Hi there, I'm not too sure if Firefox is the correct place to start, but have to start somewhere so thought I'd start with you as I'm able to send an email off to Firefox and can only find a phone number for Amazon and this requires me to ask someone to ring for me. I've been buying a few things off Amazon over the past few months. But now if I'm quick enough to type out their puzzle I'm then told that they will send me (OTP) One Time Password, but a OTP never arrives. So, thought I'd check with you to see if you knew of a remedy, or perhaps there is something I need to do within Firefox. I must add here, that I have used Firefox for many, many years and do all of my/our online shopping with Firefox and never struck a problem before now. Hoping you have a suggestion. Regards, Chris

Since a few days I noticed on two different windows 10 PCs that firefox keeps signin out of websites (yahoo, linkedin etc), and this happens semi-randomly but sometimes more than once per day. My security settings never changed, I did configure firefox to delete history when closing, but preserving cookies and active logins. I also tried to add those websites to trusted sites (in the tracking menu, the shield to the left of the url). Any advice?

I'm using macbook, firefox version 82.0.

My firefox doesn't not startup with previous sessions. it only shows one blank tab no matter what I had when I closed it. happens both when I simply close it or completely quit it. I marked the "restore previous session" on the startup menu in the preference, didn't help or had any change.

I had most updated versions of Mozilla Firefox in my windows 10 machine. last two days, it is not opening. Tried several recommendations from Community page, Help documents and youtube solutions but nothing seems to be working.

  • Tried re-installing firefox, by downloading the latest version from Mozilla, after deleting the profile folder (%APPDATA%)
  • Tried removing the cache files / temp files etc., and restarted as well, still did not work.

I do not have admin permission hence could not open in windows safe mode.

Any suggestion please?, Appreciate your input!

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd

Why add-ons won't start with Firefox? Every time I need to manually disable and enable extensions Privacy Badger, uBlockOrigin (Privacy out of the box extensions) for it to be working, that is, they don't work upon start up. I have deleted the .mozilla folder in my Linux machine to reset firefox and it starts with add-ons only one time; when starting a second time, add-ons don't appear in the toolbar yet they are "enabled" but not working. As previously stated, I need to enable them manually.

Problem: viewing radar at weatherunderground.com using Firefox only works in Safe Mode. This problem started about 3 weeks ago. The radar also works correctly using Edge. Advice? It has to be a Firefox setting that I have wrong. I have already tried "refreshing Firefox". That caused me a lot of grief trying to get bookmarks back.
