Since yesterday June 10, 2021, when I click on my bookmark for the New York Times, it loads the page from Feb 26, 2020. I have tried removing all cookies, restarting, rebooting, but nothing works. With Chrome I get the correct first page, but not with Firefox.

Is this happening to anyone else?

I am attaching a screen shot. It says the correct date at the top, but all the articles are from Feb 2020

I have an older laptop and got a new one. I have installed Firefox 89.0 on both machines. I want to migrate all of the Firefox data from the old one to the new one. I have copied the Profile from C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles to a thumb drive. I believe this to be all that I need to move to the new machine. The problem is that I don't know where to put it on the new machine.

I understand that Firefox must be closed when I modify the new machine. I also discovered that there is a Profile.ini file that has a pointer to the filename that Firefox will use when it is opened. Do I have to modify this file as well?

Perhaps I am on the wrong track and need to be redirected. If so, please point me to an article or wiki that will put me on the right one.

Firefox opens in a small box at the top left of the computer screen about 1/9 the size of the viewing area. I have to click on the "maximize" icon (the square box(es)twice to get a normal viewing screen. Note: I am not referring to "full screen." This began after the last Firefox update. I have cleared the cache, cookies, data, etc. and startup cache and restarted Firefox and the computer. I haven't "Refreshed" Firefox, yet, because I don't want to go through the hassle of putting everything back together if it isn't going to work. How do I get Firefox to open in a "maximized" window?

For some unknown reason, my default fonts are not appearing correctly in Firefox. Here are the things I've tried:

1. I've checked the same sites with Edge and Chrome. 2. I checked the "Fonts and Colors" section of Firefox - both the regular and Advanced parts. 3. I've done the Firefox reset (I can't remember what it's actually called). 4. I've uninstalled/reinstalled. 5. I've deleted the Mozilla folder from my %AppData% folder. 6. I've signed out and uninstalled/reinstalled. 7. I've disabled all extensions and plugins. 8. I've made sure I have the newest version.

The only time it works correctly is when I run Firefox in Troubleshooting mode.

У меня такой вопрос: до последнего обновления 89.0, если мне нужно было отправить страницу с компьютера на свой телефон, я нажимал в строке браузера справа значок "три вертикальные точки". В появившемся меню выбирал "поделиться" и дальше выбирал "мой телефон" (он привязан к моей учетной записи Windows). После обновления эти три точки пропали и я не могу найти их. Подскажите, пожалуйста, осталась ли функция "поделиться" страницей?

Hi. I've noticed similar messages like this after previous Firefox upgrades, but not for the latest.

My Firefox ESR was automatically updated to 78.11 on June 1, 2021. Since then I have not been able to access Amazon Prime. The error says:

Your web browser is missing a digital rights component.

In your web browser’s address bar, type about:addons, press Enter, and then on the left, click Plugins. For the Widevine Content Decryption Module, select Always Activate, and then refresh the video’s page and try watching the video. If the video doesn’t play, go back to Plugins, click the gear icon at the top of the page, and then click Check for Updates. When the plugins have updated, refresh the video’s page, and then try watching the video.

The suggestions get me no where. It is already on "Always Activate" and newer updates are available.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling a early version, but this does not work either. I get a message at the top saying that "Firefox is installing components needed to plate the audio or video on this page. Please try again later." "Later" is apparently never.

Has any else had this issue? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I posted a question re menu bar colours and received a reply but now I cannot find my original question to continue the conversation. How do I do that? Help me please.

Hello ·´¯`·...¸>-)))º> ~dbben Thanks for reply. I see the 'simple themes' box but it doesn't give me what I want; ie there is still no option to colour in the menu bar. The options displayed under 'more themes' completely baffles me. What are they supposed to do? I dare not select one (even if I could see how) in case I cannot return to the theme I have at the moment. Neither is there any indication that I can see that tells me which theme is currently set.

Hallo

Seit einigen Tage versuche ich die Suchfunktion in der Adressleiste auszuschalten.

Egal was ich mache, die Suche in der Adressleiste lässt sich nicht deaktivieren.

Wenn ich einen neuen Tab öffne, dann habe ich da ein Suchfeld. Möchte ich dort etwas eintippen springt, das einfach in die Adressleiste.

keyword.enabled habe ich auf false gestellt.

In den Einstellungen eine eigene Suchleiste.

Inhalte des Firefox-Startbildschirms ist eine eigene Suchleiste eingestellt. Und diese benutze ich zu 90 % und sonst die Suchleiste, aber niemals die Adressleiste.

Was kann ich tun?

Whoever thought Firefox 89 was a good idea is not someone with whom I agree. 89 is awful - I disregarded the update notice for days but then got sick of the reminder. BAD idea on my part. Is there any way to get rid of the topmost "tab" - they ARE NOT tabs - bar? I really liked the previous tabs that LOOKED LIKE TABS and DID NOT TAKE UP MORE ROOM on the page. Can I go back to the previous version? This one is really bad. Like, REALLY bad. Firefox "developers" need to give an option to check out the new update before committing to it.

How can I restore the old style of highlighting text--grey background behind black text? It's being highlighted, but I can't see it. Happening with Firefox and Thunderbird.

This happened when I more-or-less simultaneously updated to macOS Mojave (10.14.6}, Firefox 89, and is also happening with Thunderbird (but I can't tie it to any specific update).

Is this an issue with Firefox and Thunderbird, or with Mojave?
