I usually have it set to block audio and video automatically, and when I'm watching actual videos on Youtube, yeah, I want autoplay turned off. BUT when I'm trying to just play some music, I'd like to allow it. However it's FOREVER TOGGLED OFF EVEN WHEN I SET IT TO ALLOW ALL AUDIO AND VIDEO. It will stay on for one song, and then turn it off again. I also can't allow an exception to that SPECIFIC website because it NEVER shows the blocking autoplay settings in the site info bar, and I can't manually add websites to the exceptions list. So I can't add youtube to my exceptions list, can't change the settings for the page, and even if I do it's NOT paying attention to my choice, even when set to allow for ALL websites.

I am no longer able to add or delete my bookmarks. When I right click delete for a bookmark, nothing happens. When I click to add a bookmark, nothing happens. This still occurs when I start firefox in safe mode. I have tried turning on sync to see if I could edit my bookmarks from my mobile, but the bookmarks failed to sync. I do not have any add-ons. I currently am on a linux OS installed on a macbook. I did not have this problem until the past month or so.

My Firefox issues continue, the App will initiate, but then just sits! No home page loads (Google), but if About is selected it will update! I have followed all the Firefox online troubleshooting advice. I have unloaded the Firefox app via control panel, manually remove remaining folders as instructed, reboot system, and reinstall Firefox. Open Firefox and it just sits won’t even open home page (Tab). Select another page from Bookmarks, same thing won’t load! Try to sign in to Firefox to Sync, nothing happens. Have even used a third party app to remove all traces of Firefox then reboot, reinstall Firefox and the problem continues. I have Firefox working on three other home computers all working perfectly. This inability to run Firefox has been going on now for several weeks. Does the Firefox folks offer a app that removes all traces of a Firefox instantiation like it never was on my computer? Maybe then a fresh install would work again. My other browsers (IE, Chrome, Edge) work fine only Firefox fail to resond. Help! I want my Firefox Browser to work again!!!! Thanks,

I've been using Firefox for years. The other day I tried to open and got a message that it could not be opened and to download again. Did that and all my files are gone. All my documents, scans etc. Saw a message during download that all that info is in a previous installation but there were no instructions on how to access them or reclaim. I am desperate. Please help.

I have used Dashlane for years. All of a sudden no extension icon appears in my browser extensions bar and no option for Dashlane appears when I search for extensions in Firefox. I have Dashlane on my computer but it won't autofill. Manually hunting for passwords is becoming very tiresome. I've gone through every Firefox explanatory page for this problem I could find in Google search to no avail. Can you tell me what's up?

So my pc restarted overnight due to automatic windows updates, and it appears that from that point at midnight, to 10am PST, most of my firefox addons have stopped working/functioning all together.

Currently running the following: Alternate player for Twitch.tv BetterTTV Dark Reader Duckduckgo Privacy essentials facebook container privacy badger Reddit Enhancement Suite Ublock origin.

I've tried disabling all extensions and running them one at a time, with very little luck. None of them seem to function any more and clicking icons for the addons seems to just 'hang' on a loading page of sorts (See photo). Ublock options pictured in the second photo just hang on that setting page.

Thanks for any help

Where is Firefox storing autofill phone number information other than the addresses?

Firefox keeps filling my phone number field on forms with an weird number string. And I haven't been able to find it or correct it despite deleting all history and removing all addresses.
