So at home I use 2 x browsers: Chrome & Firefox, with FF being my default browser. Ive also been using both browsers at work, until now cos they now "manage" our Chrome on all PC's. Ive exported my Chrome passwords to .csv and removed all my passwords that are not work related. Ive signed out of syncing Chrome on my work PC. Ive removed all my bookmarks (except for work) and cleared all my browser history, cache etc "all time". What Ive noticed now when Ive opened my Firefox that any bookmark folders have been removed simultaneously, and if i add anything on my FF, it auto adds to the Chrome browser. What else do I need to do here please? Im drawing a blank as to what else I need to do....

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

I am using Firefox 76.0.1 (64 bit) on a new windows 10 system.

I am on a website that has monthly statements for me and trying to bring the current one up.

If popups are blocked I get a popup error. If popups are NOT blocked, I get nothing other than a quick flicker of the screen.

This website is working fine in Edge.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I think this is a bug, but thought I'd ask here first.

On FireFox 76.0.1, Windows 10, 64 bit

This is not resolving (names changed for privacy)

none

The URL resolves correctly when used alone. Clicking View Image on the browser right mouse menu on the alt ('none') link also resolves correctly. According to the dev console Network tab, it's not even trying to access the specified URL, and hovering over it on the Inspector tab reports "Cannot load image"

The page containing that image definition works correctly in Chrome, Edge beta, and Opera.

Thanks! Dan

Odd. I have been a dedicated user Firefox browser for years, and one day it comes to a grinding halt. Not sure how or why this happened. Did someone have a bad day, and decided that that was the day that every Firefox user had to have a password to use the software? I lost all my bookmarks because apparently my password (which I did not have) was the only way to access them and resetting my password meant of course they are gone. Really sad, as the Chrome browser is a pig - why does EVERY web site you ever accessed have to stay open?? Weird!! Is there a description somewhere of how to navigate the new Firefox. I have tried to get somewhere using the 3 boxes that open in the initial screen but they are dead ends. Odd but then most of the stuff I see is "Intuitive". I will be 75 in a week, so I don't do intuitive!! Help. Jim

I have a website that I log into for work that needs a username and password. I was able to get into this website just fine yesterday. Since then, Windows 10 bricked itself with the latest update so after erasing the hard drive and reinstalling, I downloaded Firefox and signed back into my Mozilla account. After everything got sync'd, that's when the problem began. When I put my credentials into the website and hit submit, the form fields just clear themselves out and no error message appears. I tried logging into this website with my phone, Chrome, and even Edge with no problems. I went into my Firefox history and clicked "forget this site" and I even got desperate and reset Firefox just a moment ago. So, it's just Firefox that's suddenly having problems as of yesterday. Any ideas?
