I had this problem yesterday when I started up this browser it said, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem.". So I read through the article and it said to restart my mac, so I did just that and pow, my bookmarks and history returned! Little did I know that the next day, (today) I'd start up Firefox and the message was there again, but this time, it got even worse.

       First I tried to tackle the bookmark problem, "Quit Firefox" they said, "Restart your computer." they said, "Create a new database". None of those worked, so I scrambled the internet looking for answers, all of them resolved their problems, every one else was A-ok, excluding me, and just like that, my add-ons weren't working anymore! Ad-block Plus, Dark Reader, Privacy Badger, nothing. I tried to delete Adblock first and reinstall it, because that's what their page told me to do, and I keep getting this message trying to reinstall it saying, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." 
       And little did I know that every other extension said the exact same thing. So i knew something was going on that was out of my control. And then finally, the "pièce de résistance" to my pain and suffering through out this whole hour or so, pages won't even load even though I'm connected to the internet, how perfect... Even trying to update the browser won't work, downloading a new one also goes through the same "pages not loading problem. 
        So in conclusion, hopefully, just hopefully, you guys can help me out. I'll probably have to resort to my old laptop, (which is slow and almost unusable with how buggy that thing is.) seeing how my mac has also been running into problems these last few days as well before this conundrum. 

Good Luck and Happy Thanksgiving!

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

How to disable: "Your internet connection was restored" notifications? – Terribly annoying and only started in the last version 77.0.1 very recently. I rather switch to another browser if I cannot get rid of this. Checked my 3 plug-ins, but cannot find anything there, nor if it is something on Facebook I cannot find it. Any idea?

Hello,

I have the following query. I have two certificates from infoNotary with which I am using for work. One private and one business certificate. In Firefox "privacy and security " options I have put the check to" ask me every time " which certificate to use when I am login into different pages that require it. When I log in a site for example the ministry of finance website, I am not getting the drop down menu to select which certificate I can use. This occurred after the latest firefox update. In order to use this options I am forced in Privacy and Security options -> cookies and site data to check the " delete cookies when firefox is closed." Only then when I restart Firefox I am getting the option to choose which certificate I want to use. This is an inconvenience for me, as whenever I log into a site I am pushed to agree and accept cookies and data. I want to be able to automatically accept cookies after the first acceptance and still be prompted to select which certificate I would like to use.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Saving cache

Security settings for my bank account allow three choices for verifying identity: every time I log in, every time I open the account, or just whenever the bank needs to know. For the past decade, the third has been in effect. But starting in September, even if I click on option 3, every morning I once again have to prove identity.

In discussing the issue with the bank I was told that it was because I clear my cache every night when I shut down. I said I had been doing that since 2015 without a problem - why the change? The bank tech support guy asked if I accessed the bank web site through Firefox, and I said I did. He said that, being an open source software, Firefox issues far more technical updates than any other browser, and one of the recent updates must have changed the system of how cache and cookies are cleared.

I then went into Firefox Preferences and it appeared that I can allow specific websites to continue active while other websites are cleared. I tried to do that last night with the bank website, but to no avail. This morning I had to, once again, prove identity through phone message.

Just to confirm: since 2015, I have made no changes to my computer system (iMac and MacBook), kept the same Internet service provider, used the same anti-viral software, and cleared cache and cookies daily. All that time, I could open my bank account daily without proving identity each time. Les than two months ago, that suddenly changed. The bank says it's likely the browser. Any thoughts?

Even if type something in the bar and then click on the Google icon, it searches on Bing. If I click on the DuckDuckGo icon, it searches on DuckDuckGo. How can I switch my search engine to Google?

Problem One: 1Password extension not working for me. I installed Firefox and made it my primary browser. Extensions have been a disaster for me. First I tried adding the 1 Password extension. I did this because when I tried opening a page from 1 Password uninstalled on the browser, it didn't l as it should (has always done so with Safari). I had to open 1Password separately, and copy the information, which is tedious.

So I installed the 1Password Extension on Firefox. It didn't work unless I'd opened the desktop version of 1Password, it still didn't open and fill.

