Bear with me there's a bit of a story.

One of the apps I most use is MightyText. It allows me to send texts from my desktop computer's web browser. When FireFox automatically updated to the newest version, something didn't work right and MightyText stopped being able to connect.

My workaround was to use System Restore to go back in time so to speak. But FireFox is pretty aggressive with their updates, and eventually that stopped being a work around.

I tried to install an older version of FireFox manually but I couldn't ever get my profile to work right.

So, I've landed somewhere where FireFox has updated to the latest version, AND MightyText works just fine.

But now the problem is I cannot use any of my add-ons. Actually, I can re-fresh FireFox, and start it without any add ons. I can add all my add ons and everything works great, but if I restart my computer, FireFox will not connect to the internet (the wheel just spins) until I refresh again and wipe out all the add-ons. After doing so, all my tabs are restored, all my saved passwords, etc--and I can add back the add-ons and they will work until FireFox Crashes or I restart the computer, but then FF won't connect to the internet and around and around we go.

What's up?

Hi there,

I refreshed Firefox because I found it was running slow, and now my saved logins and passwords are not in my settings anymore.

They are still on my phone but they won't sync now to my iMac desktop.

Is there a way to restore them or resync!

Thanks for your help.

I tried to buy a new version for this desktop, however it refuses to work as well, the error code says I need IE6, I have never used internet explorer, but now it says it is required. What has MS done now? I have a laptop running windows 10 as well. I installed quick books 2009 pro on the laptop and every thing works fine. So is the problem with windows 10, or Firefox? All this seemed to have taken place after a recent windows 10 update. The computer was running extremely slow. Anyone else having similar problems?

I just got the startup screen about the 'Cinderella' button and followed the instructions. It implies I can have multiple Youtube screens open at the same time in little Windows. However I can only have 1 open at a time. When I go to a second YT video, that second video does not have a Cinderella button.

I am able to get my data by using Chrome, however. Anyone with an explanation or having the same problem?

I am trying to access my organizations Sharepiunt website (part of Office 365) from Firefox 87 on Linux.

I get the site not found screen, saying "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at XXX732.sharepoint.com." where XXX is the organization I work for.

The hostname XXX732.sharepoint.com does not resolve using nslookup, but other webbrowsers do manage to access it.

Any suggestions?

TIA, Folkert

I have a Mac and every time I quit Firefox, when I reopen the program all of my bookmarks and passwords are gone and I have to re-login to my Firefox account every time I open the program. Once I re-login all my passwords and bookmarks come back, but I don't want to login to Firefox every time I open the program. Is there anyway I can get it to stay logged in even after I've quit Firefox?

Hi,

I am running firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Windows and now when I try a page the 99% of the time firefox is not able to open those pages because security concerns or just it hangs, if I try same page in other browsers (Edge, Chorome, etc) those pages work fine. I tried everything in the firefox configuration until disable all protections but behavior is the same, is almost impossible to work with firefox now, it was my preferred browser but due to all the wrong behavior I am planning to uninstall it from all my computers/laptops.

For example, if I try to open the page https://www.pgatour.com/competition/2021/wgc-dell-technologies-match-play/tourcast.html#/hole-view?match=64&round=2&cid=185&seqHole=2&hole=2&pid=48822 , it hangs and shows a blank page, if I open the same page in other browsers page works fine.

Hi Team,

Really need help. Every time I try to search for a word, a single word in the address bar, the moment I hit <enter>, I not only get the desired search engine results but also do get an annoying URL-suggestion pop-up strip in the browser, just below the bookmark bar which basically suggestions a URL for that word.

ex. If I search for a single word like: "Nasdaq", I get a pop-up strip below the book-mark bar asking me if I was searching for "www.nasdaq.com"?

  • screenshot attached here.

This has become real annoying now as I use the browser on my office machine. Your kind suggestions on how to get rid of this browser behavior will be extremely helpful.

Hi, I've been using the Mozilla Firefox browser for a while now and I have noticed that i can not use my microphone to speak anywhere. For example, I can't speak what I want to say on Google Translate, & I can't talk in voice chats on Discord (random examples). It always says that voice input is not supported. May I know why your browser doesn't support voice input?

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks

FF 87 new 'Highlight All' scrollbar visual update causing searching to be extremely laggy/slow

I regularly use the 'Highlight All' feature when using 'Find in page' but since the Firefox 87 update, this is now almost useless to me.

If I press Ctrl+F and search for something in a large text list (55000 lines) it will be quick and show the next result instantly when I click the down arrow but as soon as I click 'Highlight All' there is a noticeable 2-3 second lag while it populates the scroll bar with the visual cues of where the search results are in the page, then if I click the down arrow to search for the next reason the page freezes and it takes multiple seconds to jump to the next result.

Before the FF87 update Highlight All worked absolutely fine and was as quick as jumping to the next result as not using Highlight All.

Since FF87, Highlight All makes the experience of searching a file so slow that I waste too much time waiting and so I've just stopped using it.


Is there an about:config method of disabling the new 'scrollbar visuals'?

I'm using a device with a slow CPU (N4100) but as I mentioned, there was no problem with this function before the latest update. I don't really care where in the document the result is, so I'd prefer to just turn off this new feature.
