It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

Extensions / profil / sync ?

Hello, Here is the problem I encounter in firefox (windows 7 system): - the extensions are no longer functional - reinstalling them solves the problem only until the next start - fixing firefox did not solve the problem. When I thought about it I wondered if the problem did not follow the use of 'sync' in a non-administrator profile under ubuntu. I disconnected this machine (ubuntu) via the sync interface on my PC but the problem persists. What should I do, knowing that I currently no longer have access to this ubuntu computer (if the problem really comes from there)?

Bonjour, Voici le problème que je rencontre dans firefox (système windows 7) : - les extensions ne sont plus fonctionnels - leur réinstallation ne règle le problème que jusqu'au démarrage suivant - réparer firefox n'a pas résolu le problème. En y réfléchissant je me suis demandé si le problème ne fait pas suite à l'usage de 'sync' dans un profil non-administrateur sous ubuntu. J'ai déconnecté cette machine (ubuntu) via l'interface sync sur mon PC mais le problème perdure. Que faire, sachant que je n'ai actuellement plus accès à cet ordi ubuntu (si tant est que le problème vienne réellement de là) ?

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Why can't firefox save a file on my desktop creating a meaningful shortcut reflecting the logo of the icon's identity ?

First I saved the file on my desktop with firefox. When I attempted to open it later, all I saw was a list of unscripted files that were meaningless. I then proceeded to save the original file on my desktop using internet explorer..proceeded to open it and all the pages and graphics were intact. So tell me why I should continue using firefox when all I see is jumbled java script. I need to save files on my desktop.

Basic TROUBLESOME issues like this, which are of prime necessity to this user, firefox seems to ignore .

I want to report that updating to version 73.0 today - Feb. 11, 2020, caused Firefox to stop working entirely. I could not find answers in Support and ended up doing a system restore on my laptop in order to go back to Version 72.0. Now Firefox is working again. Never had this problem with previous updates. IF THIS UPDATE HAS BUGS can someone please try to fix them? Thank you!
