Title. I've followed every guide I've found but the issue still persists. I've created a new profile, reinstalled ff after deleting the whole file from my pc, deleted all cookies for a dozen times, disabled all extensions, started ff in that problem mode or whatever it's called and I still can't login to certain websites.

I type my login credentials, press "continue" and nothing happens.

I hate how much information Google gathers from their users but I used Chrome for five or more years and I never had this issue with their browser. Not once. Even now I constantly have to go back using Chrome because with it I have no issues logging in to the sites while on FF I just can't.

What is going on?

I have a work and personal profile. On my work profile, when I go to amazon, I see the pricetag icon in the URL bar and it works as expected. However, on my personal profile, it's not showing up at all; no icon, no prompt, it's like it doesn't exist for that profile. I've restarted both profiles, and it still isn't showing up.

I'd prefer to do my shopping on my personal profile, and not my work profile. Any ideas why it's not working on one?

I'm using firefox 119.0.1 Version on a Steam deck(SteamOS) and installed using the Discover app

when in browser i cannot click on the "Open the file browser" icon that appears on websites. Also i cannot open the Downloads folder within the Menu bar from firefox I tried entering into safe-mode and still couldn't open I also tried using another User Profile under "Right click Firefox -> firefox profile manager" to try to see if it was something from my user profile that was causing the issue but i also couldnt open in another profile.

I also tried on a different browser to see if it was my device problem but i could open it. i tried on Brave and Chrome and it worked.

i dont know what to do, this was working normally last week and now it doesnt work, Even in another profile with no configuration done no extension and not logged in the "Open file" button doesnt work

Every time I try to login to my bank using Firefox New Private Window I get a message "Unable to login. Try again later." But if I then switch to Microsoft Edge browser using its private window I have no problem, no delay, in logging in. It has occurred to me that Edge is deliberately blocking or somehow delaying my login attempt with Firefox. Could this be?

With increasing frequency, when I open Yahoo in Firefox, there are no photos on the site and I can't access my email. In order to fix this, I have to shut off my computer and do a clean reboot. Then it works for a while, but then, all of a sudden I have the problem again. When I use a different browser (Chrome, Edge), I never have this problem. I thought it was Ghostery that was interfering, because Ghostery does screen out a lot of stuff, so I turned Ghostery off. It made no difference. What solution do you have to offer for this problem? I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Edge, because Firefox's general user interface is so far superior, but the issue I have described is a serious one. (There are two or three other websites that also don't work with Firefox when it comes to user doing data input on the site, but I'll be sending a separate inquiry on that).

Thank you, Alan Rosenbaum

I decided to migrate from chrome to firefox, sadly, my experience has been faced with random slow downs or partial loads even on a fresh install. It's weird but it seems that at random times some websites will refuse to fully load or even start loading, it appears that the app is just hanging. This is usually fixed after several refreshes. Oddly enough, even on a fresh install, if I attempt to load up the same website while in private browsing, it loads right away, again this is consistent even on a fresh install, the attached image was an attempt to load youtube after signing in on a fresh install without add-ons, I tried loading up youtube in private and it worked right away. Chrome wasn't presenting this problem on my computer for years. Any ideas? My computer specs are high enough where they shouldn't matter. I'm running an AMD GPU (7900 XTX) but I haven't found any know issues regarding these, to even discard that, I disabled hardware acceleration, but the issue persisted. Running up to date windows 10, installing latest version of firefox.

Hi there, I have configured Firefox to remove cookies after closing it. At the same time, I have added some webs that I usually use as exceptions, allowing to remember cookies in those. However, I have the following question: if I reject all cookies except for the mandatories ones in a website that I added to my "remember list", does that mean that future entrances in that web will be with only essential cookies?

As an example, if I mark https://www.bbc.com/ as cookies, and the first time I enter I reject all non-essential cookies, next times I enter in the bbc will I be navigating with only the cookies I accepted on this first entrance? Or allowing a site automatically accepts all cookies?

Thank you very much on advanced.

I've created 22 themes and in all of them the drop down menus such as "downloads", "history", "extensions", and "application menu", all became white instead of dark like they used to be. I really don't want to go through the process of fixing and reuploading them, I'd apprecate you looking into this and hopefully fixing it with a simple update. Please fix this problem, thank you!

Hello! Since updating to the last version (119.0.1), Firefox started keeping my open tabs between sessions. This is a behavior I don't want, and the only solution that I found told me to enable "clear history on close", however that is also not ideal, because I don't want to clear my history. The "Open previous windows and tabs" setting is off and my homepage is set to Firefox Default. I don't know where else to look for such a setting, except in the about:config, but even there I'm not sure which one is causing the issue. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Windows 10 Pro 21H2, Firefox 119.0.1

A tab for the Etsy website automatically appears every time FF starts up. How to stop this?

Just began after using the site a couple of times, but I did not indicate or click a setting on the Etsy site to ask for this.

All solution suggestions seem to be for pop-up ads, and don't work to block a website. Is there a way to block this?

New computer (Windows 11) shows 'Old Firefox Data'. Opened hidden files. Using File Explorer found Profile Folder & renamed it 'old'. Copied and pasted 'Old Firefox Data' as new profile. Firefox would not open. Had to remove etc and Firefox worked again. Thought this maybe the easiest way to get my Bookmarks back.

PS Presume Profile Folder does not contain Thunderbird Addresses?

I have been a FF fan for almost 20 years and this is the first time sucn a phenomenon has happened. Inside Manage Cookies and Data my Storage is blank nothing is showing and yet the sites I visited are listed as well as the cookies. I have cleared everything hoping to start over would resolve this. My husband has a separate profile on our desktop computer with Windows 10 We have the same setting and yet he is not experiencing this at all. At the end of a session which is usually 1.5 hours I delete the sites that are taking up storage in the MB numbers but for the last 3 days the sites are listed again as are the cookies but under storage nothing? I have attached a screenshot there is not much there because my husband deleted all data but imagine my surprise after 1.5 hours to see all the web sites i visited listed the cookies too an zero storage? I tried to troubleshoot this but could not find anything about it on the Internet. I sincerely hope you can resolve the issue. And yes I have most recent version of FF Thank you in advance. Sincerely, Jamie Dorfman

Firefox blocking video players?

Ever since about a week ago, my Firefox just started... bugging. Twitch doesn't work, now Netflix doesn't work, basically anything that plays videos (except for YouTube) doesn't seem to be working.

On Twitch, if a person is live and streaming, upon clicking their stream to view it, it's suddenly offline, even if the chat is going and the "this person is live" notification is there. Netflix gives me a f7351 error. Websites with online media (like free movies on putlocker) have multiple streaming services attached and neither of them works.

I've cleared all cookies, cache, data and history.

This is only concerning Firefox, other web browsers work perfectly.

Extensions on my Firefox are as follows: BetterTTV, Dark Mode, DocsAfterDark, Facebook Container, FrankerFaceZ, I don't care about cookies, Instagram Dark Theme, New XKit, TinEye, Tumblr Saviour. No adblocks, no nothing.

My operating system is Windows 10, 64bit, Firefox is updated to 119.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated as this has been the bane of my existence for a while.

All of a sudden the Firefox password I've been using for a long time stopped working. I went through the reset process, set a new password, and it still doesn't work! What I am doing wrong? Keeps asking me to re-enter the password, and when I do, it says it's not correct. Is this a widespread known issue?
