How do I reset Firefox to where it looks like I just got the browser. I don't want any favorites, or bookmarks, or saved anything. I want to see if that helps a problem I have. I want to delete Firefox and get it again, like taking a test and then asking for a fresh sheet of paper new. I tried deleting the browser and uninstall it but that didn't work because I still have all my saved stuff, favorites, etc. I don't want that.

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

So when I try to visit archive.org or its wayback machine, I get "Secure Connection Failed" Two widgets are offered: a tickbox for reporting issues and a [Try Again] button. Your Help says to click on the [Advanced] button but there isn't one.

Before anybody gives me a lesson in online security, I would ask that you focus on your usability issue and not my personal habits, thanks.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

We produce Matterport 3D virtual tours. Up till now, we have been able to embed the tours on our, and client sites, and they play on-page with no issue.

We have discovered that our spaces, when embedded on a webpage, dont work in Firefox and get a ‘oops, model not available’ error.

They all work if the page is loaded in safari.

We are using this code to embed which has always worked up till now:

<iframe class="embed-responsive-item" src="https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=6By4dFjpWL2&brand=0" width="300" height="150" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe>

The actual straight URL works in Firefox - just not the embedded ones.

Matterport claim that they wont work if 2 or more are embedded on a page, which seems odd since: - this only just started happening - it doesnt happen in browsers other than firefox - some people (rarely) dont have the issue even in Firefox

Here is an example of a page with the tours embedded, having the issue in Firefox: https://www.unicol.unimelb.edu.au/about-us/gallery/virtual-tours/

Hello, At work we're using Google Meet for video chats with our colleagues. During the meeting, when I navigate to other windows, there's small a FireFox window that allows me to navigate back to the meeting, and is shown on top of all other windows. So far so good. The problem is that meetings end, I close the meeting windows, but this small Windows stay on top, cannot be closed, clicking on it does nothing. I can just move it right and left. How can I get rid of it when there's no meeting? Thanks

Dear Firefox,

Since the most recent update I am experiencing problems in being able to save pictures. I find an image in Google Image Search, click on it and go to save .... however it does not save. The process even prompts me to select the folder I want it saved in, the name I want to give the file and so on. I do all of these things - but there is no picture there when I go to the folder. I have tried saving to different folders but no luck. This does not happen in all cases, only on some pictures.

I find the only way i can save the picture is to click on View Image and then prompt it to save. However as my work involves finding lots of images online, this is adding several steps to the process. It is also annoying when I have to save 50+ pictures and then go back and find that maybe half-a-dozen or so are not there

A new problem has occurred since updating to FF 67.0.

My default configuration is to block all cookies. For those sites I wish to allow, I create exceptions to either Allow or Allow for Session.

On one of the sites I use I have an exception as: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session (name changed to protect the innocent)

There are a number of subdomains used and so all subdomain cookies are allowed for the session.

As of FireFox 67, I could no longer log into the site. I found that it was stuck in a loop reloading the page.

If I allowed all cookies, then the login would work. Once logged in, I could block all cookies again and everything continued to work on the site. So it was only the process of logging in that was failing.

First thing I did was disable all cookie related add-ons. That didn't help. If I changed the setting for CompanyName.com to Allow, it worked. Next I tried setting CompanyName.com back to Allow for Session and tried each subdomain with the Allow. What I found was I need to change one specific subdomain to Allow, so now my exceptions list is like this: https://CompanyName.com Allow for Session https://login.CompanyName.com Allow

So it seems as though the necessary cookie for login.CompanyName.com was being removed early so the log in could not be completed. Once a log in was successful, I could look at the cookies and see them for this subdomain (as well as the others).

I can't see anything I did wrong, so I'm thinking there may be a bug somewhere in FF67.

I am trying to transition from MS Edge to Firefox. I frequently use the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administrations weather services (for example, https://forecast.weather.gov/).

Weather maps loop (show motion) without a problem in Edge (for example, https://radar.weather.gov/radar.php?product=N0R&rid=FFC&loop=yes). But they do not show a map and they do not display an error in Foxfire.

I tried the javascript manager add-in and made https://radar.weather.gov/ and exception to allow, but it did not work, and it caused problems with other pages I use multiple times a day, so I removed it. I saw the sequence about a similar problem with he weather underground weather maps, but I as best as I can tell https://radar.weather.gov/ is not blacklisted.

How do I get NOAA's weather maps to loop (move) in Foxfire? Do I just need to give up and use Edge?
