I have moved my bookmarks form an iMac to a new Windows 10 PC. Moving them was not a problem. But they have lost their favicons and now all have a grey globe as the only symbol. Very annoying. I had hoped that I could bring back the favicons one by one by using each bookmark. But that doesn't change anything.

On several web sites (such as Google - but also on Mozilla Release Notes) right-clicking on a URL link displays an incorrect drop-down menu. See attached screenshot with Mozilla URL visible. This issue makes it impossible to e.g. open a link in a new Tab.

Same issue seen on Mac and Windows 10 platforms (Firefox 73.0.1)

Hi, on both my computers Facebook won't load in Firefox. It works fine with my wife's account in other browsers. It isn't the account as it still works from my phone. No matter how I go to FB, it will say at the bottom "...transferring data from", but then it will stop and screen just goes white. Sometimes it says, "Something went wrong". I have tried clearing all the date in Firefox and using CCleaner. I have tried starting in safe mode. I have tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling. Nothing works, but ever other page works just fine on both computers. Anything you have to suggest would be greatly appreciate it. It is, by far, my favorite browser and I hate to have to use another one just for FB. Thanks

This HP Elitebook 840 G3 running Windows 10 v 1903 64-bit. Have to be careful re-installing as FF wants to make my extensions in GERMAN! Are OK now (see attachment). Have test-removed AdGuard, NO difference, so added it back.

NOTE: screenshot is long out-of-date: AdNauseum removed long before this issue started

In 73.0.1 , opening a new link opens a new window, rather than just a new tab. 72.0.2 did not do this.

For example, I have my home weather page open and I want to open a different weather page in a new tab, but the same Firefox window. Using 72.0.2 this worked, as that is the setting I made in Options/General/Tabs. I have the setting correct, but 73.0.1 ignores it and opens a new Firefox window. I have done this download of 73.0.1 twice in the last ten days. Same result. Would not update normally, by the waay. Had to download a fresh install.

I have my Firefox privacy setting set as "Strict", yet Firefox has detected 0 trackers over the past week... I use Google and Ublock origin detects more stuff..

Also, speaking of uBlock Origin (add=ons), I now have got an update for it and seen a dalog from Firefox requesting access to th e iner workings..

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/permission-request-messages-firefox-extensions?as=u&utm_source=inproduct

Why would this be when uBlock Origin doesn't need to share host-name/IP address or anything previously not done to privide full functionality...

Ideally, isn't this kind of "anti" privacy ? Some add-on that always worked flawless and only NOW after an update,needs access to/ more control to continue what is always did before without?

That raises concern to me from a privacy standpoint..... I'm just wondering though If i should allow it stay with older version...

To me, the way privacy is generally handed would be addon developers get you 'hooked', and to give you calm they tell you the 'added" borderlne privacy they must now have access to, is "required"to usually give you more features or more alerts (just to make anyone feel safer as an add-on protecting you more, when in fact its slowly doing exactly the opposite.. This way by edging more and more overtime, users will by blind to how much access "privacy"add-ons even get.)

My privacy is mine..... so any short-falls like more access when it previously worked ok is an instant 'red flag' to me... and would be with anything.

Any suggestions? I'm sure other people here also in the same boat with uBlock Origion update, and privacy focused, so what did you do?

I did have to reset my password (I could not remember password, hence why i sync passwords). I did logout of the firefox account before initiating a clean install of Windows. It may not make any difference though. :(

I saw how resetting password for sync account can delete info on servers? I do have sync on my android phone, where passwords and logins are still there. Is there a way to sync my android to my computer? I have tons of logins and passwords, i would hate to have to start over. :(


Thanks so much

I'm using Firefox version 73.0.1 (64-bit) (which is currently the latest) on a Mac. Whenever I try to access Google Drive Starred or Recent via bookmarks, I get that error message. This used to work until a few days ago, so I assume some update broke it. I tried to refresh Firefox and delete the cookies, but that didn't work. Private windows don't work either. Other browsers like Safari work great.

For some time now the Firefox addons page looks like a broken CSS. Last night it fixed itself for about 5 minutes and then went back to broken state again. I can't find an easy way to report this to Mozilla, so I'm hoping someone of their web developers would be reading this forum. There's a screenshot of what the addons page looks like in 99.99% of the time. I tried everything I could think of, including deleting history, browser cache, resetting to a clean profile, etc. - nothing changed it back to the normal view. I even tried as described at the end of this article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently to click "View" menu but it already is set to "Basic view", so that didn't help either. Installing an addon works fine, it's just that the website appears as a broken CSS. The browser version is Firefox 73.0.1 64-bit.

Edit: only the addons page appears as a broken CSS, all other pages of the domain mozilla.org appear to be fine.

Firefox will not start. After double-clicking the icon, the cursor indicates the system is busy, but no icon appears on the taskbar and no window opens on screen. Task Manager shows a Firefox process running (not running before trying to start Firefox). With UAC activated, UAC window opens and asks whether to allow Firefox to make changes to the computer. After choosing Yes, the UAC window keeps opening and asking, over and over. Have reinstalled Firefox. Have tried to start Firefox in Safe Mode (both Shift>double-click and Run command). Have tried to start Profile Manager from Run command (firefox.exe -P and "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P). Neither Firefox nor Profile Manager will open. Found a file in the Profiles folder called Parent.Lock and deleted it, with no apparent effect. Would like to know what might get Firefox to work.

Catalina (10.15.3) and Firefox (73.0.1) aren't working together. As soon as I stop actively using Firefox it crashes. If I try to reopen it, I get a message that I can't reopen it because there is a copy in use already. If I try to force quit Firefox it is not in the force quit menu. If I look in Activity Monitor Firefox is not present there either. Thank you.

Bookmarks on toolbar are rearranging themselves every few seconds. I tried removing old unused bookmarks, creating and (re)arranging into folders and replacing the bookmarks I use often in their old familiar places. It took a couple hours to do that. It appeared to have worked as they were staying put. I closed the browser to do some other tasks and when I reopened the browser again everything was back to its chaotic state as if I hadn't touched it. This started on its own a few days ago and I need it to stop immediately as its driving me nuts not being able to quickly find the ones i need and use regularly. Please help!

I use a master password for my Firefox account. My desktop Firefox account only required me to enter my master password once and I have never, in the year or more since, had to enter it again. However on my laptop, I am constantly nagged to enter the master password each and ever time I open Firefox. And if I don't enter it and press cancel, it will eventually nag me a few seconds to a a few minutes later.

I've searched support and none of the suggestions have resolved the issue. I don't use AVG or Eset Internet Security. I followed the steps in the guide anyway but did not resolve the issue.

Thank you for your consideration.

My laptop: Microsoft Surface 6 i7-8650U, 8Gb RAM Windows 10 Home 64-bit version 1903 Firefox version 73.0.1

I am not sure what I may have done, or if it is associated with the upgrade... Any assistance would be greatly appreciated,
