Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

Thunderbird has stopped getting messages from my Gmail account on startup and later automatically. I can still get them manually by clicking on Get Messages. All my Server Settings in Thunderbird are set to get messages on startup and automatically. My Gmail settings are also enabled for all POP mail and have not changed. This is a recent issue. Is this a bug in the recent update?

I currently run Windows 8.1 on my laptop. I upgraded to Firefox 73 a couple of days ago, and now when I open Firefox, I immediately get an error box and the message that "Firefox has stopped working". I have uninstalled Firefox, rebooted my laptop and reinstalled Firefox, but get the same results. I also uninstalled 3 Microsoft KB updates that ran on the day that Firefox initially failed. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I also run Google Chrome, and have not issues with it. Here are the details of the problem: Problem signature:

I am using Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I have noticed the following.

When I quit the Firefox app (no background activity), and I click on a link that I receive in an email (from my Mail app), then Firefox opens 2 windows. One is empty and the second leads to the desired link.

On the other hand, if I don't quit the Firefox app but simply close it (x symbol), then when I click on a link it open correctly in a single window.

As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

I had been a Firefox user for a very long time. And I used to store all my passwords in Firefox Lockwise. Everything was good until one day my computer froze while I was using Firefox. I had no other choice, but to restart my computer. After I restarted my device I found that Lost all my passwords. I tried many ways to get them back, but nothing worked. The thing that makes more confused is that all the password are still there in android Lockwise, But I could'nt sync it to my computer. I tried a lot and failed. Then I thought I will just start over and every time I wanted to login to something I would look in my phone and save it on my computer, I thought eventually I will get everything as before. But after a month same thing happened again. Still my passwords are safe on my phone, which has the same Firefox account as my computer, But my on my computer it shows "I have no passwords saved".. I tried all ways to sync my computer to my phone, Failed. I tried to change the 'login.jason.corrupt' file. Failed to work. So , what am I supposed to do to get the passwords back on my computer. Or get my android lockwise to sync with my computer. I am using Firefox on Ubuntu.

Thanks in advance..

it is said here that synced data is encrypted to save privacy and protect against identity theft . https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-lockwise-and-privacy

but if the synced data is encrypted by device A and sent to mozilla server for saving, how does device B able to decrypted the data received from mozilla after signing in ? this can be possible only if the encryption happens at mozilla server side and not the device itself .

doesn't this means mozilla server as well able to decrypt the data and read it ? so you can read all my passwords i synced through you ?

How do I get rid of the "Download the new Microsoft Edge" banner that keeps popping up in Firefox? I have checked for solutions on the web and have already gone into Windows 10 settings and disabled the "Get notifications from apps" option, and unchecked the "Get tips, tricks and suggestions" box.

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

Since I updated to 77.0.1 firefox has for unknown reason has concluded that there is a system administrator which has disabled updates. It says so in setting (topleft) and in about firefox (instead of update button). I have been able to change all other settings that I know of. I have also refreshed the browser once, disabled all addons once, and deinstalled it to reinstall the latest version once.

Is there a solution for this bug?
