In the last 24 hours ish, of some sites I visit, Firefox comes up with 'Network Protocol Error' When I reload the site the error message goes away. It's not doing it on Google or Bing first time. The issue seems inconsistant too.... browsing to sites that caused the issue first time around no longer cause the error message to appear...... This issue has appeared on two desktop machines accessing the internet through same router/gateway with BT as the ISP.

Anyone else seeing this?

I cannot download anything. I cannot install ANY extension. uBlock extension. The only thing that works with so called third-party content -> onto my PC is `save-as`. I am struggling with this for more than a few hours and have tried EVERYTHING. I mean LITERALY EVERYTHING that can be found regarding this. Chromium browser works normally.

Have tried with default firefox-esr that ships with debian, and with Quantum 65 (current) version. Not a single change. I am using Debian (stable) Stretch, and no it is not firewall issue nor it is connection (proxy setup) issue, I strongly believe. Like I said, chromium just - works and I don't have sympathy for chromium nor I would like to gain some.

I am not even unable to upload an images of the issues I am experiencing.

"Uploading "test_download_file.png"..." ... for more than a 10 minutes.

This morning I brought up Firefox on my Win10 64 system as I always do, and immediately hit "ctrl-k" to get the cursor into the "awesome bar" (which is set to all three tick boxes in the privacy & security -> address bar settings.) Usually I enter shortcuts (set in bookmarks, like 'gm' for mail.google.com) so that I don't have to type in the full address. However that didn't work today because every time I hit "ctrl-k" a question mark automatically appears in the "awesome bar". It will search just fine but if I want to go to a web site or use a short cut I have to backspace over the question mark or it will just search for what I'm typing in. I tried clearing everything (ctrl-shift-del, tick all boxes, "for all time") and still the problem persists. I also unchecked all three tick boxes in Privacy & Security -> Address bar and it still happens. Disabled all addons and problem persists. Help! This is seriously getting in the way of my work flow. Please let me know if there's any information that you need. I consider myself a power user so don't be afraid to dive into the weeds if need be.

Thanks!


and I see that it's running 65.0 (new version?).

When I start to type an address in the URL bar, I get a drop down box directly below the url/address bar. The dropdown, which is as wide as my firefox window, contains a little magnifying glass icon and the text "Search with duckduckgo"

I don't want this drop down box at all but I can't seem to disable it.

I do not have anything checked (browsing history, bookmarks, or open tabs) checked under address bar in my privacy and security settings, and I do not have provide search suggestions checked in my search settings.

I tried this solution:

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter/Return. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box above the list, type or paste URLB and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference to switch the value from true to false

when I tried this, the value for the browser.urlbar.autocomplete.enabled preference was already set to false, so this solution didn't help.


I would really appreciate some help removing this drop down. Thank you for reading.

Good day guys ,

Basically what I want is to make facebook.com logout when I close firefox and enter again. This should be possible by just going to >Cookies and site data >Manage permissions and blocking cookies for facebook.com but the problem is this option for firefox is completely useless , doesn't do absolutely anything as I'm still getting cookies saved from facebook.com , therefore every time I open firefox again my facebook is already logged in.

Is there any alternative solutions to this besides checking the box "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" ???

Because I don't want that either...cause that means I have to log into every site separately every time I open again firefox...I only want to do that for Firefox.

Thank you

Version 65.0 moved the tabs back to the top of the window. Why isn't the placement optional?

I just updated my copy of Firefox to version 65.0. Immediately, I noticed that the tab bar has now been moved back to the top of the window, despite the hack I used to move it down. I know that I'm certainly not unique in disliking this location for the tabs toolbar. It makes a lot more sense for that toolbar to be below the bookmarks toolbar. That way, it separates the website content from the program's interface. Does anybody know of a way to move the tabs back down below the bookmarks toolbar? TIA

I tried to login, Firefox would not recognize my password. I clicked on forgot password, didn't get an email. Tried twice. Opened up a new tab, went to login Firefox, put in my email as user name and my old password and it took. This is very confusing. MY Questions was to be: I start my computer (I don't leave it on all night) everything boots up, I click on Firefox icon and from there it takes minimum 40 seconds to 60 seconds to finally appear. Why is it so slow? Never use to be? Thanks for any answers you can give.

At one point with this new firefox headache I managed to get my tabs on bottom but I had to do a refresh in order to get into my outlook email cause of a glitch.

Now I can't manage to get my tabs to go under the address bar. I did the whole chrome folder with the userchrome.css thing but I still cant get my tabs to go below my address bar.

Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Its driving me up the wall not being able to have the browser how I want it.

I just updated to Firefox 65 and suddenly my tabs are once again up in the gods. How do I get them down below the bookmarks toolbar and address bar? I've tried Userchrome and followed the 2017 video (which was very lcear by the way) that was recommended in Firefox support but it didn't work and I'm at my wits end. I hate this tabs on top thing and just want to put it back where it belongs. Please help?

I experienced a Windows 10 bootup issue and decided to restore my Windows 10 OS from a (10-days previous) OS configuration. This corrected my Win10 boot issue, but when I ran FireFox it requested that I logon to my FireFox sync account to update my bookmarks. After logging in, nearly 4 years (hundreds) of well-organized bookmarks were gone and just a couple of bookmarks appeared.

I have a FireFox account with both my PC and Phone listed. When viewing the "FireFox Account" page, there doesn't seem to be anyway to view the state or status any files being maintained by the FF account. I am wondering if the the FF sync process somehow moved the few bookmarks on my phone onto my PC. (Note: I noticed my PC appears to be listed twice on the device list.)

I do have full backups of my PC available from a few months ago. So I either need to: 1) figure out if my "full" bookmarks set is recoverable from my FireFox account... or 2) I need instructions on how to bring back most of my FF bookmarks from a full PC backup from a few months ago.

Thanks for your assistance!
