If I go to Safelite and start scheduling an appointment, navigating through that set of webpages will cause my computer to green screen/crash. The landing page at https://safelite.com asks for a zip code, and submitting that form puts you into the scheduling flow; after entering some details about a vehicle, I can click back and continue a few times (less than ten) to make my computer crash. I was able to reproduce the issue in troubleshooting mode. I also tried the same steps in Chrome, but it did not produce a crash.

This computer has had an issue with crashing in this manner for a while now, but this is the first thing I've noticed consistently causes a crash. I'm not expecting a solution, but I am hoping to close in on the issue; whether or not Firefox is the source here is questionable, but it does seem highly entangled.

How to save images to the downloads directory (that I chose in settings) without using right click -> save image as .. -> popup window .. then choose the location where I want to save it.

I tried alt+click, it didn't work, it saves the webpage url instead of the image. I prefer a solution that does not involve any add-ons.

Since about 13:00 GMT yesterday, Firefox could not load or display the Hostinger h-panel. It sometimes partially and sometimes completely displays all the page content. But all the controls are dead. Firefox seems to be very busy doing something. I told Hostinger and they spent some time looking into the problem. They got Firefox to load the h-panel but said that it was vastly slower than other browsers in doing so. With me, Firefox still stops doing anything once the content is loaded and ALL controls on the page are still dead. When closing Firefox in this state, there is considerable delay before the window actually closes.

I thought that perhaps Hostinger had done an update that called in some proprietary JavaScript extensions that Firefox couldn't handle. I get the impression that in trying to display the h-panel pages, Firefox is trying to acquire some content from an external site, as requested somewhere within the HTML/JavaScript source code.

Any ideas? robert_john.morton@yahoo.com

I have noticed that my browser saves certain data that was filled into forms on websites such as contact info, or 2FA codes. Of course, the all options for Logins and Passwords as well as Forms and Autofill are turned off. So I wonder, what causes this behavior? I would maybe think these are some cookies, but after clearing them and deleting all site data this still happens. For 2FA codes this is harmless. but I'm concerned Firefox may do this for passwords too. Anyway, why would I need to save info of TOTP?

Note: Example is for SimpleLogin.

HI, I use Firefox for Kiosk system... what is not usable for this application is Firefox sending popups to remind the user of ie. "do not forget to save your data" or similar... this breaks the kiosk system and needs Admin intervention... I love FF, but how can I suppress these support popups in this environment?

This might just be a blind thing, I use the NVDA screen reader, but when I sign in to firefox, my password is 12 letters long, but when I look on my settings page, it's 18 characters long, is this normal?

I can log in using my 12 letter password and it's not a master password, I don't have one of those.

Any help would be apreciated.

Up until this last update, in Gmail inbox, each message could be moused over top and action icons would show up. This no longer happens and I don't know why. It was very convenient not to have to open the message to take action on it and then return to the inbox. Now if I click the checkbox on the left side of the message those icons appear, but I never had to do this before??? I have not made any changes to the settings on my 1 year old Macbook Pro or Firefox configuration...

Hi, Is there a possibility to delete the sync data without completely deleting the account? I used Firefox Sync to transfer some passwords and I understood that they are encrypted on the sync server. However, it might be that even the encryption might be broken and attackers could steal my passwords. That´s why I would like to delete the password data on the server (but keep the account).

Is this somehow possible? I didn´t find any article about exactly this topic.

Best regards, Sebastian

I'm at a loss for words here. I have a website I frequent and it has a really annoying behavior. I'm a developer so finally I mustered the strength to do something about it. I googled how to create an extension in Firefox and within 5 minutes I had a working extension that solved their annoyance. However, I can only load it temporarily. If I close Firefox, it goes away. When I try to actually install it, it says I need to have it signed. I have now spent the better part of an hour trying to find out how to self sign it. I refuse to believe that I have to submit this to Mozilla for me to be able to install my own code. Can someone please send me in the direction of how i self sign and install my own extension. I have no intention of publishing, I only want to run this for myself.

Firefox crashed, Reinstalled it v121.0.1 Win Pro 10 (x64)

Although Extenions are reinstalled, I cannot find any way to get them into a toolbar now, (Using the Drag - Drop - Shift method)

There is supposed to be a "Gear alongside each extension" so that can be chosen, but no gear which works now.

Very frustrating as cannot properly access these extensions now.

Some time ago, I found the way to inser these Extensions (Addons) into the Toolbar, but cannot remember how I did it.

The Extensions show they are installed and "working" but it's rather useless nmot being able to get the shortcuts for each onto the Navigation Toolbar.

Appreciate help - Thank you.

I asked a question earlier about being blocked from a site that I frequent while using Firefox but not when using Edge. I don't use Edge much but another difference has become apparent. Many of the sites like news sites an information sites seem to take longer to open than they used to on Firefox, I can see little icons going back and forth in the tab at top. Normally this lasts for ten seconds or so then the site I was after appears. I was on Edge and noted that this was not happening. I spent several minutes going back and forth and I definitely have an issue with Firefox. I have Windows 10 running on an old desktop. I use Express VPN I use BitDefender In Firefox I use Adblock Plus, Ghostery, I use Duck Duck search

Do I need a new version of Firefox or what? It says it is up to date 121.0.1 Have been using Firefox for years and not had any issues like these. Mark

After a crash earlier today within my 32bit install of Firefox, I upgraded to the 64bit version. Since then I have not been able to play videos from sites that utilize DRM.

I have tried the following:

  1. Check and Uncheck "Play DRM content"
  2. Check for updates while in the addons related page.
  3. Checked my hosts file which is blank
  4. Stopped my AV and attempted to update as well as Enable/Disable Play DRM
  5. Get a 404 when attempting to go to "redirector . gvt1 . com" site.

When I looked in my profile directory, I noted that both the "gmp-gmpopenh264" and "gmp-widevinecdm" directories are empty. I found and downloaded the most recent openh264 dll for windows 64bit. Firefox continues to say "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly." I have not found the most recent wildevine version so I have not tried to update it manually.

Could there be something squirrelly with my user profile that needs to be rebuilt? (I can export the bookmarks, etc) The 32bit Firefox crashed with no messages while watching a live YouTube stream. I just installed over without uninstalling the previous version. I was afraid of losing my current settings. The crash caused my "previous session" to be lost.
