I recently refreshed my Firefox, as it was being very slow. I'm trying to restore my bookmarks now and just getting the message "unable to process the backup file". Googling the problem turns up long, technical answers that I can't parse. Can somebody explain to me (a computer idiot) how to fix this?

Up until today, my address bar had a down arrow that I could click to open the menu and select the sites I wanted. Now it's different. Now there is no down arrow and when I click on the address bar it opens a menu with a bunch of different sites that never were in there before. In fact they're the first ten of my new tab sites, which DO NOT belong in my drop down menu, and I can't delete them from the menu. I want this back the way it was.

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Okay, so, quick question - I just got a new computer and installed the entire OS (MacOS) directly from my physical backup on . However, Firefox is working quite poorly. It's not loading sites properly, e.g. Facebook, and it won't load pictures on a Danish sales platform - and quite a few other places - most importantly it won't load Tinder profiles to swipe in desktop version. Damn it all to hell!

Also, several of the tabs have a weird, white line under them, and it started blinking with this weird red line in the very top of the browser.

However, if I were to reinstall Firefox altogether, would that delete all my open tabs (of which I have a couple of hundreds)? As per advice from a few geeks, I cleared my entire history to see if it made a difference - alas, the problems continued and multiplied.

If reinstalling and/or refreshing the browser will delete all my tabs - what are my options?

All the thumbnails except for the starting page are blank when restarting the browser. I need to click on each and every tab to make the thumbnails show.

Is there a way to change this? It drives me up the wall, especially when having to restart multiple times -which happens a lot due to several factors. I have vision problems and need the thumbs to show to find my way around quickly.

Thanks.

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

Firefox v69.0 Whenever I click on one of the matches returned from a search, or click on an embedded link, Firefox forever highlights that selection even though I don't want to be reminded months later that I had looked at that site. This is irksome because I can't ever get a clean slate for doing searches. Every similar search will yield a page full of highlighted links I may have used in the past on a topic that is only tangentially related. Also, since this highlighting persists independently of clearing history it entails a severe privacy leak. If anybody who is authorized to use my machine suspects that I may have an interest in, say, pizza dough, they need only do a search for pizza dough on my machine and any link I had ever selected in the past is highlighted, from which links it can be easily determined that I have both an interest in the topic at large and what aspect of the topic in particular appeals to me.

How do I disable this "feature", please?

I have three browsers on my Dell Latitude E 6320 Windows 10 operating system namely Edge, Firefox and Google Chrome. Firefox is my favorite browser among the three which has been working normally untill a fews ago I decided to make Firefox as my default browser.

Of recent when I click on the Firefox Icon to surf the internet, a small window appears making reference to drive C:\windows\system32\......... with something like .dll at the end of the path and some statements which disappear before I can completely read the contents of the small window. As the small window disappears, Firefox launches up and remained launched with nothing else happening. Even when I type Firefox address in the address bar and press the enter key, nothing happens. The text message "Hand shake" with any site address typed into the address bar that is usually displayed at the lower left handside of Firefox page before the required website is connected and displayed, is no longer been displayed. I have uninstalled the 79 version and reinstalled the same version which I have just downloaded for resolving the problem, thinking that the uninstalled one has been corrupted, but the problem still remains.

This is the problem I am experiencing with Firefox browser presently hence I am asking for assistance of how to solve this problem from the community.

Thank you and for looking forward to your response.

I am having problems while trying to watch YouTube with the Firefox browser. I keep getting as yellow bar at the top of the page when trying to do anything on YouTube. A screenshot of the error is attached. I've asked Mozilla about this before, and I am also trying to get a fix from Dashlane. It concerns the message "a script in the extension Dashlane is causing Firefox to slow down" then it shows Learn more. When I open that if the warning stays long enough to click on it. It recommends changing dom.max_script_run_time. It shows it is set at 10, and will not allow any change as suggested. Then it suggests adding JavaScript toggle on and off. That does not help either. I would thank anybody between Mozilla and Dashlane that can provide a reason for this continued error message and how to fix it. This has been going on for months.
