I tried to use automatic password generation option in Firefox on a website. That website requires us to have a symbol in password. But autogenerated passwords in Firefox have no symbols in them(Chrome does). Can we somehow get Firefox to do it?

Hi there, I run FF 73 on Lubuntu, and since the upgrade chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul is no longer found. I use it as a handy bookmarks and downloads manager within a tab. Error message:

"Firefox can't find the file at jar:file:///usr/lib/firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/places/places.xul. "

I realize that this question is similar to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1223548#answer-1127393 but it doesn't solve my issue. In fact the URI's listed also don't work I have found:

   chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/bookmarksSidebar.xul
   chrome://browser/content/places/historySidebar.xul 

Please advise. Thanks for your help!

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

Win 10/FF I reinstalled FF after automatically downloading 73.0 and I had a terrible day on computer yesterday. SLOW. It was fine today, for some reason, so there are no issues I can detect. Because I have an old laptop, should I download the 32-bit version? I spent a lot of time restoring FF, even though I thought everything would rollover. Can I do the change w/o reinstalling everything???

Thank you.

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

Some of the time, but not all the time, Firefox will refresh the page I'm on when I press the number 5 on my Macbook Pro (tested on 2019 and 2015). I'm using the latest version of Firefox and it's been like this for a while. This gets really annoying when I need to type the number 5 at the end of a long form and it just refreshes the page.

I know that F5 reloads the page but there is no chance of me pressing F5 since I would need to hold the Fn key and press the touchbar to do this. I've also logged my keys to make sure that F5 wasn't being registered somehow.

Hi all! I need help getting my Firefox running again. Today it crashed (due to lack of available RAM), I had to shut it down in the task manager. When I restarted the browser, it couldn't load any content anymore. That means the upper control bars of the browser window work as usual, the lower part of the window stays completely blank.

I can't load any websites, local servers or routers, no local content such as images, or offline htmls, nor internal pages such as about:config.

What I tried so far:

- disabeling hardware acceleration

- disabeling proxy settings

- starting firefox in safe mode

- refreshing firefox

- reinstalling firefox (73.0)

- reinstall with profile reset

- reinstall with manual deleting Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

...maybe even more.

Nothing helped.

Interestingly, even firefox portable shows the same behavior now, though at least one page was able to load after 15 minutes or so. I also noticed that the firefox.exe is still active in the taskmanager after I close the browser (under user tab, not under processes) - I have no idea if this has to do with the problem.

I would really appreciate any help! Thanks! Jay.
