When I send tabs from my laptop to my phone, it always says "Tab from [other name]'s Firefox on LAPTOP", and I would like to change this name but I cannot figure out how to, as my Firefox shows my actual name.

So for the second time this month my bookmarks in my toolbar have disappeared. I was signed into my Firefox account both times they went missing. I tired to restore from backup...... nothing. I made sure that the tool bar was enabled.... nothing. I'm so frustrated, as I am in full-time school with three days left in my term and all my textbooks and course sites are GONE!! I don't understand why this keeps happening.

Help!

I am using Windows10, Version 20H2 (OS Build 19042.928) with all available patches installed as of 04/14/2021, and am using Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) as the default browser. I have suddenly begun to get the subject error message (Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.) in Firefox, whenever I try to open an email web link from within Thunderbird. Until a few days ago, the email web link always opened up in a new Firefox browser tab.

If I change the default browser to something else, the email web link opens in a new tab in that browser.

I have tried every solution that has been recommended in this support forum to no avail. The error pops up even when Firefox has been started in safe mode. I have created new profiles to no avail. I have even gone so far as to totally uninstall Firefox, then manually rename all of the Firefox directories in my user profile and then install a clean version of Firefox. So far, I have not been able to get rid of the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I truly hope somebody can give me some help. I am struggling to understand why my website page containers go nuts on Firefox. I tried so much, I payed a good developer who told me the issue was over, but it is still there. I'm trying everything but my project is being a failure due to very nasty WP Theme issues, like this one. I had to spend my time fixing the Theme and my project completely past its deadline. Maybe I'm going to be fired, without fox.

I clearly cannot add site credentials for anybody, but maybe some developer knows what could be of help.

It seems that the issue has something to do with page Container and Flex attribute. The website is a Wordpress site and the page is built with WPBakery Visual Editor. All updated, no customizations, pages should work easy... As you can see the page title is ok, but then inside the main page container, the Visual Editor rows (which have display = flex) behave as if they had no width. Despite that, changing the flex attribute to display = block targeting FF specifically through Css, it doesn't seem to work either. It's not something simple just as a Row option inside the Visual Editor.

Please see attachments. Many pages behave like that. My questions: - is there a possibility to speak with Firefox assistance and get a clue? - did any developer from community, experience something similar before? How did you manage to solve it? - Firefox, why are you behaving like that with an old supporter?

Thank you to anybody spending his time to help.

Hello,

I am wondering it this is possible - I have a Windows 10 laptop that needs to be upgraded to V202H and I am told that the upgrade will probably delete all of my current programs and settings - including my Firefox install and all bookmarks. To help recover from that, I wanted to know if it would be possible to set up an alternate Firefox in a not often used local account on my Windows 7 laptop and then sync the two so that after the upgrade, I can download Firefox again onto the Win 10 laptop and then sync it back so that I can get all of my bookmarks and settings for FF back onto the Win 10 laptop.

I don't want to sync it with the Firefox that I use in my regular Win 7 user account since that has a separate set of bookmarks and settings that I wouldn't want to change. I just wanted a way to "hold" all of the Win 10 Firefox stuff and "reinstall" it, and had thought that sync might be a way to do that.

If that won't work, is there a way to transfer the entire FF profile over to a new install on that laptop once it is upgraded?

Thanks for any help! Much appreciated!

Somewhat recently, when editing text in any text field in Firefox (87.0 64 bit), I noticed the arrow keys don't repeat when held down. Other keys do just fine, but the arrow keys, when held down, move one position, there's a very slight delay, and it moves one more position and then stops; no auto-repeating. I've restarted Firefox without addons and that didn't help. I've also toggled the Auto-scrolling and smooth scrolling options too.

This makes editing long text fields a real pain. I don't see this problem in any PC-based apps and arrows keys do repeat OK in Chrome and Edge. It appears to be a Firefox issue.

Any ideas? Many thanks!!!!!

Hi Firefox guys, I've recently created a windows domain (2019 servers only, clients and dc) and deployed firefox 87 On all computers.. Now I need to make sure firefox uses the best practice ciphers only.

    • Is there a way of customizing such security setting, across the network? maybe using GPO**?

(I am having a hard time trying to find relevant info, no luck yet)

Thanks in advance :)

I have noticed a recently developing event in Firefox. When scrolling through some pages such as LinkedIn or Facebook, my screen will suddenly go completely white. It seems to freeze for a second or two, then comes back. This has only been happening for about the past two or three weeks, so since about 1 April 2021 for time reference. My About Firefox shows I am running 87.0 (64-bit) and it is up to date. I completely uninstalled - including the deletion of the Mozilla folders per info on the web - then reinstalled. This did not correct the issue. I also run Chrome and do not experience this issue when using it.

whenever i boot up my computer, firefox automatically starts atleast 9 tasks in background that end up eating half of my ram, and one of them eats an entirety of my processor. Whenever i check my task manager(i use windows 10), it shows that one particular task is taking 100% of my cpu. I have to manually stop the task or it ends up slowing down my laptop. I already have the latest version of firefox and i am having this problem for 2-3 months. What do i do?
