Trying to open Firefox in Windows 10 is suddenly only showing a completely white screen (no title bar, closing X, etc) and can only be closed by right clicking on the start bar icon and selecting "Close Program"

Have tried everything to fix the problem so decided that I would have to use the Control Panel and completely remove/uninstall the program and then re-download and install new (was able to save the bookmarks in html format from the "c" drive.

When selecting the Uninstall option in the Control Panel, rather than uninstalling as with any other program, a dialogue box appears offering to repair/reinstall the program, but on clicking the accept option another dialogue box appears stating that Firefox must be closed first --- but it is closed and also proved to be closed through the Task Manager section.

The Firefox version is 100.0.2

How can I completely uninstall Firefox when no option will allow this to happen. I have even tried via the "CMD" command.

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated as I have been working on t his problem for three days without any success.

I just bought a new laptop and installed the firefox browser on it. I was trying to log into my account for Elder Scrolls online so I could download the game onto my new machine, but the sign in window would blink and a little white box in the lower left would briefly read "javascript;"

I have no trouble logging on to my account from the site on my older computer, which presumably does not (yet) have the same version of firefox as the newer machine. I was able to log in to the ESO site from my new computer via chrome, so at least I can download the game.

But I'm puzzled as to why Firefox is suddenly incompatible with this site when it never has been before to my knowledge.

Hi, for me the most intuitive behavior for creating new tabs is to insert after current when using the keyboard shortcut, and inserting at the end when clicking the plus sign at the end of the row. I'm making the switch from Chrome and the Open New Tab Here extension enables this distinction. Curious if there's an existing solution, or would an additional config setting be required?

When I restart my computer, I am logged out of all websites although I did not select settings such as "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed". This only happens with reboots and not on Suspend.

I saw two similar posts but the options look like they changed name since then: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1319622 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1289909

I tried to apply the solutions linked there, to no avail.

This behaviour only happens on my Garuda Linux and not on Pop-os. Thus I am not sure here is the right place to ask this question.

Another strange bug which may be related is the following: if I zoom in a page (say set it at 120 percents) then go to another tab and then come back to the page I zoomed in, the zoom is reset to 100 percents.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

The image below are the details of my google account activity taken out from Google. The ip addresses in red I have hidden as they are my real IP. The rest of the IP's are not mine, and with a quick iplookup it directs to Sverdlovskaya oblast' in Russia. Now I dont think I used a russian vpn but there is a possibility I made an error. But what really strikes me here is the Firefox versions. At both the points 1 and 2, marked in blue. there is a change in version, in fact a downgrade from 100.0 to 96.0. How is this possible? I cant seem to find an explanation. And then it jumps back up to 100.0. I also another timestamp where it downgraded to 96.0, and then came back to 100.0 . I'm really worried about the possibility of a hacker on my computer. If someone can find an answer to this it would mean a lot!

Seems like after installing the latest update Firefox will not allow Amazon to function or display properly after signing in to Amazon. I can sign in using any other browser with no issue. When I sign in on Firefox the screen goes greyed out with no functionality capable. Nothing can be selected and in the background the display won't load correctly.

As of two to three days ago (ca 20/05/22) when navigating to a website (regardless of whether it has been previously visited or not) a message appears stating "PK not found (e1)". I have to click it in order to view the website. Sometimes the message also has a checkbox stating "Allow notifications like this from www.example.com to take you to their tab". I am using the latest FFox 100.0.2 and am fairly sure the problem started after the update before the last one (the last one was this morning 22/05/22).

no ryme or reason that i have found. not a continuous issue, works normal 3 hours, next minute boom takes off immediately to bottom, if i reverse direction action will stop, then i drag bar back upward where it took off. I have replaced batteries in mouse thinking low voltage, not this issue, on-screen cursor will stop/n start or to me acts like too many other background apps running using all bandwidth or ram = low batt voltage =replace batt problem solved. scrolling issue does seem to happen more often in overnight hours, hard to say definitively, MS is no help, after reading 9 pg. of community scrolling issues mine is diff. no issues of randomly, this has been happening for awhile 2yrs maybe more. its the random part that confuses me, i gone threw all mouse settings on/off n firefox, windows, HP, no fix, no error, very odd, i have changed wireless mouses, i dont think i've tried a corded one, after this i will, just gotta find it. HP laptop; Gear Head MPT3200RED mouse;HDMI cord to 42" Sanyo LED TV; ANKER USB w/4 xtra slots; I never touch laptop lid is closed all time, multiple screen switch on. Its very annoying only one indention roll of wheel, one line selected in win settings, mouse receiver plugged into laptop which is approximately 6 ft. away max. there will be days works perfectly normal, n then this evening started again, probly been week maybe, i'm gonna start keeping track of every factor i can think off date, time, website, tabs active, extension s on/active eg. just now tubi going threw my list which is very long page, 6 dvd picture lines down boom takes off just caught it around line 20 outta 150 lines maybe, heres thot, internet access threw verizon hotspot using tether hi speed cable connected to Galaxy S9, if web page not fully loaded thats when action starts, once it starts doesnt matter then random part kicks in, i can restart cpu, or disconnect S9 for minute , sometimes that helps, but not always. oh. i also use onscreen keyboard to type...suks...this Q has taken over hour to type as i click one letter at a time to spell words, my hand n index finger cramping. any thots you can think of wud be most appreciated , i'll do my best at documenting incidents , thnx vic
