Firefox always crashes when I download a file. After that, when I reinstalled firefox again, the situation did not go away, but it was fixed only after restarting the computer.

I wonder if this was due to hardware or software error? I recently renewed some computer parts.

Crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/b48749b1-d5f4-40fa-8ccb-34c9a0211128#tab-details

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This morning Firefox decided to block my website! I have spent hours now attempting everything the tutorials have laid out to fix this but I'm still getting error 403 msg. Have repeatedly cleared history and am almost in tears. Spent many days to have this website perfected for my business and now I can't even access it on Firefox - which was up until today the only browser I use on my pc, ipad or phone for years now. Please help! Sincerely, Almost In Tears Here aka Stefanie H.

Hi read your article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-to-fix-preferences-wont-save

I have changed the action for content type "mail to" to my default email app outlook. Despite this when I click on an embedded web page mail to link, the action reverts to the new office "mail" app which I do not want. When I get to the section in your article "User.js file overriding Firefox settings" as the next step in trying to fix the issue, and follow the instruction "Click the Firefox menu - and select Exit." then I am thrown out of the dialogue, it is not logical. Please advise as I don't even know if the user.js is causing the persistence?

Thanks Andrew

After an update earlier this year I began having the cursor freeze when I was typing in any text field such as in Gmail compose.

Even as I type in this field it has occurred. I was using backspace to edit out a phrase. The cursor remained at the left as ~15 characters were removed. Then both the keyboard and cursor commands ceased to be executed. For ~3 minutes the screen remains locked with the cursor separated from the trailing text by those 15 blank spaces. Then all "stored commands" are executed. During the lockup I am able to use touchscreen to open all other applications, but can not close.

I am in 94.0.2 as I use your auto update setting. I used "refresh" without remedy. I even uninstalled Foxfire, closed the laptop, restarted, and performed a fresh install. The only plugins are the one you install and one from google.

I am now using another browser for all my email work! Frankly, it is apt to become my default if I cannot resolve this aggravation.

Looking forward to your suggestions/tips. Let me know if I can supply further information.

Peace/Out

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Hi folks! Is this a bug?

Image1 with Firefox. Image2 with Edge.

Do you see how the (white) title bar crosses into screen2 when it's maximized on screen1 ? Firefox is the only software that does this.

Gracias por la help.

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I cannot find any way to report problems, this seems to be the only way. When I try to open any PDF file, I have to Browse to find my pdf viewer (Flexipdf 2022). I do that and also check your "Do this automatically" option. Every time I try to open a pdf after that I still have to go through all the same Browse steps. I also set up Flexipdf 2022 in the Applications section of General Settings (Portable Document Format (PDF) (application/pdf)) and it is just deleted or never saved. The next time I look or try to use it, it’s gone. This is obviously a bug in your system, please correct. Thank You.

I am looking for a way to simply delete 100's of cookies, but not all, with out using the very limited "Manage cookies and site data" window. It takes forever to delete 5 or 6 at a time. What is the replacement for when you could type "." and this window expanded to full page and the selection process was so simple?

Hi I'm a student and tedsmith1378@gmail.com account holder. I decided to install Windows 11 a few minutes ago and synced my Firefox account, but unfortunately I forgot that I had to remove the recovery code before installing Windows. On the other hand, because I recently changed my phone, I do not have access to my previous phone. But I am a student and I desperately need my usernames and account passwords as well as my bookmarks for my research and lessons. In the attachment, I will send you a screenshot of my browser a few days before changing Windows I am desperately asking for your help. I can answer any question you have about your account.
