Good morning, I am using Firefox since 14 years, and all the time it has been my favourite Internet Browser and I advised every friend of mine to choose this internet browser. But I am afraid it's gonna change soon. I lost my laptop, it was stolen. I store my history from a couple of years, bookmarks, saved passwords. I had a backup by MozBackup on May 2019. On December I copied a profile as it was written in your guides: (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles) I copied everything from: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ I hadn't investigate what is inside. And after i bought a new laptop I had many problems with Firefox, can someone explain me please: 1. I couldn't login to Sync, due i hadn't remembered my password - ok its my fault, but when i wanted to reset i would lose all my data?! Why is that? I can understand due to its encrypted but... Luckly after some combination i recovered my password. 2. So i copied my profile as it was written in your guide, and i hadn't investigate what is inside. Now when i tried to copy my whole profile its not working, why? Well, i checked and there were no file: places.sqlite . I have no clue why, so my backup from December is lost. 3. You informed people about Syncing, why there is nowhere information that you syncing history, yes, but only 2 months??!! You claim that we will have bookmarks, saved passwords, cache and history yes thats true, but history for only 8 weeks..... I understand that it has many bytes to store, but it should be somewhere information about it! If i would knew that i would be more prepared for lost, and did more often proper backup by MozBackup. I feel now very frustrated about this situation, and first time after 14 years I'm very, very disappointed with Firefox. Can someone explain me please, why is that? Thank you for reply! Kind regards

So I'm trying to make Firefox's push-notifications be displayed for a longer duration than the usual; I'm hoping to get them to stay visible for several minutes, instead of a few seconds. Perhaps the is a solution that doesn't require us to mess with the responsible API by ourselves? Another matter, also concerning those push-notifications: may it be possible to force them to always appear for a specific website, independently of the status of the Firefox-window? In our current case, they only seem to appear if it's minimized. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

URL to redirect is insecure, so get error instead of redirect to secure web site

When trying to access this URL you get an Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP https://financialservicesinc.ubs.com/staticfiles/pws/documents/ww-re-direct-31-Jan-2020… (funda kabanzi)

When trying to access this URL you get an Error code: SSL_ERROR_NO_CYPHER_OVERLAP https://financialservicesinc.ubs.com/staticfiles/pws/documents/ww-re-direct-31-Jan-2020.html

That above link is a redirect to the real site located at: https://www.ubs.com/us/en/wealth-management/washington-weekly/2020/washington-weekly-31-jan-2020.html

Unfortunately, the first link is trying to make a secure connection with

https://financialservicesinc.ubs.com

but that web site does not support a matching cypher suit (hence a secure connection cannot be made). This results in the error.

Check out the security analysis of their website: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=financialservicesinc.ubs.com

You can see they only support TLS 1.2 and a limited list of cypher suites that do not match those in Firefox.

Interestingly, https://financialservicesinc.ubs.com is supposed to redirect to https://www.ubs.com/us/en/wealth-management.html but that redirection is not occurring in Firefox. I think Firefox is trying to resolve the security before resolving the domain redirect. I am curious if it is a 302 redirect or some other redirect method.

If an insecure connection could be made to the initial URL the redirect would trigger and you would be redirected to the website with matching ciphers and a secure connection could be obtained. How can you allow an insecure connection just to check/trigger a redirect?

Changing settings does nothing, Bing works as in shows but isn't a good enough search engine to be useful. If Mozilla no longer wants Linux users they should be open about it instead of wasting time. There isn't even any help in the help section/results have nothing to do with the question.

Right click your UI and go to Customize... try to add spacing between some of the icons/ui elements, and you should see there is only flexible space, and it is huge. There used to be little "|" separators you could add, as well as " " small spaces. Now there is just this ungodly huge flexible space. I am remembering from really old versions of firefox, I don't see why they removed it.

I want to pad the left side of my interface a little bit. I use a vertically aligned taskbar on the left side, so moving my mouse near the edge to hit BACK the taskbar will pop up and cover everything.

Is there an addon to bring it back, or is modifying chrome.css the only option. Thanks.

Hello,

Recently I noticed a big difference in performance on Youtube if I set Hardware Acceleration to disabled. I'm having Intel IGP, and no external graphics. I was reading more about this setting after I feel like 'youtube is so slow, but what if I turn this off, will this make any difference?' and yes it did! So it was a good idea, and I would like to share this. On devices with integrated graphics only - this setting should be disabled by default for new firefox installations. I really noticed a significant difference on my notebook when turning this off, but on my game-desktop with GPU GeForce 1050ti i don't notice difference because the GPU is good enough.

Kind Regards, Lajos

When I create a new profile and paste my backed up profile files inside the new profile folder everything seems to work except my add-ons. My add-ons would sometimes be invisible in the toolbar and replaced with empty slots which give me an error saying "Access to file denied - May have been removed, moved, or file permissions may be preventing access" if I try clicking on them. Other times they would be completely gone, not in the toolbar or customization menu. In either case, when I go check what add-ons I have installed, it shows that they're all still there, I just can't seem to see or use them. I'd end up having to uninstall and then reinstall each add-on. (sorry I couldn't get a screenshot of the error, it disappears when I try)

Interestingly the add-ons remember their set place, some remember their previous settings, others don't. For example, NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere remember their settings, but uBlock Origin and Bitwarden don't.

This issue started recently where if I click websites like Twitter, Yahoo, Imgur or sometimes embedded Youtube videos, I'll get the tab crashed page on Firefox. My add-ons are updated, I tried safe mode, I did the Firefox refresh, I disabled hardware acceleration, compatibility mode is not checked, and also cleared cookies, but none of them worked. The websites work and don't crash when I use a different browser.

I'm not sure what info you need, but this is for an older computer with Windows 7, I'm using Firefox 68.4.2esr (says it's the latest version) and the crash reason is EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_WRITE

Thanks for any help!

Edit: The issue fixed itself when I restarted the computer.

Ever since the last update to 72.0, websites that change their content according to the browser's language act as if my language is Heberw although I've set all possible settings to English in about:preferences and about:config. Image attached.

I remember that right after the update, there was a message that never came back saying I can choose between Hebrew and English as the language that I'll present as my language to websites. I'm pretty sure I chose English but ever since, it seems the browser is doing the opposite. The most notable damage is that Google searches show up in English.

I've tested **Google searching in safe mode and it works fine**. I've also tested a clean and new profile and I couldn't get Google show up the content in English.

I know that for example Google, allows you to change the language you prefer to use their website. The problem is, that I don't store Google's cookies for the sake of privacy (I have an extension that automatically cleans cookies based on domain) and this setting is stored within a cookie.

In the meantime I've installed the Search extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/search-google-us/
