I have thoroughly searched and researched, but cannot get LinkedIn to load in Firefox. It will load in all other browsers from this computer (Opera, Chrome, Internet Explorer and Edge - but I prefer Firefox).

What happens: I go to https://www.linkedin.com/ and I get the LinkedIn logo (a blue box with the word 'In' in the center and a progress bar that reminds me of the old KIT car from Knight Rider.

The only exception to this is if I clear the history/cookies/cache. In this case I get the LinkedIn login screen. Once I log in I am prompted to enter the code texted to my phone, then I am back to KIT.

I have tried all of the suggestions posted on this site - from changing the MTU on my router (actually even replaced the router), changed prefetch options in about:config as well as the IPv6 settings.

I have also disabled all ForeFox extensions and plug-ins as well as switching Themes. I use AVG Internet Security, so I have disabled the firewalls, turned off my VPN (Tunnelbear) and run a deep system scan.

Through all of this the ONLY site I cannot seem to get into is LinkedIn.

Any other ideas? Thanks for your time and prompt replies.

I made a fresh, clean install of the most current Firefox 76.0.1. When launching it, it force closes after a few seconds.

There is no Crash Helper popup afterwards.

This issue does not occur with Firefox 74 and previous versions. The issue "does" occur when using the most current Firefox as a PortableApp.

I am running Windows 10 Enterprise (1809), build number 17763.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me, because as it stands, I can't update Firefox.

Why does sync not preserve separate windows with their tabs, but instead has a jumble of the tabs all together?

I had a number of separate tabs in a few different windows (search subjects) and the machine I was working on would not boot any longer. To get this research back, I am using Sync - but none of the original windows was preserved. Instead there is just a long list of all of the tabs I had open across all the windows I had open. Why does Sync not preserve the separate windows? With well over a hundred tabs open, this makes recovering/accessing this information very tedious - as all the tabs have to be opened individually, and then sorted into separate windows again, to be bookmarked in their search subject categories/windows! Was this just an oversight, or is it technically not possible to preserve separate windows in Sync?

If it is technically not possible to preserver multiple windows of tabs in Sync, it would be much more workable if it were possible to mark these tabs in Sync to re-open them, rather than have to open them individually or all of the tabs at once from that other machine. Thanks!

Hello,

I've been using Firefox just fine for years without any issues, however recently I ran firefox as Admin mode to test something and once started I noticed that a very old extension was resinatalled and shortly after Firefox crashed... When I started Firefox again everything seemed normal, till I opened Gmail and it asked me to login..so I started to open few more websites where my sessions is saved, and they all required me to login, that's when I knew that something wrong with the cookies happened, however history/bookmarks etc seems to be there

I did open "cookies.sqlite" with a sqlite browser software and it only returned 35 lines even though the file size is 2mb

Is there anyway I can recover the cookies? this is really important to me

Crash ID: bp-f056dca8-a031-4013-a087-a4cd00200404

Thanks!

In 74.0.1, when I clicked into the address bar, the previous contents were completely selected by a black background and I could type a new URL or search. In 75.0, I am not able to click into the address bar. I am shown a dropdown list of suggestions but cannot edit or type over the previous address. How can I restore the 74.0.1 behavior?

No issues in Safari 13.1 on High Sierra. The screenshot taken in Mavericks (FF 74.0.1) as Safari 9 doesn't load the site at all. Disabled all extensions, cleared cookies and cache - no dice.

Whenever my computer is restarted and firefox opens and restores my previous tabs, it always loads another new tab with some youtube channel. I'm sure its not the youtube channel doing it, but it is very annoying. Ive even reset my entire history of firefox, but its still happening, despite it not being bookmarked.

I reinstalled Windows today along with Firefox as it has been my main browser for years. Today Firefox was working fine when I installed it this morning and it started getting progressively worse thru the day.

First when I opened up reddit.com the tab would crash right away giving me the option to restore. After a while I gave up and decided to go to other websites which were fine.

Then I decided to go to Twitch.tv and the browser just crashed outright when I moved the window to the second monitor. I then reopened the Firefox again and tried it again with the same result.

I've switched over to a different browser as I've tried refreshing my copy firefox to no avail. Reinstalling does not do anything either. I'm all out of ideas. My crash reports are as follows: bp-5366dec0-7122-488e-966b-378fc0200407 bp-e071bfe0-628a-4111-a9d8-3c26a0200407
