I just was asked to download Firefox Sync. I thought it was just a new version of the same old Firefox. Now, when I try to open a new tab, I have to sign into Sync again!!! This really slows me down! Please tell me how I can get out of this. Jen

On the Privacy and Security page, when I press the Settings button next to Autoplay, the screen freezes for a few seconds but never pops up a box to allow me to change settings. All the other Settings buttons on that screen work fine. This is on a WIndows 10 Pro 1903 machine, currently running Firefox 72.0.2 I tried disabling the few Add-ons I have, but that didn't help. I cleared my cache but still no luck. I am running Avast, but I don't see why that would prevent this one Settings button from working. I have long been a fan of Firefox, and used to run FlashBlock when that add-on was still available. I'd like to find something similar now.

Started recently about the time of lastest Firefox update. I receive Links to comments made about family tree. When I click on the link it takes me to Ancestry home page. It did not behave this way until just recently. Also bookmarks for page that I saved for a spot on Ancestry only go to the home page instead of the page I bookmarked.

This version is just junk!!!!! Just set the preferences and sign in Firefox and all other accounts like Gmail etc. Trying to save the history and all the passwords and everything you got. That's all gone when you shut Firefox down. When you reopen none of your history or passwords are there or you start from scratch. This is absolutely ridiculous. This version should never been released absolute disgrace. It doesn't deserve to be called a browser. I'm so disgusted and angry I can't put it in words.

Fix the damn thing!!!!

It is so bad when I try to get into accounts like Gmail it sees a different computer every time I log in. For security they have to phone me every time I reopen Firefox to to get into my account. I have to verify who I am!!!! Every single time that includes my banking online!!!!!

I added the "stop autopause Youtube" extension, still pausing. I read the part where it says "this won't stop the autopause button from showing, but it will counteract it & resume." Not so. I'm logging off for the day, too tired of messing with it. Feel free to email me directly to ... whenever. Until then, I'll keep wasting my tv remote batteries & staying glued to the laptop, lol! Thanks so much!

Hi gang. I created a second profile because I'd like to have different browser bookmarks for home and work use. However, my bookmarks are bleeding between profiles - when I change them in the "work" profile, those changes are applied in the "home" profile and vice versa.

Any idea what the issue might be here?

Firefox 72 causes Add-Ons to stop running while still enabled

Firefox 72.0.1 and 72.0.2 have the same issue, so the latest release did not solve it. My add-ons all stop working, or seem to time out somehow, while still showing as enabled. Removing and then "Undo Remove" of the add-ons restarts this new timeout clock/fixes the problem, but it's extremely frustrating and ineffective.

  • This did not happen prior to 72.0.1.
  • The add-ons do retain my settings even while timed out/stopped/somehow broken, so they are not actually disabled during these outages.
  • This affects all add-ons, so it is not a problem with any one specific add-on.

I used to receive all my emails from my primary email account in my secondary account. Now this is not happening. There was some sort of change to my FireFox account that may have stopped the messages being forwarded. I checked and the forward is still set up with the primary email, so there is something blocking it in the secondary email and I can't figure out what?

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04, and every time I start firefox, it gives me the "Choose User Profile" prompt, even with "Use the selected profile without asking on startup" selected. My about:profiles has only one profile (which is set to default), and both my profiles.ini file and installs.ini file contain only that profile. The profiles.ini file also has StartWithLastProfile=1. It's not really that big a deal, but it is annoying and any help would be appreciated.

Hi, I'm using Jellyfin (like Plex) and when playing something on Firefox the subtitles won't break lines. I checked with the Jellyfin team and they said that the subtitles are rendered on the browser. When I tested it on Chrome it worked as intended. Added two screenshots, one from FF and one from Chrome. Thanks!

How to get tabs from a previous session back when FF starts?

Hello everyone. I am an old FF Windows user, but faced something new since moved to FF on Mac. It does keep previous session when I try to troubleshoot - so I mean starting it, opening couple of tabs and trying to restart - but unfortunately it does not if FF kept opened for days or weeks. That's a pain, as lot of pinned tabs collected to the moment and I simply do not remember what was that weeks ago and it's not so easy to search throughout the history.

Of course, Startup set to Restore previous session and History set to Remember. I am aware there might be sessionstore.js or something like this, but might be there is some additional magic option to be set to avoid the issue? I am aware of that "last window to close - the only to remember" problem. This is not the case.

Just one window. Only pinned tabs. Clean window on start. No option to restore previous session (it's empty).

Appreciate any idea. Thanks.

P.S. I have found this thread, unfortunately it was left unanswered and archived: https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1174479

I have serveral accoutinfos (username, password) saved in firefox. Normally, when wanting to login on one of these websites, firefox gave me only the one fitting login, wich was good. Since 2-3 months I also get the fitting one and several other sites displayed as possible logins. These Websites have nothing to to with the website I want to login to. Not even the username / email address etc. are the same. In the attached scrrenshot, only the first two entries are for this very website. The rest does not make any sense.

This is really annoying. Is there a configuration to disable this which I haven't found yet ?

I've tried changing the default search engine to Google and got rid of Yahoo among the options. I've removed all the extenions and addons except those specifically installed by Firefox and the utility LastPass which remembers all my passwords. I've done a computer-wide search for Yahoo and can't find anything obvious. I've read all the help files on the subject and followed every step. Still the browser uses Yahoo when I type a search in the address bar. Please help! Yahoo is a terrible search engine. I like Firefox but I'll have to switch if I can't fix this.
