I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

Hi:

I am using the Safari browser on my Mac. Suddenly when I wanted to login into the Firefox account I got the 500 Error message that I pasted in the Subject. I am a new user of Firefox, just switched from Safari and I am not computer savvy...

I cannot login, I cannot create another account...

I hope I do not have to go back to Safari.... I have no idea what might cause this problem and what to do. I hope that somebody has the answer. Thanks in advance.

I deleted every Firefox and Mozilla file and folder I could find on my Mac. This was a scorched-Earth deletion (or so I thought). The Firefox application, my profile folder, any user Library files I could find, even caches - I deleted everything. The hope was I could reinstall a pristine version of Firefox (Firefox has been going zombie on me since May). I installed the latest download, signed into my Firefox account - and suddenly, it knew all my previous-used passwords and bookmarks. I thought these were stored in your Profiles folder (and not in the cloud somewhere) -- which I had deleted? How did Firefox find them if they were no longer on my Mac?

Since there was an attempted hack a few weeks ago that firefox interrupted I have been unable to access my electric utility account. I tried working through the company trying to sign in to no avail even after changing id's and passwords numerous times. They told me they have done all they can at their end. I really would like to talk to someone who can help me. I'm 73 years old and do use my computer that often and am not really computer savvy. If you can help me, my phone number is 610-967-4006. I really hope to hear from somebody soon.

Having an issue with youtube as of late on firefox. The ability to see "history" list, "watch later" list, or utilizing the save function do not work because I am constantly having to login. For some reason the ability to see lists or to utilize any functions on the youtube website do not work properly because I am unable to remain logged in. Is anyone else having difficulty with youtube?

What is the specific URL that is required to access auto-updates from the client? As an enterprise, we have locked down devices that have limited Internet connectivity. Our security area will not open the entire download area, so we are looking for the specific URL or web address that is needed so we can still auto-update clients. We want to move more people to Firefox, but need to get this working first.

I had to get a new hard drive on my laptop, so I'm sure you can imagine how stressed I already am.

Plus I'm in Spain, and the computer guy who fitted the new hard drive has set my computer language to Spanish, which so far I'm unable to change!

Anyway... I'm hoping someone can help me reinstall my firefox settings and tabs etc.

I did this once before and recalled it being very easy, however I've just followed the instructions and I'm not getting anywhere.

I've got a windows tablet, where the original firefox settings were copied to years ago. It's all up to date.

Since my hard drive on my laptop was trashed, and I have a new one fitted, I'm hoping I can now copy all of the firefox settings from my tablet, onto the reborn laptop.

I've typed in %appdata%\Mozilla\firefox\profiles\ and 2 files are listed.

pjdchlcd.default-release

And

xiwodwfv.default-1561288394972

The instructions tell me to right click, and copy,however on my tablet I have no mouse, so can't right click. (I'm not great using the tablet becauseit has no mouse, and as such, have barely used it)

So here I'm already stuck!

I had the option to copy full path, but could not paste anything to the usb when I did that.

Any help at this time would be much appreciated!

I am trying to update a password on a program. Secure password autofilled the old password with the new one I typed. When I went to update, the program said the old password is incorrect. I then went to Lockwise to see my password for the program and it showed the new one and said last modified this date. Is there a way to see my previous password before today new update?

I cannot post any comment on Youtube on Mozilla Firefox. I can on Chrome and Edge. I use some add-ons (Screenshot below) but I'm pretty sure they don't interfere with it. I might have switched a parameter of Mozilla or I am blind and I cannot see where I should click to post a new comment on Youtube. I've put another screenshot of the comment section in which you can clearly see there is no option visible to post a new comment under a video..

Any idea or recommendation ?

Have a nice day tho.

I'd like to be able to change my keyboard shortcuts for Firefox, but I don't see how to do that. Mouse buttons don't work at all, and ctrl-shift-tab / ctrl-tap don't do what I want them to.

I see no way to customize shortcuts, they seem baked into the source code.
