When I bring up the Firefox browser the page has macro blocking as best as I can describe it on the home page, and also when I bring up website pages. Portions of the page block out periodically during all sessions, the update didn't fix anything with my experience. I've turned off hardware acceleration, turned off all extensions as was prescribed and the problem persists and I don't know what else I can do. I have stopped using Firefox as my default browser for the reasons stated and I haven't found any solutions on the forums.

When loading certain websites, the images load correctly, but the text is scrambled (see attached image). About 1/3 of the sites I visited today were scrambled, others loaded fine. This just started to happen last week. I tried downloading and installing a new copy of Firefox but it did not fix the problem. I cleared the cache but no luck. This is on an iMac operating on IOS 10.9.5. Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue?

Hello Team, Firefox is already running but not responding. The old firefox process must be closed to open a new window. I'm running a windows 10 laptop. I tried to resolve this issue 1) through task manager, but the issue didn't resolve mentioned in the browser 2) Remove the profile lock file, but it didn't show any folders/files.

However I'm able to install and use other browsers like edge, chrome and opera. Can someone help me to resolve this issue and use firefox browser?

I play cards at cardzmania.com using Firefox. If I exit Firefox and reload it, cardzmania remembers exactly where I was. Formerly, I could stop this by clearing the cache files at c:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Temp andc:/users/user_name/AppData/Local/Mozilla. This no longer works. Even if I use Privazer to clear temporary Internet files, cardzmania remembers me.

In short, Mozilla is storing user data in a file I can't find and empty.

This disturbs me.

I'm not terribly concerned about cardzmania taking over my computer for nefarious purposes or spying on me, but the inability to find and delete files that permit cardzmania to remember who I am means other programs could do the same.

These last few days, maybe since the last update, Facebook is grudgingly slow and doesn't sometimes even load photos. Today it isn't even loading notifications on the right hand side.

With the photos, it shows just a space holder with text saying things "May be an image of a car" in the top left hand corner.

Hello all,

Lately I received a report from some colleagues that a certain feature is not working in Firefox that appears to be working on any other browser.

When drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook (Microsoft 365 Apps for enterprise) to a drop-field in Firefox (88.0.1 - 64-bit) nothing happens.

When using Firefox we can drag/drop files from Windows Explorer, but not from Outlook.

The same fields do work flawlessly when drag/dropping e-mails and/or attachments from Microsoft Outlook in Google Chrome, Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Safari. So Firefox is the only browser - on several OS's - that does not allow e-mails/attachments to be dropped from Microsoft Outlook. We have tested multiple users on different workstation and we have tested drop-fields from several web applications.

Surprisingly I cannot find any solution to this. The only similar cases I was able to find are from a couple of years ago but are about the other way around (so drag/dropping files FROM Firefox to another application).

At this moment I am advising my colleagues to use another browser. But we really want this to work properly with any browser of choice. Hope this community can help us out.

The update to Firefox 89.0 did not fix this problem.

Note: UAC is enabled on the workstations. Disabling does not affect anything. Tested attachments: .pdf, .docx, .html & .xlsx

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

Hello,

On a fresh win10 installation, I installed the latest version of firefox (90.0.2). However, firefox won't start after that.

I tried starting from the command line in safe mode (firefox.exe -safe-mode), and I see very briefly (less than a second) a window with the title bar "Open Firefox in troubleshot Mode ?" starting to appear, but it disappears almost instantly.

A similar thing (dialog window briefly appearing) happens when I try to open the profile manager from the command line.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, with no effect.

Any idea what could be the issue ?

JP

PS : this is posted from a mac machine, hence the mistaken mac tag. The issue is about a win10 installation

Hello, my hero! I need your help. Look at the screenshot and you will understand faster. Is it possible to return the icons to Firefox dropdown menus after Firefox removed this functionality in June updates? For example, if you open "Application menu" you cannot work fast because you have to read all those menus. It makes my work too slow! I have got used to visual pictograms, but now they are gone, not-thanks to you Firefox devs!!! New tab, New window, New private window, Bookmars, History, Downloads, Passwords, all of these are just words, just text! It used to be so convenient just to quickly click the icon, and now i have to read all the wordsto hopefully find the required function. Can you make icons for those menus, please? Or at least, is there any extension for this? p.s. Come on Firefox, you have only made the design worse because it slows down people's ability to find the required things. How can this text be better than icons??? Do I have to count them or should I have a reaction of an insect? p.s.s. Firefox 90.0.2.
