Hey everyone.

I decided to make a fresh windows install, and when i installed firefox as allways i logged in.

Normally when i have logged in on a fresh installation of firefox it startes with the sync and getting all my old booksmarks, add-ons, passwords etc. but this time i didn't.

I thought that was weird but didn't pay mind to it, i thought i might have needed some time to sync. After 4 hours nothing has happended yet.

things i have tried:

  • Pressing Sync now under my profile
  • Pressing sync now under settings
  • Going to help - more techinical information - Databasen Places - Confirm integrety

The result was:

Hi there!

My Firefox crashed for some reason and I decided to re-install it. Prior to re-installing I had an older theme from older versions of Firefox installed. It was the pink one of the themes you could choose from the "Application menu" (literal translation from German, the system language I'm using). With the new version installed, I somehow cannot find the old themes anymore. I was wondering if there could be any way of using the old themes in the new version? Thank you for your time in reading this request.

Sincerely, Nikola

For the past week, when I login any streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, etc) I get a message "Gah, your tab just crashed". After going through every add-on and plugins I found that 'Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc' causes this. Disabling widevine allows the tabs to load but then I get a request to enable DRM to play the videos and if I do it just enables widevide again and the tab crashes. I never had this issue before. Is there a different plugin I can use or a way around the DRM request? Widevine version is the latest is updated.

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean

Starting last night Firefox will not let me download anything. If I click on a download link, my Mac toolbar goes gray like normal, but no download dialog box ever appears. I have confirmed the dialog box isn't hiding behind any open windows on my desktop, and I have tried rebooting my system with no change.

Please help me fix this.

$ dnf list installed | grep firefox firefox.x86_64 100.0-4.fc36

Since upgrading to Fedora 36, Firefox seems to have stopped being stable at all. Having any add-ons enabled causes webpages to frequently break. Even in troubleshooting mode, I get a tab crash immediately on start, and infrequently during later browsing.

Troubleshooting mode has the same issues, trying a completely clean profile has the same issues. Chromium works with no issues.

See tab crash report here: https://pastebin.com/wNPFhpgN

I can't no longer use "wetransfer.com" Their homepage does not load properly and no matter what I click on this page it starts using the CPU 100% and slows down everything and nothing happens anymore. I whitelisted this website in all privacy-extensions, and because in a flits I saw that "firefox essentials" was blocking something - despite the whitelist - I uninstalled it. To no avail. Firefox 100.0.1 (64 bits) under Windows 11 home 64 bits. How can I find out what is the problem ? Thanks for helping out.
