My bookmarks and history are gone. There is a red banner across the top, which reads, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." No matter what I do, I can't seem to get either fixed.

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

After update to firefox 80 sometimes random pages do not load. They open as blank white page with refresh button being inactive. Only way to solve this problem is close page, open new tab and try to load this page again.

This is completely random, happening on all sites, opened from links on other sites, bookmarks or speed dial. No idea what could cause it. Maybe firefox has some problems with creating new process for new tab if my process limit is set to 1?

When I open all my bookmarks (I have over 200 tabs), the articles from getpocket tend to fail.

In previous versions of Firefox, when I opened a huge number of tabs, the CPU would max out even after waiting several hours.

I installed Peter Simonyi's addon which opens tabs slowly and it works, but this addon is not actively monitored by Firefox.

When the latest version of Firefox came out, I was really happy because the 100% CPU problem went away, but to my dismay most of the getpocket articles failed to load.

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

Is any one else experiencing an inability to log in to wellsfargo.com. I have latest version of firefox and have no new add-ons or changes in security/anti-virus or malware programs.

Their tech support said "sounds like a browser issue" . I switched to ie and logged right in. I use to log in a dozen times a week and have not ever been denied. When I try to log in the screen re-freshens and is blank. No bad log in script or any other prompts, just a waiting log in screen.

Thanks for any thoughts or similar experiences.

Hi I have been using firefox and thunderbird on WINDOWS 8.1 for many years now. I have easily restored firefox and thunderbird profiles(bookmarks,passwords,themes,addons etc.) after periodic formats and reinstallations. But now I am planning to move to fresh install of WINDOWS 10. Will simple copying and pasting of profile folder work or should I use Sync? or any other option? I haven't used Sync till now,so a bit hesitant.

Just installed 81.0.2 update, did not install cleanly, had to reset. All privacy & security settings were wiped. Redid everything, am now unable to block videos on news sites, which I had done previously. Can block autoplay with following config settings -

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages - false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled - true media.autoplay.block-webaudio - true media.autoplay.blocking_policy - 1 media.autoplay.default - 5

Can no longer block videos from loading. How to do this in 81.0.2?

I've had firefox for a long time on multiple computers, and on the one I'm using now for 8 years. Only within the past two months has this issue popped up. That being: I cannot get any audio from youtube no matter what. There is no speaker on the tab to show it, and I don't mute my tabs ever so it's not that. Even muting and unmuting it does nothing.

The video always buffers for 5 seconds upon loading the player before autoplaying with no sound. Every video does this, EXCEPT for if it's flash based which I tested via this link. Flash audio players have no problems either. The speaker icon DOES show up for these ones, but nothing else.

And there's another problem... sometimes, it fixes itself! Out of nowhere, while I'm doing something else on my comp or on my phone (just away from the browser in general) when I let it loop through a playlist, the sound just happens. It startles me every time, because there seems to be no rhyme or reason.

I've done the common checks you do for your computer audio and it's none of that. Browser only. Restarted comp and refreshed firefox; nothing. Completely wiped firefox from system and reinstalled (which gave me a whole new host of issues for another topic); still nothing. For 2 months it's been agonizingly painful trying to get answers so I can stop focusing on it.
