Why, starting with Firefox 46.0, is my profile not recognized anymore under Mac OS 10.11 if it has symlinks in it (e.g. places.sqlite is a symlink to a file)?

Dear All,

After upgrading to Firefox 46.0 from Firefox 45.0.2 under Mac OS 10.11, my profile is not recognized anymore (that is, all history is empty, I can't restore the last session, and so on). This is due to the fact that some of the files in my profile are actually symbolic links to files in another directory. E.g., places.sqlite is a symbolic link to ../../../../some/other/dir/places.sqlite.

Indeed, if I create a new profile and copy the files of the old one into the new one, *but* taking care not to create symbolic links (e.g. I copy the destination of the symlink places.sqlite into the new profile and not the link itself), and start Firefox 46.0 with that new profile, I get back all my information (history and so on).

Was this observed by anybody else? I feel like reporting this behaviour as a bug.

Thanks!

Firefox locked up while working on Ancestry.com. The first time it was incredibly sluggish and I closed it and restarted and it was fine for a while. Then again later it started bogging down again. This time it locked up. I couldn't restart the computer because it said Firefox was still open. Finally caused it to force quit and restarted my computer. Upon trying to open Firefox I started getting all the messages about having crashed, reporting it, etc. It also asked if I wanted to refresh or use in Safe Mode. I told it to refresh. It finally told me that I had no profile and would not open. I used and app cleaner and totally removed Firefox. Now I try reinstalling it, and won't even allow me to reinstall. I get to the point where I drag the Firefox logo onto the application folder. It acts like it's going to move Firefox to the applications folder but then bounces back incomplete. I see the drive on my desktop. Double click and it just reopens the window for me to drag the logo to applications. I simply cannot reinstall Firefox now.

Firefox Crashes on Mac After Display Sleep

Running Firefox 46.0.1 on Mac OS X El Capitan version 10.11.5 (15F34). I use Firefox on my [Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015] MacBook Pro in clamshell mode (built-in screen clos… (read more)

Running Firefox 46.0.1 on Mac OS X El Capitan version 10.11.5 (15F34).

I use Firefox on my [Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015] MacBook Pro in clamshell mode (built-in screen closed), with two external displays attached.

When the displays are put to sleep without the computer suspending, I routinely find that Firefox has crashed when the displays are later woken up.

The crashes all appear to be CoreVideo related:

bp-0c7dbe16-27d1-4858-a778-741502160519

bp-e1871650-c6af-4737-9295-dd96a2160428

Is there anything I can try doing to alleviate this frustrating issue?

After i updated Firefox on my iMac, i can't visit certain websites anymore. I get this error message that my tab just crashes (see uploaded screenshot). It happens for example with these websites: https://mhasalmere.nl/, http://www.devreugdehoeve.nl/, https://dijanneriezebos.nl/. I can visit other websites like https://brainstorm.nl/, https://google.com/, https://www.wehkamp.nl/, etc.

I've tried several possible solutions from these pages: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-connecting-websites-after-updating https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can

But none of those worked.

Hope you guys/girls can help out. Thanks in advance!

I have a wayward employee who spends far too much time on Facebook and far to little time on her job. I am having an official hearing with her tomorrow and need to be able to print her entire browsing history. There doesn't appear to be a way to do this without taking a a hundred screenshots. Please help. Platform: OS X 10.10.5

Thank you Regards William
