Suddenly, Firefox won't load Google Calendar. I see the template, but the items on the calendar won't load. I know it's not the calendar itself because it loads fine in Chrome and on all my android devices. I made sure all the add-ons were taken off. I refreshed. I cleared the cache. Erased history. Nothing worked.

I finally gave up, backed up all my bookmarks, and deleted Firefox. I downloaded it fresh and installed it again. Same problem! The calendar won't load. I found others complaining, but no one had a solution.

Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but a friend told me this was part of a "browser war" and Firefox would no longer support a variety of sites and apps. Is that true? Or do you have a solution.

Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back. My e-mail provider is asking me if I can provided them with the e-mail sent by firefox, and the received answer, so they could check what is causing it. How could I get those information? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cyril

Live stream TV on Xfinity app blurs after 8-10 seconds. Initially the picture is crisp and clear then turns fuzzy.

This does not happen when I access recorded versions of the same program. The channels involved are not those restricted to be accessed only via my in-home wifi.

It occurs with a handful of certain cable network channels and it happens whether I'm using my laptop with Comcast or Charter ISPs. This condition does not appear with other web browsers.

Nor does it happen on my iPad, just my MacBook Pro and it hasn't always been an issue with the MBP. As far as a time frame goes, I would say it started happening within the last 6-9 months.

I appreciate any efforts to help. Thanks.

I use Firefox on a Macbook.

I configured the search (about:preferences#search) to include only one search engine: DDG. As a result, when the URL/search bar is focused, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is not displayed. This is the expected behavior.

Starting about a month ago, it started exhibiting a bug: at random times, the search settings are getting reset. So whenever I open a new tab and focus the URL/search bar, the bottom bar with "This time, search with..." is appearing and displays four icons. When I go to search preferences, I see the same search engines that I removed a while ago.

This pattern has repeated about five times, and I'm getting tired of it. Is there a way I can make sure that Firefox remembers my preferences and doesn't reset them?

Thank you, Alex

  1. 1. Ought to have a "Suggestions" in the topic list.

My observation is that you have just changed the Bookmark Lookup function to show only bookmarks. It use to show folders as well. When I wanted to find a bookmark, it is often to move it to a more "consistent" place in bookmark map, and you can't do that any more.

Also on the Bookmark Edit page, it would be awfully helpful to have it's folder label displayed there as well.

Sometime within the last couple of weeks I have noticed that elements of YouTube's UI have vanished. Things like the red bar along the bottom of video thumbnails that indicate a video already watched, the video duration on the bottom right of the thumbnails, as well as the 'vertical three dots' ••• menu button underneath thumbnails that contained the "not interested" option no longer appear on the YouTube main page. The three dots menu still exists in the side bar list of recommended videos while actually watching a video, so it's only affecting the main page.

I have confirmed that those UI elements work in a different browser and, bizarrely, they seem to work when I use a Firefox private window. This led me to believe that one of my extensions was causing the issue, but even disabling all of them did not bring the missing UI element back in normal browser windows. I have also tried clearing all of my cache, cookies, and site data to no avail.

I am on Windows 10 Pro (Version 20H2 OS Build 19042.746) with an up-to-date Firefox (Version 84.0.2 64-bit). Current extensions: BetterTTV, FrankerFaceZ, uBlock Origin, and Facebook Container.

Attached image shows the lack of the three dots button on the top normal Firefox window and the presence of that button on the bottom private window.

I would appreciate any suggestions as to what may be causing this and possible solutions. Thanks for your time.

Preface: Mac Hd replaced, OSX restored from Time machine backup. Prior to this every thing worked fine.

Now: 1) FF TOOLBAR bookmarks have disappeared completely, but NOT the bookmarks in the sidebar etc. 2) Despite clearing cookies, enabling them and clearing corrupt cookies - certain sites (FBook) do not load properly (they do in safari). (until corrupt cookies were cleared I couldn't even log in to Mozilla)

Tried: Returned to earlier profile, no help. All other aspects of OSX seem ok.

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?
