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.

HI..

I'm running Xubuntu 18.04.4 LTS & recently switched from waterfox to Firefox 73.0.1. I have been bugged by two problems that I haven't been able to fix myself & was hoping that someone here could possibly help.

[ Problem_1. Sync has stopped working.... ] Whenever I open the synced tabs sidebar all I see is "Connect Another Device". On android I'm running Firefox Nightly version 75.0a1 & I've signed out & then re-signed in, but still nothing. The sidebar stays the same as the screenshot above. Both devices show under devices & apps & I can send tabs between both browsers. I just cannot use the synced tabs sidebar. I use sync daily & hope to find a fix soon. Here is the most recent sync log from about:sync-log. >> https://paste.mozilla.org/cXGtysBQ <<

[ Problem_2. Cannot fully use Instagram.... ] I can access instagram.com & browse through the site without any problems. However if I try to like, comment, share or follow I constantly get "Action Blocked" popping up & whatever I've just tried to do has been unsucessful. I can confirm that instagram works perfectly on both chromium & brave desktop browsers & also the official android app.

I have attached two screenshots relating to both my problems & can confirm that uninstalling & reinstalling firefox did nothing. Many thanks in advanced for replying & helping me :)

Hello,

This website (and this website alone) refuses to load correctly for me https://www.mql5.com/ Images do not load and formatting is "strange"

others users are not having this problem

I have switched tracking protection on/off....sometimes it helps when on, sometimes when off; there is no clear pattern

I have tried the suggestions at these pages https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/some-pages-or-page-elements-fail-load-after-updating

I use windows 10 with the latest firefox, plus I have real-time malwarebytes

Do you have a solution?

Thank you.

Hi, I have a problem with login in to my Firefox Sync Account, after clean installation of Windows 10. I have not recall to enable 2FA in Firefox Sync i have never used it to activate account on my PC or Android Phone. I'm using 2FA to my Google Account witch is the email for my Firefox Sync Account. But supposedlyi did.

I have tried to use keys generated by Google Authenticator (witch is only 2FA token I use, not counting Facebook App, witch I use only for FB) but no success. I tried to use this link https://accounts.firefox.com/signin and then use proper password. Then there is an information to check email for confirmation link. I get no email, noting in spam nothing nowhere. I did add the accounts@firefox.com email address to protect it from spam filters, but nothing in 4 days, waiting for a miracle. 

In an act of desperation i did change the password for the account. And i received email to confirm this chance witch a did. The email was send from accounts@firefox.com e-mail, and it arrived in my inbox immediately.

Why i do not get the confirmation email?

Hi. I use Firefox from many years. Today I was trying to inspect a my web page which looks strange in my Firefox for Android but I just can't. In my desktop I have Firefox 73.0.1 and in my Android phone I have Firefox 68.5.0. If I try to connect I get a message which tells to update Firefox from 68.5 to 71.0 (minimum supported version) but I can't find this version anywhere. I have installed Firefox Nightly for Developer in my phone but now the problem is that the version is too recent... What should I do?

In the last couple of days, Firefox has started unexpectedly exiting.

It doesn't show an error message on screen or create a Firefox crash report - it just vanishes - but it does create a WER log and entry in the Windows Application error log. It doesn't necessarily exit when it has the focus in response to user interaction - some times I'll be doing something else, and try to tab back to Firefox, and it's just gone. Mean time between crashes is about 30 minutes - not "instantly" or "on startup" but enough to be unlivable with.

I have reinstalled Firefox, checked that it is up to date (73.0.1 (64-bit)), and disabled all my plugins except 1Password (I can't really use a browser without the 1Password plugin so if it doesn't work with it on, it's the same as it not working at all)

Some WER log files for example:

https://pastebin.com/hCYpgRnJ https://pastebin.com/GczJg6xV https://pastebin.com/65xDaCrU

and here's a windows application log entry:

There are simply way too many duplicate devices that are being created.

How many is too many? 15. Fifteen duplicate devices.

I have three 4 actual devices:

  • iMac running 10.11 (El Capitan)
  • iPhone running iOS 13
  • iPad running iOS 13
  • Surface Pro running Windows 10

Why are there so many devices being created? How can I stop this?

1) Sending bookmarks becomes a guessing game because I don't know which device is current 2) I have to go in an manually delete devices ON A REGULAR BASIS, so the "Send Tab to Device" feature is actually usable 3) Does it have anything to do with the incessant code verification emails I get every time I'm somehow logged out of my Firefox account even though I was using it not half an hour earlier?

PLEASE tell me how to stop all of this. I don't have this problem with Safari or Chrome.

I had a lot of important bookmarks in Firefox without signed in Firefox account on my old PC. Before moving away from that old PC, I signed in to firefox account to it connect Firefox data with my mail and account. I even tested that in way that I signed out from my account, removed all the data from Firefox, and when I signed in again, it was all there. It was about 5 months ago. Now, on my new PC, when I signed in with same account, there is no any those bookmarks. I tried to restore bookmarks, but it offers me only two time points in past for restoring, and none of those gives me back bookmarks or any other data. I didn't use that account with Firefox until now. Please help, there was a lot of important bookmarks to me for work.

I have the following Javascript code which has been working for over 10 years and still works on Chrome, but does not work on FF 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux.

clearTimeout(timer);

   timer	= setTimeout(update, 900);

} // function onKeyDownName

/************************************************************************

function update() {

   var	form	= document.nameForm;
   if (form)
   {		// form present

var url = "/FamilyTree/getIndivNamesXml.php"; ... code to complete url by appending values of elements from form // invoke script to obtain list of names for selection list HTTP.getXML(url, // see O'Reilly Javascript gotNames, noNames);

// clear out the old selection list while we are waiting var select = form.individ; select.options.length = 0;

// put a dummy entry at the top of the selection, otherwise // selecting the first name does not call onchange var name = '[choose an individual]'; var option = new Option(name, -1, false, false); option.innerHTML = '[choose an individual]'; select.appendChild(option);

   }		// form present
   else
       alert("nominalIndex.js:update: cannot find form");

} // function update ```


When I put alerts into nameOnKeyDown and update I see that nameOnKeyDown is called but update is never called.

You can see the above code in action at https://www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=allenby,%20a&treename=&lang=en

This code has worked for over 10 years, and still is working today on Chrome, but the timer never pops on Firefox 73.0 on Ubuntu Linux 19.10.
