Hello. I am having the same issue as another user, but they flagged their question as solved so I'm making a new one just in case. I can't login properly to YouTube, only in Firefox, even after clearing cache and cookies and disabling add-ons/running safe mode. I can login to my Google account, view my playlists and recommended videos (although the main page with recommendations only shows 5 lines of videos and when scrolling further is not loading). I can't make any edits,

for example add videos to the "Watch Later" playlist, that require a login. When I click login, Google shows the "405 error "The request method GET is inappropriate for the URL /youtubei/v1/browse/edit_playlist." That’s all we know." or with other URL, depending on the action taken. What can I do? Thank you.

FF 80.0.1 (64) ADP Privacy Badger

This is the first time that I noticed I am no longer using the 32 bit version. Have the terrible kinks been worked on/fixed?

The strangest thing. Could not login to pay my bill at electric company. NO visible place to login. Went to site using IE and although slow, I could login and pay. Disabled ABP and PB.

What’s up?

Thank you.

Hi,

I recently had to perform a clean start on my laptop. When I removed Firefox, it created a folder "old firefox data" with my logins, bookmarks, etc. When I downloaded and reinstalled firefox fresh, I followed the instructions to add the files in the "old firefox data" folder to the new profile folder and restarted firefox, however nonthing changed. My bookmarks were no where to be found nor was anything else from my previous firefox data. Looking for help with this problem.

I've been using U block origin for quite a while and have been pleased with it's performance until today. For some reason it's not blocking an ad that it previously blocked in AOL in box screen. I tried to add the element but it didn't work, although, I'm not sure if I was doing it correctly. I was able to block the ad content but not the blank ad space bar. See attached screen shot.I would appreciate it if someone would would review the procedure to block an ad. Thanks

I'm on my laptop w/Win 10. I keep getting a popup with "Firefox can't update to the latest version," but if I select "Download Firefox" I get a page about FF for Android (I already have FF for Android 80.1.2.) I manually downloaded and updated FF to 80.0.1. Going to Help>About, FF tells me "Firefox is up to date." But I still get the FF can't update popup. I don't want to turn off the notification in case there really is a problem (actually, I don't know that there isn't a problem, but if there is, there's nothing I know that I can do about it).

A folder in Bookmarks disappeared AGAIN! This is ridiculous. Every now and then Firefox loses a Bookmark folder. To make matters worse, I can waste a lot of time trying to find it and get no where. I have better things to do than trying to find lost Bookmark folders! How can I easily find the very important Bookmark folder quickly? Undo does not help.

When I click Bookmarks in the menu bar, and let up on Bookmark this page, nothing happens. When I check my bookmarks nothing has been added. I am used to a popup window that allows me to choose which folder to put the new bookmark in. It no longer appears. I tried reinstalling Firefox and this did not help. What do I do to restore Bookmarking capability?

Captcha Doesn't show up. I can't authenticate in sites and entire sites don't show up.

I'm an author/writer of cozy mystery/suspense/crime/thrillers and adventure short stories. I do a LOT of research and participate in online forums for background for my books and to build my brand. I have been using Mozilla Firefox for almost 20 years and I love it. But I may be forced to change because of the two serious problems I'm having. Explanations below:

  1. 1. There are certain regular sites I go to that require me to choose images to verify I'm not a robot or click on "I'm not a Robot" in reCaptcha. I can't because those images and/or the box for eCaptcha don't show up. They're just not there. I have to sign out and sign into Microsoft Edge which I absolutely hate. If I have to change, it will probably be Google Chrome.
  1. 2. Also, many of the sites I use regularly don't show up anymore. All I can see is text down the left side. None of the images are there and I can't tell where to click to go to different pages.

This has all been going on for months. I had hoped your updates would fix this, but they haven't. I don't want to change browsers, but I may have to because I MUST be able to verify my identity and be able to see some important sites I use regularly to post comments, etc.

I hope you can help me. I'm 85 and have absolutely no technological computer knowledge so please don't send me a lot codes because I would have no idea what to do with them. I pray this can be fixed.

I have a Dell PC and am using Windows 7, 32-bit.

Thank you, Gail S. Kibby White.

Hello,

I have been running Firefox for a good long while, but as of little over a month ago it started crashing randomly on my Windows machine (MacOS seems perfectly stable). The crashes occur anywhere between few seconds after starting and hour+ after starting. They don't appear to be linked to any specific activity, and also occur while I'm not actively using the browser, or even using the computer.

I've gone through every "guide" I can find, disabling/removing add-ons, extensions, resetting configuration, deleting stuff incl whole profile folder, disabling hardware acceleration, using Default theme etc. Currently using it with add-ons disabled, and everything reset, but logged in as me and sync'ing Bookmarks, Tabs and Logins.

Only thing that seems to work is to run it in Safe Mode, but mimicking Safe Mode by disabling everything doesn't result in the same stability.

Windows is the latest build, drivers are the latest versions, Firefox is the latest version, currently 80.0.1 64-bit.

Hope someone might have a suggestion as to what to do,

Cheers, NC.
