Hello. All of a sudden i have been getting prompts just before completing gmail sign is asking if i want to switch to html or default.I chose default,tried to sign in again,and got this legacy version of gmail with messages being listed in html format which is brutal.What caused this ? how do i get it back to the way its always been? Whats going on with this,and why is this even happening? Its also saying i used a tablet or mobile device to sign in twice,and i dont ever do that. How can i get it back to the way its always been? Have tried googling all of this but it happens on its own,and sometimes it doesn,t after i sign out of the html ,and reboot,but its unpredictable,and its like stuff has been altered. Thankyou.

Hello, I am a bit concerned, as Firefox never before acted this way. Has this been reported? 0. Few weeks ago computer froze, after restart, bookmarks that I had made new had disappeared and old ones appeared, as if firefox reversed to previous saved setting from hour before freezing of computer.

Now, the main ones that have been happening during last week: 1. Firefox randomly downloaded (twice during last week) some random file with random letters, for example " H3jO5Ni4m.htm". It was always one file, that was a ".htm" file, and it had 0 bites. I uploaded the file to virustotal and it brought me to this: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/e3b0c44298fc1c149afbf4c8996fb92427ae41e4649b934ca495991b7852b855/detection

I then googled about this specific problem with Firefox downloading a 0 byte .htm file, and it has been happening to people for last 6 months, not many cases, but some,still. Peoples comments implied that this is harmless and that it is a bug of Firefox.

2. Firefox today,about half an hour ago logged me out of most websites, not all, but most. Firefox never ever behaved this way and it happens only to Firefox, not any other browser that I own.

During last week I scanned my computer in both normal and safe mode with: Eset Online Scanner (a one time useantivirus program), Avast, Roguekiller, Malwarebytes, Mbar (Malwarebytes anti malware), and never found anything. I consider these programs most reliable, and have been using them for years.

Is it a bug of this specific version of Firefox please? I have version 105.0.1 (64-bit) and problem 1 and 2 happened since then I think.

Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Webpages with divs and buttons that hover a consistent space of the screen like taskbars and Reddit's "back to top" button flicker white and jitter around when I try to scroll and I would like to find a quick fix if possible. I am a new user and I've only so far had to touch config settings to fix on hover UI with Twitter. Everything else is default settings and I keep getting forwarded to old bug reports and github pages for web developers when I'm trying to fix it from the user side on multiple common pages like Tumblr and StackOverflow.

Hi developers, I wanted to send compressed requests (i.e raw JSON to Gzip) from firefox browser to API server which can understand both compressed and un-compressed requests. For same, I am setting up content-encoding header as gzip, will the browser automatically compress the raw requests just by adding the content-encoding request header or do I need to manually compress the requests using some code snippet ?

Hello,

This might be pretty niche, but I want to customize my bookmarks and save them to distribute across multiple virtual machines. These VMs run on non-networked hardware devices, that are accessed through non-networked local machines. The idea is to make the bookmarks how I need, so that they can be put on a dev stack and copied to new systems when imaged.

I can't use sync, due to not having internet connections locally or on the VMs. And I can't backup/restore configurations made locally because the changes have to be made through a domain controller (that's a VM, and also doesn't have Firefox installed) which will push configurations to all other VMs, including the local machine.

I've tried customizing through GPO, editing the registry, editing bookmarks.html, creating my own .json file; nothing seems to stick. I've also learned that renaming or deleting places.sqlite doesn't really help because it gets regenerated when Firefox opens a new window. Even tried a DB Browser for places.sqlite, in hopes to edit the file, which didn't help. Unsure where to go next, ideas or assistance would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Under Windows 10 Home, Firefox x64 opens and closes immediately as a limited user. As the administrator this does NOT happen.

I uninstalled Firefox, deleted the temp files and re-installed a fresh copy of Firefox. The same issue exists. If I try to start in safe mode as a limited user, Firefox does NOT open.

