I was using Firefox this morning, and the program crashed. When I restarted, I found I had lost all my passwords. I searched for the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop--and everywhere else, and there is no such folder on my computer. I tried importing passwords from Safari and that didn't work at all. I am traveling right now and don't have access to my backup disk.

This is the second time this has happened with FF, and I am about to dump the program because of this.

Any ideas?

I'm a longtime Chrome user trying to move away from that browser. I recently downloaded Firefox and it worked fine for a few days, but now I'm having problems.

I keep Gmail and Google Classroom open in tabs throughout the day (I'm a teacher). They worked fine in Firefox for a few days, but now both sites constantly load or time out.

The problem seems to go away anytime I restart Firefox, but I can't constantly be restarting Firefox all day long. Why do the sites work for a few minutes and then stop working a few minutes after restarting?

I had AdBlocker Ultimate enabled before, but my friend uses uBlock so I tried changing. No help.

I had a theme installed from the recommended list. I thought that might be a problem, so I went back to the default Firefox theme. No help.

What I'm running: Firefox 89.0.1 MacOS Catalina

When browsing on my iMac 27" Retina full width screen views webites as if it's an iPhone. Which is very annoyning fills the window as if it was mobile phone. Sometimes when doing a supermarket shop it goes big when you move the mouse sideways!

I have a WordPress website using a Divi theme and this is displaying incorrectly. It's fine in Safari!

https://www.reevesdesign.co.uk/


This has only happened since the latest update Firefox 89.0 Weird I have just cleared cache and it views OK.

Still got that annoying big screen when shopping, that you can't get out of.

Anyone else getting these problems on iMac please?

FF auto-updated to 89.0.1, now a site won't work, would like to RESTORE deleted/cleared COOKIES (?!?!) for that site to see if it will help cuz deleted the cookie for it made things worse! Doesn't work under Private FF session either!!

Specifics: I am the Webmaster of (we use WIX to create/manage it) 12cdrc.org and it is working fine using Edge, Chrome, Brave, but no longer works correctly (since 89.0.1, I think happened late last night early this morning on my system) update. Most of the page loads, but the Calendar and display tweets sub-windows will not load! It will be obvious to all where they should be displaying but are not!

So, I tried removing 12cdrc.org cookies. Things got worse! Now the Login won't work either, where I was logged in as my user for the site prior to that.

I tried a Private window/session, and the Login function does work, the Calendar does show, but the tweets sub-section/window still does not display/function.

Background: This is not the first website to malfunction using Firefox... Previous version updates broke the rescuemichigan.com website (none of the pull-down menu functions work, but work fine on/with Brave, Chrome, Edge)! Also mewe.com acts up using FF at times, but a clear of the mewe.com related cookies and relogin at mewe via FF clears up the issues of things not wanting to display correctly or fully on mewe using FF - which is why I thought clearing 12cdrc.org cookies would help in this case (but did not, again, made the malfunctioning worse)!

This makes little sense. I even tried doing D/L of full 89.0.1 install, didn't help.

I'd like to try and RESTORE COOKIES (last thing I want to do is clear all data/cookies for FF) for 12cdrc.org from manual offload of all my userid appdata folder/sub-folders to an external drive (or perhaps appdata backup to Norton cloud backup done a few weeks ago)! But I do not know where to look. Was about to go to my external drive and do complete file search of "12cdrc*.*" to see what would return when I thought I could search Mozilla/FF Help on "Restore Cookies" but only very old question for very old version of FF showed up and it said "IF STILL NEED HELP ASK NEW QUESTION" so here I am doing so!!!

Again, all sites (12CDRC.org, MeWe.com, and RescueMichigan.com) ALL WORK 100% error/issues free using Brave, Chrome, Edge, so this is FIREFOX SPECIFIC and all these issues have started under/after recent FF updates and/or gotten worse, not fixed/better, under updates/upgrades!!!!

Appreciate any Help... 1) like I said, where the Cookies are hidden that I might then recover them from previous save 2) other suggestions?!?!?!

Hello, I'm using syncing for several years and now I had to reset my working laptop to default Windows 10 installation. So I installed also Firefox, loged in and was waiting for restoring of the bookmarks and the rest. What happened was the bookmarks were empty, only folders were restored. I saw the bookmarks for few seconds and then they dissapeared. And of course it synced the state into the rest of my devices. So I used one of the backups I do on many occasions. What happens is the bookmarks are back, but they're completely in reverse order. Everything is rotated and the splitters are at the bottom of each folder. Nothing helps, it's again synced into all my devices and I'm going crazy, because I put so much time in the past to organize the bookmarks and I have thousands of them. I have backups in json as well as in HTML, but the reverse order is terrible. What can I do? Best regards, Pavel

According to this site: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens the Greek language is not included in the hyphenation support. Since hyphenation rules for Greek exist (for example in LibreOffice) is it so difficult to add Greek to the supported languages? Is there something that needs to be done from some Greek user? If yes could you direct me to what must be done to see if I can do it or find someone to do it (if I can't)?
