I'm getting a blank (white) screen when my Win 7 pc boots up to the desktop (see attached screen shot). It has a small FireFox logo at the upper left corner. After about a minute this window will close revealing the desktop. If you try to close it, it says it isn't responding. As a test, I uninstalled FF and then rebooted. This window didn't open up. I can't tell if it is a FF issue or if some program is trying to use FF on startup but failing. Has anyone else had this issue?

Recently I had to reset my general domain password (organization is split between production and general domain\network without domain trust, proxy is part of general network, I'm part of production so we have to authenticate to proxy). I have to do this every 6 months. After this last change, and after I input my credentials, Firefox 62.0.3 (and 62.0.2) no longer pops-out the "remember my password" option. 1. Option "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" is on 2. Proxy is not on the list of exceptions 3. Yes, I have removed old authentication from the list of "Saved Logins" 4. Yes "Firefox will remember my History" If I input my new username and password (which is asked only once during session), Firefox works just fine until I close it. Next time it starts, Firefox once again asks for username and password and do not offer to "remember" this credentials.

Thank you.

Hello, I hatch that Firefox changes the colors of the web pages I create. For example, if I create the graphics with a blue color, it becomes either darker or lighter when I go to view the web page. The same happens with the red color that divernta stronger. It seems to me that there is a problem with saturation. This problem doesn't arise if I open the same web page on Safari, Chrome or Opera. Is there a way to solve the problem? I use OSX 10.13.4.

Thank you

I am having the exact same problem listed here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224880

But none of the solutions there work.

Of course since I did not already have an account here, I was forced to create this duplicate question.

I was using Firefox fine all day, then suddenly Copy/Paste stopped working. Inside Firefox, the option for Copy still appears and can be selected, but when you Paste within Firefox or anywhere else on the system, things copied in Firefox are not available. Copying outside of Firefox works just fine. Using Firefox 62.0 (64-bit) on macOS 10.12.6

Update: And as soon as I posted this, now Copy/Paste is working, but only within Firefox; Firefox is now acting as if it has its own independent clipboard, accessible only within Firefox. This is happening everywhere within Firefox, regardless of website.

I have one laptop and one desktop, both running Fx smoothly for years before recent update. This month I kept getting "Gah. Your tab just crashed." "Content Encoding Error" messages or loading forever on both computers. Tried many things but in vain, those include

  • starting in safe mode
  • reinstalling Firefox
  • disabling hardware acceleration
  • disabling multi-process tabs
  • enabling "prevent accessibility service from accessing your browser"

Having newest updates of win10 and graphic driver on both computers (my laptop is ASUS EeeBook), crash reports as below, any advice would be appreciated.

Until Firefox 62.0, I was able to pin separate taskbar icons for separate, simultaneously running Firefox profiles in Windows 10 by doing the following:

1) Add about:config boolean: "taskbar.grouping.useprofile" set to "true." (Described in this Mozilla bug-fix: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=577867)

2) Set target of each separate pinned icon to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p [user-profile-name] -no-remote

However, with the latest update these settings have no longer have the intended effect, and open instances of multiple profiles are grouped into one taskbar icon.

Is there a new way to pin separate taskbar icons for separate, simultaneously running profiles in Windows 10?

Every now and then, I get the 'Firefox Red Screen of Caution' about the site I'm attempting to visit. It's shown as a Deceptive Site, and I'm urged to NOT visit it. One option open to me is to 'Ignore Warning' and proceed. This works most of the time, but occasionally even clicking that option does not allow me to bypass Firefox's well-intentioned blockade and have to use an alternative browser. How do I deal with this otherwise?

I'm running Firefox 62.0 on Linux. I'm using the Light theme, but the menu bar and drop down menus have suddenly changed to dark. How do I get them back to a light background with black text? btw - when it changed, I couldn't read the menus because they were black text on black background. After trying a variety of themes, which didn't affect the menus, somehow they changed to black background with white text, so I can at least read them.

I recently found out that according to the 62.0 changelog (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/62.0/releasenotes/), "Dark theme is automatically enabled in macOS 10.14 dark mode". This was news to me, since I'm on Firefox 62.0.2, and I'd been using Mojave for a few days, and f.lux automatically switches it to Dark Mode when the sun sets, and yet I'd never once seen Firefox switch to Dark Theme when this happened. I just restarted Firefox in Safe Mode to see if that helped, but it still isn't working.
