I am running Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit), Win XP PRO SP3 on several computers and only my desktop has this problem.

Youtube videos embedded in other pages do not work and only blank space is displayed but if I go to Youtube the videos play correctly. This only happens in one computer. In other computers running same Firefox 52.9.0 (32-bit), Win XP PRO SP3 this problem does not happen.

I guess it might be some configuration problem.

Hi, I signed for a master password in Firefox. When the window appears to ask me to insert it, I do but it doesn't work. Then I try to reset it with this link: chrome://pippki/content/resetpassword.xul into but it doesn't work either as nothing appears after hitting enter. I want to get rid of this annoying pop up window as I'm sure I'm entering the right password but it's always denied. Thank you very much!

I have post this questions a week ago but there is no response of my questions. I re-post it and hope someone could help to resolve the problem. The firefox v.65 crash , usually after 3o mins, when I have the new brought photoshop elements 2019 program running in the background. After crashed I try to restore the tab. However, firefox crash again right after restart and restore the tab. If I keep trying to restore the tab. The firefox has no response and freeze. A error message come out " video driver failed to restart ....... Sometime the computer get into blue screen and die. i find that the problem also happen with Microsoft Edge browser too. I google the possible issue of the crash and get some information regarding the crash. It may be cause by the photoshop element face detection feature use too much memory to run the program or the program has memory leak problem that cause firefox crash.

I did check my computer RAM memory and PC window system files. they did not show any error. I refresh firefox and reinstall my video driver. However, it make no change of the crash situation. The firefox crash and Blue screen die issues only happen if I run my photoshop element and premier 2019 program at the same time. Adobe support said that it was not photoshop element program problem for the firefox crash.

I want to find out what is the root problem of the crash and how to fix it. I also want to know any known issue firefox crash assoicated with photoshop elements program.

Since the update to version 66, my themes won't stay enabled, no matter which one I choose. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the themes, (restarting firefox in between), redownloading and installing firefox itself...all to no avail. It reverts to the default theme when it finishes loading, no matter what I do. I can re-enable it manually...and, here's the odd part, it shows while firefox is loading! Anytime firefox is started, this happens, and it doesn't seem to matter what them I select. When I close firefox, it disables itself.

Dose anyone know why the buttons for the Close, Minimize and Restore Down commands have disappeared from the top right corner of my Firefox window? Although, hovering over the area will still show the names of them. I am using it on a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Thanks in advance for any help.

As the Firefox window is loading in, the boxes and their names are visible for a second, and then they disappear. This issue showed up after I installed an update for Firefox. There was no problem before that, and I have this problem only in the Firefox window. All other windows display the boxes and their names properly.

On many pages (commercial), when I click a link to look at another page, clicking the "Go Back One Page" button results in the original page scrolling down a varying amount.

For example, I visit CNN.com. I then select an article I want to read. When reading is complete I press the "Back" button, which returns me to the original page, but also scrolls that original page, sometimes just a few lines, but also sometimes to the very bottom of the page.

This only happens on the newest (66.0) version of Firefox upgraded yesterday. It does not happen with other browsers. It does happen with Firefox started in safe mode. I also checked the carat (^) scroll in "Options" and this was not selected.

This also happens whether I use the Firefox Page Back Button, or the "Back" button on my mouse.

Thanks Doc

My Addons are working okay, however when I look at the about:addons page the list only shows blank spaces where addons should be, only a blue highlight shows if I click on each addon.

This is the same for my Plugins and Themes.

I have tried deleting some files in my profile as suggested by others on here with similar problems but none work.

I'm on Linux, and updated to Firefox 66 yesterday. I was looking forward to the new feature that disallows websites auto-playing videos. But I found that it's not the case. For example, https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-03-19/how-an-extra-man-in-cockpit-saved-a-737-max-that-later-crashed still starts playing the video automatically. This is just one of the many I've tried so far.

Am I missing any settings? There was none I could find having done a quick search on the preference page.

