I don't want to always be asked where I want to save files. I'm okay for all future files to be saved in my Downloads folder. I go to settings and remove the Check mark for "Always ask where to save files". But this setting does not survive a Firefox restart/exit. Why not?

How can I get firefox to preserve my preferred setting?

1. When I set "NEVER REMEMBER HISTORY" Firefox create an initial INVALID INITIAL http request.


GET /lipsum.html undefined <--------------------- HERE Host: myhost.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/avif,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, br DNT: 1 Sec-GPC: 1 Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 Connection: keep-alive Sec-Fetch-Dest: document Sec-Fetch-Mode: navigate Sec-Fetch-Site: none Sec-Fetch-User: ?1 Pragma: no-cache Cache-Control: no-cache

3. This causes a NS_ERROR_NET_TIMEOUT_EXTERNAL

4. Firefox then immediately issues a 2nd HTTP Request, this time correctly.

GET /lipsum.html HTTP/1.1 <---------------------------- Host: myhost.com User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:120.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/120.0 Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/avif,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8 Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5 Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate DNT: 1 Sec-GPC: 1 Connection: keep-alive Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1 Pragma: no-cache Cache-Control: no-cache

I have a video of the behavior and a simple HTML file to test with. I can't upload either.

I recently switched over to Firefox as my main browser in place of Chrome. What really won me over was the Primary Password feature, so that my saved passwords will be safe. But I'm a little confused: When I open Firefox, the dialog box comes up asking me for my Primary Password. As soon as I type the first two characters of my password, the browser is totally unlocked. I can either type in the rest of my password at that point and press Enter, or I can just press the Cancel button. Either way it only needs the first two characters of my password to unlock Firefox. That doesn't seem very secure. Is there any way to set it to require my entire password?

Good morning!

Since v112.0.2 my Firefox logged itself out of Sync and will not allow me log back in. When I click the "Sync and Save Data" in the pulldown menu, the page spinner just spins and spins. The login page never loads.

Oddly, I couldn't even login to my Mozilla account here to post this. I had to use "Ungoogled" Chromium to load the page. I've never had any Sync issues with FF, that I can remember. This just "appeared" with v112.0.2 and continues with v113.0.

I did try to access the Sync login page while in Safe (Troubleshooting) Mode... no difference, though; same spinning spinner.

I'm running Slackware Linux on a desktop computer. No other changes have been made on this system other than upgrading from FF v112.0.1. to v112.0.2. This is when the Sync issue started.

Any ideas? Any assitance would be very much appreciated. I could just go to Chromium full-time, but I would not want to do that. I've been a Mozilla browser user for 23 years. The Chromium is only on my system as a backup browser, along with SeaMonkey. Yeah... I have a Seamonkey. :)

Anyway, thanks in advance for any help/ideas to allow me to troubleshoot/resolve this.

Regards,

~Eric

i cannot print any web page from Firefox. The print option only offers me the option to save as PDF. Firefox is not detecting either my Brother laser printer or my Epson inkjet printer. if i use the print using system dialogue option fire fox shows a printer screen which has a simple entry of line prntr. If that is selected nothing at all happens. Clearly Firefox cannot detect my printers. If I save the web pages to a PDF file then open that file I can then get the normal system printing options and print the page. But all that does is clutter up my file system with files I will only ever use once. This proves the problem is clearly in Firefox and in its inability to detect system printers. I have tried all the suggestions from the help screens to no avail. Is there any other means of sorting this print problem.

Hello,

after porting my SSD Arch installation from my old Laptop to a desktop PC, i have a really long startup time (about 30s-45s) for the first time after booting my PC. This problem doesn't occur with any other programs. The subsequent openings of firefox happen instant.

Have tried using "refresh" functionality to clean up firefox so my about:config is as clean as it gets, didn't help. Have tried starting it with "firefox --no-remote", didn't help. Have tried starting it with "firefox --safe-mode", didn't help. Have tried starting it with a completely fresh profile, didn't help. Tried purging it from the system and reinstalling it, didn't help. Same problem when I start it normally via dmenu/rofi.

I don't get any stdout log on any of these methods of starting.

I also don't know where to look for helpful log files.

Any help or hints on where to trace this fault are much appreciated.

Have a nice day :)

I have 2FA completely turned off and login to my Mozilla account works thru the browser window with password and with google single sign on, however when I try and log into my account via the integrated browser account manager thing it does a 2FA step. I can do this but why does it do this if it's TURNED OFF??? and how do we fix this behavior? Oh, and the autofill works on most sites but not on your signin page. Did you guys block password managers from filling in the login fields?

Hi all.

I have a phone, a tablet, a desktop pc and a server all with Firefox installed. I need to sign in to Firefox on another pc, but I can't remember my password. Not sure why as I'm fairly sure I know what it is and I only signed in on my phone 2 months ago. Although maybe that was a qr code?

First question: the 'password' field in the account manager is 18 asterisks long, does that mean my password is actually 18 characters? Or is this just a generic mask? I have seen it work both ways. A clue to the length might jog my memory.

Second question: assuming it's gone for good I can of course reset it. What's the least damaging way to do this? I can think of backing up my bookmarks and then reuploading them, anything else? Will the reset lose all my passwords for other sites such as forums, is there a way to keep these?

Thanks!

It does not appear in YouTube full screen but i have not tried any other websites to see if it's there. Restarting my system and Firefox did not resolve the issue. Is there any way to fix this, or do i have too wait for a bug fix/the problem to be identified?

Hello,

I am running Firefox v101.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux (Pop!_OS, installed as a flatpak). I am using the default system theme in dark mode, though switching to the Firefox dark theme or other themes does not change anything. When I allow the Menu Bar (File, Edit, View, etc.) to be present, the browser tabs on the next line are aligned correctly, going all of the way to the left. When I uncheck the Menu Bar, however, a gap appears to the left of the tabs. I have not seen this behavior on Firefox in other environments (Debian, RHEL, Windows), and I'm wondering if there's a way I can remove that gap. I have attached screenshots showing how the tabs are aligned with and without the Menu Bar.

Thanks so much!

I am working on a new computer with Kubuntu and have FF installed via .deb.

On my previous computer, I could drag files from the downloads dropdown (eg download a file and then drag it into gmail as an attachment).

Now this is not possible. Instead, I need to go to the downloads folder in order to drag and drop a file. An extra step and rather annoying.

The problem is persists in Safe Mode.

Is there any way to get the old functionality back?

Rendering is completely broken after the upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. See attached image. This particular render is of the advanced preferences page, or actually the prompt warning that it could break something is somewhere in there. The mountains are my desktop, it's all alpha channel in Firefox. Nothing else seems broken, and other apps and games, both using GPU acceleration and not, are working fine.

I have removed and reinstalled firefox (snap remove firefox then snap install firefox) but did not delete all of the history files in between. (I am posting this from a different browser, since Firefox is unusable.)
