When I try to attach a file to an email send in Gmail, nothing happens. The upload bar shows no progress and the email sits in the draft folder. The size of the file has no bearing on the problem. I've tried running in Safe Mode and even did a clean reinstall but it didn't help. The problem does not occur with the same accounts in Chrome or Opera; only in Firefox. I've tried everything recommended here, but nothing helped.

How do I sync bookmarks from Waterfox Classic to Firefox on the same Mac?

I used to use Firefox but changed to Waterfox Classic a couple of years ago. I have now downloaded Waterfox Current but can't transfer my bookmarks and passwords to the new Waterfox. All the suggestions on the sub-Reddit group do not work because I am not sufficiently computer literate to understand them and/or they are incorrect. Syncing did nothing so I am back on Firefox but syncing here does not bring all the bookmarks from Waterfox Classic to Firefox either. As noted, I am to all intents and purposes computer illiterate plus I am in my mid-seventies with no teenagers around to solve techie problems for me. I really don't want to have to open my bookmarked sites in Firefox and them bookmark them manually, so is there an easy way to get my bookmarks and passwords from Waterfox Classic to Firefox. If so, can someone point me in the direction of an idiot's guide so I can revert to Firefox as my default browser? Thank you

I have logins saved on various sites but recently Firefox has starting offering logins for sites that aren't the one I'm trying to log into. Because I have quite a few logins saved this can result in getting a dropdown of dozens of 'suggested' logins and finding the one in the list that's the actual login for the site I'm visiting is a bit of pain. How can I set this so that Firefox will only show me logins for the site I'm currently visiting the way it used to?

I've used prime video since 3 years without problems. From 2 days (14 Jan 2020) the prime video player gives me the error 4315 when I try to start a playback and it does not work. I've tried on different linux machine with the latest upgrade istalled (both SO and browser) and the problem is the same. I've disabled all addons and also the tracking protection of firefox without success. Does someone have the same issue? Any ideas on how to solve? Probably an Amazon problem? Please help me if you can, thanks !

I had this problem with Safari & Chrome but I was able to fix it. I cannot get rid of "search manager." I have looked into all the items listed that I can find but every time I sign onto Firefox, I'm directed to search manager. I just open a new tab. It is NOT listed as one of the search engines. How can I get rid of it? My home page is a blank page.

I've had no problem with Firefox until yesterday. When I right-click the Firefox icon it won't open a new window. I've never had this problem before. At the time this occurred I started having problems with the Windows 10 start up not opening and not displaying my apps and the Windows Picture editor presenting me with a black screen and not allowing me to import photos from my camera or iPhone. I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox and it still doesn't open a new window when I right click the icon. I can't find information on how to solve this anywhere and am hoping someone here can help me. Thank you for any help you can provide.

I'm trying to do a clean install of Firefox to return to 100% default settings. I don't want any of my old data, bookmarks, cookies, or browsing history, but every time I uninstall and reinstall Firefox, all of my previous bookmarks along with my browsing history are imported into Firefox.

How do I do an actual clean install, that allows me to start over without importing any previous data?

  • edit

I've also deleted my Firefox account and opened a new one multiple times, which I would assume would delete my old data. But even after deleting my account my old data is still imported to Firefox after uninstalling and re-installing it.

CTRL + W is the keyboard shortcut to close the active tab. This works fine if the tab isn't pinned, but if I press CTRL + W on a pinned tab, it just cycles to the next tab. This isn't ideal. The shortcut should close the tab regardless of whether it is pinned (as it does in other browsers). Anyone know why Firefox does this / is it intentional behaviour?

Two editions of 72.0.02 running on W10 platforms. Desktop runs VLC fine for rtsp urls. Laptop does not. I have added network.protocol--handler.expose.rtsp (false) AND 'Open in VLC' but neither have helped. Message returns Firefox doesn’t know how to open this address, because one of the following protocols (rtsp) isn’t associated with any program or is not allowed in this context.

Firefox initially popped open a window stating that I already had another copy open and so wouldn't open. After some investigating, I found a fix and followed the steps to delete profiles - possibly the cause of the errors. (I had applied this solution once months ago and it had worked then.) Subsequent to this attempt, I was unable to open Firefox - even with the creation of new profile(s). Given the situation, I deleted Firefox entirely by dragging into Trash and emptying the trash and re-logging in. Downloaded a clean new install from the Mozilla website. Although the DMG file downloaded fine, when I attempt to copy app to Applications folder, the system hangs. So now there is no way to re-install Firefox?!

This link /post seems to reflect my condition: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1240427 However at the given location on my computer, I only had a FB video plugin - even after i deleted that, there is no change, i.e. remain unable to implement a fresh new install of Firefox.

Suggestions? Thanks! RT12

p.s. Using a different computer to post this. When I get a chance, I'll go back to the one with this issue and see if I can post the "troubleshooting information".

I've moved my Firefox profile to a custom location (in My Documents). When I run a backup, I want to exclude files that can easily be regenerated when the profile is restored on another system. So far, my exclusion list is as follows:

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\OfflineCache\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\cache2\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\minidumps\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\safebrowsing\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\storage\temporary\*

D:\Documents\My Documents\Firefox\parent.lock

Is this a safe list?

Are there additional folders that can safely be excluded? Keeping logins active upon restore is preferable (so keeping cookies, etc. is preferable).

Edit: The list above is safe, and when I tested the restore it works fine. The accepted answer lists some more folders that can be excluded, which I haven't yet tested but looking through them they look correct.

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?
