Hi! I can save a lot of account passwords abut not all. Few are not prompting for the option. As for now I found two - https://store.steampowered.com/ and https://evenstadmusikk.no/

I am moving my data from chrome to FF Quantum because I am deleting everything from google (accounts and apps) and I did not have any problems to save them there. Here I have no luck. Just to repeat - Firefox is saving almost all of my passwords. The prompt shows and I have no issues. With these two - no prompt. I tried to edit an account I consider less important - I can't. Only username and password, not the address. I am allowing to save the data (attachment). I have no exceptions. These are no banks or such. And I have no issues to save the data on safari or chrome. How I can have them saved on Firefox when there is no possibility to add data manualy?

Firefox crashes daily in plugin container on Facebook

OK - I have searched and Googled.

This happens with FF 46 32 bit, 64 bit, portable, on Win 7 32 bit, 64 bit and windows 10. It happen in safe mode. It has all plugins up to date. I t has remove all but needed and non removable add ins - such as Flash, Acrobat Reader, etc. It happens on computers with plenty of RAM (16 GB). Oddly enough, it happens worse with safe mode and plugin container is run-a-way. With normal mode, it appears that plugin container is under control and Firefox itself runs amuck.

So - totally repeatable. Page down in Firefox with one or 50 tabs open - no matter. It will crash. Goes black, or stops responding. Until Firefox closes. NEVER happens with Edge for example.

I have to think it is a Firefox memory leak, but even using Firemin does not help much if at all.

What can be done? I have done my homework!

Problem signature:

 Problem Event Name:	APPCRASH

 Additional Information 3:	0a9e
 Additional Information 4:	0a9e372d3b4ad19135b953a78882e789

More info, of course. End of my rope on this one....

Thanks.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 48.0 on a WIN Vista PC & when looking at ads. (on Craigslist for example) QR codes (i.e. the actual squares) posted on the ads. do not appear on the page. However, if I look at the same page with IE 9, the squares are visible.

Why is this?

I have just installed the extension called "QR Secret Decoder Ring" (v. 0.7.0) thinking it might help but it's made no difference, as there is no "QR code square" shown to decode!! If the code squares are visible, I am assuming the above mentioned extension will show me what the code says. Is that correct?

A solution would be greatly appreciated, as I have already spent several hours trying to solve the problem.

Thank you.

I have an HP Pavillon, Juno email and Firefox is my default browser, At some point while accessing my email I will get the "unresponsive script" error and although it gives my options to continue, debug or close, none of it works and computer freezes. So I have to go to Task Manager and close everything down and start over. Very frustrating. It has also happened when I have been on other websites or with Internet Explorer. HP has tried fixing it, Juno has tried ....all to no avail. I've tried refresh, done many virus/malware scans, etc. It seems to me there is a plug-in or an add-in or some box somewhere not checked. Any ideas?

B"H

My Firefox crashes on a page from my personal website: http://www.doviddebresser.info/Collection.php?letter=g

These pages show a large amount of small images. The strange thing is that only the letter "g" crashes, and "g" is by far not the page with the largest amount of images (that would be "s").

Another strange thing is that Firefox crashes right away when I try to open the page, not after beginning to open the page, as usually happens when there are too many images on the page, that the crash occurs after Firefox already shows a few hundred images.

I have the latest Firefox version: 46.0.1. Windows 7 with more or less the latest updates. The problem also occurs in safe mode. The problem does not occur using Internet Explorer. I have a few add-ons, like dictionaries, but nothing special. Java is also updated. I also have the Adblock plus extension, but it is de-activated on my userpage.

Recently, I noticed that the dropdown bookmarks menu from the toolbar is acting wierd. When I point at a folder, the contents sometimes appear a little distance away from the main dropdown bookmarks. At other times, the contents cover part of the main dropdown bookmarks instead. This doesn't happen always or at the same place in the bookmarks. There is also no pattern to how, when or where it occurs in the dropdown bookmarks. It's difficult to describe, so I have attached two pictures.

I am using Firefox 46.0 on Linux Mint 64-bit.

Thanks.

Administrator on 64-bit Windows 7 Professional unable to open existing Firefox (45.0.1) or install 46.0.1 (with save or run) -- ALL ATTEMPTS produce this pop-up: "A required privilege is not held by the client."

