I know that cookies are stored in a SQLITE database. I use a Linux distro and as per the documentation I viewed the cookie file at location '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/cookies.sqlite' and I can view all the contents as expected.'

However, these two things are bugging me if someone can please help me:

(i) SQLITE isn't a server connected database (it just offers minimal functionality) and since cookies are something accessed by server side from http headers with every request how does that work out?

(ii) Session storage key value pairs are stored in '~/.mozilla/firefox/PROFILE_FOLDER/webappsstore.sqlite' however, when I create session storage key value pairs and without closing the tab if I try viewing the session key; I can't find the key value pairs. I tried with Local storage and it works however with session storage it does not show me the key value pair in database.

When entering credit card info in a web form, Firefox will pop up a dialog asking if I'd like to save the card info. If I click yes, the dialog closes but the info is not saved. If I go into settings where one can view the saved cards and enter the info to save a new one, I can enter one but again it does not actually save. There is no error, it just doesn't save. Tailing journalctl shows no errors, and launching Firefox from a console and watching the output doesn't show any error either.

It's been this way over several updates over the course of a few months (as long as I've been using Firefox on this computer).

I filled up a form with name and surname, no passwords. When coming back to the site days later, just pressing first letter shows my previously typed data. For example, the letter J will show John right away.

Where is this information stored? I looked in "Memory" devtab, it is not there so I presume this is not stored by the website in my PC. Also, I don't see this data in in History.

Where is it?

Hello, I'm behind a corporate proxy server and I had no issues with this until a couple of months ago. First I was using FoxyProxy, and one day I realized that Firefox wasn't syncing so I started troubleshooting (Troubleshoot mode) and found out that when a proxy addon (now I moved to SmartProxy and it's the same) is enabled Sync fails. I even tried setting up a new profile with a different, new, Firefox Sync account and the outcome is the same. Anyone else having this trouble? Is this a bug? Should I report it? Anyone wants to help me reproduce it? Thanks in advance!

PS: This happens on my Windows 10 machine too.

As the subject says, when attempting to upload images from my computer (Ubuntu 20.04 on Firefox 94), often but not always, the result will be a visual glitch similar to the image attached. The only time which I have ever used Zoom on Firefox, the same issue happened when I tried to use my webcam, except that the lines rapidly changed colours.

I apologize if this issue has been solved in another thread, but this is a bit hard to describe without the picture, so my attempts to search for said thread were unsuccessful.

The issue is not present when I upload the images in question via mobile. Turning off my extensions has no effect.

The image attached is taken directly from attempting to upload a profile picture to my Firefox account, but I have experienced this issue with websites like Twitter and Ebay for example. I have never had this issue with Imgur, for example, even though I am doing nothing different (uploading images). I do not know why this only occurs for a select few websites.

Any responses or help is appreciated!

Hello! I have a problem with Firefox. Whenever I have selected text and I press the control key, that text becomes unselected. Is like I lost focus of the window or the input text when I'm pressing the control key.

This is really annoying because it makes copy and paste really complicated. Most of the times I have to select the text and right click - "Copy" instead of a simple "Control + C". This only happens on Firefox, as on Chrome the control key works as expected.

I'm on Linux.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thank you so much!

(Firefox 94.0; Fedora 34; Gnome)

When I go to some video websites and click the play button, I see the little circular thing in the image are spinning, indicating that the video is loading. But it never stops and it never plays. Also, the pause button does not have any effect; the loading indicator keeps spinning. Example website: "https://proclassictv.com/" (both with "The Rifleman" and "My Favorite Martian" episodes. I've tried this on a few of the videos available there. Same result. I've tried this with add-ons enabled and with add-ons disabled (current session). I've seen this in a few other websites also. I don't know if the problem is my system, Firefox, or the host website.

I am able to view youtube videos with no problems.

How do I get the videos to play?

Thank-you.
