I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

Good day,

since yesterday the Evenote Web Clipper stopped working. When reinstalling the web clipper I get the regular screen:

"Welcome to Evernote Web Clipper!" where you have to confirm to enable web clipper. When clicking on "Allow" nothing happens. At the same time occasionally I got the message the Firefox was not directed to Evernote in teh right way.

What have I tried thus far - without positive outcome: - disabling and then enabling the web clipper in Firefox preferences - deleting and re-installing the web clipper - deleting Firefox, re-install Firefox and then re-install the web clipper

The web clipper is functioning fine under Safari.

May it be that the change of privacy policy by Evernote (dus May 15) has something to do with it ?

Thank you for your suggestions !


Best regards, René.

I just made a clean install of windows. It seems that firefox for some bizarre reason won't accept cookies from some sites.

For example at www.office.com, when I click "sing in" and I set up my credentials, I am still at the same "sign in" page. The problem can be easier understood in the following capture. (excuse the watermark)

I have the same issue with other sites, such as my bank, IRS, etc etc, making firefox practically unusable. Is there any fix for this?

Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

Highlights only shows bookmarks added from Firefox, not those imported from an html file. There is no obvious way to fix this inconvenient behavior and no clear solution here or in other forums.

Moving the bookmarks to different locations in bookmark library has no effect. Obviously, there must be some setting or code that causes this and it should not be the default.

As a nontechnical user I am limited in my ability to find and fix the problem. But from a logical standpoint those highlights are populated from somewhere. Being able to change that location or move the imported bookmarks there should not be an easter-egg hunt.

This seems to be an ongoing and unaddressed issue. It probably persists because, while annoying, after failed attempts to resolve or get the community to address the issue, it becomes easier to just re-add the bookmarks.

As someone giving the browser a shot after deciding Opera was basically adware. This annoyance is a fairly disheartening switching cost.

Any help would be appreciated.

Searching for bookmarks that disappeared, I discovered that my bookmarks are badly messed up. There appears to be two tiers of bookmarks (see image), and I have no idea how it got that way. Is there any way I can merge the 2nd tier back to the main tier? Running latest FF ESR version, Win10PRO 64 bit. Thanks....

I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and the reinstalling Firefox. This did not solve the missing file problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox. This did not solve the problem. The file is still missing. When I click on my Firefox App, all I get is a blank screen. I am unable to use Firefox. This computer uses Windows 10 with a 64 bit. I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

Just recently, I can not login into several websites using "Firefox". With other browsers, I have no problem. For example, whenever I try to login to Evernote , I get the following error: "The page isn’t redirecting properly. An error occurred during a connection to www.evernote.com. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies." I had no prior problems before and I have made no changes to my settings. Apparently, there is something broken in Firefox because no other browsers produce this error. I have already tried the suggested solutions such as clearing history, cache and everything else. I have even uninstalled and re-installed several times but it always eventually returns to this state. Firefox has always been my favorite browser,but if this error can not be fixed, I have no problem dropping it forever and switching to a more reliable browser. Please fix this,don't force me to change browsers.

Suddenly I have very old, deleted bookmarks reappearing in my bookmarks folders. I have to manually re-delete each one individually only to have them all reappear the next time I open Firefox. This has to end. What has Mozilla done? Another thought- if Mozilla does not keep any of our info how are bookmarks that have been deleted for more than 2 years deleted reappearing?

Hi Forum Folke,

Can anyone explain to me why any time I get logged off of my ISP's email service (as in when Windows arbitrarily decides to do an update and reboots), when attempting to log back in to my email account I get a popup warning telling me that, in essence, 'no reputable provider would require this,' and it requires me to override and make the connection?

Nothing has changed with my provider, to the best of my knowledge. Of course, their tech people are blaming T-bird... expected no less.

The other question I have is this: there is a checkbox in the popup window that says "Permanently store this exception", and it's already checked; WHY does T-Bird not store, or not see this stored exception when this occurs? I have to do this every time I get logged off, and there are few things in computer-land that annoy me more than a setting that is totally ignored after it is selected (like Windows updating anyway when I told it not to...)

Is there anything I can do to make this exception "take?" Thanks for any help you might come up with!!
