This morning my Sony laptop crashed. Fortunately, I have an HP that has not long been repaired under guarantee. All I have done up to today is make sure it works OK and add Mcafee security.

I am now using this and have succesfully installed several programmes including Firefox.

I have been through this process many times, having bought my first laptop in 1991. for virtually all that time I have used Firefox and always synced successfully on many occassions.

So I never thought I would have a problem today but, no matter what I have tried. I have had no success.

Hi, everyone, I'm pretty new around here. I installed Savefrom.net helper and it installed an addon and a bookmark in my browser. Then I uninstalled it from my PC and uninstalled the addon. But the bookmark is still there. Everytime I close and reopen Firefox it is stays there and it's pretty annoying tbh. I tried starting in Safe Mode and two antivirus programs (Malwarbyte and Avast). No help. What can I do?

How can I sign up for Mozilla (firefox) forum?

I have an account, but won't recognize my credentials. They ARE correct.

I try to set up a new account and the security question "how many letters in Mozilla" doesn't work. The answer is 7, but says it's wrong. WFT?

This all started while I was trying to open Spotify in Firefox. It kept telling me I need to enable secure playback. So I checked and "Play DRM-controlled content" is enabled. I did some googling to see what could be the problem. Turns out I need Google Widevine enabled, so I check the plugins page where I find out I don't even have Widevine installed. I also checked the default profile folder (root directory) to see if there's even a gmp-widevinecdm folder there but I couldn't find anything.

Is there a way for me to reinstall Widevine without having to create a new profile?

Hi dear Community Members, formerly when I opened a link in an email from my Outlook account, it opened in a Tab exactly next to it. But now it goes beyond several tabs which were already there. How can I get these links again opened in a Tab right next to it. That makes it easier to go from my email to that tab and back, I find.

Hope that I described this clear.

Thanx, Jan

hi folks,

Is it possible to restore a firefox profile to a new install from previously synced profiles ? I have several different profiles of firefox running on a few machines. On one of them I had to format the SSD but forgot to save to settings. When logging into the firefox account I see a list of all my machines but I don't see an option to recover settings from any of them

I would be eternally grateful for any help.

Thank you !

Firefox CPU usage increases dramatically while playing YouTube videos full-screen

I'm using Firefox v 83.0 on Manjaro (Gnome) Linux. YouTube videos in theater/full-screen mode lag if resolution is higher than 360p and cause the CPU usage to burst. This happens for large web pages as well: when I scroll the page, text overlaps and everything is terribly slow. I've checked and this seems to be a Firefox related problem; videos play smoothly both on VLC and Chromium. I've tried all official troubleshooting suggestions: changing to default theme, refreshing Firefox, starting in safe-mode, disabling extensions, disabling hardware acceleration and so on, with no success. I've never had any problems with Firefox for Linux before and I wonder what could be the cause.

I attached screenshots for comparison of CPU usage for the same video playing in theater mode in Firefox and Chromium.

Hi, my Firefox Menu bar always randomly stops responding... the "Apple" Menu & the "Firefox" Menu (About, Prefs., Hide/Show, Quit both still work, but not the rest of the Firefox menus (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, Help)... those randomly become unresponsive, then total stop when using Firefox...)

Is there a setting in Firefox, or is there a way using Apple's Activity Monitor, or a Terminal command to force a restart of the Menu bars? this is getting very annoying LOL

The browser simply refuses to save such personal preferences anymore, up until the last update this hasn't been an issue. Before i updated youtube would remember to use dark mode and disable autoplay without fail, now i have to reset these preferences every time i open a new youtube tab. When i open a new tab on youtube the screen starts as if it were in dark mode and then smash-cuts to light mode with autoplay as soon as the video and recommended thumbnails load up. This doesn't happen on Chrome, and when i set my system preferences in the windows options menu it does default to dark mode (but i really hate the systemwide dark mode there).

I could really use some help here if anyone is able to, half of my browsing youtube is in the dead of night and i really don't need the added eye strain every time i want to watch a new video outside of my queue.

i have one url that everytime I click on the tab, or close it completely, and type it in again, it always opens up at 30% zoom.

I can get rid of it easily by clicking on the 30% in the url window but it is completely annoying.

I am not sure how i did it in the first place and i am wondering how to get rid of it, or at least change it so it doesnt come back.

Whenever there's an update after I turn on my computer and go onto Firefox my start page is changed from what I had it last to Bing.com. I don't know what causes it all I'm sure of is that either Mozilla Updates or Windows Updates cause it because before then Firefox works fine.
