I can't download anything anymore. I get the "failed" message. I see in support questons that this has been going on for a long time even though there have been repeated "fixes" reported. I've used Firefox for a long time and really prefer it, but I'm having to change to Chrome to be able to complete my work.

I use a MacBook Pro. I recently created a new profile for Firefox (for work purposes) and set it as the default profile, because I'm trying to get off Chrome entirely. The preexisting no-longer-default profile contained all my "personal" data - bookmarks, extensions, etc. Continued using both profiles for about a week with no issues. Last night my MacBook updated and when I reopened Firefox, the new default profile was fine, but when I went into about:profiles and launched the secondary profile in a new browser, it was completely empty - no history, no bookmarks, no extensions, nothing. That's at least a year's worth of data completely gone. I've looked through support articles and past folks' questions and am just completely lost as to how to restore it or what went wrong. If it's not possible to restore that data, how can I at least prevent this from happening again? I've very much lost trust in Firefox profiles because of this. Help please?

I often drag elements on trello.com. Whenever I drag an element, that element seems to double in size, making it hard to see what is underneath. Attached is an example.

I believe this is related to the fact that I am running Linux/X11 and my DPR is 2. From about:support:

  • Window Device Pixel Ratios 2,2,2,2
  • Window Protocol x11
  • OS Linux 6.1.0-13-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Debian 6.1.55-1 (2023-09-29)

Is there an about:config setting or anything that will prevent scaling dragged elements?

I have been getting this error message for over a week now, PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. My internet is fine and I have restarted my computer a few time since the problem started. I have added some sites to the Exceptions list but even then they don't work properly. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changed the profile and they both didn't fix the problem. I am sadly not knowledgeable enough to make sense of the Web Developer Tools. The attached image is what my YouTube page looks like after add the site to the Exceptions list.

Click X (Twitter) link always goes back to previous link when Google Analytics Suppression AddOn installed

Running Firefox 120.0.1 on Windows 10. I also run Vivaldi and test with Chrome. I installed Google Analytics Opt-Out add-ons on FF, Vivaldi, and Chrome. When I go to any site with links to X (Twitter), and click on the link, instead of that link appearing the last X link I went to appears. If I click again I get to the correct link.

When I disable the Google Analytics Opt-Out add-on all works fine. This doesn't happen with either of the Chromium browsers, so I'm thinking there's something happening in Firefox by avoiding Google analytics that isn't in the Chromium browsers. In addition, this behavior began within the past couple of weeks of recent FF updates.

I installed several different Google Analytics add-ons and the same thing happened in FF, but not in the Chromium browsers.

Any ideas? I know I can disable the analytics crushers but I really don't want Google hijacking my browsing.

Whenever I open Firefox, it opens every tab from my previous session. I don't want this - if I closed the window, it was because I wanted it closed, and I don't need any automated system to re-open everything on the off chance I was wrong. I believe the setting for this is on the General tab, but as you can see in the attached screenshot, it's definitely off, yet the feature won't go away. I also tried changing the config settings, as listed here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1285172/firefox-always-restores-windows-and-tabs-after-reboot

, but it had no effect.

How do I stop Firefox opening these tabs without permission?

Videos can't be played at higher playback speed Bug

On firefox, I cant play videos at higher playback speed or it'll only play audio or video will endlessly buffer. Using user-agent spoofer and changing to chrome makes it a little less worse but still the problem sustains. On Brave, the video doesnt have any effect of higher playback speed rather it'll make the video buffer and have very strong red contrast.

Foxnews.com causes Firefox 102.0.1 to freeze when scrolling pages with lots of images. Closing and restarting FF does not help. The freeze reoccurs. What does help for awhile is to delete the file places.sqlite. After that FF runs for a few hours until the problem happens again. Is there a setting or other fix for this issue?

AdBlockPlus and uBlock Origin are both installed, but are disabled on www.foxnews.com.

I have two monitors, and I usually keep a stream/youtube video open on the second monitor while I browse the internet/play games. I used to do this all the time in OperaGX, but I recently changed to Firefox, and I've noticed that after about 10 minutes, the video or stream stops playing, and I have to manually pause and unpause the stream to get it running again. I have checked online, and I found a fix related to the about:config setting "network.http.throttle.enable" as "false" and the "network.http.throttle.version" as "1", but my firefox already had these settings like this.

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords? When I go into Preferences > Security, the box to "remember logins and passwords for websites" is checked. When I click on saved passwords they all are there. The do you want to save box is there if I have changed a login, or added a new web site. I am not in private browsing mode. The problem seems to happen every time I install the latest Firefox update, or Windows 10 Pro updates. Some of my apps want to know if I am using a new device.

On FF 120.0.1 and Tab Reloader 0.6.1

I have FF set up with 7 tabs as home page, 6 of the tabs have tab reloader set to reload ever 1 hour. This has worked fine for years, the tab reload for the 6 tabs were saved after restarting FF. I didn't have to go back and tell tab reloader to reload after restarting FF. Maybe once and a while one tab didn't get the reload saved on a restart, usually always the same one.

Now when I restart FF none of the tabs have saved the setting to reload every 1 hour.

This has been going on for the last 2 releases of FF updates and there hasn't been any updates for tab reloader. Does anyone know why this is happening, I haven't changed anything in settings. I did uncheck hardware acceleration to see if that would fix another issue, but tabs weren't reloading after restart prior to that change on hardware accelation.

After my PC rebooted, firefox will not open unless I rename the EXE to something else.

Steps already taken 1) Refresh firefox 2) reinstall firefox (including after wiping all data from PC) 3) delete parent.lock 4) check Microsoft account - I am NOT content filtering. I am the sole user in my "family" and the app lists me as the organizer. I have zero way to even set UP content filtering.

I am at my wit's end. I can't set it as a default browser because the EXE doesn't match.
