Is it possible to have the Startup cache cleared automatically before opening a session?

Using FF 88.0.1 in both Linux Mint and Windows 10 and without syncing add-ons, The "New Tab Override" looses my granted permission and opens a new tab on it's own Options/Preferences page, where it shows that permission is granted.

The simple solution I found that clearing the Startup cache restores functionality.

Already reported this on the add-on's Github site, which directed me back here.

I've been using my banking site for many years on my desktop computer. Today the site comes up but when I try to log in I get a "404" error message. I tried logging in with Edge and there was no problem. I have deleted all my banking cookies on Mozilla and the result is the same. This is a major problem and I would appreciate any suggestions.

Suddenly! Cannot open Firefox because of the error message: "Firefox profile missing or unavailable."

I found the profile in my Library.

Looked for internet advertised "Firefox profile manager," but could not find it. Only one I could find was obsolete.

Thank you.

Hello, I have searched the internet for a solution to this, basically what is happening is I'll go about browsing, as you would. then I click on a link, maybe type in the website and it says "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at (website) If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try: Try again later. Check your network connection. If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web." I did notice it's quite random, most websites work but every 1 in 10 I'd say I get this error, then I refresh the page and it loads.

I've changed my DNS, Removed my firewall, and reset my firefox and none of that worked, please help.

youtube video of it in action:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioKKYKnrniQ

basically it just doesn't load then loads when I refresh it.

Hi. So I have installed Firefox Nightly on my Windows laptop. The browser refuses to start up after restarting post update. I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser and even using a whole new profile to eliminate the obvious causes. The behaviour is not predictable. Sometimes it occurs after the first update post installation and sometimes later after 3-4 update cycles but it does happen for certain. If it is of importance, my laptop is locked down by my company's IT admin to prevent software installations. So when I have to install Nightly using the msi, he puts in his password. I am just wondering if that is what is messing with the Mozilla Maintenance Service trying to update the Nightly installation.

For days I was noticing that, after exiting sleep mode for at least a couple hours, Firefox would open up with the spinning wheel and would be completely frozen. Frequently I'd have to reboot and re-open in Safe Mode, because it wouldn't force quit. Then I'd disable the plugins when I had it open. But eventually I had to re-activate this plugin in order to stream content. I don't know 100% if this is causing the problem. Is anyone else having issues with this plugin and if so, is there a simple way to fix/debug?

Why is Firefox blocking Flickr and Tumblr without my permission.

I reinstalled Google Chrome as a proxy and then was able to login but a day later I was blocked again since Firefox is the default browser on my PC. Frustrating to say the least. Firefox does not have carte blanche authority to block sites without consulting these sites' customers first. The URL shield is grey and when I switch it off it has the line through it but still will not load.

Suggestions please?

"What's new in Firefox Klar for Android (version 8)

This article is no longer being maintained, so its content may be out of date.  "
What should I do with this statement?  Is the fox out of date now?  I'm German speaking, hence my consulting FF"Klar"...
"Article" can mean a lot, including an entire program that I install. Nothing "klar" at all - please do enlighten me!

Besides, what a convincing concept that Firefox "Klar" being meant for the German-speaking area appears in English and should no longer be serviced. Seems we really got to realize we're only American sprawling suburbs. Thanks anyway, with kind regards also from Onkel Google Übersetzer Henriette Klaey, a petrefact from the Prae-Analogikum henrietteklay450@gmail.com

I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.
