hello, lately i have problems with any kind of VR content with firefox. A-Painter doesnt work and i cant play any VR video

looking a bit around on the internet and trying to change VR related settings in about:config gives me 3 unsatisfying results (trying to play a VR video) : - either nothing happens, the video starts playing normaly in 2d mode and when i press the VR icon the videos pauses but doesnt switch to Vr mode - it starts steamVR for no reasons (which doing the same action didnt start steamvr before, instead the video would just play in VR) but then nothing more happens, juts steamvr is open but the video dont play - i get an error message saying i need a webVr compatible browser

i have tried tweaking nearly every VR releated setting in about:config to a point where i dont remember what all the original configs where but i cant simply reset my prefs.js file as this would mess up every other tweaks i have made in my config. trying to play the same video works just fine in MS edge

no hardware changes have been made to my pc and i didnt install any new addon to firefox. i hadnt used my VR headset for some weeks so i dont know exactly since which firefox update the issue started. Occulus software is up to date as my other drivers (i didnt update any driver lately neither) are actually up to date or the same as they where when everything worked. i have also tried with a fresh FF nightly install without succes (in nightly i didnt change anything in about:config)

How do I disable "recent bookmarks" when I go to the bookmarks.

Also How do I get bookmarks to appear as they did prior to the update. It used to be 1 button on the right side of the address bar would open a menu that had all of my bookmarks and book folders. Now theres an option button, where when I select "bookmarks" and then "bookmark current tabs", "search bookmarks", and "hide bookmarks toolbar" as well the dreaded "recent bookmarks" that show a random selection of among all of my bookmarks from random folders.

If I want a remembrance of how my bookmarks used to be, I have to make sure the menu bar is visible and select bookmarks from there.

This was the original thread <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363425#answer-1471931>

In short, to summarize the original issue, one day after clearing my 'recent history' 100% once, gmail.com never ever became autofilled again. I can't get it to show up, no matter what.

I even refreshed firefox, still didn't help, sadly. The only thing left is to uninstall FF but that's a headache I don't want to do. and there's no guarantee that it would work.

Tried disabling all my extensions except for the most obviously fine ones like momentum. Didn't seem to help. <https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1176553> This guy had the EXACT same problem I had. So I followed through these suggestions. Didn't help.

1. Does anyone know what the right keywords for this would be if I want to google others who have similar issues? Looks like I can only just hope other people have the solution. But I've googled things like firefox not suggesting history in omnibox search. Hasn't come up with anything that worked yet.

After creating a new Windows User account and switching back to original account, I lost ALL of my Quick Access Bookmarks! Then I did a Bookmark Restore using the most recent saved Bookmark file and I lost around 64,050 bookmarks!!! Now, the latest saved Bookmark file lists 5 items. This is a ridiculous and a very serious issue!!!

What is going on? I spend a lot of time getting important Bookmarks for research, and etc. How can I get all of my Bookmarks back? Apparently, I cannot get them all back. See attached file.

Hello, Recently, I changed from Chrome to FireFox. I have a website where I have to join to meetings with my client. When I click on the scheduled meeting, it opens zoom launch meeting page and launches meetings usually (with chrome) I mean the zoom launch meeting (as attached in image). In FireFox, I don't find the meeting getting launched. The launch meeting page comes up, asks me if it can use zoom app. I give Yes and then the thing happens is it opens the Zoom app. It does not launch the meeting. Any suggestion you think that will help, please post it as a reply.

Thank you in advance!!

I have been using FF primarily for email accounts recently, but want to go back to using it for general browsing as well. This would mean the ESR version for general surfing, and another version for my email accounts---both versions running 24/7 on my laptop, except for updates.

Does beta still install over the release version? I tried googling this but the results never answered my question---evidently "over" is a very common word in English. :)

Also, does the Beta channel update only some days after FDE? Or does the Beta update channel get the new beta at the same time as the Aurora channel?

I have been a happy Firefox and Thunderbird used for many years, but the constant unnecessary tweaking and fiddling with the GUI has begun to spoil my user experience. Each update seemed to change something that was working fine and didn't need changing... the last straw was making the on-screen font so small that it was nearly impossible to read.

It took me quite a while to find a way to change the font size and appearance back to something usable. That was when I decided to disable automatic updates. Now, every time I open FF or TB I get a nag screen and this is beyond annoying. There does not appear to be any way to stop this happening outside of doing complicated stuff in the registry that I am not prepared to do.

So basically, I am looking for a recommendation on the best alternative browser and mail app that I can use when I delete FF and TB. Chrome seems to work OK for a browser and although I don't like the GUI, Gmail is probably the logical choice as I use Gmail addresses. I don't need apps that work on phones as I work on a PC, so a simple clear GUI is more important to me than all kinds of clever features that I will never use :)

In my settings I have enabled that FF asks me where to save files whenever I click on a download or choose 'save as'. This works... until it doesn't. For no reason and at random times Firefox stops asking me where I want to save downloads. It also doesn't download them automatically. It basically ignores any commands to 'save as' or download files like PDFs. The only thing that fixes the problem is restarting FF.

I'm on the latest macOS with the latest FF version, but this has also occurred on previous versions of FF.

Any suggestions?

Beginning yesterday after installing a set of fresh MacOS updates, Firefox is repeatedly hanging on my iMac. My computer CPU spins up and Activity Monitor tells me that the process trustd is having a field day, up to 99% CPU usage. Then Firefox stops everything and in the middle of something basic like opening a search engine page or scrolling on an already-open page, I get a spinning rainbow ball of death and have to Force Quit from the taskbar several times before it closes.

Here is what I have tried to resolve:

  • Deleting and reinstalling
  • Troubleshooting mode
  • Downgrading to version 93.0
  • Stopping and restarting the trustd process from both Activity Monitor and from Terminal
  • Full deletion of all Firefox files from command line and installing 96.0.2.

The same problem keeps recurring. For reference, it's on a 2020 iMac running macOS Catalina (10.15.7), i9/16GB. My other machines are not affected. I have not yet upgraded to Big Sur or Monterrey on advice of workplace sysadmin.

Is anyone else seeing this issue with trustd? I am not seeing this problem with other software, just Firefox, but I can't figure out when Firefox calls trustd and what it asks it to do when it does.

Advice warmly welcome.

I installed Firefox at work and set my personal email address as secondary to my business address. Well, I liked Firefox so much that I decided to use it at work and at home - and I removed my personal email from my business account.

Unfortunately Firefox is still recognizing my personal email as the secondary address for my business account and I am completely incapable of making a new account. My bookmarks and saved passwords are all different between home and work. I NEED two individual accounts, just like how I was using my browsers with Chrome.

How can I convince Firefox that my personal email is free and available so that I can make a new account with it??

Thank you for your help!

Here are the facts of my case, now closed as duplicate.

I just remembered that heretofore, Firefox has automatically disabled Add Ons that were amiss. Rather than action DrMoishe Pippik's bifurcation stopgap myself, can't I do nothing — and wait a week or two — if someone more technologically skillful deduces the astray Add On, and Firefox disables it?
