Hello all...When I restarted my machine tonight Firefox installed a new update. now all of my pages show this (see attachment) my passwords have disappeared to be replaced by lockwise which has no passwords in it at all (I had reset that a few months ago back to the old password manager) the only pages I can see clearly are mozilla pages. all else is this gobbledy gook. help!

This was from a Windows 10 user so the path might be slightly different on yours:

Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings

That calls up the System Properties dialog

Click the Advanced tab, then the Environment Variables button

Find a variable named:

MOZ_FORCE_DISABLE_E10S

I removed it and problem solved...

Hi carrie, there is a decoding problem in Firefox 77 if you have disabled multiprocess (e10s). Is it possible you've done that?

sorry I didn't have that variable in there.....if i changed it, and i'm pretty sure i did, i'm thinking it was in about:config....

i even added in the variable, then removed it. still nothing.

thanks so much for the info so far, i do believe i disabled multi processes as it was sometimes 6 or 7 of them running at once...

In about:config, look for preference that contain remote.autostart -- are any of those set to false?

hello,

To restore this data: On the desktop you should see a folder called 'Old Firefox Data' open it and copy all the data by highlighting and selecting everything in that folder, then right click and select copy. Now open FIrefox. Head on over to about:profiles by typing it in your URL bar. Click on the Open Folder button under the Local Directory, not root. Then right click when inside the new profile folder and select paste. Then restart Firefox. You should now have all your previous bookmarks, and data back. If this solved your problem, mark as solution. On my work computer this ugly "thing" called lockwise appears instead of my saved passwords. I cannot see my saved passwords now. My home computer (with synced accounts) works fine and shows me my saved passwords. I need to make this lockwise go away and restore to where I can see my saved logons. Firefox 70.0 (64-bit). Please help. Note that for now you can revert to the legacy Password Manager by clearing the value of this pref on the about:config page. signon.management.overrideURI = <blank> You can reset this pref to revert back to Lockwise. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-config-editor-firefox

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window

You can also check the network.http.accept-encoding prefs on the about:config page and make sure they are default.
