There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

Hey everybody. A few weeks ago, my audio stopped working on Google Meet out of the blue. I can still hear everyone, but they can't hear me. Meet works fine in a different browser so it's not my computer/mic. I've cleared my cookies/cache and disabled adblock, which is about where my know how ends. Any help would be much appreciated; I use Meet a lot for a side job and I haven't been able to search my way into a solution. I'm on Mac Catalina with FF 71.

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

I have several folders set up in the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, so they display nicely on the toolbar. However lately they stopped working - if I click it once after starting Firefox, it'll open. But if I try to click a second time, it no longer opens, and just remains in a "highlighted" state. Any reason why it's happening? In the screenshot you can see what it looks like after the "Current" folder is clicked.

The folders are accessible fine if I go to Bookmarks menu item and navigate from there.

Hi,

I would like to address the following feedback to Designers, User Experience Experts, and Developers of Firefox.

I am creating this post to mention something very important about the usuability of Firefox and that people look for in choosing their browsers. Although "just" usability aspects, I think they cannot be overlooked in order to make Firefox the go-to choice of more users.

There are a four (relatilvely) small features that Firefox lacks in respect to Chrome and other major browsers, and a number of people miss them so much that end up using other browsers. Namely:

1) There is no "Type Address + Tab" functionality when typing a URL of a website in the address bar and then pressing Tab so as to directly type the search that a user wants to look for once landing on the given website (this is a famous Chrome feature).

2) a CTRL + F search for a word in a web page does not highlight all words in a page, but only the current one is found (one needs to click enter to find the next one but it does not work like in Chrome or Safari which they highlight ALL instances of the searched text)

3) a laptop trackpad's pinch in/out with two fingers does not allow the zoom of a web page (third party plug ins fail at doing this task properly).

4) ALL other browsers open an incognito window with CTRL + SHIT + N. Why does Firefox does it differenly with CTRL + SHIT + P? This creates confusion for the average browser user.


I think having an attention to detail for such feature is really important. It would increase Firefox's userbase. Although a person choosing Firefox is making an important, usually conscious decision, about privacy, usuability plays an essential role for an average internet user.

I recently had a Black 3TB internal OS Hard Drive installed in my 27in Mac Computer by an Apple associated store. They also transferred my Application Data across from my old Hard Drive to the new one as part of the service. Whilst Catalina interfered with many of my apps, as Catalina is a 64BIT processor, I have overcome many of the problems associated with this new OS installation. The company updated my OS system to Catalina in the process of transferring the Data, and although I never thought at the time that this would occur, so did not mention to them that I wanted to stay with Mojave. But now I have Catalina installed and upgraded all my apps that would not open after installation, to 64Bit including Firefox, but my browser keeps freezing up when using it after a while and stops shutting down when I try to restart my PC to unfreeze Firefox. this is quite annoying as I wish to continue with Firefox as my Web Browser, as I use the LastPass app for my Log In to each site and this is not possible with Safari or Google, can you advise me regarding a solution to this problem as I have deleted Firefox several times and downloaded a new one many times but this does not fix the problem. Regards Brian Shaw.

I'm getting a consistent error message when I attempt to connect with Vudu while on my Firefox browser. I'm able to access via Safari although no luck with Firefox. Can you tell me why this maybe happening??

Just not sure how to fix it. Can anyone out there offer any suggestions for a fix??
