Is Mozilla ever going to fix the Firefox Find problem: So often nothing is there!

You search for a word using Control+F like any other program. It's highlighted on the page if it's there. Or you would think so. But no. Why does Firefox so often say it found a word when you can clearly see it's not there on the page? Nothing is highlighted. It even gives you the number of results on the Find bar. Some may be there but others are not. This has been like this for years. Why?

Dashlane stopped auto filling in Firefox. Copy & paste doubles the info. Win10 64bit Pro. The app works in Chrome. It worked fine in Firefox until last week. I cleared all data & cookies, still doesn't work. The problem occurs on both https & http websites. I tried all the fixes on the Dashlane support site, but they don't have any effect in Firefox.

After accidentally closing Thunderbird, two message I was working on were still open.

I went to Windows Start and clicked on Thunderbird and it opened but neither of my two email accounts were shown. I was able to get to Support by clicking on Help in one of the messages.

I tried "Set Up Your Existing Email Address" and received the message "Configuration found in Mozilla ISP database." When I clicked on "Done", the message "Incoming server already exists."

Available configurations IMAP Keep your folders and emails synced on your server Incoming IMAP I SSL/TLS imap.gmail.com

Outgoing SMTP I SSL/TLS smtp.gmail.com @ Username waynestiefvater@gmail.com

When I click on "Account Setting", a screen appears that shows the accounts for both of my email addresses, and the settings appear to be as I remember them. Everything seems to be fine but Thunderbird simply won't load with my two email accounts.

A week or so ago I had to delete all of the Cookies on my computer to get another program to work. I don't know if the Cookies possibly needed for Thunderbird to load were deleted and that might be the problem.

It shouldn't be the cause of the problems I'm having now, but the Profile for Thunderbird is at the root of the C: directory: C:\0-FFox\Profiles. That was done to shorten the length of the file addresses.

Many thanks! I really appreciate your help! I use email a lot every day and I hope the fix will be simple!

Hello,

Recently I realized that the vast majority of my passwords were no longer present in the Firefox password manager. When looking at my profile's logins.json file, they are all present, yet only the last two are visible in the password manager itself. I've tried refreshing Firefox, restarting my PC, and creating a new profile and copying over both the logins.json and key4 files to it, yet the issue remains. Is there a way to decrypt the logins.json file using both it and the key4 file so that I could import into Firefox as a CSV? Thanks in advance.

As written in the title, context menu is disabling the "Copy" item.

Fortunately, CTRL-C works. I found a workaround by disabling the Google Translate add-on, which I reported right away. Later I realized, it happens the same way with another add-on, too.

I see many people complaining about this in the past, not sure whether those have been fixed or this issue is still there.

Thanks for any help!

My system recently slowed considerably. When I checked what was happening, I found there were up to 14 Firefox 'windows' showing in my Task Manager, and collectively these 'windows' were consuming over 25% of the computer memory (650+MB) even with Firefox just opened as the initial browser screen; no addresses etc had yet to be added. I've followed many of the troubleshooting suggestions, but to no avail. I have not reset the browser as yet as I need to understand the root of the problem

Thanks in advance for your assistance Duncan Hodder

I just had to reinstall Firefox because It keeps trying to take over Firefox. I had to delete Cert9.db., I found in my Profile.

How would I solve this problem permanently without having to go back and troubleshoot over and over again?
