After setting Firefox up again by downloading it and signing in, adding all my files back from Drop Box, and making Firefox my default browser, every time I restart my computer I lose my files, and the default browser is back to Microsoft Edge. Is this a virus, or something I'm not doing correctly.

BTW, last night at midnight, my computer went through a Windows update automatically and I lost all my settings again.

I have a Dell PC Inspiron 3670

Not sure what the right place for this is; I wasn't able to find a Firefox support forum specifically for web developers. If anybody knows of a more appropriate forum, please let me know.

I'm trying to intercept the opening of a popup window from JavaScript, but I can't find any way to trigger the debugger on this condition, and I don't want to set the breakpoint manually because the source I'm working with is obfuscated and it would take a lot of work to track it down manually. I currently have Firefox 68 ESR, but I could upgrade if needed. Does any version of Firefox have a way to set a breakpoint on new tabs/windows opened from JavaScript, or is there a way to break on the `window.open` function which I suppose is what is being used?

I am getting notices to upgrade to the latest Firefox, which Firefox on my computer says I already have. When I click next, a box asks permission to use acquireappstreams.best--which I cannot find on Google or Firefox. What is acquireappstreams.best, and is it a phishing scheme?

I have an explicit search box separate from the URL bar. I want firefox to never ever pass any data from the URL bar to any search engine - DNS query only.

First, the URL bar has grey background text that says "Search with Google or enter address" - I don't want to search anything. Second, when I type an address, below the URL bar a blue bar with a globe appears that says "visit" - and takes up space - previous versions of firefox did not do this - how do I get rid of this?

I have the following set:

browser.fixup.alternate.enabled = false keyword.enable = false browser.urlbar.autofill = false browser.urlbar.suggest.bookmark = false browser.urlbar.suggest.history = false browser.urblar.suggest.openpage = false browser.urlbar.suggest.searches = false

So why does it still do this?

Related - I actually don't want the browser to search on my behalf ever - if I want to search I'll go to google or bing or wherever and enter the data that way - is there a 'null' search engine entry that be substituted? (Yes I understand that the URL has to be looked up in DNS, that's not what I mean.)

I set the "Master Password" in Windows 10. When I initiate Firefox, sometimes the pop-up window asking for the master password does not appear. When I go to a site which uses user/password that I stored, I have to go settings, view the password and return to the tab where I need it. At that time my user password appears. After a while, the pop up window appears asking me for the master password. Does anyone has this problem? Is this a bug? in Mac OS I never had this problem.

Thank you for any help in solving this.

So let's say that I have a bookmark in my Firefox bookmarks sidebar with this as the 'Location': file:///E:/Name%20Of%20File.txt

If I were to click that bookmark, the contents of that text file will appear in the browser which allows me to read the contents of the file.

I want to be able to left-click that bookmark from the Firefox bookmarks sidebar or right-click it and select from a context menu and have that .txt file launch in a separate Notepad window, as in launching Notepad as an external application separate from Firefox.

Is that possible with some tweaking and hacking or whatever?

Hello, probably something stupid but suddenly I cannot get to https://chat.mozilla.org/ - has it moved or something? I just get a blank page. This is using Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) under Windows 10 (Home). I am pretty sure that SSO (via my github account) normally works. Thanks Spike

I've changed my personal device and currently I only have Firefox installed for the device I am using. When logging in, I've restarted the account password, expecting that sync data from previous devices will be there even after password reset.

Now I've lost all my data, so is it possible to recover Firefox sync data in this scenario?

Starting Firefox under a Wayland compositor (sway, in my case) with MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 and copying some multi-line text results in newlines of the form \r\n, i.e. Windows-style, instead of the expected \n. Starting Firefox with the X11 backed, i.e. without MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1, doesn't exhibit the issue.

This is most certainly a bug since Wayland is a Unix-like protocol, and as such newlines should be of the form \n. However I am finding the bug tracker a little daunting and I am not sure how to check whether it is already known or not.

jscher2000 Jul 28, 2020, 5:12:26 AM

By the way, I think there is some other difference between these two 64-bit Firefoxes. Maybe they are different "languages" or "locales"? At the bottom of the Troubleshooting Information page, there is a section on that. The one you don't want is, I think the U.S. English build. Is the other one a different language/locale?

I did the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and renaming the Mozilla Firefox Folder. All that worked fine. The taskbar icon works.

But, I went out of order. I did the above before I saw your "by the way" message. I am again attaching jpegs from both troubleshooting pages on the Internationalization & Localization section If this is what you are referring to they are both the same.

So, if this is alright I will go back and redo the first part of making IE 11 the default browser and so on. Then delete C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and the desktop icon. Anything else that needs deleting?

Just for grins I am also attaching a jpeg of the Mozilla Firefox program from the Control Panel - Programs_Features page.

Think that's it.

Thanks again and again for all your help, Irv
