New to Firefox...downloaded on Iphone, and started moving articles from chrome readling list to firefox. BUT, it's not syncing on my ipad or my desktop (pc). I scanned the QR code with my phone, but it says I need to do it through the app (which I am).

I'm switching because chrome keeps crashing. The biggest thing I use it for is when I see an article I want to read later, I can add on my phone, and it shows up on my laptop, pc, and Ipad. I'm sure firefox does the same?

PS: I'm very much not a computer person, so please dumb down for me :)

Same as the question.

The display shows some icons on the last tabs I opened but it seems only some basic website layout is loaded but all the details are gone. Like text, button borders, even the exit, fullscreen and minimize buttons. I have seen that this has been an issue for quite some time before so I am looking if there is a fix or a workaround. I have and Nvidia graphics card and drivers if that means anything. And my swap file is 20 GB and my RAM is 16 so the space shouldn't be a problem. It gets fixed when I turn off Firefox but not when I refresh tabs.

The crazy thing is that when I take a screenshot inside firefox (with firefox integrated screenshot option, like when I press right click and then take screenshot. I can see the text so it seems like it is a display problem but this only happens with firefox and not other apps.

Appreciate all the help. I will ask of ubuntu formums next if I don't find a solution here.

Thank you all for reading and answering!

Using Firefox 117.0.1 on Windows 10, whenever I try to download a file (eg right-clicking an image, 'Save image as...') or upload a file (eg a photo to Facebook or a PDF to Cloudconvert), Firefox completely freezes (greys out) and no matter how long I wait this doesn't resolve. In the end I have to click the red X icon at top right, completely shut down the programme, then re-open it. And it continues to be impossible to upload or download.

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/117.0

No crashes logged in about:crashes, but Windows reliability settings reveal the following:

Any advice?

Many thanks!

My Firefox browser automatically updated a few days ago. Since the update, the browser now crashes repeatedly during basic browsing, making Firefox essentially unusable. For instance, retrieving Yahoo mail, reading articles, accessing login pages -- the page will enter some type of refresh/reload cycle and crash the browser.

I opened the browser in troubleshoot mode and the problem did not occur. Following the Mozilla instructions, I disabled extensions and reopened the browser normally, and the crashes continued. I have not taken any additional actions.

This problem began immediately after the latest browser update on 9/13.

I think I have looked through all of the troubleshooting suggestions for loading / importing old Firefox Bookmarks following a new Windows install.

- I did not have Mozilla Sync turned on. - My new install of Mozilla doesn't have restore points from my old install / program files. - My old SSD is accessible, however, User folder directories don't have the 'AppData/' folder directory. - Of course, I didn't think about / have a chance to create a manual restore point prior to my computer's crash.

Copying over my old Mozilla parent directories from my old SSD directory to my new SSD directory, hasn't restored prior Mozilla settings / bookmarks.

Does Mozilla store bookmarks anywhere else ?
