This just occurred today. I have removed and reinstalled Firefox. I have attempted to change my profile. I have attempted the solutions already posted. In this case, I cannot seem to access any part of Firefox through any means. I find Firefox listed among my programs, but at none of those locations can I open or address Firefox.

Recently I've been having trouble with the dropdown menus in Firefox, such as the History and Bookmarks menu in the tool bar and the right-click menu. Intermittently when I open the menus they close within a second or two without me doing anything. This only happens in the Firefox window, all of my other apps and browsers are fine.

I'm running on a Macbook Pro with OSX 10.15.1 and Firefox 70.0.1. I've restarted Firefox and it fixes the problem for a short time then the problem returns. I've cleared my History, including Caches and Cookies, reinstalled Firefox, restarted my computer and tried disabling my add-ons. The issue keeps coming back.

Hi all,

On some sites (I think it has something to do possibly with code snippets because these always display incorrectly) Firefox is showing this illegible font as per the screenshot. I've also attached a Chrome screenshot to show how it should be displaying. I have not been able to find a fix online for this. I have done the suggestions of clearing cache, checking font settings etc that I could find in the options, but made no difference. Please could anyone help? It's driving me mad because I can't make out the font at all!

Michael.

How to prevent Firefox from removing my extension's data when I remove debug version?

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this: ``` "browser_specific_settings": { "gecko": { "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}", "stric… (read more)

I have an extension with id setup in manifest like this:

``` "browser_specific_settings": {

   "gecko": {
     "id": "{e3ec45ef-43ba-499d-8469-6d0e2f06921f}",
     "strict_min_version": "42.0"
   }
 },

```

which uses indexedDB(PouchDB). I installed that extension from addons.mozilla.org, disabled, installed temporarily version for developing and Firefox removes data of both extensions(cuz they have the same id) every time I remove only temporarily version.

This does not happen when I don't set id in manifest(temporarily version has random id in this case), but it's not a solution cuz some API's and Android version of Firefox requires id to be set manually

How to prevent Firefox from removing data of normal extension when I remove temporarily one?

Just in case someone wants to reproduce the issue:

1. Install this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/tagit/?src=search
2. Go to extension's page (button with eyes on browser's panel)
3. Go to "Tags" page and create any tag(write something and press Enter)
4. Disable this extension on about:addons page
5. Clone its repository and checkout to commit where id is in manifest `git clone https://github.com/DevAlone/tagit.git; git checkout 8e0d04201865fd7b7543b167279a045c89408d5c`
6. Install dependencies and build `npm install; npm run build`
7. Install that temporarily extension(`build` dir) on about:debugging page
8. Remove that temporarily extension on about:debugging page
9. Enable normal extension on about:addons page
10. Go to the Tags page again to see that database is gone

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.

Hi. I have a problem with http://metagmae.org/page/ and I have no idea how that came to me. No matter what I do, nothing can help me to avoid that thing. It auto-starts Firefox and tries to get more information. It is said that it is a virus. And I can't delete it from Firefox because I can't find it. Can you please help me to solve this? I uninstalled Firefox and deleted everything but when I installed it back, it came back! It is terrible and makes me crazy. Please help me with that. I love Firefox and it is now almost 15 years I am using it. I started with Firefox 6.0 or something.

My 2018 Macbook Pro updated last night and this morning I opened Firefox to find the window somewhat zoomed in, and it seems like I’m unable to zoom out. It’s hard to describe, but essentially the bookmark toolbar, all tabs and window header are gone, and if I zoom back out in “view” they stay gone. Same goes for the actual top of the webpage I’m on, any webpage. If I go into “preferences” I can scroll up and down the menu on the right side but still can’t see the very top, and I can’t see the options on the left so I can’t fix it that way. I already reinstalled it and it did nothing. I also tried to adjust my Mac display settings and it also does nothing. What’s wrong? Someone fix it please, I HATE Safari, I want my firefox back!!!!

I never had a firefox account till now. So, I had to reset the pc where i had all my logins. I once had to export my passwords (exporting key4 and logins.json files) and it worked, so i didn't think to much about it. So i reset the pc without cheking if the passwords actually worked (yuh, my bad). The problem is that apparently mozilla doesn't recognize the files, or something, cause when i open "Logins and passwords" it's empty. I don't know what to do, please help me.

When I created an account on the forums, I had no idea my email address was going to be used as the username... My email address contains my full name, so now my username is my full name (not so good for privacy...). Since I can't change the username, I thought I'd just delete the account, however when I try to delete it I just get

"An Error Occurred Oh, no! It looks like an unexpected error occurred. We've already notified the site administrators. Please try again now, or in a few minutes."

I've tried a few times, still no luck. Does anyone have any insight into how I can delete that account? Or can get this resolved promptly? (I'm posting from a new account I made with a different email address).

On my lap top yesterday and my desktop, Firefox has logged my off and blocked me to my New York Times subscription. Different machines, different locations, different broadband providers. Whatever I do Firefox prevents a login. I have no problems with either Edge or Chrome, but Firefox has long been my preferred browser. Now my preferred browser is preventing me from accessing a favored website. I contacted the NYT and they suggested it was Firefox problem. Help. Thank you

I have exactly the same problem found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1261967 BUT, I'm using firefox 67.0.2 on linux (opensuse leap 15.0) and I have no antivirus running. Also the workaround does not fix the problem. I tried to rename the logins.json corrupted into logins.json (I think the file is still ok, since I looked inside with a text editor (Kate) and I found all my saved "hostname"). No way to reload my saved logins into firefox. Every time I restart firefox with the correct logins.json (the old one renamed) it does not connect to sync and it told me to re-connect to sync. Then, it rename the logins.json and create another file with no saved logins. Please help Thanks

Updated Firefox to 65.0.1 yesterday now a number of websites do not work including firefox support site (Will not let me log in, had to download Opera just to post this issue.)

Examples include Facebook not loading all content or allowing me to follow links (Links do not work at all.)

Youtube can't play single videos (Again acts like link is not a link.) Playlists will somewhat work if you right click and open link in a new tab but only play about 5-10 seconds of a video before moving to a new one for another 5-10 seconds of play while also taking a lot longer than normal (more than the usual 2-3 seconds from before the upgrade) to start the next video link 10-15 seconds.

Would add info from "about:support" but it will not allow me to attach a pdf (The only way I can do that since "Automatically add" button reqires using Firefox and I can't right now(Not logging in.)

As stated before no log in ability on the support site here.

Most other sites I have tested are missing content or links randomly work or not with no real reason, at least any that I can figure some work some don't and some work some times but not others.

I have done a full un-install and re-install to see if that had any effect and it did not. Also this is the only change to my computer in a little over a month, just the update to Firefox 65.0.1.
