For well over a year, I have had this problem: Many times when I selected a bookmark, nothing happens. It does not go to the bookmarked site. I have tried the following things: 1. Start FF in safe mode. 2. changed OS from Windows 7 to Windows 10. 3. Made sure my OS and browser were up to date. 4. Tried different Antivirus programs.

Can anyone help me with this?

Thank you so much!

Since today I see a blank page when I open firefox. Everything was working ok before. I tried to purge firefox with all data and install again but the problem persists. I also tried to use firefox 85 and 86 from the website rather than from the apt-get package but this also didn't help. The same happens in safe-mode. I can't even access preferences, passwords, and other built-in pages. Please see the screenshot attached. I'm on Ubuntu 18.04.

When I close firefox it runs in the background and I have to kill the process manually.

Not having access to passwords is by far the most frustrating part in it.

Hello, There is one website that I visit regularly that doesn't show images anymore in Firefox. On the top left of the page I see a torn sheet of paper icon. The images are visible in Safari. I have tried suggestions on the FF help page but that doesn't help.

Is it caused by the website owners or a problem on my side?

3 February 2021

I use a toolbar. Sorry, I'm old fashioned. When I install a new linux system, the first thing I do is change firefox to show the toolbar. There is a 'Bookmarks' item on the toolbar. When you click it, it gives you a menu of several options, including 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D'.

Until recently, clicking on that option opened a popup that allowed you to select a sub-folder to put the bookmark in. That was extremely useful because a flat list gets very long very quickly. You could of course just click on save bookmark in the popup and it gets added to the flat list, or, as I do, you could first select a sub-folder.

Now, clicking 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D' results in the bookmark immediately being saved to the flat list and a little alert momentarily pops up declaring 'saved to library'. Apparently 'library' is the same as 'other bookmarks'. How very clear (sarcasm). In addition to not knowing where the bookmark actually is, I now have to manually move it to the desired sub-folder with several other clicks. How convenient (sarcasm).

I want the old behavior back. How do I get it?

By the way, I am very old fashioned. I don't register with websites, even firefox. I used an email blackhole to sign up. I will come back here periodically (once a day) to see if there are any useful answers or questions asking for clarification. I've bookmarked this page, so it should be easy. When I'm done, I'll disappear forever, thank you very much.

There is a website that I use for work a lot and I have it on my bookmarks for easy access. The url for this website is https://_________________.com/html5 When I start typing the first 3 letters after the "https://" part, the address bar auto fills but it only does so up to ".com" and omits the "/html5" part so the website does not load correctly if I hit enter. I then have to use more keystrokes to get the complete url which is super annoying since I have to use this website multiple times every day. Is there a way to force firefox to auto fill the whole url without omitting the last part ?

Thank you for your help.

Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.

Hello there!

I was browsing some website but suddenly a popup appeared that I need to update Firefox that was up to date. (That was my second time seeing the same site, so I was careful not to click on yes.)

I thought it was a click bait or virus, so I didn't click on it and I wasn't even able to exit that tab. That tab even opened the 'color picker' application and started running a code by itself.

I could see an extension install by itself. I panicked and shut down my computer.

After a while when I started the computer again, I couldn't find any new extension installed but I remember it was there. ;-;

A few days later (today), all of my websites started glitching! I don't know what to do. T_T

Also if there's an only option which is to refresh, I actually don't want to lose my Firefox data so I can't do that. Is there any other way to get rid of that thing?

To put some screenshots, I tried to use another web browser which I could clear the data of. But it didn't work in that.

This is the link which mentioned some 'Update.FF' (I am not sure if it's the correct one, but please do not click on it.)

**If you do click on it, it'll just refresh the page or something but the previous link which I saw, doesn't open**

https://www-ssl.com/app/?ref=6&web=zp&co=IN&dd=ee67f683db1226519417d5525d328dfa&pa=melichrous-badger&cid=zredca1df561f511eb9d0d0a59b83f3f116c17d68f2b074c768485b8929596500e0532856c6a18cb5fc6&country=IN

External monitor show different color in Firefox.

Hello,

I have some serious problem with firefox. I spent all day to find the solution but i falied.

I was trying all the configurations from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1171999

gfx.color_management.mode: 0, 1, 2 gfx.color_management.enablev4: ture, false gfx.color_management.rendering_intent; -1, 0, 1, 3

Each one of them combined with other. All failed.

What is the problem. I have a new iMac with external monitor (apple thunderbolt display).

One the iMac screen everything is ok but on the external monitor, color in firefox is totally different than other browsers and different than iMac.

Here is the example of code i use for test. It's not image. Just clear CSS code: https://www.dropbox.com/s/znnuxq1g75169g8/css.png?dl=0

Here is the screenshot from iMac All 3 browsers have the same color: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3nrkw6ljzwo32kn/imac.png?dl=0

And here on external monitor firefox show different color. https://www.dropbox.com/s/c4vl4tlxmech8o8/external.png?dl=0

Firefox is my main browser and i don't want to change it just becasue the color is not working properly. But because i'm the designer i need to have almost the same color on my both screens in browser.

Overall both monitors are ok. The problem only exist in Firefox. All other apps are ok. Figma or Photoshop work fine, both screens have the same color. But firefox not.

I'm using also Firefox Developer Edition and there is the same problem.

Are there any more options i can check before i will change browser?

Thanks, Przemek

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.