Version 45.0.1 was working. As I usually do and have done for many versions of Firefox, I downloaded Firefox Setup Stub 46.0.1 with Save rather than Run. However, I could not run it from the download. Firefox was still working. Then I used the Update from inside Firefox (which I presume was the same download), and Firefox has not worked since. I cannot open it with the icon on my taskbar, by using the Start menu, or by clicking on firefox.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox.

I have spent HOURS searching and reading and trying possible solutions to other problems (not Firefox) where the users had that, or a similar, message. Nothing has worked.

The Securities tab of the Properties of the firefox.exe file shows three "Group or user names" -- SYSTEM, Administrators (with-my-name-here), and Users (with-my-name-again). SYSTEM and Administrators have all "Permissions for Users" allowed (except for "Special permissions" for which neither Allow nor Deny is ticked). Users has ticks to Allow only for "Read & execute" and "Read".

The Advanced Security Settings show me as Administrator as the Owner. I have "Full control" in Permissions (not inherited), and a second entry with me as Administrator also indicates "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ for this entry). The SYSTEM entry also has "Full control" (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ . The Users (with-my-name) has a "Read & execute" Permission (inherited from C:\Program Files (x86)\ .

So, I have "Full control".

What does "A required privilege is not held by the client" mean?

Who is the client?

What is the "required privilege"?

And where does one get it?

For a few days I have been receiving pop-ups about updating to a newer version of Thunderbird. Normally I would do so without hesitation (as I have done in the past with Firefox). However, I am now afraid to attempt this in case the same thing happens with Thunderbird and I can't access my emails. At least I can use another browser (as I am obviously doing to post this).

Years ago I used Netscape Navigator (preferred) and Internet Explorer. The first time I used Firefox was at an Internet café on a holiday. I had to learn to use it because it was the only browser on the machines. When I got home, I downloaded Firefox and have been using it ever since. I loved the multiple tabs (which IE did not have at the time). I have IE and Chromodo on my machine, but I only use them for sites that don't work with Firefox (fewer and fewer as the years have gone by).

Can someone help me so that I can return to Firefox? Please?

This has been going on for longer than I should have let it. For the record, I have tried going into Safe Mode but it didn't fix the issue. The crashes that I receive are random. I can be watching a video or I can just be reading something on a forum, regardless the browser crashes. I had a Java Applet plugin that was out of date so I also tried disabling that but I still had the crashes. Any help would be greatly appreciated, here are a couple of my crash reports.

Got a brand new MSI laptop and ever since installing Firefox the look of the web page crashes some elements (look white) if the program has been minimized and then opened up again. Usually, when moving the mouse over it pops back again. But it is annoying and I'm thinking of switching to another browser instead. Latest nVidia driver.

I've cleared cache, cookies, reset Firefox, run in safe mode. Checked cookies are enabled for ebay. I've manually disabled all extensions and plug ins. Run Malwarebytes and antivirus. I've even tried another browser and the same thing happens. I'm not sure what else to try as it doesn't seem to be a Firefox issue if my other browser has the same issue. Any advice appreciated.

It works fine for maybe 2 hours and then it stops loading any website. My other browsers still work. I have to force quit Firefox to get it to load pages again. It stops responding when I just quit the app so I have to force quit it. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps: Changing proxy, enabling/disabling firewall etc. but none of it seem to work. It's really annoying at this point! Any help?

I have Firefox 44.0.2 but this problem has been going on even on previous versions. If I click on the star it goes through the motions of placing a bookmark. I even see this animation of a star moving to the list of bookmarks. But when I go into the bookmarks they are not listed. I have tried right clicking on the page and clicking the star and I have tried it form the tool bar. Neither works. I have also renamed the places.sqlite to places.sqlite.old and that doesn't seem to do a thing.

I keep Firefox up to date, and have 44 installed. For the first time, Adobe's Primetime CDM will not install or load, although my add-ons page keeps telling me it will be installed shortly. The Mozilla support pages tell me how to disable it; but what can I do to make it work?

(While Firefox DRM viewing is not available to me, I use Chrome with no problem whatever; but I'd rather Firefox were my default browser.)
