Hi. Has anyone ever had this problem where Firefox suddenly does not work even after reinstalling it?

I updated my Nvidia drivers to 461.40 and when I opened Firefox, it just came up with a blank white window.

I tried entering Safe mode by holding down the Shift button and opening it again but it just hung on the safe mode window that comes up. Tried pressing the buttons but nothing happened.

I thought it must have been the Nvidia update that's done this but I rolled back to the previous version and now Firefox won't even open. It just shows up as a process in task manager.

I've uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Am I missing something?

Is there something in the old profiles that's preventing Firefox to open again?

I believe I was using Firefox 86, running Windows 10 Home.

HI,

On a multiboot Debian/Ubuntu laptop I accessed to a shared .thunderbird profile with a newer version than usual.

When back to my usual thunderbird version I got the message "A newer version of thunderbird may have made changes to your profile..." and found whole mail and parameters lost ?!

Then, reading https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profile-thunderbird-installation I used the --allow-downgrade option to run my usual thunderbird version and got mail and calendar back.

Great ! But I lost my whole 20 years adressbook.

I can't believe that developpers did such upgrades without previous advice or doing any backup !

Now I just hope there is a way to recover my adressbook.

I use Thunderbird 78.8.0 and Firefox 86.0 build3

I changed my gmail password in FF and can use gmail in an FF tab but TB login fails with new or old gmail password. I recently changed Thunderbird security from 0Auth2 to 'normal password'. I tried removing my account from TB and adding back - it still fails. What did I do wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help.

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

have set up as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-saved-passwords-firefox-ios

when you enter login the pop up window offering to save passwords has never appeared since firefox installed(pop ups are allowed in settings) though if you manually enter a login the pasword autofills from the details held on firefox sync but cannot get both to happen and itdoesn't retain the login to autofill next time you use site.


firefox is the default browser

the sync file works as it should on Imac with logins auto-filling as expected its just not working on ipad

Hello I am German and not used to write in english. I use Firefox on my Xperia device. Within the last Update I got the new function to collect the tabs. I created several collections and named them. After I put in the tabs and deleted them in the list. So they were only in the collections. Today I wanted to use one Tab out of the collection. But the whole collection Was not any more there, same with 2 Others! Where are these collections and the tabs now? I did not delete them and I need them.

Where are they and how can I use them again?

Kind regards

Mischa

I have to use the reload button often, because pages will often show outdated cached versions. How can I get the reload button back on the main toolbar, so I can reach it with one click?

NOTE: Existing solutions provided in the forums which were based on about:config usage have been effectively thwarted. Please provide suggestions which work for the Release version. (Yes, it makes life more difficult)

My Inbox has 687 emails, but I can only see the content of the three latest emails. Emails older than that do not display. The preview pane is blank for those, and when double clicking on an email the message view is also blank. Emails in other folders than the Inbox are displayed fine, also older emails. I have Thunderbird 78.4.3 (32 bit). I have no active extensions. I have tried the launch with shift pressed method to Reset toolbars and controls, but that didn't help. Is there a tool that re-indexes emails?

I'm trying to import contacts from Windows Live Mail. When I use the .csv method it imports everything but only shows a human silhouette on each line with NO text. When I try the .vcf method, WLM won't let me export to anything but a folder, and the import process doesn't recognize the folder as a whole and will only import one address at a time if I open the folder. How do I do this???

I have Firefox 78.7.1 on my Mac. For some reason, the Top Sites and Highlights are not displaying on my home Page or on each new Tab. I have tried adding sites and they won't be added. I have restarted Firefox in Safe Mode and in Refresh mode - made no difference. I have made sure all the correct boxes are clicked in Preferences - General, Home and Private/Security. Where to next?
