I've been using Sync for a long time, my account password was saved within the browser, it just worked.

After update to version 81, following things happened: - all of the settings set in the options as well as about:config were re-set to defaults, - I could not log into Firefox account with a password working perfectly until now, - when tried 'Forgot password procedure' I've received "email address returned" error.

Is there anything I can do other than creating new account?

Thanks

I had the "Restore previous session" checked at the Startup, so every time I closed and reopened Firefox my previous tabs used to appear. However, this last time I closed Firefox, when I reopened I saw Firefox is installing update message (81.0.2), then none of the previous tabs came back.

Startup still has the same 'restore previuos session' checked.

"Recently closed tabs" is grayed out.

How do I get my tabs back?

Thanks.

I rebooted my computer after it crashed, due to what appeared to be a hard drive error (at first when I restarted the computer I got the message, "Default Boot Device Missing or Boot Failed)". Once I managed to get the PC started again I opened Firefox and found out that all of my saved passwords were gone as well as nearly all of my browsing history, which goes back over a year. Strangely enough, not everything is deleted - there are still several webpages that I visited in the past that still show up in the browser history, especially from the last few months. Not only that, but when I scroll through list of web results, webpages that I previously visited are still highlighted in purple, even though many of them do not show up in the much reduced browser history. Does this mean that the remainder of the browsing history is still somewhere? The Firefox profile is the same one as before the crash.

Thank you!

Dear community,

I would like to bring up a topic that is DRIVING ME CRAZY. I am developer and frequently access my own services on unsecured http servers for testing. Spin up a new docker container, test it, tear it down. No SSL required, no time to mess with encryption.

But if you type in https just a single time for your http server, you are f*#&ed. Sorry for the wording, but this is how it is. You think "OH NO, WHAT DID I DO? NOT AGAIN!!!" Because it is just impossible to access the service with http in the future, Firefox has it locked to SSL (Domain and Port). But of course there is no SSL so it will NEVER work.

Latest example: JetBrains TeamCity. They have a simple Docker container I want to access with Firefox. I spin it up, connect with Firefox with http and it immediately tells me "Secure Connection Failed". WHAT? WHY? I typed http. Why secure? Why can't I simply connect? Using curl on CLI just gives me a beautiful HTML response.

I understand that for the majority of users SSL is a good thing. But shouldn't there at least be an OPTION to disable all this enforced SSL usage? My beloved Firefox is my everyday productivity killer. It makes me sad.

When I try to access content from channel 4, it says that I am not in the UK. https://www.channel4.com/programmes/first-dates/on-demand/55507-004 All add-ons disabled. Same issue.

I am connected to a vpn and it is located in the UK. See the attached images.

I know that the vpn is fine because this works flawlessly in the google garbage browser. Actually, any browser at all. Just firefox remains blocked.

I tried with geo.enabled set to true and false as well.

I have a couple of problems

1) I just did a security firefox security scan an was informed that in 2017 there was a breach of my "My Heritage Account" and that passwords and Email addresses were compromised. I would like more info on this report : just what passwords and Email addresses were compromised? Was it just My Heritage data or would it be everything on my computer.


2) My Firefox software won't open my Outlook emails: Edge and Google Chrome work fine. What is the fix for this problem?

Am trying to take an online assessment for a job. I’m getting - Error: Firefox can not see the cpu or ram on this PC. I’m running win 10 64bit and have the latest version of Firefox installed. I’ve turned off thumbprints, added the site as a trusted site and pretty much killed all security for this site. How can I let FF see the cpu/ram?

I am positive about Firefox is the most secure browser and have evidence of it. Nevertheless the following site could traspass the Firefox barriers: https://www.eldestapeweb.com/ I am concerned on the survival of Free World and consecuently of Free Software. I guess the above mentioned site belongs to a parapolitical official organization. I consider that for it's job obtained tech help from some powerful international group. The average user of Firefox is unprevented of this issue. I am not asking for help in my behalf, because I have the necesary time to help myself. I suggest the Mozilla guys to investigate the facts. Sincery yours, Edgardo Colombo Buenos Aires.

프로그램 추가 제거 창에서 제거시 파이어폭스 충돌이라고 나오고 파폭으로 다시 받아서 설치해도 동일한 현상이 계속 됩니다.

크롬 + 코모도 + 파이어폭스 셋다 포기할수 없어서 그냥 쓰고 있습니다만... 알려 드릴 필요가 있을것 같아서 질문글 올렸습니다.

When I updated to Firefox 25.0.1 all my add-ons were gone so I downloaded some of them again. My problem is with Flashgot when I downloaded it I can add the Flashgot (thunderbolt) sign to the toolbar, but the Flashgot media icon (which looks like a cinema reel) is not visible.

So basically when I try to add add-ons I right click on the Firefox toolbar which gives me the option to "remove or add items" by dragging them. So I dragged Flashgot media (called FG Media) (which is not visible in the menu by the way) and predictably was not visible on the Firefox add-ons toolbar

Anyone know what's up?

When I run Firefox it just churns away and expires. Sometimes, if I just leave it, after ten/twenty minutes it will run v, v slowly. I have uninstalled and installed Firefox. I have the most recent version of Avira [14] and have removed Firefox and added to permitted applications, still no joy. Am writing this from another Browser. Also if I close Firefox and then try to restart I keep getting the Firefox is running... Getting seriously annoying now. I can only assume that Firefox is not quite up-to-date with Avira's version yet. The other browser runs without problem.

Any attempt to get to gmail (from google search click on gmail, gmail or gmail.com in url, etc.) results in Unable to Connect -- Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at mail.google.com. This happens only in Firefox running on Server 2008.

I have been googling problem and have cleared cookies, and re-installed. Still have this problem.

I can get into gmail from IE no problem and from Firefox that is running on XP. It is just my machines that are running on Server 2008. This problem just appeared around November 21st.

Thanks for any help!

I received an email from AppleID@customers.appstore.36.ca asking me to update my account info. As my cc expiry date had just changed so I thought oh damn I forgot. I put in my updated info, then when I hit submit, at least I think that was what was on the bottom, don't honestly remember, any way a screen for "Reported Web Forgery" popped up. I got out of there I did not go any farther but did my information go anywhere? Looking closer at the email, there it DHgate.com web address at the bottom. Please put my mind at ease! Thank you. I just need to know if my info went any where.
