Weird problem: 'Search in page' (CTRL+F) orks fine on most pages but is not working on one particular page

The page search facility (Ctrl+F) works fine for most pages, but doesn't work on one particular page.

The page in question happens to be my home page and is one that I created via Macromedia Dreamweaver. It is my web portal containing numerous links (to all the sites I usually access).

I press Ctrl+F and the search box appears at bottom of screen, as usual. I enter a word in the search box, click the up and down arrows, but it doesn't find any matches, even though that word definitely exists on the page (multiple times). (The Highlight All, Match Case, Whole Words options are not selected). If I enable "Highlight All", nothing is highlighted.

This problem has surfaced in the last month or so. I suspect it may have crept in with a recent Firefox update, as this wasn't a problem in the past. My setup: Desktop PC, Win 10 (64bit), Firefox is 82.0 (64-bit) -the current version, and I'm using the Default Theme.

PS: I opened the same page with Microsoft Edge and the Page Search works fine there. .... but Firefox is my preferred browser, so I need to get to the bottom of this problem.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve this weird problem?

I have chosen to delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed. However I want to make certain exceptions. That normally works fine.

However that are certain sites that are listed in the "Managing Data"-list that are not proceeded with a "https://www...", a typical example is "google.com".

I have not been able to add such sites to the exceptions.

If I just write "google.com" in "Address of website", and choose Allow, the system automatically adds a "https://www.../ in front so the exceptions list looks like . . https://www. google.com . and the cookies listed as google.com are deleted when I close Firefox.

How can I add such sites to the exceptions?

Yesterday I updated Firefox to version 82 and now it won't start up, it seems to immediately crash. There is no error report dialog box. This is on Windows 10 with the latest patches. I tried restarting the computer, installing Firefox 82 32-bit and 64-bit versions, uninstall + reinstall, and safe mode, but none of these work. (This is on a corporate laptop so I have a limited ability to change internal system settings.) The Windows error from the event log is:

Faulting application name: firefox.exe, version: 82.0.0.7592, time stamp: 0x5f8738dd Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.17763.1432, time stamp: 0x80224f6f Exception code: 0xc0000409 Fault offset: 0x00000000000a4740 Faulting process id: 0x2998 Faulting application start time: 0x01d6a816d74b6186 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: 5ed88218-3f48-47be-8c6c-aa5af98c902b Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:

I installed Firefox 81 and that works fine, but it constantly tries to updated and every time I restart it crashes again. It also seems like I can't access my saved logins/passwords in this older Firefox version because it's using a different profile. I'm trying to avoid updating Firefox on my other Windows 10 computer in case it fails in the same way.

Please let me know if you need any more information. Thank you.

How do I contact Mozilla Firefox to ask if I'm able to access to my Firefox profile on their cloud server?

Windows 10 would not update so I contacted Microsoft Support and a technician spent two days trying to various methods to get the updates installed on my computer. After several failed attempts it was determined a Windows "reset" was needed. The reset stated it would uninstall apps but save user data. However, it appears the reset uninstalled and wiped my profile off the computer.

I've already asked a previous question using the Mozilla Firefox support section and verified the profile is in fact gone. No backups are available to rollback using Firefox and the backup profiles in the "Windows.old" and "Windows.old(1)" both contain saved profiles from after the reset.

It sounds like my last option is contacting Mozilla directly to verify my account information and see if they can access my profile on their cloud server?

So how does someone do that? Thanks

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?

This identical message is has been sent to Webroot support.

There are several websites which I visit on a daily basis both at home and work. At home and work I regularly go to Amazon and Google. At home I go to Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, and others. I use Firefox at home and work. Webroot Internet Security Plus v9.0.29.52 is being used at home and a corporate version of Webroot is being used at work. Tonight I started the home computer up and found that Amazon required login credentials. I COPIED the login information from the Firefox "Saved Logins..." screen to log into Amazon. Instagram, et al. seemed to access fine. I performed a complete Webroot scan of my computer and one "threat" was discovered, but no information about this "threat" could be found. I then just went back to Webroot to get the version number for this complaint and it doesn't even recognize the fact that I performed a manual scan an hour ago. It thinks the last scan was 22 hours ago and it only took one second when in fact the LAST scan took over six minutes!

In order to author this complaint, I had to restart Firefox. Currently Amazon is the only website that has retained login information. All others - Google, Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr AGAIN require logins! AGAIN, I can go to the saved logins within Firefox, COPY the credential information and PASTE it into the appropriate fields in the appropriate website and I'm logged back in...for now.

PLEASE explain to me how this information is continually being wiped clean and if Webroot isn't doing it, then what is, since Webroot is telling me my system is clean.

Thank you.
