I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

This morning after I held down the Shift key and clicked on a link scrolling with the mouse wheel stopped working. Running Version 83.0 on Windows 10. Relaunched in safe mode, turned off hardware acceleration, did a Refresh. Mouse wheel is still not scrolling in Firefox. Works in all the other applications.

I have a new laptop (Lenovo Legion 7, Win10 install) which I've been using for about a week now. However, with watching videos (Youtube mainly) & streams (Twitch) I get stuttering video playback. The laptop has a NVidia RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics chip so I wouldn't think that is the issue. I've seen several different topics on the internet already about tweaking settings in the about:config page related to video stuttering (though most relate to clearing media.benchmark.vp9.fps and restarting FF). None of those things helped. The only thing I found was disabling hardware acceleration. If I disable that, everything is fine with both video & stream playback. I wonder if this is related to the NVidia driver, but I have the latest one installed on the system (457.51 as of writing). This issue also persisted with older drivers that came with the system.

The attached data is from when I have the hardware acceleration enabled, and thus have the stuttering video playback.

Ever since evolving past the 70's version, "Print to PDF" from Firefox has had sporadic problems. I have now three times "upgraded" to various 80's series releases and though sometimes Print to PDF works, it more often fails. Once again i have "downgraded" to a 70's release, and i do not experience flaws.

I have posted at least twice of the issue, yet no one is able, or has done anything, about it. Fine. But to keep getting that annoying "New version available" notification is as irritating as malware, especially since "upgrading" will cause the system to malfunction, and the choice to spend time by your programmers to eliminate a safe internal method to disable this is very confusing; why was the decision made to eliminate the option to turn that annoyance off, creating an annoyance when the only time one would turn upgrades off would be when there was a malfunction with a release?

I did find the external registry fix, which, compared to pre early 60's releases having the setting, was a waste of my time to find, but more importantly, added an outside element of a breach of security. I do not understand the reasoning in the development team's thought process.

A few pages have scrambled printer fonts, not all. Tried troubleshooting with Reset Firefox printer setting and Reset all Firefox printer settings not even thinking about a refresh!

How to I clear the parameters that determine how the printer fonts are controlled. Seems like something is corrupted. Does not scramble most pages. Simplify Pages prints the same page correctly. Same pages print fine in Edge. document attached on how firefox prints the page and how edge prints the same page. Can't be the printer driver.

Just purchased a Windows Surface Pro and setting it up to be the same as my Windows 10 Laptop. I have synced my Laptop which I would understand to mean that my bookmarks, ID/passwords etc are copied to a master in their cloud. Signing in to Firefox on Surface Pro and turning on sync does not give me the same setup as the PC.

1st question: How does Sync know that a device should be updated to match the cloud version, or the cloud version should be updated to match the device? If two devices are made different by daily actions, and both have sync turned on, does that make duplicates on both devices?

2nd question: I was expecting to see my pinned tabs, and my bookmark folders with contents be synced as well but not sure that is included.  ?

The top of the Firefox screen disappears including the Menu, URL and the Bookmark bars, and is covered by a white un-clickable area. If Outlook is the window below Firefox and the location where the close "X" in Firefox is clicked, Outlook will close.

The solution discovered is to reboot Windows. I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox with a new downloaded version, and running sfc /scannow, but these were not successful. A few times, the same problem was seen in Chrome and it may be a Windows issue and not a Firefox bug. The problem is typically seen once or twice a day. It is not a problem that turning off full-screen will solve.

One post with this problem was found on a search from 2017 but the thread was closed.

Any suggestions for a permanent fix would be most welcome.

I think it was update, my pc restarted. But it usually asks weird. I lost all windows and all tabs. Yet in library/history under restore windows, there is nothing! There was some json file, from which you could get tabs. I tried it last time and it didn't work. Also firefox wasn't even running at that time and previously i had all windows and tabs... Are you kidding me???

I lost like hundreds of important tabs.... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

First, when i go to youtube, and sign in, it will show in some panels to sign in, even though im signed in in the top right of youtube, and youtube doesnt fully recognize that im signed in, and because of that, i cant add videos to playlists(because youtube thinks im not signed in). However other browsers dont have this problem and they work perfectly. I have tried with all the extras unninstalled (they were blocking ads and stuff) and it still happens. Second problem is not that impactful, but sometimes when i open a new tab my monitor turns black, with a big thrust of white in the center appearing and dispearing rapidly, and monitor only comes back from black when i click away, or by waiting a considerable amount of time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, and it didnt fix any of the issues.
