I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

I just updated last night to version 98.0 of Firefox, and have noticed that when I click on manage bookmarks that the boomarks now open at the bottom of the various bookmarks folders by default instead of opening at the top like they used to. What happened here? I am including a picture to show where the manage bookmarks section is going by default now instead of where it normally does. Can anyone help fix this?

Hi can somebody help me please? Sitting here on Christmas Eve at work trying to fix Firefox.

In a nutshell I have a really really annoying bug with Firefox which is going to cause me to pull all my hair out.

In the past the program used to check for updates and it used to work fine during this procedure.

Lately though I've been experiencing a really strange bug.

Whenever Firefox checks for updates the browser then cannot load a single webpage or anything while it is checking. Sometimes the checks can take around 3-5 minutes to complete.

Any videos or streams come to an eventual halt.

I have tried tweak a few settings in about:config such as app.update.interval

I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the browser - No change. This still happens usually about 5-8 times a day.

This computer is used for medical emergencies for our clients. We need a full functioning browser. I thought Firefox was that browser but I am beginning to think about installing something else now.

In these situations lives could be put at risk and I want to remedy this problem now before the new year. I imagine we will have a lot of patients coming in. I need to quickly submit forms at times and I really need a stable browser.

a) Can I turn off updates? I would prefer to check manually for updates once a week or so via Help -> About b) Can I reduce the frequency of the checks for updates? c) Is this going to be a normal feature for Firefox from now on?

This new 'update' has just caused me to lose all my tabs and bookmarks. The new version is c**p and it is awful. I went to the page to install the previous version I liked and worked perfectly and when I installed I now have none of my tabs and bookmarks. My pc is nearly unusable and I am now out of business until I can get them back if I can. It will be months to try to get back to where I was and will never get all of what I had. Is there any way to fix this? I need help immediately.

My Firefox browser seems to have reset itself to Windows 8 compatibility. I have Windows 10, 64-bit. Firefox will not open full screen, but opens a tiny, narrow window at the bottom of the screen which I have to use task manager to close. I remember one of the automatic updates coming through a few days ago.

Can I do anything other than uninstalling and a new install? I'd like to keep my favorites list, etc. I am at the extent of my computer skills with this.

Like I said in the title, Firefox keeps changing the file extension for 'odd' file type when downloading them. I say 'Odd' because I download this type of file almost every day. They're a .ts4script file type, which is a file type for modding The Sims 4. Up until today they were downloading just fine, but now firefox keeps changing them into .zip files.

While this slightly makes sense as a .ts4script IS a zipped up file that contains python files it's very annoying to have to manually change the file type after downloading more than a few at the same time...

Is there maybe a setting I may have accidentally changed or something?

My Firefox Browser has just updated itself automatically to 78.0.2 (I use it with MacOs 10.14.16). Since then, I have been unable to access Wikipedia. Whether I enter an url or I try a search through the search bar with the Wikipedia module the result is the same: nothing happens at all. If the url bar is empty it remains empty, if there was another url before it comes back instead of the wikipedia url I typed. The same thing is occurring on both my MacBook Air and my iMac which run under a previous version of MacOs.

Hello there to anyone who can help me with this problem that I'm having right now. Yesterday while watching and going through the videos on youtube, while watching a video, it suddenly started to lag and not move as smoothly much as before when I have on a higher quality like in 1080p 60fps or 720p60fps.

This has happen to me a couple times before when I couldn't find a way to fix it like when my my laptop was acting stupid and was resetting itself and showing a blue screen when it happen and had someone help me take it to the store and have it fixed and the reset my laptop or something and had to go redownload Firefox and I think the problem stopped working.


Yesterday and today I tried searching and looking up how to fix this and find answers that tell me to go to the about:config and change somethings to false or true whatever and it still has this problem. I hope changing it to whatever doesn't mess it up anything even more.

I thought I had to go update Windows or something since recently a couple of times the youtube videos get stuttery and not move as smoothly at times. I can't remember much this one but I either just close Firefox to hopefully that it goes back to normal or I have to update Windows to restart my laptop and it works and it goes back to normal.

But this time when I did all that and I try to update Windows from my laptop it was doing what it does updating installing or downloading yesterday. The problem is still there and the videos on youtube are still stuttering. And I try to see if there were more things to update there was nothing there and says its up to date.

I linked a video that has a 60fps option on a another browser Microsoft Edge to see if it works from there and video when putting it on 60fps works fine there. So this must be a Firefox problem or something.

So if anyone can help me with this problem. Please tell if there's anything else I can do to get these videos on youtube to work on Firefox in 60fps and hopefully can try to easily fix this and hope its nothing complicated to do. Or if there is a bug or something that's making these videos stuttering and everything please try to fix this problem that's going with me right now. Cause i don't want to have to deal with problem I had before again forever and/or if its permanent.

Hopefully maybe the next update for Firefox might fix this problem I have from these youtube videos, but I don't know. Whenever an update for Firefox happens sometimes, the videos on youtube start to stutter and not move as smoothly with putting it on 60fps and have this problem again.

Thank you if anyone has the time to look at this and hopefully someone can get me the answer to finally fix these videos that are freezing stuttering and stuff there.

Update 89.0 changed the browser theme to something I don't like, too pale and pastel. Options to change back to what I had aren't available. The options presented are now uglier than this sick looking theme.

How do I undo 89.0 update? Pretty much looks like (from release notes on another post) 89.0 has nothing at all to do with security and it's just someone at Firefox wanting to change things just for the sake of changing things.

I hope Firefox isn't going to start doing silly things like moving the first floor to the second floor and the second floor to the first floor just because some administrator feels like it.

I've been using Firefox since Netscape ended and i always enjoyed it. Unfortunately the Firefox 72 is utterly hideous. It is the worst and most unstable browser i ever tested -- it's extremely slow, it doesn't even work with hardware acceleration, it's not compatible with most sites i access and it crashes a lot. Anyway I already reinstalled the version 71, which continues to work flawless and I don't plan to ever use auto updates again. The problem is that every single day Firefox tries to update to the horrible 72 version, and every day I have reject it manually.

I'm looking for a way to permanently block future Firefox updates, without asking me for it again. Any ideas?
