Hi For the last few weeks I've been having a problem with GMail on Firefox. It happens on 2 PCS, a Dell Inspiron 5770 (laptop) and a Dell Inspiron 3264 AIO (desktop) both running Windows 10 Home Version 1903 Build 18362.959 installed in July 2019 and August 2019 Both with Firefox 79.0

These problems occur on Firefox only. They do not happen on Chrome, which I am reducued to using on both PCs for my gmails .They do not happen in a private window of Firefox.

The problems - which I assume are linked due to their occuring in the same time fram 1) On starting GMail by www.gmail.com in the address line, in a new tab, nothing happens. the screen remains blank. I start again, same command, and it changes to https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox and gmail starts. I can stop and start GMail with no problems. If I stop and restart Firefox then the problem occurs again If I start in an existing tab, by typing gmail.com over the existing page address, it reverts to the page address I overwrote. If I start some other page, e.g. Kayak and then GMail: blank page Sometimes if I start anotherGoogle app first, the problem does not occur. It's not consistent the problem occurs occasionally, but not often, with other google Apps: Google, Translate, Drive, Photos, Maps, Contacts, Calendar

2) After running fo some time, GMail seems to lose connection with the internet (a WiFi) It says something like lost connection retrying in 10 s and then 20 s and then more seconds. It doesn't reconnect.

My homepage is an html page with a list of my favourite links; I have been using it for some time and it is the same on Chrome, Opera and Edge

What I have done, step by step I searched forums, including this one. I disabled all add-ons: AdBlock-Plus, FacebookContainer and FoxClocks. I cleared all cookies for GMail I cleared all cookies I cleared history I cleared everything I could find. Sometimes the problem went away, but it always came back.

Any suggestions, workarounds, fixes or just words of comfort would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, i have a automatic script what do anything uhhhh automatic. It installs Firefox too.

However, when installing, I get this error message (see image): If you press OK Firefox will be installed, but every time you install this error message keeps coming up and that makes my script a bit bad.

Please no other answers as a possible solution, thank you.

As a researcher and writer I'm constantly on the web, and have many downloaded book marks that were organized by folders on the Menu bar. But this old laptop seems to crash frequently when I'm using Firefox. After the most recent crash most of the folders had vanished - three did not.

How can I restore those missing folders to the menu bar? Redoing them is a possibility, but would take a great deal of time.

Thanks,

DMS

I use the the bookmarks toolbar extensively, I have nested folders in the toolbar. Recently one of my folders disappeared, I blame my wife but it could have been me... I am hoping it got dragged to another folder but have not been able to find it yet. I used the "show all bookmarks" page and searched and found one of the links in the missing folder but I am unable to tell where the bookmark is stored in my hierarchical organization. Can anybody give me some pointers on finding my missing folder?

Thanks!

After clicking on Delete cookies and Cache for only ONE particular website, in Cookies and Site Data, Manage Data then closing Firefox and restarting it, it lost ALL of my Tabs, previous browsing session history and my Bookmarks Setting which was pinned on the left side of the screen and the Menu Bar! I tried Refreshing Firefox but that didn't help. Under Startup, I had the box selected to Restore Previous Session. What's going on with Firefox?? This is especially frustrating because I don't have time to waste trying to fix Firefox---especially while simply trying to fix a problem with one website which as made thing worse.

Why should this problem occur and how can I get all of my previous settings back shortly and make then stay?
