Today Firefox stopped altogether and dimmed the entire window and popped up a "Try the Firefox VPN" message. I use Firefox specifically to get away from disruptive, intrusive violations like that. This needs to be removed immediately and never ever happen again. It's completely antithetical to the core values of Firefox.

Furthermore, several users have reported it breaking their browsing. See this Reddit thread:

https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/13rnt88/why_is_firefox_windows_11_version_showing_me/

This affected me on Windows 10 running Firefox 113.0.2 64 bit.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition in a work environment that only saves directories between weekly restarts by explicitly managed rules. As a result of some missing folders from my weekly restarts, I need to sign in to my Firefox account and enable sync each week. Currently my machine retains the %APPDATA%/Mozilla and %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mozilla directories + children.

What other directories are needed by Firefox Developer Edition in Windows to retain the user profile/syncing, et. al.?

Thank you for your time!

Hello everyone. I do not know if any else has experienced this but I have several websites that I cannot sign in to. I have no problem reaching the sites but when it comes to signing in I either get a message that my sign in information is not correct and this happens on Bestbuy.com or I get this message on Chewy.com Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.chewy.com/app/login" on this server. Reference #18.88dcda17.1684871617.2bce7d64 . Now if I use the awful MS Edge I have no problem signing in to either one. I have racked my brain to figure this out even disabling each addon which I only have a few. I have ran scans for Malware with Norton 360, Malwarebytes and MSERT and nothing there. I was hoping someone could shed some light on this in some way or maybe change a setting in Firefox that I am overlooking. I can access these sites fine and move around in them but like I said I cannot sign in into them. I would greatly appreciate any help.

Respectfully, DT

Over the years I have accumulated important links in my Firefox Bookmarks bar and passwords file and it would be a disaster if for some reason my hard drive got compromised and I could no longer access them. Is there any way to copy the data to another set-up, independent of my laptop, from where the data could be retrieved in a usable form for display on another laptop or PC? Thanks.

Prior to Version 113.0.1 I had No problems with all my web sites. Now, I have major issues. From not being able to log on to having to close the browser totally because Firefox won't allow me to go back to the site's home page. I know this accurate as I can log on to the sites via Safari and No problems and the sites work correctly.

This happens only on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition on one of my PCs and not the other. Firefox is version 113.0.2 (64-bit) and DE is 114.0b9 (64-bit)

Anyone experienced this before?

The following issue may occur if you embed the Amazon Connect Contact Control Panel (CCP) into your agent application and your users access the Amazon Connect CCP using the Firefox web browser with Enhanced Tracking Protection browser setting set to Strict.

An upgrade to Firefox, specifically Firefox non-ESR version 86 released on February 23, 2021, introduced Total Cookie Protection

which modified cookie sharing behavior across sites for users with Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Strict (Firefox defaults to Standard). Users with this specific browser setting and version combination may be unable to access the Amazon Connect CCP when embedded in another application, preventing them from handling contacts.

To prevent impact to your users (agents), we recommend that your users do one of the following:

  1. Confirm (or set) Enhanced Tracking Protection as Standard in their browser settings. Users can do this by following instructions documented here.


  1. Do not upgrade their Firefox browser version to v86 or higher.
  1. Use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to access the Amazon Connect CCP.


That's how AWS is blocking firefox users to access the sound in a firefox browser. How to fix that?

I have been using an old version of Firefox (109.0.1). I am not typically using a newer version because of an essential - to me - add-on which hasn't been updated, and which doesn't work in more recent versions.

On macOS Sierra this old version of Firefox crashes. Troubleshooting mode (I was prompted a number of times) and restarting the browser appears to eventually resolve the crash, but finally there is an issue with the memory and the browser doesn't "work."

The reason for the crash given is " MozCrashReason: Failed to load critical module "resource://gre/modules/WebNavigation.jsm" "

Who wants to hunt down their cryptically named profile? Who knows where it is? Why put us through this? Do they enjoy aggravating their users or are they just mentally deranged? Why, why, why? Who else does this kind of idiotic behavior? I can't think of a single other program that would elect to erase all of the setup we've painstakingly done for nothing.

All I did was go to the original location to check something and clicked firefox.exe. Then Poof. Did they just do a major update recently? Like today? When it checks for updates it says its up to date but it said that a few days ago I think. Version 113.0.1. I can't even find the previous profile. I see only one file under Firefox\App\bin that says "sqlite3.exe" which I think is how they name themselves. A rational person would name it PROFILE of course. But we're in the realm of the insane.

I do see "profile" in Firefox\Data though but its filled with dozens of files. And there's no indication of any other profiles there. There are several extensions there and as mine were wiped out maybe this is the old profile?

A sensible mind would simply tell us when there's a major update and how to recover everything.
