The firefox installation on my desktop is not able to render anything.

Even the about:preferences window is not able to show anything both under my account and a new account I made. I even attempted to update to a new version of my distro (Pop OS) in an attempt to fix it.

My Firefox account is able to do a sync (shows up in the dropdown) so it does not have to do with proxies. Chromium also works fine.

I would rather not have to use Chromium so any help will be appreciated. I have tried running firefox in safe mode and doing a "Refresh".

I keep having problems with Firefox not loading certain pages despite that Microsoft Edge works fine. I've cleared my cache and cookies, tried disabling my firewall, and also tried Safe/troubleshooting mode and the problem was still there. Facebook Messenger and Google Hangouts are two of the ones that regularly don't work (and sometimes Submittable, Outlook, and Google Docs), but sometimes I can just refresh the page half a dozen times and then it works. I moved and switched internets two weeks ago and it may have started then (or a few days after). I also tried turning off the proxy and disabling Ipv6.

My comp: Windows 10, 64-bit, HP laptop, new in December 2019. Processor: AMD Ryzen 3 3200U with Radeon Vega Mobile Gfx.

Recently switched from Chrome to Firefox on macOS, and I'd always open PDFs directly in Chrome. I've set my default PDF viewer to Firefox but when I open any downloaded PDFs from Finder, they go directly to a new Firefox window instead of a new tab (as I'm used to from Chrome).

Any way around this? I'd love to have any offline PDFs to be opened in a new tab by default, but nothing has worked so far.

I am unable to open my Firefox on my computer because I receive a message saying that my computer cannot find the following file: vcruntime140_1.dll. I have tried uninstalling Firefox, and the reinstalling Firefox. This did not solve the missing file problem. I have tried re-installing Firefox. This did not solve the problem. The file is still missing. When I click on my Firefox App, all I get is a blank screen. I am unable to use Firefox. This computer uses Windows 10 with a 64 bit. I have several other computers, with Firefox installed, and I do not have this problem on any other computers using either Windows 10, Windows XP, or with a recent version of Linux. What procedure can I follow to restore this missing file to this computer? Your help would be greatly appreciated. I have some knowledge of computers, but I lack technical knowledge. Any help you can give will be deeply appreciated. Thank you

one of my google accounts, which I have been able to sign in through firefox for years, suddenly started giving me an error message after entering my email address on the google sign in page. I have another google account and I'm able to sign i using firefox just fine. The error message given is:

I'm using a windows 7 box and Firefox 85.0.2.

I'm able to sign in just fine when I use google chrome. I've cleared cache and data in the browser. I'm not sure what else to try. Any suggestions? Any other information I can provide to help identify the problem?

Tried to sign up to Disney plus but receive an error - "We're having trouble loading a legal document for you to review..." and it says to go to the Disney plus page and view error 66 (yeah I know lol - but wishing doesn't make you a jedi).

The page advises to delete history and cookies etc which I have but I think it's another issue. I have also disabled adblock. I have included a screen shot of the console errors in the hope that this will help with advice. I am trying on my recently new laptop as my prior one has a corrupted drive and needs some work and time for me to fix.. I also tried on that laptop which uses fire fox but received the same error. I have tried on edge on this computer but get the same error. I have not tried on my mobile and may do so but I would like a possible solution to this. I have norton running but I don't know how to disable it and not sure if this is the issue. My internet is not bad so I don't think it's an Internet issue.

Any advice or suggestions would be welcome. - thanks.

Hi. Been having nothing but huge hassles trying to get Firefox to do anything with letting the website access my webcam. I've already read a bunch of articles on this but still no luck getting it to work. I keep putting in the url of the website, pressing enter, but firebox will never show the website in the box below it like your help section said would happen. I have used both the actual url from the website page which is asking me to connect my cam, and I have also shortened that web address to just the website's main address, but still nothing happens when I out that address into the camera setting's search box and then press enter ( I attached 2 screen capture images if that). I have even doubled checked the web address and copy n pasted it into the camera settings search box, pressed enter, but still nothing shows in the box down below it. I have Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit in case that matters

Hey!

So I want to watch livestreams on YouTube (Overwatch League to be more precise). The problem is, that the stream starts to lag really hard when I watch it on 1080p or higher. I don't have that problem with videos, just with livestreams and my PC is not bad, my CPU, RAM or GPU are not even close to their limit as far as I can tell. Still, it doesn't work in Firefox but it does in Microsoft Edge. I definitely prefer Firefox over Edge but right now I have to use Edge to watch streams in HD+. I already came across a solution from 2019 where it said I need to install an addon, which would fix the problem but limits the quality to 1080p (https://support.mozilla.org/de/questions/1245735). However I thought maybe two years later there is a solution that allows me to watch streams in 2K and I mean Edge makes it possible too so I figured I'd just ask.

Thanks for your time Noah

This question was asked and answered seven years ago, but the answer is no longer valid. An "upgrade" has subsequently removed or hidden the setting that previously fixed the problem.

When I am using a website that has right-click menus, Firefox's own right-click context menu pops up and covers the one I actually want. How do I either (1) make Firefox's menu pop up somewhere else (preferably), or (2) temporarily disable it.

Dear community, I have Firefox installed on Windows with serveral user profiles. I understand that firefox caches certain inormation in the Firefox/<profile name>/cache2 directories. I know, how to clear these directories. But there is also one cache2 directory next to the profile directories directly in the Firefox folder. This directory also contains several thousand files, which seem to be updated in a similar manner as the cache2 folders in the various profile directories. I would like to know, which information is stored in that "common" cache2 and how it can be cleared. Thanks

I use a Logitech MX Master 3 mouse, without any custom Logitech or other mouse software. When I press the mouse's back/forward buttons, instead of navigating back/forward, Firefox enter Scroll Mode (more info here). This is the same behaviour as when pressing the middle mouse button. However, I already have the middle mouse button for that! I want the back/forward buttons on the mouse to navigate back/forward. See the attached image for the back and forward buttons I'm referring to: they're directly under the horizontal scroll wheel.

Is there a way for Firefox to register the back/forward button presses as back/forward navigation commands?

Hi, I have lost the "file, edit, history, bookmark ect" I have tried to resolve this myself but all the help on the forum starts with click on the "3 vertical bars" I do not have this option, all I have is 3 dots which directs to "settings" which offers no help for the bookmark toolbar ? I have trolled the FF help pages but they all say the same thing to start with the "3 bar" icon. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I've been using FF for 9yrs and have had no problems at all.

I seem to be having issues with bookmarks randomly appearing on my toolbar. I am on a new installation and know it is not due to any malware. It's beginning to get annoying to have to consistently delete bookmarks that I did not want. My assumption right now is that I am somehow dragging a link onto the bookmarks toolbar as anything else that adds bookmarks is adding at the end, where these bookmarks are showing up in the middle, plus any other option to add bookmarks shows a popup box. Oddly enough it can sometimes be multiples of the same webpage I visted and I don't remember ever touching the address bar. Is there another way firefox can add bookmarks in the middle of the toolbar? Also is there a way I can "Lock" the toolbar, not allowing any more bookmarks to be added unless I unlock it? Recently made the switch from chrome and this is the only real issue I have.

In the last few weeks I have been experiencing frequent crashes. That means at least once a day. Most of the times when I submit the report and restart firefox I lose all my tabs, which is very annoying since I generally have around ten open all the time - for a reason. My husband also experiences these crashes on his laptop. There is no new software installed, nothing has changed on/in either of the computers, firefox is up to date. I need my browser to be dependable, the crash is one thing, the loss of the tabs is intolerable.
