I use Xfinity email that,m like all email applications, has compose, reply and forward controls. I have loaded Grammarly for Firefox (on Widows 10) as a spell and grammar checker. When I open any Xfinity mail window Grammarly does not attach. If I turn Grammarly off and on using the task bar then it does load. Using the Chrome browser, every window has Grammarly attached. So, what is stopping Firefox from attaching Grammarly as an extension to any editing window? And how do I fix it? Any help is appreciated as it is a pain to have manual control on each window in a flood of emails. Bob N

So, starting yesterday (10/10/2020) Firefox suddenly began having playback issues on YouTube in the form of very obnoxious and repeat micro-stuttering. I'm not sure what caused this because the version of Firefox was installed over a week ago (81.0.1), and nothing changed before this happened. But here's the thing: my laptop has the same version without suffering stutters. It's only happening on my desktop. I've updated windows, updated flash, cleared cache, updated drivers, turned off vp9 stuff, installed add-on h264ify -- I've done every solution I could find to fix this and it refuses to fix. It keeps happening.

I'm sharing data below to see if you guys can spot anything wrong with the browser itself.

Lately, on YouTube, after watching a few video's, a banner pop-up comes up and freeze's the page. It's a Yellow Banner the a robot in the left corner. It says " A web page is slowing down our browser. What you you like to do?" On the far right, it has two box's. "Stop It" or "Wait" then an "X"...I don't click on anything, I just shut the page. It gives me this warning when I only have ONE page open, so it smells of scam to me. Thanks. It's no big deal, just annoying....otherwise FireFox is GREAT and I would Never use anything else.

I, somewhere, somehow inadvertently created "private browsing" and now every time I got to open a site it says 'private window' and takes forever to open. Some sites won't allow me to open because the claim they can't verify my location and I can't give them my location because I'm in a private window. How do I disable private browsing? Please, please, please.

The Washington Post home page is scrambled, with everything pushed to the left edge of the window. Works on other browsers (Chrome, Edge) Other WAPO pages seem to work fine, just the home page (https://www.washingtonpost.com/) Running in safe mode ( add-ons disabled) changes nothing.

Seems to have just started, I think with the 80.0.1 update.

Any suggestions??

thx, Mark

Thanks to a problem with Yahoo taking over my search functions, I had to eliminate some add-ons. Unfortunately, this meant that my browser history, saved passwords, and bookmarks were effectively eliminated. When I try to restore the bookmarks it can see the files but I get the "unable to load file" error.

Any suggestions?

How can the two crash reports be submitted?

I use firefox on Mac OS 10.14.6. Every time I quit firefox (Stopping the program, not simply closing all windows) everything is reset to defaults. For all intents and purposes, it's as though I deleted and re-installed firefox every time I quit out of it. Bookmarks are removed, and any default bookmarks I removed are re-instated. It also opens up the set-up and privacy web pages that it does for the first time when you open it. None of the preference files are locked, it's set to remember history and I'm not permanently in private browsing, it's not even supposed to delete cookies. It's been like this since the moment I installed it; refreshing firefox changes nothing, uninstalling and reinstalling it also changes nothing. The only thing that stays the same is that my computer keeps firefox as my default browser.

I had a tab open in Firefox for ancestry.com yesterday and was toggling back and forth with other open tabs when suddenly when I clicked on the ancestry tab the page was all greyed out and I couldn't click on anything. It was working just fine a few minutes earlier.

I can open ancestry.com just fine Microsoft Edge browser so I'm assuming the problem is with Firefox.

Thank you for any help you can give me!

I'm trying to move back to Firefox from Pale Moon. I've exported my logins/passwords file from Pale Moon, as an XML file. However, I cannot figure out how to import that data into Firefox - Import from another browser doesn't include Pale Moon, and I have no Import from a File option that I can find.

I also saved back the files key3.db and logins.json from Pale Moon, but I cannot find their locations in FFX, so I'm guessing it doesn't use those files any more?

Any help on how I can import my Pale Moon saved passwords to Firefox is appreciated!

Every time I watch a video on Youtube and click on the logo to return home, I get logged out and when i try to login I get this “'405. That’s an error.” message. I tried doing the same thing with the other browsers (Google Chrome & Microsoft Edge) & they work perfectly. I also tried reinstalling Firefox but still the issue is the same & Firefox on my old laptop doesn’t have this issue. Can anyone help me with this one?

I have not been able to log into chase.com using Firefox for about 3 days - previously it was fine. I CAN log into chase.com using Edge and Chrome. I CAN log into all other web sites I routinely visit using Firefox. Only problem is chase.com, and only in Firefox. I have read about similar problems and solutions in this forum and tried the cures - I have cleared cookies on chase.com by clicking on the "padlock" in the address line - I have cleared the cache - and I have disabled the hardware accelerator - still unable to log in. When I enter my user name and password on chase.com and click on "sign in", a completely white screen is returned with a 2 inch solid blue bar roughly in the middle of the screen. Help?
