I am trying to log into my mozilla firefox account for a different email, but when I try logging in, it says I need a verification code and emails me it. When I enter in the code (no more than 30 seconds after requesting the code), I get a message saying "invalid authorization code". I've tried over 10 times by this point, but it still won't accept any verification codes it sent to me.

I used to use Firefox but changed to Waterfox Classic a couple of years ago. I have now downloaded Waterfox Current but can't transfer my bookmarks and passwords to the new Waterfox. All the suggestions on the sub-Reddit group do not work because I am not sufficiently computer literate to understand them and/or they are incorrect. Syncing did nothing so I am back on Firefox but syncing here does not bring all the bookmarks from Waterfox Classic to Firefox either. As noted, I am to all intents and purposes computer illiterate plus I am in my mid-seventies with no teenagers around to solve techie problems for me. I really don't want to have to open my bookmarked sites in Firefox and them bookmark them manually, so is there an easy way to get my bookmarks and passwords from Waterfox Classic to Firefox. If so, can someone point me in the direction of an idiot's guide so I can revert to Firefox as my default browser? Thank you

Tried to download bills from FPL, Comcast and Verizon and never got to see them due to Firefox rapidly opening a seemingly infinite number of tabs. The only way to stop it was to close all tabs. When I went to Google instead, I was able to do normal download.

Thanks for reviewing my threads.

After making a new account, I did not get past threads into this account.

I find after update, firefox work OK, but after considerable usage, it slows down.

I had a setting to clean up cache after closing. Will add blocker make larger files for scanning. What are the folders to look to do clean up?

I am getting this irritating popup frequently, when I am using yahoo email with "Looks like your ad-blocker is on"

How do I disable this pop-ups?

Thanks for your guidance.

In the Search panel of the Preferences page I have changed my preferred search engine to DuckDuckGo. It will stay as this until I quit and reopen Firefox, when it reverts back to Google. I've tried this a few times but it always goes back. I've looked for a cookie that might be being deleted, but there are none on my machine (that I can see).

I'm running Firefox 72.0.2 on a Mac with Catalina 10.15.2 and also have Firefox apps on an iPhone and iPad.

Can anyone shed any light? Thanks in advance

When I try to bookmark a website, I am offered a list of most recently used folders (or choose to select from the entire set of bookmarks). If I want to select from the MRU, and click one line, the selection reverts to another line (last used) before I can click on "done". If I am fast enough, I can select the wanted folder, which then becomes the new "default".

Also if I do try to choose and create a new folder in the bookmarks, before I am able to type a character, the dialog box closes immediately and I am left with "New Folder" - which I then have to double click on to edit the name.

I currently have version 72.0.2 and it is so slow.

I suspected an ISP problem although I have fibre optics but I just have to compare FIreFox with another browser to see that FireFox is the problem.

For instance, on the same site, I can call up a different page in around 5 seconds with FireFox whereas the same change of page takes well under 2 seconds with the Avast Browser.

Opening 3 tabs simultaneously in FireFox when I launch it takes YONKS whereas it used to load all 3 pages in a blink.

I already have add ons like "Disable HTML5 Autoplay" installed to speed up things.

What is the solution please?

I have my preferences set to "Always Ask" for when I click on PDF files. Occasionally, I would prefer to open PDFs in the browser. However, if I select Firefox instead of Acrobat Reader from the dialog box, I get the same dialog again, because Firefox--rightly--interprets this as another request to open a PDF and since my preferences are "Always ask," that's what it does. I would like to be able to tell it not to ask in this one instance, while retaining my preference generally. I don't see a way to do this.

There are a couple of possible workarounds, none of which is entirely satisfactory. I could set my preferences to Preview in Firefox, and then if I prefer to open in Acrobat right-click, select Save As, and then open the local file. This is less than ideal because it adds a few steps and reverses my order of preference (most of the time I want to be asked so I can either open in Acrobat or save the file).

I could change my preferences on those rare occasions when I want to preview the file in Firefox but, again, this adds steps.

I could set the preferences to open the file in the browser and then click the download option. This might be the shortest workaround--just adds one step--but it is still an extra step and, again, reverses my preferred order.

I suspect there's no solution to this because it requires Firefox to be able to distinguish between a general preference and a specific preference, and that would(?) require extensive additional coding. But I figured I'd ask in case I'm overlooking something. Lacking that, if anyone has a more elegant workaround than the ones I've described, I'm open to suggestions!

Thanks.

I currently have Privacy Badger and Privacy Possum installed and activated in my desktop browser, but I also have Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection turned on and set to Strict as well. Some sites I go to, both Badger and Possum say that they are blocking trackers, yet the Firefox ETP Shield doesn't indicate that anything is being blocked at all. Is it possible that both Badger and Possum are interfering with Firefox ETP, keeping it from working by getting to the trackers first? If that is the case, is it a good idea to keep these addons or should I let ETP handle all the work with protecting me from trackers?

In Firefox on my Mac, I frequently click on the Page Actions ("three little dots") at the end of the URL bar, and then from the options that pop up, click on "Share" that takes me to the Mac Share Sheet options (Air Drop, Messages, Mail, etc.)

In Mac System Preferences for the keyboard, you can create keyboard shortcuts for any application, and I'd like to create one for this action in Firefox. I just need to know the menu pathway. For example, in Safari, it is "File->Share->[Air Drop, Messages, Mail, etc.]"

I cannot find/figure out the menu pathway in Firefox for the Mac Share Sheet. Can anyone help??

I've added screenshots of: 1) Accessing the Share Sheet in Firefox via the "three little dots" in the URL bar 2) The Mac System Preferences Keyboard Shortcuts creation window showing the menu pathway title I'm needing to figure out 3) The Share Sheet menu pathway in Safari for comparison/reference

TIA!

wysiwyg – when attempting to print online WSJ article, text at right margin gets cut off, despite what appears on the screen. In Chrome, the article prints correctly, except for the fact that (unlike in Firefox) if there is an ad block in the middle of the article Chrome will print a white space (say, about 3 inches in height) where ad appeared. Suggested fix – to delete print_printer – did not work. Second suggested fix – to edit prefs.js file did not work. My HP laptop’s resolution is 3840 x 2160 which may be part of the problem. Nevertheless in Chrome text prints correctly.

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!

Hi Everyone, When I try to access a particular website, there is no real graphical display - simply text scattered everywhere.

I visit loads of different sites each day, and this is the only one where this problem occurs.

The website Owner thinks it might be something to do with a CSS file(?) but, as I do not have the problem elsewhere, I am unsure.

If anyone can help on this, I'd be very grateful.

Thank you.
