Hello

I am currently using Ubuntu 18.04 and Firefox Quantum 59.0.2 64-bit. On some websites, I am unable to select the password field either using tab or a mouse click to be able to enter a password. This leaves me unable to login. However, this doesnt seem to happen on all password fields.

For example on https://reddit.com I can enter username and password on the field on the right. However, if I click on Login hyperlink on 'Want to join? Log in or sign up in seconds.', I get a popup which I am unable to click the password field on.

I have also seen this problem on https://abnzb.com

I have tried to run in safe-mode but the problem persists.

My addons are Gnome shell integration, Enhanced Steam, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock origin.

Also, to add to this. When I right click on the password text fields, I do not get a menu popup. I am not sure if this is related or not.

My bookmarks have vanished. This problem began when I had iTunes and Firefox open. My iTunes songs were "skipping," which had never happened before. I closed Firefox and iTunes, and I ran my Piriform CCleaner program to clear out temporary files, which I do regularly.

I ended up updating iTunes to make it work, but not before my bookmarks disappeared with the message on my browser: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem."

Worse, Firefox won't allow me to add new bookmarks.

I followed all topics in support and nothing has changed this problem. I've restarted and shut down the computer. I ran a full-system security scan. I even uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

Please help!

Using Windows 7 64bit. Firefox opens and runs a separate page in the background. The extra page does not open and the only way to see it is to open ctrl/alt/delete and that is the only way to close it but I have to go to processes to close it, it will not close in applications. Today Firefox a page loaded in the background before I opened my FF browser. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox twice to no avail. I have removed all themes - nothing. Please help me fix this, I have used Firefox for years and love it but this latest mess is causing my computer to overload its ram and loading too many temp files.

I bookmark something and it goes to the recent bookmark list but when I click show all bookmarks I get three no title folders. There is nothing in the folder. Where are my bookmarks saving to? How do i get them back so I see them all?

Also i want to add. I backed up my entire pc and reset back to factory in December 2017 I think. And i didn't back up firefox right so I lost almost everything. I had an old back up from 2014 which I used to recover some bookmarks but all after was lost.

Actually my entire computer is weird now I'm locked out of changing all the back up data from the reset but I have accepted it now.

Please help. Thank you.

Since today morning firefox has been starting continuously. At first it was Gah! Something went wrong crashes. I ran a spyware check with malaware and removed a couple of trojans. After that firefox as a whole began to crash. I uninstalled and reinstalled firefox but the issue still continues. I also removed the add ons but nothing is working. Some of the more recent crashes are not visible here.

4 more crashes today after 2 yesterday. will send the error messages upon request. I have reported this before. I thought it might have gotten better as only two crashes yesterday but today after around four got bonkers again. Please help me / Could it be I have an avast blocker for ads and such running. Could this be the problem? Got rid of a full time running Malwarebytes and updated as much as I could except for motherboard drivers which I can not do. Might just have to jump shop as this interferes with doing my Amazon Mturk work. Might have to join the evil empire and go to chrome of all else fails and really do not want to. Any further advice might help. This all started with the new updates about 8 or 9 days ago.

tl;dr Firefox sync is constantly synchronising an old set of bookmarks and, potentially passwords etc despite me wanting to upload my changed set. I need to know how to force my current local copy to overwrite whatever is stored in the cloud to avoid having to restore my bookmarks every few hours. How can I do that? The only other option is to disable bookmark sync entirely. This is on Windows 10 running Firefox 59.0.2 (64-bit).

Long version if anyone cares. I like to be thorough.

For the longest time I've used XMarks to handle my bookmarks across multiple computers and browsers and had no issues with it until the past few months. It started failing to sync or would partially sync and I didn't notice because it never gave me any error messages or pop-up warnings. I only found out when I had to format and reinstall because the most recent backup was from so long ago that I temporarily lost a lot of important bookmarks. Luckily, as I used multiple computers I had another computer I could pull them from and did that.

From that point on I've been using Firefox sync as much as possible. However, Firefox has started pulling a set of bookmarks to my computer from the server that is missing a lot of what I use frequently and one of those changes involves overwriting my Bookmarks Toolbar. It literally just happened again as I was typing this out. I can and have restored from a backup file I am now maintaining but every day it will sync and I have to restore from the old backup and it's driving me crazy. How can I force my local set onto the cloud sync so they're matching?

Thanks!

On 4-7-18 Firefox seemed to glitch (opening new tabs as new windows) so I rebooted my machine (Win10 x64). Once I loaded windows and went into FF to play an Amazon video I got an error message saying Firefox was installing components to play video or audio. In looking in the Add-ons Manager I seed that the Widevide add-on has an error and says it will install shortly. This morning I uninstall and reinstall Firefox hoping it will correct, it is still in error and not installing. I looked up how to manually install this component and tried the solution found in article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1207502 however the link for the zip file times out and fails to download.

Is there another way to force FF to install the Widevine component so I can watch Amazon videos or is the install server down? I really don't want to use Chrome.

Some time ago i had a problem with a malware toolbar. I uninstalled it and got rid of all the extensions and add-ons that were related or even kind of suspicious and it solved the problems. But since I solved this problem, i can't get to set my newtab page, i can only see a blank page. I would like to go back to the about:newtab menu and i know it can't be done with the add-on for that, but i tried to put different urls with it and it didn't work with any of them. Again, this is the only problem i'm having now, i don't have any suspicious add-ons or extensions.

Thanks for the help.

I have a unique and perplexing touchscreen issue using the latest Firefox browser on a 2017 Surface Pro (8/256) with the latest software and firmware updates.

When I add a new tab and subsequently try to delete that new tab, Firefox often freezes meaning that the browser does not feedback/refresh on my clicking (touching). HOWEVER when I force a browser refresh by clicking on any other window Firefox refreshes and acts on all the clicks I made while it was frozen. The clicks were processed by Firefox but it appears that the browser is not repainting after each click. To add insult to injury when I use a USB mouse this does not occur. Also I run identical Firefox on another desktop via mouse with no issues.

Certainly this seems to point to a Windows software issue but this issue does happen with any other apps including IE and Edge.

Among other things, actions I have tried include:

1. Run in safe mode 2. Re-install with new profile 3. Toggle many of recommended about:config settings 4. Change themes 5. Re-installed Windows touch screen driver

Below is my troubleshooting report.

Any ideas? Richard