So I removed the extension. I then decided to give it another try. The extension shows up on Firefox. But now it has a little lock on the icon. The problem is that clicking on the icon doesn't open anything! I've rebooted the computer, and only reinstalled the 1Password extension. The same problem occurs, then, without clicking on the problematic icon, I reboot the computer again. It hasn't helped.

PROBLEM TWO: I'm having an additional problem with extensions. When I click on the extension for Pocket (for instance), the program opens, but fails to recognize that I have a paid subscription, asking me to upgrade. This is true for other sites I have subscriptions to, limiting me using the "free" version, which limits what I can open as well as what I can save.

It sounds unbelievable, but that's what's happened to me. I'm using enhanced tracking protection for all sites. Macbook Pro ; Catalina OS 10.15.7 (19H15) - most recent version Max OS

I appreciate any help you can give me. This is way over my head! I've tried everything I can think of, except for uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox.

When I close that tab, I can proceede as normally.

If I click on that button where it says "Open Network Login Page," I get another screen where that button is gone, and it says "You must log in to this network before you can access the internet."

Both of these pages has a question mark in a circle, but this is not clickable.

I am using an iMac running OSX 10.12.6. Firefox version 82.0.2.

For the last couple of weeks I have found that I am often unable to open many links on websites while using Firefox. I click on the link and nothing happens. If I hover over the link, I will see a URL in the bottom left of the page.

I have not found any particular pattern for what links work/don't work, it seems to be pretty random.

I suspect this is something simple that I just am not aware of. I'd really appreciate any ideas to get Firefox working correctly again. Currently I am being forced to use Chrome on many of my usual sites where Firefox will not work.

Thanks in advance for your help!

The Zoom Scheduler extension for Firefox used to work fine and was really helpful when I need to schedule Zoom meetings for work. Around Oct 8, it stopped working and gives the error "Schedule meeting failed. Please try again." when I use the "Make it a Zoom meeting" button in Google Calendar or "Schedule a Meeting" in the extension button.

I tried going through Zoom support and they eventually said they would escalate the case to their engineers, but other people have confirmed that the extension still works with Firefox and I'm starting to suspect it is something wrong with my installation or my computer or something.

Here are the things I've tried:

  • Uninstalled the extension and added it back
  • Made sure there is only 1 Google account added and that I'm logged in to it
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Reinstalled Firefox
  • Removed FF profiles and reinstalling
  • Tested the Zoom extension in Chrome (yes, it works there)
  • Set popups to not be blocked
  • Cannot test in Safe Mode since the problem is with an extension, but at this point the Zoom extension is the only one installed
  • Looked at what happens in the console when I try to use the Zoom extension (unfortunately I don't understand what these lines mean): https://www.screencast.com/t/eg53k7KcRu
  • One more clue or possibly red herring: I also had problems recently using the LastPass extension where you are supposed to be able to export all your passwords, it is supposed to pop up a window but instead got stuck in a loop of requesting my master password

I have been building websites using Firefox for a good 10 years now, but over the last year or so clearing the cache has become more and more frustrating and it's making Firefox unusable for developing websites.

Basically, I am making edits to a website's style sheet and uploading it and the new style sheet is not then being loaded in Firefox.

I have spent the last hour+ looking for a definitive answer to this problem.

I am using both methods I know for clearing cache

1) click on the burger and go to Privacy and Security / go to cookies and site data / click clear data / leave "cached web content" clicked on (switch off "Cookies and Site data") / click clear

2) hold command / shift / R

Most of the time it seems both these methods don't seem to work as the browser won't load the new style sheet.

I know the style sheet has uploaded as when I test the site in Safari (I might have to use the Empty Caches function once) and the new style sheet loads straight away.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, or may be I am missing something fundamental that will cure this problem - all I can say is, it is very, very, very annoying - and really wastes time when you're trying to work.

Is anyone else getting these problems and is there a quick and easy way to be ensuring the cached css file does not keep loading.

btw I also used a private window and was still getting the same problem.

I like using Firefox and don't really want to use another browser as they are rubbish in other ways, but feel like I'm getting to a point where I have no option if I don't find out how to solve this problem.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Regards
