I use Firefox on my various devices and I've never faced this issue before. On my new laptop which is a XPS, whenever I let my laptop go to sleep, once I return it from sleep Firefox is unusable (frozen). I can do other things with my laptop but I can't interact with Firefox in any way as it is completely frozen. Sometimes I am able to open a new tab but can't type anything into the search bar.

What I do to use Firefox right now is kill the process in task manager and launch Firefox again and for the most part I am able to use the browser but it is very tedious having to do this. Some steps I've tried to permanently fix this so far are disabling hardware acceleration and disabling disk caching but nothing seems to have fixed the problem so far.

Hello, I am just disappointed. My Firefox icon is missing from the Start menu and therefore from the taskbar when launching.

I tried to clear the icon cache (by deleting iconcache* in "C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer"), Reinstall firefox, delete %APPDATA% and %LOCALAPPDATA% firefox folders, but nothing changes.

Any clue? I don't have any idea.

PS: It's only for my profile. I just don't want to delprof, I have tons of apps with settings, etc

scuz my english.

I've been having trouble for a couple of months with Firefox. It's on both my desktop and my laptop with both Firefox and Firefox Developer. It seems to happen at random, but instead of being able to see words, all I can see is symbols like these (attached). If I copy/paste it into a word doc or a text file, I can read it just fine. It's only in the browser that I experience these issues.

Has anyone else had these issues? Is there an easy fix that I'm just not seeing?

Thanks for your help in advance!

I'm looking for an extension that I presume exists, but I'm not able to find it: I want to rate websites in the way photo apps allow you to rate your photos, i.e. assign a number of stars to them.

Like https://mozilla.org ★★★★☆

One use case: I'm comparing products where I don't necessarily find something so good that I can come to conclusion now, so I need a way to save it.

Do you know such an extension or have good ideas how to search it?

Hard to explain why I am asking here, but here goes:

I am a reseller and use different sources. One of our vendor's websites is showing me retail pricing after I login. Our special prices used to (and are supposed) be visible. If you don't log in, no prices are visible. My sales rep asked IT, who said to clear cache and cookies. And again today, he said it is on my end, not theirs.

Of course, that doesn't solve the problem. Do not even know where to begin.

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back. My e-mail provider is asking me if I can provided them with the e-mail sent by firefox, and the received answer, so they could check what is causing it. How could I get those information? Thank you in advance. Best regards, Cyril

Hello, evereone!

My win-application (1)compose an local-html-template, (2)call to open it with a Firefox as a "text editor" for some changes and getting final local-html-documents and (3)needs to save changed local-html-document automatically under application control.

Like model works good with any text-editor like notepad, OpenOffice etc. The application retains control of the text-editor until the text-editor closes (with or without saving document).

However, in the case of the Firefox, the application loses control of the Firefox as soon as the page is opened. And the application does not have information about the shutdown of the Firefox.

The question is: Is there an Firefox-option that allows you to keep control of the application over the Firefox during open Firefox or tab-session?

Thank you so much for any hint, Denis Lopatin

2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

Hi,

When I visit https://messages.google.com/web/authentication with Firefox's history setting set to "never remember history", a blank white screen loads. The following custom settings allow for the site to function as expected: Always use private browsing mode unchecked Remember browsing and download history unchecked Remember search and form history unchecked Clear history when Firefox closes checked with all of the settings for this option as checked

However, when the following Firefox history setting is changed the site becomes nonfunctional: Always use private browsing mode checked

I am a security conscious user who would prefer to have Firefox never remember my history at all times. I want to be able to use the Firefox Desktop browser to utilize Messages by Google's web client. I followed all of the instructions from a similar post on the Firefox forums, https://support.mozilla.org/gl/questions/1257862 , and I isolated the history setting as the source of error to my problem. It would be helpful to all parties (Firefox users, Google Messages, and Mozilla Firefox) if we determine that this is a Google Messages' web client issue or a Firefox Browser issue.

When using my computer today Firefox began not working, I would open it though clicking or running as admin, and it would open then Immediately crash, I've attempted to delete the profile files to force it to create a new one, I've attempted to use backups to see if it would fix, I've refreshed my Firefox account using another pc logged into my account in Firefox. Ive attempted to use the "firefox.exe -P" command to force the profile to open but that instantly closes like the browser, and at this point im out of ideas on what it could be. Any suggestions or solutions?

Hi,

My Firefox sync data for a specific addon is messed up. I believe the temporary containers addon made Multi Account Containers addon to sync an insane amount of containers, maxing up the sync storage. Now whenever I click to sync MAC, it downloads thousands of 'tmp' containers. It refuses to sync ever again, hence no matter how many times I fix it locally, if it ever syncs again, it downloads the thousands 'tmp' containers again. How can I delete the sync data for good?
