Hi,

with a lot of effort I edited three times all my container entries at about:preferences#containers, but the changes were not overtaken correctly.

Now I want to start from the scratch without having to create a new Firefox profile. How can I delete the container entries permanently ? I already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the extension, but the entries were still there afterwards.

Thanks

I am currently having problems with my Firefox browser. For example often if I type something into the google search box at the right of the address bar and hit return nothing happens until I go down and select Bing instead of the google setting. Also in hotmail (I am on a desktop) if I go to reply, the original is now ether twice. This does not happen if I use Google browser. But I prefer Firefox as I have used it for years.

My concern is if I delete Firefox and reinstall it, I may lose some of the settings or bookmarks that I have set over the years.

Any suggestions? Please simple as i am old and not computer savvy.

Your help would be so appreciated. I am currently on Firefox 107.0 (64 bit)

Thanks, Anthony

More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

I've noticed there seems to be some kind of issue with Youtube. I had jumped into the site today same as usual, and found that there were times when it was not playing properly. I couldn't shut off annotations, for example, and then there were times when the browser would say that the page was slowing down Firefox (often taking up to 60% of memory in my task manager, which should not be possible). Other times I couldn't pause a video. or if I closed the vdeo out, it would still briefly play audio from it in the background. I tried clearing the cache and later my temp files in my laptop and checked other sites to see if similar issues occur. None of them seem to be affected by this. I even shut down the computer and retarted it while putting it on the charger during startup to clear any bugs via power cycle and this is still happening on and off. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

Hi,

as an admin I administer O365 web-sites/consoles in Firefox. I have two accounts in Firefox: my normal account, and my admin account which has far greater rights. The problem I am having is since I have enabled the option "Allow Windows single sign-on for Microsoft, work, and school accounts" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/windows-sso?as=u&utm_source=inproduct), I always have to confirm two times that I want my admin account to login to for example: https://admin.exchange.microsoft.com/#/ Is there a way to tell FF that I want only the admin account to logon to the specified link so I don't have to select the account every time?

Thanks

The Browser is gone completly basicly. I opened a "few" Tabs and then it suddenly crashed with my PC. Now My PC is getting old so Crashes aren't new but after the Restart of the PC Firefox just didn't work, it would Open but that's where it ends i can't access anything it doesn't react to any inputs, it's black screen can't even see my bookmarks it doesn't open last opende sites or anything altough i can Input somehting in the Hot bar but it won't react to it and just try to google it but that won't work as well. I installed a second version of Firefox now but for example my passwords.. not all of those were saved somewhere else. So if someone knows a fix for that or to just get them another way through files along side my bookmarks that would be very helpfull. thankss

If I open multiple browser windows, each one moves about 1/4 inch to the right of the previous browser window. So if for example I opened 12 new browser windows, the 12th one would end up about 3 inches to the right of the first one. This is most annoying. How do I get each new browser window to open in precisely the same place as the previous browser window already open?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Every time I close and re-open firefox, the extensions Ublock Origin and Translate Web Pages become invisible in my tool bar even though they are pinned. The extensions also stop working until I disable and then enable them again, as well as this they also lose all settings I have saved on them. For some reason other extensions such as Youtube enhancer do not do this and work perfectly fine. I have tried looking up the question to find related but not applicable solutions. any help appreciated
