1. Synced my Firefox sync account

2. Disconnected my Firefox sync account

3. Reinstalled windows

4. Installed Firefox 56 (I was using 63 but i only had 56 installer)

5. Updated it to 65.0.1.

6. Connected my Firefox sync account


Problem -

1. All bookmarks didn't sync.

I created bookmark HTML backups and it were of 6mb and my latest backup is 171mb.

There are 2980 differences in 173mb backup and Backup taken after again connecting to FirefoxSync. I used WinMerge.

2. HTML backups also contain fav-icons [and Firefox Sync only syncs links not fav-icons.]

When browser is used fav-icons are loaded but after sync fav-icons are loaded as pages are loaded , so there are no fav-icons and html backup size is less than the last backup.

3. Could be related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1251781

4. There could be something wrong with Firefox's Exporting. Imported the same 173mb HTML to chrome and Firefox then exported HTML backups. Firefox Export was of 61.1Mb Chrome Export was of 12.9Mb

Hallo Leute Ab einem Tag x haben sich meine Userdaten und Passwörter nicht mehr automatisch eingetragen. Wenn ich Firefox zurücksetzen, geht für 10 - 30 min wieder. Danach passiert wieder etwas automatisch und ich muss wieder alles händisch eintragen. Ich habe schon alles deinstalliert neu installiert jedoch hat das nichts geholfen. Irgendwo muss noch eine Datei sein die dies verhindert und bei einer Bereinigung dann später geladen wird. Weis jemand wo?!? Danke Gruß Manuel

Hi

All other borowsers load youtube but not firefox it hangs on loading youtube on red like above at quarter fill and the buffering ring keeps en-circling like a shark. It has occured since update to Firefox version 65.0.2 on 64bit. Please fix this and kindly get back to me. I checked my router, dns, ethernet adapter etc. and all my pc's have this issue since this version of firefox came out. I am throughly fed up. Please get back to me asap. I am not a noob and have exhausted all possible troubleshooting steps. Refreshed firefox, reinstalled it after removing it with proper scrubbing software, checked the about:config everything I can possibly think of and even scoured the forums. I just spent 4 hours of my life trying to fix this and even did a previous windows backup restore to no avail.

My e-mail works fine for about 7 to 10 days, then I can't send e-mail although I can receive it. It seems to occur when I attempt to open Firefox and I see a box that says It is necessary to close Firefox or cancel. No matter which one I chose, it doesn't help. If I shut my computer down for a day, it works works when I re-boot. I can receive e-mail as I mentioned but I can't sent it during this period. When I send an e-mail, the message I receive is as follows:

I run debian 9.8, and rather than using the distro version of firefox, I run the mozilla version. This works just fine, but when firefox detects that it needs updating, the only way I know to do it is to log into Xwindows using the root account and do it from there. I don't want a *user* account to own the browser, but I can't seem to find a way to update without Xwindows. There are some old links about using .MAR files, but the most recent one is a couple of years old, and due to appearances, i suspect - although i didn't confirm it by following the links - that only older versions, not the current one, can be loaded that way. Enough people have looked at this that it would appear worth putting in a flat warning that this cannot be done, so that people don't waste their time looking for something that doesn't exist. Help!

So I had bookmarks and extensions in my browser, but wasn't using Sync.

After getting a new laptop, I wanted to activate Sync. So I created an account, connected sync with that account, made sure that everything was checked to sync, I then synced.

After that, on my laptop, I installed Firefox, and then added my account.

I saw that none of my bookmarks were synced, same things with my extensions.

On my desktop, I went ahead and saved my bookmarks, deleted them all, and then re-imported the bookmarks. They then were able to successfully sync, on the desktop to the laptop.

But I cannot do the same thing with extensions.

Hi,

I am experiencing some troubles with Firefox Add-on webpages since, as I can estimate, version 60 onwards.

- Firefox Add-on webpages (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/) look wrong and I cannot download or install any extension.

- Also the Firefox Add-on tab (about:addons) looks weird and updating extensions fails.

- Trying to download an extension directly (such, for instance, https://addons.cdn.mozilla.net/user-media/addons/1347/clippings-6.1.3.1-fx.xpi?filehash=sha256%3A07b13f5ecfb2e4c960980faa7c8e4ef4a2ac7f9c458bf083c7bcb72efb674edf) renders a "Unable to connect" error.

- I can see Firefox Add-on pages correctly in Chrome but not in Vivaldi and Safari.


I have unsuccessfully tried the following suggested solutions:

- Refresh the page.

