For many years now I have used the beta channel. At the end of last week I checked for updates and received 73.0b11. I was already on 73.0 beta, probably b10.

Since that update I am unable to edit the contents of the address bar unless I launch a Private Window, where the problem doesn't occur.

I have tried using the "Restart with Add-ons Disabled..." option from the Help menu but the problem remains.

I am running on Windows 10, 64-bit, [Version 10.0.18363.592], with all the latest Microsoft updates.

I dont love the Navigation privée page web NOT for me :((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

Lorsque vous naviguez dans une fenêtre privée, Firefox ne conservera pas :

   Les pages visitées
   Les cookies
   Les recherches
   Les fichiers temporaires

Firefox conservera :

   Les marque-pages
   Les téléchargements

La navigation privée ne vous rend pas anonyme sur Internet. Votre fournisseur d’accès à Internet ou votre employeur peuvent toujours connaître les pages que vous visitez. STOP STOP STOP YOU PAGE WEB IS SPAM FOR ME I LOSE MY TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-(

Today I am observing some odd behaviour with the restart and not now buttons for update. The dialog is clearly still supposed to be visible, however is is more of a graphics artifact.

Click on the windows task bar, change pages and the buttons disappear. once they appear they appear in every tab. To make them appear, move the mouse over them. I am assuming that a Firefox restart will fix the issue and do the requested update. I am making the report because this should not happen with professionally developed software. Firefox should be past the odd graphics glitches of the past.

Cannot access passwords; cannot remake passwords

Problem:
Cannot access passwords protected by master password.

Normal mode symptoms:
- No master password is ever asked
-- Trying to set one is futile (see screenshot)
- Certificate is at status "Ready" instead of "Logged In" or "not Logged In" (see screenshot)
- No fields are filled with usernames and passwords when needed.
-- No prompt for it is shown either

Background:
I transitioned from windows to linux
I made a full copy of all my profile when transitioning.
I controlled firefox's version to make sure I would transition using the same version number.
I have backups.
Nothing appears in the browser's console when I start or when I try to change master password.
If I try to view the passwords I have, however... ~120 messages appear telling it cannot decrypt (see screenshot)

Tried:
1-Safe-mode:
-- The master password system works as it is supposed to. I get a master password prompt at browser's first password use.
2- Deleting prefs.js
-- Still not working
3- Disabling all extensions manually
-- Still not working
4- Deleting storage directory
-- Still not working

-Trying 2 + 3, 3 + 4, 2 + 3 + 4 or 2 + 4....
-- Still not working.

What am I missing?
Thanks in advance

I am running with Firefox 66.0b13 (64-bit) and ubuntu 18.04.2

This morning my computer started downloading stuff. This went on for over an hour. I check the download in tools and the only thing there was something from yesterday which was done yesterday. The reason I noticed is because it was sucking up all my internet.

Is there anyway to see just what firefox is downloading and where its putting it?

thank you..............

opened firefox this morning on my pc to watch youtube while getting ready. It was 5:30 am so Iwasn't quite awake and I don't really remember what happened. I think I opened firefox and went to youtube, I was asked to sign in to see my subscriptions on youtube. I singed in. I keep my zoom at 160% big monitor, it was back at normal 100%. My bookmarks, cookies, addons and passwords are gone. I tried to restore to a previous version, but there isn't one. The newest save in my old firefox folder is from 2017. What happened?

I was using a staging site and then went live and redirected the staging domain to the live domain. However, I then needed to re-instate the staging site. Now, whenever I go to the home page of the staging site, it redirects me to the live site. Any other page or url doesn't redirect. If I put a query parameter in the url, it doesn't redirect either.

I have a new computer. I have installed beta. I run beta on 2 other computers a tablet and my phone. It instructed me that I needed to unlink other devices and start over. My credentials will not work and a reset email is not being sent. I would like to get my devices logged in and linked again. If it isn't possible I will reluctantly move back to Explorer. Mozilla has been so easy to use until now???? Very frustrating.

After updating to Firefox 70, many websites that were previously working do not work when I navigate to them. However, if I clear the cookies related to that site, then the website works normally again. I've been having to do this for many websites and it's getting tedious. Furthermore, I've had to do this multiple times to the same sites after having cleared cookies previously. For these repeat non-functionality incidents, they come up after reopening the browser, but not every time the browser is quit.

After starting Firefox, Sync starts and gets stuck on "Syncing" till I restart. Ever page shows as bookmarked for a while and then they all turn into not bookmarked. Backups won't be saved. Changes to bookmarks and adding new ones won't work either. Have tried a new profile, deleting xulstore.json and places.sqlite and have also tried safe-mode and all of them together. The sync is still in a loop. I have about 56000 bookmarks(I know that's a lot!) but it didn't use to take more than a few seconds. And not being able to see the last sync time by hovering really sucks as well btw.

I don’t want to be rude or disrespectful towards you volunteers at Mozilla Support, but I wonder why I don’t get any support on two questions I posted here.

The first one was posted almost 1 month ago ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1157093 )… The second one 10 days ago ( https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1159272 actually a repost of the first one with a shorter and clearer explanation of the issue - I thought that might help, and there was also a banner on top of the page about an issue at the support forum)...

Essentially what I ask for is a confirmation of the issue and whether or not I could file it as a bug. Not really complicated, I thought.

Why are my questions ignored for such a long time?

Foxfire auto updated the program and it lost all bookmarks and even login. The result is I cannot do anything with my computer that needs the internet. I have spent many hours trying the suggested fixes and I cannot get them back and I do not have my password so that I cannot change if for fear I will loose access to the bookmarks. There seems to be no accountability from Mozilla and no way to reach any one. Is anyone else having this problem.

I received, on 5/9/17, a pop-up that the above patch was needed. Malwarebytes Premium would not allow installation, so I did not install. Today I noticed that prior downloads of updates came from addresses ending in ".net". The rejected patch was from an address ending in ".com". Should I use this as a flag for future purported updates ?
