When I try to backup my Firefox profile to a remote hard drive using SyncBackFree, i get an error message that access to the logins.json file is denied. SyncBackFree is trying to overwrite the previously stored version with the current version. No other file in the Firefox profile is similarly affected. How do I fix this problem?

Hello. I recently noticed an issue with Firefox. When I open it the first time, no Tab is showing and neither is Minimize, Maximize and Close on the top right. If I close the browser and reopen it, those 4 things that were missing, come back. I noticed a little bit later, that if I keep closing and reopening it, those 4 things keep disappearing the 1st,3rd,5th,7th,9th time I open the browser after closing it. So, as you see it's like a cycle. Other than this issue I really like Firefox. I've been using Firefox for years.

When wanting to play a game it is said that the AdBlocker should be put off first. My steps are go to the main menu, add-ons and watch the list of my personal add-ons. I have no Adblocker in my settings in add-ons. Secondly there are many Ad Blockers and it is not said which one.

So where is this question coming from, from Mozilla itself? Anyway how do I make the Adblocker switched off then when there is no button shown at all? Might there be a failure in the provider of the game?

My Firefox for MAC 78.4.0esr (64-bit) Browser Window shakes horizontally, uncontrollably, when I click on links in websites. This began just before the last update, and happens more frequently than not, forcing me to abandon the application because I can't close the shaking window. I can't see a specific pattern to which links will cause this to happen, but if I restart Firefox and try the same link, it will repeat the error. My device is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009), OSX El Capitan V 10.11.6, 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB. This error does not occur in Safari. Firefox is my preferred browser.

I used to be that if you clicked a link and "Opened in a New Tab" that this child tab would appear to the right of all existing tabs.

In the later versions of FF, these child tabs are inserted directly after the parent tab that created them.

This may make logic sense to some people but, maybe because I'm dyslexic, position is critical and all my existing tabs beyond this child have just been moved up one place, which I find very confusing.

I often Open a New Tab for temporary tangents, so I don't lose my place in an existing page, but this means that my primary tabs are tromboning right and left as I open/close.

Is there a parameter that I can change in Config to set the behaviour back to adding new tabs to the end of the list?

Hi, Since yesterday Firefox won't play any live video streams on any website. An HTML5 error message shows up.

I've tried upgrading Firefox, disabling Add ons, starting in safe mode, completely uninstalling and starting from scratch and installing and deleting Adobe flash as a last resort.

I made sure everything was up to date on my laptop and they play no problem on other browsers. I just can't work out what's wrong with Firefox.

When I have multiple pages open and navigate off the page and work on something else using another program, When I hove over the Firefox icon in my Windows 10 taskbar it shows multiple pages in the fly out menu. What I'd rather have is simply a return to all the full screen tabs. The issue is intermittent, due to my newness to Firefox. Is there some way to change this?

I was gifted an Amazon Fire Tablet to use for an upcoming hospital/rehab stay. I use Firefox on my desktop and Android phone and want to use it on my tablet, but the Amazon store doesn't have the app. Not sure I trust the Amazon Silk browser, but I may have no choice. I am not a tech savvy person! I don't know the difference between a bit, byte, or buttercup. If there is a way to install and use Firefox on my tablet, and sync with other devices, I would like to do so. Please explain how to do it as though you are talking to a 6 year old (who probably knows more about this stuff than I do, anyway). Thanks. rennylloyd
