Every version from 69 to 80 crashes and then will not restart unless I log off or restart the computer. The crashes happen every time. I have uninstalled. I have have installed different versions. It will not start in safe mode after a crash. I can start in safe mode after a restart of the computer, it still crashes soon after.

I only have windows defender at the moment and I have that turned off right now. Windows 10 Pro.

Any help would be appreciated.

Since FF 69 the starting (not the loading!) of websites frequently lasts more than 10 seconds under Xubuntu. The tab remains empty during this waiting time, while no sign of the loading process can be seen: The tab header shows no title, only the URL. The animated loading icon of the tab header is not shown. The status bar shows no activity. For about 5 to 20 seconds it looks like the tab is frozen. (See hardcopy.) This phenomenon occurs irregularly, but repeatedly, approximately with 10-20 percent of all calls, regardless of the requested URLs. It typically occurs piled within a random period, that lasts between a some seconds and several minutes. It also happens in safe mode, regardless of the used profile (even an unmodified new profile) and both in private an non-private windows. As far as I can judge, the troubleshooting Information shows no abnormalities. There are no issues with the internet connection. I've been using Firefox trouble-free for more than 10 years, but this phenomenon only occurred since Firefox 69.0.

I have been using Firefox ESR 52.9.0 (32bit) on my Windows XP computer for some time now and a while back there was a problem with security certificates. They issued a special patch for the ESR version so we could continue to use Firefox. It would appear that this problem has somehow reappeared. Can we please get a patch once again to clear up this issue.

Thanks

I can't send troubleshooting information because I can't even connect to the Mozzilla website on my XP computer. I had to send this request from a different computer

The Dashlane website indicates that Dashlane Password Manager is compatible with Firefox Browser but I am unable to find it in the extension list. Without Dashlane Firefox is useless to me since I have used it for years in Chrome and do not wish to attempt to import that information into another extension. Anyone know why it is missing?

As said in the title. I am an everyday user, I download files often. Suddenly, the download window's OK button stopped working, staying grey. Everything else with the browser seems to work. Other browsers work fine. I tried restarting the computer and even reinstalling Firefox. Cannot download or open files anymore, which makes this browser unusable until the problem is solved.

I have several add-ons installed and I want to be able to start them up (of course). In the toolbar I added the add-ons icon, but when i click that it only gives me a list of installed add-ons. For instance it says that Enpass add-on is installed, but I can't see the add-on itself in teh toolbar and therefore can't start it up. I have tried everything i can think of, but nothing works. Please help!

This issue arrised a few days ago when trying to re-sign into my firefox sync account on my W10 PC. When entering the 2FA number I got the message exactly like in the second attached image: "Your email was just returned" therefore I was unable to sign in.

Attempts to sign in elsewhere were successful and, at the time, I suspected it was an issue with 2FA because I had another issue with signing in to something else and went to firefox to validate that.

Although I can sign in normally now; I am still unable to add 2FA, account recovery, or a secondary email as I still get the same message.

The search bar that used to be in the center of the page has suddenly moved to the top of the page in all new tabs: https://i.imgur.com/2f5VZjv.png

This started around noon today, and was not preceded by any updates or changes to Firefox or any of my addons, so far that I'm aware of.

How do I return the search bar to the center of the page?

I've asked on Reddit but I haven't found a fix for this yet so I'm asking here. In the settings for Firefox it says that my browser is being managed by your organization. But it has no mention of any settings being restricted, and when I clicked the notification to check the policy the page was entirely empty. I also checked the Firefox program folder and there wasn't any sign of an Autoconfic file that I could notice. One user mentioned on Reddit that this issue is often caused by antivirus companies forcefully inserting their own SSL certs to intercept your encrypted traffic, he then suggested turning off "web scanning" but my antivirus (which I only use Malwarebytes and Windows Defender) already had them disabled. After doing some research on my own I found out that the antivirus Avast used to cause this issue, and I had uninstalled Avast a while back, so I figured that the reason that the policy wasn't there was because Avast was uninstalled, but, I never saw this notification before today. So if anybody can help me pinpoint what this is and how remove it would be much appreciated. But all I really want to know if is this is something that I should be worried about or is it simply a bug. Also one other question is why the top sites and search bar is really close to the address bar after the latest update. Is this just a design change? Or is this something I need to be concerned about? Because I didn't notice this on Firefox on my laptop. Thanks in advance.

Hi! Within the past month or so, Firefox login/password autosave has stopped working correctly. I want it to autosave most passwords, and it had been doing that fine. Then I noticed saved passwords were being rejected by sites, and when I clicked on 'view' to see what the saved password was that had been autofilled, it wouldn't be right. It would be a different login and password for a previous site. For instance, firefox was trying to autofill my college login with my personal email and a different password, not my .edu email. I haven't changed any behavior or gone into settings or done anything that seems likely to trigger this issue. Also can't find anything about it in search. Any ideas?
