Hello! Using Firefox Developer Edition. Trying to get the command line prompt so I can type Javascript for a class. When in ctrl + shift + K Developer Tools: Web Console command line interface prompt (>> ) not showing (where I can type and test js code.)

I have

  1. set the ' devtools.chrome.enabled preference to true in about:config, ' as suggested in docs (but it still has no >> to type on).
  2. Also enabled 'enable browser chrome and add on debugging' in developer... settings)

How can I type in the Firefox console to test Javascript commands? Thanks!

When I try to access [https://www.surinenglish.com/] I got the following:

Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. It has worked fine on this system and this browser before and still works fine in Vivaldi. No changes in AV software and no improvement when all extensions disabled. What could be causing it in FF (latest stable, Win 10)?

So today I went to go and look at a password in my browser, entered my Primary password and it wouldn't sign me in to let me see my passwords. I then went and changed it after many tries and It still wont let me in. I can enter it as many times as I want and press enter and the box just comes back up. I am worried that by changing my password I have most likely just lost all my saved passwords. Do I just reinstall firefox? Or will the problem remain if I do so? A part of me doesn't want to reinstall if the problem will still be there, but this time, I won't be logged into anything at all.

And yes, I have tried most things I have seen in these forums, I am desperate.

Hi, I opened Firefox this morning and found Amazon pinned among my top sites. Weirdly enough, I can't unpin it or dismiss it - it just stays there whatever I do (in contrast to other pinned sites). It's not a huge problem, but I have some ethical issues with Amazon, so the last thing I want to see every time I open my browser is their logo. I also wonder how did it get there in the first place (I sometimes do browse the site to get an idea what are the prices of various products, but not too often and I'm not sure if there is a way to pin it by accident at all). Does anyone have the same problem?

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.

Hello, I am using a new HP computer with Firefox as my main browser. I use two screens. I have had problems with Firefox for the past couple of weeks. I usually have a couple of windows of Firefox open. One on the first screen with multiple tabs and another on the other screen. I also run chat programs, Discord, Antivirus programs, Zoom, Slack, and a few others.

Firefox crashing has also crashed other programs. I have had Discord crash a few times and Displayfusion crash as well.

I updated FireFox to the newest version. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled. I updated Windows. Flash is turned off. My video drivers are updated. I checked for viruses and spyware. I did have some Bit Coin Mining malware detected, but it was quarantined last week. All scans now are clear.

For some reason videos on twitter (& audio posts) don't output any sound thru my speakers when played.

The tab isnt muted, nor is the volume down in windows 10's mixer, in fact the sounds even shows up as playing in windows volume mixer. but nothing comes out

Other websites work just fine! It appears to be only a twitter issue, tried opening new tabs etc & they still dont output sound :(

Works in other browsers like chrome too Any help would be appreciated!

I did a browser refresh, and when it was done, almost everything it was supposed to save was gone. "Firefox will save these items:

   Bookmarks
   Browsing and download history
   Passwords
   Cookies
   Web form auto-fill information
   Personal dictionary "

Bookmarks, gone. Home tabs, gone. Browsing and download history, gone. Cookies: spotty. Autofill; partly missing.

And a new tab is now completely blank (see attached image). I thought it might repopulate itself, but nope. Just blank.

All my home tabs were wiped, and I was able to put them back. But this outcome was unexpected. Some places I had to log back into; some I did not.

So I feel like I am now dealing with a broken browser, and not sure what to do about it. At least the buggy hangups and crashes seem to be fixed. Maybe.

edit: Also noticed I cannot make new bookmarks. Halp....

I Googled about stopping using Firefox beta and transition to release version but none of the pages I found in this forum talks about an error message about user profile that only gives me the option to Create a New Profile (therefore losing all my add-ons, cookies, settings and everything) or Exit.

I tried manually googling "download Firefox" and downloaded the release version and after installing it, I get the warning message above. This thread here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224888 has a link to the rapid release version but I end up in the same warning message.

Since the beta will necessarily always be a newer version than a release version, how do I transition from beta to a release version but preserve all my settings, add-ons and everything if Firefox will tell me that it won't let me use my existing profile in an older version, the release version?

My motivation to leave the beta version is that Firefox started having a bug since 27-Oct-2020 in Google meetings where either a shared screen or the camera image of the person in a meeting appears very zoomed in in the top left corner so it doesn't show the rest of the image.

When viewing a PDF document in firefox using PDF.js, I hit Ctrl+F to open a search dialog. Firefox's own search bar appears at the bottom of my screen. However, I want not Firefox's native search bar, but the PDF.js search tool. Firefox's search bar cannot search the entire PDF document. Instead, it searches only the currently viewed page or two.

I think this is a bug, and I would welcome any ideas or workarounds. Please let me know if I should post a bug report somewhere else. A cursory internet search didn't reveal any others reporting the same problem.

Unable to import saved firefox profile (from windows 7 32-bit, to windows 10 64-bit) - new profile has none of my data

My attempt at transferring profile from an existing machine to a new machine has not produced the intended result, and I need help.

I saved my firefox profile (on a 32-bit windows 7 machine; firefox was fully up to date) without firefox running, in a ZIP file (the letter number combination followed by dot followed by default), then copied the ZIP file to the new machine (windows 10 64-bit), unzipped it (so I had the same file name as from the old machine), then copied this folder into position at

C:\users\user\appdata\roaming\mozilla\firefox\profiles

I then started firefox on the new machine, went to about:profiles, created new profile, selected the folder (which was present at this step), then completed the procedure and started a new firefox with the new profile (the option given in about:profiles).

The new instance of firefox has none of my data (several thousand bookmarks, passwords, etc.); instead looks like the other (default new) profile.

The existing profile file set was (after this procedure) visible in

C:\users\user\appdata\local\mozilla\firefox\profiles

The restored profile is running now as "Default User" and reflects the folder I transferred from the old machine (except that I changed the word "default" in that folder to "main", leaving the number-letter part and the dot unchanged.)

No errors were indicated from firefox (which is running version 83 now) during any steps of the old back-up/archive save step or the new restore/recover step.

What am I doing wrong? How can I recover my existing profile data? The procedure, while not very friendly, seems straightforward enough. I don't want to go into the details of recovering specific database files/folders; I'd just like the profile I had before functioning in the new machine.

Please help

Dear community, for some days my Firefox 80 on Windows 10 has shown the message "your system administrator has deactivated updates", when I look under "Help" -> "about Firefox". This is strange, because the admin is me myself, and I didn´t change anything in Firefox or in the Win 10 registry. Has anyone of you had this experience, and how can I possibly fix it? Thanks in advance! Pete
