firefox.exe -p in "run", deleted profile, created new. "netsh winsock reset" in command prompt" "about:config" not doing or loading anything. reinstalled firefox restarted computer checked security program settings Firefox in Safe Mode

I'm not sure what else to try. What I listed above is what I was able find based off of Google search and Youtube videos. Please help.

Hello. I had naively let my computer do an upgrade of Mozilla. Guess what. All data gone. History, bookmarks, add-ons. I didn't have a back-up of bookmarks, well, at least not recent.

How can I get them back? I've spent a lot of time with setting up Firefox so it would be comfortable to me, I've spent my time in it, and now it's all gone and I don't even remember the name of some add-ons I used to use.

I have a new ubunutu 16.04 machine which I recently connected to my workplace domain where multiple users login to the same machine with there workplace account names. When a user login to the machine it logins successfully but when try to open firefox get this message

your firefox profile cannot be loaded. it may be missing or inaccessible

I tried some suggested solutions:

sudo chmod -R 777 .mozilla/ rm -rf ~/.mozilla/ rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla/ https://askubuntu.com/a/314915/304905

I tried all these but nothing worked. I wonder how I can fix this permanently from my machine local admin account so that when a new user logins to the machine for the first time firefox works without problems and without him having to do something?

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS 32 Bit. It came with a per-installed Firefox browser which updated itself to version 66. When I want to print something the page setup button does not provide options to set the page margins. Hence the margins are permanently set to one inch on all sides. I sometimes need to print documents which need extremely small margins, e.g., 0.2 inches on all sides. The only options available in the Page Setup dialogue box are: Format For, Paper Size, and Orientation. On the other hand, clicking the Print button provides several tabs, including one named 'Page Setup', but this one does not provide margin settings either. Another tab here named 'Options' provides the options to leave the header and footer blank but no options of setting the margins. Any help would be welcome. Thank you.

Ubuntu 18.04 There is a proxy. No any antivirus software installed.

On some sites there is warning: Your connection is not secure. If i pressed "Advanced". The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. After that, i choose "Add Exception" and "Get certificate". After receiving certificate, i get

the site provides valid, verified identification".

So I can close "Add Exception" window and refresh the page. All works fine.

Another way if HSTS used. There is not chance to "Add Exception". But sometimes i just need to reload page. Or another page with the same domen load successfully.

What i tried todo:

updates certificates: sudo dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates

remove cert file of firefox: ~/.mozilla/firefox/qrpsqrx2.default/cert9.db.

It seems to be usefull, but not a long time. So: problem still exist.

Hello,

I receive this restart message multiple times now.

But there was no firefox update. All package updates are handled by the ubuntu apt manager and apt did not update firefox and it was not an unattended-upgrade from the system.

What update is it? It is worrying me.

I've created a website in php5. During development I used Firefox 46.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. The session variables are nicely stored en can be read.

Now I'm starting to test on different browsers, my Windows 10 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 doesn't store the session variables. Chrome and Edge do store the session variables on my Windows 10 pc. Also on a win 8.1 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 the session variables are not stored.

Any idea what could be the cause?

What I typically do in a php script:

?>

In order to reload the page, I use javascript. "location.reload();" When commenting that line out and refresh the page, the session variables are available.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

Every time I start Firefox it starts displaying a "You should restart firefox now to install updates" message to the left of the location bar. I checked all plugins, all addons - nothing is updated or needs updating.

OS is Ubuntu and Firefox is installed from a tar.gz When I use Firefox version from repos, I don't see such an error.
