The Add-On feature no longer works. When I click on it in the about:addons address, it just gives a paragraph of what add-ons are and the rest is just a white, blank page. Has been working just fine (several years) until just a couple days ago. I found this out when I had to re-install a couple legacy apps due to a FF foul-up (tried to upgrade even though I refused). I still use FF 55.0.3 because that is the last version that the Tabs Groups will work with. This single feature is far more helpful to me than all the other features of FF combined, so you can see why I want to keep it.

How can I get Add-Ons to actually let me add on again?

(5/9/21) I use Yahoo mail for my newsletter. I place images as well as links and text. Everything was working fine for the last two years, but three days ago the images disappeared on the drafts if I left the draft or refreshed it. It will not even send the images. So I went to Safari and everything works fine. I rather use Firefox because Safari sucks. But this also means I can't send images on any kind of email either. I'm using a Mac laptop. Does anyone else have this problem? If it isn't fixed, I will have to use Safari or Google browsers from now on. I don't like Google either because they're Deepstate. Thank you!

I use three computers but one is my main computer. Is there a way to make these bookmarks my MAIN bookmarks to sync. It is annoying when I sync and my main computer bookmarks get all messed up because the other computers aren't current. I want the two other computers to sync to my main computer and not vice versa. Is there a way to set up the computers sync this way? Thank you in advance.

Hello, I'm trying to add a secondary email address to my Firefox account but each time I try I get the following message: "Secondary email must be different than your account email" I'm not typing the same main email address, I'm actually trying to type another one. The only possible reason that comes to my mind is that the address I want to add is already used as a secondary address for another Firefox account (namely, the one I use at work). I don't know if it makes sense, but it's the only possible situation this address is to be already found. Any ideas why this happens and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have a question. Is it possible add a new feature to Firefox Sync that will allow user to synchronize only selected passwords? For example in Setting->Synchronize a new checkbox will appear on the list of elements to synchronize or it'll appear as a "subcheckbox" after user clicks "logins and passwords". After that user will be able to click a checkbox for every password separately.

Firefox is having trouble loading certain pages, including with Facebook messenger but also a bunch of other sites. It'll just stop loading despite that the address is still in the toolbar and the screen is still white. If I refresh a few times, maybe go to a different part of the same website and navigate from there, I do always manage to get there, but not sure what the problem is. This problem is new this week, and I think came from either switching internet providers earlier this week or trying out "Hopin" the next day, a video conferencing platform that my computer/internet totally couldn't handle. (I didn't notice the problems before trying Hopin but perhaps I didn't notice that first day.)

I have cleared my cache and cookies, and have also tried (following the advice of another answer on the same issue) renaming the Firefox program folder and installing Firefox again. I'm on Windows 10, 64-bit HP laptop. My extensions are uBlock Origin, Privacy Badger, Malwarebytes, Honey, Facebook Container, and Colour -- but all of these I had long before this issue started.

Who if anyone can help me with Firefox deleting my info over and over again?

Firefox installs updates without my permission and then deletes everything - logins, cookies, bookmarks, view settings, all history.

Now this has happened 3 times in less than a month. And it seems to happen randomly. It is likely related to a new update. I get alerts for updates and this time when the alert pop up showed up I declined by clicking "not now". I had also changed my preferences to only install updates with my permission. That is ignored by Firefox. Instead this morning I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I returned every this was gone the "this is embarrassing" screen was there but the only restore choice was to "search Marquis".

There is some type of conflict going on and I can't figure it out. I am using a MacBook running 10.12.6 and I have used Firefox for years. The most recent change was to a different internet provider. But the problem with Firefox deleting my info started before that. Something seems to crash within Firefox and it may automatically restart and then install an new update that deletes everything. That is just my guess. I don't really understand a lot of this and don't want to spend hours learning about browsers. The last time it happened I spent a long time trying to follow the suggestions for getting my history and everything else back but none of that worked. So I've given up on retrieving anything and apparently even having a history because it's always going to be randomly delete by Firefox.

Maybe Firefox is not the right browser for me anymore? What are the requirements?

Thanks for any suggestions as to what might be causing this.
