My Firefox will not open no matter what I try because it continuously tells me, "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."

This error started happening because my Firefox originally wasn't saving the add-ons that I was trying to add. If I closed my browser and opened another one it would be gone. I tried refreshing the browser but that didn't help. I eventually tried reinstalling to see if that would fix the issue and then this error popped up and now I cannot stop it.

I tried reinstalling. I tried deleting the profile out of appdata, etc in hopes it would make a fresh one. I tried making a new profile by running it without opening the browser only to be given an error that doesn't save it. I'm at a loss on how to get my Firefox working again. It is my favorite browser and this is the first time I've ever really had a severe problem with it. Help!

My MacBook Pro is running OS 11.0.1 and using Firefox 83.0. My battery runs down faster than it used to. Apple suggested checking the Activity monitor and I noticed several instances of FirefoxCP Web Content. I have lots of tabs open. Most of them are using <1% of CPU, but one is about 50%. Is there any way to figure out what that is other than shutting down the tabs one at a time and watching the Activity Monitor?

Hi everyone,

Thanks a lot for taking time reading this! :)

I have the following problem with my firefox on Kubuntu 20.04 on my laptop: since a couple of weeks, firefox opens normaly after rebooting, remembered all tabs and my firefox account etc., but it's just not loading anything. I can still type in a web adress or something in the search, I can also still select the drop-down menu on the right ("Open menu") and select e.g. "Settings", but nothing happens afterwords. Same problem for all websites. Some of the main buttons are also not functional (refresh, back/forward). I attached a screenshot from the "empty" firefox (but not sure if that's of any help anyways ;) ).

I tested a couple of things so far, nothing helped:

1) Internet is working, I tested ping, apt is working as well as a differnt browser I installed now).

2) I reinstalled firefox completely by running the following commands:

      sudo apt update
      sudo apt purge firefox // sudo apt --purge autoremove firefox
      sudo rm -rf .mozilla
      reboot
      sudo apt update
      sudo apt install firefox
      (Since I removed the profile folder, the standard tab and bookmarks open/show after starting firefox now, as expeced. I'm also not longer logged in.)

3) By starting firefox via the console, no error messages were shown

4) I created a second ubuntu unser profile, to test if firefox would work there: it doesn't

5) Since I have a dualboot with Win10/Kubuntu 20.04, I started Windows and tested firefox there: it is working as usual.

6) I also obviously tried to google this problem, but either I put the wrong keywords in or this problem is pretty unique/new?

If you need any further information on my system, I'm happy to provide them! Thanks a lot for any recommendations and further ideas, what to do! I'm pretty much desperate for a solution by now, as during home office a not well working system is a pain! ;)

Thanks and stay safe, Katrin

Firefox has been awesome. But, my computer just updated to windows 11 and now it doesn't work. Sometimes I try to open the browser and nothing happens (but I somehow end up with something like 7 instances of it running in the background, according to task manager), sometimes I get it to open, but it won't load my homepage or anything, and sometimes it seems to work fine but only for a little while - then it just stops responding.

I have no idea why this is happening or how to fix it. I tried the browser reset, which helped for a little bit but then the problems came back. I think having a theme installed makes it worse, but now I can't even get settings to open so I can try turning it off to see if that helps.

Any ideas? Not being able to use the internet on my computer is a pretty big deal. I'd prefer to not switch browsers, but I don't know what other option I've got at the moment.

Thanks!

So I've noticed how some video files are able to be played back in Firefox. Some are not able to what so ever, for example I've created a text video using this FFPMEG command: ffmpeg -f lavfi -i testsrc=duration=10:size=1280x720:rate=30 testsrc.mp4

which created the following file: https://astolfo.nl/i/z2ada.mp4 Both the uploaded version and the local .mp4 are unable to be played back in Firefox. However opening them up in edge chromium both files play back perfectly. Besides Edge I've also confirmed it plays back nicely in MPV.

I've tried Hardware acceleration, but both having it on and off did not change the fact that these files wouldn't want to playback in Firefox. Safe mode also did not effect this issue.

While I'm testing local testing for website, whenever I typed/entered localhost OR localhost:8000 Firefox keep redirecting/guesing subdomain for it(which="www"). Made my testing messed up.

There's same issue on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1216065 None of those work.

set: browser.fixup.alternate.enabled to false or Connection Settings with No proxy

Please, stop. Chrome and Edge behave normally. This site need darkmode :/

Hi,

I had to delete all my profiles and completely reinstall Firefox because Firefox was not changing the color of previous websites to purple no matter what I tried. I thought I could delete the profiles and create a brand new one to start over fresh.

After reinstalling Firefox (latest version) I have run into a problem where under <about:addons> <Plugins> it shows a yellow box and an error saying "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly".

This message won't go away and Widevine will not be installed at all. I cannot browse and Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max etc.

I have tried unchecking and checking the <Play DRM-controlled content> under <about:preferences> which does not work.

I have also tried going to this (link)link and manually installing it but the webpage for my OS's .zip file won't load for me.

Hi there,

We use GMail/ Calendar/ Drive for our business. On the official account, I am seeing a continuous - multi-day - situation where my Google Drive won't load when I point my browser to it unless I do at least one refresh after getting to Drive and waiting for my list of folders and documents to show up.

In the mean time, the following error shows upon on the bottom left of my screen - "The server encountered an error. Please try again later." - this has persisted for over 2 weeks when I restarted using Fiefox earlier this month. I do not get this error when using Chrome or Safari.

Today, I am also not able to see the user who last modified a document or a folder last, as you can see in the image below.

Please tell me what I can do to fix this issue.

Thanks, Mahesh

On new laptop with Windows 10, with an external monitor in extended desktop mode, Firefox is opening partially off screen such that the top bar is inaccessible so I cannot drag it back on screen. If I close it and reopen, it will usually be back on screen. How can I fix this?

Perhaps related: tabs are not reopened and Restore Previous Session does not work.

There are no extensions open.

Thank you for assistance.

Yesterday I was using Firefox normally (browsing, Discord, etc.). Today when I opened it, it wouldn't load any page. If I type something in the adress bar it will auto-complete or show suggestions based on google, but when I hit enter, nothing happens. It doesn't even try to load anything. I also can't go into options. When I click on the options button, nothing happens. I am not running in any compatibility modes. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, didn't help. I am not using any add-ons. I have done several virus searches. Other browsers work fine. I'm running out of ideas now, that's why I'm doing this post.
