Somehow, my computer knows my Firefox password. But it has been so long since I've needed to know it, I've forgotten it. Firefox was synced to my phone. My phone died and I have a new one. (Actually, I just installed a new custom rom on my rooted phone). How do I sync it without knowing my password? Or how can I get my laptop to tell me the password for Firefox that it clearly knows? I'd rather not lose my bookmarks and numerous account passwords.

Updated to version 68.0 this morning, and line wrapping of long text lines still happens even with the plain_text.wrap_long_lines set to false. I've set and reset it, restarted each time. I have to use Ctrl-U to display the page properly.

I create many plain text reports that are legal page size, in landscape (don't ask, not my decision, it just has to be). It's not a deal-breaker, but it is an annoyance.

From similar issues w/FF, I can only guess my problems w/losing settings is due to User.js file OR my use of Ublock Origin. Now I turn off Ublock once in a while as I've learned it may be causing FF to give me the "page not found/server" error page.

Seems to me by using Sync FF should be able to keep Tops sites where they should be and keep them pinned. Make no sense to me.

Anyhow, trying to read the How to fix preferences page but I gotta hang it up and get some sleep.


Thanks for any input. Hopefully the .js solution will work w/o hosing any Add-ons, etc.

This is a fairly recent issue. The browser is up to date and runs fine except it mostly doesn't want to hide/minimize when clicking the - in the right corner. If I close and reopen it it works for a bit and stops shortly after. This is super annoying as I use this ALL the time for my work. Any idea... ? thanks

Plain and simple it's impossible to get Firefox Quantum to increase font size or magnification size and *stay that way* either between restarts of Firefox or when another tab is openend. Addons and plugins don't work, instructions for how to hack it are all over the place. Me? I'm moving all my bookmarks over to Chrome which in spite of all the controversy makes it a breeze to increase font and/or magnification size and keep it that way.

I find the Quick Find keyboard shortcut ' for links in Firefox very useful for navigating a large portion of the web with keyboard only, but I notice that it doesn't work with most overlaid content, for example most GDPR dialogs or prompts to please log in or register. Is there a setting or add-on for Firefox to fix that or would a simple change to the HTML make that content searchable with Quick Find?

Example: Delete cookies. Open Yahoo. Press 'OK. Search result not found. Press Ctrl-F OK. Search result found. Then it's possible to press Tab and Shift-Tab to select the OK link, but by pressing the apostrophe key it apparently never works for any links on overlay windows.

Disclosure: I had asked this question four months ago on superuser, but didn't get any comments or answers (https://superuser.com/questions/1413795/include-overlay-content-e-g-gdpr-dialogs-in-firefox-quick-find-for-links)

This involves Firefox on Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS. I have been using Firefox on my MacBook since 2012, and been syncing to my Android phones since 2015-ish (a Huawei, then Samsung, then another Samsung, replacing them as they broke). I never had any problems. I can't remember if I was able to access already synced bookmarks from broken phones, but since I move my mobile bookmarks into desktop bookmark folders pretty often, I was never bothered enough to check. Last October, my MacBook's logic board broke. Not long after, my phone broke. I got a secondhand iPhone, and signed into sync, but nothing synced up. I assume because my devices are already dead and no longer syncing? Is there anyway for me to access my laptop bookmarks? I still have the hard drive from the MacBook.

I finally have access to a computer again, this time a Windows desktop, and logged in to my Firefox sync to see if I could find any of my disappeared bookmarks. Nope, but something weird happened. I have about 200 bookmarks on my iPhone, and the first 139 migrated to the desktop. They show up under the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder on the desktop, but I can no longer see them on my iPhone. The most recent 20 or so bookmarks are still available on my iPhone, but don't appear on the desktop. What just happened?

While going through all the help pages, I discovered that I do have a second Firefox profile, though I opened it up and there isn't anything on it. Not sure if that matters.

Thank you!

Hi, have used Firefox for years, but on windows 10 now: Cannot attach files from my PC to Hotmail enails because the explore file windows does not open when clicking attach clip. Cannot save an internet page because after clicking save page from Fierrefox menu dropdown selection, nothing happens. Cannot print to pdf information from pages (as bank statements with print buttons) because of "cannot open file. Access denied" error. Same problem if what to print is just any internet page. NO problem downloading files of any type. NO problem doing any of this with Google Chrome. Have tried many solutions including refreshing Firefox. Antivirus and Firewall is standard Microsoft Windows 10 Defender

I have an Addon acting up, Webroot Filtering Extension. I can disable it, but I would like to remove and download fresh. The 3 dots by the extension does not have option to remove like the other Addons. Webroot is no longer showing the check mark when doing a search. There is a clear circle where the check mark should be. I am not sure if this started when I updated to Windows 10 1903 or when going to Firefox 68? I have disabled and enabled Webroot Filtering Extension and that doesn't help, restarts don't help.
