I've been familiar with how FF works on Win7 for years. I know how and where its profiles and configs are stored and have reinstalled FF and recovered settings from the previous profiles.

I'm new to Windows10 64, don't really like it but it's embedded in an Intel nuc box. I have trusted file cleaner apps I use to clean unwanted temp files (except important FF profiles which are whitelisted from cleaning). On Win 7 I know roughly what the cleaner will find and remove.

I cleaned Win10 64 with the latest FF update installed (I don't think it's the update) and found over 1000 temporary files. The file path is Users\username\Appdata\local\Mozilla Firefox\Profiles\profile number\ default-release\cache2\entries. They are all small files and not the main default or custom profile I'm used to seeing. But they keep growing in number!

I know Win10 has account and file security protection which gets in the way and wthout changing ownership of this temp folder and sub folders, there is no admin user access.

Can anybody help me understand what I'm seeing. Are these FF profiles in cache2 temporary and not being deleted on exit due to Win10 file protection, or some other reason?

Thanks

When trying to access the supermarket web site https://groceries.asda.com the site keeps continually refreshing the home page ad-infinitum. When I tried this site a couple of months ago it was OK.

Is this a problem with the asda site - or an issue with Firefox? I'm using the latest version of Firefox 84.0.2 64bit.

Thanks.

Hi

to ALL Firefox admins and programmers.....

I think Im speaking for most people when I say this......

PUT THE DAMN TABS !!!!!BELOW!!!! the address bar already!!

People have been begging you to do this for ******* years!!!

Stop being such a**holes and make it like this BY DEFAULT FOREVER! And add a simple option in the setting that always allows the user to put the tabs above or below....but I know most people want this always BELOW!!!

Fix this issue PLEASE it pisses soooo many people off having the tabs above the address bar. ...Also when I double click on the empty space beside the tabs it just shrink the open window.....change this so double clicking on the empty area OPENS A NEW TAB...

Signed a VERY pissed off user!

All of a sudden pressing Ctrl-Shift-B no longer opens my Bookmarks window (Library), but instead closes my bookmarks toolbar!

Is there a way to revert this shortcut back to what it's been for the longest time?

I know the "new" combination is Ctrl-Shift-O but I've used the old one so often (maybe 50 times a day), that this change is nerve-racking.

Thanks.

Can someone please tell me why Firefox has remove Page Info on the right click?

Sense Firefox doesn't have a setting to set all cookies to "Allow for Session", I have been doing it by my self on every page I see. I right click, select Page info, go to permissions then change "Set Cookie" from default, which is "Allow" to "Allow for Session".

I read their update page before I updated, and no where on the page do they mention removing page info and for what reason.

Does anybody have an idea why?

Recently, I noticed Firefox has a new printer dialogue box. When that dialogue box starting showing up, all of my two-sided print jobs are BACKWARDS. The back page is flipped 180 degrees from the front page. WRONG!

As a sanity check, I double-checked with Chrome and Opera. No problem. Double-sided print jobs print as usual (i.e., when you flip the page over in the horizontal direction, the print orientation remains correct).

HP1320 laser printer. Win 7 / 64 bit. HP printer driver.

Somehow, the new Firefox Browser printer dialogue overlay is overriding the HP printer driver. Please fix!

Default highlighted text is white on a blue background, but dark themes on Youtube, Twitter, etc seem to be inverting that to blue text on a white background in Firefox.

I'm not sure if I missed a setting somewhere, I've tried manually setting background and foreground colors for selected text, but it's still being inverted.

Several days ago I've noticed that YouTube navigation menu on the left started to disappear. See pic-1. It may apper after several tries to open it in other tabs, but all in all mostly not visible. The second and the biggest problem - I can't log out from YouTube. See Pic-2.

I fully deleted Firefox, created new clean profile without any add-on etc, and tried to log in to YouTube - it didn't help. So I think it's not needed to mention all other basic things like cookie deleting etc were done. Problem is always here.

I received a Firefox update message (refresh) last night. Without hesitation, I clicked. I was updated to Firefox 83.0 (32 bit). (FYI-I'm still using Windows 7.) Immediately after, I realized all of my logins and passwords were gone. A "Please enter you primary password to view logins and passwords" banner is at the top of the page. When you hit the login button, the banner disappears. (I'm already logged in.) I'm left with a "no synced logins found" message. I'm always signed into Firefox when I use a browser and save login information. Not to mention, the were there moments before I hit refresh.

Of course, I don't have passwords stored anywhere else and need to access a site sooner rather than later. (whomp, whomp) I've seen "logins.json" and "logins-backup.json" files mentioned in other posts. Is it safe to assume these magic files hold login/password information? If so, where do I upload?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Firefox just up-dated itself to latest version after 88.01. And now, while the google search box appears in the centre of my homepage, like it has always done, as soon as I start typing into it, the search defaults to that horrible Chrome-like search bar at the top of the screen. How do Istop this? Or can I revert to my much loved earlier?

After the update to 89.0 the Shortcuts have taken an 'visual upgrade' that makes all the images chosen for them half as small as they need to be because they need to have a 'cute little grey border' almost as big as the image between it and the corners of the square.

I have twenty four shortcuts, that I differentiate at a glance through the images without having to stop to read the text on each one and this stupid change is really roasting my mellows, I have taken a look and haven't found any option to revert it to the previous look, anyone knows any way to do it or do I have to install the previous firefox update and stop updating and give up security updates to save myself from this stupid change?

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!
