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

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.

I used some software that damaged one of the Windows user accounts (a local account, not a Microsoft one). I can no longer open Firefox to export the bookmarks. However, from another Windows login I am able to access the profile files, where a page on this site (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profiles-where-firefox-stores-user-data) says they are stored. I copied both folders to the desktop of the other user account. Now, how can I get Firefox to access the data in those files? I would like the passwords especially, but also the bookmarks if possible. I'm willing to open an entirely new user account on the computer, if that is required, and deposit the files there (I'll probably end up doing that anyway; the user account they came from is damaged beyond repair, and the one I'm using now is for business, not my personal use).

I updated my PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a few days ago. (Firefox-Version 82.0.3 (64-Bit)) After i did this Firefox seems to refuse to save any login data. I have set www.google.de as the starting page. Every time I open Firefox I first have to consent, that cookies are saved (Firefox also doesn't save this consent). Then my google accounts are not logged in. This problem is present on every page I have login data to (youtube, facebook etc.) I can login to all of this sites. But when I close Firefox for more then 5 seconds it all starts again. I have read and made all the steps from the mozilla support page but that doen't change anything. The problem keeps reappearing. Now I need your help please.

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?

When I refreshed Firefox, I went to add my "additional search engines," so when I search for something in the search box, I can choose my default search engine, or another one such as Wikipedia or Amazon.

Now on my new Firefox profile, there are many search options I can't choose anymore, such as imdb, thesaurus.com or "just watch" (to find where shows are streaming), for example. They used to work fine on my old profile.

I've tried finding them by clicking Tools | Options | Search | Find more search engines, and also by clicking the magnifying glass in the search box and clicking "Add [whatever] Search," which isn't there for some web sites, or by clicking the 3 dots in the address bar and then clicking "Add Search Engine," which also isn't there for these other sites.

So you can add YouTube as an additional search engine, but not imdb anymore.

But when I go back to my old Profile, all these different pages I want are available from the search box next to the address bar.

Why is this? Why would they make something LESS functional than it was before?

Thank you.

I have noticed that when I type "!g" in front of my search string in the address bar, the search is done with google despite using a different search engine. In addition, almost every letter on the keyboard will search a particular domain. For example, "!r" searches through reddit.

The weird thing is that I cannot find any documentation of this anywhere, and I cannot find any settings on this anywhere. The only similar thing is being able to use "@" with a custom keyword that has been previously set in the "search engines" menu in the settings. But this menu is limited and it is difficult to add search engines to it, as it requires you to visit that website, find the green plus sign in the tiny looking glass icon on the search bar next to the address bar, and click it and add the search engine. Then you can customize the keyword and then you can use, for example "@w" for example, to search wikipedia. But not every website gives you the option to add their search engine. For example,visiting Reddit results in no green plus sign over the looking glass icon in the search bar next to the address bar, despite the fact that "!r" works just fine.

So this is all very confusing, I hope someone can tell me what is going on. Thanks.
