I updated to version 99.0.1 but it keeps on going back to 98.0.2. Things I had tried:

  • Uninstall and reinstall Firefox
  • Refresh in about:support
  • Use a new profile

I think it is happening daily around the same time. Suddenly my pages in Firefox will stop loading. Then I need to close and reopen it. And then it will prompt me to start with a new profile because I am using an older version. On check, my Firefox had been reverted to version 98.0.2. Then I have to update and then only I can change back the profile.

I am switching jobs and want to sync my Firefox history from old work computer to new. Both run Windows. I changed the primary email associated with my account from the old work account to a new email. No problem. I synced the new email to my iphone no problem. Now im trying to download and sync Firefox to my new laptop. Running Windows and Im trapped in a crazy loop. I login with correct password to the new email and it asks for the authorization code and when I enter that, Firefox switches to the OLD email and asks for that password. I am not sure I have that password correct because i set the account up four years ago. Regardless, i cant sync my new laptop. But I was able to sync it on my iphone so it CAN be done with the email addy and password I am confident about. Please help.

I lost my arrows on my scrollbar again after an update early last month. I tried adding lines to the gtk.css config files with no success unlike I've been successful doing in the past. It appears they are gone forever unless I can find another way to get them back. I noticed that the scrollbar arrows are gone on only Firefox and Thunderbird. As mentioned, this has happened in the past after some updates but in the past I was able to edit the gtk.css files in both gtk-2.0 and gtk-3.0 to get them back. Is there anything else I can try. I'm using the latest version of Ubuntu (Pop OS to be specific) and the arrows to the scrollbars disappeared around April 2nd for both Firefox and Thunderbird. I didn't notice any other applications where the arrows to the scrollbars disappeared. Is there something else I can try and a way to prevent this from happening in the future. This seems to be a common problem that happens every time there is an update.

Why is firefox automatically downloading strange files I've never seen before? (MEUIVFJ-.htm and 3tHMwYhc) They look a little untrustworthy. My download dropdown suddenly showed me that one had been downloaded, and then a while later the other one was downloaded. Are these actual Mozilla files? Or are they some kind of scam/trojan/spyware? I just realized that two were downloaded last month as well.

So Firefox did an auto-update a few days ago, and when I opened the browser EVERYTHING was gone. Passwords, bookmarks, etc.

I've managed to get the old bookmarks moved over, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the old passwords back. The old data is in a folder on my desktop, do I just copy and paste the login and key 4 files from that folder to the new folder?

Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, I'm a pleb and this is the first time I've experienced this. :(
