Using v. 60.1 64-bit. All attempts to download are borked. No error message, but checking Downloads shos that they all fail (wihout explanation, of course). I have tried EVERY so-called solution for this I've seen on the 'net, and none of them worked.

Help, please.

(Desktop version of FF v60.0.2.)

I used to be able to type a keyword in the address bar and a drop-down list of results from both my bookmarks and browsing history would appear, but no longer. Now, when I try typing in the Address bar, it simply uses auto-complete to guess the URL. No more "drop down" list of suggestions (which was helpful in finding sites I visited by simply typing a keyword.)

I checked my Settings. I've tried checking/unchecking all settings under "Provide search suggestions" on the Search Settings page. Ditto for the options below "Address Bar" on the "Privacy & Security" page.

I discovered if I run FF in its own "Safe Mode", the feature returns, so I tried manually disabling every Extension & Plug-in, but it didn't help.

Can anyone tell me why I can't display link suggestions from my History via the Address bar anymore, and how to get it back? Other than Add-Ons, what else does "safe mode" disable that could be causing this? It used to work fine once upon a time. :(

The site is from a major bank in the UK, so the idea that it is duff is rather far-fetched. It worked fine until I installed Firefox ESR 60.0.2. It has a valid certificate "Verified by: Digicert Inc.". What really irks me is that I DO KNOW BETTER than the blocking software, and some arrogant idiot has set up code that is preventing me from posting it as an exception until you get the Firefox problem fixed. And NO, it is not anything to do with antivirus or malware, as I have not changed any of these things, and have run checks often.

Try testing that website BEFORE you give any kiss-off answer!

And especially, DON'T BLOCK stuff unconditionally: the user should always be allowed to override that.

Firefox just shows a white page, no more tiles and bookmarks. I didn't change the settings. Disabbling addons did not work.

The new update (66.0.3) blocked LASTPASS and also Kaspersky protection. There was no warning and it is a major problem for my 5 computers. I NEED THESE and i'm sure many others do, as well. Unless there is an EASY and QUICK fix i will be forced to abandon firefox and i've been there from the start.

I AM APPALLED that there was no warning about these serious and disabling changes as well as what would be disabled. At least we could contact the software affected and find out if there is a fix before we are just summarily screwed by loss of function.

You may be fixing security concerns, but you have created much more serious security concerns in the process...

On my personal laptop, I have the Multi-Account Containers extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/) running smoothly. I'm currently on a public desktop computer , and I enabled Firefox Sync, which did a good job for passwords, bookmarks, etc, but it didn't sync any of my container info for the Multi-Account Containers add-on. I see the default containers: Personal, Work, Bank, Shopping. On my personal laptop, I have about a dozen containers. What's wrong?

I opened up Firefox today and almost all my bookmarks are missing. I tried restoring, but all the backups are also missing the bookmarks. I tried exporting the bookmarks to HTML. That is not working. There is only one Firefox profile. Running in safe mode did not help.

There is a crash report from April 30, 2018. Version 60.0.1(20180516032328) was installed on May 19, 2018.

I cannot download anything. Clicking any file link produces no results. Same in gmail or anywhere. Right clicking a link does allow "save as" and that works. Destination folder for downloads IS writable and i can directly "save as" there. This broke suddenly tonight (during a browsing session - i was able to download one file but not the next), before this it worked for eons . If i start firefox in safe mode it does work. Another similar issue suggested deleting mimeTypes.rdf in profile folder. I tried that. no joy. Deleting my entire profile is *100% not an option*. I disabled all add-ons (adblock and ghostery) but it did not help.

Hello I have searched this forum already and the best description for this isssue is

"Since quiet some time(~3/4 Year) videos playback on youtube (and twitch) is choppy/stuttering (it looks like the playbock is not in the right order, if A-B-C-D-E-F-G-... is the right order for the frames it looks like A-D-E-B-F-C-G-H-... and then normal again for few seconds, and then again)." from this case https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1195382

And the very example is even shown in this video https://vimeo.com/271932549 captured by another user with same issue from https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1217350#answer-1112431

neither of those were answered anyway. I am bumping this issue as I have the same problem. I already tried to disable all addons, disable webgl, disable or throttle HW acceleration, refresh firefox, even tried to swithc to ESR version but none of these helped. I installed chrome, got the identical/functionally similiar addons and tried to watch youtube/twitch - it was going smooth even after longer period of time. Other players not based on html5 are playing just fine though, it is just that html5 player...and on twitch and yt...

When I try to upload a file (multiple websites), firefox crashes without warning, doesn't open crash reporter, about:crashes reveals, "No crash reports have been submitted."

Starting in safe mode yields the same results.

Everything is fine until I move my mouse into the popup window to select my file for upload.

This only started happening in the last day. This is completely repeating everytime. I've downloaded files from these sites before today using firefox with no problems.

The same website upload works from IE/Edge.

I saw another post about Mozilla maintenance, so I unintalled it and set the option to update in the background to not allow this. Still crashes.

The box to update Firefox "A new Firefox update is available...Download update" is stuck on my main Firefox browser window in the top left corner.. I cannot click on it or close it and it appears on all of my tabs. I could just close the browser but frankly I've got a lot of tabs open and my Firefox settings mean that if I closed the window and reopened them all in a bookmark folder, I'd have to log in to all my sites again. Also I don't know if the same thing wouldn't just happen again.

I don't know if this is Firefox's way of forcing you into submission to update the browser but it is quite frustrating, I shouldn't have to go through such a massive effort just to get rid of an update box that obscures my view. I also don't want to get rid of the box appearing altogether as I like to know when there is an update so I can choose to download it or not.

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks

Last night I let FF update to V61 on my laptop. Now I can't access https://800notes.com/. I use the site to check on the multitude of bogus phone calls I get on my home phone every day. When trying to access the site I get a message about some string of something being too long. My desktop (which I'm now on and still using V60.0.2 accesses the site just fine). I've been on 800 notes thousands of times and know for a fact it's a safe site. When FF blocks me I don't get an option to whilelist it or bypass the block. IE goes straight to the site with no problems. I'm 70 and not a geek so the cryptic messages FF gives me might as well be greek for all the good they do in providing information I can use. Is this something I can fix?
