There is nothing in the Library, not even backups.

FredMcD replied to my Bing problem with Firefox, but sadly despite trying several ways as soon as I click on add-on my page just goes blank.

Tools add-on same blank page, same with Firefox page click on the three lines scroll down to add on blank screen comes up.

When I googled this problem there were several videos that stated it was a virus, I have Malwarebytes premium so I have also contacted them for their assistance. Bing or any other of the sites listed SafeSearch etc. none are listed in my files list so nothing to delete.

Is it worth deleting Firefox and then next day download it fresh, or is the bad add-on just lurking ready to attach itself again.

I have uninstalled firefox, shut off my computer, turned it back on, re-installed firefox and tried to right click on the exe program file and run as administrator - nothing works. Now I am having to use Chrome to browse...yuk. All my bookmarks (TONS) are on FIrefox and I like this browser much better than Chrome or Edge.

Hello! New Firefox user here, since I got too annoyed with IE crashing. So, I often download PDF documents from the Web. With IE, you get a pop-up that asks you to pick a location in which to save the download. I like that. But with Firefox, all I can do is download it to some "library" that I can't find on my computer or retrieve the articles from. My two questions:

1. Where is that library? On my computer - where???

2. I want the articles on a flash drive, not in some library. How can I specify to Firefox to save the article on my flash drive or desktop, instead of that library?

Thank you!

Hello Since late December Firefox has become slow and unstable, requiring regular restarts. See below crash reports. There is a gap because I went on vacation. I do not use this PC much (only to run some extensions) and use FF to run some extensions so it is not my browsing / usage (although it might be the extensions I'm running?) Please help!

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.
