I am attempting to reinstall firefox. Old one screwed up and I eventually uninstalled it. Ran revo uninstaller, turned off firewall and antivirus, wifi connected. Started Firefox Installer as Administrator. Firefox Installer window appears on Desktop. The interior of the window is completely blank, all white. Wait. Nothing happens. Click on it, get Not Responding message at top of window. As far as I can tell the Installer did nothing but open the window. Repeat downloads of the Installer did the same thing. Help?

Здравствуйте! Последние месяца 2-3 слетает авторизация на сайтах. Авторизовался на сайте, любом и через некоторое приходится ещё раз авторизовываться. В Chrome всё нормально, ничего подобного нет. А вот в Firefox стало невозможно работать.

В чём причина? Может быть как-то связано с обновлением страниц с помощью комбинаций CTRL+ R или CTRL + SHIFT + R ? Что отключить в Firefox, чтобы такого не было? Хоть старые версии использовать, где такого баг нет...

For several months I have been getting system crashes on a desktop PC running an up to date Win10, with the error being "ndu.sys or (occasionally) netio.sys. I've tried solutions suggested in other forums, with no success. It can happen randomly, like resting at night. BUT, very often, it happens right after I've clicked on some action in Firefox. My wife, with a similar machine, has the same issue. About the the only program we share is Firefox.

If I upload a file for an email attachment, google drive upload, etc when I first select "browse" for the file it opens File Explorer in the Desktop directory.

How do I change that to default to the directory I always work from, say for example C:\tmp.

I've seen numerous questions about this with answers that it opens the last directory used, which is true if I do it multiple times, but if I close Firefox and restart it, when I select "browse" it again defaults to the Desktop.

I've also seen answers saying it is controlled by the site being uploaded true. Again this is absolutely not true. I do everything from C:\tmp. Downloads, uploads, editing, searching, etc. And every time I upload a file after starting Firefox fresh after a reboot, again, it defaults to the Desktop even though I'm on the same site (gmail) I was when I last uploaded a file.

As far as the answers saying that was the last directory used, that is false. I do not use the desktop for anything. Not storing icons, not downloading files, not uploading files. I have never uploaded a file from Desktop in my life.

So can anyone answer this without saying 'last directory used' or 'controlled by the website'?

Hi Firefox,

I have some trouble with Firefox Sync. Since I use 2 laptop 1 month ago my active login always close and must to repeat login. My Firefox setting has auto clear browsing history after I close the browser but I uncheck the active login button. Before that I never meet with this case, even when I use 3 more device.

Password management doesn't work in firefox for almost a year, with the latest updates. In the latest versions of Firefox it is impossible to manage passwords. If I write it wrong then it is impossible to change it. If I take off autofill, it keeps autofill and wrong. If I delete it, it keeps automatically filling it wrong. A disaster. Again, I'll have to use Chrome as my default browser again.I have already tried unsuccessfully to reset and reinstall firefox but nothing changes.

Hello: FF dev build 83.0b5 64bit, w10p. A new odd issue to me. Using ActBlue (political PAC) I sometimes use my regular credit card to make small political contribution. As of 28oct20, this FF stops completing the transaction. I hit the "donate" button, & nothing happens. I have seen a "processing" type msg from the vendor us. promptly - but again, the current page just sits there, the "processing"action & pg don't happen. On 28th eve, I checked my bank acct to see if somehow the donation had been made (I would see the deduction taken), and no, it hadn't. No prior nightly build type update had shown this behavior. I have no other FF on this w10 (no stable, nada anything else for FF). I have made no changes to extensions, plugins or otherwise. I had to go to stable chrome to complete the donation, and chrome did it right the 1st time. So, this is just an FYI, I don't know where else to post nor may I have the rights to post elsewhere. Tx.

Hi all, I have an Apache site on Kubuntu 20.04 with a certificate signed by my private CA. I've added the root CA ceritificate in Firefox and in Chromium.

Firefox throws a SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE error

Chromium accept the certificate as valid

What can I do?

Notes: the site url is "https://hdev.h.net" (with an internal IP address inside my lab)

Attached there are:

I've had major stability issues since this update on my Mac (version 10.13.2). Tabs will become unresponsive and show the spinner icon and sometimes the whole browser become unresponsive. I've tried disabling add-ons, refresh, and even creating new profiles. Sometimes I see a process in activity monitor like Firefox Developer EditionCP Web Content or Firefox Developer EditionCP Privileged Content not responding and can force quit a single tab. Sometimes doing that crashes the browser.

I'd really prefer to keep this as my default browser, but it's not looking likely anymore.
