Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

Hiya there,

I work in customer support myself and was using Auto Text Expander for firefox by "Pete". Yesterday this firefox update has caused me to lose all of my data, completely putting me back to square 1 and affecting my performance.

On top of that, for the first time since working here I had to create some account when I was already logged in, help

I need you to please restore my shortcuts as soon as possible!

I look forward to hearing back from you so I can get this sorted please!

I am experiencing a problem with lockwise since months. In just few words I cannot see which password are stored and therefore I cannot even edit them (see the pict). The funny part is that the login/passwords data are there because I can use them after landing on any page where I have an account. That's to say that the only way I have to edit a password that I changed on a different browser is to visit the page and then change it. Another few examples? 1) If I enter in the search box any of the sites that should be (and indeed are) there, it cannot retrieve anything. 2) If I click insert new credential it does nothing (no box where to insert the new data)

Note! Browser update 94.0.2 (Mac) Logged in my FF account and Sync activated.

Howdy, fellow Firefox aficionados.

I'm running FF on a Windows 10 Home 64-bit desktop. Some time ago, I suddenly could no longer open Firefox because it couldn't find my Profile. So, I attempted to create a new one, but it would not allow me to do so.

"Changes Not Saved"

   "An unexpected Error has prevented your changes from being saved."

[See uploaded Image]

More than likely, either I, or one of my system maintenance programs wiped some data or folder. I have deleted Firefox and reinstalled it with the latest version, but this dilemma persists.

Thanks for reading my post and if you reply, a big Thanks!

Continuing to have issues with pinned tabs and, worse, Firefox crashing...like y'day with loss of all pinned tabs on powering up today?! Have posted issue several times with "FredMcD" being unable to help but who escalated the problem...with no response from Mozilla/Firefox! Needlessly spending a great deal of time restoring pinned tabs but sometimes cannot find them all. Does the "800 lbs" Mozilla care?

Hello together.

I'm experiencing the same problem as discussed in this cases that is not solved yet: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1312836 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333547 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1321038

Symptoms: After FF starting it loads pages fast enough. After several minutes of using pages start be loading very slow. Loading slowness increases until it becomes blocked continuously. Reload button has no effect. I tried everything from here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - No effect.

Work around done: When windows is loading in Safe Mode the problem disappeared. If I disable Windows Defender Firewall the the problem disappear and appear after firewall enabling again in several minutes (same as after FF restarting) When I go to <current network settings> and switch Network Profile from Public to Private or from Private to Public the problem disappear but goes back just in several minutes (same as after FF restarting). Windows 10 Restorehealth has no effect, and reports that everything is OK with system files (DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth ) The most strange thing Windows 10 In-place Upgrade has no effect.


I found out the core of problem is that Windows Firewall is blocking FF internal interprocess communication on local TCP ports. Yes, you would say it is not possible and firewall doesn't affect local port communication but in my case it is a fact. I used the ProcessMonitor from Windows Sysinternals, and Windows Defender Firewall with Advanced Security log. Screenshots shows this fact. On first two lines from Firewall log you see a Local Port Communication blocking, on ports 1401 and 1400. Next Screenshot from ProcessMonitor shows (see blue colored lines) that it was exactly FF communication, where I was trying to reload a page several times.

Any ideas what to do with it? It seems like Microsoft’s way fighting a concurrent web browsers, but I hope it isn’t.

Now I use FF version 94 but the problem starts from 88. I was trying FF downgrading to version 75 with no effect.

I have long used the option to have a separate address and search bar ("Add search bar in toolbar" in search settings). A few months ago, I changed that to "Use the address bar for search and navigation". The search bar is gone, but when I type a query into my combined address and search bar, I only get "We're having trouble finding this site".

Notes: -) My default search engine is DuckDuckGo, but it doesn't work either when I make Google my default search engine -) I can use the "this time search with..." buttons on bottom, but that's an extra step for every search -) My profile goes way back to the beginnings of Firefox. Any hidden settings that might not have been migrated properly in the past, and that I could check in the about:config?

I used different methods like this one but it seems none of them are working. These are steps I'm doing:

  • Closing firefox
  • Deleteing new logins.json and key4.db
  • copying old logins.json and key3.db

However as soon as I open firefox it will create a key4.db file and overwrite login.json. I checked my old login.json is in correct format.

Paypal's going through making me change my password, and I used the password generator for that. I guess something went wrong again, because it wants me to change my password yet again.

The problem with Firefox, is that when I hit Suggest Strong Password, all I get is the same one I already used. This is no help. Paypal says "The password has been used recently. Please try another one."

I expect it would generate a fresh one if I restarted Firefox, but that isn't always convenient, depending on what's loaded in other tabs, or in the process of downloading. So let's skip suggestions of restarting.

How do I get Firefox's password generator to generate a fresh password?

Hello! Something in my Firefox installation seems to be making several Google network (google.com / forcesafesearch.google.com / www.youtube-nocookie.com / m.youtube.com, and a couple of others) calls shortly after launch. I have a DNS sinkhole, so that is how I can see.

I have a few reputable extensions (or should be, from EFF, Firefox itself, or Ublock Origin), but it also happens in safe mode. I went through a good chunk of this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-stop-firefox-making-automatic-connections and still the calls occur

I am on Windows 10, with FF v93.

Thanks very much!

Whenever I am viewing a PDF and wish to download it or save a file from firefox, the save dialogue of the finder and where to save it does not appear. Only the initial firefox option of "Open file" or Save As dialogue appears. Once pressing Save As, nothing else happens. Furthermore when simply pressing Cmd + S to save the PDF no dialouge appears. When typing this message and attempting to add an image of a screenshot, once again the finder dialogue to select a file does not appear.

Is this a mac issue or firefox problem? I am running Mac OS 12.0.1 Monterey.

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)
