Firefox 67. After last update, I cannot get new tabs to open at the end. The suggestions for earlier versions of Firefox don't work.

I want a related tab to open as the next tab and a new tab to open at the right end of the tabs. Under about:config, I tried to change browser.tabs.insertAfterCurrent and browser.tabs.insertRelatedAfterCurrent. No combination of true and false makes any difference - a new tab always opens after the current tab.

The "Customize..." feature lets you move around icons and other things in Firefox's interface. When you apply these customizations, they *should* be saved in your browser, so that the next time you open Firefox, you have the same customizations you applied earlier. Whenever I restart my computer, these settings are completely reset to their defaults and I have to apply the same customizations every time. How do I fix this???

Since the last update, whenever I close Firefox and restart my computer, my tabs are not restored when I open Firefox again. I use Firefox at work, and have tabs for various websites I use daily. Our policy at my job is to close all programs and restart the computer at the end of the day. I used to do this and have no problems opening Firefox with all my tabs restored. However, since last week, my tabs are gone when I open Firefox. This ONLY happens after restarting the computer. If I close Firefox and then reopen it 10 minutes later, my tabs are still there. I also no longer have the option to restore the session. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Flash player is either screwed up or something else - or Firefox is blocking videos. Having experienced problems (videos just sit there or won't load at all) I've just uninstalled Flash Player and am attempting to reinstall a new version - but it won't let me. Seemingly there's another version being loaded - but no way can I find that or know what's happening, so I'm stuck.

The whole thing stems from my inability to watch any videos on Firefox - not even YouTube, BBCi LiveLeak clips or even porn. Yesterday everything went well but today I can't even see gifs on Imgur. What the hell is happening? Why is Firefox blocking me?

Whenever I include an animated GIF in a tweet on Twitter, it displays for a split second then instantly turns/stays black and I have no idea why.

It does not matter if it's a GIF made by me or if I select one from the menu.

The problem is still there in Safe Mode.

Chrome (on the same computer) does not have this problem.

Animated GIFs on web pages display fine. ONLY animated GIFs *I* post turn black and ONLY in Firefox.

Hi, I recently installed the new firefox on my mac and lost all my bookmarks. No problem, I imported them and they appeared. But every time I restart my Mac, I have the same issue - no bookmarks, browsing history, passwords gone and I have to do it all again. Super annoying. Sometimes a screen appears asking me to start a firefox account to sync bookmarks etc - just add my email and password, which I do and it tells me my password is wrong. Which it isn't. So I try another email and password. Again it tells me its wrong. Argh. Stuck in a tech black hole and can't get out! Help please...!

on other browsers I can see the time and exact date of my browsing history. I cannot seem to find that on Firefox. It lists the last 7 days all together as far as I can see. I cannot tell which day I was at which site. The SORT doesn't seem to help either. Am I missing something? Can I get exact date and time from Mozilla? Thanks

I lose internet response about once every 24 hours and have to re-boot my computer. I think that, at first, re-starting Firefox did the trick, but now a re-boot is always needed. This seems to coincide with the 3rd May urgent fix (ref. from my notes at the time : hotfix-reset-xpi-verification-timestamp-1548973).

How do I get back to my April status, with uninterrupted internet access? Phil.

Hello,

I have a problem with my Firefox Monitor account. All was working fine, but I've change my Password, and now I can connect anymore... When I click to login, then it recognize my Firefox Account, I set my new password, and then I have an error message :

Erreur

must-be-signed-in

I'm from France, sorry for my english. Could you help me please ?

I've clean Cache And Cookies, I've also try to open Firefox without modules activated. It is still the same... And it is the same on my smartphone, so I assume that there is a problem with my Firefox account, related to Monitor.

I created a new Firefox Monitor, in order to check some other emails, but as soon as I log with my main account, I have the same message, told me "must be signed in"...

Firefox also has 3 popups telling me to get an account (Which I have and am signed in to) almost every single time I open it. Is there a fix or should I just switch to Chrome?

After years and years of trial and error I finally, (I said finally) got my home page like I want it; with 3 top rows of icons of allllll of the places I regularly visit. Icons may be a incorrect term. It's a little square picture with a f on it and when I wanna go to Facebook I just click on that little square f and go straight to Facebook. Ain't that neat. Well, this morning when I logged in, two of the rows were gone the row that's remaining the squares keep moving around. Anyway, I want my 3 rows back and locked in place like it was yesterday. Probably never happen, huh?

Today I got a new case for my computer so I moved all of the hardware into the new one, keeping my configuration the same however. The only changes that I am aware of are the hard drives are probably in different SATA ports than they originally were. The PC was shut down correctly before I moved the components, and the passwords were definitely there, and logging into sync is not returning the passwords.

I am running Arch Linux with LXQT with Firefox version 67, and have also noticed that I have a logins.json.corrupt file in my default profile folder.

Thanks
