Hi,

I have been trying to use the extension "Sidebery" to replace "Tree Style Tab"

If my tabs are nested, bookmarking the tab tree will give me nested folder structure in firefox's bookmark.

If I right click on the top level folder in the bookmark, select "open all in tabs", firefox will only open those bookmarks in the 1st level folder, but won't open those bookmarks in the nested folders.

I wonder is there a way to do it? That is, open all bookmarks in a folder with those in the nested folder, all at once?

Best, Jake

I am disabled and have been using Dragon for writing and reading for more than 20 years. With the new update I cannot install the Dragon extension into Firefox and the longer. This means I will be no longer able to use Firefox as my web browser. This means I will be going to another editor! This is a shame because I've used Firefox even before it was Firefox! (Netscape)

Prior to getting some desktop PC upgrades that required a new install of Windows 11 and a new install of Firefox, I backed up my entire PC (yea!).

Now that I have re-installed Firefox, I see that I have none of my saved bookmarks and so I want to restore the Firefox profile - all of it or at least the bookmarks.

I have tried following the Firefox instructions for this, but am apparently not doing it right.

I can't seem to locate the bookmarks file, for starters, in my backed up files. I find the profile but I don't find anything like places.sqlite.

Can someone help me so that I am locating the right (and complete) files, copying them correctly, and then switching to the new/old profile correctly?

Thanks in advance.

Hello!

So recently I made a purchase via a website with my credit card. Was a one time purchase and I want the credit card data to be deleted, but it keeps auto filling the form even after I deleted all cookies, browser history, cache and everything else. I searched forums that there is auto-fill credit card & address options but only in US and Canada and I am in Europe.

How do I delete this data stored in Firefox since it keeps auto-filling it even after I contacted the billing support to delete my information.

Thanks!

I now have 115.0.3 and this problem still exists. It was reported right after 115.0.1 was released. When watching FreeVee on a Windows 10 desktop it stops a short while after an ad plays. It looks like it loses the ability to stream the main movie while streaming the ad. After the ad it plays about 20 seconds of the movie, probably what was in the buffer before the ad started, and then it freezes. I get the circle wait icon, like what typically happens when the Wifi goes down. After a while a message appears saying the Internet is not working. See attached image. Then I get the message (see other attached file) saying Video Unavailable. We're experiencing a problem playing this video. For assistance, please go to www.amazon.com/videohelp. Close Player.

Hi all,

I’m trying to make aware people of the recent Google movements to close gate the internet to their services and I suggest to folks to move to Firefox.

One of my colleagues encounters a problem clearly visible on the image attached (it shows correctly on my mac).

It's not as bad on my mac, where I only have issues every now and then - I received an email this morning on my work email, and all the apostrophes were replaced with Registered symbol (R in a circle).

I noticed that not allowing websites to use their own fonts fixes the issue (unticking "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above") but I would like to be able to view sites the way the developers intented rather than forcing my browsers default fonts.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

I had something like 7 windows open 10 minutes ago (yes I am a tab hoarder). I was trying to run a game that used a lot of RAM, so I decided that I would close ALL of my firefox tabs in hope that the game would run smoother with the 5gb that Firefox was using. I didn't think anything of losing the tabs because I had accidentally closed windows in the past using the big red 'x', and an easy ctrl + shift + t always restored the entire window no problem. When I tried to open firefox again within the next 5 minutes, only 3 of the windows restored themselves, I assume using the general > startup > open previous windows and tabs setting. Using Ctrl + Shift + T did nothing to restore them. Please help, as the windows that did reopen were the ones that I cared the least about.

I want to disable overscroll. For those who don't know: it's the bouncy animation when you use scroll using a two-finger gesture past the beginning or end of a scrollable region.

The bouncing is an animation, and with animations disabled on my system, having this animation is an accessibility issue.

I guess I could split this question in two:

1. Can Mozilla please change Firefox so that it doesn't do this animation when animations are supposed to be disabled? 2. How can I disable this overscroll behaviour manually, separately from other animations?

Bug 1362767 is still a problem, even with fission enabled which is apparently the default now. This is a huge problem when viewing videos on youtube and other similar video server platforms. The memory usage by Firefox just accumulates and does not release even after several days. Eventually, Firefox needs to be restarted to release the mis-allocated memory back to the OS. (Win10, FF 115.03 64-bit, Intel I5, 32 GB RAM) A restart can cut total system memory as reported by Process Explorer in *half* or more (!!) depending on how many videos I have viewed since last browser restart using Process Explorer 'Kill Process Tree' function followed immediately by FF restart. It is no longer possible to use an older PC with 8 GB of memory with Firefox to view videos. It takes forever to load, then becomes so laggy that it is no longer functional and is even difficult to kill with Process Explorer because the Windows Explorer user interface gets forced to swap out. (This latter should never happen regardless of memory allocation and is the fault of Microsoft.) I am now using another PC with 32GB RAM and Firefox often pushes the physical memory allocation to well above 16 GB after viewing just a few hours of videos, and does not recover even after being idle and minimized overnight. I have 10 extensions installed. Four of these are video related: Enhancer for Youtube, Video Ads Blocker for Youtube, Video DownloadHelper, and Video Speed Controller. I have not found any improvement in memory allocation performance by selectively disabling extensions. Other people have been posting complaints about this problem for at least 6 years. It makes Firefox practically useless for systems of 16 GB or less. You need to fix this. It appears to be *your* problem; Don't try to deny it, please just make it better. I continue to use FF because of the very useful extensions and greater privacy features than what is available for Chrome.

I am a backend developer (API maintainer) and I use firefox as my primarily browser at work. A feature that I would find very useful would be that firefox prettifies the "Form Data" under the "Request" tab when a request is selected under the "Network" tab in the developer tools, and with prettify I mean to display in multiple lines and highlighted properly (for a comparison example you can take the "Postman" application feature under the "raw" tab).

As of now it only displays the form data in a single horizontally scrollable line and it also has a "Raw" toggle.

Thank you and keep up the good work.

Hi.

I just checked to see if there were an update to Firefox, for my secondary laptop. But for some reason it wants to update from "Version 115.0.3 (64-bit)" to "115.1esr".

I have never used ESR in my life, so why does it want to update to ESR?

Is this expected, or is there a problem with this? It is intentional that I use my Windows 7 64-bit laptop.

I've been attempting to use FIDO2 w/ PIN support to log into Okta. This occurs with a pre-registered security key (Yubikey 5C NFC on most recent firmware) that has a PIN already configured. This key works on all other browsers and devices without trouble. Firefox is unresponsive to Yubikey interaction after the notice "Touch your security key to continue with <company>.okta.com" and will eventually time out if I do not cancel.

On the other hand, I can register a new security key on Okta through Firefox on this device. When I go through the registration workflow, Firefox is responsive to all interactions, allowing me to enter my PIN and complete registration.

I have been able to replicate this issue on other computers and with a different user / security key.