The home page for fastmail.com lists my four accounts there and acts as the FFox browser's home page on my Mac. After today's FFox update – as has happened in the past – the saved account names and passwords have vanished and I am currently having to login to each account manually. Even after setting them up again, because I have Firefox set to clear the cache when logging out, these Fastmail logins are being deleted. Unlike google.com's efficient generic home page which remembers the several google accounts it holds.

Hello! I'm using Windows 10 (1809) with Mozilla Firefox 66.0.1 on my PC. Since many Firefox versions I have the issue, that Firefox crashed immediately at the first start. The second start and all other subsequent starts works fine, as long I will not log off and log on again. Then Firefox crashes again on the first start (same behavior as mentioned). Here a list what I have done/checked so far: - Firefox Crash Report is not available, no crash information windows appears - Firefox is installed in the current latest version - All Windows 10 Updates are installed - Newest Nvidia Graphics driver is installed - New Firefox-Profile created (same behaviour as with my current profile mentioned above) - New Windows User created (same behaviour as with my current user mentioned above) - Firefox reinstalled, with deletion of the installation directories and profiles - Firefox hardware acceleration disabled - I switched off my Kaspersky Internet Security before the first start

Nothing helped. When I click on the Firefox Icon, a Window opens for a few milliseconds and closes immediately. (No more Firefox processes running in Task Manager). Then I click again on the Firefox icon, and the browser opens perfect and runs stable. After the session I log off/shutdown the PC. When I start the PC again the next day and log in, I have the same issue again.

Does someone has an idea how to solve this issue?

Any recommendations are very welcome! Thanks in advance, Simon

So the issue i'm having is that the login page for google seems to be broken in some way. I have 2 google account. one for college and one for my youtube. my college one works but my youtube one is what seems to break the page. I can try and get it sign in to my youtube account by tell it to forget my other account but then i'm left with the sign in page and a next/login button that clicks and nothing happens. whenever I get the page to accept that the account exist and try and quick select it, it then loads forever and doesn't sign in. If i open the browser in private mode it doesn't have this problem though but I don't want to only use the private browser as I use my history to re-search things a lot. I have tried clearing cache and cookies... I have tried reinstalling firefox... I have tried scanning for viruses and malware... I literally don't know what else to do... I even tried removing my add ons. nothing worked. If anyone else might have some insight on this I look forward to the help. All I know for sure is that it's been about a week since this started.

What has changed in Firefox 66 related to upgrades?

I do upgrades in different ways depending on if it is a minor or major version upgrade. Nothing odd. With major upgrades I: download the install file, take a backup of the profile, run the upgrade, and I don't select the "maintenance service" (advanced install option). With minor upgrades I simply let it install and restart Fx.

This time I went from v. 65.0.2 to 66.0.1, since that minor version change came rather close after Fx 66.

As per above, I cleaned the cache, did a backup of the profile and ran the install file. At first start of Fx I was confronted with the Profile manager asking for a profile. I selected the default one, and had to check the box to always use this profile. (There is only one. Something wrong with profile.ini?)

(I had created another (test) profile many months and versions ago, but it was deleted via the Profile managersince long time ago.)

Why this (starting with Profile manager)? Has never happened after an upgrade.

And now, a minor version upgrade, Fx 66.0.2 arrived. I hadn't got any notifications in Fx yet, but saw it mentioned in news. Decided to upgrade by closing tabs and Fx, cleaning cache, to do some other task, and when I clicked on Fx's icon, to start the browser and do a search for updates, I was confronted with the question if I would like to run the upgrade. It was already there.

So what has changed?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit PC.

Start Firefox and open up 4 tabs with different websites for each tab.

With the 4th tab displaying, close Firefox

Wait until all instances of Firefox in Task Manager have ended

Restart Firefox

The restore previous session loads the 4 tabs but does not display tab 4 being the last tab showing when closed. It displays a blank page and is totally unresponsive. Starting a new tab (5) is also unresponsive. Yet the other 3 tabs work fine.

Steps taken – uninstalled Firefox and deleted existing profile then reinstalled Firefox with a new profile but no change. No add-ons, bookmarks, history or settings changed.

Please help.
