When my browser updated from 64.0 to 65.0, things got .... changed, even though I never touched my settings.

First: custom theme has to reload, every time I open firefox. Every single time. Second: Even though I have everything search related turned off, I keep getting the search bar below the address bar (where the bookmarks toolbar is). Third: what is this "content blocking"? I don't even have any idea how to set this....

I have Firefox 65.

I've made a very simple Geolocation demo exactly like the example here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Geolocation/getCurrentPosition#Example

Here's the demo: https://demo.footstepsmarketing.com/locator.html

I can confirm that it does work in Firefox 63, but does not in 64 onwards. Any insight would be much appreciated.

Greetings,

I've tried all avenues that normally resolves the issue of unsaved passwords, including cleaning out caches, running in safe mode etc. In fact, I tried two different MacOSX machines, one running running 10.13.8, the other 10.14.1. Nothing works, Firefox does not offer to save credentials. I thought there might be some new HTML trick to disable login saving I'm not aware of but Safari had no problem saving the password. Any suggestions are appreciated.

So I installed Firefox on my computer and I am trying to finish setting up my Firefox account. It keeps asking me to link my phone number and to install Firefox on it, so I did by going onto Google Play Store and installing the browser. Even though I logged onto my Firefox account via my phone, Firefox on my computer still asks me to set it up on my phone. Because of this, I can't finish registering my account.

Even clicking the link that was sent via SMS doesn't work; it opens in Firefox but nothing happens on the other end.

I tried refreshing the awaiting confirmation page, it just brings me back to the page shown in the first image.

I closed Firefox, re-opened it, signed out of my account, and signed back in again. It keeps asking me for a phone number.

I tried all the steps in this article, and it doesn't work either: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/im-having-problems-confirming-my-firefox-account

Here are the screenshots of the pages (uploading them via the form doesn't work)

I am using Firefox at my company computer. I am also using a master password to acsess my data and passwords. The issue is that lots of my personal data is available whoever starts Firefox at my computer. Even before entering my master password, my identity is available. Is there a way to hide my identity at the Firefox menu if I don't enter my master password? Thank you for your support.

Since a recent firefox update gmail is not remembering my username for my email account. I have to input my details each time, rather than just entering the password. By default I have 'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed' selected. Under 'exceptions' I have added 'https://mail.google.com' & 'https://accounts.google.com'. This combination has worked for years until the past few weeks. Any ideas?

I clean-installed Mojave on my iMac (late 2014) last month. Since then, Firefox crashes often on very random moments, but rather during relatively demanding tasks (such as playing YouTube video or uploading to Dropbox). I assume you want any of the crash reports, but please tell me how to first.

Firefox 65.0.2 (64 bit )

When you are using Firefox for windows and you click History and than show all history you have the ability to search for key words. Lets say you type cows and you have clicked on the History tab so it is searching all history . Lets say 4,000 results pop up in your results field. Well if you click on the first result and shift click the last all 4,000 results will be highlighted and if you right click and select delete it takes a very long time and usually the computer freezes and you get script error.... BUT

If you right click on the lets say the today tab or even the January tab ( which you might have 2,000 results for cow in plus thousands other hits ) and click delete it will delete the history for January with no problem. Why would it take so long and make your computer go nuts when you have 4,000 highlighted manually as compared to the ease of just deleting an entire month in 20 seconds ???

Autofill works intermittently in Firefox But refuses to keep me logged in even during the same session.

I've tried refreshing firefox In Privacy & Security I already have" Use custom settings" checked as I've read to do . It's pretty annoying to have to " sign in" constantly.

Please advise why Firefox is degrading not getting better & how I can fix this. Thank you , Patty Windows 7 Pro 64 bit

I been having problems with Firefox ever since I refreshed 65.0.1 losing 6 years of bookmarks, addons and passwords, after 7 hours and I managed to get old files back and had to redo addons and passwords. It became unreliable with copying/paste not working, slowness etc and when I found that it was not updating to latest 65.0.2 I scrapped it and downloaded latest. But cannot get old version of profile back. Instead I have no files showing up in local directory, though root directory is showing *see screenshot. So I have to restart everything from scratch with important passwords and bookmarks etc. It still will not show but closing down firefox it does save and keep customised setup and session etc. Is this normal to vanish on this version?

My computer was working fine. I have toolbars bookmarks to oft used sites that ran along the top portion of my screen. For some reason when i next opened Firefox, the page was only about 4 inches wide and 4 inches high. I could not fully read anything on it but you could see my toolbars were still there. when I go to full screen all my toolbars disappear. I go to the customize option under the three menu lines and it has no effect. Why has this changed and what can I do to restore it.