- Clear cookies and cache.

- Re-start Firefox with add-ons disabled.

- Refresh (reset) Firefox.

- Create a new profile.

- Disable hardware (acceleration) performance.

- Disable anti-virus.

- Disable firewall.


I have also tried to follow the suggestions in the following links without any success:

- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-look-wrong-or-appear-differently

- https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-images-not-show

When I load the Firefox Add-ons main page the console outputs:


Content Security Policy: Directive ‘child-src’ has been deprecated. Please use directive ‘worker-src’ to control workers, or directive ‘frame-src’ to control frames respectively.

Content Security Policy: Couldn't process unknown directive 'prefetch-src'

None of the "sha512" hashes in the integrity attribute match the content of the subresource.


So I think that there may be a problem with CSP or with CORS. I have managed to disable CORS but does not do the trick. I can find a way of disable CSP.


I am running:

Name: Firefox Version: 65.0.1 Build ID: 20190211233335 Update Channel: release User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.13; rv:65.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/65.0 OS: Darwin 17.7.0

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for your attention and time.

I noticed that firefox stays in memory after I close it. In fact, If I open and close firefox 10 times, ten processes are shown in memory, each consuming around 100Mb.

I'm using Windows 7 in my corporate computer and I have been using Firefox 65.0.1 x64. I've tried to use it in safe mode (no add-ons) and problem persisted. I uninstalled it, deleted all Mozilla data in AppData and ProgramData and reinstalled it fresh. The problem persisted.

Then I installed the 32-bit version of Firefox and the problem is no more. Is it a bug that has to be fixed or some setting that shoudn't be enabled?

Thank you.

Firefox sent a message that said there was an update waiting. I allowed it to update, but the program completely changed. Also started running Utube files. I cannot stop these files - they appear nowhere. I have muted my speakers for the time being. I am also getting images instead of tabs. I am sure that Firefox would have advised me of an upgrade that went from text to images. This is why I believe firefox has been hijacked. Contact me on my email address, as I am shutting down firefox when I finish this message.

Firefox Quantum 65.0; Windows 10 Pro; Grammarly, OneTab, RES, uBlock Origin

since about a week ago firefox always saves the open tabs and opens them after restarting the browser. It happens automatically and I can't stop firefox from doing so. I want every tab to be closed when I shut down firefox and they shouldn't automatically be reopened.

The box for Session Restore is unchecked and in about:config browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes is set to zero and firefox still automatically restores the sessions

Hello, I have a new install of Firefox 65 on Xubuntu 18.04. Very frustratingly, I cannot select any text in the address bar, for instance to type a new web address. This applies to both:

-- trying to click or double-click; nothing happens; --also, dragging the mouse to select text has no effect.

I CAN place the mouse at the end of the text, backspace and erase text, and retype a new address, but this is laborious.

I have tried restarting in safe mode: the problem still exists in safe mode.

I tried installing a different browser to see if that one would have the same problems: it did not.

Any ideas? This is clearly not normal behavior and makes firefox very difficult to use. Any help is much appreciated!

I have had problems with Firefox Sync for a while.

I often reinstall operating systems I use. After each reinstall, I try to sync to my account. I get denied. The email gets returned.

I have bypassed this problem a number of times. I am not sure about the exact solution, but either waiting for 24 hours since last attempt to login or fiddling with Firefox Sync settings through my phone which is already logged in seemed to have helped.

Fiddling with phone settings does not work anymore. It may have never worked. I have not waited 24 hours since last attempt to login as well, so that could be the fix I am looking for. However, the main problem I have, is that I cannot bypass it in any other way. I am able to login to Firefox Screenshots for example with my account, but I cannot sign in to my Firefox account itself. It is not a good user experience.

I understand that this might be used for my own sake, to protect my account from potential intruders...however, I am very dissatisfied with not being able to sign it to my account for over couple of days because of such restrictions.

I do not think anyone can do anything about this, it will probably require redesigning existing safety measures just to deal with this obscure problem. I will wait for 24 hours and will update this post after I get the result. Maybe I can help someone else who is on the same boat as I am. I could not see similar problem on the internet other than a few, of which did not portray the problem in a way that I found relatable.

But maybe there is another way unbeknownst to me.

Either way, thank you for reading. I hope you have a nice day.

Instead I got a charge on my credit card from lstfl.com for $33.+ dollars saying it enrolled me in a sex site. That is NOT what I imagined. And it came under Mozilla/Firefox name. Can you go after this site as it is operating under your name and logo. Thank you
