In about:config javascript.enabled = True

I didn't change any settings there.

If I place, for example, " "options_ui": {

   "page": "settings.html",
   "open_in_tab": true
 },"

in the manifest.json of the extension, it does open the settings.html page as intended. Problem is that no JS script on settings.html works, be it if it's inline HTML or as a separate file (I tried separate file, as I thought it might be a security thing).

I mean even simple JS such as console.log or

"<button onclick="showPopup()">Show Popup</button>

   <script>
       function showPopup() {
           alert('Hello! This is a popup.');
       }
   </script>"

Other actually installed extensions - their JS on settings pages runs.

I also tried running settings.html as a popup, and I succesfully done so, it's just that once again JS didn't work...

I'm at my wits end, I have googled, I have chatted with the ChatGPT, took me hours thinking it was something wrong with my code... I'm actually making something useful, never done before (it reads out youtube subtitles via TTS, providing ability to still hear original sound, its emotions, no need to look at the screen and it's also a passive language learning type of thing), and it works, it's just that setting page's JS, which I think I need to allow users change speed of TTS and volume of the TTS

Hi,

I've imported around 200+ passwords from another web browser as '.csv file' in Firefox from option of 'import from a file.'

During the import, I was logged into my Firefox account as well.

But, after resetting PC, I downloaded the Firefox and logged on with my Firefox account, and there are only 29 passwords showing up, rest of the passwords are not there.

And, now I do not have access to that .csv file as well.

I am on Windows 11 and had reset my PC with option to 'Keep My Files' so there is no data loss as per my side or on the hard disk drive.

Please help me to get those passwords back. They are extremely important to me.

Thanks in advance!

How do I permanently remove this new Bing search engine from Firefox Browser? I don't like Bing. I go into settings, and change my default search engine to Google. But, the moment I search for something it shows that its Bing in the top left corner of the page. I can't get rid of it. Please help! I really don't like Bing! It has never fully helped me find what I'm looking for, or been thorough when searching for what something means. Can you please help me remove Bing from Firefox Browser? I sent 2 images showing what I mean. The first shows me wanting to use google to search for a word. And, in the second is what happens after I do that. You can clearly see Microsoft Bing in the top left corner. Thank You for any and all of your help & time!

Two days ago, my firefox browser started not restoring the previous sessions. I changed nothing in the configuration and I don't remember I had a crash. The option "Restore Previous Session" does not appear in the "3-bar menu > history" and it appears grayed in the History Firefox main menu.

What I've already tried or verified following the instructions of mozilla forum: 1) Settings > general > “Open previous windows and tabs” is checked as it always have been; I unchecked and and rechecked but nothing changed; 2) Settings > Privacy & Security > “remember history” is selected. Also tried to Settings > Privacy & Security > "Use custom settings for history" with "Always use Private Browsing mode" not checked. No success 3) I also deleted sessionstore-backups folder under my profile. The new created folder, even after closing some new sessions, has only the "recovery.jsonlz4" and "recovery.baklz4" files. There is no "previous.jsonlz4" inside which seems weird. 4) through about:config I checked that browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash was true. In fact, I have Firefox in a second computer with no sessions restoring problem. I compared all browser.sessionstore.xxxx variables and the values are the same.

I still have the problem and do not know what to try next. Reset Firefox?

I've just had to completely reinstall windows without being able to backup my files (I couldn't launch my computer in order to actually back them up) meaning I've lost my recovery codes. I thought this would be fine as I could just sign back into firefox on this new install of Windows but as it turns out I must've forgotten to put my sign in information into my password manager. Again, I thought this would be okay as I still have access to the email I used to sign up to my firefox sync but I got the message saying I'd lose my data which isn't fine and now I'm at a bit of a loss. I've had to use a spare email to make an account and ask here but I'd really love my old account back. Is there any way at all I can get back into my account without losing my bookmarks and passwords? If not, how much information would I end up actually losing? I'm slightly unclear on that part. Do I lose absolutely everything? I'm a bit stressed about all of this ontop of losing all of my old computer files so I'm sorry if this is a commonly asked question but I was struggling to find anything that helped me D:

Any advice at all would be really appreciated thank you so much!!

