Bit of a niche question hope someone can help.

I’m running some website testing and have a script set up to open Firefox at regular intervals using Selenium in python, run tests and exit. Running it in a MacBook using Catalina and have the latest versions of Firefox. I tried a different MacBook as well.

Randomly, after running enough tests, it will fail to launch, throwing and error code “can’t quit and exited process”.

Once this happens, I can’t open Firefox at all, even manually. The icon just bounces and fails to launch. Oddly enough, I can’t launch Chrome either, even if I haven’t launched it since restart. Restarting my computer will fix the problem always.

I’ve tried running in headless mode to, no avail. Any ideas here?

This morning I noticed new bookmarks on my desktop were no longer syncing to my Android phone. When I tried logging out and in again, I could no longer login on my desktop. Each attempt generates an "Unexpected error" message.

I have already tried the Refresh option from the troubleshooting menu. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling. After both I am still getting an "Unexpected error" message.

I have also attempted to create a new profile, but attempting to enter an email address produces a 500 error.

Any ideas?

Is it possible to always show the tabs list menu button in Firefox?

When a window has only a few tabs open, the menu button for the list of tabs, which appears at the right hand end of the tab bar, is not shown. This menu button only seems to appear once you have more than around 15 tabs open in the window.

However, before you reach that number of open tabs, the individual tabs become quite narrow and it is still easier and quicker to choose a tab from the menu than by hovering over the narrow tab titles.

Is there an about:config setting or extension that will make this tab list menu button stay visible at all times?

On PC, I used to use the addon Session Manager : http://sessionmanager.mozdev.org/ It creates files that go by the extension ".session", and I have a folder with very many of those.

I don't know if up to date session managers work with the same file type, or whether it's a standard. I am looking for an addon that can at least read and open them. And preferably, that one can save and process sessions in this file type, to keep some continuity with my old profile. And still better, some cross browser session manager, so I can open those old files in, say, chrome too.

I have URL directing MS Word to a file on WebDAV server (ms-word:ofe|u|https://server/file.docx). Word is opening file if address is open from shortcut on desktop or url in IE but is not able to open file if url is invoked from Firefox. Word is launched but shows error . Is process launched by URI scheme somehow dependent on application from which it is executed?

Hello,

Within 30 minutes usually of watching a video on Hulu. Hulu will stop playing, only emit sound for a few moments and then Firefox is frozen and will not close. windows is also becomes unusable without a hard shutdown.

There's no crash report generated in this scenario.

Safe mode still causes the issue.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

MSN is my homepage, across the header are all the pages available to me : Outlook, Facebook , etc. They all open on Chrome but for some reason all open except Outlook on Firefox. I just updated Firefox ( 11/9/19 ) so that's not the issue. Please advise as this is very inconvenient and makes using Firefox my second choice. Thanks.

Up until Firefox 69.0.3 outlook.live.com "Hotmail" worked fine. Firefox updated to 70 and all I see on the page is the Outlook blue logo.

This is what I have done without any help:

- Ran Firefox in safe mode - Deleted all cookies from Outlook and Microsoft - Deleted all certificates from Outlook and Microsoft

When everything was deleted I was able to log in to Outlook, but that's about it. I just end up back at the blue logo.

The only thing that breefly worked was installing Firefox 69.0.3, but Firefox crashed my computer and once I got it back up I had to use Chrome to install Firefox 70 and I ended up back at square one.

I will not do a refresh start on Firefox since I have spent years customizing Firefox.

All other sites seem to work as they should except for Outlook.live.com
