A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

attempting to login to Firefox sync I'm told the system has just locked my account - which is odd because I just logged in with the account to log this issue. Message is : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to xxxxxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account."

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.

Hi

I have read all the solutions suggested for helping solve problem with spelling checker tried a fix but to no help.

Here is the problem, when i right click the mouse to get access to language for spell checking, I do not get the alternatives that include selection of language. This happens in the text area but not in the address area where I can see the option of selecting the language and hence even being able to spell check.

I have tried selecting the language in Outlook, gmail, creating a post in LinkedIn and elsewhere and all I get is nothing.

Incidentally, writing here was ok without any issues.

So, friends out there, please help me solve this one

kind regards

Edward

Hi! I've switched to Firefox quite recently and I love pretty much everything about the browser. The only problem I've been experiencing is that whenever I try to print a page the whole browser crashes. I've tried removing all the settings for printing in prefs.js but that didn't seem to help in any way and the crashes don't turn up in the about:crashes tab. Has anyone else been experiencing this and perhaps knows how to fix it?

This has happened several times over the last few weeks. I'll be using Firefox with 8-12 tabs open, or even far less, and then suddenly I cannot select any of the tabs. I click on them, and nothing happens. Video and audio will keep playing, but I cannot select anything.

So at this point I quit it, it closes fine, and when I launch it again it prompts me to either start in safe mode or to refresh. I have to restart the PC to get it to launch Firefox normally again.

The only extension I use is uBlock origin.

Hello

The original built in password manager that Firefox had has changed again. It originally changed late last year. Then i returned to the previous password manager by following instructions in this link:

https://prod-tp.sumo.mozit.cloud/en-US/questions/1271509#question-reply

However this solution no longer works. How can i get back to the previous password manager, when it was displayed in a row of columns headed 'Site' 'Username' 'Password' 'Last Changed.' Now once again it is just one long column.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks

I have been having major problems with Firefox. It constantly crashes when I open certain sites, when print from some non processing sources. It even crashed with I followed your instructions that I found online about crashing to go to the Menu & Help & About Firefox. It crashed when I clicked on About Firefox. I have the updated version & I have uninstalled & reinstalled numerous times, but nothing fixes the crashing problem. I am going to have change my default browser unless there is a solution to this problem. Please contact me & advise me how to fix this. It is very frustration. Thank you.

this morning when I turned on my computer firefox was open and it looked like the address bar was targeted. Nothing would load. I can see my favorite websites in a drop down list but I can't go to them. I cannot access the options or library menus. All I can do is close the window by closing it on the tab not the window itself.

I have run two anti viruses, I have restarted my computer and I have reinstalled firefox. I cannot access anything in firefox. Here is a picture of what I see. I am still getting the same issue.

client certificate on smartcard leads to SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE

SSL client certificates do not work on Firefox 74.0 64-bit (Windows 10) and smartcards as expected. The smartcard gets accessed via PKCS #11 library.

When the client certificate is placed into the software security module, Firefox can send it to the requesting web server and it works as expected.

Once the very same certificate was successfully imported into a smartcard and removed from the software security module, authentication fails in Firefox with "SEC_ERROR_LIBRARY_FAILURE". The nginx web server reports: SSL_do_handshake() failed (SSL: error:14094438:SSL routines:ssl3_read_bytes:tlsv1 alert internal error:SSL alert number 80) while SSL handshaking, client: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx, server: 0.0.0.0:443

When using Chrome, the same client certificate from the same smartcard gets used and successfully connects to the web server.

Is there a known issue for this? How can this problem be narrowed down? Is there some kind of debug log file to get further information?

I am typing this on Microsoft Edge browser.

I am getting angrier and angrier. I allowed Firefox to "update" my browser. The result is that my browser will no longer connect to the internet. Edge, Internet Explorer, and Chrome can all connect to the internet. Firefox cannot.

I have rebooted my computer. I have looked through the HELP stuff. There is ZERO way to connect to a HUMAN BEING and I am PISSED. I have work to do. There are other browsers that obviously work, but Firefox has all of my bookmarks, with logon credentials.

I do NOT want to migrate to another browser but it is looking like my only choice. If I have to do that I will uninstall Firefox and spread the word.

I am sorry to sound like a dick but you have really screwed me over.

I recently had to wipe my MacBook Air clean thus prompting me to download Firefox - version 70.01 (64-bit). I set up all of my work websites, history, passwords, emails, etc., but every time I close the browser and try to open it again, nothing is saved. I've tried several times and I am at a loss. Yes, I have created a Firefox account, and even this won't leave me logged in if I close the browser. I have to start over every time. Any advice?

Hello and thanks in advance for your help!

For many years, the content management system that I have been using has worked just fine with previous versions of Firefox. To access the backend area for a client of mine to edit their own website I built for them, they would go to their website and hit Control-Y on any page of their website. This would bring up the login prompt window so they could login and start live editing their site. Now, when I hit Control-Y, nothing happens.

I saw a previous post that mentioned adjusting (allowing) keyboard shortcuts in the settings area. I did this but unfortunately, this didn't solve my issue.

Can someone tell me why this no longer works with Firefox and what the possible fix / workaround might be?

Thank you so much!!
