I use Firefox on a PC to access Facebook (website, not app). This week the Messenger/Chat feature stopped working. I click the icon and it opens but nothing appears in the box, it just hangs. There is an option to open in its own window, but that also is blank - no past messages, no contact names, no ability to start new message. When I log onto Facebook in Edge, Messenger works fine in Facebook.

I've tried everything I found on the internet for this issue - updated and refreshed Firefox, cleared history/cache/cookies/site data, uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger, refreshed Facebook to initial settings, used Firefox in troubleshooting mode, reset everything, turned off browser, turned off my computer, used shift key to reload tab - nothing has worked. There are some instructions about stuck cookies, but I didn't understand them so I didn't try that one thing. I've gone into every menu I can find to try to figure out this issue, which isn't the end of the world, but I would appreciate some other ideas for what is suddenly causing this. Because now I have to redo all of my settings and preferences and logins and the problem still isn't fixed.

Is there a main location where Firefox extensions (like Forecastfox) keep their settings? If so, or if you happen to know where Forecastfox in particular keeps its settings, I could use some help locating this folder. I have a settings file I could put in there to overcome some difficulties that the folks at Mozillazine can't seem to help with. (https://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=48&t=2913287&p=14963740#p14963740). The folder I have is named Forecastfox.2023.04.22.21.11.51.txt

This is my second email to you....

I just switched to Firefox from Chrome, because Chrome was crashing all the time.

All I want to do is sync my computer, laptop, phone and Ipad's reading list. I want to be able to see an article on one device, add to the reading list, and have it on all devices.

I'm logged in under the same name on all, and it says sync is on, but the reading lists are different.

Can someone help me? My phone number is [removed phone# from public support forum], email is [removed email from public].

Thank you!

Hello! I have used Firefox on and off so I don't have a time frame of when this would have started exactly, but I have had some random completely black screens on both of my monitors dating back to at least 2-3 weeks ago that can only be fixed by powering down the entire PC. I've reinstalled my (NVIDIA) GPU drivers, rearranged display-port cables and just about anything before finally finding a fix, switching to edge. So far I've gone a week without black screening when with Firefox I'd get around 4 give or take a week (some days getting to 3 alone). I don't know what could cause it but I have noticed it only happens when first starting a video. Mostly YouTube but other video sites seem to have also caused it occasionally, I would just like to know what could be causing this, as I do prefer Firefox vastly and would like to switch back as soon as I can.

Will provide anything else as necessary!

The problem is that even after I've tinkered with the about:config settings to prevent Firefox from restoring my previous session after a crash, it just won't listen! The changes I make in about:config don't seem to save, and every time Firefox crashes, it happily reloads my old tabs and windows.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I got a notice that Firefox (and Thunderbird) were updated this morning. Took me an HOUR to find out how to make the miniscule font in my inbox larger. So.. suddenly, new problem.

When I click the Firefox icon to launch the browser, and reopen my tabs, It opens for a millisecond, then closes faster than I can try to read if there is an error. When I click it AGAIN, all my tabs are GONE and I have to search for them manually, which is a royal pain.

Why is this happening? How can I stop it from happening? This is annoying as hell.

https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/actualites/A15610#titreChapitre_-5776306477855185115

There is an element with id "titreChapitre_-5776306477855185115" in the page (chapter "Personnes ayant un test de dépistage positif" which means "People who test positive to Covid", Chrome will scroll to this chapter (well, at least 60% of time it auto scrolls to the element) while Firefox will always display the top of the page.

Firefox is slightly better and more similar to Chrome on the english version for some reason : https://www.service-public.fr/particuliers/actualites/A15610?lang=en#titreChapitre_-5634635573997558496

For a few weeks now, Firefox has been often freezing a webpage for 5-10 seconds during browsing. It mostly happens when going back to the previous page, but also when clicking a link or doing a google search. For those 10 seconds, you can't do anything on the page; no clicking other links or selecting text.

I've already tried: - troubleshoot mode; it still happens when all extensions are turned off - turning on/off hardware acceleration - creating new places databes - updating to the newest version

What can i do to fix this?

So some website didn't work for me and I pressed "forget" button thinking it only removes history from a particular website (no). That's it - EVERYTHING COLLAPSED, session is lost, all tabs gone. Trying to restore from "sessionstore.backup" - no result. Trying from synced - oh sure CRAP IS TURNED OFF like always for NO reason

Thanks a lot, douchebag morons. Hope you all die + anyone suggesting to copy "sessionrestore" gets testicle/boob cancer + anyone suggesting to turn sync on can eat my crap

I'm having issues with the cursor when opening a new tab and I've tried a few different fixes and none are really working.

When I open a new tab the cursor goes immediately to the start of the homepage URL which is not helpful as if I type it just retains the URL after what I've typing(See Image). I've tried playing around with about:config to get the cursor to populate into the google search bar on the browser home screen but, it doesn't work.

I've also tried setting the new tab page to blank but, then sometimes it doesn't search google even though it says it should and says URL unrecognised(see the other images).

Why is this happening, I just want to be able to not have to manually delete the URL to search using the search bar and this seems like really basic functionality to me.

Hello Firefox Community,

I've been a long-time fan of Firefox's bookmarks management system, but over the past year, I've encountered a persistent issue that's affecting my productivity. I regularly use the bookmark bar and organize my bookmarks into folders. However, any changes I make don't seem to stick and get reset after a period of time. This is especially frustrating as I heavily rely on bookmarks to keep my browsing organized. Problem Details

Here's what typically happens:

  1. I add a bookmark to a specific folder or position, either in the general list of bookmarks or on the bookmark toolbar.
  2. Sometime later, that bookmark leaves its designated position and moves to the bottom of the unsorted list of bookmarks.

Devices and Operating Systems

  • MacBook M1 2020 running macOS Monterey
  • Dell Alienware 17 r5 running Windows 10

Both devices have the latest version of Firefox installed, and I use Firefox Sync to keep my bookmarks and settings consistent across these devices. Suspicion

I suspect that this issue occurs when I make a change to bookmarks on one computer and then open Firefox on the other computer. The bookmarks seem to reset, possibly due to some issue with Firefox Sync.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts and possible solutions!

Kind regards,
