Hello everyone, Apologies if this is a simple matter or no matter at all, but to me it is an issue. Since some time now I feel that my Firefox is kinda slower. Some websites used to open in a splitsecond, now they take a little time. When you write a text like this, sfter the last letter you see a blinking line (?). Well, I see it always somewhere on my screen. There is always somwhere I need to klick and that blinking thing is always somwhere on the screen. How can I get rid of that thing? Not a big issue but very irritating.

But my biggest biff is with recaptcha that just went mental few months ago. Normally, say if I use chrome (which I dont like), I will get an option, klick 3 pics that switch rapidly, try again and it is solved. Very fast. Now in Firefox, i click a pic, it takes forever to switch, I get like 6 tries which are ALWAYS wrong, then I get another attempt, and another, and another. No matter what I click it takes forever to change and it is always wrong. It is just killing me.

Have somethong been done in recent updates in settings? Have I changed something in settings? Can I change something to make it work again? It worked great few months ago!

I tried the usual cache and cookies cleaning. Not helping. I use genuine premium versions of Kaspersky and Malwarebytes. I also use glary utilities for cleaning up.

I am so sorry to bother you all with what perhaps is not an issue at all. But I would be very thankfull to you all who know how and can me help resplve these "issues". Big kudos and thanx! Jasse

It appears that my account was reset and I was locked out. I successfully reset my password but I cannot restore or recover my other information such as data, bookmarks, customization, preferences, etc. It also appears that my desktop account no longer recognizes my android device. Unable to sync with phone and QR Code recovery was unsuccessful.

Can you please help me restore my desktop/android account to where it was on Jan 3 2021?

When I log into certain pages, Firefox will say it has finished loading but functions like search bars or drop down menus do not come up, rendering the pages useless. Other times I go to log into an account but it only loads a blank white page. I have tried clearing caches and cookies already, as well as several other solutions posted on various asks and message boards. My Internet connection is fine and the pages load perfectly on other browsers.

everyday firefox is no longer compatible with more and more government, bank and corporate web sites

Is firefox deliberately making sure it is no longer compatible with web sites ? every time it is updated i can add web sites to the list of no longer compatible web sites. and they are not changing, so the issue is with firefox. I see in the about us, Firefox is braging about their collaboration with Ford Foundation, omidyar network, color of change and consumers international and ford foundation even referred to it as a match made in heaven. How ever how can screwing up every day of the week be a good thing or heaven ? How is it these ' people ' think their of any help at all ? The issue with the usps OIC portal issues was never fixed, then it was several banks and credit card company's, now it is home depot corporate log in [ not homedepot.com ] also the apple icloud issue, with some hidden page command that causes the courser to no longer work when viewing pictures. So I am wondering how a bunch of deliberate screw ups can brag about how their making it ' better' by making the web browser no longer compatible with high security web sites then trying to say the issue is with them is not good, helpful, or even a step forwards.

So now the only work around is fire fox has to be abandoned as a joke junk web browser and all of those web sites can only be accessed by google chrome.

I'm not sure if it is firefoxs new so called clown high security, how ever forcing users to go to a different web browser is not more security , it is a deliberate screw up, like making a car that breaks down when you drive it out of your driveway and calling it safer as it can not get into a accident if you can not drive it.

and just so that we are crystal clear for years I have run computers on line with NO anti virus or malware protection, yet my computer does not get infected, but how can that be ? the answer is simple, people are morons that do stupid things that cause their computers to be infected, if your IQ was higher then a bug you would not have all of the issues your all having. So what do you do ? you change the browser thinking it is going to protect you from your selfs, when the problem is not with the browser its with you the users.

So how are all of your continuous changes that cause the web browser to no longer function properly a help at all ?

I have Firefox set to restore tabs from the previous session. That works great ... until I set Edge as the default browser in order to do some troubleshooting. Then I set FF back to the default browser, started FF, and the tabs weren't there from the previous session. There was only one tab, the which was the Homepage. Is there some way that I can restore all of those tabs when I start FF?

Yes, i recall the last time i was asking for help with this issue i was told to post it as a bug somewhere. I went to "Feedback" thinking that was logical, but apparently Mozilla is reworking Feedback so that does not exist, and as i am not a software developer, i suspect a technical bug report is over my head anyway.

I don't want to go to Edge, but it would seem Mozilla wants me to. This issue has persisted ever since release 79. I would think that the programmer(s) could "simply" look at what changed from 78 to 79 and revert, but apparently not.

I, once again, have to uninstall the latest release (i installed it, allowing an "upgrade", thinking that by now someone there would have fixed that which at least to me is a critical routine), and reinstall Version 78.0, since that one isn't f'd up. Maybe it is all the enhanced "security" that is now interfering with normal processes, i don't know. That also means I have to get used to the new browser and hopefully finding a reliable password manager to which i can import pages of entries from Kee.

Yes, i know i will get a share of hate mail for criticizing FF at this point. Just consider how infuriating it is after using it since beta 0.3 and having made donations, having what i see as a critical issue ignored, and worse, forcing me to soon change to Edge if no one fixes it. As much as i hate using the Microsoft browser, at least it does not force the Microsoft "Save" dialog box to collapse when trying to print to a pdf, and i am rather disgusted that no one from FF has reached out to try to fix this issue.

And yes, i did try it in safe mode (run firefox.exe /safe) and "Restart with Addons disabled" from the menu|Help, neither of which were successful.

If any of you know how to get this note to someone competent at FF, please do so and let me know to hold off on switching; i dread having to do that, but printing to pdf is mission critical in the conduct of my business.

I have successfully reset my password for my Firefox account. However, I am continually pestered by the pop-up window asking for my password, and this pop-up window will not accept my new password. I know the new password works because it logs me into my Firefox account. Ideally I would like to disable this window, as I am on a secure computer, but I can't seem to do that while it refuses to accept my new account password. Please help!

It display everything ok, but when I want to download any image from facebook it saves to disk BUT THE IMAGE WONT open, not in win explorer not even in photoshop.

This is extremely weird because this problem only happens on FB, in every other social media or webpage I can download images as I please and everything runs ok, but in FB DONT!! This problem start in late november 2020, until now. I've tried every single advice you offer in the help menu whit no success, I even reset windows and still happen.

I'm thinking that Facebook have introduce some sort of new code that protect images from been downloaded. Do you guys know why FB IMAGES DOWNLOAD AS CORRUPT FILES  ?

Apple logins universally do not work in Firefox. I am stuck with a spinning wheel.

This problem is persistent across Windows 10 desktop and multiple Linux distributions (Kubuntu, POP OS, Debian).

I have tried the following:

  • Clear cache
  • Clear history
  • Enable exception
  • Run in safe mode
  • Disable all addons

None of these items work.

I've always used Firefox's "set as desktop background" to change my desktop picture on Linux Mint. Recently (after update to Mint 20?), it hasn't been working. I'm not sure it was when I updated to Mint 20, it may also have quit working after I used Pix to set the desktop background?

When I select "set as desktop background" in Firefox, nothing happens. There is no error message. I can still change the background using Pix, but that requires saving the picture from Firefox, opening it in Pix, and then setting it to the desktop. It would be nice if I could do it directly from FF again.
