When I'm in some public places (hotels, airports, coffee shops, etc) sometimes when I connect to the wifi Firefox doesn't show the login in page. So I've got full wifi signal but can't access the internet.

Note: At the same time the internet is fully working with that same wifi on my mobile phone.

Thank you...

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

It works on most videos but there are several that won't download properly. Whenever I try it says "0 bytes" and the video won't play with Media Player, Realplayer, or any other program. Does anyone know how to fix this or another Firefox addon for me to try? I also tried downloading the videos with Realplayer's download too but that won't work either.

I've checked and disabled add-ons to see if these were blocking somehow, but no result. It worked fine before, so my suspicion is something changed in FF78? Thanks!

I recently copied my Old Firefox profile to another folder and refreshed my Firefox Dev Edition browser. After refreshing, I copied all of the content of my old Firefox profile to the new default profile and then started the browser. Upon starting it, the browser was working with all of my previous add-ons. But whenever I close the browser and open it again, the icons of the add-ons at the overflow menu are not showing though there is space for the add-ons. Whenever I click at the add-ons, the error that 'Access to file was denied' - `The file at moz-extension://b408b31d-945f-43cb-881e-b1f4071942b6/index.html is not readable` shows up. I tried it with creating other profile folders and then copying my old profile data but it still always happens.

Any help?

I have a number of Add-ons, and the icons on some of them take up a lot of room. So the navigation bar is crammed full. I added the Add-on bar that shows up at the bottom of the screen. However, I haven't figured out how to get the Add-on icons moved to the bar at the bottom. I'm sure it's something very simple but I haven't found the magic combination to do that yet.

I would appreciate any help/suggestions you can give me. Thanks for your help.

I don't know if it's relevant but I'm using two Toshiba laptops running Windows 7 and the other is Windows 10. Both are 64-bit. And it's is Firefox 42.0.

The "about:addons" page will not load, more specifically the page layout loads however it is stuck at "Loading [moving wheel]". The other pages such as "Appearance" and "Plugins" will load, only the "Get Add-ons" tab will not. If I click "Check for Updates" (located in the [cog] drop down menu in top right) it instantly returns no updates available.

I have tried setting the theme to Default and loading Firefox in Safe Mode with addons disabled. This has not fixed the problem.

I have attempted to attach a screenshot however it is not uploading, here is a mirror: http://imgur.com/EkyFc1X Similarly, the troubleshooting plugin installed but did nothing; I used the manual copy text method however it appears to provide no usable information.

Over the years I have frequently had problems with the Latest BBC News Add-on after a Firefox update (hence my previous questions on the same topic), but after this morning's latest update I just don't know what to do. The BBC icon that was previously on the add-on bar in the lower right-hand corner of the screen has disappeared. The add-on bar is visible, and the BBC icon has not ended up somewhere else, such us on the customization menu or on the tools menu. This add-on is 'signed', and so I cannot understand why the icon is no longer present on the screen. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the add-on several times, but to no avail. Until late last night, it was working perfectly. Can someone please help me?

I'm making automatic installer for special Firefox extensions. I have read couple of articles about that, but none of the described methods are not helped. What I tried to do:

- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\browser\extensions
- Placed .xpi file and unpacked unpacked extension directory in %FF_DIR%\extensions
- Placed unpacked extension directory in another directory and added record in registry (`HKLM\Software\Mozilla\Firefox\extensions`, key is extension id and value is full path to unpacked extension)

In all ways name of unpacked extension directory was:

- Random name
- ID from install.rdf #1 (`{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}` for example)
- ID from install.rdf #2 (`prism@developer.mozilla.org` for example)  

And, as i said, all methods don't give me expectable result. Firefox don't show extensions in list and don't show any notification. How can i solve it? What actual method using in current version of FF? Target browser is Firefox 41, system - Windows 7 x64 Thanks!

I had a system crash, probably with Firefox opened.

After restarting PC and starting Firefox, most of the addons I have had lost all of their settings and were reset to default - Tampermonkey lost all the scripts I had installed, uBlock lost all settings and rules, etc. Weirdly some extensions kept portions of their settings, like TreeTabs saved tree structure despite also getting reset to default.

Additionally Firefox also got its own settings reset to default, while the tabs from my session and bookmarks were saved.

Is there any way to recover addon and Firefox settings, is there any backup of them?