Firefox worked without issue yesterday. Has a Windows Update caused this issue? The computer is new with limited programs installed. It can't be the firewall as running Firefox as administrator has NO issues.

What do you suggest?

Hello, ever since we moved endpoints from Firefox ESR 91.13 to 102.3, it has become impossible to play any media with Firefox.

No video will play in youtube, for instance (it just loads endlessly as if it would start, but it doesn't).

Can't use radio websites either. Anything with a "play" button (video or sound) does nothing.

This has been tested with a clean profile, a clean install, after allowing autoplay in the settings.

Is there any info on what exactly changed between ESR 91 and 102 that might explain this ? There has been no system change, If I reinstall 91 instead it works again as usual.

No issues anywhere else on the endpoints (Edge, Windows), this is on Windows 10 if it makes any difference.

Tanks for any help on this.

I'm trying to download Firefox, but it simply refuses to open. I've only gotten it to open twice, when I downloaded it from the Microsoft Store (which still doesn't work unless I've absolutely cleared my computer of any trace of the Firefox I download from there), but when I tried to open it back up again after turning my laptop off/putting it to sleep, it didn't open.

  I install it from this website otherwise.  I'm on Windows 10 with a laptop, and I've already checked that my storage isn't the issue (I've had it bug apps out on me one too many times).  I've uninstalled everything my computer would tell me exists in relation to Firefox before reinstalling it, but it still doesn't open.
  And when I say it doesn't open, I don't mean it loads slowly or doesn't pull any website up.  I mean for half a second, I see the outline of a window (sometimes windowed, sometimes not, usually with the minimize, windowed, and x on it but not 100% of the time), occasionally a black inside, before it's gone.  I check my running apps and it's not there.  I've tried running it as Admin, making it my default browser, trying to find if there's a 'fix' option for it (as far as I'm tracking, there isn't), running compatibility troubleshooting, restarting my computer, refreshing when it asks me to try, reinstalling when that doesn't work, and properly more I'm forgetting about.
  I really like Firefox, genuinely, I do, I used to use it on an old computer, but I can't open it and therefore can't use it.
  When I opened it off the Microsoft Store, I did sync my Chrome information to it, but I believe I deleted that (I may be mistaken, though), and even if that did pose a problem it still didn't work when I originally tried to download it off of here.  Sorry for the long(?) question, I'm just trying to cover every detail I can think to cover.
  (Warning, I'm a little bad with following detailed instructions, so if any help could be simplified if possible that would help me a lot, thank you for any help anyone can provide!)

I am getting a stack of these errors preventing me from browsing to secure websites which includes google.com. Luckily my Chrome Browser and Edge Browser work fine. This is just another nail in the coffin for me to close the door on this browser which is just getting more and more unreliable.

For now, I have migrated to Chrome to allow me to go about my business of without Firefox telling me Google.com and many other secure sites are unsafe to browse!

Please bring back the override and accept the risk. I would rather have a warning and transfer risk to me rather than have a draconian rule telling me to use a different browser to resolve the issue. For now, you have forced my choice.

I cannot believe I am the only User to experience this issue. I do not want to delete all my cookies etc as I want to be selective in what I delete but again, this option has been taken away from me as well.

Looking forward to a solution.

Thanks.

I have been using sync from day one: best thing ever regarding my productivity. AFAIK, credentials get encrypted before sent to the FF cloud, using information derived from my password.

Short version: what happens when I change the Firefox account password?

Long version: I'm thinking of replacing my current password, with a very long one. If I do so, will there a re-upload of my data take place? Will my credentials on the cloud become harder to crack (assume that the new password is longer and more complex).

I have Firefox set to re-open with any tabs; that were open when it was closed; restored. Six months ago I had a crash and Firefox correctly re-opened with the three Tabs that I had open when I had the crash. Over time, and many sessions, I closed the original three and used many others. However every week or so, and totally at random, it re-opens the original three. I have found it impossible to get rid of them. Any suggestions please?
