HI. Firefox has been regularly crashing over the last month or two. Today it's crashed 4-5 times in 10 minutes. I tried sfc /scannow just now and there were no integrity violations. I've always submitted the crash report immediately after each event, however the last few were unsubmitted when I checked the log just now, so I've submitted them too. Firefox has always been updated to the latest version. Any ideas? Cheers Ian

hi all i'm having a problem with firefox browser, its not keeping my website logged in. This does not occur after i close my browser but after a few hours of log in, even if i leave the browser opened and come again back later.

I've been using firefox for ages now and never really had this issue. It has only starting happening only recently, since early this week or last week the most.

I've also manually cleared all cookies/log in etc and updated firefox to the latest version maybe it helps, but nothing changed.

Please note that I do not clear history/active log in etc neither it is set up to do it automatically when i close browser also i do not have any 3rd party apps that forbid cookies. I had a firefox addon before but disabled it maybe it was interfering, but it still didnt resolve the problem.

any help much appreciated as it is getting quite irritating. Thanks in advance Lee

FF autoupdates, Win7 not applying updates, prefer not using Win10.

i am over the hill and picking up speed, but need hand-holding at this point. moz help has helped before with good results. thanks for the life-preserver! elise bowen, cape cod

I am writing second time because something bugged and 10 mins of my text is gone...

Is there a way to stop video on page faster than rmb on every video and then controls and then when play/pause button is visible with other info like video lenght lmb on video to pause it? Like forcing browser to show video controls like this on every video on a page would be really nice because i often show controls to check how long video will be. Shouldn't it be like on youtube where you can see video controls just by moving your mouse over it and it auto dissaper after you stop moving it? Also there is really annoying bug or something, sometimes videos won't auto pause when i scroll down, and on pages with infinite stuff like 9gag it is really troublesome, you have to rmb then controls then lmb to stop it. Prevent videos from auto playing setting isn't working at all.

Now that i have v. 81.0.2 64-Bit, the first time I opened it today i saw one of those yellow bars at the top that said that there was a script on the page. Since my email program SeaMonkey was opened too, that seemed to run busy as well as Firefox. When am I going to be able to open these programs without this business of scripts running. Neither program pays any attention to the option to stop scripts.

Проблема с поддержкой сертификатов безопасности возникала и ранее: Firefox не корректно подбирает сертификат для соответсвующих защищенных сайтов в автоматическом режиме. В последнее время использовали ручной выбор сертификата, т.к. зачастую Firefox подставляет первый из импортированных сертификатов. Теперь в версии 81.0.2 и ручной выбор не работает. Был момент, когда Firefox выдал окно с запросом сертификата, но был выбран "не тот", который нужно. При повторных запусках - данное окно более не появлялось (почему?). В настройках безопасности - Сертификаты - установлен режим "Спрашивать каждый раз" но окна с выбором сертификата не появляется. Firefox отправляет первый попавшийся сертификат, сервер его не принимает, возникает ошибка защиты. При этом те же самые сертификаты работают без проблем с теми же страницами в Gogle Chrome и Opera как в автоматическом, так и в ручном режиме, и подставляются корректно.

Hello,

I can't order the add-on icons on the toolbar.

1) I have more add-ons than I can fit on the toolbar, and 2) the overflow menu does not display all the icons for all the add-ons that I have installed.

So, in the toolbar customization menu, I can not place the icons where I want them on the toolbar because I can't drag them there when they are not shown. See the picture I took of the screen. The first picture shows the customization menu. The overflow menu is visible, but does not show all the icons that should be there (see the second picture). The second picture from the normal screen (not the toolbar customization screen) and shows the all the icons of all the add-ons I have installed that appear when I click on "More tools" in the top right hand part of the screen. Part of the icons is on the toolbar, part is in the overflow menu.

So, the problem is that I can't re-order the icons by dragging them from the overflow menu to the place on the toolbar where I would like them to be (e.g. to group related add-ons).

Is this an error made by me or an error in the program.

If possible, I would like to have all my icons visible, not partially hidden away in the overflow menu. Is it possible to have two or more rows of icons visible?

Please, help. Thank you.

WHAT HAPPENED: 1. I signed out of Mozilla on the owners laptop and entered my own account information 2. As I signed out of my account, I checked the box "delete data from this device", so that my data would not be saved. 3. The owner entered their account email but Mozilla did not find it so the user created a new account using the same email address as prior.

THE PROBLEM: all data is missing including bookmarks, passwords, etc. It appears Mozilla sees the account as new. Even when the user logs into a site they frequent regularly, the site does not recognize the user and requires login and password and verification of the user. Seemingly like the device is registering as new to the site.

STEPS TAKEN TO RESOLVE - UNSUCCESSFUL 1. I used the restore bookmarks option to restore to a previous copy

    A. according to the user, the restored bookmarks are not current

2. I verified that there is only one profile for the user 3. I verified that the profile has data in the local drive and the profile default is set to read the profile on the local drive

NEED HELP: 1. Restore the account completely so that all sites recognize the device and all bookmarks are restored

Thank you for your time and help to resolve this situation! Dawn

This question was already asked [this thread] but the solution doesn't work for me.

In about:config, no matter what value I give to permissions.default.shortcuts, sites are still able to intercept my keyboard shortcuts (eg Ctrl+f).

I can disable it for individual sites, using Page Info > Permissions, but I'd like this turned off across the board because I find it creepy when sites mess with my controls.

Whenever I save a webpage, it says failed in the Download history. The page actually does save but shows it as failed. If I double-click on the "failed" page in the Download history, the download history says that it saved, but if I open the re-saved page the re-saved webpage many times looks like a non-html page or simply only saves part of the page. This is puzzling in that if I ignore the false message that the page failed to save and open the page from my download folder, all looks fine. Please help, Thanks, pianotech
