Not sure if this is from you or not, but I keep getting a pop up ad every 30 seconds if not less hitting me up on their program to stop ads and pop ups. In other words in order to get this ad off my back, I am obligated to purchase this program?? Then when I finely clicked on the dam link it offers another link to down load the program for free. Going through the process in hopes to get this to stop I get directed to another page asking for money. No down load. What is it or who is it that writes this madness up and puts it out there to plague everyone until they put money on the table? and you can never talk to a real live flesh and blood person. Just about the time you think it can't get any more insane it does.

Firefox keeps crashing, when I boot it up a prompt appears for half a second asking if I'd like to go to safe mode, but the prompt window instantly closes after half a second. I have tried refreshing the app, uninstalling, and reinstalling, and nothing seems to work. The app was working a day before this. How can I get it to work properly again? It is worth noting that I had to ask my parents to allow my computer to use firefox the day before all this happened, but after that, it worked fine. Only now there are crashes every time.

Been using Nightly for a while and have always had "Close Tabs Manually" set. Noticed this morning that many tabs were missing and others were 'inactive' and soon to be closed.

The setting is still "manual", and changing it to monthly/back to manual still shows the 'inactive tabs' panel.

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.

Hi pals,

It's beginning to annoy me that I have to keep signing into my Firefox account and that I have to adjust setting on the browser, like the language (the default is somehow German and I need it to be in English) and the search engine keeps defaulting back into Google instead of Duckduckgo.

This isn't a normal thing, right?

I've recently switched back to Firefox from Chrome (see: yesterday) and without a break, the above keeps happening which is starting to get to me because I just want to look things up. I've installed the usual Add-ons I had when I was on Chrome like:

  • Dicitionary Anywhere
  • Earth View
  • uBlock Origin

I've read about Disconnect though so that's new for me. So this could be the culprit but other than that, I'm clueless. If anyone has any insight as to what keeps resetting and logging me out, please let me know.

When loading certain websites, the images load correctly, but the text is scrambled (see attached image). About 1/3 of the sites I visited today were scrambled, others loaded fine. This just started to happen last week. I tried downloading and installing a new copy of Firefox but it did not fix the problem. I cleared the cache but no luck. This is on an iMac operating on IOS 10.9.5. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Suddenly I can't type into the search engine bar which is mid page on my home page.

I can select it, but it stays blank and anything I type appears at top of the page in the address bar. This happens with any browser I use on my home page (have tested with Google, Duck Go Go, and a few others; same thing happens.

I'd like to get back functionality on that search engine bar mid page.

I'm operating in Windows 10, with the latest Firefox upgrade installed.

Thank you !

For the past two days, maybe due to a Firefox "upgrade", not only have I lost all my saved tabs but Firefox does NOT restore my tabs and does NOT allow me to "restore previous sessions".

What is going on?

I am not happy about this as I typically have 20+ tabs open to do my work .It takes me at least 10 min to restore most of my tabs manually.

Please explain.

When I try to reset the primary password, I can get a new password - the only problem is that this new password is not accepted when I try set a new login into a web site. It looks like there are two different passwords: one for "Firefox Accounts" and one for "Firefox Logins". How to reset the latter one when they differ. There is a kind of deadly embrace! Not to forget that the access to the support can be on the same email address with a totally different password.

Is a start from scratch with a completely new profile a possible solution?

I received a Yahoo email which contained a set of 33 images, all of which display correctly in W10 and (pardon the expression) Edge. Attachment 0 shows 1 of the 33 images.

Of those 33 images, I can see only 13 using W10 and Ffx 88.0.1. The rest are blank spaces. Attachment 1 is one of the blanks.

Attachment 2 is the URL for one of the blanks. Attachment 3 is an error message that I hope might help to determine what's going on here.

What am I missing? Do I have my Ffx settings messed up? I'd appreciate a nudge in the right direction...thanks!

Outgoing messages also appear in my Sent folder, so I end up having two copies.
