I tried to install lockwise on my mobile, but unfortunately I forgot my password to my account, which contain all the information. Luckily I have access to the associated email also the account is logged in on my laptop. But when resetting the password, I got a warning that I might lose some of my saved password and bookmarks, which I really don't want. Is there still anyway for me save my account without loosing any of my contents ?

I am unable to log in to ANY page requiring my password when using Firefox. Chrome works fine for me. I don't want to reset passwords as I just went thru and did those as a regular update. What has happened to Firefox that it won't let me use any of my sites I need to log in to?

Hi all, I believe I remember that this function once was implemented in firefox and I used it regularly. But now I can't find it anymore:

The search results of an internet search (let's say google search results) show up in firefox one after the other. When I move my hand to the mouse and Strg + click I can open selected search results in new tabs. From the keyboard I can only use Tab to navigate from element to element - but not from search result to search result as I want.

Is there a possibility to move quickly from search result to search result? To skip all the not interesting elements? To "tab" through all these links, the maps, the ads takes ages...

Would be great if someone knew the old function in firefox at least.

After needing to do heavy maintenance due to a malware/malvertising issue that cropped up, I needed to restart and refresh Firefox a couple of times. While all the tabs are still present, they are now "discarded". I am fully unable to restore them, currently. Googling has not given me any real insight as to what is going on.

I did have Tab Suspender extension/app in use, so perhaps I should have disabled that and refreshed all the tabs. Impossible to say now, and hindsight is not exactly helping me restore any of this.

I have a lot of tabs, and I have managed to copy the titles of each tab, so I should theoretically be able to find each one again. However, if there is an easier method to restore all my tabs, I'd prefer that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

Hello everyone, I hope this finds you healthy and safe! Thank you in advance for your help, it's much appreciated. I'm configuring a new computer that will replace my current one and while installing Firefox and turning on sync on the new computer I realized I forgot my Firefox account password and have been trying to reset it but I run into a funny issue. I go to the "forgot password" link and add my email address to get the "password reset" email which I do get. When I click on the link in the email, it takes me to the page where I can then enter my new password and then click on the "reset Password" button. I then enter my new password but when I click on the "Reset Password" button I get the error "Unable to deliver email". This is where I'm stuck. I cannot reset the password because it won't go passed the error. I've attached an image of what I get. Thanks again for your help, it's appreciated.

I just lost a website I wanted to view because Firefox did a background update and I cannot find an option where Firefox downloads the update, but gives me the choice when to install it. (I don't have the link and get buried by ads when i try to google the website.) EVERY TIME AN UPDATE HAPPENS, IT ALWAYS STRIKES AT THE WORST POSSIBLE MOMENT! (Like when I'm working from home!)

THIS IS MY and I repeat MY computer. I CHOOSE WHERE AND WHEN THINGS HAPPEN. I need to find a way to FORCE FIREFOX TO WAIT UNTIL I AM READY FOR DOING THE UPDATE!!! Automatic installing of updates IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Downloading the update is fine, but I NEED THE ABILITY TO CHOOSE WHEN IT INSTALLS THE UPDATE!!!

Mozilla, you have NO RIGHTS IN MY COMPUTER, UNLESS I GIVE THEM TO YOU. I've been using Firefox for over a decade (and Thunderbird). I really don't want to change to something new - and forget ever going back to Windows (I DESPISE MICROSOFT!). Don't go the way of Microsoft - remember, IT'S OUR COMPUTER! We need the ability to install ON OUR SCHEDULE AND DON'T TRY TO FORCE US INTO A FALSE STEREOTYPE!

System - adequate hardware running Ubuntu 18.04LTS. Firefox 75.0 64 bit.

I am writing a C program, which needs to start several firefox windows. The problem is: I need to kill them later, so I need the process id. So I started each of them (via fork and exec) with the argument "-new-instance", but get the error "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." when a firefox process was already running (because there is just one allowed, I guess).

Is there a way to fix this problem, or at least get the pid of the process firefox connects to if i don't start it with "-new-instance"? By the way: It just has to work on one computer, so I can adjust settings etc. System: Arch Linux (Manjaro)

Hi, I googled something and then clicked on one of the search results to visit the website, then I got a Popup from my windows firewall "Windows Defender Firewall has blocked some features of this app". I checked and it was a real window from the firewall and not a spoofed message from the website. What exactly was Firefox trying to do? This is not a fresh install of Firefox and I use Firefox very often, this never happened before. I'm scared that it might be a zero day vulnerability and that my computer got infected. Or is this normal behavior and Firefox does this type of things sometimes?

This is not the account I am worried about but since I have no idea what password is attached to my firefox account I have no way to sign on as that user and had to create another account using another email account! I am disabled and have no way to remember passwords. It is essential that I be able to see them. This new update suddenly stops me from seeing them and I have no idea what the firefox account password is or if this is the same password as my computer? To make things worse, the keyboard on my main laptop is broken and I can barely enter my computer password, so if this is my account password I can't enter this. My laptop is a windows 10 machine which constantly updates itself and causes chaos. It has a password for the main machine that is on the machine NOT some cloud or microsoft. There is also a microsoft password somewhere but I have no idea what it is!

I need to transfer passwords to this tablet but have no way to add the device with the unknown password.

I can not believe that mozzilla would create a system like this with NO WARNING and does not seem to have any way to recover a password without a key that I don't think was set up either. There is no way to recover my password as far as I can tell or copy it. Whenever I try to click on manage my account I get a screen that says "500 error." Help!!!!!!

For instance every time i want to go to my Hotmail account, I have to type in the URL in the address bar where as I used to be able to hit the drop down arrow in the address bar, a menu would drop down and i could click on Hotmail or Bank of America, etc and be taken to the site.
