Title. I've followed every guide I've found but the issue still persists. I've created a new profile, reinstalled ff after deleting the whole file from my pc, deleted all cookies for a dozen times, disabled all extensions, started ff in that problem mode or whatever it's called and I still can't login to certain websites.

I type my login credentials, press "continue" and nothing happens.

I hate how much information Google gathers from their users but I used Chrome for five or more years and I never had this issue with their browser. Not once. Even now I constantly have to go back using Chrome because with it I have no issues logging in to the sites while on FF I just can't.

What is going on?

Amazon Prime Videos will not play on Fire Fox. The message says to update Firefox, but my browser is up to date as of today, 10-24-23. Their customer service can provide no answer. This has been an ongoing problem for several months. I have tried their trouble shooting steps of restarting my system, signing out and re-signing in on Amazon and closing and re-opening Firefox. Allow DRM content is checked on my settings. Thanks.

I have a work and personal profile. On my work profile, when I go to amazon, I see the pricetag icon in the URL bar and it works as expected. However, on my personal profile, it's not showing up at all; no icon, no prompt, it's like it doesn't exist for that profile. I've restarted both profiles, and it still isn't showing up.

I'd prefer to do my shopping on my personal profile, and not my work profile. Any ideas why it's not working on one?

The header bar at the top of the screen has disappeared from Firefox when run from my desktop computer (Image 1), but not when run from my laptop computer (Image 2). With the desktop, the maximize, minimize etc buttons are now on the same toolbar as the File Edit View etc buttons and there is no indication as to what website is being viewed. This problem occurs even when Firefox is run in Troubleshooting mode. Both instantiations are v. 119.0. How can I get the header back on my desktop instantiation?

And while I'm at it: With the current version of Firefox, the bookmarks toolbar is below the list of open websites, whereas several versions ago it was the other way around, which seems much more intuitive. Is there a way to switch them back so that the bookmarks menu is at the top?

Thanks!

Hello.

Lately i found strange bug in FF 119.0 (ppa - deb, not snap version), ubuntu 23.10 I can't download any file to mounted ntfs volume. Firefox instead creates thousands of empty files. Once it was 10001 or 10003 other time it was 20000 of files. I tried private-window, no change. I have removed all add-ons - no change.

For example i was trying to download https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso and i ended with (only few last lines):

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9989.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9990.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9991.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9992.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9993.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9994.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9995.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9996.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9997.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-99.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest.exe

I can download the same source files to the same location with other browsers without problems. Thank You for Your help!

Also i cannot open the Downloads folder within the Menu bar from firefox I tried entering into safe-mode and still couldn't open I also tried using another User Profile under "Right click Firefox -> firefox profile manager" to try to see if it was something from my user profile that was causing the issue but i also couldnt open in another profile.

I also tried on a different browser to see if it was my device problem but i could open it. i tried on Brave and Chrome and it worked.

i dont know what to do, this was working normally last week and now it doesnt work, Even in another profile with no configuration done no extension and not logged in the "Open file" button doesnt work

When I visit an http site and specify a non-standard port, it automatically changes to https, which is not a site redirect but something Firefox changes. This site already has an https service, and the http service will redirect to https. I reproduced the same situation in chrome. Accessing the http service with a non-standard interface was normal. After accessing the https service once, the service with the non-standard port was also changed to https. Clearing the data will restore it. Is this cached? My HTTPS-Only Mode is turned off, and set an exception for this site. thx.

Hi, I opened Mozilla after coming home from work today and had a few weird things happen. First things first, I was welcomed with a "Thank you for installing AdBlock" page. Which wouldn't be all that odd if I didn't use Ublock Origin instead. I removed the extension, ready to move on, but then I noticed all my bookmarks in the toolbar were gone! The ones saved to other bookmarks are still there, but the ones on my toolbar are deleted and not hidden. While I was investigating that, I found that my history looks weird? It's a bunch of pages on Nexus Mods that I visited a month ago or so but haven't visited recently.

Only my three devices, PC, phone, and Steam deck are logged in, but I'm worried my account has been compromised. I've changed my password and am trying to get two-factor authentication up.

Every time I try to login to my bank using Firefox New Private Window I get a message "Unable to login. Try again later." But if I then switch to Microsoft Edge browser using its private window I have no problem, no delay, in logging in. It has occurred to me that Edge is deliberately blocking or somehow delaying my login attempt with Firefox. Could this be?

There is one domain that I get a "server not found" error for even after doing many things to fix it including everything here, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can#firefox:win10:fx119, checking blocked URLs in the registry, running malware checks, safe mode, reinstalling FF after removing all FF folders from my system.

Before I did a completely clean reinstall, disabling the Open H264 codec (see attached screenshot) would allow me to access the site. But thinking it was needed, I did the clean reinstall. Now disabling it does not allow access to the site.

So far, I have not found any other websites with this problem. It's a .edu domain which happens to be the one I work for! What else can I do?

I am having this issue where Firefox only keeps "Today's" history. I have thoroughly looked at the community's similar issue fixes.

I do not have Private Browsing on. I have set "Custom Settings History:

 -Remember browsing and download history
 -Remember search and form history

I do not have CC Cleaner or like apps and the one I do is on auto-manual and does not clear FF.

There is no reason for this. I would like to know when answering, what are a couple of likely causes for this. It appears by many queries here and on Google this has been an issue for years and FF seems not to want to fix it or know about it. Your help is appreciated.

An answer from legit source (longtime moderator or developer) is welcome. I'm sorry if this has been asked before. I couldn't find it and I'd like to make my point.

I didn't like the design of Firefox when they first started this design with so much space wasted for tabs and toolbar. Every time I open Firefox it feels odd with gigantic empty spaces if I come from Chrome/Vivaldi which are thoughtfully compact.

I have 14" laptop and Firefox makes the UX very less intuitive.

As of now, I'm using the workaround for compact mode that was posted in this forum numerous times. It says (not supported) beside compact mode which makes me feel like that this feature is going to be removed completely in the future. That's the tipping point where I will stop using Firefox completely.

So, coming to the question - wait - Subject is the question...
