Firefox fully updated for fully updated Windows 10 21H2 on HP Envy, 16 GB ram, Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.40 GHz. Only trouble known is that suddenly FF would not operate the Ancestry.com properly after years of everything operating just fine there. Finally swapped browsers to Chrome. That works 100% ok. My problem is that I want to use Firefox not Chrome.

Not exactly sure why but the browser is no longer working for my banking. I first noticed it a week ago when I tried to log in and then ended up calling the bank tech support. They told me to use google chrome instead. I have been using Firefox for years and never had a problem. After researching for latest update changes, I tried changing the settings to allow cookies for the session for the bank but this did not work either. Any idea why this is happening? Thank you. Tony.

So a while ago I opened firefox on my computer and noticed all my bookmarks were dead (they had the globe and wouldn't go anywhere when clicked), I thought 'weird' and didn't do anything at the time because it wasn't what I was busy with at the time. Then, recently, I open firefox and my bookmarks are linked wrong. Like, I have Netflix bookmarked, it says Netflix, it has been netflix for as long as I have used Firefox, but if I click on it, it takes me to an article I read weeks ago at this point -one I did not bookmark or even view repeatedly. In some of my folders all of the bookmarks are missing, like they aren't dead, they're just gone.

But if I go to my ipad firefox and access my desktop bookmarks from that sync -which I literally just re-synced today- I have all my bookmarks. All of them exist, the links are fine, they're there. But I have tried refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and reinstalling it, restarting my computer, logging out of my account, removing all my extensions, everything I can think of and! Nothing!

Also, if I try to restore my bookmarks from an older file, it does nothing. Or it will say it can't access them.

I don't know what's going on. I know if I wanted to I could go through and re-bookmark them all because I do have access to all of them on my ipad, but I mostly want to know if there is a way to fix it on my desktop or even figure out what happened. I can't remember anything happening around the time with my browser. Any help is much appreciated!

Terry, thanks for writing me but I even have problems when I only use a couple tabs and I rarely use Facebook or Reddit. Yet even with limited use of Firefox it inevitably expands and expands using up more and more memory until I have to exit Firefox. Is there anything I can do to limit Firefox?

hello, I wrote to you telling you that when i facetime on facebook i cannot see or hear anyone and you answered me to try this or that. you said to go into permissions and make sure that my camera and microphone had facebook to have permission and when i facetime to go into permissions there and click off the use default button and click allow or always ask. i have already done this and still have the problem. well I know what is happening and it is your fault firefox. when my sister, who is sitting next to me rings me on facetime (and was helping try to fix this problem) and it still didn't work, while she just kept the facetime open, she watched me go into the permission box again on the padlock page, the settings i put ALLOW were gone and the use default box was ticked again. so this time i put always ask. and came back out of the permissions page and then went straight back in, and guess what.....every time i leave the permissions page, it goes back to use default. MY SETTINGS ARE NOT BEING SAVED. THERE IS NO SAVE BUTTON BECAUSE YOU REMOVED IT. I MAKE A SETTING, COME OUT OF THE PAGE AND IT IMMEDIATELY REMOVES MY SETTINGS. YOU NEED TO FIX THIS BECAUSE NOTHING IS WORKING BECAUSE IT CONTINOUSLY GOES BACK TO DEFAULT. IF YOU DO NOT FIX THIS ASAP I AM SHUTTING YOU DOWN AND GOING TO BING AS MY BROWSER

Lately I've noticed that the longer I use my Firefox browser during the day the more memory it uses up. If let alone it eventually takes up so much computer memory that everything on my computer slows to a crawl and I have to either exit Firefox or even reboot. Is there any way to stop this? I'm wondering if there are any Firefox features or add-ons that I can do without. I'm not looking for anything elaborate out of Firefox, just basic internet usage.

Today I downloaded the latest Firefox upgrade and got a flaming orange toolbar which is difficult to read. Troubleshooting the issue by browsing the internet, I tried several things I don't remember, and also clicked on the DuckDuckGo privacy tab when that option came up. I was unable to change the color of the tab but then suddenly got a gray screen with all gray tabs. There is no color.

It is not a Microsoft issue, as I have tried rebooting several times and always get a color screen at the reboot. But when the page starts loading, all the icons are gray. I tried a system restore but after a long reboot got a message that the restore was unsuccessful because apparently blocked by my security software (Webroot). The advice was to temporarily disable Webroot but when I go into my apps, the only option is to uninstall and I am hesitant to do that because I don't know if I can quickly reinstall it without having to call Webroot customer service.

At this point I can't figure out what to do. Can you help without my having to reset everything? I always keep a lot of windows open which is one feature I like about Firefox, and really don't want to have to reconstruct all those pages.

I will appreciate your help in solving this problem, which I think is a software issue and possibly related to some things I might have clicked while trying to change the toolbar color.
