Accessing mail.yahoo.com as I have for many years, recently many functions do not work in Yahoo mail with Windows 10. Cannot select a message, cannot reply or forward, cannot go back to messages clicking the "back" arrow, cannot select the settings button. Yahoo mail works correctly in Chrome however. How to fix??

This should sound familiar.... It's copied from a 2 year old thread on the FF boards. I cleared the cache and flushed all my cookies. I removed my recently added addon (Malware Bytes). Problem still there.

Hi Firefox community,

Do we have any settings in firefox where we can enable/disable dark mode in firefox browser instead of installing a plugin or addon? I am looking something that is offered within the browser instead of a plugin.

Thank you all.

We have our downloads set to a network location, and ask to save in location. We have needed to apply the fix I found in a forum by going to about:config, browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel and change value from true to false.

However, when even going to a PDF on the internet, it is automatically saving to the network location. Can this be changed?

Thank you! Nicole

Firefox 105 update corrupts places.sqlite

Auto-updated to v105 today (105.0.2 64-bit Windows 10) and all bookmarks were gone. Not just gone but the bookmark manager seems not to be rendering properly (see attached image where there should be at least some elements drawn). Additionally, neither the bookmarks nor history left pane show anything (second attachment).

The 105 update was applied this morning when first opening the browser. Profile folder -> bookmarkbackups shows a backup from just before the update. Bookmark library -> Restore gives that backup as an option, but restoring that backup has no effect (does nothing).

Exiting Firefox and manually moving places.sqlite to a backup location and then restarting also has no effect. places.sqlite is rebuilt but library -> restore still has no effect.

When I open Reddit in regular browsing mode the page loads but I cannot interact with anything at all. I cannot scroll, click buttons, or even go to other tabs or close the tab. Firefox (from what I can tell) freezes completely, the buttons to close the window and minimize it do not work either and I can only close it with task manager. I went into troubleshooting mode to try and fix it myself and it works perfectly there. I went back into regular browsing mode and disabled all my addons, but the problem happened again. After this I tried clearing my startup cache and the browser still froze. Other websites like Youtube and Twitter function normally.

Why am I suddenly unable to access websites that I have used for years with no problem. What is going on. I cannot, for example, go to my Facebook page, and I've had trouble accessing my email. What the heck is going on?

I am suddenly unable to access websites, some of which I've viewed for years, like Facebook and my email, for Pete's sake. What is going on? I'm told there's a security risk and there's nothing I can do. What has changed. This is distressing in the extreme. I have put virus protection in place, and use a VPN, so I feel reasonably secure in my online work. Something has changed at Firefox, what the heck is it, and how do I correct it?

Resurrecting a firefox "device" and profile/session after reinstall

I'm reinstalling Windows on my computer after a hardware issue, and I do have a backup of my old data. I was using Firefox Sync, where this "device" was called "Firefox Maison".

When I reinstall firefox on my new computer, how do I make it a continuation of the former "device"/session, rather than it being registered as a new device with the same "Firefox Maison" name ? I sent tabs from another device to "Firefox Maison" while the computer is kaput, and Ideally I would wish these tabs to appear on my new Firefox when the operation is finished - if this particular thing can't be done that's not the most important, but I think it helps understanding what kind of continuation I want to do. The restoration of my (normal) open tabs would be much more important, for example.

I managed to do that when a very similar issue happened to me some months ago, but it was clanky with appdata files, and I feared corrupting my sync session in some way, and/or losing data, so if anyone has a more reliable walkthrough, that would be ideal.

I have checked several times, windows, and FireFox (drivers I haven't) are all up to date; I have tried: Reinstalling, Resetting, removing all extensions and theme, each individual extension, watching videos on the private mode, downloading firefox fresh once again, etc. Nothing works, I can't play a single video on youtube through FireFox. Be it private, or not. Reddit videos do not work, Netflix does not work, everything keeps on loading, I'd like any help. I want to stay with FireFox, but I can't watch a single thing...

I recently switched to linux and I cannot find a way to link profiles from my windows install. In an older version I could make a symbolic link in ~/.mozilla/firefox/Profiles to the profiles in /run/media but now profiles are stored in ~/.mozilla/firefox and it doesn't understand my symbolic links, how can I do this?

Hi, I had to recover my computer so I was re-downloading firefox and it looked as though I was missing some bookmarks so I clicked import -> restore and restored from today, only now I only have 11 bookmarks left out of thousands and I can't figure out how or where to restore them. I don't have any backup info on this computer since I had to wipe it completely but now it seems as though whatever sync I used has been overwritten or disrupted. My bookmarks are really important to me and I really need them back, is there anything I can do to restore them?
