"We're sorry Firefox had a problem and crashed - same fleeting pop-up every time I close down the computer

I use Xubuntu OS and installed Firefox from there many 4 months ago on this my new laptop, from Ubuntu repos. I now do not know what version it was.

About a month ago I noticed that every time I closed down the computer I saw a flashing image of what appeared to be a message from Firefox. It disappeared before I could read what it was about.

I uninstalled Firefox totally yesterday by purging the system, deleting the folders/files in /etc and /usr relating to it. I downloaded it from repos and installed it again However, the flashing image still appears every time I close down.

I decided to video the close down to pause it and see what this message was about. It was as I said in the subject above. I found two crash reports in about:crashes and have submitted them.

Please tell me how to stop this repeating message.

Also, when uninstalling Firefox I saved the logins and passwords but was unable to use the resulting csv to recover them. Is there a better way than manually?

Ages ago, with the separate search bar enabled, Firefox would allow the addition of any "searchable" site to the dropdown options for a search. This option is still available on specific sites, shown by adding a green + to the search icon (see Capture3.png).

At some point, this addition was "overridden" so that this option was available only to specific sites that have enabled the OpenSearch description within a separate xml file (from my best understanding from my best understanding). I'm sure that there is a security reason for this, but given that there are many sites available that don't have this option for whatever reason, including Wolfram Alpha and Dogpile, I used to be able to still add these sites as one-click searches and I would still like to do so.

If the "Add X"/green + is not available, the only option to add new search engines these days appears to be through the "Find more search engines" link under Options which sends the user to Add-Ons site specifically to search for an applicable add-on.

It doesn't seem like I should have to include an entire Add-on to switch search engines, especially since search engines I'd had from previous Firefox versions seem to have carried over just fine. For example, Thesaurus.com and Wolfram Alpha can't be added on my newer, fresh Firefox installations on other PCs, but I've got Thesaurus.com available from my long-standing profile (Capture4.png).

I've found a method to edit the search.json.mozlz4 file and manually add searches, there must be an easier way to accomplish something that seems relatively simple, and do so without a new add-on.

I have Windows 10, version 1903. I recently backed up my Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles to an external drive before replacing the hard drive in my laptop.

After replacing my hard drive with a new one, I restored an earlier image file of my computer in order to put back all my data onto the new drive.

Then I did a Fresh Start, effectively doing a new install of Windows 10 (v.1903).

(As far as I can tell, my old Firefox data was deleted during the Fresh Start reinstall.)

I now did a new install of Firefox onto my computer. After I opened it I synced. Because my favicons were not restored (a generic globe icon shows in their place instead), I'd like to load in my old saved profile and make that my default profile.

The problem: So I tried copying and pasting the saved profile ("bxfz7tby.default" ) back into the new Mozilla Roaming and Local profiles (e.g, into "C:\Users\,username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\", but I can't get Firefox to access them. Instead, it only accesses the new profile it created.

I did an uninstall and tried it again, but all I ended up doing is creating another new profile. Now when I go to About:Profiles (see image), the default-release and default profiles listed don't seem to exist anymore (they aren't loadable, and they can't be found using the filepath noted there), and the actual backup profiles that I copied from my portable drive into Mozilla and that I actually see in File Explorer, doesn't show up as a profile choice.

How can I restore my old backed up profile? And if I do restore it successfully, will that also restore my missing favicons?

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I have used and updated Firefox for years. I am now on v79. And in my prefs.js file (about:config) there is tons of old crap. Things like references to old addons which cannot even be installed any more and were removed during updates, prtiner setup stuff for printers I no longer own, and something that is causing the rendering of chase.com to be messed up and the site unusable in FF.

Is there some reasonable way to clean up the prefs.js? Using about:config does not seem to remove entries, only reset them to default. If I exit FF and edit the file in my text editor, FF doesn't work right when re-started - I have to restore the profile folder from a backup.

There must be some way. Any help/tips?

