Hi Everyone,

I have seen another posts like this but the solution of them are not working for me.

The thing is that I'm not able to enter any Google features: Gmail, Drive, Keep, Maps, etc. on my Mozilla Firefox 89.0.2 (64-bit). Windows 10.

Let me explain the whole process:

All began when, out of nowhere, it started to give me TLS incompatibility errors. After a lot of working around (uninstalling, cleaning cache, history, cookies, troubleshooting/resetting), know I'm able to type my account and login to google, but when I click any icon (gmail, drive, keep, etc) the browser do nothing. It just stay there.

If I try to login on Yahoo email, I get this message: "To protect your security, www.google.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window." and when I hit "open in new window", the new windows opens in blank.

I'm able to use any Google products on a Private Windows (ctrl+shift+p). Also on M. Edge. iexplorer and Chrome.

What I have done:

  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox
  • Deleting all remaining files and registries
  • install mozilla firefox fresh downloaded
  • Refreshing Firefox on troubleshoot mode
  • Restarting windows obviously, many times
  • Uninstall firefox completely and installing an older version (88). Did not worked.
  • Upgrading from 88 to 89.0.2
  • Verifying and disabling plugins (all versions)
  • Uninstalled Chrome, then Firefox, then reinstalling Firefox after a windows restart.
  • Uninstall Mozilla Firefox, restarting PC, reinstalled Firefox, all under Windows Safe Mode.
  • All of the above using a new windows administrator account.
  • All of the above using a domain administrator account.

I'm almost throwing the towel and using another browser and I don't want it. I have been using firefox since the beginning of times... home, office, everywhere.

Please help!

Regards,

Hi,

I'm looking for a Firefox extension that works like FEBE used to.

I want to use one extension, and one extension only, to backup my Firefox history, extensions, bookmarks, tabs and profile.

I've searched for such an extension, but have come up blank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

FEBE still seems available for download, but was last updated in 2017 (FEBE http://softwarebychuck.com/febe/febe.html). Does anyone know how well, if at all, FEBE works with Windows 10 and the current version of Mozilla Firefox?

If there is no extension that backups up bookmarks, tabs, extensions and profile in one go, I'd be grateful for any suggestions for extensions that backup bookmarks, history, extensions and profiles individually. I'm already using Tab Backup and Restore extension for tabs.

The reason I'm anxious is that my Firefox recently crashed and I lost all my laboriously created settings. I was lucky to get them back through one of the backup software programs I use.

My thanks for your advice and help in advance.

Hi I run a program called nodered on a raspberry pi in docker. I use a browser to reach the user interface via lan. If that tab sits in the background too long (~5 min) the connection with the server resets and resets the gui.

I lose all current debugging information and any unsaved changes. Saving the page will stop the lost progress but not the current debugging. In other words just saving the page each time will only solve 1/2 of the problem.

Is there anyway to keep a background page active so it doesn't reset after a few minutes?

My browser opens new links in new tabs. I want them to open new links in the same tab.

Others inquire about the same issue get a response saying:;

"Did you try it? Some sites add a target="_blank" attribute to links. Links with these attributes are supposed to open in a new window when left clicked. However, Firefox by default opens these links in a new tab in the current window. By setting browser.link.open_newwindow to 1, these links will instead open in the current tab/window."

I need step-by-step help understanding what I need to do to set the browser are suggested in the above response.

HERE IS THE ANSWER Here is the answer to get TABS BELOW with Firefox V90 . . copy all of this code below the broken line into your - userChrome.css - file and save it. You can modify the 45px in this line if you wish to get an appropriate height . . just experiment with different numbers till you get it right --menubar-height: 45px; /*30px|41px=11px; caption buttons on menubar*/

Also to make the tabs wider or narrower, modify the line which is coded width: 50vw !important;

Finally you must enable - css - in Firefox, by typing about:config into your address bar, and search for toolkit. When all the toolkit options appear change the one which says toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to TRUE by click the icon in the right hand column. Than close Firefox and reopen, and check how it looks This will enable your - css - file to be read, and interpreted and accepted by the Firefox browser.

Good day,

I am so upset and frustrated after losing all of my bookmarks from my favorite browser that have decided to ask this question here which I'd normally not do and am hoping someone could clarify and guide through restoring it all.

