When viewing any tiktok account profile page, for example this one , the videos do not show up, and says "Something went wrong, Sorry about that! Please try again later."

Here's what i did:

  1. Created new Firefox profile with default settings and no extensions
  2. Visited a TikTok profile, and saw it opens as expected
  3. Changed privacy.resistFingerprinting to true
  4. Refreshed the TikTok profile page, and the error message shows up

I opened the console and compared and there were new warnings:

  • Blocked https://www.tiktok.com/@tiktok from extracting canvas data because no user input was detected.
  • Get user detail failed for getting wrong response

And 3 errors, when there were 0 before, all three read

  • Uncaught TypeError: _0x5e9eb8[_0x2bd187] is null

Firefox has always maintained that current tabs will be restored after a reboot of the browser, and indeed that was the case for the first half-dozen years I've been a subscriber. That has not been the case for the past 4 - 6 months however. I have the correct Settings for this, so it is not on my end. Why do I always get a fresh Firefox browser whenever I update the version (which is quite regular lately . . . maybe a new version of Firefox every 3 weeks). Please help.

Hi Support,

I have always been struggling with the idea of syncing two devices, that is main and secondary devices, and that when logged out of the secondary device, user details such as passwords, booksmarks and other important things are left bare on that browser or secondary device.

It is my believe that, after completing whatever task that led users to sync both devices, the moment the user logs out on the secondary computer, or any of the computers, the passwords, bookmarks, history and other essential details should not display again on such computer or browser anymore but apparently thats not the case with Mozilla Firefox browser.

Kindly look into that and work on it....THE SECURITY AND SAFETY OF THE USER IS LEFT WIDE OPEN!!!

I followed the instructions at [[Unload inactive tabs to save system memory in Firefox|https://mzl.la/3AdRbLx]] but I still occasionally see the tab refresh when I select it. I start with a search on Bing, click an article to open a tab, follow links from there, back to the first tab and select another. I repeat this until there are several tabs open. Sometimes the page refreshes when I switch back to one that I previously reviewed. Is that controlled by the option browser.tabs.unloadOnLowMemory? if so, it doesn't appear to be working. [Edit] - The last time this happened I checked my system and found 10gig used of 64gig installed. I'm using the most current version of FF 120.0.1 on Windows 11 Pro v 22H2.

In the last three or four weeks, while typing a reply in gmail or making a comment in Youtube, for instance, a console window pops up at the bottom of the screen. Very annoying. Never happened until recently. I can't figure out how to make it stop. I will NEVER need to use the console window.

I have been having with YouTube for a couple of days. It asks to turn off ad blockers. I have done so and it still requests to turn ad blockers and still won't allow viewing. YouTube works on other browsers.

I am sure YouTube is playing games but can you help?

Hi My computer crashed today and it had to be it reformatted. I have updated the computer but i want to update my bookmarks. How do i access / restore my booksmarks from yesterday? At the moment I cannot see any of my old bookmarks all i have is the bookmarks that come with when you install firefox.

I am logged into firefox but i cannot see my old search history or find any of my old bookmarked folders.

Please help me, I thought firefox was looking after my bookmarks when i was logging in.

Thank you

Hello,

On the webpage https://www.drivethrurpg.com/pub_tools.php Firefox breaks. Image here for reference: https://imgur.com/a/382kw9L. The area in red in the first image is an error.

From the console I saw that the website is shifted to Quirks Mode.

From a discussion with their support they said that this is a Firefox issue, as the website does indeed work fine in Chrome and Edge.

Not sure why this is triggering Quirks Mode.

In the same imgur album (above) you can see that the page has a proper doctype HTML header.

Any ideas?

I'm a hiker and backpacker. I have recently begun using AllTrails.com to record my hikes making them easier to share with others as well as to save them for my own records. Everything works fine except uploading photos. This aspect of the app does not work at all in Firefox. It does work with MS Edge and Google neither of which I want to use.
