My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

When I first downloaded Firefox it opened normally and stayed open for around twenty seconds after which it crashed. Every subsequent attempt to open it has resulted in the outline of the program briefly flashing in the corner of my screen but otherwise nothing. It also doesn't appear in task manager. I have scoured the internet looking for solutions and have reinstalled it several times but nothing has worked. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After updating Firefox this morning on my main PC, I noticed that it didn't ask for my primary password.

I then noticed that it wasn't filling in passwords automatically.

My primary password has disappeared as well as my stored passwords. When I try to set a primary password it tells me that it can't change the password.

I tried creating a new profile and that didn't fix it.

I can use firefox on other devices and all the information is there. But I can't get my passwords on my primary PC.

How do I fix this?

i'm running Firefox 105.0.1 (64-bit) on a Win 11 PC.

I cannot login to my office.com accounts with Firefox. Chrome & Edge work fine. Attempting to use Firefox will get me as far as the "Stay signed in?" prompt, then dump me back to the sign in screen: I have refreshed, re-installed, installed a previous version, used Revouninstaller to get rid of all traces of Firefox, deleted the Mozilla folders from the appdata folder and reinstalled + tried using a private window. No joy with anything. I believe this is the key phrase from the error message (quoted below): "client request loop"

I updated my Firefox today and now videos do not play.

I had this problem back in April after an update and I spent weeks troubleshooting it. Eventually I got it to work after trying all of the following (then, and again now):

Things I've Tried: 1.) Clearing data (cache and cookies) 2.) Turning off "Strict Mode" 3.) Running CCleaner 4.) Disabling/enabling HW acceleration 5.) Checking that the DRM box is checked (and trying it without it checked) 6.) Refreshing Firefox 7.) Uninstalling/Reinstalling 8.) Updating my Windows install 9.) Updating drivers 10.) Disabling all Firefox extensions 11.) Running without extensions 12.) Running in Firefox Troubleshooting Mode 13.) Running Windows in Safe Mode with Networking 14.) Running a fresh install of Firefox without signing in after deleting all traces of Firefox from my PC (including Program Data folders, registry entries, etc.)

What finally worked back in April was to dive into "about:config" and change "media.rdd-processenable" to "false".

That fix does not work this time around.

In the meantime I've been using Brave and having no issues. I've tried video playback in Chrome, Opera, and Edge on this computer with no issues. This playback problem is exclusive to Firefox.

Video playback still works just fine on my 4 home PCs running Windows 10 and Pop_OS (3 self-built, one Asus laptop) using this same build of Firefox.

Other/Rant: I suspect this is a Firefox/Windows 11 problem. Most likely this is not something I can fix myself, but it's incredibly frustrating since I'm buried deep in the Mozilla ecosystem and use it for work. I'd prefer not to have to swap between browsers just so I can watch videos; too many windows open on this tiny work laptop isn't fun to juggle. Basic video playback is the #1 thing I use my web browser for at both work and home so it'd be nice if this irritating, months-long, unacceptable issue were resolved. A modern browser that has video playback issues? What good is it then? What's most irritating is that it seems I'm the one of a very small number of users with this issue, since I see very little posted about it online.

I've been a Firefox user primarily for almost half a decade now - moved over from Chrome for privacy issues. Never had a problem until 4/22 of this year and considering it's still an issue 3 months later... it has me re-evaluating the reliability and my commitment to an otherwise amazing browser.
