I truly hope somebody can give me some help. I am struggling to understand why my website page containers go nuts on Firefox. I tried so much, I payed a good developer who told me the issue was over, but it is still there. I'm trying everything but my project is being a failure due to very nasty WP Theme issues, like this one. I had to spend my time fixing the Theme and my project completely past its deadline. Maybe I'm going to be fired, without fox.

I clearly cannot add site credentials for anybody, but maybe some developer knows what could be of help.

It seems that the issue has something to do with page Container and Flex attribute. The website is a Wordpress site and the page is built with WPBakery Visual Editor. All updated, no customizations, pages should work easy... As you can see the page title is ok, but then inside the main page container, the Visual Editor rows (which have display = flex) behave as if they had no width. Despite that, changing the flex attribute to display = block targeting FF specifically through Css, it doesn't seem to work either. It's not something simple just as a Row option inside the Visual Editor.

Please see attachments. Many pages behave like that. My questions: - is there a possibility to speak with Firefox assistance and get a clue? - did any developer from community, experience something similar before? How did you manage to solve it? - Firefox, why are you behaving like that with an old supporter?

Thank you to anybody spending his time to help.

Hi,

After losing my session history and bookmarks from using firefox's "forget last 5 minutes" feature on accident, I used shadowcopyview to create a backup of my old profile. Now, after two reinstalls, I still cannot recover my session or bookmarks, even when replacing the old profile entirely.

JeffersonCher's wonderful scrounger has helped me to recover from a similiar blunder in the past, but this time, attempting to recover the session from a recovery file gave me 3 websites I haven't visited in 2 years and an error message when attempting to recover the bookmarks.

Anything you can provide would be a big help: I am very confused on how to really proceed.

Thanks!

Hi guys~ for some reasons I can't add bookmarks on my firefox browsers. At first, the marked webpage will only show names but not the link, when i click on the bookmarks that i saved it won't direct me to page. Now even worse, the bookmark function doesn't work at all. I tried restore all my settings and redownloaded firefox three times, it's always the same problem. Also the history function doesn't store my current browsing history at all. I 100% sure I didn't change anything at the privacy section.

I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

I've been slowly migrating away from Chrome to Firefox on advice from friends. All of my bookmarks from Chrome were able to be imported, but not logins and websites. I have followed all of the steps regarding privacy settings and importing such info, including making sure Chrome is closed before importing, but to no avail. In addition, when I try to manually save logins/passwords in Firefox, the dialogue box asking if I want to save this information appears and I select yes. However, when I check my saved logins/passwords, there are zero.

All of my permissions are set to allow Firefox to remember this information, yet it still doesn't after multiple attempts on my part and multiple messages from FF saying that it has successfully saved said info.

In addition, when trying to import logins/passwords from Chrome, the dialogue box says it was successful, but another yellow dialogue box appears telling me to login with my Primary Password, yet does nothing when I click on it except take me to the Logins and Passwords page.

Is there a step I'm missing in all of this that would make the browser tell me all of this is working when in fact it isn't?

Attempted to sign into our Spectrum account using our primary browser, Firefox. The UName and PWord are correct. When Sign In is chosen Spectrum looks like it is trying to sign in but after a few seconds we get the message "We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060". BTW, I have no problem signing in using Safari, which is not the browser I use very often.

I removed the Spectrum cookies, site data and save logins from Firefox. Then I restarted Firefox (newest version available) and still could not log into Spectrum. I then went to the Firefox Help menu and chose Troubleshooting Information. In the list of three things to do on the right side I did not need to "Give Firefox a tune up", did not "Try Safe Mode" but did "Try clearing the startup cache". This message came up "Restart Firefox to clear startup cache. This will not change your settings or remove extensions you’ve added to Firefox." I chose restart. After the restart I could sign into Spectrum. I signed out of Spectrum and tried again to sign in, I could not do so. I repeated clearing the startup cache and signing in worked again.

Is there an explanation for this issue? Is there a fix?

I never used to have problems, but about a month or so ago my tabs kept crashing on different sites. I usually sent the report. Recently I did an HP suggested Optimize - which was a BIG mistake, but I say that because I had to have my whole OS reinstalled and added an antivirus program Webroot so I was astonished that the crashing is starting to happen again. Can you please tell me why or fix this problem or I may have to switch to another browser this is annoying! Thanks.

When I open the browser, the upper task bar which contains the web sites I most often visit, also opens three totally unidentified web sites that in fact are not recognized web sites since he message related to each is essentially telling me there was a problem opening the site. The identity of the three sites are not configured as web site address, and are identified in the task bar as "problems" How do I get rid of the upper task bar? I do not need it since the regular task bar below the address bar with all the specific features addressing the various options.

I have more than 100 tabs and more than 1k open in the background (the tab is downloaded from the previous session, but not open). When opening / closing the FF tabs, it gradually uses up to 18-20GB. When this limit is reached, friezes begin, the tabs open slowly. Memory busy FF is released ~2GB, after that it starts to load pages. According to symptoms, it looks like a shortage of RAM. But I have 64GB RAM, reserve (Win) 17GB, free 15GB. And more is 9GB SWOP on SSD, 136GB of free space on SSD and 1TB+ free space on HDD (RAID0), 200+ MB / sec internet . Where and what to change to ff used accessible resources? After all, they exist!

Dear Volunteer. Not "yelling" at you personally, but...

PLEASE discontinue “A web page is slowing down your browser.” It’s useless, and EVERYBODY hates it.

Since this "improvement" was force-fed to us, the opening of almost every site gets hijacked and frozen by a redundant alert.

Please at least give us the option to disable it. Seriously, I see (Not Responding) in the activity windows more than anything else since the idiotic yellow bar made it's unwelcome appearance.

PLEASE kill it. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, Thanks.

Hi All,

I am using a Desktop Windows computer and I am having trouble with 64 bit Firefox Version 87.0. For some reason I cannot play the sound in Instagram videos. All instagram videos will play but wil show the sound icon as muted and there is no way to click the sound icon which is shown in the lower right corner of the video to unmute it.

I disabled all the add-ons in firefox and I still am getting this problem. Chrome on the other hand seems to work just fine in playing Instagram videos with audio.

So what's up with Firefox?
