I am using a Cambio W101 tablet with windows 10 21H1 and Firefox 93.0.

After getting the BSOD with the error message DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE I followed the recommended suggestions like checking the drivers, removing the sleep mode, changing the power options.

I continue to get the BSOD only in one specific situation but frequently. It is when I use Libreoffice as my active window, while Firefox is inactive in the background. When I use either only Libreoffice or only Firefox as my active window nothing happens. There has also not been problems with other programs.

Does an inactive Firefox do something which triggers the BSOD?

Given the increasing number and sophistication of threats, I prefer to do most of my work on the Web with the browser sandboxed, using Sandboxie+ (latest version).

FF 92.x worked fine with Sandboxie+.

FF 93.0 does not.

FF 93.0 sandboxed will not open sites, including National Weather Service ones, local TV stations news sites, national news sites (e.g. Huffington Post), or will take 10+ minutes to open the sites that it will open.

Again, 92.x did not have these problems.

I've looked at the Settings values, and see no difference between the ones I had in 92.x and the ones in 93.0.

The latest Chrome (ugh) version works fine sandboxed - opens sites w.o. problems.

Is there a fix?

Thanks.

I have used Firefox on Tues, but starting yesterday I am unable to open the browser at all. I uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times and haven't had any success. I recently end tasked Cortana. Is that why I can't open the browser? Or is it something else. Please help. Nothing online seems to work for me. Mind you I can open and use other browsers. Thank you in advance.

      • i get no other explanation from firefox. just the crash reporter popup and maybe a "do you want to refresh" popup.

While there are some things I like about FireFox, I use another browser for the vast majority of my browser use... I'm running Linux, and it seems that FireFox has locked itself in as the default browser... Since I am unable to modify that condition, is my only recourse to uninstall FireFox? Or, am I missing some secret handshake?

What's the story with Firefox being so madly in love with iTunes, the moment I open Firefox, iTunes opens. Worse even. I can't close iTunes. It keeps opening up until I close Firefox.

Is this some kind of another MANDATE now? Part of the NWO? You MUST accept iTunes to jump into your face if you use Firefox?

Makes me dump this piece of intrusive waste for good, really. I am so sick and tired of this Tech-Tyranny ruling our brains, telling us what we MUST WANT and accept.

Hi!

I want to change the default serif and monospace fonts (Atkinson Hyperlegible and Hack, respectively) in Firefox. However, the fonts that are listed in the advanced font settings appear to be a specific list that doesn't update with the system-installed fonts, so I cannot pick the previously mentioned fonts. I tried working around by tweaking with the about:config values, but so far no luck. Any advice?

Thanks in advance, Lucas

I am running "Firefox Browser 93.0", and I have Windows 10 Pro Version 21H1, OS Build 19043.1288. I am unable to watch certain video's, as an example, the video in this link: [https://www.wandtv.com/news/illinois-.../article_24b92a86-32c4-11ec-a487-3bb3f17fa133.html] won't play. It use to work, but something has changed, not by me. It will play that same video using the "Edge Browser" so there is nothing wrong with the website. However, I can play this "YouTube Video": [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAJSYk5wMiA] I also tried another link in their website, this is the weather link: [https://www.wandtv.com/weather] it starts to play, but then stops and nothing ever plays. Here is another link I tried on their website: [https://www.wandtv.com/sports/fans-ma.../article_f94f4ade-32e0-11ec-9351-ef71f52b96cd.html] It won't play either. But they all play in the "Edge Browser!" Any ideas on what changed and how do I change it back, so they will play? I prefer Firefox Browser to any other browser! Do you know what the issue could be? I appreciate your time! NiceSeeingYou

Just trying to convert to Linux from windows (cinnamon 20.2) using the same display (3840 x 2160) Firefox on Linux scrollbars are a lot narrower than on windows and menu bar icons are too small. I cannot find any settings to enlarge these on Firefox on linux.

I estimate that the windows scroll bar is 300% wider than in Linux (Using screen ruler Linux scroll bars are 6 pixels and bitwarden icon is 12 pixels)

The usability of Firefox is questionable for me like this so I really hope there is a setting to make using Firefox a comfortable experience ( I have default font set to 20 and default zoom to 150% )

Firefox crashed and now when I open it it shows the error message: "You've launched an older version of Firefox. Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

The only options are to Exit or to Create a new profile. I had to create a new one just to open Firefox and try to fix it.

I logged into the Firefox account and not a single password, bookmark or anything is in my profile.

I go to about:profiles and I see both of the profiles, the new one as default, and the old one. I open the old profile by clicking on Launch profile on new browser, and I get the same error

I checked in several articles and threads like this https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/oyofoi/opting_out_of_beta_for_stable_without_requiring_a/

I cannot find compatibility.ini file anywhere. The old profile folder has about 750 MB and the new profile has 150 MB. I tried to restart without add ons and no change. I am using Windows I have not tried to update Firefox or to have a second installation. I am running 91.2.0esr (64-bit) and is up to date.

I really need to recover my bookmarks and passwords.

The other day I downloaded SaveFrom.net Helper but then shortly after I deleted it. The program was deleted from the computer except that the green line with the program name shows as an extension on the bar at the top of the Firefox page.

I cannot delete it. If I delete it once it reappears next time I load Firefox. The extension does not show up in add ons and extensions in Tools Firefox.

I have read an earlier reply that suggests delete Firefox and reinstall Firefox and that will get rid of it.

However, I am not anxious to try that as over time I have already extensions ad add ons and other customisation of Firefox, including all my bookmarks and I don't want to lose these and start again.

So here is my question. As the program is deleted and as their extension does not show up in Tools and then adddons, can I assume that the existence of the program name as an extension on one of the title bars at the top of Firefox is just an irritation and that this SaveFrom program cannot in any way add or do anything to my computer?

I can then live with it rather than deleting Firefox and starting again.

I would be so grateful for your help.

Thank you.
