my uBlock is on but ads still play on youtube my stylish doesn't have any of the styles i've installed anymore and every time i try to install a new one firefox freezes firefox color no longer automatically applies my theme (i have to go find the website and select it) and i lost the ability to load outlook.com/owa but thanks to a trick another user here (FredMcD) taught me (Manage data/Forget this site) i was able to regain access to it.

Also I would hope that it goes without saying but any responses suggesting Resets/Nukes will be ignored and reported. Let's try to work together to get this issue sorted out.

I'm in Firefox 76.0.1 64 bit for Ubuntu 18.04. From a script javascript I open a new tab with mywindow= window.open(). Later when user click a button this page should be closed with mywindow.close() but it doesn't work because the mywindow page results already closed (mywindow.closed results true and though if I run mywindow.close() the page remains open. The page is created with window.open() from the script thereby should be legal to close that page. Here is the code: jsfiddle code I observed that later I allow the popup and I run again the code it works with the jsfiddle. Furthermore others users seem don't have my same problem thus I think could be a setting problem. Flipping dom.allow_scripts_to_close_windows in about:config to true don't change the situation. I have the same problem with the same version of Firefox in Window 10. With the browser Google Chrome the code works properly. Here is the early version of my question on stackoverflow: early question

Kindly someone could point me if this could be a bug or a setting problem or other, and anyway how to fix it?

Occassionally, but reproducable enough Firefox gets the wrong ip address for images that are loaded. It happens in firefox for mac/linux/windows and from multiple locations. It never happens in Chrome/Safari.

https://ov1.flamingtext.com/a2.html

Load the above page, if you see "CoolLogo.com" then the bug has shown itself. If it doesn't happen, reload.

What is crazy is that it only happens for these ov10 and ov11 machines, and they get the other's ip.


I know what you are thinking, it's my DNS or something odd about my setup. Either on the client or server. But I believe I've eliminated that possibility. I'm still suspicious that we are doing something wrong, but when I see the wrong IP address in the dev tool, I'm not sure where else to look.

geoipdns config (authorative dns is ns1/ns2/n3.registerbot.com which I control). +ov10-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.56:1200 #ov10 +ov11-engine.flamingtext.com:51.79.78.58:1200 #ov11 (there are no other entries), and true for all three name servers.

confirmed with dig, nslookup and ping. from multiple locations around the world. with at least 5 different ISP's. There are no entries in my /etc/hosts. The ip address is always correct. It's only wrong in firefox.

Any ideas?

I have seen similar requests but they all seem to go down some dirt road and leave the topic.

First the issue I am having is with Firefox v72 on the Windows 10 computer provided by work. This company has thousands of employees and the IT department is not responsive.

My issue: Every time I launch Firefox a pop-up window appears telling me that Firefox can't update to the latest version. This message reappears periodically throughout the day. I would like to prevent this or at least have it occur 1 time a week or month. I have tried adjusting the advanced settings but nothing seems to fix this issue and frankly I do not even see a change in the duration of the message.

Now before the folks concerned about security "recommend" that I should update to the latest version because it is the safest and best version, please understand that I do know. A large office with many users, OSes, computers, apps in use apparently does not have the flexibility needed to keep the Firefox browser happy. I certainly can't force the IT department to update Firefox (I have asked).

I'd love for Mozilla to give us control of this feature again, but I am not counting on it. So I am hoping that someone reading this has found a solution that will work for V72 of Firefox.

Each browser has issues, this one is minor, an annoyance for me. My continuing to use this browser depends on more than this issue. When I consider Pros and Cons of this browser this goes in the Cons column.

I made a fresh, clean install of the most current Firefox 76.0.1. When launching it, it force closes after a few seconds.

There is no Crash Helper popup afterwards.

This issue does not occur with Firefox 74 and previous versions. The issue "does" occur when using the most current Firefox as a PortableApp.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise (1809), build number 17763.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me, because as it stands, I can't update Firefox.

Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

This started last week when i migrated to a new iMac.

I went through all of the troubleshooting steps described in the article above but still no suggestions in the address bar.

I'd like to continue using Firefox but this is a deal breaker. What can i do?

When I try to edit my Squarespace site in Firefox 76.0.1, the elements do not behave correctly. I've had to use Chrome to manage my site instead. Squarespace was unable to help, so I was hoping someone here might be able to help! Firefox is infinitely better than Chrome and I'd much rather use it for my site editing.

The specific issue is that when I add a text block to a page, I am unable to actually add, select, or edit text. The cursor doesn't change to a text cursor, either. I've tried in a private tab to no avail and disable all add-ons.

Can anyone help?

Hello! I am running firefox-esr version 68.5.0esr-1+b1 (from Debian testing) with a bunch of extensions (ublock origin, multi containers, suspend tab, open in browser, all in one sidebar, etc). Yesterday, I was suddenly unable to start firefox. I can see the profile manager and start another older profile, but not the one I really need to open. When I start from a terminal, I see this error message most of the time:

 ###!!! [Child][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I have created a new profile and started it with success; after copying all files from the faulty profile, the new one does not start.

I have tried to run with safe mode: still does not start.

I have found https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/426502/firefox-keeps-crashing-upon-launch/466522 which doesn't help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile shows me how to copy bookmarks and cookies over. (I am not using any synchronization service.) I would very much like not losing my session (open tabs), but I don't know which file or database is holding it.

I would prefer not to have to spend a lot of time reinstalling and reconfiguring all extensions, but maybe it will be necessary. Thanks for any help troubleshooting this.
