With the new Gmail update, Firefox 27.0.1 no longer allows me to sign into my account, as it says my browser does not support Javascript. Is there any method or add-on I can use to enable Javascript on my old Firefox version? I tried using about:config, but I forgot my password and cannot log in.

There is a GM support forum that won't load images, they just show a blank area with a spinning circle. Works fine with Microsoft edge. I started Firefox in safe mode and still just get spinning circles instead of an image. The forum site is still usable, but have noticed same issue on other site, but don't remember the url.

This is the URL that doesn't work https://www.gm-trucks.com/forums/

Received notification this morning that I received the latest and greatest update from Firefox. Ever since receiving that notification, every time I do a Google Search, it comes back with response from Yahoo. My default Search engine is Google yet I can't receive anything back from Google. It won't even allow me to get in to Google Maps. What gives?

Yesterday I updated Firefox to version 82 and now it won't start up, it seems to immediately crash. There is no error report dialog box. This is on Windows 10 with the latest patches. I tried restarting the computer, installing Firefox 82 32-bit and 64-bit versions, uninstall + reinstall, and safe mode, but none of these work. (This is on a corporate laptop so I have a limited ability to change internal system settings.) The Windows error from the event log is:

Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 82.0.0.7592, time stamp: 0x5f8738dd Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.17763.1432, time stamp: 0x80224f6f Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x00000000000a4740 Faulting process id: 0x2998 Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a816d74b6186 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 5ed88218-3f48-47be-8c6c-aa5af98c902b Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

I installed Firefox 81 and that works fine, but it constantly tries to updated and every time I restart it crashes again. It also seems like I can't access my saved logins/passwords in this older Firefox version because it's using a different profile. I'm trying to avoid updating Firefox on my other Windows 10 computer in case it fails in the same way.

Please let me know if you need any more information. Thank you.

I had to restart my computer after upgrading ESET AntiVirus and I now have no saved passwords in FireFox.

I have located the logins.json file which is inside my current profile and can open it with FireFox. It contains over 100 records but the username/password fields are encrypted.

I understand that the logins.json file works with a file called key*.db to unencrypt the information. I can see key4.db and key3.db inside my FireFox profile folder but I'm not sure why it's not working.

Can anyone offer any advice on how I can get my passwords back?
