Hi all, For the last few months I've had a persistent issue with my Firefox browser on Windows where I have to continually toggle the 'Ask to save passwords' option so that Firefox fills my username and passwords automatically, gives me the option to save them automatically and so on.

Everytime I click the option on, it works for maybe a few days before I have to yet again toggle it on even though I haven't done anything like close my Firefox window, restart my computer or any similar thing. My Firefox and laptop are also on their latest updates and regardless this issue has continued through multiple update cycles.

It is very frustrating as I'm applying for jobs regularly so manually having to use alternate ways to autofill my details is annoying - I know a password manager is probably the best solution but regardless this is still a very annoying issue.

Hi - Any advice would be welcomed. I've tried to create an account on a website that offers online courses. The 'create an account' form just simply didn't appear using Firefox as my browser. I eventually tried Microsoft Edge and the 'create an account' form was available straight away. Please can you advise if I am able to access this website using Firefox and how?

Many thanks

How to prevent Firefox from opening links in a non-default container

I'm using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension and it's great. I have a number of containers manually created and use them according to my personal preference. No sites are associated with containers via settings, it's always manual.

Among those containers there's one I use for all things Google (Gmail etc). Which was great, as it allowed me to use both my personal Google account and G-Suite integrated with the workplace's SSO by simply using a default container for work stuff.

I updated Firefox to version 127.0.1, after which I discovered that clicking on Google Docs links in external applications now opens a tab in that custom container I created for my personal use. Which is clearly inconvenient, as most Google Docs links I open are work-related, so my personal account has nothing to do with them. Opening same links from within Firefox, e.g. by clicking on a bookmark, still opens a default container tab.

As I mentioned, there are no explicit association between Google links and that container, the "Limit to designated sites" option is switched off.

Is there anything I can do to revert back to the old behaviour, which is opening every external link in a default container?

Hi,

I have an issue with color profiles that I'd like some help with. For my setup, I'm using a thinkpad with a wide gamut display running in fedora.

The issue is that an image exported from Darktable looks overly saturated in Firefox. I found I was able to fix this by specifying the color profile using the flag `gfx.color_management.display_profile`. However that profile is the OS default, and according to Firefox it should've been picked up when querying the OS.

How can I see what icc/color profile Firefox is using? Alternatively, what method is Firefox using to query the OS for its default profile? Thank you.

Font scaling issue on dual monitor setup 3440x1440 and 3840x2160

I am running a dual monitor setup. My primary monitor's resolution is 3440x1440, and my secondary is 3840x2160.


The text on my Firefox toolbars and menus looks very clear on my secondary monitor (3840x2160), it looks as I would expect it to; however, on my primary monitor (3440x1440) it's smaller which makes it pixelated meaning it's much less clear. I've been using Firefox for about an hour and I'm already bugged enough to post here.


Due to the different resolutions I need to keep the layout.css.devPixelsPerPx in about:config to the default -1.0 so the windows scale as per my Windows 11 settings.

Dear community,

using Thunderbird for my workflow with mails and tasks, I wonder if it is possible to create a task automatically from a flagged email.

Of course, I know it is possible to convert mails to tasks, but first I would like to speed up the process and second, it would be great, if TB could also convert mails which were flagged on a different client, e.g. on my mobile phone: 1. mail is flagged on phone, 2. flag is sync on server, 3. TB creates tasks on this mail when synced with server

Alternatively/additionally, does anybody has experiences with using IMAP flags as trigger in automation scenarios e.g. in zapier, make.com or Power Automate?

Thanks for your help, Roland
