After installing v65, when I go to the addons menu, no items are showing. Evidence exist they are there 1/ I have addons working quite well with this version, I tried a new theme which after a few re-starts, eventually took hold 2/ when I do open add ons menu, there is evidence that there is a list there, but they are only place holders. My mouse shows a blue line around the entire field, but absolutely nothing inside... like a white out. So I can't uninstall themes, even though I have installed a trial one... nothing at all appears. HELP!

I'm running into a frequent problem. After using firefox for an amount of time, my bookmarks and history become "frozen".

The bookmark become kind of "read-only", I can't add, remove, or move any bookmarks at all.

As for history, pressing Ctrl-H still shows the links I visited, but all sites I visited after firefox "freezing" disappears once I restart the browser. All visited links don't change color to deep blue either.

As a result, I need to restart Firefox frequently. What is going on?

Since the last update to Firefox 65, it won't launch on my Windows 7 64 bit. It shows in the running process. I've gone through all the forums and helps. I've checked compatibility, cleared out my allowable programs and re-entered, checked my Windows defender, plus everything else I could find. It would not open in safe mode although I tried something once (no idea what) and it did open briefly to save my bookmarks but then I couldn't get out or back in. I'm at a loss what to do at this point and I really like Firefox. I'm not savvy with computers but I know some and can follow directions. Firefox worked fine until the update and nothing has changed on my computer since that point except downloading Chrome to have a browser.

After installing the update for Firefox, my ability to control my windows appears to have broken. I can't manually resize them nor can I do it the quick way by pulling them into corners or against the top of my screen. There appears to be a strange white frame around my browser when I hit the maximize window button, which also forces it into full screen. When in the size it boots up in (the size it had been pre-update), it appears to have something like another, retro window open behind and attached to it. Nothing else seems to be broken thus far, but there was some trouble trying to add photos to this post to give a visual of the problem.

I've never had a problem with Firefox or an update of it before in my life, and I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just got a refurbished PC and since the beginning, Firefox (and Chrome as well) have been crashing every 30 min or so on all kinds of websites even when minimized with nothing running in the foreground.

Things I've tried - firefox safe mode - fresh, clean install of my NVIDIA graphics driver - updated my Realtek audio driver - disable hardware acceleration

Here are some of the recent crashes

Firefox loses the "Location" data from "Properties" of bookmarks.

I start Firefox and click a link on the Bookmark toolbar and it may work fine; if I restart Firefox that same link may not work; on checking "Properties" for that bookmark I find the "Location" now reads "about:blank".

If I restart Firefox again that link may now work (with the correct address now back again in the "Location" box) but another link could now be set to "about:blank". And so it goes on.

I have reinstalled Firefox three times and I have created a new profile with none of my bookmarks installed, and the problem still occurs.

I should greatly appreciate some help with this, as it making Firefox unusable.

When I'm using Firefox, on reputable sites, this screen pops up, along with a bunch of beeps. It appears to be from Firefox, but I assume it isn't. Where is coming from? Is is dangerous? How do I get rid of it?

I called Apple support, and they helped me run a scan with MalwareBytes (the scan came up clean), but the problem is still recurring. The Apple support person said to contact Firefox.

Hello! (FF 65.0.1) I recently tried to access the preferences page but I get an error of "Unresponsive Script" on "resource://gre/modules/Localization.jsm:444"

Starting in Safe Mode solved the issue so I opened FF again and disabled all extensions but not luck. So I tried disabling Hebrew (using Hebrew on my FF) on the languages tab and it solved the issue.

What can I do to keep using Hebrew and to be able to access the preferences?

Thanks!

Hello. I had naively let my computer do an upgrade of Mozilla. Guess what. All data gone. History, bookmarks, add-ons. I didn't have a back-up of bookmarks, well, at least not recent.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

I been having problems with Firefox ever since I refreshed 65.0.1 losing 6 years of bookmarks, addons and passwords, after 7 hours and I managed to get old files back and had to redo addons and passwords. It became unreliable with copying/paste not working, slowness etc and when I found that it was not updating to latest 65.0.2 I scrapped it and downloaded latest. But cannot get old version of profile back. Instead I have no files showing up in local directory, though root directory is showing *see screenshot. So I have to restart everything from scratch with important passwords and bookmarks etc. It still will not show but closing down firefox it does save and keep customised setup and session etc. Is this normal to vanish on this version?

Please allow users to disable the toggle Bookmarks Toolbar when using keyboard shortcut Ctrl+b.

Hello!

I use FF 65.0 / 64 bit Windows 10 Pro N / 1809 / Built 17763.292 Nvidia driver 418.81

In this version of windows, but also in the last one, FF causes Windows blue screens (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED). It happens after some time working with the browser, especially when many tabs are open and videos are played. But not always - I cannot reproduce it. I just know it always happens when I browse in FF.

I have uploaded the corresponding MiniDump file on my cloud storage: https://box.medunigraz.at/s/ccJj8qbC9mESAjL

I also include my DxDiag file, so you can see what I have installed.

Thanks for any help, best wishes, Herwig

It takes 2, 3, sometimes 4 times to click in an input text box to type. Restarted to safe mode didn't work. I tried in normal mode with all extensions and add-ons disabled or off. Changed theme to normal. Disabled hardware acceleration. Uninstalled/reinstalled FF. None were successful. It works in Chrome and IE. I look at my keyboard to type cos I'm retarded. So when I click once and the page animates like it wants to select but it doesn't, I usually have typed an invisible paragraph before I realize I have been duped. It is not a huge thing, just annoying.
