When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "we need to restart to finish updating" <- this last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

When I try to print from one website only (www.si.com), I get a phantom page at the top overlaying part of the web page I want to print. It is there on every printed page of that website only. It does not happen on chrome, nor on any other website with Firefox. See attached example. I am running Windows 7 64 bit professional and FIrefox 84.0.2

I refreshed Firefox today on Firefoxes recommendation and now all my bookmarks are gone. I added the bookmark toolbar to try re-add my bookmarks, but nothing sticks. There is a sentence on the bookmark line saying it would be easier for me if I put bookmarks on the line and a link to manage bookmarks. Nothing sticks to the bookmark toolbar and nothing happens when I click the link. Other than switching to a new browser, which I am now seriously considering, how can I fix this? It took me a long time to get many of the important bookmarks in the folder

Firefox does not update a site's Favicon in history or bookmarks after the site has changed its icon

This is a bug report, not a question. When I access a web site for the first time, Firefox (version 84.0.2 [64-bit] under Windows 10) displays that site's Favicon in Firefox's search history. If the site then changes its Favicon, Firefox does not update its own copy of the site's Favicon and continues displaying the old one. I had a site like this in my search history but I had not bookmarked it. The site changed its Favicon but the icon displayed in Firefox's search history remained unchanged. I later bookmarked the site, thinking that this might inspire Firefox to update the Favicon but it did not; Firefox displays the old Favicon in its bookmarks as well.

Greetings All, as a consequence of the last update of Firefox (16/1/21) I have lost all my passwords and bookmarks! I have deleted and reinstalled the program and was able to retrieve 6 passwords (that are more than 8 months old) the rest are missing. I have read and attempted to follow the instructions about the logins.json code without any luck. My system won't allow me to rename the file, there are as far as I can see no other corrupt versions of such a file. I have already spent fruitless hours on this. I have lost all my social media access as a consequence, lost my access to on-line learning and numerous other important access points. Can anyone help? Please! Yes, I am running AVG and something similar happened last year but on that occasion a fix from AVG solved the problem quickly. What can I do?

I have a website I built with ruby on rails with a bunch of posts where people can post images and videos. The videos are coded with :controls => true, :loop => true, :autoplay => true, muted: true, so they are playing as soon as the website is loaded on mute. The problem I have now is that when using firefox, ALL of the videos get played WITHOUT MUTE TOGETHER when the user goes to any other page. So whenever the user for example goes to the "about" page, the videos of the homepage are still playing on a loop with 100% volume and there is no way to stop it except for closing the website. This isnt really supporting for my user experience if you know what I mean.

What may also be worth mentioning is that I have a script which makes videos only play when on the user actually scrolled to their position.^

If you are interested in tinitus, you can try it out and listen to a concert of earrape videos (im not responsible for any braindamage). https://www.darkerr.co/posts This issue is not happening for Chrome, Safari or Edge. It must be something exclusively for firefox. Does anybody know how to fox this problem? Thank you so much!

Sometime in the last week or so, the lastpass and onetab icons that normally reside just to the right of the URL display and to the left of the download icon and the history icon in the upper right of my FF browser disappeared. I think maybe it was the result of an update, but I wasn't paying close attention, then when I did notice it, couldn't find anything on the interweb about it.

They are both still installed since if I go to the onetab on the playstore it only shows uninstall and if I restart the computer, one of my open browser windows will restart with the onetab open as a new tab. If I close the tab, there is then no evidence apparent that it is still there. I have hovered my mouse over that area but nothing shows to be there.

Any ideas? BTW, if not apparent from the above, I am not very technical. Thanks

Hello guys,

I was wandering if it would be a good idea for the Mozilla Foundation to create a new service: The Mozilla Passport Service, where it would store users legal information (in blockchain) and act as an intermediate with other services on the internet without exposing our information to those services. There have been many companies that are trying to achieve that but they lack something that the Mozilla Foundation has (to some point) and that's Trust from their customers. Also i don't see how Mozilla will survive in the future without providing future-proof services. Another thing is that in 2021 i really find it weird that there's not an easy way (off the social network) to contact Mozilla if someone has a new idea about their services (even if its stupid).

Anyways thanks for your time

Hi, The vams.cdc.gov portal is just showing a blank page, the cdc site says that firefox is a browser to use and also says chrome,safari etc. I need to get on the site because I have to register my mother for over 75 to get the vaccine. I have a phone modem and windows 7. Trying to download either of the other browsers is a long long long download. Anybody know the fix to getting this portal working. I noticed that it uses the Aura framework ie window.Aura By the way the page source is there, and the title bar does show VAMS Portal, just the blank page though. Thanks for helping if you can.

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Hi,

I'm having an issue where I can't see all of my bookmarks or folders after syncing. I am missing a folder that held a lot of bookmarks. When I go to search for specific bookmarks I can find them but I can't see the folder that contains them. It appears as if the folder or folders themselves have been hidden somehow. I only noticied this after signing in to my mozilla account and syncing my bookmarks. It seems there are issues syncing desktop to mobile and mobile back to desktop.

Please help me find my missing bookmarks. Thank you :)
