I can't log into Kohls.com. I put my user and password in, but when I hit log in, it does nothing. I can log into it with Safari, but not Firefox. Why? I've cleared cookies and history. I have checked everything, but can't find the reason why. It's only with Kohls website so far.

I unchecked everything in address bar suggestions in the privacy settings. Went into the search settings and unchecked provide search suggestions as well. I tried to eliminate all search engines for "One Click Search Engines" but wasn't allowed to eliminate all of them. Also went in about:config and set to false the autofill and autocomplete for firefox URL browser lines. The "awesome bar" still mirrors everything below the address bar that I type in the URL address bar. This is new to version 65 and annoying.

I need an updated version of FF for an intranet network, one without access to the www, therefore security isn't as mush an issue.

I'm looking for some features that the present version (54.0 (32 bit)) I am using doesn't have, such as "simplify printing".

Cookie permission button not working

I'm experiencing a long-lived bug, or more possibly file corruption, that became important very recently. Due to another bug in Firefox 65 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1249037), I need to change cookie permissions. In the preference panel under "Cookies and Site Data", the "Manage Permissions" button doesn't work, although being not gray. After clicking this button, the expected window is not shown visibly. However invisible window still blocks keyboard and mouse input to the original firefox window. Clicking away from the center of the screen or Esc would disengage and possibly close the invisible window. The consequence is that I can't see or change permissions from this window. I have been having this problem for several firefox updates so it's more like a corrupted file. Despite that, cookie permissions still function properly and can be updated through the icon on the address bar.

Although there are workarounds such as through the icon on the address bar, this is really inconvenient and makes it hardly possible to edit cross site or cross subdomain cookie permissions. How do I figure out what is wrong and correct it please? I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.

To correct a problem in MS Word, Microsoft Support created a new Windows 10 profile on my laptop and reinstalled MS Office. Firefox is still on my laptop in the new profile, but its appearance is changed. It has lost all the profile data from the old Win 10 profile. I have looked at the articles under "Manage preferences and add-ons" but I don't think they solve my issue because I don't have a backup of my Firefox profile. Or, if I still do, I don't know how to find it on the old Windows profile, which is still on my laptop.

I had a lot of bookmarks, add-ons and preferences that I would like to retrieve for my browser. Is that possible?

I was getting errors while playing youtube videos : "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available"

I tried disabling addons and a bunch of other things that I saw googling through the error. I eventually uninstalled and reinstalled firefox to see if a clean installation would work. It didn't. I saw next someone mention that it might be a windows media issue and since I have Windows 10N I've had to download the Windows 10 Media Feature Pack before for something. I tried to download and reinstall that. Since then, it's gotten worse. My tabs how completely crash if there's any video on the tabs. They also possibly crash for other reasons, but I'm not sure (when I go to pages where I don't think there's any video, but who knows.

Crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/455b90e2-a0ed-4182-859b-78d610190217

It seems like there's something wrong with msvp9dec.dll, which seems to be a Windows file. I'm not quite sure what it is or what to re-install to fix it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I like to test my web pages as much as possible at home before uploading to a server. I do this by setting up empty drive partitions for my various sites, so that 'root level" access will work similarly on a server or from the hard drive. So, for example, a line on a page like...

<script src="/scripts/siteScripts2.js"> </script>

or

<link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/fonts/fonts.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type = "text/css" href="/styles/spcPageStyles1.css" >

Will reference the files from the root level, as if it was on a server.This works all the time with Chrome and IE, even back to IE-8. So Mozilla Firefox must be blocking file references from local hard Drive root level. If there is a config variable or two I can set to allow it from firefox, I'd appreciate knowing about it. I'm satisfied testing with Chrome and IE, but FF is an important browser to test with.

Thanks in advance!

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!

Here is the URL: https://stevemorse.org/census/unified.html?year=1920

I fill in the form from pull-down menus:

    State: Illinois
    County: Chicago Cook
    City or Town: Chicago
    Street: Sawyer N.

I see under "1920 ED numbers corresponding to your location ": "...please stand by". I see above that "Cross or back street on same city block ", but there is no pull-down menu there.

What I see in Chrome is a long list of census Enumeration District hyperlinks and a pull-down menu - "Cross or back street on same city block".

How do I determine why this page is not working in Firefox. I am running FF 65.0 in Windows 7 Professional 32-bit, and I ALWAYS run in FF safe-mode.

Opened an AMAZON link in Google search and popup says

"Virus Alert from Microsoft. Dial 833 334-6433 for and assistance..."

That Firefox page is completely frozen. Nothing works. But another Firefox page does work.

I've tried backing up to prior restore point, updating Firefox...

Any suggestions please. I'd like to just kill the one Firefox page for starters.

Thanks all,

I've been using two windows lately, each containing several important tabs. Yesterday I opened a couple of extra windows and when I restarted, only one of my main windows was available to restore from the History menu.

I immediately backed up my Firefox profile folder.

Things I tried which didn't work:

• I changed the about:config to show more than 3 previous windows, but the window didn't appear.

• I found a bunch of backups in the sessionstore-backups folder, I took one from a few days ago (titled upgrade.jsonlz4), I copied it into the main folder and renamed it to sessionstore.js, but when I started Firefox, it just loaded the windows and tabs from the previous session.
