Hi. Today I reinstalled the system on my computer. I redownloaded Mozilla and wanted to log in to restore my bookmarks. I forgot my password. I used the button that I forgot my password. I used my email and activation link for a new password. After logging back into Mozilla, my bookmarks are gone. Nothing like creating a new account. It is very important for me to recover my data.

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?

If I click on any link to Facebook, Facebook then takes over that tab so I cannot return to where ever I was before i clicked on the Facebook link. For example, I have a tab for DuckDuckGo. If I do a search and a link to Facebook appears, and I click on it, I go to the whatever the link is pointed to - but the BACK Button will NOT take me back to DuckDuckGo. The history for that Tab only shows the Facebook page. How can I correct this?

Hello,

I have more than 30 extensions, but I cannot add an extension shortcut into my toolbar and no extension appears in the “Customize Firefox” view. I tried “Restore defaults” without any effects...

There is a way to fix this issue or run Firefox in verbose mode to more information why my extensions don't appear here? (Other than restart from a new fresh profile if it's possible…). I confirm that all the extensions are functional and activated. Thanks,

I had a major PC crash that forced me into fresh installing windows to even be able to use my system. I thought i knew my password for firefox, but i could not for the life of me remember, it has been like 5 years. It said i would lose "some" bits of my history changing my pasword, bookmarks etc. But in reality it is literally everything. Not one bookmark, piece of history, or add on was remembered.

Is there anything you guys can do? I've lost extremely important bookmarks.

I have Windows 11, ver 22H2, on laptop. I use Nord VPN and Webroot antivirus which I have been using several years. This event just started occurring a week ago, and I can't find any Google references to it. As soon as I open Firefox a pop-up appears that says: "Quit your browser app. For Threat Protection to start working with your browser, you need to quit it first. Quit Firefox and click Continue." Then there are two clickable choices, Continue and Cancel. I always click Cancel because I don't know what this Threat Protection is. Then the pop-up keeps reappearing. About every five minutes it pops up and two or three times in a row after I click Cancel. It does this as long as Firefox is open. I have tried disabling Nord VPN and it made no difference. I have run complete scans with Webroot and it found nothing. I have tried uninstalling Webroot antivirus & rebooting and it made no difference, the pop-up still appears. I have tried downloading Malwarebytes and running a complete scan while Webroot was uninstalled, and it found nothing. I am out of ideas. I fear it is malware, but Nord VPN did not stop it, and both Webroot antivirus and Malwarebytes scans find nothing. I would appreciate any help.

Hello,

Yes, indeed, another occurrence of this everlasting request.

I don't want to see the word 'userchrome.css' or 'addon' at all in any of the answers that might be provided.

The question is: when will it be finally possible to have an option in the settings so the user can choose to have the tabs bar BELOW the bookmarks bar. After so many years and so many requests from so many people, how is it possible we have never been heard ?

How to officially raise a complaint / request to the teams taking this kind of decisions ?

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

HOWEVER, it's iike the browser remembers the url that was attempted to be the home page, and the same ridiculous "UpdateBRowser.rar" keeps happening when that url is entered to go to!
