same site just different language course as comes from languagepod101 just each filter is a different language but all the same base website.

Thanks

Je n'ai aucun son avec ma version de firefox 81.0.2, la vidéo fonctionne par contre. Je suis sous windows 10 home, aucun problème par contre avec Edge ou google chrome, l'absence de son est vraiment propre à Firefox car le son fonctionne parfaitement avec les autres navigateurs et les autres applications. Ce ne sont pas non plus les extensions qui sont responsables car démarré avec les modules désactivés c'est pareil, l'anti virus n'est lui non plus pas en cause. J'ai désinstallé Firefox puis ré-installer c'est pareil ! j'ai aussi démarré avec un nouveau profil sans succés Le problème peut-il venir de la config de Firefox ? je précise aussi que mes plugins sont à jour Pouvez-vous m'aider ? mon adresse mail : galium.aparine@laposte.net

I deal with a couple organizations that use CRES for external emails. The sender sends an HTML attachment via regular email. Opening the attachment goes to a login screen and displays the message after the user enters credentials.

I can open the attachment using Edge or Chrome but not Firefox. After I enter credentials in Firefox, I just get a screen showing the word "Error".

Has Mozilla looked at this problem and is there a solution, or should I just use the other browsers for these messages?

Thanks, Ken.

When I open all my bookmarks (I have over 200 tabs), the articles from getpocket tend to fail.

In previous versions of Firefox, when I opened a huge number of tabs, the CPU would max out even after waiting several hours.

I installed Peter Simonyi's addon which opens tabs slowly and it works, but this addon is not actively monitored by Firefox.

When the latest version of Firefox came out, I was really happy because the 100% CPU problem went away, but to my dismay most of the getpocket articles failed to load.

I was trying to download Android-x86, which, apparently, nowadays, has become a little shady (too many ads, etc.); so, I chose to download from the "osdn.net" mirror, as the FossHub one just gave me "403 forbidden" errors. So I chose the file and clicked to download it; then the confirmation popup appeared, and it said the file was coming from "xtom.com" (I'm looking at it now from the Firefox Library, but I don't think that was the website... It was something else, I think...). A little while after the download started, the whole computer drastically slowed down, and I couldn't open the download tab in Firefox, I could open everything else, for example, the Bookmarks menu or the Overflow Menu, but, specifically, not the Downloads tab. It then finished, and I promptly deleted the downloaded file on Explorer. The Download tab still wouldn't open; then I restarted Firefox. When I opened the download library, lots of items are shuffled in position.

Could I be infected by a Malware just from downloading a file? I didn't even open it. But the behavior is so strange...

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!

When Firefox has been running for some time it becomes very unresponsive. This is a very well known and very longstanding problem. The only solution is to simply restart Firefox. Unfortunately, if one has multiple tabs open, restarting Firefox will not reload those opened tabs. This is a gigantic PITA as this user usually has more than ten tabs open, many with various and sundry search results. Which I then have to laboriously open new tabs for and re-enter all the different search terms.

Is there any way to restart Firefox WITH those tabs ?!?!??!?!

After more than ten very satisfactory years of Firefox use do I really have to switch to another browser that doesn't require constant restarts and pray that I can find equivalent privacy and ad-blocking extensions ?
