I had a similar problem last year when an auto update came through. After several suggestions didn't help I opted to reinstall a previous version and upgrade that. Now it's back again with the v94 update.

I've disabled ALL extensions. No help. Themes don't seem to make a difference. However, when I went to about:config and entered "toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets" to make it true to allow chrome.css files to work it began immediately. Reset it to false and "X"s are back. Set config to TRUE and it screws up the "X"s. Again, all this is with all extensions off.

I hate the transparency of the tabs and menu bars so I need to set .css files. How else can I do it?

I want searches to stay in a search engines home page and not go automatically into address box. When I search for anything by writing in the search box on the Google home page search or even Duck Duck Go, the inserted text goes immediately into the address bar. I have tried FF in Safe Mode, I have no studies going, using version of FF 94.0.2 and only have 5 extensions (Last Pass, Bitdefender, BreezeClick, Adobe Acrobat and Malwarebytes.) Thank you

I have long used the option to have a separate address and search bar ("Add search bar in toolbar" in search settings). A few months ago, I changed that to "Use the address bar for search and navigation". The search bar is gone, but when I type a query into my combined address and search bar, I only get "We're having trouble finding this site".

Notes: -) My default search engine is DuckDuckGo, but it doesn't work either when I make Google my default search engine -) I can use the "this time search with..." buttons on bottom, but that's an extra step for every search -) My profile goes way back to the beginnings of Firefox. Any hidden settings that might not have been migrated properly in the past, and that I could check in the about:config?

Hello,

I have a new Cisco Webex Desk Camera that it's not working with Firefox (Flatpak on Fedora Silverblue 35).

lsusb: Bus 006 Device 004: ID 05a6:0023 Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco Webex Desk Camera

https://mozilla.github.io/webrtc-landing/gum_test.html shows two cameras "Video Capture 4" and "Video Capture 5", none of them work, the page shows an error message: "AbortError: Starting videoinput failed".

The same website works in Chromium (also a Flatpak), which only sees "Video Capture 4 (05a6:0023)". "OBS Studio" is also able to use the camera. "Video Capture 5" is not available in Chromium and freezes the image in OBS Studio. I believe Video Capture 5 is the IR camera that is used in Windows Hello.

Would you be able to help me to get this camera supported, please?

I am looking for suggestions/work flows for migrating existing Mac's from the standard firefox release to the ESR version. I am looking to manage these all under 1 update cycle. A couple of current problems:

  1. On a system with the standard version already installed, I can't find a way to upgrade to the ESR version without uninstalling first.
  2. Once I would do an uninstall and then an install of the new version, I am prompted that I have launched an older version of Firefox and that I must create a new profile. How can I do this without loosing all users bookmarks, extensions, etc?

Thanks!

I am absolutely devastated to find that my saved logins and passwords have all vanished from my account. I just uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox because the sync on my open tabs didn't seem to be working. But now ALL of my passwords are gone and I don't have them anywhere else because I thought I could rely on Firefox.

I'm logged in to my Firefox account but they are all gone.

How can I get them back? Please keep it simple if possible, I have no background in IT.

Thanks so much - feeling a bit desperate here and hoping there's some way to recover them all.

When I try to post a pic on Marketplace in Firefox I select the .JPG picture and upload it. The picture I want to post appears fine before I upload it. Once I upload it to Facebook, it just appears as a solid colour. I have attached a couple pics, one is of the pic I want to upload and the other is the pic after it is uploaded. I should state that if I use Chrome or Edge, it works fine. And if I try to post a pic to my timeline it works fine. I just have this problem when using FireFox and trying to post to MarketPlace I know, well just use Chrome or Edge, I DON'T WANT TO :-) I want to use my FireFox. Ian

Firefox becoming troublesome with purchases and logins

Used to be my go-to browser; now I just use it to download stuff.

I often can't make online purchases whenever PayPal is involved; a pop-up window "doesn't," or a click-button is missing (like "complete purchase") or some such. I've had to fire up Chrome to make a purchase easily half a dozen times in the past several months to make a purchase.

NOW, it won't let me log in to my TracFone accounts, of which I have two. I use a password manager because it's impossible to keep track of 'em all. It fills in the fields correctly (I triple-verified this with my master spreadsheet of passwords), and I get an "invalid username or password" message every time, for either account. I can log in just fine with Chrome, same password manager.

I'm sure there's a fix, like flush the cache and delete all cookies and such, but really... I never used to have do to any of that, Firefox was rock solid and never gave me any grief, and then after some update was installed (can't say when), this stuff started up. It's starting to act like Windows, where I spend as much time wrestling with the OS as I do trying to use it (100% disk usage and other nonsense).

Am I the only one experiencing this kind of issue? Is there a bug-fix for any of it? If not, I'd like to submit one (two, if the paypal thing and the login thing have to be treated as separate problems).

Thanks for reading this.

"It means that the version of Mozilla Firefox you're using on your computer is no longer supported. Follow these steps to fix the problem."

I did update and restarted the browser and later my computer, the same message is appearing.

When I open Web Developer Tools -> Inspector -> Eyedropper the eyedropper just shows a circle but does not copy or display the colors as you hover over them. When you click it just copies #000000 to the clipboard.

The only way I can use the Eyedropper is by going to: Tools -> Browser Tools -> Eyedropper.

My current Firefox version is 94.0.2 and I noticed this issue within the last minor/major update. I also noticed that the issue heavily depends on the website you are trying to get colors from. Some websites work fine while others it does not work.

When I try it on Hacker News (https://news.ycombinator.com/) it does not work for me.

Opening up firefox last week am a message saying something was wrong/couldn't proceed (I don't remember the exact text). I tried to delete the message, but it just came back every time blocking opening firefox. I tried to restart it, but the same blocking message reappeared. I then uninstalled it and all my files disappeared, of course. I've today reinstalled it, but no history, etc.. How can I get my original web files back? Do you have a 30 day grace period where any file can be restored like the one Microsoft has? Can I get my webfiles back at all? Please help. tmr W10 64bit

Using Firefox 94.0.2 and I randomly can't load web pages. It will work fine for a while but eventually I get stuck loading the page. Restarting the browser seems to solve it for a while. This only happens with my Firefox browser on my organization's PC running Windows 10. The browser works fine at home.

I have tried various things, like deleting private data, re-installing the browser, using installed and portable versions, running in troubleshoot mode without addons & extensions, but to no avail.

I'm currently writing this in Chrome because Chrome doesn't have this issue.

I have Firefox Version 94.0.2 (64 Bit) running on Windows 11. First, I noticed Firefox was running very slow. It loads up slow and webpages are loading super slow. I downloaded other Browsers and they are working just fine so this tells me there is an issue with Firefox. After a while, Firefox would randomly crash for no apparent reason, while loading a new webpage or installing an Extension. I have sent Feedback for every crash. I have closed all of the Tabs I can that I am not using on Firefox, cleared the Cache, Cookies & History, Restarted Firefox & my PC and everything I can think of. Now, I just started getting an Error Message at the top of Firefox that says this: Firefox is running out of disk space. Website contents may not display properly & it includes a link to read on how to optimize disk usage. I followed the Instructions in that Article and it did not help. I am at wits end. I am ready to Uninstall and Reinstall Firefox and see if that fixes the issue but I hate to lose all of my Extensions and ETC. Can someone please help me with this? Is there anything else I can do to speed Firefox up, stop the crashes and get rid of that error message?
