As I am on the computer all day, I find it helpful to get around slow page loads and stuck videos by clearing my Browser Cache frequently. As many as 20 times daily.

I have to do these exact steps: 1) Click on Tools>Options>Privacy & Security. 2) Scroll down, wait while cache data is gathered before the Clear Data option becomes active 3) Click on Clear Data 4) Uncheck the Clear Cookies box 5) Click Clear.

I do understand that by using the right settings, I could have Firefox clear the cache automatically, but that would just mean frequently closing Firefox and opening it right back up, losing all my open tabs in the process, so that option really doesn't work for me.

It would be really nice if Firefox could just put a button to Clear Cache (and only the cache, not the cookies) right on the Menu Bar. It would be one quick click and done!

Am I missing something - is there a way to customize my menu bar to do this, or is this something Mozilla is looking into?

When I open Google Translate, large grey text labels appear next to the icons, obscuring what's beneath. For example beside the double arrow icon it says "swap_horiz," which covers up some of the menu items. I think this is a Firefox, and not a Google, problem because this happens only on my desktop (Win 10) and not on my laptop (also Win 10). It also doesn't happen on any other site. I'm sure some switch somewhere got thrown accidentally. Has anyone had this problem?

I recently installed an SSD with a new install of Windows and Firefox. I still have the old hard drive with Windows and Firefox installed on it in the same computer. I am trying to transfer the data (like passwords, bookmarks and other stuff like that) from the old versions to the new versions, but am having troubles finding how.

How do I get the new Firefox to look at the old hard drive to find the data?

I have noticed in Firefox 86.0.1 64 bit that in the past few days the search results screen has been shifting to the right and not centered. I have noticed this as well on my wife's laptop. I have refreshed Firefox on my HP desktop and her HP laptop and it still happens intermittently. When it does this the only way to correct this is to restart Firefox. We both have Windows 10 Home Version 20H2 Installed on ‎2/‎24/‎2021 OS build 19042.868. I was wondering if this is a known bug and if anyone else is seeing this.

Thank you

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

FIREFOX even in safe mode failing to allow login to Spectrum.net. EDGE and OPERA do allow, problem began approximately 3-14-2021. The login process ends up with a message "We're sorry, something has gone wrong. Please try again." LASTPASS is NOT the cause.

Thanks Fred, but none of the suggestions helped, and most of them did not apply. The site does load, but the verification process acts differently now than it previously did (and still does with the other browsers). There are now several "redirecting to" messages displayed that did not happen prior to this. Also, in FIREFOX I used the username/password reset option, after/during which the login succeeded. NOTE that the problem is a LOGIN problem and not a connection problem. Nothing else in my computer has changed; same security software running as it was before Firefox started this failure. I don't think any updates to any of those happened at the time of failure. There was a major WIN-10 update, and I did experience some problems as a result, and I do not recall if Firefox started to fail at that time. I don't think the update was connected, but not sure. Everything else still works normal (and well) in Firefox.

Здравствуйте. Прошу прощения, на английском языке я не умеюб разговаривать, а писать с помощью переводчика, тогда вы вовсе не сможете понять о чем я говорю. Прошу помощи, у Вас, в браузере. Собственно ОС: Windows 7 Ultimate x64 Версия Firefox: 86.0.1 x64

Проблема состоит в том, что браузер перестал воспроизводить любые звуки с любых страниц. При этом, в микшере громкости всё включено, в т.ч. сам браузер. Переустанавливать браузер пробовал, проблема не решилась.

Обращаю внимание на то, что драйвера все стоят, звук есть везде, кроме Firefox.

В чём проблема и как её решить? Заранее спасибо. С уважением, Cobretti Ford

Hi! I have 2 apple computers running high sierra with updated versions of Firefox. The "laptop" has all my current work on it in Firefox using 7 browser windows with 60 tabs open. How do I get all that to open on the other computer "desktop?" On the desktop, the Firefox "synced tabs" sidebar is open and showing all the laptop open tabs...

I am logged into the same Firefox account on both computers which have different names in my Firefox account.

Locked Account

I have a long-standing Firefox account under a primary email ("email1") with a secondary email (email2). I've gotten locked out. Firefox won't let me sign in under email2; it requires email1 for sign in.

For email1, I know the password but have set up two-factor authentication. I have my authentication device and authenticator app. But, perversely, there is no app entry for Firefox. I have Microsoft's app but I have used it only for Microsoft-related sites.

How the Devil I could have enabled 2-factor authentication but lost the Firefox entry for it in the app, I neither know nor understand.

I have access to both email1 and email2. I know all the answers to every secret question I've ever answered. I know everything about me there is to know. I am me after al.

Is there any information, any combination of facts, that might satisfy Firefox that I own my account and let me turnoff 2-factor authentication?

For example, I have both Chrome and Safari accounts set up with the same username and emails, and have access to them. My user name is absolutely unique across the internet. I guarantee that no one other than me has ever used it or could ever duplicate the scheme I used to create it. I have so many accounts set up under that username that it must be patently apparent that the one at Firefox in that username is mine. Perhaps that would satisfy Firefox that I own the same-configured account at Firefox.

Can I get the attention of a live person at Firefox, one that can reason independently, one that can recognize the obvious and certain fact that the account belongs to me?

What can i do? Please don't tell me nothing. I don't care about losing the data. I just want my email addresses freed up so I can open another account.

Spectrum.net has changed their login page as of March 17, 2021. I am unable to login under Firefox and get Spectrum error 'IDID-1060'. I tried Edge and Chrome browsers with no problems. I contacted Spectrum and they say it's a Firefox issue. I've tried removing extensions, clearing caches, starting in Firefox 'safe mode', disable VPN but nothing works! I would prefer NOT to reset Firefox as I don't want to lose my changes. I'm on version Firefox 86.0.1 and Windows 10 20H2. Does anyone else have this problem or can suggest other troubleshooting ideas?

Hello, Is there a way to use a different theme on one machine (light) and use the dark theme on a different computer but still be able to sync the data?

I have tried this from a previous question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818

Set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to False, but this does not work.

Did it on both macOS machines, closed and restarted the browser, and changing the theme on one browser ends up changing the theme on the other machine.

Is there any way to have to separate themes on two different machines?

Thank you!
