Attempting to seach for a bookmark (in Firefox Library) causes "not responding" message, altho search is completed in 8 minutes. Help?

Hi...Every time I attempt to search for a bookmark by clicking "show your bookmarks" (or Ctrl/shift/b), then selecting "all bookmarks", then attempting to type something in the search box, it freezes...and just allows me to press enter, it then turns the "x" in the top right red, and gives a "Not responding" message next to Library(in the top left)..I can still click the red x to cancel the search.

I say attempting to do a search, as it only allows me to type up to 4 (is the most) letters in the search box...its often just one letter before it freezes, and the curser turns into a spinning blue circle....If i just leave it for around 8 minutes,(after pressing enter) it then lists my bookmarks with the search criteria I had used, and the "Not responding" message disappears....and the machine goes back to normal

I have tried removing all my addons and extensions, tried renaming my prefs.js file, but it still hangs and takes 8 minutes.

I havent as yet done a reinstall of Firefox without any of my personal data, or tried a refresh.

The laptop is an HP i7 16gb ram, Win 10 Pro 64bit 1909, Firefox 76.0.1...with all updates present.

On the entertainment media site Buzzfeed, clicking on a post of an embedded Twitter video gives me a blank white image. No error message like "Unable to play the file". I did a clear history, cache & cookies and refreshed Firefox. I ran the apt update for Ubunto. It had been operating smoothly in the past. If I go to Twitter, it plays. It just goes blank when I click on the video embedded in the post.

Thank you for any assistance.

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

I just had my OS reinstalled with Win 10 32 bit on my 64 bit system. When I try to up or download anything from the web, FFox freezes and need to exit it with End Task. Could the 332 bit win 10 be the problem?

I tried it in safe mode, same problem. 

are there some settings I can look at? I tried Chrome and no problem downloading, Hope someone can help I like FFox more then the others.

even when I go to clear cookies from a site like this one https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/ by clicking the padlock icon, and select Clear Cookies and Site data, it freezes.

I can download and Save programs top right of the screen.

Recently, when a popup window appears, the toolbar doesn't have buttons for any of my addons.

In about:config, I'd intentionally set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true (following the solution provided in: question 1206512).

Previously, this was successful in ensuring that popup windows got the full toolbar, but now it has stopped working.

I'm not sure exactly which release this started with.

Steps to reproduce:

1) Set dom.disable_window_open_feature.toolbar to true.

2) Visit https://jeffersonscher.com/res/popit.html and follow the third link.

3) The window that pops up has no toolbar icons for the installed extensions.

I've used firefox on mac for years no issues. Today for the first time ever it asked me to enter a Firefox password to view my saved passwords in my logins.

I've never (to my knowledge) set up a firefox account before so have no idea what the password is.

Why am I getting this suddenly and how do I disable it so I can see me saved passwords?

For several weeks I have been unable to play any YouTube video, either embedded or as a direct URLlink. Firefox support articles only suggest removing all plug-ins/extensions and then adding back one-at-a-time to find the offending one but I've disabled ALL plug-ins and extensions without any effect. Using Firefox 76.0.1, but I've had the same problem with the two previous versions also. All I get in a YouTube video is a black screen with a spinning circle. The same videos play fine in Chrome (which I hate to use - I'm a committed Firefox user!). I've also turned off tracking protections for YouTube - there's simply nothing left to disable! FWIW - only using Windows Defender as security, and there is nothing in it's log either. I'd sure appreciate a solution if one exists! CHW - Omaha

I had a plenty of bookmarks which are gone now, really need some help.

I am so worried. Somebody please help.

I think my Firefox updated, and now there is a feature where any "insecure" sites now have all the media blocked on it. When I click "Disable protection for now," it does nothing and I have no way to unblock any of it. I am literally just trying to read the TF2 comics, which I know are on a safe website (and even if they weren't, I have antivirus software that protects my computer just fine), but because of this "mixed content" block I literally can't see anything but a white page. I've searched settings for a way to permanently disable this protection, but I haven't found anything.

Why was there NO WARNING FROM FIREFOX THAT I WASN'T GOING TO BE "ALLOWED" TO SEE MY OWN PASSWORDS STORED BY FIREFOX. Suddenly today in order to see my saved passwords I have to enter my Firefox password. I just changed my password successfully a half hour ago and I can use it to sign in here but when I enter the same password to see my saved passwords it doesn't work.

I stupidly relied on Firefox to have my passwords available to me but now I can't see them and so I'm locked out of EVERY ONLINE SITE I VISIT (over 50 sites). THANKS FOR NOTHING FIREFOX for screwing up my life. HOW CAN I GET ACCESS TO ALL MY PASSWORDS that UNTIL TODAY I could see. This is insane.

So the problem is that Firefox doesn't play any HTML5 content. Weirdly except for Youtube. Youtube works just fine. But every other Website shows errors. Even songsterr.com. I'm using latest Firefox 76.0.1 on a recent Ubuntu 20. 04 LTS installation. Usual troubleshooting like updates doesnt work because "sudo apt-get upgrade" doesn't find any updates. I tried the same websites in the latest version of Chromium and they work perfectly fine. I couldn't find a mistake in the firefox settings or something so I'm confused. Disabling Plugins didn't change anything and turning of tracking protection didn't either. What is the Problem here and how can I solve it?

Hello, everyone. My Firefox (v76.0.1, Windows 10 Pro 1909) can't access the English Wikipedia (en.wikipedia.org) and some other sites I need to work with. This started happening suddenly Tuesday night.

This is the error (in English, since my Firefox is in Brazilian Portuguese):

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to en.wikipedia.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem.

upload.wikimedia.org gives me the same error. The bizarre thing is that Wikipedias in other languages seem to work normally. Other browsers work fine.

Searching it online, it doesn't seem to be a common problem, and it just started happening by itself. I don't remember installing anything on this PC that day. My only antivirus is Windows Defender. I don't use any VPNs.

Tried all solutions I could find on Google. So far I did:

  • Ctrl + F5
  • Edited the hosts file
  • Deleted cert8.db
  • Changed network proxy settings to No proxy and Automatically detect proxy configuration (was in Use system settings)
  • Toggled DNS over HTTPS
  • Went in about:config and toggled network.dns.disableIPv6
  • Started Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Backed up the profile folder and just let Firefox create a new one
  • Rebooted my router

None of that worked.

I work with site builder platforms and since yesterday the error is starting to creep up in those servers, too.

Any ideas? I just noticed that Wikipedia search is gone from the list of opensearch engines also… This is getting increasingly bizarre…
