Some of this will likely sound ridiculous.

Yesterday, I noticed my ad blocking wasn't working. I eventually realized Ublock had been uninstalled. I'm still dumbfounded about how this happened, I mean, you really can't do that by mistake.

Today, same thing happened with loss of ad blocking. This time, I noticed UBlock was not on my toolbar. It also did not appear in the Puzzle Piece drop down menu. It was still installed, but inoperable. I had to drag 'n drop it's .xpi onto the addon manager to revive it.

The other day , I posted about blank buttons on my toolbar. Not only blank, but not operational for whatever addon they represented. Today, after the Ublock reinstatement, once again blank button appeared.

I develop profiles in stages, like templates for further enhancements. Addons, etc. Before I did anything, I went to three of those more basic profiles, one more further developed in terms of customization, to compare with the current one.

They both not only had blank areas where before there were icons, but UBlock was uninstalled on all of them.

Have you ever seen anything like that?

I know, I know, you think I'm crazy!

BTW, I cleared the startup cache on both, as was suggested in the previous thread, and the icons returned to the toolbar, but in two of them, they are still missing in about:addons

I have just started getting Access Denied messages from my Banking account. The bank is telling me that it is due to updated security and that I should start using Chrome or Edge browsers which I do not want to do. It has something to do with the Enhanced Tracking Protection settings. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Firefox version 122.0 Mac: Sonoma 14.1.1 apple silicon

The problem emerged about a little over a year ago (around September 2022). It started with an installation of firefox on another machine running BigSur, and I guess the problem got ported when I restored a time machine backup on this current machine. I attempted to troubleshoot the issue by following mozilla support and reddit threads but to no avail. I, at the time, settled on monthly time machine backups, but now finally decided to address it properly.

Troubleshooting steps that I have followed:

  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.max_pages and places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages to 2147483647 then to 999999 after reading about how a value too high might be ignored (both values didn't seem to change anything)
  • going into the about:config page and changing the places.history.expiration.transient_optimal_database_size to 85534800
  • removing the add-on/extension manager as seeing that it might remove history for some reason (from a [thread] by IceTemple)
  • In the privacy and security tab, history is set to Firefox will use custom settings for history

Things I suspect might be the problem:

  • I originally used the Chinese version of firefox (downloaded from the .cn website) and reinstalled the international version (from .com) after getting annoyed by the built-in ads. For convenience sake, I ported the profile folder over which might have carry the problem over. That being said, I don't think this problem existed when I just started using firefox but appeared awhile later.
  • result of an update, don't know which though
  • certain extensions (I haven't went through them individually since I installed a lot)

My questions:

  1. How to stop Firefox from doing this ever again?
  2. Alternatives of storing history if nothing works
  3. Why did my troubleshooting steps not work? Is there something wrong with my version of firefox that prevented the about:config changes from working?
  4. If I have to resort to backing up the places.sqlite history file, how do I restore/reintegrate them with current history file?

English isn't my first language so I apologize for any confusion that may arise due to how I articulate. Any help is much appreciated

Before updating Firefox to 123.0.1 (64-bit) + MacOS Sonoma, I could use FIDO2 on OnlyKey and login to my proton mail. Now, however something has changed on Firefox that I get presented with two prompts to touch my usb key, but the key itself doesn't respond to the second prompt and login fails.

I first get this prompt as before. I select 'Authenticate' and would be presented with the second picture. Since my key is not expecting to be touched, nothing happens when I touch it and login fails with the message displayed in the last picture.

Hello, Firefox randomly downloaded a file, with seemingly randomly name, that is 0 bytes and in download manager the source is moz-safe-about. It happened when I was accessing a popular wiki site. I opened the file in notepad, it was empty. I put it on virus total and came back negative, as it is an empty file. I've curbed through the support tickets here, using the keyphrase 'moz-safe-about'. I understand this was/is quite a common problem, but it still makes me quite worried and left a sour taste in my mouth, as I haven't understood any of the explanations. I have enabled firefox to ask me whenever it wants to save something (I have no idea why this isnt the default state). Happened on a somewhat fresh, updated win 11 installation. I'm also attaching more information here with a picture. Long story short: should I be worried? Am I overreacting and this is just some sort of a bug that occurred while getting a sites data? Thank you for your time.

TL;DR : Disqus comments used to work while using privacy Strict mode now it doesn't.

After years of it working out of the get-go while using Strict mode up till recently (about a year ago this was really low on my priority list) refused to work I though it was my Ad blocker was causing issues but after setting it in the filters to allow and even after turning it off still no dice.

Removed all add-ons tried again still Disqus comment section refused to load in the websites I regularly visit. So after giving up, I just look around in the browser setting to see if there is anything that may cause conflict with certain scripts from running.

Hi dear Community!

As of recent, my AntiVirus software is flagging Firefox.exe (Full path: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe) as a vulnerable application. I have been using firefox for years (Because I love it, you guys are heroes) and i have been using Kaspersky for years. Firefox has only been flagged as of recent.........

I hope someone knows why, has this too or can calm my paranoia

Some Additional information:

Have you clicked any suspicious links? No i have not. The links i have visited were all https, checked and acknowledged by Kaspersky and i can say with full certainty that the sites were legit

Have i downloaded any files as of recent? Yes, but from reputable sources and always checked using Hashes and validating using KSN (Kaspersky security network).

(For the Mods, im sorry for previously posting this in the wrong forum.)

I was trying to troubleshoot a black screen of death issue with Windows10 that first started appearing after Firefox adopted the new Private Browsing icon. In the process of doing so, I tried every combination of Firefox settings imaginable. Nothing worked as far as Asus, Windows, or Firefox settings, rolling back/ updating various drivers, etc. So, I decided to refresh Firefox and when that did not work, I decided to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm not sure if that worked as far as the original black screen of death issue is concerned because now Firefox no longer remembers my cookies and site data allowed exceptions (my only exceptions were my bank websites, which worked as expected until the uninstall/reinstall). I've tried selecting always use private browsing and always delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (my previous settings), but every time I close Firefox and return those three exceptions are missing. Any ideas would be most welcome. BTW, does anyone know how to use that folder Firefox puts on the home screen labeled "Old Firefox Data" because I was expecting there to be a .exe file to click on to reload all the previous settings in one fell swoop.

Hi,

My saved passwords are not showing up. I followed the advice on this post, by setting signon.debug and doing about:logins. Here are the errors shown in the console:

LoginManager: Getting a list of all logins asynchronously. LoginManager.sys.mjs:395:14 Login storage: Returning 502 logins for specified origin with options [object Object] storage-json.sys.mjs:704:10 Login crypto: Failed to decrypt cipher text of length 92 with error NS_ERROR_FAILURE. crypto-SDR.sys.mjs:179:12

   InterpretGeneratorResume self-hosted:1465
   AsyncFunctionNext self-hosted:852

Then that last mesage is repeated another 501 times.

Any idea what is wrong. I have only one profile the default one. Firefox is up to date at 122.0.1 on iMac 12.7.3

Thank you David

I have a local only test ca and test web server. How do I load the CA certificate into Firefox. Adding it via "settings" did not work, the browser says Adding a root via "settings" does nothing. When I access a web server it says "the original certificate provided by the server is untrusted", in the issuer name field. It never actually shows the certificate. Adding a file to the appdata area (this is on windows 10) also fails; changing the enterprise ca settings does not work. This used to work.

I am able to access them through the deprecated Lockwise app I have on my phone but they won't load on my desktop browser, even after doing a sync on my Firefox profile.

I click again on the X and a message says there is a problem, try again later.
