Since the update to version 66, my themes won't stay enabled, no matter which one I choose. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the themes, (restarting firefox in between), redownloading and installing firefox itself...all to no avail. It reverts to the default theme when it finishes loading, no matter what I do. I can re-enable it manually...and, here's the odd part, it shows while firefox is loading! Anytime firefox is started, this happens, and it doesn't seem to matter what them I select. When I close firefox, it disables itself.

Logging in works without problems in Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Opera. For Firefox (66.0), I get:

"We were unable to find an account with that email address. Please try again."

Walmart Canada: https://www.walmart.ca/sign-in

Tried:

1. Content Blocking turned on or OFF COMPLETELY (Off: Custom, then both options unchecked).

2. Unable to add the website to Content Blocking Exceptions, because the choice is never given to do so when clicking on the Site Information icon, and the "Manage Exceptions" for Content Blocking does not allow additions. These are both true also with a new Firefox Profile. I am NOT using Private Browsing.

3. Restarted Firefox with Add-ons Disabled.

4. Added https://www.walmart.ca/ to Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data, to Allow.

5. Cleared "Cookies and Site Data", plus "Cached Web Content".

6. Dispite there being no notifications in Bitdefender Antivirus Plus, I completely disabled it and it's Web Protection.

7. Created new Firefox Profile. Success ... But only once! As soon as I close Firefox and open it again (with the same new Profile and same settings), I cannot log in again.

8. Doing items 1-6 with the new Firefox Profile accomplishes nothing. Cannot log in after the first time with a new Firefox Profile.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that this started just recently during the past 2 weeks. Previously I was able to login and use the Walmart Canada website with no problem. Walmart's response to the issue is that I should use Google Chrome.

I've used Firefox for over 10+ years and never had a problem, now nothing but problems. I had to reinstall Firefox and I lost all my bookmarks, I want them back. The bookmark tool bar doesn't work, can't load and keep my yahoo.com showing. I play a game on Facebook, can't play, it freezes up and the only way to get out of it is cntrl/alt/delete. Are there any solutions? I've tried everything that has been on the Firefox website and nothing has worked.

Hi. I'll try to keep this brief.

After reverting a macOS defaults command back to standard ( defaults write -g NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance -bool No ) so that I can use the normal Mojave dark mode instead of the pre-Mojave dark mode, Firefox started displaying blank, light mode styled, context menus.

I tried all the recommended troubleshooting steps and eventually deleted all traces of Firefox, including Application Support and org.mozilla preference files. I then re-installed Firefox via a fresh download. However, the entire application is unusable, as if the OS is just not rendering the application properly.

I've uploaded a short video to demonstrate: https://imgur.com/a/DAcbL5k

Firefox works normally in a new user account I created just to test it so there is something user space level going on but I'd like to know what it could be and maybe a Moz developer would find it useful to know as well.

I have been using Firefox Quantum 66.0.2 (64 bit) with Kaspersky for years but today Firefox kept having problems so I uninstalled and then re-installed it. Now the KIS URL Advisors show up when I do a Google search using Firefox, but it does not show up at the top of Firefox, where the Ad Blocker still does

Before I uninstalled Firefox today, Kaspersky WAS showing as an enabled add-on, but now is not on the Firefox list of allowed add-ons. I tried adding Kaspersky Protection directly from the download file, and then again from a NEWLY downloaded file, but both times Firefox wrote that the file was "corrupted". BOTH new and old?

Even System Restore to several earlier dates now won't show Kaspersky Protection in Firefox!

But it is still in Chrome, which is only used as an emergency backup, as I use Firefox as my browser!

Please help ....


attachements:

1. KIS URL Advisor icon used to be to the right of the History clock icon in Firefox (up till a few hours ago!)

2. KIS URL Advisor icon is STILL working in Chrome!

3. KIS URL Advisor icon is working and showing in Firefox Google search!

When I scroll down my page, I notice my address bar disappears to the very top and I can't pick any options until I scroll back to the top. I've never had it do this before - how do I change the settings? Attaching a picture of the bar that keeps disappearing. Well, I tried twice to upload the picture but that hangs up too.

I continually backup my bookmarks since they have been lost far too many times. Mostly FF reverts to an older version - with no clear indication which one that will be. Since 12 March I have bookmarked several times but the system reverted to 12 March every time an update or similar occured. Checking the bookmarksbackup and bookmarks folders I find the newer sets of bookmarks have never been stored. So when I try to backup and check the folder the backup should be in (tried a variety of options just to see what happens) the file has NOT been written. I do not want to lose the current set and will therefore not force a new import by deleting locals.sqlite. So I need a fix to be able to store the bookmarks I have now. HTML does not work either, by the way.

I can be actively browsing or be afk, it doesn't matter it seems, but sometimes tab would just crash. Can be active tab or some other, I'm kinda lost. I suspect it's hardware acceleration related, but I would like to fix the issue rather than turn it off.

Some reports:

bp-682cc861-90c0-4186-a369-f30a80190325

I would love to find a reason and a fix for that. Using latest nvidia drivers and latest firefox.

Hello. I've been struggling to figure out how to get the address bar and tabs to hide when in fullscreen mode on my Mac. At first, I thought this was just the default setting, but after browsing other Community posts and discussions on Reddit and such, I began to suspect those are supposed to hide by default, but are not in my case.

Please see the photo attached for what I mean—the tabs and address bar never go away, if they are supposed to, regardless of whether I have a new tab or a webpage open.

I tried Firefox with all my add-ons turned off, because some posts suggested they can prevent auto-hiding. I have looked for CSS solutions and extensions which could help, but I am utterly frustrated. Please help!

Thanks in advance.

Every time I start firefox it nags me to "Set up sync" and it's driving me nuts. I only surf the net on my PC. I'm an old guy and my arthritic fingers won't allow me to use small devices to surf the net. I have no other devices to sync to. And I NEVER WILL have other devices to sync to. I am a long term firefox user, and don't want to use any other browser - but this is driving me nuts.

BTW, I get that you want to remind me about software updates, and I am fine with this. They are important - but not this sync business.

I like to change the router codes of my newly installed Speed Port from the German Telekom company at the site: "http://speedport.ip" Unfortunately the certificate of the product is not trusted by Firefox with the following error message: MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_SELF_SIGNED_CERT could I risk to ignore it?

Just after installing Firefox Quantum v66.0.2 (64 bit), I am now seeing tens of items being blocked by Ghostery, NoScript and UBlock, items I have not seen being blocked in the past. Is this new version of Firefox subject to being immediately hijacked as soon as it is updated? Is there now something different in Firefox's security for this new version? I have checked ALL of my Firefox settings and all settings are set just as I want them to be set, with this exception: I seem to have many more certificates than I really need and many of them appear to be from countries other than the US. Would I encounter problems if I just deleted all the current certificates in order to update the required certificates? Thank you, Rusty