I rebooted my PC last night and upon reboot completion my firefox was updated on its own to v89 or something, the latest as of today's date and so i spent a day not liking the most important thing that I enjoyed on the previous version, which was the ability to reload the open tab by mouse right clicking on it and selecting "Reload tab" (which was the FIRST option at the top of the menu), but for some weird reason the latest update has "New tab" as the first option to select from and no longer "Reload tab" (which is now the 2nd option), which drove me crazy as every time I went to reload my multiple open pages by mouse right clicking them and clicking on the first option at the top of the menu (which used to be reload tab), it was opening 6-7 new tabs instead as the first option at the top now is "new tab", which drove me nuts. This could be a really minor thing for some, but its not for others, its fine that its there, but there should've at least been an option to re-arrange the right click menu and either hide "new tab" as Im not even sure why that was implemented as you can simply close on the "+" signg at the end of your tab to launch a new tab if you need it, from being the first on the list or something along those lines, but I wanted my "Reload tab" be the first option on the list when I mouse right click on any page to perform action with it and thus I decided to revert to prev version Firefox Setup 88.0.1 on my Win 10 pc.

The problem I faced was when I started installing that older version I got this pop up (see attached image)

Without any serious thought I clicked on create new profile as it wouldn't let me install the older version otherwise, it either had an exit or create new option and once I created new profile it all looked brand new as if i've never owed a firefox before and I've used it for ages, my fav browser. Everything is just gone, addons, extension, everything I had organized.

I tried restoring previous profile via about:support, I see 3 on there with the latest 2 seeming to be the latest once and there was one that I think was my old one, but when I clicked on "Launch profile in bew browser" to see if thats the one I had with all my stuff, it kept giving me the same error that you see on the screenshot, so no matter what I did it just wouldnt let me launch my old one.

I searched here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-lost-or-missing-bookmarks#w_determine-if-firefox-has-created-a-new-profile tried a few things to follow, recovering bookmarks did not seem to work, I just see bookmarks from June 23rd which I didnt have any anyway, so it better not override anything I had before, and now im just so discouraged and not sure how to restore everything the way I had that deciding to post for help here.

I would appreciate if someone could clarify this instead of just posting links with tons of info to follow, I can find those links myself, some of them I followed, if someone who knows exactly what happenned and could say whether or not this is still recovarable with clear steps on what to do that would be much appreciated.

I also wonder if I was to restore my windows to previous restore point, would it restore my browser to how it was or it wouldnt?

Please assist, thank you!

Sometimes it's the website I'm connecting to directly, and sometimes it's embedded images hosted on another site that won't load. As I write this, I am unable to access YouTube. (Update, 2 minutes later - now I can.)

Ctrl + F5 doesn't work. Nor does clearing my cookies, cache, site preferences and logins. I tried disabling all my addons - that didn't work either.

This is a local problem, I think. The speed of the failed load is instantaneous to half a second in duration, judging by the refresh button spinning.

However, there is one solution: loading the page in a private window will actually fix the problem in my main window. Obviously, this is not a convenient solution, and I'd like to know what causes this.

Since the download of 89.01, my drop down menus on some features will not stay visible. They flicker on, and off.... gone. This happens on my search engine toolbar, plus on other sites that have a drop down menu fields for saved information. It works for for the main FF menu's drop down options across the top (i.e. File, Edit, View, History< bookmarks, Tools, Help).

I can occasionally cheat it by holding the left mouse button down and dragging it to where the drop down menu flickered for a brief nanosecond, but it often takes 3-4 times to get it to stay visible and select an option.

Additionally it seems to affect a few other features, such as when I hit the hold down the CTRL button, the window zooms/resizes larger. huh? That's a real pain in the butt when using copy/paste short cuts.

I've tried refreshing FF, checked settings. I have no add ons. Standard theme. Note: Windows 10, Version 10.0.19041 Building 19041, FF version 89.01 64bit, HP Desktop computer, Model 510-p020.

FF 88 is still on my HP laptop, and I don't have an issue with that computer or FF version. You won't find me updating that until this is sorted out. This all showed up with FF 89. At this point I'm wanting to find FF 88 to reinstall, but can't find a download for that except for 3rd party sites, and I'm not going there.

Anyone else experiencing this? And is there a solution I'm missing, or a fix on the horizon? Thank you so much for your assistance.
