Firefox keeps crashing, when I boot it up a prompt appears for half a second asking if I'd like to go to safe mode, but the prompt window instantly closes after half a second. I have tried refreshing the app, uninstalling, and reinstalling, and nothing seems to work. The app was working a day before this. How can I get it to work properly again? It is worth noting that I had to ask my parents to allow my computer to use firefox the day before all this happened, but after that, it worked fine. Only now there are crashes every time.

I want to get rid of adblock which I installed as an add on.

It doesnt work very well for my browsing needs and is continually getting in the way with selling pleas.

So how to get rid of it ? I do see that I can get a list in firefox of installed add-ins, so why cant I click on a delete delete button alongside the add-ins that I don't want ?

I just updated to 90.

Suddenly all my tabs no longer show the delete cross. There is a 1 pixel spot that's hard to see.

When I troubleshoot and restart with addons, themes, etc. turned off, they are back. When I try to test each addon, I get no results. All I can think of is the themes are screwing up. I've tried different themes with no results. Can I turn themes off to test this issue?

Any other ideas?

Hi all,

I am doing this online course and all lectures are online videos using Wistia platform. I have recently installed Linux Mint 20.2 and latest version of Firefox but the videos don't work. Page loads fine except the video where only a large grey box shows with no controls. This was also an issue when I was using Linux Mint 18.xx but at least it worked in Opera which I was also using at that time. Now it doesn't work in either Firefox or Opera. is this perhaps an HTML5 issue? Don't think Wistia are able to offer any support and neither is my course provider. Their response was 'this is weird, works fine on our computers'.

thanks in advance for any assistance

Hi, I've been having an issue lately where Mozilla FireFox won't connect at all to anything I try to work on through FireFox. It keeps giving this error to me about Security Issues.

I've read through other asks' about this, and saw that changing my Proxy to "No Proxy" worked for many others. HOWEVER, this has not worked for me at all, I've checked all my proxy settings, and nothing has worked at all. I don't know what is going on.

I cannot open any certificates associated with it, or any of the "Learn More" extension.

Several web pages no longer display properly, sample attached. Tried Firefox Refresh which completed successfully but did not resolve the issue. Notably these same pages display just fine in Safari, a browser not nearly as much to my liking as Firefox. Wanted to send a screenshot of the whole page but size was too large so partial image attached. URL is https://asgca.org/architect/atull/

I had to temporarily make Chrome my default browser, but when I then tried to go back and make firefox my default browser, windows 10 did not list it. (This has happened several times in the past few years, and I have the sneaking suspicion that Microsoft does this on purpose.) Firefox told me to uninstall and reinstall it, which I did, being careful to state that I wanted my settings, passwords, bookmarks, etc. to be saved. However, the reinstallation lost them all. I then imported my bookmarks from Chrome, but they are old ones. How can I get back my settings, etc. in Firefox? Thanks, Peter Ray
