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.

I am using FF 67.0.1 x64 on Windows 10 1903 x64, both are fresh installs. When I visit the accounts.firefox page it displays stretched to full width. I restarted with add-ons disabled, but it still displayed the same. If I remember correctly, it looked normal in "safe-mode".

Anyone else experience this and have an idea as to why all of a sudden this is happening?

As above. FF installed the update despite the checked option to NOT install automatically. NO "old firefox" folder was created-anywhere. No other profile is present that has the old data. My adult daughter's grad school laptop. Years of bookmarks, logins and I do not know what all ARE GONE!! I allowed FF to download but NOT INSTALL-since it was not my machine and I wanted to avert any disaster (I, in fact, looked at the options first, to make sure) NOW WHAT?? Is that is a bug?? Why was there no "old FF" created? Why did it install regardless of instructions to the contrary. Is there some other place to look? She does not seem to have any automatic backups for FF profiles.

Hello Firefox Support Team,

Due to the fact, it's very annoying what has happened with my Firefox, I really need your help and assistance. My problem with Firefox web browser is very simple.

Almost anytime, when I am typing any letter in Google search bar or when I am typing any initial letter in Firefox url link, so for instance "Y" to get into YouTube directly, Firefox always starts to flicker, tremple or how to call it.

Below is my shared video, what I mean and how it looks like, hopefully you would be able to see it:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1k5zy-63I1wWNfWKXhedCXOIVKSLa4jVG/view?usp=sharing

I did the Firefox hard reset yesterday but it didn't work at all. I have disabled the HW acceleration in Firefox as I've searched already in web but it didn't help neither.

I have the latest Firefox version installed 67.0.2

Please help me because I love Firefox but this is so so annoying..

Hello,

since the update to 67.0b10 (maybe a bit before) I can't watch streamed videos via arte.tv. I downloaded and tried v60.6.1esr, but also here it is not possible. The video page is shown, also the start button, but I can't start it. It's possible on MS edge, but I try to avoid using it What's the trick to watch again?

Thanks, Harald

When accessing:

https://www.particulares.santandertotta.pt/pagina/indice/0,,276_1_2,00.html

Firefox gets extremely slow.

I tried restarting with all plugins/addons disabled and the behavior is the same.

I looked at Firefox's task manager and it indicates no problems at all with this tab.

Chromium has no problem with this site.

What could be wrong with Firefox?

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?

I have a WordPress Classifieds website, and users are unable to access sub categories for listing or placing adverts? This has happened in the recent past and then it corrected itself, and now it is happening again. We have done all the checks on the site to make sure it isn't the site, and have used other browsers - Chrome and Edge, to do the post adverts and we have not had any problems with those browsers.

We have also uninstalled the Firefox Browser from my pc, shut it down rebooted,and reinstalled the Firefox browser from the website, and the same issue happens. We have tried on another pc, with the same browser already installed, and with three of the users for my site, all using Firefox browser, and each of them have the same issue - they cannot post ads in the category selected as the sub category will not display. Have also notice in the menu bar, that there is something about content blocking?? But I cannot figure out what that means or why it would cause the issue we are having.

Can anyone assist with getting this sorted out please.

We have also noticed another problem with the browser. When you go to "options' there is a message displayed on the top of the page next to a search box, that says - "your organisation has disabled the ability to change some options" Have redownloaded as suggested, but it is still showing.

Have included screenshot of what is happening from the site using Firefox browser and it shows just the main category, so maybe that might assist in explaining the issue we are having with this browser?

Thanks all, hoping to get this issue sorted pretty quickly if possible. Cheers bcdoorz

Using Ubuntu 18.04, 4.15.0-33-generic GNU/Linux, and Mozilla Firefox 67.0. Other browsers work fine, so it is not an internet connectivity issue. Firefox uses no proxy, and has IPv6 disabled. It cannot open a local server like 192.168.1.4, so it is not a DNS resolution issue. If I run it from CLI, I get the following:

Sandbox: seccomp sandbox violation: pid 25975, tid 25983, syscall 53, args 1 1 0 139885284952128 0 139884708835328. [Child 25975, Socket Thread] WARNING: Unable to create pipe named "25975.45.480528193" in server mode error(Function not implemented).: file /build/firefox-xkwMhH/firefox-67.0+build2/ipc/chromium/src/chrome/common/ipc_channel_posix.cc, line 210

Happens after a recent update, so may go back to earlier version.

Dear All. In the morning, I can't construct coherent sentences until I've had a coffee and completed the following crossword https://puzzles.independent.co.uk/games/concise-crossword-independent/#!201905 Under the title "The Independent's Concise Crossword" a fill-in-able crossword used to load. But after updating to FF67.0 from FF66.xx, nothing. Just a blank space. The crossword works fine using Safari... but I don't like Safari. I've tried disabling my extensions in FF. But still no crossword. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

So, for the past couple of weeks, after every 3-4 days, I go to open Firefox, and all my add-ons and settings keep getting reset.

It's a weird thing. I have my add-ons, my customized settings, and everything is working fine. But after a couple of days, I open up firefox and it's like I'm starting from 0.

I mean, my history, bookmarks, passwords, all remain intact.

But everything else is gone. All my extensions open up a tab saying "now installed!" or something along those lines - plus a tab from Mozilla, today about the privacy notice.

My homepage, search and download settings are back to the defaults.

I have tried to refresh my browser, reinstalled my extensions, but still the same issue.

Help?