Thanks

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

For many years, I have had trouble with the rendering of https://www.chase.com/ in my Win10 Firefox install (see attached). This does NOT happen in my wife's install. I have been a user for a long, long time and this has persisted even through the update to 79.0 today. On the same machine, it renders fine in Chrome (see other attached).

As I said, the problem does not happen on my wife's computer and since it works in Chrome on the same computer I know this must be something wrong with my Firefox install. I have tried running with --safe-mode and the problem persists. I have repeatedly cleared site data/cookies and even the entire Firefox cache. The problem persists.

While I suspect there is still something hanging around in my profile that is causing this, I don't know what it is and I am loathe to erase my entire profile and start anew.

Any suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this mystery?

Thanks

Creates AND SENDS multiple copies of drafts

I read with great interest Creates multiple copies of drafts at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280432, and tried both suggestions with absolutely no success.

In addition, my instance of T-bird (ver. 78.0) now has begun *SENDING* the automatic draft saves instead of saving them! One of my recipients received *SEVEN*, slightly different copies of the same e-mail message, complete with typos and attached photos!

Furthermore, I thought it was a bug in the new T-bird version. So, I backed up all my files including my profile, then uninstalled T-bird, rebooted the laptop, then installed an older version of (ver. 68.11.0, as I remember). There was some improvement: The older T-bird didn't send the saved drafts, but it still saved multiple, serial copies.

But wait! There's more! I am running both Win 8.1 and Kubuntu 20.04 LTS on my laptop as dual boots. So, when that last experiment failed so badly, I rebooted to Kubuntu, and ran the Linux version of T-bird (ver. 78.0 as well, I think. But I don't want to reboot right now to double-check.) Same story: Multiple, serial drafts!

But then last night, the Kubuntu version of T-bird began SENDING multiple, serial drafts to the recipient!

And both of the two Windows versions and the Kubuntu version committed the same error whether I used the "Save" button or the keyboard shortcut ( <Ctrl>-S).

So, I am at a complete loss. I have no idea of what to do next. Or where to even continue looking.

Wait! The thought just hit me that I'm using more or less the same profile contents in all three instances. If the problem lies there, what part of my profile would mangle the function of the "Save" command? What do I need to do to fix it? (Without losing all my other profile customizations.)

Thanks in advance.

No more images on certain sites after upgrading to Firefox 79Since the upgrade to Firefox 79, the sites www.2dehands.be and www.markplaats.nl no longer display images with the articles. Is so in the dutch, english, german and french version (so separate installations with different user profiles) and I hear that complaint from multiple users of Firefox (so not only on my computers). Use Vivaldi now for those sites, because it shows the images. Attached a print screen of a Firefox 79 and the same page in Vivaldi so you can see it.

I am having problems while trying to watch YouTube with the Firefox browser. I keep getting as yellow bar at the top of the page when trying to do anything on YouTube. A screenshot of the error is attached. I've asked Mozilla about this before, and I am also trying to get a fix from Dashlane. It concerns the message "a script in the extension Dashlane is causing Firefox to slow down" then it shows Learn more. When I open that if the warning stays long enough to click on it. It recommends changing dom.max_script_run_time. It shows it is set at 10, and will not allow any change as suggested. Then it suggests adding JavaScript toggle on and off. That does not help either. I would thank anybody between Mozilla and Dashlane that can provide a reason for this continued error message and how to fix it. This has been going on for months.

I have a brand spanking new system with Win 10 installed on SSD. I've been using it for about a month and it works great. MS updated edge over night (SURPRISE) and now Firefox has been slowed down considerably. For example. Facebook loads OK, but as I scroll down, the "Like", "Read More" , "Comment" links don't work for a bit. On this site trying to bring focus on this text area is laggy. Not like before update.

They seem to show up after a while, but it seems like every site is somehow s-lo-w-e-d since this 'update'. I re booted and also ran the 'quick fix" option but stuff is still slow.

Of course the update can NOT be rolled back. Do y'all imagine this is intentional or just my imagination?
