I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I have two Windows 10 PC with Firefox.

Since several weeks in forms like gmail compose or facebook messenger or hotmail both sujbect and message, I cannot type the letter q in lowercase.

Fine typing Q but no q

I tried to find any solution to this but no results. I found a similar topic here with letter Q instead. I followed the steps but no luck as well. (Cannot type letter Q (weird bug!))

The issue is simple, typing q doesn't type anything. I can paste the Q from clipboard and works fine (this how I survived)

I have Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard by default. Tried with the standard English (US) and US international keyboard with the same behavior .

Any help is appreciated.

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox, and have been facing problems during Google sign-in.

I have two Google accounts, A & B, and I use either one to register on most websites.

After migrating to Firefox, I'm facing a problem whenever I try logging into a site using my Google ID.

Here's what happens:

1. I click on the "Login with Google" button. 2. Since I have already signed in to Google using both accounts, I see both A and B in the Account Picker page. 3. I choose A. 4. The page changes to a loading screen, where I get a "One moment please..." message.

After this, the loading circle keeps rotating, but nothing happens.

I think it has something to do with content blocking, but since I'm quite new to Firefox, I'm not sure how to fix this.

I'd really appreciate any help.

Thanks in advance!

The website 'https://1-rich-collins.pixels.com/' only shows some images on Firefox 74.0 while I can see all of the images on Microsoft Edge and Tor. I have followed the instructions at 'about:config' which stated 'look for 'browser.display.document_under_use' and then set to 0 but no 0 exists. It is only true or false. It was set to Boolean and when I clicked far right all I could do was click on a double arrow which now won't show Boolean. So I left it at True. I also tried Permissions on Firefox Page Info window, but the command Load Images (if I recall correctly) was not available so I could not click on a checkmark.

I've spoken with the website manager, whom I've known for years and she tells me nothing is wrong with the site, which is using fineartamerica.com as the domain. pixels is the subdomain if I understand her correctly. And at the fine art website all of my images display:https://fineartamerica.com/profiles/1-rich-collins


Let me know if I can provide any more details, or I've missed or mistakenly added anything, thanks Rich


A week or two ago I Refreshed Firefox 74.0 and it worked. But the next time I reopened it it wasn't working again.

Whenever I want to search something or type anything in Firefox it will automatically click what ever my cursor is over. This only happens when I press the A key though. I've tested it and it only happens on Firefox, and it doesn't matter what it is that the cursor is hovering over, as long as I press the A key it will register as a click. Is there a way to disable this as It's incredibly frustrating when I'm trying to search something and I end up "clicking" some random Youtube video or link.
