I have auto fill password turned on, yet Firefox NEVER fills in the password, or my e-mail. Each and ever time I have to type it in, Firefox asks to save or update, I say yes, and password and e-mail are saved, yet the next I go to that site I have to type it in manually. I see the password and e-mail are saved accurately yet no auto-fill why?

I have a new windows laptop pc and trying to sync my information from this account to the firefox on the new laptop. I'm having a problem. I'm signed in on the old and the new but it will not sync to the new. What am I doing wrong? When I tried to sign Mozilla keeps telling me my pw is wrong! Huh? I'm signed in now. Is there a different pw for Firefox and Mozilla? I'm so confused!

Because of continuing problems with my Firefox browser I am wondering if it would be a good idea to just remove the program and install the latest version.

It is unresponsive a lot and very slow.

Thanks for your response.

Hello: Q1- I moved Thunderbird from my C drive to my D drive but...C drive still contains active content Thunderbird uses. I'm not sure about when I backup my profile folder, all the data is really being backed up? eg. C:\Users\mdc\AppData\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default-release

      F:\Users\mdc\ProgramData\Thunderbird\Profiles\cy4sug48.default

I also changed all my Thunderbird registry entries to D drive. I don't understand why C drive is still active?

Q2- When I choose Import from a Thunderbird profile this comes up (see attached picture)? This directory does not exist! Where is it coming from?

Regards -mdc

I have been unable to connect to any website through firefox. Every other browser works. Can someone please help?

The error is:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If you entered the right address, you can:

   Try again later
   Check your network connection
   Check that Firefox has permission to access the web (you might be connected but behind a firewall)

I first mentioned this in r/Firefox, and was asked to re-post here.

My FF just updated to 127.0.1 even though I have "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" and told it to wait. This was on a Windows 11 box. Everything seemed fine, but then one of my tabs crashed. I selected the reload tab option, at which point it informed me it could not load the tab because a background update had happened and I was now required to restart Firefox.

I'm not certain what version of FF I was on, I believe it was either 126 or 126.0.1.

Now, to be completely fair, I cannot with 100% certainty say that I clicked on the update later option. That said, as I _did not want to update then_, and I have put off the update before, it seems unlikely I would have made the mistake, but I wasn't recording everything I did so I can't play it back and prove it. My initial reaction was to associate it with the tab crashing somehow, as everything was working as expected right up until that moment.

Thanks

Something isn't right with Firefox formatting especially when I'm in my Email system and Facebook and probably others . . . not all of the marker and colors are appearing but the photos look OK.

For example, what I am typing here . . . the letters are not a consistent "black" . . . some letters look sort of faint while some are full black and OK. Kind of hard to describe but it indicates that something is not completely working properly.

If you can, please call me at [edited] and/or Email: [edited]

Cheers!

I have done every single thing including reinstalling Firefox. The Youtube videos will not buffer in my Firefox browser in ANY mode, safe, troubleshooting, etc. I got it to start after reinstalling then about a minute into the video it started buffering again. I can watch vids in ANY other browser, and am connected by ethernet to my router.

I have a problem when I read a specific webpage and firefox jumps to the end of the webpage. This happens with one specific webpage, a Swiss newspaper: call www.nzz.ch - Now, select one of the articles but in the following way: do a right-click on the title of the article and select "open in new tab". (This is important: it does not happen if you left click on the article and open it in the actual tab.) Now you have the article in a new tab, you begin reading it and slowly scroll down using the mouse wheel. But then, with the slightest scroll back (upwards), firefox will jump to the end of the web page. All you can do is go back (ctl+upward arrow) and look for the place where you have been. Once this has happened, firefox will no longer scroll to the end of the page, you can scroll up and down, and everything works fine. But if you close the tab and open this or another article again with right-click, open in new tab, you have the insane effect again. I have no idea how I could analyze this myself and am thankful for help.

Was clearing out some files yesterday in the middle of taking screenshots on Netflix through firefox (per usual) when suddenly whenever I go into a netflix TV show I get the purple-green image down below that's all wrong and corrupted. Feeling especially confused because I can take screenshots anywhere else on other browsers or Firefox, even on the Netflix home page, perfectly fine - but this format below stopped working?? Am hoping to resolve the issue quickly cause one of my Favourite shows I wanted to post about is having a new season drop in like 2 days :(

I am repeatedly kicked out by YouTube, because I seem to have one or more ad blockers active. My problem is that I even don't know where to find them, so that I can deactivate them. I have tried earlier to find a solution, but to no avail. Apparently there are more people having this problem.

I am now forced to watch YouTube on Edge, which feels like treason, because I am a Firefox user for many years.

In case you would have a solution, please don't bombard me with geek talk. I am an IT layman.
