This week Facebook decided to stop working properly on Firefox. The image below shows what happens on first attempting to run Facebook after the computer starts. It will hang like that indefinitely. If I close the Firefox tab and run Facebook again it will work. Why does closing the tab or browser make it work on the 2nd attempt? Please note: This not a cache cookies issue, it happens regardless of whether I've run Ccleaner or not. That is the question. A real world analogy would be something like this... I open a porch door then open the front door but the front door won't open. I close the porch door, open it again, then the front door opens. Do you see what I mean. Nothing has changed except opening the porch door a second time which has no physical impact on the front door. I'm probably not describing that well, it's as if doing an unrelated thing a second time makes something work. I've started to use Chrome for Facebook now, I'm fed up of Firefoxes problems lately. Another problem I'm having is a strange Youtube anomaly: https://support.google.com/youtube/thread/77200164?hl=en Particularly annoying. Thanks for any help.

I have a customers dead laptop, she wants her firefox profile copied to her new laptop.

Since the laptop is dead, I can't use sync. I have her profile data, which is useless in her new laptop.

For future reference, how am I supposed to do this? I've always kept as many customers as I can on firefox.

Is there a conversion tool? A way around this? Or am I just going to have to say shes out of luck?

Hi All,

Several times I've cleared my cache and managed to also delete ALL of my logins. I most certainly do uncheck the box for "Cookies and Site Data", leaving only "Cached Web Content" checked and it still deletes all info. Also whenever I go back in that page, both are (again) checked.

What am I doing wrong?

Is there a way in "about:config" to default this area to "Cached Web Content" only?

I'm using 83.0b6 (64-bit) with both an address bar and search bar. Recently, if I type a g into the address bar the second suggestion is "search with google directly from the address bar. Typing an a does the same thing for amazon. Search suggestions are turned off. Top sites are unchecked in the address bar settings. All Firefox home content is unchecked in settings.

Is it possible to remove these "search with" suggestions from the address bar drop down? Thanks.

A few days ago Firefox automatically updated and destroyed all my logins and passwords and a huge amount beside. Yes, there was blurb about how to find them which involved a file which did not exist on my system and the whole was not comprehensible.

I did ask for help but got nothing

Somehow, the next day my system had gone back to the earlier setup. Now Firefox wants me to update AGAIN!

Given my experience how can I trust Firefox not to destroy my data?

I foolishly clicked on Refresh and when it was done I had lost all bookmarks and history. I am at my wits' end trying to get back to where I was and will never do that again. Considering I am 80 years old I know for a fact there are probably a lot of things I won't be doing again but I would like to just go back to where I was. I am no longer able to get into Facebook which isn't going to cause the Earth to spin off its axis but I have several friends I really enjoy staying in touch with and it isn't possible to even enter FB now. I have tried everything, read all directions, followed all orders, jumped through all hoops (great Kodak moment for those of you with cameras) and I have failed.

I know that someone here, probably many of you, are more knowledgeable with the way this works and I would just enjoy being able to contact these two friends and get their emails, the FB connection isn't all that important. Now my question is and feel free to laugh but could this Refresh have caused some glitch in the innards of something or other that would cause this problem?

If any of you could help out a senior here I would be most appreciative.

Thank you for even reading my whining and begging plea.

Hello,

One website gives me a failed secure connection:

An error occurred while connecting to www.cdkeypt.pt. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

This error is in Firefox but this site doesn't work in any browser

I restart the pc when it re-enters the desktop if i open the browser before the computer fully starts the site works fine which makes me conclued that something is interfering with it and it most be an update or something because i didn't install anything new, but what? it is only this site that doesn't work all the others are working fine.

I tested opening the site in another pc in my network and it works fine.

I hope someone can help me,

Thanks

Firefox version 82.0.2 (64-bit) I can no longer use Firefox to view Facebook. Within minutes Firefox slows down and no longer responds. I had a similar problem previously with some builds of Firefox but not this bad. Seems like the problem is fixed in one build and then re broken in a newer build. I even get a warning from Firefox that the page is slowing down Firefox. Never seen this before 82.0.2 (64-bit). I can use Chrome, Edge or Opera just fine. The trouble is I'm a Firefox user and have been since the beta builds back in the stone age. Anyone else have this problem.

Thanks