Why has this started up again? Pdf files are automatically downloading to my computer when all I want to do is look at the file. So many files that now need to be trashed after looking at them. This problem has happened in the past, but was resolved, only now I am finding it happen again. I do not want to have files saved unless I want to save them, not Firefox deciding that any file I open should be saved. I have Windows 11 & Firefox Version 113.0.1. Is there a way to revert to an older version of Firefox?

Prior to Version 113.0.1 I had No problems with all my web sites. Now, I have major issues.

I know this accurate as I can log on to the sites via Safari and No problems and the sites work correctly.

I use Pinterest quite a bit and somehow a great deal of pins have disappeared.

This happened once before when I was using Chrome, and I was able to go digging into my cached files and find the cached versions of the thumbnails of my Pins, so I could somewhat recreate them based on that.

I'm not sure how to go about that with Firefox. Would any information (specifically images) be stored from a previous version of a webpage?

Thank you!

I have been using firefox for more than 4 years now. But from about a year, i m facing the issue with the Sudden High CPU usage in Windows task manager.

The task manager has 2 different firefox processes. One being actual instance i am running. and the 2nd being the automatically opened in background.

i have figured out whenever i have active internet connection and my system is on charging the 2nd task automatically starts in background and uses upto 80% of cpu usage. Ending the 2nd task form task manager doesn't affect anything. only the cpu usage drops. Also Closing my firefox instance does nothing to that 2nd task.

I have tried lot of solutions i found on community. Nothing seems to help. problem still persist. I even posted comments on ongoing threads. but no reply from anywhere.

this is the last time i m trying. if i get a solution its good. otherwise i am going to shift to edge. I have no other choice.

Screenshots from multiple dates are attached.

This again!

This was resolved about a year ago; now the problem is back, as of updating to Firefox 113.0.1 this evening.

Initially post-update the close tab button was in a weird, random place on the tab bar. I have adjusted the margins to put the button back where it's supposed to be!

I changed :

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 2px !important;
}

to:

.tabbrowser-tab .tab-close-button {
  opacity: 0;
  margin-left: -4.5px !important;
  margin-right: 35px !important;
}

to move the button back onto the left. That may seem like a drastic change but that's the lowest value I could find which produced the result I want.

However, it's not quite the result I want! As of updating to 113.0.1, the tab title itself now disappears altogether on hover.

I have tried to correct this in CSS using the .tab-text and .tab-label attributes, but without any luck so far.

Can anybody help me with this, before I'm forced to downgrade to Firefox 112?

Better yet... how about we just make this an option in Settings, as it should be?!

I don't know if breakage is the correct topic. I keep Ring.com open to the dashboard in a pinned tab. A few days ago, I had viewed and cleared videos as usual and later returned to view new activity. The site requires logging in every 30 days and so seeing that I needed to do so was not a surprise. What was a surprise was that the login buttons were grayed out. I closed the tab, cleared the Ring cookies and cache and tried again. No luck. I wondered if there was some other setting that I didn't know about and decided to open a private window and try it there. To my surprise, it works. I'm stumped. I'll attach the raw data from the private window as a .txt file. Darn. I can only attach an image. Well, I have it available and can copy and paste it into a subsequent post if you think it would help

I have a few websites, among them glovoapp.com and work Kibana, that don't open properly in my regular Firefox session any more even though I tried to remove cookies related to those websites and anything else I could think of. They work fine in private window but it means I have to authenticate each time. What steps do I need to perform to completely clean a website settings from Firefox memory?

In case of Glovo (and several other websites) in regular Firefox session there's an error: Content Security Policy: The page's settings blocked the loading of a resource at inline ("script-src"). Same doesn't happen in private window.

In case of Kibana (and several other websites) in regular session Firefox somehow remembers old authentication - it doesn't ask for new credentials and doesn't send Sec-Fetch-User header (which results in Kibana throwing HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed). In private window the header is sent correctly.

I'm using Tridactyl so I tried to use the :sanitise glovoapp.com command which, in theory, should remove everything that can be removed with API calls as described on https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/WebExtensions/API/browsingData/DataTypeSet - it's not enough.
