Hello everyone. Like the title says I am seeing a lot of these type cookies being left over in Ccleaner after I close Firefox. (Please see attached image.) I have had as many as over 300 of these type cookies in Ccleaner so apparently Firefox is not clearing out these types of cookies when I close my browser like it is suppose to do with cookies etc. etc. Could someone shed some light on this whether this is now normal to see these type cookies for websites that I visit and why Firefox does not remove them when I close the browser and if not what can I do to remedy this. I have read that Firefox has enhanced its tracking prevention and was wondering if this could be the result.

A couple of days ago after an upgrade to the latest Firefox (in Wndows 10) my default search engine changed to DuckDuckgo. Yahoo - which had been my previous default no longer appeared in list of options for search engines in Firefox options. Looking at other posts, I deleted search.json.mozlz4 and restarted Firefox. This time my default search is Google. Yahoo is still not an option. Can anyone help me to get it back please? ( I did notice some Yahoo extensions, but these don't seem to be straight search tools but have additional 'features' like putting up photos on every new tab)

I can't figure out how to adjust the column sizes in the bookmarks library, it's frozen in place even after I've restarted my computer. I can click the top of the column to sort and I can add other columns (tags, visit count etc.), I just can't adjust the size.

Has anyone else encountered this problem and found a solution?

For some reason all my toolbar bookmarks have disappeared from the toolbar line below the search box. View Bookmarks Toolbar is checked 'Always Show'. I tried customizing and restoring defaults but still don't show, although the toolbar line disappeared and option was changed from Always Show to 'Only Show In New Tab'

I am using Private Browsing, although it does same even if I don't. So frustrating

What happened? Was a new version released 4/12/2021?

Whenever I open Firefox I'm asked to download impression.link. It's keeps popping up even though I cancel. I've tried saving it to make it go away but each new tab I open in Firefox browser I get the same all over again. Impression.link pops up and asks whether I want to save or run it. I've never had this before and it's extremely annoying as I don't know if it's a threat. Do you know what this is and how do I stop it.

I use Firefox as my defauly browser. However, today (12/04/21) in the UK, when I search on Google, the results populate on Yahoo! It's very bizarre. The same happens after highlighting, right-clicking and selecting 'search on Google'. The results are populated on Yahoo. Chrome is fine, Google works as normal. It's only Firefox. Anyone else experiencing this issue?

The websites that I use Facebook to login with won't let me login, I've tried closing and reopening the browser, refreshing the page, and deleting and signing back into the account, but nothing works. The browser Windows 7 desktop and the websites in question are Dailymotion, Viki Rakuten and We TV. I wonder if it was because I was using a Windows 7 machine, but other login sources like Google seem to work fine.

i don't know if the problem lies within firefox or not. i am able to sign into the site via chrome tho. when i try to sign into spectrum (as i have many times w/o issue) it does some blinking or flashing loading type thing and ends with this message: -- We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060 --. this is going on for 3? weeks now. i have called tech support through spectrum with no help. they could get in on their end and we changed pw's but it didn't help me. also--and i have no idea if this matters at all, but it disturbs me... the padlock right beside the address box says -verified by amazon-. why is that? at times when i have hovered that at websites, it says verified by, and the name of my security service. i can't 100% say that i have checked it when signing into spectrum tho, but still i don't understand why it would say amazon! i much prefer using firefox! but i also feel like i shouldn't have to use chrome part time to get to certain sites or do certain things. PLEASE PLEASE help me figure this out.

P.S. i am already forced to use chrome to play games on facebook for years now. except bingo blitz, which is odd to me. i can play that through firefox. sighs.

I can't remember when it started, but one day tabs on my Firefox browser suddenly started having visual issues where textures or pictures would show up as a vibrant green (more recently its begun highlighting some yellow as well). I've had similar problem in the past with videos instead, but I fixed that by updating my graphics card. This problem also affects text as well. Sometimes letters will be invisible, glitched beyond comprehension, or purple. I've tried turning off hardware acceleration, resetting Firefox to default, and completely uninstalling and reinstalling, but none of these have fixed it. I'll attach some images below. (this problem is specific to Firefox, Microsoft Edge works fine)

When I login to Hulu.com, I am returned a white page that says, "403 Forbidden nginx" And the address in the URL bar is, "https://auth.hulu.com/web/null//null/welcome". However, if I change it to http://hulu.com, I am presented with my homepage. I shouldn't have to type hulu.com into the address bar. It should take me there, automatically when I click "Log In". This is happening in Firefox on both a windows 10 machine and a Linux Mint machine. why?

The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

I updated Win 10 Pro to version 20H2 and now Firefox will not start. No error message; no appearance in Task Manager. Here's what I've tried to no avail:

1) Uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, including manually removing all remaining Firefox files (including my profile folder) after uninstall.

2) Tried to start Firefox with administrative privileges.

3) Clean booted Windows and tried to start.

4) Turned off Windows Firewall and tried to start.

5) Tried to start in Windows Safe Mode.

6) Extensive Google searches to try to find a solution.

Oddly, Microsoft Edge will not start either, but Chrome starts and works normally.

This is but one example of why I have held off as long as possible from doing major Windows updates over the decades that I've used Windows.

Suddenly a week ago or so, Disqus comment boxes no longer appear. I reported it to a website that employs Disqus for commenting. They have been investigating for a couple of weeks with no response.

There was a question asked on this forum in 2013 that describes the Subject, but nothing since. Running on Window 10 Home.

This problem does not occur on my Windows 10 machine with Edge or Chrome browsers.

Nor does it occur on Ipad or Android browsers.

Thanks!
