After my Browser automatically updated to 88.0.1 (i unfortunately ignored the popup to update Firefox for a while) i started it and my Login data was gone. Extensions, Bookmarks, anything other than Lockwise Data was still there.

I made an account (this one) as i previously did not have one in hopes of somehow fixing that; then after searching for solutions i checked for an "old data" file (does not exist) and checked about:profiles (i have a second profile named "default" that has absolutely zero saved data on anything, i dont know where it came from or wheter it was ever used). The profile that i use ("default-release") was active and that was that.

Then i checked Appdata/Roaming/.../theprofile (from the profile page) and was relieved to find that both "logins.jason" and "logins-backup.json" contained my Login data: The Username and Password (encrypted), formSubmitURL, giud, enctype, etc. I made a completly seperate backup in case something i do ends up deleting those. Since the passwords are encrypted i cannot add them one by one to Lockwise.

I dont know why they dont appear when i check my Login data or try to use the data on any Website. Can i manually "import" the file into Firefox so that it automatically decyrpts the passwords?

Made several posts about floating videos and never one answer over the course of two years that I can recall. One of the biggest user problems with FF and we get -- nothing. If the developers are incapable of solving this go ahead and tell us ! We can look for other browser options. I have researched everything to do with the matter and the topic just round and round and round in circles. Dozens claim to have the answer but they are all full of hooey. Simple question -- time to start looking for options other than FF ?

I am happily running Mac OS 10.13.6 (High Sierra) on my MacBook Pro (mid 2012). This OS allows me to use my many 32 and 64 bit apps and have excellent control of my laptop. My bank is saying that my browser (Firefox 88.0.1) needs to be updated. When I check system requirements at mozilla, any newer Firefox claims to need an intel x86 processor INCLUDING the version of Firefox I am now using. My Mac has an intel Core i7 processor. When I click on about Firefox, I'm offered to update to 109.0.1. Will this update actually work for me without losing any functions I already have? Is there a better choice for my Mac and Firefox?

I'm sure I'm not alone in having an old email address stripped off the server when changing broadband supplier. Unfortunately, most services use email as user ID, hence I have an old F'fox a/c - my first - for which I have long since forgotten the password, which uses just such an email. As a consequence, I can neither change the email nor delete the a/c - F'fox seems to insistst on a user knowing a/c password in order to change email (understandable), or delete the a/c (slightly less understandable). So it 'helpfully' tries to send a password re-set link to ........the a/c email, which of course no longer exists & thus I cannot access. May be just my (mis)perception, but because this was my first a/c, F'fox seems to default to the now inaccessible a/c - one reason why I wish to delete it. Is there another method whereby I can delete this old a/c, or is it doomed to wander the ether for eternity?

'Why am I still seeing blinking ads on firefox pages? I thought you totally solved this problem ? I have been using firefox ad blockers for months with great success; but suddenly they stopped functioning efficiently. Since firefox took them OUT OF MY UPPER TOOLBAR SEVERAL WEEKS AGO . 'Thus I have no idea if they are working or not.' There was no announcement of changers or any update that I know of.

Otherwise with no help from firefox, the last resort will be switching to an independent vpn to resolve firefox ad issues... For years I had no issues with firefox or even ad blocking problems; but now ads and firefox's constant need to take TOTAL control of everything has become a major issue.

If all fails, the last hope will be turning to Express VPN...Thanx for any help you can give...rjk

This is so strange as to be almost unbelieveable. It began as a profile issue. Everything is okay now, but there was much weirdness. I think this is a worthwhile read and I'm eager to hear any ideas regarding what happened.

The bottom line: If Firefox changed the name of a mount point, that was/is a bad idea -- developers take note.

I run Firefox (latest) in a Linux Mint Guest inside a VirtualBox virtual machine with a Windows Host. The Firefox application is installed as usual, but the profile is here: 'FireFox Profile.vhd' -- a virtual USB that, on VM boot, VBox mounts here: '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/'.

The profile is: '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/mwad0hks.default/'.

Events: 1 - In a proven Linux Mint VM, today I booted the VM as usual but Firefox apparently lost my bookmarks & history. Why? I'll probably never know. 2 - I created a new profile hoping that in the process, I'd be given the option to use an existing profile -- no dice, FF created a new, blank profile. 3 - I discovered that I now had these: 3.1 - '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/', and 3.2 - '/media/mark/FireFox Profile1/'. 4 - I closed FF, launched Nemo, and tried to delete 'FireFox Profile1' but was refused. 5 - After much fiddling of the contents of 'FireFox Profile.vhd' mounted in Windows (to make it accessable outside the VM) I backed up 'FireFox Profile.vhd' -- good thing I did that. 6 - I realized that the mount point must have been renamed from '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/' to '/media/mark/FireFox Profile1/'. 7 - Sure enough, I launched the VM and deleted '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/' -- remember that '/media/mark/FireFox Profile1/' could not be deleted. 8 - So I concluded that "something" must have renamed the Linux VM mount point from '/media/mark/FireFox Profile/' to '/media/mark/FireFox Profile1/'.

I conclude that FF must have done the renaming in step 2.

I launched the Linux VM aiming to search how to rename the mount point back to its original name and low and behold, FF now found the correct profile and everything was happiness again. End of story. Or is it?

I'm stuck at ver 88. Starting with 89 I seem to be limited to around 150 total tabs across all open windows (even if only one is open). Total lockup of the desktop (KDE in linux) It hadn't been a problem, I just shut off auto update.

Now websites are whining about me running an older browser and some are even refusing to let me in. So I thought ok, I'll run multiple instances and keep the total number of tabs low. 5 instances work fine, the 6th starts to act a bit flaky, 7+ is a total lockup of the desktop (KDE in linux).

Even if I can manage to kill the last instance, its corpse remains on screen.

So I'm back to ver 88 with no solution. Is there a way around these limits? When I'm doing development I often have more than 600 tabs open. Eventually some will get closed, but I can't very well get much done if the browser is just going to lock everything up.

Hello FF community. I come here for a question, maybe a confirmation (I'm gonna try to be as short as possible ).

I'm using for years infamous Aris-t2 customCSS. I'm about to "jump" from FF v88 on my desktop to V115.0.3esr. I tested everything on my laptop, and set everything on the customCSS so it looks like my actual V88. It's almost identical, but one thing is bugging me: the scrollbar.

Scrollbar on FF115 isn't the same anymore than in V88 as you can see on the screenshot I posted (test scrbr for V115, scrbr2 for V88). The clean one with "3lines grab button" I actually use is less "eye catchy" than the new one. I've made some researches, and apparently, starting FF V97 about 2 years ago, scrollbar has been change to use W10 "flat like" one, and at FF106+, every older code was apparently removed. I tried to changed a few things in about:config, like "widget.non-native-theme.enabled" or multiple commands about scrollbar, nothing changed.

So I just wanted to know if someone could confirm me that the old scroll bar I use is now impossible to get back, or if there's a command I miss that could do the thing.

Thanks, have a nice day ^^

I got a 5 billionth searcher scam site redirect... for some reason no script does not catch this. I have attached a picture of my addons, which are all recommended, and a picture of the scam page.

I have had this happen in the past and I have no idea why.

I am most worried about my passwords being stolen.

I am using linux mint 18.3 and have no idea how to check for malware.

Also, I should mention that when I use my landline to make phone calls (keep in mind that I am using DSL), I sometimes will get this odd redirect of my actual phone calls that will keep asking me about special offers over and over again. I called the phone company about it and they did nothing, after repeated calls..... but anyway, I wonder if that may be linked to the problem.

What should I do?
