The email associated with my account was hacked and I am seeing suspicious activity around it still. So I am changing the email or deleting accounts I am no longer using. However, firefox wants to send a confirmation email to the one that no longer exists for me to change the email on the account. How do I proceed?

Receiving this error: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.

My desktop app redirects user to a login screen on Firefox, and I want to automate it using Selenium. My current workflow: 1. Launch Selenium-controlled Firefox browser using GeckoDriver 2. Click on "Login" button on my desktop app. The desktop app launches the login screen on user's OS default browser using the default user profile (in which case I set in profiles.ini to the temp profile copy created by Selenium). 3. (ERROR) Popup on the above error is displayed

Code: import configparser import os

web_driver = selenium_webdriver.Firefox(executable_path='C:\\Users\\mnxl\\.wdm\\drivers\\geckodriver\\win64\\v0.34.0\\geckodriver') profile = web_driver.capabilities['moz:profile']

  1. Path to the Firefox profiles folder

profiles_path = os.path.expanduser(r'~\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox')

  1. Path to the profiles.ini file

profiles_ini_path = os.path.join(profiles_path, 'profiles.ini')

  1. Read the profiles.ini file

config = configparser.ConfigParser() config.read(profiles_ini_path)

  1. Find the section for the profile to set as default

for section in config.sections():

   if config.has_option(section, 'Path') and config.get(section, 'Path') == profile:
       # Set this profile as the default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '1')
   else:
       # Set all other profiles as not default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '0')
  1. Write the changes back to the profiles.ini file

with open(profiles_ini_path, 'w') as configfile:

   config.write(configfile)

Mozilla Firefox will not open websites for gooutdoors, millets or blacks, or any linked to the 'blacks' group. Their website addresses are all different but there is clearly some association with the group.

No messages, just a blank screen as though continually waiting.

Used to be ok but this issue has been consistent for at least the last two weeks, and there have been no changes to equipment or software in that time.

Have cleared cache and cookies, and restarted the router but makes no difference.

These websites open ok on my phone, which uses google chrome, so specific to firefox. I use norton 360 on both pc and phone and have done for last couple of years with no issue.

Previous post from around 3 years ago show this issue has occurred for other people in the past and no solution provided, where some reported the problem evewntually disappeared on its own with no explanation, but don't think it lasted this long.

Help please.

As the title states, I have been testing out web push with a project I have in mind and am running into the issue that on firefox after making a request to send a web push, it takes a few minutes before firefox acknowledges that it got it and shows it. Afterwards, web pushes are shown instantly until again after being inactive for some time (not really know to me) it is delayed again in receiving web pushes. On chrome, they are received instantly every time. I am also setting the priority to the highest when making the push request.
