bold text My FF web pages are way too wide and I have to scroll all the time from side to side, to see the whole page, back and forth! Hate it! Not workable. Not only that, the menu texts (not the fonts on the page) are way too small, unless I reduce the whole page with the limited percentage size, and then none of it is readable to me. For a while 67% size helped but not even that works right and I am CONSTANTLY trying to adjust things so I can see them! It used to work great and now it is a CONSTANT BATTLE TO FUNCTION!

download file size 0

When I download a file .epub (error rate 1%) or .mobi (error rate 3%) or .zip (error rate 0.2%) to my ebooks folder I randomly end up with "filename.ext" of size 0 and one "filename(1).ext" of the correct size and correct content. That error rate is independent of file size but dependent of the file extension.

The download never fails and no file have any defects.

Configuration:

  • Firefox 64bit 104.0 to 106.0.5 on Windows 10 Pro 22H2
  • In Settings: Always ask you where to save files is checked
  • Target folder (confirmed on each download) is a subfolder of Documents
  • Only antivirus is Microsoft Defender.
  • The user account is a Local account there is no one drive or other cloud storage solution active.

After 3 months of tests, I managed to solve the problem with: about:config and set browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone to false. I tough that option was gone in 2015, but apparently it is back.

That is however not a good solution.

Test I did:

  • Adding the download folder as an AV exclusion: no changes.
  • Disabling extensions: no changes.
  • Disabling indexing on the target folder: no changes.
  • Changed targeted folder: no changes.
  • Disabling the file history backup: no changes.

I suspected either a program is monitoring Documents folders for changes and opening the downloaded file concurrently with Firefox. Since disabling Firefox av interface probably seriously modify the timing of directory change notification and Firefox file manipulation, I'm still not sure who is to blame for the problem. If you have any idea on how to debug that, let me know.

Firefox crashes with the same issue as before (https://support.mozilla.org/hu/questions/1395270), but with two minor differences. I'm now using the latest version of ExplorerPatcher and Firefox works fine in safe mode. I tried disabling all the add-ons, themes and extensions in while in safe mode and then launch Firefox, but it didn't work. The developer made the issues and discussion sections read only on the project's GitHub page, so I'm unable to contact them. Here are the logs about the most recent crashes:

So for my main gmail I have 2 step for obvious security reasons, but I want it to trust my PC so that I don't have to pull out my phone every time I try to access it. No matter how many times I click the option to trust this PC it always ask' for the 2 step, and I don't see the PC on the trusted list in my gmail settings. I have already added "mail.google.com" to the exceptions part of the cookie and site data settings, even "account.google.com" but it just doesn't seem to work. What is the obvious thing that I am missing?

I need to create a new profile because I am having problems, the old one appears to be corrupt. I need to keep all my extensions, settings, history, tabs, bookmarks, etc.

So from the profile that has all the settings, I tell Firefox Sync to sync. It says it's syncing.

Then I quit Firefox, open with the profile manager, create a new blank profile, and sign into Firefox Sync using the same Firefox Account.

Within a few minutes, sync completes, and my new browser profile is exactly like an old copy of firefox that I deleted maybe 5 years ago. All my old extensions, tabs, everything.

I need to sync my CURRENT Firefox so I can restore a clean profile to it. Not restore a setup from a copy I deleted years ago.

I've tried this process about 4 times now and the result is always the same. Firefox sync does NOT see my current tabs, extensions, bookmarks, settings, anything. It keeps the ones from years ago no matter what.

I don't want to delete my firefox account and start a new one because it will cause me to lose access to all my forum comments.

A few days ago, I believe, after an update, Firefox changed all my bookmark URLs to Facebook and Messenger. When, I re-enter the bookmark and have the correct URL, the next time I use Firefox, the URL has changed back to the wrong URL.

I have lost years of military and MIA military personnel historic research sites, along with many others. Is there anyway, they can be found and correctly restored?

Today I try to log on to SOCALGAS. This is the Gas company for all of southern cal. using a recently updated version of Firefox browser. The problem started : After logging into site , the next page refused to load. It just recycled over and over again. I open another browser : Bing and the pages needed to pay my mom's bills loaded. After calling the Gas company with my problem I realized the problem was the browser.

How do I fix this problem?

Hello,

When I'm trying to import passwords from other browsers (Safari or Brave) or CSV files generated by Safari and Brave nothing happens. There's not even an option to import the passwords from Safari, look at the attached screenshot. From Brave however the option is available, but even if I check that box nothing happens when I do the import. Do you know why? I've tried it on both Windows and macOS.

I am so fed up losing my pinned tabs.

I want a Firefox facility where I can have permanently pinned(locked tabs) and normal pinned tabs.

The permanent ones must not be able to be removed without myself physically clicking and removing them individually and are persistent when opening new browser instances, cannot be cleaned/removed by other cleaner programs are not saved in History.

Permanently pinned tabs should show a mark on the tab like a red padlock.

I use One Tab, but that has it's down side in that it clears my Tabs from the browser in to one single tab and then it is difficult to manage them, there are others and they all have their failings.

Please provide this locked tab facility.
