I've never encountered this problem before... I am using a new computer but have used firefox exclusively for decades.

Every time i try to read a PDF, Firefox recognizes it as a .zip file, which it clearly isn't. I can't even choose acrobat reader as an option to open the files. If i manually go to the downloads tap and click on the file there, it immediately opens as a pdf in reader. What on earth is going on?

I am getting the message "Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www4.citizensbankonline.com/efs/servlet/efs/loginnew-wait.jsp" on this server. Reference #18.ad674d68.1618522318.738da43 " when I try to log on to my bank. I'm running Windows 8.1 with Windows Defender and have accessed this site for years. When I called the bank's tech support their response was "Why are you still using Firefox? Everybody uses Chrome now." I do not use Chrome, but Edge will access the web page with no problem. This has been occurring on and off for several weeks and I have tried all suggested solutions I've found here so far (clear cache, history, DNS prefetch.... ). I've also noticed numerous other posts with the same error message. Any ideas??

I just had to system-restore my PC and when I redownloaded firefox, all of my settings/toolbars/bookmarks were gone. I thought hitting "sync now" would restore them from my Firefox account and it did nothing. I've kept the same bookmarks and saved passwords through at least three machines, I don't know what I did wrong or why it isn't working now. I'm afraid that hitting "sync now" has just overwritten all of my stored data instead of restoring it as I thought it would. Please help.

Ever since I updated my firefox version the search bar will be missing random letters when I type them, or the suggestions will be missing letters. However this is only a visual bug, since pressing enter will search for what I typed. I've restarted and reinstalled but its still like this. Just wondering if anyone has a fix. See attached images.

Tab cannot be fixed to the left edge. Pinning a tab locks it to the left edge of the tab bar, but it no longer holds. A <mark is displayed at the left end of the tab bar. I can't identify if it's due to firefox settings or add-ons. The version of firefox is 87.0 windows10 64bit I got into this situation after restarting firefox.

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

After updating to Firefox version 87 on Mac, nearly every site I try to visit seems to be blocked. There is no warning or explanation shown it just fails to browse to the website. For example, I cannot browse to https://llbean.com. I understand that these websites have all sorts of trackers built-in, but this seems a bit ridiculous. I cannot find an explanation of how to fix this problem that is up-to-date and actually works.

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

Hi, I've just reinstalled Windows on my computer and I've logged in to Firefox to sync my bookmarks. My bookmarks from my previous Firefox install are still in the folder marked "Bookmarks Toolbar", but when I try to show the toolbar itself they are nowhere to be found. When I try to customize my browser layout I can't find the "Bookmarks Toolbar Items" and instead the "Import bookmarks" option is available. I can't seem to get my bookmarks into the toolbar itself.

I have installed Firefox as my default browser on a new iMac, but every time I open Firefox (after quitting it or shutting down my computer) it asks me AGAIN if i want to set Firefox as my default browser. If I say "yes", I have to start all over again setting My Yahoo as my home(opening) page and reset all the bookmark shortcuts I've put into my bookmarks tool bar.

I've confirmed in Firefox, in Safari, and in System Preferences that Firefox is set as my default browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Hi folks I had great problems logging in to my Barclays account on line via Firefox. Eventually I had to request Barclay's assistance and it turned out that Firefox was not compatable with their website .. I used Chrome and this worked perfectly.

The same has now happened with Viality Health.

Have any other folk experienced these (or similar) problems?

I would have liked to get Firefox to comment but cant find a relevant contact email.

Otherwise I find it a great browser and prefer to use this as it seems to represent the 'alternative' company.

Stay well

Hello Hello,


I have an addon that makes my bookmarks open in new background tabs (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/open-bookmarks-in-a-new-tab/). This works in all but one instance. If I am already on the "New Tab" page, the bookmark opens in that tab. Is there any way to make the bookmark open in a background tab while I am on the new tab page? Thanks!
