Forms not filling in on most sites with my address info, WIndows 10, Firefox 86 64 bit

There are addresses set up in options and Forms and Autofill. There is a checkmark next to Forms and Autofill.

Just not filling in forms, not sure why.

Thoughts?

Only add-in is Ublock Origin

Thank you Peter

I can't get Firefox to show the bookmark editor. I thought i may have accidentally manually disabled it for new bookmarks, but when i tried to access it on an existing bookmark, it wouldn't come up. The star button still has an "Edit this bookmark (Ctrl+D)" tooltip, but does nothing when clicked. Ctrl+D does nothing further on an existing bookmark. I went into about:config, and the browser.bookmarks.editDialog.showForNewBookmarks option was set to true. I went ahead and toggled it off and on again to see if it would refresh or something, to no effect. Ultimately, i guess that's beside the point, as i can't even bring it up for existing bookmarks.Any suggestions, beside going in and manually shuffling each new bookmark into a folder from the library?

Hi, i got a problem with Firefox 86.0 after last update. Firefox freezes when I switch video, skip ads or go to main page when any video plays on Youtube. But there's interesting thing: if i pause video first and then switch to another, all right. But if i don't pause, firefox freezes with 100% CPU load. I have never seen that problem before.

I tried these steps, but it wasn't helpful:

1. Disable recommended perfomance settings and hardware acceleration. 2. Clear cookie, cache and startup cache. 3. Safe mode with disabled plugins. 4. Refresh Firefox. 5. Full uninstall Firefox and install again.

I don't know what else i can try to solve this problem... Please, help!

Hello,

When I press CTRL + T to open a new tab, then enter a query in the address bar to search in the default search engine, the tab doesn't load at all. At the top of the tab, it still reads "New Tab" and the address bar fills up with the search query's URL. This used to only occur every 2 or 3 times I opened a new tab to search something in this way, but now it is occurring every time I attempt to open a new tab.

I have Google Container installed as an addon, which automatically opens any Google domain in a new container tab. Strangely, if I navigate to google.com, then back to duckduckgo.com to search, this resets the tab. I've tried uninstalling the Google Container addon, but the issue persists. Any help is appreciated!

The great thing about DNS over HTTPS is that it's done at Application Layer. However, Firefox doesn't leverage this - producing a boilerplate response when DNS response failed.

I'm using NextDNS with P O R N category blocked, with https://dns.nextdns.io/XXXX as my TRR (and network.trr.mode is "3")

When NextDNS does its job and responds with Server failed, Firefox should be able to produce an informative response to the user, rather than "Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at P O R N .com." which is more about connectivity than DNS failure.

Feature Request: Firefox be more informative DoH DNS failures?

Stretch Feature Request: if network.trr.mode is "2", Firefox passively notifies user that preferred method failed.

Multi-account Containers plugin prevents pages from loading

System Information

  • Firefox: version 86.0
  • Hardware: Dell XPS 13 9370
  • OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64
  • DE: XFCE
  • CPU: Intel i7-8550U (8) @ 4.000GHz
  • GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620
  • RAM: 16GB
  • Multi-account containers: 7.3.0
  • I use Pihole hosted on an RPi.

Problem

For the last few versions, opening Firefox would result in no pages loading. The tabs would keep spinning with no result.

I've disabled plugins to find the cause, and have found that I can't reproduce this issue with no plugins enabled, but can reproduce this issue with only the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin enabled.

This problem also doesn't happen if I delete rm -rf ~/.cache/mozilla/firefox/*.default-release before starting Firefox, even with the plugin enabled.

When I have this problem, I can disable the Firefox Multi-account containers plugin to get the tabs to load, and then re-enable it. This implies the plugin is somehow blocking the tabs from loading.

Thank you for taking the time to read this question. Let me know if you would like any more information.

I'm not sure if this is a question or not. But when I had a friend log out of my account on my PC Firefox browser and sign in to hers, it merged her personal data to my local PC and then merged with my own account after I logged into mine. There's an option to delete it, but if you accidentally don't check it, it stays there. She tried logging in and logging out and checking the delete local files, but her information is still stored on my PC and account. Funnily enough, later that day, I logged into her PC and browser and it's the same thing there. We only realized this just now. Is there a way to fix this all at once?

It'd be much preferable if Firefox accounts were instanced by default, and all personal data is exclusively with that account. With options to merge or download information longer term.

So, for some reason today, Firefox keeps minimizing whenever I click on it. I click on the Firefox logo in my doc, I see the browser for a second, then POOF a second later it minimizes. It's odd because the app seems to be working fine. In the split second that the browser was on my screen, I'm able to type a single letter, and all button functionality works. I even got it to go into safe mode, but the problem still persisted.

This is only Firefox-specific. Not having problems with Chrome or Safari, but Firefox is my browser of choice, so it's kind of annoying.

But for more details and troubleshooting,

- I'm running on a 13inch Macbook x86 on BigSur, so not the newer M1 Mac. - I've turned off and restarted my Mac Book. - I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox - I've used AppCleaner to get rid of all leftover files and then reinstalled - I've forced quit the app many times - I've tried the private browser and still nothing - My Mac is up to date and charged - I've run Malwarebytes to look for viruses - Firefox works on my IPad, so it's not an account issue


None of these attempted solutions worked.

Also, I can't reset Firefox or provide any troubleshooting information because the browser closes too fast before I can do anything.

Here's a video showing the problem: https://youtu.be/y3k-Q-eRyE4
