Every time I try to open firefox, it instantly crashes. it pops up in task manager but only for a split second (although if my computer has just started up firefox will open for maybe 10 seconds). this is getting really frustrating. No crash errors or reports. I've tried it in safe mode, reinstalling, made sure I have none of the software on my computer which prevents Firefox from opening. Any help will be appreciated :)

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

Whenever I open Firefox I'm asked to download impression.link. It's keeps popping up even though I cancel. I've tried saving it to make it go away but each new tab I open in Firefox browser I get the same all over again. Impression.link pops up and asks whether I want to save or run it. I've never had this before and it's extremely annoying as I don't know if it's a threat. Do you know what this is and how do I stop it.

Hi All

So recently I had some windows issues on my newer laptop and had to resort to going back to my old laptop for the time being. Before using it I restored the system to factory settings and such then reinstalled the newest versions of firefox and such then imported my profiles that I backed up from the new system.

Was working fine for few weeks but the last week or so I have noticed firefox has become sluggish in how it loads websites and such.

I have tried setting up a test profile and that new profile was reacting the same way very sluggish in loading pages.

I have also cleared my browsers cache wondering if that would help.

I have also tested loading pages in Microsoft Edge to see if it was browser or system related and Edge seems to be loading pages just fine so it has to be browser specific.

Any ideas what I should try next to clear this up as the sluggishness is getting old fast!

Thanks

Hello,

I was a little surprised to see that my current computer hasn't reflected the updated bookmarks which I bookmarked on my other computer with being logged into my account as well which I thought would be the case after syncing Firefox on my current computer. I'm not too sure of how to get around this since I checked Firefox on my laptop which I used recently and had the recent bookmarks listed but not on my other computer where I'm on now. Hope you can help me figure out how to get around this outside of trying to sync my information which I haven't had much luck with. Thank you.

'bold text'Problem with appearance of aplusnet email on my iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.2.3.

For no apparent reason, everything in the Firefox window displaying this email application appears about one-fifth or less of normal size. (See attached screen shot.) Everything, meaning text fonts, graphics, etc. No other Firefox window or tab similarly affected. I tried restarting the application. And then restarting the computer, then Firefox, then the aplusnet email. No soap. Not responsive to changing the font size.

No idea how this happened, but it’s rendered the email unreadable on Firefox. I'm running Firefox Browser 87.0. Thanks very much for your help.

With every update, Firefox becomes more and more unusable. It's been 20 minutes so far on this morning's session, but the tab won't open. And Options won't let me clear data as those tabs are dark. It's hard to be nice when I read these same complaints in forums all over the internet. It's only getting worse, and the recommendations are always the same -- clear your cache, remove extensions, blah, blah, blah. No, nothing works! It's time to blow it up and start over. Not to mention that it's always crashing or not responding. It's just about as useless as Edge and Chrome. What a pity. (Oh, I just noticed -- 27 minutes later -- that the Clear Cache tab is now active. Better late than never, I suppose.)

Dear all,

I am planning a move towards the Firefox ESR 78.6.x. Currently my customer is using the Firefox Rapid Release 84.x and need your help with the profile migration. The customer has a very isolated on-premises environment and does not allow the users to login into a Firefox-Account. Therefore the settings for Cookies, Cache, History and especially Bookmarks are not synched.

Environment details:

  • Enterprise environment with several tausends of clients
  • All clients on Windows 10 Enterprise between 1809 and 20H2
  • All clients have always the newest Firefox installed currently 84.x

This creates a huge challenge to sync this stuff. Therefore I have now identified the following two options:

  1. 1 Allow the downgrade by using the environment variable MOZ_ALLOW_DOWNGRADE on Windows. For this option I am trying to find the real reason why this "Downgrade-Stop" has been implemented in the first place? What risks in detail do I take to allow this downgrade? Has anybody done this before and do you mind to share your experience here? How many issues did you face and how did you remediate the issues?
  1. 2 Hand over the migration to the users. Copy their current profile to their desktop and ask them to import their bookmarks manually. Not preferred by users and I can't even blame them for.

Is there any other way to automatically sync the profiles from 84.x to ESR 78.6.x without user interaction?

Thanks in advance Amir

I am very challenged by the new print dialog box on Firefox. My biggest problem is that I can no longer find a way to simplify the page, an option I used frequently to save paper and ink. Also, printing in draft requires multiple steps and looks like it might not be an option in the future.

Has anyone figured out a way to get around these issues, especially to simplify the page?

The old print dialog worked really well for me; this new one, not so much!

I use firefox bookmarks to store my biomedical research data which over the last 12 years has grown to a large size with places.sqlite around 60 Mb and bookmarks.html about 75 Mb.

Sometime ago the bookmarks.html file suddenly almost doubled in size to some 130 Mb (I automatically back up/export my bookmarks as a bookmarks.html file) and places.sqlite to some 70 Mb. Unfortunately I only discovered the issue sometime after it happened.

According to Places Maintenance, which I run relatively frequently, the bookmarks data base comprises:

Table moz_places has 77666 records Table moz_bookmarks has 230886 records

The bloated bookmarks.html file is needlessly taking up a lot of backup space . I can only assume that somehow one of the very large files was inadvertently copied into some other folder. Given the vast number of folders/subfolders it is a virtually impossible task to open each one to find where such a large file has been put to cause such bloat. Unfortunately when I open the bookmarks.html file there is no folder structure visible so it is not possible to sort folders by size which would greatly help to find the offending folder.

Although I am quite useful at finding my way around browser technology I have no sqlite database skill. I have looked at the places.sqlite using DB Bowser for Sqlite and SqliteManager extension in the hope that I could figure out whether it is possible to identify folders and hopefully sort them by size to find where the misplaced large folder is located. But no luck it is all greek to me.

I would be most grateful if anyone can offer suggestions/guidance on any possible way to identify folders and to sort them by size from places.sqlite or any other way (I have considered exporting the bookmarks from places.sqlite to xlsl into Excel but it does not seem to offer any way to search for/sort folders by size.

I am on Win10 Pro.
