I just started having this problem a few days ago prior to the latest FF update. I'll be browsing around and on some websites, all the sudden when I click on a navigation link, I get this Access Denied error. I've tried disabling all add-ons, totally shutting down my VPN, double checked my firewall settings, cleaned out my cookies and internet cache and even updated FF to the current version.I know these few websites (so far) are active, so after doing more researching, I've come here to see if anybody else has any ideas. I would appreciate it

it will literally stop working, no refresh, no navigation, sites fail to load properly sometimes all controls in the ui refuse to respond at all. The fix is always to shut down firefox, then on restart the new update installs and everything is fine. I find this as unacceptable as win 10 deciding it wants to reboot while you're working. This problem seems really intentional on mozilla's part and I the user should determine when I am done using the browser and ready to install an update, not the browser itself.

I had to send my computer in. Before I did I downloaded file that saved ALL my Firefox passwords and bookmarks, and I opened both files to make sure they downloaded before wiping out my computer. I also opened a Firefox account to save the information but it demanded a cell phone which I don't have. Today as I'm reinstalling everything I see the two files I saved from Firefox are gone. Also my account does not have anything saved. I regret relying on password fill as now I will be locked out of ALL my accounts. Can anything be done?

After latest Windows 10 update (2004 or I don't know firefox is telling me I have Windows_NT 10.0 19041 so who knows) about month ago and after that Firefox keeps randomly crashing into desktop. It happens about 6-7 times in a hour! 95% of the time even crash report doesn't show up so I can't send my crash report to firefox. I have updated Firefox, downgraded it, disabled all add-ons I have tried that "media.wmf.vp9.enabled" trick and it doesn't work

What to do? I like firefox and I dont want to use Edge or Chrome. Is reinstalling Windows my only option?

Please help

This is a pretty weird problem. When I go to download a PDF from our company's website, Firefox is asking if I want to open it or download it, and here is what happens with both options:

  • Open -- It identifies the document as HTML and presents the raw PDF data (it becomes file.pdf.html)
  • Download -- It downloads the file correctly as a pdf, and calls it file.pdf. The file can then be opened and correctly rendered as a PDF.

I'm assuming it is an issue with the response header-- either it is malformed or non-standard, or maybe it is just Firefox being wonky. IE, Edge, and Chrome have no problem with it.

The mime type is application/pdf, and we are using a Content-disposition: attachment; filename="file.pdf".

Hopefully this is an easy issue to fix, but this is out of my normal realm of programming. The Firefox users where I work know to download the offending files instead of immediately opening them, it would just be nice to actually fix the issue.

Oh, in case it helps, part of the HTTP response header that we are sending is telling the browser to treat the file like an attachment, so the other browsers just save it.

Thanks for any insight and help!

Hello. After a reinstallation of W10, I imported in Firefox the file "bookmarks.html" that I saved before this installation. Usually it works very well, but this time, there are no more bookmarks in my menu after the import than before ! It looks as there was nothing in my file Bookmarks.html, however I am sure that this file is complete because I verified it in Excel (.csv). What happens ?... Thank you by advance to the community !

I am using Firefox 81.0.2 (64 bit) on a Windows 10 computer. A couple days ago, my address bar started showing up as yellow with grey text. (Admittedly, I was in the options before that and likely did it to myself). But now I can not read what is in the URL/Address bar without highlighting everything. I have been looking ever since then to somehow reset it back to it's default view, but can't seem to find where to do that. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

Why can't i delete my browsing history manually anymore? The only thing i can do is delete pages one by one, not a few at a time, as i used to. I don't want to delete all of my browsing history of the last days or want to delete pages completely from my history. Just would like to, for example, delete a few pages i visited while searching for a product and now getting drowned in ads about them... For me clearing the browsing history manually worked fine. Is there any way to do it like this now?

Hello Everyone,

Last Friday (10/16/20) I opened a pdf file from a link that expired at the end of the day. I believe I clicked "open" instead of "save" and was able to view the pdf from the browser with a URL destination leading to a directory in my computer. No sweat, its on the computer... I figured I can access it later on. Today I look in my temp folder (URL destination) and my downloads, and can't find the file. I go to my firefox Library and see that the file is in the "downloads" section. However, it says that the file is moved or missing, and I don't remember moving or deleting this file...

Any idea what firefox did with this file? Is there any way i can restore it or restore firefox history containing the file data? Appreciate any help. Thank You.
