Overnight it seems that Firefox is no longer reading my old saved logins and passwords. I have checked to see that the logins.json and key4.db files are present, but the new Lockwise page shows nothing. When I look at the about:protections page, it shows that I still have 400+ logins and passwords protected. I tried to make a new profile and import backup data and Firefox still does not see the saved logins and passwords in the new profile. Any ideas on what is causing this behavior? I have so many accounts, and would like to get this functionality working again.

Are chrome URLs: chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, et al, broken in Firefox 73

I have bookmarked the 'Library' using the chrome URL: chrome://browser/content/places/places.xul, for the purpose of opening the library in a new tab. This, and other chrome urls such as: chrome://browser/content/bookmarks/bookmarksManager.xul, no longer work, apparently since Firefox updated to 73 or 73.0.1.

Now when clicking the bookmark, I get the error: File Not Found. Firefox can’t find the file at jar:file:///C:/Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/browser/omni.ja!/chrome/browser/content/browser/bookmarks/bookmarksManager.xul.

The omni file in the Programs folder now is: omni.ja, not omni.jar.

Was the omni file made obsolete or changed? Will this be addressed in the next update?

How do I workaround this to maintain my bookmark for the library and other bookmarks using chrome urls as referenced at: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Chrome_URLs?

After the latest Firefox update, several websites I use that launch applications installed on my PC are no longer working. Zoom meetings is one of them, Teamviewer, and Solarwinds Take Control, OneDrive sync - anything really. I've tried uninstalling Firefox, removing all user data, and reinstalling but it is the same. Other browsers such as Chrome and the new Edge are working fine as expected.

Currently, whatever link(s) you set as your Homepage is also the same link(s) that appears when you open a New Window. The way that New Window is inherently clumped together with the Homepage seems to make it impossible to separate the two in the Options settings.

What is the logic behind this? Why have a separate setting for New Tab, but not New Window? I like having Firefox open up multiple tabs as my homepage when I first boot up Firefox, but if I want to open up a new window just for screen management space with Ctrl+N, I really am not interested in my homepages being re-instantiated, as I already have them open on my first window.

I really want my Homepages to remain a custom mix of tabs with any New Tab and New Window opening up to a Firefox's default new tab page. Is that not possible? I can't have a custom Homepage without also having a custom New Window configuration? :(

It just seems like an arbitrary distinction. What can I do to make this magical world of separate Homepage and New Window settings happen?

Sincerely, A Fan

I had this issue about a month ago, and looked into responses given to similar crashes. I tried disabling Hardware Acceleration, reinstalled Firefox, removed all add-ons and themes, then did a clean reinstall without any of my old user information, and checked my RAM for issues to no avail. I still had crashes in between each attempted fix. I updated Windows Defender and ran virus scans but nothing was wrong. None of the minor changes seemed to make a difference, but the crashes stopped so perhaps it was a culmination of everything, or I just got lucky.

Well last night the issues started again. I checked my OS installation for issues this time, and reinstalled Firefox (and immediately turned off hardware acceleration), but it hasn't helped. I don't want to erase my Firefox Profile and everything else again, so hopefully someone can tell me the 1 thing I need to do to prevent this from happening. I made sure to submit all the crash reports, but most of the ones from the past 24 hours appear to be missing now, so I'll include the IDs from the last three reports before it stopped previously, as well as the first three I ever sent, since I assume this is the same error.

Most recent 3 in list:

If it helps, I'm running the latest version of Firefox with Windows 10 Pro on a Dell Optiplex 9020. It's an Intel icore i5-4590 3.3GHz CPU, and the GPU is Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 Zotac Mini 6G.

(edited to add line breaks since I noticed it was clumped together)

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.

I have been using Startpage as my default search engine for some time now. But in the past couple of weeks it takes very long to display results or even appears to hang. When this happens, the Startpage FF add-on switches to the generic Startpage format. I have raised this issue with Startpage, but they have no knowledge of such a problem. The issue seems to come and go. No malware on my Win 10 machine. I have also refresheded FF. Other search engines do not behave this way. Any ideas?

Firefox is set to be in permanent private browsing mode: History is set to "Never Remember History" and all "Cookies and Site Data" is set to be cleared each time Firefox is closed. Nevertheless, my habit for years has been to manually clear these options at the end of each session and Firefox always reported that "Your stored cookies, site data, and cache are currently using 0 MB of disk space" afterward. Beginning a few months ago after a Firefox upgrade, 2.1MB of Cached Web Content remained after my attempts to manually clear the data. With the latest upgrade to 73.0.1, this has risen to 2.6MB of persistent data. Why? And, how can I clear it?

An error occurred during a connection to doc-0g-70-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

It's on my desktop and dated 14 June 2019. I've never paid it any mind, but I'd like to resolve the matter. Do I or do I not need it? I use Firefox EXCLUSIVELY linked with StartPage. I don't think a day has gone by that I have not used Firefox for HOURS every day since the creation of the file folder. A screenshot is too large to attach. The folder contains 651 files, 125 folders, 118MB, and is located on C:\Users\Hochstapler\Desktop. I don't know what's in it or how to find out what's in it. I'd appreciate some sound advice. I'll answer questions as quickly as possible. Thanks.
