I think I may be set to private browsing, because websites aren't remembering my computer, and I have to have codes texted every time I try to log in. Cookies are on, but it's still happening, and it's maddening, as I'm a freelance bookkeeper and have to be able to login to multiple sites, and have to coordinate with the client every time I'm forced to get a new code.

Please help, this is negatively impacting my work.

Hello, When i reduce firefox to icon and then i re-open it , firefox windows glithces a bit on top of my applkication bar. I tried reistalling, changing theme but did not work. I posted also an image of the problem. The problem is temporarily fixable by clicking the application bar and then reclicking firefox. Is there chance to have a permanent solution to this? It's super annoying!

Hi all,

first I'd like to mention that I've read many other threads related to this problem, and I now have a good understand of what exactly happened. I hope this will help resolve the issue.

I was trying to join a Zoom meeting, something happened as I was following a link which triggered an old version of Firefox to start, which I didn't even know existed on my PC (FF 30-something). I have the latest FF 81

So that old FF caused my primary FF to close. After I closed that old one and reopened the primary browser, all my browsing history was gone. That's about 5 years of history. Plus all favicons. However bookmarks were intact, as well as addons. But I was logged out of all websites I normally use, although I could see all cookies are still there.

When I checked the places.sqlite file in my profile folder, its size was 5MB, and so was the size of the favicons.sqlite file. I have backups of these files from a year ago, and their sizes are 78MB and 53MB respectively, so I knew something had caused my original files to be deleted or reset.

Now my question is simply: how can I restore the places and favicons (this one's not important) files that were apparently deleted/replaced?

I'll be very thankful for any tip

Note: there is a places.sqlite.corrupt file which size is 10MB, so it definitely isn't the original one

At first I thought it was an issue with "The New Facebook," since that appeared at the same time as the 81 update. But it's not. In fact, it happened on THIS page just now. Right after I typed "The New Facebook," all the text disappeared. Cursor stayed in the same spot. When I continued typing, the old text reappeared. On other pages, large black or white areas appear, seemingly at random. You can get rid of them by pulling the drawbar up or down.

I first noticed it when scrolling through photos on Facebook. In the first screenshot (attached) you can see the photo I was navigating AWAY from, with two small rectangles containing portions of the photo I was navigating TO. And the right-hand panel (with the text and description) is all from the photo I was navigating TO.

The second screenshot shows a typical Facebook page (or, what's SUPPOSED to be one) right after I typed a comment.

This problem does NOT show up on the new version of Microsoft Edge. (Not sure about the old Edge, I don't have it.)


My cache is empty, I'm on Windows 10 1909, all drivers are updated.

I just noticed a weird problem. First, I had my browser set to tell me about updates but let me decide. However, today when I went to my credit card account, the page would not display properly. In checking the situation I found that I had Firefox 81.0 installed. However, I keep a record of all updates, and the last one I made manually was to 78.0.2 on 7/9/2020. Somehow the setting to do updates automatically was changed. Apparently, I was updated to 81.0 and perhaps other versions without my knowledge. So I don't know when this last update was made.

The problem occurs when I go to chase.com to enter my account. The basic Chase page shows fine. However, when I enter my login credentials, it takes me to a page where I see only a white screen with a blue bar. (see image attached) The rest of the information on that page is missing. I tried disabling all my plugins, and it makes no difference. I called Chase support, and they said they have no known issues on their site. I tried uninstalling 81.0 and reinstalling 78.0.2. However, when I started it, it reported that the profile format had changed, so I could not use that old version without starting over. My profile must have been updated with one of the background updates. I upgraded again to 81.0. All the other financial sites I have tried, and every other website so far, works fine. There seems to be something about the Chase account pages and Firefox 81.0. I know that I accessed these pages over the weekend with no problem, so the update must have occurred after that. The site works fine in Chrome, but I prefer Firefox.

I am concerned both about the automatic updating without my permission, and the seeming display problem with the chase pages and Firefox 81.0. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

first: thank you that there is no german support.

firefox seems no longer to be able to download complete websites: "download < fehlgeschlagen> = failed"

sometimes, "retry" button seems to work, but most of css is missing then when loaded offline.

ms edge is able to download complete websites, and they can offline be loaded with firefox completely and correctly then.

sometimes, "retry" seems to work in firefox, but most of css is missing then.

Hi, I updated Mozilla Firefox to version 81.0 (64 bit) three days ago. I noticed that the functionality of search in the page (Ctrl+F) doesn't work properly. For example, I try to search a word, using the search bar, and the browser doesn't find anything. Mozilla doesn't highlight anything. Why? However, after I close the browser and open it again, the function of search works. I refreshed Mozilla twice and reinstalled, but the problem persists. Can you help me? Thanks.
