Hello. I am logged into Firefox on two different computers, but one account. The problem is, the password for some reason is not synced. On one, only the old password works. On another, only the updated password works. Do you know why this is? I already logged out of all devices and logged back in and it still doesn't work.

Thanks

For a long time now (at least a few months), intermittently and while browsing Google Analytics, I need to refresh every other screen because the tables on the bottom of the screen sometimes do not scroll down. Refreshing via F5 fixes this, but needs to be reinforced when the table is tweaked. It might go away if the table is completely changed by navigating to another report with another URL.

When this error happens, it feels like as soon as the page is loaded, the viewport flickers, and a second scroll bar pops up. This causes the long tables on the lower half of the screen to remain unscrollable, even though fully loaded and present.

As a curiosity, the "Take a Screenshot" option can scroll down the page (while saving a an entire page, or via the selection tool). Nohuman input can replicate this. I have tested Tab, arrows, Page Up/Down buttons, manually scrolling from either scroll bar or the mouse wheel from anywhere on the screen, search, etc.

Import Logins from a csv file

Hi,

My old install of Mint Mate 19.3 worked flawlessly until the recent FF upgrade to version 86. Then after the upgrade it would crash but only when I logged out or rebooted the OS. Hence I hadn't noticed an issue for a while. The crash happened also using firefox --safe-mode from the command line. Deleting profiles and restarting - crash. Uninstalling FF and re-installing - crash. So I bit the bullet and wiped my drive and installed Mint Mate 20.1

I imported my bookmarks and Imported my logins from a csv file and all worked until I logged out/rebooted and again FF crashed. I dug out a spare HDD and did a clean install of Mate. I didn't import logins and FF didn't crash when I logged out of Mate or rebooted. Once I imported logins from the csv file FF crashed again.

I installed Chromium and imported bookmarks and logins - it worked okay but I wanted to use FF so am at the point where I've spent a week troubleshooting this problem and have fallen behind in my workload. I just don't want to spend days installing / uninstalling etc. I could go round in circles, testing on the Live USB stick for example, I could try enabling signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled import my logins and then disable the option before closing FF and subsequently rebooting Mate and so on, but its getting tedious and for now Chromium works and I can get work done.

So, when I enable signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled and import my logins, all is well until I logout of Mate or reboot the OS. Then when I launch FF I get the Crash report. Running firefox at the command line gives this error -

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3776 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...

nothing else. Same with firefox --safe-mode

Uninstalling, deleting my profile, rebooting the OS, reinstalling FF, same error, and that's without importing my logins. It appears that once the option in about:config - signon.management.page.fileImport.enabled has been used, its causing FF to crash.

I was going to do a clean install of Mint Mate and not update FF from version 84 to version 86 and test the older version to see if its version 86 causing this, which I suspect it is, since the problem also suddenly occurred on my old Mint Mate 19.3 install after an update...

Its possible my login.csv file is an issue, so I also exported the logins from Chromium instead after importing them from a FF csv backup and then imported the Chromium login csv back into a clean FF install and it crashed again... So after going around in these circles I decided to post here and pass the buck so to speak.

Perhaps later tonight or later this week if I get the urge I will try the clean Mint Mate install, not update FF to latest version, staying at version 84 and try the same thing to see if its the firefox causing the issue.

On a side note, once in a blue moon, instead of FF giving a crash report, it would offer to boot in safe mode or perform a clean startup. This would get FF going again until I closed it and started it, when it would crash again.

Cheers and have a good day :)

"google" is the only scenario it happens to me. Why is it resolving like that?!

Hello. In any firefox windows, the glitch (see attached images) is present, Any time i mouse over an interactive elelment, all of the speckles change position, and sometimes color. they look to be very random, sometimes being absent from a large part of the page, and other times being very thick throughout it's entirety. the only way i have found fix it is by downgrading version, however i still would like to know if there is a solution for fixing this version. in chromium browser, this glitch isn't present, it also only, in the past, displayed on pdfs, and some iframes (HTML term for embedded websites in windows), but now it covers the whole page, it isn't unusable but sometimes is hard to look at. This glitch has been present for at least a week (current date is march 1st) but definitely longer. Thanks.

Of late when i select "Copy" a photo sent to me via email ,it only copies as a thumbnail not the actual photo, it used to to copy ok but not now for some reason. My workaround is to select "Copy image as" which then opens up a droplist from MyPC,give it a name and it copies ok,but its a bit long winded .

Hi, FF Community,

It seems that almost every time I change to another screen, I get the "FF is not your current browser, would you like to make FF your ...."

I suspect that Microsoft Edge s the culprit, but but what ever I try to remove Edge from my computer, nothing works.

Does anyone have a fix for this maddening problem?

Please note, that I am not a computer whiz, so esoteric terminology leaves me scratching my head with a hind foot.

I have triple checked my computer for a virus, and it is clean.

Thank you, Nick M.

Today I tried to update Firefox through the Help/About Firefox dialog. The update from 85 to 86 appeared to go fine. I got the Click to Restart Firefox and complete Update button, and the application restarted when I clicked the button. However, opening the Help/About Firefox dialog again displays the message "Firefox is being updated by another instance". It is not, so it appears that this update has not completed correctly, and, in this state, I suspect that further updates won't work either. Has anyone else seen this issue?
