I found a folder in my trash bin named "Recovery files" with files titled "(A Document Being Saved By FirefoxCP 120)".

I did not move this file in the trash. It's 09.14.18 today; looking into the folder, I noticed that it began saving files starting at 09.09.18.

Can someone explain what's happening?

OS X Mojave (full release) - FF freezes if trying to rename a file to save

Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) OS X Mojave - 10.14 - live public full release (i.e. not the Beta) MacBook Pro, with menu bar

Example: Using Google, go to Images tab. Right click on an image and select "Save image as". If you click on the file name, as you want to change the name, FF freezes.

Not only does it freeze but right clicking on the icon in the Dock only shows "Quit" (not Force quit) and that does nothing. Furthermore, it locks you out from being able to use the Apple symbol (top left) to get to "Force quit" that way. Only solution I have found so far is a forced reboot (i.e. power off/on).

I can reproduce this every time.

If anyone wants more info just let me know what you want to know. I suspect that, given Mojave has only been live a few hours, that a lot more people might run into this in the coming days.

In the interim it has cleared the sign-in info my 1Password program has entered on the first loading. This has happened through many Firefox updates, but as yet hasn't been fixed. The support pages don't address this issue. I am using a 2017 iMac with OS 10.13.6

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hello! Long time Firefox user here, first time poster. From my UX, I've noticed FF History and Address Bar search of previously visited pages' behavior changes. I hope I'm not the only one. This happened ~1yr ago (maybe when I updated to version 57) but I couldn't quite put my finger on the issue.

TLDR: Why is FF History displaying google URLs instead of the actual webpage they point to? (SEE IMAGE BELOW)

I.E.: It shows the URL: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&ved=2ahUKEwjZvozs58bdAhUry4UKHWXCCuQQFjABegQICRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fstackoverflow.com%2Fquestions%2F18387490%2Fhow-do-i-convert-a-height-of-an-element-given-in-vh-to-pixels&usg=AOvVaw0rqvnKA5FEqhaMQIV4gpXo

Instead of the one it points to: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18387490/how-do-i-convert-a-height-of-an-element-given-in-vh-to-pixels



Why does this make a difference? I can't search for keywords such as "how convert height element" like I used to !!

Is this a known issue? PLEASE FIX THIS :)

On just about any web page I work on, after this recent upgrade to 60.2.1esr on my Macbook Pro, I cannot find the text input boxes. There is no outline visible at all until I click somewhere inside the "invisible" box to make it visible. This tiresome... And additionally, the colors seem so washed out - tables and spreadsheets are so hard to read now! I tried some of the available themes but they didn't help any.

I have an iMac. Operating system is High Sierra 10.13.6. Firefox was running slowly today and a pop up window came up on the bottom of my screen and gave me the option of "refreshing" Firefox. I hit the refresh button, and it was taking FOREVER to refresh Firefox, so I clicked out of it (the little red button) mid-refresh. Ever since then, when I try to open Firefox, I get a message stating that Firefox cannot be opened because my profile is missing or deleted. Shortly after this happened, a folder appeared on my desktop titled "Old Firefox Data" which contains about 60 items. I did not create this folder. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. I have also tried starting my iMac in safe mode, then restarting in regular mode. Was on the phone with Apple Tech Support for over an hour and they were unable to help. They are aware of the "Old Firefox Data" folder but they didn't know what to do with it. I am not tech or computer savvy. Other people have posted this exact question before, and answers have been provided, however I don't understand the answers or the instructions that supposedly solve this problem. This is why I'm asking this question again. I am hoping someone can help and provide a simplified answer or simplified instructions to solve this problem. Thank you.

Firefox hangs when I open a new tab or new webpage. It's really annoying!

Everytime I do the automatic updates this shit happens. I used to go to one of the articles where it gave me instructions on how to reset my preferences, but that thread has since been modified, it now says to delete my pref.js, but that doesn't fix the issue anymore.

So i'm resorting to actually making a god damn account and asking why this shit keeps happening. I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed aswell, but it saved some of my data which I kinda need (bookmarks). That doesn't help.

I know that resetting my preferences back to default every update used to fix it, but I forget how now. Thanks...

Can someone just tell me how to fix it so I can update without having to do all this shit again.

I have only one extension and that is adblockerplus. Not likely the cause as it does this aswell without.

It just floats there until I close it, button upper left of console. I am not a developer but I followed the instructions to fix this, as posted in here a year ago (almost exactly). The instruction to "right click" is irrelevant ... what to click? there is a list of hundreds of entries, some default, many modified. I haven't modified anything, I swear. Started about a week ago, update before last (last was within last 36 hours).

After the last couple of updates, Firefox now gets stuck when I try to watch a video withing an article on the nytimes.com web site; I just get a little arrow going around in an endless circle. In the past, videos would play o.k.

So in order to view a video, I must copy and paste the link into a Chrome browser, where the video plays immediately.

When I asked the NYTimes web support tech about it, he replied, "Certain browsers have issues supporting the NYT. We recommend using Google Chrome to view the NYT content if possible."

Why does Chrome play videos perfectly and Firefox not at all on this important site?

I have no problems with Firefox playing videos at other sites.

Here's an example page. No show with Firefox, o.k. with Chrome.

I started out trying to install the Dragon dictation add on and that kept being blocked (or at least that was what I was told). Interestingly, I am now using Dragon dictation on the Mozilla website without a dictation box. Does that mean it will work throughout Firefox? However, when I was trying to login for support I could not get in. I asked for a reset of username and password via the clickable links, but nothing arrived. I just solve before making this email that my initial password may not have been proper because it did not include a number. I don't remember that being a problem yesterday when I first signed up. Please help.
